I love to help you when you ask…now I need your help

This is an article I never wanted to write. Frankly, it comes down to this…this blog, my research and customer assistance efforts is in danger of coming to an end.  And frankly, I’m going to ask for your help in an effort to avoid that outcome.

When Larry and Bob decided to co-develop the ELEMENT, they did so as two completely independent companies working co-operatively together rather than form an actual new single company entity. They also both believe strongly in rewarding those who contribute.  In so doing, they worked into the price of the ELEMENT a small commission.  Nobody is getting rich here and I make no salary, but the commission was enough to augment my regular job and allow me to run the blog and social media, which in turn has allowed me to educate the public about PEMF in general, support our customers with research and answers to their questions, and bust some of the myths, clear up some misunderstandings in the arena, and further advance the field of PEMF…OK, pun intended.

It took three to four months before the blog bore any fruit. Once it did, it grew pretty rapidly and was the only means by which people could read about the ELEMENT etc.   By six months in, the blog and my Facebook work together were creating enough sales that I could see my work could continue.

Larry’s career has largely been in hardware/software integration. He knows how to really get good results for SEO (search engine optimization).  It took him 8 months to get around to going live with his company’s (Sentient Light) website for the ELEMENT.  When Bob and I decided we could afford to get a website up and running for the ELEMENT, we decided it should not be Bob’s company (Tiverton Audio) website but instead should be a neutral site about the ELEMENT alone.  In the meantime, Larry took just about all of his website content from my blog.  At the time, I was OK with that, after all we are a team working together to put the technology into the hands of those who need it.  I just had no idea what it would lead to.

This all created an unintended situation. People are coming to the blog to learn about PEMF and the ELEMENT and get their questions answered but then going to Larry’s website to purchase.  Of course, they didn’t know we are separate companies doing the ELEMENT as a co-venture.  Even if I had a chance at having SEO almost as good as Larry’s my photos, articles, etc. that he used on his website come up first.  When someone sees two identical photos, they will always click on the first one.

If I want to be able to keep this blog, my Facebook group, and my research and assistance going, I have to get people to purchase through me, otherwise I just can’t make this work financially.

Please, if you want to see my work continue, spread the word…buy your ELEMENT through me and this blog, or through the company neutral website we created (elementpemf.com). Besides, I give better after the sale customer service anyway! (if I don’t say so myself)

What’s up with all these frequencies in a set?


color blocks

By Bob Bridges

We have all heard that one must match the resonant frequency of a pathogen in order to kill it. One particular frequency.  Each pathogen having its own resonant frequency, therefore requiring a unique PEMF frequency to match it.  So why are there so many frequencies in some PEMF frequency sets?  What do they all do?  How did these frequency sets develop to include all the frequencies in the set?  Why should we care?

Frankly, some don’t care…they just run what’s there and have faith that someone came before them and figured it all out. Some care because they want to know as much as possible about the processes they are performing on themselves…that’s a great reason to care.  Still others care because they want to make sure they are not running any pathogen killing frequencies in the beginning stages of using PEMF, preferring to build up proper body function first.  Yet another group cares because they want to limit Herx reactions by doing mostly body function building along with one pathogen at a time.  Of course, there are those who care for more than one of the reasons listed, or for reasons I have not even thought of yet.

This all came up, and inspired this article, because there has been more than one person who wrote down all of the frequencies in a pathogen set and…wanting to not deal with pathogens at this time…proceeded to write down on a list of “sets to avoid” the name of every frequency set that contained any of the frequencies in the pathogen set. This would pretty much eliminate everything, taken to the extreme of reviewing every pathogen set that exists!  The assumption was, if it’s in a pathogen set it must be a pathogen killing frequency.  More accurately, they probably knew only one of the frequencies in a pathogen set was for killing the pathogen…they just didn’t know which one so tried to play it safe by eliminated all the frequency sets that contained any of the frequencies in the pathogen set being reviewed.

If you want to take this approach, I recommend you do it the other way around. Instead of assuming all frequencies in a set are possible “kill” frequencies and therefore go on the “don’t use no matter what sets they appear in” list, I recommend you figure most frequencies in a pathogen set are NOT the kill frequency.  Then take any frequency in the set and do a search on it.  If it appears in any frequency set that is definitely not a pathogen set (you can usually tell by the name), then it must not be the kill frequency within the pathogen set.  It’s OK if the frequency being investigated is found in other pathogen sets…it may be a supporting frequency there, and in the pathogen set you originally saw the frequency in.  Just look for it to be in a non-pathogen set and you will know it’s not a kill frequency.

