Through infusions therapeutically effective substances bypass the digestive system and are brought directly into the blood. Thanks to our modern precision infusomats, an exactly defined amount of the medication or substance needed can be fed into the body.

The preparation needed is sought individually and adapted to the respective disease situation. In the following section, we describe some of the most important substances we use.

High dose vitamin C

High-dose infused vitamin C therapy for cancer – an essential vitamin for many cell and tissue processes and an absorber of free radicals

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is involved in many cell and tissue processes. It is one of the antioxidants that can effectively defend against “free radicals” and render them harmless. These free radicals occur particularly in cancer and the metabolic dysfunctions associated with it. Vitamin C also has myriad beneficial effects on the body’s hormone control system, and it is essential there too.

Increased need for vitamin C, particularly in cases of severe cancers and other chronic diseases.

It has long been known that patients with advanced cancers frequently have extremely low levels of vitamin C in their blood. Surgical procedures, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy can make this deficit even worse, and the body’s immune system is gradually weakened. In this condition, healthy and balanced nutrition is often no longer enough to offset the deficit. When this happens, the best approach is to provide the body with specific support in the form of high-dose vitamin C infusions.

Modern research has demonstrated that vitamin C has favorable effects on cancer cells and in cancer treatment.

Back in 1976, Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling publicized that high doses of vitamin C can prolong the lives of cancer patients. Since then, numerous studies have been carried out and published that explore the benefits of high-dose vitamin C in cancer therapy. The effects of this therapy are not just due to the fact that the vitamin C deficiency is compensated, but also to the fact that cancer cells absorb a much higher quantity of dissolved vitamin C than healthy ones and can therefore be selectively damaged. Since consumption of vitamin C via the intestines is limited and inadequate, getting the required amount of vitamin C into the body to damage the cancer cells requires that the vitamin C be administered via an infusion into the veins of the arm. The infusion usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

Patients report a rapid improvement in their general wellbeing, coupled with greater strength

We offer our patients courses of treatment withhigh-dose vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) treatment. The infusions are adapted to the individual and administered over several weeks. There are generally no side effects. Most patients report an appreciable improvement in their general wellbeing and strength after just a few infusions.


Artesunate – effective anti-cancer and anti-malaria remedy

For a long time Chinese wormwood, with the botanical name of Artemisia annua, has been used in traditional medicine to treat infectious diseases. In 2015 the Chinese scientist Youyou Tu received the Nobel-prize in medicine for her discovery of artemisinin (Artesunate is a water soluble form of it), a molecule present in Artemisia that has the ability to kill Malaria parasites.

In the year 2001 Professor Thomas Efferth from Mainz University in Germany published that the same substance, artesunate, is also active against cancer. 

The complex chemical reaction that leads to cancer cell death is based on the oxidation of iron-proteins through artesunate inside cancer-cells.

It is known that tumor cells that multiply quickly attract iron to their cell bodies. As a result, patients start feeling weak and tired and ultimately develop anemia. Prior an artesunate-treatment against cancer it is necessary to replenish the iron-storage in both healthy tissues and in cancer cells, in order to get the maximum effect. 

When artesunate enters tumor cells that are rich in iron, large volumes of “free radicals” are released, which leads to oxidation based cell damage in tumor cells. Moreover, new research has shown that artesunate has a significant inhibitory effect on the formation of new blood vessels (neo-angiogenesis) that is stimulated by tumor cells in order to get more nutrients to their cell bodies. This, in particular, reduces the risk of metastases.

Artesunate is easy to administer in i.v. or even in capsule form, and generally very well tolerated. 

Procain-base (alkaline) infusions

Procain-base (alkaline) infusionsInflammation and over-acidity (low pH of the tissues) are two of the main biological reasons for many chronic illnesses inclusive cancer. 

Through the combination of an anti-inflammatory drug, Procain, and sodium-bicarbonate, an alkaline solution, a powerful synergy effect can remove the biological conditions of both inflammation and over-acidity. 

