How much and what form do I take?
Vitamin C use in alternative cancer treatment
How vitamin C destroys cancer
Vitamin C is essential for humans and scientists in New Zealand have proven with hard evidence that vitamin C can curb the growth of cancer cells making the connection between vitamin C as a potent cancer killer.
Cancer cells do not have the required enzyme catalase that breaks down hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water and oxygen. Vitamin C requires catalase to break down inside the cell and vitamin C tricks cancer cells into thinking that it is sugar. Cancer cells thrive on sugar, so the cancer cells sucks up the vitamin C, culminating in the destruction of the tumor from the inside out by the resulting H2O2 from the vitamin C.
Yet back in the good ole USA, the FDA halted a vitamin C cancer study not to long ago “pending a determination as to the off-label status of intravenous ascorbic acid”. But that wasn’t enough as they further attempted to ban all production of IV ascorbic acid for the use of cancer treatment. Same story looking back to 1753 when James Lind showed how to prevent and cure scurvy, with citrus fruits containing vitamin C. Unfortunately, 100,000 British Navy sailors died of scurvy until all the old “experts” had died off and were replaced by new-thinkers.
New ideas, even lifesaving ones are typically ignored by the resident experts even after the ideas are proven correct.
What is vitamin C
Ascorbic Acid, AKA vitamin C, is a water-soluble vitamin known for boosting the immune system. But vitamin C is also an antioxidant that has been linked to younger-looking skin, contributes to the health of teeth & gums, is required for production of collagen and enhances the absorption of iron, B-12, Folic Acid, B-6 and vitamin E. A mere 100 mg a day of vitamin C given to an infant can even prevent SIDS! (Not one baby in over 20 years, given “Klenner’s/Kalokerinos Ascorbate Therapy” is known to have died.)
In its early stages vitamin C deficiency may lead to bleeding gums and slow healing of wounds.
How much vitamin C do we need?
From the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Vitamin C supplements lower high blood pressure! Studies in 29 trials over an 8 week duration now prove that increased vitamin C intake is associated with lower BP readings – with a median dose of just 500 mg. Lead study author, Dr. Peter R. Miller commented “Our research suggests a modest blood pressure lowering effect with vitamin C supplementation.” In these studies, patients with hypertension had a drop of about 5 in diastolic and systolic pressure.
Another recent study shows that vitamin C helps fight off the common cold. In this study, vitamin C literally halved the occurrence of colds in the study participants. Vitamin C is especially critical for people under heavy physical stress as the adrenal glands require vitamin C to function. Just 1 gram of vitamin C per day also reduces the average duration of colds that adults get by 8% and in colds that children get by 18%.
Man does not make his own vitamin C and the RDA for an adult male is a meager 95 mg of vitamin C a day. That is insanely low when you consider that a 150 pound healthy mammal producing their own vitamin C will make up to 14,000 mg per day.
Vitamin C cancer battle
In a cancer battle the amount of oral vitamin C that is needed can be extreme. When the upper limit is reached it is accompanied by gas, bloating or loose stools. However, when vitamin C is given at a dosage below bowel tolerance, in a few days it can generally be brought up to a higher dose. Using bowel tolerance, start with 1,000 mg of vitamin C taken with each meal. A few days later, add 1,000 mg more to one meal making it 2,000 mg at one meal and 1,000 mg at the others. A few days later add an additional 1,000 mg to yet another meal and so on. Slow down on adding more vitamin C if you have gas, bloating or loose stools.
What kind of vitamin C should I take?
98% or more of our vitamin C comes from China and is made with GMO corn. Find a non-corn, non-GMO source for your daily supplement – like Twin Labs Allergy C. Start with 1,500 mg per meal and build up from there using bowel tolerance for your benchmark.
For high doses of oral supplement of vitamin C avoid the sodium and calcium C forms. Instead, look for ascorbic acid with rose hips or just plain ascorbic acid. Keep in mind that 90% of all the vitamin C now on the market in the USA is manufactured in China using GMO corn. Only buy corn free vitamin C to avoid GMO based vitamin C. For IV treatment you will need to find a naturopathic doctor in a state that allows IV vitamin C to be administered for cancer treatments.
