High dose vitamin C is used to treat many different conditions in our clinic. It was first introduced into wide spread use in the 1970’s by Linus Pauling, PhD. At first, he was laughed at by the medical establishment but subsequent studies have proven its value in addressing a broad range of disease conditions.
Besides having a direct killing effect on invading organisms and cancer cells, there is solid evidence that this vitamin is essential for peak functioning of the immune system.
It is an excellent non-toxic way to deal with the “Flu Season”. It is also a very important part of our protocol to treat other viral diseases such as hepatitis and shingles. It has been found to stabilize the normal state of cells by reducing virus production and promoting synthesis of various proteins.
Well known for its' anti-oxidant powers, Vitamin C defends the cell against high levels of harmful free radicals produced by chemicals, radiation & metabolic stress to name a few.
Vitamin C under a microscope
A treatment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 5 hours, depending on the dosage. This therapy is given intravenously in ranges from 30 grams to over 200 grams. Research has shown that in order for Vitamin C to be physiologically more available, intravenous as apposed to oral is 7 times more effective. IV infusion allows for a dose 20 times higher than could be tolerated orally to be administered to the patient.
It is at this high level that Vitamin C is toxic to cancer cells but not to normal cells.
This therapy does not have to be only for people with chronic disease, it can help to keep the body regulated and performing at a higher level of efficiency. Regular maintenance is well advised.
