Alternative AIDS Treatment

Jul 31, 2000

Have you heard about Black Cumin (nigella sativa)? It is an herb extremely popular in Germany and apparently is an immune booster. I read an article which claims that scientific evidence suggest its use for aids and cancer.

Response from Mr. Kull

I am not familiar with Black Cumin as an alternative AIDS treatment or immune booster. Please visit the Alternative, complementary, and holistic treatments link at The Body. Some resources there might help you in your research. Definitely talk to your medical doctor before deciding to substitute or complement current treatments with alternative ones.


I really need the answer to my question
