Electrical Venom Neutralization – How Does V-Zap Work?
Even though electrical venom disruption/ neutralization methods have been in global use for decades, we are not aware of any reliable scientific, funded-studies which explain its effectiveness. This is not surprising since any large funded study usually requires a large pay-off and patent protection. The pharmaceutical industry understands this all too well. Thus, the best we can offer is the most reasonable theoretical foundation based upon available literature and our own observations.
a) Micro-Bubbles of Chlorine and Nascent Oxygen: High energy pulses projected through living tissue and interstitial fluids may cause salt and water decomposition creating micro-bubbles of gas. Both chlorine and nascent oxygen are well known disinfectants. It is theorized that venom and many pathogens are denatured by this momentary release of micro-bubbles of gas in the interstitial fluids- the same fluids where a fresh bite of venom tends to pool.
b) Molecular Disruption: A common explanation theorizes that venom molecules are more sensitive to electrical current disruption than normal mammal cells. Venom typically consists of long-chain organic proteins but they are unusual in that, besides carbon/ hydrogen/ oxygen atoms, it also contains metallic atoms such as copper. It is this metallic atom content which evidently makes this long chain molecule susceptible to electrical disruption. Once the molecule is broken in one or more places by a high parallel current, its ability to harm its cellular neighbors is lost and normal white blood cell repair and other immune responses can then begin to take place.
World-wide reports over several decades (see History) of successful use of high energy electrical pulses to disrupt most of these toxins suggests that a very broad mechanism is at play here – one which is not simply explained by metallic atoms comprising some of the toxin molecules. Our observations have led to the following alternate theory – that of chemical reaction disruption by both molecular electrical bonding disruption and electrolytic decomposition of cell wall deficient compounds. These processes can form a rich research arena but are beyond the scope of this “short” explanation. So here is a short key point summary:
* human cells have a substantial electrical “shield” around them protecting them from a relatively high external voltage E-field gradient should one be applied, (note: the cell membrane insulates against an approximate 500v/ mil E-field differential between the cell’s nucleus and the outer membrane, ref. B, C, D), and
* injected toxins and cell wall-deficient pathogens do not have this “shield”.
Therefore, these toxins and pathogens are uniquely susceptible to disruption by both electrical bonding disruption and electrolytic decomposition into hydrogen, oxygen and other atomic debris.
About Getting Consistent Results:
To assure a consistent denaturing of these toxins, these instruments use a constant-current circuit which assures the total delivered electrical charge is precisely the same for each protocol and uses pulses designed to cause little or no nerve stimulation (patents pending) . Further, since the long chain toxin molecules can take any orientation in the flesh, we recommend that the electrodes be placed in several different orientations as each of at least two protocols are run.
The Insect Protocol is designed to last one minute (or three minutes depending on device) for each of at least two electrode placement orientations. During this time, the pulse energy is slowly ramped up but not so much as to cause pain. Our tests have shown that most persons feel little or no electrical tingle. If the electrodes are placed directly over an underlying nerve, some discomfort may be felt. Simply stop and move the electrodes to another location spanning the bite and dab on some conductive electrode cream and try again. Each protocol (e.g.: Insect or Snake) is designed to deliver a precise electrical charge dosage in spite of variations in electrode contact conductivity. It is this controlled “dosage” which helps to assure consistent results (patent pending).
Snake bites are obviously a more serious event and some electrical discomfort can easily be tolerated. The three minute Snake Protocol (Model’s 21/ 33 only) applies a somewhat more aggressive pulse energy but not enough to cause pain. Most persons will feel some electrical ‘tingle’ using the smaller plug-in round electrodes but most persons feel barely a ‘tingle’ when the larger surface area ‘sticky’ electrodes are used. Similar to the Insect Protocol above, the Snake Protocol also ramps up electrical energy as the process proceeds. See the User Manuals for details on recommended electrode cream and placement.
