The Importance of Sincere-Self-Work
Simulation Podcast – New Interview
THE WORK OF BERNHARD GUENTHER

Allen Saakyan from ‘Simulation’ visited me at my home in Topanga. We’ve had a great chat about various topics: The importance of sincere self-work, matrix programming/temptations, distortion of sexual energy (objectification of women), intellect vs. intuition, embodiment and more.

Occult Forces of Hyper-Dimensions – Entity Attachments and Interferences: Discernment, Clearing and Protection

A Webinar with Bernhard Guenther

  / Occult Forces of Hyper-Dimensions – Entity Attachments and Interferences: Discernment, Clearing and Protection
 

Anyone who is are familiar with my work knows that I write and talk a lot about the Hyperdimensional Matrix Control System, i.e. the non-physical occult hostile forces and their mechanisms which aim to keep us spiritually asleep. I first came across this “topic of all topics” about 20 years ago in the late 90s based on personal experiences and a life long “knowing” or intuition that there is ‘something else’ going on here on Planet Earth behind the veil of 3D physical reality. Since then I have done extensive research into this topic among many other topics in alignment with my own personal inner process — which eventually it lead me to the topic of entity interferences/attachments and occult knowledge in general. Throughout these years I have also learned the ‘hard way’ via direct experience, being attacked and interfered with by hyper-dimensional occult forces. I’ve shared my experiences in various writings, talks and interviews.

One of the questions I’ve been asked the most is “how can I protect and clear myself from entity attachments and interferences?” I have addressed this question in my work throughout the years. It’s impossible to answer this question in a short 10 point bulletin article without over-simplifying this topic. Many factors come in and each case is specific. There are various things to consider when it comes to occult forces and entity attachments/interferences from a psychological, esoteric, spiritual and metaphysical perspective; the micro-perspective of one’s personal soul journey (level of being) and the macro-perspective of the evolution of consciousness and the Time of Transition we are in right now.

 

In order to give a better understanding of this topic and answering this question I have complied all my research and insights from personal experiences and from having worked with people at my retreats/workshops and one-on-one online or in person over years. The result is this 8hr webinar with 125 slides divided in two parts. I’ve invested hundreds of hours of work over four months doing research; finding new relevant information and going back to older material and books, in order to put this webinar together. Most of the occult/esoteric material I have come across has confirmed my own experiences and insights. It’s not been easy to work on the webinar, at times, as I have experienced various forms of occult attacks and interferences while working on it (for obvious reasons) — yet, at the same time, I’ve also experienced divine guidance and help. This is the most comprehensive presentation I’ve given on this topic.

The intention of this webinar is to help you help yourself and give you practical tools to clear and protect yourself from possible entity attachments and hyper-dimensional psychic attacks. This webinar will also help you to get a better understanding of this topic in more depth, addressing the many misconceptions and over-simplifications surrounding this topic since it has become more popular. Even though it is an 8hr webinar, it still is just a summary of a deep and complex topic but it serves as a good foundation and will give you a comprehensive understanding of this topic. All the protection and clearing techniques presented in this webinar I have successfully applied myself and they’ve also worked for many clients I have worked with over the years.

Why gratitude is a bad idea and what to do instead – Jennifer Hoffman

 At some point we have to make our peace with a situation, 🙄 no matter how unfair, outrageous, controlling or annoying. As they say, “Your (uninformed) opinion of me is none of my business.” (However, threats will not be tolerated.) Peace is a state of mind.🙏🧘‍♀️ Don’t mess with my equanimity.🙌 I do not consent! ☮️ ~PB

Why gratitude is a bad idea and what to do instead

Published on Oct 11, 2018

It is hard, if not impossible, to be grateful for the terrible things that happen in our lives. Instead, we can accept the situation and plan our next steps. This helps us regain emotional and energetic control, then we can be grateful for the lessons we are learning.



Trying to be grateful without first accepting a situation and managing our energy around it is denying the truth of our anger, frustration, grief, trauma, and feelings of helplessness, lack of control, and powerlessness.


Deal with those first by stopping the energy leaks. Accept the situation, what is happening, stop withing it will go away, and plan your next steps, then you can be grateful for whatever it has taught you.


I recorded a short video with an overview of this and I hope it helps you understand why these energy downloads, which you think should be a wonderful experience, can become that but first they can bring a lot of physical pain and discomfort.


I will be talking more about this in the coming days because we must know the critical relationship that we have with energy on a physical level and how that relates to our intention, manifestation, 3D/5D integration, and ascension cycles so we can confidently make life changes that we can support, sustain, and be fully aligned with.


The video is on my youtube page so you can leave a comment there.

 

The Inside Story of Cannabidiol – What are the Benefits of CBD?

The Inside Story of Cannabidiol
– What are the Benefits of CBD?

http://CBDtheInsideStory.com

What is CBD oil? What are the benefits of CBD? How does CBD work? This is The Inside Story of Cannabidiol about the benefits and physiological effects of CBD on the human body. A couple of years ago a remarkable thing happened when CBD oil became legal in all 50 states. If you remove CBD from the THC coming from the cannabis plant or the hemp plant, CBD oil is now legal to use as a nutritional supplement. Since that time of course, the market for cannabis oil has exploded with interest. Truly, CBD is not just another nutritional supplement. This short conversation is going to describe the intense scientific research that is going on around the world on the benefits of CBD, or cannabidiol, and why it is so important for human physiology.

In our actual physiology where does CBD work? We are going to travel into our physiology. Right into our central nervous system. We are going to see at the level of individual cells that the cell surface is covered with these green receptors. These are receptors for CBD. When the CBD binds to that receptor it sends a message into the cell which travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell where the intelligence of our entire physiology is contained in our chromosomes. Here a chromosome will unwind and you are going to see the DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does. This is like the software that runs our physiology. Genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make. Including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology. Such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system. Our hormones that run our endocrine system and our cytokines that run our immune system. So we see that throughout our physiology we have receptors specifically designed to bind with cannabidiol and CBD has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made. Cannabidiol modulates the transcription of over 1100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system. Restoring homeostasis to both our immune and central nervous systems.

Bottom line… One of the benefits of cannabidiol is that it causes a cascade of Homeostasis through our entire central nervous system and our entire immune system. Why is this happening? As I mentioned before we have receptors in our body for CBD. This is called the endo-cannabinoid system. Back in medical school we didn’t’t even know about the endo-cannabinoid system. It was discovered in the 1990’s by Dr. Rafael Mechoulan from the Hebrew University in Israel. So the endo-cannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for CBD. In fact, there are more receptors for CBD in our body than any other kind of receptor.

So the endo-cannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology. Among other things Dr. Mechoulam also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in or body. This is Anandamide and 2AG. Those two are natural cannabinoids that our bodies make and bind to our CBD receptors. Our bodies are filled with CBD receptors. What kind of symptoms what kind of stress do all these things cause to us?

If your immune system is inflamed you might be suffering from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflamed bowel disease, lupus and thyroid. Or fibromyalgia or even multiple sclerosis. And you skin, psoriasis and eczema and all sorts of other chronic infections. Do you realize that many of things didn’t even exist 100 or 150 years ago. Incidences of these sorts of diseases is growing throughout the last century.

Now lets take a look at your central nervous system. If it is inflamed what types of things might you be suffering from? Brain fog, migraines, epilepsy, anxiety and PTSD, ADD, ADHD, autism and insomnia. Again, 100 or 150 years ago these kinds of symptoms, these kind of diseases where rare.

If you are suffering from any of these conditions, any of these symptoms, CBD might provide you with tremendous healing, tremendous relief, right through your own natural endo-cannabinoid system that brings homeostasis both to your immune system and to your central nervous system.

