EVB, HCMC and HHV-6 tests and treatments


Has anyone out there being tested for Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), Human Cytomegalo Virus (HCMC) and Human Herpes Virus (HHV-6)? If so, how are these tests have being done?  

As a result has anyone been treated with VALACYCLOVIR and/or in combination with VALGANCICLOVIR particularly in UK? Can you please kindly give me some information on these. 

Thanking you all very much for your efforts and time.

ABC100,  I'm sorry you've had no replies.  There are discussions on the topics you've raised in the links below:


Thank you very much Clutter for guiding me towards some very usefull information site. With this now I am thinking some logistic steps to take that hopefully will help me. Like;

I will concentrate on GI problems/tests if I can find a doctor to help with this.

I will try to address fermenting gut issues.

I will learn about yeast infection in my body.

Find about hidden viruses, bacterias, parasites, organism etc.(HOW!!!!!!)

I will learn about Detoxing.

Check out vitamin/mineral deficiencies. B12 first then Magnesium and others..(much needed)

And also now I am little bit confused about Fish oils versus PEO (after listening Prof. Brian Peskin) but keep taking my Perilla Oil capsules.

I think these are huge undertakings for me. I have to start from somewhere....

Thanking you so much again. I am so gratefull that these communities exist. In my heart I have a long list of places/people I send my gratitude to which ends up with indeed internet.

Hi sheri44,

Are you replying to me? What do you mean?


Hi ABC100 , I'm in the UK and currently taking Acyclovir for chronic immune activation against chicken pox/shingles virus, which I had a very long time ago. I would have been prescribed Valacyclovir, had an EBV test come back positive - thank goodness that one was negative.

I've had some ups and downs on the Acyclovir, so I'd really appreciate being able to compare notes with you.
