Chronic and Degenerative Diseases
Chronic and degenerative disease is a major health issue. With the goal of sharing anti-aging information, FAIM attends conferences and investigates protocols.
The ABCs of GMOs is a great start towards understanding genetic modification. For decades, agribusiness has heralded advances that later were found to be poisoning the masses. It may have started with Rachel Carson's exposure of the dangers of DDT in Silent Spring. From there, we have an unending list of chemical additives that the population has been subjected to, without any meaningful testing. Yet, the arrogance of mankind continues as we tinker with the genetic code. Together, it amounts to the American public being unknowing participants in the largest uncontrolled science experiment ever conducted.
Most medications for pain and inflammation can be avoided by simply eating superfoods, herbs, exercising and developing a positive mindset on a daily basis.
The ionic footbath is a total body detoxification technology based upon the beneficial and purifying effect of ions on the body.
Intermittent fasting allows your body 16 hours to optimize your metabolic machinery and your insulin and leptin signaling, thus, empowering your body's immune system. Dr. Joseph Mercola believes it has a profound impact on most cancers and heart disease and can be a useful approach to whatever strategy one is currently using to treat or prevent these diseases.
Human GcMAF, otherwise known as Vitamin D binding protein macrophage activating factor, holds great promise in the treatment of various illnesses including cancer, autism, chronic fatigue and possibly Parkinson's.
As FAIM continues to search the world for affordable, non-toxic, effective alternatives for various conditions, we have learned about an intriguing powder used as an asthma and hayfever remedy. This powder has an interesting history.
Walking has been shown to have many unexpected health benefits, such as improving cognitive function of the brain, maintaining bone density, alleviate symptoms of depression and improving fitness. But what if you cannot walk due to various health issues? Dr. Paul van Bemmelen describes how simulation of walking, without the work of muscle-contraction or fall-risk, can be achieved with a non-invasive home treatment, which uses external squeezing of the leg muscles.
Do you have leg or arm pain from poor circulation? Dr. Steven Kavros discusses research that shows the value of intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) in many areas of both upper and lower extremity vascular disease.
Statistics show that almost 80% of all hypothyroidism is actually the auto-immune 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.
The 19th Annual Anti-Aging Medicine Conference addressed critical areas of healthcare today including interventions for chronic fatigue, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline, osteoporosis, new approaches to skin care, hormone balancing, detoxification protocols and many others.
Can Alzheimer's be cured? The program outlined in this book by Dr. Bruce Fife is designed to provide the brain with all the nutrients necessary to quiet chronic inflammation, stop free-radical destruction, energize the brain cells, and stimulate repair and growth of new brain cells; thus allowing the brain to heal itself. With coconut ketones and a proper diet Alzheimer's can be conquered.
There are many problems confronting Lyme disease physicians seeking to help their patients. The threats to freedom in medicine posed by insurance companies, medical boards and peer review were covered in detail with examples.
Dr. Koren Barrett describes the role of the adrenals, hormones, and adrenal fatigue/exhaustion and offers alternative and complementary treatments to return the adrenal to a healthy balance.
Occassionally FAIM will highlight a particular protocol. With the large number of asthma cases, it seemed prudent to share the Buteyko Breathing Therapy with our readers in this article by Eugenia Malyshev.
Dr. Mary Newport's husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease at much too early an age. After much research, Dr. Newport reports on her experience with how MCTs and coconut oil have helped her husband in his return to health.
The clinic proposes a medical paradigm based on non-toxic biological medicine that, not only identifies, but also eliminates the root causes of acute and chronic diseases including cancer.
Chronic pain is one of the top – if not the top – complaints that most doctors hear about from patients. The good news is that the complementary medical community has a plethora of safe and natural therapies that work to alleviate pain. Dr. Susan Lark shares these with our readers.
"Modern Mayr Medicine" therapy at the clinic is based on the F. X. Mayr, M.D. (1875-1965) therapy for a healthy person. Dr. Mayr's work was about the link between digestion, intestinal health and overall health. According to Dr. Mayr, "The intestines are to man what the roots are to the plant. Only when these roots are kept in an optimal condition of nourishment and cleanliness, can the plant (man) itself thrive and remain healthy."
Thinking outside the box means using our basic knowledge of science to understand underlying causes of disease. This conference presented protocols that were probably never covered in professional school.
Lyme syndrome is a disease that results from a tick bite. It is also known as the “great imposter” since it mimics over 350 different medical conditions including, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, CPC, Lupus, reactive arthritis, Reiter's syndrome, vasculitis, chronic neck pain, chronic back pain, MS, ALS, dementia, Alzheimer's, chronic headache, migraines, Crohn's, interstitial cystitis, chronic sinusitis, chronic bronchitis and asthma.
The Age Management Medicine Conference is an opportunity for practitioners to learn about options available to help their patients age gracefully. Many of the presentations deal with hormone supplementation, functional medicine and endocrine balance.
The 17th Annual Anti-Aging Medicine Conference emphasized Regenerative Biomedical Technologies. These conferences cover a broad scope of topics in the field of anti-aging. Review the impressive list of speakers!
A4M hosts conferences throughout the world. Topics relate to anti-aging including vaccines, nutrition, hormone replacement and bioresonance, to mention a few.
