Chlamydia trachomatis is a pathogen that is almost exclusive of humans. Four serotypes (A, B, Ba, C) are responsible for trachoma, a conjunctival infection that occurs in developing countries. Eight serotypes (D to K) are involved in sexually transmitted diseases (M.S.T. frequent and often asymptomatic).

It is not uncommon to see Chlamydia infections that last for months despite antibiotic treatments. For those for whom antibiotic therapy has been ineffective or for those who do not wish to use antibiotics, they must obviously think of all the natural antibiotics.

It is also necessary to stop at the vaginal flora. It is composed mainly of lactobacilli. These bacteria turn lactose into lactic acid to acidify the environment and prevent the growth of certain harmful bacteria.

When this flora is insufficient or destroyed, the vaginitis settles with its procession of inconveniences. The remedy is simple: it is then necessary to recolonize the vaginal flora by lactobacilli. This rebalancing of the vaginal flora can be achieved by means of eggs with probiotics (like Symbiovag for example).

In the case of chlamydia, taking grapefruit seed extract or colloidal silver will often solve the problem. Some essential oils or plants are however more specifically adapted to the fight against this parasite. The test kit for gonorrhea, chlamydia and other sexually transmitted diseases provides an effective way to detect the pathogens.

Essential oils

The essential oils of myrtle (Myrtus communis), thyme (Thymus vulgaris) and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus cryptonifera) have proved their effectiveness on chlamydiae. They can be used in ovules that will be prepared by the pharmacist. You can also use this remedy more specifically for urinary infections but whose action includes chlamydia infections.

This remedy has the name Cystactif (it contains Calluna vulgaris (heather) as a mother-to-be, Uva ursi TM (bearberry), essential oil of cajeput (Melaleuca cajeputi), niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia), oregano (Origanum compactum) and sandalwood (Santalum album).

The bearded Usnea (Usnea barbata). This algae or foam can be used with antiseptic and antiviral properties. The USA seems effective in getting rid of chlamydia, but it is found very difficult (in the form of homeopathic granules or mother tincture in pharmacy). Be careful, do not risk identifying this lichen yourself to make herbal teas because two lichens that are very similar often grow side by side.

The plant is medicinal but the other one can be toxic, so we must be sure to recognize the species before using it for its properties. In mother tincture, take close doses and fairly good amounts (average adult: 1.5 to 2 ml of dye every 2 hours).

If the symptoms do not disappear or decrease after 12 to 24 hours after the beginning of the fatigue, or if the fever returns, it means that it does not work and it is useless to continue the treatment.

All plants that contain berberine: There are 400 shrubs in this family. But the extracts that showed an action on chlamydia are mainly goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), holly mahonia (Mahonia aquifolium) and barberry (Berberis vulgaris).

Effectiveness

Goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadensis). This herb contains, in addition to berberine, hydrastine and more than twenty other alkaloids, which are said to have a synergistic antibacterial effect of berberine.

The barberry (Berberis vulgaris) can be bought more easily in our climate as dried berries. This plant (and especially its fruit) is one of the classics of Indian and Chinese medicine. It was documented for the first time in 1933 precisely for its action on trachoma (bacterial eye infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis).

Mahonia (Mahonia aquifolium). In 2004, a study at the Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia) confirmed the antifungal and antibacterial effect of this plant. Jatrorrhizine, one of the components of Mahonia aquifolium, appears to be the most potent active ingredient.

Echinacea kills a wide variety of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria and yeast infections. It also strengthens the tissues and the immune system in general. Saw palmetto is effective in treating the symptoms of the urinary tract of chlamydia which occurs frequently in men. Its antiseptic properties are particularly effective in the treatment of diseases of the urinary tract.

The gentian. Traditional Chinese medicine usually treats chlamydia with a combination of two or three herbs. Gentian is included in all herbal remedies for the treatment of chlamydia infection.

The test kit for gonorrhea and chlamydia is available online, which boosts convenience and confidentiality.
