One can still get smallpox vaccine if a need arises. As for Ebola, after 4 decades of studying therapeutic nutrition and being in good health at 81, I have some thoughts on that disease. The symptoms are those of rampant scurvy. Thus I would suspect that taking massive doses of Vitamin C if ill would help. Also, animals our size produce their own Vitamin C in the amount of 2,000 to 4,000 milligrams a day or 2 to 4 grams a day. I have been taking from 2 to 6 grams a day for 40 years. You have to take it 3 or 4 times a day as your body excretes or uses it rather quickly.
I once helped a woman stung by yellow jackets on her neck who had forgotten her epipen before going camping. When I came upon the camp sites MASH tent her eyes were swollen shut and she was choking. I immediately gave her 10 grams of Vitamin C and in 15 minutes her eyes were open and she had stopped choking. At 1/2 hour I gave her another 5 grams, and her face and body stopped being swollen. I stayed with her for 8 hours and gave her 5 grams every hour. Then I left her with the bottle and said take it as you need it. The next day I went back to check on her and and was told she had walked the 4 mile trail back to her car.
It has been given intravenously in doses as high as 100 and 200 grams a day. For more info, Google: High dosage vitamin C; Intravenous high dosage vitamin C; also a Dr Klenner(?) in the Carolinas used it successfully for snake bite; also a PhD scientist whose name I can’t remember. I am health at 81, but the memory is not as good.
Interesting about Vitamin C. Have you ever seen it (or any other vitamin/dosage) help with migraines? I have a friend who really has terrible problems with them. She’s even trying a few Botox injections, gives just short-time relief. But she’s desperate. She’s tried everything through the years. I’m hoping she won’t mess her face up with Botox,,pretty girl.
Looks like a scary error, or rather, another one.
