Can HIV be Cured?

Here's a post from http://manilagayguy.net

The discoverer of HIV himself, 2008 Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier, answers: “[Yes] I would think so.” [watch his video interview below]

This post is going to be controversial, I know, and if this leads to confusion I apologize in advance. I am, however, very much wondering about this topic. When I posted the letter of McVie and Carlo, I saw how several readers reacted with fear and (perhaps) trembling regarding being infected with HIV. Stats have been floated around saying the Philippines has succumbed to an epidemic-level spread of the virus. Nakakatakot. I even heard of several people, allegedly, committing suicide when they tested positive for HIV. I wonder, how much truth there is in this video interview. Of course, I would say always practice safe sex. My curiosity though lies in how people should handle the fear around having HIV. This is serious, as the fear sometimes kills even before the actual virus. Can HIV be really managed and eventually naturally cured by the body’s immune system, aided by proper nutrition and effective antioxidants? Watch this video and contribute your thoughts.

This video got me confused the first time i saw it, I was like "huh?" What does that mean? Can HIV be really cured? Can the virus just disappear from my body? As i was watching for the second time, I found my answer's. Armed with education, together with proper nutrition, good hygiene and strong immune system can decrease the chance of acquiring HIV, not  necessarily curing HIV, personally I don't think HIV can be cured, once its in your body it stays for good, it will just keep on multiplying, but with the help of Antiretroviral drugs, it slows down the virus from spreading into our body.

I'm still hoping that "cure" is on its way, but I'm not going to rely on it. The cure is found within myself, its how I keep my body healthy, the way I live my life, and the way i see things no matter how bad it is. :)

  2. This video is true. He is the recipient of the Nobel for the discovery of HIV, even though he himself said that he didn't purify (isolate) the virus and he believes the american who "introduced" hiv to the world, Robert Gallo, didn't as well.

    CD4 count is not an AIDS marker in Canada, Europe, UK and Australia. Why is it a marker for AIDS in the US and Philippines?

    Tuberculosis + HIV = AIDS = lifetime ARV treatment = "no cure"
    Tuberculosis - HIV = TB = 6 mos treatment = can be cured

    Ain't that a wonder how AIDSpeak convolutes definitions? Check out more videos and I suggest you get the video in this site for your own education.
