High dose vitamin C has great potential to fight cancer and is accessible and safe. At low concentrations Vitamin C ( ascorbic acid) functions primarily as an antioxidant that protects cells from oxidative stress. At higher concentrations, ascorbic acid acts as a pro-oxidant that imposes oxidative stress and induces cell death of cancer cells. In order to achieve the high concentrations required to kill cancer cells, Ascorbic acid has to be given intravenously. There are multiple reports and studies indicating the anticancer potential of vitamin C in humans.
Did you know that over 40% of cancer patients actually die from malnutrition, not from cancer. A well nourished cancer patient can protect healthy cells against the toxic effects of chemo and radiation and can better manage and beat the disease. In addition to High dose Vit C infusions we recommend periodic nutrient infusions too.
In general, high dose vitamin C infusions are administered two to three times per week. A G6PD blood test is required prior to starting treatments.
All Glow Wellness infusions are physician formulated with the highest quality nutrients that deliver therapeutic concentrations of essential nutrients directly to your cells, where they are needed. The nutrients in Glow infusions are natural to the body and are required by the cells to function and sustain health.
Do you have questions? We have answers.
Put simply, Vitamin C works with metals in the body to create hydrogen peroxide. Whereas normal cells have the ability to reduce the effects of hydrogen peroxide, cancer cells do not. The high concentration of the resulting hydrogen peroxide damages the DNA of the cancer cells cuts off their energy supply and kills them. Vitamin C, even in very high doses, is toxic only to the cancer cells without harming the healthy cells in your body.
High dose IVC is conditioned on lab work that allows for initial and ongoing IVC therapy. Adequate G6PD levels, renal, liver and bone marrow function are required.
Intravenous vitamin C boosts immunity. It can stimulate collagen formation to help the body wall off the tumor. It inhibits hyaluronidase, an enzyme that tumors use to metastasize and invade other organs throughout the body. It induces apoptosis to help program cancer cells to die early.
One of the biggest hurdles is the critics pointing to the lack of controlled double-blind studies demonstrating Vitamin C’s efficacy in treating cancer. Double-blind studies are typically conducted by pharmaceutical companies. The studies are huge undertakings and prohibitively expensive. Vitamin C is a naturally occurring nutrient that cannot be patented and, therefore, drug companies are not willing to sponsor the research. Moreover, the billion-dollar cancer drug industry does not want to prove that a naturally occurring Vitamin is more effective than their drugs. They would be putting themselves out of business. And don’t forget, cancer is a very big business. This is not to say that legitimate research has not been performed that demonstrates the curative effects of Vitamin C on many diseases including cancer. If you perform a search in PubMed, a government research database, you will find over 50,000 remarkable studies on Vitamin C. Please read this research for yourself and feel confident that substantial evidence exists supporting the use of Vitamin C in cancer treatment.
