HIV, or Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is a sexually transmitted disease first identified in the 1980s. The virus degrades the body's immune system by infecting CD4 or T-cells. These cells are responsible for fighting infectious diseases and with depleted numbers, your body becomes susceptible to infection, especially other sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis, trichomoniasis, and gonorrhea. If your immune system degrades too much and your CD4 cell count falls too low, a patient can develop AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Many people wonder whether there is natural cure for aids? At the moment, no but natural treatment can reduce your viral load to non-infectious levels. There are scientifically studied home remedies for HIV that can reduce viral load and/or maintain CD4 count which will help you lead a normal life and perhaps permanently delay the onset of AIDS.
Symptoms of Acute HIV Infection
There are three stages of an HIV infection. The first stage of the virus is known as acute HIV infection. In the first few weeks of infection, your body will begin to produce antibodies against HIV, and blood tests for these antibodies will begin to show positive.
As such this first stage is often called seroconversion illness (sero refers to blood, conversion refers to the fact that antibody tests have converted to positive).
The HIV virus attacks and kills the bodies immune cells (CD4 cells) and makes replications of itself by inserting its DNA into the infected immune cell.
In this process, the virus must bond with the immune cell receptors before it fuses with the cell.
Antiviral drugs use a combination of approaches to reduce this process targeting the bonding process or the replication process. If the virus is unsuccessful in multiplying, typically the immune cell count rises.
Home remedies for HIV also have similar mechanisms to prevent the virus multiplying.
