HIV and AIDS Natural Treatments

Jan 26, 2017

According to research estimates, 35.3 million people were living with aids in the year 2012 alone. While that number has likely changed, the reality is that HIV is a worldwide health problem that requires pervasive treatment. While we don’t have a newfangled herbal cure-all for you, we do have a few remedy suggestions, including apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and bloodroot, that just may help you treat your infection and all but eliminate it naturally.

What Is HIV?

HIV is a term used for the condition human immunodeficiency virus. This virus infects the cells of the immune system and then proceeds to destroy them and impair their overall function. HIV is considered a progressing disease as it often manifests initially with limited signs and symptoms and then further develops to the state of “immune deficiency” for which the condition received its name.

In terms of identifying “deficiency,” the immune system is considered deficient when it reaches a state from which it no longer fulfills its role in fighting infection and disease. At this point, your body is particularly susceptible to “opportunistic infections” that take advantage of a weakened immune system.

Linked to HIV is a condition known as AIDS. AIDS or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is a term used to identify and describe the most advanced stages of HIV infection.

Is There a Cure for AIDS?

While no outright cure has been identified for HIV or AIDS, several treatment options are available. We’ve put together a collection of natural remedies for HIV that have been shown to have a positive effect on the condition. Apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and bloodroot are among the most effective treatment options.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Treating HIV with apple cider vinegar functions to balance the pH system in the body, which in turn helps eradicate infection. ACV also contains a variety of essential nutrients that support immune health and restoration. We suggest drinking 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar diluted in water every day.

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an effective anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. Used daily, the oil helps eliminate the underlying infection and supports overall immune health.

3. Bloodroot

Bloodroot is an herbal treatment that supports energy and treats infection. Taken as a daily supplement, bloodroot helps eliminate the symptoms and underlying cause of the condition.

If you are tired of incomplete medical treatment for HIV, give one of these natural options a try, or use one of our many other reader contributed suggestions below.

Apple Cider Vinegar

"????? Robin, could you please state what sort of tests were done to prove that the ACV cures the infection... Drink 1/3 or 1 to 3 cups of acv a day seems intolerable...did you actually do this?...I am thinking that it would get rid of the virus by killing the host. :)

Infection even from a cut on the hand is not would have to have direct content with infected fluid.

Robin, define "cure hiv". Do you mean a negative antibody test? Zero viral load? You really need to give more details before you expect people to just simply drink this excessive amount of vinegar, sounds suspicious.

I agree that this one did sound suspicious and very harsh! After researching the benefits of apple cider vinegar, I decided to try it. It took me a full 24 hours to complete because I diluted it with water and drank it in three sessions. The original poster didn't say if this regime needs to be repeated or not. I'll let you know my outcome.

I have been HIV positive for three years now. The doctors have been pushing me to start anti-viral drug therapy. I have resisted since my T-cells have remained over 700 and viral around 60,000. I have never felt healthier. I work out 6 days a week, grow my own organic veggies, sleep 8 hours a night, do not smoke or do drugs, and drink very little booze. With the help of internet research, I drink two raw organic apple cider vinegar drinks a day, take Selenium, alot of mult-vitamins/minerals and drink only distilled water. This has worked for me, perhaps this will help some of you.

I too have been positive for 3 years... Back when I first tested positive the docs wanted me to start on the meds urgently, however I didn't see the point in taking extremely toxic medication (according to their own manufacturers for the rest of my life when I felt perfectly healthy. Back then my CD4 was around 350, and VL was 70000. It's been years and I have been fine! I haven't checked my numbers since then, I don't know what they are and I don't care. I just want to be clinically healthy, that's all I care for. And tips here on EC have been GREAT! I have been sick with the flu a few times, and used EC remedies with great success.

People should urgently watch this documentary:

I am dying from AIDS. I was healthy with it since 1993. Then 4 months ago I began to drink lemon juice. This activated the virus mycoplasma and my skin began to turn purple. You can live with hiv for a long time if you stay away from citric acid, this is how it grows.

All these cures are toxic and useless.

Eat chicken soup and stay away from citrus and sugar fruit and you will be healthy. But it is the lemon juice that caused my body to break down. I would stay away from Vitamin C also, acidifies the body, no matter what they say. I am living proof.

