Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition
My Journey Fighting HIV with Whole Food Nutrition, Herbs and Spices
By S. Diane Barry
I was diagnosed with HIV in January 2005.
Over twelve years later, I’m healthy and doing well.
I don’t have AIDS. My numbers are great.
I did this without prescription medications.
By fighting HIV with whole food nutrition, herbs, spices, and healthy lifestyle choices.

There are many alternative therapies. I believe that food is the best medicine. Nothing outrageous but a healthy diet of fresh foods, full of nutrition, is a good start.
Herbs and spices offer medicinal qualities that science seeks to replicate and reproduce. I believe in Mother Nature and choose the most natural options I can afford. Many will argue about the cost of health foods, but I will argue about the cost of health care -a cost I do not have! I often have to remind myself I am HIV positive. I am undoubtedly healthier than most of the people I know. I take no prescription medications other than an occasional muscle relaxer for neck pain. I even rely on a capsaicin or cayenne rub for topical use instead of taking a pill. I only use the medication as a last resort.
Prevention vs. cure is an excellent battle plan if you’re serious about living healthy.
There are many other things that may contribute to my body holding this virus at bay. I am not a cigarette smoker. I am a Vegetarian. I never was a clean freak, so I don’t use noxious chemicals to clean and pesticides are not my style.
About the Author:
It's 2017 and 12 years after my HIV diagnosis I am still healthy and on no prescription meds for HIV.
I wrote Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition to start a discussion about healthy choices that save lives. Because no one seems to care about that. Not the doctors or specialists, or anyone I tried to contact to expand on why I am so healthy despite being HIV positive.
The answer is food. Real food. Not processed, microwaved, filled with preservatives and chemically created vitamins food. Real, whole, fresh food.
You are what you eat. Eat healthy to be healthy.