In conclusion, what have we learned from this conversation? That health is achieved through physiological homeostasis right through our natural endo-cannabinoid systems. Therefore, CBD is an indispensable catalyst for optimal health.

Natalie Glasson: Accessing What You Need Now by Lord Melchizedek | Sacred School of OM-Na

Accessing What You Need Now

by Lord Melchizedek
Channeled through Natalie Glasson – 31st August 2018 –
Original Source: Sacred School of OM-Na

Greetings, I am Lord Melchizedek, the overseer and Logos of the Universal Level. It is my purpose as an Ascended Master, a source of the Melchizedek consciousness and as a Christed Being to bring forth a sacred message to you at this most powerful time of your ascension. The energies anchoring at this time support openness, connection, empowerment, love and accessing your genuine self. This means that your ability to communicate with the Inner Planes is heightened and your ability to receive from the Inner Planes is empowered. Thus, a great wealth of wisdom, understanding, support, love, healing and guidance is available to you now, and you are being supported in receiving from the Inner Planes.

The Inner Planes are the spiritual planes of the Universe of the Creator, there are 352 levels of energy and existence which embodies all that is the Creator, allowing the full experience of the Creator. As spiritual beings existing on the Earth, many can be blind to the presence of the Inner Planes which exists both within them and around them, believing that only the Earth exists. They have yet to acknowledge that the wealth of wisdom, energy and creation that gave birth to the Earth is drawn from the Inner Planes. When human beings begin to remember this, they will recognise the synthesis between the Earth and the Inner Planes, realising that all they require can be drawn from the Inner Planes, within and around them, into manifestation. This requires a change in mindset and perspective, recognising that there is no need to lack in anything, that lack is only a pattern of thought manifested into existence by you. Once this realisation truly is embodied then you begin to access your Inner power of manifestation. With the perspective of all that you require in existence upon the Inner Planes while acknowledging the synthesis of the Earth and Inner Planes, you begin to remember your ability of, ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes.’

Calling Forth from the Inner Planes

Often many human beings feel a disconnection with the Inner Planes, even if they are aware of the Inner Planes, they see their earthly reality as completely separate. ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes,’ is a process that not only allows you to re-recognise the bond and synthesis between the Earth and the Inner Planes, realising their oneness, it also allows you to step into your power, releasing all forms of lack. ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes,’ is a simple process of calling the energies of the Inner places into manifestation within your physical reality. It is the perception that all you require is within the Inner Planes and simply requires to be anchored by you into your reality, which is most needed. With this perception and believe embodied, meaning that it is unquestionably true for you, then the act of calling forth from the Inner Planes becomes a powerful and magical tool of creating your reality the way you wish to live it on the Earth.

The Inner Planes Creates the Earth

I, Lord Melchizedek, wish to guide you in a meditation to promote your understanding and experience of the abundance that you wish to experience on the Earth being present upon the Inner Planes.
·         Please allow yourself to breathe deeply and enter an alert and peaceful state of being.
·         Imagine, visualise or acknowledge your presence upon the Earth, where you are right now, what is around you and the reality you experience. Feel yourself grounded into the Earth.

·         Imagine, visualise or acknowledge that all around you and within you in multicoloured light, this represents the Inner Planes, the Creator’s energy and dimensions are present within and around you. Recognise that abundance, prosperity, health, healing, material objects, experiences, in truth everything that is possible to experience on the Earth is present in energy and source form on the Inner Planes. It is from the Inner Planes that the energy of anything and everything you wish to experience and have previously experienced is drawn from and anchored into your reality. Allow yourself to realise that anything and everything is available to you. Breathe the abundant and fulfilling energy of the Inner Planes into your being and reality. Recognise that the Inner Planes are ready to serve you.

The Act of Calling Forth from the Inner Planes

First, there is a need to understand and recognise where in your life or reality you are experiencing lack. What is this lack like and what would create the fulfilment instead? Thus, dissolving the lack currently being experienced.

When observing the lack, allow yourself to explore the experience of lack, how it makes you feel, how it impacts your reality and self-esteem as well as the source of the lack. The source of the lack can be an emotion, past experience or something you call yourself. When you allow yourself to fully explore the lack for what it is, then you can clearly understand what you are missing in your life. An example, maybe you lack money, rather than simply deciding you need money, first engage with the experience of lack of money and discover what it is like to live your life with lack of money. In doing so you will discover what you are missing which could be self-worth, confidence, a feeling of being abundant, self-trust or something else. This helps you to acknowledge all levels of your experience of lack of money, from the physical experience to the impact it has on your being. With this understanding, you can formulate in your mind that which will create fulfilment, which in fact may be a few things, such as money, self-trust and a belief in your ability to create, it will be different for each person.

Once you have formulated an idea of that which will create fulfilment and dissolve the lack, then allow yourself to feel the resonance of the energy of the idea within your being. Feel as if you are embodying the energy of the formulated idea, vibrating as it.

Then repeat the below statement filling the gaps for your own needs:

‘I fully acknowledge and embody the understanding that the Inner Planes of the Creator’s Universe, from which everything is created, exists within and around me now. I call forth from the Inner Planes……………..…(What you would like to embody and experience)……………………….. as a full and appropriate manifestation to ground and anchor into my entire being and reality now. I embody the energy gifted to me and understand that it is through me receiving and embodying the energy that I will manifest the fulfilment I have called forth from the Inner Planes. It is through my actions, thoughts and Inner guidance that I will fully experience all I have called forth into manifestation.  Thank you.’

Take some time to experience this energetically, breathing the energy awoken and gifted to you from the Inner Planes into your being and reality, recognising how it impacts your being.

Continue to use the invocation each day to call forth from the Inner Planes that which you wish to experience. This means that it is advisable to focus upon the grounding of no more than three areas of fulfilment from the Inner Planes each day, as otherwise, you will not be available and present to recognise when the energies of the Inner Planes materialise.  Through this process and invocation, you are grounding the energies needed from the Inner Planes, then there is a need to allow for the materialisation process to take place which is the transformation of energy into physical matter or experience. In some cases, this could be instant or in may take some time. Patience and your continued focus upon the Inner Planes as a source of abundance of all forms, and your powerful tool of grounding the Inner Planes into manifestation upon the Earth will assist the manifestation process.

I, Lord Melchizedek, will be present to assist you,

Lord Melchizedek

Natalie Glasson: Awakening of Truth by the Angels of Alchemy


Our purpose at this moment is to deliver the truth through our beings to you. We are the Angels of Alchemy, we currently reside within the 7th Ray of Light, using the power surge of this ray devoted to the awakening ascension to support our mission of the alchemy and empowerment of truth. Please call us forth to be with you as you read our expression of energy to you through our words, we wish for you to experience our presence around you as well. We are instigators of inspiration, revelations and enlightenment, we bring forth to you a new clarity and opening that allows you to step into your truth and awareness of your truth. Our light is extremely bright and instantly attunes you to a higher vibration and aspect of your being, thus resulting in a clearer perception of yourself beyond illusions and the ego. This is such a blessing as it allows you to step into an aspect of yourself that you may never have previously considered or contemplated.

As the Angels of Alchemy of the 7th Ray of Light, our purpose is to instigate the synthesis of the Creator’s light to create a transformation. A transformation is a shift or opening of new energy. We recognise all energies as expressions of the Creator, whether you perceive them as negative or positive. We realise that when a negative energy, feeling or emotion activates within your being it is because you are not recognising a beautiful loving expression or energy of the Creator within you. A negative feeling or emotion is a response to a blindness within you to see, sense or acknowledge a powerful light expression which would serve you in the situation you are currently experiencing. We the Angels of Alchemy assist by directing you to the Creator’s expression within you that you are not allowing yourself to see or recognise which has the potential to ground the Creator more fully and empower your being. We assist you in connecting to the core of this Creator expression and fully embody it. There is a purpose for this as it heals and liberates you and brings transformation or at least a new perception to your current situation, an opening which may not have been visible before.

