High Dose Vitamin C use with Chemotherapy and Radiation

This page is where I will collect and re-post articles and interviews in which the combination of high dose vitamin C with chemotherapy and/or radiation is discussed.

Board-certified oncologist Victor Marcial-Vega, M.D. explains high-dose vitamin C therapy in detail including his protocols.


I believe this article by Dr. Ray Stand is an interesting read, for anyone diagnosed with cancer who is deciding if they really should refrain from high dose vitamin C and other antioxidants during  chemotherapy or radiation. It’s food for thought.

“In a 2014 study of 27 patients with advanced ovarian cancer, chemotherapy alone was compared with chemotherapy and IV vitamin C. IV vitamin C was given during chemotherapy and for 6 months after chemotherapy ended. Patients who received IV vitamin C had fewer side effects from the chemotherapy.”

“Patients with non-small cell lung cancer or glioblastoma multiforme in two pilot trials were given standard therapy plus IV vitamin C. Patients had better overall survival and fewer side effects compared to the control groups.”

This podcast interview with American integrative cancer care specialist Paul Anderson covers many things quiet fast, so set yourself up with a pen and paper if you are looking for some valuable wide ranging integrative oncology support tips. He talks about patients successfully integrating high dose vitamin C into their chemotherapy treatments.

Dr. Anderson compiled reviewed 30 pages of data summary in which high dose vitamin C was used alongside chemotherapy, and found that only in two cases there was a problem, which could be corrected easily  (by separating the high dose vitamin C treatment from the chemotherpy in time dosage frame). He even says that you could provide the same support by loading up on liposomal vitamin C the days leading up to and after chemotherapy.

Below are simply my own thoughts.
I think the reasons liposomal vitamin C helps so many people feel a lot better during and after chemo and radiation is because of its  immune boosting, energy raising, protective, anti-infammatory qualities and its abilty to gently and effeciently remove toxins from the liver.

Unlike chemotherpay drugs ascorbic acid is non-toxic in high doses and greatly protects our healthy cells from the toxicity of chemo and radiation.

In this online article by Dr. Jockers he explains Liposomal vitamin C in easy-to-read terms, and in much more depth.

 

Dr. Jockers also shares his Liposomal Vitamin C dosage recommendations:
