ELECTROMEDICINE RESEARCH HOBBY
Although deeply interested in alternative medicine and the empathic arts in general, I also have an extensive background in electronics engineering, and some in bioelectronics. When I was led to my first encounter with electronics as used in alternative healing modalities, I decided that this was a "natural" for me to do personal hobby research on the electronic gagetry recently developed for improving health, classed as "microcurrent devices." And I have also collected much info and dato on the ones that have presented themselves to me.
As one of my hobbies, I've dabbled in two types of alternative health electronic gagetry, one type that fits into the classical electronics theory and bioelectric system concetual base; the other type fitting into a more mysterious technological system functioning on the wholeness aspect of things.
Microcurrent devices, such as those designed by biophysicist Bob Beck, Ph.D, and cell physiologist Hulda R. Clark, PhD., appear to follow the classical laws of electronics and biology, as far as I can tell.
HULDA R. CLARK'S RESEARCH
Hulda R. Clark, PhD.'s work used refinements of herbal remedies for ridding people of a wide range of illnesses, yet her diagnostic tool was called a "Synchrometer", a device which uses the wholeness-aspect of things (as far as I can tell yet.) Her books "A Cure for All Cancers" and "A Cure for All Diseases" describes in detail how to build and learn to use a Synchrometer. (I have built a Synchrometer; yet I struggle with mental blocks as to doing the series of lessons to learn its use; but there does seem to be a clearly-discernable signal change when the wholeness-field aspect is activated, in my opinion. More to be learned later, I hope.) This device uses the user as part of the measurement system much more so than does conventional electronic instrumentation, and so requires special training in its use. It is said to be an order of magnitude more sensitive than conventional analytical chemistry technology permits, as proveable by a simple technique she describes in the book.
In the more recent "Cure for All Diseases" book, Clark also describes how to explore a biofield resonance mechanism, to identify biological organisms by a characteristic range of ordinary sinusoidal waveform frequencies combined within her Synchrometer along with the wholeness-field of the subject organism. For example, she found molds and mycotoxins from about 80 to 300 KHz, bacteria and viruses at 300 to 420 KHz, protozoa and round/flat worms at 350 to 440 KHz, tapeworms at 415 to 500 KHz, an ant at 1.2 to 1.3 MHz, a chameleon at 1.4 to 6.4 MHz, a cat at 1.5 to 8 MHz, and a human at 1.6 to 9.2 MHz. She also found that then directly-stimulating said organism with excess ordinary electrical waveform frequencies of their characteristic resonance frequency, would permanently injure or kill them: useable as a pathogenic healing tool against micro organisms, also as a guideline for safety for human electromagnetic exposure. There is room for a tremendous amount of health research here.
During the course of her research into this biofield resonance mechanism, she fortuitiously discovered that if her waveforms were entirely offset so they were monopolarity, never reversing direction into a set of handholds, not only did the specific frequency-selected microorganism perish, but also did a broad spectrum of other pathogens at the same time. Along with her electronics engineer son's help, this was developed into what she calls a "zapper", a device which chops a 9 volt battery voltage at a rate of about 30 KHz, and is applied through a 1K limiting resistor to copper pipe handholds covered with a water-soaked paper towel layer, to prevent metals contamination. She indicates usage as a 7-minute application of this microcurrent for 3 times spaced 20 to 30 minutes apart, can be done daily; only contraindications mentioned are in pregnant women and pacemaker users, though only because of inadequate research done on them yet.
SQUARE VS SINE WAVEFORMS
A comment on the use of square waves as applied to the human body (instead of single-frequency sine waves): The use of pulses in Hulda Clark's "zapper" microcurrent device inherently generates high frequency harmonics of the output pulse frequency, since pulses are made up of overlayed sinewaves of many harmonic frequencies, adding together so as to create the square pulse shapes, according to classical Fourier analysis theory. Such harmonics could reach into the danger zone for people in some circuit configurations, harmonics which exist at 1.6 MHz and above. However, her circuit design uses a pulse frequency of less than 40KHz, from a pulse output source of a 555-type integrated circuit, which has a limited bandwidth, minimizing harmonics above the 1.6 MHz range, so not thusly considered potentially dangerous. The duration-amplitude effects on the human being needs methodical research to determine severity of problems with these frequencies, if any.
The use of this "zapper" is part of a greater regimen of analysis, herbal and avoidance modalities, depending on what specific problems the person has. Her above-mentioned books describes a great many of these combinations in detail.
In my opinion, electromedicine is a field deserving of further urgent widespread creative research. Hulda R. Clark's "zapper" microcurrent 555-timer-based device especially deserves widespread intelligent research, being inherently inexpensive, safe, and easy to use.
