In addition to helping with general health and wellbeing, IV therapy is also useful as a supplemental treatment when undergoing traditional treatments for a variety of diseases and conditions. These include cold, flu, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, and even cancer. In fact, most people aren’t aware that high-dose IV Vitamin C was first used to help treat cancer decades ago. Now, high-dose Vitamin C as well as custom cocktail mixtures are being used more and more to boost the immune system of cancer patients, which may increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy, and help improve quality of life.

High-Dose Vitamin C for Cancer Patients
In addition to functioning as a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, Vitamin-C also helps support the immune system. By injecting Vitamin C in high doses, patients are able to ingest a much larger amount than the body can tolerate through other means. When given intravenously, Vitamin C also reacts differently in the body than when given orally. This is because oral Vitamin C is absorbed by the stomach and excreted before it has time to accumulate in the bloodstream. IV therapy circumvents this problem and allows for direct injection of Vitamin C into the blood.
Patients who take high-dose Vitamin C along with chemotherapy also tend to experience fewer toxic side effects.
While more studies need to be conducted to determine the exact role Vitamin C plays in cancer treatment, there is good evidence that IV therapy Vitamin C often has a very positive effect.
Custom Cocktails for Cancer Patients
In addition to Vitamin C IV therapy, Dr. Bereliani also offers custom cocktails that are designed to meet the unique needs of cancer patients. To do this, he draws on his years of IV therapy experience to create a blend of vitamins and minerals that goes beyond just Vitamin C and is tailor made for each individual patient.
