Vitamin C Cures Sepsis – The Standard of ER Medical Care Has Changed Overnight

“The potential to save millions of lives.”


Dr. Paul Marik, a critical care doctor at EVMS, believes he has found the cure for sepsis, a common infection that gets into the blood and kills 1,000 people a day in the U.S. alone.

Another gift to humanity

“In fact, more people die from sepsis than die from breast cancer, colon cancer and AIDS put together.”

Quotes from the Video

“Complete devoid of side effects..” (Vitamin C/Cortisol/Vitamin B1 treatment)

“the sepsis deaths in this country are equivalent to 3 jumbo jets crashing every single day.. Every single day..”

“In fact, more people die from sepsis than die from breast cancer, colon cancer and AIDS put together..”

“Its the most common cause of death in our hospitals and costs our country more than 20 Billion dollars..”

“Over a hundred randomized trials have been done with all kinds of pharmaceutical agents, and none have worked…”

“on top of 2000 studies looking at sepsis..”

“… we are vitamin C mutants..”

” .. Nobody is going to make any money from this, but it has the potential of saving millions of lives..”

” ..Millions of patients will die waiting for these trials..”

“.. There is data to support using it right how…”

The New Standard of ER Care?

Marik is no loose cannon. Even skeptics of his results acknowledge his expertise. He has authored more than 400 medical journal articles and four books, including a critical care textbook—together “an extraordinary contribution to the literature in critical care,” says Dr. Craig Coopersmith, a leading sepsis researcher at the Emory University School of Medicine.

Any patient can demand Vitamin C now, or tell the doctor/hospital to face the legal consequences.

Important Update (April 17, 2018)

The Studies Are In – Marik’s Is Correct.

Researchers Confirm Malik’s “Astounding” High-dose Vitamin C Treatment for Sepsis. Study

 A retrospective study was conducted that compared 47 patients given the Vitamin C based treatment with a control group that received standard treatment. The results were astounding. In the Vitamin C group, only four patients died from sepsis, representing less than 9 percent of the experimental group, while 40 percent in the control group died. In a follow-up study treating 150 patients with Vitamin C, only one death from sepsis was recorded.

The nay sayers had  said, we can’t risk it before we know it works… This could be a fluke..  lets wait for follow-on studies before we try to save 1500 lives per day.     Its been over a year now, and not only has Marik’s work been confirmed and replicated multiple times,  some of these researchers are trying to take credit!

NEWS FLASH:  (April 17, 2018)

Author Saves His Own Life Using Marik’s Discovery – and his Own.

The world is about to change almost over night.       A new TV show in the USA (TIMELESS) provides a history lesson every show. The latest show (last Sunday night) reminded me that my own rare health condition is the same condition  former US president John F. Kennedy Jr. suffered most of life.   
John F Kennedy lacked, and I lack,  the ability to make an adrenal hormone called cortisol.  If Kennedy didn’t get his cortisol (hydrocortisone is the bioidentical molecue),  he’d soon  be near death.     (Kennedy’s condition was kept secret, and his was more severe, called Addison’s disease because he couldn’t make other hormones. I grant him that, but I never got to sleep with Marilyn Monroe). 

And the important news that what I, the late Kennedy, and a lot of other sick people require is defective in USA  hospitals, almost randomly, suggesting a serious manufacturing error.

The supply of Cortisol (Solu-Cortef) in hospitals – right now – is not reliable.

HMMM! Seems your not alone!

On Apr, 14, 2018
6,401 people reported to have side effects when taking drugs with ingredients of hydrocortisone sodium succinate.

Where you given or taking metformin while you were in the hospital and they gave you this IV of Solu-Cortef?

We don’t know yet if this is deliberate sabotage to derail Marik’s work by hurting his reputation among ER doctors around the USA, or simply a quality control issue because most medication these days is made in China without any American added on quality control.

Well last weekend I (Owen Fonorow) almost died.. Long story, but when my own endogenous cortisol wasn’t working.. My lungs were cramping.. (I had already gone to the ER – and they wouldn’t admit me the day before)   Then I remembered the Paul Marik, MD Sepsis cure includes vitamin C – because the cortisol receptors get oxidized.  I REMEMBERED I HAD WRITTEN A DAMN PAPER ON THE BIOAVAILABILITY OF VITAMIN C SHOWING IT ORAL CAN REACH HIGHER THAN IV/C LEVELS IN THE BLOOD. I KNEW HOW TO GIVE MYSELF MY OWN IV VITAMIN C  – ORALLY!   I used the knowledge in that paper to save my own life last Sunday..

Earlier Research Ignored

We applaud Dr. Paul Marik for putting is patients first and giving Vitamin C a try when  other medical doctors won’t.

However, as he says, he didn’t “find” the cure, it was “found” in 1949 by Dr. Frederick Klenner, MD.

Marik’s invention of adding cortisol (and then Thiamine, vitamin B1) is brilliant.

Other medical doctors and researchers have been collectively brainwashed:  Vitamin C is “only a vitamin, only useful for the deficiency disease. Suggesting otherwise, even by Linus Pauling, is quackery.”

Given the research papers cited  below, minus any other options, doctors that ignore Marik would rather see 1000-1500 people die every day, rather than even try vitamin C.

June 2011: Sepsis: Leaking blood vessels may be cause of infection-spreading condition, researchers suggest

“The repeated failure of clinical trials suggests that some fundamental knowledge is lacking in our current understanding of the pathogenesis of human sepsis.”

Sepsis kills about 1,400 people a day worldwide and is the second-leading cause of death in intensive care units in Canada. Despite intense research, the death rate remains high, between 30 and 50 per cent. Treatments largely consist of surgical removal or drainage of the infected site, antibiotics and supportive care.

“The lack of therapies is not for want of effort. On the basis of promising in vitro and animal studies, many drugs have entered clinical trials only to fail, resulting in the description of sepsis research as a ‘graveyard’ of discovery,” said Dr. Lee, a critical care physician and researcher in the hospital’s L Ka Shing Knowledge Institute.

October 2011:  Vitamin C in Sepsis

The impact of ascorbate administered orally is moderate because of its limited bioavailability. However, intravenous injection of ascorbate raises plasma and tissue concentrations of the vitamin and may decrease morbidity. In animal models of polymicrobial sepsis, intravenous ascorbate injection restores microvascular function and increases survival.

Therefore, it may be possible to improve microvascular function in sepsis by using intravenous vitamin C as an adjunct therapy.

13 December 2010 (Paper Received): Intravenous ascorbic acid to prevent and treat cancer-associated sepsis?

The history of ascorbic acid (AA) and cancer has been marked with controversy. Clinical studies evaluating AA in cancer outcome continue to the present day. However, the wealth of data suggesting that AA may be highly beneficial in addressing cancer-associated inflammation, particularly progression to systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and multi organ failure (MOF), has been largely overlooked. Patients with advanced cancer are generally deficient in AA. Once these patients develop septic symptoms, a further decrease in ascorbic acid levels occurs. Given the known role of ascorbate in: a) maintaining endothelial and suppression of inflammatory markers; b) protection from sepsis in animal models; and c) direct antineoplastic effects, we propose the use of ascorbate as an adjuvant to existing modalities in the treatment and prevention of cancer-associated sepsis.

“Well, I don’t know that there is a need for a randomized prospective, double blind controlled trial when you get evidence of this sort, the value of large intakes of vitamin C ….. [name almost any] disease.”
