The Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) causes chronic fatigue syndrome, which is the virus that causes Mononucleosis. Many women do not even recall having Mono but when the symptoms present and the tests are run the laboratory work shows a positive exposure.
As a grouping, viruses are sneaky; they take hold when we aren’t paying attention because we are usually stressed, and trying to deal with what is going on in our lives. Then before we know it, whammo! our health starts to decline, we become tired and the state of our overall health forces us to take a (much needed) break.
Viruses can surface when we have certain vitamin, mineral, or amino acid deficiencies, leaving us in a weakened state, a perfect setting for a viral attack. Once we are exposed to a virus and it invades our immune system, we are now the proud card carrying member of that virus. That means that it will never leave our system. It sits there lying dormant until we become stressed, traumatized, deficient, or hit with a bacterial or fungal infection that already compromises our immune system to show up.
