Aids

Aids 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.

Significant 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.

AIDS and Oxidative Stress: Protecting the body against free radical damage can help it better fend off viruses and may slow the progression of AIDS.

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 infection.

AIDS and Digestive Function: AIDS patients often suffer from serious health complications related to impaired digestive function.

AIDS 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 with AIDS.

AIDS 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 allergens.

AIDS and Fatty Acids: Nutritional imbalances of fatty acids are critical, because they play such a key role in regulating the body's immune response.
