Gonorrhea

Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj D.H.M.S  •  Dr. Puja Bhadel Bhardwaj  M.D.

  


Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Gonorrhea is caused by  Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in the warm, moist areas of the reproductive tract, including the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes in women, and in the urethra in women and men. 

 

 

The bacterium can also grow in the mouth, throat, eyes, and anus.

 

 


Gonorrhea is spread through contact with genitalia, mouth, or anus. Gonorrhea can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery.

 


Gonorrhea symptoms can include:-

Women
-A change in vaginal discharge; it may appear in abundance, change to a yellow or greenish colour, and develop a strong smell.
-A burning sensation or pain whilst passing urine.
-Irritation and/or discharge from the anus.

 


Men
-A white or yellow discharge from the penis.
-A burning sensation or pain whilst passing urine.
-Irritation and/or discharge from the anus.



Diagnosis:-
Traditionally, gonorrhea was diagnosed with gram stain and culture; however, newer polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based testing methods are becoming more common

 

Treatment:-
Allopathic treatments for Gonorrhea include penicillin, tetracycline and sulfa drugs.Although medication will stop the infection, it will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease. People who have had gonorrhea and have been treated can get the disease again as drug-resistant strains of gonorrhea are increasing. They are merely a way of suppressing symptoms. Now recommends dual therapy (i.e. using two drugs) for the treatment of gonorrhea. 

Homoeopathic treatments can include alternatives to help the mucous membranes, immune stimulants, urinary tract antiseptics, anti-inflammatory medicines and urinary tract heat-clearing medicines


Homoeopathy not only relieves gonorrhea symptoms, but also cures them, without any persistent usage of drugs or any side-effects. Homeopathic remedies work on a person’s constitution which is a combination of mind, emotions and body that is the characteristics of a person as well as the physique. 

 

 

The remedies will help treat physical symptoms and also stabilize psychological or emotional stress and anxieties related to past or current sexual abuse and perverted sexual behaviors which may be leading them towards overindulgence in sex. Homeopathic treatment elevates resistance or immunity and diminishes the chance of getting recurrent infections like Herpes. The basis of Homeopathy is based on the principle of similars that is “LIKE CURES LIKE”, with emphasis that a microdose of a substance will heal symptoms by stimulating a person’s immune system that this substance would be capable of causing in large doses. Hence, Homeopathic constitutional treatment is ideal and has shown an overwhelming positive response in treating gonorrhea.
