I have been researching electronic muscle stimulators, as well as those electronic face lift devices Most of the EMS can be adjusted to be used as "TENS" units - that is their pulse interferes with pain signals. The muscle stimulators & the face lift units contract the muscles, but will not bulk you up as in weight lifting.
I must say that I am rather confused, as none of them really give a lot of info.
I compare the numbers. They all use 9v batteries. ( some have ac converters)
They have variable HZ 2 to 150 or more. I see that the Clark units give "KHZ" Which is more? This is the frequency of the pulsing right?
What does the volts do? I understand that you do not feel volts.
Why is there not more info on these devices as to just exactly what is th effect of milliamps vs the microamps.
These units have variable milliamps. I would assume that 0 + mA would mean that the first "notch" above 0 would be the micro amps?
They use adhesive electrodes. The face lift devices are usually hand held and have silver electrodes.
I have also been reading about electrotherapy and electro accupuncture. It is all very interesting, but the info is EXTREMELY sketchy.
So what exactly is the difference between them and the zappers?
It would seem that the muscle stimulators would be as effective as the zappers, and some of them are cheaper.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone with info or where to find more detailed info.
potentially adding to the confusing spectrum of modern electo-healing devices, for well over a year now there are some out there being advertised as capable of being switched (like via a slide-switch or rotary dial or button, etc) from TENS mode to Zapper Mode, at the users discretion.
Technically it is true that one does not feel Voltage (meausured in Volts, named after the long-ago scientist Volta) but instead they feel Current (measured in Amperes, named after long ago scientists Coulomb [koo lomb] and subsequently Ampere), but I can tell you this without doubt, the amount of electrical current one feels is the direct result of how much Voltage (electrical force) there is pushing the electrons into the movement we know as electricity. The higher the voltage, the more likely you are to feel the amperes! The other main variable in this forumula is Resistance....yep, you guessed it, measured in units (Ohms) named after yet another long ago scientist, who also formulated Ohms Law, a formula that can be transposed several ways in noting the amounts of the related values (voltage, resistance and current) in a given electrical path or circuit;
E = I X R, where E is mesured in volts (E stands for electromotive force - emf.... a really fancy alternative yet meaningful way of expressing Voltage, I = Current in Amperes, R = Resistance in Ohms. Other ways of stating the same are I = E/R and R = E/I . Coulomb had actually come up with a way of measuring and expressing how many electrons (roughly) were passing a given point in an electrical path due the force of a given voltage, but since this equated to relatively phenomenal amounts of electrons, Amperes evetually became a more practical way of expressing and measuring electrical current. There is another value known as Power that is measured in a unit we know as Watt that is another factor of the related electrical equations. Power/Watts, is an expression of how much energy is dissipated in the process of electricity (movement of electrons) flowing through a circuit (resistance) due to pressure (voltage), for which at the end of the month you get a bill that generally charges you so many cents for each watt used, typically measured in Kilowatts (thousands) or possibly Megawatts.
With devices such as Zapper, the human body - that part of it onto which the zapper output terminals are applied, provides the lion's share of Resistance through which the voltage is pushing the pulsed current. Frequency is a variable that most often comes into play with Alternating Current, however, even though the Zapper is generally designed to use Direct Current, by pulsing this DC on and off so many times per second, a Square Wave output is produced, which is not totally unlike AC. The frequency is anologous to the pulsing, the higher the frequency, the higher the rate of pulsing. Frequency is also interesting since the human body itself, as well as Mother Earth, exists and operates using various systems that each have their own associated internal bio-frequencies, or rate of operation. Hulda Clark first settled on an approximate frequency of 30,000 CPS (cycles per second, subsequently renamed Hertz by the infamous scientist Hertz), or in other words, the zapper circuit is internally being turned off/on/off to the rate of 30 thousand times per second. Since then, many other zapper designers have chosen lower frequencies, some because they postulate these lower frequencies provide a wider range of parasite-killing effects (due to harmonics, another topic within electronics).
Yeah, it's easy to get lost in the wealth of devices and technologies out there under the general category of Zapper / TENs and the like. My best advice is to spend some quality time reading the archives here as well as broadening your research into other web resources.
Zappers use a positive offset squarewave voltage (Pulsed DC) to kill pathogens. Typically 5 to 15 volts. I have a variable frequency one which is more effective because you can go to the frequenciy that kills the organism even without a positive offset. I now prefere the Beck Protocol Devices for infectious disease.
It depends on what you are using the device for. Different electrode size also makes a big difference.
Thank you all for the interesting info. It is good to find knowledgeable people when you need them.
I have another question and probably more forthcoming.
