Abstract

Many HIV-infected patients have recourse to alternative therapies freely available on the market. <br>Although marketed as immunity-enhancing herbs, not all have been clinically tested specifically in HIV disease. <br>Some therapies should be used with reservation: those which can promote inflammation should be avoided in HIV disease. <br>Due to the numerous micro-nutrient deficiencies which develop in HIV patients, balanced multivitamin intake should be encouraged. <br>Many complementary therapies can be used in conjunction with registered ARVs : the practitioner should be informed of their usage.
