Vitamin C – with comments from Linda & Dr. Gordon

Linda’s comments: Well I would blow their boxers off…I take 16,000 to 24,000 daily of the BioEnergyC from My dogs get a minimum of 4000 mg in a one gallon water bowl….the five gallon water dish gets 20,000 mgs. I quiet frankly sick and tired of hearing the NIH and FDA and the pharmaceuticals squawk about taking high dosing of VitC….poor fellows, don’t have a clue…

Dr. Gordon’s Comments:

Everything  you think you know about vitamin C is probably more than 50% wrong  and, if you relied on this official appearing document re vitamin C, you would not use it.  The attached document is from NIH so it gives you all the negative but you must know all that too.

But I am providing you with the contrary opinion. You will be amazed at how the right hand of the government does not know what the left hand is doing! FDA has approved vitamin C for treating one type of cancer!  That opens the door to great speculation and further research about non-toxic cancer therapies and I am excited to incorporate into this program the power of PEMF, which makes each cell ALKALINE and restores transmembrane potential. So I believe I have two or more non-toxic approaches that need to be looked at concurrently and incorporated with my FIGHT program for long term success.

Using IV VIT C with  my FIGHT program and PEMF ( Pulsed Electromagnetic  Field Therapy )  you will see and feel results  with PEMF on top of my FIGHT program, I am clearly  getting younger!

There are other ways to enhance the effectiveness of high dose IV Vitamin C in treating cancer and using it alone I do not find that IV VIT C is very often curative but it almost always helps and buys time for other therapies to be instituted.

Remember   we all need to improve outcomes, as our patients pay cash. We are not endowed by Government funds like our brethren using their chemo/radiation.  They are generally covered and   just bill the system and are ok no matter what the outcome.  We are NOT OK unless we turn out superior results and have data that shows we can beat mainstream outcomes hands down.

This NIH authoritative appearing well– referenced document would make anyone think oral low dose (2000 mg and under) Vitamin C is dangerous and causes cancer and heart disease. It appears to be fully referenced up to date through November 2009 yet it is missing an important point; somehow IV vitamin C WITH K-3 is now FDA approved for treating bladder cancer!! After all if anyone knew that vitamin C could be FDA approved for one cancer then some doctors would have some interest in trying it in other cancers just like the oncologists do everyday.

How can I and many of our colleagues be successfully using oral and IV vitamin C to keep Cancer patients alive far longer than their oncologists predict and still be considered by mainstream oncologists to be so wrong?  They tell their patients to never use vitamin C!

This report even has recommendations about not exceeding what they have established now, as their safe upper limit of oral vitamin C at 2000 mg MAX. Yet it is hard for them to ignore entirely what we are doing with cancer so they throw in some words to try to sound plausible with their otherwise very negative review of vitamin C. This is BURIED in the attached report but of course they have their numbers about what the maximum serum levels achievable with oral vitamin c vs.  the high serum levels achievable with IV Vitamin C. Those that are interested to get to the bottom of this mystery will find that vitamin c deserves your serious attention, IV and ORAL because there is always the rest of the story.

This is just one paragraph from many articles you may want to review once you read my comments: ’The bottom line is: Apatone selectively targets and kills tumor cells using non-toxic biochemistry that protects surrounding healthy tissue.” Licensed in 2004 to IC-MedTech, Inc., a California-based biotechnology company, the first clinical trial began in 2005 to evaluate the drug in prostate cancer patients. The clinical studies, which were conducted at Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio and with Dr. Ananias Diokno at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich., examined the safety and effectiveness in 17 end-stage prostate cancer patients for 12 weeks. These patients took Apatone orally each day. The trials were supported by the Beaumont Foundation, Summa Health System and IC-MedTech.

Yet this is the best that the NIH report can offer the informed patients and physicians trying to help cancer patients. They admit there could be some discrepancy in the research but clearly tell no one that vitamin C is working when mixed with the correct form of vitamin K-3 (Apatone), which increases its oxidative capacity.