Procaine is a medicine which, thanks to its effectiveness and tolerability, has been a stalwart of medical practice for over 100 years. Many scientific studies have confirmed the excellent properties of this drug in the human body. These consist of vessel dilatation, a reduction in inflammation, pain relief, an antioxidant, a blood fat-lowering effect, and a balancing effect on the autonomic nervous system. Sodium bicarbonate is the body’s own base. Sodium salt (pure sodium bicarbonate) has long since been taken to remedy excess acidification of the blood and tissues. 

Procaine-base infusions combine the good properties of both medicines in an effective manner and enhance their overall effect. The de-acidification of the tissue is accelerated, perfusion is improved, and painful or irritated tissue is given relief and can regenerate. The infusions can also give pain relief and relaxation through the autonomic nervous system. 

Details of administration of procaine-base infusions in the treatment of cancer and other chronic diseases

Administration of procaine-base infusions has proven to be particularly effective after chemo- or radiotherapy. In these situations, there is serious excess acidification of the cancerous tissues and the body as a whole. This is often manifested as pain, sensory alteration, spasms, nausea, loss of appetite and fatigue. 

Even with other chronic inflammatory diseases, including rheumatism-related disorders or chronic pain syndromes, beneficial effects can be expected from treatment with procaine-base infusions. 

Turmeric infusions

Turmeric: an old remedy that is being newly researched

The pronounced healing power of turmeric (Curcuma longa) was already held in high regard in Ayurvedic medicine. In European medicine, the gallbladder-stimulating and metabolism-boosting substance has been used successfully for centuries. Nowadays turmeric is the subject of many studies and it has been scientifically proven to have a number of healing effects. However, only in the last few years has it been possible to administer this substance in the form of an infusion. We consider curcumin infusions to be particularly important on account of the diverse usage possibilities in oncology, though it can be used to treat many other chronic illnesses as well.

More and more new studies show that turmeric is a highly effective remedy

In many studies, it has now been proven that turmeric extracts have cancer-inhibiting, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidative properties. It has also been shown that turmeric has an antimicrobial effect and thus can be used to fight chronic infections often found in cancer patients. If Vitamin D is administered concurrently with turmeric, these two substances seem to enhance and reinforce one another.

In addition, we use turmeric infusions together with photodynamic therapy (see below under Low Level Laser Therapy and PDT).

Amygdalin/Laetrile (Vit. B17)

Vitamin B17 infusions – prevention and treatment with nitriles obtained from apricot kernels

Scarcely any other element of biological cancer therapy has provoked as much controversy as vitamin B17, which is also known as laetrile or amygdalin. Its proper name is laevo-mandelonitrile-beta-glucoronoside. It has been used for many decades, in some cases with good success. In addition to a wealth of practical experience, there are a number of studies that demonstrate the mechanisms by which the preparations, which are delivered in tablet form or as infusions, take effect.

Some background on nitriles, what they are and how they are thought to function

The seed kernels of many stone and pip fruits, especially apricot kernels, contain a high percentage of bitter substances. If these substances are analyzed, they are found to contain high levels of cyanide compounds. These cyanide compounds are nitriles, i.e. organic compounds with a CN group. Nitriles themselves do not have a toxic effect; it is only after the molecule is split that HCN, or hydrocyanic acid, is released. As with many other substances in nature that can have a powerfully toxic effect, nitriles are also used for healing purposes.

In simple terms, it appears that vitamin B17 works in the following way. It is split by by ß-glucosidase in the body into hydrocyanic acid, which is detoxified by rhodanase (also known as thiosulfate cyanide sulfurtransferase) in the body’s cells. Cancer cells, which are similar to very simple embryonic cells, do not possess rhodanase and are therefore destroyed by high doses of hydrocyanic acid, which they are unable to detoxify.

The best way to take nitriles

Intake of bitter substances through seeds and kernels was common practice among primitive people. Some people attempt to do the same thing by eating lots of apricot kernels. It is difficult with this method, however, to achieve a sensible dose. In capsule form or as infusions, precise doses can be administered that can be expected to provide a therapeutic effect, for example on cancer cells.

It may be useful to combine the use of B17 with other therapeutic procedures. Medicines to detoxify the liver and enzyme preparations, for example, can also be helpful.

Ozone therapy

Ozone is a disinfectant, stimulates circulation activates, and regenerates

A compound formed by three atoms of oxygen, ozone (O3) is particularly energy-rich. In medical applications, ozone is known for its disinfection properties, having bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal effects. Thus, it is used to disinfect wounds and to treat various skin diseases.

