    SPINAL CORD REGROWTH AND REPAIR 1/10/11

    A Proposal Outline for Repair and Re-growth of Severely Damaged Spinal Cords
    Based on the Research Work of Robert O. Becker, M.D. and His Research Team
    By physicist Gary Wade

    In his book THE BODY ELECTRIC, Robert O. Becker, M.D. lays out the key experimental facts that, when considered all together, strongly suggest that a spinal cord surgical procedure can be performed to repair and re-grow severely damaged spinal cords. That is, repair of injuries of long standing, as of many years. The book THE BODY ELECTRIC was published in 1985, some twenty five years ago. Since that time no significant progress along the lines that Becker laid out in his book for spinal cord repair have occurred. However, during this twenty five years tremendous advances in the understanding of genetics and stem cell research have occurred, which now can be used by neurosurgeons in spinal cord repair. What will be attempted here is the condensing of Becker?s work to bring neurosurgeons who are not familiar with Becker?s work up to speed on it. The hope and belief is that they will see the clear opportunity to end the stagnation in surgical progress in spinal cord repair. These neurosurgeons can give the lives back to millions of people on this planet who are in misery, along with their families and friends waiting for institutions and government agencies such as the FDA to get their act together to attempt to implement Becker?s work into a cure of spinal cord paralysis. The time has come for the breakthrough. There is absolutely no legitimate reason for this current state of stagnation in surgical progress in spinal cord repair. This proposal outline will hopefully demonstrate to neurosurgeons that the time is now for the breakthrough and that they will come together and rally their institutions into decisive action for the cure of spinal cord damage/paralysis.

    What Becker and his team experimentally demonstrated was that mammals (humans) can re-grow all manner of body tissue as long as an appropriate value of negative electrical current, in the form of hydroxyl ions, is generated and maintained directly behind the injury/amputation site. If this appropriate current is maintained, then a cellular matrix called a blastema will form at the amputation/surgical site that will continually grow outward leaving in its wake all of the formally missing tissue, in perfect anatomical detail, until all of that tissue is replaced.
    (For easy reference, attached to this proposal outline are all of the pages of Becker?s book, which are referred to in this proposal outline.)

    Pertinent Experimental and Observational Facts about Salamanders and Mammals (humans)


    1. After amputation and or selective surgical removal salamanders can re-grow all of their limbs and much of their body parts; i.e. re-growth of half a heart in less than 12 hours (see pages 197 to 200 of THE BODY ELECTRIC (TBE) ), re-grow an eye lens ( see pages 190 to 191 of TBE), re-grow the front half of the brain (see pages 213 to 214 of TBE ), and re-grow and reconnect a surgically removed piece of spinal cord (see pages 207 to 211 of TBE). See also Reference 1, pages 26 and 28.



    1. The ratio of the weight of nerve tissue to the weight of other tissue in the bodies of salamanders as compared to that same ratio in mammals is around 4 or 5 times bigger (see page 151 of TBE). This means that salamanders can produce approximately 4 to 5 times more negative current of injury(hydroxyl ions) to the amputation site per volume of tissue than a mammal can. This negative current of injury is delivered to the injury region by the collagen fibers of the Schwann cells coating nerve cell axons (see Reference 1, pages 22 to 25 ). The triple stranded protein of collagen is an N-type semi-conductor of electricity (see Page 113 of TBE ).




    1. If a small negative current (hydroxyl ions); (see Reference 1, pages 27 to 30) supply of the appropriate magnitude is surgically placed directly behind the fresh amputation site on a rat (mammal) leg, the leg will begin and continue to re-grow back until the negative current of injury supply becomes too small at that re-growth location (see pages 152 to 155 of TBE ).


    Key Assumptions and Apparent Experimental Observations of Conditions Needed to Re-grow a Section of Spinal Cord


    1. The mammal (human) has essentially the same regeneration ability as the salamander, as long as the normal current of injury at the injury site on a mammal is increased by approximately a factor of 4 or 5 above that normally observed value from that injury site.



    1. An internal body part or section of tissue in a mammal (human) can be re-grown, after surgical removal, as long as the negative current of injury is maintained large enough (4 or 5 times normal). For example (see pages 187 to 189 of TBE ) where a section of surgically removed cartilage in the end surface of a white rabbit femur was regrow with an artificially enhanced negative current of injury supplied to only the damaged tissue area/region. This is what will be done for the damaged spinal cord.




    1. The positive electrical potential of spinal shock that will occur from spinal surgery must/will be suppressed and removed by the artificially produced negative current of injury supplied by the implanted platinum electrode into the spinal cord (see pages 73 and 210 of TBE).


    The Proposed Experimental Procedure to Re-grow Spinal Cord Tissue and Thereby Repair Spinal Cord Damage

    Figure 1 shows the whole spinal vertebrate column and two side views of two different sections of a human spinal column. It is the spinal cord tissue between adjacent spinal vertebrate that are protected by the spinous processes of the vertebra that usually suffers the crush damage in paralyzing traumatic injuries; i.e. car crashes. That section of spinal cord tissue is generally destroyed and replaced by cyst formation and/or an amorphous jumble of astrocyte cells often referred to as neural scar tissue.

    The goal and purpose of the proposed spinal cord operation is to remove cysts and the neural scar tissue and to remove/rough up (controlled damage) both the top and bottom ends of the spinal cord on each side of the scar tissue. This surgical removal/abrasion damage is done to instigate the current of injury and associated processes, blastema formation, that will be ready to go and start spinal cord re-growth as soon as an adequate current of injury is present. Getting FDA approval to use DMSO to suppress associated inflammation damage would be great (see Reference 2, pages 169 to 171). The normal spinal shock positive electrical potential that will come with this surgical procedure will be suppressed by the implanted pure platinum plated electrode(s), which supply the needed extra negative current of injury, since the normal current of injury in mammals is too small to cause re-growth unless it is boosted by a factor of around 4 or 5. A platinum needle electrode which supplies the needed extra negative current of injury (hydroxyl ions) is implanted in the upper section of spinal cord and the lower spinal cord end as well (see Figure 2 ). The physical electric circuit which supplies the needed extra current of injury is shown in Figure 3. At this time I believe that one pure platinum plated electrode is adequate to do the job needed in most cases. However, there is no reason not to try using two platinum needle electrodes in each spinal cord end. The current supply will just be adjusted down for each electrode.

