I was recently informed that the FDA is targeting intravenous (IV) vitamin C by notifying small pharmacies that they will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C. IV vitamin C is only available to physicians, and must be administered by a physician. It has been used successfully, and safely, for many years. So why the FDA attack now?
First of all, vitamin C cannot be patented. It is a natural vitamin, of course. So Big Pharma cannot make much money from it. The FDA wants to put IV vitamin C through the new drug approval process, but because National Institutes of Health (NIH) refuses to fund IV vitamin C studies, this could mean that it never makes it that far. New Drug Approval, and Investigational New Drug approval are expensive processes, costing millions of dollars in research.
This has struck a nerve with me because I, myself, have used IV vitamin C many times. In fact, after I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, IV vitamin C played a big role in my healing. At the same time, this therapy also helped to lower my hepatitis C viral load. It is truly an amazing, holistic treatment.
People use IV vitamin C for many health conditions. Infections particularly benefit from this therapy. Cancer is another illness in which people utilize IV vitamin C as part of treatment. IV vitamin C can also be found as part of the Myer’s Cocktail—a combination of injectable magnesium chloride, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C. This therapy is used for a wide range of conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome and other infectious diseases.
Check out this video that I found on the Vitamin C Foundation’s website. It highlights the story of a man on his deathbed who was brought back to health with IV vitamin C, even after his doctors gave up on him.
The Alliance for Natural Health has done a great job by providing an online form that you can fill out to be sent to an FDA representative asking that the sale and manufacture of IV vitamin C, along with the other ingredients in the Myer’s Cocktail, continue to be allowed. Please take a moment to click here to fill out the form!

Together, we can make a difference. Please, help me spread the word about this. It’s an important issue for all of us to take action on. Thank you!
Yours in health,
