Clinicians Hi-Dose Vit C is a research- based nutrient fornulation containing 2 forms of Vitamin C that may effectively support and enhance the immune system.
- Together with influenza, glandular fever is responsible for the largest number of absent days from school.
- Caused by the Epstein Barr virus, glandular fever occurs most commonly in late chiildhood, although adults are also susceptible, especially when under extreme stress.
- The acute phase of glandular fever, characterised by swollen glands, an increase in temperature, sore throat and extreme tiredness and lethargy may last two to three weeks and the effects can linger for months or even years.
A virus is an insidious and stealthy invader. It is not a living cell, but a piece of genetic material that takes up residence in the body's cells. A virus does not have enough genes (in the form of DNA) to reproduce itself. Instead it commandeers the body's cells own DNA and orders the DNA to produce more virus and virus-carrying cells. Thus it hijacks the body's genes and uses them for its own purposes.
Viruses invade the body's immune defences, infecting white blood cells whose role it is to digest injured cells and foreign particles. Infected cells promote the spread and persistence of the infection and they inactivate T-killer cells whose function is to clear the original infection. The result is on-going sickness and immune suppression.
1. The more ill a person is, the more Vitamin C can be tolerated before diarrhea is experienced. The increased tolerance is proportional to the toxicity of the infection.
2. Increasing the frequency of taking a specialised Vitamin C combination formula can increase tolerance and improve uptake in the body by 50% or more.
3. Using the maximum possible intake will give maximum relief of symptoms which can result in the greatest shortening of the infection and reduction in complications caused by the virus.
4. Short delays in taking doses may prolong the infection.
5. Symptoms may return rapidly if dose levels are not maintained long enough.
6. The point of bowel tolerance is easily sensed by the patient, as is the required duration of treatment.
Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional.
