Dr Nicholas Gonzalez – What Should I Eat? (Part 1)
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez Interview: The Quest For The Cures
Allan Smith was near death in a coma and about to be taken off life support, with swine flu, non-functioning „white“ lungs and leukemia when he was given high-dose intravenous vitamin C, followed by a new oral „nano-sized“ vitamin C product that anyone can buy or make in our kitchens. (See instructions later in this report.)
He started to revive from the coma when he was given daily doses of intravenous vitamin C ranging from 25 grams to 100 grams a day.
Then a new hospital doctor didn’t believe that vitamin C caused the improvement in his condition so he lowered the dose to 2 grams a day, wherebye Mr. Smith continued to improve, but far more slowly.
That’s when his family started giving him 6 grams of liposomal „nano“ vitamin C a day, orally. He continued to improve and today he is healthy and his leukemia is gone.
The video is 17 minutes long. Towards the end you’ll see him being given a 1 gram packet of LivOn Brand Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, which is a very high quality commercially available version of liposomal „nano“ vitamin C that costs about a dollar per gram (1,000 mg) of vitamin C.
Or go here to read, in detail, what happened. This includes details of studies that show that IV vitamin C can effectively fight cancer because it can deliver high enough vitamin C blood levels, where oral tablets or capsules cannot create high enough blood levels.
Liposomes are ultra-small „nano“ size nutrient containers that dock up to the same material that coats our cell walls. Because they are made up of the same material in the same configuration, liposomal nutrients easily dock up to cell walls and deliver the nutrients they contain into our cells.
Reports say that six grams of oral liposomally-carried vitamin C is equal in delivering vitamin C inside cells, where it does its work, to 50 grams of intravenous vitamin C. This is a bit confusing, because studies show that IV vitamin C creates higher vitamin C blood levels.
However, blood levels don’t necessarily equate to levels inside cells.
Water soluble nutrients like vitamin C have a difficult time passing through the barrier that coat cell walls. The barrier on cell walls is made up of the same oil-based bi-layer that liposomes have. This oil-based barrier is meant to control what gets into cells and what comes out of cells.
Because it is made of the same oil-based barrier that cell walls have, liposomal vitamin C is transported through the cell walls much more efficiently then vitamin C not carried in liposomes because the liposomes that carry vitamin C fuse with the same material and configuration that resides on cell walls.
Tablets Versus Intravenous Versus Liposomes
Putting vitamin C or any water-soluble nutrient in liposomes can reportedly deliver as much as 90% absorption of the nutrient into the cells in our bodies.
For point of reference, intravenous vitamin C reportedly gives about 20% absorption into cells while taking high potency tablets of vitamin C reportedly gives considerably less.
So, orally-taken liposomal vitamin C works better than higher doses of injectable intravenous vitamin C at delivering vitamin C inside cells, where it does its work – and far better than vitamin C tablets.
This is a huge breakthrough!
Remember that dose, six grams a day, because it saved the New Zealand man and cured his leukemia, so it’s likely that six grams a day might cure other cancers, or other diseases, too.
LivOn Labs has a collection of studies on liposomes. To view them
And please take a tour of their web site. It has lots of valuable information, including a study
that looked at blood levels of vitamin C delivered with liposomes.
Several sites, like racehorseherbal
have detailed scientific information about liposomal nutrients. Note the statement towards the bottom of that page where highly respected vitamin C researcher, Thomas Levy, MD. says that if he had to choose between intravenous vitamin C and liposomal vitamin C for a critical medical application with a patient he would choose liposomal vitamin C.
Also worth a quick scan for their information on liposomal vitamin C is this web site.
This booklet, PC Liposomal Encapsulation Technology, by Robert Milne, MD,
details the many significant health benefits that liposomes can give us.
Why Some Researchers Still Think Vitamin C Doesn’t Cure Cancer
Dr. Mark Levine, a US National Institutes of Health researcher, said that the reason vitamin C hadn’t been shown to cure cancer was because researchers had focused on using oral vitamin C, which only gives a few percent delivery into our cells.
He said vitamin C has to be given intravenously to get the kind of high dose delivery into cells that is effective against cancers. (Until now – with liposomal vitamin C.)
See an article about Dr. Levine at: http://www.michaelmooney.net/AttemptingtomakethecaseforvitaminC.htm
Then see a published study with three cases of IV vitamin C cancer cures: http://www.cmaj.ca/content/174/7/937.full.pdf+html
Good For All of Us
If you don’t have cancer, reasons to take liposomal vitamin C include healthier skin, because vitamin C stimulates collagen production. Skin is mostly made up of collagen. In fact, collagen is the „glue“ that holds our entire body together. Having healthier collage also means healthier joints, ligaments, tendons and bones.
