Radiotherapy + Intravenous Vitamin C

A patient of ours was diagnosed to have lung cancer. What is unique is that his tumor is so huge that it has encased his innominate artery as well as impinged on his recurrent laryngeal nerves that caused him to have difficulty breathing, eating and hoarseness of voice.

His oncologist wanted to do chemotherapy but he refused. I was able to convince him that at least do radiotherapy to shrink the tumors and buy some time coz intravenous Vit C can work wonders but not overnight.

So family finally agreed. He had 15 sessions of radiotherapy and follow-up scans showed the tumors to shrink so dramatically even the radiologist couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

He still has at least 10 more sessions. I’m pretty confident it will shrink further to millimeter sizes.
