We believe that in order to help insure the best outcomes, you need:
1. Use of Certified Non-GMO Vitamin C Powder. Most Vitamin C is coming from China and is a cultured product that starts with Glucose from GMO Corn. This is not acceptable to us and we can't guarantee that compounding pharmacies making premixed product are using Non-GMO Corn Vitamin C. The quality of the glucose used to make L-Ascorbic is dependent on the source of the raw material and how it's processed. It's important to know your origins.
2. DO NOT use premixed compounded injectable Vitamin C because we don't know where the origin of raw material or how it has been handled. It's only as good as the pharmacist's due diligence.
3. Each bag should be DISTILLED WATER ONLY, and custom mixed on site for the patient to insure the highest activity, according to Dr.Klenner's instructions. It takes more time but is worth it in the long run...Premixed C also needs to have EDTA as a preservative to protect it from oxidation...fresh mixing doesn't require EDTA generally...
4. Each bag should be mixed in a light-free environment to protect it from UV and oxygen as much as possible, as explained earlier.
5. Each IV bag/bottle must be covered with a light free bag or foil
6. Never use Sodium or Glucose but Distilled Water Only for optimal osmolarity
7. Drips need to run until we see positive change. Low and Slow is best. At least a minimum of 8 hrs.,12 hrs. or 24+ or whatever we can get. Prices can be kept more reasonable if bags are mixed directly also instead of compounded. The number of treatments will vary with the patient and what the goals are.
8. Patients must eat every few hours to prevent severe hypoglycemia, however IVs work best in a slightly hypoglycemic state...
9. Nanospheric Liposomal Oral Vitamin C should be used simultaneously when not in the clinic to keep serum levels up. Oral powdered does not effect serum levels because of limitations due to feedback mechanisms.
