A Natural Remedy for Epstein Barr Virus That Works!

by Vincent


I have had chronic Epstein Barr flare-ups for over 2 years. What can I do naturally to help ease this?

Thank You.


Hi Vincent, and thank you for your question regarding natural ways to ease your Epstein Barr virus (EBV) symptoms.

Firstly, for those who don't know. Epstein Barr is part of the herpes virus family. The virus is carried in the salivary glands and is spread by kissing (hence its common nickname "the kissing disease") or by sharing drinks and utensils. It causes chronic fatigue and has also been associated with lymphoma and multiple sclerosis.

There are 3 primary natural treatments and remedies for the Epstein Barr virus that work very powerfully... olive leaf extract, colloidal silver and oregano oil.

All three of these surround the virus and create a type of "force field" so it is unable to continue to feed, grow and replicate. This in turn "starves" the virus and kills it (yes it can be killed). We recommend you have a read of our "natural herpes cure" article, which explains all three remedies in detail, along with the best places to obtain these supplements from for maximum potency. Here's the link... Potent Natural Cure for Herpes.

Essiac tea has also been found to be a very effective remedy and treatment for the Epstein Barr virus. Certain components in essiac tea are able to kill viruses and cancer cells in the blood stream. Its use on AIDS patients is also being considered. You can buy it in tincture, capsule or liquid form. All of these work well. For dosages and recommendations, follow the directions on the back of the container. Here's some good brands if you're interested... Essiac Tea.

BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene) is another very potent viral killer that you may want to consider. This substance is regularly used as a food preservative but its real power lies in its ability to destroy lipid coated viruses, which is what the herpes family of viruses, including Epstein Barr, is. You can easily buy it in supplemental form (this is one of the best brands on the market) and will need to start off slowly with the dosage and increase over a period of about a week so your body can get used to it. Begin with 250 mg's per day for the first two days then increase to 500 mg's on the third day (for another two days), then 750 mg's for two days then up to 1000 mg's. If no adverse reactions are felt, stay on the 1000 mg dose for a period of 12 months. BHT must also be taken with fats so have a tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil at the same time, along with the herb St. Johns Wort, which also enhances the absorption of BHT.

You can read more about the potent effects of BHT here if you're interested... BHT and the Silent Epidemic... Herpes.

Finally, there are a few more things you should be doing to help your immune system and body to build-up and repair itself...

1) Cut out all sweets and refined sugars. Sugar lowers your immune system.

2) Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

3) Limit caffeine, switch from coffee to healthy Matcha green tea.

4) No alcohol.

5) Take L-lysine (see our natural herpes cure article for more information on this).

6) Take 2 tablespoons of coconut oil every day (coconut oil is a strong anti-viral food).

7) Consume organic apple cider vinegar containing the "mother" apple (ACV is also a very powerful anti-viral food).

8) Get enough rest.

So hopefully these tips and remedies help you out Vincent.

Good luck to you and all the best!

Thanks for your response. I am having a difficult time keeping this thing in check and already do some of the things you recommend. Doctor's don't seem to understand how debilitating this virus can be.

Unfortunately, they don't Vincent. Just remember, using multiple remedies and taking a holistic approach is the best way to successfully treat this nasty problem. Best of luck.

Heart Palpitations
by: Christine

I'm hoping that combining these natural remedies will bring my husband some relief, and sleep. He was diagnosed in Oct 2014 with EBV. He has been suffering from heart palpitations since and gets very little sleep, which is bad if you have this virus. He has worn a halter monitor and been to a cardiologist. Apparently all is fine. He's on lots of different vitamins and supplements, but this one symptom is still present. I fear for what the future health ramifications will be should he not get enough rest and put this virus to bed, for good.

Sep 30, 2016

Hi Christine. A magnesium deficiency is the #1 cause of an irregular heart beat (heart palpitations) and insomnia. But what's most important is that you MUST supplement with the right type of magnesium. Magnesium has now been almost completely leached from our food soils so supplementation is crucial.

A transdermal magnesium oil spray is the best option. The magnesium is absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the skin... Magnesium Oil Spray.

Magnesium Citrate is the next best option... Natural Calm Magnesium Citrate.

You should take the time to have a read of this article by Magnesium expert, Dr Marcus Sircus, for more information on this... Magnesium – the Ultimate Heart Medicine.

