Bacteria will morph and it’s resistant to conventional antibiotics will grow. There is research that is looking into new antimicrobial agents. Researchers at the University of Ottawa are examining the use of certain Canadian botanicals for the treatment of gonorrhea. A few that are showing hope for effective treatments are: Kinnikinnick, goldenseal, black cherry, roseroot. Of course, follow your doctor’s prescription and you can supplement it with these natural gonorrhea treatments and remedies for the symptoms.
Berberine Researchers in the Canadian study referenced above indicated Berberine inhibited the growth of all gonorrhea isolates. It was noted that further exploration is needed, but botanicals do represent a potential source of compounds to inhibit the bacteria responsible for gonorrhea.
Supplementing a high-quality berberine to your treatment may be helpful to combat gonorrhea symptoms. It is safe to take 500 milligrams three times a day. If you take medications to lower blood glucose levels, it is not recommended. Side effects include gastrointestinal issues like flatulence, pain, constipation, cramping or diarrhea, and are considered minor by most people.
Goldenseal Research shows that another powerful native herb, goldenseal, also demonstrates antibiotic properties. Adding it to your gonorrhea treatment is a safe and effective way to boost your immune system’s response to the. Goldenseal should be avoided if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, liver disease, or you are pregnant or breastfeeding. adding additional goldenseal is not necessary if you are taking a high-quality berberine supplement as mentioned above.
Apple Cider Vinegar You have probably already read about all the ACV benefits. We know it can help with infections, certain types of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. So it should come to no surprise that ACV can be helpful to treat gonorrhea symptoms. ACV can be applied to affected areas with a cotton ball, or you can soak in a bath with a couple of cups for 20 minutes.
Echinacea Steeped in native healing practices worldwide, echinacea is the perfect accompaniment to gonorrhea treatment protocols and to lessen common gonorrhea symptoms. From colds and flu to pain and even snake bites, the Echinacea helps our immune system function optimally. In fact, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service recommends a dosage of 10 milligrams per kilogram of body weight for 10 days to stimulate the immune system.
Epsom Salt A powerful detoxifier — and used for generations as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever — Epsom salt baths may help alleviate some of the symptoms of gonorrhea. While viral infections, including herpes, are more commonly treated with Epsom salts, adding a couple of cups to bathwater and relaxing for 20 minutes or longer, can help cleanse the mucous membranes affected by gonorrhea or other STDs.
L-Arginine With impressive inflammation fighting and detoxification properties, the amino acid L-arginine also demonstrates antibacterial properties. Studies show that it can inhibit the growth of certain bacterial infections. In addition, it can help to lower inflammation which can be especially useful for those with gonorrhea experiencing joint pain and septic arthritis.
Taking 1,000 milligrams each day during gonorrhea treatment, and supplementing with foods rich in this amino acid can help ease symptoms. Add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cage-free eggs, kefir, organic organ meats, and wild-caught fish to your diet an added boost L-arginine.
Probiotics Whenever you are fighting a bacterial infection or virus, upping your intake of probiotic foods is wise. Kefir, sauerkraut and kimchi, kombucha, yogurt and apple cider vinegar are just a few great sources to introduce healthy bacteria into your system to join the fight against the unhealthy bacteria causing the infection.
In addition, taking a high-quality probiotic supplement formulated from soil-based organisms offering at least 50 billion CFUs per serving can help your body more effectively fight unhealthy bacteria, wherever they are in your system.
Raw Honey If gonorrhea has infected the throat, adding a tablespoon of raw honey to warm — not hot — water or tea, can relieve sore throat pain. In addition, it is known to fight dozens and dozens of types of bacteria; however, no detail is available on its effect on Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacterium. For 1,000s of years, raw honey has been an effective treatment for wound healing, for gastrointestinal upset, fungal and viral infections, and as an anti-inflammatory.
Black Tea Globally, one of the most popular drinks, black tea shows impressive antibacterial activity. Using it as the basis of raw honey drinks is a great way to absorb the health benefits of the world’s most popular drink.
If gonorrhea has infected the eyes and there is oozing of pus, a black tea compress may help to fight the infection and relieve the discomfort. Soak a high-quality black tea bag in very warm water to activate the oils in the tea leaves for one minute. Gently squeeze out the excess water, leaving it just barely moist. Place it on your eye, and relax for 20 or 30 minutes, allowing the tea to soak in. Some people may find a touch of stinging or burning at the beginning, but this just shows that it is working.
