What is AIDS?
AIDS or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is caused by a virus called HIV. HIV or human immunodeficiency virus) interferes with the body’s ability to fight infections and disease.
HIV can be discovered in the fluids of the infected person, such as in semen, blood, breast milk, vaginal fluids, etc.
It is a potentially life-threatening sexually transmitted infection (STI). But, it also may spread through infected blood while using needles or syringes or during pregnancy (from mother to child) or breastfeeding. Without treatment, AIDS may interfere with the body’s ability to function well and fight against infection and disease.
Most people with AIDS may develop flu-like signs within four weeks after the virus enters the body. Possible signs and symptoms that may appear include:
- Muscle aches and joint pain
- Sore throat
- Painful mouth sores
- Swollen lymph glands, mainly on the neck
- Weight loss
- Night sweats
The signs can range from mild to moderate and may vary from person to person. One thing being sure, the amount of viruses in the bloodstream is largely high in the body. In response to this, it progresses a little early and easily during the primary infection.
In this stage, HIV is still located in white blood cells. However, symptoms may or may not be visible at this time. The stage usually lasts for longer, even without signs.
Symptomatic HIV infection
By this stage, the virus continues to grow rapidly and destroy the healthy immune cells in the body. You may catch signs including:
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Weight loss
- Oral yeast infection
AIDS is caused by a virus which can spread through sexual contact or infected blood, or pass from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth or breast-feeding. You can have an HIV infection, with a few or no signs, for years before it actually causes you AIDS.
Ayurvedic treatment for AIDS at AyuKarma
As per Ayurveda, AIDS is an occurrence of low Ojas (low immunity). If your immunity is low, likely your body’s self-healing capacity deteriorates. As this happens, the body is susceptible to many other infections and disorders, including AIDS. Environmental exposure to contagious infections may further lower your immunity, and this allows the bacteria to stay in the body for a long time.
There is no cure for HIV/AIDS in allopathy, but ayurvedic medications can help slow down the progression of the disease. Ayurveda is an old age science known to have evidence-based therapies and procedures to boost immunity and ensure vitality.
