Natural therapy and treatment for HIV AIDS
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. When HIV enters in a person’s body, HIV moves inside white blood cells known as "CD4 lymphocytes." HIV conquers the CD4 cells and makes copies of billions of HIV each day. The HIV copies expand throughout the body of a person. HIV infected person’s body tries to protect itself against HIV by producing antibodies and by special cells called macrophages and natural killer T-cells. These antibodies and special cells help HIV infected person to get rid of some of the virus copies. After acute HIV infection, body of HIV infected person works hard to attack the HIV in defense. With your body combating with the HIV and stopped it to make copies. Even though HIV infected person still have HIV infection in his body. Over 10 to 15 years, HIV would kill so many CD4 cells that your body could no longer fight off infections. Now, HIV infected person is diagnosed as having AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Once HIV infected person is diagnosed with AIDS, he can easily get infected with many serious infections.
