In this first book to bring both establishment and dissenting views of the AIDS crisis into one volume, Gary Null unravels the half-truths 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.
In AIDS: A Second Opinion, Null 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 his many years of study of alternative, traditional, and orthodox medicine as well as from interviews with many long-term survivors, Gary Null 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.
