Hummers vs Ringers

5361072_sWould you like to know the dif­fer­ence between a hum­mer and a ringer?

I’ve been asked to explain this dif­fer­ence many times because it’s the main dif­fer­ence between PEMF Devices like Mag­na­Pulse and res­o­nant devices like MRS and Cur**t*on®.   Here is an expla­na­tion — of my opin­ion of the dif­fer­ences.

Most peo­ple who start research­ing become con­fused for three rea­sons:

  • The ortho­dox sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty has prac­ticed sus­tained prej­u­dice relat­ing to ener­gy ther­a­py;
  • Pro­po­nents are biased and tend to mis­rep­re­sent per­for­mance;
  • Top­ic is com­plex — and dif­fer­ent tech­nolo­gies are described with the sim­i­lar­ly — lead­ing to con­fu­sion.

In spite of these fac­tors, a large and grow­ing pop­u­la­tion of indi­vid­u­als with pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence to the a tip­ping point and gen­er­al­ly rec­og­nize that ener­getic devices have affect­ed their health enough for them to buy one.

It’s impor­tant to rec­og­nize that there are two dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of Elec­tro­mag­net­ic Ther­a­py Devices:

So the first thing we’ll do is help you fig­ure out what kind of device you’re study­ing.   It’s the dif­fer­ence between hum­mers ver­sus ringers…

About Hummers


A sine wave, square wave, tri­an­gle wave and saw­tooth wave used by res­o­nant devices. They are not pulsed devices because there is no “burst” — they uti­lize a repeat­ing or har­mon­ic sig­nal.

Res­o­nant devices are most eas­i­ly explained with a pic­ture.  These are wave­forms like those pro­duced by dif­fer­ent res­o­nant devices. The amount of time it takes for one com­plete wave­form is called the peri­od, and the num­ber of cycles per sec­ond is called the fre­quen­cy.

The shapes of the waves reflect the wave­form.

Some­times these devices will “sweep” which is to go from one fre­quen­cy to anoth­er — but they always out­put a repeat­ing sig­nal.

The char­ac­ter­is­tics that char­ac­ter­ize res­o­nant devices around a par­tic­u­lar fre­quen­cy.

Res­o­nant device man­u­fac­tur­ers that the word  “pulse”, as in pulsed elec­tro­mag­net­ic device,  mis­lead their read­ers — because a “Pulse” is a very dif­fer­ent wave­form than any of these reg­u­lar repeat­ing wave­forms.

Pulsed devices uti­lize the con­cept of fre­quen­cy because they tune to a spe­cif­ic fre­quen­cy to acti­vate one or more ener­getic struc­tures by “singing” a fre­quen­cy.  This can be very ben­e­fi­cial.  Roy­al Ray­mond Rife used fre­quen­cy exten­sive­ly to tar­get micro­scop­ic dimen­sions of organ­isms to explode them.

Let’s talk about true puls­es now — or Ringers.


A Pulse is a dis­crete event, like a blast — trig­gered from a sud­den release of ener­gy.

Here is what a pulsed wave­form tends to look like.  Note that this is a sin­gle event.  The ups-and-downs are echoes that hap­pen when ener­gy bounces around the anten­na before it leaves.

Pulse events tend to make items res­onate at their own fre­quen­cy.  Think about ring­ing a bell — you hit the bell and it rings.  The hit is the pulse, and the ring­ing that hap­pens — is at the fre­quen­cy defined by the bell.  So if you graph a ring — there’s the hit — and then the ring.   The fre­quen­cy of the ring comes from the enti­ty that received the ener­gy.

Pulsed Mag­net­ic Devices — make cells ring at their own fre­quen­cy.  Cells are like bells.

Hum­mers and ringers have dif­fer­ent effects.   Now that we’ve got that straight­ened out — lets talk about elec­tri­cal…

Electromagnetic Devices

Mag­net­ic devices are either hum­mers or ringers.  Here are a few clues to help you sort them into dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories.

To help with this sort­ing, we’re going to cre­ate some fil­ter ques­tions for Pulsed Devices:

  • Does it run on a spark or high volt­age gen­er­a­tor?
  • Does it have a pow­er­ful pulse — mea­sured in 1000+ Gauss?
  • Does it make a noise when it trig­gers?
  • Can you feel it?
  • A true Pulsed Elec­tro­mag­net­ic Device will usu­al­ly answer yes to all these.

That said, we do care about the oth­er devices because we feel it’s impor­tant for our audi­ence to under­stand why the dif­fer­ences may be impor­tant to them.

To fig­ure out if it is a Res­o­nant Device:

  • Does it have declare square or saw­tooth wave?
  • Is the device focused on deliv­er­ing a “fre­quen­cy”?
  • Is the pow­er described as Gauss <300 ?
  • Can you feel it?
  • If you answered yes to these ques­tions then it’s prob­a­bly a Res­o­nant Device that pro­duces a wave­form instead of a pulse.

Okay — so the real ques­tions is what are they good for…

There are two dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of devices, and they are as dif­fer­ent as cats and dogs, but both are ani­mals because both use an elec­tro-mag­net­ic field to trig­ger phys­i­o­log­i­cal effects.

