Looking back, I find that in the past, I wrote: "I find it completely strange to that the FDA rejects the idea of using electricity to destroy Microbes in the human body while having at the same time, published a white paper on the use of electricity to kill microbes in juices, milk, water, etc. While their premise is that the destruction of microbes in juices, milk, etc., 'uses' high voltage pulses, this is mainly due to the high volumes that are treated ( many thousands of gallons ) and the fact that the juices are not damaged by the high voltage pulses. Usually, only one or two pulses are applied per second at these high voltages."
It was clearly stated in the FDA's white paper as well as in scientific studies, that the use of lower voltages requires a significant increase in the number of times that the pulses are applied. Generally, voltages under 12 volts are considered to be safe to apply to the human body, provided that the current is limited to a non-injurious level. This requires that hundreds to thousands of pulses be require per second over extended time, depending on the applied voltage, current, frequency and other parameters. Also, It has been shown that a voltage as low as 1.5 volts can, when applied over long periods of time, stop or inhibit the growth of microbes such as bacteria.
There has only been one study involving humans using this type od device and it was limited in nature. Additionally, it did not test the advanced technology that is present in today's devices.
So, the issue is, is there any significant proof that low voltage pulsed electric fields ( LVPEF ) can achieve the goal of killing or destroying infectious microbes? Back in 2003, I produced a video of protozoa being completely destroyed by these pulses. While the video is of low resolution, it should be convincing enough to at least open some doors.
Not only does this video show that LVPEF is effective but there is also documentation in the form of photographs that show the complete ( or possibly nearly complete ) destruction of microbes in pond water.
Further microscopic examination of the 'zapped' pond water did not reveal any living microbes.
For this reason, we feel that it is undeniable that the effect of LVPEF on living microbes results in their destruction. This combined with numerous anecdotal reports by users of these devices in an off-label manner provides a reasonable support of their potential effectiveness in controlling or even eliminating microbes in critical situations.
Such 'off-label' use should be clinically investigated for the possible increase of survival and recovery from microbial infections.
Future studies could confirm the potential life savings, possibly even from extremely destructive viral illness as well as possibly bacterial, fungal and protozoal illness.
