A critical care doctor from the United States ha allegedly discovered the cure for sepsis, a condition which, according to the World Health Organization, kills 8 million individuals all over the world. The doctor declared that the cure is inexpensive and easy to administer. Lab tests confirmed that the results are valid and that the doctor’s concoction might be indeed the thing we need to combat such a complex condition.
Dr. Paul Marik is the chief of the critical care unit at the Eastern Virginia Medical School. During his many years of practice, the physician has discovered that there’s little to be done to a patient diagnosed with sepsis. Unfortunately, in many cases, Marik had nothing more to do that to administer palliative treatments to patients suffering from this condition.
However, the doctor’s out-of-the-box thinking not only saved the life of countless of patients but supplied doctors from all over the world with the means to battle this life-threatening condition. Dr. Paul Marik of the Eastern Virginia Medical School declared that the discovery of this wonder cure was absolutely accidental.
As he recalls, back in 2016, a 48-year-old woman diagnosed with severe sepsis was brought to the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Marik declared that the woman was in critical condition, as most of her vital organs have failed. Seeing that his patient was at death’s doorstep and the options were limited, Dr. Marik took a different approach.
Recalling about a study, the read a week before about the curative properties if Vitamin C, the critical care doctor decided to give his patient an IV solution containing the substance. Marik combined Vitamin C with steroids and gave it to the patient.
After coming to work the next day, Marik was surprised to find his patient alive and well, with no signs of the infection. In fact, the woman’s recovery was so swift, that Marik discharged her two days later.
To determine if the treatment was actually the answer to sepsis, Dr. Marik told his team to use it on more sepsis case. According to the critical care specialist, his wonder mix containing plain old Vitamin C, steroids, and later some thiamin, managed to cure over 150 patients.
Dr. John Catravas, an Old Dominion University researchers, studied Marik’s results and said that his finding is valid, meaning that the cure to a complex condition like sepsis was staring us right in the face.
