The world will likely be a much healthier place once we develop and roll out vaccines for all the common viruses. According to the ideas of Prof Paul Ewald, many chronic diseases are likely caused by everyday pathogens in common circulation.

In my case I contracted HHV6 a few months after getting EBV. Both viruses are very similar and block the same molecular targets so they are prime candidates to turn cells into chronically inflammed latent infections, ie. SEIDs. Vaccination would have given immunity to the process. Most people who have EBV alone recover.

I wonder if that was the A variant of HHV-6 you caught? Because almost everyone acquires HHV-6 as an infant, such that nearly 100% of adults are seropositive for HHV-6.

Lab reported HHV6 IGG ABS Quant 5.51, >.99 is pos. So definitely elevated. Didn't differentiate the type.
Five years after stopping GcMAF HHV6 IGG was not detectable.

That could just be a reactivation of latent HHV-6 that you already had in your body since an infant.

Did any ME/CFS specialist diagnose a chronic active HHV-6 infection? You antibody levels do not look that high, only around 6 times higher than the threshold for positive.

Yes after 4 months on GcMAF. No at 5 years.
