Can anyone tell me what vitamins supplements help with chronic EBV symptoms? The severe body aches come and go but the fatigue never stops. Is there something that will give me some measurable amount of energy back?
Not promoting any of these as a cure but they supposedly have anti-herpes benefits. Avoid nuts also, as L-Arginine found in nuts, and some other foods, can actually help the herpes virus thrive. I like nuts though and have trouble not eating them -- as the benefit of eating them probably outweighs the benefit of not -- so maybe consider taking L-Lysine to help offset the L-Arginine.
I'm not an expert on this stuff though, so I would suggest Googling this info to help you make the best judgment.
I've had CFS, Fibro since 1988 and tried a multitude of supplements. My doctor is now trying me on a natural sugar...D-ribose. 2 tablespoones 2 times a day with meals. You may want to check into that. I've had good results with Natural Noni Juice also but it worked against my IBS, so I had to give it up. I stay on a good multivitamin as well as additional C, E, B complex and D. Good luck. I would like to give you hope, but I've just not found anything that takes all the pain away, nor the fatigue.
I just got diagnosed with reactivated Mono (EBV positive) and am seeing an ND in Seattle that has had good success with putting patients on a supplement protocol. She says it takes about 2 months but there is a significant difference. Her name is Carolyn Fuller, ND, and she's located at Bastyr University medical clinic in Seattle.
