Electronics Wellbeing Hobby-type Research Comments

by James Edward David Cline

Of special interest re my HRC-type Zapper research

My initial research goal was to prove the safety of the Clark-type Zapper. My decades of exposure to signals not too unlike that of the zapper, while employed as electronic technician, indicated that a pulsing 9 volt peak signal across the hands would not be injurious. Determined to be sensitive for any indication of any sign of uncomfortable effects, I set out to use the Zapper for the full 3-set sequence, 7 minutes on three times in a row with 20-30 minutes wait in between them, every day for a full year. And I completed that goal, and extending it months beyond the original 12 months, and sometimes using the Zapper more often than the basic 3 x 7 minutes per day.

Results are first, that it obviously did not kill me, as opponents said it would do, current through the heart and all that. Next, about 2 weeks into the experiment, several "spontaneous remissions" occurred: the decades-long sinus infection almost dissappeared (but leaving a very sensitive sense of smell and to airborne particulates, not always so desireable a sense); and the bronchitis along the base of my lungs went away first time since a child; and although I did not notice it at first, a psychologist friend of mine during routine conversation noticed that I no longer went around in chatty circles about my problems even though I had the same life problems, I merely identified them, did what could be done for them, and then dropped them to go on, no longer in a tailspin over some unfixable problem of life... attempting to find the cause of this unexpected welcome happening, digging into the unread middle part of the thick HRC book "Cure for all Diseases", I then read that the Zapper could dispose of parasites such as Ascaris and Strongliodes, sometimes cought from pet cats and dogs, which sometimes made pathways into the brain and their ammonia waste products couldn't be broken down by brain enzymes, so they caused irritation, sometimes resulting in low level depression and related mental effects... it seemed that I had inadvertently found affirmative results for that theory too, even though I had not read the theory in the book before finding the results. My health remained quite fine that whole year, and generally since then too, now many years later at this writing, in 2002.

Another remarkable incident which helped convince me that the zapper did not merely give the mind some incredible powers of healing, but the Zapper did the work itself, happened some years later when I had a short term job (long out of conventional electronics work at the time) doing caretaker work at a 5-acre facility which still had building and structures on it left over from when it was a horse stable. I was doing heavy yard work one day when my left hand got jabbed by a sharp rotted piece of wood in the ground, ripping out a hunk of skin about 3/4 inch across and 1/2 inch wide, jagged, and the wound was full of black crud. I was doing work that could not be stopped then, working alone. I was able to take a break about 15 minutes later, the wound already starting to show signs of festering... I had no first aid supplies, but I was able to wash the wound out thoroughly with a garden hose. Then I remembered the emergency 30 KHz pulse generator zapper I had built experimentally years before, one that would plug directly into a car's cigarette lighter. I found it in the car, plugged it in, put wet paper towel material (remaining from a fast food meal's leftover napkin) around the handholds, did 10 minutes of "zapping", then went back to work. That evening back at home I did the other 2 zaps with my usual zapper. The next morning, I was astonished to find the ragged large wound totally free of appearant infection. In fact, it was so free that it was not gluing back together, so I had to put tape over it to close the wound up. I zapped each day as usual, and when I took the tape off several days later, the wound had healed up well and soon not even a scar was appearant. Worried then about my immune system, a couple of weeks or so later I got a smaller puncture back on that job, and I merely washed it out, but did not use the zapper... the next day it was red and swollen, like pre-zapper days effects. Then used the zapper and it too cleared up soon thereafter.

I have found unfortunately that there are a few toxic substances, including a glue, that block the zapper's effectiveness, so it has weaknesses.

Conclusion: My research into the HRC-type zapper strongly indicates that it is an economical, effective tool for maintaining one's health, in very many ways. Thus it is a puzzle as to why every person does not have one in their first aid kit, always within easy reach, since it would remove much of the burden from our overstressed health care system, among its farther-ranging benefits, as indicated by my findings. And that electrohealing technologies in general surely deserve a major research effort by people responsibly interested in maintaining the health of this nation and the world.