OK, so why all the frequencies in a set in the first place? I think there are several reasons.  This is just conjecture on my part, of course.  There may be more reasons than I’ve thought of, but here’s what came to mind for me:

  1. PEMF is best viewed holistically. It makes sense that body function building frequencies would go hand in hand with a pathogen kill frequency.
  2. There may be common co-infections…with Lyme there’s at least a dozen…so frequency sets for one particular pathogen may contain common co-infection frequencies.
  3. There may be more than one cause of a malady so frequencies addressing the different causes may be in the same frequency set.
  4. Different researchers found different frequencies that achieve the same result, so both are included.
  5. More often than not, there are more than one herb or nutrient that can be used on a particular issue. One direction works for some people and not for others, and vise versa for another direction. Same with PEMF. So, both are included because the list makers can’t know which you will respond to.
  6. There may be groups of frequencies within a larger set that researcher have found to work better when run together…the whole is greater than the sum of the parts sort of thing…so they usually appear together when included in a larger set.
  7. A frequency set may include frequencies for the disease and for the symptoms. Diseases that cause pain are a good example. Pain relief is desired but working on it without working on what caused the pain in the first place would not be a good long-term solution.
  8. I’ve read that a set might include a frequency simply because one person reported they found it to work for them so it just gets propagated along from list to list. Don’t forget, researchers are trying to find frequencies that work. Nobody is trying to eliminate frequencies that appear on lists but don’t really do much, if anything. The natural tendency then, is for lists to contain more frequencies rather than fewer frequencies.

We have to remember that we are all pioneers in this developing modality. It’s still experimental.  As such, in my opinion, we are better served to error toward too many rather than too few.

Duration for each frequency in your PEMF session.


This article goes out to Katie, who asked the question of how long each frequency should be in duration for a PEMF session. Others have been bantering it about too, and there seems to be no “general consensus”, at least that I can find or any other writer sights, that can be used as a “go to” source for this information.

Since there seems to be no consensus, I will do my best to put together the puzzle pieces, do the math, gather the different sightings, and generally answer the question as best I can.

So far, the only sighting I have found, although people say there are other sightings out there (I just can’t find them and those saying they exist are not coming forth with any links, book titles, etc. to show where they are seeing such), is from Nenah Sylver’s book, “The Rife Handbook of Frequency Therapy and Holistic Health” ** and there she only addresses “rifing” or plasma machines.  Time frames with plasma machines may or may not translate directly to PEMF so I won’t quote what she has to say in this regard, but the principle of knowing the factors that should be considered in determining session durations are universal so I can quote her on these.

Dr. Sylver says, “…there are so many variables that influence the transfer of energy in the body, both between cells and within the cells. Some of these variables include your body chemistry, diet (amounts of nutrients and salts consumed), the severity of your condition, and your stamina.  Other factors include the unit you’re using, the penetration power of the frequencies, and even the time of day that you are rifing.  These circumstances vary not only between rifers, but even with the same person over time.”

To Dr. Sylver’s list, I would add your hydration level, your detoxification protocols, and even your state of mind. There are undoubtedly additional factors that should be considered.

What information can we find that comes from someone who should have the knowledge and are not associated with any particular machine? The first I can think of is FreX16.  Knowing that Ken Uzzell, the author of FreX16 is a clinician, not just a programmer, and does not sell or endorse any particular machine gives me some confidence he knows what he is talking about, or at the least that it’s not based on the prejudice of knowing the limitations of his own product.   FreX16 frequency sets default to 300 seconds, or 5 minutes for each frequency in the set.  In some sets there is additional information in the description area of the set that indicates different time lengths are appropriate for particular frequencies.

The author of Z-App, who is not a clinician but is a brilliant young researcher and programmer also uses 300 seconds per frequency as the default in that program. However, as we look through the frequency sets in Z-App, it becomes pretty apparent the sets were copied from FreX16.

Other than those two programs, I can find nothing in terms of default settings for time. Virtually all of the other signal generator programs don’t have any pre-sets in frequency or duration, or ones that are at least viewable and/or settable.

