IV vitamin therapy

I heard yet another good piece of info about IV vitamin therapy.
I met a woman whose aunt had a recurrence of breast cancer after five years. She thought she would take some time to really boost her immune system before undertaking another chemo regime so she started IV vitamin therapy. After a period of time, she had the tumor scanned and it was absolutely dead. Her surgeon went in and removed the dead remnant or sac...the docs were shocked but thrilled. (The woman is, of course now hooked on nutritional therapy and is on a pretty strict alkaline diet to keep her body clean.)
This was told to me by the niece -- who is a NP at Stanford Hospital, a dyed-in-the-wool Western facility. I was just glad to hear about some first-hand usage...my other source was a firend whose mother used the vitamin therapy for leukemia a few years ago and is doing fine; she called it chelation therapy.
Thought I would pass it on. There is one website: orthomed.com that I have found. It is an odd site, but the doc might just be presenting things in his own manner for...
If anyone knows of other info or sites, it might be of interest.
I don't think this is voodoo. I would be intersted in continuing the post - if only to hear if anyone else knows of usage and success. I know we had a post a month or so ago about it.

Take care,
Maura

My boss at my last job had advanced stage IV kidney cancer and did vit C IV therapy along with many other alternative treatments such as......
chelation-"removes metals from the blood", meditation, macrobiotic diet, etc... and after about 6 months of strict daily Vit IV treatments his PET scan showed the tumor was "dead" ...this amazed the Mayo clinic docs who did all his scans and check ups while he did his alternative treatments.
But on the other hand I had a friend start Vit IV's after no luck with many different chemos and she didn't have any luck with the vit C IV's either..her cancer continued to progress.
I do believe though it can help some if given correctly and in the right doses.

I heard there are clinical trials going on now with Vit C IV.

Hi Maura and Sue,

Thanks so much for the info to both of you. I am in the range of Stanford and I would love to visit with one of their NPs to explore other healthy-living possibilities. Maura, can you give me a pointer on how to get in touch with them?

Sue, I really appreciated your post too. We each have something like 6 trillion cells which all interact and create a unlimited number of possible outcomes. So I can totally understand, just as a matter of statistics, how something that works for one may not work at all for another. But hey, I keep all of my options open, and hearing testimonials on both sides of each story keeps it all real for me. Again, thanks so much for the info!

Cheers,
Ying

If you check out Orthomed.com, Ying, you see that the doc related to the site is right around us, inLos Altos. I have been thinking of calling to get some other info about him, his services, etc. Check it out and let me know what you think. Take care - Maura

Hi Maura,

Thanks for the info. I'll check it out in early May. Right now I am obsessing with training for the Big Sur Marathon, I am only walking this year, 22 miles. After that I'll need a infusion of something for sure, electronlytes!?

I'll definitely check it out and let's swap information!

Cheers,
Ying

I thought that after my chemo that I might give vit therapy a try. I sat for something like 6 hours with an IV and complained about my arm hurting. Turns out that the vit drip was going into my arm instead of my vein and caused elephantitis of the arm. Needless to say, I decided to opt out of further treatments even though, it might be a good option. I thought it might be at least an energy boost after chemo.
Thanks for the info.

Oh my, that does not sound fun. I hope all is okay. Do you think the nurse just had a rotten stick or do you thik the office/center wasn't so hot. Again, so sorry that you had such a poor experience. take cre - Maura

It was probably just a rotten stick, but enough to make me not want to do it again. I had just finished every other week of sitting for chemo and couldn't stand the thought of having to do it again for any reason so I stopped before I really got started. There were several people in the infusion room getting vit IV or chelation. They all looked very sick. I just didn't want to be there. Maybe I'll try again someday if necessary, but not in the near future. It has been a year since I finished my chemo and I feel great. I didn't realize how much chemo affects the taste buds, but now that food tastes so wonderful, I am really enjoying it. Will the cancer come back? Maybe, if I don't die of something else first.
