1. there is difference between HIV & AIDS, when person get infected he is said to be HIV +ve, but when the symptoms of Disease appear in the body [which could be anywhere from 5-10 years] he is said to be suffering from AIDS.
2. In Initial stage, when he is HIV +ve: CD4 count is sufficient and Immune system is strong thus apart from medical management Rasayana [Immunomodulators] Drugs like Amalaki,Madhuka,shatavari, Guduchi, Ashwagandha, Piper longum,can be taken which helps in increasing the resistance of the body.
3. In full blown case of AIDS: Since CD4 count becomes low, and Immune system becomes weak, thus he is prone to Opportunistic Infection [frequent diarrhea, recurrent cold: fever/cough] thus treatment should be started without delay with ART [anti retro viral] Therapy along with Symptomatic Treatment from Alternate system of Medicine.

PS. The Diet and Drugs should be aimed at to increase the Immune Power and resistance of the body and to gain body weight, when the Dosha, Dhatus become Normal, the general condition of the patient Improves.
