Gonorrhea herbal treatment

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (std). The bacteria that causes gonorrhea can infect the genital tract, mouth, or anus. You can get gonorrhea during vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected partner. A pregnant woman can pass it to her baby during childbirth. Gonorrhea is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease (STD) in Nigeria. In fact, in 1963, WHO found Lagos to have the highest gonorrhea rate in the world. Recent surveys report gonorrhea prevalence to be as high as 28.1%. Hence it is imperative that we adopt a healthy lifestyle that keeps us far from the gonorrhea infection. This can be in form of abstinence, use of protection during sex and high standards of hygiene.


Gonorrhea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
Gonorrhea can be passed from mother to baby during delivery.
Gonorrhea and chlamydia can be experienced simultaneously.
If untreated, gonorrhea can increase a person’s risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV.


Gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. However, men who do have symptoms, may have:

A burning sensation when urinating; a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis; painful or swollen testicles (although this is less common).
Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they are often mild and can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, even if they don’t have any symptoms.
Symptoms in women can include:

(1)Painful or burning sensation when urinating;
(2)Increased vaginal discharge;
(3)Vaginal bleeding between periods.
(4)Rectal infections may either cause no symptoms or cause symptoms in both men and women that may include:
Anal itching;
Painful bowel movements.


Listed below are natural herbs treatment for gonorrhea

(1)Mangosteen : this is also known as Garcinia Mangostana is a common herbal remedy for Gonorrhea. However, this Southeast Asian fruit is a rare find. With its white fleshy center, the fruit is known for its rich anti-bacterial properties. The recommended way to administer this is to extract the juice and consume it orally.

(2) Garlic
(3) Tea tree oil: This is effective for treating the infection in women.
(4) apple cider vinegar
(5) Guyabano fruit
(6) aloe vera
(7) echinacea



It is very important for us to live a healthy lifestyle. Hence it is necessary to adopt all measures aimed at safeguarding us from contracting diseases like the gonorrhea. Safe sex is applied when abstinence is not guaranteed. If anyone is infected with gonorrhea, kindly reach us at Olason Herbal Nig. Ltd, we have the most potent formulation to completely eradicate the disease in your body.

Ovarian cyst

The ovaries are located in the lower abdomen on both sides of the uterus. Women have two ovaries that produce eggs as well as the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Sometimes, a fluid-filled sac called a cyst will develop on one of the ovaries. Many women will develop at least one cyst during their lifetime. In most cases, cysts are painless and cause no symptoms. ovarian cysts are found during pregnancy via prenatal ultrasound screening. Majority of the ovarian cysts found in pregnancy are benign conditions and do not require surgical procedure except if it is malignant and likely to rupture or if the size of the cyst is dangerous to the pregnancy. It is important to check for presence of cysts in your ovaries benign or malignant. This article explain the complication of the ovarian cyst, causes and natural solution.


Ovarian cyst can affect women who experience their menstrual flow and also women who have passed menopause.
It can also be caused by endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome. Endometrium occurs when pieces of tissues found in the womb are found elsewhere like the Fallopian tube, bladder. Blood-filled cysts can sometimes form in this tissue.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that causes lots of small, harmless cysts to develop on your ovaries. The cysts are small egg follicles that don’t grow to ovulation.


The symptoms of ovarian cyst are viz
(1)Pain in the abdomen, pelvis, sometimes radiating to the low back, is the most common symptom
(2)Feeling of bloating or indigestion
(3)Increased abdominal girth
(4)Feeling an urge to have a bowel movement or having difficult, painful bowel movements
(5)Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
(6)Pain in the lower right or left quadrant of the abdomen on one side
(7)Nausea and vomiting

(10)feeling full after eating only a small amount (early satiety),
urinary urgency.


These herbs can completely treat ovarian cyst. They are
(1) maca (lepidium meyenii)
(2) eeru ( xylopia aethiolopica)

Adequate control of blood pressure

Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. Blood pressure can be measured by a sphygmomanometer or a blood pressure monitor. Blood pressure is assumed as normal if it’s value reads as 120 over 80 millimeter mercury (mmHg) . This means the systolic pressure value over the diastolic pressure value. Blood pressure reading is assumed as high if it’s value reads above 130 over 80 millimeter mercury ( American heart association AHA, November 2017). Unmanaged hypertension can lead to cardiac arrest or stroke. So, it is important for us to have an adequate control of  blood pressure by maintaining healthier diets, performing exercise or taking the right medications.


