Glandular Fever Treatment

A Natural Remedy for Glandular Fever Treatment

Glandular Fever, also known as ‘the kissing disease,’ is caused by the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) and is most commonly spread through the saliva of someone who carried the virus. We have had many patients over the years with this condition and typically contract the virus whilst returning from a holiday.

When you first come in contact with the infected saliva, the virus can infect the cells on the lining of your throat. The virus then passes into your white blood cells before spreading through your lymphatic system.

After the infection passed, people usually develop a life-long immunity to it and won’t generally experience the symptoms again.

It is also possible to come into contact with the virus but not develop any symptoms at all. These people are called EBV asymptomatic carriers and can spread it to uninfected people. Though even if you have suffered from the symptoms of the virus and it has eventually passed, your saliva may still be infectious a few months after recovery and even on and off for a few years following – This is due to the virus remaining dormant (inactive) for the rest of your life after having been exposed to it.

Common symptoms of glandular fever include:

  • Fevers
  • A sore throat – usually more painful than any other sore throat experienced, can feel like a stabbing pain each time you swallow
  • Swollen glands, typically in your neck but can also occur in the armpits
  • Fatigue

Other less common symptoms, which may develop before the main symptoms above, include:

  • Aching muscles
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Swollen tonsils
  • Jaundice
  • A tender or swollen stomach
  • General feeling on being unwell

Though these symptoms can leave after a 2 – 3 weeks and fevers usually last 10 – 14 days, the feeling of fatigue can last for months.

Whilst the treatment protocol below is a general overview, we always recommend booking a consultation face to face or if this is not possible then a consultation over the phone is also available.

Diet advice;

Another useful nutritional remedy for treating glandular fever are fenugreek seeds. Individuals can take fenugreek tea or can also gargle with water containing fenugreek seeds. Take 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds in 500 ml of water. Boil the water, after some time water become yellow due to fenugreek seeds. Drain the mixture and allow it to cool till it become lukewarm. Gargle with this solution 2-3 times a day till soreness of throat is recovered completely.
