Hi! I got a call from the nurse at my allergist's office. She said I tested postive for the Epstein Barr virus. Her recommendation was to take Lysine and Monolaurin and we would retest in a few months. (It is a naturopathic medical office.)
I have a phone call into my regular GP's office to get her interpretation of the results, but in the meantime I had a question:
Since most adults have been exposed to the Epstein Barr virus, does everyone test positive?
My concern is that this test might be a naturopathic "thing" like "yeast overgrowth" was in the 2000's. I fell for that one and taking the antifungals made my ulcerative proctitis (what was really wrong with me!) worse.
Any insights would be appreciated!
