There is some evidence that certain Chinese herbal medicines may help in relieving symptoms of AIDS, but there is no evidence TCM has a significant effect on a patient's HIV status.

    The only medicine for suffering, crime, and all the other woes of mankind, is wisdom.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    The traditional husband/father has always made choices concerning career, life-styles, values, and directions for the whole family, but he generally had another person on the team—called a wife. And his duties were always clear: Bring home the bacon and take out the garbage.
    Donna N. Douglass (20th century)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
