/ I know people who test positive who were very sick until they started taking the anti-AIDS drugs and got better. How do you explain that?

 

Many of the drugs used to treat “HIV positive” individuals, especially the class of drugs called protease inhibitors, have broad antimicrobial and antifungal properties. In other words, the idea that these drugs are strictly antiviral and active only against HIV and nothing else is false.

Any beneficial side-effects often occur in the absence of any or little effect on conventional markers of immune health such as t-cell counts or viral load measurements, indicating that something other than an antiviral effect is at play.
