Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

What are chlamydia antibodies? Does it mean a person is currently infected?

Yes

Antibody
Chlamydia is a bacteria, so antibody testing does not apply. I suspect you are referring to DNA testing, which is more reliable than direct cultures and is commonly done off of a pap smear sample. If this is positive you are infected and need to be treated.

Does strong and weak immune system and antibodies can show a different result for the HSV 1&2 and Chlamydia? girl (+) HSV2 IgG & Chlmdia IgG, boy (-)

Limited usefulness

Antibody
Just because someone has antibodies doesn't make them contagious or even mean that they have lesions. Antibodies stay around after recovery. And if the lovers are using barrier protection, he probably won't catch her herpes simplex even if she does have infectious lesions.

How do integrative doctors treat chlamydia infections?

Umm

Open-uri20120309-10112-vygkan
Hopefully appropriately, using evidence based medicine and ethics. Just what is an "integrative doctor," anyway? Is that code for doesn't prescribe pharmaceuticals? Or code for not a real doctor but is trying hard? It should mean a licensed physician who evaluates every aspect of a patient when they practice their craft.
