Charlie Sheen has called out his doctor, Dr. Samir Chachoua, for making false claims regarding the “Anger Management” star’s health. Dr. Chachoua, in an interview on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” claimed that despite being on a cocktail of strong antiviral HIV medications, Sheen’s blood still showed the virus. He further said that it was his cure, which consisted of arthritic goat’s milk that helped Sheen.
News.com.au informs that the doctor claimed that it was under his care that Sheen became the first adult in history to go HIV negative. “The minute he (Sheen) started my therapy, his liver went to normal levels,” Dr. Chachoua said. “I saw a very sad person in a very sad place and I really wanted to give him a boost. There was real hope out there, there was a way of curing him. And I did that. It was spontaneous,” he added, reports News.com.au.
The doctor claims that the arthritic goat’s milk contains a CAEV virus that can destroy HIV and protect people who drink it for life.
The claims haven’t gone down well with the “Two and a Half Men” actor and Sheen took to Twitter to blast the doctor. “Dr Sam I was with u in Mexico for 1 day. It’s illegal for u to practice in U.S.A. where u treated me for 2 months,” said the tweet.
ANN had reported that Charlie Sheen wanted to dedicate his life to find a cure for the disease that can lead to AIDS. Sheen made an appearance on the “The Dr. Oz Show” last month where he confessed that he had indeed travelled to Mexico and met the doctor who claimed to cure cancer, AIDS and even chikungunya and underwent a series of injections. “We did see some incredible results early on,” Sheen explained notes News.com.au. “Off the med cocktail (a mix of antiviral HIV medications) that I was undetectable. And it stayed that way. I did an experiment I didn’t have any faith in but I went along with it,” he added.
However, Sheen received news about his blood numbers before the show was about to begin. He revealed that his blood numbers are not looking good. Daily Mail reports that the actor told the 55-year-old cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Oz that he is amazed he is actually alive. “I had been non-detectable, non-detectable checking the blood every week and then found out the numbers are back up,” told Sheen.
The actor is back on his medications.
