FSM is a wonderful new tool.  In the naturopathic medical office where I work, we've been using this tool for a long time and it has really helped me.  It is somewhat similar to a rife machine - it deals with passing electric current into your body at a very low frequency, and when you hit the right frequency for the right imbalance or ailment, it corrects it.  It is fascinating and wonderful - for the treatment of so many ills from immune support to healing broken bones and ligaments.
