How I Stop A Virus Quickly

Based on data, independent news, and stories from friends, family, and coworkers, it’s now obvious that the so-called vaccines don’t do much against COVID19.

Hear me out. It’s fine. You’ll be fine.

I don’t downplay the virus, but I’m not a screaming drama queen about it either. It can kill people, but cancer is still in the lead. Let’s keep our wits about us.

For anyone still highly concerned about coronavirus…

As I’ve been saying this whole time:



Well I’m not sure what a medical professional would suggest. Nor do I care. Most of them have no clue how to support the body’s natural healing process. “Curing” and “Treating” are different from healing….more on that here.

It’s funny too, how there’s been near-total silence in the media about keeping natural immunity strong. The media IS effectively owned by drug companies, but still. You’d think during a pandemic there’d be some token discussion of health.


Here’s how I personally heal from viral infections. This is what I did a few weeks ago when I had a headache, fever, and chills. I had these flu-like symptoms for about three days, followed by a day or two of tiredness. Not bad.

This isn’t technically advice. I don’t plan to get sued by the FDA or AMA for helping other people find ways to stay well.

Just sharing information.

Take it or leave it!

Vitamin D

At least one study suggests that adequate vitamin D3 levels help mitigate the cytokine storm associated with COVID19. Apparently, this vitamin can help balance our immune response.

I usually take 5,000 IUs of vitamin D3 per day as a preventative when I think I haven’t had enough sunlight to produce it naturally. I live in Pittsburgh, so this happens OFTEN.

If you’re not sure how much vitamin D3 to take, the best thing to do is get your blood checked and work with a healthcare practitioner to achieve balance. If you want more info on that, drop me a line.

Side note: I usually suggest a blood level of 70ng/dL or higher if you’re fighting cancer.

A few years ago, a local naturopathic doctor said she spikes her vitamin D3 intake at the first sign of an infection. I’ve adopted my own version of her strategy and it seems to work well.

When I start feeling sick, I take roughly 50,000 IUs of vitamin D3 each day for two days. Then I go back to my normal dose.


Lysine, according to Linus Pauling and others, has anti-viral properties. It’s useful against herpes, for example. I take 500-1,000 mg per day when fighting illness.

Vitamin C

This pairs well with lysine.

The standard recommendation for an active infection is to take vitamin C “to bowel tolerance”. Meaning, take enough that you notice your stools loosening.

I took about 10 grams per day, spread out, and probably could have pushed it higher. I used a combination of Ester C capsules and a dissolvable drink mix to help stay hydrated.

Incidentally, if you’re ever in real trouble with any systemic infection- viral, bacterial, or sepsis- it may be a good idea to demand high-dose intravenous vitamin C. The Riordan Clinic has ample information about the benefits and use of IV vitamin C.

Quercetin and Zinc

I took a gram of quercetin and 30 mg zinc each day, and for a week after I felt symptoms subside. I did this just in case I was dealing with COVID19.

Honestly? I took quercetin mostly on the recommendation of others. It has anti-inflammatory properties, and MAY have distinct benefits against COVID19. I have not read the science on this one, personally.

A quick internet search suggests quercetin may have anti-viral effects of its own, and may work synergistically with vitamin C.

It’s cheap.

So am I.

Why not.



This is a homeopathic remedy. Hence the weird-ass name.


This is a great homeopathic to reduce flu-like symptoms. If you keep it on-hand, and take it as soon as you notice symptoms, it can be absolutely game-changing.

If you don’t catch symptoms early, it probably won’t help much, in my own experience.

Stock up on this remedy in advance. Follow the package directions when you need it.


Our body uses heat to denature (aka destroy) viral proteins.

So what?

Unless you have a truly dangerous, life-threatening fever, I humbly suggest NOT interfering with your body’s natural defense mechanism. This means NOT taking any fever reducing drugs.

Full disclosure: on the third day of that endless headache, I finally caved in and took 400mg ibuprofen. I needed a friggin’ break!! The fever had cleared by then, anyway.

When I have a fever and chills, I usually bundle up in a few blankets whenever I go to sleep. I try to help a fever, not hinder it.

We had a warm sunny day here while I was sick, so I sat in my truck that afternoon to get the effects of a sauna. Elevating body temperature is healing and detoxifying.


Drink water. Stay hydrated. Enough said.


There’s a lot of talk about COVID19 causing blood clots (same thing with the COVID “vaccines” by the way, because the spike protein is apparently the part of the virus which stimulates blood vessel damage and/or clotting).


I’m sure the medical profession has ways to deal with blood clots, but in the natural health world, my go-to is proteolytic enzymes.

I took nattokinase each evening on an empty stomach while I felt sick, and for a few days after. Again, this was a “just-in-case-it’s-COVID” thing.

General Tips

Here are some things that are generally health-promoting and immune-boosting:

  • get enough sleep (I’d been screwing this up, which is exactly how I got sick this time)
  • get enough exercise
  • laugh
  • get sunlight
  • eat whole foods instead of over-processed junk foods
  • find ways to minimize stress

If you struggle with any of these things, honestly, don’t sweat it. It’s not worth the extra stress.

If you feel like you need to shore up your defenses more proactively, you’re welcome to hit me up for a lifestyle consultation or Reiki session. No pressure.

Take Care & God Bless,
