New research in AIDS HIV

The HIV infection is capable under the most favorable conditions endeavors to flush it from the human body, thus the absence of a cure, yet another examination recommends that this accomplishment may one day be conceivable. Analysts demonstrated they could dispense with HIV from tainted cells in creatures utilizing the effective quality altering apparatus, CRISPR/Cas9. In the investigation, now distributed online in Molecular Therapy, researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) and the University of Pittsburgh prevailing with regards to expelling HIV DNA from the genomes of living creatures — a noteworthy advance toward a cure, they said. The group utilized CRISPR quality altering innovation to expel HIV from the DNA of three diverse creature models, including a mouse that was transplanted with a "refined" safe framework.

This leap forward implies that the group have started to handle a genuine obstacle in the race to cure HIV. The following stage is rehash the outcomes in primates to check whether they can wipe out HIV DNA in idly tainted T cells, and other HIV "forts, for example, cerebrum cells.  For the examination, the group based on past confirmation of-idea look into from 2016 that showed the capacity to target and expel pieces of HIV from the genome of most tissues in trial creatures. Presently, the group has made this a stride further, expelling the dormant HIV from DNA from the tissues of living creatures. To quantify the accomplishment of their endeavor, the group utilized a live bioluminescence imaging framework to gauge levels of HIV RNA.

In its idle frame, the infection can lie torpid, implying that it has ceased the generation of new HIV cells, however can move toward becoming reactivated indiscriminately, Aids Info announced. Notwithstanding, when HIV-tainted cells are not currently delivering the infection, HIV pharmaceutical has no impact on them. This is the thing that makes it particularly hard to totally flush the infection out of the body. As indicated by Aids Info, discovering approaches to target and devastate these idle repositories of HIV are basic to making sense of an approach to clear the infection from the body, and quality treatment is at the front line of this hunt. In quality treatment medicines, for example, that done in this examination, researchers control qualities keeping in mind the end goal to either remove or deactivate HIV in contaminated resistant cells.

Treatment of AIDS and HIV

The initial symptom of the AIDS is depression, diarrhea,and severe taste; this is one of the initial symptoms which demands check-up. If your body has become a carrier of the HIV, then your body will try to fight the infection, but due to HIV,the immunity of your body is not capable enough to compete correctly. Thus antibiotics, drugs are made to fight HIV which works against HIV infection.

 The Allopathic medicines and drugs are scientifically proven that they are capable of competing against HIV and helps in strengthening the immune system of a person. 

So you are required to consult a professional doctor if you want to cure HIV AIDS.
Although there is no perfect cure available that can eradicate HIV. But, still, there are methods through which a person can fight with HIV, which also helps in reducing its replication to an extent. Below are some of the proven treatments for HIV:

ART (antiretroviral therapy): This is the most common treatment used for the treatment of the HIV AIDS. This is recommended for almost every patient infected with HIV. The patient has to take the medicines daily and as prescribed by the doctor but if a person refuses to take daily drugs and is irregular then the therapy is bound to fail against HIV AIDS. As said above there is no medicine which can completely cure HIV AIDS still ART is a therapy which will help a person to live longer a better life with less infection.  

HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy): Protease is a drug which has revolutionized the way of treatment which has been used before for an HIV patient. This is a drug which has to be taken along with the other two drugs which are known as transcriptase inhibitors.

HAART is a treatment of hardly two to three months; it helps a person to regain their immune system and stabilizes it to be able to work again. After HAART the immune system gets stronger,and with time the white, red patches start fading,and you can see the effects on your body. If all goes well,the patients begin getting normal and once again they are able to live a good life.

Combination therapy and the surgical treatment of HIV AIDS:
The combination therapy is similar to ART therapy and HAART, in which a patient has to take the drugs also to the inhibitor and here the patient receives more than one pills at a time.  In combination therapy, the patient has to strictly follow the schedule of taking medications as prescribed by the doctors else it may affect the patient's health and the patient can get strains. 

The ART,HAART combination therapies are commonly used for the patients which include anti –HIV drugs like protease inhibitor which includes drugs like darunavir, atazanavir,and ritonavir. 

