The Epstein-Barr virus, the virus that causes mono, is extremely common with a prevalence of 90% in humans. As with any virus, once you get it you always have it. Despite this, the virus normally "enters latency" and doesn't continue to cause any problems unless it becomes reactivated later in life. When it does get … Continue reading Can optimizing circadian rhythms protect against Epstein-Barr virus reactivation?
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(ME/CFS) is a disorder defined by a cluster of symptoms without a known medical cause. This cluster of symptoms always includes fatigue and exercise intolerance, but may also include digestive abnormalities, sleep problems, and pain. As of 2015, it was believed that between 836,00-2.5 million people suffer from ME/CFS. Unfortunately, there is … Continue reading Chronic fatigue syndrome reversed with circadian optimization
As we grow older it seems as though we begin to fall apart in many ways. We lose muscle mass and bone density, gain fat mass, get poorer sleep, become more forgetful, are less resilient to stress, are more easily injured, and much worse at recovering from injury. Oops, forgot to mention our immune system … Continue reading Preventing the impact of aging on the circadian clocks
