I would love to hear from people who have been cured of HIV and Aids. Please send me your testimonies. Was it a prophet from the most high who put their healing hand on you? Was it the power of intercessory prayer? Or maybe it was Garani MW1 that has cleared HIV from your system? Or was it asing’anga from the depths of Mulanje? Or maybe a beloved on their travels abroad brought you some potent herbal remedy?
I want to hear from you. What did you take? How long did you take it for? And, most importantly, did you go for a confirmation test to show that there is no HIV in your system? Call me a nonbeliever but I don’t believe in miracles because this is where it all falls apart. The only true test of a cure is an HIV test, not just feeling better because that would be a placebo effect. It is just a remarkable phenomenon where a placebo—a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution—can sometimes improve a patient’s condition simply because the person has expectations that it will be helpful. In the case of HIV and Aids, however, this effect doesn’t last.
The worst part that makes me so angry is that ‘these people’, especially the false prophets, will tell you to stop taking ARVs because they tell you to have faith. That’s BS—excuse my French. Anyone who says that should be convicted of criminal negligence. The harder ones to establish the truth of a cure are the drug peddlers who may tell you to continue your antiviral treatment. If your CD4 count does go down, how do you know what the cause was? That is why most scientific studies have a number of people in different groups so that they can statistically determine cause and effect.
I am angry that there are people out there taking advantage of vulnerable people. I understand people living HIV want to be cured, but those who are making money out of that should frankly be imprisoned. The crazy ones—the prophets and the healers, who honestly are convinced that they have the cure—should also be imprisoned. I think we all have a duty to name and shame and prosecute ‘these people’ as they put people’s lives at risk!
Have you been cured? I would love to hear from you.
