I’m so focused on my recovery from hashimotos. It’s been a very long difficult 2 years. But after making changes to my diet, taking correct supplements and going on T3 only I’ve felt so close to getting my life back! But there was something I was still missing...
I’ve been reading a lot on Izabella Wentz and believe my hashimotos was triggered when I got glandular fever (Epstein-Barr Virus - EBV) 20 years ago. I suffered with extremely bad symptoms and had fatigue ever since and ongoing issues with the Epstein-Barr virus.
I’ve repeated been prescribed aciclivor by the hospital during outbreaks. But never realised that this could be the missing link I had all along.
So yesterday I started taking a high dose of aciclivor which I’ll reduce in a few days to 400mg twice a day as a maintenance dose to suppress the virus. I hope this will then in conjunction with my other changes see a difference in my overall health. My main symptoms I still have are tremors and fatigue. The EBV affects the nervous system which I think is where my tremors are coming from.
I’m feeling very positive that this is what I’ve been looking for! If anyone has any success stories on taking a long term maintenance dose of anti viral medication to suppress EBV please comment. I’m sure it will not only help me but many others.
