    I am most interested in talking to the lady who was talking about high dose vitamin C.
    This is being taken alongside chemotherapy for her small and large cell lung cancer, with the full support of the oncologist – we are not stupid. Indeed IV vitamin C alongside chemotherapy is common practice in Germany.
    We have seen remarkable results, BUT ALAS NOT in the reduction in cancer size, which remained stable, but in the reduction of side effects of both the cancer itself and the chemotherapy. She has had no nausea and almost no hair loss. This is using megadose liposomal vitamin C which can get blood levels similar to IV infusions. There is a lot more to this story. It got her out of a wheel chair and now can go shopping unaided on foot without problems. Certainly her her quality of life has been hugely improved and that was BEFORE chemotherapy was started and has continued since.
