Vitamin C orally and by IV administration for viral infections, has been approved in China as recently as February 2020. There are currently three large studies on the use and efficacy of IV Vitamin C and the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Vitamin C orally and by IV administration (IVC) is also used in the realm of Integrative Oncology as Dr West has outlined in her article on IV Vitamin C and Cancer. Out of 822 studies on PUBMED relating to vitamin C and viral infections, nearly 90% of them have unavailable abstracts. Suddenly, the information is not available. Most of the study abstracts that are available end with conclusions that ‘the study had inadequate results’ or that ‘more data is needed’. Of course, this makes me highly suspicious as there are two incredible books that have copious references cited throughout them on the use of Vitamin C for immune system and viruses. Vitamin C, Infectious Disease and Toxins by Dr Thomas Levy. The other is Vitamin C, the Common Cold and the Flu, by Linus Pauling. How Does Vitamin C Work? Vitamin C invokes several functions of the immune system: White blood cells love vitamin C and concentrate up to 80 times...

    Intravenous Therapy

What is Chelation and How Does it Work Using chelation therapy for the treatment of heart disease is still considered to be an experimental treatment even though the most recent study showed benefit. Chelation therapy is FDA only approved for toxic metal poisoning and hypercalcemia (a condition of too much calcium). Chelation literally means "to chemically bind to." Chelation can be administered either orally or intravenously but oral bioavailability is poor. Chelation may help but this depends on many factors.  I have noticed that it is most effective when elevated levels of reactive metals are present. Several theories have been proposed for how this treatment may work. One theory suggests that EDTA chelation might work by directly removing calcium found in fatty plaques that block the arteries, causing the plaque to decrease in volume. Another is that the process of chelation may stimulate the release of a hormone (calcitonin) that in turn causes calcium to be removed from the plaques and redistributed. A third theory is that chelation therapy may work by reducing the damaging effects of oxygen ions and reactive transition metals (oxidative stress) on the walls of the blood vessels. Reducing oxidative stress could reduce inflammation in the...
