Gonorrhea is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases caused by neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. This infection affects both men and women in different ways, and while the symptoms of gonorrhea are not that extreme (burning sensation when urinating for men, and pelvic pain and vaginal discharge for roughly for female), if the condition is left untreated, it can become more serious. It can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, or more serious inflammatory infections throughout the body. Also, when left untreated, the bacterium can easily spread to other sexual partners. Some of the home remedies for gonorrhea are discussed below.

  1. Zinc

Zinc can increase the number of antibodies and white blood cells, while also directly affecting the bacterial infection of gonorrhea. You can find zinc in a diverse number of mineral-heavy foods, including dark chocolate, oysters, and sesame seeds.

  1. Garlic

You can significantly boost the strength of your immune system and treat gonorrhea effectively by either consuming garlic normally or treating yourself with garlic extract, or even garlic in supplemental form. Garlic, and it's important active ingredient, allicin, is another popular home remedy for gonorrhea. This is one of the most easily accessible and popular antibacterial foods that you can add to your diet, and it also happens to be versatile in culinary preparations.


  1. Vitamin C

High concentrations of vitamin C can be found in various fruits and vegetables, particularly spinach, broccoli, and citrus fruits. Vitamin C, commonly known as ascorbic acid, also acts as an antioxidant and can help to reduce the inflammation and discomfort caused by the condition.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

This versatile health tonic, particularly the vinegar part of the mixture, is a potent antimicrobial and antibacterial substance, so it can be used to directly treat gonorrhea. Whether consumed internally or even applied topically (apple cider vinegar in a bath or on a tampon), this substance can quickly eliminate the bacterial infection and prevent it from spreading. It can also help with reducing inflammation and pain.

  1. Aloe Vera

One particular species of aloe vera, barbadensis millais be used for gonorrhea, as this herbal remedy is successful in removing bacterial infections and lowering inflammation.

  1. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has been proven to be a powerful antibacterial substance that can effectively neutralize the gonorrhea bacteria, while also providing a variety of other benefits to the body. Similar to apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil can be placed directly on a tampon to directly attack the bacteria for females suffering from gonorrhea.

  1. Avoid Sexual Intercourse

When suffering from gonorrhea, the inflammation and pain can make sex quite unpleasant, and can even worsen the condition. Furthermore, if you are with a new partner, you risk spreading the disease to them, and if you and your partner are both suffering from the condition, you are perpetuating the illness and making it more difficult for both of your bodies to handle and cure the condition.

  1. Exercise

By promoting blood flow, repair, and a high metabolism, exercise boosts your immune system to more effectively eliminate bacterial infections like gonorrhea.

  1. Mangosteen

The high concentration of vitamin C and large variety of antioxidants in mangosteen makes this a powerful dietary defender against all bacterial infections, and can quickly cure you of gonorrhea if consumed regularly, and combined with other alternative or formal gonorrhea treatments.

  1. Echinacea

The antibacterial property of echinacea controls not only the symptoms of gonorrhea but also eliminates the root bacteria and protects the body from further infection.

Although the symptoms are not always severe, and the formal treatment is not always effective (because of the antibiotic resistant strains of gonorrhea), it is important to consult a doctor before embarking on any alternative or herbal remedy treatments for a sexually transmitted disease. The above remedies are suggestions for complementary treatments and home-based strategies, but should not fully replace antibiotic treatment, or at least medical consultation.
