Charlie Sheen, man. He hasn’t done or said anything crazy in like, what, two months? That’s pretty damn amazing, that he’s managed to stay low ever since his announcement that he was HIV positive.
But you can’t keep a bat shit Bro quiet for long, and today he was on the Dr. Oz show to talk about his treatment and progress since the public reveal of his diagnosis.
Surprise. It’s … well, you read the headline. In the interview, he tells Dr. Oz that he went off his anti-retroviral medications while visiting a homeopathic doctor in Mexico who believes he can cure both AIDS and cancer.
According to Sheen, Dr. Samir Chachoua’s results were so astoundingly impressive that the HIV was essentially completely out of his system. To prove it, Chachoua took some blood from Sheen and stuck it right into his own forearm.
That’s … uhhh … not safe.
It should be noted, Chachoua is not licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
Also, at the beginning of the interview, Sheen says that he just received news that his his numbers were back up, and that HIV is detectable again in his blood stream.
That’s what not taking medication will do for you. According to the New York Daily News, Sheen originally promised to never stop taking his medication.
Sheen then admitted that he recently stopped taking the “cocktail” of medications altogether, less than two months after he promised in an open letter that he never missed a treatment.
“I’ve been off my meds about a week now,” he said in a recent video that premiered on Tuesday’s show. “I feel great. Am I risking my life? Yeah, so what?”
Yea. So what?
Sheen promised at the end of the show to go back on his meds. So yay, happy ending. Well, hopefully. Who knows about that doctor.
