AIDS no more
Studies show that the drug cocktail does not destroy the HIV virus, but instead weakens body's immunity. Now some independent scientists are veering round to believe that attacking the virus (HIV) will not deal with the underlying causes of immune suppression. AIDS is the consequence of a suppressed immune system which has been subjected to repeated onslaughts by four factors that build up toxins and deficiencies in the body. These are: antibiotic abuse, recreational drug abuse, anal sex (which causes toxic shock to the receiving partner) and nutritional stress.
Realization is also slowly but surely dawning that the damage caused by the stressed immune system could be reversed by good diet, yogic and other exercises, herbs available readily, acupuncture, homoeopathy, proper rest, avoidance of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, proper hygiene, etc. In other words, a person is to be treated as a whole : body, mind and spirit.
Over the years, it has also become obvious that only gay community and those indulging in substance abuse, progressed towards full-blown AIDS. In other words, what I have said in my book Aids and Alternative Medicine, and what many other Holistic Healers have been saying is now being accepted; that the repeated assaults on the body's immune system by the build-up of toxins, nutritional deficiencies, coupled with unnatural living, lead to AIDS. And with that the wisdom is dawning that the damage could be reversed without drugs. This new dimension puts to doubt the accepted belief that a virus, HIV, is responsible for causing AIDS.
The HIV tests, per se, are being questioned. These tests, we have always maintained, were of dubious merit. Now, after twenty years and ruining prescious lives of young people by creating Aids Scare, it is slowly dawning on the authorities that indiscriminate HIV tests have played havoc with people's lives. Consequently, HIV test is no longer mandatory in many parts of the world. But ignorance once rooted, takes time to be uprooted. Many private hospitals in Bombay still insist on a routine HIV test before admission.
There is enough to show that the HIV tests, Elisa and Western Blot, can show false results when there is cross-reactivity with a host of viral and bacterial species. At least 70 different conditions like influenza, herpes simplex, hepatitis, all mycobacterium bacterial species (including leprosy and tuberculosis), malaria, malnutrition and even in pregnancy, a person may be tested positive and falsely labelled as such, ruining his life and that of his family.
The fact that the HIV test is not specific
for the detection of the virus is clearly stated in the literature accompanying
the Elisa test kits (from Abbott Laboratories, for instance). In the
light of this evidence questions arise about whether bombarding the
virus does any good to the body.
Africa is cited as the example of a continent in the throes of AIDS. Health historians say that AIDS here, is a consequence of the depletion of the body's nutrition pool over generations, and the destruction of the immune system. As sub-Saharan Africa plunged deeper into the cycle of poverty, malnutrition and civil war, it also suffered epidemics of Ebola, Marburg or Lhassa fever that stayed with them for decades. AIDS, they say, is the logical conclusion of this onslaught. The deepening economic crisis of India's poor, likewise, will see more people testing 'HIV positive' because of their depleting nutrition status, stress and compromised immunity.
This implies that the poor 'AIDS
Victims' of the world, as a whole need more than condoms, sex education
and a cocktail therapy of questionable value and we need to look at
our age-old Holistic Healing modalities, which are safer, cheaper, faster
and more reliable than the lethal cocktails. The only cocktail that
I drink and prescribe is the fruit juice cocktail. (Lest you misunderstand,
I am not HIV positive. But I am positive that HIV does not cause AIDS).
