III. FREQUENCY & Resonance - Technology PROVES KEY IS FREQUENCY RESONANCE!
"Frequency is a more important parameter than field strength for biological effect."
~ Robert Becker
All life is oscillating or in vibration. Light is a vibration, Seeing, hearing, touching, smelling and tasting is all vibration. Oscillations or vibrations are more technically called waves in science. These waves have four fundamental characteristics.
A wave is a generic term for a pattern that repeats itself over time -- sound waves, brain waves, ocean waves, light waves, magnetic waves, and voltage waves are all repeating patterns. One cycle of a wave is the portion of the wave that repeats.
Frequency is the rate at which a wave or vibration occurs that constitutes a wave, either in a material (as in sound waves), or in an electromagnetic field (as in radio waves and light), usually measured per second.
Simply defined, frequency is the rate at which something occurs or is repeated over a particular period of time or in a given sample.
If a signal repeats, it has a frequency. The frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz) named after the physicist Heinrich Hertz and equals the number of times the signal repeats itself in one second (the cycles per second). A repeating signal also has a period -- this is the amount of time it takes the signal to complete one cycle. Period and frequency are reciprocals of each other, so that 1/period equals the frequency and 1/frequency equals the period. So, for example, the sine wave in Figure 20 has a frequency of 3 Hz and a period of 1/3 second.
In PEMF science we using refer to the frequency only as the wavelengths of ELFs are so long.
Some 73 Octaves of Frequencies from low ELF to Gamma Rays.
Visible Light is only a Narrow Sliver in this Vast Spectrum!!
But it turns out to be the PEAK output of our Sun, showing how life adapts to Nature.
We know from medical science and Electroencephalograms (EEGs) that the brain operates from 0-50 Hz, which corresponds to low delta to high Beta brainwave frequencies. Further we saw in the studies of Adey and Bawin, and Sisken and Walker that our cells and tissues resonate to these same frequencies. Zimmerman and Seto's studies showed that the human body even EMITS or radiates these same frequencies which are detectable up to 16 feet away with a sensitive magnetic field detector called a SQUID magnetometer. And these are the same frequencies the earth provides via the Schumann resonance and the geomagnetic frequencies (and their higher harmonics).
***BIG IDEA FOR THIS SECTION: The key and Scientific Key to Safe and Effective PEMF Therapy is Frequency and Resonance (and coil diameter) NOT INTENSITY.
In physics, resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at specific frequencies.
Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system's resonant frequencies or resonance frequencies. At resonant frequencies, small periodic driving forces have the ability to produce large amplitude oscillations, due to the storage of vibrational energy.
Any physical object has frequencies at which they naturally vibrate, known as resonance frequencies. If you flick a crystal wine glass with your finger, you will hear a fairly clear tone as the glass vibrates, causing waves of air pressure to emanate out from it, which your ears and brain interpret as sound. The sound gradually gets quitter and dies out as the amplitude of the vibrations diminishes due to energy being carried away by the sound waves.
Resonance in circuits are used for both transmitting and receiving wireless communications such as television, cell phones and radio.
Frequency resonance can make a wine glass SING or SHATTER.
What makes it shatter is HIGH intensity (the amplitude of the vibration becomes too great).
Low frequency low intensity PEMF devices resonant with your cells to make them SING a song of health.
High intensity PEMF can have short term symptomatic benefits but at a long term can shatter your health.
Don't be fooled!!
When you use the right frequency, all you need is a little vibration to make your cells sing!
Frequency resonance is the KEY NOT INTENSITY!
detect extremely weak signals with particular frequency matching characteristics, even in
the presence strong static fields and other oscillating fields. This is used in the
telecommunication systems. It is also used for vital biological telecommunication in brainto-cell
and cell-to-cell communication that is necessary to maintain healthy homeostatic
Magnetic Resonance Stimulation uses a low energy pulsed magnetic field applied to the body with an applicator. When the frequencies match (or a sub-harmonic) the resulting resonance and enhanced Q-factor stimulate energy transfer.
Frequencies by themselves do nothing, we need frequencies that RESONATE or VIBRATE IN STEP with the frequencies that our cells, tissues , organs, brain and biology vibrate at.
Radio transmitter and receiver analogy - In the macroscopic world certain amount of intensity is needed, like if you want to tune your radio to a local radio station. But as long as you are in range, it is all about frequency resonance.
