Herbs Supporting the Treatment of Chlamydia


Chlamydia pneumoniae is a gram-negative bacterium, but with a cell wall much stiffer than is usually found in gram-negative bacteria.

Chlamydia is one of the tick-borne co-infections.

Chlamydia pneumoniae frequently affects the respiratory system, causing pneumonia (often referred to as atypical pneumonia), bronchitis, laryngitis, pharyngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, and causes asthma symptoms.

Chlamydia pneumoniae is very important in the differential diagnosis of Lyme disease as it can cause nervous system disorders, myocarditis and reactive arthritis. The extra-pulmonary symptoms of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection over a very long period of time may be latent and are often difficult to recognize.

Chlamydia pneumoniae-induced reactive arthritis is often difficult to distinguish from Lyme arthritis. In the course of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection, attention should also be paid to Guillain-Bare syndrome. Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune disease that causes acute multi-root demyelinating inflammation, in which the immune system attacks parts of the peripheral nervous system, causing muscle weakness and tingling feelings in various parts of the body.

Moreover, Chlamydia pneumoniae can cause other symptoms, such as: chronic fatigue, burning sensation of various parts of the body, paralysis, strokes, problems with blood pressure, headaches, dementia, mental fog, mental disorders, pain in the testicles.


Herbal Protocol Supporting the Natural Treatment of Chlamydia


Many herbs are very effective in fighting Chlamydia. One of the most effective natural methods of treating Chlamydia with herbs is the Buhner protocol for Chlamydia from Stephen Harrod Buhner's book "Natural Healing of Lyme Borreliosis and the Coinfections Chlamydia and Spotted Fever Rickettsiosis ".

The main antibacterial herbs against Chlamydia pneumoniae are plants containing berberine. Such plants are, among others Barberry or Canadian goldenseal (Goldenseal, Latin Hydrastis canadensis). Chinese skullcap (Latin Scutellaria baicalensis) exhibits antibacterial properties against Chlamydia.  Buhner also recommends the use of vitamin A. Retinol (a metabolite of vitamin A) inhibits the ability of Chlamydia to infect the endothelium and epithelial cells.

Chlamydia, like other intracellular pathogens from the group of tick-borne infections, induces the cytokine cascade. Cytokines are informational molecules that facilitate the infectious process of bacteria and the extraction of nutrients from the host cells. Therefore, the cytokine cascade must be inhibited to disrupt the infectious process of Chlamydia.

Salvia miltiorrhiza and Chinese skullcap (Latin Scutellaria baicalensis) are the main herbs to inhibit the cytokine cascade recommended by Buhner in his natural protocol for the treatment of Chlamydiosis.

Chlamydia also intercepts the host's immune system responses and functions. Chlamydia can therefore radically rebuild the human immune system in such a way as to adjust it to its advantage. A malfunctioning immune system does not notice the threat from bacteria and does not fight infection. Abnormalities in the work of the immune system often lead to autoimmune disorders. A deregulated immune system is a problem not only during the course of the infection, but also after the end of treatment, which will have further consequences. Herbs are very effective in modulating immune functions and restoring the proper functioning of the immune system.

Buhner's proposal in this case is three herbs: Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng, Latin Withania somnifera), Licorice and Cordyceps sinensis. According to Buhner's recommendations, these three herbs are recommended in the form of herbal mixture. The ACL Herbal Mix product contains ready-made macerate of Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng, Latin Withania somnifera), Cordyceps and Licorice.

The protection of cells and organs attacked by the bacterium is another integral part of treatment in Buhner's protocols. Bacteria have a tremendous, destructive effect on the organs. The protection of organs and cells should always be an integral part of any therapy. Salvia miltiorrhiza, Cordyceps sinensis and Bidens pilosa play a key role here as an essential part of the natural treatment of Chlamydia with herbs.

Natural treatment of Chlamydia will comprehensively affect many infection mechanisms. If you want to use herbs for Chlamydia remember to read the full protocol proposed by Buhner, as well as its contraindications.

