Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is usually naturally available in a number of fruits and vegetables like orange, grapefruit, lemon, and kiwi for example.
Vitamin C is also essential to the body and is used in tissue repair. It is also critical for the correct functioning of several enzymes and immune system.
It can have either a pro-oxidative or anti-oxidative effect on cells depending on the dosage given. When used as an anti-oxidative it has the ability to bind itself to free radicals, which are harmful molecules for the body, protecting us from its destructive effects. Many studies show that it has great potential as an anti-cancer treatment when used as a pro-oxidative drug.
Due to their general potential anti-cancer properties, high-dose Vitamin C can be used in a myriad of cancer treatments and can be considered almost as “natural chemotherapy”. When used at a lower dosage it has the capability of enhancing and boosting the immune system and fighting off undesired side effects from conventional therapies.
We have more than 15 years of experience with medium, high and mega-doses of Vitamin C. The treatment is well-tolerated. It can also be associated with standard treatments either to potentialized the anti-cancer effect or to boost the immune system and reduce possible side effects from chemo- and radiotherapy.
Finding the right dose for each cancer type needs a lot of experience and it is important to know that an anti-cancer effect of Vitamin C is only achievable in combination with other drugs and supplements.
We definitely recommend the use of high-dose Vitamin C for most types of cancer and we think that it is one of the pillars of alternative oncological care.
