Aids Information, Symptoms and Natural Treatments

AIDS (HIV) is a very complicated and deadly disease with no known cure. While some drugs appear to slow progression of the disease and certain nutritional factors can be helpful, there is nothing that can be done to turn back the clock once AIDS has been contracted. Once AIDS has been contracted, a person is referred to as HIV-Positive.

HIV causes a large range of medical problems. Many of the symptoms associated with HIV are very similar to those caused by other conditions and diseases. Initial symptoms of HIV are flu-like in nature including fever, rash, joint pain, malaise, and swelling of the lymph nodes. While these symptoms may come and go, those with HIV are always asymptomatic. HIV affects all parts of the body with infections, tumors, and other immune-deficiency complications.
