John is a 50 year old man who has been human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive for 15 years. During this time his medical status had gradually declined in that his immune functioning has decreased and the HIV load (amounts of HIV detected in his blood) increased. These problems have developed even though heís undergoing ongoing all of the medication treatments currently available for suppressing HIV.
Because of his gradually worsening medical status he requested qigong interventions and advice which he enthusiastically followed en total.
John underwent the following interventions for a period of 2 months:
- Basic 8 exercises for 30 minutes each morning
- Supplementary qi gong exercises for 20 minutes each night
- Dietary interventions daily
- Two external qigong treatments each of approximately 40 minutes duration
- For one week he took Master Hongís #1 Tea Herbal Formula
At the end of two months, he underwent repeat testing of all HIV biological parameters as depicted in the table below. Dates of previous tests and results are provided and the most recent results are highlighted in bold.
T Helper Cells are immune cells which coordinate and promote the bodyís ability to prevent or rapidly clear infection. In HIV, T Suppressor cells are problematic when elevated relative to T Helper Cells.
The changes in Johnís tests indicate that both the T Helper Cell numbers and the T Helper to T Suppressor ratios were markedly improved at retesting in May of 2007. Johnís caregivers were very surprised and highly pleased with Johnís improvements.
