In this first book to bring both establishment and dissenting views of the AIDS crisis into one volume, Gary Null unravels the halftruths that many argue have marred the study of this disease from the start. In clear, jargon-free prose, the book offers an unbiased, unflinching discussion of all sides of each issue.
AIDS: A Second Opinion argues that the AIDS drama has exposed problematic issues having to do with the functioning of U.S. medical institutions. Null explores a new type of health care, grounded in patients’ own choices and dispositions, that poses a challenge to the top-down, expert-controlled medical systems favored by the establishment.
Drawing from Null’s many years of study of alternative, traditional, and orthodox medicine as well as from interviews with many long-term survivors, the book dissects the claims of the AZT and drug-cocktail approach to treating AIDS and offers a trilogy of treatment strategies based on wide views of how to enhance the immune system and improve overall functioning.
