It’s both the lecithin and the ascorbic acid which are going to reduce the symptoms of neuropathy The Vitamin C will reduce the inflammation and repair the damage where it can (neuropathy has many and varied root causes). The lecithin component of the liposomal vitamin C contains choline a building block for our nerve cells. Choline protects the myelin sheath and maintains nerve function. For anyone undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy liposomal vitamin C is a sure way to to protect your healthy cells from the nerve damage these therapies can so often inflict.
Cancer alone is enough to deal with without adding neuropathy to the mix.
Here’s a great article that explains all the different types of neuropathy and the various symptoms. The author also lists conventional treatments, symptom management and suggested supplements. Lecithin is top of the list and the author suggests between 1.2 and 3.6 grams of lecithin powder each day.
So, 2 teaspoons of Life Energy C Liposomal Vitamin C each day is going to take care of this nerve maintenance requirement. It is safe to increase this amount to the level in which you feel a sense of increased brain focus and or alertness ( yes lecithin is great brain food). Friends who have suffered from neuropathy tell me they almost instant feel relief and increased clarity from just one tablespoon of life Energy C.

Researchers are not as up to date as they need to be in regards to the latest form of high dose vitamin C; liposomal vitamin C, which is also taken orally, but is not absorbed the same way as an oral or powdered vitamin C. Oral vitamin C is referred to in the current day research in a less positive light than intravenous vitamin C because it is not able to be absorbed into our cells in high doses.
Liposomal vitamin C is different than oral vitamin C referred to in the studies because it bi-passes most of the gastrointestinal system, and enters the cells directly via the phospholipids in which it is encapsulated. Liposomal vitamin C therefor it is most similar to intravenous vitamin C.
So when reading articles on vitamin C studies remember not to confuse liposomal vitamin C with oral vitamin C studies and think of it more like a less invasive safer form of intravenous vitamin C that it is possible to take in equally high doses, in the comfort of your home, without upsetting the digestive system.
Overview from The National Cancer Institute (USA)
- Vitamin C is a nutrient found in food and dietary supplements. It is an antioxidant and also plays a key role in making collagen (see Question 1).
- High-dose vitamin C may be given by intravenous (IV) infusion (through a vein into the bloodstream) or orally (taken by mouth). When taken by intravenous infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken by mouth (see Question 1).
- High-dose vitamin C has been studied as a treatment for patients with cancer since the 1970s (see Question 2).
- Laboratory studies have shown that high doses of vitamin C may slow the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, and other types of cancer cells (see Question 5).
- Some laboratory and animal studies have shown that combining vitamin C with anticancer therapies may be helpful, while other studies have shown that certain forms of vitamin C may make chemotherapy less effective (see Question 5).
- Animal studies have shown that high-dose vitamin C treatment blocks tumor growth in certain models of pancreatic, liver, prostate, and ovarian cancers, sarcoma, and malignant mesothelioma (see Question 5).
- Some human studies of high-dose IV vitamin C in patients with cancer have shown improved quality of life, as well as improvements in physical, mental, and emotional functions, symptoms of fatigue, nausea and vomiting, pain, and appetite loss (see Question 6).
- Intravenous high-dose ascorbic acid has caused very few side effects in clinical trials (see Question 7).
- While generally approved as a dietary supplement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of IV high-dose vitamin C as a treatment for cancer or any other medical condition (see Question 9).

A Personal Cancer Story
“I used high dose vitamin C therapy in conjunction with radiation to a tumor on my spine and continue to use the high dose vitamin C every day. At my oncologist meeting in Jan 2018, my oncologist agreed that the images from my last CT and bone scans showed not only stability but signs of ‘contrast filling in’ and that this could indicate that healing was taking place on my spine. She also told me that my blood tests showed that my breast cancer tumour markers were in the normal persons range. I refer to my high dose vitamin C intake as my DIY immune therapy and it is one of a handful of therapies I am doing.
I have started a page within this blog where I will post articles which specifically relate to high dose vitamin C and its compatibility with chemotherapy and radiation.
