Coronavirus: The End Of The World?
**Please note that this article is not meant as a substitute for healthcare from your functional medicine/integrative/primary care physician. This is for educational/informational purposes.

If This Is It…
Is the 6th mass extinction upon us?
This is the kind of crap you’re hearing from the media right now. Maybe not those exact words…but damn close.
Even if this IS the end of the world, we have to ask ourselves, “is THIS the way that I want to spend my last days alive?”
Is this how we want to go out… scurrying around buying ginormous stores of:
- toilet paper
- hand sanitizer
- face masks
Do we want to spend our alleged last days worrying over if we have 400 rolls of toilet paper in our personal stock?
Do we want to spend time looking for ways to help one another survive and thrive?
If you are asking for my feelings, I would say this: I feel that we should be doing practical things to preserve our health & help to spread this knowledge to as many people as we can.
I do not feel this is the end of our world…at all. BUT we should make the most of every second that we have the privilege of breathing.
What Is CoVid-19?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some cause illness in people, and others, such as canine and feline coronaviruses, only infect animals. Rarely, animal coronaviruses that infect animals have emerged to infect people and can spread between people. This is suspected to have occurred for the virus that causes COVID-19. Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) are two other examples of coronaviruses that originated from animals and then spread to people.
Common Myths About CoVid-19
- Spraying chlorine bleach (or using cleaners with bleach or ammonia) on your body or on your surfaces will kill the coronavirus. Think of hospitals & medical facilities. How many times have you heard about or personally know someone that has contracted things like staph, MRSA, or pseudomonas aeruginosa from a hospital or medical facility? What do these facilities use to clean with? Bleach & ammonia. Germs/bacteria/viruses have long-since outsmarted cleaners like bleach & ammonia. So, bleach & ammonia will not preserve your health. In fact, bleach & ammonia will compromise your immune system which will make your chances of fighting off CoVid or any virus much less likely.
- Pneumonia or Influenza (HIB) vaccines preserve your health against the coronavirus. This is simply not true. Vaccines are KNOWN to break the immune system down due to having toxic ingredients like: thimerosal (still in multi-dose vaccines), the actual virus (no matter how small the dose…it is still infused into the vaccine), formaldehyde (very toxic!), aluminum salts (also toxic), pork-based gelatin & egg proteins (cruelty to animals & pork/eggs can be inflammatory/allergenic), and low-dose less-potent antibiotics like neomycin.
- Antibiotics can treat the coronavirus. This is false data. Antibiotics are not meant for viral issues UNLESS it turns into an infection. Antibiotics actually break down the immune system because it removes ALL gut bacteria…even the healthy bacteria that we need to fight off illness & infection.
The Immune System
Our immune systems should be the FIRST area of our health that we should address, BEFORE illness comes a knocking.
Our immune system isn’t just designed to fight off viral/bacterial illnesses and infection. It’s responsible for keeping us clear of things like auto-immune diseases like lupus, MS, RA & JRA etc… But even issues like endometriosis stem from a compromised immune system.
A lot of our immune system resides in our gut. So, what we eat has a DIRECT effect on how healthy our immune systems are.

Functional Medicine aka Natural Medicine
Panic & worry does not help our health mentally or physically.
So, let’s dive into what WILL work because stock-piling toilet paper is NOT the answer. Alrighty, then??? LOL
Please know that this is my protocol, but I have also checked out functional medicine doctors’ protocols too just to see how my protocol stacks up.
Check out these functional medicine docs as well:
If you don’t know my personal story…this protocol is something that I have used to eradicate 2 superbugs that I caught while in hospital.
- Eat whole foods (not processed) that are rich in fiber. Fiber allows us to void regularly (2-3 times a day) which helps us to purge toxins, waste, parasites, mucus, & bacteria. Foods that should be in your diet are veggies, fruits, herbs, nuts/seeds, & legumes/beans.
- Vitamin D3 is essential in ramping up your immune system. You can get this with smart/safe sun exposure daily…or supplement. My recommendations for supplements are below.
- Another preventative or prophylactic supplement you can take is a maintenance dose(what’s recommended on the bottle) of Vitamin C. You will be much better served if you use a whole food version of Vitamin C called AMLA. Asorbic acid that is used for most Vitamin C supplements is not healthy for us. Check out this article from Dr Axe about Vitamin C to see if this supplement is right for you.
- Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands with good ole’ soap & water. Using antibacterial soap damages the immune system & germs have outsmarted these chemicals anyway. Sneeze/Cough into your sleeve. Use your sleeve to open/close doors. Flush public toilets with your foot or with paper (paper towel or TP). Do all you can to abstain from touching your face.
- Make a natural hand spray to take with you everywhere you go…recipe below or above in the “Virus Care Guide”.
- Use natural antivirals like Oil of Oregano, Olive Leaf Extract, and L-Lysine.
- STAY AT HOME! Please, if you have tested positive for the virus…stay away from EVERYONE (except your practitioner) until you’re cleared.
- Seek the advice of a functional medicine doctor or hospital… that is equipped to handle CoVid for any concerns or if you feel you can’t manage things on your own.
- Please wear a mask & cease touching people in any capacity. Again, staying at home or in medical quarantine are necessary.
Don’t Panic or Worry
Worry is like rocking in a rocking chair…it gets you nowhere fast.
Worry also thrashes the immune system. And when we panic, we spread fear and/or panic to anyone that we talk to or interact with.
Going to social media to worry or scare people is not what ANY of us need. So, practice safe social and offer comfort, a kind word, and/or actual help.
Plant-Based Vitamin D3
It’s like sunshine in a supplement. I’ve been using this supplement for almost 2 years now & I have not been sick in over 3 years now.
Plant-Based Whole Food Vitamin C-AMLA
You will like this company as much as I do! They are gluten, soy, dairy, harmful fillers/dyes free. Vegan, certified B corp, and use organic ingredients.
This is a very powerful natural antiviral.
Olive Leaf Extract 20% Oleuropein
Another powerful natural antiviral. If oil of oregano tastes bad to you, this supplement has a more mild flavor.
Awesome for viral issues/illnesses. I coupled L-Lysine with either oil of oregano or olive leaf extract to eradicate my 2 superbugs.
I so understand wanting to preserve your health and being concerned over a new illness. Uncertainty of what’s to come can be unsettling or worrisome if we let it be. People losing their lives, from any means, is tragic and heartbreaking.
However, we need to put this into perspective. More people die or have died from the flu, car accidents, heart disease, overdoses, suicide, cancer… we will all perish one day from something. I apologize for the blunt delivery, but it needed to be said.
As a nice bonus for you, I have put together 2 awesome recipes to help you thrive amidst ANY viral illness.
You gain access to a hand sanitizing spray & “Virus Bomb” rollerball blend recipe.
The hand santizing spray will actually kill germs and protect you as you touch shopping carts, surfaces, door knobs/handles, or using public restrooms.
Your “Virus Bomb” rollerball blend is something that you will roll on the base of your spine & bottoms of your feet 2 times a day (don’t use this more than 3x a day as essential oils are potent plant remedies).
Thank you for cruising by today! I am sending you wellness wishes and all my best~ Christy