Like ani­mals, the char­ac­ter­is­tic of the field defines the effect.  Res­o­nant and Plas­ma Dis­charge fields are very dif­fer­ent in char­ac­ter, and there­fore effect.  As dogs are poor at catch­ing mice, cats are poor at keep­ing fox­es out of the chick­en house.  The per­for­mance and cost of each device suits dif­fer­ent needs.

Tech­ni­cal­ly speak­ing:

Hummers vs Ringers

Issue Com­ment Pulsed Device Res­o­nant Device
Sig­nal Source Nat­ur­al ver­sus com­put­er. Plas­ma effects are sig­nif­i­cant at an nuclear lev­el (Pap­pas) High Volt­age Spark Com­put­er Gen­er­at­ed repeat­ing Pat­tern
Fre­quen­cy Sim­i­lar but puls­es ver­sus repeat­ing wave­form. 1–100 pulse per sec­ond Set by con­trol
Wave­form TSSD is much short­er and cre­ates much stronger mag­net­ic effects. Induces elec­tro­po­ra­tion. 1–100 nanosec­ond burst pulse (see vec­tor plot)  Res­o­nant wave­form
Peak Field Inten­si­ty  TSS­Ds cre­ate much stronger fields which the user feels — often strong­ly. 20,000+ Gauss Around 1–500 Gauss depend­ing on the device
Har­mon­ic Spec­trum  TSS­Ds have a much stronger and high­er har­mon­ic fre­quen­cies. See Eigen Mod­u­la­tion. Strong High Fre­quen­cy Much low­er high fre­quen­cy inten­si­ty from switched low pow­er con­trols instead of “plas­ma”.
Eigen Mod­u­la­tion — See US 5,556,418 Pap­pas Pap­pas patents indi­cate that plas­ma to gas tran­si­tion encodes Pulse wave­form with nuclear infor­ma­tion that acti­vates atoms. Nuclear acti­va­tion of Oxy­gen, Car­bon, Nitro­gen by eigen mod­u­lat­ed wave­form. No
Induces elec­tro­po­ra­tion TSS­Ds are pow­er­ful enough to cause Elec­tro­po­ra­tion which ele­vates cel­lu­lar exchange to a very high lev­el. Yes. See Detox & Phar­ma­co­ki­net­ic effects. No
Enhances Phar­ma­co­ki­net­ics TSS­Ds increase cel­lu­lar deliv­ery of nutri­ents and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals. Yes. Increas­es uptake of ther­a­peu­tic agents, Vit­a­min C, anti-path­o­gen­ic agent, to local­ized areas dur­ing elec­tro­po­ra­tion. No Known effect.
Detox Man­age­ment TSS­Ds are much more potent. Ele­vat­ed res­pi­ra­tion shifts cell tox­ins more and is more like­ly to cause detox chal­lenge. Yes. Pro­longed expo­sure caus­es very ele­vat­ed cel­lu­lar exchange which can flood exit paths result­ing in Herx­heimers reac­tion Uncom­mon. Excess expo­sure does not tend to cause detox chal­lenge.
Cost TSS­Ds cost more. They usu­al­ly cost between 3–5x of har­mon­ic devices. High volt­age com­po­nents are expen­sive. Micro­proces­sors and low pow­er ampli­fiers are inex­pen­sive.
Typ­i­cal Response Char­ac­ter­is­tics There is some over­lap, but the sever­i­ty of the con­di­tion should guide usage. Repair — pro­vides stronger and more imme­di­ate health effect. Exhibits direct anti-pathogen effect for some bac­te­r­i­al strains Main­te­nance — Tunes and stim­u­lates cel­lu­lar per­for­mance by fre­quen­cy.
Anti Par­a­sitic Puls­es tend to dis­rupt pathogens. Very com­mon to see tapeworm/etc exit after treat­ment of abdom­i­nal region. No Com­pa­ra­ble Effect
Anti Path­o­gen­ic — phar­ma­co­ki­net­ic Puls­es improve antibi­ot­ic effi­ca­cy for antibi­ot­ic resis­tant organ­isms.Image of VRE infec­tion after treat­ment TSSD, and antibi­otics report­ed inef­fec­tive by CDC inves­ti­ga­tors onsite. 37% Mor­bid­i­ty Study Typ­i­cal to observe exit port and pus drainage after treat­ment of MRSA affect­ed areas. & res­o­lu­tion with con­firmed MRSA infec­tion — espe­cial­ly when used to improve antibi­ot­ic uptake.Identical response to VRE using

So, in our opin­ion, both are valu­able.  Res­o­nant devices tend to fit health-main­te­nance require­ments, while Plas­ma Dis­charge Devices tend to be bet­ter suit­ed to health repair appli­ca­tions.

This forum specif­i­cal­ly address­es to pulse dis­charge devices or Plas­ma Dis­charge Device, which are dif­fer­ent from  res­o­nance devices which uti­lize var­i­ous wave­forms.

The basic ques­tion boils down to “Which is bet­ter?” Well that’s an unfair ques­tion and it depends on the prob­lem the device is being used to solve. Here are some guide­lines:

Appli­ca­tion Plas­ma Dis­charge Device Res­o­nant Device
Health Main­te­nance Overkill Appro­pri­ate
Anti-Aging Use­ful @ start of chron­ic issues Very Good
Injury Very Appro­pri­ate Help­ful
Dan­ger­ous Infec­tion Essen­tial no doc­u­ment­ed effect