Better collagen makes stronger, more flexible bones that absorb impact better for less fall-down fractures, according to published research.
Vitamin C also improves immune strength for as much as 85% less colds and flu and reduces the risk of numerous diseases.
For instance, Fredrick R. Klenner, MD, (October 22, 1907 – May 20, 1984) who was the first medical doctor to use high dose intravenous vitamin C cured 60 out of 60 cases of polio, as well as numerous other viral diseases.
Additionally, higher doses of vitamin C can help to lower elevated blood pressure, according to several studies.
One person I know had their elevated blood pressure drop 10 points in both systolic and diastolic into the healthy range a few days after starting two packets a day of LivOn brand Lypo-Spheric vitamin C.
While liposomal vitamin C is likely the first line nutrient when cancer is addressed, liposomal glutathione might also be enlisted.
If someone had liver cancer or hepatitis or another liver disease, or were recovering from liver cancer surgery, liposomal glutathione is the logical first line nutrient to consider to improve liver health. One animal study showed that when a liver cancer-causing agent was introduced to the animals, IV glutathione administration caused regression of the tumors, resulting in the animals surviving.
Another such study showed that increasing glutathione reversed lethal acetaminophen (Tylenol) liver toxicity.
Buying Liposomal Nutrients
I bought LivOn Brand Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C from HealthE Goods. Several other vendors sell it, including HealthE Goods, THEGREENPHARMACY, GoldenTigerLipids, Amazon and others.
When I first bought from HealthE Goods they were discounting LivON products. LivOn Labs has since mandated that the lowest price its vendors can sell their Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C for is $29.95 for a box of 30 packets. But some vendors are selling it for more.
I haven’t seen LivOn liposomal nutrients in health food stores in Southern California – yet. I hope they find favor and get wide-spread distribution.
Retailer health food stores won’t have to worry about competing with internet discount sites because of LivOn’s „lowest retail price“ mandate.
There are only three LivOn brand liposomal products at present: vitamin C, GSH – glutathione and AGE Blocker, a multi-nutrient formula that highlights benfotiamine, an especially anti-aging form of vitamin B1.
long-time health-food pioneer, Dr. Kurt Donsbach’s website sells several liquid liposomal products, including vitamin C, glutathione, resveratrol, CoQ10, curcumin and Re-Lev-It, a liposomal pain reliever. He makes two sizes of several products and his prices are among the lowest of all the liposomal nutrient manufacturers. I usually buy from LetsTalkHealth.
Other liposomal nutrient manufacturers include ReadiSorb, which makes liposomal glutathione, melatonin and vitamin B12 and Lipoflow. (Lipoflow has the laboratory that makes the LivOn products, but the LivOn products are easier to find as they are sold by more vendors.)
ReadiSorb liposomal glutathione was investigated in a study published in the medical journal Atherosclerosis, that showed very interesting beneficial cardiovascular effects. This gives us an idea of the quality of this company. They’re involved in real research.
There’s also Dr’s Best Curcumin Phytosome (Meriva) liposomal curcumin, in capsules. As expected, there will be more manufacturers selling liposomal nutrients.
It’s on the crest of a wave of superior delivery of nutrients that can cure cancer and other diseases, so of course, there will be more liposomal nutrient companies. Therefore, this article does not provide a complete list of liposomal nutrient companies, as more continue to come to the marketplace.
Where the LivOn vitamin C product costs about $1 a gram, and Dr. Donsbach’s costs about 50 cents/gram, doing it yourself (DIY) costs about 15 cents a gram.
Scientist Brooks Bradley, who created the DIY method says that DIY is between 50 and 70% as potent as the commercial products because the commercial products are made with high-tech lab equipment. But even at 50 to 70%, DIY would be as effective as intravenous vitamin C.
Bradley confirmed that the DIY method yielded liposomes that are small enough to be effective. To read what he said, click here.
Here is a YOUTUBE video showing one way to make it.
Click here for more detailed instructions and a way to test for potency from scientist Brooks Bradley.
But the method I like most comes from Krispin Sullivan. Her method gives you more potency in less volume. Click here to read it.
Also for those who want to get good at making liposomal nutrients, there’s a Yahoo group for you.
To Make Liposomal Vitamin C (Or any nutrient)
You need an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. There are basically three sizes that are easily found.
There are 1 liter ultrasonic jewelry cleaners like the New Trent 7810 Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner for $35.95.
Then there’s a 2.5 liter Chicago Jewelry Cleaner for $74.99. The bigger machine is reported to create a stronger ultrasonic signal, which yields more smaller liposomes that deliver intracellular nutrients better.
