Let's start with the facts that UNAIDS is listing:
- As of June 2017, 20.9 million people living with HIV were accessing antiretroviral therapy, up from 17.1 million in 2015
- 36.7 million people globally were living with HIV in 2016.
- At the end of 2016, 19.1 billion US dollars was available for the AIDS response in low- and middle-income countries.
Did you carefully read that?
Nearly 20 billion dollars are not enough to stop the spread of HIV - and even more important than this- UNAIDS estimates that 26.2 billion dollars will be required for the AIDS response in 2020 in low- and middle-income countries, with 23.9 US dollars billion required in 2030. ......WOW! An enormous amount of money considering the fact that 1.8 million people worldwide became newly infected with HIV in 2016. So.... they are not planning to stop the virus, right?
Would it be more eye-opening if I told you that 18 million women and 2 million children under 15 years are living with HIV?
Well, there is a simpler answer to solving this problem which could've saved the lives of 1 million people who died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2016....
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered that bee venom kills the virus while leaving body cells unharmed, which could lead to an anti-HIV vaginal gel and other treatments. And that was 5 YEARS AGO!
The study found that melittin, a toxin found in bee venom, physically destroys the HIV virus, a breakthrough that could potentially lead to drugs that are immune to HIV resistance.
Our hope is that in places where HIV is running rampant, people could use this as a preventative measure to stop the initial infection - Joshua Hood, one of the authors of the study, said in a statement.
Bee venom contains a potent toxin called melittin that can poke holes in the protective envelope that surrounds HIV and other viruses. Large amounts of free melittin can cause a lot of damage. Indeed, in addition to anti-viral therapy, the paper’s senior author, Samuel A. Wickline, MD, the J. Russell Hornsby Professor of Biomedical Sciences, has shown melittin-loaded nanoparticles to be effective in killing tumor cells.
The study shows that melittin loaded onto these nanoparticles does not harm normal cells. That’s because Hood added protective bumpers to the nanoparticle surface. When the nanoparticles come into contact with normal cells, which are much larger in size, the particles simply bounce off. HIV, on the other hand, is even smaller than the nanoparticle, so HIV fits between the bumpers and makes contact with the surface of the nanoparticle, where the bee toxin awaits.
Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope, Hood says. “The melittin forms little pore-like attack complexes and ruptures the envelope, stripping it off the virus.”
So What Happened?
Scientists say that linking this pre-clinical study with the notion that bee venom will come a safe and effective drug is still many years away- if it happens at all. Many pre-clinical drugs fail to become FDA-approved drugs and it's far, far too early to know if this one will succeed or fail.
But, the real question is why FDA didn't approve the future testing of the study? The answer remains unknown.
What About Reversing AIDS? Herbs, Dr. Sebi, and His Sudden Death
Another method who wasn't supported by the "big companies" is by Dr. Sebi.
The basis behind Dr. Sebi’s approach is clearing the body of excessive mucus, which is believed to be the root of all disease. He explains:
Our research reveals that all manifestation of disease finds it genesis when and where the mucous membrane has been compromised. For example, if there is excess mucous in the bronchial tubes, the disease is bronchitis; if it is in the lungs, the disease is pneumonia; in the pancreatic duct, it is diabetes; in the joints, arthritis.
Moreover, mucous in the retina of the eye will cause blindness; if it is found around the thyroid gland, cancer of the thyroid is the result. Basically, a disease will arise in the body wherever there’s an accumulation of this stagnant toxin.
According to Dr. Sebi, blood and starch in the diet are the main reasons we can be overrun with clogging plaque. He believes starch is a chemical that wreaks havoc on health, mainly because it causes acidity within the body. The same with animal products. On the whole, an acid body will create toxic mucous and congest the system — leading to inflammation, whereas an alkaline pH will do just the opposite and support vitality.
You may have guessed by this point that consuming an alkaline diet is key. But Dr. Sebi takes his protocol a step further by recommending fasting, along with taking botanical remedies which detox each cell and replace depleted minerals.
The remedies are classified as natural vegetation cell food and nourish cells at a very deep level. Because of this, many find their appetite disappears when they begin using the botanicals. Dr. Sebi notes:
“Although the natural vegetation cell food compounds were designed to extract mucus from a given area of the body, it is also necessary for the body to be cleansed as a whole. What makes our compounds unique is the manner in which they work to cleanse and nourish the entire body.”
Since there are many who believe that Dr. Sebi, who was not a licensed physician, he became a threat to a multibillion-dollar medical industry that not only relies on continued sickness but also needs it; it profits from it.
70 Patients Cured of AIDS
The myth of Dr. Sebi grew stronger in 1988 after the self-taught herbalist ran ads in the Amsterdam News, the Village Voice and the New York Post noted that "AIDS has been cured." The story goes that the New York State attorney general and New York City Department of Consumer Affairs told Dr. Sebi to remove the ads; he refused and was arrested. The charges leveled against him included practicing medicine without a license, selling products not approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and fraudulently claiming that he could cure AIDS and other diseases. The judge asked Dr. Sebi to bring in one patient who could testify that he had cured him or her of these potentially fatal diseases. He reportedly provided 70 patients and won the case.
Major newspapers didn't cover his death; in fact, major newspapers barely covered his life. Surely a man who not only claims to have cured cancer but also beat a lawsuit alleging that he was a quack by bringing in apparently healed patients into the courtroom would be someone the world would want to hear more from? Newspapers didn't even invest energy in debunking his claims.
On May 28, 2016, Dr. Sebi was arrested at Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport in Honduras for carrying some $37,000 in cash. He was released pending a court hearing, only to be rearrested June 3 by the Ministerio Público, Honduras' version of the FBI, and charged with money laundering. Dr. Sebi remained in custody until Aug. 6, when he was rushed to a local hospital reportedly suffering from complications of pneumonia. Dr. Sebi died en route. He was 82.
Why There’s No HIV Cure Yet
After decades of intense effort, an effective vaccine against HIV is not on the horizon — and, some say, may never be possible. So some AIDS researchers are going passive.
As in passive immunization.
Active immunization is what an effective vaccine does. It stimulates the recipient to make antibodies that protect against a disease. Passive immunization involves the direct injection of antibodies extracted from survivors of a particular infection.
It's an old method of preventing infection when a vaccine isn't available — once used, for instance, to protect at-risk people from hepatitis before vaccines were developed. Instead of the lifelong protection from a really good vaccine, passive immunization is a temporary bulwark against infection.( Source)
So, scientists invented nothing new, but they are referring to an OLD METHOD? Let's applaud that!
Currently, even in the U.S., only 25 percent of HIV-positive people have their viral levels adequately suppressed by treatment. Worldwide, for every two individuals starting treatment, three are newly infected. While there’s no doubt that we’ve made tremendous progress in fighting the virus, we have a long way to go before the word “cure” is not taboo when it comes to HIV/AIDS. Or if it's even available to those who are infected.
