Our expert says:
If you are HIV+ you should under no circumstances use any products, including herbal ones, to "cleanse" your liver as this can undermine your immunity. If you are constipated click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read Articles 123 and 124 about healthy colon practices, you will see what to eat to keep your colon healthy. I would recommend that you try ‘Bifidoflora’ which you can buy at health shops or dietitians as a probiotic to assist with constipation. I would recommend that you do consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to assist you with a diet that will boost your immunity and prevent weightloss as weightloss is the single most important factor in reduced immunity in HIV.
