Welcome to Connect, @stimme. I’m sincerely happy to hear about the benefits of your current treatment protocol, but there are still no well-done, controlled clinical trials that have shown a substantial effect of vitamin C on cancer. Some studies do suggest a mild decrease in side effects of certain cancer treatments when standard therapy is combined with high-dose IV vitamin C.

Another factor to consider is that if you take a closer look at much of the research, you will see that these studies don’t use food or supplements as a source of vitamin C. Instead, researchers inject patients with very high doses of vitamin C – much higher than you could get from food or supplements directly – to see minimal benefits. By injecting a drug or supplement, it becomes active more reliable and quickly. https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/vitamin-c-pdq

Mayo Clinic advises that people consult with their current care provider before making any changes to their existing medication or treatment plan. And, when considering complementary or alternative treatments, I feel it’s best to be open-minded yet skeptical – learn about the potential benefits and risks. Here is an article from Mayo Clinic, that might interest you about whether vitamin C can help in any form of cancer:

Serrapeptase is an enzyme isolated from bacteria found in silkworms, and you are correct about it being used for many years, especially in Japan and Europe for reducing inflammation and pain due to surgery, trauma. Again, it is a dietary supplement, and clinical research about its efficacy is very limited. is
There’s also a lack of data on the tolerability and long-term safety of serrapeptase https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/serrapeptase#side-effects

A few members like @steve1948 @hishamhussain @richman54660 @farmerj @spicegirl have mentioned using it for other conditions with varying success (or lack thereof).

@stimme, I think most of us would do without meds if given the option, but sometimes they are necessary. May I ask if you would share your concerns?

Hello, Kanaaz, I don't think you can have heard of the liposomal mixture. This is a process whereby the vitamin C powder (I use sodium ascorbate) is blended with lecithin (I use organic sunflower lecithin as soya is only good if fermented). One uses a 'jewellery cleaner to vibrate the mixture until it is properly chelated. A doctor told me online that 22 minutes is a good time for this. There are many studies which say liposomal (80% absorbable) is at least as good as IV. In fact, there is a video online from a news station of a farmer in New Zealand who was in hospital with swine flu fever and leukaemia. His lungs were full and his life support system was due to be switched off at the end of the week until his sons insisted he had two injections of vitamin c (100 grams) his lungs began to clear and I am informed they continued to give him liposomal vitamin C. There is then a film of him flying his helicopter – cured! Linus Paulin did much to confirm the efficacy of high dose vitamin C against cancer.
As far as such 'research' is concerned, it is not in the interest of highly financed organisations (i.e. the pharmaceutical companies) to sponsor expensive research on substances which will yield them no profit! Besides which, for all the claims on double-blind placebo tests, there are none done on mixtures of drugs yet these are regularly prescribed without thought. When I was the secretary of the local branch of Epilepsy Action, a young lady phoned me to say she had had a heart operation for an arrhythmic heartbeat. I have a book which tells of medication side effects and what to do about it. I checked on the cocktail of drugs she was taking and sure enough, the side effect of one was this very condition. Another lady rang me. I went through the side effects of all the tablets she was taking for her epilepsy and said there were too many. She raised a storm about this at Addenbrookes Hospital until they reduced the drugs from, I think, eight, to just two. Her seizures went from three a day to just three a month. She was very grateful to me! Incidentally, my own epilepsy, which disappeared entirely in 1984 (after taking no medications for many years) was caused by pneumonia from having my tonsils out at the age of five! I learned scepticism (from the Greek scepire, to observe)_of the system at an early age!
One can, of course, always wait until someone in the system agrees but as these supplements are quite harmless I would have thought it worth taking a chance on which is what I am doing with apparent success!
