Since his bombshell battle with HIV was revealed back in November, Charlie Sheen has vowed to dedicate the remainder of his life to finding a cure for the disease.

The notorious Hollywood bad-boy, 50, sat down on The Dr. Oz Show Monday afternoon, sharing his hope to serve as an avid spokesperson for the HIV-AIDS community from now on.

"I hope in my abilities to do something really positive with this," he told show host Mehmet Oz while the two sat in his Los Angeles home (where part of the episode was filmed).

During the intimate sit-down, Sheen also divulged a dream he had at the age of 28, which provided a premonition of his diagnosis.

In the dream, Sheen claims he saw himself wearing a sign around his neck, reading "AIDS."

Now, the former Two and a Half Men actor says that he is fully committed to altering his party boy lifestyle, taking up healthier habits and working out regularly through yoga, swimming and jogging.

Meanwhile, as Radar exclusively reported, the star — so far — has spent more than $200,000 to battle HIV.

"I said to my mom, 'This disease picked the wrong guy,'" he told Radar's Dylan Howard in late December. "If anybody can fight this thing and discover a cure, it's me. I will exhaust every resource available to me. I will sit with every expert. I will move forward until something's revealed."

Sheen will also be featured in Tuesday's segment of The Dr. Oz Show.