Surgical treatment of the HIV AIDS
There are various surgical treatments for a patient having HIV AIDS. The surgical procedure of the HIV AIDS is still understudying,and professionals are researching on the surgical procedure of the HIV AIDS. A doctor’s plan to cure HIV AIDS when it is present mostly in tumors which are associated with HIV AIDS and can be very dangerous to a person’s health. In such circumstances, the doctor decides on surgery while the surgery is not the only way to treat the HIV AIDS patients but as discussed above the highly active retroviral therapy allow a person to live longer in a better way.

It depends upon the condition of the patient that whether there is a need for a surgical operation or not.
Like in case of the unpredicted increase in the size of lymph node, a doctor has to biopsy a person, and if it is a tumor, then the doctor can decide to have surgery because it is not cured on time then it will allow a person to live just for two or three months.

Various anti-HIV AIDS drugs:
Viramune is the first inhibitor which has been approved in the 1996 and taken in cooperates with the other drugs. The second transcriptase inhibitor is the Rescriptor which gets adopted to fight against HIV in 1996,and the third drug is the Sustiva was approved in 1998.    

Other anti-HIV drugs are Viracept, Norvir, Crixivan and many other approved allopathic drugs are there to help the patients who are suffering from the HIV AIDS disease. 

There are mainly five transcript inhibitors which are helpful in thetreatment of the HIV AIDS,and these five are didanosine, stavudine, zidovudine, zalcitabine and lamivudine which are taken in combination with the other drugs which are anti-HIV drugs and reduce the infection caused by HIV.
There are also various types of the drugs which help in theretroviral treatment of a person. There are primary six classes of drugs for the treatment of the HIV AIDS. 

The six are:
Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors: It targets the transcript in reverse and stops it from replicating. 

Protein inhibitor:as the name suggests this attacks the HIV protein directly.
NNRTI (non- Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors): It targets the reverse transcript but in adifferent way than NNTI. 

Integrase inhibitors: It stopsHIV from integrating the DNA and attacks on HIV protein.     
Fusion inhibitors: It stops the HIV from coming to cells.

CCR5: These don’t work on each. So they should not be given to anybody. 

There are also a lot of other treatments present and other drugs for helping a patient who is suffering from the HIV AIDS. But a lot of studies have proven that there is not any method which can fully cure the HIV AIDS not even the ART and the HAART which are commonly used in thetreatment of a patient with the HIV AIDS. These drugs or therapies just enhance the living of a person, help in making stronger the immune system, reduce the bacterial infection and cause a person to live longer and give a better life to a person while there is no medicine or treatment which can fully cure HIV AIDS. So if you are not a carrier of the HIV AIDS, then you should take protection. 

Holistic Management of HIV AIDS
Apart from conventional allopathic treatment there are many treatments available which can be used as complimentary to conventional medicine. Some are:
- Homeopathy
- Ayurved and Herbs
- Counseling and Psychotherapy
- Naturopathy
- Yoga 

As there are many methods of treatment of HIV AIDS and it depends upon the condition of the patient that which way is used to reduce the infection created by the HIV.

Homeopathic Treatment for AIDS and HIV

 The HAART drugs are considered as the treatment of choice for HIV infected people. However currently about 25% of people with HIV infection are resistant to conventional anti retroviral treatment. This has created the need for alternative medications and therapy for a significant number of people with HIV infection.

The basic approach of homeopath is different from conventional drug therapies. The conventional drug therapies work by attacking the microbial agents or by interfering with their growth and multiplication. However, the homeopathic medicines possibly boost a person’s immune and defense system to help the person control the infection.

Homeopathy is known to be successful in the treatment of various infectious diseases in man, including several serious and potentially fatal infectious diseases. Studies on homeopathic treatment in people who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive or have AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) has shown that these remedies are useful treatment as a primary or as an adjunctive treatment to conventional therapy or during a structured treatment interruption program.

 Even in people with AIDS or HIV infection in whom the various AIDS drugs are effective, several physicians and patients prefer treatment interruptions also called “drug vacations”. These treatment interruptions are done to decrease the possibility of drug resistance and can last several weeks, months, or years. Homeopathic medicines are preferred during these treatment interruptions.

