Vitamin C Dosage For Chronic Diseases And The Importance of a Dose Plan

By Arturo Galindo, Cert. Nutritional Therapist

A vitamin C dosage plan can help you prevent disease and preserve good health. And it can also help you fight many diseases when your body is under stress.   

Having a dose plan can help you stay healthy, end allergies and infections. And it can also help your body heal from other chronic diseases. This includes heart disease and cancer.

In this blog post I tell my personal experience with the viral disease shingles. And how I designed a dose plan to help my body heal using only vitamin C.

Important:  Ascorbic acid or vitamin C is more than a vitamin.
Why? It regulates many functions in your body to make sure they're doing their best job in keeping you healthy!

What is a Vitamin C Dosage Plan?

A vitamin C dosage plan includes the following parts:

  1. The Dose, or amount of vitamin C to take at t particular time 
  2. The Frequency, or how many times during the day
  3. The Duration, or for how long or how many days 

In a previous blog post I covered the dose, or amount of vitamin C to take as part of your maintenance or therapy plan. 

In this blog post I cover the importance of frequency and duration. And how these work together with the dose amount to ensure most health benefits.

The Goal: Increase Average Blood Levels

Vitamin C can drastically improve your health. This can only happen when you have the highest average blood levels of vitamin C in your body every day. 

Average levels of vitamin C in the blood increase as you take more. Especially when you divide the doses, or the amounts of vitamin C that you take at particular times.

Multiple doses will not only increase the average levels of vitamin C in the blood. It will also reduce the periods of time when blood levels are low. 

In other words. Multiple doses can protect your body against disease for the greater part of the day, instead of a few hours.

But How do you do raise your blood levels and keep them high? You need a vitamin C dosage plan that you can adjust based on how you feel.

Design a Vitamin C Dosage Plan That Works For You

Let’s assume you’re healthy and only take 1 gram of vitamin C each morning. This is your maintenance dose

But flu season is coming, and you don’t want to be sick. You buy more vitamin C 1-gram tablets and decide to take 3 grams of vitamin C per day, instead of 1-gram. This is your therapy dose.

But before you start, you need a vitamin C dosage plan to fight the flu.

One option is to have a single larger dose....

One option is to take all 3 grams at once, let’s say in the morning. In this case, you’ll raise your blood levels for a limited time, only about 4 hours. You will not protect your body for the greater part of the day.

The better option is to divide the doses...

The other better option is to take 1 gram in morning, 1 gram in the afternoon, and 1 gram at night.

In this case, your average blood levels will be much higher. You’ll be better protected and prepared to fight the flu.

You Are Ready To Design Your Plan...

You decide that the therapy plan to protect your body during the flu season is the following:

  • Dose = 1 gram
  • Frequency = 3 times per day
  • Duration = Flu season

After the flu season you can go back to your maintenance dose, whatever maintenance dose you have.

You can adjust your plan as needed...

Every time you are sick or think you’ll be sick, you can adjust the dose amount, frequency and duration of your plan. You can have dosage plans to fight allergies or infections, and you have full control. 

Remember that animals can adjust the vitamin C dosage in their bodies.  They do this to stay healthy and fight disease.

This study shows how rats produce enough vitamin C that's equal  to between  5 and 15 grams in a healthy 70 kg adult person.

My Vitamin C Dosage Plan to Heal from Shingles

This is my story on how I treated shingles with only vitamin C, or ascorbic acid.

I was only able to do this after I became skilled at taking vitamin C.

I do not recommend other people to do the same.

At least not until you know your body or are able to assess the risks and work with your doctor.

About 5 years ago, I got infected with the shingles virus.

Shingles is a viral infection caused by the chickenpox or varicella virus. It produces a painful rash and appears as blisters in your body. 

A doctor said I got shingles as a side effect from an allergy medication. At that time, I was not taking enough vitamin C and was still suffering from allergies. 

I assessed my options and decided that I didn't want to take the risk to go to the hospital and take more medication.

Instead, I used liposomal vitamin C, the most effective oral deliver form of ascorbic acid. 

This form protects the vitamin C from the acids in the gut. The results is that the absorption rate is higher than other oral forms. 

This means that Liposomal vitamin C is more effective than powders or tablets

It compares to intravenous vitamin C since it has a very high absorption rate in the blood.  

Here's the vitamin C dosage plan that I followed to heal my body from shingles:

  • Dose amount: 3 grams (1 gram = 1 packet of Liposomal Vitamin C)
  • Frequency: 5 times per day every 3 hours
  • Duration: 5 days or until recovered

In only 5 days I was able to kill the shingles virus and go back to normal. I was only left with a small mark in my forefront. 

And as a result, I learned more about vitamin C in those 5 days than all the time before then.
