Vitamins a cure?

Patient : I have heard many things lately stating that if you eat your nutrients and take vitamins there really is no reason why you should get sick. I also heard that instead of undergoing Radtion and Chemo therapy people are taking higher injections of Vitamin C and that cures them because it the diease cant handle that. Shoud we just be taking bigger does of certain vitamins, like wate soulable ones along with a healthy diet? I feel like the recommended does for vitamins are outdated. Soo I am trying to figure out because my sister has Rhemotoud arthritis and a couple other problems and maybe the cure might be vitamins but I am not as informed.. Thank you!
