IV Vitamin C


Vitamin C IV is a very popular therapy that we recommend to patients of our clinic. While we believe that it is best used in combination with a multitude of therapies to boost one's immune response and help one's body recover from disease. We are seeing more and more patients that need this beneficial addition, whether it be just a "quick immune boost" or a prolonged, steady therapy, the addition of IV Vitamin C can be a fantastic addition to an alternative cancer treatment protocol.



Vitamin C has long been touted as a powerful antioxidant with abundant benefits including immune enhancement, protection from viruses and bacteria, cardiovascular protection, eye diseases and even skin wrinkles. What many people may not know, however, is that in high-dose IV Vitamin C, may also help kill cancer cells.

Put simply, high-dose Vitamin C (available only through an IV) works with metals in the body to create hydrogen peroxide, an oxidative process. Whereas normal cells have the ability to reduce the effects of hydrogen peroxide, cancer cells do not. The high concentration of the resulting hydrogen peroxide damages the DNA of the cancer cells, cuts off their energy supply and can help kill them. Vitamin C, even in very high doses, is toxic only to the cancer cells without harming the healthy cells in your body.



In addition to it’s benefit as a non-toxic chemotherapeutic agent, intravenous vitamin C also boosts immunity. It can stimulate collagen formation to help the body wall off the tumor. It inhibits hyaluronidase, an enzyme that tumors use to metastasize and invade other organs throughout the body. It induces apoptosis to help program cancer cells into dying early.

Is Traditional Medicine a Critic?

There is a lack of controlled double-blind studies demonstrating Vitamin C’s efficacy in treating cancer. Double-blind studies are typically conducted by pharmaceutical companies, so don't expect to see any in the near future. The studies are huge undertakings and prohibitively expensive. Vitamin C is a naturally occurring nutrient that cannot be patented and, therefore, drug companies are not willing to sponsor the research. Moreover, the billion-dollar cancer drug industry may not want to prove that a naturally occurring Vitamin is more effective than their drugs.

This is not to say that legitimate research has not been performed that demonstrates the curative effects of Vitamin C on many diseases including cancer. If you perform a search in PubMed, a government research database, you will find over 50,000 remarkable studies on Vitamin C. See below the provided links.
