In this special episode, part of our "Mental Health Is Physical Health" series, I sit down with members of my team to discuss everything you need to know about Epstein–Barr virus (EBV). This chronic viral infection can contribute to everything from brain fog, depression, anxiety to autoimmunity, but many people go years without a proper diagnosis. Plus, a vulnerable conversation with one of our patients gives you an inside, personal look on what it really looks like to find vibrant wellness. From lifestyle tips, dietary recommendations, and the best supplements to take, this episode is your go-to guide for overcoming EBV.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • What is EBV, how it can be reactivated in people, and the different ways it can impact a person's health.
  • The steps you can take to heal starting with diagnosis followed by diet, lifestyle changes, and supplements.
  • How to take into account bioindividuality and what works for you on your healing journey.