Hope this helps you and your husband Christine.

All the best to you.

I have developed High Blood pressure with the EBV. I don't get any sleep either due to continuous hypnotic jerks that have developed. I don't get much rest and am fatigued a lot. So my prayers are with your husband. This virus sucks

Attacking the Virus With Your Recomendations
by: Camilla


My Partner and I both have the EB virus.
Do you recommend the Colloidal Silver, Oregano Oil and Olive Leaf Extract for this or is it not strong enough as EBV is a different strain of the herpes virus (I know there are over 50 different types)??

Also, I am able to get the Silver in Australia but not the other products? Can you please recommend similar products that I am able to get in Australia?

I have found this one.. www.oregano-oil.com.au

And this one... www.fountainofbeing.com.au/oil-of-oregano

For the oregano oil.. I imagine the first is the best because it costs the most!

Thanks :)

Vincent ... Lyme Disease???
by: Megan

Vincent, it sounds like maybe you have Lyme disease? I was getting those hypnotic jerks too. Many people with Lyme disease have active EBV, HH6, etc.
Lyme disease is an ugly illness.
Join some FB Lyme disease groups to learn more about this disorder. Oh and I haven't slept in years either. Four to be exact.

Oct 03, 2016
by: Vincent

I have been tested 3 times over the last 2 years for Lyme and it always comes back negative. I know the tests could be wrong and the symptoms do seem to coincide, but what do you do for Lyme's that you don't do with EBV treatment?

Hi Camilla. Firstly, the OLE, colloidal silver and oregano oil (along with the BHT) are DEFINITELY powerful enough to destroy the EB virus. It makes little difference what strain of the herpes virus it is, these four supplements will bring the virus out of hiding and destroy it. Just make sure you use all of them exactly as we've directed in our article.... Natural Herpes Cure. You may go through a bit of a rough patch to begin with (detoxing and Herxheimers reaction) but once you get over this you will begin to feel better than you've felt in a very long time. Now, with the oregano oil suppliers you've listed, the first one is the definite choice. Their "super strength" oregano oil looks extremely good and authentic. The OLE you can still get from Olivus. They deliver to Australia. Just remember to include the BHT in your protocol (you'll need to purchase BHT from a U.S. supplier such as Amazon or Life Extension) and follow a strict "clean eating" regimen with lots of raw organic foods so you get the most out of these supplements.

Good luck and all the best to you Camilla!

Olive Leaf Extract
by: Camilla


Thank you so much for your response.

Could you please advise me in regards to the following so I can complete my purchases? Would be greatly appreciated..

I tried to order from Olivus but the shipping box would not let me enter my address and kept reverting me back to America. So I found this one. What do you think?.. http://www.herbosophy.com.au/olive-leaf-x40-40-oleuropein/ It's got 40% oleuropein..

I cannot find BHT on the Life Extension Website, the only one I can find is...
(With any ST JOHNS WORT?)

Is this OK?

Thanks so much


Oct 09, 2016
by: Troy

Hi Camilla. This page explains the shipping details for the Olivus OLE... Shipping and Returns, however, the olive leaf extract brand you've found is perfectly okay as well. Just start off with one capsule a day for the first 1-2 weeks then increase to two per day.

The Life Enhancement BHT is also perfect. Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw were actually the first people to discover the awesome power of BHT for destroying viral infections and even wrote a best-selling book on the subject.

Any type of St John's Wort is okay as long as it contains at least 0.3% standardized hypericin extract (it should tell you on the bottle).

Hope this helps you Camilla.

All the best!

Essiac tea for high viral load?
by: Michelle

Hello, My boyfriend has been diagnosed with the rare form of EBV... chronic active EBV with T-cell lymphoproliferation. His situation is different because he doesn't feel sick. His viral titer's are in the millions. Will Essaic tea help lower his viral count? Thanks.

Feb 15, 2017
by: Troy

Essiac tea is excellent for reducing the viral load of any infection, including all forms of EBV. But to get the most out of it and to destroy the infection completely, he should combine it with the OLE, colloidal silver, oregano oil and BHT. This combination is incredibly powerful and works a treat.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you. :)

Candida, parasites, bacteria
by: Mona

Thank you so much for sharing this information. Will this remedy be effective in removing candida, parasites or other bacteria as well? Some of the autoimmune diseases, or maybe all of them, seem to have the same things in common like environmental toxicity, viruses, candida, parasites and bacteria. If not, do you have another protocol for removing these? I am interested in a natural protocol for lupus as well. Thank you again.

