The actor is back on his treatment after trying out an unlicensed Mexican medication, announced Mark Burg, Charlie’s Sheen manager, to People Magazine.
“Charlie is back on his meds. He tried a cure from a doctor in Mexico but the minute the numbers went up, he started taking his medicine,” said Burg.
Sheen announced on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show that he had stopped taken his HIV treatment; instead he will be trying an alternative one.
He added that the alternative was from a physician named Dr. Sam Chachoua; an enthusiastic that, according to an audio played by Dr Oz, drew some blood from him and injected in himself and said: “Charlie, if I do not know what am i doing, then we are both in trouble, aren’t we?”.
Chachoua claimed that Sheen was “the first person in history without antiviral therapy to be cured of HIV”.
In the show, Sheen claimed that he did not see it as a “Russian roulette”. Instead he saw it as a dismissal of the conventional course he has been on. He does not recommend people to try it, he just was presenting himself as a type of “guinea pig”, he added.
Charlie Sheen revealed his condition to Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show. He declared that he has been diagnosed with HIV four years ago, and that the doctors found an undetectable amount of the virus in his blood.
Nevertheless, he told Dr. Oz later on in another show: “I am a little off my game, because right before I walked out here, I got some results I was disappointed about” he explained. Later he claimed that it had been non detectable, and checking his blood every week then he found out that the numbers were up again.
