Herbal medicines are often used as primary treatment for HIV/AIDS and for HIV related problems. In general, traditional medicines are not well researched, and are poorly regulated. This review deals with the evidence and safety concerns related to the use of two specific herbals. Efforts should be made by mainstream health professionals to provide validated information to traditional healers and patients on the judicious use of herbal remedies. This may reduce harm through failed expectations, pharmacologic adverse events including possible drug/herb interactions and unnecessary added therapeutic costs. Efforts should also be directed at evaluating the possible benefits of natural products in HIV/AIDS treatment.
