IV Vitamin C therapy
As part of our cancer treatments, we include Intravenous vitamin C therapy as an important base in most of our adjunctive therapeutic plans.
Intravenous vitamin C refers to the method of administering vitamin C parenterally (i.e. to bypass the gut and liver), in order to achieve therapeutic levels in the blood, tissues and organs. Let us explain how and why we offer IVC in our clinic.
How does the IVC affect cancer cells?
- Cancer cell death seems to occur more preferentially especially combined with other immuno-therapeutic intervention and virotherapy
- It assists cancer patients to tolerate the side effects of other systemic treatment modalities and achieve a greater feeling of wellness
- It decreases inflammation and assists in halting tumour growth as shown in cell markers
Why do patients choose IV Vitamin C?
It may be given by intravenous (IV) infusion – through a vein into the bloodstream. When taken by intravenous infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken orally.
It improves the quality of life in general, by positively influencing the physical, mental and emotional functions as well as relieving such symptoms as fatigue, nausea and vomiting, pain, and loss of appetite.
IV Vitamin C treatment blocks tumor growth in certain types of pancreatic, liver, prostate, and ovarian cancers, sarcoma, and malignant mesothelioma.
