Anabolic Steroids, Wrongly Believed To Be Illegal Substances For Everyone, Can Be Life-Savers For People With HIV
Two leading Houston HIV physicians champion the program spelled out in Built to Survive. Patricia Salvato, M.D., says, "The authors detail how to use nutrition, anabolic hormones, and exercise in combination to improve lean body mass and overall health in HIV. Improving lean body mass improves overall quality of life, with reduced infections and reduced mortality." Shannon Schrader, M. D./Researcher adds, "As people watch their bodies improve, they develop a more positive perspective. … Improved mental health contributes to good physical health."

Co-author Michael Mooney, PoWeR's Director of Research, says, "This book details everything one might want to know about anabolic hormones, appetite stimulants, proper diet, cutting edge dietary supplements, and an optimal exercise program to improve health and the potential for long-term survival."
Co-author Nelson Vergel, chemical engineer, founder of PoWeR, and Director of the Body Wellness Center/Houston, has been HIV(+) for 19 years. He experimented with the principles set forth in Built to Survive and is living proof of their effectiveness. "The time has come to treat HIV comprehensively with not only anti-retrovirals, but also with life-enhancing complementary therapies. … Minimizing the side effects [of drug therapies] is key to living better and longer. We hope we can make it easier to conquer many of them with our book," says Vergel.
