Cistus Incanus is a natural product and sold as a nutritional supplement. It works against the retrovirus HIV by targetting the proteins[1]. It works as an entry inhibitor[2] at the entry level which means it prevents the entry of the virus into the cell in a very early state and prevents virus particles from docking on cells.

It works also against bacteria[3] and viruses [4] and has antifungal activity[5].

It seems that it also has positive effect against the cause of ME[6]

myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
