The Connection Between Collagen and VitaminC

So collagen is said to be the glue that holds our bodies together. Collagen keeps our ligaments moving smoothly and our skin and hair elastic and strong. It is needed to replace dead skin cells with new skin cells.
Collagen contributes to the formation of connective tissue and can seal and heal the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract.  Eating bone broths which are  high in collagen, is said to improve your collagen levels. We can also support our body to convert collagen to a usable protein by increasing our vitamin C intake. When we have adequate vitamin C levels the collagen we eat can be transformed into energy.

In this deep, yet super easy to follow article on collagen Dr. Josh Axe explains all things collagen and clearly states that “In order for collagen to be activated in the body, you always want to take your supplements with a source of amino acids and vitamin C

Another article of interest by W.J. McCormick, MD  which can be found at Selene River Press discusses the fact that “cancer tends to take root mainly in areas of the body that have become depleted in collagen—the elastic connective tissue responsible for “cementing” cells in their place. As collagen diminishes, he says, cancerous cells become free to exercise their natural “amoeboid activity” and move to other parts of the body (i.e., metastasize). Since the body requires vitamin C to produce collagen, Dr. McCormick argues, it stands to reason that a deficiency of  vitamin C enables the spread of cancer—a notion supported by the fact that cancer patients tend to be severely depleted in the nutrient.”

So when you tell your nurse or doctor that you are taking high dose vitamin C each day and the reply is “well at least you won’t catch a cold” don’t forget to tell them about how you are supporting yourself in so many more ways, inside and out.

My breast cancer nurse said the same to me recently, and it just showed me that the world really needs to get up to speed with the importance of increasing and maintaining high levels of vitamin C. She was right, I have not caught a cold or flu since I began taking it…and there is so many more benefits I’m enjoying that sadly many more cancer patients could be sharing in too.

My personal high dose vitamin C and cancer journey.

This photo of me was taken in Janurary 2018, shortly after I was given some very good news by my oncologist.

My own secondary ER+ breast cancer healing journey has led me to create this Liposomal Vitamin C information blog site.

High Dose Liposomal Vitamin C is providing me with increased energy and increased sense of well-being during my own healing journey. I hope my website inspires you to continue learning more about Liposomal C, and maybe even experience just how supportive it may be towards your own healing.

I was diagnosed with ER+ breast cancer in 2014 and metastatic breast cancer to the skeletal system in June 2017. I started on the high dose Vitamin C in August 2017. Many people have said to me since then, “Wow- but you’re looking so well”, and since taking high doses of liposomal vitamin C every day, I’ve never felt better in my life. There is so much more than meets the eye going on when you take high dose vitamin C in the form of liposomal vitamin C. It’s this ‘so much more than meets the eye’ part that has inspired me to create this blog-site.

High dose vitamin C is not the only therapy I’m on, but I’m sure the energy it provides me with is playing a huge role in my ability to be enjoy the cancer healing journey as much as I am.

Last week, ( Jan’ 2018) my oncologist confirmed that my tumor markers have dropped by half and are now down in the ‘normal’ person’s range and confirmed that my bone and CT scans show that my tumors themselves have stabilised.

I’m feeling so good that I am now making time each day to get out there and shout far and wide about Liposomal Vitamin C to anyone who may want to support their own healing and increase their energy levels.

Last August (2017) I was driving for an hour twice a week to get 3 hour long, intravenous vitamin C treatments for cancer at my GP’s clinic. These treatments were gifted to me by a very generous family, but not affordable for me long term, and therefor not viewed as a sustainable option for me. On top of that, the intravenous vitamin C needles were just  ‘not’ easy to administer each time, and after 5 weeks I had definitely had enough needles and too many exhausting intravenous C come-down moments, where my energy completely dropped away.

When looking at ways to support myself during the crash or come-down from the super high dose intravenous vitamin C infusions I began taking several brands of liposomal vitamin C which I was purchasing on i-herb. They all helped me stop the huge crashes of energy, feel better and maintain high levels of C in my blood between intravenous sessions.

However, I soon put on my reading glasses and saw the fine print of what I was taking and discovered that the Liv-on Brand of Liposomal Vitamin C (which appears as  everyone’s favorite)  is made on soy lecithin and contains 12% v/v alcohol. I personally, had to look into alternatives as both soy and alcohol are unfortunately not recommended for people diagnosed with ER+ breast cancer.

So, moving forward, I have created this blog site with easy links to to help others easily better understand high dose vitamin C.

Update: June 2018
It will be 12 months since my secondary breast cancer diagnosis next month, and by early July 2018 I will have discussed my next lot of blood tests, bone and CT scans with my oncologist. I look forward to sharing the test results with you in July 2018.

Update: Aug 2018
The latest CT scan showed ‘nothing’ apart from already seen and stabilised activity within the bones. The bone scan report showed no progression. My breast cancer tumor markers dropped even further. I was already back in the ‘normal’ range, now I must be in the super healthy person range for sure because I’m feeling amazing!
After the above mentioned results came in, I went for an ultrasound to examine areas on my chest wall, armpits and right breast where active lobular carcinoma tumors were confirmed via biopsy last June. There was nothing there. Yes, these three confirmed tumors that originally led me to CT, PET and bone scans and the diagnosis of secondary cancer throughout my skeletal system, have now completely vanished. How exciting! Could the same be happening throughout my body. I believe it is.

Update: Nov 2018
My breast cancer tumor markers have dropped even further. I’m feeling magnificent and I will be getting an MRI of my spine next month to see how my Lumbar region is looking.
I’m not taking as much vitamin C as I once was. I am currently taking 5 grams of vitamin C a day. This is  in one 25ml dose of Life Energy C, from a shot glass, on an empty stomach – in the afternoon/evening/before my dinner.
