What is it?

It’s a combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can be put together in several different ways which are then injected into a vein.

Why does it work better than simple supplements from the shop?

It can be a 20-minute push or a longer infusion depending on the purpose. Intravenous vitamins and minerals are introduced into the body by a vein and avoid the “first pass” of the liver. When you swallow a pill, it goes through the digestive system and the liver which acts as a filter to remove some of what that pill contained. This is a normal process and whatever is left gets into the system and delivered to our cells to allow our bodies to function. Nutritional IV avoids the “first pass,” and you get 100% of that solution. Just imagine how you would feel if you got the full effect of the multivitamin you’re taking.

How we can help?

At Life Cancer Care, we offer the following IV Therapies as one of the 7 pillars to Beating Cancer. These therapies play a vital role in our holistic cancer treatment programs.

High Dose Vitamin C IV therapy improves oxidative damage to cancer cells as well as been researched its supportive role in chemotherapy and radiation therapy, other benefits including:

  • Improved blood serum levels of Vitamin C
  • Lower side effects of conventional treatments

IV ALA has been used successfully in our clinic as a supportive breast cancer treatment and colon cancer treatment

IV ALA has shown in research studies to be effective against a variety of other cancers including leukemia and ovarian. Its potent antioxidant capabilities is exemplified by its ability to inhibit cell proliferation as well as apotosis (programmed cell death). It has also been shown to reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels), in cancer cells, which helps stop the spread of cancer.

In terms of combining with other agents, ALA has be shown to be synergistic in its anti-cancer effect when combined with IV vitamin C.  

Glutathione IV therapy improves liver and brain functions as well as other benefits including:

  • Improved circulation throughout the body and decreases clotting
  • Action as a cancer complementary therapy to minimise side-effects from chemotherapy
  • Liver detoxification

There is gathering evidence that intravenous (IV) artesunate can be helpful in killing cancer cells when combined in conventional therapy or chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or when combined with natural treatments like IV vitamin C.

Artesunate can be effective because it selectively affects tumor cells without harming normal cells. This is because artesunate only affects cells that contain excessive amounts of iron which in this case is cancer cells. Cancer cells have very specific receptors on the cell membrane which demand large amounts of iron which is needed for cell division. When coming into contact with iron, artesunate triggers the release of free radicals that destroys the cancer cells. The more the cancer cells accumulate iron the higher the chance for artesunate therapy to work.

IV B17 also known as Laetrile and Amygdalin B17 IV therapy is used to directly attack cancerous cells in the body while not harming non-cancerous cells. Research is still being conducted on this naturally occurring compound however promising cases studies are coming out of Mexico.

The Myers’ cocktail is a popular vitamin and mineral IV treatment that is used for a wide range of health conditions and symptoms including:

    • Chronic Fatigue
    • Immune Boosting
    • Reducing side effects
    • Allergies

Chelation therapy involves delivering medication called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) intravenously into the bloodstream. EDTA is a FDA-approved substance that treats heavy metal poisoning, heart disease, cancer, and chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. It also improves blood circulation.

How does it benefit your body?

By removing excess heavy metals from the body, cells function optimally, elasticity of arterial walls increases, and there are less free radicals in the body. These benefits help to prevent damage to our blood vessels (leading to heart attacks and strokes), brain cells (causing memory loss and dementia), and DNA (creating cancer).

Treatments with the thymus peptides involve taking extracts of thymus gland from animal sources. The thymus gland is an important gland in moderating the entire immune response to pathogens and defective cells. As we age the thymus shrinks in size and therefore its function is compromised and we are more at risk of cancer. Various factors can accelerate the weakening of the thymus gland, and they include malnutrition, repeated infections and chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. Taking thymus extracts or peptides helps increase the activity of the body’s own thymus gland by activating the white blood cells to be more active against cancer.

Spleen peptides are sourced from animal sources of spleen. The spleen gland is the largest gland of the lymphatic system and is a reservoir for white blood cells for assisting in activating an immune response in the body. Peptides of the spleen have been shown in research to be particularly effective in activating an immune response of the NK cells (natural killer cells) which are responsible for seeking out cancer cells and triggering cancer cell death. Peptide therapy can be combined with conventional treatments as a means to reducing the side effects of the therapy whilst at the same time helping to optimize the conventional treatments against cancer.

Treatments with peptides can also be given as IV infusions if needed.

Most people get enough vitamin B12 from their diet, but a deficiency may occur in certain health conditions such as patients with cancer. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves.
