IV Vitamin Therapy

Today I had my first ever Vitamin IV at Get A Drip in London where I live. There is a whole menu of great stuff to choose from but I went for the Immunity Boosting drip which comprimises of:

Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B4 and B6.

Three doses of Vitamin C (3000mg) which is known to have positive effects on tumour shrinkage.

Rehydration solution which contains all of the fabulous electrolytes your body needs to replenish itself including potassium and glucose.

A booster Vitamin B12 IM shot for energy and again, immunity.

One of the main problems we, as Brain Tumour patients have is that there is a distinct lack of new studies or evidence to help us with our treatment choices and options. There is literally nothing. However, there is a lot of recent stuff out there that basic vitamins such as C & B at really high levels can attack our cancer and tumour cells to prevent any growth:

Cancer researchers have homed in on how high-dose vitamin C kills cancer cells. Vitamin C breaks down to generate hydrogen peroxide, which can damage tissue and DNA. The new study shows that tumor cells with low levels of catalase enzyme activity are much less capable of removing hydrogen peroxide than normal cells, and are more susceptible to damage and death when they are exposed to high doses of vitamin C.  

A tablet of Vitamin C from your general supplement store contains around 1000mg of Vitamin C which around 25% gets destroyed in the stomach before absorption takes place. This is why either IM or IV Vitamins are essential for patients like myself to obtain optimal absorbtion in the bloodstream.

This is why from now on I will have having a Vitamin Infusion every month to see if I can disrupt my cells into shrinkage. It truly is painless, I feel full of good energy and its very reasonably priced!

Other great vitamins for patients with Brain Tumours include:

  • Vitimin D - high levels have recently been shown to destroy cancer cells. For those of us who don't live in sunshine climates, extra vitamin D supplemtation is always essential, consider going for a blood test.
  • Glutothione- Glutathione is an antioxidant in plants, animals, fungi, and some bacteria and archaea. Glutathione is capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides, and heavy metals.
  • Magnesium- Helps with the fatigue!
Let me know if you've found any others that are beneficial 

By 2020 I am aiming to have raised £5000 for The Brain Tumour Charity to help #FindACureSooner and ensure continued support and readily available resources for patients and families of those who have Brain Tumours. Please click on the link and donate, if all of my readers donated £1 I would have met my target already! https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/moneyforbrains