Herbs for Babesia

Babesia is a parasitic protozoan that resembles malaria but is transmitted by ticks. Babesia causes the disease known as Babesiosis (other names are Babesiosis, Babesiosis). Babesia infection often coexists with Lyme disease and / or other tick-borne infections. The symptoms of babesiosis infection range from mild to severe. Mild forms very often go unrecognized because they are mistakenly taken for symptoms of Lyme disease. Early adopters often report high fever and chills. Chronic infections may be mildly symptomatic, and the most common symptoms are: intermittent fever or low-grade fever, chills and joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, sweating, and "inability to take a full breath".

Co-infection with Lyme spirochetes exacerbates the symptoms of both diseases, then their course becomes more severe and the consequences for the body are more serious. Symptoms may then include severe headaches, haemolytic anemia, central nervous system involvement, high fever and convulsions. A synergistic, mutually enhancing effect of Borrelia and Babesia spirochetes on the body was found. Borrelia DNA occurs more clearly and lingers longer in the bloodstream when co-infection with Babesia occurs. Then the negative effects on the joints, heart and nervous system are more serious. In some cases of co-infections, transverse myelitis with paresis of the arms and legs was found. The development of the disease is more rapid from the beginning, the convalescence period is longer, and the spectrum of symptoms is much wider.

Babesia Treatment – Buhner Protocol for Babesia

Many herbs are very effective in combating Babesia infections, to which the protozoan does not develop immunity. As in the case of Lyme disease, also in the case of Babesiosis, the antimicrobial effect is only one of the elements leading to an effective therapy.

In the treatment of Babesiosis, attention should be paid to the important mechanisms of action of Babesia which impede its treatment. Babesia natural herbal treatment takes into account each of the following aspects.

Like malaria embryos, Babesia penetrates red blood cells - erythrocytes, where, by developing and reproducing, it destroys them. In addition, in the course of Babesia infection, there may be blockage of capillary blood vessels and microcirculation stagnation due to the deposition of fragments of damaged erythrocytes in the vessels. Their presence in the bloodstream can cause inflammation of the liver, kidneys and spleen.

Another important mechanism of Babesia infection is a strong negative effect on the immune system. Babesia changes the immune polarity in a very specific way, which changes the human immune response from Th 1 to Th 2. This leads to a poor reaction of the immune system to the infection and the body cannot eliminate this pathogen.

In the natural treatment of Babesiosis, the most commonly used herbs recommended by Buhner (listed on the official Buhner website are: Alchornea cordifolia, Cryptolepis sanguinolenta, Sida acuta. These are herbs that exhibit a strong antiprotozoal effect and exhibit a systemic effect, i.e. they spread throughout the bloodstream, thus affecting every cell and organ. In addition, they strengthen the immune system, and Sida acuta protects the red blood cells. We recommend adding L-arginine to this protocol. Babesia is very sensitive to L-arginine, so supplementation with L-arginine helps to inhibit Babesia infection.  Buhner’s protocol for Babesia is one of the most popular natural treatments of Babesia infection.

With more resistant infections, it is worth using the more comprehensive protocol recommended in Buhner's book "Natural Treatments for Lyme Coinfections: Anaplasma, Babesia, and Ehrlichia". In this case, the amount of herbs and preparations used is much greater, namely: Cryptolepis, Bidens pilosa, Artemisina, Sida acuta, Salvia miltiorrhiza, Milk Thistle, Ashwagandha, Panax ginseng, Licorice, Schisandra, L-arginine, Vitamin B2. In this combination of herbs for Babesia, in addition to acting against Babesia, strengthening immunity, protecting erythrocytes and organs, you will also enhance the regulation of the cytokine cascade, protect the endothelium, inhibit the arginase production as well as increase in the level of L-arginine and nitric oxide (NO).

Herbs used in the natural treatment of Babesia will comprehensively affect many infection mechanisms. If you want to use herbal therapy to treat Babesia, remember to read the protocol proposed by Buhner, as well as its contraindications.