    One of the key questions to be answered is what value of carbon resistor should be used in this spinal cord regeneration circuit (see Figure 3). Referring to Becker?s rat leg regeneration experiment (see Figure on page 153 of TBE) we see that he obtained significant regeneration results using resistance values approximately between 10^6 to 10^8 ohms. This corresponds to a factor of 100 in variance in relative current of injury magnitude while still getting significant regeneration results. The actual current generated is given by the use of ohms law. That is the current (I) is given by: I = V/R ; where V is approximately the difference between the electron work functions for pure platinum metal and pure silver metal and is equal to the contact potential difference between platinum and silver, which is approximately 1.3 volts; R is the value of the carbon resistor. Now, if we can answer the question; how does the cross sectional area of the rat leg amputation site compare to the cross sectional area of the spinal cord location that needs repair, we can then easily determine the value of R needed in Figures 2 and 3. Remember we have a slop factor of approximately a 100 to work with. To a first approximation assume that the spinal cord cross section at the particular location of damage is equal to three rat leg amputation site cross sections that Becker used in his experiments (see attached addendum to reference 1). Then we will need three times the current Becker used to get significant regeneration results. By simply choosing a value of resistance around 30 meg ohms, which is in the mid-range resistance value used by Becker for successful rat leg regeneration, we are assured of being in a good current of injury range for the initiation of regeneration of one rat leg. So, by reducing the resistance by a factor of three (10 meg ohms) we will have the current of injury for the initiation of regeneration of three rat legs or one spinal cord. Now, noting that there are two pure platinum plated electrodes (one for each spinal cord end that needs the negative current of injury for initiation of regeneration of three rat legs) sharing the current we can half the value of R to 5 meg ohms, so that both electrodes will have the current of injury of one electrode that uses a 10 meg ohm resistor. The length of spinal cord growth needed in general is quite short, being approximately the gap length between spinal vertebrate. That distance is smaller than or comparable to the observed re-growth length of the rat?s leg in Becker?s experiment. As the two ends of the spinal cord mate up and properly connect together, the two Teflon coated wires can be simply pulled out and their hole pathways will almost immediately close up and start healing shut.

    Even though the above described surgical process could or should work alone to regenerate spinal cord injury/damage, it would be, in my opinion, foolish not to take advantage of the great advancements in biological knowledge and technical advancements in potentially complementary biological technologies during and following this new spinal cord surgical procedure. For example, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, i.e. DMSO, which for some unknown reason is still not allowed by the FDA to halt spinal cord damage from trauma driven inflammation (see reference 2), the use of ?scar tissue? formation suppression factors, the use of neural growth factors, the use of the patient?s own activated adult stem cells removed from the patient?s blood, the use of appropriate wavelengths of laser light to facilitate spinal cord growth and the union/proper connection between both ends of the now mending together spinal cord ends (see reference 3). The use of these complementary biological technologies should greatly reduce recovery time and enhance the probability of the final successful out come.

    I hope I have made a persuasive case to neurosurgeons, who will do the real work of actual implementation of Becker and his team?s work done so many years ago. Being a layman in surgical matters, I have faith and hope that skilled and highly trained neurosurgeons will see and know clearly how to convert Becker and his team?s work into physical reality.

    THE POLITICS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PROPOSAL

    Currently all experimental spinal cord surgeries must first be approved by the FDA. The FDA almost invariably takes many months to years to make a decision on a proposal. In my opinion this should not be so. The FDA should be removed from this decision approval process. It should be totally turned over to competent surgical committees of reputable competently run medical institutions, period. There is no legitimate reason for upper management politicos at the FDA making these decisions that amount to life and death decisions for many desperate quadriplegics and paraplegics, effectively slowly dying in misery. Let me give you several pertinent examples of what I mean here.

    Example 1 - My friend, Bill, who is quadriplegic, e-mailed a medical doctor friend for advice on working with the FDA. Here is their e-mail correspondence:

    Dear XXXXX

    As you know the V.A. is ready to do something to help/cure spinal cord paralysis. They would like to do it with UCLA who I am meeting with on Jan. 4th. It?s going to be either something along the lines that Dr. Becker wrote about or stem cells (perhaps a combo of both). I assume whatever is chosen to try will need FDA approval. Do you have any idea how long that approval process will take and any ideas how to shorten the time frame?
    Bill

    Reply: Dear Bill

    As is my custom, I?m going to be frank and honest with you. The FDA approval process is long and burdensome. It usually takes several years to get the simplest thing approved. Also, unfortunately, the FDA is a totally corrupt organization, essentially run by the pharmaceutical companies that it was designed to oversee, restrain and control.

    The FDA is not there to protect the public. It is there to protect corporate interests ? mainly the interests of the drug companies.

    I was part of the team that went through that FDA process years ago when we did our ? XXXXXXXXXXXX ? studies. That took about 3 years for approval. The times for approval have NOT gotten shorter.

    There are no known ways to shorten the time frame. Remember, you?re dealing with government here ? and those wheels turn VERY slowly.

    XXXXXXX

    Example 2 - I asked my friend Bill to write a description of his life as a quadriplegic and to ask other quadriplegics friends to do the same. What follows is Bill?s story followed by one other quadriplegic friend?s story.

    Dear Gary

    I really try not to complain a lot since it just gets my friends or myself down even further. I complain more to you than anyone else that I can think of because we are so close and you seem to get it. The easy and clear answer to complaining is putting a gun in your mouth, but since my fingers don?t move, I don?t even have control over how I would kill myself. I wake up every morning with the same burning question ? can I do this one more day? It?s always too hot or too cold in my room and my chest is full of junk built up from not being moved enough over night. You can only work your care giver so hard and a quadriplegic has to decide exactly what he or she needs to stay alive while not upsetting the care giver. The care giver is my life line to staying alive and finding a good care giver can take years. Without a care giver I would only make it a matter of hours before I needed to eat or defecate two things (plus many more) that I can?t do myself. As much as I desire being alone for even 8 or 10 hours, it can?t be done unless we are talking about 9 pm till 7 am. After that short period I need to stretch my legs out (due to intense pain) clean out my lungs, use two different machines for ten to twenty five minutes that shake my body for general movement in my lymphatic system and clear out excess phlegm. The list goes on, steaming (again to clear the lungs), using the standing table for at least an hour so some of the leg muscles remain, and the list goes on.

    All and all it takes about three to four hours, then time for breakfast. Although I am okayed to eat whatever I want, I can?t afford to gain weight and I need to keep my bowels moving. So eating becomes eat what fits, but watch out for too many calories and getting stopped up. All day I watch the clock since it rules my life. Certain things have to be done at certain times ? period. Once breakfast is out of the way, it?s back to the search for the cure. This process so far and what I discuss later on is the same every day regardless if it is Thursday or Sunday. There are no breaks or vacations EVER.

