“Modified Tesla coil”?

Really?? Seriously? Hey AmpCoil – how gullible do you think people are?

Nikola-Tesla-Coil

This is a Tesla coil!  And that is Nikola Tesla.

We started by asking, “Really? Seriously?”, so really, let’s get serious…
We believe the consumer nor the general PEFM industry is served by sales baloney, and this is about as good of an example as we’ve seen of just that…sales baloney.  Just because a Tesla coil and a PEMF coil are both coils does not mean that one is a derivative of the other, any more than a tire is a derivative of a steering while just because they’re both “wheels” and both can be used to steer a car.  Also, AmpCoil uses “modified Tesla coil” to imply their coil is somehow unique in the PEMF world.  Their coil is simply a coil of copper wire.  Other brands are coils of copper wire.  If AmpCoil’s coil is somehow a “modified Tesla coil”, then so are all the other brands of coils!
So let’s take a look at what a Tesla coil really is and see if there is any relationship between that and a PEMF coil.

From Wikipedia, we find, The Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit designed by inventor Nikola Tesla in 1891.  It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity.①

Tesla used these circuits to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, phosphorescence, X-ray generation, high frequency alternating current phenomena, electrotherapy, and the transmission of electrical energy without wires.②  Tesla coil circuits were used commercially in spark gap radio transmitters for wireless telegraphy③ until the 1920s, and in medical equipment such as electrotherapy④ and violet ray devices⑤.  A Tesla coil is a radio frequency⑥ oscillator that drives an air-core double-tuned resonant transformer to produce high voltages⑦ at low currents.  

Tesla coils can produce output voltages from 50 kilovolts to several million volts for large coils⑧.  The alternating current output is in the low radio frequency range, usually between 50 kHz and 1 MHz⑨. Although some oscillator-driven coils generate a continuous alternating current, most Tesla coils have a pulsed output; the high voltage consists of a rapid string of pulses of radio frequency⑩ alternating current.”

① A Tesla coil is used to produce electricity, a PEMF coil is used to produce a magnetic field.

② A Tesla coil is used for all of these things (none of which you would ever want your PEMF coil to do) wirelessly…but you connected your AmpCoil coil to the AmpCoil case with what?  A wire?

③ Radio transmitters, telegraphs…both wireless.  How does that have anything to do with a PEMF coil.

④ PEMF is NOT electrotherapy!  It is frequency therapy delivered via a magnetic field.  Big difference!

⑤ Violet rays are in the light spectrum.  PEMF is about as far away from that spectrum as you can get.

⑥ Radio frequencies are, like the light spectrum, are about as far away from PEMF frequencies as you can get.

A Tesla coil is a high voltage and high frequency device, a PEMF coil is a low voltage and low frequency device.

⑧ Like we said, Tesla coils produce HIGH voltage.  50 kilovolts and up.  That’s 50,000 volts!  If that’s what would work, we can all give up our PEMF machines and just go sit under electrical transmission lines!

⑨ Tesla coils produce radio frequencies.  50 kHz and up.  That’s 50,000 Hz!  If that’s what would work, we can all give up our PEMF machines and just go sit next to a radio broadcast tower near the electrical transmission lines we’re under!

⑩ Just because it’s pulsed does not mean it’s PEMF.

If you modify a circle by giving it corners your have created a square, now its no longer a circle…  its a square. AmpCoil apparently thinks they can bamboozle you into believing their squares are better than anyone else’s squares by calling them “modified circles”.  We think you’re starter than that.

One more thing to understand about AmpCoil’s use of “modified Tesla coil” to pull one over on you…

What’s in a name?
There are two accepted methods for measuring magnetic field strength, gauss (G) and tesla (T).  Gauss is named after Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (born 1777) and telsa is named after Nikola Telsa (born 1856).

It is a little like measuring in inches or centimeters, Celsius or Fahrenheit.  Each has areas where they work better or easier.  Each can be converted into the other.

