Patient Profile: Fighting Fatigue with Intravenous Vitamin C
by Chris Brannon, RN
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a common human virus in the herpes family of viruses, including those that cause cold sores and chicken pox. EBV causes infectious mononucleosis. Most people will become infected with EBV in their lifetime, but many don’t realize it because they never feel sick. Once the body is infected, however, the virus remains forever.
In the early 1980’s, a young woman came to our clinic looking for relief from 15 months of extreme fatigue. At that time she had been recently diagnosed with Epstein-Barr virus and mononucleosis.
With the knowledge that EBV persists for the rest of the individual’s life, this co-learner knew that something had to be available to help the fatigue. Our doctor prescribed a treatment course of 25gm infusions of intravenous vitamin C (IVC). After her very first infusion, she immediately knew the solution was found. She came back for a second IV vitamin C infusion and had the same response. The energy that had been lacking from the lasting viral infections was being restored.
With a successful treatment behind her, this patient continued seeing her doctor here at the Clinic to maintain her health. Thirty years later, she continues to receive infusions for a better quality of life. Looking back she is happy that these past years were not lost in a self-limiting disease. With the help of IV vitamin C, she was able to have a very successful and joyful life.