    Since I take a dozen or more drugs an inventory is done twice a week and some drugs require a new script each month. So my care giver is off to the doctor?s office then to the drug store. Whatever problems come up while she is gone must wait. All the time that various items are taken care of life goes on like paying the bills or calling a plumber. The pain in my legs (which requires three narcotics) is constant and now effects my shoulders. With the pain your memory slips almost daily since pain pills attack one?s mind not the pain itself, which never leaves. The pills make you care less about it, but you need to figure out ways to make a living to pay for all the services like $3,650 a year to have a second person stop by and help lift me onto a shower chair. So you not only have a care giver, but several part time workers. You need to do things at their time schedule not yours and your lucky if you can find them. I mean who can live on $3,650 a year. Ergo you shower between their job and home. When someone gets sick everything becomes a much bigger mess. In the beginning sleep was at a premium due to super strong spasms. They are strong enough to throw you around the bed at night, so that I don?t focus on the spasms, I play mind games. Like what the cure will look like? Do all these companies that sell drugs really want a cure? Am I going to be able to still do everything once morning comes? Is working day and night with no answer in sight worth all this effort? Aren?t I really looking at winning a war that is not winnable? In the last fifteen minutes how many times have I thought about checking out early? Is this death by a thousand cuts? Wouldn?t it have been better to have cut everything off as soon as I got out of the hospital for after all most people would have forgotten me by now. In the last four years, I have been waking up almost hourly from pain. Sleeping is very difficult for lots of reasons including the temperature in the room. As you know when it?s warm those very small muscles in one?s body are suppose to slow down contraction rate. In my body those muscles never change speed regardless of the temperature that I am in. Air conditioning seems to go right to the bone, so regardless of what I am wearing, I never can warm up. If I am early for an appointment, I usually stay in the van (if it?s cold out) or right outside of the building if it it?s hot out. Being comfortable in your own skin just doesn?t happen. I feel like I am in prison and my cell happens to be exactly my body size.

    Lately it has been shoulder pain that wakes me up before the leg pain. Once your awake you feel both of them, then start deciding if I should call my care giver, which wakes me up further. Do I take another pain pill or the ramifications don?t merit it. I check my eyes often to see if they are yellow, meaning my liver is on over loaded from pain pills. Do I want that hang over feeling the next morning just so I might get an extra hour of sleep? All the medications have made my mouth dry so do I drink some water and add to my water weight and kidney problems? Should I drink some water so that the tube that goes directly into my bladder stays wet enough? The last time I was a little short on water, that tube stuck to my bladder wall and the hospital people told me I could die if they didn?t get the tube loose and the urine flowing. My last blood test showed too little salt (and no taking in more salt won?t fix that problem says my kidney doctor) meaning I have been drinking to much water. Ah after all that thought, I am now fully awake and in serious pain. I call my care giver to catch her upset about something that she doesn?t want to discuss. If I don?t show an interest she will be down my throat in the morning is the norm. Having a female care giver is the same relationship that you have with a spouse, but without any sexual contact. She tells me about her life if I want to listen or not and she already knows all about my life because we are together 24/7 plus when using the phone I have to use a speaker phone. She has the right to yell at me or be silent, but I can?t.

    Example 3

    Hello Gary

    Bill asked me to send a quick description of some of the not-so-fun things I endure every day as a result of my paralysis and of some of the unbelievable things that have happed to me.

    In general, let?s say getting up and through every day is a battle. Pretty much every minute I am awake I am in pain somewhere, my back, my back side or my neck. It fortunately usually isn?t so bad that should take pain pills, which I don?t ever. I battle my skin on my back side every day to keep from getting a pressure sore. I?ve had several that were deep or that healed very slowly and kept me in bed for long periods of time.

    I can not get myself in and out of bed. So, after my care giver hopefully arrives around 7:00 in the evening, makes my dinner, and puts me in bed and positions me for the night around 10:00, I attempt to sleep all night in the same position on my stomach, which isn?t very restful if the positioning didn?t go well or if I have the occasional accidental bowel movement. I do this so my skin can heal and be ready for the next full day of sitting. Try working 8 or 9 hours a day with little sleep. I?ve been doing it for nearly twenty four years now.

    Having no bowel or bladder control isn?t any fun either. As long as the suppository works and the catheter doesn?t leak or fall off and things stick to schedule it is manageable. But there is always the possibility of an accident and then scrambling to hopefully find one of my caregivers or a roommate who can drop what they are doing and help me out. Sometimes I have had to sit for hours in burning urine - soaked pants waiting for help.

    Breaking my neck in 1979 and becoming a quadriplegic wasn?t the only major injury life had in store for me. About 12 years ago I was sitting on the sidewalk waiting for the signal to cross so I could wait on my van to be finished. Out of nowhere a woman runs a red light, gets hit by a car starting out and slams into me at about 35 miles an hour sending me with my wheelchair attached flying through the air about 20 feet up into a parking lot where I was wedged head first under a car in the second space. She also flew up into the parking lot and hit the car I was under, nearly hitting me twice. I spent 6 months in bed with multiple compound fractures and missed almost a year and a half of work. Naturally she was poor and had the minimum insurance. So I was just as financially injured as I was physically. I still also have complications from that accident with weakness in my right arm, which was snapped at the shoulder and extra problems with my skin on my right side from my shattered femur. XXXXXXXX

    Approximately 12,000 new cases of spinal cord injury occur every year in the U.S. alone. There are currently approximately 300,000 people/patients living with neurological consequences of generally traumatic injuries (quadriplegic, paraplegics, and various serious neurological malfunctioning). The number would be substantially higher, however they have a high mortality rate from lung infection, kidney infections, pressure/bed sores, general infections, and suicide. The U.S. medical industrial complex makes many billions of dollars a year off this deplorable situation, which must come to an end.

    You should now clearly see how desperate the situation really is and why FDA politicos should/must be taken out of the decision making process for experimental spinal cord surgeries. This decision making process clearly needs to be in the hands of institutions that have highly trained and skilled neurosurgeons that know what they are doing and know how to judge and evaluate all new surgical proposals for curing spinal cord paralysis. Our proposal here is only one possible way to achieve the cure. What neurosurgeons need is for the FDA to get out and stay out of the way. The simplest method for this that saves face for the FDA, is for them to rubber stamp almost any experimental spinal surgical procedure submitted by a competent and reputable medical institution.

    This proposal is going to be presented first to the University of California at Los Angeles Medical School Neurosurgeons and to the Veterans Administration doctors at the Los Angeles V.A. If they accept this proposal as viable and put their own version of it into the FDA for approval, we will wait a short period of time for a positive FDA response (they give the go ahead). If the FDA does the usual hurry up and wait routine, then we will go world wide with this proposal where progress in spinal cord repair surgery is not in a state of stagnation as it is in the U.S. and they have no substantial FDA- like suppressor regulator agency; i.e. China, India, Mexico, Portugal, etc.. Perhaps, if the doctors at UCLA and or the V.A. perceive that the FDA is up to it?s usual ever so slow mode, they can be kind enough to send copies of this proposal to their favorite contacts at the FDA, who can pass this proposal along. This will give the politicos a chance to consult with their pharmaceutical patrons, who can then quickly decide if they want the FDA to gracefully allow U.S. neurosurgeons to promptly attempt a spinal cord paralysis cure or they want it done elsewhere on the planet.

