Ok – for those of us who work in the holistic health realm, this is actually an “expected” outcome. However, the fact that this story has made its way into the media and is presenting a need for NO medication is HUGE!!!!!!!!! Stories like this in the “yesteryear” would have been shut down by Big Pharma, disallowed to report anything contrary to the “pharmies are all you need routine.” More and more of these articles are surfacing. Could Big Pharma’s continual lawsuits be tying them up?

Mississippi doctors make medical history made with first ‘functional cure’ of unnamed two-year-old born with the virus who now needs no medication.
octors in the US have made medical history by effectively curing a child born with HIV, the first time such a case has been documented.
The infant, who is now two and a half, needs no medication for HIV, has a normal life expectancy and is highly unlikely to be infectious to others, doctors believe.
Though medical staff and scientists are unclear why the treatment was effective, the surprise success has raised hopes that the therapy might ultimately help doctors eradicate the virus among newborns.
Doctors did not release the name or sex of the child to protect the patient’s identity, but said the infant was born, and lived, in Mississippi state. Details of the case were unveiled on Sunday at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Atlanta.
