Vitamin C – Intravenous, oral and topical use of Vitamin C is a great alternative in treating different forms of cancer.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C Therapy involves the administration of Vitamin C directly into the bloodstream. This delivery system is very powerful because it allows the plasma concentration of Vitamin C to reach levels high enough to kill cancer cells.
Oral administration of Liposomal Vitamin C is also capable of achieving high enough plasma levels of Vitamin C to kill cancer cells along with IV Vitamin C.
How Does IV Vitamin C Work?
Vitamin C at high blood concentrations does not work as an anti-oxidant but instead acts as a pro-oxidant. When given intravenously, Vitamin C in the blood has been shown to generate the production of hydrogen peroxide that directly kills cancer cells in the early stages of cancer.
Is IV Vitamin C Therapy Safe?
There are no significant adverse effects associated with high doses of intravenous vitamin C when properly administered, whether given as a sole therapy or in combination with chemotherapy or radiation. Some animals can feel nauseous and may vomit during treatment which is a common side effect of an infusion going too fast, our technicians will monitor the patient until an appropriate rate is achieved. Increased water intake is also very common, there is no need to be alarmed if your pet wants to drink more water after treatment.
