Vitamin c iv For Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

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! THANKS AGAIN - to you and Marie McCullough! Let's have more publicity on alternative therapies! (By the way, I've switched to alternatives for cholesterol, and after 3 months, my cholesterol was still under 200! I'm hoping this will continue so I don't have to go back on Lescol! )

I have a wonderful oncologist who is very open to Vitamin C IV and I agreed to take it. I am very much into nutritional supplements and oral Vitamin C anyway. He started me with 15,000 mg and we will build up to 50,000 mg. Can you tell me the protocol used by your physician? How many times a week and the dosage. Do you take vitamin C orally with it also? And how much do you pay for each infusion? Thanks..

I too would like to know about your dosage and cost of vit. c iv as I will be starting it in six weeks when I am through with radiation. I told my doctor I wouldn't take chemotherapy but would do radiation and hormone therapy. I am also using mangosteen and barley green and artemisinin.

I have been taking Vitamin C IV once a week. My cost is $148.00 for the treatment which if paid by insurance would be considered quite reasonable. Usually, from my information, Vitamin C IV can be given 2-3 times a week but I just can't afford it. The Center for Human Improvement in Wichita Kansas was very helpful. My oncologist has researched this treatment and so have I. I contacted the Center for information and they were happy to give both of us information about protocol. I suppose I have been taking it since the beginning of August and my tumor markers have gone down. I don't know if it is because of the Vitamin C IV but I will continue taking it. I started with 20,000 mg on first infusion and he increased it 5,000 mg.I believe he increased the dosage 5,000 mg. nearly every two weeks. I am up to 45,000 mg now. It is diluted with saline water and I will be infused for two hours next time. I will stay at 50,000 mg consistently when I reach that amount which should be after my next treatment. I take 5 to 6,000 mg orally a day in between treatments which has been suggested by the articles I have read. There is a certain percentage of saturation of tissues that can be measured by a certain machine which needs to be reached. However, he doesn't have that machine yet but intends to get it. Good luck with your treatment and hope this helped.. I did start my Vitamin C treatment just before I ended my chemotherapy treatment. I probably would have taken it with my chemo treatment if I had realized it sooner. But not sure if it would have been recommended to do so.

Susha, I am also taking artemisinin (wormwood) which when taken with Vitamin c can kill cancer cells. If you go to the following web site you can read the Thownsend report all about it. --- Message edited by CancerCompass staff: for personal protection, url removed. Please review CancerCompass Member Guidelines at http://www.cancercompass.com/common/guidelines.html ---- There is also a supplement being used in hospitals in Japan called AHCC, which is a combination of different mushrooms and it stimulates the priduction of NK cells, killer T-cells and cytokines. You can find out about it at the following web site. --- Message edited by CancerCompass staff: for personal protection, url removed.

I also take Barley Life and mangosteen and will continue to look for any other alturnative to chemotherapy. I believe in building up my body to fight cancer, not distroying my immune system to do it. God bless you, you are in my prayers, Jackie

Thanks For The Info

Please let me know how you do...I will check wormwood..never heard of it...I take lots of stuff and will continue to take Vitamin C IV. How much will it cost you? They say the protocol is really better twice a week but I can't afford twice a week.

Susha, I'm not sure what my dose will be or how often I will take it, but if I do an iv push it will cost $60. and if I do the iv drip it will cost $85.00. There is also something called modified citrus pectin that men take for prostate cancer. It is supposed to stop the cancer cells from being able to stick together. I have a girlfriend who was using it when she was trying to shrink her breast tumor rather than have it removed. She has since had the tumor removed and it was smaller so she is still on the pectin. You can find it by going to --- Message edited by CancerCompass staff: for personal protection, url removed. Please review CancerCompass Member Guidelines at http://www.cancercompass.com/common/guidelines.html ---- I buy my supplements from Swanson Health Products on the internet and they are considerably cheaper than getting them from my doctor and they are the same supplements. Let me know what other things you are taking, maybe between the two of us we can cure ourselves.

How Come it is so Reasonable?

I am surprised at the cost of the Vitamin C IV. I dont' know the difference between a push or a drip but I read that the drip is the way to go ...not the push. I am paying twice the cost. We have different concerns...Ihave had ovarian and breast cancer supposedly from the same gene...so it may be different in supplements. Of course, I always recommend making your own vegetable juice...carrots, beets, parsley, kale, collard greens or other greens. I also take COQ10 - 200 mg, vitamin B, vitamin E -400-800 IU, grapeseed extract, alpha lipoic acid, started chlorella recently, selenium, sylmarian for the liver, acidopholus (twice a day),calcium (bone restore)and of course Vitamin C (about 5-6,000 mg a day). HOw much is your dr. intending to give you on the Vit. C IV? I started with 20,000 mg. and how many times a week are you going to be getting it?

Hi I notice that many people are using the IV SA (Vitamin C) 50 grams twice a week. This dose did not work for me. My tumour marker increased in fact, it doubled in three weeks and another tumour started to protude through my abdominal wall. I increased my dose to 100 grams daily then 125grams every third day. I started the IV SA the first week of July 2006 and by mid October 2006 my scan was completely clear. One tumour on the pelvic wall had disappeared and substantial tumours on the colon had vanished but the small tumour on my abdominal wall is still here but it has almost gone. My husband is a doctor and we decided to increase to 200grams daily if need be because my ovarian cancer is so aggressive and I was going down hill very quickly. I had got to the stage where I was sleeping all day and had recurrent intestinal blockages. My fentanyl dose was 125 daily with extra morphine. I had been in a hospice and hosptial for seven months.Now I take no painkillers at all and I can shop and drive again. More importantly, I can look after my four children : 24,22,20 and 4 years old. We did the IVSA every night in our bedroom using a very fast drip to get the high saturation levels that are needed. A slow drip did not work for me. 100grams over 2 1/2 hours. With r-ala and K2 and K1. The cost was about $1600 monthly due to the cost of the drip equipment and solutions but then again if someone had told me that if I was to pay $5000 and get well I would have thought the price was cheap!! If the 50grams does not work and I know a few people that have not responded to it, try a higher dose at a faster drip rate. Marian.

Reading Your Protocol Again

I am a little confused so please clarify. Each night did you take the same amount and for how long a time? Did the time vary each night or was it the same througout your treatment of Vit.C IV. You mention K1 and K2, I think...what are they? Did you take Alph Lipoic acid with it? Did Dr. Cathcart and the other drs. speak to your husband personally and give you a protocol? I take 50 gram over two hours. I did take it for an one hour period but they thought it might too strenuous to take over that time. Did you also speak with Dr. Drisko? She did a study but she hasn't given out the results as yet. Did they give you their protocol? Thanks.. Susan