Furthermore, Ozone stimulates blood circulation, activates the immune system, and is regenerating. With many chronic illnesses, this effect is a very important element for restoring equilibrium. Moreover, the body’s immune functions can be supported. Treatment with ozone has therefore been a stalwart of complementary medicine for a long time.

Apart from being used to treat external wounds and rectal administration, we use major autohemotherapy with ozone as a supplementary treatment in cancer therapy. Thus, for example, it has a positive effect in combination with high-dose vitamin C infusions. Rapid improvement of the person’s general condition can often be observed.

We would be happy to advise you and to tell you about other illnesses that this method can treat effectively.

Intravenous oxygen therapy (Oxyven) – every cell in the body requires oxygen for life

Our body is dependent on a supply of oxygen for a variety of processes. When oxygen is lacking, various diseases can quickly develop. The delivery of medical oxygen has been developed by Dr. H. S. Regelsberger in over 30 years of research into a safe, practical method of treatment with few side effects. Dr. Regelsberger called the introduction of medical oxygen through intravenous means in a slow and precisely dosed manner (1-2 ml/min) the process of Oxyvenation.

A large number of mechanisms are currently being researched by means of which intravenous oxygen therapy can have a therapeutic effect. An approximately eightfold increase in the formation of the perfusion-promoting hormone prostacyclin leads to significant vasodilatation throughout the body. Formation of certain white blood cells (eosinophils) is also increased, giving rise to a significant reduction in inflammation. Edema is flushed away, clots are counteracted, and the immune system is given a considerable boost.

A variety of applications of oxygen therapy for various chronic diseases and cancer

Intravenous oxygen therapy has a beneficial effect on all conditions associated with chronic oxygen depletion. This is the case with perfusion problems, potency problems, states of exhaustion, sleeping disorders, neuro-dermatitis and other skin diseases, polyneuropathies, memory problems, consequences of stroke, high blood pressure, consequences of heart attacks, acute hearing loss and dizziness, tinnitus, and macular degeneration. In cases of cancer, oxyvenation is ideal as a complementary treatment with tumor therapy and also helps to alleviate the side effects of chemo- or radiotherapy.

The treatment is carried out while the patient is lying down. Oxygen is introduced via cannulas that are so thin that they are barely perceptible as they enter the skin. The oxygen is fed in at a very slow rate, at just 1-2 ml per minute. In the beginning, the treatment lasts 10 minutes and progresses up to 30 minutes. A short period of rest should be taken after the treatment. A course of treatments usually includes around 20 infusions.

Dichloroacetate (DCA)

The drug dichloracetate (DCA) was originally used as a remedy for rare metabolic disorders (lactic acidosis) in children. Then a research team from Canada discovered that DCA is also effective against cancer cells. They found that it can restore disrupted mitochondrial function in cancer cells. As we know, cancer cells do not use mitochondria to produce energy (they are “switched off” in cancer cells), but rather ferment sugar in the cell.

It appears that DCA can help reinstate disrupted mitochondrial function. Due to the anaerobic energy production, the metabolic function of cancer cells can readapt to aerobic energy production in the mitochondria. As a result, the necessary self-destruction of a cell (apoptosis) can reoccur. The body is put in a position to recognize degenerate cells and eliminate them.

It makes sense to combine this substance with other methods that have a similar effect, such as dietary changes, hyperthermia, and so on.


Antioxidants play an important part in cancer therapy. They can protect healthy cells and disarm free radicals, which emerge for example during radiation or chemotherapy. Very wellknown antioxidants are various vitamins such as A, C, E, selenium, the substance discussed here glutathione.

Gluthatione – detoxification and cell activation

Glutathione has the special ability to strengthen liver function and permit comprehensive detoxification of the body. This is important with pain syndromes, states of exhaustion, and cancer. The body is relieved, the activity of the immune cells is enhanced, and healthy tissue is protected.

Combination treatments make sense

Glutathion is particularly effective when it is combined sensibly with other measures, including a liver-cleansing diet, healthy water, a liver pack, teas, and specific therapies such as heat treatments and magnetic field therapies.
