doTERRA Essential Oil Support For:
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the final stage of HIV disease, which causes severe damage to the immune system.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes AIDS. The virus attacks the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to a variety of life-threatening infections and cancers.
Common bacteria, yeast, parasites, and viruses that usually do not cause serious disease in people with healthy immune systems can cause fatal illnesses in people with AIDS.
HIV has been found in saliva, tears, nervous system tissue and spinal fluid, blood, semen (including pre-seminal fluid, which is the liquid that comes out before ejaculation), vaginal fluid, and breast milk. However, only blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk have been shown to transmit infection to others.
The virus can be spread (transmitted):
- Through sexual contact — including oral, vaginal, and anal sex
- Through blood — via blood transfusions (now extremely rare in the U.S.) or needle sharing
- From mother to child — a pregnant woman can transmit the virus to her fetus through their shared blood circulation, or a nursing mother can transmit it to her baby in her breast milk
Other methods of spreading the virus are rare and include accidental needle injury, artificial insemination with infected donated semen, and organ transplantation with infected organs.
HIV infection is NOT spread by:
- Casual contact such as hugging
- Participation in sports
Touching items that were touched by a person infected with the virus
AIDS begins with HIV infection. People who are infected with HIV may have no symptoms for 10 years or longer, but they can still transmit the infection to others during this symptom-free period. If the infection is not detected and treated, the immune system gradually weakens and AIDS develops.
Almost all people infected with HIV, if they are not treated, will develop AIDS. There is a small group of patients who develop AIDS very slowly, or never at all. These patients are called nonprogressors, and many seem to have a genetic difference that prevents the virus from significantly damaging their immune system.
The symptoms of AIDS are mainly the result of infections that do not normally develop in people with a healthy immune system. These are called opportunistic infections.
People with AIDS have had their immune system damaged by HIV and are very susceptible to these opportunistic infections.
Those with AIDS have noticed:
- Sweats (particularly at night)
- Swollen lymph glands
AIDS is a pandemic in the world today and it is estimated that over 30 million people in the world are infected. In the United States it was the number one killer of young adults and by 2009 this has been reduced to number six.
There is no cure for AIDS at this time. However, a variety of all natural support is available that can help keep symptoms at bay and improve the quality of life for those who have already developed symptoms.
Although the literature indicates that, to date, no antiviral agents have been found that will defeat the HIV there are a number of ways to consider that doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils can help.
