In the early 1970s, desperate to find a treatment for his chronic hay fever and stuffy nose, Dr. Cathcart discovered the merits of vitamin C after reading Pauling"s "Vitamin C and the Common Cold." He became fascinated with the idea that with the onset of a viral illness, the body can process increased amounts of vitamin C without causing its most common side effect, diarrhea. His research led him to develop the "Bowel Tolerance Theory of Vitamin C," a concept that the more potent the viral disease, the higher the dosage of vitamin C that can be utilized for treatment.
His research resulted in a 1981 paper on titrating vitamin C to bowel tolerance, which became a landmark paper in the field, according to Sandra Goodman, Ph.D.