Mar 23, 2017
by: Troy

Hi Mona. The olive leaf extract, oregano oil & colloidal silver will most definitely get rid of candida, bacteria & any other parasites that may be residing in your body.

Other OLE Reputable Brands?
by: Hayley

Hi Troy,

Thank you very much for the valuable info.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 years ago at the age of 22 and have recently been diagnosed with pcos and insulin resistance. I'm convinced they are all connected and most recently have concluded the underlying culprit is Epstein Barr after digging for relief for years.
Since Olivus is usually out of stock, are there any other reputable brands that you recommend? It seems like the supplement industry is full of knock offs and sometimes it's hard to distinguish what is genuine quality.

Apr 10, 2017
by: Troy

Hi Hayley. Unfortunately, the supplement industry isn't as tightly regulated as what it should be, so yes, you do need to be careful of your supplier. Olivus will be back in stock in 2 days according to their website. If you cannot wait then the Healths Harmony brand is another good quality OLE... Olive Leaf Extract (NON-GMO) Super Strength.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best to you!

May 06, 2017
Thank you
by: Stacey

I just ordered all the items you listed. I have battled chronic EBV for 3 years now. It just gets worse, so I am willing to try anything. Is there any side effects from using OLE or oregano oil? Is it safe to use all of the listed herbs/supplements long term?
Thank you for helping and commenting. Tons of doctor visits and I have gotten nowhere...
Thank you

May 07, 2017
by: Troy

Hi Stacey. All of these foods and supplements can be safely taken long term at their recommended "maintenance" dosages (listed on the side of the container), with the exception of the oregano oil, L-lysine and colloidal silver. It's recommended that these three are taken for 6-12 months before having a rest. After a 4-6 month period you could then go back on them again. The maintenance dose for the BHT is 250 mg's per day, which you can safely continue to take for as long as you like (the rest of your life in fact).

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best!

Chronic Ebv
by: Kim

Hi. Does this work for chronic ebv. I have had a multitude of symptoms and tested positive for ebv back in October. I was sick from July and now experiencing what seems like neurological symptoms, twitching, muscle tightness, foot burning. I think I have got on top of the fatigue with a very clean diet and supplements but I'm still getting different symptoms and insomnia and I have lost too much weight.
Thanks Kim.

May 17, 2017
by: Troy (Admin)

This protocol definitely works for chronic EBV Kim. Clean eating is certainly a good start, but you must kill the virus to be truly cured and free from this awful parasite for good. That's what the olive leaf extract, oregano oil and colloidal silver do. The BHT and essiac tea also play an important role in containing and starving the virus so it cannot continue to grow and replicate. Follow the recommendations listed above and you'll be truly amazed by the results and how much better you feel.

Good luck and all the best to you! :)

Good bacteria damage with olive leaf & oregano oil?
by: Anonymous

Thanks for all your good information. I've heard that it may be a problem taking oregano oil and leaf extract for more than a few days in a row because it wipes out your own good intestinal flora, as well as the viruses you're fighting. Is this true? And if it is, what type of probiotic do you recommend and how much?

Jul 10, 2017
by: Troy

Taking OLE and oregano oil will not "wipe out" your good gut bacteria, however, they can certainly lower the supply. So taking a good quality probiotic supplement is a good idea. Dr Tobias makes the best probiotic supplement in my opinion (follow the directions on the bottle for daily amounts). Also try and culture and ferment your own probiotic rich foods (sauerkraut, kefir, etc) for an extra supply. This handy website shows you how... Cultures for Health.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

10 year old daughter has mono/EBV
by: Becky

Hi! I'm curious if my daughter can take the colloidal silver, olive leaf extract, and Oregano oil? If so is this all taken orally and what dosage? Thank you! She has been very sick for 2 weeks.

