How can I boost my CD4 count without ARVs?



The only way to increase your CD4 is to use HIV treatment (ART).

Nothing else, including multi vitamins, supplements or herbal remedies can increase your CD4 count. Please see this question for more info.

    Im on site at PE came yesterday nd I’m left with 3 pills, and I’m based in Johannesburg, but I’ll be leaving next week Friday, I’m having multivitamin BCom, will they help me since I ran out of ARVs??

    Hi Dumisani,

    How long are you going to be without ARVs? I’m asking as only ARVs can control your HIV.
