Liposomal Vitamin C for Neuropathy

It’s both the lecithin and the ascorbic acid which are going to reduce the symptoms of neuropathy The Vitamin C will reduce the inflammation and repair the damage where it can (neuropathy has many and varied root causes). The lecithin component of the liposomal vitamin C contains choline a building block for our nerve cells. Choline protects the myelin sheath and maintains nerve function. For anyone undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy liposomal vitamin C is a sure way to to protect your healthy cells from the nerve damage these therapies can so often inflict.
Cancer alone is enough to deal with without adding neuropathy to the mix.
Here’s a great article that explains all the different types of neuropathy and the various symptoms. The author also lists conventional treatments, symptom management and suggested supplements. Lecithin is top of the list and the author suggests between 1.2 and 3.6 grams of lecithin powder each day.
So, 2 teaspoons of Life Energy C Liposomal Vitamin C each day is going to take care of this nerve maintenance requirement. It is safe to increase this amount to the level in which you feel a sense of increased brain focus and or alertness ( yes lecithin is great brain food). Friends who have suffered from neuropathy tell me they almost instant feel relief and increased clarity from just one tablespoon of life Energy C.

The #1 Stress Buster & Quitting Smoking Supplement.

Smoking cigarettes has become many people’s legal go-to-drug of choice when they need a quick stress buster.

Smoking a cigarette is well known way to self-administer a relaxing pick-me-up.

I guess we find it so difficult to quit smoking because of this very power it has,
to both stimulate and relax us at the same time.

What else is interesting is that high dose vitamin C also relaxes us, and picks us up – at the same time too.

Findings from this recent study suggests that high vitamin C status may be associated with improved overall mood in young adult males.

https://www.mdpi.com/2076-3921/7/7/91

And this interesting article from Psychology Today concludes that, “People who have high levels of vitamin C do not show the expected mental and physical signs of stress when subjected to acute psychological challenges”.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/articles/200304/vitamin-c-stress-buster

Caroline Cranshaw, the author of ‘The Smoking Cure’ says that

A) Smokers are found to have below average levels of Vitamin C.

B) A pack-a-day smokers levels of Vitamin C are as much as 40 percent lower then a non-smoker.

C) Smoking uses up around 25 milligrams of the vitamin C in your system, per cigarette.

D) Your body does not make vitamin C on its own, and our body does not store it either.

E) If we are depleting our body of Vitamin C it is therefor essential that we take supplemental Vitamin C, and eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin C.

Furthermore, she says that studies have shown that taking Vitamin C is as effective as taking a nicotine replacement drugs for cigarette cravings.

The Connection Between Collagen and VitaminC

So collagen is said to be the glue that holds our bodies together. Collagen keeps our ligaments moving smoothly and our skin and hair elastic and strong. It is needed to replace dead skin cells with new skin cells.
Collagen contributes to the formation of connective tissue and can seal and heal the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract.  Eating bone broths which are  high in collagen, is said to improve your collagen levels. We can also support our body to convert collagen to a usable protein by increasing our vitamin C intake. When we have adequate vitamin C levels the collagen we eat can be transformed into energy.

In this deep, yet super easy to follow article on collagen Dr. Josh Axe explains all things collagen and clearly states that “In order for collagen to be activated in the body, you always want to take your supplements with a source of amino acids and vitamin C

Another article of interest by W.J. McCormick, MD  which can be found at Selene River Press discusses the fact that “cancer tends to take root mainly in areas of the body that have become depleted in collagen—the elastic connective tissue responsible for “cementing” cells in their place. As collagen diminishes, he says, cancerous cells become free to exercise their natural “amoeboid activity” and move to other parts of the body (i.e., metastasize). Since the body requires vitamin C to produce collagen, Dr. McCormick argues, it stands to reason that a deficiency of  vitamin C enables the spread of cancer—a notion supported by the fact that cancer patients tend to be severely depleted in the nutrient.”

So when you tell your nurse or doctor that you are taking high dose vitamin C each day and the reply is “well at least you won’t catch a cold” don’t forget to tell them about how you are supporting yourself in so many more ways, inside and out.

My breast cancer nurse said the same to me recently, and it just showed me that the world really needs to get up to speed with the importance of increasing and maintaining high levels of vitamin C. She was right, I have not caught a cold or flu since I began taking it…and there is so many more benefits I’m enjoying that sadly many more cancer patients could be sharing in too.

My personal high dose vitamin C and cancer journey.

This photo of me was taken in Janurary 2018, shortly after I was given some very good news by my oncologist.

My own secondary ER+ breast cancer healing journey has led me to create this Liposomal Vitamin C information blog site.

High Dose Liposomal Vitamin C is providing me with increased energy and increased sense of well-being during my own healing journey. I hope my website inspires you to continue learning more about Liposomal C, and maybe even experience just how supportive it may be towards your own healing.

I was diagnosed with ER+ breast cancer in 2014 and metastatic breast cancer to the skeletal system in June 2017. I started on the high dose Vitamin C in August 2017. Many people have said to me since then, “Wow- but you’re looking so well”, and since taking high doses of liposomal vitamin C every day, I’ve never felt better in my life. There is so much more than meets the eye going on when you take high dose vitamin C in the form of liposomal vitamin C. It’s this ‘so much more than meets the eye’ part that has inspired me to create this blog-site.

