This guide looks at some of the herbal therapies that HIV-positive people are trying and provides brief overviews of each treatment. The herbs are listed according to names most commonly used in the HIV-community. The herbal products often have several names: the plant’s scientific Latin name; the plant’s common English names; a common name used in its country of origin; and names referring to specific biochemicals that are active in a plant. Throughout this guide, references are made to clinical studies and other research on herbal therapies.