Replied by Kathy

I am sorry that you are in such bad shape, and I am not trying to argue with you, but how long have you been off the lemon juice (citric acid) and Vitamin C, because skin turning purple is symptomatic of scurvy. Viruses are notorious for depleting the body of Vitamin C at an astoundingly rapid rate, and when people get ebola virus, for instance, what they really die of is hemmorage brought on by rapid Vitamin C depletion, also known as fulminating scurvy.

p.s. Vitamin C should always be taken in a buffered form (sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, etc.)

I also have a question for you: can you tell us just what it is about citric acid that causes the problem, and why did you start using large amounts of lemon juice?

p.p.s. Large amounts of Vitamin C, taken without also increasing the amounts of bioflavanoids in your diet, can cause problems because of bioflavanoid depletion.

No other animals eat lemons. Lemon juice kills plants, frogs, and bugs.

They say avoid citrus for herpes and mumps. The Eskimo Diet no one got scurvy, you can get vitamin c through vegetables. They tell Africans with hiv to eat lemons and they are dying.

All the drug addicts used lemon to shoot their heroin and died of fungal infections.

Fungus loves lemon and the citrus peels.

I drank 4 glasses of lemon water for 2 weeks. I lost my saliva and my glands swelled, my skin looks diseased.

The only way I get saliva is sea salt water. Vinegar will also destroy your body or fermentation. Baking Soda or Borax is poison, too caustic.

In chinese medicine citrus is considered too yin, causing spleen deficiency.

There is no cure for AIDS just don't eat citric acid and you won't need to worry. I remember having cat scratch fever as a child, I drank orange juice and it developed into a tumor. Growing up in Florida, everyone had skin cancer from two things, citrus and sun. Citrus demineralizes and destroys. You don't need to believe me, but I know.

Its not a matter of believing or not believing you...nor do I have AIDS...I was just wondering about what the science would be. Italians eat alot of citrus peels, and they have one of the lowest rates of skin cancer in the world, even though they live in a very sunny climate. But unless its organic, citrus fruits have high levels of pesticides, which bind to the oils in the citrus peels, which in turn are incorporated into your cellular membranes. In particular, non-organic citrus peel can contain high levels of pesticides that act as cholerestinase inhibitors. I can see how THAT would cause cancer, but not how citrus peels per sey are carcinogenic. I am very sorry that you are in such poor health, and so unhappy, though. Please do accept my sympathy for your plight.

Lemon brings toxins out in the organs and skin. With hiv and mycoplasma you are unable to rid your body of these toxins causing acidemia and a viral attack on the organs. It is better to keep the hiv mycoplasma calm.

Hi Chantelle. Have you thought about taking a look at REMEDIES page here and checking out the MINI BEET PROTOCAL? This is a cleanser for the liver and kidneys, and if you can cleanse the body,sometimes it will start to heal or at least your symptoms might get better.... Robert, says this cures a host of ailments including myco-plasma! It would diffently be worth looking into.Also research here on ways to build your immune system...Look on the ailments page under aids, immune disorders and any other things that deal with the immune system...

Chantelle, you sound very sick and you may want to ask TED, that is on here to give you some recommendations and a protocal to follow! Getting your PH to alkaline, I am sure will help, because an alkaline body can't get sick or stay sick.

There is alot of info on here, so check it out! And like I said you may want to ask TED some of your questions...I think this might be the most important thing for you to do ( ASK TED )and read what he has already posted on here.

Oh by the way, I believe ,it was JOYCE from Joelton TN.( WHO HAS ALOT OF KNOWLEDGE AS WELL ) I was going to tell you the story about one of her post on here, but I have read so much on here, I could not remember it exactly... But anyway I believe she recommend high doses of L-Lysine...

I truly believe the hiv virus is only antibodies to fungal mechanisms such as Candida. And it is Candida that kills people not a virus. Candida also causes cancer. It was antibiotics high fruit while eating high fat hiv drugs progestin that has given me AIDS. I find green leafy vegetables and no oils no fats no vinegar. Just greens and I was wrong about citric acid.It was fat trapping the blood sugar that makes the fungus take over. GO VEGAN until you get better. Lemons are too mutated now but grapefruit pith saves lives. Coconut oil causes dampness. Extreme dampness is AIDS CANCER CANDIDA in chinese medicine. No oil no vinegar, I know from experience and bone pain.

