A sufficient supply of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is essential for a healthy body. And this for good reason: vitamin C protects the body from free radical cells (enhanced cell protection), reinforces the immune system and enhances the ingestion of iron coming from our nutrition. But this is not all, as scientists have discovered in the meantime. Vitamin C also has a beneficial impact in protecting our body from cancer cells.
A considerable part of the beneficial action of vitamin C is its ability to catch free radical cells. Free radical cells are very aggressive and ready to react. They originate in the human metabolic process or through chemical substances, respectively radiation, which the body is exposed to. Is the creation of free radical cells conditioned through stress, smoking or environmental conditions they can create great damage to the human body. They destroy the cell membranes, the DNA sequence of a cell and alter the protein compound, all of which can lead to severe diseases such as cancer. Clinical studies have shown that vitamin C can stop the degeneration of cells into cancer cells and their spreading (metastatic spread). This is due to the fact, that vitamin C reinforces the cellular immune defence system through the activation of the lymphocytes and the macrophages, and encourages the hormonal defence system of our body to increase its concentration of immune globulins. At the same time, it seems that vitamin C has a direct affect on cancer-causing substances in deactivating them or protecting the DNA structure of the cell nucleus.
Clinical experience has shown that high-dosage vitamin C is particularly inhibiting cancer cells from growth and is very effective. The so-called high dose vitamin C therapy (starting at 25 gr) is directly administered into the bloodstream through an infusion. This leads to the creation of cytotoxic hydrogen peroxide, which inhibits the growth of cancer cells and metastasis. Healthy cells are not damaged in the process. When cancer is present, vitamin C can enhance the efficiency of chemotherapy and protect healthy cells from radiation.
The center for hyperthermia in Hannover uses the high dose vitamin C therapy for many years now. We have made very good experiences with this therapy in combination with all forms of hyperthermia therapy. The high dose vitamin C therapy has no negative side effects and is a soft version of cancer treatment.
