Doctor Claims to Cure Sepsis Using Vitamin C, Steroids

A doctor at Eastern Virginia Medical School says he believes he found a cure for the life-threatening infection, sepsis. His innovative treatment breakthrough - a product of medical intuition and serendipity - promises to revolutionize sepsis care worldwide and produce results that are nothing short of astonishing. "We have completely changed the natural history of sepsis".

As he recalls, back in 2016, a 48-year-old woman diagnosed with severe sepsis was brought to the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Dr. Marik refined the possible cure by adding Thiamine.

Sepsis, an infection that kills millions worldwide each year and is the third leading cause of death in the United States, may have finally met its match.

The designated entities will also be ineligible for any assistance program of the USA government, said the State Department. However, the evidence is not definitive; therefore, they may be there for other purposes as well, they said .

"This is an intervention that is readily available, cheap and has the potential to save millions of lives", said Dr. Marik. He was sure that, unfortunately, the woman was about to die.

The available treatment options were running out. After combining Vitamin C and Hydrocortisone in the patient's IV, he left fully expecting the patient to not make it through the night. Thiamine is added because it assists cells to absorb vitamin C. An added benefit is that the mixture is low-priced to manufacture, coming in around $60 per treatment. Marik combined Vitamin C with steroids and gave it to the patient.

Within hours, the patient was reportedly recovering. In two weeks, Dr. Marik approved that the woman should be moved out of the intensive care unit. Twice more the patients recovered. Published in the journal Chest, Marik's paper claimed that only four of the 50 patients he treated died in the hospital and all those deaths were caused by the underlying disease and not from the sepsis. In this way, this cure became a standard procedure for Dr. Marik and his staff.

Since then, he has used it to treat 150 sepsis patients.

The results: confirmed, according to Dr. John Catravas, the Interim Executive Director and Sentara Endowed Chair of the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at ODU.

Now, the next stage is to begin a trial, surveying the effects of this treatment on a much larger number of people.
