My Neighbor's Knee

A very good friend of mine.....told me something the other day.....wait. That's a song lyric. Hang on - oh yeah! OK.

A very good friend of mine, Tracy has had a knee issue for some time. According to her, she has suffered with a tightness in the joint, soreness and clicking in it off and on for years. On Sunday, she realized it was swollen and tight again - and it hurt. She wasn't sure what she had done to it - but it was bothering her.

Tracy often joins me for tea as we are neighbors, and one morning we got on to the topic of her knee.

I told her about this contraption that hubby had bought for me. It was called "The Zapper." It sounds intimidating! When it arrived in the mail, I looked at it and thought it would electrocute me! I was worried....

This is what arrived in the mail (almost - the casing looks a bit different). One can understand how my friends might think this was a bit odd - even from me.

Hubby informed me that we were trying this little gadget. Wait - I would be trying it. After all, we only had one and I was sick. Uh huh. Again - scared!!

I did a little reading on the subject of the zapper before I even allowed it near me. This is what I found: (http://www.methodsofhealing.com/Types_of_Healing/manual-body-zapper/)

A manual body zapper is an instrument that was designed well over a decade ago but has recently become more popular as a health benefit. The body zapper will kill harmful bacteria and viruses that occur in the body for a variety of reasons. Poor health, exposure to pets, foreign travel, alcohol consumption, use of prescription medication and an unhealthy diet can contribute to the presence of parasites including viruses and bacteria. The manual body zapper will reduce or eliminate such parasites so you can maintain a healthier body.

What does a Manual Body Zapper do?

In the most basic sense a body zapper kills parasites in the body. You may think that if you do not live in a third world country or live a relatively clean life that there is no need for such a device. But do not think of parasites as worms or bugs. They can be that but they can also include fungus, bacteria and viruses, something everybody is exposed to throughout their life.

The manual body zapper emits a low dose of electricity that eliminates these from the body. There are other treatments available for this but they involve the use of harmful chemicals or medications that can have adverse side effects. Conversely, the body zapper kills parasites safely without negative side effects.

How Does a Manual Body Zapper Work?

There are various products available on the market with a wide range of costs associated with them. However, a manual body zapper does not have to be expensive to be effective. A typical product is battery powered and emits a low current into the body. There are generally three recommended doses to be applied daily for a period of time. The first one is applied for approximately six minutes. Then you let your body rest for thirty and repeat the process. You again let the body rest for thirty minutes and repeat a final time.

The low current kills parasites in the body after regular use. Not only are the parasites killed but any damaged tissue heals faster with this process. You should remain hydrated throughout the day after treatment and you may feel a bit sluggish afterward but this will decrease in time.

How Often Should Treatment Occur?

Initially, you should start off with one treatment per day. This should continue for the first three days. The following six weeks, though, you should increase the sessions to two to three. After the first few weeks you will feel energized and your immune system will be stronger. After the six weeks, your body will have eliminated the parasites found in the body and regular maintenance can commence. After six weeks, it is only necessary to have a treatment one to two times per week.

A manual body zapper can assist with a wide variety of physical afflictions including headaches, premenstrual syndrome, body pain, toothaches, immune deficiencies, cold and flu and skin conditions. Serious illnesses such as cancer and fibromyalgia are also known to show improvement with the use of a body zapper. With regular use, you too can see improvement in overall health.

After reading this information (and many other articles like it), I used it for a month and saw amazing results!! So I suggested using the zapper to Tracy. If she wanted to try it - it was there. She didn't bite at first (and I understand why!) but one day when I suggested it again she took it home and has been using it for several days. Here's her update so far:

MSM capsules for the last 3 days: 6 per day, before that she was taking 3 capsules a day for 3 days.
What is MSM?? We've covered it here before, but a quick reminder from:  (http://www.healingdaily.com/conditions/MSM-for-joint-pain.htm)
MSM is an organic source of sulfur which is widely utilized by the body in the formation of connective tissue and in the antioxidant glutathione. Sulfur is essential to good health but is easily destroyed by modern food processing methods resulting in widespread deficiencies. It is structurally and functionally important to more than 150 compounds in the body including enzymes, hormones, antibodies and free radical scavengers.
MSM is a natural substance that gives relief from joint pain, inflammation and allergies. MSM has gained considerable recognition for its results in relieving arthritis. Two actors, James Coburn and Robert Culp have played an important role in educating the public through media broadcasting about the benefits of MSM and how it has changed their quality of life.

So - back to Tracy's zapping regimine....along with the MSM:
Day 1: Used the zapper on her knee for 45 minutes in the evening
Day 2: Used the zapper for 1 hour in the morning and 3 hours in the evening
Day 3: Using the zapper again this morning!

She is also pleased to report that although the swelling remains for now, the pain is diminished and she is hopeful! She says, "....but no honestly, I have zapped it 3 times so far. I never noticed anything the first time, but I did the second time and then last night after the long session I definitely felt better, and it still does this morning."

Great to hear, Tracy! Keep zappin' girl! Let us know how it goes!!
