There are two main schools of thought on germs, microbes and viruses.
Germ theory blames the germs for the disease.
Clean the Tank theory, otherwise known as Terrain theory, says the disease is coming from the environment. The germs are REACTING to the toxic overload.
In Clean the Tank theory, we focus on cleaning up our internal environment rather than blaming the germs.
This means taking personal responsibility for our health. It can be complicated.
Germ theory appeals to our laziness. We find a scapegoat and then we don't have to take any responsibility for the situation.
If a person is getting colds and flus often, they might consider what they are ingesting. Fast food? Junk food? Processed foods? Chips, pretzels, boxed cereal, cheesy puffs? Low-fat milk? Coffee and donuts?
Or are we eating a nutrient dense Weston Price diet? It's obvious what is the real cause.
I suggest taking a gander at Nourishing Traditions. It can save America.
The adrenal cocktail is all about supporting your adrenals and thyroid.
This involves the electrolytes commonly missing along with real whole-food vitamin C.
A simple recipe includes
This could be taken first thing in the morning or during the day if you've been sweating and thirsty.
Potassium and magnesium are common electrolytes missing in people's diet. You can get adrenal overload and feel tired and low energy. The other main electrolyte besides sodium is calcium, so make sure to get calcium and real Vitamin D plus the other cofactors into the diet. I like cod liver oil for my vitamin D plus A and Green Pasture concentrated butter for Activator-X. You can eat grass-fed ghee or butter to also supply extra vitamin D, A and K2.
The adrenals and thyroid are connected. Support your adrenals to support your thyroid.

Do viruses cause us to get ill?
That sounds like a stupid question to most people and they look at me like I'm a Martian or in need of a psychiatrist!
But in truth, germ theory is only one idea about what causes disease. Another theory, referred to as Terrain theory or cellular theory, says that viruses are created by the body to help clean up toxins. In that school of thought, the virulence of the virus comes from the toxicity of the host. It's like maggots eating a dead squirrel on the side of the road. Did the maggots kill the squirrel? What if viruses as part of our "virome", which includes hundreds of trillions of them, created by our cells, have an important role to play in keeping us healthy?
In our industrial society our nutrition is terrible, we eat a lot of processed junk, sugar, hydrogenated fats, vegetable oils, drink water laced with various pollutants and metals, use bodycare products with chemicals, pesticides on the food, air pollution from factories and auto exhaust, particulates, and high amount of medications with their various side effects.
Blaming a virus is a convenient way to hide our "sins" and find a scapegoat. And the pharma industry makes a killing off the idea, so they have a great incentive to push the virus narrative and fear mongering.
Either way, however, whether you believe germ theory or terrain theory, it can't be ignored that real food provides the vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy. Just read Dr. Weston Price's book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration to see how remote cultures ate compared to us today. It's night and day. They were not plagued like we are today and they had healthy babies.
I got to thinking about the Biblical character, Daniel, and wondering about why he and his 3 buddies chose not to eat the King's food.
I found a pretty good short essay on the passage: readingacts.com/2020/01/23/daniel-18-16-what-was-wrong-with-the-kings-food/?unapproved=89263&moderation-hash=4dd1bce81ea9d05dc07c1b6d47a9e9e0#comment-89263
The main verse is Daniel 1:8: "But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the king’s delicacies or with the wine he was drinking, so he entreated the chief official for permission not to defile himself."
The keyword in verse 8 is "delicacies". The root word is "bə·p̄aṯ·baḡ", which KJV translates as "meat".
In verse 12 he asks the official, "“Please test your servants for ten days, giving us just vegetables ("haz·zê·rō·‘îm") to eat and water to drink." The word there could be translated as pulse (legumes) or seeds. So seed-bearing foods, ie vegetables, fruits, grains and lentils?
Ancient Babylon was known to eat many various kinds of meats and stews, some of which would be forbidden in Jewish customs. Not knowing what was in the stew, he opted out to avoid unclean foods.
"Ancient Babylonian cuisine was rich and varied, including meat from cows, sheep, goats, pig, deer and fowl, as well as eggs, fish, shellfish and even turtles. Stews were common, with Akkadian records providing 21 different meat stew recipes and four different vegetable stew recipes." (What Kind of Food Did the Ancient Babylonians Eat?)
They also ate a variety of vegetables, grains, pulses, and fruits. These were likely all included in Daniel's diet, which were a lot of tasty foods and he and his buddies could make their own stews. It says they stuck with this diet for his 3 years while being trained in Babylonian customs. It doesn't say whether he ate other forms of meat somehow, because many kinds of meat and fish are definitely allowed in Jewish diet. So we don't know, but it sounds like maybe they didn't. Legumes would provide protein. Insects in the grains and legumes would help provide fat soluble vitamins as long as you didn't rinse them off.
Another aspect to the story is Daniel is a humble guy with faith in YHWH and probably didn't feel right eating rich-man food or drinking his wine, which was probably associated with their idolatrous sexual acts. He identified more with peasantry class and ate like a commoner. “Don’t incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity. Don’t let me eat of their delicacies.” Psalms 141:4
It turns out, the "peasant food" is actually much healthier. This is like the recipes in Nourishing Traditions.
I like the idea of getting back to cooking our own food and getting away from sugary junk food, fast food and processed foods with preservatives and processed vegetable oils. People are eating the King's delicacies but not getting the raw nutrients they need to stay healthy.
The book of Revelations in the Bible also admonishes God's people to "come out of Babylon so that you do not partake in her sins and in her plagues." We are experiencing plagues of every kind besides a corona virus pandemic, a cancer pandemic, diabetes pandemic, heart disease pandemic, obesity pandemic and on and on. It's all connected.
