Zambia: Sondashi Formula Cures Copperbelt HIV Patient?

Filed under: Editor's Choice |

A COPPERBELT-BASED resident claims that the Sondashi Formula HIV drug has cured him as all the tests he is taking now indicate that he is negative.

The man, who did not want be identified publicly, although his personal details were verified by this author, said he tested HIV+ on July 1, 2005 and was given all the options by medical personnel in Kitwe on whether to start ARVs or not.

He said he started taking the ARVs the same year and much later, his wife also tested positive of the HIV virus.

Displaying his (authentic) negative results from Nkanza Laboratory in Lusaka dated 14-05-13, the man said he had also taken tests from other health centres and the results were the same.

“As you can see, Nkanza Laboratory actually puts it on paper where they indicate negative or positive apart from those other medical figures that they put,” he said.

“I am so happy because I think I have broken a record for Dr Sondashi’s drug. I only took it for four months because I started taking it on January 21 this year and I doubt if there is anyone else who has been cured in such a short period of time. I hear others have to take the drug for at least six months and above for them to get positive results,” he said.

He was thankful to the Sunday Times of Zambia through the AIDS Corner column, saying he read about the Sondashi Formula in the newspaper and immediately contacted Dr Sondashi’s employees and on January 21, he started taking the drug.

He appealed to people involved in coming up with treatment drugs for ailments such as HIV not to always cry to Government for assistance but try other available options.

He said they should instead work flat out to assist the hundreds of people in need of treatment.

“The AIDS Corner column has had good articles on various herbal medicines developed locally and overseas. For the locals, I always read that they are appealing to Government for assistance. They have the formulae but why appeal for assistance instead of going into mass production to help the many people out there. They should also be able to pass on their knowledge to others,” he said.

He said they could also use the Church, schools, traditional leaders and many others to ensure that the drugs were abundantly available on the market.

“Before the Sondashi Formula, my CD4 count was never above 423 but now it is at 717 and, mind you, I took the CD4 count test when I had malaria and naturally, when you are unwell, your CD4 drops. So my actual CD4 count should be well above 717. I am healthy and fit, though I have not stopped taking the ARVs as well,” he adds.

He said he did not want to disclose his name for fear of stigmatising his children who at this stage, may not grasp with what he has had to go through due to living with HIV.

  3. Some high ranking officials in GOVT know that Sondanshi Formula is much better than ARVs but are acared of the unknown(BU AFRICAN)The ba zuzungus know it but due to business interests(ARVs,condoms etc) they will delay WHO approval.Ask Dr Chikusu knows that a relative of Late President Mwanawasa tested negative after initial clinical tests hence the reccommendation for further tests in SA

THE TEST YOU HAVE DONE DONE ONLY DETECT THE PRESENCE OF ANTIBODIES PRODUCED BY YOUR BODY TO FIGHT OFF THE HIV. I HAVE KNOWN PEOPLW WHO HAVE OPTED FOR THE SF200 AND IT SEEMED TO WORK. ONE OF MY CLOSE FRIEND TOOK IT FOR MANY YEARS BUT LATER HE DEVELOPED FULL BLOWN AIDS AND HE DIED LAST YEAR. MY ADVICE IS DON’T GUMBLE WITH LIFE! RIGGHT NOW IT’S ONLY ARVs!

  11. This article is very misleading. How can this patient claim to be cured by the Sondashi formula when he is still taking ARVs. Firstly, if you are taking ARVs, for some years, you may appear negative after basic tests and yet you still carry the virus. I would probably believe in the Sondashi formula if this patient was only taking this medicine and not combining with ARVs.

  19. I have some news for people, i have had the pleasure of working with the South African Department of Science and Technology, who for the last 8 years have been testing SF 2000. It show (under regorous scientific and clinical tests) that this is the best response to HIV of all currently known treatments. It is 8 times more effective than our current ARVs on the market.
    The original SF2000 had high toxicity which has been removed by scientifc separation of the compounds that were causing this. THe Zambian Government is also helping to hold clinical tests and funding this fomular through the Strategic Research Fund under Ministry of Science.

