To maintain health and for chronic illnesses, we use the standard dosage for vitamin C therapy as a proven antioxidant therapy for cell protection. We prefer the oral intake of vitamin C from natural sources (e.g. acerola cherry).
In cancer therapy, we can increase the dosage of vitamin C to such an extent that it has a pro-oxidative effect that has a damaging effect on cancer cells. Normal body cells can tolerate amounts in the range of approx. 40 g per infusion, but the uncontrolled and rapidly dividing cancer cells cannot. To strengthen their immune system, many people take vitamin C in powder or tablet form. However, there is a limit to the amount that can be fed into the body through the digestive tract.
Too high a dose of vitamin C is excreted by the kidneys,. If a higher dose of vitamins is required for therapeutic reasons, infusion therapy is mandatory. Here the vitamin C gets directly into the blood and does not have to be absorbed by the intestinal mucous membranes. In this way, people with a reduced ability of the intestine to absorb can also benefit from an infusion with vitamin C.
High-dose vitamin C therapy often is applied during our hyperthermia treatments. Additionally, there is a wide range of natural substances available such as alpha lipoic acid, hydroxycitrate, reishi mushrooms, aloe vera, special yogurts to stimulate the gut associated flora which will be decided upon the individual needs of every patient.
