The webinar will discuss increased oxidative stress, especially intracellularly, as the final common denominator in the etiology and progression of all chronic diseases. The role of toxins as pro-oxidants and the counteracting functions of antioxidants such as vitamin C will be discussed. It will be pointed out that all diseases rapidly consume whatever stores/amounts of vitamin C are present in the body because of their common etiology of increased oxidative stress. As such, a solid case will be made for at least clinically viewing all diseases as variable degrees of focal, and sometimes generalized, scurvy to a greater or lesser extent.
The nuances of vitamin C dosing and administration will be discussed, either alone or in conjunction with a more involved clinical protocol. Guidelines on minimal general supplementation will also be presented.
- Evaluate the role of increased oxidative stress in all disease processes.
- Identify the essential role of vitamin C and other antioxidants in regaining or maintaining optimal health.
- Identify some of the best ways to reach the body's optimal redox (reduction/oxidation) balance.
Dr. Levy is a board-certified cardiologist and a bar-certified attorney. After practicing adult cardiology for 15 years, he began to research the enormous toxicity associated with much dental work and the pronounced ability of properly administered vitamin C to neutralize this toxicity. He has now written eleven books, with several addressing the wide-ranging properties of vitamin C in neutralizing all toxins and resolving most infections, as well as its vital role in the effective treatment of heart disease and cancer. Others address the essential roles of dental toxicity and nutrition in sickness and health.
