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.
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.
