Did you get mono in college? If you did get the so-called "kissing disease" (like quite a few of us did!) you were infected by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Living up to its nickname, EBV is most often transmitted by saliva, but it can also be spread through other bodily fluids, such as blood and semen. Besides causing infectious mononucleosis (aka mono), an EBV infection may lead to Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare neurologic complication in which your immune system attacks your nerves. EBV is a member of the herpes virus family, and, as with herpes, even when your symptoms have totally cleared, the virus stays in your body in a latent state. This generally doesn’t cause a problem, unless you happen to be managing a chronic or invisible illness that weakens your immune system. In that case, EBV can reactivate and cause symptoms like fever, fatigue, and swollen glands. Sometimes people develop chronic fatigue syndrome after an infection with EBV or another virus, so researchers are trying to discover whether viruses might trigger CFS. Here’s what’s important to remember: EBV is one of the most common viruses in the world. Most infections don’t cause any symptoms, but if you find yourself with fever and fatigue or more, it can definitely complicate things. Just know that your symptoms will pass. There is no specific treatment for the virus, but high doses of intravenous vitamin C seem to reduce the viral load. Even if your EVB isn’t bothering you now, check with a nutritionist to make sure you're not deficient in any vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D (chronic illness of any kind can delete your body of nutrients). There are also many other remedies that seem to have potent anti-EBV activities, including turmeric and passionflower. Amino acids and Chinese herbs are also used successfully by some. As always, it's best to find a practitioner who can match the many natural treatment options out there to your specific symptoms so you recover faster! Meanwhile, you can make yourself feel better by staying hydrated (some people swear by celery juice) and getting lots of rest. To avoid passing along EBV, don’t share toothbrushes or drinks with others until well after your fever has subsided—good advice for anyone, we think!

What is the appropriate testing for EBV? How does the mechanism of EBV reactivation happen? What are the different types of triggers for EBV? How relevant is nutrition to EBV? Key Takeaways: One of the things that can trigger EBV reactivation in your infected B-cells is if you happen to have another infection. The EBV thrives on toxicity and feeds on excess hormones produced by your body when you’re having hormonal imbalance caused by other health issues, stress, exposure to toxins, etc. It’s very pertinent to women who are breastfeeding or postpartum or going through perimenopausal changes. You need to have a plant for every 100 square feet that you live in to filter the air inside your house. The concentration of toxins inside your house is eight times more than outside. The food that you eat is important because the food is the foundation. If you start improving your food and decreasing your toxicity level, things will start shifting. Selenium stops the replication process of EBV so it is recommended to take selenium supplements. You can’t fight EBV when you lack sleep or when your blood sugar is unstable. Action Steps: Test for EBV by going to direct to consumer labs. If you are going through the airport, you can decrease your toxic load, especially on your thyroid, by avoiding the X-ray machine. Instead, you can request for a pat-down. Improve your air quality at home by having green plants indoors. If you have heated floors at home, opt for natural rugs that you can wash naturally instead of wall-to-wall carpeting. You need to be strategic in targeting EBV because you don’t want to spend a whole year trying to figure it out, you want to start healing. Invest in organic food, and avoid microwaving your food. Also, make sure that you don’t go hypoglycemic and that you don’t skip meals. Dr. Kasia Kines said: “Once you have a virus, it stays with you for life, so some antibodies will always be elevated if you’ve had it… Pretty much, it’s impossible to not have that virus.” “Skipping meals is not optional. Having meals that is just one group of food and is not balanced, is not optional. Just like having low nutrient status, having hypoglycemia, ups and downs with the glucose, that is wonderful for the virus but not for us.” Thanks for listening!

