I've just connected the dots ... I have been a holistic nutritionist for 20 + years and then I studied NLP (neuro linguistic programming) for 3 and have put it into practice for about 9 years... AND this past weekend I was led to some information on Epstein Barr virus. Apparently about 95% of the population has it and there about 60 strains. There are many stages and it has been given many names.
Now that I know it's a big part of the cause of my own sudden health struggles (and goodness, I seem to be able to track some symptoms back to my childhood now), I am the one in control of how it affects me.
It's been a huge eye opener because in 2006 I started to have panic attacks that appeared to come out of no where but was going through huge stress. That was also when I had an abscess tooth and some gut pain.
Before I made the connection this past weekend, I knew my immune system was failing, liver, kidneys, spleen and other organs not working well. Then the bump showed up on my thyroid! Because of my life long study to being a health detective of sorts, I was able to see what was working, what was depleted and what foods were triggers. There is always a body-mind-spirit connection. Staying strong mentally and spiritually have been key too.
The info that I had been recommended about 6 times before I looked at it is the research and work by Anthony Williams. *His book, that includes vital information on Epstein Barr, is called: Medical Medium. This appears to be about 30 years ahead of it's time. Apparently, our medical system can't test for the many kinds of Epstein Barr. The virus excretes a neurotoxin that causes inflammation and damage to surrounding cells.
The ah ha moment came for me when he said that pesticides and heavy metals that come from our food, vaccines, mercury fillings, store in our thyroid and that the Epstein Barr virus will attack the thyroid to feed itself, in the process it excretes a neurotoxin that can lead to mono, strep, hypo and hyper thyroid, menstrual pain, menopausal symptoms, Lyme, body aches and pains, ms, edema (swelling), ringing in ears, vertigo, migraines, depression, anxiety and the list goes on and on.
Anthony talks about how we can reduce the influence of the virus through foods (and slowly detoxing) and a few key supplements (like zinc) and live healthy and happy lives, and that in fact we want to keep some of the virus to have the antibodies so as to not catch another strain. I've posted a podcast below that literally woke me right up to a new level of self-health! It's worth looking a listen.
Please share this information with as many people as you can. Thank you.
