Four Benefits Of IV Vitamin C Therapy For CancerRuss Curran
IV Vitamin C therapy for cancer is healthy for normal cells and destroys cancer cells metabolically.
We all know that vitamin C aka ascorbic acid is a nutrient essential to overall wellness. In fact, experts consider it an “ideal nutrition marker” for good health. Using iv vitamin c therapy for cancer at our healing center is one of our core metabolic therapies.
Vitamin c is well known for helping prevent complications of the common cold. It also helps protect and fortify the body against heart and eye diseases, skin problems and immune system deficiencies, among others. It is also vital in the development and repair of all our body tissues. Vitamin c assists in various functions like collagen formation wound healing and bone maintenance as well.
Free radicals are harmful molecules that can cause serious health problems. Vitamin C is also an ally because it is an antioxidant. An antioxidant is basically a ‘good’ kind of molecule that protects the body from free radicals.
Did you know that vitamin C, particularly intravenously administered high-dose vitamin C, is also beneficial for cancer patients?
Here are four scientifically-backed benefits of vitamin C therapy for cancer.
- Challenges cancer cells at a metabolic level without harming healthy cells. Unlike healthy cells, cancer cells cannot metabolize glucose using oxygen to produce energy. They also lack certain enzymes including the antioxidant enzyme catalase. When a cancer patient is administered with IV vitamin C, the hydrogen peroxide is disposed of in a normal cell by catalase. Since cancer cells lack this enzyme, the peroxide kills it.
- Attacks cancer stem cells. Cancer stem cells are the “driving force of carcinogenesis.” They are back-up cells that enable the maintenance, progression, drug resistance and recurrence of cancer. One study found that intravenous high-dose vitamin C was significantly more powerful in killing cancer stem cells compared to an experimental drug. In another study, researchers found that vitamin C injection was effective in attacking cancer stem cells. These cells have become resistant to the antibiotic doxycycline.
- Reduce the proliferation of cancer cell lines. Laboratory studies(cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/hp/vitamin-c-pdq) have shown that vitamin C therapy for cancer can help decrease cell proliferation in certain types of cancer. These cancers include pancreatic, prostate, colon and neuroblastoma.
- Improves the quality of life for patients. One of the major downsides of conventional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation is its adverse impact on the patient’s overall health. Intravenous vitamin C has been noted to help manage these side effects. Benefits include pain reduction, infection prevention, increased energy and appetite, improved survival rate and post-surgery recovery time, and reduced probability of cancer-related angiogenesis, sepsis, and inflammation.
Among patients who received a combination of IV vitamin C and conventional treatments, research showed that there was a “slower progression of the disease.”
Why Does Vitamin C Have To Be Administered Via IV?
Is it not enough to orally ingest vitamin C supplements? For regular health maintenance, and together with a balanced diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, it should be.
But for cancer therapy, vitamin C is best administered via IV. Vitamin C has a “short half-life” lasting only two hours in a person’s body. For treatment purposes, it is most effective as intravenous infusion because this allows for higher levels in the blood than when taken orally.
IV vitamin c, administered at high doses given at a high rate, has far better results of eliminating cancer cells. If a person attempted to consume this amount orally it would simply be too much. They would spend most of their day in the bathroom.
