Health Problems Associated with the Epstein Barr Virus and a Homeopathic Approach by Pam Nori

Posted by Pam Nori on November 12, 2018 at 1:45 PM

The Epstein Barr virus belongs to the Herpes family of viruses. Epstein Barr is responsible for Mononucleosis.  When a person has Mono, he or she experiences a sore throat, extreme fatigue, swollen lymph glands, and muscle aches.  The symptoms can last for several months.  Children can also contact the Epstein Barr virus, and the symptoms present themselves as a cold, flu, ear infection and or diarrhea.  Once the virus is in the body, it remains in the body.  It can lie dormant, or it can be the underlying cause of other health problems or diseases.

Viruses are different from bacteria.  Viruses get into a host's cells, take over and replicate.  Once a virus starts to multiply, it is difficult to distinguish a healthy cell from an infected one.  This makes viruses difficult to kill. Antibiotics do not eliminate viruses.  Some viruses are self- limiting and short-lived like a cold or flu.  Others that belong to the Herpes family of viruses can enter the body and stay indefinitely. The Herpes family of viruses consists of Herpes Simplex #1 (cold sores), Herpes Simplex #2 (genital herpes), Herpes Simplex #6,7,8, Herpes Zoster (shingles), Cytomegalo, Epstein Barr and others.

Scientific research has found strong  links between the Epstein Barr virus and the following diseases:  Chronic Fatique, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Schlerosis(MS), Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto's, Juvenile Arthritis, Inflamatory Bowel Disease (IBS), Celiac disease, Type 1 Diabetes, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and certain cancers of the lymphatic system.  The Epstein Barr virus has many strains.  I would not be surprised if more scientific studies link Epstein Barr with other health problems and diseases.

In Homeopathy, we have access to Homeopathic Nosodes.  Nosodes are derived from pathogens and contain only their essence due to the way they are produced.  They do not contain live pathogens.  The principle of Homeopathy is "like cures like."  

The Epstein Barr remedy has been a wonderful remedy.  I have used it in my practice to treat Mono, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Vertigo, Rashes, Pelvic inflamation, Anxiety, and lower back pain with success.  When people suffer from Epstein Barr related illnesses, they should consider Homeopathic treatment.     


Homeopathic Remedies for Ebola by Pam Nori

Posted by Pam Nori on October 18, 2014 at 7:25 PM

It is important that we consider Homeopathic remedies in the fight against the Ebola virus. Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever virus. Viruses replicate themselves inside living cells of an organism making it very difficult for prescription drugs to destroy them.

Antibiotics have no effect on viruses. Antiviral drugs do not destroy the pathogen but instead inhibit their progress and development. With the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, there is an urgent push to have antiviral drugs for Ebola made available as soon as possible. There are labs which have been developing antiviral drugs for Ebola, but it may be several years before clinical trials can determine their efficacy and safety. ZMapp and TKM-Ebola are two antiviral drugs for Ebola which are being tested on monkeys. Both drugs show promise in the fight against the virus.

There are two Homeopathic remedies which have descriptions which closely resemble the symptoms of the Ebola disease. Crotalus Horridus and Bothrops are remedies which address hemorrhagic fevers.

Both remedies address fever, hemorrhages from orfices of the body, nausea, vomiting, extreme sore throat causing difficulty swallowing, unbearable headaches, uncontrollable diarrhea, severe muscle and bone pains, confusion and exhaustion. These symptoms are also the symptoms experienced by a person suffering from the Ebola virus. In Homeopathy the premise is "like cures like." Both Crotalus Horridus and Bothrops descriptions closely resemble the symptoms of the Ebola disease. This makes the remedies good candidates to actively address the Ebola virus in a person suffering from the virus.

See Pam's Hubpage article on Ebola for a more indepth description of Homeopathic remedies and Ebola.

Pesticides and Homeopathy by Pam Nori

Posted by Pam Nori on May 3, 2014 at 10:25 PM

This article explores how Homeopathic remedies can help with the toxic effects created by pesticides in our foods once they have been ingested. One of the latest reports on pesticides in our foods came from the Environmental Working Group, a U.S. research and advocacy organization. See

They found that the lowest level of pesticides were found in avocado, corn and pineapple. The potatoe had more pesticides by weight than any other fruit or vegetable. One grape contained 15 pesticides. The imported nectarines and apples tested had at least one pesticide. Celery, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas and strawberies tested for 13 different pesticides. Kale and collard greens were found to have insecticides that are toxic to our nervous systems. Pesticides are know to cause health problems such as birth defects, neurological problems, leukemia, cancer and other diseases. Organic foods would be a better choice however, the organic foods are expensive. The french fries at fast food outlets not only have alot of sodium and are fried, they now have a bad rap of possibly containing 13 or more pesticides because of the pesticides they found in potatoes.

Homeopathic remedies were developed over 200 years ago and most pesticides were developed after the 1950s and their use has increased 50 fold. So the connection between the pesticides and certain remedies that could be useful for them was not made in the homeopathic materia medicas. There are remedies which are commonly used for heavy metal toxicity such as mercurius for mercury poisoning, argentum nitricum for silver toxicity, alumina for aluminum toxicity, arsenicum album for arsenic toxicity, plumbum metallicum for lead poisoning and tabacum and cadmium sulfuratum for cirgarette smoking. In 2013, the FDA found inorganic arsenic in the rice that was grown in the old cotton fields in the southern U.S. Arsenic was used as a pesticide in the cotton fields and the soil was contaminated. See . (The photo at the top of this page is of Oryza sativa-rice.)

There are no Homeopathic remedies that are known to specifically chelate pesticides such as chlorinated cyclodiene, carbamate, and organochlorine pesticides (DDT) from the body. However, there are remedies that can help detox the body by supporting the liver and immune system to rid the body of these toxins. Some of the pesticides can create symptoms of dizzyness, nausea, severe headaches, tremors, loss of memory and over the long term health problems which were mentioned above. Certain homeopathic remedies can help chelate pesticides from the body and these would be chosen based on the symptoms that have developed in the individual rather than on the type of pesticide an individual has been exposed to.
