HIGH DOSE VITAMIN C
The most impressive use of this powerful therapy is against cancer cells, although its benefits extend far beyond cancer treatment.
Vitamin C is a well-known nutrient and potent antioxidant found in food and dietary supplements. When taken intravenously, much higher levels of Vitamin C may be obtained compared to oral ingestion, where dose and absorption are limited.
Vitamin C, when administered in high doses by intravenous (IV) infusions, can kill cancer cells. Interacting with iron and other metals, it creates hydrogen peroxide; which, in high concentrations, damages the DNA and mitochondria of cancer cells, shuts down their energy supply and kills them outright. Best of all — and unlike virtually all conventional chemotherapy drugs that destroy cancer cells — it is selectively toxic.
No matter how high the concentration, Vitamin C does not harm healthy cells in individuals that produce G6PD, the enzyme that protects them. Since most people are sufficient in this enzyme, a simple test prior to receiving a high dose C infusion will let the doctor know if you are a candidate for this therapy. Although not a cure for cancer, intravenous Vitamin C may improve quality of life, lessen cancer treatment side effects, and possibly inhibit or retard tumor growth.
The medical research supporting the use of IV Vitamin C Therapy is impressive…one of the best antiviral agents available, it has the ability to deactivate and eliminate a wide range of toxins. Enhancing patient resistance, IV Vitamin C will greatly increase the immune system’s ability to neutralize bacterial and fungal infections. The National Institutes of Health has published evidence confirming Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties. The Riordan Clinic has published data verifying Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties as well.