  20. This claimant is confusing me. He is saying he took S-formular for 4 months together with ART (arvz). And he is advising not to stop ARVs while taking the S-formular. But why? We want to hear from one who has taken S-formular without running ART medication pa side.

  24. The only proof to HIV cure is by doing a PCR (polymarase chain reactor).
    This is a test that detects HIV DNA $ RNA. If these are absent, then we can talk of having been cured.
    So, my advice is for this patient to go for PCR test or be on medication free for six months? If he still remains negative, then we shall start having hope in our sondashi formular. A rise in CD4 count is not an indicator for cure. Equally, a negative test does not mean absolute cure. The viral load can drop to as low as zero when talking ARVs effectively. Moreover, this individual is taking both the ARVs and the Sondashi formular, which could be a good concontion due to their effective synergsm ( complementing each other). And please for those that are saying the Whites will not take it rightly, that they have invested so much in research for HIV cure, should give us a break. It is time we should believe in ourselves as Africans and support one another. This generation is not for worshiping the whites, gone are the days. Let us as Africans stand alone and be self reliant.Infact Africa will gain so much respect if the cure for HIV is discovered within the confines of its borders.

  28. I don’t know if Sondashi’s formula was changed, but they did an experiment some years back (I don’t know how controlled it was, however), and most of the people on Sondashi’s formula died. And these were people who worked in HIV testing and counseling. It did show improvement in opportunistic infection symptoms, but it did not stop people from dying. If it’s the same formula, Sondashi needs to be honest and let people know the past results. I’m thinking it’s the same formula, as the man in this story is still taking ARVs. It should be marketed as an adjunct to ART, to help with some opportunistic infection symptoms, not as a cure, otherwise they will be responsible for increased deaths and drug resistance.

    • I think they were relatively young (not kids, but not senior citizens), but someone else should verify that. Also, they died of opportunistic infections, which they shouldn’t have if the formula was working (it relieved some symptoms, but did not all, and did not control the virus).

  31. Matters relating to cure for AIDS are very sensitive. At times I fear for Dr. Sondashi’s life. The whites have spent billions and billions of Dollars on AIDS research and have not come out with a cure. They will therefore not allow a black man who is even not a medical doctor to come up with a cure. It is a fact that many Zambian herbalist have effective herbs to contain AIDS but they should not rush int the open to announce the AIDS treatments before the Government is well organized.

  32. There is need to be careful with this kind of publicity. We are talking about people’s lives here. This Sondashi Formula is no cure at all, people, do not even stop taking your ARVs as it will be bad for anyone to do so at such a time. If the Formula was a cure by now we should have had at least a thousand patients giving such claims. MoH needs to put up a corrective statement otherwise, people’s health or lives is being endangered here. Science is not for testimony but prove, let us leave testimonies for other social circles and not with this deadly infection in the name of HIV.

    Remember the Colloidal Silver claim and some Dr Ngoma who just stole money from clients and a lot of lives were lost in the process.

  35. While am not discrediting the Sondashi formula, it also important to note that people that have been taking ARVs and have had the CD4 count boosted, they will test negative. So in this particular case, to which medication do we attribute the negative test outcome? Thank God the person in question has not stopped taking medication like many others do. Testing negative when someone has been taking ARVs does not mean that one is cured. When a relapse occurs it is usually fatal and difficult to contain

For lack of better tern, when your soldiers in the body are dead hence no one to protect your body. So when someone tests negative, they dont test negative to aids, but to the virus

  48. at first I was like this sounds like an authentic story until “I am still taking ARVs”. Boom! I would think that if the doctors found him negative, they would have stopped dispensing drugs to him. That also means he has been taking the S-Formual together with ARVs? Is that the formula? ARVs are pretty strong drugs!!

    He also says “it takes six months for others”. Who are those. Wouldn’t that make international news!! One person was healed from HIV through a bone transfer – and that made BIG international news!! Now Mr. Sondashi has healed many more and nobody knows about it??????

    The problem is that people starting feeling a little ok after ARVs and they think they are healed. It just goes to show that ARVs work!