Learn True Health: Regain Optimal Health in The Face of Mystery Symptoms and Chronic Illness
So many people have Lyme disease. But because the symptoms are not initially apparent, it takes time, and a lot of testing before it gets diagnosed. My guest Scott Forsgren is no stranger to this disease, and he’ll tell us how he survived Lyme disease in this episode. Scott Forsgren is a health coach, podcaster, and health advocate who took years to recover from Lyme disease. He says Lyme disease can be a complex and challenging condition for people. And the more broadly that we cast the net, the more potential we have to optimize health and wellness. Early Signs Scott Forsgren shares that his journey started 22 years ago when he had a tick bite in Northern California in 1996. But he didn’t think anything of it at the time because Lyme disease wasn’t something anyone talked about back then. There was very little information available. “So, I did find for several months, around April 1997, that I had the flu on steroids. It was a tremendous sickness over several days. Those symptoms continued for several more months. And I wasn’t sure if I’d even survive that experience,” recalls Scott Forsgren. Every system of Scott Forsgren’s body was affected. He had vision problems, fevers, joint pain, muscle pain, lots of gastrointestinal problems, cognitive issues regarding brain fog, and memory loss. There were also episodes of numbness and tingling, tapping sensation in his left foot, tremors, internal vibration, muscle twitches. A lot of these conditions can also lead to anxiety and depression and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Finding A Cure From 1997 to 2005, Scott Forsgren saw about 45 different practitioners. The majority suggested that it was all psychological and that he should work with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Scott Forsgren did get a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. He even had a doctor who suggested multiple sclerosis. “I did work with a fantastic medical doctor in Arizona. There were a few years was good. Then in 2004 all of the symptoms came back,” said Scott Forsgren. “I do think Lyme is a worldwide problem. When someone has Lyme, there’s more than just Lyme disease that we need to look at to maximize the potential for our recovery.” Starting Over Scott Forsgren went over to the American College for the Advancement of Medicine and looked for a new functional medicine doctor. He wanted someone that was Holistic and who would look broadly at all the potential issues. He was then referred to an acupuncturist who worked in an outlet mall that was doing computer-based energetic testing. Scott Forsgren recalls that the acupuncturist advised him to have a doctor to test him for borrelia or spirochaete. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren was also encouraged to see if there were some food that might be stressing his body. Turning Into A Believer Scott Forsgren was a skeptic, but when he got himself tested, everything the acupuncturist said was right. That piqued his interest in this realm of energy testing. Over the years, acupuncture became his number one tool to guide my journey back to wellness. “So, one of the important things is to keep an open mind. A lot of things that I would not have been open to 20 years ago when this whole journey started are the things that I ultimately now have found to be the most beneficial,” said Scott Forsgren. After Scott Forsgren got officially diagnosed with Lyme disease, he also started learning from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has a system of energetic testing that Scott Forsgren learned over the years as well as utilized and benefited from. He also did work with Dr. Klinghardt as a patient. And according to Scott Forsgren, that was the best decision he ever made overall in his health journey. Autonomic Response Testing Autonomic Response Testing (APT) is a system of muscle testing. But Scott Forsgren says there is no perfect system. He says we use these systems to uncover information and get us closer to the truth. It’s also a way to understand the things that are stressing the body that may need some support. Scott Forsgren believes some of us have less than optimal detoxification capacity to even end up with the condition that is related to Lyme disease and many others. But they may not manifest symptoms at all. “I do think that one’s detoxification capacity plays a significant role concerning symptoms that we develop. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt either suspects or believes that probably everyone has been exposed to some Lyme related organisms at some point during their lifetime,” Scott Forsgren said. He adds,” I think genes do not tell the entire story, but I think epigenetics does. It influences our genetic expression. We change how our genes express through stress management, nutrition, detoxification and joy in our life.” Scott Forsgren also reveals that most people who are dealing with Lyme disease very type A+ personalities and perfectionists. So, he thinks there are aspects of certain characters that are always in that sympathetic dominant mode. Key Things To Regain Balance First is removing the impact of negative emotions, thought patterns, emotional traumas, and conflicts. Scott Forsgren also advises looking at your environment. Do mold or biotoxin exposures surround you daily? Because