So should I try to get another test and is so meds or holistic alkaline cleanse?

So for the last 3 months I haven’t had sex with anyone. I am bisexual but I mostly mess with men and never both at the same time. But back in February I met this guy and we had unprotected sex in which we did anal. I went to the doctor after two months of feeling off .  When I went I went to a family center that’s through a college . I  wasn’t able to get  my old doctor so they assigned me a woman doctor(which I had no problem with) it’s just sharing the reason why I was there and the fact that I was bisexual seemed to make her uncomfortable which made me uncomfortable. She walked out after  me informing her I was bisexual and came back in and  she suggested that  I recieve  both hep vaccines even before testing me . So they took my blood and urine.  A week later I came back and with no hesitation she  quickly informed me that I needed to get on the drugs b/c I have HIV. And I was just in a complete state of shock. She informed me that I’ve had no others stds or sti just that I was HIV positive.  Within the last 3 months I have felt a little off my lyphmnodes are swollen to the point I can move them, and I have had pain in my stomach and at the tip of my penis.

PS: I know this is a lot but I honestly don’t believe in there medical system. I’ve always been a very active young man but genetically I’ve had previous episodes of sezures, I pass out if I get dehydrated, when I was 11 I fell off my bike onto the concrete and although I had an X-ray and they stated I didn’t have any fractures but ever since I had horrible sinus issues and on there left side of my nostril it seems lower, and my moms anemic as well. Side-note: I know this is very long but I just want whoever reads to understand all of my situation. And she stated that my overload was 15,000 or 1500 and my CD4 was 619.Because deep down inside I’m scared ******** but I’m trying to remain calm and I’m sorry about the long thread but I’ve been needed to vent.I’m 22 I’ll be 23 in less than a month I just want to know what’s the best thing to do.

Your timeline is unclear regarding which tests you actually took to lead to the diagnosis of HIV.  Did you have a confirmatory test, such as a Western blot?  If not, then you need to do so before you proceed.

Skip the holistics meds and alkaline cleanse if you want to live.  Neither of those will do anything good if you have HIV.  You can't turn your body alkaline no matter what some snake oil salesperson might tell you, and no matter what you do, and for good reason - you would die of respiratory or metabolic alkalosis.

If you have HIV, the only treatment is HIV-specific medication.
