´╗┐Autoimmune disorders, Prevention, Risk Factors, Diagnosis & Treatments.

Preface to the second edition: The autoimmune disorders have become the biggest threat to humans larger than AIDS, SARS and Polio combined. In the second edition I have published treatment for Asthma, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), eclampsia, chronic fatigue, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, Vitiligo, Parkinsons and many others. In this edition I have mentioned uses of electro medicine and alternative treatments for autoimmune disorders. Evidence suggests that the leading cause of death in the world is due to infections, the common antibiotics can control these infections. This book is dedicated to my parents Salahuddin Khan & Nasreen Khanum. It was due to the dedication of my parents that a child with attention deficit disorder and learning disorder would grow to become a source of help for ailing humanity. Another motivation to write this book on autoimmune disorders was the fact that soon after my marriage, my wife developed ankle arthritis. Then following her first pregnancy, she had difficulty walking and developed severe stiffness. In retrospect, it took her several years and multiple visits to many doctors before a diagnosis of Takayasu diseases was finally reached, by an internist. The next hurdle was to start a treatment and the only option was steroids. At the time of diagnosis she had no pulses in the wrists. I was determined to find a cure for this disease. It took twenty years and since then I have treated young girls with Takayasu who have fully recovered within two weeks with doxycycline. That's what you find in this book, treatments that reverse the disease process!

Medical Science is complicated and each patient is unique and different. Even if the diagnosis is MS or Alzheimer's, the treatment is not the same, in each patient the cause of the disease may be different in each patient. The response of medication is different due to the strength of the immune system. I accept no liability of any professional harm from recommendations in this book, as the treatment of the disease should be done by a professional doctor after careful evaluation of the patient. Majority of the information in this book comes from the National Library of Medicine U.S.A.

Thanks and please watch for the coming book, natural treatment of all cancers.
