ICU and Home Critical Care (Introduction)

Published on December 18, 2019


When we do things right in ICU and emergency departments we save lives and can decrease the amount of time patients have to be hospitalized. There are many new and exciting therapies that yield better results than today’s toxic pharmaceutical medicines because natural medicines (many of which are quietly in use) address real needs of the body whereas pharmaceuticals do not.

Unfortunately the FDA makes sure that the best medicines are repressed maximizing the chance of mortality under mainstream western medical care in ICU departments. The best medicines are natural. It is important to know the difference between supplementing with natural nutritional substances and using them as medicines. 

In intensive care wards, many medicines are giving intravenously or through injection. With vitamin D, C, injectable selenium, magnesium injection (or given intravenously), sodium bicarbonate, potassium, hydrogen gas mixed with oxygen, sulfur, glutathione and iodine we can change the face of critical care. If one cannot find an intensive care center that will administer these drugs (safe nutritional agents) one can simply administer them at home legally as supplements as long as you do not give IVs or inject unless one has a nurse.

It is possible to duplicate the intensity of ICU administration of these natural drugs at home through intensive medical baths, transdermal application, nebulization and oral intake by loading up one’s water with these powerful medicines. Hospitals today are discharging people faster than ever before, giving patients and their families the responsibility to continue treatments on their own at home. This is partly due to the high risk of infections as well as cost.

In the emergency room and ICU medicines must be safe while delivering an instant lifesaving burst of healing power. Obviously if they are safe and strong enough for emergency situations they are going to help us with chronic diseases and acute ones as well. Instead of operating under the threat of imminent death we treat day after day, all day tapping into the power of these lifesaving medicines, not just when at deaths door but through the days and months until the desired results are realized.    

Vitamin D

Vitamin D supplementation has shown promise for reducing mortality in the intensive care setting. It is one of the newest medicines to be tested in ICU departments. Improved vitamin D status decreases the odds of all cause-mortality. There is a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in the critically ill patient populations. We have several intensive care unit studies which have demonstrated an association between vitamin D deficiency [25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) < 20 ng/mL] and increased hospital length of stay (LOS), readmission rate, sepsis and mortality.

There was a significant decrease in hospital length of stay over time in 250,000 IU and the 500,000 IU vitamin D3 groups, compared to the placebo group.[1] Vitamin D is known to have pleiotropic effects on patients immune pathways and may be uniquely involved with lung immune function and alveolar capillary barrier function. (See Light Deficiency as a Cause of Cancer)

Emory University did a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of vitamin D in critical care. Patients had sepsis, septic shock and other severe disorders. They used 3 groups. One got the placebo. The second group were given 50,000 IU per day for 5 consecutive days. The third group was given 100,000 IU per day, also for 5 consecutive days. The major finding was length of stay. The placebo group’s average length of stay was 36 days. The 50,000 IU group averaged 25 days, and the 100,000 IU group averaged 18 days. High dosages of Vitamin D cut the length of stay in critical care in half.

“I visited a level I trauma care center where they have been using high-dose vitamin D for about ten years. I interviewed the chief surgeon. He is the one who told me that vitamin D is the most powerful medicine he uses. He said, “In my hospital vitamin D flows like water.” They give every patient on admission 50,000 IU and continue that for 5-7 days. He told me they are still in awe of all of the lives they are saving with vitamin D. He said that a lot of the lives are being saved because vitamin D is the most powerful anti-inflammatory agent they have ever seen. He also said that it superchargers the immune system. They refuse to do a placebo-controlled study because he said it would be unethical since everyone is benefiting from the vitamin D. They could not ethically deprive people of vitamin D to have a placebo group,” writes Alan Roth. 

On Medscape you will read High-Dose Vitamin D Shows Promising Effects in MS, and at the same time you will read Critically ill patients who are vitamin D deficient do not seem to gain any benefit from the administration of high-dose vitamin D in the intensive care unit, results from a phase 3 randomized trial indicate. You will read similar studies on Vitamin C as the mainstream struggles to repress anything and everything non-pharmaceutical.

Part Two, Three and Four will be published before the end of the year.
