How do you boost your CD4?
      #262204 - 04/03/12 12:45 AM

Diet and exercise seem to be the most common thing to think of (what a no brainer)

But what are some things you guys do that seem to work?

ATTITUDE is a big factor. You become as you think. You know the saying " you'll worry yourself sick" well its true. So just do that which you can and as for me I leave the rest in Gods hands.

I also find that taking ones mind off oneself helps. When you focus on reaching out and helping others can be very rewarding in may ways. But be careful about extending yourself too much . AT those times I personally will retreat from all to re-energize in a sense. When your reaching out to others that are hurting , there is usually negativity that comes off the person your helping . Thats why they need help , but just be careful and monitor ones own spirit also. Nothing wrong with retreating. Keeps your ability to help others strong.

As my specialist puts it, extra CD4 "is not like money in the bank".... Its a clinical marker, yes, but that doesn't mean that the higher and higher your numbers are, the more and more healthy you become. When you have enough, its does the job it needs to be doing...

These days meds are recommended for counts less than 500, but again, that is a clinical marker found to coincide with CD4 decline, and thus chosen as a value to serve as a preventative of further decline.... It can be argued that even 250 is 'enough'.

Boosting those numbers, in and of itself, will not likely be affecting your health... But its the other things people have mentioned... diet, good self-esteem, optimism, exercise, which will keep you healthy.
