For the past year, I have received several emails from readers on our mailing list that attempted to follow portions of “Mary from Brooklyn’s” protocol that has apparently cured her of HIV infection. Most of the protocols focused on the use of black seed and also vitamin D. No one reported the use of a raw garlic clove 3 times a day with meals. It may also be noteworthy that no one has achieved the level of success that Mary achieved – return to a normal CD4/CD8 ratio (1 to 2.5) and flipping the antibody test from pos. to neg.
For some weeks I have been wondering if there was some missing factor in “Mary from Brooklyn” apparent cure that has been overlooked. Over the past several months, several of you have sent me emails detailing self-help treatments, some with, and, some without prescribed HIV drugs.
On November 29th, I talked with a reader from the West Coast who told me interesting story and asked that his name not be used. I will call him John Doe #1. I have talked to John Doe #1 on and off for the past 25 years. He is a male in his 50’s and has been positive and using HIV drugs all this time although having maintained a keen interest in natural remedies. Here is what he told me yesterday.
Like Mary from Brooklyn, John Doe #1 lived in a suburb of New York City. Around 1995 he recalls a conversation with several of his friends who were all HIV+, and about one person in the group (John Doe #2) who was an anomaly as he had practiced unsafe sex for several years with men known to have HIV or AIDS, yet he remained HIV negative. As the discussion went, John Doe #1 asked #2 “what do you attribute your negative status too?” HIs reply – “garlic.” John Doe #1 assumed #2 was eating raw garlic although he never actually said that.
Fifteen years later around 2010, John Doe #1 returned to New York and met No 2 who disclosed to him that he was now HIV positive and had been so for the past 2 years. John Doe #1 said to #2: “I want to ask you one question: did you stop eating garlic?” His reply: “Yes.”
#1 then said to #2: “that is why you are now HIV+. In all those years you practiced unsafe sex, the garlic protected you.”
This conversation occurred between us as he called to give me his new address and the subject of Mary from Brooklyn came up. He asked me what I thought of her success and why no one else had duplicated her results. I told him that I had a hunch that garlic might be the missing part of the AIDS cure puzzle.
On Nov 29 I wrote to more than 70 members of the email group, some live in Nigeria. No one has since replied that they had used raw garlic as part of their protocol. One person asked if garlic tablets from a health food store would work as well. My opinion is that they would not. I personally believe that one clove of raw garlic with Ajeone in it has more anti bacteria, anti-fungal and anti-viral effect than a whole bottle of dried garlic capsules. I did cite a study years ago that aged garlic extract taken at a dose of 5 grams a day helped to significantly improve the CD4/CD8 ratio, a key indicator that the protocol is working.
Scientific Research on Aged Garlic extract and HIV
1989 – The following excerpt is from the Immune Restoration Handbook 3rd end (page 228) quoting from a study on the use of 5 grams daily of an aged garlic extract used in treating 6 Aids patients:
“A study published in the German Medical Journal “Deutsche Zeitshrift” in Oct, 1989 by T.H. Abdullad, D.V. Kirkpatrick and J. Carter, reports on the results of 7 AIDS patients taking 5 grams of garlic daily as an aged extract, similar to Kyolic garlic. They said that 6 of the 7 patients had normal NK cell activity after 6 weeks and that all had normal NK activity after 12 weeks. Five of the 7 had significant improvements in their T4/T8 ratios after 12 weeks with 3 returning to normal reference ranges of 1.0 or higher. They also reported a lessening of diarrhea in one patient with Cryptosporidia, fewer outbreaks of Herpes, Thrush, Candidiasis, and Sinus infections.”
Note: in 1989, the only FDA approved drug to treat AIDS was AZT and it did not work for very long. The 1989 article did not indicate that AZT had been used along with the aged garlic extract.
Update: a search I did for this abstract today Dec 2, 2017 at the National Library of Medicine has turned up nothing. My opinion is that someone has removed this study from the NLM. What I did find is a number of titles of abstracts from AIDS magazines and organization funded by big drug companies suggesting that people with AIDS should not use garlic along with prescribed HIV meds. These articles bashing garlic had no abstract attached. I would call this science by soundbite.
While 1989 seems like ancient history, early in the 1990’s, there were also published reports at the NLM (Pubmed) that an aspirin a day was increasing CD4 helper cell counts. Since the introduction of protease inhibitors, not a word has been spoken about these earlier discoveries. My own opinion is that while aged garlic extract has a wide range of health benefits in supporting immune function, it does not have the direct germ and virus killing power of raw garlic. This is because raw garlic, (not aged garlic) has a substance called Ajeone- that will kill bacteria, fungus and viruses including HIV on contact.
Here are a few abstracts on “Ajeone”, the active ingredient in raw garlic

Ajeone, Cancer and the immune system.
A search at the NLM this evening only one word Ajeone yielded 161 scientific studies, a majority of them citing research on Ajeone in the treatment of various types of cancer, and also how it increased IgA production in the intestines of mice. A lot of this research is recent and was published in 2017. It appears that some drug companies, realizing the potential of raw garlic to kill cancer cells, are doing research on synthetic analogues that can be patented and could be very profitably marketed to a vast population infected with cancer. Patented cancer drugs cost $10,000 a month and up while raw garlic would cost pocket change (probably less than $25 a month).
