|WHAT IT DOES |
This wonderfully simple device is used to apply a controlled amount of direct electric current (.5 to 3mA) to the body where a herpes simplex lesion is starting to develop in order to disable the viruses ability to infect the cells there. It is for use with Herpes Simplex 1 (oral) and Herpes Simplex 2 (genital). The proof of the effectiveness of this therapy is from a medical patent outlined in the book "A Case For Electro-Therapy" which lists the clinical studies of this herpes simplex treatment with electric current.
HOW IT WORKS
This electro-therapy stops herpes in its tracks by diligent application within 12-18 hours of noticing the first symptoms of a herpes flare up. As with other electromedicine therapies against viruses, the current stops the viruses from being able to attack and infect healthy human cells such as skin cells.
WHAT IT IS
The device is a small plastic box with two cloth electrodes at the end of the output wires. The electrodes need to have tap water applied to them before usage in order to make them electrically conductive. The amount of electric current is controllable by turning the control knob. A red light emitting diode turns on when there is current flowing out from the unit and into the patient.
HOW TO USE IT
The amount of current applied should allow you to be able to feel a tingling sensation from the electric current when applied to your skin or lips. Wet the cloth electrodes, connect them to the alligator clips at the end of the output wires, and press them onto the herpes sores with the electrodes at least 1+1/2" apart. Turn the control dial fully counter-clockwise and then switch the unit on and turn the control knob so that the current is somewhat uncomfortable but not painful. Apply the current for 15 seconds every hour for 8 hours or until symptoms subside.
ps- it also works great on cysts on eyelids since they are also caused by viruses.
