THE EXPERIMENTAL USE OF A 1028 CYCLES PER SECOND VOLTAGE SQUARE WAVE FOR REPAIR OF BONE FRACTURES,
 AND BONE BREAKS, CARTILAGE DAMAGE, AND CONNECTIVE TISSUE DAMAGE IN GENERAL


by

Gary Wade

 
Some years ago in a phone conversation with a voltage square wave Rife machine practitioner, I was told a story of how a horse with a non-union fracture for nine months was quickly healed by the use/application of a 1028 cycles per second voltage square wave applied across the non-union fracture (see illustration in Figure 1).  This 1028 cycles per second (cps) voltage square wave treatment protocol for the horse was provided by a dowser at the request of the Rife machine practitioner.  The dowser specified that an output voltage of 3.6 to 6.3 volts was best to use.  This corresponds to the output amplitude knob on the great majority of signal function generators set to approximately 1/3 to a little over 1/2 on (knob in straight up position).  The 1028 cps voltage square wave was to be used for broken bones for twenty minutes two to three times per twenty four hours.



Approximately a year after I received this information, I had a phone call from a man looking for a Rife frequency for helping his wife who had a non-union broken bone in her foot for also nine months.  I passed the 1028 cps information onto him and approximately three weeks later he called and thanked me and informed me that his wife’s bone break was healing very well as verified by x-ray.  Another two months passed and he called again to thank me again for his wife’s complete recovery, and to inform me that he had had a degenerated right hip joint that greatly limited his mobility.  However, after seeing the complete recovery of his wife, he had decided to try the 1028 cps voltage square wave on his degenerative hip joint.  He placed one electrode on the front side of his hip and one on the backside of his right hip and treated himself while he slept at night.  After two months of treatment he claimed his right hip joint was completely regenerated and that he now no longer had trouble walking and climbing stairs.  Well, as time passed, I continued to pass on the 1028 cps information to people in need.  I have now numerous reports of success in treating knee cartilage and knee connective tissue damage, broken/fractured bones, and connective tissue injuries throughout the body.  Wherever there is a damaged area or region, just place the electrodes so that the problem region is approximately between them.  Just how long a treatment should be for optimum results is not known.  However, all night treatments (~8 hours) have so far shown no adverse effects as long as the signal function generator output voltage is not set to high and the DC offset is not on.

As a practical example, consider the treatment of animals such as horses and dogs.  They have a fur (electrically insulating dense hair) attached to a hide.  To get the needed electrical current into the flesh the current must pass through the fur and hide regions.  To accomplish this an electrically conductive gel is needed to be worked (kneaded) into the fur thoroughly so as to make a continuously electrically conductive path from the surface of the fur to the surface of the hide.   Of course you could just shave an area big enough for electrode placement.  However, in the case of show horses and show dogs this might not be desirable.  The electrically conductive gel can be obtained on amazon.com in the form of ultrasound gel, which also doubles as an electrically conductive gel.  Most ultrasound gels now double as an electrically conductive gel, but you should check to make sure on the gel you buy.  The electrodes in general can be held in place by the use of an ace bandage or masking tape.  For example, you can buy rolls of masking tape that are ½”,1”,2”,3”, etc. wide and wrap them around the foot, ankle, and knee holding the electrodes in place.  Two large (3” plus wide) pieces of masking tape can be used to hold the electrodes on the front and back side of a hip joint.  On people it may sometimes be necessary to shave the area.  As electrodes, I use fender washers which I attach alligator clips to or I drill a hole in their edge and solder dual wires from the signal function generator to them and use heat shrink on the wires where they connect to the washer to greatly lessen work hardening and therefore breakage of solder connections to the washer (see photographs).  Be sure to use very fine steel wool to clean the fender washer soldering sites before soldering.

Just think of all of the horses out there that have connective/cartilage tissue damage in their feet, ankles, knees, and shoulders that could potentially be greatly helped by the use of the 1028 cps voltage square wave experimental therapy.

To experiment with this 1028 cps voltage square wave, you will require a standard electronic technician signal function generator, which produces voltage sine waves, voltage square waves, and voltage triangle waves.  These signal function generators are readily available on the internet.  They range from a couple hundred dollars to a couple thousand dollars.  However, you only need the cheap end units that cost around $250 to $300 including S and H.  You will want a four digit LED frequency readout panel, both a coarse and a fine frequency adjustment knobs, and a frequency stabilization circuit.  I personally use and recommend (DIGITAL FUNCTION GENERATOR, GFG-8020H) made by   GW INSTEK.  Go on Google and type in:  digital function generator, gfg-8020h, and you will find all the places you can purchase it from (see picture of the GFG-8020H below, all set up to treat a horse.  Note that all adjustment knobs and electrical connection ports that are not needed have been covered up with masking tape).

Instructions for setting up GFG-8020H signal generator:

1)   Mask off all unneeded adjustment knobs and electrical connection ports as shown in picture.

2)   Plug unit in.

3)   Turn unit on (push in green button)

4)   Push in 1K button on Range setting

5)   Push in square wave button on function setting

6)   Adjust first the coarse frequency knob and then the fine frequency knob until the LED read out is stable on 1028 cps.

7)   Plug in BNC connector of the electrodes to 50 ohm BNC output port.

8)   Connect electrodes to/across animal damage area.

9)  Adjust output amplitude to between 3.6 to 6.3 volts using a DC volt meter or just set the output amplitude knob somewhere between one third to one half on.