For raw garlic to cure AIDS, it has to penetrate and block HIV activity inside the lymph nodes – the main reservoirs of HIV infection. Possibly some of the sulfur compounds inside garlic may mimic the penetrating effects of Di-Methyl SulfOxide (DMSO). When some people get cured of AIDS and/or cancer by eating raw garlic, the big drug companies would definitely want to hide this information from the public. With millions of dollars continuing to pour into the coffers of politicians in Washington DC, don’t hold your breath that natural remedies like garlic (including black seed, Vitamin D and thousands other natural remedies) that you read about here and elsewhere will get any positive support from politicians or from the mainstream media.

We are a group of volunteers and starting a
new scheme in our community. Your website provided us with valuable information to work on. You’ve done
a formidable job and our entire community will be thankful to you.
The article is an eyeopener. I have added it on the list of protocol and will be adhered to strictly. Thanks Conrad
I AM USING A MISTURE OF COTTAGE CHEESE AND FLAXSEED OIL(WITH LIGNANS) FROM DR. BUDWIG, A GERMAN DR. WHO RECCOMMENDS IT FOR CANCER AND OTHER IMMUNE DISORDERS.
I have been following your articles about Mary as well. If I remember correctly, raw honey was also taken. The studies I’ve read, mostly from Africa, all mention blackseed in addition to raw honey. I even read a, admittedly very limited, case study about a man in Iran that took only raw honey. While this man did not experience sero-reversion, he did experience very positive changes in CD4 counts. Perhaps the secret is in honey?
Is that any kind of garlic or a special kind,and were would one find it
As far as I know, any kind of garlic should work. I look forward to the results from the Delhi Escorts. Today 7 replies were posted and I approved all of them, but only 5 showed up here. I will look into what happened to the other two.
Anyone who can answer any questions posted on this board/blog, feel free to jump in. Future articles I write will be posted around the 1st and the middle of each month.
In a nutshell, what started as a raw honey and blackseed remedy for HIV in Nigeria by Dr Onifade a few years ago has expanded to include high doses of vitamin D or lots of daily sunshine plus beet juice once or twice a week and raw garlic with meals each day.
I originally sent you the Black seed web link on 20th June 2014, best contribution I ever made to humanity.
I would like to know if you speak to Jon Doe #1 if it was i clove of garlic with a meal 3 times a day? as it says above, could you make contact with Doe#2 and interview him? find out as much about his then diet please? might be something missed out.
Vit D is supposed to clear out the lymph nodes.
Thank you in advance.
Hey There. I found your blog using msn. That is a really smartly written article.
I’ll be sure to bookmark it and come back to learn more of your helpful information.
Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.
I have been taking Raw Garlic for nearly 3 weeks now, and I no longer need reading glasses, I am 50 years old.
Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but
I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by
I am really inspired with your writing skills as neatly as with the structure for your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay
up the nice high quality writing, it’s rare to look a nice blog
like this one nowadays..
It was WordPress blog art for 2016, I think or 2017. It just popped up when the blog was set up last month. Thanks Conrad.
Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thank you, However I
am having troubles with your RSS. I don’t know why I cannot subscribe to it.
Is there anybody having identical RSS issues? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond?
Wonderful post! We are linking to this great post on our website.
Keep up the great writing.
Hi, i think that i saw you visited my weblog thus i came to “return the favor”.I am trying to
find things to improve my web site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your
Hello Its OK – just give us credit by including a link back to keephopealive.org for more information. Thanks Conrad.
Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I
provide credit and sources back to your site?
My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my
visitors would definitely benefit from some
of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you.
Yes its OK to quote- just include one link back to keephopealive.org. Thanks Conrad
I do not even know the way I ended up here, however I believed this put up was good.
I don’t understand who you are but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger should you are not already.
One of the BIGGEST worries I have about western medical scientists is when they simply copy God’s blueprint from healing tress and plants and they spend 20 years in laboratories to create these synthetic analogues (unnatural molecular replicas of God’s free-given healing remedies) ALL for the purpose of patents and exclusive control of the “synthetic” version of God’s original compound. The amount of EFFORT and TIME spent on creating synthetic analogues is so absurd ! I wrote extensively about this issue on my blog wherein I complained about two professors from Standford who have spent the past 25 years working on creating a “synthetic analogue” of a “natural compound” that has an ability to clear out this so-called “HIV Reservoir” . . this dark practice of creating synthetic analogues is to me a very absurd thing ! We’re busy “copying” naturally occurring healing compounds that are ALREADY freely and readily available from nature to create synthetic versions (fake look-a-likes of them) and then call that “medicine” !
I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good
content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
I have been reading this website,keephopealive.org and this blog also. A wonderful site which gives hope to humanity
May God bless you sir.
Garlic is a brain cell killer as well, so be careful and do your research.
Maybe short periods of time, not long periods. Would welcome any feedback.
Received a reply from Conrad:
Sorry Seb, but the man you placed your trust in for that statement was Robert Beck who self manufactured “Rife” machine is as dangerous as a placing your head near a radio transmission tower ora microwave machine. It was convenient for him blame garlic for the damage done to his patients by his radio frequency machines. His views are not supported by any science I am aware of. I warned about the dangers of his frequency machines more than 20 years ago and published those warning in the Immune Restoration Handbook.. People who bought and used his machine told me that they had explosive increases in viral load counts after using it. This is because the high frequencies caused electro perforation of the membranes of cells, allowing viruses to infect and damage new cells- the damage was systemic. I heard reports of some people who tried to treat Lyme disease with his machine or similar machines and committed suicide as a result. I would not trust a word of advice from him. Conrad LeBeau – Search “Beck” or radio frequency machines at keephopealive.org or on google with the term adverse effects.