Hi Chantelle,

I am a newly HIV male, and I was wondering why you say that Borax is caustic? In fact, I just started today to begin using borax to wash dishes in and myself! I have been reading Dr Hulda Clark's book on the cure for HIv/AIDS, and she is very definite about throwing out all detergents etc and using only BORAX to wash yourself with, your hands, your floors etc. As the kind of old soap used by pioneers, it apparently leaves no chemical residue, unlike store-bought detergents and even "health-food store" products, which all usually contain traces of benzene/parabens and so on.It is the benzene in our bodies, she claims, which feed the parasites, which in turn feed the virus as well as cancers and so on. I thank you in advance for your kind insights. Kindly, Rupert.

Hi Chantelle,

I'm SO glad you have mentioned micoplasma! Though that is a theory that is not widely accepted I believe it to be one of may avenues that lead to AIDS and AIDS like symptoms. There are natural products that reduce and eliminate hard to kill mycoplasma. Please do a in-depth search on Garth L. Nicolson, Ph.D., and his work regarding HIV, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Gulf War syndrome caused by micoplasma.

He goes into depth on how to eliminate micoplasma with antibiotics and Lipid replacement therapy. He details how he approached CFS and GWS but not HIV and I thing HIV would simply be too controversial to mention as he is and has been contracted by government agencies because of his specialty in microbiology.

There are herbs that kill micoplasma as well. Olive Leafe, Black Walnut (from the green Hull)

Another theory not widely known is that common human parasites that can act like mini virus factories spitting out virus copies too. Reduce parasites helps lower viral levers according to Dr Hulda Clark.

Black Walnut, Wormwood and Red clove for 21 days (2 capsules 3 times a day) and then the same regimen once a week for matainance. Colloidal siver also kills micoplasma. Also research Selenium. I reccamend the natural selenium over the synthetic kind IF you have no issues with yeast.

I hope you are well!

I agree with Chantelle. Avoid any acid and sugar at all costs. There's a friend of mine who had stomach and colon cancer. He kept taking the Vitamin C regularly and religiously. The cancer ate him alive until he passed away. Cancer loves high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and acids in any form, cancer shrinks by half when eliminating HFCS. The best joke I've heard all day is the mention of scurvy.

Greetings. I am HIV+ and was diagnosed in 1996. The past 4 months I have been off of my HIV meds and I am healthy. I read a recent article about the effectivness of lectin proteins in blocking HIV from infecting T-Lymphocyte cells. Lectins are found in many foods, but are especially high in grains, legumes, potatoes and bananas. Recent discoveries have found that a lectin in bananas termed "BanLec" was very effective in blocking HIV from infecting T-Cells. The way it works is, lectins attach themselves to carbohydrate or sugar containing molecules or anything that contains a sugar property in your blood. HIV has a glycoprotein shell, or sugar coat and attach's to them as well. When the lectins attach to the virus, they block it's receptors from attaching to and infecting T-Cells. So I have been eating plenty of whole wheat bread, beans, bananas and potatoes and so far I have been quite well. When I eat wheat bread, I first mince an entire bulb of raw garlic and then sprinkle it on the bread after putting some butter spread on it. Raw garlic is also powerful against HIV and has been proven to kill HIV in vitro. There are several HIV/Lectin related studies from medical journals you can read online. A certain pharmaceutical is currently looking into making HIV meds from BanLec. I hope that I have been helpful.

God Bless, Sean. :o)

Hi Sean,

Thanks for the sharing, I have tested myself positive on home test kits, finger pricks and also mouth swabs. From the technology they have now, I am sure I am positive.

I have never read up so much articles online in my entire life upon tested positive. And came to realisation that HAART is very toxic, it might kill you before AIDS do.

So being so new (should have contracted in May 2014). I have also kept high hopes in natural remedies. I have read a lot about Cysteine, Selenium, Glutamine and Tryptophan. Also others. So I have been eating lots of raw garlic and raw spinach now. And thanks for the additional info of Banana being able to block off hiv; although I have been eating because of reportedly high tryptophan content in it.

With that said. Glad I found all these forums and thanks for the sharings.

Cheers, Denise.