High dose vitamin C is not the only therapy I’m on, but I’m sure the energy it provides me with is playing a huge role in my ability to be enjoy the cancer healing journey as much as I am.

Last week, ( Jan’ 2018) my oncologist confirmed that my tumor markers have dropped by half and are now down in the ‘normal’ person’s range and confirmed that my bone and CT scans show that my tumors themselves have stabilised.

I’m feeling so good that I am now making time each day to get out there and shout far and wide about Liposomal Vitamin C to anyone who may want to support their own healing and increase their energy levels.

Last August (2017) I was driving for an hour twice a week to get 3 hour long, intravenous vitamin C treatments for cancer at my GP’s clinic. These treatments were gifted to me by a very generous family, but not affordable for me long term, and therefor not viewed as a sustainable option for me. On top of that, the intravenous vitamin C needles were just  ‘not’ easy to administer each time, and after 5 weeks I had definitely had enough needles and too many exhausting intravenous C come-down moments, where my energy completely dropped away.

When looking at ways to support myself during the crash or come-down from the super high dose intravenous vitamin C infusions I began taking several brands of liposomal vitamin C which I was purchasing on i-herb. They all helped me stop the huge crashes of energy, feel better and maintain high levels of C in my blood between intravenous sessions.

However, I soon put on my reading glasses and saw the fine print of what I was taking and discovered that the Liv-on Brand of Liposomal Vitamin C (which appears as  everyone’s favorite)  is made on soy lecithin and contains 12% v/v alcohol. I personally, had to look into alternatives as both soy and alcohol are unfortunately not recommended for people diagnosed with ER+ breast cancer.

So, moving forward, I have created this blog site with easy links to to help others easily better understand high dose vitamin C.

Update: June 2018
It will be 12 months since my secondary breast cancer diagnosis next month, and by early July 2018 I will have discussed my next lot of blood tests, bone and CT scans with my oncologist. I look forward to sharing the test results with you in July 2018.

Update: Aug 2018
The latest CT scan showed ‘nothing’ apart from already seen and stabilised activity within the bones. The bone scan report showed no progression. My breast cancer tumor markers dropped even further. I was already back in the ‘normal’ range, now I must be in the super healthy person range for sure because I’m feeling amazing!
After the above mentioned results came in, I went for an ultrasound to examine areas on my chest wall, armpits and right breast where active lobular carcinoma tumors were confirmed via biopsy last June. There was nothing there. Yes, these three confirmed tumors that originally led me to CT, PET and bone scans and the diagnosis of secondary cancer throughout my skeletal system, have now completely vanished. How exciting! Could the same be happening throughout my body. I believe it is.

Update: Nov 2018
My breast cancer tumor markers have dropped even further. I’m feeling magnificent and I will be getting an MRI of my spine next month to see how my Lumbar region is looking.
I’m not taking as much vitamin C as I once was. I am currently taking 5 grams of vitamin C a day. This is  in one 25ml dose of Life Energy C, from a shot glass, on an empty stomach – in the afternoon/evening/before my dinner.

Update: May 2019

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.

The quotes below are copied directly from the United States Government’s Cancer.gov website

“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.

What does the United States Cancer Institute have to say about high dose Vitamin C in relation to Cancer?

Researchers are not as up to date as they need to be in regards to the latest form of high dose vitamin C; liposomal vitamin C, which is also taken orally, but is not absorbed the same way as an oral or powdered vitamin C. Oral vitamin C is referred to in the current day research in a less positive light than intravenous vitamin C because it is not able to be absorbed into our cells in high doses.
Liposomal vitamin C is different than oral vitamin C referred to in the studies because it bi-passes most of the gastrointestinal system, and enters the cells directly via the phospholipids in which it is encapsulated. Liposomal vitamin C therefor it is most similar to intravenous vitamin C.

So when reading articles on vitamin C studies remember not to confuse liposomal vitamin C with oral vitamin C studies and think of it more like a less invasive safer form of  intravenous vitamin C that it is possible to take in equally high doses, in the comfort of your home, without upsetting the digestive system.

A Personal Cancer Story
“I used high dose vitamin C therapy in conjunction with radiation to a tumor on my spine and continue to use the high dose vitamin C every day. At my oncologist meeting in Jan 2018, my oncologist agreed that the images from my last CT and bone scans showed not only stability but signs of ‘contrast filling in’ and that this could indicate that healing was taking place on my spine. She also told me that my blood tests showed that my breast cancer tumour markers were in the normal persons range. I refer to my high dose vitamin C intake as my DIY immune therapy and it is one of a handful of therapies I am doing.
I have started a page within this blog where I will post articles which specifically relate to high dose vitamin C and its compatibility with chemotherapy and radiation.

Killing cancer with vitamin C: Hype or hope?

Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, and in the addition of the protective myelin coat to nerve cells in the brain’s white matter. In addition, it is known to have strong antioxidant properties, protecting cells from oxidative damage.
