Q and A


Will nigella seeds help my CD4 count?

I was tested couple of days ago and my CD4 count is 107. I am now waiting for my viral load test.

I am following proper diet and trying to eat all what helps the immune system. I am even adding nigella seeds in my diet as it helps the immune system. Hopefully my medication starts asap.

Can I still keep taking nigella seeds in my diet or will it not work with these modern medicines.


Thanks for getting in touch.

The only thing that will help your CD4 count is ARVs. No herbs or supplements can do this. Therefore, there’s no reasonĀ for you to take the nigella seeds – unless you just like them. Eating well is good tough for your general health.

As your CD4 is 107, your doctor should talk to you about starting treatment.

its also important that you take an antibiotic called co-trixmoazole. Has you doctor also prescribed this?
