Vitamin C: Oral Use

Vitamin C, available in several foods and dietary supplements, shows some anticancer effects, including better survival among people with breast cancer.

.

Vitamin C: Intravenous Use

Vitamin C can be given intravenously to achieve much higher blood levels and enhance its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, with limited evidence of improved cancer survival when used with conventional treatments.

.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant compound found in grape skins and other foods and widely available as a supplement. It is linked to body terrain that is less favorable to cancer growth and spread.

.

Reishi Mushroom

Reishi mushroom is a natural product that may enhance immunity and response to chemo/radiotherapy, improve quality of life, and manage some side effects. 

.

Metformin

Metformin, used to manage diabetes, shows some benefits in lower risks of cancer and better survival, mostly among people with diabetes or high blood sugar.

.

Mebendazole or Fenbendazole

Mebendazole, a prescription drug used in humans to treat parasites, and fenbendazole, a treatment for parasites in animals, show promising but so far very preliminary evidence of anticancer effects.

.

Low-dose Naltrexone

This prescription drug is used off-label in low doses to treat people with cancer, with notable but very preliminary successes in cases where the cancers were difficult-to-treat or quite advanced.

.

Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic diets are high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates, with weak to preliminary evidence of anticancer effects, relief of side effects, and benefits on your body terrain.

.

Hyperthermia

Many types and varieties of hyperthermia (heat treatment) are used in conventional cancer care, and some additional uses are being explored for improving survival and reducing risk of recurrence.

.

Fasting or Calorie Restriction

Calorie restriction and fasting, whether for 12 or more hours every night or occasionally for longer periods, can contribute to lower body weight, blood sugar, and insulin resistance, plus fewer unpleasant chemotherapy-related side effects.
