You actually have personal experience with this?
Please, I want to hear details... are you using electrical, magnetic, electromagnetic, or Rife tubes? What frequencies? Sine or square wave? How long
are your treatments and how often?
Ok, I started off before I even heard or Rife. I discovered that I could make my eyes open by applying impulses on the facial nerve (it runs just
underneath the skin), so my first contraption was a purely mechanical gadget that hooked over my right ear, intermittently pressing on the facial
nerve on my left side (i built that with duck tape on my eye-lids just to keep them open!!!).. However, I guess you can imagine what it looked like.
Being an electronic engineer, specializing in RF, and who also studied zoology, and as part of those studies, did medical physiology as a second
major, I started to think about stimulating that nerve electrically, so off I went on that direction. First prototype worked for a couple of months,
even though I had problems with electrical and chemical burns of the skin under the electrodes, however, that prototype showed me I was on the right
track, even though I could only stimulate nerves that are directly under the skin.
A couple of months later, my phrenic nerves started acting up, and after I landed in the ER almost on a weekly basis because of apneusis, a breathing
pattern where you stop breathing, until the apneustic breathing centre of the brain kicks in, which uses a different pathway to stimulate the
diaphragm, meaning I only took one breath a minute or less. Anycase, during one of those events I discovered that my breathing returned back to normal
whilst I underwent a MRI-scan.
Back home, i started working on that premise. An MRI-scanner has a strong static magnetic field, fairly strong gradient magnetic fields that pulses on
and off, and then the RF-field. So, I set out investing each one on myself, and built my theories based upon my findings, and the first prototype.
Took me a while to come up with something that works, but 2 months later, and a few more ER visits later, came up a new stimulator that kept my breath
Well, now it is 2 years later, and no ER visits since I finsihed the magnetic stimulator. Since then I have continuously worked on improving both
types, and did a lot of research on it.
The basic premise is that all cells work on a bio-electro principle. Across cell-membranes exist a tiny PD, with ion-pumps in the cell membrane, that
will activate when the voltage gradient exceeds a limit that is in the region of 70mV. Note, that I have only studied neurons in detail, but the same
principles will apply to all cells, but which ion-pumps are in each cell, will vary. Electrically, the ion punps act like voltage-controlled
resistors. If the voltage is low, you will have a resistance of around 10Mohms between the inner and outer of the cell. As well as a capacitance, in
the case of neurons, it is a few nF. If the voltage differnce across the cell-membrane increases, the ion-pumps will open and the resistance will
decrease. In the case of neurons, there are mainly 3 types of ion pumps, each with its own characteristics. The first one is the Na-pumps which acts
within a couple of uS. Slightly slower is the K-pumps, and then quite slow the Ca-pumps. There are actually electronic models out there, so you can
run your own stimulations. As you can guess, the dynamics of differnt types of cells will differ. As you can imagine, these pumps can be influenced
chemically, by increasing the ion-concentratioms outside the cell, or electrically by changing the potential... As you can also see, the cells are
quite slow acting, so a rapid changing field wont affect the cells, however, a high-frequency pulse can penetrate the body deeper than a DC or
low-frequenxy pulse, so if you gate a RF pulse (modulate its amplitude) at a low-frequency, you can have deep penetration, and the action on the cell
membranes. From that point of view, an RF field modulated at the low frequency, or a strong, but low frequncy magnetic pulses with have the same
effect. The problem with RF is the skin-effect, that limits the depth that the RF can still have an affect.
