Charlie Sheen HIV: Actor off Meds, Seeks ‘Alternative Treatment’ in Mexico
The TV star revealed he has stop taking medication on “The Dr. Oz Show” Tuesday. “Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t phase me at all,” he said, per People.
Sheen saw a Dr. Sam Chachoua, who has a clinic in Mexico, but who is not able to practice in the United States. The actor didn’t reveal more about the kind of treatment he had with the said doctor, but Chachoua was apparently confident about his methods, he injected Sheen’s blood on himself.
For three years, Sheen’s blood test showed he’s been “undetectable,” but after changing treatments, his HIV numbers have gone back up. “I’m a little off my game, because right before I walked out here, I got some results that I was disappointed about,” he told Dr. Oz on his show, per NY Daily News. He’s not recommending the treatment he got in Mexico for everyone and he still sees his physician Dr. Robert Huizenga.
The actor promised he will be taking his HIV meds again at the end of the episode.
