Vitamin C is one of the biological treatments used at Verita Life. The body will process Vitamin C differently depending on whether it was taken orally or intravenously. Intravenous Vitamin C promotes the formation of hydrogen peroxide, which is deadly to cancer. Cancer cells are highly susceptible to damage by oxygen containing reactive compounds.
High dose Vitamin C infusions result in high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. These high concentrations damage cancer cell’s DNA and mitochondria and have a sort of destabilising effect that helps break down the cells and destroys the cancer. Alongside other cancer-fighting therapies, High Dose Vitamin C injections can significantly reduce the effect of cancerous cells.
One other biological treatment is Artesunate, a drug that was originally developed to fight malaria. It was found that Artesunate had powerful anti-tumour actions.
Artesunate induces programmemed cancer cell death (apoptosis) by reacting with iron particles in the lysosomes. Free radicals that are produced during this reaction destroy the cancer cells’ mitochondria- an important energy producing cell structure, killing the cancer cell from within. It has been thoroughly researched as an approved drug, is well-documented and completely viable for use where it can be effective.
