Chlamydia pneumoniae- Natural antibiotic= Mentha Arvensis?

Postby Rayboy » Tue Dec 18, 2012 8:10 am

I just came accross this research article published Nov. 2011:
http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jf2032473

It says that Mentha Arvensis (Menthol) significantly reduced Chlamydia pneumoniae bacterial load in mice. I guess this would be a natural alternative to synthetic antibiotics, no? (except that it would have no negative side effect, of course)

It would be if it worked against a chronic C pneumoniae infection and not just an acute one. It might say in the full text of the paper, if someone has access to it, but it was published in an agricultural journal, not a medical one.
