Healthy Living: Don’t Overlook Vitamin C for Pneumonia

vitamin CIt’s that time of year when colds and flu are going around and this year we also have Ebola and Enterovirus. For some people bronchitis and pneumonia are a yearly occurrence. That used to be the case for my husband, Alex. He told me when he was 16 or 17 he came down with pneumonia. It took him quite some time to fully recover. Every year after that for the next 17 or 18 years, he developed bronchitis at least once during the winter months. Well, after the first year of our marriage and seeing him develop bronchitis right on schedule, I was not going to put up with that on a yearly basis!

Besides improving the quality of our diet and adding nutritional supplements, I found making sure we always took enough vitamin C was important. I know that things like smoking, stress and environmental toxins can cause your body to burn through vitamin C even more quickly, so we take more than most people probably do. Some of us need even more of this seemingly common vitamin. For instance, because I have had a history of gum problems, I tend to need even more vitamin C. My body seems to crave it.

It was very exciting to watch the short video interview below with Dr. Andrew Saul recounting his recovery from pneumonia in just 3 hours. Often we look for the newest or most cutting edge product or supplement and we overlook the foundational, basic building blocks of good health.

Do you intentionally supplement with vitamin C and if so have you experienced any particular benefits?

  1. Ann,

    My liquid vitamin has a lot of C. Hubby drinks a lot of OJ this time of year.  Neither of us have been sick in years.  Praise God! 

    Have a Victorious Day!  Marianne
