Mononucleosis

Share This Page

dishpan Infectious mononucleosis is a viral infection that may include fever, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue.  For many people, the extreme fatigue continues for four to 6 weeks and even more.  Of course, you will be having regular medical care but here are some things you can also do; I know this will seem like a lot to someone who can barely get out of bed, but try and ask a friend to help you organize it for you.

Immunity:  Take an immune booster because you need all the help you can get.  Astragalus Root is an excellent immune booster.

Nutrition:  Follow the food guidelines in the book Eat Right 4 Your Type.”  I know from my own experience and from others that eating the wrong food wears me out.  If you have mononucleosis, you don’t need anything else working on you to make you feel tired.

Antiviral:  Two good natural anti-viral herbs are Echinacea Root and Pau D’Arco Inner Bark.  Elderberry is valuable here because it stops a virus from reproducing.

Lymph Swelling:  Take Devils Claw Tuber daily to keep your lymph nodes open.

Cleanse:  The virus is producing toxins that make you feel bad and getting rid of those toxins is an important part of your recovery.   Burdock Root is an important blood cleanser.  Give your feet a bath.  Not just any bath but a salt water bath.  Pour ½ cup table salt (or any bath salt you have on hand) into a container large enough for your feet.  A plastic dishpan works for me.  Fill 1/3 with the hottest water you can stand.  Soak your feet for 20 minutes.  Rinse and dry.  You will feel like you’ve been given wings.  This salt water bath for your feet is actually pulling toxins from your feet which is the lowest point of your body’s circulation.
