It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

Breaking News: Successful COVID-19 Hospital Therapy



Breaking News: COVID-19 patients getting vitamin C therapy in N.Y. hospitals

March 25, 2020

(NaturalHealth365) We are now rapidly approaching half a million confirmed cases of COVID-19, globally. Doctors and health experts – around the world – are scrambling to find effective treatments that will help people suffering from the respiratory disease caused by the COVID-19 infection. Diving headfirst into a flurry of clinical trials and experimental drugs are medical teams in New York, one of the hardest hit areas in the U.S.

One “therapy” out of New York City that doesn’t seem to be getting quite as much press coverage as it should – despite actually having years of research to back up its use – is higher than normal amounts of vitamin C. Could something as simple as a nutrient be a potentially successful remedy in the fight against such an unknown (life-threatening) viral infection?
New York doctors express optimism over a vitamin therapy given to COVID-19 patients

Earlier reports out of China indicate that high amounts of vitamin C – delivered intravenously – have been effective in managing COVID-19 cases. Critical care doctors from New York have taken note, and in some places are reportedly administering 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C – three to four times per day – to confirmed COVID-19 patients.

Healthcare providers reportedly have seen significant improvement in patients taking this vitamin C therapy compared to other patients who haven’t received high amounts of this potent antiviral and antioxidant nutrient.

How much vitamin C is enough? Well, let’s say this: it’s way more than the “recommended dietary allowance” of 75 to 90 mg for adult women and men, respectively. Basically, the report suggests that doctors are giving 1,500 mg of vitamin C – 4 times per day.

And, according to many vitamin C experts, the reason for any “vitamin C success” is due to its frequency of administration – throughout the day. To overcome any intense bacterial or viral infection, it’s very important that critically ill patients receive consistent amounts of this lifesaving vitamin, on a regular basis until symptoms are gone.

Doctors believe the “much higher-than-normal” amounts being administered are helping people who are requiring intensive care for coronavirus. Keep in mind, levels of vitamin C tend to drop dramatically if and when a person gets sick. Sepsis is a perfect example of the need for more vitamin C, when sick.

The reason is that sepsis launches a strong inflammatory response – which can affect nutrient levels, so aggressively replacing the levels may prove to be beneficial for helping the body fight off an infection.
Natural healthcare strategies to help you avoid the need for toxic “treatments”

For those curious about how to get vitamin C in your diet … you can aim to boost your own natural supplies by adding more vitamin-C rich food like, broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers, and citrus fruit. If you want to boost your vitamin C levels via supplementation … we suggest you talk to your integrative healthcare provider about what’s best for you.

If you’d like to show your physician what another doctor thinks about vitamin C … check out this special report (with video) about Dr. Cheng and his amazing experience with treating COVID-19 patients in China.

Of course, when it comes to food … be sure to choose organic varieties to avoid unwanted chemicals in your diet that stress out your immune system.

Meanwhile, in a nearly unprecedented move, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already given the “green light” for New York doctors to begin clinical trials with various drugs for COVID-19 treatment. As of the writing of this article, no drugs has been approved by the FDA for COVID-19.

But, medical providers are experimenting with the off-label use of drugs including hydroxycloroquine and azithromycin. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of other treatments, natural or otherwise, come out of this pandemic response.

Stay tuned, as we at NaturalHealth365 continue to monitor coronavirus developments, as they unfold.
