HIV AIDS

Thursday 21-Nov-2019, 7:21AM / 3548

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus .It is a virus that infects humans and damages the immune systems thereby allowing opportunistic infections to come in and attack the body.

AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome .It occurs when the immune system lymphatic power has been lowered to the point that it can’t resist infections.

HIV   belongs to a group of RNA (Ribonucleic acid) Virus known as RETRO VIRUS which are capable of changing their RNA to DNA by using an enzyme called REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE.

HIV destroys the white blood cells called Helper T Cells. HIV can remain dormant in human cells for years and replicates itself as human cells divide.

Eventually, HIV becomes active ,producing many viruses causing the bursting and killing of the Helper T Cells, thus the body immune system is greatly destroyed thereby giving room for opportunistic infections to manifest (such as Tuberculosis, Skin Cancer, Herpes (itching, burning sensation, and oral or genital blisters), Pneumonia etc).

WAYS BY WHICH HIV IS TRANSMITTED

1.      Having unprotected sexual intercourse with infected person.
2.      Through sharing sharp or pointed objects with infected person.
3.      Transfusion of infected Blood or Blood products.
4.      From infected mother to her unborn baby during pregnancy or delivery.

WAYS BY WHICH HIV IS NOT TRANSMITTED

1.      Sneezing
2.      Mosquito bite.
3.      Touching.
4.      Utensils sharing
5.      Holding or shaking of hands.

WAYS OF PREVENTING HIV INFECTIONS

1.      Abstinence from all forms of unprotected sexual intercourse
2.      Being faithful to one uninfected sexual partner.
3.      Consistent and correct use of condom.
4.      Do not share sharp and skin piercing instruments (Clipper, Blade, Needle, String, etc) with people.
5.      Avoid transfusion with an infected person.
6.      During pregnancy, it is essential for an infected mother to use anti-retroviral therapy religiously, while she is advised to deliver her baby in a Clinic that has HIV/AIDS facilities. This is to give room for the health personal to administer preventive drugs on the child not later than 72 hours after delivery.

Comment: My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail.

Comment: God is wonderful. It still feels incredible that my life has changed. I thank Dr Amber everyday and I’m hugely grateful for his help. It is the best feeling in the world knowing that I am financially secure. Dr Amber prayed and prepared a lottery spell for me and gave me some numbers to play the lottery game. I played the set for life lottery game as Dr Amber instructed with my full hopes and trust on him to win it because I have never been known for winning anything. I was shocked, surprised and couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing when I checked my ticket at the shop I bought it from. I was declared the winner of the set for life lottery of $67,500,000! I stopped working as a midwife after I won and ever since then, my life and that of my family has changed and I want to say a very big thank you to Dr Amber for making a tremendous change in my life. WA Dr Amber for help via +12096910783 or call +13183065044 For more enquiries or you email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com.

Comment: Have you been trying to conceive? You've been doing it the absolute wrong way. Believe me, you have to try this. I'm Sarah Weston. I'm from Wisconsin, USA. Married for 11 years with infertility, my infertility journey has ended with the help of Lord Krish Spiritual. I have joined many infertility journey blogs online just to have a comforted heart over my problem and this has helped me to find the right man to help me cure this devastating problem. As a patient of endometriosis stage 3, it was really difficult to have a child but with the help of Lord Krish I got fertile and conceived within days of herbal treatment and before I knew it, I was finally pregnant. I never believed it was possible after 11 years of marriage. Thanks to everyone who has helped me both mentally and emotionally through this journey. Lord Krish solved my problem for me and I promise to manifest his work to other people and friends. Email Lord Krish at lordkrishshrine@gmail.com.

I messaged the spell caster called Dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 28 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 28 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much.

Comment: My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what's app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help.

Comment: Thank you for letting me post my review on your blog. I am very happy to share my insight working with DR AMBER. I needed help to win the lottery so badly because my bills were so high and needed to be paid as soon as possible. While I was surfing the Internet for ways to win the lottery, I saw DR AMBER'S website: AMBERLOTTOTEMPLE.COM saying how he has helped a lot of people in different ways both financially/martially. I ordered a lottery spell from DR AMBER and he explained everything to me about the spell and I accepted. I followed his instructions and played the lottery with the numbers he gave me. After 5 days, his magical spell made me a winner of 87 MILLION DOLLARS. Now, I am financially buoyant that no bill scares me anymore. I want to thank DR AMBER for his endless help and he's from the United States. For urgent response, call or text +1 808-481-5132 or email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com.

Comment: I just want to say that you are the best!!! After reading and applying for your love spell, My boyfriend that left me a few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and After 2days, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him. We moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since this caster helped me, my husband is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. Here his contact. WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 , Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com , His website:http://unityspelltemple.website2.me.

Comment: Both HSV1 and HSV2 can cause “genital herpes”. Up to 80% of Americans have HSV1, which is usually associated with “cold sores” around the mouth, but can also be transmitted to the genitals via oral sex. Up to 30% of new cases of genital herpes are due to HSV1 – and most of the time, it’s been transmitted via oral sex. Since most people (up to 80% of Americans) have HSV1 – whether or not they ever have noticeable cold sores – and since most people do not use any sort of “protection” during oral sex, it’s actually becoming more and more common for people to get herpes on their genitals from oral sex. contact ,doctorvoke1@gmail.com the only herbal doctor that had found the permanent cure for these diseases.
