One must experience it to believe it.
In my own experience, the best painkiller is vitamin C (sodium ascorbate, a non-acidic form of vitamin C).
In the late 1990s I visited Professor Erik Enby in Stockholm. He was known for conducting live blood tests. Within minutes he took a drop of my blood and put it under his microscope. On the screen we could see blood corpuscles bunching and moving sluggishly. He said, this is very bad, the corpuscles are bunching. (I was jetlagged) I said, “OK, I will now take my vitamin c”,which I did (a full, heaped teaspoon of vitamin C powder in little water). He took another drop of my blood two minutes later. The blood looked much better. Another drop of my blood 5 minutes later and the blood was flowy, no bunching of corpuscles. He said,”Have I not seen it I would never have believed it.”
I have been taking vitamin c every day since 1985,when I had my last tonsillitis and decided to stop taking antibiotics. I haven’t had tonsillitis since.
Whenever I have a blood test, I am always asked, are you on a blood thinner?
When I or my friends had a headache or toothache, the pain subsided as we were drinking a teaspoonful of vitamin c, dissolved in little water.
A four months-old baby with a reaction to the second DPT+polio vaccine, moaning in pain, stopped moaning within seconds of swallowing sodium ascorbate, dissolved in a little bit of water (administered PO by his mother via an eye dropper), fell deeply in sleep and with a continued administration of vitamin c for the rest of the night recovered completely without any residual damage.
The added benefit of vitamin c is that it is also healing and non toxic, unlike the chemical painkillers.
Try it on yourselves.
