HIGH DOSE VITAMIN C
Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C as it's more commonly known has been used for decades on a wide range of medical conditions ranging from chronic fatigue, Lyme Disease and Epstein-Barr virus to more acute infections such as Influenza, Cellulitis, Pneumonia and Sepsis as well as an adjunctive cancer therapy. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant.
The anti-oxidant capabilities aid in optimal cellular functioning, energy production and help combat the oxidative stress incurred from daily living.
It is believed that Cancer cells react uniquely to intravenous Vitamin C by taking up 5x more Vitamin C than our regular tissue. Inside the cell cancer cell Vitamin C converts to hydrogen peroxide, and as cancer cells don't have the normal intracellular organelles to handle hydrogen peroxide they are destroyed. Healthy cells do not respond this way to vitamin C. Thus, it is thought that the intravenous administration of high doses of vitamin C may target and destroy cancer cells in the body while not harming healthy cells.
We require any patients wanting to use high dose vitamin C for cancer therapy have the approval of an oncologist or specialist in integrative cancer therapies.
High dose IV vitamin C will require a consultation and certain lab results prior to administration. For your convenience, we provide MD consultations & blood draws in our office.