    I can absolutely assure the FDA that the quadriplegics and paraplegics and their families and friends have had it with the FDA?s snail?s pace in approving new experimental procedures. Let me put it another way; what if the FDA announced it was approving of a large number of medical institutions putting out the call for volunteers for an experimental spinal cord operation to attempt to cure paralysis, with the stipulations: 1) That probably 95+% of the accepted volunteers would survive the operation; 2) There would be a small probability of a slight worsening of their condition, and 3) There would be a significant possibility of a significant improvement in their condition and or a cure. How many volunteers do you think these institutions would get? FDA, LET MY PEOPLE GO.

    IF YOU FOUND THIS ARTICLE OF REAL VALUE, PLEASE MAKE A HARD COPY WHILE STILL AVAILABLE.

    SOME CRUCIAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS BY GARY WADE

    Q1 - In your opinion how long would it take using your proposed spinal cord repair operation in conjunction with stem cells to repair spinal cord damage.

    A1 - I believe it would only take three or four weeks and perhaps even a good deal less. You remember in the proposal where I mention a salamander's ability to grow back half of its heart in twelve hours or less (see pages 197 to 200 of Becker's book THE BODY ELECTRIC). The salamander can do that for two main reasons: 1) At the surgical location on the salamander heart, it is producing an adequate negative current of injury in the form of hydroxyl ions, and 2) The blood clot that forms at the amputation/surgical location is made up mainly of Salamander red blood corpuscles that still have their cell nucleus. These blood cells function/act as stem cells in the salamander. These salamander blood/stem cells adjacent to the surgical site immediately form a blastema and the rest of the blood clot/stem cells join into the forward moving blastema to complete the total heart structure in this nearly unbelievable time span.

    Well we have a very analogous situation with our spinal cord operation when it is supplemented with adequate stem cell numbers. For instance, after the spinal cords have had controlled damage/abrasion done to them and the platinum electrodes have been implanted we will have the required negative current of injury in the form of hydroxyl ions, all that is needed now is blastema formation/development, which the stem cells can be used to greatly accelerate and maintain an accelerated repair work rate. Because of the metabolism rate/life span length differences between salamanders and man, I will quesstimate that it will take maybe twenty plus times longer to repair our spinal cord then that of a salamander, without an external (from outside of body) supply of stem cells. However, if a more than adequate supply number of stem cells, of the appropriate type, are constantly being made available at the damage/repair site it may be a much shorter time span for repair. Of course other helpful things can also be done to accelerate repair, i.e. application of laser light in certain wavelength ranges, ATP injection/insertion, DMSO usage to suppress inflamation/swelling induced damage from the operation, etc.

    I hope my reasoning is clear enough for you, let me know if you need more clarification on anything.



    Q 2- On the bottom of page five of your proposal, you mention the use of the patient's own activated adult stem cells removed from the patient's blood to be used to augment the operation procedure. Could you, in detail, elaborate on what you mean here?

    A2 - First off, I am by no means an expert in stem cell technology. I, like large numbers of people, have read numerous articles on stem cells and I have had the good fortune to meet people who work in stem cell research. From my readings and communications with people who know stem cell technology, I can state with confidence that there are at least two stem cell types that the patient's body will not reject and therefore the patient will not need to take a life long regiment of anti- rejection drugs, which take down the patient's immune system and therefore lead to a whole host of infection problems, which can be quite life threatening. The first of these safe stem cell types is a sub set of umbilical cord stem cells which are effectively available for harvesting planet-wide. As long as these cells are not infected and are fresh (significantly younger than 90 days) they are usable with no rejection problems.

    The second safe stem cell type is the patient's own activated adult stem cells removed from the patient's own blood. These cells were originally discovered by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, using his Rife microscope (see the Febuary 1944 issue of the Journal of The Franklin Institute, Vol. 237, THE NEW MICROSCOPES, A Discussion by R. E. SEIDEL, M.D. AND M. ELIZABETH WINTER, Philadelphia, Pa., Pages 116 to 127). Dr. Rife discovered and observed that scattered throughout human tissue were small packets/compartments that were filled with large numbers of very condensed in size/volume cells, which he named pin point cells. Dr. Rife using his Rife microscope and its superb micro manipulator system including micro pipette was able to surgically open up these packets located in small tissue samples and remove the content into cell growth medium in petrie dishes where over the ensuing days and weeks these very condensed granular like cells transformed into the activated adult stem cells we are familiar with today. All of this information should have or could have been common knowledge, however Dr. Rife's work was highly suppressed by the forces of non enlightenment and greed (See note at bottom).

    Currently several researchers have found ways to separate this condensed granular form of adult stem cells from human blood. They have also found various methods to get these cells to activate to varying degrees, so as to be usable for repair work in the human body. This condensed granular like form of adult stem cells occurs in human blood at an ultra high desity comparable to the density of platelet cells in human blood. Furthermore, these adult stem cells have a full complement of telomeres at the end of their chromosomes like that of a fetus before birth.

    So, adult stem cells are readily availible from the patient's own blood by the many billions. They just need to be separated out and be properly activated for surgical injection/insertion use during and following the operation.

    Note: The University of Southern California Medical School in 1934 set up The Special Medical Research Committee that oversaw the work of Dr. Royal Raymond Rife in three clinical trials carried out in 1934, 1935, and 1937. Dr. Rife had a 95+% cure rate for the common cancers types that occured during the 1930's. He had found that the common cancers of the 1930's were caused by a near virus sized microbe and that cancer cells were full of these microbes. He discovered that these microbes could be destroyed by an ultrasound frequency of 1,604,000 cycles per second. When these microbes were destroyed inside the cancer cell using 1,604,000 cycles per second of ultrasound, the cancer cell would be so disrupted that it was destroyed as well as the microbes. Also, by 1939 Dr. Rife had found the lethal ultrasound frequencies associated with microbes and viruses that caused 52 major diseases. This was all verified by the USC Special Medical Committee, which then suppressed all the reseach information.

    P.S. - Be sure to read the Q and A just preceeding this one.



    Q3 - How critical is the actual placement of the platinum needle into the spinal cord end sections and what about damage to the cord by the needles?

    A3 - Close examination of the spinal cord shows that it is highly vasculated and made up of various cell types that are well connected and held together by overlapping and tangled together fibers of the triple stranded protein of collagen, which is an n-type semiconductor. If a platinum needle with a negative potential, that is maintained on it, is inserted into the spinal cord end section there will be a negative electric current in the form of hydroxyl ions flowing off the platinum needle, but also since the platinum needle will be in physical contact (electrical contact) with the local collagen fiber matrix, this n-type semiconductor matrix will also be producing hydroxyl ion current.

