Yesterday, we talked about all the fear behind whooping cough with facts. You can find that here: Whooping Cough: Why Is Everyone So Scared? Part 1. There are so many conflicting views being thrown at parents when it comes to whooping cough. To a point it can seem overwhelming. However, it is important that you take the time to follow the facts and come to your own educated conclusion of what is best for your family.
What”s A Parent To Do?
Educate yourself! Most doctors and parents fear whooping cough because they have never been trained to properly treat it. The standard treatment is antibiotics which are very ineffective and can cause numerous long term problems. My best advice for doctors and parents…learn to treat whooping cough using Vitamin C. Vitamin C works by energizing the bodies white blood cells, neutralizing the toxins produced by the whooping cough bacteria and thinning out the mucus. Vitamin C doesn”t shorten the course of the infection & the body will still need to fight off the bacteria but casino online the symptoms will be FAR less severe. I recommend either non-GMO sodium ascorbate dosed at 300-375 mg/kg (1 kg = 2.2 lbs) or Lipospheric vitamin C. Lipospheric vitamin C (aka Liposomal vitamin C) is much more potent and bioavailable than ordinary oral or even IV vitamin C so only use 1/3 the amount (100-125 mg/kg). If you get any diarrhea, it indicates that your body is saturated and you should decrease the dosage. It is important to use vitamin C for the entire course of illness because stopping too soon can result in a rebound of symptoms. Dr. Suzanne Humphries, MD has written an excellent in-depth article on the treatment of whooping cough using vitamin C. I encourage parents and physicians to take the time to review it here. By arming yourself with the facts, you can fend off the fear tactics that come your way. Knowledge is power!
