Glutathione Helps People Infected With HIV-AIDS

Human immunodeficiency virus, commonly known as HIV is a retrovirus that leads to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The immune system of a person suffering from HIV /AIDS gradually starts weakening and deteriorating, finally failing to resist diseases.

HIV is present in the form of free virus particles as well as virus in within the infected immune cells of the body fluids. The HIV infection is passed from one person to the other though the direct contact of infected body fluids. However, the main means through which HIV is transferred is through unsafe intercourse with an infected person, contaminated needles, breast milk and from an infected mother to her child.

HIV infection is spreading at a very fast pace infecting more and more number of people with each passing day. According to a latest estimation, about 0.6% of the total population of the world is infected with HIV, of which most of the people belong to Africa.

HIV starts spreading in the body, by mainly infecting the vital cells of the human immune system. The number of cells start declining and the body starts to loose its immunity due to which the body starts to become more prone to the different infections and diseases.

If the needed treatment is not available, then most of the people infected with HIV, develops AIDS in the long run which comes to an end along with death. Treatment with antiretroviral helps in increasing the life expectancy of people infected with HIV.

At present there is no complete cure or vaccine known for HIV (AIDS). The only protection from HIV is avoiding getting infected by the virus. However, antiretroviral treatment is believed to reduce the risk of the infection being spread if the treatment is started soon after exposure to the infection. Studies have shown that it is easier to control and treat children infected with HIV compared to adults.

Glutathione is an essential tripeptide present in our bodies. It is the body's own master antioxidant, detoxifier and immune booster.

Studies and researches conducted for many years have suggested that, with an increased level of glutathione in the body, HIV infected patients can improve their survival with the help of glutathione.

If the HIV infected patients have sufficient level of glutathione in the body, the body's master antioxidant, detoxifier and immune booster can prove to be beneficial for HIV patients to a great extent.

Studies and researches have shown that patients infected with HIV were having lower levels of glutathione in the body or were suffering from glutathione deficiency. Also due to depletion of glutathione in the body, the progression of the HIV infection in the body was faster which reduced the survival period of the infected persons.

Therefore, if a person infected with HIV maintains and improves the glutathione level in the body, it will prove to be of great help for him/her as the progression pace of the infection will be reduced and the survival period will also be improved.

Dr. Robert Keller, the formulator of MaxGXL, created it specifically to treat the patients in his clinic in Hollywood, Florida. Dr. Keller's patients are typically immuno-affected with AIDS, Hepatitis C or Cancer.

Dr. Keller has created a non toxic, inexpensive HIV/AIDS treatment that was designed specifically to addresses the huge HIV/AIDS crisis that exists in Africa and other 3rd world locations.

Overview & Facts About HIV/AIDS Disease

HIV is simply the virus that causes AIDS while AIDS is the viral disease caused by HIV. HIV means Human Immunodeficiency Virus while AIDS means Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. The virus that causes AIDS is a special one because it is not just a virus but a retro-virus that replicates in a fraction of seconds and attacks the human immune system severely. The immune system contains biological "soldiers" known as antibodies that fight against diseases. The weakening of the immune system makes the human body vulnerable to opportunistic infections including tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. I suppose you know what I have just said about HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS is transmitted through the exchange of blood directly or indirectly from an infected person to another person. The use of unsterilized sharp instruments such as a needle, razor, injection syringe, and hair clipper can cause the transmission of HIV/AIDS. Unprotected sexual intercourse can cause the transmission of HIV/AIDS. A mother living with HIV/AIDS can transmit to her unborn child through the umbilical cord which connects the mother and the unborn child. Blood transfusion can also lead to transmission of HIV/AIDS if the transfused blood is infected with HIV/AIDS. So there are only four known ways through which you can contact the virus that causes AIDS. There's no way you can contact HIV through mosquito bites, having a hand shake with someone that is infected, hugging, kissing, and sharing personal effects such as towel and clothes with someone that is living with the virus.

The only way you can find out whether you have contacted the virus is through having a blood test. And you have to go for the blood test from time to time, at least twice in a year, because the virus has an incubation period of about 3-6 months. If you are not yet married abstinence from sexual intercourse is the best option for you but if you cannot abstain you have to protect yourself with condom. Then if you are married you just have to be faithful to your partner - stick to him or her because he or she has got whatever you are looking for out there. You have to make sure that you avoid unprotected sexual intercourse, and other ways of getting infected with the disease. I also think that you know these things I have just said about HIV/AIDS.

But there is one thing you don't know about HIV/AIDS. What you don't know is that HIV/AIDS kills slower than the stigma attached to it by some people in our various societies. Yes you heard me well. Stigmatization has killed more people living with HIV/AIDS than the virus or the disease itself. Some people living with HIV/AIDS have been rejected by their families and friends simply because they tested positive to the virus. Some people living with the virus have lost their jobs simply because they are living with the virus. I can go and on to tell you what some people have been passing through because of the fact that they are living with HIV/AIDS. Some of them have committed suicide because they thought they could not live to face the stigma. More and more people living with HIV/AIDS have died as a result of stigmatization or the psychological trauma that follows the disease.

You have to show love to these people living with HIV/AIDS. You have to show that their families and friends still want them. You have to show them that the society still wants them irrespective of the fact that they are living with HIV/AIDS. You have to let these people know that they are not less human because of their medical condition. You have to let them know that living with HIV/AIDS is not the end of the world. Let them know that they can still live a normal life though they are living with HIV/AIDS. As a matter of fact, anybody can live with the virus so you have no right to stigmatize anybody because of HIV/AIDS.
