THE ULTIMATE MICROBIAL CLEANSE:

Walter Last

Most diseases are caused or aided by microbes and parasites. Due to antibiotics, steroidal drugs and chemotherapy our natural intestinal bacteria have been damaged and pathogenic microbes, especially fungi and mycoplasmas, are out of control. Commonly babies now become inoculated with pathogens already in the birth canal. Also microbes from childhood vaccinations may still be present, and there tend to be infection foci in root-canal treated teeth and possibly in scars from surgery. All of these greatly weaken our immune system and allow pathogenic microbes to invade the blood and internal organs. Now we become susceptible to frequent infections, autoimmune diseases, allergies, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Pathogenic microbes are the underlying cause of basically all chronic diseases.

“In prior research, the same scientists found that high-dose vitamin C selectively killed cancer cells in the laboratory, and had the same effect in mice … if the vitamin C was administered intravenously. In the new study, researchers sought to discover the causes behind this effect.

“They found that in the body, vitamin C quickly breaks down, generating the free radical hydrogen peroxide as a byproduct.”

I know for many, many years that the hydrogen peroxide generation is the main reason for vitamin C infusions to be effective against cancer.

This is really nothing new.


Researchers found that using vitamin C correctly in high doses kills cancer cells:

One of the greatest controversies in oncology may have been resolved: Researchers may have discovered the reason that research into the effectiveness of high-dose vitamin C as a cancer treatment has been so mixed.

When taken orally, massive quantities of vitamin C are either broken down or excreted unused by the body. In contrast, intravenous administration of vitamin C produces blood levels 100 to 500 times higher than oral administration.

This could explain why many clinical trials on vitamin C and cancer — most of which have used oral administration — failed to support the results seen in laboratory studies using cancer cells.

Surprisingly, the most recent study on the topic from researchers at the University of Iowa (UI), published in the journal Redox Biology, suggests that vitamin C’s cancer-fighting potential might come not from its antioxidant capabilities, as previously assumed. On the contrary, vitamin C appears to generate free radicals that tear apart cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.

Targeting a weakness of cancer cells

In prior research, the same scientists found that high-dose vitamin C selectively killed cancer cells in the laboratory, and had the same effect in mice … if the vitamin C was administered intravenously. In the new study, researchers sought to discover the causes behind this effect.

They found that in the body, vitamin C quickly breaks down, generating the free radical hydrogen peroxide as a byproduct. This is a paradoxical effect, because free radicals are the very cell- and DNA-damaging chemicals that antioxidants such as vitamin C remove from the body.

But the researchers further found that healthy cells seemed to have defensive mechanisms that easily allowed them to resist the oxidizing effects of hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide is, in fact, used as a defense mechanism by the body’s own immune system). Tumor cells, however, were much more likely to be damaged and destroyed by the chemical.

“In this paper we demonstrate that cancer cells are much less efficient in removing hydrogen peroxide than normal cells. Thus, cancer cells are much more prone to damage and death from a high amount of hydrogen peroxide,” lead researcher Garry Buettner said.

“This explains how the very, very high levels of vitamin C used in our clinical trials do not affect normal tissue, but can be damaging to tumor tissue.”

Treatment on the horizon?

The researchers found that healthy cells use various mechanisms to remove hydrogen peroxide, and that one of the primary mechanisms is the enzyme catalase. They found that the lower cells’ catalase activity, the more damage they suffered from hydrogen peroxide exposure.

“Our results suggest that cancers with low levels of catalase are likely to be the most responsive to high-dose vitamin C therapy, whereas cancers with relatively high levels of catalase may be the least responsive,” Buettner said.

The researchers are planning future research to develop ways to measure tumors’ catalase levels and test this hypothesis further.

UI researchers also conducted clinical trials using intravenous, high-dose vitamin C in patients with pancreatic and lung cancer. Earlier, smaller trials suggested that this treatment had limited side effects and might improve patient outcomes. The larger study hopes to establish whether vitamin C, in conjunction with other cancer treatments, actually boosts patient survival.

Research continues to uncover new and surprising mechanisms by which vitamin C attacks cancer cells. A 2007 study by researchers from Johns Hopkins University found that many tumor cells rely on a protein known as HIF-1 for their survival, which allows them to continue growing in the absence of oxygen — which cancer cells tend to use up through their out-of-control reproduction. But HIF-1 only functions in high concentrations of free radicals, which vitamin C removes.

A 2015 study published in the journal Science found that in colorectal cancer cells with particular cell growth-related mutations, vitamin C induces oxidative stress and shuts down an enzyme that the cells use for reproduction. This finding was particularly promising, since cancer cells with this mutation are almost entirely immune to chemotherapy.

