A1- Are they (zappers) safe? 
They had been used on 8 month old babies and the elderly with no problems. They had been used safely by tens-
of-thousands of people all over the world with all types of major and minor illnesses for years.  You may feel worse
at the start as the parasites die off, but this is usually gone within ten days.  The Zapper isn't likely to hurt you,
but everybody is different and some people react differently than others.  However, nothing is perfectly safe, so
please, use common sense : It’s up to you to judge what is happening in your own body.
Do not use the Zapper if you are pregnant or use a heart pacemaker.

A2- And side effects?
Most of them are related with elimination : Extensive zapping can kill beneficial bacteria in the intestine causing
intestinal irregularity.  Intestinal regularity can be restored by eating yogurt and drinking buttermilk. Some users
have reported problems with skin rash on the hands or arms. Some others who use wrist straps have reported
skin burns.

A3- What should I expect after a first zapping?
Some individuals will go through a phase of tiredness. Others experience slight diarrhea. These conditions should
not last long (a day or so, rarely more) unless you overdo zapping.  Parasites that have died in the body leave
debris that must be removed and the body may use a lot of energy doing this. Drink lots of good water and get
plenty of rest, if needed.

A4- Is only one treatment sufficient?
No. When you spent years to clog you, only one treatment of 21mn will only tell you if a Zapper is appropriate to
you. A repeated use from 1 to 3 times per day during one to three months is often necessary.

A5- How Frequently should I Zap?
The frequency and amount of zapping depends on the individual, his condition, and the type and extent of illness
being treated. Starting out, most users zap 1 or 2 sessions a day. This is normal for the first 3 to 5 days and up to
45 days. Afterward, users may zap from once a day to a couple of times per week. Once parasites have been
reduced or eliminated, the need to zap is reduced.

A6- How Long should each zapping session last?
Classic zapping is for 7 minutes with a 20 minute resting stage in between. This is repeated 3 times for each
session. In heavy cases, some individuals choose to zap continuously for a full hour. There is probably no harm in
this, but it is likely to reduce your natural intestinal inhabitants. It is important to drink buttermilk and/or eat yogurt
to replenish this.

A7- Which is the maximum duration of a treatment?
What is the maximum ability of your body to get rid of all your parasites?  Every one of us reacts differently to the
duration of a session, and have a “personal maximum” at that moment.  Again, it’s up to you to judge what is
happening in your own body and to decide what is the maximum duration FOR YOU.
For reference only : I already has been tired for a full day after a 7-20 session, and sometimes this still almost
happens with 28-20 or continuous sessions .  I already have been zapping for 2x 4h in a row (I don’t zap when
sleeping), without any wrong feeling.  Again, a zapper is not a toy.  Use caution and good sense.

A8- Why should I use salt water and paper towels?
There is no obligation.  The saline solution reduces the resistance of the skin surface and allows a stronger signal
to reach your parasites. The paper towels help keep the copper off of your skin and holds moisture. They are also
cheap and disposable.  Tap water will do too if your skin is sensitive, by decreasing the current.  

A9- How can I make the saline solution?
Sea salt is preferred by some.  Table salt is good enough (its role is to facilitate electric conduction). Mix well one
teaspoon with a glass of water. Moist paper towels in this solution. Wrap around the copper paddles.  If you are
using extended zapping, check time to time for a moisten paper towel.

A10- Why you don't like wrist bands? 
Wrist cuffs where designed originally (and still are made) to eliminate static electricity made by the human body, on
electronic workers.  They are built to conduct a continuous stream of electricity at very, very low current (a  few
micro-amps).  That’s why very often they have in their path a 1.0++MW resistor. 
On the other hand, zappers deliver (to be efficient) 2 to 7mA peak.  Too much for these wrist cuffs, even if the
1.0MW resistor is removed : They have a too small contact area and inadequate contact pressure. This means
that, everything being equal, wrist cuffs will allow only about 25% of the current allowed by copper handholds.
Their only advantage is an illusory convenience.
Will you buy a high quality $3000 HiFi sound system with pillar speakers?  Don’t you feel a mismatch somewhere?
Tubular Copper handholds with wet paper towel are, for the moment, the best all around, all purpose reusable
electrodes to plug into a zapper.

