Intravenous vitamin C is not a mainstream medicine treatment but is has proven itself to be an extremely effective treatment for many conditions over many years. Studies coauthored by NIH have shown that IV Vitamin C given in the right amount can actually cause death to cancer cells. This is not a “one protocol fits all” situation. Different cancers may require different concentrations of the Vitamin C to cause this cancer cell death. Vitamin C is destructive to cancer cells by causing the release of hydrogen peroxide which kills cancer cells but doesn’t affect normal cells since they possess peroxidase which neutralizes the peroxide. It also effectively works to kill viruses and has been very successful in our hands in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia. Sadly, it is not reimbursable by insurance and there is no ICD9 code for it.
The first person to write a paper on IV Vitamin C was Dr. Klenner in North Carolina in 1949. He treated sixty consecutive patients with diagnosed polio with sixty consecutive cures. This was during a polio epidemic in his community. Not one person that he treated went on to develop bulbar polio or any serious polio problems. He actually treated them with 15,000 mg IV vitamin C in a single bolus dose and received this remarkable result. He published this in the Journal of the American Medical Association and presented it at the annual AMA meeting and it was uniformly ignored. Apparently the total focus was on developing a vaccination so getting a successful treatment was completely ignored.
Vitamin C has a number of other characteristics that make it useful, it is a mild chelator of toxic metals, and it’s certainly a “feel good” infusion in that patients generally feel much better. When used in conjunction with cancer therapy it limits the amount of side effects from the chemotherapy (although it is cancericidal by itself it has been used with chemotherapy in the NIH trials) and presented no problem to the chemotherapy approach.
