Researchers from Seoul, Korea led by Prof. Cho Young-Keol of the College of Medicine at the University of Ulsan conducted a study on three HIV carriers who contracted the disease in 1987, 1988 and 1992, respectively. They wanted to examine the effect of red ginseng on the patients’ immune system and whether it will delay the development and progression of the infection into AIDS. Their study was groundbreaking as were the results.
The subjects were instructed to take 6000mg. of red ginseng every day, without taking HIV vaccines and medicines. This natural approach led to a stronger immune system and the patients didn’t go on to develop AIDS which is simply astonishing. Their research and the results were published in the latest edition of the AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses , a US journal dedicated on breakthroughs in HIV treatments. According to the study, red ginseng is a revolutionary alternative treatment for HIV patients, which is proving to be highly effective. The study’ leader Prof. Cho says that an Australian patient suffering from HIV survived for 29 years without taking HIV vaccines. He adds:
“One of the Korean HIV carriers has survived 25 years now. The carrier could survive longer than the Australian because his immune system has improved since taking red ginseng.”
These results are remarkable if we take into consideration the fact that just a handful of patients suffering from HIV managed to survive over 30 years after the initial infection. Usually HIV patients survive an average of 11 years without taking the HIV vaccines.
It seems that the red ginseng leads to permanent damage to the genetic code of the virus, blocking the advancement of the disease. According to a number of other studies, long-term consumption of red ginseng is highly beneficial in boosting the immune system and increasing the stamina. It’s also beneficial in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, memory loss and ADHD disorder, sexual dysfunction and according to this latest research prevention of HIV progression.
The team of researchers stated that it’s still early to make definite conclusions, further studies are needed to confirm their findings but the results so far are very promising. It may be that medicine is finely on the verge of a major breakthrough in the field of the deadly HIV virus.
