Could your fatigue be from EBV virus?

We hope you are surviving this winter and staying healthy! We'd like to share some information about the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) in this newsletter. You might be surprised to learn that EBV affects over 95% of us, often during childhood or adolescence. Although our bodies develop immunity after the initial infection, EBV can linger dormant and negatively influence our health.

It's essential to understand that dormant EBV doesn't typically cause symptoms or health problems. However, it can reactivate and induce symptoms such as fatigue, muscle aches, joint pain, and worse, especially during periods of stress, poor diet, or after an illness such as flu or covid.

Furthermore, dormant EBV has been associated with health issues such as chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and certain types of nerve pain. Increasingly, scientists are exploring its potential role in "long-COVID" symptoms.

There's no specific treatment for dormant EBV. Still, a balanced lifestyle, a nutrient-rich diet, and an optimized gut and liver cleansing protocol can help maintain a robust immune system and reduce the risk of reactivation and complications.

You might be asking, "What does this mean for me?" That's where Marli Ollerton comes in! She is a clinical nutritionist working with ReachHealth.

Marli is offering a Free 30-minute session to assess whether a tailored health regimen could benefit you, especially if you've been experiencing lingering post-infection symptoms or other health concerns potentially associated with EBV. This offer stands until the end of August 2023. You can click the below, or call Marli directly on 0477 023 166.

Remember, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is vital: avoid processed foods, alcohol, and smoking; include gut-healthy and nerve-nourishing foods like bitter greens, starchy vegetables, and fiber-rich whole foods; and keep yourself well-hydrated. Together, we can ensure you're living your healthiest life possible, and get you past the awful disruption caused by EBV. Stay healthy,

Your ReachHealth Team
