#1 Way to Heal the Body = Heal the Gut & Detoxify
We need to talk about the basics today. The area no one talks about. And that is: How often do you poop? And why is this important you ask? If you are not having 3 solid bowel movements per day (and by this I mean one easy to pass log or snake in the toilet after each meal), then your gut is not healthy. Since all disease starts in the gut, then we need to look at this imbalance and change the course we are on.
When taken regularly, some frequently prescribed medications can diminish or deplete your body’s stores of important vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. If you take any medications, talk with a nutrition-oriented medical professional about adding Whole Food
Supplements, from Standard Process, to your current regimen.
Contrary to what mainstream medicine would have you believe, there are natural alternatives to prescription drugs.
We are 3 months in – it is a different type of world now, where friends and relatives are afraid to shake hands or give hugs. How does this affect our psyche and our physical health?
Newborns who are not touched can die from failure to thrive. Do you think only babies suffer from this phenomenon? ALL humans at ALL ages will suffer psychological and physical damage from lack of touch.
This WILL AFFECT your immune system.
We need to be connected to each other. Or we may not survive.
I understand the fear of catching something. I understand people are dying. I’m not trying to downplay that at all. This is a very difficult time. I have had people die in my life and these times are very hard to walk through. I’m not trying to say that there is nothing going on. There IS something going on.
There has been a lot of talk recently regarding the rollout of “required” Vaccines for a “safe” way to reopen the country. If you know me at all, then you know my stance on these controversial health additions. I am hesitant to broadcast my views online. However, something needs to be said. In lieu of writing an article about this topic, I want to refer you to a few sources for quality information regarding this subject, so that you can make your own decisions about these health additions for you and your family.
Every TV channel. Every radio station. Everywhere you look has a program, a commercial, or a sign referencing Co-Vid. Even if you want to turn everything off, you will inevitably come into contact with something or someone who is talking about or portraying this scary health crisis. I get it, there is a virus. And yes, there is a more virulent form. Yes, it could be dangerous for certain people.
However, what I hear from my clients is: Fear. Worry. Anxiety. Depression. Panic. Adrenal fatigue. People tired of being cooped up. Restlessness. I would say a good 50 percent of my clients needed to be calmed down. Eighty percent of my clients have had stress on their adrenals whether or not they appeared to be stressed.
We have to talk about the stress. Whether you are afraid to leave your home, or just plain feeling cooped up too long, your adrenals are releasing stress hormones. And the rest of your endocrine is also taking a hit. Maybe you’ve added a layer to your waistline. Maybe your digestion is off. Maybe you’re drinking more than you were before. Maybe you’re just plain tired. Are you sleeping? These are minor stressors in comparison to losing your job or your business. And what if home isn’t a safe place? If home isn’t safe, then this pandemic is a nightmare for you. (Please come talk to me if this is the case)
Here’s something you won’t hear on the news...
Stress causes the immune system to take a nose dive.
With all the fear mongering, the media is pushing people into a state of poor health by causing fear and worry.
We have to support the adrenals. How we do this, depends on the person. It depends on what YOUR individual body is lacking. In addition to the following nutrients that the adrenals desperately need, find things to do that are calming and fun. Get outside and enjoy the spring beauty. Exercise. Hug someone! Not being able to touch each other is detrimental to our health. Babies die when they aren’t touched. Seniors too. Seniors know that they need their weekly massage or they’ll go downhill.
Side note: If you are a healthy adult, your immune system needs to come into contact with bacteria and viruses in order to build healthy antibodies. [If you are immune compromised or have multiple co-morbidities, this part of my talk is not for you.] But if you are a relatively healthy individual, then it is time to build your immune system, and that means having physical contact with other human beings. The longer you isolate, the more you will have to overcome all sorts of immune challenges once you come out of your house. See my previous blogs for formulations to build the immune system.
Build up the adrenals:
B-Vitamins such as Cataplex B, Cataplex G, Balanced B. Methyl folate plus or Methyl B12 help the body absorb B-Vitamins if you have the MTHFR SNP. Stress depletes your B-vitamins.
Adaptogens such as Schisandra, Ginseng, Eleuthro, Gotu Kola (there are many), are balancers for the adrenals and the nervous system. Adaptomax from Nature’s Sunshine blends several adaptogens in one. Nevaton (MediHerb) is for when you’re being pulled in multiple directions and you’re in charge of a lot, and are finding yourself getting irritable (great for business owners or teachers).
Vitamin C is nourishing and healing to the adrenal glands.
Minerals - when you are stressed, you’ll blow through more minerals than you can add back in even with the perfect diet. Min-Tran or Min-Chex are nice calming minerals.
Adrenal glandular - Sometimes the adrenals are so depleted that adding in a glandular can really support those adrenals and give you boost almost immediately. Adrenal Support from Nature’s Sunshine is a good one for this.
