Antihistamine Drugs Can Cause Chronic Fatigue; CBCD Reviews the Medical Evidence

Industry: Health & Fitness

Allergy drugs weaken the immune system and cause chronic fatigue. The CBCD explains the link between antihistamines, latent viruses, and fatigue.

“Infected with the EBV virus? The CBCD recommends taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

A common side effect of drugs to control allergies is a feeling of physical and mental fatigue; according to Dr. Armon B. Neel, Jr. (1) These drugs are called antihistamines. Dr. Neel says they “are used to relieve or prevent the symptoms of allergic disorders (such as hay fever) or the common cold. Some antihistamines are also used to prevent motion sickness, nausea, vomiting and dizziness, and to treat anxiety or insomnia.” (1) Most drugs against allergies “list tiredness and drowsiness among the potential side effects; some list dizziness and weakness.” Dr. Neel is a board-certified pharmacist who writes for the AARP.

Anti-allergy drugs can also weaken the immune system. “Histamine increases the permeability of the capillaries to white blood cells and other proteins, in order to allow them to engage foreign invaders in the affected tissues.” (2) Therefore, antihistamines reduce the ability of the white blood cells to enter the blood vessels and fight foreign invaders. This weakening of the immune system can allow latent viral infections with viruses, such as EBV, CMV, HCV, etc., to increase in number and cause a feeling of physical and mental fatigue.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals infected with a latent virus take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with EBV or CMV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (3) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

Which antihistamines can cause fatigue?

There are many. (1) Individuals can check if their anti-allergy drugs cause fatigue by inserting the name of the drug in the search bar located here:

What is the link between a weak immune system and fatigue?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory of Microcompetition, the decrease in the immune system will increase the number of latent viruses in these patients. One typical virus that infects most people is the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). Research shows that in high concentrations, these viruses cause fatigue. Therefore, polyDNA suggests reducing the numbers of latent viruses in the body to reduce physical and mental fatigue. Individuals can read more about Dr. Polansky’s theory here:

Suppressing the immune system can also lead to a reactivation of latent viruses in the body. This further weakening of the immune system can allow an infection with a latent virus, such as with EBV, to create conditions favorable to viral reactivation and even more intense feelings of fatigue. In fact, the virus itself is responsible for feelings of “extreme fatigue.” (4)

The CBCD recommends that individuals who take antihistamines also take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR against the latent viruses in their bodies that can cause fatigue.

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.

polyDNA developed Gene-Eden-VIR, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.
