You should consult your doctor for a CD4 count to assess the progression of HIV. He/she should examine you to determine why your lymph nodes are swollen and to establish a reason for the discolouration of your skin. The concoction should not harm your condition and is high in anti-oxidants, so you are welcome to try it but it is important to consult your doctor.
