The treatment of CMV varies quite a bit depending on whether the patient is HIV positive or not. Most cases that we see present as immuno-incompetent whether HIV or not.
The other large factor depends on the symptom profile. CMV can directly affect different organs including the eyes, lungs, gut lining, and brain among others. For example if there is an eye problem associated with the CMV infection we will use Krill Oil, R+Lipoic Acid, Acetyl Glutathione, and Bilberry. Please call 877-454-HERB so our protocol can specifically match your symptoms.
For HIV patients on protease inhibitors there is often liver inflammation from taking harsh medications for so long. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) the eyes are the opening for the liver. In these cases we very specifically use the R+Lipoic Acid and Acetyl Glutathione to mitigate both liver and eyes.
The direct antivirals that use for CMV are Olive Leaf, Monolaurin, Lysine Orotate and Honeysuckle/Chrysantheum/Shatavari Formula made specifically for weakness, nightsweats, and eye problems associated with CMV.
We also draw heavily from the immune boosters especially REM+ whose prime ingredients are different types of reishi and Vitamin D3.