Acute causes of high blood pressure can originate from stress, come on its own or as a result of an underlying disease (for example kidney disease). Chronic kidney disease can cause hypertension because the kidney cannot filter fluid. Hence there is a retention of excess fluid in the body system. Also a family history of hypertension, uncontrollable stress and low potassium in diet can cause hypertension


listed below are the major symptoms of hypertension in humans viz:
(1) fatique or confusion
(2) severe headache
(3) vision problems
(4) chest pain
(5) irregular heartbeat
(6) difficult breathing
(7) Blood in urine
(8) feeling of a pounding sensation in your chest
(9) sweating
(10) anxiety
(11) sleeping problems

Sometimes some patients may not feel any of these symptoms of hypertension. While undetected it can cause severe damage to the cardiovascular system and internal organs like kidney. This is why it is called the “silent killer “. Hence it is imperative to check your blood pressure regularly.


the risk factors of hypertension are excess salt, excess body weight (obesity), age, smoking and alcohol.


The natural treatment of hypertension involves the following
(1) lifestyle modification : this involves weight loss, increased salt intake, exercise and eating healthy diets.
(2) medications : this can be drugs or natural herbs. Natural herbs are mostly preferred because it has minimal side effects, it does not cause any addictions and it is simple to use. Natural herbs in addition to controlling the H. B. P also help to burn excess fat and bad cholesterol thereby preventing the complications and improving normal blood circulation.  In addition most herbs if formulated by expert are like food because they are enrich with essential vitamins and elements necessary for holistic well-being of the body. 
When these herbs are taken in the right formulation and doses, they can effectively control the blood pressure .

Diabetes management

Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the body has high blood sugar either because the body cells do not respond to insulin or because insulin production is inadequate or both. Diabetes management is important to prevent possible complications.

In 2013 over 382 million people through out the world had diabetes (Journal of world diabetes control ,2013, vol 25, page 19). In 2015 , 415 million people throughout the world had diabetes ( Wikipedia, 2016).
The essence of blood sugar control cannot be overemphasized as it involves all processes aimed at getting the blood sugar level close to normal. It involves steps like lifestyle modification (exercise, feeding habits) and drug usage. The management of diabetes is therefore key in sustaining the health of the diabetic patient.

Below are the causes of diabetes viz
(1.) Type 1 diabetes: this is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. It present itself as insulin dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes or early onset diabetes
(2) Type 2 diabetes: this is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar. In this case, the body does not produce insulin or the cells in the body does not react to the insulin.
(3) Pre- diabetes: this is a condition in which the blood sugar is high but not enough to be type 2 diabetes .
(4) Gestational diabetes : This is a form of high blood sugar that affects the pregnant women. Women who have experienced this are at a higher risk of developing diabetes in future.
(5) Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults(LADA) : Here the type 1 diabetes mellitus develops in the adulthood stage of life.
(6). Alzheimer’s disease
(7) Genetic defects of beta cells function
(8) mitochondria DNA mutation
(9) Genetic defect in insulin
(10) infections like coxsachecvirus B
(11) drugs like statins, glucocorticoids, thyroid gland


people with high blood sugars experience the following
(1) frequent urination (polyurial)
(2) increased thirst (polydipsia)
(3) increased hunger (polyphagia)
(4)dry mouth
(5) unexplained weight loss / weight gain
(6) fatique
(7) blurr vision
(8) erectile dysfunction syndrome
(9) yeast infection
(10) numbness or tingling of the hand and feet


there are two major tests to confirm the level of sugar in our blood. These are
(1) Fasting blood sugar test (FBS test) :
Here, if the value is
(a) at least 126mg/dl (7mmol/l) it is considered as diabetic
(b) between 100mg/dl – 125.99 mg/ dl (5.6mmol/ L — 6.9mmol/L) it is considered as pre-diabetic
(c) is less than 100mg/ dl (5.6mmol/l) it is considered as normal.
(2) ALC test : in this test, if the value is
(a) at least 6.5 percent. It is considered Diabetic
(b) between 5.7 — 5.99 percent. It is considered as pre Diabetic
(c) less than 5.7 percent IS considered as normal