•    The homeopathic drugs are very effective for treatment of other infections in people with HIV/AIDS.
•    These drugs cause no side effects or any worsening of general health of the patient.
•    Treatment with homeopathic drugs has been shown to boost immunity and decrease the number of virus in the patients with HIV infection.
•    The homoeopathic medicines are effective even in people who have discontinued the conventional treatment due to side effects
•    Homeopathic medicines probably boost immunity, relieve stress, or improve general health and wellbeing of a patient with HIV infection or AIDS.

The medicines that showed efficacy in relieving symptoms are:
•     Nux vom
•     Psorinum
•     Merc sol
•     Syphillinum
•     Medorrhinum
•     Ars alba
•     Aconite
•     Carb Veg
•     Tuberculinum
•     Silicea,
•     Rhus tox  

Caution with homeopathic drugs

The homeopathic drugs are relatively safe and have rare side effects. The homeopathic medicines should be used along with conventional treatment and not in place of the standard treatment for AIDS. It can be used alone in patients on structured treatment interruption program or “drug vacations”.

Treatment of a patient is usually individualized, and the remedies are prescribed based on the symptoms, lifestyle, and emotional and mental states. If you are taking homeopathic medicines for AIDS inform your physician before using homeopathic medicine and similarly tell your homeopath doctor also that you are taking standard treatment for AIDS.

Dietary Precautions and Recommendations for AIDS HIV

People are used to eating food with additives pesticides preservatives bacteria and parasites. One has to exclude these things to have a more organic and fresh diet. Routine food that includes vegetables containing vital nutrients and fiber and a menu that relatively possess less sugar, fats,and alcohol is recommended. The tips that can help someone to be able to have a more efficient food which includes vegetables and fruits as it follows.

Prefer newly harvested over frozen and preserved vegetables
Reduce the intake of fats and sugar.Keep your diet Incline towards organic as much as possible,give a detailed and thorough rubbing and wash treatment of food to remove the pesticides and chemicals used while growing the corps, prefer light steaming for the vegetables as it does not destroy the natural fiber and flavor.

Replace cooking oil with fish oil as cooking oils nowadays include preservatives and other chemicals
besides these, to give a more accurate and complete overview about the dietary and herbal treatment of HIV and Aid, we need to understand the HIV.

In the early stages of infection by HIV, the virus starts demolishing and degrading the CD-4 cells. These CD-4 cells are the basics of our immune system and provide our body the strength to fight against the diseases. As these cells count low, our body becomes susceptible to the diseases. Thus the infected person develops aids.

As the virus starts, the virus kills the CD4 cells it multiplies itself by replication. Primarily the home remedies and all the anti-viral drugs act to counter this replication. 

Severe pain in the head, muscles and body, high temperature, drastic weight loss, cough, loose motions, vomiting and mouth ulcer, are some of the initial symptoms of HIV.

Home remedies for HIV that we are going to describe here are either tested in in laboratory, or these are examined in humans and shown apparent success in increasing CD4 count and thus reducing viral load.

In Asia Neam leaves are used to overcome the viral diseases due to its anti-viral activity, skin diseases like smallpox and chicken pox neem leaves are used in the form of paste and applied to the infected areas,and it absorbs and extracts deadly virus and rapids the process of healing.

Keeping in mind the ant-viral activity of neem leaves research was conducted on HIV patients which paved the way to this outcome that one gram intake (on a daily basis) of a compound extracted from neem leaves increase the cell count to 159% within at least 12 to 15 weeks.

Black seeds derived from the plant known as Nigella sativa primarily small black thick shaped seeds which are slightly curved,these are used widely in numerous homemade remedies in South Asia and many other parts of the world. 

Black seed possesses anti-bacterial, anti-coagulant and mainly anti-viral properties which makeitbe used as a remedy against HIV, a patient diagnosed with HIV symptoms and has reached even at the last stages of HIV can use this remedy to overcome his declining health. An intake black seed mixture of 10-12 ml per day for 6 months.

 A significant improvement regarding theCD-4 count was observed during research with the help of this remedy,i.e., increase 300 to 600 cells per mm. in comparison to any antiviral drug treatment the result of this remedy can be considered substantial. Moreover, the significance of the medication is that no viral load or cd-4 count was observed in the patient after 6 months.

