is caused by the HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) virus, a virus
found primarily in blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast
milk. The HIV virus weakens the immune system by infecting and often
killing T-helper cells, making the body more vulnerable to a host
of other infections. Fever, weight loss, swollen lymph glands, and
the development of various cancers and infections are all symptomatic
of the disease.
strides against AIDS treatment have been made in recent years, so
that increasingly AIDS is being viewed as a chronic disease, rather
than a terminal one. Since more patients are living for longer periods
with this condition, a holistic, functional approach towards treating
the disease is more imperative than ever.
and Oxidative Stress: Protecting the body against free
radical damage can help it better fend off viruses and may slow
the progression of AIDS.
and Male Hormones: Males with low circulating levels of testosterone may be more
prone to muscle wasting and other symptoms of a more aggressive
and Digestive Function: AIDS patients often suffer from
serious health complications related to impaired digestive function.
and Adrenal Hormones: Some researchers believe that imbalances
of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA suppress immune response
and make the body more vulnerable to the viral infections associated
and Intestinal Permeability: Many individuals with AIDS
present with "leaky gut"—damage to the GI barrier that
can further compromise health by increasing the penetration of toxins
and Fatty Acids: Nutritional imbalances of fatty acids
are critical, because they play such a key role in regulating the
body's immune response.
