Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Inner Space
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. However, when this subtle, invisible energy is disrupted, symptoms or diseases can result. The ability to restore an organism’s subtle energy that has been adversely impacted by injury, toxins, infection, inflammation, or stress represents an exciting potential in clinical medicine’s vast, new frontier: Inner space.

Spanning from 2750 BC and the medical use of electric eels for stimulating healing to current-day, innovative research of electricity to treat cancer, electromagnetic energy has made fascinating and sustaining contributions to science and medical practice. Electromagnetic therapies were used by 50 percent of U.S. physicians in 1910. 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 FSM into the 21st century by expanding its applications to help assure its ongoing relevance, establishing the reproducibility of FSM protocols through clinical research, and educating healthcare professionals in FSM training seminars worldwide.

Good 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.

Bad Vibes
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
GSMC uses FSM equipment manufactured by Precision Distributing, Inc. FSM is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medical device that 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.

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.
