Human immunodeficiency virus infection / acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV / AIDS) is a disease of the human immune system caused by infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

During the initial infection, a person may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness. This is typically followed by a prolonged period without symptoms. As the illness progresses, it interferes more and more with the immune system, making the person much more likely to get infections, including opportunistic infections and tumors that do not usually affect people who have working immune systems.

Transmission

HIV is transmitted primarily via unprotected sexual intercourse (including anal and even oral sex), contaminated blood transfusions, hypodermic needles, and from mother to child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding. Some bodily fluids, such as saliva and tears, do not transmit HIV. Prevention of HIV infection, primarily through safe sex and needle-exchange programs, is a key strategy to control the spread of the disease.

  • The most frequent mode of transmission of HIV is through sexual contact with an infected person
  • The second most frequent mode of HIV transmission is via blood and blood products. Blood-borne transmission can be through needle sharing during intravenous drug use, needle stick injury, transfusion of contaminated blood or blood product, or medical injections with unsterilized equipment. People giving or receiving tattoos, piercings, and scarification are theoretically at risk of infection but no confirmed cases have been documented
  • HIV can be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, during delivery, or through breast milk. This is the third most common way in which HIV is transmitted globally

HIV / AIDS has had a great impact on society, both as an illness and as a source of discrimination. The disease also has significant economic impacts. There are many misconceptions about HIV / AIDS such as the belief that it can be transmitted by casual non-sexual contact. The disease has also become subject to many controversies involving religion

Signs & symptoms

There are three main stages of HIV infection: acute infection, clinical latency and AIDS.

Acute infection:

The initial period following the contraction of HIV is called acute HIV, primary HIV or acute retroviral syndrome. Many individuals develop an influenza-like illness; 2-4 weeks post exposure while others have no significant symptoms. Due to their nonspecific character, these symptoms are not often recognized as signs of HIV infection.

Clinical latency

The initial symptoms are followed by a stage called clinical latency, asymptomatic HIV, or chronic HIV. Without treatment, this second stage of the natural history of HIV infection can last from about three years to over 20 years (on average, about eight years). While typically there are few or no symptoms at first, near the end of this stage many people experience fever, weight loss, gastrointestinal problems, muscle pains etc.

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome:

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is defined in terms of either a CD4 + T cell count below 200 cells per µL or the occurrence of specific diseases in association with an HIV infection. In the absence of specific treatment, around half of people infected with HIV develop AIDS within ten years. Opportunistic infections may be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that are normally controlled by the immune system.

HIV testing

Most people infected with HIV develop specific antibodies (i.e. seroconvert) within three to twelve weeks of the initial infection. Diagnosis of primary HIV before seroconversion is done by measuring HIV-RNA or p24 antigen. Positive results obtained by antibody or PCR testing are confirmed either by a different antibody or by PCR.

Prevention
Sexual contact:

Consistent condom use reduces the risk of HIV transmission by approximately 80% over the long term. When a couple in which one person is infected uses condoms consistently, the rate of HIV infection is less than 1% per year.

Mother-to-child:

Programs to prevent the vertical transmission of HIV (from mothers to children) can reduce rates of transmission by 92-99%. This primarily involves the use of a combination of antiviral medications during pregnancy and after birth in the infant and potentially includes bottle-feeding rather than breastfeeding.


Conventional treatment offers the use of anti-retroviral medicines to treat HIV / AIDS. But these medicines have a lot of side effects, here using homoeopathic medicines becomes safe & beneficial as they have no side effects.

Homeopathy is known to be successful in the treatment of various infectious diseases in man, including several serious and potentially fatal infectious diseases. Studies on homeopathic treatment in people who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - positive or have AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) has shown that these remedies are useful treatment as a primary or as an adjunctive treatment to conventional therapy or during a structured treatment interruption program.
Even in people with AIDS or HIV infection in whom the various AIDS drugs are effective, several physicians and patients prefer treatment interruptions also called "drug vacations". These treatment interruptions are done to decrease the possibility of drug resistance and can last several weeks, months, or years. Homeopathic medicines are preferred during these treatment interruptions or to relieve the patient of complications.

Treatment of a patient is usually individualized, and the remedies are prescribed based on the symptoms, lifestyle, and emotional and mental states.

  • The Homeopathic drugs are very effective for treatment of other infections in people with HIV / AIDS.
  • These drugs cause no side effects or any worsening of general health of the patient.
  • Treatment with homeopathic drugs has been shown to boost immunity and decrease the number of virus in the patients with HIV infection.
  • The homoeopathic medicines are effective even in people who have discontinued the conventional treatment due to side effects.
  • Homeopathic medicines probably boost immunity, relieve stress, or improve general health and wellbeing of a patient with HIV infection or AIDS.
The goals of our therapies are to:
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Provide relief from symptoms and drug side effects
  • Improve your quality of life
