Fig Plants For The Treatment Of HIV?
Hello doctor Citra, I want to ask
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify beforehand, where did you see the article?
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a disease caused by a virus. This virus attacks the human immune system, making it easier to fall ill. Sooner or later, if not treated properly, this virus can continue to eat away at the body, causing dangerous complications, even leading to death. Therefore, rapid and precise detection and treatment is very useful in preventing dangerous complications, while increasing patient life expectancy.
Unfortunately, so far, there is no known definitive treatment that can cure HIV completely. However, several types of antiviral (antiretroviral) drugs are known to suppress the replication of this virus in the body. This treatment is often combined with a variety of other drugs so that patients can return to their activities without obstacles.
Many studies say that the fig plant (Ficus carica L.) has a variety of beneficial pharmacological effects, such as antitumor, antioxidants, antibiotics, antiviral, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory properties. This plant is also thought to facilitate metabolism, control sugar and fat levels in the blood, overcome bleeding, enhance immunity, while also maintaining heart health, blood vessels, and respiratory system.
The nature of this plant as an anti-virus might be interpreted by the article that you read as "able to cure HIV completely" (because the cause is also a virus). But unfortunately, until now, there is no scientific evidence that proves the truth of this. There is also no accurate information related to the potential side effects that can be caused from the consumption of this plant. Therefore, we are not authorized to recommend or prohibit its use.
So that conditions can improve, HIV sufferers should immediately consult a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to be given the best treatment. Avoid using any treatment, especially those that have not clearly tested the benefits and side effects for health.
Hope this helps ...
