A combination of chaparral, pau d' arco and andrographis is very effective in dealing with both HIV, preveiously known as Human T-Celll leukemia/lymphoma virus type 3, as well as the lymphoma the virus is associated with. The herbs should be taken 3-4 times daily at least 20 minutes before meals.
The herb suma can be used to increase your CD4 counts.
I know you don't believe that HIV leads to AIDS, and that it only lowers CD4 counts, but what if someone has HIV and they do nothing about it? Does it lead to lymphomas or leave people susceptible to immune issues in the future?
The problem is that HIV cannot cause AIDS under the original definition of AIDS. The definition of AIDS was changed back in the early 80s to fit the HIV virus since Gallo, who had already been busted for scientific fraud, lied to the world again with his claim that HIV caused AIDS. So the government had to find a way to cover up his lie. So they changed the definition of AIDS to fit the virus. By adding the drop in CD4 counts they could now honestly claim that HIV could cause AIDS.
But the original definition of AIDS did not include leukemias and lymphomas. The original definition was testing positive and developing the opportunistic infections Kaposi's sarcoma, which is a different cancer with both viral and bacterial origins, and pneumocystis carinii pneumonia.
Since HIV is a cancer virus it can potentially cause cancer, but again the person would have to immune suppressed sufficiently to allow the virus to do this. And a healthy immune system can easily fight off the virus before it can take hold. This is one of the over 65 reasons for false positives on HIV tests.
This brings up another point. There are NO standard lab tests than can confirm the presence of HIV or any other virus. Antibody tests nor polymerase chain reaction (PCR, "viral load") do not prove the presence or activity of any particular virus. These are more sales tools than anything.
How was your lymphoma diagnosed?
I was told I probably had lymphoma, but the surgical biopsy came back negative. If they had not done the biopsy, I'm sure they would have presumptively diagnosed it as lymphoma. Then the docs insisted I had tuberculosis, but all the blood cultures came back negative for bacterial, fungal and mycobacterial pathogens. I've never been exposed to TB.
Finally, organic acid tests from an orthomolecular clinic determined I have fungal and bacterial overgrowth in my gut, which I am treating with a combination of allopathic and natural drugs.
I am also experiementing with high dose intravenous vitamic C for which there is considerable research (showbiz... use Google), especially with cancer. The lymph masses are reducing in size, and my energy has noticably increased. My CD4 went up to the highest level in three years, though the VL is still high as well (will the mysteries of the AIDS paradigm never cease?) I'll be getting updated CD4 and viral load in a few days.
I'm also tracking my progress with this trial on my blog.
BTW, for a different point of view on MMS, which was also suggested here, read this by Jonathan Campbell, a natural health consultant.
And if you do decide to go on ARVs, which is definitely an option, in my book, don't give up on the possibility that you might be one of the lucky ones who doesn't have to take them for life, according to this peer-reviewed study from Italy.
