What can Vitamin C do for Your Nerves?

Sorbitol (a form of sugar) travels to certain parts of the body where it builds up. These parts of the body are:

– the lens of the eye where it forms a white milky film called cataracts and

– the sciatic nerve (the big nerve that runs down your leg) where it can cause nerve damage (nerve pain).

Evidence indicates that taking 2,000 mg a day of vitamin C may reduce the production of sorbitol and help strip sorbitol out of the body.

Most of the vitamin C sold in the US is ascorbic acid by itself, a whole food or food based Vitamin C is what is needed.

Antibiotics – natural or not?

How did “antibiotics” so freely dispensed come about?

Well, Alexander Fleming, Scottish physician, biologist, pharmacologist and botanist returned from holiday on September 3, 1928, he looked at his petri dishes containing colonies of Staphylococcus, bacteria that cause boils, sore throats and abscesses  He found something unusual on one dish. It was dotted with colonies, save for one area where some mold was growing. The zone immediately around the mold (later identified as a rare strain of Penicillium notatum) was clear, the mold had secreted something that inhibited bacterial growth.  He found it was capable of killing a wide range of harmful bacteria.  And thus, Penicillan was created.  It was not till 1941 that it was developed enough to be used on a human.

It is now 76 years later, do we use anything other than mold, which is a type of fungus actually, and ….. well, the basis of the “modern” day antibiotics is still mold.

Now, even the CDC is telling people to look for fungus when the body is not getting well through standard medical treatment.

So, do you take these chemical antibiotics/mold or do you find something natural.  There is a host of things you could be taking.

See: What is an Antibiotic with a list of natural antibiotics.

What is McVitamins.com

Hi, my name is Chris. Let me tell you about this website.

I was concerned with the amount of degenerative diseases and other illnesses that occur due to nutritional deficiencies caused by faulty diet, and toxins in the environment such as drugs. Thus www.mcvitamins.com was created in 1999. 

Education is the best tool to getting healthy and maintaining that health. Understanding how the body works, what it needs to survive well and what to do naturally when it gets sick is valuable.

Learning these things is sometimes difficult due to the way that a lot of scientific papers and journals are written. They have their own language and unless you understand that language you have difficulty learning, if you can understand it at all.

Thus, I strive to write easily understood articles about health.

I also find that people would like to take natural remedies and not rely on drugs, but don’t know how to do this or what to do. Thus, the site also educates on what natural remedies to take.

I knew remedies that worked when the website was started and what to take to keep healthy. But, I then started researching different products.

As an example, in 2006, I found a workable remedy for nerve damage (neuropathy). I was particularly interested in this problem as people are given strong drugs (pain killers, anti-depressants and anticonvulsant) none of which are healthy as they cause nutritional deficiencies and are not all that workable. It only attempts to cover up the symptoms and does nothing to build health.

This product was the first on the market (2004) and for 11 years I’ve seen so many people relieved by giving the body what it needs to build healthy nerves. This product has since been followed by copycats and other opinions on what to do for this problem. However, I still promote this same product because this one works and it follows the science of what is needed by the nerves to be healthy.

This is only one example. I disagree with taking drugs as it only manages disease but doesn’t build health. I believe that if you build health, disease tends to fade away.

Thus, McVitamins.com continually researches information and nutritional solutions to help the individual to build health. 

McVitamins.com now has suggested products that can be ordered through this site, and links to other sites where you can order. 

Recommended products not only fit the criteria of handling the deficiencies the nutritional supplements were meant to handle, but has been researched and found to produce good results.

We do want to hear from you.  We’re interested in what you have to say?  What you like about our site, or what you don’t like. What other topics would interest you, or anything at all. We’d also like to hear any of your successes.

Sensory Neuropathy – Sensory Nerves Damaged

There are three types of nerves – sensory nerves, motor nerves and autonomic nerves.

Nerves carry information to and from the brain. It is the communication system of the body. The brain sends out commands to the body via the nervous system. The brain gets information from the body via the nervous system.

Every nerve in your peripheral system has a specific function, so the symptoms will depend on the type of nerves affected.

Nerves are classified into:

Sensory nerves that receive sensation, such as temperature, pain, vibration or touch, from the skin

Motor nerves that control muscle movement

Autonomic nerves that control functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, digestion and bladder
