|Dr. F.R. Klenner's Protocol for
Editor: Since the publication of my article "Multiple Sclerosis
Treated with Injectable Vitamin B1 and Liver Extract" in the TLfDP
in the Feb/March 2000 issue, I have received hundreds of calls from
doctors and patients wanting more information on this safe,
effective, and inexpensive treatment which reverses and cures
Dr. F.R. Klenner's medical paper was published in the June and
July 2000 edition of the TLfDP. Dr. H.T.R. Mount's medical paper on
the successful treatment of MS with vitamin B1 and liver extract was
also published in the Feb/March 2000 issue of the TLfDP. It is
interesting to note these two MDs were treating MS in the 1940s and
'50s with the same two essential ingredients — injectable B1 and
liver extract, yet they were unaware of each other. Dr. Klenner in
Reidsville, North Carolina and Dr. Mount in Ottawa, Ontario. Dr.
Mount felt paralysis was a contraindication to his type of therapy,
whereas Dr. Klenner was treating MS patients with paralysis
intensively and successfully with vitamins A, C, E and all of the B
vitamins and other metabolites in addition to the vitamin B1 and
liver extract injections.
As many readers know, we had serious problems from 1998 on as the
FDA Pharmaceutical monolith attempted to stop this treatment by
refusing to allow the release of vitamin injectables and liver
extract from the large labs producing them, which were under FDA
control. It was a desperate situation for us and we survived by
importing them from Mexico where these injectables are available
without a prescription. Compounding pharmacies in the US began to
produce the vitamin B1 injectables in 2000. They were able to do
this because compounding pharmacies are under State control. The FDA
went to court in January 2001 in New York and attempted to gain
control of compounding pharmacies and they were denied that right.
These pharmacies then began to produce Liver Extract also and we
were assured of a reliable source of supply.
There are currently two pharmacies producing B1, 200mg per ml.
and liver extract with two more coming on line, one in Canada and
one in the US. With increasing numbers of patients becoming aware of
this treatment, the demand will increase.
Dr. Klenner believed MS to have a viral cause. With a degree in
Biochemistry he was able to understand what was happening in MS. The
virus damaged the cells of the central nervous system rendering them
incapable of maintaining homeostasis or normal metabolism by
retaining adequate B1 within the cells, resulting in a deterioration
of the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve and eventual paralysis.
By raising the level of B1 in the body with a daily injection, a
level could be maintained allowing normal metabolism to be
continued, resulting in myelin sheath regeneration and recovery. In
reality, MS is a deficiency disease caused by a viral inflammation
of the central nervous system which can be reversed with adequate B1
and liver extract injections. Recovery can be enhanced with the
addition of vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex and other metabolites in
addition to a healthful diet and lifestyle.
I have followed this protocol for over 25 years. Following two
severe attacks of MS in 1973 I could walk only a short distance and
was forced to discontinue working — my doctors said I would be in a
wheelchair soon. After beginning treatment with Dr. Klenner I was
able to return to work within 6 months — but it was two years before
I became symptom-free. I have enjoyed excellent health since.
The protocol of Dr. Klenner's I have followed consists of: (1) a
daily intramuscular injection of vitamin B1 of 300 to 400 mg. The
correct dosage can be determined by the level of fatigue the patient
experiences. Some patients require 300 to 400 mg daily to experience
relief of fatigue symptoms. The B1 is available in a strength of
200mg per ml. So a 200 mg injection would be 1cc. Twice weekly 1cc
of liver extract is added to the B1 injection so extra injections
aren't needed. The B1 injectable comes in a 30cc bottle and lasts
for two to four weeks. The liver extract comes in a 10cc vial and
lasts 5 weeks. The syringe is a 25 gauge by five-eighths inch 3cc
Note: B1 is not well absorbed in oral form — the daily injection
is required for life for successful treatment and recovery.
Oral Vitamin Regimen 1. 5 grams daily in divided doses of Calcium
Ascorbate (buffered Vitamin C) which is available in 500mg tablets.
This boosts the immune system and eliminates or shortens recovery
time from colds and flu. 2. Vitamin E 400 to 1000 IU daily 3. B-100
tablet. This tablet contains 100mg of all of the B vitamins. 4. B12
— One tablet (sublingual — dissolved under the tongue) daily. One to
2mg strength. 5. Niacin. Once or twice weekly, 100 to 300mg before
breakfast. This is a vasodilator and opens the blood vessels
allowing the nutrients to rebuild the myelin sheath damaged by MS.
This will produce a flush and reddening of the skin for about 30
minutes, which most patients say they enjoy. It is advisable to lie
down and cover up for the period of the flush.
Diet A high protein diet is required to rebuild the myelin
sheath. Examples: Breakfast — 1 or 2 eggs poached, with fruit and
cereal. Lunch — fish and vegetables (steamed) and fruit. Supper —
chicken or beef with vegetables and fruit. Soy, cheese and dairy
products are a good source of protein if well tolerated.
One 500mg digestive enzyme tablet taken with each meal can often
improve digestion and absorption.
Injectables are presently available at two compounding pharmacies
with a prescription and are shipped to Canada and all parts of the
US: Optioncare Pharmacy, Aurora, Illinois — 630-859-0333 or
800-679-4667; College Pharmacy, Colorado Springs, Colorado —
800-888-9358. Prices at last quote: Thiamine 200mg per ml. 30cc
$15.00; Liver Extract 10cc $25.00.
