Introvenous vitamin C


Diagnosed 4 years ago with stage 3 COPD, 50% capacity, now 47%. I take Incruse Elipta I walk 7 k a day total, 1 1/ 2 k straight up a steep mountain road. I feel pretty good, a little breathless if I go too fast.

I have now had two sessions of introvenous vitamen C. 2 little bottles once a week for 4 weeks, 4 months a part. I have more energy and have not had any cold or infection for 8 months. This has been during our rainy season when everyone gets sick. I live in Costa Rica. I intend to continue with vitamin C treatments 3 times a year.

I haven’t read about this treatment for COPD and wonder if anyone else has tried it. A doctor MD who does Homeopathy on the side recommended it.

Never heard of IV vitamin C. What is the benefit over swallowing large dosages?

You cannot ingest large amounts of vitamin C or you will get diarrhea. Introvenous has to be the method. Energy, fewer aches and pains and stronger immune system is what I have read. My experience is higher energy and no respiratory illness .

im on 50% and just been put on incruise elipta 55.