1T=10,000G

To say that a coil is a “modified Tesla coil”, just because magnetic fields can be measured in tesla (T), is like saying an amplifier is a “modified voltage circuit” just because power is measured in Volts (V).

Really, you should have an apple a day!

Literally an apple a day has tremendous health benefits. We have all heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, and often those old adages from our grandparents day have real and practical value. Over time though some of the meaning gets lost and maybe the thought behind ‘an apple a day’ in modern day society might mean an apple a day keeps the dentist away. Most of my young students will tell me that they see the logic in chewing an apple might be good for their teeth, or they might even have some knowledge about how fruit is nutritious. But rarely are they aware of the actual type and kinds of vitamins that are in an apple. And most especially they do not know that the seeds and fibrous center of the apple has nutrients that could be preventative of some increased modern day killers like cancer and diabetes. The seeds of an apple contain the little known vitamin B17 and the fibrous center is an excellent colon cleanser.
 
Based on a daily value per 100g one apple provides; 8% vitamin C, 3%Vitamin K, 2% vitamin B6, 2% riboflavin, 3% potassium, 2%manganese, 1% calcium, 1% iron, 1%protein, and 10% dietary fiber. An apple helps in weight loss, facilitates digestion, improves eyesight, lowers cholesterol levels, controls blood sugar levels, helps to prevent cancer, is useful in treating anemia and reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The real value of an apple lies in it’s organic compounds. It is packed with phytonutrients and flavonoids like querctin, epicatechin, phioridzin, and various other polyphenolic compounds. It is important to know at this point that unless it is freshly pressed apple juice loses most of its nutritional value in the bottling process,
 
Armed with this knowledge one might think everyone would be eating an apple or two a day. But it seems that we Americans tend to put our preventative healthcare on the back burner until it’s too late, I for one am guilty of this. Now that I am older, wiser (hopefully) and more balanced in my knowledge of care for my health and the health of those that I love, with a desire to find the most natural, non-invasive, and effective methods for maintaining good health, I would like to share with others the things that I have learned. This is why I have gotten involved with the general promotion of PEMF technology and specifically the production of the ELEMENT as a truly affordable way to bring this technology to everyone.

How PEMF Therapy Works

PEMF Therapy: What can it do for you?
PEMF (Pulse Electromagnetic Field) therapy has been around for well over four decades and thousands of studies showing its benefit have been done (NASA alone did over 10,000 studies).  Out of those studies we now have several areas of specific therapy the FDA has approved the use of PEMF.  These areas are 1) bone healing [1979], 2) urinary incontinence therapy [1989], 3) muscle stimulation [1989], 4) cervical fusion therapy [2004], 5) depression and anxiety treatment [2006], and 6) therapy for brain cancer [2011].  Although not specifically FDA approved, we also know from these studies that PEMF therapy can help reduce or alleviate arthritis pain, neuropathy, back pain, joint pain, osteoporosis, and inflammation, as well as increase blood circulation (which helps with a myriad of conditions).  There are also many, many anecdotal studies that can be found online of how it has helped or alleviated the symptoms of Lyme, edema, MS, and many other maladies along with all of the issues mentioned above.  A review of the current FDA approvals and the vast number of studies show PEMF is a powerful up and coming therapeutic tool,
Hidden messages can have a meaning
PEMF Therapy: How do the machines work?
The way PEMF machines work is really quite simple.  A signal of a particular frequency (whatever frequency is needed for a particular ailment) is sent from a signal generator (sometimes built into the machine itself) to an amplifier which boosts the signal to a usable level and sends that signal out to a coil of wire, which like any coil of wire creates a magnetic field around the coil.
Look below for truth
PEMF Therapy: How does the magnetic field work with the body?
The way PEMF works to alleviate ailments in the body or works with the body to improve various structures is not quite so simple.  PEMF sessions break down into two basic categories or types of sessions.  The first type is applying frequencies to kill pathogens in the body that originated from outside the body and are causing the body harm.  The second type is applying frequencies that give the body signals at the cellular level to perform tasks they naturally do but need some assistance due to the deterioration our bodies go through with age, improper nutrients, stress, and/or toxins that are difficult to avoid in modern life.  The first type is like taking an antibiotic, the second type is like taking a multivitamin.