Thoughts on my overall involvement with building and exploring HRC-type Zappers and related technologies:

My building and exploring usage of HRC-type Zapper devices and related technologies, is like a handcraftsman who builds a chair just for the self-entertainment, the joy of building something, admiring his handiwork and experience during the making of it. Completed chair then handy, he also sits in it to relax sometimes too, to rejuvenate. I consider my expenses in building and experimenting with Zappers as an "entertainment" expense. I consider "entertainment" as a portion of a more general group of "rejuvenation" or recreation, that is, something that restores wellbeing to mind, body, emotions, and/or spirit. So, besides the artistic-physical stimulation of building such things as Zappers (9 volt peak pulse generators, usually around 35 KHz) and playing with them to see what they can do, I found that the result also provides some very significant measure of wellbeing on the physical and emotional levels too, a "plus" for the experience just as the handcraftsman might enjoy relaxing in the chair he had entertainingly built previously. Note that this is self-entertainment, an introverted type of thing, in contrast to entertaining someone else, which would be an extroverted form of activity.

Thoughts about the term "therapy" vs. my kind of involvement:

If someone uses the term "therapy" re the Zapper, this reminds me that some people have an entirely different set of purposes in mind, even though involving similar things. Hulda Clark, Ph.D, no doubt has a compulsion for creative endeavor focused on understanding human good functionality, and exploring for ways to restore wellbeing along the way. Yet her writings point out the potential applications of her work, in therapy of many kinds. "Therapy" differs significantly with what I do re zappers and such. I consider "therapy" is an emergency "pull the fat out of the fire" response to some trauma, a frantic patch-up repair of debilitating injury of some kind, physical-emotional-mental-spiritual injury, due to failure to maintain adequate upkeep of the overall system of wellbeing for the individual. "Therapy" also can fall into regulatory business zones, becoming ways people depend upon for making a living; and also take on some measure of responsibility for what they do for others, it is not always a "what you see is what you get" or "let the buyer beware" type of activity, although usually is in the market, in reality... the shopper knows best what he/she wants, not the marketer.

Thoughts about the Clark-type "Zapper", human wellbeing, and the business system:

My explorations with the Zapper (and some other related technologies) have taught me much about the wellness possibilities of our free nation. And yet, it has also taught me something about business principles that my rather naive (Asperger's) way of being did not previously comprehend: our general health system is not so much based on the optimization of people's wellbeing, but rather is there to utilize the human need for getting well when sick or otherwise injured, so as to provide the energy to drive business opportunities. These business opportunities are not based on filling every need, but rather on taking the business paths that make the most money for the investor, when there are multiple possible paths. Corporate management is required to take the path that makes the most money for the investors, to maintain corporate income to make the payroll, etc. The products that would make less money for the businesses thus get left out, and are thus unavailable generally to the consumer. It is like the old saying that "the buyers and sellers are all out doing much fine activity, but nobody is minding the store." The Big Picture gets lost somewhere. And sometimes things that people really need thusly do not get put into the economic system for the consumer's availability for use. Some of Clark's discoveries fall into this category, I believe. On the positive side, however, there are some huge new fields available for helping people, if and when the extremely powerful business system does not continue to block them.

The HRC-type Zapper may be a key tool providing the overall wellness that enables mankind to reach for a great new future, from what I have found (but it does not solve all the problems, of course!) It suggests that there are fascinating new kinds of areas of potential improvements in one's wellbeing, many within reach of the individual experimenter even now.


Although deeply interested in alternative medicine and the empathic arts in general, I also have an extensive background in electronics engineering, and some in bioelectronics. When I was led to my first encounter with electronics as used in alternative healing modalities, I decided that this was a "natural" for me to do personal hobby research on the electronic gagetry recently developed for improving health, classed as "microcurrent devices." And I have also collected much info and dato on the ones that have presented themselves to me.

As one of my hobbies, I've dabbled in two types of alternative health electronic gagetry, one type that fits into the classical electronics theory and bioelectric system concetual base; the other type fitting into a more mysterious technological system functioning on the wholeness aspect of things.