Consider how your radio plucks out one station of hundreds in the air. it is frequency.
And your signal will be just as strong as someone close to the tower! Again proving frequency resonance is what is needed most. Yes if you leave town you lose the signal, so intensity is important.
All the low intensity PEMF devices I have measure have MORE than enough intensity to go all the way through and a couple feet above and to the other side. That is, you are well within range to "receive the signal".
If you were not laying on the mat, but standing ten feet away that WOULD be analogous to leaving town and loosing reception to your favorite station. So you do have to lay on the mat and put the applicators on the spot. BUT, the intensity is more than enough, so frequency resonance will take over. Make sense? Resonance is needed for the transfer of energy and information and intensity is secondary (but important... but you just need a enough to "reach" you).
You know, we've known for some time you can send power over a distance. Nikola Tesla showed it a hundred years ago. NASA in 1975 demonstrated sending 30 kilowatts of power over several kilometers.
Inductive Coupling Magnetic Stimulation (ICMS).
Witricity - Magnetic Resonance!
Highly resonant power transfer
Swing - mechanical resonance…
Fitzgerald - Acoustic resonance
Radio - Electromagnetic resonance
Source and device recognizes it. Like an energetic handshake.
1) Change distance and orientation over remarkable distances
Its a size and distance phenomenon NOT POWER!!
Can power many things in field simultaneously
Can be different sizes
10cents kilowatt hour
$300 kilowatt for aa battery
CAN both GIVE A STEADY CURRENT (kinetic - flows)
AND RECHARGE BATTERIES (potential - battery)
PEMF devices that use pure copper coils and earth frequencies (like the iMRS 2000) transmit energy wirelessly via magnetic resonance JUST LIKE Witricity! Also in PEMF just like Witricity INTENSITY IS NOT THE MAIN THING, it is FREQUENCY. Technology is finally proving what I have been saying all along. MORE IS NOT BETTER. Frequency RESONANCE is the KEY!
The ONLY difference is that electronic devices are powered by HIGHER magnetic frequencies whereas the human body resonancts to LOWER frequencies so of COURSE you want lower frequency (and lower intensity PEMF).
ALSO like the new wireless energy PEMF mats ALSO increase the flow of energy/chi, blood, lymph, nerve conduction, etc.
AND recharge your cellular batteries TMP/ATP and overall stored energy in the biofield. (Jing)
Resonance - charging the battery (creating charge separation= stored energy)
Charge Separation (Potential Energy) - BATTERY
Current/Flows (Kinetic Energy doing work = current or moving energy)
Magnetic Resonance can charge the body on all levels/scales as we'll see through the course of this video.
PEMF and Resonance/Charge Separation - Key, Match Frequency in Mat WITH Frequencies in Body Tissues and Cells.
Since all of the tissues in the body, particularly the brain, have their own fundamental frequencies, outside frequencies applied to the body can cause or "tune" the body's frequencies to be synchronized with the externally applied frequencies.
So a low intensity PEMF signal can cause a BIG effect if PEMF energy resonants with the cells, tissues, brain or organism.
This works EXACTLY like the wireless energy transfer, in fact, PEMF IS WIRELESS ENERGY TRANSFER FOR THE HUMAN BODY.
Like the ripples in a pond cause a floating leaf to bob up and down, the magnetic waves gently rock, cleanse and soothe the tissue matrix. I get feedback all the time from people who often fall in to a deep sleep during sessions as a result of this gentle phenomenon - perhaps reminiscent of a mother gently rocking her baby!
It produces a rhythmic magnetic wave whose peak value is only 70µT. Although the peak magnetic field is very small, the key to its success is resonance and repetition!
For comparison, the magnetic field used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging is much higher: typically about 1T, or 1.5T, 3T, or even higher. The strength of the field used in Magnetic Resonance Stimulation is a few millionth of what is used in MRI, or approximately that of the earth's magnetic field.
As a sidenote entrainment is a practical application of frequency resonance that helps the brain and body to synchronize with PEMF signals that are say energizing in the morning (beta 15-30 Hz) or relaxing or sleep inducing at night (theta / delta 0-7 Hz). This resonance or entrainment can be very helpful to relax a stressed body or induce sleep in an insomniac (The brain operates over the entire spectrum of 0-50 Hz earth frequencies).Cellular Resonance
The Adey Window of Biological Frequencies (~ 0 - 35 Hz)
In Living Systems, extremely weak fields may have potent effects, while there is little or no response to strong fields. Cells and tissues are highly non-linear, non-equilibrium, cooperative and coherent systems capable of responding to very specific windows in terms of frequency and intensity.
