Most people have heard of acupuncture and moxibustion as holistic treatments, but few know about the effect of high doses of vitamin C. Vitamin C therapy is often used for those who don’t want to use traditional methods to fight cancer. Using a higher than normal dose of this power vitamin, many are able to combat their cancer and not have the terrible side effects that come along with chemotherapy. It is given through an IV because by giving it through this method, the higher levels of vitamin C are able to be maintained in the blood. Giving it by mouth is just not as effective. It’s been used since the 1970’s though some are just now hearing about it. It has been shown to slow the spread of many cancers, such as colon, pancreatic and liver cancer.
Vitamin C and Cancer Cells
Many studies have shown that by combining vitamin c and other therapies it can be successful. Unfortunately, using vitamin c and chemo together can make it ineffective. The vitamin C will counteract the chemo. Doing various studies on animals, it was proven that vitamin c can stop the tumors growth and keep the cells from progressing. The quality of life issue cannot be ignored either. Many patients treated with these methods show an improved quality of life and a reduction of pain. At The Center for Integrative Medicine, it is possible to get Vitamin C therapy, as well as many other types of holistic comforts. These methods are helping combat disease without destroying a person’s life in the process. What can vitamin C therapy do for you?
- Destroy Cancer Cells
- Provide A Better Quality of Life
- Ease Aches and Pains Associated with Cancer
- Provide a Treatment that Doesn’t Have Massive Side Effects
Why Choose Vitamin C over Traditional Methods
Traditional chemotherapy basically destroys all the cells in the body leaving the immune system compromised. Vitamin C doesn’t kill any cells so the good cells are still intact. Those who have no good cells have a weakened immune system that leaves them open for attack. There is no worry of this with Vitamin C and a person may be weak, but many show improvement with little to no side effects. The only complaint that was notated was a bit of an upset stomach or a headache in some patients, but the side effects were nothing like those with chemo. The vomiting and dizziness and diarrhea were not reported in Vitamin C IV therapy. The great thing about this treatment is that it can be combined with other Chinese herbal remedies to give a patient the relief they desire.
