Systemic chlamydia infection

Dear Stephen,
What are your recommendations for treating a respiratory chlamydia infection? I’ve heard these types of infections are common for those of us with lyme.

Stephen’s response:
Chlamydia can cause a number of conditions, depending on where it is in the body, but this protocol should take care of all of them, irrespective of their location.

Alchornea cordifolia or sida acuta (1/4-1/2 tsp 3x daily for 30 days) – these are systemic antibiotics for that organism.

Bidens pilosa (1/4-1/2 tsp 3x daily for 30 days) – fairly important – also systemic. (Giving Tree Botanicals is one source for wildcrafted Bidens tincture.)

Reishi – 45 drops 3x daily.

Licorice – 20 drops 3x daily.

Pleurisy root – 30 drops 3x daily.

The last three are all active for that organism and support immune function and also act as synergists for the other herbs.

For those with a sexually transmitted Chlamydia trachomatis infection, add in any of the berberine-containing plants – (1/4-1/2 tsp 3x daily for 30 days) – this is specific for that organism, it is not widely disseminated in the blood, but does have impact on several organ systems.

You can repeat the process again if it does not clear in 30 days but if you do, I would recommend taking only ¼ tsp of the berberine plant – you can then take the mix for up to six months.

You can mix all the tinctures together.

    Hi Stephen,
    thank you for posting this, I have to ask as a person who has tested positive with bloods and NAC self test for CPn, and I have MS,
    *”is there a different approach when the CPn is said to be a persistent infection?”,
    and in my case I believe that this is a long term infection and as a fifty three year old I wonder what load my body has.
    I am on day 72 of the David Wheldon ABx protocol and I am feeling allot of Herx or Vit D supplementing affecting cell apoptosis or porphyria or who knows.

    *Is there a recommendation for managing/minimising the side effects of the treatment?

    *Is there a different treatment time frame for the Herbal approach to CPn treatment when the infection is a persistent and long term one that involves MS ?

    Dear Stephen!
    My knee is swollen since a relationship to a boy friend I had four years ago and I have aches in cervical spine, but I don’t have cystitis
    or other troubles with alvus, nor skin problems or ophtalmitis. Chlamydia trachomatis is supposed and I have a positive Lttest and some other negativ Ctr. tests.
    I don’t have rheumatism faktor in the blood, I am not feeling tired.
    Should I take Luteolin and Cryptolepis, how much and how long? Thank you very much. Best regards, Isabella

    Hi Stephen, I have CPN in my brain giving me MS. I am 5 months into the Wheldon protocol of combined antibiotic protocol and am improving. However, I would much prefer to use a natural approach to completely eliminate the bacteria. What would you suggest please?
