Treating Herpes Doesn’t Diminish Risks of HIV Infection

By Eliza Strickland | June 20, 2008 6:47 pm

injection shotWhen an experiment finds out that a treatment doesn’t work as expected and that a cherished hypothesis just isn’t right, it’s not considered as newsworthy as an amazingly effective treatment that sparkles with potential. But the negative findings are just as important in their contributions to medical knowledge.

In that category, a new study dismisses the theory that treating herpes reduces patients’ risk of HIV infection, a strategy that was believed to hold promise. Researchers wrote in a commentary: It is time to reassess the hypothesis and to adjust prevention policy accordingly [The Lancet, subscription required].

Previous research had shown that people infected with genital herpes are more than twice as likely to become infected with HIV. Experts said there was a complex relationship between the two viruses that is still not entirely understood. When herpes ulcers erupt, that draws white blood cells to the skin to fight the virus. Unfortunately, those white blood cells also have receptors for HIV [AP]. Researchers hoped that by treating herpes patients with the antiviral medication aciclovir and preventing ulcer outbreaks, they could lower these patients’ risk of HIV infection.

The scientists studied 3,172 men and women in Africa, Peru and the U.S. who either received aciclovir or a placebo. The trial was in the last of the three stages of testing required for regulatory approval. The incidence of HIV infection was similar in the two groups after as long as 18 months, the study showed [Bloomberg].

In the report, which was published in The Lancet [subscription required], researchers say they don’t know why the treatment failed to reduce HIV infections, and said they might try another study with a more powerful drug or different dosage.

    THE CURE for HIV/AIDS…….AMBUSH

    THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS
    is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH ‘KILLS’ the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and the viral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is able to ‘KILL’ the virus that are ‘hiding’ in the lymph system by its ‘natural radioactive’ properties. This process allows the body to ‘return to normal health’ with a corresponding immunity to that or those strains of the virus.

    What is AMBUSH ?
    AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the ‘palm’ plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSH causes the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102 degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes four hours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation in this form but it contains an active ingredient which is a ‘NEW’ crystalline substance, a drug from the ‘palm plant’ similarly to ASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark

    RESULTS:
    After 21 days on AMBUSH, ALL the individuals experienced a decrease in viral load to undetectable, an increase in cd4, increase in RBC, an improvement in general health such as more color to the face, decrease in Buffalo hump, an increase in gluteal muscles, a decrease to having no joint pains whereby individuals can bend to touch their toes, and walk up steps are but a few examples. There is also a dramatic increase in their sexual appetite beginning after the first week of therapy

    DISCUSSION:
    In any plant concoction such as percolated ‘tea’, there are 30-40,000 compounds, whi ch would take the scientific community twenty years to isolate one particular ingredient if they knew what they were looking for. The LORD GOD has given me seven steps to isolate the active ingredient, which is soft and metallic in nature and has a carbon- uranium-sulfur-(classified)-phentolamine configuration or structure. This is similar to Federick Kekule and the discovery of the benzene ring where he dreamt the structure.

    As an antiviral and ‘natural radioactivity’ producing agent, AMBUSH is also effective against leukemia, lupus and HPV. Here I am saying that I have ‘GIVEN’ AMBUSH in the same ‘strength’ and dosage to patients with leukemia, lupus and HPV. A 35 year old male with HIV found it difficult to impossible to urinate was put on ‘green tea’ and water while the doctors contemplated prostrate surgery. One of the doctors gave him my number , I sent him a supply of AMBUSH an d he has not been given any more ARV’s, since taking AMBUSH 18 months ago, is in ‘good’ health and has expressed a willingness to be examined by HIV investigators like many others who have taken AMBUSH.

    I have sent this ‘IDEA’ to most HIV research agencies, scientist of the field, universities, hospitals, clinics, politicians and news agencies to which it is REJECTED because the name of THE LORD GOD is mentioned. He has steered me scientifically through the processes such as which plant and how to produce the active ingredient. What are the odds of a Florida Pharmacist picking a plant would contain the CURE for HIV/AIDS ?
    I have never charged any of the people for their supply of AMBUSH but a life saving has been spent on the project with NO renumeration from any sources because AMBUSH falls outside the walls of modern medicine and research.

    PROPOSAL:

    My proposal is that I PROVE that AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS by giving it to a number of END-STAGE or DRUG-RESISTANT people and the scientific community watches their recovery. This proposal addresses the problem in that I have already outlaid the results to be obtained.

    This IDEA is unconventional in that the scientific community has rejected AMBUSH because I say it is GOD given. Secondly if I wrote it according to certain standards, then it might be peer reviewed. However, THE LORD GOD has also shown me that there are five enzyme systems associated with the virus, reverse transcriptase, protease, fusion and two more of which causes the virus to be AIRBOURNE. This means that without DIVINE intervention mankind and ALL warm- blooded mammals will be extinct in a number of years.

    The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein it is found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it at DIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine at the end but is a different amino acid every time. This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce a VACCINE.

