Alternative Therapies For Treatment Of STDs
01 Aug 2016
STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) are perhaps the most common infectious diseases in today’s world. Among them, the ones which are diagnosed frequently include genital herpes, chlamydia, genital warts, HIV, gonorrhea and syphilis. Ofttimes, the conventional treatment methods for these illnesses are quite expensive and do not bear fruitful results without one or more side effects.
Fortunately, there are certain alternative and natural therapies that have been proven to be effective in the treatment of STDs. They are highly beneficial, less expensive and have few to zero side effects. More and more people suffering from venereal diseases are resorting to these alternative therapies as an ideal substitute for the conventional ones. These alternative therapies are being described below in detail:
Acupuncture is one of the most popular and widely used modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This therapy aims at restoring the balance of Qi flow within human body and improving overall well-being. It is administered by inserting tiny sterilised needles along points located on meridian lines on the body. It can be successfully used to reduce or even eliminate the symptoms associated with STDs and enhance immunity, especially in patients suffering from herpes.
Homoeopathy is a holistic and mild treatment method that has been in existence for centuries. It follows an approach that involves treatment from physical as well as emotional perspective. While being used to address the symptoms of STDs, it is focused on utilisation of remedies closest to each and every symptom.
Nutritional therapy for STDs mainly involves administration of antioxidants like Vitamin C as well as consumption of immunity-enhancing foods. Vitamin C can prevent damage at cellular level due to chlamydia when used in conjunction with antibiotics. Besides that, the patient is also advised to avoid caffeine, processed foods and alcohol. For restoration of normal organisms that get eliminated due to antibiotic use or yeast infection, acidophilus is recommended also.
In addition to acupuncture, homoeopathy and nutritional therapy, massage, visualisation techniques and yoga also help to combat STDs by reducing stress and strengthening the immune system. TCM practitioners may prescribe certain natural herbs as natural antibiotics too, for reducing infections.
