Or high-dose intravenous vitamin C is an example of immunotherapy, which is especially suited to the treatment of cancerous diseases.
In high concentrations, vitamin C is lethal to cancer cells, as the cancer cells are not able to break down the accumulated hydrogen salts. At the same time, vitamin C strengthens the immune response and has a general anti-inflammatory effect.
In 1972, author Irving Stone collected hundreds of scientific references in his much-known book “The Healing Factor: C-Vitamin Against Disease”.
In the book, he demonstrated the healing effect of vitamin C in a wide range of diseases, including cancer, when mediated in large concentrations and directly into the blood vessel. When vitamin C is transmitted intravenously, it is grams for grams 2½ times stronger than the vitamin C taken orally as a supplement.
The reason is that the gastrointestinal tract is bypassed so that blood concentrations are quickly reached other mammals routinely experience during disease and otherwise not possible by the use of Vitamin C alone.
Vitamin C is a healing factor with numerous vital functions, as well as enhancing the immune system both locally and throughout the body. You also need to be aware that the vitamin C level in the body is significantly reduced in connection with disease, so in any case one needs to supplement with Vitamin C.
Especially for vitamin C is that in sufficiently high blood concentrations it acts as a cell killer on cancer cells in a manner similar to chemotherapy. The cell killing effect is achieved by the formation of hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide) in the cancer cells, which is obtained by taking the high dose Vitamin IV intravenously, either alone or as a supplement to chemotherapy.
Vitamin C is transmitted as a drop over approx. three hours. In this way, the patient can achieve a blood concentration that is up to 70 times higher than can be achieved through ordinary vitamin C supplements.
Bruce Phillip Kyle founder of Aarhus Private clinic introduced C vitamin in large doses intravenously in Denmark in 1990. Initially as treatment for mercury poisoning, later as cancer treatment.
Claus Hancke founder of the IOM clinic in Lyngby has the same experience base as Bruce and is just as great advocate for IV-C treatment for cancer sufferers among others.
The treatment initiates the body’s own formidable ability to heal itself using the vitamin C’s impressive versatility in clinical medicine.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the vitamin C cell killing effect against cancer cells both “in vitro” and “in vivo”. In practice, these effects can only be achieved with intravenous infusions, where the effect is dependent on achieving high enough vitamin C levels.
Therefore, IV-C can be well-regarded as a natural form of chemotherapy. There is considerable evidence that the cytotoxic effect of chemo and radiation therapy is significantly improved when combined with IV-C treatment.
High dose vitamin C stimulates the formation of new lymphocytes in bone marrow as well as the production of interferon in T lymphocytes. The infiltration capability of the immune cell, encapsulation of tumor processes, inhibition of foreign cell proliferations, and the elimination of free radicals is initiated.
Recent studies have shown that NK (natural killer cell) activation is increased and that the greatest effect is from 24-48 hours after ingestion. Here it should be emphasized that activation of the killer cells is an important objective in immune therapy because killer cells are responsible for the destruction of cancer cells and viruses.
In intravenous vitamin C infusions, it is possible to effectively treat severe hospital infections, chronic virus infections (herpes, mononucleosis, hepatitis) and autoimmune diseases with severe inflammatory reactions. The individual dosage depends on how severe the disease is.
The anti-inflammatory effect of vitamin C is the result of several processes: (1) a direct antimicrobial action against virus, bacterium and fungi (2) stopping free radical reactions in the inflammatory process (3) the reduction of inflammatory stimulants by PGE2; and (4) the increase of anti-inflammatory signaling agents from PGE1.
During an IV-C cure, most patients will feel stronger and have more energy, less pain and increased appetite. This improvement in general well-being should be seen in relation to the pronounced detoxification effect of vitamin C. For example, when cancer patients are treated with chemo and radiation therapy, it is common for these patients to feel bad. This is partly due to toxic decay products left by dead cancer cells.
There is solid evidence that the toxic side effects of chemo and radiation therapy are significantly reduced with IV-C treatment. In addition, there is a comprehensive literature on C-vitamin cleansing effect on a wide range of chemical toxins.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C is able to counteract the large amounts of destructive free radicals that constantly bombard the body from the environment (smoke, rays, chemicals) and from the body’s own processors (inflammation, energy conversion, detoxification).
Free radicals are highly reactive oxygen compounds that flow through cell membranes and DNA. Even our own immune cells use free radical “irradiation” when cancer cells and viruses are destroyed.
During chemo and radiation therapy, the cytotoxic effect is mediated through free radicals. Antioxidants such as vitamin C block free radicals and protect DNA from mutation damage.
For normal cells, antioxidants are a shield so they are better able to survive the fight against cancer cells. For cancer cells, antioxidants are ineffective. The cancer cell’s abnormal metabolism makes them useless.
