Gentle Electricity Heals

Micropulsing is zapping the blood with electricity. The electricity used is a very gentle form, known as microcurrents. Microcurrents have been used in medical devices like pacemakers, TENS devices and others for many decades. Microcurrents of electricity are considered safe.

Micropulsing, the application we are going to discuss, involves applying gentle microcurrents to the blood. These microcurrents are created using a unit powered by a small battery. The microcurrents are introduced to the body by placing two small electrodes on the wrist. There are two arteries in each arm that come close to the surface at the wrists. The electrodes are targeting these two arteries.

In 1990 a remarkable discovery was made.

Two medical doctors, Stephen Kaali and William Lyman, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, discovered that applying microcurrents to cultured white blood cells infected with viruses disabled the viruses without affecting normal healthy cells. In 1991, the potential of this research discovery was announced in Science News magazine:

Zapping the AIDS virus with low–voltage electric current can nearly eliminate its ability to infect human white blood cells cultured in the laboratory, ....

William D. Lyman and his colleagues found that exposure to 50 to 100 microamperes of electricity—comparable to that produced by a cardiac pacemaker—reduced the infectivity of the AIDS virus (HIV) by 50 to 95 percent. Their experiments ... showed that the shocked viruses lost the ability to make an enzyme crucial to their reproduction, and could no longer cause the white cells to clump together—two key signs of virus infection.

The finding could lead to tests of implantable electrical devices or dialysis–like blood treatments in HIV–infected patients, Lyman says. In addition, he suggests that blood banks might use electricity to zap HIV, and vaccine developers might use electrically incapacitated viruses as the basis for an AIDS vaccine.1[Editor’s Note: Emphasis is ours.]

The following year, after interviewing Dr. Steven Kaali, Longevity magazine added:

... most of the AIDS viruses in a blood sample will lose their infectious capability after being zapped by a very low–level current. Repeated exposure appears to leave blood virtually free of HIV, as well as hepatitis—without harming blood cells.2

It is important to note that the research in the lab at Albert Einstein College of Medicine was based on taking the blood out of the body to expose it to microcurrents and was conducted in a laboratory setting.3

So, what happened as a result of this ground-breaking research? What happened since 1990 to improve health and save lives all over the world? Nothing. The patent filed based on this research was sold, and nothing more happened.

Modern medicine has ignored this astounding discovery.

Robert C. Beck D.Sc., a retired physicist, had been developing sensitive instrumentation and exploring electromedicine for most of his career. In 1991, when he learned of the research by Kaali and Lyman he was immediately inspired:

“It occurred to me in a flash of light, why take the blood out of the body. Why not leave it in there where it belongs.”4

Micropulsing was born.

Based on all the research Bob Beck was already aware of, he felt this discovery would have far wider applications than any one disease. He wondered if this was a way our Creator had left a back-door to help our bodies heal—using electricity. It would take only a few years to show that electricity does indeed have far wider applications for healing.

Bob Beck believed the public had a right to choose to use safe, simple technology. Bob’s design for passing microcurrents through blood brought the use of gentle electricity for healing directly to the public. His design allowed micropulsing to be easily used at home, the office or outdoors.

Bob affectionately called applying microcurrents to blood, “blood electrification.” He also described his unit as a “blood purifier” or as a “blood cleaner.”

Bob Beck’s inspiration, to apply gentle electricity to the blood in an easy-to-use way, worked—it boosted the body’s ability to heal itself.

How to Use the Bob Beck Unit

  • The micropulsing unit to apply microcurrents for blood electrification is simple to use—two electrodes are placed on the skin over the arteries on each side of the wrist. One electrode is placed over the Radial artery on the thumb side of the wrist, and the other electrode is placed over the Ulnar artery, on the little finger side of the wrist. The blood comes closer to the surface of the skin at these pulse points.

    The basic protocol suggests building up the time from as little as 10 minutes a day to a minimum of two hours or more per day. Micropulsing may speed up the normal body cleansing process, referred to as detoxification or detoxing. Starting slowly helps avoid any flu-like or other detox symptoms. Building up to a minimum of two hours a day is suggested in order to expose enough of the circulating blood to the microcurrents being applied to the wrist. Bob stressed the importance of drinking plenty of water when micropulsing, to help eliminate toxins.

    Once started, micropulsing should be applied for a minimum of six weeks. For more serious challenges and for details on a maintenance program, we’ve created a handy reference guide.

The Electrical Nature of the Body

It turns out the electrical nature of the body has long been studied by researchers.

Electrically speaking, Dr. Harold Saxton Burr PhD, discovered that sick body cells such as cancer cells, have a different voltage than normal healthy cells.5 Is it possible that micropulsing helps restore normal voltage to unhealthy cells?

We also know the body has an awesome ability to heal itself when the immune system is working well. Research done in Switzerland and reported in Science & Vie, has shown that white blood cells, a key part of the blood’s immune system, function electrically.6 Our white blood cells electrocute disease-causing pathogens in the blood.

Microcurrents for Healing

Given the evidence for the electrical nature of our bodies and the healing process, it is not so surprising that adding a mild flow of electricity to the blood, by simply placing electrodes over the two main arteries on the wrist, would boost the body’s ability to heal itself.

The Beck Protocol Is Born

Currently, the effectiveness of micropulsing has not gained mainstream medical attention. However, its popularity continues to grow among those looking for more natural ways to health. Today, individuals share their testimonials with others, and with us, about how they have restored their health. The use of the Beck units now spans the globe.

As Bob gained experience with and received feedback from individuals using micropulsing, he saw the need for three additional steps to help the body to heal.

All four steps are designed to work
together for greater effectiveness. Each part
of the Beck Protocol is a powerful tool for health
on its own… feel free to use each individually.

Shortly after, on March 30, 1991, Dr. Lyman was interviewed on the CBC, a Canadian radio network program called “Quirks & Quarks,” about their breakthrough discovery. Dr. Lyman suggested it would take some years to bring the technology into practical use.