I have 2 zappers. One is the Terminator, which I like. I don't often have problems, so can't write a lot about it. This one has 2 copper pennies for electrodes. This one says it is 15 HZ. It measures 4.5 volts. I do notice that when my skin is moist it does sting and become extremely uncomfortable.
I also have a "pet zapper". I have used it on myself. This one says it is 28 HZ.
I had a problem with it. I developed a nasty ringworm around the Positive electrode. I had been sitting on the floor petting the dog before I used it.
I have read that when using magnets you should always use the Negative side because the Positive side makes things grow.
I have also read this in other electrotharapy info that I have been reading. Positive makes things grow.
Therefore, I do not understand the insistence in the info on Hulda Clark 's Zappers to use this "Positive" offset. Perhaps I misunderstand. Does this mean "Positive off (Negative on)?
Is there any reason why the Clark Zappers do not offer adhesive electrode pads (there are reusable ones)? Being tied down with her setup is a huge turn off to both purchasing them and using them.
That schematic for building your own is limited to those who can read it. In her first book she gave easy to follow instructions, and I did build one, except that I used the Radio Shack board instead of having that jungle of wires.
I wonder how hard it is to make unit that would be have a wider range of variation starting with the Microcurrents, and having an attachment that could be used as an Electro Accupunture unit, as well as the attribute of Clark's best with optional adhesive electrode pads.
It just seems to me that they are not putting out their very best efforts, and therefore are missing the opportunity to hit more "bugs" with one "stone", as well as expanding their market share and making more money.
>- I have read that when using magnets you should always use the Negative side because the Positive side makes things grow.
A magnet generates a small electrical current in anything that moves even slightly relative to is. An electrical field will generate a magnetic field whereever it flows. The fields generated by either are at right angles in polarity.
>- Positive side makes things grow
When I view protozoa and bacteria under the microscope when a zapper signal is applied, they immediately try to move away from the positive electrode toward the negative. The ones closest to the positive electrode appear to be imobilized first and destroyed first.
According to Dr. Robert O. Becker, the negative electrical electrode causes tissue repair and growth in the human body while the positive electrode kills cells including foreign bacteria in the wounded area.
Read "The Body Electric" by Dr. Robert O. Becker. It is a fantastic book.
>- 2 copper pennies for electrodes
These electrodes are way too small and concentrate the electrical energy enough to create skin burns.
>- developed a nasty ringworm around the Positive electrode
This can be caused by insufficient electrode size or incorrect material.
>- any reason why the Clark Zappers do not offer adhesive electrode pads
Yes, mostly size. The copper pipe electrodes provide a larger contact area and when combined with copper footpads there is a signal all over the body rather than just arm to arm.
>- I wonder how hard it is to make unit that would be have a wider range of variation starting with the Microcurrents, and having an attachment that could be used as an Electro Accupunture unit, as well as the attribute of Clark's best with optional adhesive electrode pads.
Not difficult except that electro-accupuncture and micro-current both require a prescription and are FDA regulated.
It seems to be where you go as to whether a prescription is needed or not. It seems that if you go to any site that has "med" anywhere in the name they require a prescription. Elsewhere no. I haven't tried to buy any of them, so I don't know if maybe on the last page where they ask for payment they ask for a prescr. Most of them have a statement in the area that describes the unit if a prescr. is needed.
Has there been anything in these forums dealing with electronic muscle stimulators?
I am reading that there are several units that are being used to tone facial muscles i.e. "electronic face lift". They seem to be especially popular in England.
No prescr. needed in USA, but in England there is some kind of permission needed, which doesn't seem to be a problem. They are selling almost on every street corner.
It would seem that a by product or side effect of using these units would be the killing off of pathogens.
So what's the difference between a TENS that has all the bells and whistles, dials and settings, double electrodes and a parazapper? Seems to me that if it does not produce a square wave length, you could easily explain how it could be modified to save people money. And what's the difference between the Rife Machine and the zapper? Did Hulda Clark rip Dr. Rife's technology off and call it her own? Wasn't she arrested for fraud?
Everything I've read about TENS, zappers and Dr.Rife is that it's all Rife Technology. Whatever it takes to heal people is what I feel should be supported at a minimal cost to consumers. We all need to earn a living but not at the expense of peoples health. I personally cannot afford to buy anything right now. I am single mother, full time student/starving artist who receives no support. Being healthy is my only resource.
I'm getting results with a TENS. I use the electrodes on my hands and feet twice a day. I also use it hooked up to a copper sheet inside a cat carrier to do my cats. This proved to me there was no placebo effect because since I've been using it on them, their coats are shinier, eyes are clearer and the girl kitty who was sick with something suddenly, is no longer sick.
I appreciate what you're doing here and hope that someday this technology can go mainstream. Optimum health should be free to those taking responsibility for themselves.
