Q. The HIV test came back POSITIVE!

My very close friend 'Demonte'. One day in December as he was returning from a business trip, his wife met him at the airport with terrible news. During a routine pregnancy check up, her doctor had administered an HIV test along with other blood-work. The HIV test came back POSITIVE! The doctor wanted to begin administering drugs immediately but the cost of these drugs here when compared to their family income was prohibitive. I helped him with some of my savings. He already sold his favorite sentimental car to save his precious wife. Now i want to know is there any NATURAL medicine to cure this? Hope it costs less and available.
A1there are no effective natural remedy for HIV. the medications are very hard ones that try to control the virus from spreading (cannot eliminate it though). no herbal remedy or nutrition change will do that.
A2One web page said : Remedies derived from plants is common to many cultures, and a number of advanced pharmaceutical drugs were derived from plants. Not just herbalists but naturopaths, homeopathic, ayurvedic, Chinese, and Native American medical practitioners use herbs as one component in an overall system of medicine. For example, Chinese medicine practitioners may use herbal formulas, acupuncture, meditation, and massage techniques simultaneously. Chinese herbs are frequently used in combination to provide a tonic for general health. Herbs have been used extensively in hopes of improving immune response and reducing symptoms. No known herbal remedy has been shown to cure AIDS or even reduce chances of AIDS-related infections. Still, some herbs can be worth trying if you use them safely and in consultation with a qualified practitioner who not only understands herbs but also has experience treating AIDS and HIV infection.
