I could not have said it better myself than you did Jim. I think it's nothing short of medical malpractice for the hospital staff not to IMMEDIATELY give IV Vit C while pondering the diagnosis- as Dr Frederick Klenner MD used to say.
In 1948-1949 Klenner cured 60 cases out of 60 of polio with IV C. In his long career he also cured measles, chicken pox,influenza, colds, viral pneumonia, snake bite, viral encephalitis,minor burns,carbon monoxide poisoning,infectious hepatitis..... it's all is his papers!
What a dreadful waste of yet another life.
If anyone would like to know Dr Robert Cathcart MD doses of oral Vit C to correct various maladies,INCLUDING INFLUENZA here it is:
PS: There is NO evidence that flu shots work. There has never been any double blind, placebo controlled trials & you're having foreign substances including aluminium,injected into yourself- and the drug companys CANNOT be sued if they kill you- what economic reason do they have to ensure safety. Why use them when we have vitamin C & vitamin D, both substances natural to the body. It's an absolute no-brainer.

@ T Since having also gone threw this with my family i think a few questions should be asked. First the reason this woman got the flu in the first place would be she was vitamin D deficient, her family can correct me on this.For 99% or more people who get flu,s or colds in winter this would be the cause. keeping your D3 levels the same in winter as summer theres no need for the flu jab, how ever each to there own.Second ,if the hospital checked her vitamin c levels as well as her vitamin d3 an gave her IV vitamin C in the required doses showing that they tryed everything to save her then i apologise to the doctors for jumping the gun. However if this was not done ,and since the Allan Smith case was so well known in the hospitals i ask why not. Allan Smith not only had to fight swineflu he was also had to battle hairy cell luekimia which was to be his death sentence, however dead he is not,thanks to the vitamin c. This lady was apparently in good health her recovery may have been even quicker than Allan Smith had IV vitamin c been part of her treatment. IV vitamin c is a registered drug (vitamin) so there is no excuse not to use it, also there is plenty of data that shows ICU patiants are extremely low or have no vitamin c in their system. This being an acute case of scurvy which the hospitals have a duty to check and correct if not then this is failing to provide the necessities of life and questions should be asked and answered.

All the best to the family at this difficult time.

Its amazing how the media grab these stories to scare everyone into supporting the billion dollar drug industry. Think about it for a moment, what are we now saying 'if you do not have the flu jab you might die'!! So what has changed? Why were healthy people not dropping in their thousands before we had any of these "Flu Jabs"? If that statement is now true then there can be only one explanation the Flu Jabs have created more strains of flu that are stronger and more deadly! So in fact it could be possible that by having the flu jabs we are making things worse. We are creating mutations of flu strains. At least the drug companies will be happy, their profits will soar. Emotions always make us say and do things without thinking or doing any research.

@Jim, were you this woman's doctor and did you examine and treat her?

This story of Cate McIlroy saddens me.
It shows that our Ministry of Health
are suppressing IV Vitamin C therapy
to those that desperately in need.
The McIlroy family have also been misled into thinking the 'flu vaccine is the silver bullet. One only needs to find out what ingredients are in a vaccine and you may quickly realise they aren't so good i.e. why would you put aluminium as an adjuvant when it is a neurotoxin?

This is a classic case of scurvy. Had this womans vitamin c levels been taken she would have had 0 vitamin c in her. Allan Smith the waikato farmer with swine flu was the same as this woman and if it wasnt for the IV vitamin c he wouldnt be alive today.Such a shame that this poor lady died when possible a vital vitamin for health could have saved her life.

The family are soo brave coming forward and sharing this to NZ and the world. Sincere heartfelt condolences. Now NZers know to take the flu seriously if anyone in the family gets seriously ill to get to the hospital and that's where people with non emergencies should not be clogging up the Hospitals A&E!.