And there’s a 3 liter professional cleaner by DSA for $149.99, which I use. This machine may create the most smaller liposomes.
I bought non-GMO soy lecithin, made by Now Foods.
Note that the commercial liposomal vitamin C manufacturers use the sodium ascorbate form of vitamin C, which is reported to have signficantly better intracellular delivery than the ascorbic acid form of vitamin C.
For my first batch of liposomal vitamin C I used ascorbic acid. But now I’m using sodium ascorbate.
You can make liposomal forms of other nutrients, too. I intend on making liposomal resveratrol, CoQ10, glutathione and some others.
Caution: Liposomes Can Work Too Well
Because of the tremendous input of nutrients that happen with liposomal delivery, it is possible to experience what is known as a Herxheimer Reaction if you have too much too fast.
What happens when there is an Herxheimer Reaction is that because the nutrient delivery is extremely effective viruses and other invading organisms that are in our bodies die fast in great numbers.
When this happens our bodies have to excrete the unusually high amount of die-off.
So far two people have reported to me what appear to be Herxheimer Reactions using liposomal nutrients.
One person started taking liposomal vitamin C, glutathione and resveratrol several times a day and found themselves coughing up what could have been phlegm for several days, but the consistency of what they coughed up was exactly like the liposomal materials they had taken.
It was as if they had a cold, with normal discharges – but the discharges were liposomal material, and without the inflammatory pain and debilitation that a real cold causes. This resolved within a week.
The message here is to start with a low dose of the liposomal nutrient, like one dose or two doses a day and take that for a week or two to acclimate to it.
I take liposomal nutrients twice a day. But if I was dealing with cancer or another disease I would likely take liposomal vitamin C six times a day, as the LivOn product, because it is documented to work.
UPDATE: One person with breast cancer’s personal experience.
An 80-year old friend has breast cancer. In February, 2012, the tumor size was a 6. She began taking 1 gram of LivOn Lipospheric Vitamin C six times a day and has experienced a consistent shrinking of the tumor size, which continues to amaze her doctor. The doctor measured the tumor as 2.5 in November, 2012.
Vitamin C Saves Man Dying of Viral Pneumonia in New Zealand
The Allan Smith Story – TV Documentary
Allan Smith, a New Zealand Dairy farmer, contracted Swine Flu while away on vacation in Fiji. When he returned home, the flu quickly evolved into severe pneumonia which left him in a coma on life support in the Intensive Care Unit. Chest x-rays showed the lungs were completely filled with fluid with an “opaque” appearance called “white out”. After three weeks of this, Allan’s doctors asked the family permission to turn off the machines and let him die. Allan’s wife Sonia had a brother with some medical knowledge, so he stepped in and said, “you haven’t tried everything, You have got to try high dose IV vitamin C on Allan”. At first, the doctors resisted, saying it was useless. Next, the three sons weighed in with a persuasive argument to try the IV vitamin C, saying there was nothing to lose.
Doctors Agree to Try IV Vitamin C
The doctors were in unanimous agreement that IV vitamin C would be useless and a waste of time, and that the patient would certainly die. However, one doctor felt “slightly uneasy” with the decision to turn off life support, without first acceding to the family’s wishes, and so they reluctantly agreed to give the IV vitamin C. Their plan was to give the IV vitamin C, show it was useless, and then turn off life support.
That day, Allan Smith was given 25 grams of IV vitamin C in the evening and another 25 grams in the morning. The next day, a CAT scan of the lungs showed improving air flow and a few days later the chest x-rays showed the lungs were no longer white, indicating air movement. The improvement was dramatic, clear and plain for all to see. However, the doctors denied it was the vitamin C, and instead, attributed the improvement to “turning patient into a prone position”.
Another Battle For Vitamin C
Soon after starting the IV vitamin C, Alan could be taken off ECMO life support, and started breathing on his own. However, unexpectedly, a different physician consultant came in, took over the case and stopped the IV vitamin C. Alan Smith’s condition promptly deteriorated. Allan’s wife, Sonia, called a meeting with this new doctor to no avail. The new doctor rolled his eyes, looked up at the ceiling and uttered, “No More Vitamin C “. Not giving up so easily, the three brothers again weighed in, and demanding the IV vitamin C for dad. The three brothers again used their powers of “persuasion”, and the new doctors reluctantly gave in, restarting the life saving IV vitamin C, but only at low doses of one gram a day. The brothers said, “Mucking about with the vitamin C showed in his fathers health”. “You had to be thick not to see it.”
