I have Hashimoto’s. The endocrinologist I see tested for past EBV infection as suspected something else contributing to my symptoms. And the test results say I have a past infection. He says there’s not much I can do other than to rest, and believes 8 weeks off work would help. I’m not averse to this if it would help.
I have read a couple of books with suggestions for getting rid of / diminishing the effects of the virus. Isabella Wentz’s Hashimoto’s Protocol recommends Valganciclovir, Lomatium, Cordyceps and Olive Leaf Extract. Aviva Romm’s Adrenal Thyroid Revolution suggests Echinacea, Lemon Balm, Licorice and St. John’s Wort.
Does anyone have any experience of this and any recommendations?
