Infectious Mononucleosis and Holistic Alternative Medical Treatment

Enliven Wellness offers natural, holistic, and alternative medicine treatment designed to treat the underlaying health issues causing infectious mononucleosis (mono) in Bridgeport, WV.

What is Mono?

Infectious mononucleosis, also known as mono, is a viral infection commonly caused by the Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), a member of the herpes virus family. EBV is contagious and typically spread by saliva. About 90% of adults have evidence of previous infection. EBV infects epithelial cells and B lymphocytes (white blood cells). The virus will remain in latency within the B cells for the duration of an infected person's life.  

Symptoms associated with Infectious mononucleosis

Mono usually presents with chronic fatigue, soar throat, rash head and body aches and swollen lymph nodes. If allowed to progress, an enlarged spleen or liver may develop.  

Cause of Infection

From a holistic standpoint, mono should be a self limited infection. Your adaptive immunity should develop. Your body must have the available biochemical energy needed to detect and destroy the Epstein-Barr Virus and the infected cells. Issues occur when your body is energy depleted and isn't able to properly fight the infection. This leads to prolonged fatigue.  

HOlistic Treatment Vs. Medical Treatment

Most patients have been to their medical doctor and are aware of their diagnosis when they start care, but not 100% of the time. Typical medical advice is described on the CDC mono website.  We encourage you to follow your medical professional's advice and are happy to work with them to improve your health. 

If your symptom have persisted beyond the typical time frame for mono, your body's low biochemical energy may be the cause. The holistic treatment at Enliven is designed to strengthen the body and allow it to fight the infection more aggressively by naturally.