     
How does PEMF get rid of the bad things from outside the body?  To understand this, an understanding of resonance needs to be accomplished first.  Resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency.
This is demonstrated by the singer breaking a wine glass. 

When the singer creates a specific note (frequency) with their voice that is the resonant frequency of the wine glass, the glass will oscillate (vibrate) with greater amplitude (volume).  The louder the note, the more the vibration.  Soon, the glass can no longer withstand the shaking and it breaks.  The glass has its own resonant frequency (natural, or preferential frequency) due to the structure of the glass (material, shape, size, etc.)  Other notes can be much louder without breaking the glass because they are a different frequency and therefore are not combining with the glass’s natural frequency to oscillate with greater amplitude.  Two or more different frequencies (as long as any one of those is not the natural frequency in the glass) will play nicely side by side, each happy to have its part of the glass.   But if any frequency matches the natural frequency of the glass it will combine with that natural frequency to increase the oscillation of the glass.  Everything has a natural resonance frequency.  From the smallest things like an atom or molecule, to the largest things…the earth and our solar system, even the Milky Way galaxy.  By knowing the natural resonance frequency of a pathogen, you can oscillate it to greater amplitude and break it just like the singer breaks the glass.  Because the natural resonance frequency of each thing is different, you a can “pinpoint” the forces so that only the pathogen is broken.   Once the pathogen is killed (shattered like a wine glass) it cannot do its pathogen thing to you and your body can expel the dead material, although usually using a detox protocol is necessary to accomplish this.   Now you might ask, “But what if I accidentally picked a frequency that is the natural resonance frequency of my cells?  Wouldn’t that make them explode too?”  Well, yes it would.  But fortunately for us, the natural resonance of the living cells within our body are all well above the range that any PEMF machine will produce.  Although the FDA has approved the use of PEMF for only a few things, they have gone so far as to say that there are no frequencies within the range of what these machines will produce that can cause any harm.  Your cells are safe with PEMF but you may want to watch out for that microwave!
         God is love
This brings us to the second use of PEMF; to help the body do what it does naturally, but needs a little help, maybe because it isn’t working up to full capacity or maybe just to help speed healing up a bit.  An example of the latter would be bone healing.  The body will naturally heal a broken bone, but by applying PEMF therapy, the time needed to heal is significantly reduced.   In cases where the body is not working to full capacity, such as blood circulation, or maybe at all, such as neuropathy (not healing itself due to nerve damage) PEMF is a much safer way of dealing with these issues compared to drugs in order to stimulate repair or at least alleviate symptoms

Welcome

Hello everyone and welcome to our Blog Page for the ELEMENT.  We are excited about of the ELEMENT because it is a Pulse Electromagnetic Field therapy device that is very powerful yet has a small form factor.  But what excites us the most is the low cost we have been able to achieve for such a quality machine.  The ELEMENT has taken the PEMF experience to a whole new level as one of the most powerful devices that exists, allowing you to choose from long, low intensity sessions to short, deep penetrating high intensity sessions…or anything in between.  It was our goal to create the best machine available at the most affordable price and we truly believe we have accomplished that goal.

A really cool feature of the ELEMENT is its chassis, even though it is one of the most powerful units available on the market today, it is also one of the smallest in size. This allows you to have the unit set up and ready to use at all times because it will comfortably fit on a nightstand or end table.
 
Our coil design is advanced beyond the typical coil.  It is engineered to make the most of the power the chassis has to deliver.  It’s made slightly oval to better fit over the head and slightly curved to better comfortably contour to the body.  It will deliver the magnetic field where you want it and at the level you need it.
 
