Electrocute Pain Away
If you ever need an excuse to get out of D.I.Y. chores, print this out and leave it lying on the kitchen table…
One day, my friend Steve Cooper was drilling a hole in his living room so he could finally hang a picture that he’d bought about six months previously.
He made a note of the positions of all the sockets and light fittings, picked a spot away from all the wires, and got drilling.
Next thing he knew, there was an explosion of bright blue light, and he was thrown clear across the room. It turns out the electrics in his apartment were a right mess, with wires running all over the place.
Luckily, it propelled him away from the current, and his only injuries were minor burns to his hands.
But he swears something else happened to him that, at the time, seemed most unlikely…
Steve is one of my old school buddies. In fact, we used to play rugby together until he banged up his knee and had to give up. And ever since then, he’d been plagued by that injury. Nothing serious… just a stiffness and dull ache that never really went away.
But his near-death experience changed all that.
You see after the accident, his knee was as good as new. Every time we saw him over the next month or so he’d leap up out if his chair and do a little jig or run on the spot, then pat his knee and present it to us proudly. He was convinced it was all down to the electric shock he’d suffered.
He was like one of the ‘cured’ who leaps up at an evangelical service screaming “I CAN WALK I CAN WALK!”
Now, it’s not that I didn’t believe him. After all, why would he lie about that, when there are so many better lies he could have come up with… (“I’m sorry First Wife, I’d really love to go and visit your mum this weekend, but my knee’s playing up” is one I would have tried out).
But I thought Steve’s miraculous knee cure was probably down to the fact he’d landed awkwardly and had snapped something back into place rather than the electricity that zapped through his body.
But, of course, I was wrong.
Back in the 19th Century, Ellen White spoke of “the electric currents in the nervous system”, and electrical current was often used to treat a wide variety of ailments.
But over the years, this therapy gradually gave way to more man-made solutions. Electric shock treatments were either seen as cruel (and in some cases this was an accurate assessment), or as a crude, almost pagan way to treat illness.
Now, however, it’s making a comeback in the form of a far more sophisticated procedure called micro-current therapy, that helps the body heal itself.
Here’s what happens.
All of us are made of individual cells whose nuclei possess a positive electrical charge and a negative electrical charge in the surrounding membrane.
Without this current and energy, life would not exist. And when it’s interrupted, our cellular function deteriorates, causing pain as the cell is starved of proper oxygen and nutrients.
The trouble is, once the cell is damaged, its internal communications gets blown out, preventing it from calling for help. It’s a bit like a TV aerial or satellite dish getting blown down, and the signal not being able to reach your TV.
That’s where micro-current therapy can help. By using extremely small pulsating currents of electricity to treat traumatised areas of the body, it repairs the damaged internal communication system.
In effect, this lets the damaged area call 999 and get the body’s emergency services rushing over to help. In a very short space of time, this therapy can help your body overcome pain and relieve musculoskeletal discomfort.
As the blood flows more actively through the pain area, it uses more oxygen and promotes a faster, more natural healing. The magic of this therapy means it’s not only an exciting step forward in treating new injuries — like sports injuries or whiplash…
But it could also help relieve symptoms of terribly upsetting conditions like osteo-arthritis, by opening up these internal channels of communication and getting the body to heal itself.
At last this therapy seems to be getting the recognition it deserves – and I’m going to find the best way for you to harness this power!
As we’ve seen, micro-current therapy is not new. But up until now, it’s just been too expensive and too complex to make it available to everyone.
And drilling into walls is NOT the answer!
However, a number of home use, hand held machines are now available to bring microcurrent therapy direct to your home.
If you suffer from any form of chronic pain, or have any injuries that just won’t clear up… this could be the answer.
Leave it with me for a week or so, and I’ll let you know the very best way for you to try this exciting, but not-quite-new, form of therapy.
That’s all from me today. I’ll let you get back to your day.
And if you’re doing D.I.Y, by careful!
