Vitamin C Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C Therapy
Vitamin C has long been known for its immune boosting abilities and high antioxidant levels. However, a new and extremely valuable use for Vitamin C has gotten much attention: Vitamin C Intravenous (IV) Therapy for cancer.
Conditions It Manages
Studies are still being conducted but thus far many have revealed very promising evidence that Vitamin C is a very powerful aid in fighting cancer, including breast, lung and brain. Many studies have been done that have been unsuccessful however, only small doses of Vitamin C given orally were recorded in many of those cases, which is not recommended or practiced.
Additionally, there are numerous mechanisms that Vitamin C has in aiding the patient’s ability to overcome the cancer. These include: Enhancement of the immune system, stronger collagen formation to wall off tumors, a negative effect on cancer cell growth proven experimentally, neutralizing carcinogenic substances, preventing cellular free radical damage due to it’s powerful anti-oxidant effect, inhibiting hyaluronidase – an enzyme that tumors use to spread, and a positive effect on cancer cell death (apoptosis).
To help fight the many kinds of cancer extremely high doses of Vitamin C are injected intravenously into a patient’s vein. The vitamin produces hydrogen peroxide around the cancer cells that kills them and therefore shrinks the tumor. However, it is unique in that healthy cells are not damaged in any way due to the richness in antioxidants that Vitamin C contains. Therefore, there are no harsh side affects compared to other cancer therapies. This specialized therapy also boosts the patient’s immune system versus traditional therapies that weaken it.
The success of the vitamin C infusion is enhanced by the patient adhering to an anti-cancer diet, which includes avoiding sugar, alkalinizing the body, taking additional supplements that stimulate the immune system and have strong anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant properties. Additionally it is recommended to avoid inflammatory causing foods, adhering to a daily exercise schedule, and removing toxins from the body, as well as, supporting the liver, which is the main detoxifier in the body.
