Cure for HIV

I found out I was HIV+ in March of 1991. At that point in time the only thing I wanted was the cure! I proceeded to research and read everything I could about HIV. I was determined there was a cure out there. I finally read a book that suggested a treatment called Compound Q killed HIV. I searched and found a buyer's club that sold it. Spent several hundred dollars to get this side effect nightmare. I then had to go to New York to be able to get someone to give me this stuff. Afterwards I was as red as a lobster for a week with a $200 Benadryl habit. I was dumb enough to do this a second time, all in the search of a cure.

I remembered always seeing on the news how people were protesting and fighting for improvements in our health care. Trying to get funding for research for a cure. Or at least I thought it was supposed to be for a cure.

After that I spent a few years drowning my sorrows in a bottle. Then came along protease inhibitors, which I was very happy to take. I was able to develop other side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and lipodystrophy. Hey, but we were now healthy and able to live.

Now here it is almost 10 years later and to show the advances we had made they were able to come out with new terms such as Quality of Life Issues, Structured Treatment Holidays or Drug Holidays. Where was the fight for the cure? I had also now become involved in trying to help ease the suffering in people with HIV.
The fight seemed to be for prevention -- even though for the last 9 years 40,000 people where getting infected. I am sorry to say I don't think that's working. We fought to lower the cost of the medication so the evil drug companies wouldn't become so rich. OK we haven't won that battle yet either. We fought to make sure people could have access to medications. Well if we won that battle why are the AIDS Drug Assistance Program rules so different from state to state? Some are very good and some equal to third world countries.

The latest big fight is getting our drugs to third world countries. OK lets ship them our nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and lipodystrophy. Don't let me forget our good friend neuropathy. Let's get the drug companies more money. Don't these people just want a cure?

Now the drug manufacturers don't even bother making new drugs. They just reformulate old drugs or combined them together such as ddC or the latest Trizivir or however it is spelled. Even after all this we still haven't gotten pretty Damn Mad. I am not saying that these aren't noble and worthy causes.

Certainly prevention has helped. Funding for research has increased over the years. The medicines have improved. We have learned to tolerate the side effects. The drug companies are in the business to make money.

But where did our fight for the cure go? I don't know when it happened or where it happened or how it happened. But we seem to have lost the fight for the cure. Have we decided to accept living taking pills day after day with no end in sight! Have we decided to tolerate side effects as part of our normal life? Over the last 5 years I have had to take at least 10 pills a day. That's 18250 pills and that's just a minimal estimate. When do we start fighting for the cure again?

After all of this when do we start demanding a cure! When do we start protesting for a cure? When do we start writing our Congressmen, Senators and President, whoever he is, for a cure. When do we start saying to the pharmaceutical companies WE WANT A CURE? When do we start sending money to research for a cure? Where do we have some say that what we are really interested in is a cure? Don't give me more treatments and new side effects! I want a Cure and I want it now! Please let me know, I want to get in that fight.

Sleep tonight cause of liver cancer

The doctors at the National Taiwan Hospital recently shocked the world of medicine since the discovery of the case of a 37-year-old young doctor who has been truly believe the results of liver function (GOT, GPT), was the eve of feast Imlek positive note over 10 suffered from liver cancer cm.

So far, almost everyone is very dependent on the results of the index liver function tests (Liver Function Index). They think if the inspection shows a normal result index means everything is OK.

Misconceptions of this kind was also performed by many specialists. Really surprising, the doctors who should provide the right knowledge in the general population, turned out to have knowledge that is not true.

Prevention of liver cancer should be done the right way. There is no other way except to detect and treat it as early as possible, so the doctor said Hsu Chin ch'uan. But ironically, it turns out doctors who deal with liver cancer can also have a wrong view, even misleading the public, this is why the biggest cause of liver cancer is difficult to cure.

We have a patient who complained that Hsu doctors over the last month is often experience abdominal pain and weight down so much. After the new supersound examination found a huge liver cancer, nearly 80% of his liver (the liver) has been eaten up. Patients are very shocked, How is it possible? Year
then just do the medical check-ups and the results were all normal.

How is it possible only within a relatively short period of one year of liver cancer can grow so big?
It turns out check-ups are done only to check liver function.

The results also showed a normal examination.
Examination of liver function is one of the most careful examination items known by the public. But this item is also the most misunderstood by our society.

In general, people assume that if the index liver function tests showed normal numbers mean there is no problem with the heart.

But this view led to the emergence of sad stories because of the loss of opportunity since the early-stage cancer detection.

Doctor Hsu said, GOT and GPT are the most common enzymes in the liver cells. If there is inflammation of the liver or for one reason or other reasons so that the liver cells die, the GOT and GPT will run out. This causes the content of GOT and GPT in the blood meningkat.Tetapi absence of GOT and GPT increase in numbers does not mean there is no hardening of the liver or absence of liver cancer.

For many people with liver inflammation, although the inflammatory condition of their hearts have stopped, but in the liver (liver), they have formed the fibers and the hardening of the liver. With the formation of hardening of the liver, it would be easier to arise liver cancer.

In addition, in the early stages of liver cancer, liver index will not increase. Because in times of cancer growth, only the cells surrounding the attack so damaged and die. Because of this damage is only a small scale, the number of GOT and GPT might still within normal limits, say ride will not increase rates.

But because many people do not understand this so that the result there are many sad stories.
The main causes of liver damage are:
Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.

Not urinating in the morning.
A diet that is too excessive.
Do not eat breakfast.
Consuming too much medication.
Consuming too much preservatives, additives, dyes, artificial sweeteners.
Unhealthy cooking oil.

As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, it includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.

Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried vegetables should be eaten right away, do not store.

We should prevent this without paying extra. Simply adjust your lifestyle and patterns of daily food. Treatment of eating habits and time condition are very necessary for our bodies to do the absorption and disposal of substances that are not useful in accordance with the schedule.

Pk night 9-11: disposal of substances is not useful / toxic (detoxification) in the antibody system (lymph nodes). During this time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music.

If at that time a housewife is still in a condition
not relaxed such as washing dishes or watching children learn, this can have a negative impact on health.
Evening at 11pm - early morning 1: during the process of detoxification in the liver, should take place in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 1 - 3: de-toxification process in the gall, also took place in a sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5: de-toxification in the lungs. Because it will happen a great cough for cough sufferers during this time. Because the cleaning process (detoxification) had reached the respiratory tract, so no need to take cough medicine so as not to hinder the process of sewage.
Morning 5 -7: de-toxification in the colon, you have to pee in the toilet.

Morning 7-9: absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, must eat breakfast. For people who are sick should eat more in the morning ie before 6:30. Breakfast before 7:30 pk extremely good for those who want to maintain their health. For those who do not eat breakfast hope to change this habit, even still better late breakfast until 9 -10 pk than not eating at all.
