Medicinal Plants for HIV/AIDS


Science continues to grapple with the issue of HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). We recently heard how close they are to finding a cure. However, we have, in fact, heard this many times before.

While they work to find the elusive cure, the work of someone like Dr Sebi, who several decades earlier, won a court case proving he cures HIV/AIDS, continues to go unnoticed by the mainstream media. Dr Sebi’s emphasis was on the use of herbs to heal the body from any affliction, including HIV/AIDS.

The value of using medicinal plants for HIV/AIDS should not be ignored. Below is a table compiled by M. Krishnaveni published in the Journal of Pharmacy Research 2012,5(12),5367-5379, providing a list of plants that have shown anti-HIV properties and the active components in most of these plants.