Editor’s note: We strongly recommend sourcing non-GMO vitamin C where possible. Most vitamin C is currently made from GMO corn. Very few providers currently offer non-GMO vitamin C.

Dirt Cheap Protocol (Updated December 22, 2016):

When dealing with cancer, someone in the family should be designated as the “cancer guru” in the family. This person should become an expert in the main protocol. For example, they should study this article and the articles it links to several times to make sure they understand this protocol.

For example, I have been contacted by many cancer patients who described the cancer protocol they were using. In some cases, they were using the Dirt Cheap Protocol, but they were only using three or four of these items. Someone didn’t do their homework. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen this. A patient should use 14 or more of the items in this protocol, not three or four.  Fighting cancer is like fighting a fire, you need enough fire trucks. Continue reading »

Commentary:

The reason why vitamin C infusions are effective in cancer therapy is because of hydrogen peroxide (H202) production, which destroys the cancer causing parasites, sending the ‘immortal’ cancer cells into apoptosis:

Study: Vitamin C May Fight Cancer (WebMed):

Levine’s team studied vitamin C (also called ascorbate or ascorbic acid) and cancer cells in lab tests. Vitamin C appeared to boost production of hydrogen peroxide, which killed cancer cells and left healthy cells unharmed.

The levels of vitamin C were so high that they could only be achieved through IV infusions.

Intravenous Vitamin C Kills Cancer Cells:

Recall how hydrogen peroxide is poured on wounds to kill germs. Well now researchers clearly show high-dose vitamin C, when administered intravenously, can increase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) levels within cancer cells and kills them. I.V. vitamin C was also demonstrated to kill germs and may be an effective therapy for infectious disease.

With a growing body of evidence mounting, National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers conceded today that intravenous vitamin C may be an effective treatment for cancer. Last year the same researchers reported a similar study but the news media failed to publish it.

The latest study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, confirms the work of Nobel-Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling who conducted cancer research in the 1970s with vitamin C. Dr. Pauling’s studies were discredited at the time by poorly conducted research studies at the Mayo Clinic.

Unlike cancer drugs, I.V. vitamin C selectively killed cancer cells, but not healthy cells, and showed no toxicity. The ability of intravenous vitamin C to kill lymphoma cells was remarkable — almost 100% at easily achievable blood serum concentrations.

For inexplicable reasons, NIH researchers continue to maintain high-dose oral vitamin C can produce a limited increase in serum vitamin C concentrations. However, their earlier study published in 2004 clearly showed oral-dose vitamin C can achieve three times greater blood concentration than previously thought possible, a fact which negates the current Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin C. [Annals Internal Medicine 140:533—7, 2004] NIH researchers refuse to issue a retraction of their earlier flawed research which mistakenly claimed humans cannot benefit from high-dose oral vitamin C supplements.

The NIH also offered no explanation why it has taken 35 years to confirm the work of Dr. Linus Pauling.

For my German readers:

„Die Ärzte-Zeitung“ berichtete am 14.09.2005 ebenso wie „Spiegel online“ am 13.09.2005 und die „FAZ“ am 18.09.2005 von den Ergebnissen einer amerikanischen Studie des „National Institutes of Health“ in Bethesda/USA : dort wurde an Zellkulturen die krebsabtötende Wirkung von hochdosiertem Vitamin C nachgewiesen. Die Wissenschaftler untersuchten die Wirkung von Ascorbinsäure an zehn Krebszelllinien und vier Kulturen gesunder Körperzellen. Das Ergebnis war eindeutig:

Das Vitamin C tötete gezielt die Krebszellen ab, während die gesunden Zellen nicht geschädigt wurden!

Damit die Tumorzellen tatsächlich abstarben, musste Vitamin C jedoch in sehr hohen Konzentrationen von 8-10g verabreicht werden, wie sie nur durch eine Infusion direkt in die Vene erreicht werden können. Die Ascorbinsäure führt zur Bildung von Wasserstoffperoxid, welches den Tod der Krebszellen verursachte, stellten die Forscher weiter fest. Wasserstoffperoxid entstand dabei jedoch nur in der unmittelbaren Umgebung de Zellen und nicht im Blut. Das Blut sei deshalb ein ideales Transportmittel, mit dem intravenös verabreichte Ascorbinsäure zu den verschiedenen Geweben befördert werden könne, schreiben die Wissenschaftler im Fachblatt „Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences“ (Bd. 1202, S.13604). Zudem könnte die Ascorbinsäure auch für die Behandlung von Infektionskrankheiten verwendet werden, denn Wasserstoffperoxid spielt im Immunsystem eine wichtige Rolle in der Abwehr von Bakterien und Viren.

