Definition. The Epstein-Barr virus is a very common cause of viral infection in human beings. The virus is a member of the herpes virus family. It causes the illness called infectious mononucleosis.
Incidence. The Epstein Barr virus is common because it spreads easily from person to person through contact and other ways. Many people carry the virus but are unaware they have it. In one study, over 90% of adults showed evidence of past infection. About 200,000 cases are reported every year in the United States alone.
Acute. With an acute infection one develops fever, aches and pains, weakness, swollen glands, an enlarged liver or spleen, and perhaps other symptoms such as a rash. These symptoms are called infectious mononucleosis.
Chronic. If the body keeps the viral load in check, EBV causes few or no symptoms. However, it weakens the entire body because the body must spend energy fighting off the virus.
Conventional doctors have no specific therapy for Epstein-Barr viral infection. They recommend lots of rest, drinking plenty of water, and perhaps other supportive measures.
A complete development program will usually correct the symptoms of acute Epstein-Barr virus in a few days to a few months. Correction of chronic infection can take longer, up to a few years.
Correction occurs because the program reduces toxicity in the body, enhances nutrition, remineralizes the body, removes toxic metals, enhances adaptive energy, and makes the body more yang in macrobiotic terms. All this causes the immune response to improve.
Development and EBV. Eliminating the Epstein-Barr virus completely from the body requires Development, which takes several years or more on a complete program.
RETRACING AN EPSTEIN-BARR VIRAL INFECTION
As one develops on a development program, one often must retrace an old Epstein-Barr virus attack from the past. The timing is difficult to predict because the symptoms of Epstein-Barr virus are very similar to those of other viral infections.
If this occurs, one may suddenly develop symptoms such as a mild fever, swollen lymph nodes, aches and pains, and perhaps a rash. This may last a few days to a week or two, and then it goes away.
This might even happen several times if there is heavy infection with Epstein-Barr virus. Once it is over, and provided one’s health level remains high, the virus is gone for good.
