With EBV we want to utilize direct and indirect anti-virals/immune boosters as well as liver support. Boosting the immune system is essential in treating EBV. EBV lies dormant in white blood cells, which are a feature of the immune system. The products that we use most often to upregulate the immune system are Thymic Protein A, Vitamin D and REM+.
EBV can cause hepatitis and supporting the liver is a must. REM+ is our prime treatment for EBV as it both strengthens the immune system as well as protects the liver. Acetyl Glutathione helps clear the liver as well as strengthening patients. Glutathione is the antioxidant protection for red blood cells and it allows red blood cells to live longer building up the blood count. Use Milk Thistle or Siliphos if the cost of Acetyl Glutathione is an issue.
Our favorite direct antiviral for EBV is Monolaurin, followed in use by Olive Leaf (d-Lenolate) and L-Lysine Orotate.
Poor stress reactions are hallmarks of EBV cases. Lots of rest is paramount in treating mono. Of particular importance is not over-doing it once you are feeling somewhat better. EBV cases have a tendency to relapse and flare up again.