With this new energy activated, we, the Angels of Alchemy, wish to further your experience of transformation or an opening of an energy flow to serve you. We, the Angels of Alchemy bring to you an energy or expression of the Creator which when synthesised with the energy discovered within your being will truly create a shift. While it seems as if the energy is given and delivered through us into your being, we are simply demonstrating to you a reflection of the same energy within you. In many ways the energy previously activated which we will call energy one and the energy we transmit/ activate within you which we will name energy two, have always been present within your being and are united and synthesised already. The alchemy and transformation we speak of is not the integration of energy one and energy two, as this has always been the case, instead it is the realisation of the united energies which brings both energies into embodiment within your being, body and reality. When energy one and energy two are grounded into you, they create a shift as if your entire being is reprogrammed and realigned to the energies. The true experience of the alchemy process becomes fully present within you, creating empowerment, new realisations, clarity and a new energy to create from. It is an awakening of your truth that allows you to become your truth and even realise your truth.

We the Angels of Alchemy, support this entire process especially the grounding of the united energies into your entire being and reality. To further your experience with us and to assist you in acknowledging that which we speak of, we, wish to share with you a summary and step by step guide for you to use in your everyday life.

Summary of Awakening Truth

1.       Realise a negatively impacting situation in your life or a limiting feeling, sensation or mood when it arises in your day. Let your awareness of yourself observe and acknowledge when you are impacted negatively without judgment or even creating an opinion.

2.       Realise that the negative or limiting energy such as anger, fear or sadness activating is manifesting because you are not allowing yourself to view, accept and embody an energy or expression of the Creator that is awe inspiring and will serve you. Be willing to view this energy that is already present within you.

3.       Ask us, the Angels of Alchemy, to lead you to this energy or expression of the Creator which will serve you and is within your being now. As you focus within, let us guide you to a liberating energy and aspect of the Creator that is waiting to be acknowledged.

4.       Ask us, the Angels of Alchemy, to support your full experience of this sacred energy so you feel you are embraced in the energy.

5.       Now take time to view that which occurred within your reality or the thought that created your limiting and negative feeling, how does it feel now? Are you able to see from a new perceptive or with greater clarity?

6.       Call upon us, the Angels of Alchemy, to bring forth to you an energy or expression of the Creator that when recognise within you as united with the energy you have just activated would create a shift and lasting opening of energy within your being and reality.

7.       Experience, breathe in and absorb the light and energy we share with you, accept it into all aspects of your being and allow yourself to recognise how the energy makes you feel and that it is activating from within your being.

8.       Acknowledge the two energies, energy one and energy two, recognise they have always been present within your being and are always synthesised and united.

9.       ‘Angels of Alchemy, I invite you now to anchor and ground the energy of …………………. and the energy of …………………………. as their synthesised and united presence into my entire being, body and reality now. Please aid and assist my embodiment and full acceptance of this energy within my being. Allow and support me in recognising the shift, transformation and opening to a new energy that manifests within my being now due to my acknowledgement and embodiment of the synthesis of these two energies. Allow me to fully experience the transformation and awakening of truth occurring within me, the reprogramming of my entire being and a greater sense of clarity. Allow me to relax fully into the energy I am embodying now and its impact upon my being. Thank you and so it is.’

Take time to enjoy the insightful and illuminating process.

10.   When you feel ready think of the situation or thought that created the negative or limiting feeling and allow yourself to perceive it differently, accessing a new understanding and realising the action that needs to be taken.

We, the Angels of Alchemy, perceive this as an awakening of truth within your being and a connection between your truth and your reality which is so vital now in the current stages of ascension. We are present to serve you in recognising your truth in the most loving way.

It is important to realise that you are an embodiment of the alchemy of the Creator, it is through your being that openings for the Creator’s energy to transform and open into new possibilities take place. Take a moment to acknowledge and embody this understanding fully.

With acknowledgement of the Alchemy of the Creator within you,

The Angels of Alchemy

EPSTEIN-BARR VIRUS, CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME, AND FIBROMYALGIA | GOOP

Wow! Fascinating read! As one who suffered from symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia in the late nineties, and followed an unconventional alternative health protocol, this information is validating!

I implemented the protocol outlined by a doctor who had successfully treated thousands of people, back in the days when most doctors had never even heard of it, and thought you were a hypochondriac.

In addition to that I added a cumulative series of energy work meditations, called MAPS, Working with a medical team on the the Etheric level.

It was during one of these cumulative sessions that I emerged feeling the energy leaving my body through my arms. I had a deep, profound sense of well being, and I knew I would never be that sick again. And I never was. However, I have since developed a thyroid issue and sleep problems which could be related to EVB without me realizing it.

The Medical Medium—and What’s Potentially at the Root of Medical Mysteries

Fascinating but Inexplicable Fascinating but Inexplicable

The Medical Medium—and What’s Potentially at the Root of Medical Mysteries

In the foreword to Medical Medium, Alejandro Junger, M.D. writes, “As a man of science, I have been taught to the point of indoctrination that I must only trust what I can observe, measure, test, and reproduce.” But Junger then goes on to explain his career-long fascination with healers—those who can bring sight back through touch, or restore the mysteriously ailing to health. Sure, it sounds really out there, but one of the reasons we lean on Junger so heavily over here at goop is because he’s always willing to question the status quo—and to acknowledge that he might not have all the answers.

One of the unlikely places where Junger has found surprising—and according to him, spot-on—answers is from Anthony William, a self-titled Medical Medium, who has heard a force he calls Spirit in his ear since he was a toddler. As he recounts in his book, the vision of a man appeared at the dinner table one night when he was four years old and beckoned him to stand in front of his grandmother, put his hand on her chest, and say “lung cancer.” Plagued by curiosity, his parents took his grandmother to the doctor a few weeks later, and sure enough, she had a late stage lung cancer that had metastasized. And according to William, Spirit—though not visibly present—has been with him ever since.

William has a robust business—apparently the waiting list is years-long, half of his clients are doctors looking for advice on behalf of incurable patients, and he attends to callers by lottery—but he’s put some of his foundational knowledge into a book, which he’s quick to point out has absolutely nothing in the way of medical study footnotes or citations. As he explains, “It’s all new.” The focus is on “mystery illnesses,” i.e., a group of diseases that many physicians have been quick to dismiss as psychosomatic—and which primarily affect women—including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s, and Epstein-Barr virus. (More on EBV below.)

The book is a fascinating read, whether plausible or not. His personal story is compelling, and his discussion of disease and disease states is really interesting, even if you’re not personally affected. Below, you’ll find a chapter about Epstein-Barr Virus from Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. For more from Anthony William on goop, see A Heavy Metal Detox, Mysteries of the Thyroid, and Why We Shouldn’t Dismiss Iodine.

EPSTEIN-BARR VIRUS, CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME, AND FIBROMYALGIA | GOOP

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has created a secret epidemic. Out of the roughly 320 million people in the U.S., over 225 million Americans have some form of EBV.

Epstein-Barr is responsible for mystery illnesses of every category: For some people, it creates fatigue and pain that go unnamed. For others, EBV symptoms prompt doctors to prescribe ineffective treatments, such as hormone replacement. And for so many people walking around with EBV, it gets misdiagnosed.

