Colloidal Silver vs.HIV Aids
Sep 7, 2004

i have been diagnosed since 1994. I am HIV+, gay male, 44yrs.i am currently under tx with meds. i have not adhered to my meds in the past. (med holidays...way too many) i have now been taking my meds on a regular basis for the past 8 weeks. my last lab work was not impressive at all and scared the hell out of me. if i recall correctly my t-cell was 29 and VL 75,000 ( i think) i look well and feel well , its just knowing that my labs are not good has putme in a mind state that has me worried. I was introduced to colloidal silver thru a friend. I am very aware that it is not FDA approved. The truth is since taking this in conjunction with following my med's strictly...I have felt absolutely perfect. My skin tonei s great, seemingly asymtomatic by outer appearance. I am awaiting my next round of bloodwwork but want your opinion on colloidal silver for those who are HIV+.

Response from Mr. Vergel

There are no data on colloidal silver and HIV at all. I would not count on it too much, no matter how well you feel. With your numbers, I would concentrate on taking an effective drug combination like Kaletra+Viread+Emtriva to get your T cells up and viral load in control. Also, you need MAC, PCP, and Meningitis prohilaxis. Talk to your doctor about this. Also, take your medications on time, your llife depends on it!
