Epstein Barr virus cause

The cause of mononucleosis or Epstein Barr virus is an infection by the Epstein Barr virus, a member of the herpes virus family.

Like all the herpes viruses, the Epstein Barr virus remains in the body for life.

In some cases, the Epstein Barr virus can be reactivated when the body's defenses are lowered causing some people to get Epstein Barr virus twice or in rare cases, recurrent Epstein Barr.

Epstein Barr fever symptoms

The typical Epstein Barr virus symptoms are:

  • Swollen glands in neck, armpits or groin
  • Fever ranging from mild to severe
  • Fatigue, sometimes extreme
  • Sore throat, similar to tonsillitis

Some patients will also suffer from:

  • Enlarged tonsils
  • Headache
  • Aching muscles
  • Poor appetite
  • Skin rash
  • Abdominal pain
  • Puffy eyelids
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Cough or runny nose
  • Enlarged liver and spleen.

Is mononucleosis the same as glandular fever?

Yes, mononucleosis is the same disease as glandular fever. It is also called infectious mononucleosis, mono, mononucleosis virus, Epstein Barr, Epstein Barr virus and EBV.


Duration of Epstein Barr virus

Symptoms of Epstein Barr virus usually last from 1 - 4 weeks although some cases may last months.

Can you get Epstein Barr virus twice? Is Epstein Barr virus recurrent?

Generally, people only get Epstein Barr virus once. Some people  get Epstein Barr virus twice. About 6% of people experience recurrent Epstein Barr virus for months or years after they initially contact the virus.

A Epstein Barr virus relapse or recurring Epstein Barr virus means that the immune system needs to be strengthened in order to keep the Epstein Barr virus symptoms at bay.

The e-book has a comprehensive Epstein Barr virus treatment plan that ensures long term Epstein Barr virus recovery.


How do you get Epstein Barr?

The Epstein Barr virus is shed from the throat during the illness and up to a year after the infection. The virus can become dormant and later reactivated during a Epstein Barr virus relapse when it can be shed from the throat again.

Apart from through kissing, saliva can transmit the Epstein Barr virus by people sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, towels or toys. Epstein Barr can be transmitted from mouth to hand so washing hands well is important.

Is Epstein Barr virus contagious?

Though good personal hygiene makes sense, the Epstein Barr virus is everywhere, and exposure to it cannot be avoided entirely. Washing hands well, avoiding kissing and not sharing towels, glasses and eating utensils with infected patients is a good idea. People with Epstein Barr virus do not need to be isolated from others.

See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures"  for reasons why some people seem more susceptible to recurring Epstein Barr, and what you can do about it.

 

Epstein Barr incubation

Epstein Barr symptoms appear 30 - 50 days after exposure to the Epstein Barr virus, although some people are infected with the virus for weeks or months before any symptoms begin to appear.

Epstein Barr diagnosis

Epstein Barr diagnosis is based on a persons age, symptoms and a physical exam. A diagnosis of Epstein Barr virus is made from laboratory tests including:

  • Atypical lymphocytes - a type of white blood cell, in the blood. In mononucleosis, these atypical lymphocytes make up more than 10% of total lymphocytes.
  • Increased total white blood cell count
  • Antibody tests like the mono spot test.
  • Additional Epstein Barr antibody tests

These are fully explained in the e-book.

Epstein Barr treatment

The conventional medical approach to Epstein Barr virus treatment  is not very effective. It includes only the basics like relieving Epstein Barr virus symptoms. Advice normally given is to rest, drink plenty of fluids, gargle with salt water and suck on throat lozenges to relieve a sore throat. To relieve pain and fever, acetaminophen or ibuprofen may be recommended.

Antibiotics like penicillin are of no help in mono. Epstein Barr virus is caused by a virus, and antibiotics don't work against viruses. If you have a bacterial infection in addition to having glandular fever, your doctor may give you an antibiotic.

I believe that much more can be done to treat the virus naturally for a complete Epstein Barr virus recovery.  See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures"  for our full treatment plan.

In the book, I show  the best natural health approaches to Epstein Barr virus treatment. I explain little known facts about nutrition, supplementation, pure water, adequate rest and sleep, stress reduction, and when to start gentle exercise. I also explain complementary therapies like the use of essential oils, homeopathy, massage, and visualization to ensure that Epstein Barr virus relapses do not occur.

Can Epstein Barr virus cause chronic fatigue?

Some patients suffer from recurring Epstein Barr. Their primary  symptom is usually fatigue and they end up being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  It is often in times of stress when a Epstein Barr virus relapse occurs.

The bottom line is how healthy your immune system is. If you still get recurring Epstein Barr virus with sore throats, swollen glands or fatigue, it is nature's way of telling you that something is wrong with your immune system.

It may be suppressed from poor eating habits, nutritional imbalances, stress, smoking or a chronic underlying disease. Your genes can also make you more susceptible to disease.

Fortunately, through general lifestyle practices like a healthy diet, stress reduction, regular exercise and taking some immune boosting supplements, you can strengthen your immunity and make a full Epstein Barr virus recovery.

See the e-book for my comprehensive Epstein Barr virus treatment plan.

Can Epstein Barr virus in children be a concern?

Epstein Barr in adults is most common, mainly affecting adults aged 15 - 40. In children the Epstein Barr virus symptoms are normally less severe. Epstein Barr in children is often passed off as a cold or flu and may not even be diagnosed.

In some cases acute Epstein Barr virus in children can be serious and has been known to turn into chronic Epstein Barr. Epstein Barr  treatment in children is the same as in adults as explained in "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures".

 

Can Epstein Barr virus in pregnancy be serious?

Recent research shows that reactivation of the Epstein Barr virus  during pregnancy may shorten the duration of the pregnancy. It has been associated with the baby having a lower average birth weight, length and head circumference.

Since pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause fatigue, it is vital to address a Epstein Barr virus treatment plan that ensures a quick recovery.