There are vast natural herbal treatment for diabetes. These herbs either increases the body cells sensitivity to insulin or reduce the blood glucose levels. But care should be taken to achieve the accurate concentration , combination and dosage of these herbs for complete and efficacious therapy.
Listed below are natural herbs for diabetes management viz
(1.) black seed (nigella saliva, black cummin)
(2) artemisia annua
(3) Indian gooseberry
(4) bitter melon (mormodica charantia)
(5.) moringa plant
(6) guava leaf tea

The management of diabetes is imperative and sensitive as it can either sustain or suppress the patients internal body system. Hence strict compliance to the dosage of anti diabetic medication is ultimate. Diabetes can result in impaired vision, fatigue, numbness or tingling of the hands and feet, cardiovascular disease , hearing loss , foot ulcers or neuropathy. Hence, at Olason Herbal Ltd we have processed and manufactured the most potent anti diabetic herbal preparation and supplement at an affordable price . This is our contribution to the society to achieve a future world of people living with normal blood sugar levels.

Pimples technically called Acne vulgaris is the most common type of acne cause mostly by five main factors: excess sebum (oil) , hormones, dead cells, Propionibacterium acnes ( a bacteria that causes acne lives on the skin) and inflammatory response. Acne emergies from a point which requires 2_3 weeks to take a defined form of pimples. This process happens deep under your skin. Pores are little holes present on your skin. These pores are actually air follicles containing very fine hair. Each hair follicle is connected to a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland produces an oily substance called sebum. Sebum helps in keeping the skin soft. This sebum reduces the surface of the skin through the hair follicle. The hair follicle is lined cells called keratinocytes. Now , during puberty, a hormone present both in males and females increases. This sebum hair and keratinocytes fill and plug the hair follicle. Plugging of the follicle is the earliest sign of acne . Because the follicle is plugged, sebum can not reach the surface of the skin . This means that the follicles is filled with oil ( sebum) and cells ( keratinocytes) . A mixture of both these causes Propionibacterium acnes on the skin to grow in the plugged follicle. This bacteria in the plugged follicle, induces the white blood cells to attack it. When the white blood cell attacks, they cause the skin to inflame (swell) which is referred to as pimples or acne. In due course of time, the wall of the hair follicle break down spilling everything that is sebum, dead cell and bacteria on the nearby skin.


Natural treatment involve prevention of the cause such as avoiding the use of body care products that contains excessive oil, eating healthy and natural foods especially rich fibre foods, avoiding pressing the pimples to prevent further spread. Many herbs has been scientifically proven to be effective for the treatment of pimples. Few examples are: tulsi leaves, neem leaves, castor oil, coconut oil, onion bulb, turmeric, etc. Most of the above herbs also contains antimicrobial properties .

E.coli Infection, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment.

E.coli Infection, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment.
E.coli bacterium

Escherichia coli (E.coli) is the bacterium that lives in the digestive tracts of humans and animals.

E. coli bacteria are of many types and most of them are harmless. But some few strains of E.coli can cause bloody diarrhea, urinary tract infections or other infections, severe anemia or kidney failure, which can lead to death.

Causes of E. coli Infection
E. coli infection is transmitted through direct contact with the infected feces, or stool, of humans or animals. This can happen when you drink contaminated water or eat food that has been contaminated by feces. E.coli infection can also spread from an infected person to person due to improper washing of hand after passing stool in the toilet.


Symptoms of intestinal infection due to E. coli can include:

abdominal cramping

sudden, severe watery diarrhea that may change to bloody stools


loss of appetite/nausea

vomiting (uncommon)



Symptoms of a severe E. coli infection may include:

