Is it necessary to use all three units of the Beck Protocol?

No. You can use one or all of the Beck units. Keep in mind, the three units support and complement each other; this was how Bob planned it. For example, micropulsing with the blood electrifier, since it cleans the blood that circulates throughout the body, has the most overall effect. Bob realized there was a need for something to address more specific areas like the lymph and other harder-to-reach places, so he invented the magnetic pulser. He then recognized the need to flush out the toxins released by micropulsing and magnetic pulsing - and came up with a unit that ozonated drinking water. All three units work hand-in-hand in supporting the body to heal itself.

The Beck units also function independently, so if budget dictates or you're inclined to start with one unit, we recommend the blood electrifier/micropulsing unit. Most people start with this unit and add in other units as they can.

Whether you start with one, two, or three units - the point is you are starting. You're moving forward and taking your power back. Even more, you're giving your body the tools it needs to heal and attain the state of health you're meant to have.

Do the micropulsing unit and the magnetic pulse generator have the same purpose?

You're absolutely right, they do have the same purpose - they both generate microcurrents - but in different ways. When you're micropulsing, the microcurrents of electricity are cleansing the blood as it circulates past the electrodes. Gradually, all the blood coursing through your veins and arteries will have passed the electrodes on your wrist allowing you to receive the benefits of micropulsing. But what about areas that aren't exposed to blood through micropulsing?

The magnetic pulser generator takes care of this. Using the hand paddle, you can target specific areas, like bones or joints; lymph nodes; even spinal fluid. Between the two units, you're covered.

Is the micropulsing unit more important than using the magnetic pulse generator?

The micropulsing unit is the heart of the Bob Beck Protocol as cleansing the blood is a building block to setting up your body for healing. Each unit serves an important purpose, but if you are not planning to use the full Protocol, micropulsing is a great place to start. However, if the problem is a specific area of the body, the magnetic pulser may be a better first option.

What diseases does the Beck Protocol cure?

Actually, your body is curing and healing itself. The Beck units are tools that assist and enable that healing to move forward.

The best source for specific examples is to hear from fellow readers who have reached out and shared their personal stories and experiences. These stories are sincere, funny, dramatic, inspiring...and very, truly human. To make it easier, we've set up the Testimonials page so you can search by unit or by the name of the issue you're interested in.

Can children or pets use the Beck units?

Children and pets can use the Beck units. Even though they are younger and smaller, their bodies are still electrically-based just as an adult human is, and they can experience benefit, too. Keep in mind the instructions were originally developed for adults and may need to be adjusted for the smaller body of a child or pet. You may also want to review our Testimonials for stories from our readers about their experiences using the Beck units with children and pets.

Something to keep in mind, is that a child's immune system in the early years is learning and growing and so it is important for a child to be exposed to things in order to allow the immune system to build and become strong, something that we benefit from for the rest of our lives. However, it is equally important to understand that the time we are living in is unprecedented in terms of the number of chemicals we are exposed to, as well as viruses that are becoming more and more virulent - this combination is a huge hit to our immune systems. On the one hand, needing to allow a child's immune system to gain experience and on the other hand needing to make a call as to whether something they are experiencing is powerful enough that the immune system is struggling is a decision only a parent can make.

Can I use all the Beck units at the same time?

Yes! It's really a matter of what you decide you prefer, what's most effective for you, and what works for your schedule. As examples, some people like using micropulsing/blood electrification and pulsed magnetic fields simultaneously - they feel it's a much more efficient use of time. Others prefer micropulsing during the day and magnetic pulsing in the evening.

Our best advice - experiment to see what works for you and make adjustments as you go. Ultimately, the best choice for you is whatever works for you so that you can use the units regularly.

Please remember to drink lots of water (ozonated water is a great idea before and after micropulsing and magnetic pulsing!) to flush those toxins out of the body.

If you haven't already, be sure to see the Guide to Using the Beck Protocol.

Can I use the Beck Protocol with other protocols?

