High Dose IV Vitamin C (IVC)
High-dose Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) treats a wide variety of conditions and promote wellness. Our approach provides help and hopes to individuals struggling with a long-term illness, while focusing on getting and staying healthy, rather than only addressing symptoms. There are many conditions that may benefit from IVC therapy. Arthritis, Lyme disease, bacterial infections, viral infections, pain after injury, and more.
Thanks to the Riordan Clinic Research Team, there is a great deal of medical research to support the use of IV Vitamin C therapy. It is one of the best antiviral agents available, with the ability to neutralize and eliminate a wide range of toxins. Vitamin C will enhance host resistance, greatly augmenting the immune system’s ability to neutralize bacterial and fungal infections. The Riordan Clinic Research Team has decades of studies, internationally published articles and has sent speakers worldwide sharing this research with doctors. The National Institutes of Health has published evidence confirming Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties.
It has been shown that when cancer patients receive IV Vitamin C they report a reduction in their pain level and they are better able to tolerate chemotherapy. Intravenous Vitamin C is complementary to oncologic care, so patients may continue their conventional cancer therapies if they choose to.
IVC is conditional on lab work and medical assessment that allows for initial and ongoing IVC. Adequate G6PD levels, renal, liver, and bone marrow function are required.
The decision that a patient is appropriate to start IVC is made by our medical provider after reviewing lab results, medical assessment, and health history.
Treatment is to be continuous with infusions of IVC two to three times per week for best results. Maintenance doses may also be considered.
Infusion time requirements and financial requirements need to be carefully assessed prior to beginning treatment to assess whether you are able to continue with treatment in order to benefit from treatment. The infusion can take anywhere from 45-90 minutes.
Infusions are continued until the decision is made by the patient and provider that IVC is no longer indicated.
