Here’s an article with what sounds like a very good piece of information to have about using Vitamin C to off-set/neutralize the toxins in vaccines. With all the new, “next best thing” supplements and superfoods coming out these days, good ole C sometimes gets forgotten about, but in my mind it is still one of the best things ever for dealing with any number of health-related issues (read my post on the wonders of C). After reading Dr. Levy’s article, it made me think that anytime I’m in a situation where toxins are involved I should definitely not forget to bring on the C!

(NaturalHealth365) Few topics are as deeply embroiled in controversy with as diametrically opposed points of view as the extensive use of vaccinations in babies, children, and adults. The purpose of this brief article is not to discuss whether vaccinations are a good thing or not.
But, if you feel a vaccination is necessary (or unavoidable), you can effectively lower the risk factors for vaccine-related injuries. In fact, vitamin C is an ideal agent for this purpose.
Vaccinations present a toxic challenge to any individual being vaccinated.
All of the negative effects of any given vaccination are mediated by the infliction of increased oxidative stress on the most susceptible areas of the body. In babies, the brain and nervous system is especially susceptible to any new toxin, and when this new toxin-induced oxidative stress is substantial and not promptly neutralized, any of a number of neurological impairments, including autism, can result.
Even today, many vaccines still contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative capable of inflicting substantial harm.
Vitamin C is the optimal nonspecific antidote for all toxins and all oxidative stress. There are no known toxins that vitamin C cannot neutralize, and very many toxins have been examined in this capacity.
The reason for this is that all toxins inflict their toxic effects by increasing oxidative stress to pathological levels in one or more areas of the body. This means that important biomolecules get oxidized and lose their function.
Vitamin C can both neutralize the toxin directly and also repair the oxidative damage if the toxin cannot be neutralized first.
Vitamin C augments the antibody response of the body to the vaccination.
At the same time the vitamin C is blocking or neutralizing the pro-oxidative side effects of the vaccination, it is also helping the vaccine optimize whatever antibody response might possibly be destined to result. If even the staunchest of vaccine advocates was fully aware of what vitamin C can do to neutralize toxicity while enhancing immune response, vitamin C would be a routine part of all vaccination protocols.
A practical approach to combining vitamin C with vaccinations:
First, and foremost, anyone getting vaccinated or getting a child or baby vaccinated should make the treating doc fully aware of what is being done. If your doc gets visibly upset at hearing what you want to do without fully explaining to you why you should not do it, find another doc.
For optimal antibody support and toxin neutralization, it would be good to dose the vitamin C for three to five days before the shot(s) and to continue the vitamin C for at least two to three days afterwards.
When dealing with infants and very young children, a 1,000 mg dose of liposome-encapsulated vitamin C mixed into something like yogurt can work very well. If this form of vitamin C is not available, sodium ascorbate powder will work quite well.
Infants under 10 pounds can take about 500 mg in fruit juice, and babies between 10 and 20 pounds can take from 500 to 1,000 mg. As a very rough guide, children can take 1,000 mg daily per year of life, up to about age five.
If loose bowels ensue, the dose can be cut back, and greater effort should be made to acquire a quality liposome-encapsulated preparation of vitamin C. A similar approach applies to older individuals before something like the flu shot.

PERSONAL NOTE: You can buy the *liposome-encapsulated vitamin C on-line at Natural Healthy Concepts and probably several other places. It’s expensive, but may be worth it, especially in certain situations as with vaccines or other known toxins. I read a story about this form of C being used on a *man (in Australia, I think) who the doctors had given up on, but his children demanded he be treated with mega-doses of C and he had a complete recovery, although I can’t remember the particular health issue(s) involved. I’ve also read an article somewhere on the internet about *how to make your own lipo C at home. Another option might be using an ascorbic acid flush, which I mention in my health e-book. I’ll make a point to post that info in the next couple of days.
*3/1/14 Update: Read these Self-help Health posts for more on lipo C, how to make your own, a link to a video about the man in Australia who “came back from the dead” using lipo C, and using C to fight cancer:
