When Charlie Sheen told the world that he’s HIV positive on the Today show last November, he said that the virus was undetectable in his system thanks to the meds he was taking. That reminds me of the old saying: If it’s not broke, why try to fix it by getting an alternative treatment from a crazy doctor? Well, Charlie Sheen went against that saying by going off his meds and flying off to Mexico to get “cured.”
In a 2-part interview with my mom’s boo Dr. Oz that aired yesterday and today, Charlie said that he met with Dr. El Chapo who immediately put him on an HIV-fighting regimen of blow and meth. No, Charlie says he was treated by Dr. Sam Chachoua, a doctor who claims to be working on an HIV vaccine.
Dr. Oz talked with Dr. Sam on the phone and the doctor wouldn’t say how he was treating Charlie exactly. But Dr. Sam claimed that he was so confident in Charlie’s treatment that he injected some of Charlie’s blood into his own veins. Uh huh, I’m sure that crazy doctor did it right in front of Charlie’s eyes. I’m sure he didn’t say, “Hey, look over there, 12 naked porn stars on a pile of crack rocks,” to Charlie before quickly switching out the syringes full of blood. Dr. Oz was shocked and said he didn’t think he’d ever hear another doctor spewing that kind of foolery. And when Dr. Oz thinks you’re a quack… (My mom is going to get me for that one.)
Dr. Sam told Dr. Oz that Charlie Sheen is the first person in history to be cured of the virus without antiretroviral therapy. But well, Dr. Sam’s miracle treatment didn’t work, surprisingly. Charlie isn’t cured and he recently found out that a little bit of the virus is now detected in his system. Charlie told Dr. Oz that he’s a guinea pig and he doesn’t recommend getting the treatment he got in Mexico, which is a good recommendation since, you know, that shit didn’t work.
“I didn’t see it as Russian roulette. I didn’t see it as a complete dismissal of the conventional course we’ve been on. I’m not recommending that anyone – I’m presenting myself as a type of guinea pig.”
Charlie went off his meds after taking them for 3 years, because he wanted to know what it felt like to be off of them and doctors, like Dr. Sam, from around the world threw alternative treatments at his face. So he decided to try them. After Dr. Oz got on Charlie for not taking his meds, he said he’d take them on the plane ride home to L.A., but he could’ve just been farting out jokes. (UPDATE: Charlie’s manager tells People that he’s back on his meds.)
Before Charlie went to NYC to talk to Dr. Oz in the studio, he did a taped segment where he shrugged and said that yeah, he may be fucking with his life by not taking his meds, but it doesn’t really matter since he’s a zombie. via People
“I’m been off my meds for about a week now,” he said in a pre-taped segment for an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show Tuesday. “Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t phase me at all.”
Yes, Charlie Sheen is probably going to live past the end of time and will tap dance on the corpses of the last living roaches, but I think the real story here is that he’s a disciple of the Church of Tila Tequila:
The biggest lie ever told is the fact that you are all dead and you're just dreaming right now. I am being "DEAD SERIOUS!"
