Reiki Magic

The AIDS epidemic has already resulted in the deaths of millions of people world-wide and today, according to the World Health Organisation, there are more than 500,000 cases around the globe (considered a low estimate because of non-reporting and lack of adequate definition) living with this deadly disease.
What is AIDS?
AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a fatal, incurable, sexually transmitted disease (STD) in which the body's immune system breaks down. Normally, the immune system fights off infections and certain other diseases. When the system fails, a person with AIDS can develop a variety of life-threatening illnesses. AIDS is caused by a virus called the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In adults, the onset of AIDS can take up to 10 or more years, and new drug therapies can delay the progression of the disease into AIDS even longer. Thus, a person infected with HIV may look and feel healthy for many years but he or she can still transmit the virus to someone else.

How is HIV transmitted?
HIV is transmitted through the exchange of any HIV-infected body fluids. Transfer may occur during all stages of the disease. The HIV virus is found in blood, semen, saliva, tears, nervous system tissue, breast milk, and vaginal secretions. However, only blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk, have been proven to transmit infection to others. Transmission of the virus occurs through sexual intercourse - oral, vaginal, and anal sex; via blood through transfusions or needle sharing; and from pregnant women to the foetus or a nursing mother to her baby. Other transmission methods are rare and include accidental needle injury, artificial insemination through donated semen, and kidney transplantation through the donated kidney. The infection is not spread by casual contact such as hugging and touching, by inanimate objects such as dishes or toilet seats, or by mosquitoes. It is not transmitted to a person who donates blood (although it can be transmitted from the blood to the person receiving the transfusion--this is why blood banks screen donors and test the blood thoroughly). It is also not transmitted to a person who, for example, donates a kidney for transplantation.

Who is really at risk?
High risk groups include homosexual or bisexual men, intravenous drug users who share needles, sexual partners of those in high risk groups, infants born to mothers with HIV, and persons who received blood transfusions or clotting products between 1977 and 1985 (prior to standard screening for the virus in the blood). AIDS is transmitted by both heterosexual and homosexual practices. Some sexual practices, such as anal intercourse, carry higher risk of transmission than other sexual practices, such as vaginal intercourse. Transmission occurs more readily from an infected man to a woman than from an infected woman to a man. The second most common mode of transmission is by contact with infected blood. Sharing needles when using IV drugs is a major cause of HIV transmission. As more women become infected with HIV, the incidence of foetus HIV infection is increasing. One in three infants born to HIV-infected women will be born HIV positive. Some of these infants test positive only because of maternal antibodies, and will become negative by 15 months. Those that do not become negative are actually infected with the virus and will develop AIDS. Breast feeding also transmits the infection to the infant. Mothers who are HIV positive should not breast feed. Although there may be other modes of transmission, they are extremely rare and none have yet been unquestionably proven.

What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of AIDS include, prolonged, unexplained fatigue; swollen glands (lymph nodes); fever lasting more than 10 days chills, excessive sweating, mouth lesions and painful, swollen gum, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, changes in bowel habits, symptoms of a specific opportunistic infection (such as candida, pneumocystis, and so on), tumour, skin rashes or lesions of various types, unintentional weight loss, general discomfort or uneasiness (malaise), headache etc. Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease are speech impairment, muscle atrophy, memory loss, decreasing intellectual function, joint swelling, joint stiffness and pain, cold intolerance, bone pain or tenderness, lethargic movement, anxiety, stress, and tension, groin lump, generalised itching (pruritus), genital sores, blurred or double vision, light sensitivity, blind spots in the vision, chest pain, flank pain, back pain, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, indigestion, or other gastrointestinal upset.

How can you prevent it?
Prevention of AIDS requires self-discipline and strength of character. The requirements often seem personally restrictive but they are effective and can save lives.
1. Do not have sexual intercourse with: People known (or suspected) to be infected with AIDS
Multiple partners
A person who has multiple partners People who use IV drugs

2. Do not use intravenous drugs. If IV drugs are used, do not share needles or syringes. Avoid exposure to blood from injuries, nosebleeds, and so on, where the HIV status of the bleeding individual is unknown. Protective clothing, masks, and goggles may be appropriate when caring for people who are injured.

3. People with AIDS or a symptomatic individuals who have a positive anti-body test may pass the disease on to others and therefore should not donate blood, plasma, body organs, or sperm. From a legal, ethical, and moral standpoint, they should warn any prospective sexual partner of their HIV positive status. They should not exchange body fluids during sexual activity and must use whatever preventative measures (such as a latex condom), that will afford the partner the most protection.
4. HIV positive women should be counselled before becoming pregnant about the risk to their infant and medical advances, which may help prevent the foetus from becoming infected.

5. HIV positive women should not breast-feed their infant.
6. Safer sex behaviours may reduce the risk of acquiring the infection. There remains a risk of acquiring the infection even with the use of condoms. Abstinence is the only sure way to prevent sexual transmission of the virus.
