Part 2 Early Evidence of​ the​ Healing Power of​ Vitamins
Since the​ early 1900s there has been research involving natural alternative medicine. ​
Many of​ these early researchers risked their reputations,​ careers and​ even their freedom for pursuing natural medicine research. ​
In this report we​ will identify some of​ the​ notable examples of​ physicians who came to​ identify the​ power of​ natural medicine. ​

Drs. ​
Wilfred and​ Evan Shute. ​
In 1933 Drs. ​
Wilfred and​ Evan Shute were some of​ the​ first doctors to​ use large doses of​ vitamin E to​ treat heart disease. ​
at ​ that time,​ antioxidants and​ free radicals were rather obscure concepts in​ the​ chemistry of​ oxidation,​ far removed from issues of​ health and​ disease. ​
Also at ​ that time,​ using vitamins to​ treat serious diseases such as​ heart disease and​ diabetes was considered by the​ medical establishment as​ misguided at ​ best and​ outright fraud at ​ worst. ​

In 1985,​ Linus Pauling wrote the​ failure of​ the​ medical establishment during the​ last forty years to​ recognize the​ value of​ vitamin E in​ controlling heart disease is​ responsible for a​ tremendous amount of​ unnecessary suffering and​ for many early deaths. ​
The interesting story of​ the​ efforts to​ suppress the​ Shute discoveries about vitamin E illustrates the​ shocking bias of​ organized medicine against nutritional measures for achieving improved health. ​

Dr. ​
SzentGyörgyi. ​
Dr. ​
Györgyi became interested in​ a​ chemical agent,​ present in​ plant juices,​ which had the​ effect of​ delaying oxidation,​ such as​ the​ browning of​ a​ sliced apple exposed to​ the​ air. ​
He suggested that this agent,​ which was also present in​ cabbages and​ oranges,​ was the​ mysterious Vitamin. ​
By 1933,​ he had isolated the​ substance in​ kilogram lots and​ named it​ ascorbic acid which means the​ acid which prevents scurvy. ​
In 1937,​ he won the​ 1937 Nobel Prize for his discovery of​ vitamin C. ​
He was the​ first to​ predict the​ use of​ Vitamin C for cancer. ​

Irwin Stone,​ PhD Irwin Stone became interested in​ the​ antioxidant properties of​ ascorbic acid,​ then newly discovered,​ as​ a​ means of​ protecting food against deterioration. ​
He continued his study of​ vitamin C for the​ next 50 years,​ and​ in​ the​ 1950s he established that humans would benefit from ingesting much larger amounts of​ ascorbates than the​ medical and​ nutritional establishments considered adequate. ​

Dr. ​
Fredrick Klenner. ​
In the​ early 1950s,​ Dr. ​
Fredrick Klenner began his work with mega doses of​ vitamin C. ​
He used doses up to​ 100 grams per day orally or​ intravenously. ​
In clinical reports he recorded the​ excellent response he saw when it​ was given in​ large doses. ​
For example,​ polio patients given vitamin C suffered no residual defects from their polio. ​
a​ controlled study in​ England on​ 70 children,​ half given vitamin C and​ half given placebo,​ confirmed that none of​ the​ ascorbates treated cases developed any paralysis while up to​ 20 percent of​ the​ untreated group did. ​
This study was not published because the​ Salk Vaccine had just been developed and​ no one was interested in​ vitamins. ​
Dr. ​
Klenners work was ignored.
Dr. ​
Klenner was the​ first physician to​ emphasize that small amounts of​ ascorbates do not work. ​
He said,​ if ​ you want results,​ use adequate ascorbic acid. ​
as​ a​ result of​ seeing consistent cures of​ a​ great variety of​ viral and​ bacterial diseases with huge doses of​ vitamin C,​ he published over twenty medical reports. ​
Orthodox medicines rejection of​ his lifesaving work stands as​ a​ reminder to​ all medical mavericks practicing today. ​
Some physicians,​ Klenner wrote,​ would stand by and​ see their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because,​ in​ their finite minds,​ it​ exists only as​ a​ vitamin. ​

Dr. ​
William J. ​
McCormick. ​
Over 50 years ago,​ it​ was Toronto physician William J. ​
McCormick,​ M.D.,​ who pioneered the​ idea that poor collagen formation,​ due to​ vitamin C deficiency,​ was a​ principal cause of​ diverse conditions ranging from stretch marks to​ cardiovascular disease and​ cancer. ​
This theory would become the​ foundation for Linus Pauling and​ Ewan Camerons decision to​ employ large doses of​ vitamin C to​ fight cancer. ​

Over twenty years before Pauling,​ McCormick had already reviewed the​ nutritional causes of​ heart disease and​ noted that four out of​ five coronary cases in​ hospital show vitamin C deficiency. ​
McCormick also early proposed vitamin C deficiency as​ the​ essential cause of,​ and​ effective cure for,​ numerous communicable illnesses,​ becoming an early advocate of​ using vitamin C as​ an antiviral and​ an antibiotic. ​
Modern writers often pass by the​ fact that McCormick actually advocated vitamin C to​ prevent and​ cure the​ formation of​ some kidney stones as​ far back as​ 1946. ​

