Vitamin C is a potent vitamin with many benefits to our body. Although many studies prove it can cure diseases and prolong lifespan, many doctors are still wary of this unconventional treatment. In hospitals, it is not a protocol to deliver IV vitamin C therapy to critically ill patients.
Dr Ron Hunninghake of the Riordan Institute joins us in this episode to explain the uses of IV and oral vitamin C in several chronic, life-threatening diseases. He also talks about the different studies and trials conducted to explore the mechanism of vitamin C in action.
If you want to take control of your health and dive deeper into IV vitamin C therapy, then this episode is for you.

7 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
‘Vitamin C is probably, as one friend of Dr Riordan said, the most interesting molecule in the world and does things that no other molecule can do’.
‘This is why we're seeing these incredible death tolls is because, once again, vitamin C has not been recognised even though the International Orthomolecular Association has put out several studies and protocols that would work and would really solve the crisis very quickly if they would start using vitamin C’.
‘Science is not about belief. Science is about trying things and trying to see how things work and what we can do, especially in the field of medicine. If it can save a life, do it’.
‘I don't want people to think that if you don't have access to intravenous vitamin C, you're out of luck. I think it's just a matter of learning to dose yourself more frequently if you've got a chronic illness’.
‘All progress in medicine is met with resistance. It's not just vitamin C. Anything new, unless it's a big profit maker in the realm of something that people already know, then it can weave through fairly quickly. But if it's something that's really original and unique in the realm of medical thought, it's a huge, huge battle to get something new in’.
‘We cannot win politically; we cannot win economically. The only way we can win is if we completely show that the science does play out accurately and people do live better, longer. They get better faster’.
‘It's not that all oxidation is bad and all antioxidants is good. It's the cycles that occur within the body that are part of life and you just need to learn how to nuance your supplementation so that you get the best results’.

Dr Ron Hunninghake or Dr Ron, as patients fondly refer to him, is a family medicine doctor. He began his career as a small-town doc in Minneapolis, Kansas, where he first started teaching clinic-based wellness.

Following in the footsteps of Dr Hugh Riordan after the clinic founder’s untimely death in 2005, Dr Ron set about articulating the Riordan approach in seven core precepts:
In addition to his full-time practice as a holistic medical doctor at the Riordan Clinic, Dr Ron has made multiple trips to Japan, Spain, Ecuador, Columbia, New Zealand, Canada and South Korea to lecture on the Riordan IVC protocol for cancer.
Here at the Riordan Clinic, he has presented more than 300 lectures dealing with all facets of nutrition, lifestyle and optimal health. He has co-authored three books on subjects including inflammation, energy-boosting supplements and how to stop pre-diabetes.
