In this video, Dr. Huntoon discusses the importance of understanding your symptoms.

Most doctors will lead you to believe symptoms are a normal part of aging. This is not the case and no symptoms are ever normal.

Dr. Huntoon's promise is he will help you get to the source of your Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) and will help you get rid of it once and for all.

Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), also known as human herpesvirus 4, is a member of the herpes virus family. It is one of the most common human viruses. EBV is found all over the world. Most people get infected with EBV at some point in their lives. EBV spreads most commonly through bodily fluids, primarily saliva. EBV can cause infectious mononucleosis, also called mono, and other illnesses.


Symptoms of EBV infection can include

  • fatigue
  • fever
  • inflamed throat
  • swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • enlarged spleen
  • swollen liver
  • rash

Many people become infected with EBV in childhood. EBV infections in children usually do not cause symptoms, or the symptoms are not distinguishable from other mild, brief childhood illnesses.

People who get symptoms from EBV infection, usually teenagers or adults, will feel better in two to four weeks. However, some people may feel fatigued for several weeks or even months.

Know that feeling better and not having sub-clinical EBV infection are one in the same once you have EBV until properly remedied.

After you get an EBV infection, the virus becomes latent (inactive) in your body. In some cases, the virus may reactivate. This does not always cause symptoms, but people with weakened Immune Systems are more likely to develop symptoms if EBV reactivates.

EBV Spreads Easily

EBV is spread by saliva through

  • kissing
  • sharing drinks and food
  • using the same cups, eating utensils, or toothbrushes
  • having contact with toys that children have drooled on


EBV spreads most commonly through bodily fluids, especially saliva.

However, EBV can also spread through blood and semen during sexual contact, blood transfusions, and organ transplantations.

EBV can be spread by using objects, such as a toothbrush or drinking glass, that an infected person recently used. The virus probably survives on an object at least as long as the object remains moist.

The first time you get infected with EBV (primary EBV infection) you can spread the virus for weeks and even before you have symptoms. Once the virus is in your body, it stays there in a latent (inactive) state until properly remedied. If the virus reactivates, you can potentially spread EBV to others no matter how much time has passed since the initial infection.


The Medical Perspective


Diagnosing EBV infection can be challenging since symptoms are similar to other illnesses.  EBV infection can be confirmed with a blood test that detects antibodies.  About nine out of ten of adults have antibodies that show that they have a current or past EBV infection.

There is no specific treatment from the medical perspective.  It is something you will learn to live with.

However, some things can be done to help relieve symptoms, including

  • drinking fluids to stay hydrated
  • getting plenty of rest
  • taking over-the-counter medications for pain and fever

Medicines Two Choices for You

.The Alternative Perspective

Alternative Treatments and Hope

Many Holistic practitioners have had success helping people with Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). Finding a Holistic Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, Homeopath or Naturopath and reviewing your condition will be the first step to developing a plan to get to the underlying cause of your EBV. Working with a practitioner who has experience with EBV is vital.  Nutritional supplementation, homeopathic preparations and herbal remedies may be warranted to restore balance to the areas being affected by the condition.

Expectations (prognosis)

When working with an Alternative Treatment, be sure to understand if the Reservior's will be addressed.  Otherwise, the treatment will be a complete waste of time. Dr. Huntoon understands this and is why he always uses a Unique 3 Step approach to addressing EBV fully and completely. 

By working closely with a Holistic Chiropractor who can help you develop a well-rounded, multifaceted approach to addressing the causes of your EBV and Immune System concerns is warranted.  Using specific techniques will help address the underlying cause and help you resolve your Epstein-Barr fully.

Prevention & Treatment

There is no vaccine to protect against EBV infection. You can help protect yourself by not kissing or sharing drinks, food, or personal items, like toothbrushes, with people who have EBV infection.

There is no specific treatment for EBV from the Traditional Allopathic perspective. However, some things can be done to help relieve symptoms, including

  • drinking fluids to stay hydrated
  • getting plenty of rest
  • taking over-the-counter medications for pain and fever