Oral Lyposperic Vitamin C
Allan’s condition continued to improve and was eventually transferred to a hospital closer to home, still breathing with ventilator assistance. Here, the family had yet another battle with a new doctor who again stopped the IV vitamin C. This time, the family brought in a lawyer who sent a warning letter to the hospital threatening legal action. The hospital was forced to restart the vitamin C, however, allowing only low dosage. Finally, Allan Smith was able to sit up in bed and take oral liquids. On their own, the family gave their dad 6 grams a day of oral vitamin C. This was a highly absorbable form called Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C.
Allan continued to improve and was discharged home from the hospital. At home, Allan’s neighbor John joked with him, and said, “Allan, you owe me the 15 dollars I paid to have my suit dry cleaned for your funeral, and you bugger, you came back.” They laughed together at the joke.
Dr Thomas Levy: Vitamin C & The Great Supression
The Miracle Cure: Vitamin C „Living Proof“ 60 Minutes (pt-2)
Interviewed in part two was the Principle Advisor to the Health Ministry and Senior Intensive Care Specialist, David Galler, who denied that the intravenous vitamin C was a contributing factor in the Allan Smith’s recovery. He proclaimed that the recovery could have been just as likely from a “bus driving by” as the high dose vitamin C . When asked what he would need as proof to that vitamin C is effective, he replied he would need a randomized controlled trial, such as those for new drug approval funded by a pharmaceutical company.
Three Randomized Placebo Controlled Studies
Apparently Dr Galler is unaware of three double blind placebo controlled studies of IV Vitamin C in critically ill patients in the ICU. These studies were published in Dr. Galler’s own peer-reviewed specialty medical literature. (1-5)
These three studies showed reduced mortality and reduced time on ventilators for septic and critically ill patients in the ICU setting. In addition, numerous other studies have measured blood vitamin C levels in critically ill patients in the hospital showing vitamin C is typically depleted with levels below 25 % of healthy individuals.(6-11) As Dr Levy points out in Part Four of the Series (see below), there are thousands of studies over 70 years in the medical literature showing effectiveness, and safety of vitamin C for viral illness. Dr Levy’s cites 1200 such articles supporting the use of Vitamin C.
Denying the Blatantly Obvious
Dr Galler appeared on New Zealand television claiming to be an authority and medical expert in the care of the ICU critically ill patient. To then make statements amounting to a public admission of ignorance of his own specialty literature is a profound embarrassment to him and to the Ministry of Health that appointed him Advisor. For Allan Smith’s ICU doctors to witness a patient’s dramatic recovery from sure death, and then deny the effectiveness of the treatment is astounding display of denying the obvious, and an embarrassment to the medical system in New Zealand. This is tantamount to holding up a hand in front of a person’s face who then steadfastly denies a hand is in front of his face. It can also be compared to the ridiculous scenario of “denying” that parachutes are lifesaving, and insisting on “proof” by requiring a placebo controlled study. Two men jump out of a plane, one with a parachute and one without a parachute, to “prove” parachutes are effective.
This is a Video interview of Dr Thomas Levy on New Zealand TV – Campbell Live Show. Dr Levy says he was not surprised at the dramatic recovery of Allan Smith from terminal Swine Flu pneumonia, and he says there is no doubt the vitamin C was the treatment that saved Allan Smith’s life. Dr Levy sees these types of results regularly from IV vitamin C and he expects them, just like any well trained doctor would expect prompt recovery from bacterial pneumonia with IV antibiotics.
Transcript of Interview Part Three Dr Levy
TV Journalist to Dr Levy: Why do you believe in Vitamin C?
Dr Levy: This is not a belief like its a religion. Data has accumulated over the past 75 years. Studies are published at Harvard and New England Journal. Its amazing that a result is published in a journal and still doesn’t make its way into practice
Experts say we don’t see the proof this is efficacious.
Vitamin C by injection is a registered medicine for treatment of vitamin C deficiency in Zealand. Vitamin C is registered for IV injection.
Where is the evidence it is the kind of cure you say it is?
I wrote a book, Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins. This book contains 1200 references in the medical literature over the past 85 years, vitamin C is enormously effective in eradicating infection and toxins.
Experts say we cannot recommend it. We can find no evidence? Why is this?
I would have to know the motivation because this information is readily available. It’s not information that is hidden, it’s readily available. I would suggest they are closed minded.
I know for a fact by personally using vitamin C and giving it to my patients and discussions with hundreds of other doctors. What you saw that happened to Allan Smith happens on a regular basis.
How do you know it was vitamin C? Are you singing for your supper? You passionately believe this works.
I passionately know it works. This is not something I have any uncertainly about. If someone treats a dozen patients with pneumococcal pneumonia and they recover, it is the same thing. I’ve seen and done the same thing with vitamin C.
