Using Homeopathy

Conventional medicine is very helpful in diagnosing mono and alleviating some of the symptoms, but many people turn to alternative therapies for a more holistic approach.

What is homeopathy?

One such approach is homeopathic medicine, which is a gentle method of holistic healing. It works with the body's own healing systems and is suitable for everyone, regardless of age or sickness.

The homeopathic approach is that a substance, which in large doses produces symptoms in a well person, can be used in small doses to treat the same problems in a sick person. The theory is to treat very specific symptoms, both physical and emotional, in order to provide long term relief.

How can homeopathy help mono sufferers?

Mono sufferers experience many symptoms such as sore throats, fatigue and fever. These symptoms can make every day activities seem difficult. Since there is no cure for mono, people often look to alternative therapies to help them ease their symptoms,  which can often last for months.

An experienced homeopath will ask detailed questions as to the patient's symptoms, emotional wellbeing and constitutional type.

Homeopathy has been found to be beneficial for physical, mental and emotional complaints. Due to the stress of being sick for a long period of time, mono is a disease that can affect patients in areas beyond physical symptoms.

Thus homeopathy looks past the label of the disease, and attempts to cure the causes as well as the symptoms.

Which homeopathic remedies are good for mono?

Homeopathic medicines are recommended based on the individual and their symptoms; however there are some general remedies that are often used in treating mono. Advice should always be taken from an experienced homeopathic practitioner.

Belladonna - good for the early stages of mono. Used for treating sudden onset of fever, face flushes and a painful throat.

Phytolacca - useful for aching throughout the body, throat inflammation and pain when swallowing that radiates to the ears.

Mercurius - helpful for sore throats in the later stages of mono. For individuals very sensitive to temperature, with tremendous thirst and weakness in the limbs.

Kali muriaticum - usually used for patients with very swollen tonsils. Also useful for treating infectious mononucleosis.


Homeopathy is a holistic system that works alongside the body's own healing powers to try and stimulate long term health and well-being. It can be a useful support for mono sufferers trying to regain a state of balance in their health.