that’s one of the critical causes of harmful exposures. Scott Forsgren also advises to look at nutrition and gut health as well as explore detoxification. He says we need to create an environment that is supportive of our healing. “Look for parasites and other microbial overgrowths whether it’s Lyme, co-infections or fungal issues like yeast. Viruses can play a big role as well,” said Scott Forsgren. “Also explore dental contributors like amalgam fillings, root canals or cavities. Rewire the limbic system which is part of the brain that includes the hypothalamus.” Limbic System The limbic system is called the feeling and reacting brain. Scott Forsgren says it is involved in determining our level of safety regarding the things that we might encounter, smell, see, hear and taste. Scott Forsgren explains that you can think of it as the alarm center and anxiety switch. It influences the functioning of our immune system, hormonal system, endocrine system, autonomic nervous system. Ultimately, it is involved in blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and digesting. Any of these things can trigger a limbic system impairment. “If someone doesn’t resonate with having had emotional trauma or conflict that set the stage for their condition, it creates a trauma which we need to process in some way,” said Scott Forsgren. Using Saunas Saunas are good, but Scott Forsgren says some people may not entirely be ready for it. We can mobilize some toxins internally as well. So we have to make sure the routes of elimination are open. “When you use a sauna, you do sweat things out, but at the same time, you can mobilize some toxins internally. A sauna is a good tool, but you need to listen to your body and not force something that maybe they’re not quite ready for,” said Scott Forsgren. “Detoxification is a life-long focus. I do it every day.” He adds, “When we’re recovering from a chronic condition like Lyme disease or mold exposure, detoxification is critical. Microbes like candida and parasites may be present in the body because the body is utilizing them or allowing them to be there to concentrate heavy metals, to help us detoxify. So not all of these organisms are necessarily bad or that we need to get rid of.” Testing For Molds If someone is not recovering from chronic Lyme disease despite doing all the right things, Scott Forsgren advises that they have to explore the mold piece. He urges everyone who is suffering from Lyme disease, making sure that your environment is safe from a mold perspective and an EMF perspective. Because bottom line, you want to create a sanctuary for recovery. “About 25% of the population has a genetic predisposition to illness from water-damaged buildings. And similar to Lyme disease, there is no perfect test for molds, so it’s critical for people to explore,” said Scott Forsgren. Starting with your home, Scott Forsgren says any place where you spend time on a regular basis should be suspect until you explored it. And then if an issue is identified, you may be able to do some remedies like moving to a new environment. Putting in some good air filtration device in the environment is also very helpful. It’s not a solution to a problem, but it’s something that can fix the situation while you are addressing the core issue. ISEAI International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) is an organization that has come together reasonably recently with doctors that deal with biotoxin illnesses. Some environmental professionals are part of this organization as well. According to Scott Forsgren, the organization is an excellent resource if you dive deeper into learning the cause of illnesses. The ISEAI website states that it is a nonprofit professional medical society whose aim is to raise awareness of the environmental causes of inflammatory illnesses. They also support the recovery of people affected by these illnesses using an integration of clinical practice, education, and research. Better Health Guy Website The website started in 2005 before Scott Forsgren had the Lyme disease diagnosis. Three months after the site launched, Lyme disease became the focus of the site. “The most interesting area for people to check out is the podcast where I interview experts as well as articles he has written over the years. Part of what’s on the blog are notes from different conferences that I have attended over the past ten plus years,” said Scott Forsgren. LymeLight Foundation Another organization that Scott Forsgren wanted to highlight was the LymeLight Foundation. The LymeLight Foundation is an organization that provides treatment grants to children and young adults 25 and under for Lyme disease treatments. “I think it’s critical for people to maintain hope. There are so many things that have improved in our understanding of Lyme disease and chronic conditions over the last several years,” said Scott Forsgren. He adds, “Lyme disease is a messenger for many of us. And the process of going through it is life changing. While it is the biggest challenge that many will ever face, something beautiful often happens as a result of the experience.” Bio Scott Forsgren, FDN-P is a health coach, blogger, podcaster, health writer, and advocate. He is the editor and founder of BetterHealthGuy.com, where he shares his 21-year journey through the world of Lyme disease, mold illness, and the myriad of factors that chronic illness often entails.