A11- How can I get the most out of my Zapper?
= Use your zapper regularly after initial parasite treatment. A couple of times a week is usually enough. This
should prevent occurrence of problems.
= Always drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after zapping.
= Get plenty of rest after zapping, if needed. Rest gives your body time to remove unwanted byproducts and to
clean itself.
= It is recommended to eat some yogurt or drink buttermilk soon after zapping.
= Many users report even better results with handholds placed under foot or around west band.
For reference only : I zap once a week, sometimes twice, using Frq_FV and Prg_28-20, handholds moist with
salted water and placed each side of my west band.  This permits me to be free for other activities.

A12- Is the Clark’s zapper like a Rife device or Bob Beck blood purifier?
Clark’s zapper sends pulsed DC only and is quite independent of frequency.
Rife devices work mainly on MOR (Mortal Oscillatory Rate), very precise frequencies killing a family of pathogen
microbes or viruses. They are not a Clark’s zapper
Bob Beck device delivers an alternative voltage around 50Vptp at a frequency of around 4Hz. It is not a Clark’s

A13- What are the most common questions you receive?
The 3 most common questions are :
1_ What is the best zapper?
A_ The one you have handily, in working order, when you need-it!
What is the best frequency for a zapper?
A_ Without knowing what is your specific target : From 10Hz to 500000Hz, ANY FREQUENCY WILL DO.
30kHz and 10kHz and 2.5kHz and FV recommended.
Why do you say a zapper is good, when I feel so bad after using it?
A_ Stop exaggerating, little blue Smurff!! (well, I say-it on a very polite way, but the meaning is there!)
"A zapper is not a toy!  Lessens to your body saying : go slowly... I'm in a hurry!"
Elimination problems are real.  Follow your capacity to eliminate all these unwanted passengers, with some
tolerable comfort.

A14- One of the handles “tickles”
Passage of current through the skin can produce this effect on sensitive skins, or when the density of the current
is too important, due to a reduced surface of contact. Ensure that your paper towel is well moistened. The majority
of people deferring this “problem” forget about-it quickly.

A15- Why are you against an AC adapter to get rid of batteries?
Using an AC adapter or AC power supply has many technical advantages, being independent of battery use and
giving a constant voltage supply among other advantages.  Most of my electronic designs were built with an
oversized AC power supply.  They where not intended for a direct contact of their circuits with human body. 
25 years in electronic and electricity field have removed my initial candid confidence on 100% guaranteed, safety
devices.  It happened all at once, when a “fully safe, for sure” 600VAC circuit illuminated my look with a zapping
experience, before it’s time (yes, I survived (:-)). 
Even approved UL and CSA devices can (and eventually will) fail.  Any industrial electrician will confirm this
For these reasons, I prefer to relay on CMOS integrated circuits for a very low electric consumption, on a booster-
regulator for a constant voltage supply, and on a battery.  One session of 7-20 cost less than $0.01 on the
battery, a very low price to pay, to be SAFE
If, on the use and purpose of a zapper, having to replace time to time a battery is a major concern, we have a
(mental) priority problem hard to zap.

So, why do I discard anything else but battery use on zappers? 
Simply a question of LOVE.  I love zapper experimenters, and try hard to avoid at all cost, any “shocking”
experience. Period.

A16- At the end of the treatment I remain with a light redness in the zone of contact with the handles.
The passage of the D.C. current can irritate the skin by a phenomenon of electrolysis. This side effect is rare with
the tiny current implied, but possible with long active periods (20mn and more). The simplest way to circumvent
this disadvantage consists in changing time to time, handholds of place.  Please, don’t sleep using a zapper.

