Can Herbs kill Monkeypox?
What is monkey pox?
Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by the monkeypox virus. It leads to skin rashes and flu-like symptoms. Like the more well-known virus that causes smallpox, it is a member of the family called orthopoxvirus.
Monkeypox was discovered in 1958 when two cases of a smallpox-like disease occurred in groups of monkeys used for research. It is mainly transmitted through human contact with infected rodents, but sometimes it can also be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. There are two known species (clades) of monkeypox virus - one originating in Central Africa and one originating in West Africa. The current global outbreak (2022) is caused by the less severe West African strain.
What are the signs and symptoms of monkeypox?
After exposure, it may take several days to several weeks to develop symptoms. Early signs of monkeypox include flu-like symptoms such as:
Swollen lymph nodes.
Herbs with an abundance of chemical compounds such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, phenolic acids, alkaloids, proanthocyanidins, anthraquinones, etc. appear to be particularly effective antiviral compounds. My humble opinion is to consume foods and herbs high in ANTI-VIRAL active ingredients.