Our experience is the Beck Protocol seems to work well in combination with other natural protocols such as healthy nutritional changes, supplements, herbs, etc. Something to keep in mind - if beginning several new things simultaneously, it may be hard to determine what's working just right or what needs adjusting. Every new protocol - even something as seemingly gentle as changing one's diet - has the potential for triggering detoxification. The main thing - as always - educate yourself and continue to be observant so you can feel confident about the path you are taking.

How can the Beck Protocol be beneficial? I've heard electricity can be harmful.

Exposure to - for example - high voltage transformers and power lines that deliver electricity to our homes can have harmful effects because it is very intense and disruptive to the body. On the other hand, the Beck Protocol gives us electricity in the microcurrent range. This is very gentle and bio-compatible to the body. For example, Bob reported the output of the micropulsing unit was in the same range as a heart pacemaker. The Beck units are designed to work with the body's natural electricity to allow the body to heal itself.

What is the difference between "dirty" electricity and "therapeutic" electricity?

"Dirty" electricity refers to high voltage power lines, transformers, microwaves, and some radio waves. Dirty electricity sources are disruptive by nature and can have cumulative, harmful effects on the body.

"Therapeutic" electricity, on the other hand, is safe to use because our bodies are primarily electrical in nature. Therapeutic applications encompass biocompatible electricity that we can live with in harmony. The Beck units use biocompatible frequencies.

Digging Deeper: Check the work by Dr. Magda Havas, a Canadian expert in the field who is respected internationally. Many of her presentations on the effects of dirty electricity and the benefits of biocompatible electricity can be found on YouTube.

Can everyone use therapeutic electricity?

The majority of people experience benefits from the use of therapeutic electricity.

In rare cases, some individuals who are electrically sensitive, may react to electrical and/or magnetic energies. Generally, these people are already aware of their sensitivities as they react to many types of electrical apparatus.

I am electrically sensitive. Can I use the Beck Protocol?

You will probably be just fine using colloidal silver and ozonated water - as long as you are able to be around items like kitchen appliances. The micropulsing and magnetic pulsing may be too much for you depending on how electrically sensitive you are.

If you do want to try them, we suggest starting out slowly with one unit, being patient and observing how your body responds step-by-step.

Any suggestions on what to do if having a detox reaction [Herxheimer effect]?

Some people – although not all – experience a detox reaction when doing the Beck Protocol. It makes sense … from your body’s point of view it is having the opportunity to get the healing process moving forward. As you use the Beck units, the body begins 'cleaning house', so to speak, and if the body is getting rid of toxins faster than it can eliminate them &/or if they are highly toxic, reactions can occur.

A detox reaction can be similar to a heavy-duty case of the flu – where your body is doing everything possible (fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, muscle/body aches, etc.) to deal with the toxins and remove them. Alternatively if the body is trying to use the skin to get rid of the toxins – rashes are common. There is a wide range of experiences people can have as the body is healing itself. Not a pretty picture, for sure, but it does pass.

But there are things you can do to help. First, when you begin using the Beck units, start out slow and easy, then increase use over time, day by day. This gives your body a chance to adjust and find balance rather than having to deal with a huge movement of toxins all at once, which might be triggered by using the units 'full speed' from the start.

Another strategy for when experiencing detox is to adjust your usage plan and back off a bit to give your body a break. Stop for a couple of days or reduce the amount of time you are using the unit(s) in a day. Once you’re feeling better again, resume use (slow and easy).

In addition remember your water intake (especially ozonated water!). Bob developed the Water Ozonator as a means to help hydrate the body and flush the body of toxins. Ozone water supports the oxidative system in the body, which is the system that burns up toxins.

Above all, remember that you are in control of creating a Protocol that works for you. The perfect protocol is the one that works with your body. Bob understood that each of us is unique and therefore our strategy to achieve optimum health is also unique. Use this to your advantage and work with your body to custom-design a plan to achieve your goals.
