Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Each of a human’s estimated 50 trillion living cells is energetically powered by a virtual “computer within” that enables cells to communicate with each other and to organize, monitor, and regulate an entire complex, dynamic organism.
When this subtle, invisible energy is disrupted, a toxic atmosphere begins to develop which results in physical discomfort, loss of energy and ultimately disease.
The use of electrical current in the restoration of a metabolic system that has been adversely impacted by injury, toxins, infection, inflammation dates back to the medical use of electric eels in ancient Greece, Egypt, and Rome when electric eels were used to treat arthralgias, migraines, melancholy, and epilepsy.

History

As recently as 1910, Electromagnetic therapies were used by 50 percent of U.S. physicians. However, in the 1930′s, these therapies were nearly driven out of existence by competitive influences that favored emerging pharmaceutical and technological advances in deference to several therapies in practice at that time.
In 1995, Oregon-based Carolyn McMakin, M.A., D.C., was given tissue frequency protocols from a retired Canadian osteopath to use in her practice. “Dr. Carol” used the frequencies on hundreds of patients who were referred to her and who had proved to be resistant to a variety of other treatments. As a group, these patients responded extremely well. Fueled by her observations, Dr. Carol ushered Frequency Specific Microcurrent into the 21st century by expanding its applications to help assure its ongoing relevance, establishing the reproducibility of Frequency Specific Microcurrent protocols through clinical research, and educating healthcare professionals in Frequency Specific Microcurrent training seminars worldwide, through which Sheridan Loudon has been introduced and trained in the technique.

Positive Vibrations

All matter is made of atoms. Negatively charged atomic particles called electrons vibrate and spin in orbits around the nucleus of atoms and, in doing so, produce electromagnetic energy. Each tissue and organ has a specific frequency that is unique from all of the body’s other tissues and organs. Because water is a conductor of electromagnetic energy and because the human body is approximately 70 percent water, people are susceptible to electromagnetic field changes, whether intentional (therapeutic) or from background environmental pollution.

Negative Vibrations

When cells are injured or diseased, the vibrational frequencies of their electrons are disrupted. The specific abnormal vibration is not only determined by which tissue is afflicted (cartilage, tendon, bone, liver, etc.), but also by the type of causation (inflammation, infection, stress, shock, injury, toxicity, etc.). These two variables determine the frequency selection and are thus essential to achieve good results.
Disturbed cellular frequencies can become “stuck,” in effect perpetuating symptoms and leaving the affected person chronically afflicted with ailments that may not yield to the usual physical interventions.

The Equipment

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) equipment is grouped by the FDA in the same category as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) units, even though FSM outputs in millionths of amperes (the same as human cells), and TENS units output in thousandths of amperes (1,000 times greater). Microcurrent devices such as FSM that deliver amperage similar to that of the body cooperatively resonate with the body’s energy, as opposed to devices that deliver amperage which forces a biological response by suppressing or overriding the body’s more subtle energy.
FSM Results 
Some patients have reported significant benefits immediately after or within 24 hours following a single FSM session. These reported benefits can be permanent, or they may last between four days to a week, with the duration of benefit lasting longer with each subsequent FSM session. Other patients, particularly those with long standing symptoms or a decreased vital force, have reported benefits only after six sessions.
Electrons that have been vibrating at disrupted frequencies for an extended period of time tend to habitually return to those frequencies, often within four to seven days following an FSM session. This situation calls for repeated FSM sessions at appropriate intervals. Though early intervention generally enhances favorable outcomes with FSM and other medical interventions, good outcomes have also been observed when using FSM for long-standing symptoms, even when other treatments have failed.
No technology, device, or technique is 100 percent effective, and FSM is no exception. Some patients may not respond. Predicting in advance who will or won’t respond to FSM is not possible. No significant or lasting adverse reactions to FSM have been reported.

General Information

FSM requires a light touch–no painful or deep pressure is involved. Bodywork or massage techniques may be used during an FSM session.
Because FSM’s amperage is similar to the body’s own cellular amperage, patients experience no sensation whatsoever. Benefits of improved cellular function include warmth, softening of tight tissues, emotional release, and reduction of pain during a session.
The therapist may deliver FSM through moist towels or thin black graphite gloves. The gloves enable the therapist to have a “hands-on” feel of the response of muscles and other affected tissues during the session and target FSM to smaller areas such as trigger points.
When normal tissue frequencies are restored, tissue function can also be restored, resulting in backed-up cellular toxins being released, and possibly the occurrence of flu-like detoxification symptoms. These symptoms have started as soon as an hour after a session and usually last two to four hours and up to a day or two. Drinking one or two quarts of water in the first two hours following a treatment is recommended to help prevent or lessen detox symptoms.

Appointment Instructions

To help achieve optimal results, we ask patients to avoid applying lotions, creams, and oils to their skin prior to their appointment and to drink a quart of water (possibly more if elderly or dehydrated) in the hour prior to their FSM appointment.  We ask all patients with appointments to avoid wearing any perfumes, aftershaves, or scented personal care products.

Home-Based FSM

Some patients may respond well to FSM, but do not experience a sustained improvement in symptoms without ongoing sessions. These patients may be candidates for purchasing a portable unit that can be programmed with their specific frequencies for safe and effective, ongoing home-based FSM.

FSM RESULTS

Some patients have reported significant benefits immediately after or within 24 hours following a single FSM treatment. These reported benefits often continue for 4 days to a week, with the duration of benefit lasting longer with each subsequent FSM treatment. Other patients, particularly those with long standing symptoms or a decreased vital force, have reported benefits only after six treatments. It is important to note that electrons that have been vibrating at disrupted frequencies for an extended period of time tend to habitually return to those frequencies. This often occurs within four to seven days following an FSM session. When this occurs, repeated FSM treatments at appropriate intervals may be necessary. Though early intervention generally enhances favorable outcomes with FSM and other medical interventions, good outcomes have also been observed when using FSM for longstanding symptoms, even when other treatments have failed.

What is Microcurrent? Microcurrent is a faint electric current that is so small it is measured in millionths of an amp. The current is so low it doesn’t stimulate sensory nerves.

FSM is gentle enough to be used on babies and yet powerful enough in its effect to be used by top athletes

How do the frequencies work? We believe FSM works on the principle of biologic resonance. Microcurrent frequencies seem to be able to resonate with biologic tissue when the frequency is correct. Once the tissue is changed and stable, it seems to be able to stay in the new configuration with proper nutritional support. Microcurrent increases ATP (energy) production in the cells of your body. In doing so, this dramatically increases the tissue’s healing rate

Do the benefits last? Every patient responds individually although the changes to the muscles created in one treatment last until the next treatment, about four to seven days.

Some clients only after 2 Treatments and have remarkable recovery. (Your muscles are used to being the way they are and may return to the old configuration if not treated again.)

It depends on the age off injury, patients hydration, diet, lifestyle, nutritional support. We are all individuals and have individual results.

What would I experience during treatment? It is unusual to feel anything during treatment because Microcurrent is at the same level your body naturally produces energy. This makes the therapy very safe and gentle in fact many patients fall asleep during treatment. Your therapist will program a specific frequency treatment to allow wellbeing energy to flow in a way that helps your body heal itself while you rest and relax on the bed.

Is there any risk? Your wellbeing is always our first concern. There is no record of any harm being done to anyone treated with Frequency Specific Microcurrent. FSM is rarely used across the brain, in patients with pacemakers, or during pregnancy. Any adverse reactions to treatment have been temporary.
