Exercising and diet
Sep 2, 2003

Hello, I have been HIV since 1988 and doing good as far as my viral load and CD4, undetectable and Tcell 650, but I am dealing with a lot of stress at home due to another ill family member that I have to take care of, is there any type of recommendation you can suggest about a gym or establishment that I can join using my HMO to soothe the stress through exercise, yoga or just some type of professional therapy? I bought your book long time ago but give it away to a friend and never got it back, there you were talking about a gym in the Houston area that were accepting HMO. Hope you can give me some ideas, thanks!

Response from Mr. Vergel

If you are in Houston, call the Body Positive Wellness Center that I help to create for people with HIV. It is either free or on a sliding scale. You will get 12 weeks of supervised exercise and nutritional counseling with BIA testing. There is also a supplement program. Exercise is a greatway to manage stress and get healthier. Good luck.
