Homeopathic & herbal remedies
Jan 7, 2008
hello. i'm 25 y.o., hiv & hbv +. I am soon to begin meds because, while my hiv numbers have been good, my hep b viral load has shot up as have my liver functions. My question to you is, are there any supplements or homeopathic remedies, herbs etc., that can aid in my treatment and also in promoting healthy liver functions? also I was wondering what your thoughts/opinions are on ozone therapy.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Unlikely that any of these purported remedies will work. Make sure that your HIV regimen also includes meds that have activity against HBV, so both viruses can be treated at the same time. No good data that I am aware of that ozone therapy makes any long term difference.
