Are doctors ready to save half a million people a year who die from Sepsis? Maybe but the lead footed FDA is certainly not. We now have a game-changer for a condition that occurs in more than 1.5 million people a year in America, with a 28 percent to 50 percent fatality rate, according to the National Institutes of Health. Sepsis rates are even higher in third-world countries. Sepsis, a systematic inflammatory response to infection, is one of the most serious diseases in an ICU. Although comprehensive therapy has been developed for it, sepsis is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
Science Daily reports, “With infectious diseases, it is often not the pathogen itself, but rather an excessive inflammatory immune response (sepsis) that contributes to the patient’s death, for instance as a result of organ damage. On intensive care units, sepsis is the second-most common cause of death worldwide. In patients with a severely compromised immune system specially, life-threatening candida fungal infections represent a high risk of sepsis.”
Dr. Paul Marik made headlines across the globe with a sepsis treatment he believes is saving lives, however he says he must “lie low” about the controversial treatment. Dr. Marik said the response by patients’ physicians has been about half and half, with some willing to try, and “the other half saying it’s complete and utter nonsense.” He is administering a common sense basic medicine approach that puts out cysteine storms with IV infusions of vitamin C, hydrocortisone and thiamine.
When we focus on Dr. Marik’s work it is impossible not to see the merits of his practice and how many lives could be saved if ICU doctors followed his lead. “It cheap, its simple, its easy to do. You really have nothing to lose. It is exceedingly safe. At the dosages we use all three drugs are completely devoid of side-effects. How many drugs do we use that have no side-effects? Sometimes we just have to see that something works. We don’t have to do a randomized trial to see parachutes work when people jump out of planes to see that they work,” says Dr. Paul Marik in the above video.
He is saving Sepsis patients lives with a protocol of natural medicines:
The precise protocol used was 200 mg of thiamine every 12 hours, 1,500 mg of ascorbic acid every six hours, and 50 mg of hydrocortisone every six hours. However, it is only the combination that protects the cells. If anyone is given just one of these three ingredients alone it does not work. Its the combination that works in case after case.
Published online in December 2016 in Chest, an American College of Chest Physicians medical journal, Dr. Marik’s study showed that in 47 patients with sepsis treated in Norfolk General’s ICU in 2016, four died, an 8 percent mortality rate. Of those four, none died of sepsis but rather the conditions that led to sepsis in the first place. The previous year, 19 of the hospital’s 47 septic patients died, a 40 percent rate. Dr. Marik has treated 700 patients with the protocol, and while some have died, it’s usually been because of the underlying disease, such as cancer, that led them to a septic state.
