Did you know that hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s can be caused by the Epstein Barr Virus, which can lead to many health consequences?
So where exactly does the Epstein Bar Virus (EBV) come into play with regards to your thyroid health?
The Epstein Barr Virus is a virus that causes mononucleosis (also known as “mono” or “glandular fever”).
When a person is infected with the Epstein-Barr virus, the body’s natural defense mechanisms begin to take aim at the virus.
However, unbalanced nutrition and lifestyle can lower and deplete the body’s immune response.
This then results in a low-grade latent infection, causing deficiencies and imbalances in the body that can then trigger an autoimmune reaction.
EBV is not only implicated with the development of autoimmune thyroid diseases, but also other autoimmune diseases as well. (1, 2, 3, 4)
It is understood that the Epstein-Barr virus and other herpes viruses persist in their hosts for life once they have been infected.
This means that an inactive virus can at some stage become active again if there are triggers for it, even after years of being dormant.
So the question is: how can you address EBV and reverse Hashimoto’s, improving the health of your thyroid?