    So, instead of a very localized surface (platinum needle surface) generating all the hydroxyl ions, the ions are generated over a small, but significant volume of tissue surrounding the platinum needle electrode. These hydroxyl ions diffuse throughout the local tissue region and draw in mainly positive metal ions to balance off against the negative charge of the hydroxyl ions. This negative current induced mixture of hydroxyl and positive metal ions supplies the needed positive ion concentrations and ph to support blastema formation at the surgical/wound site (Refer to Figure 7A of Reference 1 of the proposal). Figure 7A will give a qualitative idea of just how large an effective zone of hydroxyl ions and increased positive metal ions can be. Just imagine the rat leg/arm amputation site being one end of the surgically cut spinal cord. In other words the re-growth distance in Figure 7A is large enough, before diffusion driven hydroxyl ion concentrations become too low to continue tissue growth, that the platinum needle has some considerable slop in its potential placement position and there will still be successful results achieved. But yes, closer to the spinal cord surgery/controlled damage site is better.

    Now as for the damage caused by the platinum needle. This damage can be greatly mitigated by the use of very thin needles that are very sharp pointed, which displace tissue, but only do real damage along the point tip pathway. And remember all significant damage caused by the needle's insertion will be attempted to be repaired by the repair process the needle is supporting. As the needle is withdrawn there should be little damage left behind and that damage can be healed up with the assistance of laser light.



    Q4 - The spinal cord damage site can be anywhere along the spinal cord and the cross sectional area of the spinal cord of people will vary greatly in size, i.e. small children to large adults. How do you determine the needed negative current required to be flowing off the platinum needle at a particular spinal cord location in a particular person? How do you know you are providing just that negative current that is required?

    A4 - The cross sectional area of the spinal cord damage site can be determined from high resolution MRI or cat scan, since the cross sectional geometry of the spinal cord is well known and once one of the main dimensions is known the cross sectional area can be easily calculated. After the cross sectional area is known, we need to refer back to the Becker rat foreleg amputation and re-growth experiments from 1971 as discussed on pages 152 to 155 in the book THE BODY ELECTRIC. Surgeons who wish to use Becker?s experimental data to be able to calculate the usable negative current ranges for a particular spinal cord operation will need to obtain copies of Dr. Becker?s published article and the paper presented to the New York Academy of Medicine as discussed on page 154. Surgeons will need to determine the cross sectional area of the rat forearm at the amputation site and then divide this cross sectional area into the cross sectional area of the spinal cord damage site to be operated on. That number or ratio is then multiplied by optimum current found for rat forearm regeneration results (see pages 4 and 5 of the proposal) to obtain the needed current to be sent to each of the platinum needles used in the spinal cord regeneration/repair operation (assuming one platinum needle in each cord end). If two platinum needles are used in each spinal cord end, then the calculated current value is half in each needle.

    If you want to know that you are providing the right/calculated needed current to each of the platinum needles used, then you need to actually continually measure the current flowing to the needles. This is easily done by inserting a pico/nano amp meter between the resistor and silver plate in the circuit in Figures 2 and 3 of the proposal (Put in Google: Keithley Picoammeter). If the surgeon does not want to use the circuit in Figures 2 and 3 of the proposal, then he should have his electronics tech replace it with a feeble variable voltage power supply in series with a high ohm resistor that is in series with the pico/nano amp meter. The two output connections from this series combination go to the patient. The negative output connection to the platinum needles and the positive output connector to a pure platinum plate on the patient?s skin surface that has electrically conductive gel under the platinum plate.



    Q5 - Where do you obtain the platinum plated needles used in the operation?

    A5 - The platinum plated needles used in the operation have to be fabricated. If I were a surgeon and wanted some of these needles, here is what I would do. I would contact a company that fabricates Teflon coated non-magnetic alloy 316 stainless steel wire (type into Google: Teflon coated non-magnetic 316 stainless steel wire for medical use). I would find that some of these companies are already supplying Teflon coated 316 stainless steel wire for medical use. I would ask them to quote me a price for them to: 1) Strip off a certain length of the Teflon coating on Teflon coated 316 stainless steel wire of a specific length. The stripped off length of Teflon coating will be the length of the platinum plated needle. The rest of the wire length chosen is determined by which electrical circuit the surgeon and electronic tech opt for., 2) Have a precision machinist micro-grind the exposed 316 stainless steel wire end into a finely pointed tapered needle and then micro polish the needle., 3) Have the 316 stainless steel needle/wire end plated with a heavy platinum plating. Great care is to be taken to not bend or dull the needle point., and 4) A selection of various wire gauges probably ranging from around 24 to 30 gauge should be used along with various lengths of needles should be chosen. A large number of wire needles should be ordered at one time to keep the average cost per platinum plated wire needle down.



    Q6- How do you know when to take the platinum needles and the Teflon coated wires out?

    A6 - In my original answer to this question, I used a MRI machine to monitor spinal cord tissue growth to cross the gap. However, the non-magnetic stainless steel alloy 316 wire I proposed using turns out to act as a radio antenna for the strong approximately 60 mega hertz radio waves used by the MRI unit for imaging and this antenna coupling would probably cause spinal cord tissue burning where the platinum needles are placed in the cord. Therefore, the MRI is out and we are left with Cat Scan and ultrasound to monitor spinal cord growth. Once the Cat Scan or ultrasound shows the spinal cord has fully reconnected, the teflon coated wires connected to the platinum plated needles can be pulled out with pathways closing immediately behind them.



    Q7 - How do you keep the Teflon coated wires from accidentally being pulled/tugged on and therefore pulling out or moving the platinum plated needles from their proper position inside the spinal cord?

    A7 - There are at least two problems to overcome, so that the Teflon coated wires are not pulled in such a way as to dislodge or relocate the platinum plated needles. The first thing to do is to super glue the Teflon coated wire to the dead skin layer at a location an inch or so from where the wires come out of the surgical wound. This can easily be done by properly cleaning the dead skin layer and then sliding an electrical wire splicing sleeve over the Teflon coated wire and crimping it down onto the wire at the location to be super glued. You then just super glue the splicing sleeve to the dead skin layer. As a backup safety, you can super glue a second splicing sleeve at a location half an inch away from the first one. Now you need to cover the wire exiting the wound area and the first glued down splicing sleeve with a shallow plastic cup-like cover that is taped to the patient?s back or neck region. The purpose of the cup is to not have the wires touched or moved around in any way during the regeneration process.

    There is however, one more potentially serious problem to deal with, namely swelling of the surgical wound area following surgery. If the Teflon coated wire is embedded in or butted up against the flesh of the closed off surgical wound and the tissue begins to swell up significantly, we can expect the wire to be drawn upward/outward from the body with the upward/outward movement of the swelling tissue. This problem can be mitigated in at least two ways. First, the use of anti inflammatory drugs, i.e. DMSO, etc.. Secondly, the use of a short length of thin walled Teflon tubing acting as a sheath for the Teflon coated wire in the wound closure region. This Teflon sheath would extend from a little above the dura matter coating the spinal cord to just outside the closed surgical wound. The Teflon sheath can be moved by the swelling process while the Teflon coated wire inside is free to slide relative to the sheath and keep its platinum plated needle end in place. The Teflon coated wire inside the sheath needs to be coated in a gel that is heavily doped with antibiotics and a high concentration of a high quality colloidal silver.



