Gonorrhoea, or gonorrhea, is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by bacteria called ‘Neisseria gonorrhoeae', otherwise known as gonococcus. This condition was once known as ‘the clap’. The symptoms of gonorrhoea vary, but includes a thick green or yellow discharge from the vagina or penis, pain when urinating, and bleeding between periods in women. Sometimes, however, women experience no symptoms.
Gonorrhoea is only transmitted by vaginal, oral or anal sex. The infection can, however, be be passed from a pregnant woman to her baby.
Conventional Medical Treatment of Gonorrhoea
NHS Choices says that Gonorrhoea is usually treated with a short course of antibiotics, usually with a single antibiotic injection followed by one antibiotic tablet. The unborn baby is also treated with antibiotics, immediately following birth.
However, there is no mention on the NHS Choices website that there are now strains of gonorrhoea that are now resistant to antibiotics. As this linked article says, "if this becomes the predominant strain in the UK we're (that is, conventional medicine) in big trouble”.
Fortunately, this sexually transmitted disease is not resistant to homeopathic treatment.
Unfortunately, owing to the laws currently operation in Britain, no-one can recommend treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, like gonorrhoea, other than by a conventional medical doctor. This may become extremely difficult for conventional medical doctors, as they will increasingly have no treatment to offer, and either they, or the patients themselves, will have to refer on to treatment that is still effective.
Homeopathic Treatment of Gonorrhoea
Homeopathy does not treat illness or diseases. It treats the individual who has been diagnosed with a particular illness or disease. The distinction is important, and if you wish to read more about this, click on the chapter “Illness Diagnosis” above.
