In this episode Dr. Campbell and Dr. Hohn talk with Dr. Kasey Holland. She is a naturopathic doctor who works with patients who suffer from various chronic illnesses. We discuss the Epstein-Barr Virus and all of the complications it can cause. Many people are silently suffering from this illness, and it can be difficult to find a health care provider who addresses EBV from all angles. Dr. Holland tells us about her personal struggles with the virus and how it has influenced the way she works with patients outside of the conventional model. Listen as we dive into the symptomatology, how to properly test for it, and what you can do to best support it.
