Intravenous Vitamin C in Sepsis...Try. 4 July 2017

Intravenous Vitamin C and Infections- Have We Morally Progressed?

I wrote about Ignaz Semmelweiss last year:
“Ignaz (Iggy) Semmelweiss (1818-1865) was a Hungarian physician who was busy delivering babies in an Austrian Hospital when he noticed something peculiar. Women were either delivered by students in one ward or by highly trained doctors in another ward. The problem was that the mortality of the women in the ward cared for by doctors was 500% greater than the women in the students ward.
Iggy tried to solve the mystery. It wasn’t overcrowding- the student ward was much busier. He did find that in the student clinic, mothers were giving birth on their side. In the doctors ward they were on their backs. He persuaded his medical colleagues to change to the side position. But the mortality did not change.
Many other changes were made but still no change. Then Iggy noticed a pathologist who died after performing an autopsy on a deceased mother. He wondered if the woman had passed some sort of particle to the pathologist.
Crazy idea? Maybe…but he came up with a chlorine based solution for the doctors to wash their hands with. Within weeks, the mortality rate dropped by 90%. Problem was, the doctors did not like to accept they were involved. They stopped washing their hands. Mortality rates climbed again.
Iggy was very critical of his colleagues in the media. He was then fired and became increasingly marginalised. He was then invited to consult at the local insane asylum. When he arrived he discovered he wasn’t there to consult…he was beaten and placed in a straight-jacket. Two weeks later he died. Died of the same infection his patients had died of.”

Intravenous Vitamin C in sepsis.
No risk.
High chance of success.
Why the debate?

“More than a million Americans fall ill from severe sepsis annually, and between 28 and 50 percent of them die. Sepsis kills between 6 and 8 million people each year. That’s more deaths than those caused by prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined.
Given the stakes, the vitamin C treatment didn’t seem so crazy. After all, Marik knew that sepsis patients often have undetectable levels of the nutrient, compared to healthy patients. Animals produce increased levels when they are stressed, but humans, thanks to a fatal mutation, are unable to make it on their own. The studies Marik read reported that replenishing vitamin C in sepsis patients could help them deal with shock and prevent organ damage. Why not give it a try?”