Stinging Nettle Seed (not the leaf) pairs well with the Adrenal Support, as it helps to rebuild the adrenals over time.
Endocrine support such as Orchex, Min-Chex, or have a practitioner find the exact remedy for you.
Iodine - we typically think of Iodine strictly as a thyroid mineral, but actually every cell in the body needs iodine.
Ga Adrenal is a broad spectrum adrenal support and covers a number of categories when dealing with adrenals.
Having nightmares? B-1 deficiency. Cheap supplement you can find at the health food store.
Grief or mourning the loss of people: Min-Chex.
AnxiousLess from Nature’s Sunshine
Adrenal Complex (MediHerb)
Any of the flower blends: Five Flower Formula, Fields of Flowers, Ultimate Fields, Rescue Calm, Ultimate Rescue
R&R Acute Stress homeopathic blend
Stress homeopathic blend
There are so many options for the adrenals, that I literally have 5 shelves of remedies devoted solely to stress, energy and the adrenals. The only other category that receives more attention is immune. This is not a coincidence. As I said before, when you’re experiencing stress, the immune system goes down. You want to protect yourself right now? Then eat actual food, preferably organic, cut out the sugar and grains, and handle your stress with life sustaining foods and additions such as the above herbs and remedies that will begin to rebuild what you’ve depleted. Find a natural health practitioner that you trust who can help you find just the right remedy for you.

I apologize for having been quiet the past couple weeks, as I sift through the data, the research, and the doctors who have researched this virus, and the doctors who have researched the research. If you have seen any of Schmidt’s videos on “this stupid virus”, which is what he is calling it, then you will find some similarities between what Dr. Schmidt is recommending, what I have recommended, and Dr. Klinghardt’s work on the subject. YouTube has taken Dr. Schmidt’s videos down, and you can’t even search for them anymore.
In our country we have both natural remedies, but also drugs that have been proven with 100% success rate, in studies conducted in December of 2019 and March of 2020. So, whether you trust in medicine or natural herbs, either way, you have options. There is something you can take to make you well again. I am not licensed to make this claim, but I will let the research speak for itself.
At the end of this commentary, you will find a list of protocols from Klinghardt, Schmidt, and my own recommendations, along with nutritional and homeopathic recommendations from NITE (Naturopathic Institute).
Dr. Klinghardt has been phenomenal helping Lyme and Mold patients and other multiply sick patients for years. He is an MD, PhD. Dr. Klinghardt has a practice in the UK as well as Seattle. Currently he is stuck in the UK during this COVID-19 period.
I have included links to Klinghardt’s recent videos in my reference section, along with Schmidt’s as well. If you’d prefer to watch the videos instead of reading this summary, they are absolutely worth your time! If you are interested in looking through the studies, check out Klinghardt’s slides. He includes them all in the two videos (see references). Klinghard has new videos coming out weekly. I recommend following him.
Alright, let me break down the virus for you. (solutions at the end of this summary)
This is a tough virus, causing anywhere from 0.5% to 20% death rate around the globe. This percentage is based on the area that the data comes from. Klinghardt has even seen death rates up to 60% in hospitals where 5G has been rolled out. And the correlative world map between high death rates and 5G are exactly the same. Think on that one for a bit. In science we call that correlative, not causative, but enough of a correlation to require more research, wouldn’t you say?1
On March 18th there was published a cure for this particular Corona. Back in 2019 just after Christmas, another study was published that strongly suggested that Chloroquine, along with Azithromycin, had 100% cure rate. Forty people in the study, 20 took Chloroquine and 20 recovered from Corona while taking Chloroquine. A few days later Chloroquine was “unavailable” in the European Union. Correlative as well? Hm.2
There are 2 forms of the virus. A mild form and a more deadly form. The mild form shouldn’t cause you much of a problem – you may get a sore throat and stuffy nose. The more deadly form – after that sore throat, it goes down into your lungs and you get a hacking dry cough and a fever of 101.1 F. If your fever gets up to 101.1, Klinghardt is recommending to start his protocol ASAP. If you have the mild form, you’ll probably be alright, you might be tired for a few days to a couple weeks and you’ll get over it with immunity so you “should not” get the bad form, that’s assuming we don’t have a ton of mutations down the road. Individuals without any symptoms can indeed transmit. And yes, there are multiple mutations. It takes 4.1-7 days to develop symptoms. So far, it seems to be targeting the lungs of individuals of Asian and African descent.1
It is transmitted by droplets, which we’ve all heard about, but what we haven’t heard is that people who have not been out and about, not come into contact with anyone, are also getting the virus which suggests it is either spread by the wind, or by other air-spreading means.1
If you get the cramping/bloating first then the cough, then you are likely to have the more serious form of the illness. Characteristic with the more serious form is that the white blood count/Lymphocytes are low, and this is one of Dr. Klinghardt’s diagnostic markers for this Corona.1,2
The media states there is no cure for this virus, because there is no vaccine available. Correction. There is no patented cure for this virus, therefore no way to make money off of it. Chloroquine is an inexpensive drug, as is the Zpack.
