Linda’s comments: Well I would blow their boxers off…I take 16,000 to 24,000 daily of the BioEnergyC from www.longevityplus.com My dogs get a minimum of 4000 mg in a one gallon water bowl….the five gallon water dish gets 20,000 mgs. I quiet frankly sick and tired of hearing the NIH and FDA and the pharmaceuticals squawk about taking high dosing of VitC….poor fellows, don’t have a clue…
Dr. Gordon’s Comments:
Everything you think you know about vitamin C is probably more than 50% wrong and, if you relied on this official appearing document re vitamin C, you would not use it. The attached document is from NIH so it gives you all the negative but you must know all that too.
But I am providing you with the contrary opinion. You will be amazed at how the right hand of the government does not know what the left hand is doing! FDA has approved vitamin C for treating one type of cancer! That opens the door to great speculation and further research about non-toxic cancer therapies and I am excited to incorporate into this program the power of PEMF, which makes each cell ALKALINE and restores transmembrane potential. So I believe I have two or more non-toxic approaches that need to be looked at concurrently and incorporated with my FIGHT program for long term success.
Using IV VIT C with my FIGHT program and PEMF ( Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy ) you will see and feel results with PEMF on top of my FIGHT program, I am clearly getting younger!
There are other ways to enhance the effectiveness of high dose IV Vitamin C in treating cancer and using it alone I do not find that IV VIT C is very often curative but it almost always helps and buys time for other therapies to be instituted.
Remember we all need to improve outcomes, as our patients pay cash. We are not endowed by Government funds like our brethren using their chemo/radiation. They are generally covered and just bill the system and are ok no matter what the outcome. We are NOT OK unless we turn out superior results and have data that shows we can beat mainstream outcomes hands down.
This NIH authoritative appearing well– referenced document would make anyone think oral low dose (2000 mg and under) Vitamin C is dangerous and causes cancer and heart disease. It appears to be fully referenced up to date through November 2009 yet it is missing an important point; somehow IV vitamin C WITH K-3 is now FDA approved for treating bladder cancer!! After all if anyone knew that vitamin C could be FDA approved for one cancer then some doctors would have some interest in trying it in other cancers just like the oncologists do everyday.
How can I and many of our colleagues be successfully using oral and IV vitamin C to keep Cancer patients alive far longer than their oncologists predict and still be considered by mainstream oncologists to be so wrong? They tell their patients to never use vitamin C!
This report even has recommendations about not exceeding what they have established now, as their safe upper limit of oral vitamin C at 2000 mg MAX. Yet it is hard for them to ignore entirely what we are doing with cancer so they throw in some words to try to sound plausible with their otherwise very negative review of vitamin C. This is BURIED in the attached report but of course they have their numbers about what the maximum serum levels achievable with oral vitamin c vs. the high serum levels achievable with IV Vitamin C. Those that are interested to get to the bottom of this mystery will find that vitamin c deserves your serious attention, IV and ORAL because there is always the rest of the story.
This is just one paragraph from many articles you may want to review once you read my comments: ’The bottom line is: Apatone selectively targets and kills tumor cells using non-toxic biochemistry that protects surrounding healthy tissue.” Licensed in 2004 to IC-MedTech, Inc., a California-based biotechnology company, the first clinical trial began in 2005 to evaluate the drug in prostate cancer patients. The clinical studies, which were conducted at Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio and with Dr. Ananias Diokno at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich., examined the safety and effectiveness in 17 end-stage prostate cancer patients for 12 weeks. These patients took Apatone orally each day. The trials were supported by the Beaumont Foundation, Summa Health System and IC-MedTech.
Yet this is the best that the NIH report can offer the informed patients and physicians trying to help cancer patients. They admit there could be some discrepancy in the research but clearly tell no one that vitamin C is working when mixed with the correct form of vitamin K-3 (Apatone), which increases its oxidative capacity.
Remember this work using vitamin C for cancer goes back several years now and it consists IV vitamin C with the correct form of vitamin K, which unfortunately it appears that most physicians have never found the correct form since there appears to be as many as 6 molecules being sold as vitamin K-3 and some are toxic. Yet in the lecture I will deliver for The Oxidative Training Workshop during IMOSAIC on April 7th at the Minneapolis conference, sponsored by ACAM, AHIMA, AAEM and ICIM, I will educate you about how easily you can kill the therapeutic effect when you are trying to master oxidative therapies with something as simple as giving NAC or GLUTATHIONE concurrently.

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential dietary component .
Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and certain neurotransmitters; vitamin C is also involved in protein metabolism [1,2]. Collagen is an essential component of connective tissue, which plays a vital role in wound healing. Vitamin C is also an important physiological antioxidant  and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) . Ongoing research is examining whether vitamin C, by limiting the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity, might help prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases in which oxidative stress plays a causal role. In addition to its biosynthetic and antioxidant functions, vitamin C plays an important role in immune function  and improves the absorption of nonheme iron , the form of iron present in plant-based foods. Insufficient vitamin C intake causes scurvy, which is characterized by fatigue or lassitude, widespread connective tissue weakness, and capillary fragility [1,2,4,6-9].
