Alternative Treatments Help Ease Mononucleosis (Mono)

It is believed that between 80-95% of the population will have experienced the disease known as Mononucleosis by the age of 40. Teenage children receive the severest symptoms, a painful sore throat and extreme fatigue. This virus may at first be thought to be a simple cold, however if the symptoms persist, a doctor can do a simple test that will confirm if in fact one is ill with this disease.

Fortunately, there are a number of alternative medicine options to ease the discomfort and help us cope. Some of these include naturopathy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, massage, nutritional supplements, and energizing diets.

Vitamin supplements such as the B complex assist the body in regaining energy. Vitamin C helps the blood flow and minerals such as magnesium assist in regaining one’s strength. Zinc and Propolis boost the immune system. And the herb Echinacea fights inflammation.

Aromatherapy uses special fragrances that help the body heal. Lavender has a calming effect and thyme is both an antiseptic and expectorant. Eucalyptus has antibiotic properties. Sage is a good astringent.

One other less known form of natural medicine has its origins in India. Ayurvedic medicine balances the imbalance in a body. For Mono it is recommended to gargle with salt water and turmeric.

A body becomes ill if its immune system is too low to fight off the germs. To maintain a healthy body it is necessary to drink plenty of water as water flushes out the toxins that accumulate in the body. Furthermore it is essential to get proper nutrition on a regular basis and proper sleep. During sleep the body heals and rejuvenates itself. It is also advisable to wash your hands regularly because many germs are passed from one person to another through touching, whether each other or a common object. And lastly, breathe clean air. Yoga masters know the importance of breathing properly because it maintains good health. By breathing in pollution or cigarette smoke, the lungs are not bringing oxygen to the body, and oxygen is one of the essential requirements to maintain life.
