The Key Is in the Dose

When using nutritional medicines like magnesium chloride, iodine, sodium bicarbonate, vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid, the dose determines the effect. In conventional allopathic medicine they say the dose makes the poison but in the Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol we are not using poisons. In Natural Allopathic Medicine we often take doses to exceedingly high levels without the side effects found in pharmaceuticals that are an ever-present danger even at very low doses.

In allopathic medicine everything, even water and vitamin C are placed on a scale of toxicity with everything being defined as poisonous. And though it’s true that one can drown in water, a large person can safely drink a gallon of it without ill affect and one can put pounds of magnesium chloride in one’s bath and take very high doses of iodine safely for infectious disorders without the serious and dangerous downside of antibiotics. Adverse effects are very rare, and are usually attributed to lack of care or knowledge on the part of the person or prescriber.

It is certainly possible to cure incurable diseases through the use of the right doses of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids (among other things). The dose determines the effect! Low doses do not get clinical results! Through the years the mistake I have seen people making over and over is under-dosing.

The key to the entire protocol is getting the doses high enough. With all protocol items it is best to start out low and get used to each substance and then slowly bring the doses up. What it says on the bottle is a good guide for beginning doses only. The Nascent iodine is a good example. On the bottle it says 1 to 3 drops three times a day. Ten drops a day is only 4 mg. I used to give my three-year-old (she is now seven) 15 drops at each application instead of antibiotics and without vaccines she rarely gets sick.

The Rejuvenate superfood spirulina and chlorella formulas are another case in point. On the jar of Rejuvenate it says a serving size is two scoops. That in fact can be repeated two, three and even four times a day. I know of two men who saved themselves with ultra-high doses of spirulina and/or Rejuvenate. One ran his car at high speed under a truck, which flattened his car and badly broke his back. The other had his leg run over by a tractor! I have been promoting spirulina since it first hit the marketplace 35 years ago and through the years have seen what its nutritional power can do.

When taking something the first time, you need to start with a minimum dose, like putting your toes in the water to check the temperature first. Powders or tonics can be mixed in varying concentrations by using more or less water. In emergency situations when you cannot afford the luxury of driving up the doses slowly, it is best to work with a health professional.

Allopathic medicine demonstrates egotism and/or ignorance with its refusal to consider nutrition as something important when addressing disease, and people pay a huge price in terms of their health because of this. When it comes to emotions and stress as causative factors of disease, allopathic doctors do acknowledge this and they love to medicate people with pharmaceutical anti-depressants. “Just pop a pill and you’ll be fine” is their mantra.

Natural Allopathic Medicine shares many traits with orthomolecular medicine, which is a form of complementary and alternative medicine that seeks to maintain health and prevent or treat diseases by optimizing nutritional intake and/or prescribing supplements; it focuses on using the right nutritional molecules in the right amounts for the individual. There is no question that vitamins and minerals do prevent and treat serious diseases, including cancer and heart disease, when the nutrients are supplied in sufficiently high doses. Cardiologist Dr. Thomas Levy said, “The three most important considerations in effective vitamin C therapy are dose, dose, and dose. If you don’t take enough, you won’t get the desired effects.

Effective doses are high doses, often hundreds of times more than the U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Daily Reference Intake (DRI). Dr. Abram Hoffer said, “Drs. Wilfrid Shute and Evan Shute recommended doses from 400 to 8,000 IU of vitamin E daily. The usual dose range was 800 to 1600 IU but they report that they had given 8,000 IU without seeing any toxicity.” The Shutes successfully treated over 35,000 patients with vitamin E.[1]

Though you might choose to start ten medicinals, you do not want to start all ten on the same day. When using these medicines you use the reactions and feelings of your body to navigate upwards toward higher doses. Our body knows the difference between helpful medicinals and drugs and ones that are doing it harm. I always tell people to feel their way up. If you take a dose of something and there is no reaction then it is safe to keep increasing the dose. I have had people at death’s door recover much in terms of feelings and an unexpected return of strength taking the medicinals in this protocol. The magnesium oil is very strong in this regard.

One can expect to start feeling something positive within days. Sometimes, depending on the medical situation, relief is felt within hours or in the case of nebulization even in minutes. Combining methods of administration is the best way of maximizing intake of medicinals but must be done under close supervision to avoid over-usage. One can use IVs, take medicinal baths, intake orally, use enemas, nebulize and apply transdermally (topically) directly on the skin depending on which item you are using and what you are treating and its severity.

There are many routes of administration for many of my protocol items, but care must be taken to pay attention to your own body and adjust according to how you feel and to consider using multiple routes of administration only under good medical supervision.

The toxicity of a substance is also affected by a number of other factors including the innate chemical activity, the dose and dose-time relationship, exposure route, species, sex and age. Also the ability of a substance to be absorbed, distributed, metabolized and finally excreted from the body affects the toxicity. The toxicity may be affected positively or negatively by the presence of other substances, e.g. alcohol.[2]
