Herbal remedies & Aids

Oct 25, 1999

Are there any herbal remedies that may be used in the treatment of hiv/aids? Would any herbs help decrease the viral load?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There have been very few controlled studies to address this question. St Johns Wort was recently studied and found to have no effect on viral load. Many herbs have been advertised to have "immune system enhancing" effects. This may be true, but has not been objectively documented. MH

Now begin therapy?
