IV Vitamin C in Edmonton
We offer Vitamin C IV Therapy.
IV Vitamin C has a wealth of data supporting its use in a wide range of health conditions.
For immunity IV Vitamin C is often given with Zinc, Selenium, and Hydrochloric Acid.
For cosmetics, Vitamin C is usually given back to back with Glutathione.
With cancer, IV Vitamin C is usually given with supportive minerals in dramatic doses.
Human data exists in these cancers specifically.
IV Vitamin C dosing varies widely, usually between 5 grams and 125 grams.
Doses for Cancer are typically 50-125 grams of IVC.
Intravenous vitamin C can reach concentrations up to 30 to 70 times higher.
IV Vitamin C
IVC bypasses intestinal absorption and the saturation of transport mechanisms.
Administration of 1.25g IV reached 885 micromoles/L in the blood versus 135 orally.
The following examples simply illustrate the role of IV Vitamin C in infections.
The regular medical community is making strides in accepting this as a therapy.
IVC and Sepsis: IVC reduces hospital deaths among patients with sepsis.
One study with more than 160 ICU patients with sepsis-induced respiratory failure.
50 mg/kg of IV Vitamin C every six hours was given for 4 days.
28 days later - 46 percent of the patients in the placebo group died.
Compared to less than 30 percent in the IV vitamin C-treated group.
Another study looked at 47 sepsis patients with 24g IVC per day for four days.
About 40 percent of the patients in the control group died.
Only 8 percent of the patients in the IVC group died.
Viral Myocarditis: An analysis looked at data with more than 420 children.
Overall, standard therapy with IV vitamin C decreased all cardiac related enzymes.
COVID-19: Interestingly, data emerged from China in March of 2019 regarding IVC.
One group treated ~50 cases of moderate to severe Covid-19 with high dose IVC.
Ill patients who received IV Vitamin C improved and there was no mortality.
Herpes Zoster (shingles): In a study of 41 patients with postherpetic neuralgia.
Three infusions of 2.5 grams of IV vitamin C or a placebo over a period of five days.
Those IVC reported having less spontaneous postherpetic neuralgia pain.
Reperfusion injury: One study where one group received 3 grams of IV vitamin C.
Treatment was given within six hours of coronary intervention.
Markers of heart injury were decreased in the IVC group, compared to the controls.
In 2018, a review by Bazzan looked at 86 cancer patients received doses of IVC.
Doses ranging from 50g to 150g over a 7-year period.
32 patients received only IV Vitamin C for cancer management.
54 patients received IV Vitamin C concurrently with chemotherapy.
Improvements in fatigue, pain, and mood with IV Vitamin C were reported.
Another 2018 review by Nauman looked at 385 cancer patients in 23 trials using IVC.
IVC was safe in nearly all patient populations, alone and in combination with chemotherapies.
IV Vitamin C Safety
IV Vitamin C has been administered in doses as high as 200 g without consequence.
A study at McGill found no toxicity at doses of up to 125g of IV Vitamin C.
Up to 1500mg/kg three times weekly for cancer has been tolerated and considered safe.
Prior to treatment with high doses (>30g), we run a test called a G6PD Screen.
We also do measurements of renal function.
Vitamin C levels from IV infusion are cytotoxic to select cancer cell lines.
IV Vitamin C Dosing
For Cancer we often administer up to 1.5 g/kg up to three times weekly.
This dose appears to be safe and free of toxicity
This dosing sustains plasma ascorbic acid concentrations >10 mmol/l for >4 h.
Cell death occurs in many cancer cell lines exposed to concentrations >5 mmol/l for <1 h.
For infections, immunity and longevity we usually dose IVC between 5 to 35 grams.
IV Vitamin C and Infections
We use low dose IV Vitamin C (5-15 grams) primarily for acute infections like colds and flus.
Chronic infections may require doses between 15 and 35 grams (moderate dose IVC).
Patients from the Riordan Clinic with EBV showed a reduction in antibody levels with IVC.
IV Vitamin C and Hyperbaric Oxygen
The level of tissue oxygenation is an important factor in the anticancer activity of IVC.
The presence of sufficient oxygen is a requisite for production of hydrogen peroxide.
To increase its effectiveness...to increase the formation of hydrogen peroxide.
Dominic P. D’Agostino is a researcher that has published a lot of data on keto diets.
He conducted experiments with his group with regards to IV Vitamin C and HBO.
• Low dose Vitamin C (under 25 grams) pair with HBOT from 1.3 to 2.5 ATA
• High dose strategies (over 25 grams) should be paired with 1.3 to 1.5 ATA.
