The Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) Story
Electricity for the treatment of human health conditions dates back to 2750 BC
with the use of electric eels to shock sick people back to health. Magnetic
rocks were used over the body to heal in ancient Africa
and in other cultures of antiquity.
Franz Anton Mesmer started using magnets in the late 1700s. The development of
electric current in various forms in the 1700s brought about all kinds of
experiments in clinical electromagnetism. In the USA,
over 10,000 doctors were using electromagnetism on a daily basis by the 1880s.
However, the emerging pharmaceutical industry needed doctors to conduct field
trials of their newly discovered drugs. Various legal and illegal means were
employed to discredit and dismantle clinical electromagnetism. Electromagnetc
treatment started to see a decline and eventually was officially banned by the
AMA before the start of World War II.
Despite the raids and charges of
"quackery" many people were benefited by the pioneering work of
these doctors of clinical electromagnetism. Dr. Albert Abrams
in the early 1900s found very specific frequencies that had predictable therapeutic
effects and is given the credit for the start of frequency specific
microcurrent. Today, the Abrams Frequencies are still in use and selected frequencies have been validated in modern research studies.
Homeopaths were very much drawn to the electrical nature of healing. Harold Van
Gelder and others were aware that their homeopathic remedies were actually
energetic frequencies that had a corrective effect in the body. They noted that
microcurrents, tiny amounts of electrical current, when passed through the body
produced a very rapid normalization of function. From the 1930s until about 15
years ago, microcurrent treatment in the USA
was carried out somewhat under cover and without fanfare.
With the recent discovery of old journals detailing the frequencies used by the
electromagnetic and microcurrent pioneers, interest in therapeutic
microcurrent treatment was rekindled. Dr. Carolyn McMakin, a chiropractor from Portland,
Oregon, brought microcurrent
technology up to modern day standards and in the mid-1990s began teaching
doctors and other licensed health care providers how to use frequency specific
microcurrent (FSM) for the treatment of many different conditions. Her machine,
made by Precision Micro, has FDA approval. Her courses are very intense and
emphasize both theory and practice. She serves as the Grande Dame of FSM in the
Dr. Raphael d'Angelo and his wife Nancy graduated in 2003 from the basic and
advanced courses in FSM as taught by Dr. Carolyn McMakin.
