Response from Dr. Holodniy
If someone has a HIV viral load result of 24,000 copies/mL, then by definition they are HIV infected. A CD4 count of 930 indicates a CD4 count in the normal range which is good and indicates that the immune system has not been damaged to any great degree yet. Although there is no urgency to start HIV meds, HIV infection should be treated with approved HIV medications and can be supplemented with Ayurvedic herbs or medicines, provided that they do not interact with approved HIV medications.