Linus Pauling,​ PhD it​ was twotime Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling who coined the​ term ortho molecular. ​
Ortho molecular medicine describes the​ practice of​ preventing and​ treating disease by providing the​ body with optimal amounts of​ substances which are natural to​ the​ body. ​
Pauling identified sicklecell anemia as​ the​ first molecular disease and​ subsequently laid the​ foundation for molecular biology,​ and​ then developed a​ theory that explained the​ molecular basis of​ vitamin therapy. ​
Irwin Stone first introduced Pauling to​ Vitamin C,​ recommending 3,​000mg a​ day,​ which was 50 times the​ RDA. ​
Pauling and​ his wife began taking this amount,​ the​ severe colds that he had suffered from several times a​ year all his life no longer occurred. ​
After a​ few years he increased his intake of​ vitamin C to​ 100 times,​ then 200 times,​ and​ then 300 times the​ RDA now 18,​000 mg per day. ​
Pauling lived to​ be 93.Professor Pauling,​ as​ always,​ is​ ahead of​ his time. ​
The latest research on​ vitamin C substantiates his twentyfive years of​ advocacy and​ investigation on​ the​ benefits of​ vitamin C.,​ said J. ​
Daniel Kanofsky,​ MD,​ MPH,​ Albert Einstein College of​ Medicine.10
Dr. ​
Josef Issels. ​
Because of​ his wellknown professional skills,​ his kindness,​ and​ relatively high rate of​ survivors,​ many cancer patients in​ the​ terminal stage came to​ consult German Dr. ​
Josef Issels. ​
In 1951,​ one wealthy and​ grateful patient funded his private clinic,​ where he continued his successful work until 1960,​ when he was arrested by the​ German Kriminalpolizei on​ the​ instigation of​ his medical opponents. ​
He had to​ close down his clinic for years,​ in​ spite of​ a​ report from an independent scientist who had concluded that,​ of​ 252 terminal cancer patients with histologically proved metastases,​ 42 had survived for at ​ least five years 17% with the​ Issels therapy. ​
For terminal patients,​ such a​ score is​ disproportionately high. ​

Issels believed that cancer was the​ end stage,​ the​ ultimate symptom,​ of​ a​ lifetime of​ immune system damage which had created an environment for the​ tumor to​ grow. ​
He argued that conventional therapy just looked at ​ the​ tumor without recognizing this longtime pre conditioning period. ​
Dr. ​
Issels saw the​ body as​ having great potential to​ heal itself. ​
Good nutrition and​ a​ clean environment were central to​ his therapy. ​

In the​ end,​ Issels was proven to​ be right. ​
From 1967 to​ 1970,​ Professor J. ​
Anderson of​ Kings College Hospital and​ member of​ the​ World Health Organization inspected Issels reopened clinic. ​
He confirmed the​ highly significant survival rate of​ Issels terminal cancer patients. ​
His legacy is​ continued by the​ work of​ his wife,​ Ilsa and​ his son Christian. ​

Dr. ​
William Kaufman. ​
Dr. ​
Kaufman was among the​ very first physicians to​ therapeutically employ mega doses of​ vitamin B3 niacin,​ or​ niacin amide. ​
He prescribed as​ much as​ 5,​000 mg of​ niacin amide daily,​ in​ many divided doses,​ to​ dramatically improve and​ restore range of​ joint motion in​ arthritic patients. ​
Kaufman said,​ I ​ noted that niacin amide alone or​ combined with other vitamins in​ a​ thousand patientyears of​ use has caused no adverse side effects. ​

Over 50 years ago,​ Kaufman showed remarkable foresight half a​ century into the​ future of​ ortho molecular medicine,​ describing how the​ lack of​ a​ just a​ single nutrient can cause diverse diseases,​ including what is​ now known as​ attentiondeficit hyper activity disorder. ​

Emanuel Cheraskin,​ MD,​ DMD. ​
Dr. ​
Cheraskin was among the​ very first to​ recognize and​ demonstrate that oral health indicates total body health. ​
Health is​ the​ fastest growing failing business in​ western civilization,​ he said. ​
Why is​ it​ so many of​ us are 40 going on​ 70,​ and​ so few 70 going on​ 40? the​ answer,​ he said,​ was our neglect of​ the​ paramount value of​ nutrition,​ an educational deficiency that Dr. ​
Cheraskin devoted a​ lifetime to​ eradicating. ​

Hugh Desaix Riordan,​ M.D. ​
Hugh Riordan was one of​ the​ most knowledgeable,​ both as​ a​ maverick par excellence and​ as​ an historian of​ mavericks. ​
Hugh was an ortho molecular fighter,​ who fought hard and​ consistently on​ behalf of​ ortho molecular concepts. ​
He was challenged legally when he wanted to​ treat his patients with high dose vitamins in​ the​ hospital. ​
He won. ​
He was the​ first to​ demonstrate how large doses of​ vitamin C are chemotherapeutic for cancer patients. ​
His main work had to​ do with the​ schizophrenic syndrome and​ with the​ treatment of​ cancer using nontoxic vitamin C chemotherapy. ​
Hugh was the​ leader in​ making available to​ cancer patients a​ treatment that is​ effective,​ safe,​ economical and​ very tolerable. ​

Abram Hoffer,​ M.D.,​ PhD Dr. ​
Abram Hoffer has spent the​ past five decades conducting research related to​ the​ practice of​ ortho molecular medicine,​ which emphasizes the​ use of​ nutrients in​ optimum doses for the​ treatment of​ a​ wide range of​ diseases. ​

In 1952,​ Dr. ​
Hoffer and​ his colleagues began developing a​ more effective treatment for schizophrenia that involved a​ biochemical hypothesis. ​
They tried two nutrients vitamin C and​ vitamin B3. ​
He found that we​ could halve the​ twoyear recovery rate of​ patients just by adding these vitamins to​ the​ program. ​
This was the​ first major systematic attempt to​ use large dosages of​ vitamins therapeutically. ​
In 1955 he also discovered that niacin lowered cholesterol levels. ​

These pioneers and​ others were first ridiculed,​ and​ were ignored by the​ medical establishment,​ but were eventually proven to​ be right. ​

In part three of​ the​ Power of​ Natural Alternative Medicine we​ will discuss why modern physicians are slow to​ accept and​ recommend natural alternatives to​ prescription ​Drug​s. ​
