John has been a member of our Facebook group, Vitamin C for Optimal Health since December 2014. In the Autumn of 2000 John was running and felt a pain in his chest. At the hospital doctors discovered that John's arteries were clogged. In order to resolve this John had five bypass surgeries on his arteries. For those that do not know what a bypass is, it's an invasive surgery that restores blood flow to the heart by changing the flow of the blood around the blocked artery. He was lucky to have discovered his clogged arteries before experiencing an infarction. John was confused because he thought he was healthy, never smoking and being a vegetarian. After John's recovery in January 2001 he began doing the one thing that we all need to do, researching ways to heal his body. John discovered Linus Pauling, Dr. Frederick Klenner, Dr. Rath, and Dr. Robert Cathcart. These doctors offer a plethora of valuable information to reverse disease and heal the body. You can find them free on the Internet. Please see our resources section for information and easy access. In 2001 after reading some information from these doctors John began taking 4 grams of Vitamin C per day. At this time John did not know that 4 grams was a minimal amount. Still he experiences no complaints after 14 years even at just 4 grams per day. At the end of 2014 John discovered the Vitamin C for Optimal health group on Facebook. The group offered John allot of confidence and he began taking 2 tablets every 2 hours totalling 18 grams of Vitamin C per day, as recommended by David Smith. John reaches bowel tolerance in the morning with 10 grams using sodium ascorbate. John feels much better and has noticed his teeth are stronger and his chronic winter cough is no longer bothersome. John has confidence that his blood vessels are staying healthy because the corrosion at the inside of his blood vessels is being prevented by adequate Vitamin C.
John you are a very important part of our group and your story will move mountains. There are no words to express the gratitude I have for you sharing the powers of Vitamin C. Keep up the great work!