Bed Bugs  

Posted by Tommy (North York, On, Canada) on 09/04/2010


I just read an interesting article from Yahoo France that South African researchers fed bedbugs with blood contaminated with HIV. The virus was killed inside this bedbugs. The same happened when they fed them with Hepatitis B virus. I just imagined this scenario my self:

If a bedbug sucks 1/10 ml of blood and the average blood volume is 5L for an adult. We need 5000ml*10ml-1 bedbugs ( 500000 bb) to suck all the blood. What about if we inject a bolus of blood while the bedbugs are sucking the patient. Wouldn't that decrease the viral load? It's some mental gymnastics but it seems logical for me.

The aids virus, is dependent on a stable environment. It dies quickly outside the body. The moment the ph of the body reaches this critical point. Its environment is compromised.... It can do nothing else but die. So keep raising the PH till its stuffed?... Drop the body temp till its stuffed?... Or raise the body temp. till its stuffed. ?Another one comes to mind raise the alchohol to the max... I'm picking the ppm. Alchohol, the body can stand is more than the virus.

Viruses cannot live in an alkaline environment and they thrive in an acidic environment. When you raise your ph level to a certain alkaline state, it will kill the virus. You have to research it though because if you get your body too alkaline, it can be dangerous.

You can alkalize the body by using baking soda and molasses, or something called Cesium (which I haven't tried or researched). The baking soda and molasses, remedy, however is something I am familiar with. You should start by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and equal part molasses (or honey) in a cup of water (heated or not, just make sure the baking soda is dissolved completely, stir well). Drink this 3 times a day. Drink it no sooner than one hour before or after eating. You will gradually increase, after a couple days to 1/2 teaspoon, then to 3/4 and finally to 1 teaspoon of molasses and baking soda in a cup of water. Continue to drink it 3 times a day.

Use ph tests to keep track of what your ph level is.

Viruses (and cancer) feed off sugar (molasses and honey). The molasses works as a carrier for the baking soda (sort of a trojan horse effect, sneaking the baking soda in). When the virus goes to feed off the sugary carrier it is also, unknowingly, feeding off the baking soda, which oxygenates as well as alkalizes. Read about this method and protocol at

Hi, I just wanted to tell people about taking Blood root. I am HIV and I am not taking any treatment for the moment. My state was stable although I was feeling tired all the time and had swollen glands in the back of my neck and behind the ears. I had tried a few natural remedies to try and cope with the virus, but they all seemed so inefficient. Then a friend told me about Bloodroot and how it is used to locally treat some kind of cancers... I said why not... and I ordered the pills, which were hard to find! Every website said that internal use of bloodroot is toxic and dangerous... But I tried anyway, and I took 450mg 3 times a day (and I'm still taking it), it's been 3 weeks since I started and i don't regret it!!! The lymphs nodes have almost disappeared, I gained some weight on my body and face. The bags under my eyes are gone! And i have so much energy now! It's crazy...! I told my doctor about it and he said he'll do a blood test to see if I have a toxicity level in my blood. I'll post you the results.

While the word cure is a very final type of word, I would like to say that Coconut oil has been a welcome remedy in my life for the HIV virus. More and more information is becoming available about how the monolaurin and lauric acid in organic virgin coconut oil does its work to literally kill lipid-coated viruses such as HIV. I have been taking VCO off and on and have seen my viral load of 1100 (when 1st diagnosed) digress to 570 6 months later. I will be having another test shortly. My doctor said it was unusual for the virus to digress without medication, letting it not progress is one thing, to have it go backwards is another. Coconut oil remedies so many other ailments too, my skin feels amazing and its the only thing I use on my skin. You shouldn't put on your skin something you wouldn't ingest. Your skin is your biggest organ. I am a loyal user of this product and grateful to hear it endorsed by people like Gary Null.

I've been consuming 4 TBS of coconut oil daily each morning over several weeks. I'm not on meds yet but expect to be soon. I started taking 4 TBS of coconut oil each morning as part of my routine for several weeks. After all I read, I had high hopes for coconut oil. On my next checkup, my viral load had gone up, not down.

This is no cure.

Lynn, you say your doctor was surprised your viral load had gone down. I'm actually surprised your doctor was impressed by your numbers at all. By the very nature of the test it is expected that if you sent several samples of a single blood draw to the lab, you can get quite different results. An order of 2 difference is not considered a significant variance due to the nature of how the results are obtained. If your results had gone down to somewhere in the 100 range then you could say the change was more likely due to the coconut oil rather than test result variance.