Among the reasons EBV is thriving: so little is understood about it. Medical communities are aware of only one version of EBV, but there are actually over 60 varieties. Epstein-Barr is behind several of the debilitating illnesses that stump doctors. As I said in the Introduction, it’s the mystery illness of mystery illnesses.

Doctors have no idea how the virus operates long-term and how problematic it can be. The truth is, EBV is the source of numerous health problems that are currently considered mystery illnesses, such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. EBV is also the cause of some major maladies that medical communities think they understand but really don’t—including thyroid disease, vertigo, and tinnitus.

This chapter explains when the Epstein-Barr virus arose, how it’s transmitted, how it operates to create untold havoc in strategic stages no one knows about, and the steps (never revealed before) that can destroy the virus and restore health.

EPSTEIN-BARR ORIGINS AND TRANSMISSION

Though Epstein-Barr was discovered by two brilliant physicians in 1964, it had actually begun taking hold in the early 1900s—over half a century before. EBV’s initial versions—which are still with us—are relatively slow to act, and might not even create notable symptoms until late in life. Even then, they’re only mildly harmful. Many people have these non-aggressive EBV strains.

Unfortunately, EBV has evolved over the decades, and each generation of the virus has grown more challenging than the one before.

Until the publication of this book, those with EBV would typically be stuck with it for the rest of their lives. Doctors seldom recognize EBV as the root cause of the myriad of problems it creates; plus doctors have no idea how to address the Epstein-Barr virus even when it is recognized.

There are many ways to catch EBV. For example, you can get it as a baby if your mother has the virus. You can also get it through infected blood. Hospitals don’t screen for the virus, so any blood transfusion puts you at risk. You can even get it from eating out! That’s because chefs are under tremendous pressure to get dishes prepared quickly. They often end up cutting a finger or hand, slapping on a Band-Aid, and continuing to work. Their blood can get into the food…and if they happen to have EBV during a contagious phase, that can be enough to infect you.

Transmission can also happen through other bodily fluids, such as those exchanged during sex. Under some circumstances, even a kiss can be enough to transmit EBV.

Someone with the virus isn’t contagious all the time, though. It’s most likely to spread during its Stage Two. Which brings up something else that until now hasn’t been revealed: EBV goes through four stages.

EPSTEIN-BARR STAGE ONE

If you catch EBV, it goes through an initial dormant period of floating around in your bloodstream doing little more than slowly replicating itself to build its numbers—and waiting for an opportunity to launch a more direct infection.

For example, if you physically exhaust yourself for weeks and give yourself no chance to fully recover, or allow your body to become deprived of essential nutrients such as zinc or vitamin B12, or undergo a traumatic emotional experience such as a breakup or the death of a loved one, the virus will detect your stress-related hormones and choose that time to take advantage.

EBV will also often act when you’re undergoing a major hormonal change—for example, during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. A common scenario is when a woman goes through childbirth. Afterward, she may feel various symptoms, including fatigue, aches and pains, and depression. In this case EBV isn’t exploiting your weakness, but the fact that hormones are a powerful food source for it—their abundance acts as a trigger. The hormones flooding through your body effectively does for the virus what spinach does for Popeye.

EBV is inhumanly patient. This Stage One period of fortifying itself and waiting for an ideal opportunity can take weeks, months, or even a decade or longer, depending on a variety of factors.

The virus is especially vulnerable during Stage One. However, it’s also undetectable through tests and causes no symptoms, so you normally wouldn’t know to fight it, because you wouldn’t be aware it was there.

EPSTEIN-BARR STAGE TWO

At the end of Stage One, the Epstein-Barr virus is ready to do battle with your body. That’s when EBV first makes its presence known…by turning into mononucleosis. This is the infamous mono that we all grow up hearing about as the “kissing disease.” It’s what thousands of college students contract every year when they run themselves down with all-night partying and studying.

Medical communities are unaware that every case of mononucleosis is only Stage Two of EBV.

This is the period when the virus is most contagious. It’s therefore advisable to avoid getting exposed to blood, saliva, or other bodily fluids from someone who has mono…or to avoid exposing anyone to your fluids if you have mono.

During this Stage Two, your body’s immune system goes to war with the virus. It sends identifier cells to “tag” virus cells, i.e., place a hormone on them that marks them as invaders. It then sends soldier cells to seek out and kill the tagged virus cells. This is the power of your immune system coming to your defense.

How severely this battle rages will vary from person to person, because everyone is different, and it will also depend on what EBV strain or variety a person has. You can have mono for just a week or two with a mild scratchy throat and tiredness, in which case you aren’t likely to realize what’s really happening, so you most likely won’t visit a doctor for a blood test.

Then again, you can get hit hard with fatigue, sore throat, fever, headaches, rashes, and more that hang on for several months. If this happens, the chances are you’ll go see a doctor who’ll test your blood, and the Epstein-Barr virus will show up as a form of mono…most of the time.

It’s during this stage that EBV seeks a long-term home by making a run for one or more of your major organs—typically your liver and/or spleen. EBV loves being in these organs because mercury, dioxins, and other toxins are likely to accumulate there. The virus thrives on these poisons.

One other secret about EBV is that it has a best friend, a bacterium called Streptococcus. In such cases your body is dealing with not only a virus, but also bacteria that further confuse the immune system and produce their own array of symptoms. This is Epstein-Barr’s number one cofactor.

During EBV’s Stage Two, Streptococcus can travel up to create strep throat and/or infest the sinuses, nose, or mouth. It can also travel down to create infections in the urinary tract, vagina, kidneys, or bladder . . . eventually causing cystitis.

EPSTEIN-BARR STAGE THREE

Once the virus settles into your liver, spleen, and/or other organs, it nests there.

From this point on, when a doctor tests for Epstein-Barr, she or he will find antibodies and take these to indicate a past infection, when EBV was in its mono phase. The doctor will not find the EBV presently active in the bloodstream. The confusion here is one of the biggest blunders in medical history—this is how this virus has slipped through the cracks. Unless you have already followed the measures outlined in this book to kill the EBV, the virus is, in fact, still alive and causing new symptoms…and it’s eluding the tests. That’s because it’s living in the liver, spleen, or other organs, and the test to detect this has not yet been invented.

With the virus hiding undetected in your organs, your body assumes it’s won the war and the invader has been destroyed. Your immune system returns to its normal state, your mononucleosis ends, and your doctor tells you that you’re healthy.

Unfortunately, the Epstein-Barr virus has barely begun its voyage through your body.

If you have a typical variety, EBV could lie dormant in your organs for years—possibly for decades—without your knowing it. If you have an especially aggressive variety, though, EBV may create serious problems even while it’s nesting.

For example, the virus may burrow deep into your liver and spleen, causing those organs to become inflamed and enlarged. And once again, keep in mind that your doctor does not know to connect the dots between past EBV and its present activity in the organs.

The virus also creates three types of poison:

  • EBV excretes toxic waste matter, or viral byproduct. This becomes increasingly significant as the virus grows more cells, and its expanding army keeps eating and excreting poisonous byproduct. This waste matter is often identified as spirochetes, which can trigger false positives on tests such as Lyme titers (screening tests for Lyme disease) and lead to a false diagnosis of Lyme.
  • When a cell of the virus dies—which happens often, as the cells have a six-week life cycle—the corpse that is left behind is itself toxic and so further poisons your body. As with viral byproduct, this problem becomes more severe as EBV’s army grows, creating fatigue.
  • The poisons EBV creates through these two processes have the ability to generate a neurotoxin—i.e., a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system. It will secrete this special toxin at strategic periods during Stage Three, and continuously during Stage Four, to prevent your immune system from zeroing in on the virus and attacking it.

