A mom in Florida is not waiting on a solution to the Coronavirus Outbreak that has now spread to over 200 thousand people worldwide. She is taking matters in her own hand and swears that her approach is far better than what most people are doing now.

While the CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. Jamie, a mother of 2 is responding in her own fashion and is claiming her household hasn't so much as caught even a common cold in over 4 years. She claims that she had found a natural way to kill bugs and viruses in more ways than one after a series of colds and flus hit her family 5 years ago.

"I was tired of the doctor’s office, I was tired of my kids bringing home the flu, and I was tired of depending on modern medicine to solve the problem for me."
says Jamie. "Look, I found something that works for us. I am not worried about the Coronavirus hitting our family because I have 3 ways to fight back in just 1 bottle of botanical oils. It is so potent that it kills germs on contact, it rids the air of contaminants and you can rub it into your skin to greatly boost your immune response. Even if you do catch a virus, the symptoms and time it affects you experience, are greatly reduced".

Jamie shows off one of the ways she fights back agaisnt the flu.

The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic as people prepare for self-quarantine, every day products are flying off the shelves making it harder and harder to get basic items. It is expected that the U.S. alone will see the number double and triple over the next year.

Millions Worried as Vaccines In Limbo

There are several dozen ongoing research efforts to develop a coronavirus vaccine, as the World Health Organization listed 35 candidates in a recent report.

A top US health official has said it will take at least 12 months to 18 months to determine if any vaccine is safe and effective against this ongoing pandemic, which has killed more than 4,300 people and infected upwards of 120,000

Basic products are selling out as the public fears the worst

In the meantime, is a natural solution the best thing you can do to protect your household? We dig deeper to find out.

While people are rushing to buy toilet paper, sanitizer, water and food in preparations for a possible "self-quarantine", Jamie has been stocking up on a product called Total Defense Immunity Blend. The herbal oil blend is an essential oil blend of several high potency oils that are claimed to kill germs and viruses among other health benefits.

The claims aren't exactly unfounded. After doing our research one of the main oils in the blend is Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus Oil can help fight off bacteria and viruses, though it isn’t effective as an antifungal essential oil. It has been proven to be able to effectively kill 22 types of harmful bacteria, like E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus.

It has also been proven to be effective against a number of viruses, particularly the swine flu (H1N1) and herpes type 1 (HSV1) viruses. Could it also kill the 2020 Coronavirus?

We asked researcher James Murdock what his thoughts where on the subject. "Actually, while we haven’t studied the direct effect of the oil on the COVID-19 disease, it is plausible that it could have the ability to kill the virus on contact." He went on to say that "since Total Defense Immunity Blend appears to also have cinnamon, clove, lemon, lime, rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and oregano oils, that it could be considered a very strong product as the first line of defense against an outbreak in your home."

When asking Jamie more about how she uses the oil, she explained:

Step 1:

"Every day, I run a few drops through our diffuser which does a couple things. 1, it disperses the immunity boosting oil into the air which you breathe in. and boosts your immune system greatly increasing your chances to fight off illness which you breathe in to your lungs. The oil in the air quickly boosts your immune system greatly increases your chances to fight off illnesses. I'll weigh my family’s options carefully."

This natural product claims to purify the air, sanitize surfaces and boost your immune system from within as the first line of defense against an outbreak

Step 2:

"We all know the main way that colds and flu's such as the coronavirus spread is through surfaces and skin contact. This immunity oil actually will disinfect any surface including your skin. I mix the oil with vinegar and clean my entire home with it. I really think this is one of the main reasons why my family has not gotten sick in such a long time. It really does the trick." explains Jamie. "This oil is very strong, so I recommend a few drops in either oil, water, or vinegar for a highly effective hand sanitizer."

Step 3:

Jamie explains that the 3rd thing she does to protect her family from unwanted viruses, is to rub the oil into her and her family’s feet at night just before bed. "A very small amount rubbed into the feel allow the oil to penetrate into your body and greatly improve your immune system. I do this anytime we suspect a cold coming on, or we have been around anyone who is sick. It will knock anything out within a day or two."

Total Defense Immunity Blend.

We reached out to the company to ask them about their product and Jamie's flu fighting claims. The company responded that "It’s a Simple Solution to a Healthy, Protected Life for you and your Family and a lot of our customers are firm believers in our product." Like so many other businesses the makers of Total Defense Immunity Blend has experienced a surge of customer orders. "We have not seen a demand like this before in our lifetime. I think that people feel helpless and want to do something to protect themselves and their loved ones from spreading this disease." said a company spokesman.

They mentioned that they have a special offer for anyone who would like to try the product for themselves to see if helps. They are offering a 40% off to new customers to purchase the oils. Due to the high demand, they mentioned that it will only be available until they run out of product. They also offer bulk packages for those who want to stock up to protect themselves through the next flu season expected to drastically spread the coronavirus throughout the country this fall.

We asked Jamie what her biggest fears are when it comes to the coronavirus in which she responded: "Honestly, we feel pretty at ease right now. My biggest fear is that Total Defense will sell out before I have a chance to re-stock my supply. I always keep at least 5 bottles on me, but when you are dealing with a pandemic, that can go pretty quick. As a mom you want your family to feel safe, to be safe and to be as healthy as possible. I know I can't pretend that this will prevent all future sickness in our home, but 4 years so far is pretty darn impressive. I love that is all natural and I believe that nature has the solution for all of the world’s ailments. We just have to know where to look. I'll keep doing what I'm doing because it works, and when they have a better solution to fight the coronavirus, I'll weight my family’s options carefully."
