  • In Stage One:  It is initially dormant in the blood replicating and waiting for an opportunity to launch an infection

  • When you physically exhaust yourself and don’t fully recover, or if you are deficient in zinc and B12, or have a traumatic emotional experience, the virus detects these stress-related hormones and strikes

  • Also, when undergoing major hormonal changes e.g. puberty, pregnancy or menopause
