IV Vitamins are supporting people during Coronavirus times…
It’s an uncertain time and so much is up in the air. However, what we DO have control over is supporting our body the best way we can in the face of coronavirus and the impending cold and flu season. We all want to boost our immune system so as to not give corona a fighting chance.
We have been following the latest research on how other countries are fighting COVID and the research shows that high-dosage IV drips are very helpful. For years we have coached our clients on incorporating tools that boost their immune system, but now even more is necessary. That’s why we added IV infusions that include potent vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Promising research IVs show in supporting the immune system and preventing viruses from taking hold is so inspiring. Chinese doctor Richard Cheng is involved in three clinical trials looking at the use of IV vitamin C at a dose of 6,000-24,000 mg/day. He recommends the use of intravenous vitamin C for prevention of coronavirus. He and his team have been looking at how vitamin C affects the course of the virus since February. Dr. Cheng is a US board-certified specialist in anti-aging medicine and states that “the current sole focus on vaccine and specific antiviral drugs for epidemics is misplaced” as a silver bullet against this crisis. What he does stress is that “early and sufficiently large doses of intravenous vitamin C are critical. Vitamin C is not only a prototypical antioxidant, but also involved in virus killing and prevention of viral replication.” At Cambiati Wellness, our vitamin C dose in our immune-boosting cocktail is from 12,500 mg-25,000 mg.
Shanghai is now regularly using vitamin C IV therapy against COVID-19. It’s being found to help develop a stronger immune system response, lower the cytokine storm (an immune response where the body starts attacking its own cells and tissues instead of or in addition to the virus itself), and/or improve antiviral activities via other mechanisms. It is theorized that pulmonary failure (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, or ARDS) is the main way COVID-19 damages and eventually kills many people. This process increases oxidative stress and leads to cellular injury, organ failure and potentially death. As a vaccine and antiviral drugs are not yet on the market, we can support the body’s defenses with IV Vitamin C and other antioxidants. There are a couple of theories about why high-dose vitamin C works to combat viruses. One is that it actually creates free radicals, which become pro-oxidant rather than antioxidant. Our cells can protect against these free radicals, but viruses have no protection against these compounds. Other thoughts include the fact that viruses use up our antioxidant stores, and vitamin C and other antioxidants replenish what they “take.”
Many other clinical applications of vitamin C include sepsis, hepatitis, herpes, chickenpox, measles, mono, arthritis and cancer. It may also be useful in the management of high cholesterol, glaucoma, burns, heatstroke, heavy metal poisoning and more. Vitamin C can also be used in conjunction with other medications, and may even have a synergistic effect.
Vitamin C was also able to reduce ICU length of stays in an analysis of 18 clinical studies on ICU patients in 2004. It was found that 17,000 mg/day of IV vitamin C had shortened the average ICU stay by 44 %. When administered with medical supervision, high-dose vitamin C should be safe without much risk of adverse side effects. Similar prospects are happening with people struggling with SARS-CoV-2.