Microcurrent devices, such as those designed by biophysicist Bob Beck, Ph.D, and cell physiologist Hulda R. Clark, PhD., appear to follow the classical laws of electronics and biology, as far as I can tell.


Hulda R. Clark, PhD.'s work used refinements of herbal remedies for ridding people of a wide range of illnesses, yet her diagnostic tool was called a "Synchrometer", a device which uses the wholeness-aspect of things (as far as I can tell yet.) Her books "A Cure for All Cancers" and "A Cure for All Diseases" describes in detail how to build and learn to use a Synchrometer. (I have built a Synchrometer; yet I struggle with mental blocks as to doing the series of lessons to learn its use; but there does seem to be a clearly-discernable signal change when the wholeness-field aspect is activated, in my opinion. More to be learned later, I hope.) This device uses the user as part of the measurement system much more so than does conventional electronic instrumentation, and so requires special training in its use. It is said to be an order of magnitude more sensitive than conventional analytical chemistry technology permits, as proveable by a simple technique she describes in the book.

In the more recent "Cure for All Diseases" book, Clark also describes how to explore a biofield resonance mechanism, to identify biological organisms by a characteristic range of ordinary sinusoidal waveform frequencies combined within her Synchrometer along with the wholeness-field of the subject organism. For example, she found molds and mycotoxins from about 80 to 300 KHz, bacteria and viruses at 300 to 420 KHz, protozoa and round/flat worms at 350 to 440 KHz, tapeworms at 415 to 500 KHz, an ant at 1.2 to 1.3 MHz, a chameleon at 1.4 to 6.4 MHz, a cat at 1.5 to 8 MHz, and a human at 1.6 to 9.2 MHz. She also found that then directly-stimulating said organism with excess ordinary electrical waveform frequencies of their characteristic resonance frequency, would permanently injure or kill them: useable as a pathogenic healing tool against micro organisms, also as a guideline for safety for human electromagnetic exposure. There is room for a tremendous amount of health research here.

During the course of her research into this biofield resonance mechanism, she fortuitiously discovered that if her waveforms were entirely offset so they were monopolarity, never reversing direction into a set of handholds, not only did the specific frequency-selected microorganism perish, but also did a broad spectrum of other pathogens at the same time. Along with her electronics engineer son's help, this was developed into what she calls a "zapper", a device which chops a 9 volt battery voltage at a rate of about 35 KHz, and is applied through a 1K limiting resistor to copper pipe handholds covered with a water-soaked paper towel layer, to prevent metals contamination. She indicates usage as a 7-minute application of this microcurrent for 3 times spaced 20 to 30 minutes apart, can be done daily; only contraindications mentioned are in pregnant women and pacemaker users, though only because of inadequate research done on them yet.


A comment on the use of square waves as applied to the human body (instead of single-frequency sine waves): The use of pulses in Hulda Clark's "zapper" microcurrent device inherently generates high frequency harmonics of the output pulse frequency, since pulses are made up of overlayed sinewaves of many harmonic frequencies, adding together so as to create the square pulse shapes, according to classical Fourier analysis theory. Such harmonics could reach into the danger zone for people in some circuit configurations, harmonics which exist at 1.6 MHz and above. However, her circuit design uses a pulse frequency of less than 40KHz, from a pulse output source of a 555-type integrated circuit, which has a limited bandwidth, minimizing harmonics above the 1.6 MHz range, so not thusly considered potentially dangerous. The duration-amplitude effects on the human being needs methodical research to determine severity of problems with these frequencies, if any.

The use of this "zapper" is part of a greater regimen of analysis, herbal and avoidance modalities, depending on what specific problems the person has. Her above-mentioned books describes a great many of these combinations in detail.

In my opinion, electromedicine is a field deserving of further urgent widespread creative research. Hulda R. Clark's "zapper" microcurrent 555-timer-based device especially deserves widespread intelligent research, being inherently inexpensive, safe, and easy to use.