Stay tuned to our Blog.  Along with continued postings about the ELEMENT, we will also be posting all kinds of information on subjects such as:
 
* Proper use of PEMF
* How and why PEMF works
* PEMF session types and how they differ
* Busting the myths of some sellers in the industry
* Success stories from users
* and many more

With the ELEMENT, you use a remote device, such as a tablet, to input a frequency, or frequencies, from a wide variety of programs and apps available online.  The ELEMENT is one of the most powerful PEMF devices on the market allowing you to choose from long, low intensity sessions to short, deep penetrating high intensity sessions, or anything in between.
xxx 
Why a remote frequency device?  This is really just a technical way of saying an external device, such as a tablet, laptop, or smart phone with a program or app downloaded to generate the frequencies.  We believe this is the best way to create and control the frequencies you wish to use for PEMF sessions.  
xxx 
First and foremost because it allows you to always be “up to date” with the latest frequencies or sets of frequencies for a particular health issue, unlike systems with onboard frequencies that are locked in with older information.  
xxx 
Secondly,  we know that most people already own a suitable piece of hardware to download programs or apps onto, so why make you pay for something you already have?  Even without downloading a program or app, you can simply play a frequency directly from the internet.  Sites like YouTube have hundreds of frequencies to choose from that people have created for the benefit of everyone.

The ELEMENT chassis.  It is one of the most powerful units on the market, yet the chassis is one of the smallest in size.  This will allow you to have the unit set up and ready to use at all times since it will comfortably fit on a nightstand or end table.
xxx 
The ELEMENT coil.   The coil design is among the most advanced.  It is engineered to make the most of the chassis’s power and abilities.  Made slightly oval to better fit over the head, and slightly curved to better wrap comfortably contoured to the body, it will deliver the magnetic field where you want it and at the levels you need it,
xxx 
Choosing  a remote device.  It all comes down to what app or program you want to run.  As far as we know, the only program that has the Rife frequencies preprogrammed in is Frex16.  It only runs on a Windows platform, so you would want to use a laptop.  If that is the only thing you will be using the laptop for, the smallest, cheapest unit you can find will be plenty capable of running the ELEMENT, so long as it has an audio out jack.  The downside of the Frex16 program is that, although pretty cheap, it is not free like some of the apps, and it does not allow you to run multiple frequencies at once (it does allow different frequencies programmed to run one after the other as a single setup, just not different frequencies at the same time).  If you don’t care about preprogrammed frequencies because you are familiar with finding the proper ones to use and are comfortable with setting up apps with frequencies that you want to use as a routine, then any android device will work.  The downside of android devices is that we know of no app that has preprogrammed Rife frequencies.  The upside is there are a few different apps to choose from that will play multiple frequencies simultaneously, which seems to be the newest twist in getting the most out of using PEMF.  Again, if this is the only thing you will be using the device for, the cheapest unit you can find will still be plenty powerful enough to do the job so long as it has an audio out jack.
xxx 
In addition, one of our early users had this to say
“For the PC:
The program allows you to run multiple frequencies at once and to make and save files of those multiple frequencies. The program occasionally sells for half price and is on sale now for $34.99 until May 15th (reg. price is $70). I believe the software will save and export files for use in a music player (a playlist would allow you to play sets of frequencies in progression.) You can try it for free but it will ask you to buy it after using it a few times. Here is the site:
Android platform:
The phone app is called “Tone Generator”. (If it helps, the logo is four arches that look like a sound wave in muted rainbow colors on a black background.) NCH makes this app as well. The free version has worked well for me and I recommend paying for it if the free version is not available or fully functional for you. It is a little bit unwieldy at first as you save files with multiple frequencies but it works pretty well once you have saved several files that you want to use.
iPad and iPhone:
The free version on iPad has limited features but the full version is reasonably priced. I do not know if it is available on iPhone.
As far as convenience of use, I prefer the phone as a signal generator rather than the PC. That said, Frex 16 is very useful as a library and its progression of signals is useful if you don’t want to use multiple waves at once.”
