Syphilis- Runyankole (kaberebegye) or kabotoongo-Luganda]

Syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium Troponema pallidum, is quite common in both men and women.

How do people get syphilis?

Syphilis is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with syphilis sores. Sores occur mainly on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. Sores also can occur on the lips and in the mouth. Syphilis can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sexual contact. Pregnant women with the disease can pass it to their unborn children.

How quickly do symptoms appear after infection?

The average time between infection with syphilis and appearance of the first symptom is 21 days, but it can range from 10 to 90 days.

How does syphilis affect a pregnant woman and her baby?

A pregnant woman with syphilis can pass the disease to her unborn baby. Babies born with syphilis can have many health problems. This may lead to low birth weight, premature delivery or even having a stillbirth (a baby born dead). To protect their babies, pregnant women should be tested for syphilis regularly during the pregnancy and at delivery and receive immediate treatment, if positive.

An infected baby may be born without signs or symptoms of disease. However, if not treated immediately, the baby may develop serious problems within a few weeks. Untreated babies can have many health problems (such as cataracts, deafness, or seizures), and they can die.

Symptoms include the formation of painless ulcerations in the primary stage of the disease that are firm, round, and small. If this is not treated properly, it may lead to a secondary stage which results in sores or rashes externally on the genitals and in the mouth.

Symptoms such as fever, sore throat, swollen lymph glands, patchy hair loss, headaches, weight loss, and fatigue are characteristic of this disease. Latent syphilis occurs when the disease spreads to the internal organs and interferes with the functioning of the organ systems.

Proficient GoodRich Muteguya‘s research says Syphilis antibiotic treatment is a trusted conventional treatment method. This syphilis treatment comes after a physical examination and a blood test. Penicillin and related antibiotics may be given for treatment, but some supplements and alternative therapies may aid in the treatment. These include:

1) Prodophilus formula supplements good bacteria in the intestines while undergoing antibiotic therapy, especially during latent syphilis treatment.

2) Garlic increases the body’s immunity and acts as a natural antibiotic.

3) Other nutritional supplements that should be included in a diet regime for syphilis treatment are vitamin B complex, vitamin C, free form amino acid complex, vitamin K, co-enzyme complex, and zinc.

4) Acupuncture improves the immune function and reduces stress on the body. It prevents recurrence and helps heal latent syphilis.

5) Acupressure treatments are those that help in conjunction with acupuncture by boosting the immune system.

6) Asecode herbal therapy involves the use of natural herbs like Rosemary, fennel, mweramannyo, Entale yeddungu, Ejjirikiti, Omugavu depending on the specific symptoms.


Syphilis is a serious health problem, and if it is not treated in a timely manner, it may progress over a period of several years. In its final stage, syphilis can cause brain damage, hearing loss, heart disease and blindness, although this disease may remain dormant for several decades. Herbs, though potentially helpful in treating this condition, should be used in conjunction with other therapies that have proved effective and only under the supervision of a qualified health-care provider.