    ADDENDUM TO A7 ----- Date: 8/5/11

    Since initially writing A7, I have had the good fortune and pleasure to have a long detailed conversation with a very skilled and experienced neurosurgeon about Q7. He informed me how he would approach and solve the potential problems associated with the operation and Q7. He would tie off (suture) the Teflon wires to tissue at the inner exit to the spinal cord channel, so as to stabilize and hold the platinum plated needles in place. However, the needles could still be easily removed later by just pulling the wires out. He would use steroids (since he cannot use DMSO by FDA decree) to suppress swelling of the surgical region. Furthermore, since the needed electric current is so feeble, the current supply device can be made quite small and be implanted under the skin adjacent to the surgery site, so that there is no exposed anything to worry about.

    I so much appreciated his expert input to the problem, I have designed and built a physical mockup of the implant to be used by those surgeons that do not suffer under FDA like authorities.
    Figure A illustrates the construction of the implant device, which is in reality the circuits of Figures 2 and 3 on pages 15 and 16 of the proposal. Figure B illustrates how to test and verify the implant is operating properly before implantation. Keep in mind that this is only a crude first attempt mockup of the implant device. It can be made much smaller in its main body size and much smaller wire size can be used.

    What follows are instructions for fabrication of the implant and pictures of my first attempt to fabricate a realistic mockup of the implant device. I am turning all rights to this implant device into public domain. Let us get the days of spinal cord paralyses behind us. See pictures.

    1) Clean off oxide layer on long strip of pure silver ribbon using ultra fine steel wool.
    2) Use medium rough sand paper to sand/rough up one side of clean pure silver ribbon. This is done so that silver conductive epoxy will adhere well to the ribbon surface.
    3) Cut off a short chosen length of silver ribbon.
    4) Take the 1/8 watt high ohm (5M ohm to 10M ohm) carbon resistor and cut one of its leads to just under the length of the previously cut length of silver ribbon.
    5) Take the other lead of the carbon resistor and rap it around the end of a drill bit forming a tight coil. Chose a drill bit that has approximately a diameter slightly larger than twice the diameter of the two bare stainless steel wire ends you are going to silver epoxy inside the tightly wound coil.
    6) Clean off the straight wire on the carbon resistor with very fine steel wool and lay it along the center length of the silver on the sanded side and with the wire end on the far end of the ribbon and just inside the edge of the ribbon. Now add a small dab of silver conductive epoxy on top of the wire at the far end location and wait for it to cure.
    7) Add silver conductive epoxy inside tightly wound coil. Add silver conductive epoxy to one of the two wire bare ends and insert them both inside coil and let the epoxy cure.
    8) Paint a layer of electrically insulating lacquer type material, such as clear finger nail polish over the entire carbon resistor and on the silver conductive epoxied coil end of the carbon resistor and let it dry/cure. Repeat whole process one more time.
    9) Fold carbon resistor lead over 180 degrees, so that the newly silver conductive epoxied wire leads are going off the other end of the silver ribbon.
    10) Now cover completely the sanded side of ribbon with silicone along with carbon resistor and its epoxied coil and let it cure.

    UPDATE SUPPLEMENT TO A7 ---- DATE: 2/7/12 Using the same implant fabrication steps 1 thru 10 listed above, I have fabricated a new realistic implant mockup like that which would actually be used in the actual operation (see pictures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,



    Q8 - Can gold plated needles be used in place of platinum plated needles?

    A8 - Yes, gold plated needles can be used in place of platinum plated needles. I only used platinum plated needles in the proposal, because Dr. Becker did almost all of his experimental work, which I depended on for the proposal's foundation, with platinum wire. However, there is a significant difference in work functions between platinum and gold. It will therefore be necessary to perform the measurement experiment illustrated in Figure B of Addendum To A7 using gold plated needles in place of platinum plated needles and the resistor value is to be adjusted downward in value until a current value equivalent to using platinum plated needles with the old resistor values is achieved. Note that in Figure B the resistor is hidden out of sight behind the silver flat plate electrode suspended in the salt solution. You will needed to build a realistic implant. Be sure to have a competent electrical tech on your team. As a practical matter gold platers are much more common/available then platinum platers. May god be with you.

    You now have the needed implant for surgery (see Figure A) and pictures of steps of the fabrication process.

    SOME CRUCIAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS BY GARY WADE

    Q1 - In your opinion how long would it take using your proposed spinal cord repair operation in conjunction with stem cells to repair spinal cord damage.

    A1 - I believe it would only take three or four weeks and perhaps even a good deal less. You remember in the proposal where I mention a salamander's ability to grow back half of its heart in twelve hours or less (see pages 197 to 200 of Becker's book THE BODY ELECTRIC). The salamander can do that for two main reasons: 1) At the surgical location on the salamander heart, it is producing an adequate negative current of injury in the form of hydroxyl ions, and 2) The blood clot that forms at the amputation/surgical location is made up mainly of Salamander red blood corpuscles that still have their cell nucleus. These blood cells function/act as stem cells in the salamander. These salamander blood/stem cells adjacent to the surgical site immediately form a blastema and the rest of the blood clot/stem cells join into the forward moving blastema to complete the total heart structure in this nearly unbelievable time span.

    Well we have a very analogous situation with our spinal cord operation when it is supplemented with adequate stem cell numbers. For instance, after the spinal cords have had controlled damage/abrasion done to them and the platinum electrodes have been implanted we will have the required negative current of injury in the form of hydroxyl ions, all that is needed now is blastema formation/development, which the stem cells can be used to greatly accelerate and maintain an accelerated repair work rate. Because of the metabolism rate/life span length differences between salamanders and man, I will quesstimate that it will take maybe twenty plus times longer to repair our spinal cord then that of a salamander, without an external (from outside of body) supply of stem cells. However, if a more than adequate supply number of stem cells, of the appropriate type, are constantly being made available at the damage/repair site it may be a much shorter time span for repair. Of course other helpful things can also be done to accelerate repair, i.e. application of laser light in certain wavelength ranges, ATP injection/insertion, DMSO usage to suppress inflamation/swelling induced damage from the operation, etc.

    I hope my reasoning is clear enough for you, let me know if you need more clarification on anything.



    Q 2- On the bottom of page five of your proposal, you mention the use of the patient's own activated adult stem cells removed from the patient's blood to be used to augment the operation procedure. Could you, in detail, elaborate on what you mean here?

