    Check this out!! It destroys the HIV VIRUS!!!


    HOPE PAMPLET FOR HIV PATIENTS

    (Resource centers)

    Curing HIV with Orange Juice

    Depending on what cycle you're in

    1 day
    1 week
    1 month

    Using natural orange juice with pulp for
    2 days on a cycle can destroy the HIV virus...

    Basically flooding the body with excess OJ
    will raise your pH and destroy the virus.

    A quart of orance juice per day...

    Once infected, ingest 1/2 a quart immediately.

    Then one glass an hour or so afterwards...

    DON'T drink the whole quart all at once,
    you'll have a stomach ache.

    It takes time to flow through your immune system.

    AVOID any dairy products or anything that could
    contradict the pH raise.

    The second day immediately start your day with
    another full glass and every hour or so continue..,..

    BE SURE to avoid heavy exercise while infected,
    This helps to AVOID the spread in your body.

    If FRESHLY infected...

    One cycle will typically destroy the virus!!!

    Be sure to get tested again.... Always!

    If infected over time..... A month or more....
    Be sure to cycle ON and OFF the orange juice

    Over flooding the immune system with orange juice
    OVER TIME could hinder it. So be sure to cycle on and off.

    Give your Immune System time to digest and HEAL!!!....

    Wait a couple of days!...

    Then continue a 2 day cycle to destroy the virus!

    With this hope, you could be the next cured patient!!!!!


    BE SURE to get tested again!!!


    Tip
    Make it a routine to have a glass or two of orange juice
    after a session. The pH helps destroy any virus or bacteria.

    Precautions

    *Be sure the orance juice is natural and has pulp (Avoid flavored or artificial OJ)
    *What brand of orange juice matters, go with most natural & higher pH values.
    *AVOID all dairy products on this cycle
    *Don't excercise during this cycle, to avoid the spread
    *Don't ingest excess amounts of OJ over LONG (months) periods of time, stomach ulcers
    *When getting tested, for accurate readings be sure not to flood your system with anything.

    Scruffy, I related to your story all too well. I think most of the jokes made about AIDS come from people who are too young to understand that real trauma those of us went through during that horrible time. I lost so many friends..watching them wither away to shells of what they once were. The images of their pain and suffering is something I will never forget. There is absolutely NOTHING even remotely funny about AIDS.

    I am surprised that this thread is still going on And happy as well.

    There are words that need to be heard, There are thoughts that need to be shared.

    Most importantly there is Hope that needs to be spread.

    tnj's GROSS misunderstanding of My point is irrelevant.

    We are ALL Survivors here. Even the 20-somethings who don't yet realize just how much they survived. And how many bullets they dodged.

    Scruffy and I did not always get along and often disagreed - but I consider Him a friend - and I hope the feeling is mutual.

    Thanks Scruffy - this story and thread takes REAL Guts.

    And thanks to all of You Guys who stand up everyday and say "I ain't giving in - not TODAY."

    You Guys are some of the BEST on the Planet!!!

    Mikal

    THIS IS A REPOST FROM ANOTHER THREAD WHERE LUCKY350 ALSO POSTED HIS ADVICE

    Well, Orange Juice can certainly be part of a healthy diet (in moderation). I know. I'm originally from Florida and I FUCKING LOVE FRESH SQUEEZED ORANGE JUICE!!!!

    "Curing HIV with Orange Juice"? Wow! That's a pretty incredible claim. Lucky350, can you share your source for this information so that those of us who are HIV+ can corroborate this claim?

    @All - While we're waiting on Lucky350's response, I urge those of us who are HIV+ to remain vigilant in our physician prescribed treatment regimens along with safer sex practices which include condom use. And, for those who are not infected with HIV, I urge you to continue to consider safer sex practices which include condom use...because HIV is not the only STD which can be caught.

    Over the past 29 years, I've heard of all kinds of wonderful "cures" and I have yet to see one which definitively ends the HIV epidemic once and for all. I do have hope that one day a cure will come, and until that day when there is a medically proven cure, I will continue to be vigilant.

    @Lucky350 - You have posted this same, unsupported information in multiple threads. I urge you to post your authoritative reference. Although orange juice can be healthy, it is irresponsible to claim that orange juice is a cure for HIV without clinical evidence. You may, unintentionally, be causing harm to human life with less than clinically proven claims.

    I cried the first time I read Scruffy's post and now I've cried the second time. I've always felt that getting married saved my life. Living in SF during the height of the Aids Epidemic most likely would not have ended well. So many of my generation are gone and we can only hold their memories as the pioneers of who we are today.

    I often stroll to Golden Gate Park to visit the Aids Memorial Garden. The solace and peace there allows for reflection and gratitude to those who suffered so badly. I'll think of Ken next time I'm there.

    I agree. It would also seem almost too good to be true that simply raising pH levels is the cure everyone's been searching for. And would drinking mass OJ quantities be the only way to achieve it? Couldn't the pH be raised and monitored reliably under more clinical and controlled circumstances?

    I suppose it could be considered an emergency morning-after approach, after having unprotected sex, in case your sex partner was poz, until you could see a doctor. IF this could in any way work, AND you had strong evidence you'd been exposed. Because no test will detect the presence of HIV sooner than 1 week, and then only with the most expensive method known. Whereas more common HIV tests will reveal nothing for 3 to 6 months.

    All of which makes the OJ cure sound a bit dubious. I agree we need to hear the science behind this claim.
