IV Therapy and Cancer

IV Therapy and Cancer

Many studies regarding IV therapy and cancer have been made over the years with the following results shown:

  • Treatment with high-dose vitamin C (ascorbic acid) slowed the growth and spread of liver, colon, prostage and other types of cancer cells.
  • High-dose vitamin C with varous types of chemotherapy may be more effective than chemotherapy alone
  • Ascorbic acid with arsenic trioxide may be more effective in ovarian cancer.
  • Vitamin C combined with gemcitabine may be more effective in treating pancreatic cancer
  • Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine may be more effective in treating malignant mesothelioma cells.
  • Futhermore, IV ascorbic acid has been shown in some studies to help patients to have complete remission after a series of high dose treatments. 


IV versus Oral ascorbic acid:

Some people might ask:

Why would I do IV vitamin C when I can take it orally?

The answer:

the use of high dose provides the most positive results. It is also impossible to take the same dose orally (IV treatments can range from 10 grams to 100 grams/treatment).

Examples of some studies regarding IV therapy and Cancer

High-Dose Parenteral Ascorbate Enhanced Chemosensitivity of Ovarian Cancer and Reduced Toxicity of Chemotherapy 

Improving quality of life 

Vitamin C for immune health and anti-cancer

2 studies show that high dose intravenous vitamin C can kill cancer cells via producing hydrogen peroxide. The discussions also highlight the following:
High dose vitamin C lowers risk of metastasis or spreading
High dose vitamin lowers tumour size
High dose vitamin C lowers inflammation and
increases the quality of life
