I campaign against quack treatments and I have been exposing charlatans that give unproven and dangerous treatments to children for over five years now.
I have given evidence in Court regarding the toxic bleach product MMS.
I have recently found yet another Facebook group that is experimenting on babies and children.
This closed group has over 48,000 members.
It is one of the biggest groups I’ve seen on Facebook, it is called ‘Vitamin C & Orthomolecular Medicine For Optimal Health’
This group is giving medical advice to its members, yet none of the admins are doctors or health professionals.
See Admins in screenshot below.
Some admins are also selling products to their members.
Katie Gironda runs Revitalize Wellness, see below.
Katie is one of the founding members of this Facebook group, she sells products and dishes out medical advice even though she is not a doctor or a health professional.
By Katies own admission, she says this Facebook group is run by her own business, see in screenshot below.
See some of katies products in screenshots below.
Katie displays dangerous claims regarding Vitamin C preventing and even curing Cancer, see below.
Katie has videos on her Facebook page which are advising pregnant Mothers to take dangerously high does of vitamin C and she makes bogus claims about vitamin C making labour shorter and less painful.
Listen to Katie spew misinformation here.
Pregnant women and nursing Mothers should not take such high doses of vitamin C as it can put them and their babies health at risk.
Katies vitamin C chart displays dangerously high doses of vitamin C, see below.
Compare Katies chart to the recommended safe vitamin C doses issued by the department of health in table above, Katies doses are not safe, especially for babies, children and nursing Mothers.
Katie also tells pregnant women to take massive doses of vitamin C up to 5000 mgs/5 grams or more, the safe pregnancy daily allowance is 85 mgs.
Many pregnant women and Mothers of newborn babies are taking these high doses even when their midwives advise them not to, see some screenshots from Katies Facebook group below.
These Mothers call their babies vitamin C babies.
They are giving their babies and children dangerously high doses of vitamin C and vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Again these doses are not recommended, not safe and come with unpleasant and sometimes serious side effects.
Please see again the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for babies and children in screenshot below.
Side effects of such high doses of vitamin C include vomiting, painful stomach cramps, diarrhoea and more.
High levels of vitamin C have also been linked to kidney stones, see below.
High doses of vitamin C can interact with prescribed medications, such as heart medications and Cancer medications, see below.
Linus Pauling is one of the quacks noted for spreading misinformation about vitamin C, read about him here.
The people in this group believe that Vitamin C in very high doses can CURE all ills. Their babies and children are being fed dangerously high does of AA (Ascorbic Acid) and SA (Sodium Ascorbate ), they also use Lipo C.
These parents are also giving their children dangerously high doses of Niacin (vitamin B3)
There are many posts in this Facebook group offering protocols to ‘treat’ Autism.
Niacin in high doses is strongly recommended for Autistic children.
This Facebook group is advocating dangerous levels of Niacin/B3 to children and breast feeding Mothers, see in screenshots below.
Katie who is not a doctor encourages high doses of Niacin for a child who is suffering from Cancer, see below.
There is no scientifically proven benefits to ingesting such high doses of vitamin C and vitamin B3.
In fact it can cause serious side effects which can harm ones health.
These children are being dosed with dangerously high doses of vitamin C and vitamin B3 when they are well, however if they get sick Katie and her admins tell parents to up the dose and encourages them to administer reckless amounts of these vitamins, sometimes every 15 minutes whilst their children are sick.
The other barbaric and torturous protocol used is the ‘vitamin C flush’
This is carried out to estimate your BT (Bowel Tolerance), meaning how much vitamin C can you ingest until your bowel explodes!
It is bad enough adults doing this but to see children being forced to suffer stomach pains, nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting which is what happens with a vitamin C flush, it is blatant endangerment.
They feed their children high doses of vitamin C until their children suffer watery diarrhoea, diarrhoea is DANGEROUS and can quickly lead to dehydration.
Parents are doing this for no biological reason whatsoever.
See screenshot taken from this Facebook group discussing the child vitamin C flush below.
As mentioned above side effects of vitamin C overdose are dangerous for babies and children, diarrhoea is not the only nasty side effect, rashes are common in this group, please see some upsetting images/posts taken from this Facebook group below.
Even adults are having serious reactions to these dangerous quack protocols, see below.
Please see some more crazy posts from this group in screenshots below.
MMS BLEACH is also being promoted, see below.
The other quack treatment they endorse is BORAX, parents are ingesting a laundry detergent and also administering this to their children, see posts below.
Teachers are even feeding this DETERGENT to children in school as seen in screenshot above.
Most parents in this group are anti-vaccine and do not want to give their children safe and proven medications.
Many children are being deprived from receiving proper care and are instead being dosed with unproven and dangerous treatments.
There are people from all over the world in this group including quite a sizeable amount from Ireland where I live.
Most parents buy these products online.
Myself and others are repeatedly reporting groups like this to Facebook but Facebook do nothing.
In fact Facebook do not have a category for reporting such quackery, this makes it even harder for us to report such groups.
Facebook are offering platforms to quacks and anti-vaxxers and are allowing children to be experimented on with dangerous, unproven and unregulated products.
It is one thing adults experimenting on themselves but to see tiny babies and children being treated this way is unforgivable and disturbing.
Please report this group and alert all relevant authorities in your area, wherever that may be.
