Cancer and Intravenous Vitamin C

Did you know that when under stress most other animals will significantly increase their production of vitamin C in order to protect their tissues and withstand the effects of stress?  Unfortunately for humans, we don’t make vitamin C ourselves, and have to get it from other places.

Cancer is stressful on its own, and conventional cancer therapies like chemo and radiation are even more stressful on the body.  Intravenous Vitamin C has been shown in several studies to be an important part of cancer therapy. Oral vitamin C is great, but you can’t get 75 grams absorbed as easily, and oral vitamin C hasn’t been shown to kill cancer cells as well as IV vitamin C.

By itself higher doses of IV vitamin C increase oxidative stress in the body which cancer cells cannot protect themselves against.  In this way, Vitamin C works similarly to some chemotherapies without the side effects.

Together with chemotherapy, vitamin C has actually been shown to increase the effectiveness of most chemotherapies, including Vincristine, 5-FU, and Cisplatin, among many others.

IV Vitamin C also has a beneficial effect on those people receiving radiation therapy.

Naturopathic medicine has a lot to offer cancer patients.  We can help with quality of life, energy levels and stimulating the immune system to help the body withstand both the disease, and the conventional treatments.

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer, call Human Reconstruction at 916.241.9325 to get on the schedule for IV Vitamin C to help your body win the fight.
