Another study showing a possible link between Multiple Sclerosis and a previous virus infection. This time it is Epstein-Barr virus.
In Chinese Medicine, external invasion or a virus or bacteria can be treated with a broad set of tools and these are often implicated in later disease. This linkage between a virus and a serious illness is a good reason to practice preventative medicine. If you have a cold, or some other illness, please get some treatments until it is resolved. Herbs and Acupuncture work well for this kind of thing. If it lasts forever, that is certainly punishment enough for us; no one wants to get an autoimmune condition too.
