Natural (Holistic) STD Treatment
Holistic health supplements are commonly taken to minimize or alleviate STD symptoms and recurrences, but not all supplements work for all people, and The STI Project encourages everyone to do their own research as well as consulting with your physician before deciding to take an over-the-counter supplement.