Because of this limitation of sources, let’s add in a source that is associated with a particular machine and let them weight in. To get a proper and translatable reference, we need to at least limit our selection of sources with their own brand of machine to ones with machines of the same type and power level of the ELEMENT.  That leaves only one, the Doug Machine, or Doug Coil as it’s sometimes called.   Beyond the Doug Coil, there simply is no other machine (for home use) that comes close to the power level and frequency range of the ELEMENT.  I have not been able to find anything published by Doug MacClean or directly connected to the Doug Coil.  The closest I have is the page posted here by Donna.

I have gone through the page and the website it comes from. In the end it is a website that was completely written by one person.  She does not say where her information regarding duration times of 15 seconds, wait a week, then 30 seconds, etc. comes from, so unfortunately, it is no more (nor less) valid than if I made a claim here on my blog that every frequency should be run for at least 10 minutes!  There is value in this page, however.  You can take it as one real person’s experience and what seemed to work for her…but remember, everyone is different and you are the only one who can balance the variables mentioned above.

Where does all of this leave us for making a determination?  Sadly, it leaves us with experimentation, faith that the only independent place we can find duration (FreX16) is from knowledge and experience, and one other factor.  That factor is the relatively recent statements that if you are using a microbe frequency, you need to run it for at least 3 minutes.  I have been able to corroborate this from more than one unrelated sighting, Dr. Sylver being one of them.  I’ll add to this that I can find no sighting anywhere of detrimental effects of running too long of a session, only that shorter sessions are sufficient.   However, there is plenty out there discussing the adverse effects of too short a session, anywhere from just being ineffective to being a stimulant to the very things we are trying to remove (microbes and cancers mainly).

For me, I just run the FreX16 default time of 300 seconds per frequency and have receive great results.

Periodic Table

We’re excited to have our new ELEMENT website up and running. Looking through it, we noticed something.  We wanted it to be about the ELEMENT of course, but we also wanted it to be about helping people.  What better way to show that than to have real ELEMENT users represented?

We would like to create a collage of photos of real users using their ELEMENT PEMF machines. We hope you’re not shy and would be willing to send us a photo of your machine being used (by anyone, even your pets).  We would love to add it to our photo collage.  You don’t have to show the chassis (although it’s great if you do), mainly just the coil and user.  We would like candid shots, not staged.  If you have to stage your shot, make it look candid (so we’ll never know!).

We will not post any names or locations. Who knows, you are all early adopters…maybe your image will be famous when we become really well known.  Fame without being known, now there’s a concept!

Did you get my title?  We’re putting together a bunch of ELEMENTS!

We appreciate you all!


My daughter coiling for nerve damage.

pictures-of-helping-each-other-helping-each-other-nata-khintibidze-for-kids     Actually, not just one announcement…three announcements.

The first is our web site purpose built for the ELEMENT is up and running. We think it’s a thing of beauty but would appreciate any feedback we can get from those who visit it.  Just be honest, tell us what you really think…that’s how we can improve it as we move forward.

The second announcement is that we are now FreX16 resellers. By taking this on, we can save you a bit on the registration cost.  We buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you.  It should also make getting your registration ID and number easier.  This will save you some time and trouble.  Contact myself or Bob to arrange your purchase.

Our final and best announcement is, as a way to celebrate the new ELEMENT web site (www.elementpemf.com) and our arrangement with FreX16, we are offering free FreX16 to anyone who buys their ELEMENT through the new ELEMENT web site (or this blog) by contacting myself or Bob during the month of July (for the August build).

We are excited…about the new advances and about being able to help more people!

What frequencies do I need to use?

PEMF frequencies break down into two basic groups, below 100Hz and above 100Hz.

Frequencies below 100Hz are referred to a “cell signaling” frequencies and will help with disease that originates from within the body (breakdown of normal body functions). They tell your cells to do things they would otherwise be doing naturally if your body systems were working optimally but for one reason or another are not.  This could be caused by many things such as compromised immune system, lack of proper diet, injury (such as a broken bone), environment, and so on.  Frequencies in this range can aid in improved blood circulation, better digestion, relieving inflammation, reducing pain, and the healing of body systems that are not damaged beyond healing.  For example, the FDA has approved the use of PEMF for bone healing.  The frequency used for this is 76.6Hz.  Although there are many cell signaling or healing frequencies above 100Hz, the most basic and general wellness ones are in the 100Hz and below range.

