“Infected with hepatitis B (HBV)? We recommend Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD
Previous studies have linked herpes viruses to Fibromyalgia (FM). (1) Now, Dr. Mustafa Ozsahin and his team of researchers have shown that the hepatitis B virus (HBV) may also cause the disease. They wrote that “FM prevalence was found to be as high as 25% in a single study of hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers.” (2) Moreover, the reverse is also true. That is, many people who suffer from FM showed an infection with HBV and specifically, a blood test showed that they are carriers of a particular HBV protein called HBsAg. As Dr. Ozsahin wrote, “HBsAg-positive patients had a higher frequency of FM than did either the control group or the general population.” (2) Dr. Ozsahin and colleagues are from the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, at the Medical School of Duzce University in Turkey.
The CBCD recommends that people infected with the hepatitis B virus take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin. 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 the herpes simplex virus, 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 the HBV … 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)
Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin 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, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
Since hepatitis B has been linked to Fibromyalgia, it is important to understand what hepatitis B is. According to the CDC, “Hepatitis B can be either acute or chronic. Acute Hepatitis B virus infection is a short-term illness that occurs within the first 6 months after someone is exposed to the Hepatitis B virus. Acute infection can – but does not always – lead to chronic infection. Chronic Hepatitis B virus infection is a long-term illness that occurs when the Hepatitis B virus remains in a person’s body. Chronic Hepatitis B is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems, and even death.” (4)
The CDC continues, by saying that Fibromyalgia itself is “a condition that causes lasting, and sometimes debilitating muscle pain and fatigue…it may be triggered by injuries, emotional trauma, or viral infections. Fibromyalgia is also known as fibrositis or fibromyositis.” (5)
Additionally, “People with Fibromyalgia may also have other symptoms; such as: morning stiffness, tingling or numbness in hands and feet, headaches, including migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, sleep disturbances, cognitive problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”), painful menstrual periods and other pain syndromes.” (6)
In light of the above information, the CBCD recommends that individuals infected with the hepatitis B virus take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (http://www.cbcd.net) is a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization under section 501(c) 3 of the IRS tax code. The center’s mission is to advance the research on the biology of chronic disease and to accelerate the discovery of a cure for these diseases. The CBCD first published Dr. Hanan Polansky’s highly acclaimed “Purple” book, entitled “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease” in 2003. In this book, he explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.
