Mononucleosis Support Group

Infectious mononucleosis (also known in North America as mono, the kissing disease or Pfeiffer's disease, and more commonly known as glandular fever in other English-speaking countries) is a disease seen most commonly in adolescents and young adults, characterized by fever, sore throat and fatigue.

coconut oil

has anyone tried coconut oil supplements?

Based on the attached link, it sounds like it works. Any comments or feedback would be appreciated.



Hi! My daughter has mono with hepatitis. I have been treating her with coconut oil for a week now and she had made remarkable progress. The jaundice is gone and her pain level is decreasing on a daily basis. Her appetite is returning to normal as are her elimination functions. She had been bedridden for 3 wks prior to the coconut oil. It took 6 days to see a remarkable difference.
I have also boosted vitamin C. 1000-2000mgs every 3 hours as well as a multi vitamin (including E & A). Also a tea called Boldo. It is an herb used widely in South America for hepatitis.
Check out the book "Let's Get Well" by Adelle Davis. A wealth of info on vitamin and mineral therapy.
I wish you the bes for a timely recovery.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
