Virus for 6 Weeks

Posted by Paula (Lancaster, OH) on 09/25/2006

I have had this virus for about a month and a half now. I felt like I had gotten better about 2 weeks ago and then it came back with a vengence.Low grade fever every day, plugged ears, severe cough,postnasal drip, sore throat, swollen spleen, swollen glands, fatigue. My daughter has same symptoms and was diagnosed via blood test with mono. I am pretty sure thats what I have too. I am desperate for an antivral cure. Have tried crushed garlic 3 x day w/ no effect.I inhale saline every 2 hours thru nose. Antibiotics were tried in the beginning before the mono dianosis with no result.Tried Cayenne pepper gargle which relieves the sore throat but I am looking for a more permanent solution. I was told that olive leaf extract will kick the virus but I cannot find any info on it. Does anyone have any they could pass on?

Dear Paula: You need to raise your body's immune system first before trying some external remedies. Take plenty of zinc acetate supplements like 25-50 mg. of it per day. IF you cannot find zinc acetate, then zinc citrate, zinc gluconate or zinc chloride will do. The other thing is making about 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to 1/2 glass of water with 12 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Take a slow small sip (about 5 cc per sip) over the course of about 2 or 3 hours should where the interval of sips is around 15 minute each. This should kill the throat viruses. This is a more permanent cure. Ted
