Intravenous Vitamin C

Incredible power without toxicity

What is vitamin C?

Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling extolled the virtues of vitamin C, a.k.a., ascorbic acid.  While ascorbic acid is considered a vitamin required for survival, humans are unable to synthesize it naturally, so therefore it must be obtained from the diet or supplementation.  Vitamin C is a water soluble anti-oxidant that works as a free radical scavenger and supports healthy functioning of the immune system.  Vitamin C also plays a big role in collagen production.

Why use megadoses?

Large doses of intravenous vitamin C can support the immune system to help fight infections, reduce the severity of allergies and deter cancer.  It is like giving the immune system “premium gasoline” to do its job well.

The anti-cancer activity of vitamin C makes this a non-toxic, targeted treatment that is not hazardous to healthy tissue.  Vitamin C is also indicated in cases of tissue trauma (post-surgery) and degenerative disease (osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease) because it is required for collagen formation.  Furthermore, vitamin C is a chelator, meaning it helps a body detox from heavy metals.

Why take vitamin C intravenously instead of orally?

Large doses of vitamin C taken orally may cause diarrhea.  Intravenous administration avoids this gastrointestinal side effect and allows for very high doses to be well tolerated.

How much vitamin C are we talking about?

Standardly, 25 to 50 grams may be administered in a carrier fluid and infused over one to three hours.  The client sits comfortably in a recliner for the duration of the infusion.  The number of treatments depends on the client’s condition, the severity of the symptoms, and the response to treatment.

How do I optimize the program?

Many people who undergo intravenous vitamin C therapy also have a supplement regimen, exercise regularly and modify their diets.  It makes sense to modify lifestyle to optimize health on as many levels as possible.

Intravenous vitamin C makes sense for the following:

  • adrenal fatigue
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • autoimmune disease
  • cancer
  • cardiovascular disease
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • chronic pain
  • degenerative joint disease
  • fibromyalgia
  • hair loss
  • heavy metal elevations
  • mononucleosis
  • post surgical healing
  • shingles (herpes zoster)
  • skin infections
  • upper respiratory tract infections
  • urinary tract infections
  • varicose veins
  • and more.
