Once you know that you suffer from a bacterial infection with chlamydia it is important to seek medical help and get proper treatment right away. However, in order to prevent the disease from spreading any further, you can try these home remedies for chlamydia. Since it is not a virus, the affection spreads through direct contact between individuals. Hence, stay clear of any sexual intercourse while undergoing the treatment.

Although both sexes are susceptible to chlamydia infections, teenage girls and young women are more likely to catch the disease easily. This is because the cervix is not fully matured and, as a consequence, less resistant to bacterial infection. We highly recommend to practice safe sex to stay free of any unwanted infections, but you can also prevent this type of disease by taking healthy doses of home remedies for chlamydia.

1. Garlic Cloves

Apart from being a great spice, garlic also contains natural active ingredients with strong anti-viral properties. Also, it makes for the best antibiotic you can find in the nature. Hence, if you consume about four garlic cloves a day, it should be enough to kill bacteria associated with chlamydia. If it doesn’t clear the infection altogether, at least it stops it from further spreading to other individuals. There are several ways in which you can consume garlic. Either eat it raw, add it to your meals, or take garlic capsules. You can find the latter available for purchase at local pharmacies.

However, we recommend you benefit from the unprocessed raw ingredients, so try to eat garlic cloves instead of running to the pharmacy. However, if you suffer from diabetes, do not attempt to eat this much raw garlic without consulting with your health care provider first. It may cause blood clotting, which will only result in further complications.

2. Sage Tea

You can look at sage like the cleaning lady of your immune system. The active ingredients present in sage leaves will keep stop the chlamydia infection in its tracks and alleviate the symptoms associated with it.

Let the mix steep for about five minutes. Strain the contents so you are left with only the liquid and discard the leaves.

Home remedies for chlamydia like this tea, for example, rely on simple methods to produce and keep only the most beneficial ingredients in their composition.

Hence, if you eat healthy while taking goldenseal, you double your chances to fight off the infection faster.

Consider eating more foods rich in fibers such as beans, nuts, whole grains or seeds. Also, do not overlook the importance of dairy products such as yogurt and milk.
