When I first found out about the AmpCoil I mentioned it to my local primary care physician to get his perspective. “Is it like an ab cruncher? Is it going to give you a six pack?” Not everyone possesses the desire to learn about new things. But you are here, which means that you want to better understand what I’ve been up to so…woohoo! Let’s get this party started.
What is an AmpCoil (AC)?
It’s a machine that emits pulsed electromagnetic vibrations tuned at different frequencies. Consider an MRI: a magnetic resonance image used to diagnose injury within the body. It uses powerful magnets to align our protons with their frequencies (yes, actually manipulate them) and measures the energy they emit once the field is turned off. We’ve been using magnets to diagnose since 1977 and while using them for treatment has been around longer it’s still very uncommon.
Why haven’t I ever heard of it before?
A two day trial of IVIG at Northwestern Memorial Hospital cost my insurance company $38,000. A personal AmpCoil unit that can be used an unlimited number of times, for multiple people, in the privacy of your home, to treat dozens of targeted issues (i.e. the common cold, migraines, depression, fungus, mold exposure, and Lyme) costs $8,000. Ultimately, for the pharmaceutical industry, cash is king.
Woah, that’s still a lot of money. Can you try it before you buy it?
It’s a huge investment upfront. Especially if you’ve never tried it before or, if you have, it was a one-off with your local AC ambassador’s unit. I emailed AC Support to find a rep in my area and used his one time. You don’t necessarily feel the realignment of your cells while coiling but symptomatic changes can occur hours or days later. You can also rent ACs from private individuals or receive treatments at your discretion from a holistic practitioner in your area.
Are there side effects?
Herxheimer reactions seem to be the most prevalent, at least for me. A herx occurs when a large number of pathogens die off all at once and emit endotoxins. Your body gets overwhelmed by what is essentially a poison that triggers temporary nausea, headaches, muscle weakness and other effects. These can be minimized by drinking water before and after a treatment and by taking charcoal binders that gather up all of the yuck and expedite it’s departure. Oh, and just like you can’t have phones or credit cards within a certain range while an MRI scan is being performed, the same goes while coiling. It’s powerful enough to damage the batteries in my power wheelchair so I have to coil exclusively in bed.
So, what exactly does a coiling session consist of?
It comes with an Android tablet and access to a proprietary app.
- First, you do a voice test by speaking slowly into the tablet’s microphone for about 90 seconds. The app uses the vibrations in your voice to quantify levels of frequency imbalance in specific areas.
- You’re provided with a prioritized list of things that need realignment. For example, an organ (liver, spleen, etc.), a nutritional component (amino acids, chemical sensitivity, etc.), or a pathogen (Lyme co-infections, fungus, etc.).
- Decide what you want to address and select a timed track (or “journey” in AC speak) to run on the machine itself. You can do multiple tracks in the same coiling session, up to 90 minutes per day, every other day.
- Find a quiet space away from phones and place the coil in the recommended place, usually the upper torso or stomach. You turn the machine on while it’s connected to the tablet and press start.
Interesting. Is it working for you?
Yes. I’ve been using it for four weeks and feel like my sister and I have the hang of it (I couldn’t coil without her help!). I’ve got 8 treatments left in a series of tracks that I curated myself and want to dive into the specifics of my initial experience upon completion. More to come!
