The Man who Defeated HIV?

In November 2008 doctors in Berlin reported a case that sent shock waves throughout the HIV community. Doctors of the Berlin Charité had managed to eradicate HIV in one of their patients. This patient, referred to as, “The Berlin patient” caused a worldwide stir and remained anoymous until now.
Timothy Ray Brown is a 44 year old man who was diagnosed as HIV positive in 1995. Subsequently, in the summer of 2006 he developed leukemia. Doctors in Berlin treated him with stem cell therapy, locating a donor who had an HIV-resistant immune system.
The result, Brown was cured of his leukemia and HIV.
Timothy’s case is an isolated incident which has not been duplicated. However, it does open the door to the possibility of gene therapy.

    OMGosh… I wish I knew a place where I could be a guinea pig for some type of testing on resistant strains of virus as well as my own material make up…

    I believe it is possible for some to willfully, if not eradicate it, at least suppress it…

    …and if not that, at least give it a good few decades run for it’s money by positive visualization along with conventional medication and general good health behavior.

    not “positive” visualization, but actual visualization aimed at the internal systems and the virus itself. And other mental/psychic/meditative practices or however you want to call them…
