The Vitamin C Cure for Cancer Dr. Mort Walker
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:firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
