The Vitamin C Cure for Cancer Dr. Mort Walker

The Vitamin C   Cure for Cancer   Dr. Mort Walker

Practitioners of conventional oncology (tumor) medicine have overlooked  a particularly important medical journal article about using therapeutic nutrition against cancer. They have ignored this vital piece of information simply because when it appeared, it did so ’way in the back pages of a major medical journal. Before my bringing the article to your attention here, it stayed unnoticed by both cancer therapists and cancer victims. In the current published piece, the medical scientists, all specialists in oncological nutrition, clearly state: “Our findings give plausibility to the use of intravenous ascorbic acid (IV vitamin C) for cancer treatment.”I urge you to look up the article footnoted at the end of this Special Report. But if the reference (footnote No. 1) is unavailable to you, you will find its full text, along with other published papers advocating IV vitamin C as anticancer therapy, listed and accessible to you at no charge on the Internet. Simply go to http://brightspot.org/cresearch/index.shtml. Renowned orthomolecular medical researchers of previous years, including two-time Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling, Ph.D., were right when they announced their original findings in 1979. Despite being ridiculed and called “quacks,” these orthomolecular medicine investigators had long recognized the great importance of vitamin C in fighting cancer.

Dr. Pauling defined orthomolecular medicine as “the treatment of disease by the provision of the optimum molecular environment, especially the optimum concentrations of substances normally present in the human body.” Orthomolecular medicine uses safe,effectiveTherapy to fight illness. Almost every one of the nutrients it uses is safe, natural, and nontoxic. (Dr. Pauling wrote forewords to two of my 83 published books. I co-authored one with Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D., under the title:Orthomolecular Nutrition: New Lifestyle for Super Good Health (Keats Publishing, 1978). It was reissued 20 years later by The McGraw-Hill Companies with new, updated information at $17.95  This second edition McGraw-Hill book’s title is Putting It All Together: The New Orthomolecular Nutrition.) All of the enlightened orthomolecular physicians originally received traditional training in prescribing drugs, but eventually they realized that using products that the pharmaceutical industry manufactured did not bring their patients to a state of permanent wellness.

Drugs are only stopgaps for crises; in contrast, orthomolecular remedies such as intravenous ascorbic acid keep a person out of the hospital and prevent the steady deterioration of his or her physiology. Today’s nutrition-oriented doctors have become full-time practitioners of the new branch of medical therapy called“holistic medicine.”

One dispenser of holistic medicine is Leonard Haimes, M.D., who has been offering his patients preventive medical health care for more than 51 years. Dr. Haimes is medical director of the Haimes Centre Clinic, 7300 North Federal Highway, Suite 100,Boca Raton, Florida 33487. His medical practice partner is Mitchell F. Matez, D.O.;their office telephone is (561) 995-8484; their FAX is (561) 995-7773.Patients arrive at Boca Raton’s Haimes Centre Clinic from  all over Florida and other southern states to receive large doses of intravenous vitamin C—even as high as 150 grams per IV infusion. It is unlikely that people would take in anywhere near this dosageorally, because taking such a concentration of vitamin C by mouth will almost certainly cause an intolerable gastrointestinal reaction in the form of excessive diarrhea.

How Intravenous Vitamin C Kills Cancer

At very high levels in your blood, vitamin C acts against malignancies within the body, or even externally in test tubes or Petri dishes, as a pro-oxidant. This oxygen-attracting characteristic of the vitamin makes it an effective killer of cancer cells. Malignant cells cannot survive in the presence of oxygen molecules.

I want to emphasize, therefore, that ascorbic acid (vitamin C) that is in touch with cancer cells, whether in cultures (in vitro) or in the animal or human body (in vivo), kills cancer cells without harming normal cells. It does this by generating hydrogen peroxide, a potent oxidant, directly within the cancer tissues, and no damage happens to the surrounding, normal tissues. Cancer’s physiology (the metabolism of cancer cells) regards the pro-oxidant quality of high-concentration vitamin C as deadly poison!4 You can find confirmation of the paragraph above in another published paper that six orthomolecular physicians of great eminence collaborated on. These six doctors are Sebastian J. Padayatty, M.D.; Hugh D. Riordan, M.D.; Stephen M. Hewitt, M.D.; Arie Katz, M.D.; L. John Hoffer, M.D.; and Mark Levine, M.D. These holistic oncological physicians represent medical institutions of exceptional distinction such as the Molecular and Clinical Nutrition Section of the Digestive Diseases Branch of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (Drs. Padayatty, Katz, Levine); the Laboratory of Pathology, Centers for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute (Dr. Hewitt); National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland; Lady Davis Insititute for Medical Research (Dr. Hoffer) at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.; the Bio-Communications Research Institute (Dr. Riordan, who died while I was just beginning my research for this present Special Report), Wichita, Kansas.

Please send requests for further clarification of the six scientists’ conclusions to Dr. Mark Levine, Molecular and clinical Nutrition Section, Building 10, Room 4D52-MSC 1372, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892-1372; e-mail:markl@mail.nih.gov. IV administration of the maximum tolerated dose of vitamin C produces blood plasma levels 25 times what people achieve when they take the same dose orally. At high plasma concentrations, absorbic acid is toxic to most cancers, and the six orthomolecularists illustrate their conclusions with three published abstracts of case histories describing patients’ successes against cancer disabilities.

