High Dose Vitamin C as a Complementary Therapy to Breast Cancer A Research Finding

Posted Oct 26th, 2021 in Naturopathic Medicine, News, Tips

One of the most common types of Cancer all over the world as well Canada is Breast Cancer. According to the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) updated report published on October 26, 2021, as many as 27,400 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the preceding year, 2020 and this represent as much as 25% of all new cancer cases for women in this year.


Given the magnitude of the problem, and the care needed for patients with breast cancer, many patients are looking now for more support to their conventional treatments for Breast Cancer (such as Surgery, Radiation, Chemotherapy, Hormonal treatments, and the recently introduced targeted therapies).

The reasons that patients look for additional treatments to their conventional care are many such as improving their immune system, reducing the likelihood of treatment morbidities or toxicities, and also supporting their fight against Breast Cancer.  

Online searching for complementary therapies can lead to thousands of herbal remedies, dietary changes,  physical exercises, and supplements. However, one of the most studied and practiced interventions is the use of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C for Breast Cancer. This is the topic today: High Dose Vitamin C as a Complementary Therapy to Breast Cancer A Research Finding which discusses the way how High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C works for Breast Cancer and how it can be a promising complementary treatment for patients with Breast Cancer.

You can look for the full details of this study if you click on that link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7664876/ 

I will summarize here the factors that support the use of the High Dose Vitamin C for patients with Breast Cancer as per this research:

-        The ability of the vitamin C to synthesize the Collagen which is a support material for our cells and tissues this makes it difficult for cancer cells to easily invade the tight network of collagen fibers built around the tumor microenvironment and hence its ability to spread.

-        High Dose Vitamin C is able to prevent the production and synthesis of Prostaglandins Series 2 in the body that can eventually lead to a decrease in vascularity around the tumor tissues so inhibiting their nutrition and survival.

-        High Dose Vitamin C produces an Oxidizing agent (H2O20) which targets the tumor microenvironment and makes it unsuitable for division and replication.


-        If you have any questions about the use of the High Dose Vitamin C and Breast Cancer or to discuss this research, let me know
