Breast Cancer and High Dose Vitamin C

Posted Dec 31st, 2020 in Tips, Naturopathic Medicine, News


Breast Cancer is considered as one of the most common types of cancer all over the world. In Canada, an updated statistic from the 2020 report of the Canadian Cancer Society revealed that as many as 27,400 patients will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone. At the same year, almost 5100 women would die of Breast Caner and an average number of 75 Canadian Women would be diagnosed with breast cancer everyday.


This article will focus on Breast Cancer and the Role of  the High Dose Vitamin C.

The treatment of Breast Cancer developed dramatically over the last few decades in all aspects of the Oncology Care that involved surgery, chemotherapy, targeted agents, hormonal treatments, and a combination of these interventions. These changes resulted in the improvements in the survival and disease control of Breast Cancer as compared to the older treatments.

Nerveless, the treatment of Breast Cancer still to show better results in terms of survival and local recurrence prevention especially in advanced or metastatic disease.

Patients who develop recurrence or metastases from the Breast Cancer present a real challenge to the oncologists and surgeons based on the need to treat these patients with a more aggressive approaches  with a limited success for many patients.


For that reason, the use of the high Dose Vitamin C was studied and tested against breast cancer cells to find a natural support for these patients, and help their  fight against the Breast Cancer. This does not mean to give up the main oncology treatments (chemotherapy, radiation, targeted agents, and hormonal treatments) . The ideal approach is to run both treatments together to achieve the best results of both approaches so long as the Natural approach does not interfere with the main medical approach and it is also effective.

A New Research on Oncology published in 2019, Found that administering High Doses of Vitamin C can Inhibit the Migration and Invasion of Breast Cancer Cells through suppression of a genetic process called EMT or Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition. For more details of this research check this link  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31571901/ 

In conclusion, research on the Breast Cancer Cells proved a benefit of using the High Dose Vitamin C in the suppression of migration of Breast Cancer cells to distant sites which means the possibility of reducing the chances of the spread  of this disease.
