Intravenous vitamins

High-dose vitamin C fights cancer

Intravenous administration of high-dose vitamin C is a treatment method that may damage cancer cells, according to studies performed at the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the United States, as well as in many additional clinical trials.

This is how vitamin C acts against cancer

Vitamin C acts against cancer by taking advantage of the difference between normal cells and cancer cells. The normal cells function in an oxygen-rich environment as opposed to the cancer cells, which function and prosper in an environment that is low in oxygen and rich in glucose. Vitamin C resembles glucose in its molecular structure, and therefore when encountering a cancer cell, it is able to deceive it, penetrate it, and then destroy it.

High-dosage vitamin C creates hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) – a free radical that can harm the cells. This radical is neutralized by the catalase enzyme, which is found in healthy cells but not in cancerous cells. This way, the cancer cell is damaged when meeting high-dosage vitamin C. Treatment is selective and damages cancer cells only, without harming normal cells.

Intravenous vitamin treatment at New-Hope Medical Center

New-Hope Medical Center provides high-dosage intravenous vitamin C treatments. In addition to vitamin C, the infusion contains a large number of additional vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies and other substances according to a formula tailored for each patient.

Vitamin C in high-dose treatment is only efficient intravenously. If consumed orally (swallowing pills), most of it would be lost in the stomach and only a small part would reach the blood system and the cells. Therefore, high-dosage vitamin C capsules are not effective for treating cancer. In addition, oral dose of Vitamin C above 10 grams will cause severe diarrhea.

Beyond the direct impact on the cancer, these intravenous treatments may improve the patient’s general condition and act to improve the functioning of the immune system against cancer cells.

The intravenous treatment does not have any side effects or cause any damage.
