Cancer occurs when cells start to multiply and grow abnormally. Despite signals sent from the body to stop production, cancer cells reproduce rapidly and turn into a tumor or a lump. When cancer spreads to other parts of the body, metastasis has occurred.
What else is new?
At the University of Kansas City Cancer Center, Dr. Jeanne Drisko has teamed up with oncologist to study the effects of high dose vitamin C on cancer cells. In this study a patient with pancreatic cancer used high dose IV vitamin C therapy as the main mode of treatment and was able to survive for 4 years. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5882293/). More studies are warranted in this field to see the effectiveness of high dose vitamin C as a pro-oxidant rather than an anti-oxidant. Perhaps vitamin C can also be given at high doses in conjunction to chemotherapy to support and improve the quality of life in those with end stage cancer.
Dr. Lalezar uses the same protocol used at the Kansas City Cancer Center. This is not an FDA approved therapy and we do not claim or state that it can be used for treatment or cure of cancer. However with the approval of your oncologist we can use high dose IV vitamin C in conjunction to other treatments to support your body and help you with side effects of chemotherapy.
Before starting high dose Vitamin C therapy, G6 PD level is checked. G6PD is an enzyme necessary to process Vitamin C. If it’s abnormal one won’t be able to receive high dose vitamin C because hemolytic anemia may occur.
Vitamin C will be started at low doses and gradually increase in dose. Each infusion may take up to 2-3 hours and it’s given 2-3 times per week.
