The medical profession does not put much value on any specific individual's personal experience with some treatment as scientific.  While it is true that controlled studies remove individual anomalies and give a more reliable view of the normal or general, it is ironic that anecdotal evidence is scoffed at while treating individuals is what medicine is all about!

In any case, our objective for Cforyourself is to provide information (the rest of the site) and a forum for individuals to share their experiences with specific diseases and Vitamin C.  Your participation is encouraged.  Please be assured that your identity will be kept as confidential as you wish. To share your experiences please click the "Go To Form" button below or just send us an e-mail from any of the e-mail links at the bottom of every page

Jan has been a participant in the Cforyourself Sinusitis study. As it turns out she has suffered from debilitating Rheumatoid arthritis. The high-dose vitamin C she started taking during the sinusitis study has provided dramatic relief for her arthritis. Please read her account on the Sinusitis Study Results page.

I am 78 years old and have been taking 2000mg of vitamin C per day for about a year.  A little over a month ago, I started taking 1500mg of Glucosamine and 1200mg of Chondroitin in three divided doses every day.  You suggested this to alleviate the pain of arthritis which was particularly bad in my knees.  The improvement is so great that I am about to drop the dosage to two per day.  How can I thank you enough for the relief, not in the knees alone, but also in my fingers, wrists and ankles?  I'll let you know how I make out at this maintenance level.
