Hi Mark. SO glad to hear you have given up alcohol. Click here to read an earlier thread which might help remind you that alcohol is clearly not the best thing for us poz folks  Also good to hear you drink green tea. People underestimate its power because it looks like some innocuous clear green gentle liquid - but, as the saying goes, "still waters run deep" ... Another good adaptogen is american ginseng which supposedly has more adaptogenic properties when compared to siberian or korean


Hi Mark,
Another option you might look into is to see if there is a Practitioner of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in your area. I see a acupuncturist who also has a degree in TCM in herbology and nutrition.

TCM perspective on nutrition is very internesting, and has a different view than conventional medicine.
