Be Warned About Preparations That Claim To Fix Gonorrhea
To self meditate for suspected gonorrhea symptoms is like using a pen-knife to operate on yourself for appendicitis.
Yesterday I wrote an article about a product which claimed to fix all types of hernias. (read my hub here: Look Out For Medicine That Claims To Fix All Types Of Hernias) To my horror, subsequently, I came across another advertising website by the same provider promoting a medicine that claimed to cure gonorrhea. The rest of the website was identical to the site I wrote about. The template is the same. The disclaimer that children should not take it is the same. The dosage and concentration of the homeopathic medicine to be taken is also the same. The only difference is that this time the condition in question is gonorrhea. Even the personal testimonials posted were identical. While leaving a hernia untreated is dangerous, having gonorrhea symptoms relieved but the condition not addressed is disastrous. From the medical point of view, many preparations can help control symptoms of gonorrhea via various mechanisms. Nonetheless, getting rid of the infection is a different ball game all together. Let me emphasize that there is no scientific proof that preparations other than antibiotics can get rid of gonorrhea. Besides, there are now many resistant strains of gonorrhea to various antibiotics. Sensitivity testing is vital for successful treatment outcome. I would also warn readers regarding the fact that gonorrhea often co-exists with other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including, Genital Herpes, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis and even HIV infection. To self meditate for suspected gonorrhea symptoms is like using a pen-knife to operate on yourself for appendicitis. It sounds glamorous and theoretically possible. However, messy outcome is certain. In summary, “don’t try this at home.”
