AIDS and HIV Information

AIDS Patients Are In It For Life

Medicine and treatment for AIDS has come along way since 1981 when the disease was first discovered.  AIDS patients were told they would die quickly and there were no treatments available.  It caused panic, especially in the homosexual and drug user world.  Today, there are more than 22 drugs available and on the market to treat HIV and AIDS patients. 

More are on the way as scientists and researchers look into drug combinations, and look for ways to prolong life for the AIDS patient.  Doctors now believe there is methods of treating AIDS patients for a long time and give them a better quality of life. 

In your fight against AIDS, your doctor and medical team become the key people in your treatment.  If you have known for years that you are HIV positive, or have just learned and want to know your treatment choices, take the first step and find a doctor familiar with treating this disease. 

You should find a doctor that is experienced and is someone you feel you can trust.  A doctor that has your health in mind will offer treatment that is suited for you as an individual.  You have to remember, treating AIDS is not like treating a common cold.  It is complicated and scary.  Education and trust in your medical team will help you cope with the devastating effects of this disease.

Did You Know? 

Homeopathic treatments for patients with the early stages of HIV and for patients with early stages of AIDS have been proven effective. Some homeopaths have been able to help patients in advanced stages of AIDS but these are not considered a normal result.

There are exceptions to this rule and some patients were given a better quality of life after receiving homeopathic treatment. The use of conventional drugs takes a toll on the body because of the many side effects. Conventional drugs can stop working if the virus becomes resistant to those drugs.

An advantage to using homeopathic treatment is they can begin immediately when a patient starts displaying symptoms of opportunistic infections. Homeopathy has a history for success in treating infectious diseases. Many of the most fatal infections have successfully been treated with homeopathic treatment.

History shows patients treated with this natural therapy had lower death rates from diseases like scarlet fever, pneumonia, typhoid, and cholera. Hospitals, prisons, and insane asylums experienced high success rates in treating patients with these diseases with homeopathic treatments. Homeopathic medicine is now being used to treat viral infections in the world today.

If you have been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS you should take a step back, take a deep breath, and relax.  What you need to know initially is easy to learn and there are more treatment options available each year.  Since your doctor is an integral part of your AIDS treatment, you should have total trust in the one you choose.  Spend time looking for the right doctor, in the long run you will be glad you did.  Your doctor will be with you through the tests and treatments your disease will demand.  Studies show that if you are with a doctor that routinely treats other HIV and AIDS patients, you will live longer.  Find a doctor that specializes in immune deficiency diseases.  They will keep up-to-date on the latest research, drugs, and other treatment options for the AIDS patient.

Take an active role in choosing treatment for your disease.  Depression can cause you to lose interest in your health and treatment but this is something you should fight against. If you do not know where to look for a doctor, try calling your local AIDS organization and ask for recommendations.  There will normally be an AIDS service organization in any area and they can recommend doctors in your area.  If you still are unable to find a doctor who specializes in AIDS, call the CDC National AIDS Hotline at 1-800-342-AIDS. Don’t put your life and quality of life in someone else’s hands.  You should always be active in the choice of treatment choices.


AIDS Facts

Researchers are looking into new classes of AIDS drugs that will prevent the virus from getting into the cells.

Instead of suppressing the virus from multiplying itself, it is a drug that will stop the virus from reaching the healthy cells.

These medications can be safer and more effective but more testing and research needs to be done before they are available.

Remember when choosing your doctor you will want to feel comfortable with him or her in discussing the most intimate details of your life.  You will need to be able to discuss genital sores, bowel movements, sex life, and many other personal topics.  If you do not feel comfortable discussing such intimate subjects with the doctor you have chosen, you might want to find another doctor.  Your doctor will be your lifeline in your treatment for AIDS.
