Epstein-Barr virus is the most common viral infection in humans. It can lay dormant for years and cause crippling long-lasting fatigue. But most people never know that they have been infected. Among the many next-tier suspects is the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). EBV belongs to the family of herpes viruses including those that cause cold sores, genital herpes, chickenpox and shingles. Unlike bacteria, which multiply comfortably on their own given the right environment, viruses need to insert themselves into a host's cells in order to persevere. Once a virus has taken a human cell hostage, it continues to conquer cell after cell. For the most part, a healthy immune system can derail these viral interlopers so they don't do too much damage. The virus is detected, a customized antibody is made and an all-out attack is mounted by killer cells. But like other herpes viruses, EBV is quite clever and can evade an all-out antibody strike. It can stay in suspended animation for the rest of a person's life. lying dormant for months or years. There are no good treatments, no cures and no vaccines to prevent the spectrum of diseases (testing of a EBV vaccine is currently underway). Astragalus is used in Chinese medicine to enhance the immune system and fight infections. It is known to have anti-viral properties. Cat’s claw reduces EBV and cofactors such as strep A & B. Licorice root lowers EBV production and strengthens the adrenals and kidneys. Lemon Balm has antiviral and antibacterial. It kills EBV cells and strengthens the immune system. Elderberry has antiviral properties and strengthens the immune system. Olive Leaf can destroy these pathogens by interfering with their ability to replicate and spread. Red Clover cleanses the liver, lymphatic system, and spleen of neurotoxins from EBV. Cilantro removes heavy metals such as mercury and lead, which are favored foods of EBV.