    A2 - First off, I am by no means an expert in stem cell technology. I, like large numbers of people, have read numerous articles on stem cells and I have had the good fortune to meet people who work in stem cell research. From my readings and communications with people who know stem cell technology, I can state with confidence that there are at least two stem cell types that the patient's body will not reject and therefore the patient will not need to take a life long regiment of anti- rejection drugs, which take down the patient's immune system and therefore lead to a whole host of infection problems, which can be quite life threatening. The first of these safe stem cell types is a sub set of umbilical cord stem cells which are effectively available for harvesting planet-wide. As long as these cells are not infected and are fresh (significantly younger than 90 days) they are usable with no rejection problems.

    The second safe stem cell type is the patient's own activated adult stem cells removed from the patient's own blood. These cells were originally discovered by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, using his Rife microscope (see the Febuary 1944 issue of the Journal of The Franklin Institute, Vol. 237, THE NEW MICROSCOPES, A Discussion by R. E. SEIDEL, M.D. AND M. ELIZABETH WINTER, Philadelphia, Pa., Pages 116 to 127). Dr. Rife discovered and observed that scattered throughout human tissue were small packets/compartments that were filled with large numbers of very condensed in size/volume cells, which he named pin point cells. Dr. Rife using his Rife microscope and its superb micro manipulator system including micro pipette was able to surgically open up these packets located in small tissue samples and remove the content into cell growth medium in petrie dishes where over the ensuing days and weeks these very condensed granular like cells transformed into the activated adult stem cells we are familiar with today. All of this information should have or could have been common knowledge, however Dr. Rife's work was highly suppressed by the forces of non enlightenment and greed (See note at bottom).

    Currently several researchers have found ways to separate this condensed granular form of adult stem cells from human blood. They have also found various methods to get these cells to activate to varying degrees, so as to be usable for repair work in the human body. This condensed granular like form of adult stem cells occurs in human blood at an ultra high desity comparable to the density of platelet cells in human blood. Furthermore, these adult stem cells have a full complement of telomeres at the end of their chromosomes like that of a fetus before birth.

    So, adult stem cells are readily availible from the patient's own blood by the many billions. They just need to be separated out and be properly activated for surgical injection/insertion use during and following the operation.

    Note: The University of Southern California Medical School in 1934 set up The Special Medical Research Committee that oversaw the work of Dr. Royal Raymond Rife in three clinical trials carried out in 1934, 1935, and 1937. Dr. Rife had a 95+% cure rate for the common cancers types that occured during the 1930's. He had found that the common cancers of the 1930's were caused by a near virus sized microbe and that cancer cells were full of these microbes. He discovered that these microbes could be destroyed by an ultrasound frequency of 1,604,000 cycles per second. When these microbes were destroyed inside the cancer cell using 1,604,000 cycles per second of ultrasound, the cancer cell would be so disrupted that it was destroyed as well as the microbes. Also, by 1939 Dr. Rife had found the lethal ultrasound frequencies associated with microbes and viruses that caused 52 major diseases. This was all verified by the USC Special Medical Committee, which then suppressed all the reseach information.

    P.S. - Be sure to read the Q and A just preceeding this one.



    Q3 - How critical is the actual placement of the platinum needle into the spinal cord end sections and what about damage to the cord by the needles?

    A3 - Close examination of the spinal cord shows that it is highly vasculated and made up of various cell types that are well connected and held together by overlapping and tangled together fibers of the triple stranded protein of collagen, which is an n-type semiconductor. If a platinum needle with a negative potential, that is maintained on it, is inserted into the spinal cord end section there will be a negative electric current in the form of hydroxyl ions flowing off the platinum needle, but also since the platinum needle will be in physical contact (electrical contact) with the local collagen fiber matrix, this n-type semiconductor matrix will also be producing hydroxyl ion current.

    So, instead of a very localized surface (platinum needle surface) generating all the hydroxyl ions, the ions are generated over a small, but significant volume of tissue surrounding the platinum needle electrode. These hydroxyl ions diffuse throughout the local tissue region and draw in mainly positive metal ions to balance off against the negative charge of the hydroxyl ions. This negative current induced mixture of hydroxyl and positive metal ions supplies the needed positive ion concentrations and ph to support blastema formation at the surgical/wound site (Refer to Figure 7A of Reference 1 of the proposal). Figure 7A will give a qualitative idea of just how large an effective zone of hydroxyl ions and increased positive metal ions can be. Just imagine the rat leg/arm amputation site being one end of the surgically cut spinal cord. In other words the re-growth distance in Figure 7A is large enough, before diffusion driven hydroxyl ion concentrations become too low to continue tissue growth, that the platinum needle has some considerable slop in its potential placement position and there will still be successful results achieved. But yes, closer to the spinal cord surgery/controlled damage site is better.

    Now as for the damage caused by the platinum needle. This damage can be greatly mitigated by the use of very thin needles that are very sharp pointed, which displace tissue, but only do real damage along the point tip pathway. And remember all significant damage caused by the needle's insertion will be attempted to be repaired by the repair process the needle is supporting. As the needle is withdrawn there should be little damage left behind and that damage can be healed up with the assistance of laser light.



    Q4 - The spinal cord damage site can be anywhere along the spinal cord and the cross sectional area of the spinal cord of people will vary greatly in size, i.e. small children to large adults. How do you determine the needed negative current required to be flowing off the platinum needle at a particular spinal cord location in a particular person? How do you know you are providing just that negative current that is required?

    A4 - The cross sectional area of the spinal cord damage site can be determined from high resolution MRI or cat scan, since the cross sectional geometry of the spinal cord is well known and once one of the main dimensions is known the cross sectional area can be easily calculated. After the cross sectional area is known, we need to refer back to the Becker rat foreleg amputation and re-growth experiments from 1971 as discussed on pages 152 to 155 in the book THE BODY ELECTRIC. Surgeons who wish to use Becker?s experimental data to be able to calculate the usable negative current ranges for a particular spinal cord operation will need to obtain copies of Dr. Becker?s published article and the paper presented to the New York Academy of Medicine as discussed on page 154. Surgeons will need to determine the cross sectional area of the rat forearm at the amputation site and then divide this cross sectional area into the cross sectional area of the spinal cord damage site to be operated on. That number or ratio is then multiplied by optimum current found for rat forearm regeneration results (see pages 4 and 5 of the proposal) to obtain the needed current to be sent to each of the platinum needles used in the spinal cord regeneration/repair operation (assuming one platinum needle in each cord end). If two platinum needles are used in each spinal cord end, then the calculated current value is half in each needle.

    If you want to know that you are providing the right/calculated needed current to each of the platinum needles used, then you need to actually continually measure the current flowing to the needles. This is easily done by inserting a pico/nano amp meter between the resistor and silver plate in the circuit in Figures 2 and 3 of the proposal (Put in Google: Keithley Picoammeter). If the surgeon does not want to use the circuit in Figures 2 and 3 of the proposal, then he should have his electronics tech replace it with a feeble variable voltage power supply in series with a high ohm resistor that is in series with the pico/nano amp meter. The two output connections from this series combination go to the patient. The negative output connection to the platinum needles and the positive output connector to a pure platinum plate on the patient?s skin surface that has electrically conductive gel under the platinum plate.