>- I personally cannot afford to buy anything right now.
I completely understand that. You only need a 9 volt battery, just tap the electrodes with your fingers. When you get tired, then you might decide to buy a zapper.
>- assume, from everything I've read, that this is the parasites and pathogens leaving my body.
It could be die-off or it could be by-products of the muscle stimulation itself. The induced contractions of muscle can create a lot of waste products that can darken the urine. One difference is that after using a zapper properly for a few days, the die-off fades away.
I have the use of a TENS unit but have never experienced the results from it that I have from a good zapper. It is great for spasms, aches, and pain.
I've been using Terminators for over 2 years. In my experience, the situation with the blemishes that occur when the zapper is left on one spot of the body too long (relative) decreased over time with regular use. Have read some theories on why this situation decreases over time, but will leave this for some other time. For some people, this may be a situation that turns them away from the Terminator, for me it's been a minor nuisance. Different spots on the body coupled with skin moisture seem to be more sensitive and more prone for this annoyance to occur. In the mean time, an easy solution is - if you have the Terminator on a spot of your body and the tingling becomes in any way uncomfortable, move it to another spot on the body, repeat as needed. Have never had this annoyance occur when using the Terminator for long periods on places with tough skin, like soles of feet, while sleeping. To me one of the nicest conveniences of the T design is that when sitting or lying down for periods, it can be put pretty much anywhere, hands-free. When upright, a simple velcro strap OR modified sock allows nearly the same.
As to the magnet, I'm aware of the North V South energy situation which also equates to positive and negative polarity not unlike electrical charges. The mere mention of magnnetic polarity as it relates to beneficial and harmful effects on humans often is the source for extended discussion that quickly evovles into something between heated debate and argument, so to make this short and sweet, Don Croft (and several others who make zappers like his with a neodymium magnet inside) orient the neodymium magnet so that when the zapper is placed with the pennies touching the part of the body to be zapped, the side of the magnet that is pointing towards the same body surface will attract the north-pointing needle of a compass. Don makes a lot of Terminators, even though I would not expect it, it's possible that by honest mistake he may assemble one with the magnet facing the undesired way. If you have a compass and want to confirm which way the magnet in your Terminator is oriented, this is easy enough to do.
You threw me off a bit with your comments that started off "....Positive magnetic polarity causing things to grow......" and ended with "therefore I don't understand why Clark uses positive offset.....". I agree with the use of Negative magnetic polarity being beneficial to humans as you described. Unless I misunderstand what you are saying, I think you are mixing a couple unrelated issues with your question. To the best of my knowlwedge, the positive offset voltage advised by Clark is a separate issue unrelated in this case to the issue of which magnetic polarity is beneficial. As for positive offset, this too can quickly evolve into debate and argument (just see many of the past threads here). I advise you dig into the archives in the Zapper Forum here and read some of the many past posts that touch on the issue of positive offset. I especially advise you read and understand some of Analog Kid's technical tutorials on this that renders the topic easy to understand. Remember, positive offset is a technical buzzword in this case that is a reference to the polarity (and scheme) of DC output voltage generated by the Clark design, (and is not a reference to polarity of a magnet).
Not sure exactly what you are describing with the "ring worm on positive penny" situation. Although it's not required, I occasionaly clean each penny using a non-abrasive, non-chemcial cleaner. Something as easy as a pencil eraser followed with a bit of warm soapy water should do the trick as well but be careful not to use so much water that some leaks to the inside of the case.
As to your questions/annoyances with typical design shortcomings, why not try a little do-it-yourself experimenting and build your own? Here is a link to help get you guide you in making a "frequency generator", a somwhat fancy generic name for Zapper / Pulser / Terminator / "electro-healing device" :) Note two schematics and another link to a PDF, with the one schematic being for simple - single frequency design, the other for an adjustable multi-freq design.
2. Energetically its not natural. In my opinion its not sound "Naturopathy" because its not natural medicine and uses man-made electrical impulses.
True, but that's not automatically a bad thing. Intercontinental air freight isn't exactly "natural", but without it there would be no fresh vegetables in the dead of winter. And without central heat you wouldn't be around to eat them. Once the plow was invented, **everything** changed (James Burke, "Connections"). Before the plow was invented, the average life span was under 25 years, some estimates putting it as low as 19 years. A little tech is a good thing.
As for electro-medicine, I agree: Nothing in nature generates continuous, medium-frequency, harmonic-rich, unipolar electron flow. Electric eels come close for very brief lengths of time, but I can't think of anything else. All of electro-medicine is non-natural. So what? Much of the ranting against big pharma on these forums is justified, but it's hard to impune an MRI as "unnatural" when you have a brain aneurysm.
