I've been researching online about the problems of inflammation that hiv causes over many years thus making the probability of getting cancer and heart disease much higher than in a hiv - person. I want persons living with the virus for years esp decades give us newbies some important tips of the type of anti inflammatory foods etc they incorporate in their diet that has been doing a wonderful job in keeping them fully healthy from this constant problem. Beetroot, cantelope, probiotics? Do these really help?

Thanks Jim that's so lovely. That's one of the major thing to worry about and if they can incorporate anti inflammation army that into medication it would make a world of different for many!

  • red pill? or blue pill?
Rizzy - we can eat lots of whole foods - fresh. Exercise. Fresh air. Screw a lot. Touch. 

Anxiety, stress and depression can cause inflammation.  Such as might result from endless detailing of research into HIV and all the things that could go wrong and all the things that might be necessary or might not, for that matter.  Don't know how far you are going in your learning project but there comes a point where one puts it aside for the most part, and puts one's energy into life and living well.  Friends, lovers, family and JOB.  Job is really important, if one works, that is. 

Most of us diagnosed in recent years should be planning on middle age and retirement and the thing one wants is financial security and a sense of a life lived well.