    Q5 - Where do you obtain the platinum plated needles used in the operation?

    A5 - The platinum plated needles used in the operation have to be fabricated. If I were a surgeon and wanted some of these needles, here is what I would do. I would contact a company that fabricates Teflon coated non-magnetic alloy 316 stainless steel wire (type into Google: Teflon coated non-magnetic 316 stainless steel wire for medical use).

I would ask them to quote me a price for them to: 1) Strip off a certain length of the Teflon coating on Teflon coated 316 stainless steel wire of a specific length. The stripped off length of Teflon coating will be the length of the platinum plated needle. The rest of the wire length chosen is determined by which electrical circuit the surgeon and electronic tech opt for., 2) Have a precision machinist micro-grind the exposed 316 stainless steel wire end into a finely pointed tapered needle and then micro polish the needle., 3) Have the 316 stainless steel needle/wire end plated with a heavy platinum plating. Great care is to be taken to not bend or dull the needle point., and 4) A selection of various wire gauges probably ranging from around 24 to 30 gauge should be used along with various lengths of needles should be chosen. A large number of wire needles should be ordered at one time to keep the average cost per platinum plated wire needle down.



    Q6- How do you know when to take the platinum needles and the Teflon coated wires out?

    A6 - In my original answer to this question, I used a MRI machine to monitor spinal cord tissue growth to cross the gap. However, the non-magnetic stainless steel alloy 316 wire I proposed using turns out to act as a radio antenna for the strong approximately 60 mega hertz radio waves used by the MRI unit for imaging and this antenna coupling would probably cause spinal cord tissue burning where the platinum needles are placed in the cord. Therefore, the MRI is out and we are left with Cat Scan and ultrasound to monitor spinal cord growth. Once the Cat Scan or ultrasound shows the spinal cord has fully reconnected, the teflon coated wires connected to the platinum plated needles can be pulled out with pathways closing immediately behind them.



    Q7 - How do you keep the Teflon coated wires from accidentally being pulled/tugged on and therefore pulling out or moving the platinum plated needles from their proper position inside the spinal cord?

    A7 - There are at least two problems to overcome, so that the Teflon coated wires are not pulled in such a way as to dislodge or relocate the platinum plated needles. The first thing to do is to super glue the Teflon coated wire to the dead skin layer at a location an inch or so from where the wires come out of the surgical wound. This can easily be done by properly cleaning the dead skin layer and then sliding an electrical wire splicing sleeve over the Teflon coated wire and crimping it down onto the wire at the location to be super glued. You then just super glue the splicing sleeve to the dead skin layer. As a backup safety, you can super glue a second splicing sleeve at a location half an inch away from the first one. Now you need to cover the wire exiting the wound area and the first glued down splicing sleeve with a shallow plastic cup-like cover that is taped to the patient?s back or neck region. The purpose of the cup is to not have the wires touched or moved around in any way during the regeneration process.

    There is however, one more potentially serious problem to deal with, namely swelling of the surgical wound area following surgery. If the Teflon coated wire is embedded in or butted up against the flesh of the closed off surgical wound and the tissue begins to swell up significantly, we can expect the wire to be drawn upward/outward from the body with the upward/outward movement of the swelling tissue. This problem can be mitigated in at least two ways. First, the use of anti inflammatory drugs, i.e. DMSO, etc.. Secondly, the use of a short length of thin walled Teflon tubing acting as a sheath for the Teflon coated wire in the wound closure region. This Teflon sheath would extend from a little above the dura matter coating the spinal cord to just outside the closed surgical wound. The Teflon sheath can be moved by the swelling process while the Teflon coated wire inside is free to slide relative to the sheath and keep its platinum plated needle end in place. The Teflon coated wire inside the sheath needs to be coated in a gel that is heavily doped with antibiotics and a high concentration of a high quality colloidal silver.

    Q8 - Can gold plated needles be used in place of platinum plated needles?

    A8 - Yes, gold plated needles can be used in place of platinum plated needles. I only used platinum plated needles in the proposal, because Dr. Becker did almost all of his experimental work, which I depended on for the proposal's foundation, with platinum wire. However, there is a significant difference in work functions between platinum and gold. It will therefore be necessary to perform the measurement experiment illustrated in Figure B of Addendum To A7 using gold plated needles in place of platinum plated needles and the resistor value is to be adjusted downward in value until a current value equivalent to using platinum plated needles with the old resistor values is achieved. Note that in Figure B the resistor is hidden out of sight behind the silver flat plate electrode suspended in the salt solution. You will needed to build a realistic implant. Be sure to have a competent electrical tech on your team. As a practical matter gold platers are much more common/available then platinum platers. May god be with you.

    You now have the needed implant for surgery (see Figure A) and pictures of steps of the fabrication process.

    IF YOU FOUND THIS ARTICLE OF REAL VALUE, PLEASE MAKE A HARD COPY WHILE STILL AVAILABLE.

    He died back in 2008 but his books are still available at Amazon.

    Just to be clear - this is pseudoscience, not a 'forgotten cure'. The argument offered doesn't even rise to the level of a coherent research proposal, let alone a robust treatment for spinal cord injury. The 50% of the post devoted to excoriating the FDA is also highly ill-conceived and prejudicial.

    Let the reader beware.

    Every so often there's Rife programmable frequency generators for sale here along with plasma machines and angel light articles. There's quite a few ancient whopper theories posted in the archives.

    Has anyone tested the Rife programmable frequency generator, such as the Skilling Photon Genie or the Photon Genius to help dissolve the glial scar in the spinal cord?

    Yep, these guys did...HERE

    But the FDA caught up HERE

    Well, both of those posts are at least 5 years old; 2111 and 2009 for the FDA. The persons who responded in the blog were responding without any personal experience using the units and no knowledge of the value of the units or what they are specifically used for. Have spoken personally to several owners of the machines who have had success with healing, but none with a spinal cord injury condition.

    Have used the Photon Genie for a week which helped my low back aches. The Photon Genius is mostly used in clinics to turbocharge the immune system and has cured some people with cancer and other diseases. Spoke with one person who was using the Genius who had a stroke with paralysis and lots of nerve damage throughout the body and acute neuropathic pain to the point of not being able to function very well. The condition was really improving during my observation as the person was now jumping on a mini trampoline for exercise.

    If the Genius works well for trubocharging the immune system which I already knew about, my specific question related to whether anyone had tested either unit who also had a spinal cord injury and received positive results showing motor or sensory improvement due to diminished glial scar.

    Something I'd like to know too. ChABC has been researched for years yet nothing publicly available yet.

    I've read that every substance has a characteristic resonant frequency that if applies, dissolve a material. What would that be for the glial scar?

    0.046% of the world population has SCI. Uncommon, debilitating and a small market. Can we empower ourselves to solve this issue? (r we the ones we r waiting for?)
