"There is a less severe variety of aids, called AIDS-related complex (ARC), that only sometimes develops into aids. However, not everyone who is exposed to the HTLV-III virus develops ARC or aids. It seems conceivable that personality and psychological factors again play a role in who gets sick and who stays well, but we would expect these factors to be less significant in the case of such a strong attack on the body. aids is certainly one candidate for the proper use of the magic-bullet approach."

"While training aids doctors at the University of Cape Town, we interviewed Dr. Nigel, an expert and champion in his field. Treating thousands with this cruel disease, he understands that long-term survival for aids patients in South Africa is currently unlikely. But for those who live longest and best, he says, "It's all how they place their illness. It must be a priority, but it mustn't be the only priority. My best patients aggressively manage their illness but also aggressively do the things they love to do. It's a balancing act, really."

"Recently, the aids population has shown significantly reduced levels of carnitine. Some of the end-stage symptoms of AIDS—exhaustion, cachexia, and muscle weakness—may respond to carnitine supplementation, offering patients a potential therapeutic benefit. Although carnitine deficiencies may occur at very different levels, the more common subtle deficiencies occur in those with cardiovascular disease. So, lets discuss what I believe is one organ for which carnitine has the greatest utility: the heart."

"In some cases, HIV, the virus that causes aids, can be a cause of unexplained fatigue. Fortunately, more regular awareness and early testing for this syndrome in recent years has reduced the number of cases where fatigue shows up prior to a diagnosis. Testing for aids is essential except when an individual has absolutely no risk factors for becoming infected: having no sexual relations at all; being a lesbian, who is at greatly reduced risk; and having no possible exposure to blood products. Finally, hepatitis C can produce fatigue in the absence of any signs of liver disease."

"Although Glen's disease progressed to aids early on, Adam had many symptom-free years. One benefit of Adam's better health was that he was able to serve as caregiver when Glen's health began to falter. One weekend in April 1990, Adam was reading his favorite newspaper and noticed a small advertisement looking for HIV-positive men who were caregivers to their partners diagnosed with aids. He was surprised and pleased to see that scientists wanted to study someone in his shoes, so he called the number at UC San Francisco to learn more. The study involved physical exams and lots of interviews."

"If you have fears of aids or of blood, you are exposed to blood or taken to the hospital where there might be patients with aids. Or you will read articles on the condition. "If it is contamination from dirt the patient is afraid of, we teach the person how to touch objects and not to be afraid of them. Then we prevent the patient from washing their hands; in other words, they must remain unclean for awhile. I'm talking about patients who, when they are seriously ill, might completely use up one or two bars of soap per day. They might engage in rituals of washing for many hours."

"They knew aids would likely take their lives before life-saving drugs were ever available to physicians. One aids victim from Chicago announced, "We are here for all the people with aids, but we are also here for all the other people with life-threatening illnesses who need drugs now."20 Drug manufacturers also wanted to speed up the approval of new drugs. In 1992 new drugs took, on average, 22 months to get approved.21 The average person can barely conceive of how much potential revenue this costs the industry. In the year 2000 drug companies were making, on average, $1."

"Thermogenic aids claim to increase your metabolism to cause your body to burn more calories when at rest. Examples of thermogenic aids are the caffeine in coffee and teas, and natural compounds such as guarana and ephedra. Increasing your metabolism is naturally achieved with increased levels of physical activity. It is much better and safer to take a pass on the nachos and exercise than to use thermogenic aids. Neal Spruce comments that, "In the supplement industry we call thermogenic compounds 'results crutches' for people who are unable to eat properly and exercise regularly."

"A similar excess risk of aids and AIDS-related death was observed. It's unlikely that the lowered cholesterol levels were due to HIV itself because those diagnosed with HIV during the first four years were excluded from the calculations(50). An inverse association between total cholesterol and aids mortality was also found in a follow-up of the MRFIT screenees(51)."

"Many patients have told us over the years that these aids for choosing the "right" foods to eat to prevent, reverse, or treat diabetes are not easy to use and cause many of them to throw up their hands and give up. Indeed, what many people don't know is that these tools can be very misleading. Take the glycemic index, for example. Glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly a specific food will raise your blood glucose level. Basically, it is commonly believed that foods that rank high on the GI charts are considered bad, while those that rank low are considered good."

"High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the "helpful" (think "H" = "high" = "helpful") lipid-protein compound because it aids in eliminating excess cholesterol from the vascular system and reduces the risk of heart and blood vessel diseases."

"A Mid-America Heart Institute study, published around the time Targ published her aids study and considered at the time to have bolstered Targ's findings, showed that Christians of all denominations enlisted to pray for hospitalized cardiac patients reduced symptoms by 10 percent, with fewer medical setbacks.3 Prayer is viewed as a kind of super-intention, a joint endeavor: you do the intending, and God carries it out. In some quarters, intention is considered synonymous with prayer, and prayer synonymous with healing; when you send out an intention, God puts the intention into action."

"It also aids in insulin metabolism, and thus may reduce insulin resistance. It also serves as a coenzyme for several different enzymes. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that most Americans fail to consume enough chromium in their diets. In fact, most diets contain less than 60 percent of the minimum suggested amount (50 micrograms [ug or meg]) of chromium daily."

"In the aids and addiction wards of Cook County Hospital, she had fulfilled some of that mission. But then she'd become a mother, and had begun working with autistic children at Pfeiffer, and had found the true center of her life. Anju's second daughter, Aniyka, had been born only a couple of years after Priya, and Anju had prayed that Aniyka would have an easier time in life than had little Priya. For a time, Anju's prayers seemed to be answered. Aniyka was a happy baby. Easy. Healthy."