So what are the IDEAL frequencies, intensities, phase and waveform the human body needs?
It turns out that years of research has shown the biological windows, or parameters the human body resonates to; are in the same range as what the earth gives us. That is we, ideally need magnetic field intensities in the range of the earth, frequencies in that range and also the right timing (phase) and waveform.
By comprehending and looking deep into Nature, we find the perfect elements the body needs. To better understand the type of PEMF the earth emits and our body responds to biologically, let's introduce the idea of a biological window.
At the level of tissues, the same 0-50 Hz frequency range has been shown to have the most positive benefits on the human body. The Table to the left lists frequencies in the 0-50 Hz that biomedical researchers are finding that are effective for jump starting healing in a variety of soft and hard tissues.
Schumann Resonance Frequencies - The "Heartbeat" of the Earth
Just as a tuning fork has resonant frequencies for sound, so the planet earth and the ionosphere surrounding it have resonance frequencies for electromagnetic radiation called the Schumann Resonances. Basically the ionosphere with the Earth's surface creates a spherical wave-guide that surrounds the earth. Low frequency electromagnetic waves bounce around this waveguide, which is how radio signals can be transmitted around the globe. The fundamental frequency of this spherical cavity of the earth is 7.83 hertz, which, like a tuning fork, is the earth's fundamental "note".
These frequencies are excited mainly by lightning strikes (5000 lightning strike every minute) in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface and the ionosphere, but can also be induced by solar flares. More than 7 million lightning strikes the earth each day, which “ring” the proverbial bell of the ionosphere that chimes to the note of 7.83 and higher harmonics or octaves (as we’ll see). This natural frequency pulsation is not a fixed number, but an average of global readings, though the primary fundamental frequency is usually close to 7.83 Hz. The Schumann Resonance actually fluctuates due to geographical location, lightning, solar flares, atmospheric ionization and daily cycles. And contrary to the New Age discussions, the fundamental Schumann Resonance is not rising, at least according to continuous monitoring from geological observatories around the world.
And just as a piano has varying octaves of "C", so too does Schumann frequencies have higher octaves or harmonics, the primary ones being in the 0-50 Hz range, which as we’ll see in the next section is the most important frequency range for or body, mind and cells . Note: the first harmonic of 7.83 is by far the strongest with each subsequent harmonic diminishing in intensity. For all practical purpose harmonics above the fifth are virtually non-detectable.
The Primary Harmonics of the Schumann Resonance
1st Harmonic 7.83 Hz
2nd Harmonic 14 Hz
3rd Harmonic 21 Hz
4th Harmonic 26 Hz
5th Harmonic 33 Hz
6th Harmonic 39 Hz
As a sidenote entrainment is a practical application of frequency resonance that helps the brain and body to synchronize with PEMF signals that are say energizing in the morning (beta 15-30 Hz) or relaxing or sleep inducing at night (theta / delta 0-7 Hz). This resonance or entrainment can be very helpful to relax a stressed body or induce sleep in an insomniac (The brain operates over the entire spectrum of 0-50 Hz earth frequencies).
So to summarize, PEMF is unique in energy medicine in the way it penetrates all the way through the body to your bone marrow and every cell and organelle.
PEMF actives as a whole body battery recharger by charging your cells, tissues, organs and whole body via magnetic resonance energy transfer.
Getting the Right Frequency for the Time of Day - PEMF and Circadian Rhythms
Not only do you need a PEMF therapy device to give you the right frequency range (0-30 Hz), but you also need a built in biorhythm clock to give you the RIGHT frequency for the time of day.
For example, in the morning, you probably want to be awake and alert so a Beta frequency (12-30 Hz) would be appropriate whereas before bedtime you will probably want to relax and prepare the body and mind for sleep with a theta-delta frequency between 0-7 Hz.
It's interesting to note that even the earth's frequencies slow down a bit on the dark side of the earth, whereas in daylight the frequencies are slightly higher.
So even though the body resonates to all frequencies in the 0-30 range, its ideal to use settings that are in alignment with the time of day and the wave patterns of the circadian rhythms of the mind and body.
