A senior Greek journalist and ex-AIDS patient, Papagiannidou-St Pierre was born in 1965. She was diagnosed "HIV positive" in 1985. From 1995 to 2005 she was a full-blown AIDS patient suffering horrifically from the side-effects of the medications, being sometimes told she had no more than a week to live. In 2006 she started the website www.hivwave.gr
and married the Canadian "HIV negative" Gilles St Pierre. On April 23, 2007, she stopped taking the pills prescribed against AIDS, became strong again and regained the freedom we all lost in 1984. So, what had she suffered from — a deadly hoax? She began to research what had happened to her, met many who had questioned the HIV/AIDS dogma on her way, found the missing answers and now wants to shout out around the world: "The elaborate AIDS construction is built on a false foundation!"From the book:
Born in January 1965 in Komotini in northern Greece, her parents were a philologist and a mathematician. With her family she moved to Athens when 5 years old. She read Greek Literature at the University of Athens and did postgraduate studies (Master in Classics) at the University of London. She was diagnosed “HIV positive” in 1985. In January 1989 she began writing for the newspaper Vima on Sunday
. From 1995 to 2005 she was a full-blown AIDS patient. In January 2006 she started the website www.hivwave.gr
as Maria K. to publish her reseach on AIDS. In May 2006 she published the book Maria K. How I defeated AIDS, a wonderful adventure with the HIV virus
. (Kastaniotis publications) In July 2006 she married the Canadian biologist and computer technician Gilles Saint Pierre. Her second book was published in March 2007 and entitled The game of love at the time of AIDS
(Kastaniotis publications), this time under her full name of Maria Papagiannidou Saint-Pierre. On 23 April 2007 she stopped taking the pills prescribed against AIDS, recovered her health and regained the freedom that we all lost in 1984.
Sadly, in 2012, Maria died, probably from the long-term side effects of the drugs on her liver.