Case History One: Bladder Cancer

Arthur Compton (pseudonym), age 49, consulted his urologist because blood was steadily showing in his urine (hematuria). Cystoscopic examination showed that he had a primary bladder tumor with multiple satellite tumors extending two to three cm around it. He underwent surgery. Doctors did transurethral resection of the primary tumor and its surrounding tumor satellites, and fulgurated (cauterized) their bases. Mr. Compton declined chemotherapy or radiotherapy and instead chose to receive 30g of intravenous vitamin C twice weekly for three months. When these infusions ended, he started receiving 30 g of the same nutrient once every one to two months for four years. At the same time, the monthly IV injections were interspersed within periods of one to two months with frequent ascorbic acid infusions.
In March, 2006, nine years after his diagnosis, Mr. Compton remained in good health, with no symptoms of recurrence or metastasis. He maintained his vigorous health by taking the following oral nutritional supplements: botanical extract, chondroitinsulfate, chromium picolinate, flax oil, glucosamine sulfate, alpha-lipoic acid, selenium, and two probiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus plus L. rhamnosus.

Case History Two:

Lymphoma Doctors found that 66-year-old homemaker Margaret C. Warner (pseudonym) had a large paraspinal malignant mass on the left side of her iliopsoas muscle (located internally to her back muscles at the level of her forth and fifth lumbar vertebrae). The mass measured 3.5 to 7 cm across and 11 cm in the craniocaudal direction, with extension into the posterior paraspinal muscle. The mass had invaded her spine as well.
Biopsy revealed a diffuse, large B-cell lymphoma, and her oncologist recommended that Mrs. Warner undergo a five-week course of radiation and chemotherapy. She refused the chemo but took radiation, along with IV vitamin C. Mrs. Warner received 15 g of vitamin C twice per week for two months, 15 g once to twice per week for seven months, and then one g of IV vitamin C once every two to three months for one year, starting in January, 1995, along with the radiation therapy. New right and left axillary lymph nodes popped up during the radiations, but when those treatments ended in mid-March, 1995, the lymph problem disappeared. She continued with her IV vitamin C injections. During the following months, lymph node enlargements appeared and disappeared on a regular basis till December, 1996, when the oncologist re-examined Mrs. Warner thoroughly and declared her to be in normal health, with no clinical sign of lymphoma.
Ten years after the diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma at stage III, she is unaffected in any way by the previous cancer. Today Margaret Warner uses additional nutritional supplements in the form of beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, chondroitin sulfate, coenzyme Q-10, dehydroepiandrosterone, N-acetylcysteine, a multiple vitamin supplement, a botanical supplement, and bismuth tablets.

Case History Three: Kidney Cancer

At age 51, Laura Sacks (pseudonym) was found in August, 1995, to have a malignant tumor involving her left kidney.
Nephrectomy (kidney removal) in September, 1995, proved she had renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer), 9 cm in diameter, with a thrombus (blood clot) extending into the renal vein. Abdominal Cat scans and chest x-ray films showed no sign of metastatic disease (i.e., it had not spread elsewhere).
By March, 1996, further diagnostic work showed that new, small, rounded soft-tissue masses pointed to Mrs. Sacks having metastatic cancer, and by November, 1996, chest radiography revealed the spreading of small but multiple  cannonball-like lesions (damage). Her conventional oncologists urged her to receive radiation therapy and/or
chemotherapy. She declined conventional cancer treatment and instead chose to receive high concentrations of vitamin C intravenously at a dosage of 65 g (grams) twice per week for 10 months, starting in October, 1996. She also used other alternative therapies, i.e.,
6
thymus protein extract, N-acetylcysteine, niacinamide, and whole thyroid extract. Amazingly, in June, 1997, her chest radiography showed her to be clear of cancerous
lesions. They had vanished, except for one abnormality in the left lung field that her doctor thought might merely be a pulmonary scar from some former trauma.
She had long since stopped her high-dose vitamin C infusions when in October, 2001, her doctor spotted a new mass 3.5 cm in diameter in her anterior right lung via
radiography. A biopsy revealed small-cell carcinoma of the lung and she started receiving IV vitamin C again. This new cancer was more aggressive and caused
abdominal distension and constipation. By October, 2002, the patient had died, with no autopsy being performed. Local pathologists concluded that Laura Sacks had died from
small-cell lung cancer, not any recurrence of her original metastatic renal cell carcinoma. It would be fair to wonder whether continued high-dose IV vitamin C would have
kept her from being affected by lung cancer, because her renal cell carcinoma had disappeared due to her vitamin C infusions. Later, Mrs. Sacks’ close relatives revealed to
the six orthomolecular physicians that she was a longstanding cigarette smoker, and smoked even while receiving treatment for the kidney cancer.

More on How Intravenous C Works

Reported in accordance with the Best Case Series process of the National Cancer Institute, the content of this Special Report shows that ascorbic acid given intravenously
as a cancer therapy has the potential to cure cancer. Patients who consume tightly controlled plasma and cell concentrations in the amount of 200 to 300 mg per day of vitamin C in five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables show fasting steady-state plasma concentrations of only about 70-80 mini-mol/L of the vitamin. In contrast, peak plasma concentrations of vitamin C obtained intravenously tend to reach 14,000 mini-mol/L in patients’ blood, which selectively kills cancer cells but not normal cells. The sole cause of the cancer cells’ death is extracellular ascorbate, at pharmacologic concentrations that patients can achieve only intravenously. IV ascorbic acid generates hydrogen peroxide in the blood, which serves as a naturally induced pro-drug (a good thing), rather than the artificial, toxicological negative effect of laboratory-manufactured chemical drugs.