A17- Which is the best frequency?  Again?! : Any!
The operational frequencies for a zapper were established by Dr Clark between 10Hz and 500.000Hz,
Around 30kHz give good results, but “specialists” had calculated that this frequency circulates mainly on surface
and “do not penetrate” far enough, because of a “skin effect” (we talk here of the “Kelvin effect”, affecting usually
very high frequency carriers and high current transport lines) .
Be cautious with theoretical calculations : According to aeronautic engineers, the bumblebee, this big oaf with the
hairy and striped paunch, cannot fly (!?!)
The “in” frequency is now lower that the initial 30kHz (2.5kHz is “ìn”).  A manufacturer had praised the merits of
2kHz, and another the merits of 15Hz.  All these frequencies have their followers, and if the fashion is at lower
frequencies, none stands up in a dominant way, otherwise that for publicity purposes.
In practice, the length of active time and regularity of sessions are more important than frequency
(most of the time).
Here are some uses having a prevalent frequency:
Better transfer of energy : approximately 30kHz (3kHz to 60kHz OK)
Homeography : Approximately 30kHz (and more)
Zappicator : 1000Hz for a maximum of effectiveness. (30kHz OK)
As conceived by Dr Clark, there is no prevalent specific frequency, but…  
Do not neglect your personal beliefs in the choice of your favorite frequency : The placebo effect is active 30%
of the time and is a pejorative definition of the heath power of the human body, when related to your personal
Then, ultimately, experiment, observe and act.
Note: My personal preferences go, for now (2007), with the 30kHz, for its optimum transfer of energy, with the
10kHz, for my beliefs in its virtues of reinforcement of health, and to the FV sweep frequency of 4 to 16kHz (M.Zap2
and 3) for its (hypothetical) capacity of hitting a maximum of parasites.

A18- By measuring the exit of your Zapper, I obtain only 5V.
The only good way of measuring the exit of a zapper is to use an oscilloscope.
If you measure with a voltmeter, you will measure the average voltage (50% @ +10.5V and 50% @ +0.5V = 5.25V)
and this, if your voltmeter, calibrated for sinusoidal 60Hz, reacts well to “high” frequencies like 30kHz.  Measuring
RMS output current is even more touchy at these frequencies.

A19- Which type of battery do you recommend?
The alkaline batteries have a capacity about 1.5 to 2 times higher than SHD (Super Heavy Duty) batteries, in a low
current use like ours.  Compare their respective price and make a choice.
Pay attention at the rechargeable batteries :  In small characters, certain manufacturers indicates that your “9V
battery” only gives you 7.4V, and their capacity is surprisingly low.
If the use is intensive and the price of your health of no importance, the alkaline batteries last longer. If the use is
occasional, a SHD battery is sufficient.  M.Zap3 can give up to 100+ cycles of 7-20 with one 9V SHD battery.
We provide a SHD battery so you can test your zapper immediately (Several manufacturers do not provide a
battery, to reduce their selling price). Thereafter, you will install the kind of battery which is appropriate to you

A20- Many manufacturers praise the power of their Zapper, or the fact that their exit doesn’t “distort.
Behind this publicity is the American flag “BIGGER IS BETTER”.  This can be true as long as we remain in a well-
known field, which needs really more.  For example, Bigger is Better, applied to the automobile field, put on its
knees the powerful American Car Manufacturers.
In the field of Zappers, with a general public use in mind, only good safe results and not what is “bigger” will
I believe that there is the quantity of energy to final destination who really counts, and not the force with which
this energy is injected (or forced) into our system.
Increasing the effectiveness by increasing the voltage led to an unpleasant use, and coul lead to unsafe voltages. 
Increasing the effectiveness by reducing the internal resistance of the zapper (the output doesn’t distort) do the
same as increasing voltage, and removes the function of the internal resistor/safety to the maximum current
In order to remain on the safe side, in the use of electricity, I recommend a safe limit of 5 to 7mA, for a general
public use.  With a good control of current (CCS), this limit could be pushed to 8mA peak.
A constant power supply of 11V, with the possibility of lengthening active time, seems to me, for the moment, more
than sufficient.
Just right, no more.