10) On fractures and broken bones treat for a minimum of twenty minutes two to three times per 24 hours.  For other cartilage and connective tissue injuries or damage treat for a minimum 45 minutes two to three times per 24 hours.

I am currently planning experiments where various cell types will be exposed to the 1028 cps voltage square waves and their reaction will be monitored under a microscope and be documented on video/DVD.  I will post interesting results and observations.

P.S. -    Do not use the signal function generator when using the Horse Magnetic Pulser.  The magnetic pulser unit can induce high voltages in the electrode assembly of the signal function generator and fry the electronic circuits of the signal function generator. Keep the pulser and signal function generator completely  physically apart from each other.

TRAUMATIC SOFT TISSUE DAMAGE AND ITS REPAIR USING THE HORSE MAGNETIC PULSER

By Gary Wade

The two fixes I want to discuss here are the use of a pulsed ringing magnetic field ( THE HORSE MAGNETIC PULSER) and the application of a voltage square wave (at a frequency of 1,028 cycles per second) generated by a standard off-the-shelf electronic signal function generator (-$260.00).

The Horse Magnetic Pulser unit consists of a high voltage power supply, which charges up a high voltage capacitor, which is periodically (several times per seconds) discharged through twin spark gaps into a 16 turn, 10 inch internal diameter coil of flexible high voltage wire. The electrical circuit formed by connecting the capacitor and coil together through the twin spark gap breakdown process is called a tank circuit. In our particular cases this has a natural resonance frequency of approximately 45,000 cycles per second in the form of a sine wave current. In other words, an oscillating electric current flows first in one direction while building current amplitude to a maximum value in the coil and then the current declines in amplitude until it stops and then repeats the same pattern in the opposite direction of current flow (one complete cycle) and then flows back in the other direction, etc.. This oscillation process continues until essentially all the electrical energy that was stored in the charging capacitor has been dissipated and then the capacitor begins to charge up again until it is again connected to the coil by the twin spark gaps breaking down again and the whole oscillation process repeats. This rising and falling current oscillation pattern generates a rising and falling magnetic field in all the space around the coil.

In the case of the Horse Magnetic Pulser, this 45,000 cycles per second ringing magnetic field can have significant positive biological effect out to several feet from the coil. It can also be potentially disruptive or destructive to electronic circuits up to several feet away. These oscillating magnetic fields induce electric current flows in the saline body fluids of horse and human tissue alike. These are called eddy currents and, as was pointed out in the Einstein School of Medicine patent from Feb. 23, 1993 ( U.S. patent # 5,188,738 **), when the value of these electric currents (eddy currents in our case) enter the 100 to 150 micro amps per centimeter squared range they start to become very anti-microbial and anti-viral causing deactivation of both bacteria and viruses in the blood with no apparent harm to the blood's viability...

METHOD AND DEVICE FOR TREATING OSTEOARTHRITIS, CARTILAGE DISEASE, DEFECTS AND INJURIES IN THE HUMAN KNEE


A method of determining the voltage and current output required for the application of specific and selective electric and electromagnetic signals to diseased articular cartilage in the treatment of osteoarthritis, cartilage defects due to trauma or sports injury, or used as an adjunct with other therapies (cell transplantation, tissueengineered scaffolds, growth factors, etc.) for treating cartilage defects in the human knee joint and a device for delivering such signals to a patient's knee. An analytical model of the human knee is developed whereby the total tissue volume in the human knee may be determined for comparison to the total tissue volume of the diseased tissue in the animal model using electric field and current density histograms. The voltage and current output used in the animal model is scaled based on the ratio of the total tissue volume of the diseased tissue of the human to the total tissue volume of the diseased tissue in the animal model and the resulting field is applied to the diseased tissue of the human using at least two electrodes applied to the knee or a coil or solenoid placed around the knee. The voltage of the signal applied to the electrodes, coil or solenoid is varied based on the size of the knee joint; larger knee joints require larger voltages to generate the effective electric field.

Method and Apparatus for Electrically Enhanced Bone Growth and Tooth Movement

Abstract -- Disclosed is a method and apparatus for electrically stimulating bone growth and tooth movement in the mouths of mammals. A positive electrode is placed on the gum surface adjacent the bone structure which is to be resorbed. A negative electrode is placed on the gum surface adjacent the bone tissue which is to be accreted or built up. A current source is connected, such that a small current flows between the electrodes, which has the effect of stimulating bone growth in a specific direction. In a preferred embodiment, the electrodes are placed on the gum surface adjacent a tooth, the positive electrode on the side towards which the tooth should move, and the negative on the side from which the tooth will move. Application of a small current to the electrodes will enhance the repositioning of the tooth in conjuction with normal orthodontic practices.

Device for Electromagnetic Treatment of Living Tissue

Abstract:  A solenoid device for treatment of body tissue such as bones or other regions with pulsed signals comprises a flexible flat belt for encircling a body part or cast surrounding a body part containing tissue to be treated. The belt has a plurality of parallel conductors extending along its length and has its opposite ends offset by one or more conductor spacings. The resultant aligned conductor ends are connected together to form at least one continuous coil, with the resultant unconnected outer conductor ends at opposite sides of the belt comprising inputs across which a suitable electrical signal can be connected. An adjustment device or buckle is mounted on the belt to allow the diameter of the belt to be adjusted. The buckle traps a doubled over portion of the belt circumference which is adjustable in length to change the diameter of the device to closely fit the underlying body part or cast.