The issues that may result from an aggressive variety of EBV nesting in your organs include:

  • Your liver performing so sluggishly that it does a poor job of flushing toxins out of your system.
  • Hepatitis C. (EBV is actually the primary cause of hepatitis C.)
  • Your liver’s sluggish performance leading to the lowering of your stomach’s hydrochloric acid and your intestinal tract starting to become toxic. This in turn can result in some food not being fully digested and instead putrefying in your intestinal tract, resulting in bloating and/or constipation.
  • Your developing sensitivities to foods that never caused you problems before. This happens when the virus consumes a food it likes, such as cheese, and transforms it into something your body doesn’t recognize.
  • The virus bides its time until it senses stress-related hormones indicating you’re in an especially vulnerable state—say, as a result of burning the candle at both ends, enduring a severe emotional blow, or suffering a physical jolt such as being in a car accident—or when it senses you’re undergoing hormonal upheaval, such as during pregnancy or menopause.

When the virus is nearly ready to spring, it begins excreting its neurotoxin. This adds to the burden on your system already created by EBV’s byproduct and virus corpses. All this poison in your system finally triggers your immune system—and also thoroughly confuses it, because it has no idea where the toxins are coming from.

Lupus

The immune system response I’ve just described triggers the mysterious symptoms that doctors can diagnose as lupus. Medical communities have no understanding that lupus is just the body reacting to Epstein-Barr’s byproducts and neurotoxins. It’s the body having an allergic reaction to these neurotoxins, which then elevates the inflammatory markers that doctors search for to identify and diagnose lupus. In truth, lupus is just a viral infection of Epstein-Barr.

Hypothyroidism and Other Thyroid Disorders

While your immune system is in disarray, EBV takes advantage of the chaos by leaving the organs it’s been nesting in and making a run for a different major organ or gland—which this time is your thyroid!

Medical communities aren’t yet aware that EBV is the actual cause of most thyroid disorders and diseases—especially Hashimoto’s, but also Graves’, thyroid cancer, and other thyroid ills. (Thyroid disease is also sometimes caused by radiation; but in over 95 percent of cases, the culprit is Epstein-Barr.) Medical research has not yet uncovered the true causes of thyroid disorders, and it’s still decades away from discovering that EBV is the virus that causes them. If a doctor gives you a Hashimoto’s diagnosis, it really means that she or he doesn’t know what’s wrong. The claim is that your body is attacking your thyroid—a view that arises from misinformation. In truth, it’s the EBV—not your body—attacking the thyroid.

Once in your thyroid, EBV begins drilling into its tissues. The virus cells literally twist and spin like drills to burrow deep into the thyroid, killing thyroid cells and scarring the organ as they go, creating hidden hypothyroidism in millions of women, from mild cases to the more extreme. Your immune system notices this and tries to intervene, causing inflammation; but between EBV’s neurotoxin, viral byproduct, and poisonous corpses confusing things, and with EBV hiding in your thyroid, your immune system can’t tag the virus for complete destruction.

While the above may sound unnerving, don’t let it rattle you; your thyroid has the ability to rejuvenate and heal itself when it’s given what it needs. And never underestimate the power of your immune system, which by the end of this chapter will become activated just by you learning the truth.

As a fallback option, your immune system tries to wall off the virus with calcium, creating nodules in your thyroid. However, this doesn’t hurt EBV. First, most of its cells evade this attack and remain free. Second, a virus cell that your immune system successfully walls off typically remains alive and turns its calcium prison into a comfortable home, where it feeds on your thyroid, draining it of energy. The virus cell might even eventually transform its prison into a living growth, called a cyst, that creates further strain on your thyroid.

Meanwhile, these attacks against EBV can hurt you if you aren’t eating enough calcium-rich foods. That’s because if your immune system can’t get the calcium to wall off the virus from your bloodstream, it’ll extract what it needs from your bones…which can lead to osteoporosis.

Simultaneously, the hundreds of virus cells that aren’t imprisoned in nodules can weaken your thyroid, making it less effective at producing the hormones your body needs to function. This lack of adequate thyroid hormones, coupled with EBV’s toxins, can in turn lead to weight gain, fatigue, mental fogginess, impaired memory, depression, hair loss, insomnia, brittle nails, muscle weakness, and/or dozens of other symptoms.

Some especially rare, aggressive varieties of EBV go even further. They create cancer in the thyroid. The rate of thyroid cancer in the U.S. has been rising rapidly. Medical communities don’t know that the cause is an increase in rare, aggressive forms of EBV.

The Epstein-Barr virus invades your thyroid for a strategic reason—it’s seeking to confuse and place stress on your endocrine system. The strain on your adrenal glands produces more adrenaline, which is a favored food of EBV that makes it stronger and better able to go after its ultimate target: your nervous system.

EPSTEIN-BARR STAGE FOUR

The ultimate goal of the Epstein-Barr virus is to leave your thyroid and inflame your central nervous system.

Your immune system normally wouldn’t allow this to happen. But if EBV has successfully worn you down in Stage Three by entering your thyroid, and if on top of that you abruptly get clobbered with some physical or severe emotional injury, the virus will take advantage of your vulnerability and start to cause a multitude of strange symptoms that range from heart palpitations to generalized aches and pains to nerve pain.

A common scenario is being in an accident, getting surgery, or suffering some other physical damage, and then feeling awful for much longer than would be expected from the injury alone. A typical reaction is to “feel like a truck hit me.”

Blood tests, X-rays, and MRIs will reveal nothing wrong, so doctors won’t be aware of the virus inflaming the nerves. Stage Four Epstein-Barr is therefore a major source of mystery illnesses—that is, problems that cause doctors massive confusion.

What’s actually happening is that your injured nerves trigger an “alarm” hormone to notify your body that the nerves are exposed and need repair. In Stage Four, EBV detects that hormone and rushes over to latch onto those damaged nerves.

A nerve is similar to a string of yarn with little root hairs hanging off it. When the nerve is injured, the root hairs pop off the sides of the nerve sheath. EBV looks for those openings and grabs onto them. If it succeeds, it can keep the area inflamed for years. As a result, you can have a relatively small injury that remains flared up and causes you continual pain.

The issues that result from this viral inflammation can include muscle pain, joint pain, painful tender points, back pain, tingling and/or numbness in the hands and feet, migraines, ongoing fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, unrestful sleep, and night sweats. Patients with these issues are sometimes diagnosed as having fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or rheumatoid arthritis, all of which are collections of symptoms that medical communities admit they don’t understand and for which they have no cure. In such cases the patients are given inappropriate treatments that don’t begin to address the real culprit—because these mystery illnesses are really Stage Four Epstein-Barr.

One of the greatest missteps of all time is mistaking women’s Epstein-Barr symptoms for perimenopause and menopause. Symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, heart palpitations, dizziness, depression, hair loss, and anxiety were and are frequently misinterpreted as hormonal change—which is what launched the disastrous HRT movement. (To learn more, see Chapter 15, “Premenstrual Syndrome and Menopause.”)

Let’s take a closer look at the chronic illnesses that have puzzled doctors for decades and are the result of Stage Four Epstein-Barr.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There’s a long history of womankind facing denial that there’s a physical cause of their suffering. Like those with fibromyalgia (see below), people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)—also known by names such as myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), and systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID)—often hear that they are liars, lazy, delusional, and/or crazy. It’s an illness that affects women in disproportionately large numbers.

And chronic fatigue syndrome is on the rise.

It’s becoming common for young women in college to return home mid-semester with the condition, unable to do anything but lie in bed. Contracting CFS as a woman in your late teens or early 20s can be particularly devastating as you watch friends move on with relationships and jobs, meanwhile feeling stuck and unable to live up to your potential.

