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.
But what we are not looking at, is how easy it is to flush the body of these viruses and these toxins. The body, given the correct nutrients can heal itself. I truly STILL believe this. And we have seen across the country with both MD’s and Naturopaths, and even here at Custom Wellness, that clients with one of these strains of viruses quickly recovers when they have the correct nutritional supplementation for drainage and the immune system.
What does the word virus really mean? It is not a living organism. The word virus literally means poison. Somewhere in our history, we decided that it meant some type of “bug” attacking our body. But is it?
I am heartbroken when I see people across the globe dying from this, when we have the tools at our disposal, growing on planet earth. But these tools, these plants, these herbs, these nutrients are not patented. They do not make anyone any money at all. They are just growing here on our planet for our health and well-being.
We need to support the earth, clean up our habits of filling the air and the earth with our chemicals and toxins, so that the microbiome of the soil produces healthy food for us to eat. This in turn will support a healthy microbiome in our guts too. The gut is the first line of defense for our immune system. A healthy gut will support a healthy body. (more on this in another blog)
The number of people who have died from suicide in the past 3 months is off… the… charts. It is now touching almost every family. This is the reason for this blog. Whether you come into the office for a Massage, Reflexology, Gua Sha, Craniosacral or Hot Stone Session… Or you rub your hubby’s back or feet… Or make sure you are healthy, wash your hands, wear a mask and embrace your mom or dad who have been in isolation for 3 months, what I want you to get out of this, is the need for touch. Please, please, make sure everyone in your family is getting a hug, make sure everyone in your family has the interaction and the connection of human touch right now.
Mark, our Reflexologist and Bodyworker, says that elderly in nursing homes know they need to get a massage weekly to stay healthy. They know they need that touch. So, if you have to shower before heading over to mom and dad’s, do it. And if you both feel the need to shower after too, do it. Because it is important to not distance yourself socially all the time. Perhaps physical distance is okay most of the time, but social distance? It concerns me that we are using those exact words.
In summary, eat organic foods, reduce the chemicals, be kind to the earth, be kind to each other, and give someone a hug today!

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).