In my case, my viral load was at 50 thousand, and three months later at 75 thousand. From a clinical perspective there really is no difference between the two readings, despite the apparent difference.

Replied by Truman956

There was a clinical study done on this and you can read all of it and decide for yourself.

Top line conclusion: "This initial trial confirmed the anecdotal reports that coconut oil does have an anti-viral effect and can beneficially reduce the viral load of HIV patients. The positive anti-viral action was seen not only with the monoglyceride of lauric acid but with coconut oil itself. This indicates that coconut oil is metabolized to monoglyceride forms of C-8, C-10, C-12 to which it must owe its anti-pathogenic activity."

One thing I found out.... the hard way, with HIV, is that in changing ones life style it also includes ELIMINATING STRESS on ALL LEVELS of your life. With myself, me getting the depression/anxiety under control was (as it seems to me), on the same level of important as eliminating the stress. Again, for me, the depression/anxiety kind of FUELED the stress. Or at least it seemed to me as though it did. But then I imagine the caffeine pills I took contributed to all of it as well. Along with some of the other medications... namely the two I'm on for the HIV (Isentress & Truvada that tend to cause the depression). So, it wasn't just ONE certain thing causing it. But, I've also found that along with trying and changing different vitamin combos (again, for myself) it's been a help getting stress/depression/anxiety under control. Then there's learning to meditate which is a way to promote relaxation, that helps with the stress as well. For people who may be open to various spiritual practices, a couple of sites.... has information on meditation as does ... has various classes online to help one learn things such as meditation for various situations they may be in which may contribute to any stress they may have. So It seems that it's all a "learning situation". For lack of a better way to put it. And if/when a person is lucky enough to come across a site like this... it's an even bigger help in my opinion.

Regarding the coconut oil - I would start with 1 t. of Organic Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil morning and evening for a few days. Then add another teaspoon mid day. If that agrees with you, take 2 t. three times a day for the second week. If that agrees with you move up to 1 Tablespoon three times a day.

Do some reading on Earth Clinic about Apple Cider Vinegar and PH balance. There are many things that may help you body to heal better. As you read other people's stories about dietary changes and supplements they take, it will give you ideas on how you can help your own health, even if the health problems they have are not the same.

I know how you feel my friend, but take a deep breath and try to not panic. Are you physically sick or you just have a positive test?

I tested positive 6 years ago. I have never taken meds. My numbers have always been alarming. But since I clinically have never been healthier I decided to ignore them. At one point I just got tired of doctors telling me how sick I am just by looking at a piece of paper, urging me to take chemotherapy for the rest of my life, when I'm perfectly fine.

You shouldn't take your positive test lightly though, it could mean there is a problem you need to address. However bad tests and counts may also be just that if you are clinically healthy. I suggest you get familiar with AIDS Rethinking movement. There are a lot of doctors, researchers, and Nobel Prize winners questioning the existing HIV/AIDS establishment. But they battle a very powerful lobby/industry. Beware of websites attacking people's characters, and not their message. Good luck!

D-3 Binding Protein

Immunotherapy of HIV-infected patients with Gc protein-derived macrophage activating factor (GcMAF).Yamamoto N, Ushijima N, Koga Y.

Serum Gc protein (known as vitamin D3-binding protein) is the precursor for the principal macrophage activating factor (MAF). The MAF precursor activity of serum Gc protein of HIV-infected patients was lost or reduced because Gc protein is deglycosylated by alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase (Nagalase) secreted from HIV-infected cells. Therefore, macrophages of HIV-infected patients having deglycosylated Gc protein cannot be activated, leading to immunosuppression. Since Nagalase is the intrinsic component of the envelope protein gp120, serum Nagalase activity is the sum of enzyme activities carried by both HIV virions and envelope proteins. These Nagalase carriers were already complexed with anti-HIV immunoglobulin G (IgG) but retained Nagalase activity that is required for infectivity. Stepwise treatment of purified Gc protein with immobilized beta-galactosidase and sialidase generated the most potent macrophage activating factor (termed GcMAF), which produces no side effects in humans. Macrophages activated by administration of 100 ng GcMAF develop a large amount of Fc-receptors as well as an enormous variation of receptors that recognize IgG-bound and unbound HIV virions. Since latently HIV-infected cells are unstable and constantly release HIV virions, the activated macrophages rapidly intercept the released HIV virions to prevent reinfection resulting in exhaustion of infected cells. After less than 18 weekly administrations of 100 ng GcMAF for nonanemic patients, they exhibited low serum Nagalase activities equivalent to healthy controls, indicating eradication of HIV-infection, which was also confirmed by no infectious center formation by provirus inducing agent-treated patient PBMCs. No recurrence occurred and their healthy CD + cell counts were maintained for 7 years.

