Elderberry Extract
      #3266 - 04/06/00 03:41 PM

I just wanted to share this with all of you...I have been on a 4drug combo for the past 3yrs(Norvir, Fortavase,Zerit,3tc) and have had steadily increasing surrogate markers over this time. Up from 3 tcells
to always between 180-205 for the past 2 1/2 years,

Now the news...I recently read an article about elderberry extract in a holistic newsletter. I'll admit, although I am not reaelly into alternative therapy sometimes I do figure "what the hell" so I tried taking two teaspoons of elderberry extract per day. I figured since this is really just flower extracts it really could not hurt.

After about 6 weeks I had my labs done and was very pleasantly surprised to see an increade to 339 T cells! First time evr over 300.

Now this may be a lucky coincidence or not???Just wondered if anyone else has taken this stuff. I will continue to see what happens but right now I am amazed as well as very happy!

Good luck to all

Sam,
It costs about $21.00 per bottle which is about a month supply. I don't know what insurance you have but it is probably not covered as this is an herbal product. But, you never know!
