This Emperor Wears Many Clothes

There is a complexity that only presents in the Epstein-Barr Virus, and that is its ability to cause multiple chronic diseases, including autoimmune disorders as well as a long list of various types of cancer. Research is quite clear on many medical conditions as causative factors, while there are also hypotheses or associations with other conditions, with more studies needed. 

Based on research available to date, I have compiled a list for your reference. It is not all inclusive. The more EBV I study and work with, the more I feel that this list will continue to expand as more research is done.

Research-Supported Medical Conditions Caused by or Associated with CAEBV (each reference is clickable)

I have worked with quite a few of these conditions, and it still surprises me how the vast EBV umbrella can be the missing link between various seemingly unrelated medical conditions that afflict people. This invisible umbrella otherwise confuses the clinicians, who focus on each individual disease, and causes anxiety, fear, confusion and disempowerment in people afflicted with it.

Take a look at this list and think through your time line. If you are a clinician, revisit the timelines of your clients and patients who have had these conditions and fail to respond to therapies because the underlying EBV, if not addressed, will cause the condition(s) to perpetuate.

Autoimmune Disorders


Brain Inflammatory


  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease, both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease – see above in autoimmune section

  • Dyspepsia, duodenal ulcer, or GERD, especially with co-infections like H. pylori (Buzas & Konderak, 2016)

  • Celiac – see above under autoimmune
