Abstract:
HIV infection can not only contribute to malnutrition but also susceptibility to various other infections. As a result, HIV patients generally suffer with diarrhoea, fever, nausea, vomiting, mouth ulcers, loss of appetite and loss of weight. Unani System of Medicine focuses on the importance of dietary pattern of an individual for a good quality life as Ilaj bil Ghiza (Dietotherapy) is one of the modes of treatments in Unani. A balanced nutrition as per the Mizaj of the patient can control the progression of this disease and can strengthen the immune system of an HIV patient to deal with HIV and its associated symptoms and to avoid opportunistic infections (OTIs).

Unani dietary pattern serves as a good option in HIV patients those who are undergoing treatment with ART (Anti-Retroviral therapy) as the well-known side effects of ART and its toxicity which causes lipodystrophy and wasting syndrome resulting in the lean look and slim appearance of HIV patients.

Citrus fruits and Vitamin C rich fruits like Amla (Indian Gooseberry) and Guava has found to be very beneficial to boost the immune system. Fruits like Pomegranate and Figs have served as Blood Purifier as per Unani concept. Vegetables which are Anti-oxidants like Onion and Garlic have found be very effective in strengthening the immune system.

HIV AIDS treatment is not complicated, knowing what drugs you are taking, how they work against HIV, and why it is so important to take them as prescribed (on time, with or without food, etc.) can really help in the fight against HIV. HIV AIDS treatment is safer, if your treatment consists of toxic free, side-effect free medications. HIV AIDS treatment becomes more comfortable, if your treatment doesn’t ask for switching on to new drug combination because of drug resistance.
