Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C as it's more commonly known has been used for decades to treat a wide range of medical conditions ranging from chronic fatigue, Lyme Disease and Epstein-Barr virus to more acute infections such as Influenza, Cellulitis, Pneumonia and Sepsis as well as an adjunctive cancer therapy.
Vitamin C is unique because at lower doses (below 25,000mg) it is a powerful anti-oxidant. The anti-oxidant capabilities aid in optimal cellular functioning, energy production and help combat the oxidative stress incurred from daily living.
While at higher doses (25,000mg and above) it becomes a pro-oxidant and is very good at fighting infections both acute and chronic as well as eradicating cancer cells. A critical care physician in Virginia added Vitamin C and steroids to the usual treatment of patients with sepsis, and had amazing results with increased survival rates far in excess of the national averages. Now a multi-center trial is going on to try an replicate the results on a larger scale.

Cancer cells react uniquely to intravenous Vitamin C by up taking 5x more Vitamin C than our regular tissue. Inside the cell cancer cell Vitamin C converts to hydrogen peroxide, and as cancer cells don't have the normal intracellular organelles to handle hydrogen peroxide they are destroyed. Healthy cells do not respond this way to vitamin C. Thus, the intravenous administration of high doses of vitamin C can target and destroy cancer cells in the body while not harming healthy cells.
