Can Vitamin C IV Heal Cancer?

Vitamin C IV

In our age of super-technology and medical “breakthroughs,” we sometimes lose sight of the amazing power of the simplest substances.

Yet it is often those simple things that can be the catalysts for the most significant healing. Eating more organic greens, moving our bodies, and healing emotional traumas are examples.

And so is Vitamin C.

If you are like most people, when you were growing up, you were probably told to drink more orange juice whenever you had the sniffles.

Well, this advice wasn’t far off base.  Researchers are now discovering that Vitamin C, especially found in citrus and green, leafy vegetables, can do a LOT more than merely clear up a cold.

The term “Vitamin C,” in our case, is shorthand for the substance ascorbic acid. C is an organic compound that is essential for the immune system and cardiovascular health. Since the human body cannot make it, Vitamin C must come externally from the foods we eat.

Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant. When ascorbic acid encounters a cancerous cell, it immediately triggers an attack response that kills that cell through oxidation.

New research is discovering that vitamin C kills cancer cells in a slightly different way than previously thought, however. Vitamin C appears to be the “quick-change” artist of the antioxidant world. According to the research, Vitamin C converts itself into DHA, or dehydroascorbic acid, when it discovers a malignant cell. Disguised as such, it is “accepted” into the inner part of the cancer cell.

Once inside the cancer cell, Vitamin C turns itself back into ascorbic acid, causing rapid apoptosis or cancer cell death!  

Absorption is a Key Factor

Why ingest Vitamin C intravenously? Why not simply eat pounds of citrus or high doses of powdered vitamin C?

According to a December 2015 study conducted by Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, it takes the equivalent of about 300 oranges to trigger Vitamin C’s Trojan-horse response that can kill cancer. The study focused on ascorbic acid’s effect on KRAS and BRAF gene mutations that are commonly found in colorectal cancer.

Of course, it is physically impossible to eat that many oranges every day. But even if you could accomplish this Herculean act, it wouldn’t do your body any good anyway when it came to fighting cancer. This is because the human body can only assimilate a certain amount of this nutrient. If you consume more than it can handle, it will simply pass right through you and instigate loose stools.

Linus Pauling, winner of the Nobel Prize and the Peace Prize, was one of the first to discover the power of the intravenous use of Vitamin C for healing cancer and other degenerative diseases. He and his colleagues administered Vitamin C IVs to over 1,000 patients with incredible results.

There are several reasons why intravenous Vitamin C is so effective for healing cancer:

1.) Intravenous ingestion bypasses digestive buffers that exist in the gut and intestines.

2.) Pure Vitamin C in the bloodstream encourages the production of hydrogen peroxide within body tissues; this is called “peroxide-mediated vitamin C” which, together with white blood cells, can directly target and eradicate cancer cells wherever they may be hiding.

3.) Low blood plasma levels of Vitamin C have been found in Stage 3 and 4 Breast Cancer patients, indicating that checking on Vitamin C levels in the blood may be an indication of prognosis. Increase your Vitamin C levels and you may improve your prognosis. 

4.) It helps to recycle glutathione – the most potent and powerful primary antioxidant that your cells naturally produce. 

5.) Nutraceuticals, including Vitamin C have been found to increase Natural Killer Cell function. 

Still Take Your C’s!

Eating foods that are high in Vitamin C, such as organic leafy greens and citrus (especially citrus zest), should continue to be a part of your overall healthy breast protocol. Supplementation with quality liposomal Vitamin C ensures better absorption of the Vitamin C into your cells. Why liposomal?  Liposomes are extremely small substances that bypass all digestive issues associated with high-dose ascorbic acid. The liposomal ends up in your bloodstream unscathed and can then be readily absorbed into your cells.

However, if you are faced with a cancer diagnosis or other serious condition, consider a Vitamin C IV. A qualified healthcare professional can administer the IV and will take a blood sample to determine what dosage is best for you to begin with. Doses will often be adjusted as time goes on. Experts say that the body can usually tolerate up to 100 grams of intravenous Vitamin C per IV.

Intravenous Vitamin C for cancer is safe and has proven time and again that it works. It should be considered as a serious option on your healing or even preventive journey with breast cancer.


    • Hello Dee! The length of your infusions would be determined by your naturopath or coach that is working and monitoring your progress closely. Many women alternate infusions by doing them for a few days per week for one full month and then skipping a month. A naturopath or coach could also help you decide if this is what is best for you.