Women who get CFS in their 30s, 40s, or 50s have their own obstacles: while you’re old enough at this point to have an established life and support network, you also have established responsibilities. You’re likely trying to be everything to everybody, taking care of more than you can handle, and so you feel the pressure to act normal when CFS hits.

Compounding the isolation for both age groups are the feelings of guilt, fear, and shame that accompany their misdiagnoses. I’m sure that if you have CFS, you’ve been in the depths of physical suffering and had someone say, “But you look perfectly healthy.” It is so disheartening to feel unwell and hear from practitioners, friends, or family that there’s nothing wrong with you.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is real. It’s the Epstein-Barr virus.

As we’ve seen, those with CFS have an elevated viral load of EBV, which systematically afflicts the body by creating a neurotoxin that inflames the central nervous system. This can eventually weaken the adrenals and digestive system, and create the feeling that you have a low battery.

Fibromyalgia

We’ve had over six decades of medical denial that fibromyalgia is a legitimate problem. Now, medical communities are finally accepting it as an actual condition.

The best explanation doctors are given by the establishment, though, is that fibromyalgia is overactive nerves. What this really translates to is…no one has a clue. It’s not the doctors’ fault.
There’s no magic book they receive that tells them what will help their fibromyalgia patients or what is genuinely causing their pain.

The medical system is still years from discovering the illness’s true root—because it’s viral, and it takes place at a nerve level that medical tools currently can’t detect.

Those suffering from fibromyalgia are under a very real and debilitating attack. It’s the Epstein-Barr virus that is causing this disorder, inflaming both the central nervous system and nerves throughout the body, which creates ongoing pain, sensitivity to touch, severe fatigue, and a host of other issues.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ear, is usually caused by EBV getting into the inner ear’s nerve channel, called the labyrinth. The ringing is the result of the virus inflaming and vibrating the labyrinth and the vestibulocochlear nerve.

Vertigo and Meniere’s Disease

Vertigo and Meniere’s disease are often attributed by doctors to calcium crystals, or stones, becoming disrupted in the inner ear. However, most chronic cases are actually caused by EBV’s neurotoxin inflaming the vagus nerve.

Other Symptoms

Anxiety, dizziness, chest tightness, chest pain, esophageal spasms, and asthma can also be caused by EBV inflaming the vagus nerve.

Insomnia, and tingling and numbness in hands and feet, can be caused by phrenic nerves becoming perpetually inflamed by EBV.

And heart palpitations can result from buildup of EBV’s poisonous virus corpses and byproduct in the heart’s mitral valve.

If you have EBV, or suspect you do, you may find the virus in Stage Four beyond frustrating. Take comfort. If you take the right steps—which medical communities don’t know about yet, but which are covered at the end of this chapter—you can recover, rebuild your immune system, return to a normal state again, and regain control of your life.

TYPES OF EPSTEIN-BARR

As I’ve noted earlier, there are over 60 varieties of the Epstein-Barr virus. That number is so large because EBV has existed for well over 100 years. It’s had generations of people to move through, mutating and elevating its various hybrids and strains in that time. The strains can be organized into six groups of escalating severity, with roughly ten types per group.

EBV Group 1 is the oldest and mildest. These versions of the virus typically take years, even decades, to transition from one stage to another. Their effects might not be noticeable until you’re in your 70s or 80s, and then result in little more than back pain. They might even remain in your organs and never reach Stage Three or Stage Four.

EBV Group 2 moves from stage to stage a bit quicker than Group 1; you might notice symptoms in your 50s or 60s. These varieties may partially linger in the thyroid and send only some of their virus cells out to inflame nerves, resulting in relatively mild nerve inflammation. The only variety of EBV that medical communities are aware of is in this group.

EBV Group 3 will transition between stages faster than Group 2, so its symptoms might be noticeable around age 40. Also, these viruses fully complete Stage Four—that is, they entirely leave the thyroid to latch onto nerves. Viruses in this group can cause a variety of ills, including joint pain, fatigue, heart palpitations, tinnitus, and vertigo.

EBV Group 4 will create noticeable problems as early as age 30. Its aggressive actions on nerves can result in symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, brain fog, confusion, anxiety, moodiness, and everything caused by Groups 1 to 3. This group can also create symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, even if a person never underwent any trauma beyond getting inflamed by the virus.

EBV Group 5 will create noticeable issues as early as age 20. This is an especially nasty form of the virus because it strikes just when a young person is setting out to start an independent life. It can create all the problems of Group 4, and it feeds off negative emotions such as fear and worry. Doctors who can’t find anything wrong, and perceive these patients as young and healthy, often declare “it’s all in your head” and send them to psychologists to convince them what’s actually happening in their bodies isn’t real. Unless, that is, a patient happens upon a doctor who’s up on the Lyme disease trend, in which case the patient will probably walk away with a Lyme misdiagnosis.

The worst type, however, is EBV Group 6, which can strike hard even in young children. In addition to everything Group 5 does, Group 6 can create symptoms so severe that they’re misdiagnosed as leukemia, viral meningitis, lupus, and more. Plus it suppresses the immune system, which can lead to a wide variety of symptoms including rashes, weakness in the limbs, and severe nerve pain.

HEALING FROM THE EPSTEIN-BARR VIRUS

Because it’s very easy to catch and hard to detect, and can cause a number of mysterious symptoms, you might understandably find the Epstein-Barr virus overwhelming and its effects disheartening.

The good news is that if you carefully and patiently follow the steps detailed in this section, and in Part IV of the book, you can heal. You can recover your immune system, free yourself of EBV, rejuvenate your body, gain full control over your health, and move on with your life.

How long the process takes varies for each individual and depends on myriad factors. Some people conquer the virus in as little as three months. However, a more typical period is a full year. And there are some people who need 18 months or more to destroy EBV.

Healing Foods

Certain fruits and vegetables can help your body rid itself of EBV and heal from its effects. The following are the best ones to incorporate into your diet (listed in rough order of importance). Try to eat at least three of these foods per day—the more the better—rotating your consumption so that in a given week or two, you get all of these foods into your system.

  • Wild blueberries: help restore the central nervous system and flush EBV neurotoxins out of the liver.
  • Celery: strengthens hydrochloric acid in the gut and provides mineral salts to the central nervous system.
  • Sprouts: high in zinc and selenium to strengthen the immune system against EBV.
  • Asparagus: cleanses the liver and spleen; strengthens the pancreas.
  • Spinach: creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system.
  • Cilantro: removes heavy metals such as mercury and lead, which are favored foods of EBV.
  • Parsley: removes high levels of copper and aluminum, which feed EBV.
  • Coconut oil: antiviral and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
  • Garlic: antiviral and antibacterial that defends against EBV.
  • Ginger: helps with nutrient assimilation and relieves spasms associated with EBV.
  • Raspberries: rich in antioxidants to remove free radicals from the organs and bloodstream.
  • Lettuce: stimulates peristaltic action in the intestinal tract and helps cleanse EBV from the liver.
  • Papayas: restore the central nervous system; strengthen and rebuild hydrochloric acid in the gut.
  • Apricots: immune system rebuilders that also strengthen the blood.
  • Pomegranates: help detox and cleanse the blood as well as the lymphatic system.
  • Grapefruit: rich source of bioflavonoids and calcium to support the immune system and flush toxins out of the body.
  • Kale: high in specific alkaloids that protect against viruses such as EBV.
  • Sweet potatoes: help cleanse and detox the liver from EBV byproducts and toxins.
  • Cucumbers: strengthen the adrenals and kidneys and flush neurotoxins out of the bloodstream.
  • Fennel: contains strong antiviral compounds to fight off EBV.

