Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease, or STD. It receives its name from the bacterium that causes it—Gonococcus neisseria. Approximately 400,000 cases of gonorrhea occur in the United States each year. Of all of the STDs that U.S. physicians are required by law to report to public health officials, gonorrhea is the most common. It is transmitted through intimate sexual contact and afflicts both men and women.
In women, gonorrhea can infect the vagina, cervix, urethra, rectum, and throat, and can also spread to the uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes, where it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). In men, gonorrhea infects the penis, epididymis, the rectum, and the throat.
Note: Gonorrhea in both men and women should be treated immediately. Because of the many variables and potential problems associated with any type of STD, a trained health professional should be consulted if infection is suspected. In the case of any STD, it is important to determine if antibiotics or other pharmaceutical drugs are necessary or if natural remedies alone will be effective.
Caution: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can be severe and even life-threatening. Therefore, proper diagnosis and medical care are essential.
Gonorrhea can cause redness and swelling in the affected areas of the body. In men, it can produce painful urination and pus-like discharge from the penis, and cause frequent and urgent urination. If the gonorrhea bacterium escapes from its original site of infection and enters the bloodstream, complications such as fever, skin rash, or joint pain can occur. In women, these symptoms, as well as painful urination and pus-like discharge from the vagina, are the primary symptoms produced by gonorrhea. Nearly all men experience symptoms of gonorrhea if they are infected, while only 50 to 75 per cent of women do.
Gonorrhea is caused by an infection of Gonococcus neisseria that can occur during unprotected sex.
During the initial, acute phase, as well as periods of severe pain, a light diet consisting primarily of fresh organic fruits and vegetables is recommended. In addition, drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Follow this diet this for at least three to five days. Afterwards, emphasize fresh, organic foods, with plenty of fruits and vegetables, complex carbohydrates, and free-range, organic meats and poultry, as well as wild caught fish that are rich in essential fatty acids, such as sardines and salmon. Also be sure to minimize your alcohol intake to no more than one glass of red wine or beer per day.
Avoid all commercial and processed foods, as well as caffeine, salt, unhealthy fats, sugars, artificial sweeteners and preservatives, food dyes, milk and dairy products, as well as wheat and wheat products.
In addition, undergo testing for potential food allergies and sensitivities and avoid those foods to which you test positive. Consider a rotation diet or elimination diet in order to further reduce the likelihood of food allergies.
Nutrition and diet are key players in the healing and elimination of imbalance and disease. For a complete, nutrition packed, whole foods eating plan, read the Whole Foods Diet. In many cases, a raw food eating plan can be extremely beneficial. To learn more, read Raw Food Diet. You can print out these full articles for easy reference.
Fasting: A three-day water fast can help to relieve pain caused by gonorrhea while at the same time boost immune function. Be sure the water you drink is pure and filtered. If you are unable to tolerate a water fast, fasting on fresh squeezed, organic fruit and vegetable juices is a healthy alternative.
