Lung Cancer


How does intravenous vitamin C help lung cancer patients?

Vitamin C in high doses (50-100 grams) given intravenously can increase the blood levels of vitamin C to 14,000 μmol/ L. Nevertheless, the maximum blood level of the oral vitamin C is only 220 μmol/ L. So intravenous vitamin C can achieve a blood level of about 700 times or more than the oral form. High dose vitamin C fights cancer through these mechanisms: It increases oxidative stress by creating more Hydrogen Peroxide around the tumor so disturbing the microenvironment of the tumor cells, it also reduces angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels by the tumor the help tumor grows), and induces apoptosis (programmed cell death) which is against what tumor cells do to survive. So, a high dose of intravenous vitamin C can reduce the aggression of tumor cell division.

What is the clinical evidence of the value of high-dose intravenous vitamin C in cancer patients?

Many research data showed a positive effect of using high-dose vitamin C in cancer. One of these studies is Padayatty et al https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1405876/   who had a study on three patients with lung cancer, bladder cancer, and a paraspinal tumor, all showed a positive anti-tumor response.

How can you receive high-dose intravenous vitamin C?

First, you need to have a normal kidney function and a G 6PD enzyme test. Then you have to be clinically evaluated by your naturopathic doctor to see if you can receive it or not. Then you will receive the IV treatment in a protocol that can be determined by your naturopathic doctor.
