I'm a physician, clinically practice western medicine, but taking care of my fiance with severe MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) using alternative medicine. I've recently started performing IV vitamin C and encountered Cathcart's protocol and saw his video and read his instructions. But I still have several questions regarding this. Is there an easier way than using sterile glass bottles which you would have to sterilize with an ?autoclave to make the stock solution?
I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter. Would it be possible that you call me? Or is there anyone you can refer me to who's currently using Cathcart's protocol.

The method described in his lecture/paper is the one used by Cathcart's nurses to produce a stock solution that could be stored in a refrigerator, and extracted as need to make IVs.
As Cathcart stated in the lecture, and also writes the first step is to sterilize the bottle.
Sterilize a 500 cc IV bottle along with a funnel, the rubber stopper, and a spoon.
After that, he states.
I do not worry about the sterility of this because this solution is very bacteriocidal. Perhaps it should be filtered to get out particulate matter but I have never seen this to be a problem.
Dr Levy adds:
We pass the final solution from one IV bottle to another vacuum IV bottle in an IV line through a
millipore filter. Probably not essential, but no doubt gives better legal protection than medical protection if any problems or infection were to arise. An alternative would be to use a millipore filter IV line with each administration to the patient.
This is the procedure that Cathcart (his nurses) used for decades without incident or problems.
I am not expert. My doctor orders the sodium ascorbate from a compounding pharmacist. They will sell for $100 plus shipping. 500 CC container (with 250 CC of sodium ascorbate.) Same as the stock solution Cathcart described.
