Death by measles in this age?

How would you react if your unvaccinated child or grandchild died from measles?

DR. GIFFORD JONES

How would you react if your unvaccinated child or grandchild died from measles? No doubt your response would be one of agonizing grief.

What you wouldn’t know is this personal tragedy did not have to happen in 2014. Unfortunately, I bet not one doctor in a thousand knows how Dr. Frederick Klenner successfully treated this viral infection over 60 years ago.

Doctors are not the only ones unaware of Dr. Klenner. One of Canada’s leading newspapers reported there was no specific antiviral treatment for this highly infectious disease. It was wrong. This editor committed a major error by not reading history.

Worldwide measles has been, in the past, one of the major causes of death among children. It’s estimated before the measles vaccine became available nearly three million children died every year from this disease.

Today, in this country about 95% of children are vaccinated against measles. But in some areas the rate drops as low as 50% making these children susceptible to infection. Particularly, when they travel abroad and bring the virus back home or when foreigners carry it to North America. Now, several cases of measles have appeared in Canada.

Measles should not be looked on as a minor disease, as death occurs in about 1-2% of cases. The complications are far from minor. Some children develop pneumonia, diarrhea and dehydration, encephalitis with swelling of the brain and in some cases blindness.

So who is Dr. Klenner? He graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 1936 and entered practice in Reidsville, South Carolina. He believed that natural remedies were safer than drugs.

In the ‘Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C’, Dr. Lendon H. Smith outlines numerous cases on how Dr. Klenner quickly cured a variety of viral diseases by the use of intravenous Vitamin C.

He reports of a 10-month-old baby with high fever, watery nose, dry cough, red eyes and rash characteristic of measles. Dr. Klenner gave the baby 1,000 mg of Vitamin C every four hours and the temperature dropped, the cough stopped and the rash disappeared.

Another child with measles developed encephalitis, became stuporous and responded only to pain. He cured the child by both intravenous and oral Vitamin C.

A 23-year-old man with mumps developed swollen testicles, the size of tennis balls. After 1,000 mg of intravenous Vitamin C the pain subsided. During the next 24 hours he was given 2,000 mg of intravenous C every two hours. His fever returned to normal in 36 hours and he was up and about in 60 hours.

Dr. Lendon Smith describes how Klenner discovered intravenous C could also dry up chicken pox lesions and subdue viral hepatitis. But Dr. Klenner’s most important study involved the polio epidemic of 1948-50. He treated 60 polio victims using intravenous doses of Vitamin C, up to 200,000 mg every 12 hours for four days. None developed paralysis. He soon learned that the sicker the patient the higher the dose required.

Vitamin C works by entering all cells where it neutralizes toxins and viruses. It’s been aptly said that, “Unless white blood cells are saturated with Vitamin C, they are like soldiers without bullets.”

It is hard to know how this renewal of measles virus in Canada will end. Some people with measles fail to follow instructions to isolate themselves. But how tragic that some may die due to the dust collecting on the work of Dr. Klenner.

Critics claim that Vitamin C is ineffective. But they’re all making the same error of failing to use sufficient amounts for a sufficient period of time.

Klenner’s advice to doctors was right to the point. He said he had never seen a patient who could not benefit by Vitamin C. He added that while doctors are pondering the diagnosis, they should be giving plenty of Vitamin C.
