EPSTEIN BARR VIRUSEpstein-Barr Virus (EBV) is the virus called mononucleosis, also known as mono or the kissing disease. This virus affects an estimated 90% of the population who have antibodies showing current or past EBV infection. Once you have had an EBV infection, you will not get mono, but can experience similar symptoms from another viral illness. The majority of individuals contract EBV as an adolescent and this virus remains dormant in the body. However, EBV can reactivate due to a weakened immune system and cause many debilitating health conditions. Common CausesUnmanaged stressA secondary or co- infectionNutrient deficienciesLeaky gutHigh toxic burdenCommon SymptomsChronic fatigueMuscle achesRashesSore throatChronic headachesSwollen lymph nodesLow platelet countLiver dysfunctionCommon TreatmentsThere isn\u0026#39;t a cure for EBV, so treatment for Epstein-Barr reactivation involves promoting conditions in the body which prompt the virus to return to it’s dormant state. Repairing leaky gut – This decreases inflammation and overall immune burden by removing inflammatory and immunosuppressive foods.Correcting nutrient deficiencies – Providing the immune system with the fuel it needs to mount the appropriate defense against pathogens.Reducing stress – Stress is a common driver of immune dysfunction and can cause the resurgence of other immune conditions as well.Addressing other current infections – This alleviates the increased burden on the immune system.Optimizing detoxification – This includes digestion, the liver, kidney, and respiratory function.Take herbs and supplements that strengthen and support your immune system.Get TestedIf you’re experiencing symptoms of Epstein-Barr reactivation, visit accesalabs.com and schedule an Epstein-Barr test panel.
