Vitamin C Works for Sepsis. Will It Work for Coronavirus? Dr Mercola
Sepsis is responsible for 1 in 5 deaths worldwide each year, killing 11 million out of 56 million people in 2017 alone. Sepsis is also one of the leading causes for influenza deaths
An IV protocol has been shown to dramatically improve chances of survival in septic patients. Giving adult patients 200 mg of thiamine every 12 hours, 1,500 mg of ascorbic acid every six hours, and 50 mg of hydrocortisone every six hours for two days reduced mortality from 40% to 8.5%
Recent research has demonstrated the vitamin C-hydrocortisone-thiamine protocol lowers mortality in pediatric patients as well, from 28% to 9% in the first 30 days
In 2009, IV vitamin C was shown to be a potentially lifesaving treatment against severe swine flu. Even before that, many studies had demonstrated the usefulness of vitamin C against infections of various kinds
A randomized double-blind study published in 1994 found elderly patients given 200 milligrams of vitamin C per day while hospitalized for acute respiratory infection fared significantly better than those receiving a placebo