Healing Herbs and Supplements

The following herbs and supplements (listed in rough order of importance) can further strengthen your immune system and aid your body in healing from the virus’s effects:

  • Cat’s claw: herb that reduces EBV and cofactors such as strep A and strep B.
  • Silver hydrosol: lowers EBV viral load.
  • Zinc: strengthens the immune system and protects the thyroid from EBV inflammation.
  • Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin and/or adenosylcobalamin): strengthens the central nervous system.
  • Licorice root: lowers EBV production and strengthens the adrenals and kidneys.
  • Lemon balm: antiviral and antibacterial. Kills EBV cells and strengthens the immune system.
  • 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate): helps strengthen the endocrine system and central nervous system.
  • Selenium: strengthens and protects the central nervous system.
  • Red marine algae: powerful antiviral that removes heavy metals such as mercury and reduces viral load.
  • L-lysine: lowers EBV load and acts as a central nervous system anti-inflammatory.
  • Spirulina (preferably from Hawaii): rebuilds the central nervous system and eliminates heavy metals.
  • Ester-C: strengthens the immune system and flushes EBV toxins from the liver.
  • Nettle leaf: provides vital micronutrients to the brain, blood, and central nervous system.
  • Monolaurin: antiviral; breaks down EBV load and reduces cofactors.
  • Elderberry: antiviral; strengthens the immune system.
  • Red clover: cleanses the liver, lymphatic system, and spleen of neurotoxins from EBV.
  • Star anise: antiviral; helps destroy EBV in the liver and thyroid.
  • Curcumin: component of turmeric that helps strengthen the endocrine system and central nervous system.

CASE HISTORIES

A Career Almost Lost to Epstein-Barr

Michelle and her husband, Matthew, both had high-paying corporate jobs. Michelle was a star at her firm and made a point of going to work throughout her pregnancy, leaving only when she was about to go into labor.

After giving birth, Michelle instantly fell in love with her new son, Jordan. She couldn’t have been happier. I have it all now, she thought, a career I love, and a family I love even more.

But Michelle’s bright future started to dim when she was struck with a fatigue she couldn’t shake. No matter how many vitamins she took or how much she exercised, she felt run-down all the time. So Michelle visited her doctor. After giving her a physical, he dismissed her concerns: “You look fine to me. It’s natural for a new baby to be exhausting. Just get more sleep and don’t worry about it.”

Michelle took care to sleep more. After another week, she felt worse than ever. Suspecting a post-pregnancy issue, Michelle went to see her OB/GYN. This doctor drew her blood for a number of tests, including several for thyroid disease. When the lab results came in, the OB/GYN correctly diagnosed Michelle as having Hashimoto’s—i.e., her thyroid was no longer producing the level of hormones needed.

Michelle was put on thyroid medication to get her hormone levels back to normal. This made her feel a little better…though not quite as well as she had before her pregnancy. She’d been aiming to return to work a month after having her son, and now she had to postpone those plans.

After about six months, Michelle’s fatigue was back—and much more severe. That’s when Michelle’s troubles really began. Soon she had trouble taking care of Jordan. Matthew agreed to help out until she felt better.

Instead, Michelle grew worse. On top of being tired, she started to feel aches and pains, especially in her joints. Michelle returned to her OB/GYN, who ran another set of tests. The lab results showed nothing wrong. Thanks to the thyroid medication Michelle was continuing to take, her thyroid levels were perfect. So were all her vitamin and mineral levels. The OB/GYN was baffled.

Suspecting that Michelle’s symptoms were related to her thyroid condition, the OB/GYN referred Michelle to a top endocrinologist (a doctor who specializes in hormonal issues). The specialist conducted a thorough thyroid profile, and tested Michelle’s other hormone levels from a variety of angles. He ended up telling Michelle she had “mild adrenal fatigue.”

There was some small truth to that. Michelle’s adrenal glands were being strained by the Epstein-Barr virus, which her pregnancy had triggered and which was now inflaming her thyroid.

The endocrinologist told Michelle to take it easy and avoid stress. On his recommendation, Michelle handed off the freelance consulting projects she’d been working on from home.

In reality, Michelle’s job had nothing to do with her condition. Her source of stress wasn’t her work, but the illness that was eating away at her life…and her seeming helplessness to understand it or do anything about it.

Michelle continued to get worse. Her knees flared up and swelled, making it difficult to walk. She bought knee supports…and decided to pursue help more aggressively. Michelle’s intuition told her an invader was present in her body, so she went to see an infectious disease specialist. This would be precisely the right thing to do—if infectious disease doctors actually knew how to recognize and treat past infections of EBV.

Unfortunately, they don’t. So after running an exhausting battery of tests and noticing that Michelle had an antibody from a past EBV infection, he dismissed it as a problem right away. This doctor told her she was physically fit. He added that she might be depressed, and offered to refer her to a psychiatrist.

Infuriated at being made to feel she was crazy for trying to address what she deeply sensed was a real physical problem, Michelle (painfully) rose and strode out of the room.

With increasing desperation, Michelle now visited doctors across the spectrum. They put her through ultrasounds, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and loads of blood tests. She was told she had Candida, fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, Lyme disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. None of it was right. She was put on immunosuppressant drugs, antibiotics, and loads of different supplements. None of the treatments helped.

Michelle became an insomniac, suffered heart palpitations, and developed chronic vertigo that caused dizziness and nausea. She dropped from 140 to 115 pounds.

Soon, Michelle was spending most of her days in bed. She was wasting away. Her husband, Matthew, was terrified.

After Michelle had spent four years exploring all other options, and based on the recommendation of the naturopath Michelle visited, Matthew called my office as a last resort. When my assistant answered, Matthew burst into tears. “What’s wrong?” she asked.

He replied, “My wife is dying.”

For our first appointment Matthew planned to do most of the talking while sitting next to Michelle, who was in bed. Less than a minute after Matthew started telling me Michelle’s story, I interrupted him. “It’s okay,” I said. “Spirit tells me it’s an aggressive form of the Epstein-Barr virus.”

The virus’s neurotoxin was inflaming all of Michelle’s joints. Her insomnia and foot pain were the result of her phrenic nerves being perpetually inflamed. Her vertigo stemmed from EBV’s neurotoxin inflaming her vagus nerve. And her heart palpitations were being caused by buildup of EBV virus corpses and viral byproduct in her mitral valve.

“Don’t worry,” I told Michelle and Matthew. “I know how to beat this virus.”

Michelle exclaimed, with as much joyful energy as she could muster, “I knew it was a virus!”

It was the first critical step in her recovery.

I recommended a blend of celery juice and papaya, which is great for boosting someone in Michelle’s condition (e.g., low weight, not being able to eat, high number of virus cells). I followed that up with the recommendations for healing in this chapter, including a list of helpful supplements, as well as the recommendations from Part IV, “How to Finally Heal.”

The cleanse diet immediately stopped feeding Michelle’s EBV. Within a week, there was a noticeable reduction of the swelling in her knees. The L-lysine shut down Michelle’s vertigo. And the other supplements started killing virus cells and/or dampening the production of new ones.

In three months, Michelle was regularly up and walking again. In nine months, she was once again working part-time at her challenging corporate job.

And in 18 months, Michelle’s pain and suffering were just a memory—she’d taken control over EBV. Today, Michelle has fully recovered her health. She’s returned to juggling her job and her family energetically and happily.

An End to CFS Confinement

Cynthia was a mother of two. Shortly after her youngest, Sophie, was born, Cynthia began experiencing fatigue. It took everything she had to push through the day, and she relied on increasing her coffee intake just to function. Within a few years, she had to quit her part-time job at a clothing store because long naps were taking up her afternoons. She needed the rest so she could be strong enough to meet her kids at the school bus, make dinner, and help them with their homework.

