So many suffer from many conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Lupus, adrenal insufficiency, brain fog, Lyme, Rheumatoid arthritis and more.
When we do the research, we find that Epstein Barr can contribute to many conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimotos, Lupus, Parkinson's and more. Often times, many of these conditions, from Fibromyalgia, Lyme, EBV, co-occur. Many times, mold sensitivity can play a role in this.
Research shows that about 90% of the world population has antibodies for Epstein Barr. It can be activated at any point and throughout life, and can be activated by a number of reasons including excess heat, excess air conditioning, WiFi, radiation, heavy metals, stress, coronavirus, processed foods, consuming eggs, dairy, and gluten and other factors.
If you are curious, and would like to do your own research, I strongly recommend starting with reading The Epstein-Barr Virus Solution: The Hidden Undiagnosed Epidemic of a Virus Destroying Millions of Lives through Chronic Fatigue, Autoimmune Disorders and Cancer by Dr. Kasia Kines.
So, we have lots of conditions that can show up together.
We have a modern world that is a breeding ground for reactivation of symptoms.
What else can we learn about these conditions?
Further research finds there are many common symptoms among these who have any of the conditions listed above (Lyme, EBV, chronic fatigue, adrenal insufficiency, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis).
First, I will start with the emotional component of common symptoms:
Here are a few emotional examples:
You feel grief, hurt, sorrow, loneliness, agitation, bitterness, frustration, or grouchiness. Feelings of loneliness, agitation, etc have become ingrained after the loss of a loved one.
You’ve been disrespected by someone you care about, and it has hurt you greatly.
You have a sense of anguish that may have occurred after not getting what you’ve worked for in a job or a career.
You may be intuitively keyed in to someone else’s depression or sadness.
You think that life is hopeless.
You may feel worthless.
You blame yourself for things that go wrong around you.
You believe you’re being treated unfairly.
You believe life should be different.
Here are a few possible physical examples that come with these conditions:
You feel tired, achy; you get repeated infections.
You can’t get your body out of bed.
You sleep later and later.
You can’t get to sleep or stay asleep.
When you move, you walk slowly and shuffle your feet.
Your legs feel like lead and your posture is droopy.
Your teeth clamp down and your hands are clenched.
Your face is flushed and hot.
You find yourself slamming doors and banging things.
Your hormones keep going up and down; if you’re a woman, your emotions are worse during the second part of your menstrual cycle or during menopause. If you’re a man over 50, you feel exhausted and lack energy; you don’t want to have sex.
You want to eat everything, or you don’t want to eat anything—you have no appetite.
You feel a lead-like pressure in your chest.
Your blood pressure goes up and down.
You’re short of breath.
You feel like you have a lump in your throat.
You can’t remember anything; you can’t focus, or you tend to focus on one thing that makes you anxious and marinate about it.
So, we have these "invisible" conditions, sometimes paired with hidden viruses, that can cause a cluster of symptoms, that can be activated by mold, wifi, stress, environmental chemicals, foods, etc and quite often, result in a myriad of diagnoses from the doctor. And, we also find clusters of symptoms that may show up when lab works looks pristine.
Sometimes, it can seem the more we research, the more questions they are. When really, I'm sure a lot of you, are thinking the best question of all, "How can I feel better?"
Let's keep digging to find that answer for you and uncover this mystery.
When we keep going down the rabbit trail of root cause, we find the mind body connection and a component of body depression at the root.
What is body depression? The emotions you have trapped in your body, on a conscious and subconscious level, have created inflammation in your immune system. The emotional part of you and the physical part of you is full of heat. You have burned through your cortisol which is affecting your hormones and immune system.
So, the big question is what can be done about it? What is the solution?
First, I am not a doctor, and I am not diagnosing, prescribing, treating, or healing.
Second, always speak to your doctor and work with them on your protocol.
While working with a doctor, taking pharmaceuticals, or even supplements, is great, and often necessary, but I do believe the answer involves extensively more that just supplements or medications. There is much more to address than just the chemical side of things. This is one of techniques I teach my students in my course, Abundant Body Regulation.
You have to approach the body and mind four ways:
So, you are working with your doctor, following their protocol for the chemical approach, and quite possibly the physical approach, which could look like movement, exercise, somatic release, and more.
You still will need to address the body and support the emotional and spiritual component of it, which is my specialty.
I help my clients shift the subconscious patterns of belief and their emotional states, and this is something that is necessary to bring the body back into homeostasis.
So, we now know that all of these symptoms, diagnoses, emotional patterns all have a root related to mind-body depression, and that the answer is to support the body as a whole: spiritually, physically, chemically, and emotionally.
Here are some steps to take to get started supporting the body emotionally and spiritually:
Prayer and Bible reading
Tapping with the affirmation: “I love my body and my body loves me.”
Moving the body through somatic releases
Connecting socially at coffee shops, recreational centers, churches, etc
Watch a funny video and laugh
Walk in nature
Sit in silence
Daily forgiving everyone and everything, including self
Be kind to your mind
Keep in mind, as you learn to support your body, there are three main organs involved in the mind-body depression that we can support to bring the body back into homeostasis. They are: stomach, spleen, and the kidneys. We can support these through a special visualization I created for them.
Begin to incorporate this visualization into your routine to balance the body:
If you feel this is all overwhelming, give yourself grace. Most people can’t balance the body from these debilitating symptoms alone. In order to get to the next level in your health journey, you will need someone who can come along side of you and help you.
This is what I do everyday with many amazing and wonderful clients, and I would be honored to be that person for you, helping you transform from the person who is exhausted, in pain, anxious, hopeless, uncomfortable in your body to the person who is now thriving, energetic, at peace, in love with your body and your life, feeling complete and whole.
