Green Leafy Vegetables And Fruits
Leafy vegetables and fresh fruits are rich in fibre content, vitamins, phyto-nutrients etc. which improve the body’s overall immunity levels.

In addition to these natural remedies and other allopathic treatments, you must also maintain certain preventive measures if you are sexually active. These measures include using protection (condom) every time while having an intercourse. Also restricting yourself to one or limited sexual partners is important and reduces the chances of contracting Chlamydia. If the doctor has prescribed antibiotics for an existent Chlamydia infection, make sure you do not skip or discontinue the medication half-way.
