Discussions about Holistic Health and Alternative Medicine.
really, there presently is a cure- but its drastic, expensive, and not suitable for mass distribution as I understand it. See my link above. I wonder though if we'll start to see some really rich people start doing it?
Very interesting article. We can only hope that the "belief" comes to be "fact".
The first person believed to have been cured of AIDS, Timothy Ray Brown, addressed the media in the U.S. for the first time on Tuesday and said that reports he still has the HIV virus are false.
Yeah, I don't know what the time period is before he is deemed "cured" but for the time being it seems like he's free of it.
No. You should be able to track down the original articles pretty easily - if memory serves they basically replaced all his blood cells, or something like that. From what I understand this is not something that should be regularly done, and was only because of his leukemia. It's a pretty radical procedure.
Oh, certainly - he was cured but from what I understand this is not suitable for mass deployment and is not an answer to the problem nor is it likely to be.
That said: if the question is, "has anyone ever been cured of AIDS" the asnwer seems to be: "yes".
