    Default Can any Wuxia doctor cure AIDS?

    As far as I know, there are no modern cure for AIDS...yet.

    But what about Wuxia medication? Do you think it could cure AIDS and other diseases of today?

    I think if they have enough internal energy, HIV won't be able to get into their system. *shrug*

    If one already has HIV, I can imagine somebody's great internal energy "killing" the virus.

    It's not science, it's fiction, so it's not too hard to make those stuff up.

    Simple but rather uncreative answer: AIDS didn't exist in ancient China so NOOOO, wuxia medicine, a jacked form of traditional Chinese medicine cannot cure AIDS. You can't cure a disease that doesn't exist.

    Chinese medicine, while effective against many ailments that modern Western medicine has no answer for, generally runs up against a wall when dealing with *infectious* diseases (i.e. caused by bacteria or virus). This is because traditional Chinese medical procedures do not concentrate on destroying/neutralizing the infectant.

    uh... not so likely... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIDS_origin

    Ditto Ken--I'd vote 'no.'

    HIV weakens our immune system, so that usually harmless diseases are no longer self-cured, so a cold might become a pneumonia and kill you.

    Inner power can help you survive in a harsh artic environment without shelter, as shown by Xie Xun remaining in top condition during the long drift north. Furthermore, you can be poisoned and not die thanks to high inner power. For these reasons, I believe a person with high inner power might be able to deal with aids, as their body will still remain strong and resistant.

    Since wuxia doctor is fictional so it can. Something like 1000 years old Ginseng and other rare chinese medicines will do the work. Wuxia heroes with some powerful inner energy can do almost anything....

    Wuxia doctors have no knowledge of how our immune system exactly works.

    Whether AIDS is curable or not, as with everything else, depends on the necessities of the plot
    Reverend Rongku prepared himself.

    Suddenly, he toss his hands and screamed: "I am not human! I am an animal!"

    The crowd startled at such a bizarre beginning to the story.

    Commit suicide by jumping off a cliff. After your fall is broken by trees and snow and hay, you'll find a cave at the bottom which will contain the legendary AIDS-curing manual of the divine doctor of the mountains, which if trained in exactly the right way and at exactly the right time (which you will be fortunate enough to happen on), will also soup you up to become the most poweful fighter in the world.

    but, practicing 9 Yang will allow the body to move and concentrate the infected white blood cells to the finger tips and expell them out of the body