Remember this  work using vitamin C  for cancer  goes back several years now  and it consists IV vitamin C with the correct form of vitamin K, which unfortunately it appears that  most physicians  have never found  the correct form since there appears to be as many as 6 molecules being sold as vitamin K-3 and some are toxic. Yet in the lecture I will deliver for The Oxidative Training Workshop during IMOSAIC on April 7th at the Minneapolis conference, sponsored by ACAM, AHIMA, AAEM and ICIM, I will educate you about how easily you can kill the therapeutic effect when you are trying to master oxidative therapies with something as simple as giving NAC or GLUTATHIONE concurrently.

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential dietary component [1].

Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and certain neurotransmitters; vitamin C is also involved in protein metabolism [1,2]. Collagen is an essential component of connective tissue, which plays a vital role in wound healing. Vitamin C is also an important physiological antioxidant [3] and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) [4]. Ongoing research is examining whether vitamin C, by limiting the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity, might help prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases in which oxidative stress plays a causal role. In addition to its biosynthetic and antioxidant functions, vitamin C plays an important role in immune function [4] and improves the absorption of nonheme iron [5], the form of iron present in plant-based foods. Insufficient vitamin C intake causes scurvy, which is characterized by fatigue or lassitude, widespread connective tissue weakness, and capillary fragility [1,2,4,6-9].

FREE housecleaning for those undergoing chemo

If you know any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning – once per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women. It’s our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care. Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along.

Dr. Jemsek’s recent letter regarding daughter’s cancer

NOTE:  If you have Lyme disease DO NOT DONATE…..

 Members and Friends
The courage the Jemsek family has shown facing life’s hurdles has given us a example of how to deal with our own adversities.  As they face renewed challenges, it is time for us all to reach out and do what we can to support them in their hour of need.
Please read this letter from Dr. Jemsek to the Lyme Community.  While Lyme patients cannot be direct donors, we can ask our healthy friends, family members and neighbors to consider this humanitarian request for a fine family that needs our support.  Please recirculate this message widely and as quickly as possible. 
Thank you,
Dear patients, friends, and family,

          My wife Kay and I are writing to you today to make a somber request on behalf of our six year old daughter, Jordan.  As most of you may already know, last September 2009 Jordan was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). She received outstanding  care during several rounds of extended chemotherapy while hospitalized for 6 ½ months at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte at the Hemby Cancer center.  When Jordan was declared in remission  we were finally able to bring  her home on Easter day this Spring.  After several joyful months at home with Jordan, this past week we were devastated to learn that Jordan has relapsed. In the upcoming weeks, she will begin receiving chemotherapy in preparation for a bone marrow transplant that she will have later this winter.

          Last year, after much research aided by the excellent support of the Hemby physicians in Charlotte and the Pediatric Oncology Department at Children’s Hospital in Washington, DC,  we were already exploring the option for Jordan to have a bone marrow transplant in the event that the chemotherapy was ineffective.  Unfortunately, neither members of her family, nor those in the national donor registry provided a satisfactory match.  Unfortunately, at this time we are left without another option and must proceed with a bone marrow transplant for Jordan to survive.  We anticipate that the transplant will occur in March/April 2011 at Children’s Hospital in DC after Jordan undergoes an estimated 3 months of induction chemotherapy at the Hemby Center; she is on her way to the hospital with us today.   In order to increase the likelihood that we find a better match for Jordan, we are asking friends and family to participate in joining the National Marrow Donor Program. Because patients are most likely to match someone of their own race or ethnicity, please be aware that Jordan comes from a Scottish, Irish, and Ukrainian background. We have outlined the simple steps below in how one can get signed up to be part of this registry.

          For all of our patients and others suffering from  Lyme Borreliosis Complex, the highly disturbing irony is that the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) does recognize chronic Lyme disease while the general community does not. As part of the NMDP medical guidelines, patients with  ‘chronic Lyme disease ‘ may not register (details on the linked site below).  However, we would humbly request that those individuals struggling with Lyme Borreliosis encourage other family members and friends to consider joining the registry.

