immune system reconstruction
May 31, 2006
are they any meds that helps the immune system to get back the force in fighting against the desease? are they any natural products available with zero side effects?
Response from Dr. Henry
Antiretroviral medications used effectively are the best way to allow the body to recovery from HIV related damage. There is no currently available treatment that enhances HIV-specific immunity that would allow the body to fight off HIV without antiretroviral medications. No natural products have been clearly shown to decrease AIDS-related disease or mortality other than perhaps a modest benefit from vitamin/mineral supplemention (benefit much less than what is seen with effective antiretroviral medication).
