Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria are the primary cause of the prevalent STI gonorrhea. It spreads from one person to another by sexual contact, such as oral, anal, or vaginal sex.
Fortunately, it is quickly curable. For both men and women, untreated gonorrhea can result in a variety of long-term health issues. Untreated gonorrhea in males can result in epididymitis, an inflammation of the sperm tube. Infertility may develop from severe epididymitis. It can develop to pelvic inflammatory disease in females, which can result in additional issues including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic abscesses. Gonorrhea can be passed from a pregnant woman to her unborn child, who may later get joint infections, blindness, and blood-related diseases. Gonorrhea can also spread to the circulation in both men and women, where it can lead to a disease known as disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI), which in extreme circumstances can be fatal.
Antibiotics may be recommended by your doctor to treat gonorrhea. However, treating this STI naturally has been done for millennia. Here are a few natural treatments for gonorrhea.
Garlic is frequently used as a DIY cure for bacterial illnesses because of its antibacterial characteristics. A 2005 study that looked at how garlic products and extracts affected gonorrhea-causing bacteria discovered that 47% of the items had antibacterial activity. However, this investigation was conducted in a lab environment rather than on gonorrhea-infected patients.
Apple cider vinegar
It is one of the most well-liked all-natural treatments for gonorrhea. You can consume apple cider vinegar or use a solution to apply topically. Although apple cider vinegar has antimicrobial characteristics that may be beneficial to you, you should exercise caution because it is also quite acidic and may hurt the sensitive tissues of your genitals. Furthermore, neither a research nor a study has disputed these assertions.
The antibacterial properties of the goldenseal plant, also known as berberine or Hydrastis canadensis L., are well documented. In the 1800s, this was utilized by European settlers as a gonorrhea therapy. There hasn’t been much study on using goldenseal to treat gonorrhea, although some studies have looked at it as an alternative to antibiotics to treat resistant staph germs.
Goldenseal is available as creams and capsules for topical use. Consult a physician or certified herbalist for the recommended dosage prior to taking the pill.
Coneflower and echinacea both have anti-inflammatory characteristics that may help lessen inflammation in the sexual organs, including gonorrhea. Its topical treatment is believed to help relieve skin issues and reduce irritability and is available as gels or creams. The immune system has also been proven to be stimulated by using echinacea extract.
Anyone with an STD may benefit from the aloe vera gel’s cooling properties. This potent plant may moisturize your skin and hasten the recovery of wounds. Additionally, it possesses antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. To profit from it, you can utilize it as a gel and consume its juice.
Use of a condom during intercourse is the best defense against gonorrhea and other STDs. It is preferable to forgo sexual activity completely until the STD has been treated if you are aware that your partner has one.