Learn True Health: The Toxicity Epidemic, Immune Function, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Epstein–Barr Virus, Mold, Heavy Metals, Parasites, with Dr. Jay Davidson
Parasites live in different areas of our body. Even the healthiest person is prone to getting parasites. In fact, Lyme disease and heavy metal toxicity are correlated to parasites. Much as we can’t completely get rid of parasites, my guest, Dr. Jay Davidson will teach us how to do a parasite cleanse and why it is essential to do so. Sick Wife Dr. Jay Davidson shares that it was his wife who was sick with Lyme disease at the age of 7. She was given medication since she had many other health issues until she was 18 years old. They met in college when they both went to chiropractic school. Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife was still struggling with Lyme disease until their daughter was born while he had massive parasite issues. Medications didn’t do much, so they both sought out natural alternatives. “Lyme disease has several strains. It is a bacteria and loves to drill into tissues and joints. Because it does not necessarily flow into the bloodstream, it is often undetected,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. He adds,”Lyme disease has an interesting defense mechanism. Upon taking antibiotics, it can change forms. When it develops into a cyst, it becomes resistant to the antibiotic. It also has an autoimmune effect.” Causes of Lyme Disease Medical literature lists the cause of Lyme disease is commonly from infected black-legged ticks. The same ticks can also transmit diseases to animals. According to Dr. Jay Davidson, because the ticks are so small, the bites are hardly noticeable. The insect’s saliva has an anesthetic-like substance. That is why one would initially not feel the bite. Curing Lyme Disease Symptoms of Lyme can be anything from flu, aches, and fatigue. Severe symptoms include chronic pain, nerve system problems, and even Bell’s palsy. Other symptoms include inflammation of the eyes and liver. However, Lyme disease can be cured when it is detected early. Dr. Jay Davidson says the key to finding a solution for Lyme disease is understanding how it works and how it affects our body. “You don’t have to manage it. It is just because you’re not peeling down the layers. We are given an immune system that is amazing. All we have to do is to identify all factors,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. He adds, “Our immune system can get over Lyme. Often, it is triggered by emotional stress and mold exposure. Essentially, Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and not a lab test diagnosis.” Parasites And Its Effects Dr. Jay Davidson believes that parasites are such an epidemic. It is because there is not much effort to teach people about parasites. That is why he advises his patients to do a long parasite-type cleanse to empty out the stuff that’s in us. Then remember to do a cleanse once every six months for maintenance. Dr. Jay Davidson further explains that bugs love trauma. And when there’s trauma, the immune system gets suppressed. Hence, there’s a chance that bugs can flourish. Health conditions like pelvic pain, ovarian pain, bladder pain, pain during intercourse and labor pain are just some of the examples where bugs can be prevalent. This is because the immune system diminishes in those areas of surgery. Apparently, bugs go there because it is an easier environment to take over. “Anything you are doing to kill parasites, you’re going to do two things—kill the parasites and release heavy metals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “So it is also important to have some binders. It is so simple to do but effective.” Heavy Metals Toxicity According to Dr. Jay Davidson, heavy metals toxicity is the direct impact of the parasite. Symptoms include anything from headaches to fatigue. We can get infected through our environment, food and even the water that we drink. The most common heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium. One way of reducing the risk of having heavy metals toxicity is by changing our dietary habits. “If you have heavy metals toxicity, your body is more likely to keep those parasites around. Parasites absorb heavy metals. Mold spores can live inside parasites. If parasites are around, we would never be able to detox heavy metals,” explains Dr. Jay Davidson. BioActive Carbon Supplements The body is pretty much water and carbon. That comprises approximately 96% of molecules in the body. Dr. Jay Davidson adds that when you have carbons to donate, those are building blocks for the cells. So to help get rid of toxins in the body, Dr. Jay Davidson offers two kinds of supplements—BioActive Carbon 1 and BioActive Carbon Plus. Both are available on his website. BioActive Carbon 1 is a supplement for heavy metals and environmental toxins. It is not from activated charcoal and instead, comes from multiple sources of humic acid and fulvic acid. BioActive Carbon Plus, on the other hand, is a systemic biotin binder. This means it can support binding biotoxins like mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are usually associated with ammonia from bacteria, mold, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and viruses. “It binds toxins very well. So if there is an excess of toxicity in the