Instructions on How to Use Vitamin C for colds and head, throat and chest flu
Caution: If used with symptoms that are chronic or without fever, little or no phlegm, or without clear indication of infection, recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon for first hour and not with 1 teaspoon as given in the instructions below. In cases of acute flu and cold symptoms, I have started at 1 teaspoon several times and have worked up to 1.75 teaspoons before backing off. This will vary from person to person.
Although vitamin C is very safe for the body and can be tolerated at high dosages if increased in gradual amounts, an excess will cause stomach cramps and/or diarrhea (act as a laxative if desired).
If you have experienced stomach cramps at 1 teaspoon, i would wait until the symptoms go away and try again starting at 1/4 teaspoon. Vitamin C is powerful for immunity and as an antioxident.
(Long term high dosages of vitamin C may be a concern for people with too high Iron content in blood , since vitamin c helps the body digest iron from food).
This is intended for short term treatment only.
Get some crystalized absorbic acid (vitamin C) . If you have a Trader Joes in your area or an equivalent, that where I get mine out here in California.
Every hour, you can GRADUALLY increase 1/4 teaspoon max, but stop or back off once you start getting any kind of stomach cramping.
Keep this up every hour , in 4 -12 hours you’ll get over the hump.
I usually see results in 4 hours.
