Diagnosis of yellow eggs/disease on mint

This year my mint has become infected with a yellow disease. It could be rust but the leaves and stems are very noticeably deformed - much more so than any pictures I have seen of rust infection. Please can you confirm what it is and suggest the best remedy?

I have had this. The only solution I have found is to cut it back to ground level replant in new sterilized soil; 8 out of 10 times it will re-grow perfectly about 3 feet tall. In a pot it would be maybe a foot and a half tall.