body, it could potentially cause irritation, and you can feel agitated or anxious,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. “Vast symptoms can occur when you start detox too fast. Start with half a capsule twice a day for one week or two. But usually, one capsule twice a day is the recommended dosage.” Formula 1 This supplement is a support for anti-parasite. It contains a combination of three herbs that contain organic neem, organic vidanga, and organic clove. Dr. Jay Davidson suggests that it is advisable to do periodic cleansing every six months. He assures that his supplements are safe because they do not use fillers or additives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free. “Periodic cleansing keeps the numbers down. The goal isn’t to kill every single bacteria, parasite, and virus in our body because our body is vastly made up of these things,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. Bio Dr. Jay Davidson D.C., PSc.D. completed his undergraduate studies at University Wisconsin La Crosse Majoring in Biology with biomedical concentration and chemistry minor. He received his doctorate of chiropractic degree at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota. Dr. Jay Davidson focuses on functional, natural medicine. He is a husband and a father. He is also a popular speaker and a two-time #1 international best-selling author. He was the host of the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #1 and Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #2. He was also the host of the Parasite Summit and a co-host of The Detox Project, which had over 50,000 participants. Dr. Jay Davidson is admired for his ability to bridge the gap between the scientific health community and the layperson. His holistic approach encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. He works with his clients to formulate a simple, straightforward plan for restoring health. This has gained him tremendous respect among the Lyme community and his colleagues. Dr. Jay Davidson is an ambitious researcher and clinician in the health world. He and his team of well-trained doctors work with clients virtually around the world!

Wellness Speaks: About Epstein-Barr Virus And It's Connection To Autoimmune Conditions
Autoimmune Conditions Affect 1 in 6 Americans! There are many “triggers” of autoimmune conditions including diet, toxins, leaky gut, stress, infections, and viruses. In this episode we look at the research surrounding Epstein-Barr Virus and autoimmune conditions. When our immune systems are healthy, it keeps the viruses in check, but when it is suppressed by stress or illness, the infection can become active once again. Once the virus is active, the inflammatory immune response damages tissue, which then causes more inflammation and a bigger response from the immune system. Autoimmune disease develops from that chronic state of inflammation. We also breakdown various healing modalities among the functional medicine perspective to help reduce stress and chronic low-grade inflammation.

He's published in many journals. He teaches advanced functional medicine courses with Functional Medicine Town, professional co-op and as adjunct faculty with Hawthorn University. Dr. Hedberg has found that many chronic diseases are a result of stealth infections and that's what we're going to focus on tonight.

The Mend Yourself Well Podcast: My Personal Journey with Epstein Barr Virus and Why I Mend Myself Well Daily
I had a wake up call from the Universe! Since contracting Epstein- Barr Virus as a child, I’ve had to deal with a weakened immune system. I was always sick until I found chiropractic care at age 17 and started learning about wellness. Recently I’ve been taking on a lot of projects at home, at work and in life! I’ve been demanding a lot from my body, my mind and my well-being. Since Mend Yourself Well is no longer just a passion project, I’ve decided to bring the movement into my chiropractic office. Within 24 hours after announcing that I would be increasing my office hours I started to feel stressed! As a doctor, I felt like I could never have anything wrong with me. I didn’t want to seem weak or vulnerable until I realized it only makes me human! Because of Epstein-Barr Virus I have to mend myself well every single day. Mending Yourself Well is more than just taking your supplements or getting a massage. Mending Yourself Well is about self-discovery and self-determination! It’s about loving yourself and taking the best care of yourself that you can! You have to be willing to make healthy choices, to say “no” to things that are burning you out, “goodbye” to the things that are stressing you out, “yes” to the things you actually want and “yes” to the life you want to live. I had to mend myself well so that I could fully express my life and fully become the best version of myself that I can and now I’m a living example of what that looks like! I want you to join me on this journey so stay tuned for future episodes where I will be sharing more ways to Mend Yourself Well! I hope that through this podcast episode and through future podcast episodes you can learn to incorporate healthy choices into your daily life! I’ve put together a PDF for you to make easy, healthy lifestyle choices. All those resources are free to you HERE Be WHOLE and WELL my friend, Dr. Jenna
