can i take 14 day acai berry clense weight loss flush with arv?
Feb 9, 2011

I'm presently taking neviraphine and combivor hiv medication,???? wanted to confirm if it is safe for me to take acai berry 14 day cleanse and flush or which detox you think would be cool with my medication.

Response from Dr. Henry

No published data in a quality medical journal (though considerable number of anecdotal claims on internet by manufacturers and patients)that acai berry colonic cleansing is safe or effective in the setting of HIV infection regardless of HIV regimen. I have had occasional patients utilize the acai berry colonic cleanse--generally no benefit observed and no harm noticed. KH
