Chlamydia, also known as Chlamydia Trachomatis, named after the bacteria that causes it, is a sexually transmitted disease rampant in the United states of America which is evident by the fact that this disease has over 1 million reported cases in United States alone. I stress on the term reported since it is a sexually transmitted disease so a plethora of cases go unreported or unnoticed by the recipients owing to the social stigma attached to the activities that lead to this affliction. There is also one false misconception about the curability of this disease that it cannot be cured once contracted which is utterly false and fabricated. There are several antibiotics that can be utilized to rid the body of this infection as well myriad number of home remedies at your disposal to help alleviate the pain and cure your body of this disease altogether.
The disease itself is curable quite easily either through antibiotics or through home remedies. However, long unnoticed exposure to the said disease might result in complications and can have long lasting repercussions for the diseased individuals such as vulnerability to other sexually transmitted diseases. So, the key is timing of diagnosis of the disease which can be tricky for women. The symptoms of chlamydia are not quite as apparent in women (hence, also termed as silent infection) as they are in men and most often this disease is transmitted to unsuspecting male partners of women afflicted with such disease. In males, one of the primary symptoms is discharge of a white liquid while urinating. The symptoms start exhibiting themselves somewhere around one to three weeks after contracting the disease. It is usually the rectum and genitals that are affected by this disease, however this infection can also spread to the throat area through oral sex.
Some of the symptoms in women include:
- Abundant vaginal discharge with a strong foul odor
- Nausea and pain in rectal areas
- Pain in lower abdominal area
- Inflammation around vagina, itching and bleeding after coitus
- Irritation in eye or eye infections
The symptoms are more pronounced in men and have a 25% more chance of being detected as compared to women. Some of the symptoms in men include:
- Severe pain while urinating
- Discharge of a white or cloudy liquid
- Inflammation of testicles
- Infection or irritation around eye (Resulting mainly from oral sex where the eye has accidentally made contact with the genitalia)
- Inflammation and itching around the tip of penis
The primary cause of this disease is a bacteria named chalmydia trachomatis which is transmitted primarily through sexual intercourse. The prevention of this disease altogether would be going against the human nature, i.e not engaging in any form of sexual intercourse since this disease spreads through sexual intercourse with multiple partners. Teenage girls with a developing cervix are the most susceptible to this infection. Moreover, homosexuals are also at a higher risk to contract this disease.
Garic is widely utilized in household cooking but most of its consumers are unaware of its remedial properties. Garlic is one of the most ancient and most reliable remedy against sexually transmitted diseases particularly chlamydia. It is rich in chemicals with antiviral and anti bacterial properties, thereby, assisting in warding off harmful viruses and bacteria. Intake of 1-2 cloves of garlic every day is both a preventive and remedial practice for chlamydia.

Olive leaves can be taken in a variety of ways including in the shape of a capsule, in powdered form, in the form of liquid such as grinding it into tea.
