Can herbs delay anti-body's?
Nov 23, 2005

I take about 20 herbal supplements 3x daily. I had oral sex with a sex worker 4 months ago; I performed unprotected cunnilingus on her for about 5 minutes; she did un-protected fellatio on me. Needless to say I lived through 3 months of misery, HAD EVERY SYMPTOM (EXCEPT A FEVER) and my Home Access test came back NEGATIVE AT 90 DAYS.

My question is since I take all of the herbs (which supposedly boost the immune system) can these herbs delay development, ergo detection on HIV anti-body? In other words is my 90 day test results WOO - HOO ABLE?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Twenty herbal supplements three times daily??? Yikes! That's expensive shit! And I'm not only talking about what you're putting into you, but also what's coming out of you!

OK, here's the scoop:

1. Herbs, even massive quantities, do not affect HIV test results.

2. Herbs, even massive quantities, do not "boost the immune system."

Bottom line: WOO-HOO.
