Intravenous Vitamin C, A Powerful And Safe Treatment For CancerMy mother died from cancer of the duodenum in December 2002. She had been waiting to get the go-ahead from her doctors to receive toxic conventional treatment, chemotherapy and maybe radiation. Then the oncologist informed her that she was too sick for such treatment--which he should have done a lot earlier in my opinion, instead of waiting so long to bow out of the picture.
My father was a renowned, much-published professor, the former chairman of the Department of Pharmacology at one of the leading pharmacy schools in the US. He and I went to work looking for alternative treatments for my mother. Quite accidentally he came across intravenous Vitamin C. He read up on its use against cancer and was very impressed. He said the only reason intravenous Vitamin C is not being widely used for cancer is because there is not much money to be made from it. (In 2003 I read a column by an oncologist who admitted that it is the high fees charged for chemotherapy that keeps oncologists operating in the black.)
My father sought the go-ahead for intravenous Vitamin C from my mother's surgeon. He received a not commendably prompt positive response and ordered intravenous Vitamin C for my mother. Unfortunately, to our great sorrow she died before it arrived.
Intravenous Vitamin C kills cancer cells but does only good things for healthy cells. It can be used as a stand-alone therapy or as an adjunct to other therapies. It causes the toxic conventional therapies to be more successful and protects against their damaging effects. I don't expect to ever get cancer, but if I do, one of the first things I will do is start intravenous Vitamin C while weighing my other options. Especially if you are told there is nothing an oncologist can do for you, find a doctor who will administer intravenous Vitamin C for you. Obviously one with a reputation for openness to alternative medicine is the best bet.
I have also heard that intravenous Coenzyme Q10 and intravenous glutathione have been used effectively against cancer. Magnesium is also administered intravenously.
Intravenous Vitamin C was also used successfully against the SARS epidemic a few years ago.
An excellent article entitled "How to Get Intravenous Vitamin C Given to a Hospitalized Patient: A Checklist" is at http://www.doctoryourself.com/strategies.html, reproduced at http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Have-Cancer/1482788. There is much more on intravenous Vitamin C at /www.doctoryourself.com, and of course a Google search will produce much.
UPDATE. Just read that intravenous alpha lipoic acid is also used for very serious cancers. Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that has the unusual trait of being both fat- and water-soluble.
Peer Reviewed Publication Supporting Intravenous Vitamin C for Cancer Patients
Collaboration between Conventional Oncologists and Alternative Medical Practitioners Results in New Direction for Old Methodology
WICHITA, Kan., March 25, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Riordan Clinic announced today publication in the Journal of Translational Medicine results of a collaboration between oncologists, alternative medicine practitioners, and basic researchers, which proposes a new use of intravenous vitamin C for treatment of cancer.
The paper, available freely online at http://www.translational-medicine.com/content/pdf/1479-5876-9-25.pdf, describes the possibility of using intravenous vitamin C to treat inflammation associated with cancer. The rationale is provided that intravenous, but not oral, vitamin C may be capable of addressing issues in cancer patients such as wasting (cachexia), immune suppression, and improving quality of life. Citing 246 references, the paper synthesized existing knowledge regarding the use of intravenous vitamin C for numerous medical conditions and seeks re-evaluation of the place of intravenous vitamin C in the context of conventional oncology practice.
"Currently there is a great divide in the way intravenous vitamin C is viewed," said Thomas Ichim, Board Member of the Riordan Clinic and first author of the publication. "On the one hand, you have alternative medicine practitioners, who have been claiming very interesting results in practical treatment of cancer patients, but cannot explain any molecular rationale for its use or potential effects. On the other hand you have a great amount of scientific literature supporting possible relevance of this approach in cancer. This paper is a significant step towards closing the divide."
In the past, the use of vitamin C in the treatment of cancer has been considered controversial since some studies have claimed excellent results in extending lifespan of cancer patients, whereas other studies have not seen any effects. The discrepancy seems to be explained by studies seeing positive effects utilizing intravenous vitamin C, whereas the failed studies used oral vitamin C. Scientists at the Riordan Clinic were the first to publish, and patent, that intravenous, but not oral vitamin C, can achieve significant concentration in the blood in order to selectively kill tumor cells.
"We are proud to have had such a multi-disciplinary collaboration as part of this team including scientists/doctors from University of Western Ontario, Canada, the Torrey Pines Research Institute, the University of Puerto Rico, University of Connecticut, University of Nebraska Medical Center, University of Latvia, the Lawson Health Research Institute, and Loma Linda University," stated Brian Riordan, CEO of the Riordan Clinic. "The Riordan Clinic (www.riordanclinic.org) has been using intravenous vitamin C for decades; my personal mission is to seek input from colleagues in conventional oncology in order to figure out how we can collectively generate best treatment methods for our patients. This paper is a small step in what we anticipate will be many successful collaborations with our friends in conventional oncology practice." Funding for the publication was provided by Allan P. Markin's Pure North S'Energy Foundation.
