As 2018 ends and 2019 begins, I wanted to do a review of the last year, and my use of the ELEMENT. Probably the most important thing I have learned in that year is the importance of hydration. You know, fat puffy cells being able to osculate in their most efficient and magnificent way. When I really started to take this SERIOUSLY, I definitely saw and began to reap the awesome benefits of water. Hydration is, after all, taking in water from an array of sources. Some of the food sources that will hydrate you the best are cucumber, watermelon, lettuce, tomatoes, pineapple, oranges, cantaloupe, peaches, strawberries, bell peppers, zucchini, blueberries, spinach, carets and cauliflower. If you take in your water by drinking, well, water, one way to help absorb more of it and aid the liver in detoxing is to add fresh lemon.
In reviewing the use of the ELEMENT over this past year, the issues I have been working on are 1) neuropathy, 2) Diabetes, 3) restless leg syndrome, 4) insomnia, 5) depression, 6) sciatica, and 7) severe back pain. The neuropathy, restless leg syndrome, sciatica, and sever back pain are mostly from nerve damage due to diabetes, but complicated by a back injury I suffered a few years ago. I’ll go through each of these issues, the use of PEMF on each, and the results I’ve experienced so far.
Before getting into the particular things I’ve been working on, I would like to lay out that when it comes to PEMF, the routine I have established over the past year, which for most of that time has been very consistent, is within each week I take one to two days off (when it’s two, they are consecutive days), I coiled this way six weeks on and one week off through the year, and after coiling for 11 months took one full month off. These periods of time off not only let my body rest and recuperate from the treatment, but almost as important is that it gave me time to access the improvements, or at least changes, in the status of those things I was, and am, working on. That’s how I know what’s real and what’s not real.
One example of seeing the improvement is with my neuropathy. For me, neuropathy causes pain, a feeling of freezing (normally, people get a burning sensation), and a feeling of being on pins and needles in my feet…along with constant twitching of my toes. Before I was introduced to PEMF, my toes had been involuntarily twitching for more than two decades. After my first treatment with PEMF (it’s been a few years ago now), the twitching went away for about one month. In fact, it was because of this that I told Bob at that time we must get involved with this technology. I wasn’t able to get my own machine until a little over a year ago and was only getting occasional relief when I could use a machine from time to time. Even once I got my own machine, for the first half of this past year, I did frequencies for neuropathy only once in a while. The twitching would return after a few weeks (none of the other feelings ever did come back). Then I learned that I needed to really work on it consistently if I wanted to accomplish actual nerve repair…really get at the cause of the problem. I ran FreX16 pre-programmed frequency sets for “Nerve, disorders and neuropathy” but also added from Z-App “Myelin rebuilding sequence”. For four months of the second half of the year I did just that. I moved on to other concerns during November and rested my body from all PEMF treatments for all of December. Now I have a chance to access the results. My toes have not twitched for the two months that I have not done any neuropathy frequencies! Two months without this is a miracle when compared to the more than two decades I lived with the condition. I will watch it closely but I really am thinking I won’t have to do much more than a bit of “touch up” every six months or so. We’ll see, and I’ll let you know in a future post.
For a bit of background, I have been a diabetic for over 30 years. The longer you have a disease, the longer it takes to get it under control. I used “Diabetes 2” from FreX16. I ran this every time I coiled for the months of September and October. I saw minor improvements overall but was able to reduce my insulin from 21 units down to 16 units, which is good progress. Another ELEMENT user suggested that it might be caused by a pathogen and gave me frequencies for that. When I ran those, I had a herx reaction, so he may very well be right. At this point, I still run the diabetes frequencies to maintain the slight gain I have had, but I have essentially put working on my diabetes on hold so I can plan around having the herx…’cause they’re not fun…but seriously, I can’t work the next day.
Restless Leg Syndrome:
For this I used “Stimulate, repair nerve damage 1 & 2” from Bruce Stenulson’s list. Starting in March, I added it to the neuropathy frequencies whenever I ran them. Still working on it but the current result is that I’m down from 900mg to 300mg of Gabapentin, the drug I take to combat the syndrome.
I have battled insomnia from time to time over the past decade. It had been getting worse in the early part of last year. A few months ago, I added it to a few of my other routines to see if it would work for me. I started with FreX16 frequencies for “Insomnia” and really didn’t have much, if any, improvement. Then I added “Sedation and pain relief” to run just before “Insomnia”. Although I sometimes still have trouble sleeping, I do find I get better sleep when running these two sets together.
I’ve had bouts of depression from high school on. I was diagnosed with “clinical depression” about 10 years ago. Over the years, I have taken a few different things for it. The only one that worked at all was Wellbutrin, but it was only minor improvement. My father passed away in April of 2017 and then I had to move my mother to the Seattle area from Chicago in July of that year. Without getting into the details, having to take on the role of care giver for my mother added to the issues that are always going on with my daughter and put me in a depressive state of about a 7, when 10 is the worst I’ve ever had…what I had after the third suicide within my siblings (there have now been 4). Around April of 2018 I figured I had nothing to lose to try FreX16 frequencies. I ran it for one session and have not had to run it since!
I had a fall four years ago that really screwed up my back and caused sciatica pain down both legs, although the most severe pain was on the left side. Over the years I had two cortisone shots, a course of Prednisone (a steroid), two nerve root blocks, and physical therapy which included using a T.E.N.S. unit. None of these things helped at all except one of the cortisone shots helped my right side a small amount. I added “Sciatica 1 & 2” from FreX16 to my neuropathy routine early last year. It is one of the frequency sets I ran most often…until June. I have not had sciatica pain since then. Three years of western medicine did nothing, a little over six months of PEMF took care of it.
Sever back pain:
The sciatica pain, combined with scoliosis and two bulging disks, plus a little arthritis in my hip, is what ultimately drove me to take opiates (before we had ever heard of PEMF). I was on morphine, hydromorphone, and cyclobenzaprine for more than a year. I was about as addicted as you can get, but at least I could function…something I was not able to do without them. The first thing I explored when I got my ELEMENT was frequency sets for back pain. It took a little experimenting to find what worked but, in the end, I was able to wean myself off of opiates within six months of having my machine. If you have never had to take opiates, you might not know just how amazing this is. My physiatrist told me that only 2% of people who start opiates ever get off of them…for the rest of their lives! When I told him I was off the drugs, he told me, “You know, I’ll get credit for this, but I didn’t do anything that really worked. It’s what you did.”
In closing, I would like to add that I usually run inflammation and blood circulation frequency sets with almost everything else I run. If I put all of my issues on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being all of my combined issues when the year started, which was when I got my ELEMENT, I feel I am now at 3. Still some work to do, mostly with getting my diabetes under control, or eliminated altogether, but overall, I would say I personally have had great success with PEMF.
