In the effort to promote a new medical paradigm, FAIM has initiated a series of projects that can be reviewed in the Investigations and Activities section of this site. FAIM is also involved in other activities that would benefit by additional financial contributions from our readers. Below is a list of opportunities available for direct contributions. Any gifts, large or small, are greatly appreciated.
The Foundation for Alternative and Integrative Medicine (FAIM) is an informational network which accomplishes most of its work thanks to the diligence of the staff. For that reason, a larger part of the budget consists of salaries.
Our staff attends conferences, networks with professionals, develops working relationships with experts in various fields, researches new frontiers in medicine and science, and travels to many countries to investigate integrative and complementary protocols.
Conferences: FAIM attends relevant conferences to learn about new ideas and to network with professionals in the field. It is from these conferences that many projects are developed. Attendance is a vital aspect of the success of FAIM. Contributions to the General Fund will help FAIM attend a larger variety of conferences and cover the costs of these events.
Site Visits: One thing that sets FAIM apart from other alternative, complementary and integrative organizations is our well developed process of Site Visits. Once FAIM learns of a clinic which seems to be having good results, we arrange to visit the site to see for ourselves. In this way we can share with the reader what we learn and details of the protocols that are practiced. We make every effort to be comprehensive in our review. Contributions to the General Fund support opportunities to investigate more clinics so when you or a family member get a diagnosis and are looking for options for care, we are hopeful our review will aid you in your search.
Your gifts to the General Fund are greatly needed in order for us to continue to search so many areas of interest. It is our goal to bring this information to the reader on a regular basis. We hope the information we share on this web site has made a difference in your life and in the life of a family member or friend.
FAIM is collaborating with the Social Security Hospital System in Peru to study the efficacy of colostrum from organic cows that have previously been inoculated with various diseases, including Malaria and Lyme disease. This therapy proposes to aid the afflicted immune system by boosting it using this nutritional aid.
FAIM has investigated various medical cases that reveal the possible use of colostrum as a very promising therapy. To make sure the cows produce A2 beta-casein proteins rather than A1 (read the articles on our site under Diabetes for more information regarding the dangers of A1 beta-caseins in cow milk) all the cows are tested by A2C, a company in New Zealand.
Gifts to the Colostrum Therapy project will support a systematized clinical trial that will test the efficacy of this therapy.
Homeopathic Protocol for the Treatment of AIDS
Jeremy Sherr, a world-renowned homeopathic practitioner has developed a homeopathic protocol for the treatment of AIDS in Tanzania. Mr. Sherr has left his comfortable and secure life and moved his whole family to rural Tanzania to accomplish this mission. He did this with the profound desire to help suffering people and with the conviction to put his skill to best use for humanity. It is FAIM's wish to help Mr. Sherr with this noble objective by helping him raise money for the project.
Gifts to the Homeopathic Protocol for the Treatment of AIDS project will support Jeremy Sherr's work and help him systematize the data with the goal of having it published and thus opening the opportunity for increased funding for success..
Aromatherapy for Immune System Support
FAIM has initiated a series of collaborative agreements to assist children with AIDS with natural medicine in orphanages in Chile, Peru and Ecuador. FAIM is supplying essential oils and sustaining an aromatherapy program that helps these children support their immune system and, for the ones who receive drugs from the Global Fund, deal with the toxic effect of ARVs.
This program is run in collaboration with various partners, including therapists certified by the UK based International Federation of Aromatherapy. Now, many years in the running, aromatherapy is part of these children’s lives. The people dedicating their lives to helping this cause have testified that aromatherapy really makes a positive contribution to the health of these children.
Gifts to the Aromatherapy for Immune System Support project will provide essential oils to orphanages in Chile, Peru and Ecuador and support the salaries of certified specialists who will administer and teach the therapy.
Information on Frequency Healing Technologies
Among the most promising fields of medicine is energy, frequency and signal medicine. A multiplicity of devices from around the world has invaded the market with all sorts of claims and technical specifications. To make sense of all this, FAIM is consulting with the scientific experts with the mission to compile and report information that is available.
FAIM has devised a questionnaire and sent it to manufacturers all over the world to help gather the necessary data on each one of the devices that will be covered. Write ups on specific devices will be posted on the FAIM web site as they are completed. The goal is to educate the public on this new frontier in science and medicine.
Gifts to the Frequency Healing Technologies project will support research for more devices, taking the fear of the unknown out of the equation.
Dr. Cousens' Diabetes Therapy
Dr. Gabriel Cousens is a remarkable and ingenious doctor who has developed a therapy for Type-2 Diabetes. This protocol is also having a positive impact on those suffering from Type-1. We remind our patrons that Diabetes is conventionally defined as an incurable disease!
Dr. Cousens' therapy concentrates on diet and lifestyle and has had significant results with people who have adopted it. He implements this cure in his clinic, the Tree of Life, in Patagonia, Arizona.
Gifts to the Dr. Cousens' Diabetes Therapy project will help FAIM collaborate with Dr. Cousens in three areas:
- Develop protocols for application in the Social Security Medical System in Peru that has interest in implementing his ideas
- Connecting Dr. Cousens with practitioners who have developed other protocols to cure diabetes and who would benefit by exchanging ideas with him.
- Reach medical students around the world by speaking at medical schools.
Dr. Simoncini's Cancer Protocols
Dr. Tullio Simoncini of Rome, Italy, has developed a theory that cancer is caused by a Candida infection. He has refined a simple therapy using sodium bicarbonate, which he claims gives incredible results: over 90% success with breast, prostate, and bladder cancers! Dr. Simoncini has naturally been attacked from all corners while hundred of documented anecdotal cases testify to some apparent truth to his claims.
FAIM is working with Dr. Simoncini by bringing him to Latin America where various hospital systems are interested in studying his protocols in their oncology (cancer) units. FAIM is helping arrange for Dr. Simoncini to give lectures in these hospitals and give training programs for doctors.
Gifts to the Dr. Simoncini's Cancer Protocols project will support the establishment of a proper scientific clinical trial to help ascertain the validity of his theory (proof of concept study) and support the operational costs of the study.
Light Therapy to Treat and Heal Diseases
An entrepreneur from Chicago has developed a patented non-invasive ultraviolet-C (UVC) blood-irradiating device that is being studied in several countries. FAIM is collaborating to help initiate pilot studies with this device to address diseases such as Malaria, HIV and Hepatitis.
UVC is part of a larger spectrum of therapies using light to treat and heal diseases. Light is a small fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum. Although there is no objection to developing technologies that use any fraction of this spectrum for diagnostic applications, there is very little acceptance of developing such technologies for treatment!
Gifts to the Light Therapy project will support studies and a clinical trial to test the safety and efficacy of UVC especially in applications for diseases prevalent in economically challenged countries.
Frequency and Signal Technologies to Diagnose and Treat Diseases
FAIM has been collaborating with Thomas Aksnes of Bergen, Norway in his pursuit to develop a medical model for the 21st century. Mr. Aksnes has developed a system that uses various frequency and signal technologies to diagnose and treat diseases. Mr. Aksnes has implemented over 120 clinics in Norway that use this clinical model to scan and balance people suffering from a broad range of illnesses. He has also developed an FDA-registered handheld electronic tool called Personal Therapy Device (PTD).
Gifts to this project will assist FAIM in helping Mr. Aksnes establish pilot studies in Central and South America to test the effectiveness of the device. The preliminary results have been remarkable.
Gifts to FAIM are tax deductible. If the project becomes fully funded, your contribution will be added to the General Fund to support the ongoing mission of FAIM. Thank you for your support!
