Intravenous Vitamin C is Proving to Be a Viable Treatment for Covid-19
By Phillip Shneider | Waking Times
Among the many possible treatments being tested with Covid-19 patients, intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) is being used successfully, according to a handful of experts. On March 26th, Dr. Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD, from Shanghai, China, wrote an article for ScienceDirect detailing his firsthand experience treating coronavirus patients with intravenous Vitamin C.
“High-dose intravenous VC has also been successfully used in the treatment of 50 moderate to severe COVID-19 patients in China,” Cheng says. “The oxygenation index was improving in real time and all the patients eventually cured and were discharged. In fact, high-dose VC has been clinically used for several decades and a recent NIH expert panel document states clearly that this regimen (1.5 g/kg body weight) is safe and without major adverse events.” – Dr. Richard Z. Cheng
Dr. Cheng’s insight on this is quite notable, not only for the fact that he has been working directly with these patients, but also for his credentials as a medical doctor, who served in the United States army as a physician and as Chief Medical Director of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.
Even prior to his article, Cheng has been updating us about the efficacy of IVC in treating Covid-19. You can read about this on the U.S. Library of Medicine website. He also reports from his YouTube channel where he had this to say:
“It was brought to my attention that one of my friends who posted the Shanghai official recommendation of IV Vitamin C to be used in the Covid-19 infection, and my friend showed me the screenshot, that a Facebook ‘fact check’ function says that ‘no, the Shanghai government did not officially recommend high dose IVC in their Covid-19 treatment.’ Well, I’d like to say it is a fact that [the] Shanghai government officially recommended high dose IVC in the treatment.” – Dr. Richard Z.
