Title: Besides IV Vitamin C
Post by: danialthomas on March 06, 2021, 03:55:21 pm
People often ask me, “Besides IV vitamin C, what other types of alternative IV’s are being used to treat cancer?” A pro-oxidative compound that may be more potent than intravenous vitamin C is intravenous sodium selenite, augmented with intravenous ozone and oral nicotinamide, pentoxifylline, and sulindac. This must be administered through a chest port and not an arm vein.

On another front, there are two medicinal plant compounds that look extremely promising. Found in eggplant, they are called solamargine and solasonine. Based on scientific research, these compounds appear to have the following characteristics:

• Induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis (cell death) in a wide variety of malignancies.

• Greater cytotoxic effects on cancer cells compared to many standard chemo-therapy drugs with negligible effect on normal cells.

• Ability to treat tumors that have become multi-drug resistant.

• Inhibits the ability of tumors to metastasize by blocking epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT).

• Targets active and quiescent (dormant) cancer cells, as well as cancer stem cells. Chemotherapy is designed to affect rapidly proliferating cells. To resist the effects of chemotherapy, cancer cells can stop proliferating and go into a state of dormancy, and later “wake up” and begin proliferating again.

• May stimulate lasting immunity against cancer.

Solamargine and solasonine are not commercially available retail or compounding pharmacies. Because of this, we are having medicinal chemists custom synthesize these compounds and purify them to pharmaceutical levels. To assure full absorption and prevent possible chemical alteration by stomach acids and gut bacteria from oral administration, solamargine and solasonine will be administered intravenously.
