Cherie: ...Why aren't more people doing Vitamin C in the USA?
Other than generations of medical silence
, mistatement, misdirection, intimidation, and naked attack if necessary, no reason at all.
The easiest entry point to IV vitamin C as curative treatment
is with acute viral infection and many toxins including bacterial; cancer is more complicated.
Cherie: ...But I have not done any chemo. It just makes me too sick even the smallest amount.
Cherie, what is your lowest 5FU / xeloda dose to date ? Your previous comments indicate partial DPD deficiency (total DPD deficiency would have been much worse 1st time, easily fatal). Asians actually induce DPD deficiency for the 5FU prodrug tegafur. Say 1600-2000 mg/d for straight tegafur, 400-900 mg/d for uracil/tegafur (with a mild, reversible inhibitor) or only 50-80 mg/d tegafur with TS-1 (with a strong irreversible DPD inhibitor).
Cherie: ...So here I ponder what will the surgeon find....I pray vitamin c will be my hero.
Vilca: ... small nodules that are becoming necrotized
Cherie's low CEA cancer is statistically and usually biologically favorable. The loss of hypermetabolic activity sounds good. But it could be for lack glucose to be processed, lack of glucose processing or otherwise inhibited or
dead cells. Vitamin C is an accumulating glucose decoy. I think it is important to pursue extra adjuncts before they are needed. With elevated CEA and CA19-9, we've needed IV C, 5FU, flavonoids, celecoxib, K2, and others just to stop the biomarker rises and cancer spread. Also we wouldn't do exploratory surgery without the expectation of taking all the available souvenirs larger than 6-10 mm, things that are harder to treat.
After surgery, even in the recovery room is the time to restart IV vitamin C, daily if possible according to the old timers. IV vitamin C has several major surgical benefits and surgery massively depletes vitamin C.
