The use of IV vitamin C for cancer is nothing new. This treatment has been utilized since the 1970s all over the world. In fact, there are ongoing studies and clinical evidence that shows significant improvement in cancer patients’ quality of life, physically, mentally and emotionally.
This article aims to show you how a high dose IV vitamin C therapy can help fight three types of cancer. Read on to find out more.
1. Metastatic Liver Cancer
Freeofdisease.com published an article stating that IV vitamin C for cancer can help with fighting metastatic liver cancer. It says:
“IV Vitamin C Puts Metastatic Liver Cancer into Remission: In this remarkable new case study from Korea, intravenous vitamin C at a dose of 70 grams per infusion (given two times weekly) has apparently cured an elderly woman of her liver cancer. The 74-year-old woman had primary liver cancer (HCC) which had metastasized to her lungs and lymph nodes and was not being helped with conventional treatments. But after 10 months of treatment with IV vitamin C, the metastases had disappeared and the primary liver tumor had shrunk down in size. After another year of vitamin C therapy, and three more rounds of conventional treatment (transarterial chemoembolization—called “TACE”), PET-CT scans showed the liver tumor had completely disappeared.”
This finding is indeed remarkable considering the survival rate of patients who have metastatic liver cancer is slim to none.
2. Colorectal cancer
In an article published by Yogesh Sharma last October 12, 2017, he wrote that recently researchers from Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Centre at the Yenepoya University, Karnataka, India, have discovered how high doses of water-soluble Vitamin C and niacin or Vitamin B3 can kill cancer stem cells.
According to the article:
“Research team lead by Dr Bipasha Bose and Dr Sudheer Shenoy investigated the effects of high doses and low doses of the two vitamins and found that low doses (dose range 5-25 micromolar) of Vitamin C and B3 lead to high proliferation and aggressiveness of colon cancer stem cells thereby indicating a need to be cautious while prescribing low doses of these vitamins to colon cancer patients.
However, high doses of the two vitamins (dose range 100 to 1000 micromolar) were successful in killing cancer stem cells. Such high doses of vitamins can only be achieved through intravenous injections in colon cancer patients…
This work is of significance, and researchers hope to establish a therapeutic dose of Vitamin C and B3 for colon cancer stem cell therapy. “If the therapeutic dose gets well validated under in vivo animal models, clinical trials can be a possibility in the long run,” added Dr. Bose.”
Lots of colorectal cancer patients will significantly benefit from this treatment should the clinical trial show positive results.
3. Breast Cancer
The National Cancer Institute, one of eleven agencies that are part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is the leading agency for cancer research and training, found this about IV vitamin C for cancer patients:
“Intravenous (IV) vitamin C was studied in patients with breast cancer who were treated with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The study found that patients who received IV vitamin C had a better quality of life and fewer side effects than those who did not.”
With these pieces of evidence set in place, there is no reason why Oncologists would not include high doses of IV vitamin C for cancer as part of their standard clinical practice. Cancer patients now have a higher chance of beating this disease and live a far more healthier and longer life.
