Against COVID-19 in order of progression of the disease

Reminder: I am not a conventional licensed allopathic medical doctor. I am a practitioner of holistic medicine. I am sharing here my experience and knowledge about the use of home remedies, which can prevent or enhance greatly the use of conventional medicine.

• STAY WARM.  Stay away from cold winds and drafts.  Protect your throat and neck.

• High dose of Vitamin C 1gr. (1000 mg) 3 x daily.

• Hot ginger tea during the day and a grog before bed (juice of 1/2 lemon, hot water, honey, 1 shot of rum).

• Steaming the house nonstop with a blend of essential oils of eucalyptus (3 drops), mint (2 drops), thyme (1 drop).

• When you go out, spray some Cologne water or rub some essential oil  on your mask, yourself, and your car.

If you get any kind of symptoms:

• Homeopathic remedy: Oscillococcinum (1 full dose 3 x daily)

• If still congested: stop oscillococcinum and take Yin Chiao pills (3 – 5 pills 3 x daily) or take grapefruit seed extract.

• Steaming with essential oils of eucalyptus, mint and thyme directly through your nose and mouth 20 minutes 2 x daily.

• In case of fever: double Vit. C intake + hot and strong ginger tea or grog + Sauna or blanket to break a sweat. If there is high fever more than two days, take the fever down with pharmaceuticals.

• If there is bronchitis turning into pneumonia: double again Vit. C intake + pharmaceuticals (antibiotics) + mustard seeds hot cataplasm on the chest to loosen up phlegm + cupping on the upper back.

• Take an herbal expectorant (consult your health food store and local Asian food store)

• I also recommend acupuncture at each level of treatment: before feeling sick to enhance the immune response, while being sick to enhance the effect of all remedies, and after being sick to help a faster recovery.


Living in times of flu epidemics in populated areas we have to assume that we caught the virus, called COVID-19, and that we are carrying it with us all the time. This is a virulent kind of flu virus that has already taken many victims. Although there’s a sentiment in some of the medical community and the media that COVID-19 is not the flu because it is a novel virus (meaning a new virus), the fact is, it is a NOVEL strain of the FLU. We have to take it seriously and be efficient in eradicating it. Being a virus, it is not affected by conventional medications such as antibiotics. It can only be neutralized by antiseptics. Let’s neutralize it, on, around, and in ourselves with disinfectants to prevent it from reproducing and spreading.

Unfortunately, conventional disinfectants, even those found in pharmacies, are toxic if taken internally. Even the otherwise safe hydrogen peroxide, at a safe concentration, is loaded with heavy metals to stabilize it sufficiently to make it industrially marketable worldwide under any climate and traveling conditions. So, to take internally, the only relatively safe disinfectant you can buy is the alcohol in your favorite hard liquor drink, and no doctor will ever tell you to use it as a medicine!

Fortunately, you don’t have to become an alcoholic in order to avoid getting the flu. There are other very potent natural antiseptics we can find in a non-toxic form, if used wisely. Only remember that even pure water, taken in excess, can also kill you! In addition, there are many ways to strengthen your body’s resistance with a healthy lifestyle, diet, and with food supplements that efficiently enhance your vitality and enable your immune system to repeal and neutralize viruses: Go for the old-time home remedies and the health food store.

When the virus gets in your system, it needs several days to incubate before it can reproduce to the point of making you very sick. It incubates first in your throat and your nasal cavities.

• At this point you don’t have any symptoms at all and you might even feel quite good. However, this is the time where you are the most contagious! Be mindful and respect the rules of social distancing, and thorough hygiene.

• If you gargle with a disinfectant and breathe a blend of essential oils of thyme, mint and eucalyptus (at the proportion of 1 drop of thyme, 2 drops of eucalyptus, and 3 drops of mint), it will eliminate and repeal the virus during its incubation period and you might be able to escape the contagion unharmed. Put some of that blend on your hands, mask or scarf, around your nose and mouth, but be careful not to touch your eyes with it. It is not dangerous but can be very painful for a few minutes.

Avoid mucus producing foods such as pasteurized dairy, sugar, especially in drinks such as sodas and reconstituted fruit juices from concentrates, starches such as commercially produced boxed cereals, wheat, corn, potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, and their derivatives. Don’t surcharge your system with overeating. When in excess, even the best food ends up corrupting inside your body, making your digestive system overwork. You want to save your energy for your defense system.

I used to have asthma and I used to catch flus that turned into bronchitis, keeping me incapacitated for weeks. I got rid of asthma years ago by learning how to use essential oils and to avoid getting the flu with my own great grandma’s herbal knowledge and ancestral wisdom about traditional healing (she was the “sage-femme”, the mid-wife – healer of her village in Southern France). I haven’t caught the flu for over ten years, and this is without taking flu vaccinations (I don’t like the neurotoxicity added to the vaccines for preservation). The last few times I caught the flu I was sick just for a few days. I stopped all medications for asthma and I only keep a small inhaler in case of emergency, especially when I travel.

I developed a simple protocol to avoid catching the flu and to get rid of it rapidly if I do, based on home remedies, good hygiene, and a healthy life style. This is the protocol I am sharing here with you. Please feel free to share with all your co-workers, neighbors, friends and family.

If we are smart, this hard epidemic can teach us to never, ever catch the flu again if we are able to learn from it and adopt the right strategies.
