The human body's immune system protects us from disease and infection. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body by mistake. Autoimmune diseases can affect many parts of the body. FAIM makes it a priority to study the latest in therapies for issues which create autoimmune disorders.

The Safety of UBI

Is UBI safe? There has never been a death or even a major medical complication that has been recorded as a result of using UBI. This is a non-drug therapy that is simple to use and affects so many disorders.

The Medical Action of UV Light

How does it work? Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, the UVC (Ultraviolet C wave length – 254 nm) light dismantles the virus or bacteria that you have in your blood. As a result, many viral and bacterial diseases respond to UBI therapy.

History and Medical Effects of UBI

Over 100 years ago, Faroese-Danish physician/researcher Niels Finsen found that ultraviolet light could effectively treat skin disorders. Learn what has happened with this technology since then.

The Cure that Time Forgot

In light of the antibiotic resistant super bugs like MRSA, it is almost criminal that Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) therapy should not be considered as a common treatment.

Understanding Your Thyroid

Your thyroid regulates your metabolism, creation of proteins and tissues, hormone utilitzation, management of calcium between blood and tissue, and brain development. Learn about autoimmune issues of the thyroid.

Ozone Therapy Summary and Its Application to Viruses, Particularly Ebola

The purpose of this article is to explain in simple terms the incredible physiological effects of oxidation therapy, particularly ozone, and why it might be of help to so many problems.

Hydrogen Water: Drink to Better Health

Is the effect of drinking hydrogen water too good to be true? Dr. Whitaker thought so at first. But the deeper he delved into the hundreds of scientific papers examining the effects of hydrogen therapy, also called molecular hydrogen or H2 therapy, on scores of health challenges, the more he became convinced this is a true scientific breakthrough.

Parkinson's Disease: What Works, What Doesn't

With the help of stem cells, hyperbaric oxygen, glutathione and life style changes, patients with Parkinson's can often slow disease progression, improve function, and enhance overall health.

Food Allergy

Food allergy or intolerance can produce any symptom under the sun: from migraines, fatigue, PMS, painful joints, itchy skin to depression, hyperactivity, hallucinations, obsessions and other psychiatric and neurological manifestations. However, the most immediate and common symptoms in the vast majority of patients are digestive problems: pain, diarrhea or constipation, urgency, bloating, or indigestion.

Study Reveals "Unavoidable" Danger of HPV Vaccines

HPV vaccines are declared the world over as safe and effective, and yet research clearly shows their unintended adverse health effects could be causing severe and widespread harm in exposed populations.

Study Links Vaccine Induced Immune Overload to Autism, Diabetes, Obesity

A new vaccine study published in Molecular and Genetic Medicine is bringing to the forefront the disturbing connection between the dramatic expansion in the quantity of routine childhood vaccines administered and a corresponding increase in inflammation-associated disorders including autism, diabetes, and obesity.

Colostrum: Nature's Perfect Food for Infants and Adults

Colostrum, the pre-milk substance that emerges from the mother's breast following the birth of a newborn, is nature's perfect first food. It is a mixture of immune and growth factors as well as important nutrients, all designed to activate newborn's immune system. Numerous studies show that colostrum and its components continue to exert important biological activities also when given to adults.

The Root Cause of Your Autoimmune Disease — and why treating it can be easier than you think

All it takes is one look around the grocery store to see that gluten sensitivity is on the rise. Because of the increase in celiac disease, gluten-free foods are more in demand now than ever before. But did you know that even if you don't have celiac disease, you might be gluten sensitive and not even know it? Dr. Jonathan Wright explains.

Autoimmune Thyroid

Statistics show that almost 80% of all hypothyroidism is actually the autoimmune disease of Hashimoto's. Often times Hashimoto's does not get diagnosed if the practitioner fails to run the proper antibody test. If the correct diagnosis is determined, then the treatment is actually for immune dysfunction more than thyroid dysfunction.