bloody urine

decreased urine output
pale skin


Staphylococcus is one of the five most common causes of infections after injury or surgery. It is abbreviated to “S. aureus” or “Staph aureus” in medical literature. S. aureus was discovered in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1880 by the surgeon Sir Alexander Ogston in pus from surgical abscesses.
Transmission of Staphylococcus aureus
S. aureus may occur commonly in the environment. S. aureus is transmitted through air droplets or aerosol. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, he or she releases numerous small droplets of saliva that remain suspended in air. These contain the bacteria and can infect others.
Another common method of transmission is through direct contact such as sex, contaminated objects by the bacteria or by bites from infected persons or animals. Approximately 30% of healthy humans carry S. aureus in their nose, back of the throat and on their skin.
Clinical manifestation of infection
Around one third of healthy individuals carry this bacteria in their noses, pharynx and on their skin. In normal healthy and immunocompentent person, S. aureus colonization of the skin, intestinal tract, or nasopharynx does not lead to any symptoms or disease.
When S. aureus is isolated from an abscess or boil or other skin lesion, it is usually due to its secondary invasion of a wound rather than the primary cause of disease. S. aureus may similarly be isolated from abscesses, breast absecesses or mastitis, dermatitis or skin infections and genital tract infections.
S. aureus is considered the classic opportunist in this way since it takes advantage of broken skin or other entry sites to cause an infection.
What Does S. aureus Cause?
Of the variety of manifestations S. aureus may cause:
1. Minor skin infections, such as pimples, impetigo etc.
2. It may cause boils (furuncles), cellulitis folliculitis, carbuncles
3. It is the cause of scalded skin syndrome and abscesses
4. It may lead to lung infections or pneumonia
5. Brain infections or meningitis
6. Bone infections or osteomyelitis
7. Heart infections or endocarditis
8. Generalized life threatening blood infections or Toxic shock syndrome (TSS), bacteremia and septicaemia.
Staph infections can range from minor skin problems to endocarditis, a life-threatening infection of the inner lining of your heart (endocardium). As a result, signs and symptoms of staph infections vary widely, depending on the location and severity of the infection.
Skin infections
Skin infections caused by staph bacteria include:
Boils. The most common type of staph infection is the boil, a pocket of pus that develops in a hair follicle or oil gland. The skin over the infected area usually becomes red and swollen.

If a boil breaks open, it will probably drain pus. Boils occur most often under the arms or around the groin or buttocks.

Impetigo. This contagious, often painful rash can be caused by staph bacteria. Impetigo usually features large blisters that may ooze fluid and develop a honey-colored crust.
Cellulitis. Cellulitis — an infection of the deeper layers of skin .

Arteriosclerosis, Causes and Symptoms

Arteriosclerosis, Causes and Symptoms

Arteriosclerosis is one of the most common diseases of the blood vessels. It refers to a thickening of the walls of the arteries due to the presence of the calcium or lime.

Arteriosclerosis is usually preceded by Atherosclerosis, a kind of degeneration or softening of the inner lining of the blood vessels walls. The most risky place for such degeneration are the coronary vessels of the heart and the arteries leading to the brain. Arteriosclerosis result in the lost of elasticity of the blood vessels, with a narrowing of the smaller arteries, which interferes with the free circulation of the blood. These changes may gradually extend to capillaries and veins. It is more frequent in men than women especially in the younger age group. It can lead to heart attack.

Symptoms of Arteriosclerosis

Signs of inadequate supply of blood usually occurs first in the legs. There may be numbness and coldness in the feet and cramps and pains in the legs even after light exercise. If the coronary arteries are involved, the patient may have sharp pains, characteristics of angina pectoris. When arteries leading to the brain are involved , the vessel may burst, causing hemorrhage in the brain tissues. A cerebral vascular stroke, with partial or complete paralysis of one side of the body may result, if there is blockage with a blood clot. It may also lead to loss of memory and a confused state of mind in elderly people. If arteries leading to the kidneys are involved, the patient may suffer from high blood pressure and kidney disorders.

Causes of Arteriosclerosis

Excessive intake of white sugar, refined foods and high fat diet rich in cholesterol. High blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, rheumatism, Brights disease, malaria, syphilis, emotional stress and sedentary lifestyle.


