Like all the herpes viruses,http://cool-health-guidelines.blogspot.com/2014/09/glandular-fever.html the glandular fever virus remains in the body for life.
In some cases, the glandular fever virus can be reactivated when the body's defenses are lowered causing some people to get glandular fever twice or in rare cases, recurrent glandular fever.

Apart from through kissing, saliva can transmit the glandular fever virus by people sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, towels or toys. Glandular fever can be transmitted from mouth to hand so washing hands well is important.
See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures" for reasons why some people seem more susceptible to recurring glandular fever, and what you can do about it.
- Atypical lymphocytes - a type of white blood cell, in the blood. In mononucleosis, these atypical lymphocytes make up more than 10% of total lymphocytes.
- Increased total white blood cell count
- Antibody tests like the mono spot test.

Antibiotics like penicillin are of no help in mono. Glandular fever is caused by a virus, and antibiotics don't work against viruses. If you have a bacterial infection in addition to having glandular fever, your doctor may give you an antibiotic.
I believe that much more can be done to treat the virus naturally for a complete glandular fever recovery. See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures" for our full treatment plan.
In the book, I show the best natural health approaches to glandular fever treatment. I explain little known facts about nutrition, supplementation, pure water, adequate rest and sleep, stress reduction, and when to start gentle exercise. I also explain complementary therapies like the use of essential oils, homeopathy, massage, and visualization to ensure that glandular fever relapses do not occur.
The bottom line is how healthy your immune system is. If you still get recurring glandular fever with sore throats, swollen glands or fatigue, it is nature's way of telling you that something is wrong with your immune system.
It may be suppressed from poor eating habits, nutritional imbalances, stress, smoking or a chronic underlying disease. Your genes can also make you more susceptible to disease.
Fortunately, through general lifestyle practices like a healthy diet, stress reduction, regular exercise and taking some immune boosting supplements, you can strengthen your immunity and make a full glandular fever recovery.
