First of all, I would consider getting HIV treatment with your high viral load.
There are many great resources in San Francisco. Call the Project Inform Helpline at 1-800-822-7422
Dr Rick Loftus and Dr Howard Grossman are great at treating HIV comprehensively with medications, proper nutrition and hormonal balance, so give them a try. They are listed.
