Interestingly, I have been following the protocol on lymephotos dot com for about the past week...incl vit c @ appx 9,000 mg per day (plus similar amount of NaCl (!) but I'm not gonna say it's working for sure Yet. I'll continue to stay on it for a bit, but it's scary because of the high salt load. Lymephotos theory is logical, though, re: making the habitat inhospitable to the intruders, and I am NOT showing signs of water retention, bloating, etc. which supports their claims.
