Can Echinacea Cure Chlamydia?

Echinacea is a species of echinacea originating in North America and southern Canada. There are eight species and several varieties of Echinacea. At present, echinacea purea, echinacea augustifolia and echinacea pallida are the three main varieties for drug development. 

 

Many phytochemicals in Echinacea are actively involved: polysaccharides, flavonoids, derivatives of caffeic acid, refined oils, polyacetylene, alkylamides and alkaloids. It has been known that polysaccharides can stimulate the body's cells to fight infection. Echinacea can reduce the duration of colds or influenza.

If you have rheumatoid arthritis and are troubled by steroid-based anti-inflammatory drugs, Echinacea can be used as a mild analgesic to relieve symptoms without side effects.

 

 
Chlamydia is a group of very small and non-motile microorganisms that grow exclusively in cells. Current studies have pointed out that there are many kinds of chlamydia, but there are mainly several kinds of chlamydia which are pathogenic to human beings. One is chlamydia trachomatis, the others are chlamydia pneumoniae and chlamydia psittaci. 
 
Chlamydia pneumoniae is considered a common cause of pneumonia, bronchitis and other respiratory infections. Chlamydia psittaci can cause psittacosis, which is caused by human inhalation of dry dust particles from the excreta of infected birds. It often causes high fever, headache, muscle pain, chills and upper and lower respiratory tract discomfort. 
 
Some patients may suffer from encephalitis, myocarditis or thrombophlebitis. Chlamydia trachomatis is recognized as one of the sources of sexually transmitted diseases besides trachoma. Almost half of non-gonococcal urethritis is caused by chlamydia trachomatis infection. It can also cause urethral syndrome and venereal lymphogranuloma, female infertility, cervicitis, pelvic inflammation and so on. 
 
 
Neonatal infection through the birth canal can cause neonatal ophthalmitis or neonatal pneumonia. Chlamydia trachomatis can also cause adult pneumonia, which is harmful for pregnant women. It can cause ectopic pregnancy, abortion, stillbirth, chorioamnionitis, and premature birth, etc.
 
Chlamydia is a smaller organism than bacteria but larger than viruses. It is a specific intracellular parasitic pathogen similar to bacteria and viruses. It has no ability to synthesize high-energy compounds ATP and GTP, and must be provided by host cells. It becomes an energy parasite, mostly spherical, stacked, with cell walls and cell membranes. It belongs to prokaryotic cells, and generally parasitizes in animal cells.
 
Echinacea has immune stimulation, can reduce inflammation, help the human body battle against bacteria and viruses, and has a certain effect on the treatment of chlamydia. But because of the complexity of chlamydia infection and some serious complications, Echinacea can not cure chlamydia. In the treatment of chlamydia, Fuyan Pill can play the role of clear up bacteria, viruses and pathogens, and turn Chlamydia to negative.
