Colds, Flus & Viruses / Epstein Barr Virus
« Last post by Eglantine on Today at 09:20:46 AM »
I'm bumping this up...

It's been 2 years since I posted about my husband's decline due to EBV. I've since seen a surge of info. on the internet about it but we still are struggling to overcome this awful virus. Last week he said that if things continue the way they're going for him, he expects he has 2-3 years. Not sure what to do with that other than resolve yet again to continue this fight.

Have any of you successfully treated and overcome EBV?

Thanks for the info. My daughter responded very well to treatment. She has been off antibiotics since February. I still give her probiotics and watch her closely. I am still struggling. I added resvertrol and that has helped a lot. I am still doing the antibiotic route. My doctor changed it some. And of course a lot of supplements and diet. I have ordered some tinctures from the stephen buhner protocol. So I am going to start that when I get that. I do have ledum and I had took some of that myself in the very beginning. I was so scared and then when my daughter had the rash I was too afraid to follow that. But I would use that if we had any more bites. I think I have had this for a really long time. And either I had a second bite or something set it off. So I didn't know if ledum would be good for that or just an acute case. I research all the time. It's so hard to decide what the best way is. I've stayed on the route from my llmd for now. I have a lot of head pressure and neck pain still. That's where it's the worst for me. If I don't see improvement with this latest round of meds I will probably switch to all herbal protocol. I do know it takes time.... It has been almost 8 months. That's a long time to be in constant pain.😕

Hello wlwest, I guess you haven't gotten any replies, and it's been several months.  :(  How are you doing with Lymes disease?  I have been successful treating three of my kids with homeopathic Ledum 200c for Lymes disease.  Lymes is really tough, and antibiotics don't always kill it.  One of my sons was on antibiotics for four months straight, for Lymes disease, and it didn't really work.  The symptoms declined, but within a few weeks off antibiotics, they returned.  Plus, the antibiotics messed up his gut and gave him stomach aches.  Homeopathy is better.  Here's what I do for my family:

Take Ledum 200c for Lymes disease, twice per day for weeks or months, and then declining in frequency.  At first, you might see some reaction to the Ledum, either an improvement, or possibly a lot of symptoms getting worse all at once.  This is an indication that the remedy is correct and the body is starting to flush out the Lyme organism. 

The longer you have Lyme, the longer it takes to treat with homeopathy.  After the symptoms are healed, you can reduce the Ledum to once per day, for a couple weeks.  Then every other day for a couple weeks.  Continue to decrease in frequency until you're taking it just once per month for a few months.

After you feel better, if you have symptoms again, then go back to twice/day until you are better, and for a couple extra weeks.  Then begin to decrease the frequency all over again. 

I can tell you the stories of how my kids healed up.  The first was a miraculous healing -- God touched my oldest son (12yo) through prayer, and he was instantly well after being bed-ridden for five weeks.  2011.  Praise God! 

The second case was my fourth son.  We found a Lyme bullseye rash on him when he was 7yo, and we did four months of antibiotics.  When that didn't work, I started him on homeopathy, and he gradually got completely better.  That was a couple years ago. 

Third case was my third son (8yo), about a year ago.  We found a tick on him and started Ledum the next day.  I stopped after two weeks, because I didn't know how to do the gradual decrease of frequency.  Within days of stopping the Ledum, my son became sick with the Lyme symptoms, and I started him on Ledum again.  He had a total of four days of acute symptoms, and he has been fine ever since. 

The fourth case was my fifth son (5yo), last year.  We never saw a tick or rash, so didn't know he had Lymes until he started complaining of symptoms: weak limbs, joint pain, headaches, lethargy.  He took a couple of months to heal up on Ledum, and he is still on the once/month doses. 

I hope that helps!  You are welcome to pm me if you want, because I'm not on the forum very often anymore.

Depends on why you are taking them.  I took them for almost a year for Leaky Gut.  I also took them for about 6 months to help with healing my C-section scars.  I think "as needed" for your particular needs is probably warranted.

I wish I would have stuck to this. A friend of mine has been doing this for four years now and is still going strong! I have started again today. Going to keep up on my calendar better and write in my journal to keep up.