A group in China cracked the genome of the virus a few days after Christmas and found Chloroquine in vitro to be 100% effective. Nitazoxamide is an antiparasitic and used for flu has been effective with Asians. Physicians in China immediately jumped on that. And they have completely eradicated the virus. Again…hm.2
An in-vivo study published Mar 17 or 18 by 3 physicians, not white-anglo. All from third world countries who decided to do something about the situation. Chloroquine plus Azithromycin cured Corona in 6 days. There was no evidence in the tissue of the body in 6 days alone. It seems that Zithromax added to Chloroquine caused the COVID-19 to exit “even quicker out the door” according to Klinghardt. According to those groups that have unpacked the genome, COVID-19 contains bits from both HIV and bacterial strains, which is probably why the combination of an anti-viral and an antibiotic works.2
General measures that the CDC came out with include a 60% alcohol hand sanitizer to kill the virus if soap is unavailable. The 60% alcohol solution was proven ineffective against Corona. However, the HOCL spray that Klinghardt is using for the eyes, nose, and throat was 100% effective at killing Corona on desktop/workspace surfaces. So use this as a preventative, spraying hands often, as well as doorknobs and surfaces.1, 2
When you first breathe it in (the virus, I mean), it sticks to the smooth mucous membranes in your nasal passages, eyes, and tonsils/throat for 4-5 days. After that it goes down into your lungs. So it stays up in your nose, eyes, and throat for 4-5 days at which time you should administer the HOCL and Propilis sprays, alternating between the two multiple times per day. HOCL for the eyes, nose and throat. Propilis for the mouth (tonsils/roof). Then the virus won’t move forward into the body.1,2
Alright, so Dr. Klinghardt’s treatment is as follows:
Calorie restriction when you have the bug – don’t force yourself to eat if you’re not hungry.
SHUT OFF THE WIFI! – wifi and cell phones cause problems with the immune system making it more difficult to fight things off. Wear orgonite or safe space products and shut the wifi off when you’re not using (especially at night), and turn off phones at night, stop wearing smart watches and fit bits, and don’t put the cell phone up to your ear. There’s a speaker feature. Use it.
Remember that ACE inhibitors are detrimental – DO NOT TAKE THEM! – and anything ending in -pril; ex. lisinopril). If you are on a blood pressure lowering drug ending in -sartin (ex. losartan) – may actually help
DO NOT TAKE IBUPROFEN OR OTHER NSAIDS!
Schmidt’s protocol for prevention (I do carry all of these):
I also recommend the following, some of which you’ve seen if my previous communication (obviously you take what you test for – don’t go out and buy all of these things):
And finally, reduce your stress as much as you can. Stress lowers your immunity. I like Dr. K’s idea of humming. Not only does it increase nitric oxide according to studies, but it also lowers your stress level and it calms the nervous system. Feel your nose and jaw when you hum and find out which notes resonate your sinuses/nose more. (given we are allowed to touch our faces)
Here’s the thing: I do think quarantine is a good thing to protect our loved ones and to slow the spread, but only because the medical community’s hands are tied and they are not allowed to use those 2 drugs that have been proven effective. They have also not been allowed to use any other natural herb or they will have their license pulled. Regardless of all the research done by herbologists regarding these highly potent natural medicines. US docs have been instructed in the past to never use Chloroquine or they will lose their license. Who’s pulling the strings on that one? I am seeing these stipulations slowly release around the country. Some docs are being allowed to use chloroquine and the president is beginning to disperse the drug. Thank goodness! I do not think quarantine is necessary when we have substances and herbs at our disposal that will halt the virus in its tracks. It angers me when I see our country allowing individuals to die all because we do not have a patented cure. This should not be about making money. This should be about saving lives. This is the reason I am putting this email and post out there. We are standing by and watching our loved ones die because we are being told there is no cure. There is! Forward this on. Spread the word.
As I stated above: The good news is we have both natural remedies and we also have drugs that have been proven with 100% success rate, in studies conducted in December of 2019 and March of 2020. So, whether you trust in medicine or natural herbs, either way, you have options. There is something to take to make you well again.
Eat good food to keep your body healthy, and enjoy this beautiful spring weather!

None of the following information is meant to diagnose or treat disease. I am offering strictly nutritional advice and nutritional supplements to support the immune system and the body during this time.
