High dose intravenous Vitamin C
Intravenous administration of Vitamin C bypasses the intestinal absorption system. This allows plasma concentrations to be elevated to pharmacologic concentrations that are unachievable via oral administration. When taken orally Vitamin C works as an anti-oxidant; however, when taken intravenously, Vitamin C now works as a pro-oxidant by generation of extracellular hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). What makes Intravenous Vitamin C unique is that it only targets cancer cells and does not negatively impact your normal, healthy cells. Patients receiving this therapy typically better tolerate the side effects of conventional treatments. Studies demonstrate the Intravenous Vitamin C enhances certain chemotherapeutics, something we also see clinically in the practice. Intravenous Vitamin C is a very safe and is very well tolerated.
Possible Benefits of receiving Intravenous Vitamin C
- Improved quality of life
- Cytotoxic to cancer by a pro-oxidation effect by increasing the production of hydrogen peroxide
- Prevention of recurrence/survivorship when implemented after conventional therapies are completed.
- Enhances chemotherapy and minimizes the side effects
- Enhances radiation and minimizes the side effects
- Anti-angiogenesis (stop the blood supply that feeds cancer)
- Immune system support
- Enhanced wound healing after surgeries, biopsies
