The 50 year-old actor stated in a pre-taped segment for the Dr. Oz Show earlier in the week, that he had stopped taking his HIV medication his U.S. doctor had prescribed him in order to seek out an alternative treatment in Mexico, under the care of Dr. Sam Chachoua.

This treatment involves extracting HIV positive blood of a patient and injecting it back into that same patient. How that can work?

In an interview with Dr. Oz, Sheen told him, “I’ve been off my meds for about a week now.  Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t bother me at all.”

According to Sheen’s manager, Mark Burg, Sheen was risking his life for this alternative treatment and as soon as Charlie’s T-levels rose slightly, he immediately resumed his prior medical treatment.

Students give mixed reactions to this kind of treatment for someone with such a serious condition.  

“I think it’s freaking crazy! I don’t see how that will work and it just sounds idiotic,” senior Sean Warner said.  

“I think it’s a good thing he’s willing to risk his life to help find a cure for HIV once and for all. It’s nice to know there are people like that in the world. I just wish there was more them,” senior McHenry Hubbard said.  

Whether it seems idiotic or heroic, these facts still remain – Sheen still has HIV, there is no current cure, and his new doctor shouldn’t be practicing medicine.
