Although there have been many breakthroughs in recent years regarding the treatment and possible cure of AIDS, as of yet there is not a reliable cure available. However, there are some treatments that can help alleviate some of the symptoms that AIDS patients frequently have. One often overlooked treatment for AIDS symptoms is medical marijuana. Here are three common symptoms that are alleviated with this plant.
Nausea and Appetite Loss
The most concerning symptoms that occur are those related to the digestive tract, appetite, and weight loss. When weight is lost quickly without being held in check, it can make new symptoms appear or other symptoms to worsen. Medical marijuana eases nausea and brings on the munchies, allowing you to eat a healthy and balanced diet and keep it down. This prevents the weight loss that makes patients seem more sickly than they really are.
