Dr. Berg talks about the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). This is other known as the kissing virus and 90% of the adult population has it. It can initially cause:
-swollen throat and glands

EBV can then later in life lead to:
*Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
*Rheumatoid Arthritis
*Hodgkin Lymphoma
*M.S. and other autoimmune conditions

This virus can go dormant and in remission and can be reactivated during times of stress and nutritional deficiencies. Whats interesting is that fact that only a part of the gene expression can occur giving you all sorts of symptoms but not the full blown infection.

-Support the adrenal glands
-Trace mineral support (selenium, magnesium and boron)

    exactly in 2010 I got the virus and in 2013 till 2015 when I had huge stress and later in 2015 I was diagnosed with reynolds which is yet not known if I have an autoimmune disease or not, but personally I suppose all happened after this virus and due to huge stress that I experienced in 2015.

  2. James Humphrey April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    wait !!!!! though stress was good for you……….

  3. The88logan April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    I had mononucleosis from Epstein Barr- horrible! I have since used oleuropein from olive leaf and that works awesome. What do you think of oleuropein?

  4. Witty Vixen April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Odd because I had the virus after I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid. It wasn’t fun. Now my thyroid is slow but it’s in check.

    Thanks for the video. Very interesting, esp about the mosquitos. I wondered why I have such a bad reaction now.
    Ive has fibromyalgia for 15 years. doctors always told me they don’t know what caused it but it could be having ebv as a teen. I def notice a decrease in symptoms when I limit stress. My question is if my blood was tested recently for Epstein Barr and numbers showed negative that doesn’t necessarily mean that I shouldn’t be having symptoms? Will Blood tests should show if the virus has resurfaced? I guess is what I’m asking ^_^

  7. jovicrazed April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    This was very interesting. I had no idea that mono and all those other ailments were related. My mom was horribly crippled by RA and also had Lupus. I am hyper sensitive to mosquito bites.

  8. Robert Andrews April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Thanks…Dr Berg Can you tell me what can cause lumps or welts on the palms of the hands please ?

  9. Anmar S. April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    I have a question not related to the subject of this video. When doing keto, IF, HIIT to increase HGH, how long the body has the ability to keep making HGH? Does it stop at certain age even when continuing doing the keto, IF and. HIIT?

  10. Aaron Adams April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Question for Dr. Berg: What is your opinion on TRT?

  11. 20alphabet April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    So kissing can cause swelling of the glands? How about that? Learn something new every other day.

  12. Christopher Beblo April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    At the beginning of video this is Doc. way of bragging about him getting a kiss in high school 🙂

  13. Cyber Bruiser April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    thankyou,I have answers now

  14. Alice Bedwell April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Isn't boron in beets?

  15. Adeline W. April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Thank you very much for this video! I'm exactly in it right now since a year. Doctors cannot help, so I take some other healthy stuff that work in some way I don't really get healthy sadly…
    Don't know what to do…

  16. Terri Miller April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    90% are you kidding

  17. DStray Cat April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Excellent message 🙂 It reminds me of "Shingles"… Another virus that comes from "Chicken Pox" and it does essentially the same thing… except shingles results in an extremely painful rash… I know, I had it… but I don't know if it will ever come back… The other day, I thought I was getting it again as I had a spot on my hip that was very itchy to the point of being painful… As soon as I relaxed, it went away… Great video 🙂 Thanks

  18. jayNbella April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Can you do another video going into dept about mono

  19. Martial Bachoffner April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    I’m a man, bodybuilder, when I take a pill of 3mg of boron, i get gyno. Same when I take DIM.

  20. DD who April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    There is so much you have educated me with. thank you

  21. Kelly Jones April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    On your list you said MS, then autoimmune diseases underneath separately. Does that mean MS is not an autoimmune disease?

  22. Raja Shahja April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    ok to the topic comment, my thyroids are going hyper but come evening my cortisol drops so i have to drag myself after 6, so after few days of thinking and using my experience now i boost my testosterone in the evenings with respective foods for , that sets me going , i stretch/drag myself barely towards end of the day till i go asleep and for that i take magnesium foods and that helps me sleep like a log. in the morning my cortisol are great i wake up early at 5 and there is no inflammation so i can exercise; but if there is inflammation i know i screwed up something the other day, so i make sure to correct that next time.

  23. Raja Shahja April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    now that i am getting skinny, i want that great looking shirt.

  24. Sonia Tremblay April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    I had 3 mononucleosis episodes (EBV) in my life… The first at 16 (2 months sick and extremely weak, school at home, blood count completely messed up, my doctor said to me it was the worst case she has seen in her carreer…..), the second time in my 20 during stress period and an other in my 40 during another stress period. EBV is latent since but stress is definitely a trigger.

    I had it at 27. Haven't been the same since.

  27. Arizona Skywatch April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    My family got it living in a house with black mold. (Not sure if it's linked or not) one person's spleen ruptured from it. There was NO stress involved.

  28. max bauer April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    had it when i was around 16. its quite brutal. enlarged spleen, swollen throat lots of pus i smelled like i was rotting inside out, knife stabbing pain when swallowing, high fever. 2 weeks staying in bed muscle aches and so on so forth…

  29. BGAIL April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    NO ONE explains this – except Dr. Berg. Thank you!

  30. Amy Lockhart April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Is this like 'mono' ?

  31. Barbara Silano April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    How about the adding L-lysine and avoiding L-Arginine an a diet to control it. Can the body get rid of Epstein Barr completely?

  32. stefrzchicago April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Is there any point in getting tested for EBV? Or does the blood test just tell you if the antibodies are or were recently activated? If EBV goes in remission but you still have the virus in your body, will it even show up on labs? It sounds like since 90% of the population have had or have EBV, it is better to just treat the symptoms?

  33. Dreoilín ÓCoigligh April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Great video 👍 Meditation, healthy hobbies, working out, closer relationship with family/friends/deity

  34. Alan Eckert April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Adrenal gland support equals the Adrenal Cocktail, Whole food vitamim C like 4 oz OJ, 1/4 tsp sodium and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar for extra potassium. Or any mix similar that provides the same nutrients. 10 AM 2 PM

  35. Alan Eckert April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Iron induced oxidative stress!!!!!

  36. Anna from RI April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Add me to the list of people dealing with EBV. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 12 years ago and then another doctor told me it’s CFS, due to EBV found in my bloodwork. I noticed my body go downhill quickly after I had my one and only child. I always wonder if the stress of childbirth combined with an abusive marriage (good riddance), triggered the EBV. I’m pretty high-functioning but it still is a huge weight to endure every day and I always wonder how much more I could do and be without this hindrance. IF seems to help with inflammation along with consistent exercise. I still need to tighten up doing keto consistently to see if there is any magic with it. But please, please, please do more videos in this realm. It’s unbelievably IGNORED and misunderstood in the conventional medical field. Thanks, Dr. Berg

    Many of the population has this- deep cell in our body- it came back for me a couple of years ago displaying itself as Lyme disease/ extreme fatigue and joint pain. My homeopathic doctor as well as Anthony William ( see his books on Mystery illness) helped me recover fully. I believe it was brought about by stress but also hormonal changes- this is why so many women experience menopausal symptoms which are actually EBV symptoms!!!

  38. Ty Kellerman April 14, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Very interesting thanks
