Free HIV Testing at Walgreens: Five Reasons to Get Tested

Drop and give us 20...minutes to test you.
Walgreens is all kinds of sexy lately. In March, it became the first pharmacy to carry the female condom, a plastic pouch that gives females the power of putting up their own STI-barrier. Now for the first time ever, Walgreens is offering free HIV testing for three days, on June 22-24 from 3-7 p.m. Lest you think prayers and Rick Perry will save you from HIV, do us all a favor and go get tested. Here are five reasons why. (All statistics are from AIDS Foundation Houston.)

5. It's a romantic first date
There's nothing better than lying down with someone freshly diagnosed as "negative." (Or, in the case of a positive test, knowing what you need to do to keep yourself safe.) Most everything else you can cure with a pill -- syphilis, chlamydia, babies -- but HIV is tougher, even though great strides are being made.

4. Uh, you live in Houston
Chances are if you grew up in Texas's pubic schools, you didn't learn much in the way of sex ed. Houston has the highest infection rate in Texas and one of the highest in the country: There's one new infection every seven hours. Even so, only 14 percent of Texans were screened for HIV in 2009.

3. Your youth is no excuse
Young and invincible? Think again. Two new HIV infections are transmitted every day in Houston among youth under age 30.

2. It's National HIV Testing Month!
...so it's practically your patriotic duty. I mean, you celebrated National Masturbation Month in May, right?

1. It's in the same aisle as your Pride supplies
As you stock up on rainbow condoms, double up on safety and get tested, too. Men who have sex with men (MSM) account for just 4 percent of the U.S. male population, but the rate of new HIV infection is more than 44 times that of other men, according to AIDS Foundation Houston.

Only three Walgreens locations in Texas are providing free tests, and two of them are in Houston. Visit the Walgreens on Hawthorne and Montrose Blvd., or Fondren Road and Bellfort.

I am going to be respectful when saying this show that prayers can save you from HIV, in a sense that good living, such as abstaining from sex until marriage and not having gay sex, can and will remove worrying about aids by giving peace that you can not get it.  And for anyone going to bash, A) no sex means theres not way to contract the virus, or extremely rare if you try to include other ways, and B) the article clearly states that " but the rate of new HIV infection is more than 44 times that of other men," which shows being gay has its consequences.  Go to church, learn the word and use it to protect yourself.  If at all remember its the world that convinces you to do all until its too late, then you have no-one by your side when you die.

THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.......AMBUSH

THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS

is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a doseof 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH'KILLS' the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and theviral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is ableto 'KILL' the virus that are 'hiding' in the lymph system by its'natural radioactive' properties. This process allows the body to'return to normal health' with a corresponding immunity to that orthose strains of the virus.

What is AMBUSH ?

AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the 'palm'plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSHcauses the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes fourhours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation inthis form but it contains an active ingredient which is a 'NEW'crystalline substance, a drug from the 'palm plant' similarly toASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark

RESULTS:

After 21 days on AMBUSH, ALL the individuals experienced a decrease inviral load to undetectable, an increase in cd4, increase in RBC, animprovement in general health such as more color to the face, decreasein Buffalo hump, an increase in gluteal muscles, a decrease to havingno joint pains whereby individuals can bend to touch their toes, andwalk up steps are but a few examples. There is also a dramatic increasein their sexual appetite beginning after the first week of therapy

DISCUSSION:

In any plant concoction such as percolated 'tea', there are 30-40,000compounds, whi ch would take the scientific community twenty years toisolate one particular ingredient if they knew what they were lookingfor. The LORD GOD has given me seven steps to isolate the activeingredient, which is soft and metallic in nature and has a carbon-uranium-sulfur-(classified)-phentolamine configuration or structure.This is similar to Federick Kekule and the discovery of the benzenering where he dreamt the structure.

As an antiviral and 'natural radioactivity' producing agent, AMBUSH isalso effective against leukemia, lupus and HPV. Here I am saying that Ihave 'GIVEN' AMBUSH in the same 'strength' and dosage to patients withleukemia, lupus and HPV. A 35 year old male with HIV found it difficultto impossible to urinate was put on 'green tea' and water while thedoctors contemplated prostrate surgery. One of the doctors gave him mynumber , I sent him a supply of AMBUSH an d he has not been given anymore ARV's, since taking AMBUSH 18 months ago, is in 'good' health andhas expressed a willingness to be examined by HIV investigators likemany others who have taken AMBUSH.

I have sent this 'IDEA' to most HIV research agencies, scientist of thefield, universities, hospitals, clinics, politicians and news agenciesto which it is REJECTED because the name of THE LORD GOD is mentioned.He has steered me scientifically through the processes such as whichplant and how to produce the active ingredient. What are the odds of aFlorida Pharmacist picking a plant would contain the CURE for HIV/AIDS ?I have never charged any of the people for their supply of AMBUSH but alife saving has been spent on the project with NO renumeration from anysources because AMBUSH falls outside the walls of modern medicine andresearch.

PROPOSAL:

My proposal is that I PROVE that AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS by giving it toa number of END-STAGE or DRUG-RESISTANT people and the scientificcommunity watches their recovery. This proposal addresses the problemin that I have already outlaid the results to be obtained.

This IDEA is unconventional in that the scientific community hasrejected AMBUSH because I say it is GOD given. Secondly if I wrote itaccording to certain standards, then it might be peer reviewed.However, THE LORD GOD has also shown me that there are five enzymesystems associated with the virus, reverse transcriptase, protease,fusion and two more of which causes the virus to be AIRBOURNE. Thismeans that without DIVINE intervention mankind and ALL warm- bloodedmammals will be extinct in a number of years.

The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein itis found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it atDIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine atthe end but is a different amino acid every time. This is why it isIMPOSSIBLE to produce a VACCINE.

Since this is NOT a hypothesis but there are about 400 individuals whohave taken AMBUSH, here lies a vast area in which to check, recheck andconfirm that AMBUSH CURES AIDS. Let it be mentioned that during the HIVreproductive cycle, reverse transcriptase converts viral RNA into DNAcompatible to human genetic materials. Thus the human DNA has been'hijacked' and since each person has a DIFFERENT DNA, then the newviral copy is unique to that person which shows that each individualhas a DIFFERENT STRAIN of the virus. Consider two HIV positive peopleswapping viral strains and increasing its complexity with multiplepartners.It can also be proposed that they be revisited as proof that the strainor strains that they had were 'killed' at the time of taking AMBUSHconsidering that a person can catch as many different strains as thereare people who are infected by HIV.I am also willing to work with the scientific community in identifyingthose individuals who took AMBUSH and wish to be identified with thisprocess notwithstanding that some are stigmatized while others arejubilant,

Once AMBUSH is verified as being able to accomplish that which isaforementioned then the next stage might be the natural and artificialsynthesis of the substance.

Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GODalways wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinelygiven to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever. The WORLD is therefore COMPELLED to listen......sooner or later....your choice !!!!!Apostle Shada Mishe.

According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 56,300 new cases of HIV in the US annually! It is more important than ever to get tested. TheChronic Disease Fund is joining the fight and has a promising, patented AIDSvaccine. The hopeful vaccine works to prevent HIV from evolving into AIDS. Thisis big because it could spare patients a lifetime of ordeal and expense. TheCDF has started the re:solve AIDS project to raise funds to put the vaccinethrough human testing. Please join the fight and help the re:solve project atwww.resolvefromcdf.org.
