High dose vitamin c therapy for cancer is the perfect alternative therapy to conventional chemotherapy.
How effective is high dose Vitamin C therapy for cancer? A series of studies conducted and produced by the National Institute of Health, the FDA and the National Cancer Institute from 2004 to approximately 2009 showing intravenous high dose vitamin c therapy is very effective in the fight against cancer.
If vitamin C was not present in our diet we would end up with a deficiency condition called scurvy.
Collagen production is not possible with having vitamin c present. We obtain the suppleness to our skin from collagen production and without it gum tissues would certainly bleed and our skin would start to droop.
Different plant foods and also a variety of fruits contain the essential vitamin c. Oranges, lemons and also limes are great carriers of natural vitamin c.
When it comes to anti-oxidants, vitamin c is an important one. What an antioxidant or “reducing agent” as it’s labeled in clinical terms does is donate electrons. The job of an anti-oxidant is to donate an electron wherever there may be a lack of them. The opposite from an anti-oxidant is a free radical and they cause damage. Free radicals are atoms that have a shortage of electrons.
Free radicals travel through the body trying to find an electron and while doing so they inflict some damage. They create openings in membrane layers and also could trigger mutations. A free radical is provided an electron that it is craving for an anti-oxidant and damage is minimized or neutralized.

What we have found out through research is that high dosages of intravenous vitamin c have the ability to promptly contribute electrons to free radicals. When vitamin c encounters iron or copper in the body it produces what is called the Fenton reaction. Iron and copper are two common minerals we all have. The Fenton reaction helps to oxidize contaminants.
Hydrogen peroxide is produced when vitamin c donates to iron. When cancer cells no longer use oxygen they stop producing antioxidant enzymes. This process will actually modify their genetic expression.
What this tells us is that catalase is not present in cancer cells. Here’s the magical part; when cancer cells come face to face with a peroxide as a result of the cells no longer having catalase to neutralize it, those cancer cells die. Healthy cells do neutralize it as a result of having catalase and convert the peroxide into oxygen and water which is beneficial for the cells.
The wonderful part of administering intravenous high dose vitamin c therapy is the cancer cells end up dying off as a result of the metabolic challenge it faced. And the healthy cells are able to use it to their benefit where absolutely no damage is done.
This is a proven therapy which works naturally with our bodies and provides great assistance when people are going through the process of healing from cancer.
