Navigating COVID-19 with less fear (for yourself and your loved ones)

Harmonizing with nature

March 12, 2020

(update Jan 6, 2022: See my comments at the bottom about my experience with a mild case of Covid - thanks, I think, to these recommendations.)

For your consideration…  

Given the eerie possibility that if we don’t stop going to grocery stores, using public doorknobs and touching our faces, we might find ourselves at the mercy of a overwhelmed health care system, how would it feel to know more about the nature of covid-19 so you could feel more confident in keeping you and your loved ones safe and healthy?

I’ve been reading Jon Barron for years and I always appreciate his balance between critical evaluation of the medical literature and a holistic approach to a “baseline of health” to be confidence inspiring.

I summarize the highlights below, but I think it’s helpful to understand these dynamics as Barron lays them out in these 4 articles.

How to proceed w corona virus well informed and without fear

How to fight viruses & bacteria w natural anti-pathogens

How and when to use anti-pathogens and immune system regulators and a list of them to keep in stock

There's no need for panic - a few more covid-19 questions answered

Here’s a quick summary from these blogs:

The BAD news:

  1. this virus spreads super fast (as we’re now seeing) (40-70% of the global population is likely to get the virus)
  2. it’s orders of magnitude more lethal than previous viruses

How COVID-19 does its dirty work

Different viruses attack our immune systems in 2 different ways:

  1. some operate on weakened immune systems by opening the door to pneumonia
  2. others ALSO operate on stronger immune systems by unleashing a cytokine storm in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue

COVID-19 is the #2 type, potentially triggering the immune system to overreact, freak out and destroy healthy tissue.

The GOOD news:

While the virus will most likely infect many (maybe even most) of us, it doesn't have to be deadly, or even much worse that a mild cold (and some will be completely asymptomatic), but it DOES require knowing how to keep symptoms at bay.

At the very first sign of symptoms, start taking:

1) Anti-pathogens (such as..)

  • Oil of oregano extract
  • olive leaf extract
  • ginger
  • AHCC
  • habanero
  • horseradish
  • garlic
  • onion
  • colloidal silver (only for acute symptoms, don’t take on an ongoing basis)
  • liquid zinc
  • (you may know of others)

The anti-pathogens will kill enough of the virus and keep the viral load and the symptoms down enough to prevent an immune system overreaction (cytokine storm).

Safest to stop using Elderberry at symptom onset for covid-19.  It can contribute to immune system feedback loops potentially resulting in a cytokine storm.

2) Immune system regulators

The immune system regulators are said to boost an underactive immune system and calm one that is on the verge of wigging out and attacking healthy tissue.

I hope you find this helpful.  Through this approach, we not only take better advantage of the built-in protection of our bodies and nature itself, it loosens the grip of fear that we or our loved ones may be vulnerable by some roll of the dice to being one of the ones who may have serious illness or worse from this virus. 

I've seen in several places that while the spread and potential danger of this virus is very present, it IS controllable, given adequate information.  

There's no need to panic, and no need to succumb to the fear of getting a virus when it doesn’t need to trigger an overreaction.  

Indeed, it’s the overreaction that’s dangerous, not only to our individual selves, but to The People overall.


(Obviously, I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV.  This is simply an invitation to read this material  and others and see what makes sense and feels right to you.)

(update: Jan 6, 2022)

I recently tested positive for Covid the day after feeling some mild flu-like symptoms on Christmas Day, 2021, and the third day waking up with a slight sore throat.  

The first couple of days I did one dose of swish, gargle, and swallow of the protocol (below).  On the day I felt the deeper flu symptoms I did 3 doses.

By the time I tested positive on the 26th, the fluey feeling was gone, I felt fine energetically, and by the next day the morning sore throat stopped as well.  

I've been essentially symptom-free for 11 days now.

I credit Jon Barron with much of what I have done to keep my immune system in good shape generally, and his suggestions for what to do when any symptoms begin.  

My experience went almost to the letter with what he describes here, so I'd be a data point in favor of these recommendations.

My protocol 

Once I woke up with an unusual feeling in my throat (somewhat different than a typical sore throat), I gargled 2-3x/day w a solution of:

oregano oil

     100% essential oil - 3-4 drops in 1-2oz H2O


    1 dropper in the same water

Barron's Super Vira-Gone (2 droppers in same water)

    fresh ginger root

    fresh garlic bulb

    fresh onion root

    fresh horseradish root

    olive leaf extract

    fresh habañero fruit

    liquid ionic zinc (2,000 parts / million)

    wild mountain oregano leaf oil

    bryonia alba 30X

    pulsatilla 30X+

For the past 10-12 years I've had amazing success taking oregano oil for various bacterial infections, and it's said to a strong anti-viral as well.  From the strength of the taste and feeling of it when I take it, I can't imagine how any tiny creature could ever survive the stuff.

Combining it with these other well-known healing herbs seems to have knocked out my budding covid infection as quickly as it began.

I'll continue to stock up on these things and will use them as soon as I ever notice symptoms of anything like this.  My doctor told me the other day she has seen people come in with covid 3-4 times now, so apparently the immunity that develops after having this can last for as little as 4 months. 

So it can't hurt to keep a stock of these anti-pathogens and immune system regulators on hand for whenever another round of the virus may give your body another try.

This along with doing the range of things you can do to nourish your immune system overall can help you and your loved ones feel safer and healthy going forward.



A bit about Daniel's journey

Throughout my circuitous career, I've always wondered “How do we humans get from where we are to where we most want to be?”

Now I say… one moment at a time.

So I help folks facing uncertainty to navigate it confidently (on piano and elsewhere) so they can be who they are wherever they are and effectively offer their unique and precious gifts.

Turns out sound improvisation can be revolutionary! 🎉
