alternative treatments
Aug 8, 2004

I have a friend in Romania recently diganoised with HIV. He keeps asking me about alternative treatments like Revivo and Virasol.I have asked The Body twice and have never received an answer. PLEASE can you give me some information on these 2 items? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Here's a link to Dr. Pierone's answer on Revivo ; and a thread posted on another website on Viralsol .

I am highly skeptical of the claims from both companies.

I agree with Dr. Pierone that in a setting where we have medications with proven efficacy and well characterized safety and toxicity profiles, that now is not the time to be "experimenting" with untested claims. I would advise your friend to save his money, contact an AIDS service organization in Romania for advice and counsel about the best ways to preserve his health.

Thanks for reading. BY

Good CD4, but sudden jump in VL