          As for those of you wanting to be tested specifically as a match for Jordan, i.e. a designated donation, due to the complicated process and cost of being tested privately, we instead recommend and request that you enter the general registry. We greatly appreciate all of the prayers and overwhelming support that our family has received, and we ask for you all to continue to pray as we continue on our journey towards Jordan’s recovery from this devastating disease. If you have questions, please contact Elizabeth Ballas at Jemsek.   As before, regular updates will be posted to under keyword jordanjemsek.
God Bless,

Dr. and Mrs. Joseph G. Jemsek

meningitis vaccine

Linda’s comments….ok folks LISTEN UP and pay attention….Dr Gordon sent this post to his private health care professionals email group commenting on what Dr Mercola had sent to his newsletter lists….IT IS ALL TRUE…..I like the idea of organizing either patient office base, OR parents who are concerned….If you do organize a group make sure you research your STATE LAWS on vaccinations….also check the State Laws where your child will attend college.  It is time we ALL start taking a stand against being forced by the government and schools to take the toxic vaccines…..Personally I would NEVER advise anyone to take vaccines….my heart breaks for our military …they are forced and a large percentage of them become very sick and are a mess when discharged from the military….what is worse is our federal government DROPS THEM ON THEIR HEAD AND DON’T CARE……

We all need to stop the nonsense….take a stand….for groups of parents, groups in your neighborhoods, church and start making plans on how YOU are going to protect your families….enough is enough….TAKE A STAND TODAY…
Q: I would be very appreciative of professional advice regarding our 18 year old daughter who has to have a “mandatory” meningitis vaccine for admittance to college this September.  After reading all the material that Dr. Gordon has presented on the forum, many of us as parents and clinicians hesitate and fear both the vaccine demanded for admission and its side effects.  Thank you for your comments. 
signed by a parent….

Australia has finally recognized the direct link between flu vaccine and death. This is the kind of information you must get to your patients so they can stand up against the forces that will attack them for not vaccinating their children. The authorities saw enough convulsion and high fevers that they banned seasonal flu vaccines in children under 5.

Please stay fully informed on the latest developments in vaccine related facts as your credibility is on the line. Under the Vaccinations forum on FACT, you will find what the best things to do if you must be vaccinated, as well as forms and websites that will protect your child from “mandatory” requirements by schools.

A new book by Sherri Tenpenny is now available so in one affordable up to date fully referenced material you will be able to arm your patients with the facts they must have when their neighbor refuses to let their vaccinated children play with their unvaccinated child (see : to order). Continued

ABC Responds to Article on Herb-Drug Interactions

Linda’s comment:  Amazing isn’t it that a group of doctors would embarrass themselves so tragically by the many mistakes they have made regarding Herb-Drug Interactions in Journal of the American College of Cardiology? They expect us to respect their avenues of treatment plans with using such poor judgement on making statements like they did with this article. 
This is why I preach to all of you to do research if you are not sure about taking an herb with a pharmaceutical.  Yes of course there are herbs that will react differently when taking pharmaceutical drugs.  However, there are times it can compliment one to the other.  People who are on Chemotherapy/Radiation can and do take the “organic” Agaricus Mushroom from Brazil.  In fact we have seen many cancer patients on chemo respond more quickly when taking this Brazil mushroom.  Mushrooms are not mushrooms are not mushrooms AND you need to make sure what country the mushroom came from.  Most mushrooms come from China and/or Japan and these do NOT have the potency that the mushroom from Brazil has.  This is just one example of how pharmaceuticals can work with a choice of treatment which is stepping outside of the box.

 (Austin, TX) At least several times per year an article is published in a medical journal that purports to provide health professionals and the public with useful information on the safety of herbs and herbal dietary supplements. Instead, what sometimes occurs is an article written by people with apparently little to no expertise in the subject area of herbal medicine and medicinal plant research and likewise apparently peer reviewed—if peer reviewed at all—by reviewers with little botanical knowledge or expertise. Yesterday, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology published such an article.1

This particular article has so many flaws and errors that it is difficult to know where to begin to critically review it.


Milk Thistle Cuts Liver Toxicity from ALL Chemotherapy

Full article:


The study “provides preliminary evidence that milk thistle may be a safe, effective, supportive-care agent,” the researchers concluded in an online report in Cancer.

“Milk thistle needs to be studied further, to see how effective it is for a longer course of treatment, and whether it works well in reducing liver inflammation in other types of cancers and with other types of chemotherapy,” Kelly said in a press release issued by the American Cancer Society, publisher of Cancer. “However, our results are promising as there are no substitute medications for treating liver toxicity.”

Unwitting Cell Donor

Linda’s comments:  This is a book well worth the read.  It is a sad book and one that will disgust you but shows what we are up against with our healthcare and government.