"The role vitamin D plays in increasing a person's susceptibility to HIV infection is unclear, but the role that vitamin D plays in fighting tuberculosis (TB) and probably hepatitis C and other opportunistic viral and bacterial infections that aids patients suffer is indisputable. Cranking Out Protection Your immune system keeps churning away at its three big jobs throughout your life—functions that affect all the systems in your body. This amazing system protects you from infections, identifies and repairs damaged tissues, and forages for abnormal cells."

"There are currently only eleven antivirals, other than those used almost exclusively in the treatment of aids. By brand name, they are: Zovirax, Famvir, and Valtrex (for herpes viruses); Symmetrel, Tamiflu, Flumadine, and Relenza (for influenza viruses); Vistide, Foscavir, and Cytovene (for cytomegalovirus); and Virazole (for respiratory syncytial virus). Of these, the three most commonly used by autistic patients are Valtrex, Zovirax, and less frequently, Symmetrel. Valtrex is most often used for common herpes virus conditions, ineluding chicken pox and shingles."

"I would routinely dispense a diagnosis and then send patients down the symptom-curbing path of anti-inflammatory drugs, pain medications, antidepressants, and sleep aids. Unfortunately, I saw that my own interventions often did little to stabilize or alleviate my patients' problems, so I searched for clues that would help me better understand this symptom/disease bundle. That was when serendipity brought me into the loop: I began to experience some of the very same symptoms that plagued my patients."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"As an aids doctor, she was aware of the incredible power of the immune system-and also of its frightening vulnerability. Anju had by this time vaulted far past conventional medical wisdom, and was working with autistic and other chronically ill children at the Pfeiffer Institute in Chicago, which specializes in treating biochemical imbalances and heavy metal toxification. Anju, I learned, had been on an arduous intellectual journey."
- Kenneth Bock, Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders (Get the book.)

"Anju, at that time, was treating aids patients and drug addicts at Chicago's Cook County Hospital, and that work brought her an intense sense of satisfaction-but compared to Priya} There was no comparison. The idea of living without Priya suddenly seemed not just pointless to Anju, but practically impossible. On the other hand, life with Priya was pretty impossible, too. Cook County Hospital was a medical combat zone."

"In other words, it may not be the lactase from probiotics in the small intestine that aids symptoms of lactose intolerance, but the fermentation of lactose by probiotics in the colon. As such, changing the probiotic colonies in the colon may help lactose digestion. The probiotics best suited to do this are Bifidobacteria, the most prominent probiotics in the colon. Bifidobacterium longum has been investigated as a potential probiotic treatment for lactose intolerance. It appears to have a positive effect. In a study, 11 lactose-intolerant volunteers were given a capsule (B."

"Working with carnitine, arginine helps improve male sexual function, aids in the delivery of carnitine to ischemic regions of the heart and muscles, and increases testosterone levels, helping hearts and muscles. Other carnitine-amino acid combinations exist, particularly involving glycine and taurine. The basic question is, "If amino acids and carnitine are effective together, why not just supplement with both individually?" The answer is this. There are three important actions that occur in the gut when supplements are taken—dissociation, dissolution, and absorption."

"It takes up residence in the small intestine, vagina, urethra and cervix. It aids in the production of niacin, folic acid and pyridoxine, three B vitamins. It may lower serum cholesterol. L. acidophilus has been found in clinical studies to be effective against antibiotic-associated diarrhea and appears to offer health benefits to people suffering from atopic disease, including dermatitis. Resistant to stomach acid and bile salts, this probiotic is a good candidate for effectively reaching the intestines after oral consumption. Lactobacillus brevis L."

"Soaking also aids in breaking down the complex sugars (oligosaccharides), which challenge the digestive system and cause gas. Some herbs that help in the digestion of beans can be added during cooking. For example: bay leaves, cumin, winter or summer savory, fresh epazote (available in Hispanic markets). Many people from India maintain the tradition of chewing on dried fennel seeds or drinking a cup of fennel tea at the end of a legume meal to aid the digestion. As a general rule of thumb, 1 cup of dried beans will yield about VA to 3 cups of cooked beans."

"And then she saw her patients with end-stage aids getting better. During the six months of the trial period, 40 per cent of the control population died. But all ten of the patients in the healing group were not only still alive but had become healthier, on the basis of their own reports and medical evaluations. At the end of the study, the patients had been examined by a team of scientists, and their condition had yielded one inescapable conclusion: the treatment was working. Targ almost didn't believe her own results."

"Because of its sticky texture it can pick up toxins and waste material, carrying them out of the body; its bulk aids in constipation. If your mouth becomes numb while chewing, this usually indicates some type of antibacterial or antiseptic properties. If your mouth completely dries out, then the plant has astringent qualities. You also want to pay attention to what the taste reminds you of. Perhaps this plant has the same vitamins and minerals as a food you've tasted in the past."

"It serves as a digestive tonic as well as an astringent, which stems all manner of excessive bleeding and aids in the healing of wounds. It makes an excellent gargle for sore throat and inflamed gums. One of the reasons Agrimony is such a wonderful healing herb is its unique ability to relieve tension in all of its many guises whether it be in the gut, reproductive organs, during respiration, in a constricted liver or kidney, or the nervous system. A person who is uptight but hides behind a cheerful facade could benefit from Agrimony."

It can be considered toxic, since inhaled particles can be damaging to the lungs of sensitive people.