The Same (Gc Protein) Gc-MAF has the same results with cancer.

It is certainly well-documented that HIV patients often suffer from drug resistant thrush. It would seem Iodone has been helpful for treating the thrush, and may be helpful for other symptoms, too.

Polymer-iodine inactivation of the human immunodeficiency virus.

Iodine in the Treatment of HIV
The feline immunodeficiency retrovirus (FIV) has a clinical pathology not unlike that of HIV/AIDS, including AIDS-related complexes and chronic immunodeficiency.1?2 In an uncontrolled case study, it was found that an adult cat diagnosed with endstage FIV recovered within eight weeks of treatment with a daily oral gavage of a commercially available iodine solution (tincture of iodine (2.5% w/v), 4 micrograms in 10 ml water, three times daily). Moreover, for at least five years there was no further clinical evidence of disease in this cat. The animal's recovery may have been due to iodine's broad spectrum therapeutic effect on opportunistic infections, or possibly because of suppression of viraemia.

I am uncertain if I fully understand your thread. Are you suggesting taking vitamin D3 supplements? Also, I just wanted to say that it would have been helpful if there were alot of people who have been living with HIV for more than 10 years. I have been diagnosed with HIV for almost 22 years. I have been off my meds for about 2 years now. I feel fine, but I DO notice I have more respiratory? (phlegm, that I MUST cough up and disperse). I take a host of vitamin supplements (some, I cycle) and vitamin D3 is one of them.
I know that there are foods which are not good for me, in accordance to my blood type; peanuts, avocadoes, white potatoes, coconut, wheat/gluten, etc..... Whenever I eat these foods, my body reacts-very noticeably-as they are HIGHLY inflammatory to my body.

Anyone have any views on bitters and/or oregon grape root?

Finally, many years ago (about 20), I remember a report about removing white blood cells from an infected person, and recycling it? I forget the medical terminology for this method.

Hi all.... I have been using Olive Leaf Extract n Comp A for 6 years... 3 months ago I upped the dosage and went in for a test.... results... negative...i have never been on meds... now adding chaga mushrooms.. another potent herb.. also known to reduce from positive to negative status.... a word of advise... always see ir doctor to check ur CD4 numbers n ur VL every 6 months....esp when using natural treatments only...... eat healthy.. fruits and vegs... raw veg juicing helps alot... sleep well... exercise... dont smoke ... dont consume alcohol... NO Sugar.... safe sex..... lets pray chaga mushroom... OLE.. Comp A... can be sort of a functional cure....

Replied by Will

Below are the most potent herbs that can reverse any symptoms and boost ur CD4 counts and even reduced ur VL to undetectable levels if taken at a higher dosage.... to the extend if tested... can b hiv negative.... (remember even negative does not mean u r cured)...

OLE.. need higher dose Comp A... contains.. astralagas... licorice.. ganoderma (reshi mushrooms) plus other herbs...really effective even if taken alone.... chaga mushroom... russian studies alot ... very promising.... Jergon sacha (peru plant.. also reduce VL to negative...) Mutamba (brazil plant) .. also same ......... good luck.. god bless

If you have been diagnosed with HIV, buy an Aloe Vera plant and cut off a small piece each day that you can swallow (capsule size). Take everyday and you can also supplement with Aloe Vera gel capsules.

Avoid aloe vera, onions, garlic and carrots while you are HIV positive. Research for yourself the origin and negative effect on your health.

I just did and I found no negative information regarding the Aloe Vera plant... for example: Aloe Vera has tremendous health benefits for immunity.

I would like to know if there is a cure for HIV? I am seeing a doctor who saved my life he says that I have the second worst strain of HIV in the world but I am more healthy then ever. I found out about it after having my daughter she is HIV- but I was on my death bed ten years ago?
