Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post from India.

Silver therapy is not a cure for HIV. Period.

We already have many excellent and scientifically-proven, well tolerated treatments for HIV. I expect that medications will continue to get even better tolearated and more potent in the future.