Zusammenfassend sind die Ergebnisse der o.g. Studie aus folgenden Gründen wichtig:

  1. Sie bestätigt Ergebnisse früherer in vitro Studien, dass Vitamin C Tumorzellen zerstören kann.
  2. Sie zeigt klar, dass Vitamin C diese Wirkung nur in hohen Konzentrationen zeigt, die nur über die parenterale Gabe möglich sind.
  3. Sie zeigt klar, dass Vitamin C für Tumorzellen toxisch, für normale Zellen aber harmlos ist.
  4. Sie zeigt, das Vitamin C Tumorzellen durch Herstellung von Wasserstoffperoxid im extrazellulären Raum zerstört.
  5. Sie zeigt, dass Vitamin C kein Wasserstoffperoxid im Blut generiert.
  6. Die Autoren schließen daraus, dass die Generierung von Wasserstoffperoxid durch den parenteralen Einsatz von hoch dosiertem Vitamin C auch die Behandlung von Infektionen unterstützt.

This is one of many reasons why the FDA will take injectable vitamin C away from the people.


The FDA has just notified small pharmacies that they will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C—despite its remarkable power to heal conditions that conventional medicine can’t touch. Please help reverse this outrageous decision!

Let’s get this straight. The government acknowledges the risk of a worldwide flu pandemic. It acknowledges that conventional drugs cannot cure big viruses-like the mononucleosis and hepatitis viruses, many influenza viruses, and many others. It acknowledges that many bacteria have become resistant to antibiotics and are killing increasing thousands. It acknowledges the risk of a worldwide drug-resistant TB pandemic.

Despite acknowledging all this, it now insists on wiping out one of the best potential treatments for these conditions and for certain cancers as well. And why is this being done? What possible rationale is offered? Because it’s dangerous? No. Because it can’t be patented and therefore won’t be taken through the standard FDA approval process. No matter that vitamin C is one of the least toxic components of our food supply and liquid forms of it have been used safely for decades.

By the way, here is what is not safe. Don’t substitute home-made vitamin C solution for pharmaceutical grade liquid. That is not safe for injection. If the FDA action leads someone to do that, the FDA should be held responsible for the results.

The government, instead of banning intravenous vitamin C, should instead be supporting research into it. Even though IV C is being used in burn units around the world, including in the US, and has been adopted by the military for this purpose, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) refuses to fund any studies using intravenous C in patients. There are privately funded studies currently underway, but of course these cannot continue if the FDA bans the substance.

With at least one of the pharmacies, the FDA seems to be banning injectable magnesium chloride and injectable vitamin B-complex 100 as well. These two substances are routinely added to intravenous C to make the “Myers Cocktail,” used especially for conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, and infectious diseases such as hepatitis, AIDS, mononucleosis, and flu. The FDA is not going after the Myers Cocktail directly, but is rather attacking each individual substance used to make the cocktail, and may conceivably be going after injectable vitamins and minerals in general, despite such injections being given under the care of a qualified physician.

Please contact the FDA right away, and tell them to stop this foolish war on intravenous vitamin C!

Each of us reading this should think, “Intravenous C could someday save my life.” Dr. Jonathan Collin, editor of the Townsend Letter, discusses the case of a man in New Zealand who nearly died from swine flu. After developing a severe fever and upper respiratory infection, his condition deteriorated and he became comatose. Eventually even a ventilator was insufficient to keep him breathing because his lungs were so compromised by pulmonary edema. After weeks of heroic intervention, doctors decided there was no chance of survival and nothing further should be done for him.

The family asked the hospital to administer intravenous vitamin C. After much disagreement, the hospital gave him 25 grams of vitamin C every 6 hours. There was so much improvement over the next two days that the hospital decided to reinstate his intensive care—but they discontinued the vitamin C, saying that he had improved only because they had rolled him onto his side or his stomach instead of keeping him on his back! Not surprisingly, his condition once again deteriorated.

The family moved him to another facility that reluctantly allowed the IV vitamin C (albeit at a lower dose), and his lung function gradually improved. He came out of coma after four weeks, and after taking vitamin C orally, he gradually improved enough to be discharged. One year later, he was back to flying his plane and surveying his farm in New Zealand. None of the doctors who fought so hard to prevent his treatment with vitamin C have ever acknowledged their error.
