IV Vitamin C and Cancer

IV Vitamin C and Cancer


Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Petteruti with Intellectual
Medicine. Today’s topic is Intravenous vitamin C with
regard to its application in the setting of supporting caner. Many patients suffer with cancer and go through
orthodox treatment with chemotherapy as they should and must. Chemotherapy targets killing cancer cells. We know there’s more to it however then just
torching cancer cells. Back in the 1980’s it was Dr. Linus Pauling
and his colleague Dr. Cameron who first used intravenous vitamin C to support patients
going through cancer. Now Dr. Pauling had the theory based upon
his observation that scurvy behaves a bit like dance, that vitamin C cures scurvy might
be helpful in cancer. Like cancer, scurvy eats through organs and
breaks down collagen as it does so. He therefor put forth his theory and applied
it towards patients being treated for cancer. He noted that they seem to live longer when
given intravenous vitamin C. Subsequent to that the Mayo Clinic did a study looking at
vitamin C and cancer and found no benefit. However, they used oral supplements. We now know the oral supplements do not achieve
the high blood levels that seem to be necessary to gain the benefit. Complementary alternative medical practitioner,
like those at Intellectual Medicine, have continued to apply intravenous vitamin C for
its supportive benefit in the face of patients fighting cancer. At high dose vitamin C it is pro oxidative,
it overwhelms cancer cells which have a limited capacity to metabolize, the hydrogen peroxide
that the vitamin C creates. Normal cells normalize the hydrogen peroxide
rather easily. What you have then is a cellular effect that
is toxic to cancer cells but healthy for normal cells. This is very exciting because it has the ability
to support and potentially enhance the effect of orthodox chemotherapy. In addition when used on an on-going basis,
intermittently, it may help to forestal relapse of the disease. Now these statements are not FDA approved. Vitamin C is not approved for the treatment
of any cancer but the theory and research is growing and certainly worth your time to
reflect upon. Lots more to this topic. You can go to our website to learn more www.im-120.com,
or can google it yourself. I’m Dr. Steve Petteruti from Intellectual
Medicine, thanks for listening.
