Organic Healing for Infections and the Symptoms of Flus or Colds

By: natalie viglione


This was the name of the event I helped bring to fruition in Asheville, NC in October (2021). Over 250 people came to learn how to take care of their bodies without UNnatural things and it was beautiful to see! 

As I make my way on my journey getting my Masters in Herbal Medicine, the things I am learning about our bodies and the TRUTH about healing blows my mind every day! Did you know that ALL other systems based on health in our entire HUMAN HISTORY works with DIVINE and NATURAL LAW and ENERGY? Ayurvedic practices, traditional chinese medicine, and so on and so on going back 1,000s and 1,000s of years!  (Except western medicine!!!!)

Recommendation: Look up the study from WHO GETS SICK by Blair Justice PHD (you can find this here), there are lots of things in there that you should know.

And something very important to think on, are your environments (home, work, etc.) LIFE ENHANCING, or are they toxic?  This plays into your health BIG TIME.

At the Optimize Your Health event, we had Dr. Mark Hoch, a holistic MD who understands what healing really means, what prevention means, and the ORGANIC way to heal WITHOUT the use of horribly synthetic drugs that get pushed on humanity day in and day out (especially here in the U.S.). Read more about him here:

If you start feeling the body needing to detox (which is what a flu or cold really is at the core), or if you get an infection within you (e.g.: a bronchial infection or lung infection), be empowered with knowing that there IS something we can do (for ourselves!). 

This is the amazing protocol below that Dr. Hoch shared and now I am sharing this with you (and this is for children as well). If you have questions, you can always contact Dr. Mark Hoch (his website is linked above). 


  • Use the Nettie Pot for cleansing nose  
  • Gargle throat with 3% hydrogen peroxide for 5-10 days  
  • Vitamin C: You will need higher doses so you can use a powdered vitamin C (the best option). If you have bronchial infections, you'll need higher doses as well. You will take 2000 mgs every 2 hours and if you feel like it's getting worse, then change this to take instead every 30 minutes.  Children ages 6-12 would take 1000 mg at same intervals. If less than 6 years old, it'd be 500 mg at the same intervals. Note, Vitamin C can cause loose bowels, so if that happens, you can decrease the doses. Note that Vitamin C capsules are fine too, but you will have to look for 500 mg or larger capsule if you go that route (DO  NOT USE Emergen C or something like this as there is too much sugar in those products and are NOT healthy).  
  • Vitamin D: This improves immune system response. You will always need higher vitamin D blood levels when people reach their upper 30s (in age) anyway, so it's something that's important to take into your body.  During this protocol, you will take approx. 5000 IU twice a day with food (eat food with good fats like avocado, for example).  
  • Zinc: This improves immune function as well. Use Lozenges, Zinc Acetate or Gluconate. Take 18-22 mgs 4 x a day (DO NOT TAKE citrate or citric acid flavored zinc as those are not good for your body). You could opt for Zinc Capsules as well, you'd take 30 mg to 50 mg up to 4 x a day with food. If you get nauseous, just back off a little in dosage. Sulfate, citrate or picolinate are good choices as these are the best that get absorbed into our bodies, and you will take with food as well.   
  • Bioflavinoids are amazing when feeling under the weather. This is a chemical found in apples and onions, for example. You can take Quercetin, 250 mgs of either the liposomal form or 500 mgs of the regular form, and you'll take either of those 3 x a day. Please pair this with each does of zinc. The Quercetin acts as a zinc ionophore that will help the zinc get into your cells which helps to shut down illness within your body at the cellular level.