EBV issues since 2009
by: Lisa

Thank you for this information! I have suffered with this illness since 2009. No doctor could ever find out what was wrong with me. After 8 years and more blood work at a new clinic, they said the only thing they could find was EBV. They said it should not be causing my problems. I beg to differ. I had all the symptoms of Mono, off and on for years. This virus is horrific and has kept me from a good quality of life! I have purchased the 3 products that you said would kill the virus. Should I get the other 2 items as well? I can't wait to be well and start living again.

Thank you!


Aug 11, 2017
Reply to Becky
by: Troy

Yes, children can take all three orally, at a lower dosage than adults of course. Start off with 1/4 of an adult dose to begin with for the first week or two. If this is okay then you can increase up to half the adult amount. The oregano oil must be the food grade oil and not the external grade. Because of the taste, the hardest part may be getting your daughter to take these.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Becky! :)

by: Troy

Hi Lisa. Yes it's definitely worth getting the BHT, St John's Wort and Essiac tea. You want to give yourself the best chance possible of beating this virus - and these foods and supplements will help tremendously to do this as well. Don't forget to eat healthy too!

All the best to you!

by: Irene S

Thank you for the combo cures listed. I got reactivated in June after an upper respiratory infection with high readings - in current and past EBV with all three levels actually. After checking the internet I found a formula for vitamin D3, mega C, elderberry, B12 and echinacea. After one month I re-tested and my levels went down a third, but are still high. I found your cure and will try it but am concerned about the probiotics...
When do I take the raw probiotic to counter the olive leaf extract? Is it ok with it or after? I feel for everyone who has this because it's zapping the life out of me.

Aug 16, 2017
Reply to Irene
by: Troy

Hi Irene. There is no reason whatsoever to be concerned about taking/consuming probiotics. These microscopic creatures are actually essential to our survival! You can never overdose on these beneficial bacteria either (in fact, the more you consume the better), nor do you need to take/have them at a specific time. So you can take your probiotic supplement at any time, along with eating probiotic rich foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi, natural yogurt, etc.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

I have ebv and have one bad patch of psoriasis, with two more happening. I'm sure they are correlated. I don't want the psoriasis getting worse. Ideally I'd like them to go and healing from ebv will help that to happen. Are the supplements you recommend safe for nursing? I'm nursing an 11 month old and won't be finished for another two years. Please advise if these supplements are safe for nursing or if I will need to wait until he's weaned.

Even though these supplements are safe, it would be wise to wait in your case. Your body will be detoxing, which can cause a phenomena called herxheimer's reaction (detoxing effect). This could affect the taste/quality of your breast milk. :)

I am allergic I think to olive leaf and have been taking Red-Gen (red marine algae) instead, combined with lysine. Have you heard of this? I have EBV, HH6 and coxsackie viruses. I recently had a horrible cold/cough and it seems to have badly flared things up. I'm trying to pick a few of the products u suggested to bring my levels back down. Are the a few of them you would recommend to start right away? I don't think I can afford them all at once. 😩 I also get hydrogen peroxide and vitamin C Iv's once in a while. are these helpful? Thank you for all this information! So good.

Aug 27, 2017
by: Troy

If you're allergic to the OLE then at least take the colloidal silver and oregano oil if you can. The BHT is also a potent antioxidant that will help to build up your immunity, along with the essiac tea. Even something as simple and as cheap as the organic apple cider vinegar will work wonders. Building up your immune system is crucial, especially if you've been knocked down with a cold or flue virus. The red marine algae is terrific and definitely worth keeping in your diet/supplement regimen. The IV's are also a good idea too.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

This will kill EBV? Has anyone had success with this protocol? I am hoping the answer is yes. Please let me know. Thank you!!

How long to notice it's working?
by: Dan Panzarella

Hi there, I am excited about the possibility of ridding my body of EBV. Every time I exercise, I get swollen glands and really tired, foggy head. This has being going on since grad school and only let up when I lived in another country and had a lot less stress. How long do these natural treatments take to work?

Nov 02, 2017
Reply to Dan
by: Troy

Hi Dan. You'll start seeing improvement within the first 4-6 weeks, however, it will take a full 6 months or more to fully cure yourself and be recovered 100%. Be aware also that you can suffer from a detoxing or "die off" effect (also known as herxheimers reaction) for the first few weeks, so you should be prepared for this. You can read more about herxheimers reaction here... Die Off Effect and What to Expect.

Hope this helps.

All the best!
