Hello and thanks for posting.
While HIV medications are now recommended for nearly all people living with HIV, it's possible that you're one of the unusual, and fortunate long-term non-progressors. Before concluding anything about your CD4 and immune health, it would be helpful to know your CD4 percentage- your absolute CD4 count would predict a CD4 percentage in excess of 40%. A viral load test (if available where you live) could also help in figuring this out. LTNP have very low, and often undetectable viral loads without treatment.
Morienga is not a treatment for HIV, and I don't recommend it's use.
Hope that's helpful,
