I have a wonderful Rheumatologist who seems to be ahead of the game when it comes to innovative treatments for my disease. I have tried many supplements, bio-identical treatments, medications, etc. Unfortunately, I am a tricky case. I have MCS and I react to almost EVERYTHING!! So treatment options are limited.
I have Chronic EBV like so many with my diagnosis and I am waiting for XMRV results - but suspect I have it.
I started taking the supplement Lauricidin about a year ago at the direction of my Rheumatologist. To learn more about Lauricidin check out the link: http://www.lauricidin.com/. It is suppose to smother viruses, and I think that it has helped in my case. My sore throats, swollen lymphnodes, and headaches have diminished since I have been on Lauricidin.
But what was most encouraging was that my EBV Titers have dropped for the first time since I became sick in 2007.
The tricky thing with Lauricidin is not taking too much or else you will have a Herxheimer reaction http://www.lauricidin.com/herxheimer_reaction.asp . I have learned when I start to feel a reaction coming on to back off for a few days and then go back on it.
Lauricidin has also been used as a supplement for Herpes, Lyme's and HIV sufferers, so with the new discovery of XMRV in Chronic Neuro-Immune Disease ~ It just makes sense to me that Lauricidin may help smother XMRV as well. It is not a cure for these viruses/retroviruses ~ But if it helps to remove some of them from my body ~ then I am all for it!
I have a long way to go to become well again ~ but the Lauricidin has given me a boost in the right direction.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
