Dr. Allison Webel, RN, Ph.D, is the lead author of Living a Healthy Life with HIV. She is Assistant Professor of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Webel is a prominent researcher, educator, writer, and speaker in the field of HIV/AIDS self-management, global health and behavior change.



More than 1.2 million people in U.S. are living with HIV and over half of them are over 50.  The World Health Organization and UNAIDS estimate there  were 36.9 million people globally living with  HIV in 2014.

Although it’s no longer a death sentence due to new anti-retroviral medication,  the assumption that HIV is now “cured” is not accurate.  Some 7,000 people a year still die of AIDS.  HIV stigma and shame have been found to negatively impact people living with HIV, affecting their willingness to seek treatment or stick with the complicated regiment of medications that are critical to maintaining health and reducing HIV transmission over the long term.  Patients who feel stigmatized can wind up isolated and without the will to manage their disease.

To live a long and healthy life with the disease, patients need to take responsibility for their own treatment.  This means being on top of the illness, paying less attention to daily signs and symptoms, reducing stress, eating healthy nutritious foods, getting exercise, working with a medical team and getting support from their community.

Dr. Webel and I discuss:

  • How HIV treatments have changed for the better over the last 20 years.
  • Whether HIV positive people should reveal their HIV status and to whom.
  • What are the side effects of HIV meds.
  • Whether or not it is safe to exercise at the same level as people without HIV.
  • Can HIV positive women safely have children; will their babies be HIV positive and;
  • How HIV affects people as they age and what plans should they make for the future.

Do a F.A.S.T check on new or worsening symptoms:

Fever of 101°F or more
Altered mental status
Severity compared to previous symptoms
Typical or unusual?


Living a Healthy Life with HIV is a practical, easy-to-understand book with content that will help not only patients, but also friends and family members who support anyone dealing with HIV.

It stresses that to succeed in living to a ripe old age with HIV the most important skill is learning to respond to your illness on an ongoing basis to solve day-to-day problems as they arise.  The approach the authors of Living a Healthy Life with HIV take--simple, concrete steps to help people find their own answers--has proven to be the approach that works best.

  1. It is no longer news that HIV/AIDS is increasing by the day. The fear is that many people living with the sickness are scared of saying it because of the stigma that comes along with it. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus about a year ago after a medical check-up. My doctor told me that i could live a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to HIV). I felt like my world has crumbled. i will love to say i was so lucky to have come across testimonies online of how Dr.Walanta has cured victims with his herbal medications. i contacted his email and indeed he prepare a herbal medicine for me and sent it through DHL Service an gave me instructions on how to use the medications and after 23days of usage, i did the test again and i was confirmed negative. it was unbelieveable. Am sharing this incase anyone might also need help, you can reach him on this email: drwalantaherbals@gmail.com, if you have similar problems

  3. I have been suffering hardship from HIV/AIDS since 7 years now, and i happen to have 2 kids for my husband, and now we cannot proceed to have another kids all because of my disease and now i have do all what a human like i and my husband can do just to get my disease healed, i have went to several places to seek for help not even one person could ever help, until i melt a comment on the daily news paper that was commented by Desmond about how this powerful traditional doctor help him get cured of the disease (HIV-AIDS) " my fellow beloved" i firstly taught having a help from a spiritual traditional healer was a wrong idea, but i think of these, will i continue to stress on these disease all day when i have someone to help me save my life?" so i gather all my faiths and put in all interest to contact him through his Email address at drinibokuspelltemple@gmail.com so after i have mailed him of helping get my disease cured, he respond to me fast as possible that i should not be afraid, that he is a truthful and powerful doctor which i firstly claimed him to be. So after all set has been done, he promise me that i will be healed but on a condition that i provide him some items and obeyed all his oracle said. I did all by accepting his oracles fact and only to see that after some weeks of taking his herbal medicine i notice some changes in my body system and i went for check up the day he ask me to go for check up to confirm if the sickness was still there,to my greatest surprise i could not find any sickness in my body i was first shocked and later arise to be the happiest woman on earth after i have concluded my final test on the hospital by my doctor that i am now HIV- Negative. My papers for check are with me and now i am happy and glad for his miraculous help and power. With these i must tell everyone who might seek for any help, either for HIV cure or much more to contact him now at these following email now, Email: drinibokuspelltemple@gmail.com" sir thank you so much for your immediate cure of my disease, i must say a big thanks for curing my disease, i owe you in return.

  7. I am a Journalist of over 4 years that Infected was by HIV disease,this disease has over come my body system. My brain fog and memory loss and physical issues made me a vegetable for 4 years.
    Few months ago i came across some testimonies on how Dr Molemen has been using his Herbal Medicine to treat and cure HIV, Some even testified of been cured from Lyme Disease,Cancer and other infections, I have never heard of such before, due to the fact that i always had the believe that one day there is going to be a cure for this disease, i horridly copied the email address of Dr Molemen and i told him about my condition he told me not to worry that he was going to prepare some herbal medicine for me which he was going to send to me right here in my country, eventually after 5 days of communicating with Dr Molemen he sent me a package which i received and he gave me prescription on how i am to use them, after 2 weeks of taking Dr Molemen Medication i became to feel relief in my body and i told him about it, he said to me that i should go for check up in the hospital to know if actually his medicine has worked, i doubted it but i later went to the hospital to get tested and to my greatest surprise I am a MIRACLE and have recovered from the horror of human immunodeficiency virus,and am practicing Jounalism again. I applaud you and your efforts and stand ready to give others information about you and i hope they believe and work with you.
    You can contact Dr Molemen on ( drmolemenspiritualtemple@gmail.com or ( dr.molemenspiritualtemple@yahoo.com).

  17. getting a cure for HIV is a powerful concept, often spoken of the HOLY GRAIL of HIV research.Although effective anti-HIV drugs have transformed HIV into a chronic manageable condition you live with,rather than die from- taking life-long therapy is a very different proposition to being definitively cured. i put it to the whole human race that there is an affordable , scalable HIV cure that worked as well as would put the global eradication of new HIV infections within reach, while also transforming the lives of those now living with the virus. given the effectiveness of this drugs in both treating and preventing HIV infection, i will say to everyone reading this , that i am a living witness to it. unlike fraudster and online scammers who will play you and leave you frustrated with lose of money and hope, this drugs cost less and it is worth a try. if you are interested in getting cured of your own illeness, Below is the communication link of the doctor who has the new medicine which i took that got me cure. Dr Usman Uwaifo Rabiu E-mail;(usmanuwaiforabiu@gmail.com). call or whatsapp him on +234 815 464 1673. BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS ONLINE.