Selenium is a chemical element having atomic no 34 is an antioxidant and is an essential mineral of the human body. Deficiency of selenium in human body leads forward to several diseases. As it is vital and integral part of our immune system. According to a research people (having thelow CD-4 count) who took 200 μg for 8 months got their immunity power back as a depletion in their CD-4 cells was reduced up to 46%.

Green tea is another antioxidant containing abeverage. Besides being so delicious, it has multiple health benefits. Two cup of tea per day reduces fats, cholesterol level, controls hair loss, reduces sugar level in blood and reduces the chances of many diseases due to its antioxidant property.  The EGCG compound present in green tea is the focus of the study nowadays as it protects and prevents the CD-4 cells from making bondage with the HIV. 

Like avise, turmeric is a food supplement that is enriched with many benefits related to the nutrition of the human body. Turmeric is used widely in India for ages as a food additive for adding spice to the meals. But scientists have discovered these benefits now that Indians have known for so long,and one of those benefits is related to with HIV. Its anti-inflammation anti-oxidant and antibiotic properties are the points that make it so useful.  As discussed above the main idea is to stop the replication of the virus,and turmeric stops a protein (TAT) from replication, TAT degrades that protein and stops it from further damage.

Licorice is extracted from the plant name Glycyrrhiza glabra,and this plant is found very commonly in southern and central Russia, and Asia mostly in Iran. This herb used as a remedy for the problems or body disorders like digestion ulcers heartburn and oil.  But is has been examined after experiments that acid produced by these galbra plant is used for the cure of HIV. A daily dose of 1600mg of this liquid to the patient who has HIV decreases the viral antigens significantly.

All of these easy to use and adapt home remedies can prove fruitful as these are described hereafter clinical research. But still, the evidence and analysis for such painful diseases can be considered insufficient. So one should always consult some specialist before trying these home remedies as home remedies have less. Then zero side effect on human body.

Counseling and Psychotherapy Treatment of HIV AIDS

Counseling and Psychotherapy Treatment of HIV AIDS

While HIV is no longer necessarily a life-threatening diagnosis, it is still a life-long condition that will impact your life considerably. Understandably then, you’re bound to feel some psychological impacts.

If you already struggle with some aspects of your mental health, for example if you have suffered depression, anxiety or low self-esteem, getting a diagnosis can make these symptoms worse. If your mental health has been good, you may still find it difficult to adjust to your diagnosis.

Worrying about your future, your health and telling people is all very common. You may find you start to isolate yourself. Sadly, there can still be stigma surrounding HIV as well as a lack of understanding. This can all affect how you feel about yourself.

Getting support

If you find yourself struggling after your diagnosis, isolating yourself, feeling low or bad about yourself, you could benefit from seeking support. You may find it helpful speaking to other people who have HIV. You could join a support group (online or in-person) or you could try group therapy.
You may prefer to speak to a counsellor one-on-one about how you’re feeling. Speaking to someone who has experience treating clients with HIV is beneficial as they will have a greater understanding of what you’re going through and the psychological impacts. You should also speak to your medical team to find out what support they can offer you.

When you are diagnosed with HIV, it’s important to tell your current sexual partner and any partner’s you’ve had since becoming infected. Doing this can be a tough experience; you may feel upset, embarrassed or even angry. Talk this through with your medical team as they can advise who you need to tell and the best way to get in touch - they may even be able to contact them for you.

You may also be wondering whether or not you need to tell your employer. There is no legal obligation to do this unless you are in the armed forces (in a frontline job) or work in a healthcare job where you provide invasive procedures. You may decide to tell your employer what’s happening so they can make any necessary adjustments to your workload or arrange any time off you need for medical appointments. This decision is completely up to you.

Educating people about HIV and what your diagnosis means will hopefully help to ease any fears or concerns they may have. You could even send them the link to this page so they can read more about what HIV is and how it affects people.

Just remember, you are not alone. There are people ready to support you at every step.



Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy Treatment of HIV AIDS

For a person to be afflicted with HIV infection is a grave shock and traumatic experience, since there is little treatment for it available and what is available is in a crucial stage,and a lot of people do not have access to it, it becomes complicated to bear with this chronic illness. Most patient apart from the physical changes also experience behavioral and cognitive changes due to the virus which has significant implications for their psychology and emotional well being. The infection comes with its challenges medical, financial, psychological, social, and spiritual issues in the patients, thus apart from regular medication to treat the illness these also need to be taken into consideration.

Also one of the grave reasons for the impact of HIV/AIDS on patients’ mindset is that the society has a lot of taboos and myths related to HIV,and there is a lack of awareness so when people are diagnosed with HIV or AIDS, they are ostracised at a time in life when they need the most emotional and mental support.  The most common myth is that HIV spreads through casual touch which is proven to be untrue.

Patients often suffer from anxiety, hopelessness,and depression once they are detected with the HIV.  Their immune system is at its weakest, and their mental condition also becomes prone to attacks. They mostly experience, increase in heart rate, night sweats, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting,etc. All these manifest into anxiety and depression. Reduced concentration and general ability also leave the patients at a loss, apart from, this the significant implication of the HIV infection is the stigma and discrimination related to unruly sexual behavior and drug abuse which are the main reasons for contracting the virus. The patients are looked down upon by the society as the ‘others’ who participate in all these illegal activities because of which they believe the patients contracted the disease.

Therefore,counseling is significant while coping with HIV/AIDS; it has to be made mandatory along with regular medical treatment. Firstly, the patients need to have all the essential fundamental information related to the disease, of how they contracted it and how they are at risk of spreading it further. If they aren’t made aware of this, this could become an epidemic. Apart from that counseling also helps them understand their behavioral changes and their reaction to being detected with this virus. If some people have an inkling that they could be affected with an HIV infection, they can smoothly go to a counselor and seek his/her guidance about the testing and treatment procedure in case they don’t want to share it with another known individual. Therapy can do wonders to people who have HIV/AIDS by taking people through the problem-solving process that is, to find solutions, assist in decision making, accept specific inevitable consequences and effects, finding a practical solution and provide the necessary psychotherapy for HIV/AIDS.

The counseling to provided comes in two variants pre-counseling and post counseling. Pre-counselling is for patients who have an already established trust with the therapist he/she can guide them through the symptoms to the test procedure. The post counseling comes into play once the patients are tested positive for the HIV in their system. In this stage, they need full help, assistance,and guidance for them to understand the implications of the infection on their life. Here the counselor helps the patient explore ways to improve their quality of life and deal with the illness to the best of their ability and also reduce the risk of spreading it to other people.In both the stages, it is essential to involve the close support group of the patient for them to also understand the full effects of the infection so that they can help the patient talk freely and also cope with it appropriately.

The need to maintain confidentiality is of prime focus for counselor dealing with HIV patients because of the stigma attached to it in the society. The patients should be able to discuss all details of how they contacted the disease, to the symptoms and the treatment to principal their dignity and protect them against discrimination. Once they share all these details only then, they would be able to understand the infection and get out of it properly.

Hypnotherapy means, using hypnosis as a therapeutic technique. It is stated to be very useful in countering anxiety and depression and is considered one of the most effective treatments for that. It helps in reducing the levels of stress and depression by working on the subconscious levels of the brain.

According to research hypnosis is a great way to improve the quality of life for AIDS patients, who are dealing with this chronic illness. It helps in reducing the stress, depression, emotional turmoil and help them deal with the regular distress of the disease with the changes in their mental landscape. The hypnosis helps remove unwanted troublesome behavior,  it also has positive effects on the immune system, helping the body to cope with the disease.

In conclusion, the impact of every disease can be felt on the mind of the patient apart from the body. Therefore the brain needs as much support, care as the body. Therefore, these techniques like psychotherapy and hypnosis can do wonders to help deal with the disease and also recover by giving mental and emotional strength and also its effects can be seen on the body.

The emotional impact of the infection can be seen very quickly. HIV is related to a lot of stressors on the patients; these include physical illness, shock, depression, medical dilemma, denial,etc. It becomes essential to address the coping skills by the caregivers and providing psychological and hypnosis interventions to HIV/AIDS patients along with medical interventions to understand their mental agony, for better recovery and improving quality of life of these patients and also their family.
