Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasitic microorganism, chlamydia trachomatis. In most cases, chlamydia occurs as a part of a combined infection with gonorrhea or other venereal diseases. Low immune function is the reason for infections like chlamydia and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Antibiotics destroy beneficial bacteria in the body leading to yeast overgrowth that can show up as oral thrush and various gastrointestinal disturbances.

The top natural supplements for chlamydia treatment are:

Cat’s claw: Cat’s claw has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It increases immune response. However, this is not recommended for pregnant women, or for people who have had organ transplantation, and who are on anticoagulant medication.

Garlic: Garlic is one of nature’s best antibiotics with powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties. Three to five cloves a day is beneficial in the treatment of chlamydia. Try garlic bulb cloves and garlic supplements.

Astragalus root: Astragalus root has been used in China for centuries and is good for the treatment of chlamydia. It stimulates the immune system by supporting white blood cell count.

Kelp seaweed: Kelp seaweed is beneficial for thyroid and mineral deficiencies. It is rich in nutrients and promotes glandular health.

Echinacea and goldenseal combo: Echinacea and goldenseal work on the immune system. The combination has powerful antimicrobial properties.

Colloidal silver and zinc combo: SilvaSolution Lozenges contain colloidal Silver and zinc which support the immune system and ward off infections.

Turmeric: Turmeric has been used for ages for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant and mops up free radicals that damage cells in the body. 500 milligrams of turmeric every day is an essential part of chlamydia treatment.

Vitamin B: B vitamins are essential for many functions. They are precursors of coenzymes in the process of conversion of cellular energy and useful in repairing and maintaining nerve structures.

Vitamin C: Vitamin C offers antioxidant protection for enzyme systems of the body. It also maintains white blood cell function. The buffered form of vitamin C produces less stomach irritation.
