High-dose Vitamin C / Ascorbic Acid has been studied as an effective treatment for cancer patients since the 1970s. A Scottish surgeon named Ewan Cameron worked with Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling to study the possible benefits of vitamin C therapy in clinical trials of cancer patients in the late 1970s and early 1980's. It was demonstrated that using intravenous Vitamin C in higher doses (between 25-75grams) increases the body’s hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production. H2O2 (water with an extra oxygen molecule) is not harmful to healthy cells and tissues, but can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cancer cells.
How Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) works in killing cancer:
Increased production of hydrogen peroxide production (pro-oxidant)
Overall “Positive” Effects of Intravenous Vitamin C:
Anti-angiogenesis (stop the blood supply that feeds cancer)
Immune system support (interferon, interleukin, etc.)
And much more....
Correction of any possible vitamin C deficiency (i.e. fatigue, bleeding)
Immune-modulation (enhance or calm down)
Cytotoxic to cancer (kills individual cancer cells)
Support white blood cells
Stimulation of collagen formation -
Helps heal healthy tissue where the tumor is removed from the body
Inhibition of hyaluronidase - prevents metastais or cancer spread
Enhanced wound healing after surgeries, biopsies
Support the bone marrow and blood platelets production
Reduces pain and tumor size while killing cancer, virus, bacteria, fungus, etc.
Anti-stress and anti-depressant properties
Extremely Supportive of the Entire Body While Having the Ability to Fight Cancer
Intravenous Vitamin C is effective against cancer and bacterial infections, allergies, and even some viruses. It also simultaneously boosts the immune system’s functions. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a major water-soluble antioxidant with a variety of biological functions. It helps maintain proper immune cell function. Even though vitamin C commonly functions as an antioxidant, it can also act as a pro-oxidant, in that it actually oxidizes cancerous tissues, but not beneficial tissues. Vitamin C converts free radicals into hydrogen peroxide, a molecule that can damage cell membranes if not neutralised by an enzyme inside the cell called catalase. Healthy cells contain catalase, cancer and virus cells mostly do not.
Vitamin C taken orally is well absorbed through the intestine, but only up to a certain level (usually about 15-30%). The unused portion of the vitamin passes straight through the digestive tract and is eliminated in the feces. Only the intravenous administration of vitamin C produces high plasma and urine concentrations needed to kill virus, cancer, etc.
Vitamin C / Ascorbic Acid taken intravenously goes directly to the body’s tissues
Why is intravenous vitamin C is more effective than oral vitamin C in the treatment of cancer?
* Even by taking up to 18 grams per day orally in divided doses throughout the day, the blood levels do not change and do not exceed 0.2 mMol/L.
* Intravenous vitamin C bypasses the tight control by the body leading to a 70-fold higher blood levels with only a 2 gram infusion.
* A simple infusion of 5 grams of vitamin C produces a blood value of 3mMol/L and the research has shown that you can kill most cancer cells in the laboratory with values between 0.5 to 3mMol/L
* Vitamin C levels in the body are tightly controlled by the bowels and the kidney’s (i.e. the body gets rid of it quickly)
. At the proper levels, Vitamin C produces anti-histamine, anti-toxin, anti-biotic, and antioxidant properties. Vitamin C is also known for its anti-aging properties. The benefits of long-term vitamin C consumption are widely acknowledged and include the reduction and elimination of cancer tumors, cardiovascular disease, and cataracts. Higher vitamin C intakes have also been associated with increases in HDL cholesterol (the beneficial cholesterol), and decreases in LDL cholesterol oxidation, decreased blood pressure, and decreased cardiovascular mortality.
After mercury dental procedures, Vitamin C infusions can chelate mercury in the blood and allow it to be excreted in the urine and the bile (that drains into the large intestine to be excreted with feces). Many dentists recommend taking vitamin C immediately after treatments. Chronic fatigue, wasting conditions and other poorly defined illnesses can often be helped by intravenous vitamin C.
Vitamin C can be helpful in the treatment of cancer at all stages. When taken by intravenous infusion, vitamin C (IVC) can reach much higher levels in the blood than when it is taken by mouth. Studies suggest that these higher levels of vitamin C cause the death of cancer cells. Megadose infusions of up to 80 grams of vitamin C per day increase ´oxygen´ levels in cells - and oxygen kills cancer. The anticancer effect of vitamin C in different types of cancer cells involves a chemical reaction that causes cells to produce hydrogen peroxide, which then causes cells to explode and die.
A severe deficiency (lack) of vitamin C in the diet causes scurvy, a disease with symptoms of extreme weakness, lethargy, easy bruising, and bleeding. The lack of vitamin C in patients with scurvy makes collagen thinner in texture; when vitamin C is given, collagen becomes thicker (imporving the appearance of skin and bodily features). Some have suggested that most, if not all, cancer patients are greatly deficient in vitamin C, hence they suffer from scurvy. It could be said that cancers and virus are a side effect of scurvy.
Treatment with high-dose Vitamin C Electrolyte Infusion often slowes or stops the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, breast cancer, lung cancer, and other types of cancer cells.
Surveys of healthcare practitioners at United States CAM conferences in recent years have shown that high-dose IV vitamin C is frequently given to patients as a treatment for infections, fatigue, and cancers, including breast cancer.
Laboratory studies have shown the following, regarding Vitamin C infusion:
* Supplements and supports essential Vitamins, Minerals, Nutrients and Amino Acids.
* A natural antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal and natural detoxifier.
* Boosts and restores Immune System Functions, effective as a flu vaccine.
* Effectively eliminates and neutralizes a wide variety of toxins and infections, assists in returning body to pre-deficiency states.
* Increases energy and appetite.
* Provides Intravenous nutritional support to patients who cannot or will not eat.
* Stimulates collagen formation.
* Inhibits Hyaluronidase to prevent Metastasis.
* Induces tumor cell death (Apoptosis).
* Compliments other natural therapies.
* When combined with magnesium, relieves pain.
Can't tolerate antibiotics? Intravenous Vitamin C with Electrolytes is an immune system booster with anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-histamine properties. Receiving a vitamin C infusion instead of antibiotics for common problems such as a urinary tract infection is a healthier option. People who suffer reoccurring viral infections such as warts or herpes find long term relief without the need for medication. It also offers protection from common ailments such as cold and flu viruses.
Negative side effects of vitamin C IV are rare. However, there are concerns and potential side effects to be considered:
A report described acute oxalate nephropathy in a patient with bilateral ureteric obstruction and renal insufficiency who received 60 gram IVC. Consequently, we need to ensure that your kidneys are working well enough before beginning and especially with a higher-dose infusion.
A rare hemolysis can occur in patients with a red cell glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD) and so this may be screened in select cases.
Localized pain at the infusion site can occur if the infusion rate is too high or the pH too low. This is easily corrected by either slowing the rate or adjusting the formula.
Vitamin C may decrease the levels of calcium, chloride, and potassium and as a consequence some patients may experience shakiness or ache. This is treated by further adjusting the formula with those ingredients. The BSI formula includes these elements in the mix to insure product stability, pH and compatability with the body.
Given the amount of fluid and sodium that is used as the carrier for vitamin C, any condition which could be affected by the increased fluid load (i.e. congestive heart failure, ascites, edema, pleural effusion, etc.) needs to be monitored more closely and a tailored protocol given accordingly.
IVC may be dehydrating and cause a temporary lowering of blood sugar, and so proper hydration and nourishment needs to be emphasized before and after each treatment.
As with any intravenous injection, infiltration or vein irritation is always possible
