"I usually concentrate on using 3 or 4 of these products at a time. All of these products need to be built up very slowly in the system, so they don’t cause a detox or “die-off” reaction. Make sure you’re working with a practitioner that can monitor symptoms, as some of these products can build up int system.
Another important note for Epstein-Barr is to make sure you’re methylating properly so particularly if you have the MTHFR gene making sure you’re getting adequate B12 and B9."

Vegan Pumpkin Pie
Yield: 1 Standard sized pie
Prep Time 10 Minutes Cook Time 40 minutes Total Time 50 minutesThis vegan, gluten-free pumpkin pie has al the classic pumpkin pie flavor without the guilt.
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie fillings)
1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoon organic cornstarch
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
1 prepared and par-baked almond flour pie crust or favorite 9-inch pie shell
Dairy-free whipped cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, coconut milk, syrup, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cornstarch, salt, and vanilla until very smooth. Pour into the par-baked pie crust and carefully transfer to the oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until the pumpkin pie filling, has set. Be sure to check halfway through baking and cover the crust edges with foil or a crust shield if they are getting dark. It’s okay if it still jiggles a bit, it sets while it cools overnight.
Remove from the oven and let the pie cool completely. Transfer to the refrigerator to set up overnight. Serve chilled with dairy-free whipped cream.
Paleo Option: You can use arrowroot in place of the cornstarch, though the consistency won’t be quite as perfect. Sub coconut sugar for the brown sugar or omit it. This recipe makes one standard 9-inch pie. If you are using a store-bought crust, you’ll want to blind bake the shell first, so you don’t end up with a soggy crust.