In the frequencies above 100Hz you find the “resident frequencies” of pathogens. If you have disease that originated from outside the body (bacteria, viruses, or generally all pathogens), the only way PEMF will affect them is to use the frequency that matches their resident frequency.  It causes them to vibrate to the point of destruction.  The resident frequency of virtually all pathogens is well above 100Hz.

Can PEMF be used near the braces on my teeth?

Can you be put into an MRI without problems? If so, you will feel no adverse effect from PEMF.  If you cannot be put into an MRI, you should still be OK but you will want to start out with low volume and short duration sessions (volume would be more important than duration to keep low), then increase from there, especially if you are placing the coil near your stomach away from your head.  If your braces start to warm up, then just back it off a bit.  If they are stainless steel with very little iron content, they should not be affected at all because they would not be magnetic and PEMF is a magnetic field.

Braces or even joint replacements can be OK with PEMF but people with pacemakers should never use PEMF systems.

Is the ELEMENT device audio frequency only, or is it converting audio to PEMF?

All PEMF machines use frequencies that are in the hearing range, so by definition they are all audio frequencies.

So yes, technically we are using a signal Generator (software loaded on a tablet, laptop or smart phone) to send an audio frequency (or set of frequencies) through the amplifier and out to the coil which then becomes an electromagnet with a field at the frequency being sent to it.  This is pretty much how all of the higher-powered brands work…the ELEMENT, the Doug Coil, the AmpCoil, and the PEMF8000.  The lower powered brands are similar except they use capacitive discharge to create the frequencies (even though they are still “audio” frequencies).  This method also works but is greatly limited in the amount of gauss that can be produced, which in turn limits the strength of the magnetic field as well as the range of frequencies that it can reproduce.  This is why the lower powered brands all use a limited number of onboard frequencies to choose from.  With the higher-powered brands, you can send any frequency to the unit.  The Doug Coil does this with a series of switches on the frequency generator module, the AmpCoil does it with the BetterGuide app, not sure exactly how the PEMF8000 does the frequency generation, and the ELEMENT allows you to use any app or program you want to create the frequencies you want to use.  Ours allows the widest range of frequency options, both in terms of what the frequency is, and in terms of how it’s generated.

How long does it take to get an ELEMENT?

We don’t invest in raw parts or finished inventory, so we don’t have to have a “return on investment” for those things like most companies. We can pass that savings on to you, and in fact, this is how we save you the most.  This is referred to as manufacturing “to order” rather than “to stock”.  This also saves the cost of space for, and the management of, inventory which also helps lower the price.  We take orders all month and close the batch on the last day of the month.  Then it takes from 3 weeks to a month to buy all the parts for, and build that batch.  We invoice $1000 down when you place your order and the balance plus shipping when the machine is ready to ship.  In essence, during the last week of each month, we ship all of the units sold during the previous month.

Does the ELEMENT have the same capabilities as the $8000 AmpCoil?

Assuming you are referring to the claim they make about their “BetterGuide” software diagnosing disease through voice analysis and automatically setting up the proper frequencies to run. It is our opinion that BetterGuide doesn’t do what is claimed. If they could truly diagnose disease, why are they not making millions just selling the software to the medical industry, or won a Nobel prize in medicine? Some quick internet research will yield articles showing places like MIT, the Mayo Clinic, and others are working on voice analysis but are decades away from any practical use of the technology.  They also claim their coil is a “modified Tesla coil”. This is a marketing buzz word. Tesla coils use extremely high voltages and frequencies, and are extremely dangerous to be near. A little research on the internet will show you this. PEMF coils do not use those dangerous levels. It may make their coil sound special, but it is not anything like a Tesla coil. Thankfully.

So, to address the question…the ELEMENT actually gives you more capabilities. The chassis is improved compared to the AmpCoil with additional protection circuits. Our coil has been redesigned (based on what we have learned over the years) to reproduce a better range of optimal frequencies.  Their coil has also been redesigned, but from the standpoint of cost savings, so they actually made their coil have a much narrower range.  Also, AmpCoil, again based on cost savings, reduced their power level down from 2500 watts to only 250 watts.  They no longer have the power needed to deal with pathogens.

We save you money by not making you pay to duplicate a signal source, since any tablet, smart phone, or laptop can be used to create the frequencies to be input into the ELEMENT. Our machine is lighter and small enough to be set up all the time without being in middle of the floor. And of course, there is the $6000 price difference.