Cynthia noticed herself becoming irritable, and arguments arose often with her husband, Mark, who didn’t understand why she was tired all the time. After all, the tests that Cynthia’s doctor had run indicated nothing was wrong. The doctor said she was healthy and concluded that maybe she was just unhappy or depressed.

This made Cynthia want to walk out of the doctor’s office without another word. Any blue mood she experienced was because she was tired all the time and could barely function—not the other way around. Yet her husband sided with the doctor and became increasingly resentful toward her.

The ongoing stress put Cynthia on overload; life felt impossible to keep up with. She couldn’t find the energy to brush her hair, and the mere thought of running the vacuum cleaner or washing the dishes exhausted her. From the outside, it looked like she was giving up on life. Mark got angrier—he was talking separation now. “I work too long and hard at the office all day to worry about taking care of things at home,” he said. “This is supposed to be your department.”

Cynthia felt more pressure than ever to get better, but the worries about her marriage and what would happen to her children put her fatigue at an all-time high. She could barely drive to the grocery store or make dinner for her family. All she could do was lie in bed or on the couch.

This is what a moderate-to-severe case of undiagnosed chronic fatigue syndrome can look like. When Cynthia called me, her life had fallen apart. Her husband had left her, and her daughter, Sophie, now seven years old, and her son, Ryan, age nine, had lost their family unit. What her doctor had misconstrued as a psychiatric condition was an actual physical problem: Epstein-Barr virus. The same story applies to far too many women.

I set to work informing Cynthia that she had a case of EBV that her doctor had missed. With an emphasis on getting her viral load under control and addressing nutritional deficiencies, I laid out the background on CFS that I described earlier in this chapter, and I explained the protocols outlined here and in Part IV. Like her life depended on it—because it did—Cynthia followed Spirit’s advice.

Slowly, Cynthia began to get better. Her adrenals recovered normal function, and her stamina returned. Once again, she could tend to her children, run errands, keep the house in shape, and do her hair—all without the gallons of coffee she used to rely on. Cynthia finally had the energy to return to work, too.

After witnessing this change in his wife, Mark called Cynthia and asked her out to dinner—his mother would look after the kids, he said. When they arrived at the fancy restaurant, which had long ago been the deli where they had flirted as college students, Mark told Cynthia he’d called ahead and ordered a special healing-food meal for her—and that he’d ordered the same for himself, out of solidarity. Over sundried-tomato hummus and vegetable nori rolls, Mark didn’t exactly cry (some things would always stay the same), but he did have to dab at his eyes as he apologized for how he’d behaved.

Cynthia was quiet, then answered with a playful smile: “You can make it up to me.”

After a few weeks of testing the waters—Cynthia wanted to make sure Mark didn’t just want her back as a security blanket and housekeeper—they moved back in together as a family. Mark now wakes up early every Saturday morning so he can get to the farmers’ market before they run out of salad greens.

Fibro Pain Forgotten

Stacy, a 41-year-old part-time receptionist in a doctors’ office, had been married to Rob, who worked at a car dealership, for over 15 years. She never had the energy to keep up with the outings Rob planned with their daughters. In fact, she couldn’t remember ever feeling that well. She always felt slightly achy and more tired than her friends seemed to be. And since she’d given birth to her second child, who was now 11, the fatigue and muscle soreness had been more pronounced.

One weekend while Rob and the kids were at a museum, she went for a longer walk than usual—she’d decided to push herself to lose some unwanted weight she’d gained in the last few years. Afterward, she noticed an unusual pain in her left knee. Thinking back to her college basketball coach’s advice to “walk it off,” she tried to ignore it.

It didn’t go away. Two weeks later, she scheduled time for an exam with a doctor at her office. Stacy limped out of the appointment with a prescription for an MRI—which revealed nothing visibly wrong with her knee.

Because Stacy’s balance was off from leaning on her “good” leg, she found herself tripping easily—stairs, curbs, and corners of rugs had become major obstacles. Then her right knee started to hurt even though it hadn’t gotten injured in any of her falls, and exams showed nothing amiss. Stacy’s worry escalated to fear—something was really wrong. The doctors in her office ruled out rheumatoid arthritis, though, and guessed that the extra 30 pounds Stacy was carrying were to blame for her pain.

Soon Stacy started to hurt in other places. Now she couldn’t raise her hands over her head without her arms and neck hurting. She was unable to work anymore, and depression set in as she started to spend hours at home on the sofa. At night, Rob would make dinner for the family and send their daughter to serve Stacy her plate of food on the couch.

A specialist concluded that Stacy had fibromyalgia. When Stacy asked what caused it, the doctor responded, “We don’t know. It’s what we think is oversensitive nerves. This should help, though.” She handed Stacy a prescription for a medicine popular for treating depression and fibromyalgia pain. At her next visit to the specialist, when Stacy reported no progress, the doctor referred her to me.

After I explained what her fibromyalgia really was, that the real cause was the Epstein-Barr virus and that it had been in her system since childhood, Stacy recalled having a bout of mononucleosis at age 14. She finally felt she had a real answer. She understood now that poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, and increased stress had triggered the formerly dormant EBV to surface as fibromyalgia. Not knowing what was wrong with her—the powerlessness—had been scarier than knowing the true cause; the mystery of her mystery illness had been the hardest part. Now she had direction and felt confident in her ability to heal.

Within six months of our first call, following the same suggestions I describe in this chapter and Part IV, “How to Finally Heal,” she was free from fibromyalgia, back to work, and living life again. She told me she felt happier and healthier than ever, and that she’d planned the next family outing—apple picking at an organic orchard.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

The first step of the healing process is to know the cause of your suffering is Epstein-Barr—and to realize it’s not your fault.

Your EBV-related health problems aren’t the result of anything you did wrong or any moral failing. You didn’t make this happen, and you’re in no way to blame. You did not manifest this; you did not attract this. You’re a vibrant, wonderful human being and you have every God-given right to heal. You deserve to heal.

Much of EBV’s effectiveness stems from hiding in the shadows so that neither you nor your body’s immune system can sense its presence. This not only allows it to commit its mayhem unchecked, it leads to negative emotions such as guilt, fear, and helplessness.

Now things are different for you. If you have EBV, you now have a mind-body understanding of what’s causing your health problems. From this alone, your immune system will strengthen and the virus will naturally weaken. So when it comes to fighting EBV, in a very real sense, knowledge is power.

Friday 13th July New Moon – Sirius Isis Alignment – Return of the Goddess and Sacred Union| Recreating Balance

Friday 13th July New Moon – Sirius Isis Alignment – Return of the Goddess and Sacred Union
| Recreating Balance

.
.
The next New Moon will be a very powerful alignment and portal for Goddess and Sacred Union energies. It will happen on Friday the 13th, which is originally a day to celebrate the Goddess (Freya/Venus day), and number 13 has many resonances, 13 Venusian years, 13 mon cycles, etc. The original Light Templars were celebrating that day as they were carrying mystery school heritage passed on by Magdalene, and were guardians of the sacred Temples. So Friday 13th is also related to Templar timeline for the final and complete Return of the Light on Earth.
.
.
On top of that, during this New Moon, both the Sun and Moon and the asteroid Isis will be cunjunct in our sky with the star Sirius, which is Isis and Ashtar’s origin and main anchor. The moon will also be at that time near its closest point to Earth (Supermoon), and there will be a partial solar eclipse.

We suggest to do the Goddess meditations at the time of this New Moon
at 2:47am UTC, Friday 13th July :

We also suggest that you gather together with your local group, create a ceremony, and include Sacred Union between masculine and feminine, male and female, tantric energies,
in any way you feel guided.
