Maintenance Therapy

Has anyone considered IV treatments of vitamin C as a maintenance treatment following first-line treatment of Ovarian cancer. The rate of recurrence is so high with advanced ovarian cancer that I'm surprised there is nothing in the medical literature concerning trials or experiments testing vitamin C as a means of preventing regrowth of microscopic cancer cells remaining in the sustem after initial chemo therapy.

I know there is a trial in Kansas using Vitamin C to treat advanced cases of OC where other therapies have proven ineffective. It seems that C's role as a maintenance treatment (particularly in view of its low liklihood of adverse side effects and clearly documented beneficial effects) should make it a prime candicdate for study. 

Any medical researchers out ther willing or able to tell me what I am missing? My wife just completed initial chemo therapy treatments for IIIC OC, including 3  cycles of IP Cisplatin.  I'm urging her to continue with a maintenace program of C IV on a weekly basis.

Any suggestions? Thanks and God bless you for  your time and consideration.

I am using Vit C therapy for 5 months now and it is working.

I refused chemo and radiation because I was more affraid of the chemicals and ionizing radiation they use than cancer itself.

The conventional treatments are MORE toxic then alternative approach.I am studying every aspect of this promissing but supressed ttreatment by main stream medicine , for cancer and other ailments THE NATURAL WAY.If you read the statistics about chemo and ovarian cancer there is only 3% survival rate because they do not tecah people what they should do after...they hope for the best and people get back to their everyday rutine and eat and drink crap.Oncologists do not tell you to stay AWAY from SUGAR in any way BUT  every reputable health oriented website warns about eating sugar. SUGAR feeds CANCER and if you do not believe research how the PET scan works andthen you will believe me.(They inject you with ionized glucoze before the PET scan to see where cancer is because cancer feeds on  sugar).  Cancer is not a one organ disease it is the whole body disease. So get yourself educated and get your wife on the Vit C and other vitamins treatment after the chemo(but let her get back to normal state) or her cancer will come back.Dr Abram Hoffer google him and you will get more info.Read about famous Dr Linus Pauling (dead since'94) and what he achieved. Just because he was on the other side of the medical establishment  and Dr Hoffer too...they were discriminated against by same medical establishments they worked for.Dr Hoffer is still alive and well in his 90-s and I love to talk to him.He is my doctor.Write back if you need more info.I can seem to receive your private replies because cancer compass blocks it.

Good luck, Aurora.

Hi Aurora,

Am an ovarian cancer patient, just re-diagnosed with a positive CAT & PET scan, elevated CA-125.  My original diagnosis was in May 06(stage 1C), and now it's back.  I'm very interested in your VitC therapy, and other suggestions. Do you do juicing?  I will begin a 2nd round of chemo next wed, on doxil most likely. Would love to hear more from you?

This message is in reply to the above three. Herpartner, Aurora, Mellany. I have posted quite a few messages on this board regarding the efficacy of Intravenous Vitamin C in the treatment of many types of cancer. I am a patient at a clinic which has been offering this treatment for many years with absolutely amazing results. The Doctor there began his career as a geneticist, went on to become a medical doctor, could not come to terms with the oath he took to "first do no harm" when he saw the harmsul results of many traditional treatments, studied further and now he practices complementary medicine. A friend of mine has just finished a course of Intravenous Vitamin C treatments there. In early December of last year 2006 he was told by oncologists he would not live to see Christmas. His prostate cancer had spread throughout his body including his bones. Lungs so full he could hardly take a breath. Today his scans all show great regression, he is feeling strong and healthy with no breathing difficulties. He had no traditional treatment at all and experienced no side effects from this all natural treatment. Since I have posted a full message about his experience on this board before, this one may be removed if it is considered redundant so please if anyone is interested in further information, send me a private message and I'll gladly respond. Shemay

Hi regarding Vitamin C therapy, it is not a cure all. I took IV vit C for four months at 100 - 150 grams a daily. Sometimes we had to put in through my feet as all the viens collapsed. My Ca125 rose from 18 - 2500 in three months.at first I was told that my scan had become clear with the treatment then we realised that they were looking at the wrong scan report. I was in fact coverd in tumours again. This was my third reoccurence  in 18 months. The vit C is contraindicated in abdominal tumours we have since learnt as it encourages ascites. I developed 17 pints of fluid and a blood clot nearly died, whilst taking the infusions. I came if the IV c and took chemo again ( 3rd course in two years). The chemo worked at first and now I'm on my fourth reoccurence in two years.

I had a friend who has since died who use IVC as well. She also developed ascites  and fluid around her lungs.

 I am married to a doctor so I was monitored and looked after wonderfully. Unfortunately IVC does not always work. Sorry to put a downer on this. I am now looking at NCD virus therapy and still praying. I am 26 months past my sell by date. Thanks to God and great medical intervention. Marian.

MariaUK:
Your earlier message was one that encouraged my wife and I to explore vitamin C IV as a maintenace therapy. I am very sorry to hear of your progression.

Vittually all advanced ovarian cancer involves abdominal tumors. Are you saying vitamin C is inappropriate for all advanced ovarian patients? Where can I find a literature refernce for the counterindication in abdominal tumors?

If this were widely known, I doubt that the two trials being conducted on advanced ovarian patients would have been approved. My wife experienced substantial ascites prior to her surgery. I am now concerned that the vitamin c may not be a good idea as a maintenance therapy. Can you suggest further information sources? I haven't seen anything like this in any of the articels or studies I've read.

God bless you. Keep your courage and your faith. There are vaccine trials underway that seem promising. We can all pray for their success.