A21- Can a zapper remove pain?
Scientifically speaking, there is no tangible proof on this fact. Let us add that until very recently, fibromyalgy
(generalized diffused pain) was regarded as an imaginary disease, because there was no scientific proof neither.
The pain is very, very subjective, and yet quite real.
There is clinical evidence that TENS devices (Frequency Generators delivering 100V+ with a very weak current)
block the pain.  And why not for the signal emitted by a Frequency Generator named “Zapper”?
Often the pain is caused by inflammation. Inflammation is maintained by parasites.  Then, if we admit that the main
goal of zappers is to get rid of parasites…

A22- The handholds becomes dull. Does that affect the effectiveness of Zapper?
Not at all. Copper reacts with the moisture in the paper towels, especially if those are soaked with salty water.
Note : I recommend to change paper towels on every session, or as soon as the paper takes a greenish color
(copper chloride - toxic). But conduction remains excellent. The paddles may be cleaned and shined with steel
wool.  Rinse and dry well.  Do not put any coating of protection, that would isolate the handholds.

A23- I was surprised that a 9V battery does not deliver 9V. Can you work out?
Without going into technical details, let us separate “9V battery” in its 2 components :
9V is just its name, and doesn’t indicate what or “how” the “named” does.
Battery implies “several”. There are 6 chemical cells delivering each 1.5V initially (6x 1.5V=9V, Here is it’s name!).
These cells decrease the available voltage during their useful life. The manufacturer, in its specs, defines a battery
as “useful” as long as its voltage remains above 0.8V by cell, which makes 0.8Vx6= 4.8V for a battery of “9V” !!
80% of the serviceable life of a 9V battery are in-between 6.5 and 8.8V, and we must take in account this spec.
For this reason I advocate the use of a booster and voltage regulator, enabling you to use your Zapper with an
effective constant output, and this, until the end of your battery life.

For reasons of technical complication and selling price, almost the totality of Zapper currently on the market
(2006) are connected directly on a 9V battery, without booster or regulator, leaving the weariness of the
battery drive the efficiency of their zappers.

A24- Effect of electricity in a living human body
It is the Quantity of Electricity which conditions the effect produced by the electrical current in the human body.

This Quantity depends on the current which circulates there and the duration.
    Q (quantity) = I (current) x T (time)

The current depends on the voltage applied AND the resistance of the load (here, a living human body):
   I (current) = U (voltage)/R (resistance),
    or with a capacitive load and Frequency involved :  I = U.(2Pi.Freq.Cap.)

The resistance of the human body varies according to various parameters:
=   Tiredness, health, age of the person;
=   The hygrometrical (moisten or dry) state of the skin at the points of contact;
=    The quality of the skin;
=    The area of contact;
=    The voltage applied between the points of contacts.

The resistance of the human body varies from a few hundreds of kohms in low DC voltage, to less than 200 ohms
in the case of electrocution by a flash of lightening.

A document indicates a resistivity of the blood of 200 ohms.cm.

On the level of perception, we retain:
0,5 to 1mA : Threshold of feeling according to the state of the skin
8 to 10mA : Shock to the point of contact, brutal reaction
10 to 20mA : Electric shock + Contraction of the muscles; durable crispation
Beyond 20mA : Mortal risk proportional to the current.

The human organism reacts to the electrical current like a variable resistive load and a variable capacitive load. 
The inductive effect is practically non-existent.

Q24- Effect of electricity in a
living human body

Certain Internet sites associate zapper and serious illness.
It is not our role to make such assertions. 

Illness does not interest us.

We leave it to the experts of the unhealthy states.
We are only interested to feel better, which is highly subjective, and to get rid of as much “invaders” who drain our resources, as possible.

These invaders, who live at our expense, we name them under the generic name of “parasites”.

We experience the influence of the zapper effect
on these parasites, on a hypothetical and empirical basis, which have nothing to do with medical or scientific rules.
