AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a disease caused by a virus called HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). The illness alters the immune system, making people much more vulnerable to infections and diseases. It is found in the body fluids of an infected person, such as semen, vaginal fluids, and blood and breast milk. The virus is passed from one person to another through blood or sexual contact. It can be transmitted in many ways, such as vaginal, oral sex, anal sex, blood transfusion and contaminated hypodermic needles. It is spread primarily by unprotected sex (including anal and oral sex), from mother to child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding.


Causes

Ineffective metabolism of food produces toxins that pollute the system and reduce body immunity (ojas). Stress, worry, overwork and excessive sexual indulgence also decrease ojas. If this diminished state of vitality is allowed to continue, coupled with high-risk exposure to infection, the body stands no chance of resisting disease. When all seven dhatus or body tissues are deteriorated and ojas is reduced, disorders symptomatic it can occur. The rate of virus progression varies widely between individuals and depends on many factors; These factors include the age of the patient, the body's ability to defend against HIV, access to healthcare, existence of other infections, the infected person's genetic inheritance, resistance to certain strains of HIV, and more.

Ayurvedic view of Treatment

According to Ayurveda, AIDS is primarily a disease of low ojas (immunity), the vital sap of the body. It provides the physical and mental strength to resist disease. With a lowered immune system the body is susceptible to a host of opportune infections and disorders. There are millions of bacteria and viruses in our environment, many of which are contagious, that the body successfully fights off every day. But in a condition of low ojas or immunity level, these organisms are allowed to remain in the body and reproduce to cause disease. Ayurveda has many highly effective therapies for AIDS. There is a branch of Ayurveda known as rasayana, which specifically deals with increasing immunity and vitality through the use of various herbs, minerals and Ayurvedic techniques and practices.
