Epstein Barr (EBV) is a common human virus that causes mononucleosis (mono). EBV has also been associated with some rare cancers like Burkitt’s lymphoma and nasopharyngeal cancer. Epstein Barr virus symptoms can relapse when you are run down or under stress.
Many doctors use the terms EBV and mononucleosis interchangeably. Other doctors will diagnose you with EBV when your blood test results come back positive for the virus but you are not showing the classical mononucleosis symptoms of sore throat, swollen glands, fever and malaise.
Some people do exhibit chronic Epstein Barr symptoms many months or years after their diagnosis. Recurrent Epstein Barr virus symptoms typically include fatigue and muscular and neurological symptoms like muscle aches, headaches, dizziness, numbness, brain fog, palpitations and weakness.
The natural treatment for Epstein Barr symptoms is aimed at fighting the virus and repairing damaged tissues and glands. An effective treatment approach is targeted at:
- boosting the immune system in order to fight the virus
- repairing the adrenal glands and resting the body so as to improve energy and stamina
- cleansing the liver and the lymphatic system which are often congested.
For chronic ongoing Epstein Barr virus symptoms, attention should be focused on a holistic approach including stress management, graded exercise, regular massages or body work, and a healthy immune boosting diet. The help and support of a holistic doctor or qualified naturopath is essential in order to monitor progress and ensure future relapses do not occur.
These therapies are discussed in the e-book “Nature’s Amazing Mononucleosis Cures” by qualified naturopath Elizabeth Noble.
