Charlie Sheen’s doctor is crazier than he is.
Sheen recently discontinued his HIV drug regimen in favor of an alternative treatment in Mexico.
During an interview with Dr. Oz on Wednesday, the 50-year-old actor said he’s trying something new.
“I’ve been off my meds for a week now,” Sheen said. “Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t phase me at all.” (RELATED: Charlie Sheen Confirms He’s HIV-Positive)
“We did see some incredible results early on. I did an experiment I didn’t have any faith in but I went along with it.”
“I didn’t see it as Russian Roulette,” Sheen added. “I didn’t see it as a complete dismissal of the conventional course that we had been on. I’m not recommending that anybody else do this. I’m presenting myself as some kind of a guinea pig.” (RELATED: Charlie Sheen Was Asked About His HIV Diagnosis — His Answer Caught Everyone Off Guard)
Sheen’s doctor is so confident in his method that he injected himself with his patient’s blood.
“I drew some blood from him and I injected myself with it and I said, ‘Charlie, if I don’t know what I’m doing, then we’re both in trouble now, aren’t we?'” Dr. Sam Chachoua said.
Sheen said it was “mind-blowing.”
“I watched that happen when he felt so confident,” Sheen said. “He delivered that my blood would not be any risk to him.” (RELATED: Denise Richards Knew Charlie Sheen Had HIV, Report Claims)
