Sample text

Proper treatment needs to be individualized and based on the Oriental diagnosis instead of on the diagnosis of AIDS. It is possible to approximately translate syndromes of one system into those of another, but it must be understood that this will decrease the likelihood of applying the correct treatment from one system (Oriental) when its diagnosis is compromised by guidance from principles of a second system (Western). Translation may take place by assigning a Western disease to several Oriental syndromes and then choosing the appropriate treatment for the patient's particular expression of the Western disease.

One caveat is in order when considering cofactor and non-HIV theories. A significant difference exists between the symbiotic interactions of disease agents, synergistic interactions, and progressive accumulation theories. In a symbiotic interaction, both agents are necessary for functionality. For example, Shope discovered in 1931 that swine flu in pigs is caused by a combination of a virus and a bacterium, neither of which is pathogenic in pigs by itself. 20 This case is quite different from that observed in the synergism between alcohol and barbiturates.
