Vitamin C is commonly known to improve the look and overall health of the skin. However, some claim that Vitamin C can also speed up the process of healing from cancer. Michael Barnett, a former throat cancer patient, believes that when he had tried Vitamin C to heal his burns from cancer, his recovery sped up drastically. However, the medical community is skeptical of this claim. While Vitamin C can boost our immune system, more research is needed to make the definitive claim that it is beneficial to cancer patients.
- A symposium in Aukland, New Zealand recently focused on vitamin C and its potential for cancer treatment.
- Although the medical community remains skeptical, patients are apparently willing to shell out big bucks for vitamin C infusions pre and post chemo treatments.
- Vitamin C treatment sessions, lasting for about an hour and a half, can cost from 160 to 300 dollars.
“Treatment for throat cancer left Michael Barnett with severe burns, but he firmly believes intravenous vitamin C sped up his recovery.”
