Experience with IV Vitamin C
Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 19, 2008
From Dr Loretta Lamphier to a yahoo discussion:
I think that 50 grams per session (should be every day) is most likely not
enough Vitamin C and I agree with Leonard in that the non-corn derived is
best. They used to use beets and now they use tapioca. This can become a
very expensive protocol unless you have a family member that can do the
We used Dr. Takemoto’s protocol (tapioca derived Vitamin C) when my Mom had
. She was getting 75 grams of his Vitamin C IV mix every day.
She had been doing very well using natural medicine and then my Dad’s late
stage Alzheimer’s disease got to be VERY stressful and her tumor markers
began to climb a bit. She was trying to take better care of him than
herself. We put her on the BioImmune full protocol but she was probably not
being as faithful with some things – except for the IV as we did these at
her home every day. We did witness the growing during this time as
she fell and broke her hip and tests showed it had spread into the bones.
We also began to see the cancer come to the skin around where her port had
been placed. She had to go into rehab for her hip and they would not allow
the Vitamin C IV and within 2 months she was gone.
I have seen several cases where the IVs were great – until they were
stopped. Then it seemed the cancer came back quickly. And I believe that
Dr. Takemoto suggests using at least 75 grams on a daily basis for active
cancer. It’s not something that I have seen work even as effectively as the
Budwig Protocol, but, as we all know, SO much depends on the emotions/stress
levels and on how willing a person is to change their lifestyle. I would
guess that people do get results, as you say Leonard, as it seems to be
praised all the time – but I have never witnessed any, first hand.
