Is anyone doing the IV vitamin C treatment? One does this twice weekly at saturation dose (about 50 gms). I intend to start this in February, but I would love to hear from your experiences. I know two people whom it has kept ovarian cancer at bay for 3-4 years and two people who have died (of lung cancer).

Carolyn, I'm surprised that in almost a year there have been no replies to your message. I'm brand new to this website and I'd love to know if you did begin the IV-C treatment and what your experience has been.

Karen, when I googled *IV Vitamin C* your message came up, so I joined the group. I'm interested in learning more about auto IV for nutrient intake. Maybe we can stir up some interest.

I would like to know if you have had this IV Vitamin C treatment for cancer or if you know anyone who is having it.

My wife Carolyn B. (diagnosed 6/2003, stage 3C) undertook a program of high dosages of vitamin C as a means of battling ovarian cancer over a number of months, starting in February 2005. We got prescriptions and support from an MD associated with an alternative care institution, and our regular oncologist was aware of this regimen. The IVC appeared to help strengthen her resistance, and seemed to improve her well-being. For a time we were hopeful that the IVC would have a lasting curative effect. There were signs initially that the IVC may have been diminishing tumor growth, and depressing CA125 levels. However over the long term I would have to say that IVC alone was not (in her case) totally effective. The CA125 levels came up again, and tumor growth resumed. She passed away in August 2005, 3 years and 2 months after her initial diagnosis. My personal thoughts (keep in mind I'm not an MD): * IVC may be totally effective for some patients but not for others. It may very well be worth trying. * IVC appears to be a useful adjunct in combination with conventional chemotherapies, improving well-being at the least, and possibly helping to build immunity. * IVC alone appears (to me) either to be limited in its anti-cancer strength, against OVCA--or alternatively, after being hit by IVC, OVCA strains may develop that are able to resist the IVC, just as what all too often happens with carboplatin, taxol, and the rest. * We still need a reliable means to diagnose OVCA early, and a cure. Good luck. Kerry B. --- Message edited by CancerCompass staff: for personal protection, email address removed.

Hi, I have started IV Vitamin C 6 weeks ago. 1 - 2 times per week. Find that my pain has reduced and I have more energy. Have not had results back from imaging. I would look forward to hear from others doing or had done treatment

For myself: I can say that Vitamin C IV works! In 1998, I was diagnosed with CLL - Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia -- and was told there was nothing to be done -- except to watch the white blood cells and then have chemotherapy when they got too high! I did not want to wait to be poisoned by chemo! So when I heard through a doctor my son in NY went to that I should find an oncologist who would give me Vitamin C IV ! Of course, the Mayo oncologist would look at me like I had two heads, so I found my holistic M.D. here in Jax. Beach, FL. I started C-IV one year ago (June 16th to be exact). My white blood count had been drifting UP steadily since 1998, but after NINE MONTHS of C-IV, my blood test revealed a drop of 8/10 of a point! Doesn't sound like much, but we're dealing with Cancer here! Anyway, I continue the IV, and I expect to continue getting better. This may be -- as "they say" -- anecdotal, but I'll take it! We need more publicity about this type of vitamin therapy -- which can't hurt -- and certainly doesn't poison like chemo! Hope this helps (By the way, there's a clinical trial at U. of Kansas -- which is underwritten by a FOUNDATION rather than a pharmaceutical company. Easy to find: Vitamin C - Univ of Kansas!)

Yes, I want to try again. Did it only for a very short time but I was dealing with a cancer husband who passed away. Now I believe I have found another doctor who does this but I really want to do this at home. Where can I get it already made? I have a port and believe I can do this. I'm doing alot already and just want to add this to my regiman. Denise

Hi Denise, I think you have to have at least your first dose in the hospital or doctor's office for safety reasons. You should involve your oncologist and provide him/her with information on IV Vitamin C that will support your decision. Recent studies have been done by Dr. Mark Levine of NIDDK on the effectiveness of IV Vitamin C and possible use as a cancer treatment. Phase 1 safety trials are going on now,Dr. Jeanne Drisko of Kansas University has recieved $375,000 for IV Vitamin C study on ovarian ca patients. Dr. Robert Cathcart has a website where he gives the recipe for IV Vitamin C. You can copy it and give it to your physician.I hope I have given you enough information.

My husband has CLL. The chemo caused a Squamous Cell cancer to grow in his ear and now "they" want to do a very radical operation which we do not feel he could survive. Neither does the pulmonary specialist. He just started IVC today and will receive it 3-4 times a week for a while. We also use the Rife Technology machine which cured a melanoma that he had 7 years ago. It doesn't appear to help with the CLL. He is also going to try Hydrogen Peroxide + DMSO IV this week. (His lungs are bad and Inf. Dis. Docs have been slamming him with antibiotics. (He got SUNOMONA infections in the hospital (SP?) Please keep us appraised as to your progress with the C. We are excited. For the first time today, he had energy and we felt hope.