ST. JOHN’S WORT:
There are different classifications of viruses. The C-virus that everyone is concerned about right now, is under the category of enveloped viruses. What that means is that the virus is encased in a lipid layer (or fat encasing). St. John’s Wort handles enveloped viruses.(1, 2, 3) You may have probably heard that St. John’s Wort is for depression. Yes, it can help with that too. However, it has been traditionally used throughout history for enveloped viruses. MediHerb has 4 options: St. John’s Wort tablets, Viranon tablets, and 2 liquid tinctures. Nature’s Sunshine has 2 products as well: St. John’s Wort and their Time Release version. I am carrying all of these tablets and liquids. If you do not already have a Nature’s Sunshine account, I can set you up with one to get their herbs at a discount, and you could order them direct from the company.
ECHINACEA & VITAMIN C:
Purchase a high-quality Echinacea to set your defenses at the front lines ready to fight. Both MediHerb’s Echinacea Premium and Nature’s Sunshine Echinacea and Echinacea combinations are high quality. Consider adding in whole food vitamin C (not ascorbic acid) to pair with the Echinacea so that these nutrients are absorbed efficiently. You need those 2 items in proper balance for the body to effectively utilize these nutrients. Look for whole food vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is just the protective outer coating of the Vitamin C complex. You will become deficient in the other 4 parts of the complex if you take in high doses of Ascorbic Acid, as your body tries to pull the other parts of the complex together in order to process it. Foods and herbs high in Vitamin C include buckwheat (aerial parts) juice, rose hips, acerola, and cilantro.
SUGAR & VITAMIN C:
A study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that sugar decreases your immune defenses for 6 hours after ingesting it.(4) Focus on lower carbohydrate meal plans for now until we are over this hump. Sugar and Vitamin C compete for the same port on the cell wall. And sugar always wins. If you are ingesting quite a bit of the white stuff along with breads, pasta, and grains, you are going to have a hard time absorbing Vitamin C. Write down what you are eating to track how much sugar you are taking in. Count the carbohydrates in each food. Do this for a few days and you will see a trend. Stick to veggies, protein, and good quality fats. Meal examples: chicken and broccoli, or meat and side salad. Olive oil (not heated), avocado oil, coconut oil, butter, and ghee are good fats to incorporate in. Eat real food and you will be fine. Real food makes your body strong!
I watched Dr. Darren Schmidt’s newest YouTube video this morning. He gives excellent information and links to research articles. I carry all the supplements he mentioned. In addition to what I spoke about above, Dr. Schmidt presented research that Linoleic Acid kills the C-virus.(5) CLA, GLA, Evening Primrose Oil and Flax Seed Oil are high in Linoleic Acid. Get a gel cap of the flax. It’s unstable and goes rancid before it even hits the store shelves. Or grind the seeds and eat them right away. Don’t buy the already ground seeds. Again, rancid.
Dr. Schmidt also talked about the drainage pathways (lymph, liver, kidney, lungs, and sinuses) and the importance of opening those pathways. Making sure you have lymphatic supportive herbs in your regimen such as Lymphonest (from MarcoPharma) or Spanish Black Radish (from Standard Process). Are you having 2-3 bowel movements per day? You should be! If you are not pooping that often, then you are constipated. You want your body to drain all this junk out! If your sinuses are full then it is highly likely you are stopped up somewhere down the line on those drainage pathways.
Dr. Schmidt also referenced research that indicates LDL (the so called “bad” cholesterol) can be anti-viral as well. This is what I have been saying for a while now: These statins are lowering cholesterol too much, and people end up getting sick. Cholesterol protects the brain from heavy metals, Alzheimer’s, helps you make other hormones, and it’s also anti-viral! Cholesterol should naturally increase with age. We shouldn’t be squashing it. A person on a statin will not be making the necessary hormones for all their endocrine glands and organs, immune system, digestion, and let’s not forget intimacy! If you’re having trouble with intercourse, look at your statin!
Thank you to Dr. Darren Schmidt for putting together this video and locating the following excellent research articles!(6) See his video link below for more information.
As Dr. Schmidt said in his video, we have many different companies that are smart when it comes to packaging herbs, so if one product is on backorder, another company may have the equivalent. The point is, there is no need to panic. Keep your body healthy by eating vegetables, proteins, and good fats, and you’ll be able to fight off whatever viruses come your way. The people that have had a problem with the virus are those who have one of the following medical concerns: hypertension, diabetes, or congestive heart failure.(7)
IRON & OXYGEN:
Evidence suggests that the virus interferes with the function of heme in the body and the uptake of oxygen.(8) I have 2 thoughts on this. Take iron and take the CR28 which can support and strengthen the lungs and assist with Oxygen uptake. You will want to find a whole food Iron, not a rock supplement which is what most of them are. Iron from food. Ferrofood from Standard process or the FeMaxTonic from MediHerb are whole food iron supplements we carry.
Lastly, take some Zinc for the immune viral response and inhibiting viruses.(9) Whole food, of course. Please refer to my last blog post for the other herbs and supplements needed for prevention (Vitamin D, etc).
