    Hey there!
    I saw Dr. Dantini-
    no luck with him.
    He did some testing for viral stuff and puts you on valtrex to try to lower your epstein barr virus. That's about it. . .why were you thinking of going to him?

    I'm thinking of consulting him because I would like to know which viruses I have positive. Do you remember which ones he tested you for? Did you notice anything w/treatment? Thanks

    Here you go guys for anyone interested in Dantini-

    Just so you know - no protocol on website was followed. I had 2 visits and when the antivirtals weren;t working he said sorry can't help.

    Here are the tests:

    Parvovirus B-19 Antibody (IGG) ( mine was high )
    Parvovirus B-19 Ab IGM - (normal)

    Epstein Barr Virus Early Antigen ( EBV-EA) IGG AB

    ( mine was also high)

    CMV IGG Antibody ( mine was high)
    CMV IGM Antibody (normal)

    Sed Rate By MOdified Westergren- (normal)

    Herpes Virus 6 Antibody Panel
    -Herpes Virus 6 Ab IGM
    -Herpes Virus 6 Ab IGG

    ( both were normal for me)

    As a said before I took valtex for 3 mths 1 gram 3 x a day with no results . .feel free to let me know if you need more info

    hope this helps you out suz!
    blessings,

    My PCP asked me to please not go to Dr Dantini because of being put on Valtrex for an amount of time as it can damage your kidneys. I am going to an allergist to see which foods I may be allergic to. And my PCP will run the other test

    I think I consulted with Dantini about three years ago. Is he out of Florida? He helped, but I've since discovered way more that has helped me really get back to normal.

    Try monolaurin. It is a natural antiviral derived from coconut oil and there are no side effects. It was the final piece of the puzzle for me. But I found that I really need the help of a good probiotic for just the right balance. You can get monolaurin from vitamin shoppe and a couple of other sites if you do a search you will learn alot.

    I was on Dantini's diet, very restrictive, basically candida diet, so I tried sbo probiotics with very good results. There are two products that I've found that work the best. One by "garden of life" and the other Nature's Biotics by Life science products.

    Oh yess and I also tested positive for herpes simplex, Epstein Barr and CMV. I could tell when the viral load had just really shot up because my neck was really stiff and painful. Thought it was arthritis. When I got on the monolaurin I got mobility back in my neck and my should had frozen up and I got mobility of my shoulder back. Somehow I think these viruses are associated with the classic tender points of the fibro patient.
