Diseases Caused by Neisseria Gonorrhoeae And Ayurvedic Treatment
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a bacterial pathogen responsible for gonorrhea and various sequelae that tend to occur when asymptomatic infection ascends within the genital tract or disseminates to distal tissues. Global rates of gonorrhea continue to rise, facilitated by the emergence of broad-spectrum antibiotic resistance that has recently afforded the bacteria ‘superbug’ status. N. gonorrhoeae is exquisitely adapted to life in humans, having evolved novel strategies to succeed in their restricted mucosal niche.
Gonococci also represent a paradigm for bacterial immune evasion due to its genetically plastic lifestyle and ability to directly suppress otherwise protective adaptive responses, allowing the bacteria to persist within an infected individual and re-infect individuals who have had prior infection. So Ayurveda effectively manages this with the help of Ayurvedic Products. Some profitable and effective herbal remedies for preventing and treating Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are given by Planet Ayurveda.
Introduction to Neisseria gonorrhoeae(النيسرية البنية)
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a species of gram-negative diplomacy bacteria, also known as gonococcus or gonococci. It causes gonorrhea which is a sexually transmitted genitourinary infection. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that affects the rectum, urethra, or throat. It also causes the other gonococcal disease, like septic arthritis, gonococcemia, and gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. It is estimated that in the United States, 820,000, new Neisseria Gonorrhea infections occur every year. Gonorrhea is the 2nd most commonly stated communicable disease. (1)
These bacteria cause infection of the genitals, eyes, and throat. Asymptomatic or subclinical infection is common in females and males. If the infection gets untreated it may spread to the rest of the body then it is known as a disseminated gonorrhea infection. It especially affects the joints called septic arthritis. Untreated infections in females may cause pelvic inflammatory conditions and possibly may results in infertility due to the presence of scarring.
Transmission of Neisseria gonorrhoeae
N. gonorrhoeae may be transmitted through oral, vaginal, or anal sex. In adults, it is usually due to sexual transmission. In newborns, it can be transmitted while passing through the birth canal if the mother has an untreated genital infection. That is why all pregnant women should be examined for gonorrhea infection.