    Since this is NOT a hypothesis but there are about 400 individuals who have taken AMBUSH, here lies a vast area in which to check, recheck and confirm that AMBUSH CURES AIDS. Let it be mentioned that during the HIV reproductive cycle, reverse transcriptase converts viral RNA into DNA compatible to human genetic materials. Thus the human DNA has been ‘hijacked’ and since each person has a DIFFERENT DNA, then the new viral copy is unique to that person which shows that each individual has a DIFFERENT STRAIN of the virus. Consider two HIV positive people swapping viral strains and increasing its complexity with multiple partners.
    It can also be proposed that they be revisited as proof that the strain or strains that they had were ‘killed’ at the time of taking AMBUSH considering that a person can catch as many different strains as there are people who are infected by HIV.
    I am also willing to work with the scientific community in identifying those individuals who took AMBUSH and wish to be identified with this process notwithstanding that some are stigmatized while others are jubilant,

    Once AMBUSH is verified as being able to accomplish that which is aforementioned then the next stage might be the natural and artificial synthesis of the substance.

    Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GOD always wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinely given to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever. Apostle Shada Mishe.

    I would really like to learn more about Ambush and how can I get a perscription or how ever you do it. I have been living with this for nearly 25 years. I am tired of taking the meds and feeling the way I do about myself. Please send me some help to be rid of this demonic disease. I would like my health back. I have a good doctor but all he knows is pills. If I were to take this information to him, he would be skeptical like the rest of the doctors who has turned you down. Meanwhile he is not the one who has to live with it. Let me know what I have to do to be among the healthy again.

    Our comments are not for the public is it?

  • MARK

    HOW CAN SOMEONE GET THIS MEDICATION , ALSO I WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS.

  • http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/ Eliza Strickland

    Apparently Apostle Shada Mishe posts this same text in the comment sections of many blogs. I know of no scientific studies of this “medication.”

    Sirs,
    My name is Doug Sturlingh, I have invented the Herpes Shield but nobody knows of this patent pending invention that prevents the contracting and spreading of genital herpes!! The reason nobody knows is because I can’t get any exposure from any news agency or media source. I have written to newspapers all across America and the world and had gotten NO response from them as yet. With genital herpes spiralling out of control, with over ONE BILLION people on the planet with herpes, looking for help for this painful, embarrassing and cureless viral disease, no-one wants to give me the time of day!! Is it that my inventions are only patent pending? If this why I have’t gotten my fair share of attention? Call me impetuous, I just want to get this invention available to the anguished people of the world as fast as possible! I’m not a nobel lauriate, a statesman or a scientist, just a man who through my compassion and intellect, for over fifteen years of my life, spent to invent this shield against this dreaded disease. Maybe it’s more important for you to sell papers than to reach out to all these people afflicted with herpes. Maybe a cat got stuck up a tree or a man fell down a manhole, wow that’s earth shattering news to fill up your print and waste broadcast time, I’m sure everyone loves news like that, well not everyone! The world is waiting, gasping, catching its breath for the media source to willingly write or broadcast about this global genital herpes protection! What good is having this invention if no-one can absorb the knowledge it brings from its simplicity of construction! When I was a young boy my dad told me that one man can make a difference, I’ve always tried to be that man, now that I have invented something that is SO needed by SO many people and can’t even let them know of it for having no exposure by keeping them in the dark is a travesty for all of mankind!! Along time ago when I was growing up, when someone invented a product(patent pending or patented) that was worthy of attention it got it with no fanfare just the facts, that is what I want, just to inform people, let them know they have a choice. That choice being that they can have normal sexual relations again With genital herpes and those Without can stay that way just by using the shield. It’s not about money or politics, it’s about compassion and empathy for others you know and those who you don’t. Your not just giving me exposure as inventor but, your giving your brother, sister, cousin, neighbor or even yourself and everyone else. With your support I can reach the right parties to manufacture this most needed global invention. The faster people hear of it, the faster it will be produced. Look around your newsroom maybe the person sitting next to you has contracted genital herpes, why not over 100 million Americans and billions overseas have it now and those numbers are rising everyday by the thousands!! Herpes doesn’t discriminate! Take a few minutes out of your day to view my website http://www.herpesshield.com it is informative. If after viewing it and you feel as I do please contact back to me I would be greatful and eager to discuss it further with you or anyone you deem knowledgeable on this subject. I reach my hand out to you for help, please don’t slap it away. Like I had said earlier the people of the world are waiting. How long must they wait? I made a difference, now I need a man or woman to make that a reality!! Are you that person? Hurry!!
    Doug Sturlingh

    hi , i would like to purchase the medication for my daughter she is 1year 7months,is it safe for her to use?

  • James Muldoon

    There’s a rumor floating around that Apostle Shada Mishe has died as a result of AIDS related complications. Has anyone heard anything more concrete?

    It would be an interesting insight into his mindset if it turned out he had HIV the entire time he was hawking this quackery, and desperately hoped it was curing him.
