Vaccine AEs, Injuries, and Long Covid Caused by Epstein Barr Virus Reactivation
Written 2/22/2023 BTW: I am the only one saying this in regards to vaccine injuries. So, I will be contacting the Nobel board for my prize. And that's both a disclaimer and your warning that these are my opinions.
No, it can't be!
Sometimes the thing right under our nose is the cause of all our problems, and I'm not talking about our big mouths - or maybe I am a little.
So, almost everyone (on Planet Earth) has had Epstein Barr Virus once in their lives. Usually, when they were teens. It goes into a latency (dormancy) and may or may not ever come back again. It's a herpes virus, and for this reason, I believe, people are in denial that it could be the cause of a good chunk of vaccine reactions and probably long covid too. People are too embarrassed to admit they have herpes, that's why we call it Epstein Barr, or something cute, like the "kissing disease." I hate to tell you; it won't change the fact that it's a herpes virus and everyone has it together. Yuck. Chicken Pox and Shingles are also herpes viruses by the way.
That brings me to my next point. It is well known, in the literature anyway, that various vaccines can cause reactivation of shingles viruses (a herpes virus). These are rather obvious, because they come on with a distinctive and painful rash. These kinds of viruses can also cause a neuralgia that is very painful, and hard to ignore. The obvious cannot be denied. So, why then cannot other herpes viruses be reactivated by viruses or vaccines. Well, maybe they can. Maybe, the symptoms of Epstein Barr reactivation, are not so obvious. Perhaps the infection doesn't present the same way it did the first time we caught it as a teen. Kind of like Chicken Pox reactivation as an older adult, presents as Shingles. Not the same.
So what kind of things can cause an Epstein Barr reactivation.
"Events that trigger EBV reactivation include:
Weak immune system.
Menopause or hormone changes."
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) - Symptoms, Causes & Treatment (clevelandclinic.org)
It is well known that stress, weakened immune systems, and illnesses, as well as some vaccines, can trigger Lupus flares. Stress, illness, and hormones are known to trigger MS relapses. Might a vaccine or an illness also trigger an Epstein Barr Virus reactivation, if it is known that such things can trigger other herpes virus reactivations?
Why do I think many vaccine injuries are due to Epstein Barr Reactivation:
Myocarditis and complications involving the nervous system, such as Guillain Barre (a syndrome known (rarely) to result from various vaccines), these symptoms are also associated with Epstein Barr virus. Post EB neuropathy is also well documented.
Mononucleosis - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic
But perhaps the most striking reason is that Chronic Fatigue is a hallmark symptom of Epstein Barr Virus - which is also the hallmark symptom of long covid (which some people experience Chronic Fatigue post vaccination as well). Of note, this symptom is common among those experiencing dysautonomia, such as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), and Orthostatic Hypotension (OH) to name a few. Dysautonomias can be autoimmune in nature.
And that brings me to the Autoimmune argument. As recently as last year, the Army published a study (and there have been others), citing the association between Epstein Barr virus and various autoimmune diseases such as MS, Lupus, and RA. Both MS and Lupus are known to occur less in Southern latitudes where the temperatures are warmer and sunnier. In Lupus, sunlight can cause rashes. Herpes viruses are well known to react to sunlight. Epstein Barr can also react to sunlight, although this is less well known, it is possible. Epstein Barr is a known cause of Multiple Sclerosis, which also occurs less in sunnier climates. Vitamin D has been shown to help prevent both Covid-19 and various auto-immune diseases. I posit, Vitamin D and/or sunlight also diminish the effects of Epstein Barr Viral loads in the system, perhaps prevent reactivation, and therefore prevent long covid and various autoimmune diseases. Nothing's 100 percent here, but you get the drift.
Epstein Barr is known to alter one's genes. There is no treatment or vaccine for it, and since everyone has it sleeping in their systems already, in my opinion, a vaccine is not going to work - just as you can't get vaccinated for Hepatitis if you already have it. It doesn't work that way. Personally, I would like to see more treatment options for Epstein Barr virus (probably antivirals) to treat people with Chronic Fatigue. But changing your genes back once the virus has done its damage, might not be so easy. I would be very wary of new BioNtech genetic treatments aimed at MS, because if Epstein Barr is the cause of MS, what genes, exactly, are they changing - genes altered by Epstein Barr, or genes you need to operate your immune system properly.