Infertility is the failure to achieve conception by couples who have not used contraceptives for at least 1 year.
Inability to conceive after at least a year of regular sexual intercourse without the use of contraceptives, can be due to causes that lie either in the man or the woman or both. Identification of the underlying causation is the key to successful treatment, but is extremely difficult. It often occurs in women who have a history of conceiving and then losing the baby before the foetus is old enough to support itself outside the womb. Infertility can be either temporary or, in a small percentage of cases, permanent.
Male Infertility
The commonest cause in men is no sperm or a low sperm count. This may be caused by numerous factors including an infection after puberty which was accompanied by a high fever, unrepaired undescended testicles, taking certain medications, trauma to the testicles, or exposure to large amounts of X-ray. For the most part however, a low sperm count tends to be related to more easily reversible conditions. A long illness or a chronic infection may lower general health, as could poor diet, strenuous physical exercise, lack of exercise, too much smoking and drinking, over-weight, overwork, tension and fatigue. A common reason for a low sperm count is abnormal temperature regulation in the testicles, which function at a temperature slightly lower than the rest of the body.
Low sperm motility. This makes them unable to travel from the vagina, through the fallopian tubes to fertilize the ovum. This tends to be related to some of the above factors, and may also be due to enlargement of the prostate gland, as well as an imbalance of male hormones in the body. The vessels along which the sperm travel in men could be blocked by an inflammatory or infectious process or by varicosity in the area.
Female Infertility
A wide variety of factors can be at work here. One may be in play or a complex of interrelated factors may be at work. Common causes include:
Endocrine problems. Difficulties of the pituitary, thyroid or adrenal glands, which together regulate the menstrual cycle, may cause a failure of ovulation. To establish whether you are ovulating at regular intervals you can keep a record of your body temperature using a chart and a sensitive thermometer. Before ovulation, when there is normal secretion of oestrogen, the basic temperature on waking will be a little below normal, 97 or 97.8  0F, 36 0C. After ovulation it should rise by half or one degree and stays the same for the next two weeks.
Fallopian Tube problems. They could be blocked, sometimes because of an inherited difficulty, or because of an infection of the womb or other diseases such as salpingitis (inflammation of the fallopian tubes), endometriosis, and TB; these may cause thickening of the tubes which either narrow or completely block the passages, or they can cause the tubes, uterus and ovaries to become matted together by adhesions, or in the case of endometriosis, by growths of tissue from the uterus.
Prolapse & Fibroids. There could be malposition of the uterus or fibroids which can lead to sterility. The latter can also cause miscarriage early on, or a difficult labor. It is best to sort out this problem before conceiving. Their origin is largely related to a hormonal imbalance with an excess of oestrogen.
Cervical problems. The cervix can also be affected adversely and cause sterility. Infection or excess mucus from inflammation can expel the sperm, or polyps may prevent the sperm from entering the uterus.
Non-physical causes. In many women there are absolutely no physical problems to be found. There may be a slight hormonal imbalance or a poor state of health through faulty diet and fatigue. In perhaps a quarter of all infertile women it is emotional problems which are to blame.
There are in addition some causes of infertility which are shared by both the man and the woman. There can be antibodies to the sperm in either partner which can destroy the sperm. Occasionally there can be lack of knowledge about fertile times in a cycle.
There is much that herbs can contribute to supporting fertility, but there is no `wonder cure’. The suggestions given here will help, but the practitioner is encouraged to be creative and intuitive in remedy selection. Each individual woman and man will have plants that suit them best. Identifying them is part of the skill of the good herbalist.
Hormonal imbalance
Hormonal problems, in either partner, are readily treated with herbs. Whilst not containing hormones themselves, some herbs stimulate the glands concerned, bringing about production of the right proportions of hormones and in their right sequence in the menstrual cycle to promote conception.
Where illness, malnourishment, fatigue, and conditions such as anaemia, anorexia and kidney problems have lowered vitality and produced a state of debility which has affected fertility, there are many herbs which can help to build up the strength of the generative organs. Bitters, tonics and adaptogens are actions to consider. The specifics will depend upon the individual concerned, but application of the model for remedy selection will usually clarify this.
Emotional problems
Where emotional problems cause tension and anxiety, or when just wanting to conceive is producing psychological blockages to conception, herbal remedies may well be helpful. Perhaps some of the success of herbal remedies for infertility is related to the fact that both partners often feel they can relax a bit now that they have sought help and found a herbal remedy they feel they can rely on.
Malposition of the uterus
There are no herbal remedies for infertility caused by this problem. It might be advisable for structural work to be done. Appropriately trained gynecologist, osteopaths or chiropractors will be able to give gynecologic manipulation along with both pelvic exercises and breathing exercises that will enhance the circulation and improve the function of the reproductive organs.
To all couples trying to overcome the challenges of infertility the role of natural remedy is very crucial this is because infertility treatment require a holistic approach. As clearly written above the causes of infertility varied from both men and woman and to overcome the situation each individual needed to be treated uniquely depending on the the cause of the the problem.
