Obtaining the optimum setting for each individual is a “Trial and Error Approach to Wellness." There is no data or parameters at this time indicating the optimal settings.

Efficacy was observed by me some two months after activation of my spouse’s prosthesis. The time to efficacy will also vary from individual to individual. The initial settings for my spouse were:

Output Current (milliamperes) .50
Signal Frequency (Hertz) 30
Pulse Width (microseconds) 500
Signal On Time (seconds) 30
Signal Off Time (minutes) 5
Magnet Current (milliamperes) 0
Magnet On Time (seconds) 30
Magnet Pulse Width (microseconds) 130

At the initial activation which you read above she felt no side effects from the therapy. Since she was in a state of depression at that time and she insisted the researchers increase the amplitude because she wanted out of the depressive cycle as quickly as possible. The amplitude was increased to .75 mA at which point she hit the roof. The amplitude was reset to .50 mA and was kept at that setting for a period of time.

For your information you can follow our detailed diary of events presented on the website and in particular on the message forum under our personal history topic.

The link to the site is:

Based upon your writings it appears to me you’re off to a good start. As much as one would like to be depression free as quick as possible my experiences would dictate to allow several weeks between adjustments to the parameters to allow the body to tolerate an adapt to the changes. I would also share from experience that it is a good idea when making changes to wait about ½ hour in the doctor’s office to make certain one can tolerate the changes as the prosthesis cycles. There will be times when the side-effects will be noticeable but quite often the sensation abates as the body gets use to the settings. One’s own tolerances should be a guide line. We would then come back a couple months later to try increasing the settings. There were times we attempted increases but my spouse could not tolerate the increase. While increasing one setting we may have also had to lower other settings to eliminate side-effects. Many of these topics are covered in our diary.

Once again, good luck in your adventure and I certainly hope you are part of the percentage that will obtain efficacy long-term from this therapy option.
