High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C Infusions
Intravenous (IV) vitamin C infusion therapy may be used as an adjuvant therapy for many health conditions including cancer treatment. Intravenous vitamin C is an immune system booster and has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-histamine properties. Very high doses of vitamin C appears to be toxic (lethal) to cancer cells.
The high doses of vitamin C required to be effective for cancer treatments (15 to 60 grams/infusion) may only be given by an intravenous route. Oral administration of a dose this high would not be tolerated or absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. Many intolerable side effects would occur with oral doses anywhere near these levels. IV infusions of high doses of vitamin C along with various other antioxidants and nutrients may be given to assist in treating various cancers. High doses of vitamin C given intravenously have very few side effects.
Each patient is individually evaluated at the Wellness Center and a specific treatment protocol is recommended.
