Vitamin C Treatment
Vitamin C IV
Vitamin C IV: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that has the power to boost immune function, increase resistance to infection and protect against a wide range of diseases. But now, research at the National Institute of Health is beginning to suggest that vitamin C deserves a chance to find its niche in the arsenal of anti-cancer therapies.
Vitamin C has different characteristics if given orally as opposed to intravenous. Studies suggest that even high doses of vitamin C given by mouth is poorly absorbed. While oral vitamin C boosts immunity and assists tissue repair, it is too weak to do much in killing or inhibiting cancer cells.
Vitamin C, given intravenous, interacts with iron and other metals to create hydrogen peroxide which damages the DNA and mitochondria of cancer cells, shutting down their energy supply (hydrogen peroxide is the drug that preferentially kills cancer cells while leaving normal cells unharmed). The only way to get high doses of vitamin C blood levels to the concentrations required to kill cancer cells, is to administer it intravenously.
