Research shows that: “When Vitamin C comes into contact with a skin cancer or external tumor (e.g. basal cell carcinoma), it hardens the tumor and forms a crust, such that the scab falls off in two weeks or so depending on how big the tumor is and how aggressive you get with the Vitamin C. “
If I was in a situation where I had basil cell carcinoma I would no doubt integrate the following approach:
The solution is made by adding 1/8 tsp (teaspoon) of pure Vitamin C crystals to 1 tsp of water (a ratio of 1:8). Add any more and the Vitamin C won’t dissolve. This should make enough solution to last all day. If more is made than is needed it needs to be stored in a closed container in the refrigerator.
Also another option is: Put 1 or 2 ounces of water (30-60 ml) in a small glass bottle and add 1 tsp of Vitamin C for each ounce of water (that is a 1:6 ratio). If after mixing you don’t see any crystals on the bottom then add more Vitamin C until the water won’t dissolve anymore. This insures a saturated solution of Vitamin C.
The process is to apply the mixture (using a cotton swab or Q-Tip) to the tumor. This should be done 2 or 3 times a day. It is best to put a bandage or other cotton covering over the tumor after each application if possible.
On the skin cancer the bandage is just to keep the lesion wet with Vitamin C until the next application.If there is an infection the bandage should be changed more often. Ascorbate is also anti-infective and is used topically and via IV for burn patients.
Research shows that it is critical to use a mineral ascorbate form of Vitamin C (e.g. sodium ascorbate), rather than ascorbic acid.
