High Dose Vitamin C
High dose vitamin C has been recognized as a preventative therapy for many
issues. Humans are one of just a few mammals that don't produce Vitamin C in our

our High dose C program, we check for these deficiencies with a simple blood test
that has a 24–36-hour turnaround before exposing our patients to Very High Dose
Vitamin C therapy.
