Dear Readers:  

Having gone through cancer treatment last year, I am a very big proponent of treating diseases as naturally as possible.  I came across this article about Sepsis (life- threatening condition that arises when the body's response to infection injures its own tissues and organs).   Below is excerpt from the article with the link to the whole article.

Norfolk doctor found a treatment for sepsis. Now he's trying to get the ICU world to listen.

The patient was dying.

Valerie Hobbs, 53, was in the throes of sepsis – an infection coursing through her veins that was causing her blood pressure to tank, her organs to fail and her breathing to flag.

“When you have a person that young who’s going to die, you start thinking, ‘What else can we pull out of the bag?’ ” said Dr. Paul Marik, who was on duty that day in the intensive care unit of Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

In this case, he reached for Vitamin C.

Marik, chief of pulmonary and critical care at Eastern Virginia Medical School, had recently read medical journal articles involving the vitamin, and decided to order IV infusions of it, along with hydrocortisone, a steroid, to reduce inflammation.

Then, he went home.

The next morning, Hobbs had improved so much she was removed from four different medications used to boost her blood pressure. Her kidney function was better. Her breathing eased.

Three days later, she left the ICU.

That was in January 2016. Today, Hobbs is back at her home in Norfolk.
