DOUBLING HUMAN LIFESPAN WITH FREQUENCY-SPECIFIC PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS: Harman’s Mitochondrial Theory of Aging in Reverse
by Joshua Parker on Jun 09, 2016
For short let’s just call my theory moreATP. Think of it as the Mitochondrial Theory of Aging…in reverse. The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging is Denham Harman’s 1970’s sequel to his popular and generally accepted Free Radical Theory of Aging which first dates back to the 1950’s.
For evidence of Sleep on Command™ distinctive longevity effects; I offer Gizmo a 16 year old Yorkie-Maltese (16 y.o. 14 Sept ’10) that has been on EP for 7.5 years who still plays with her food like a puppy. You’ll never find a dog more motivated by food at any age.
The Holy Grail of ANY medical paradigm on this planet is a way to directly boost the integrity of the mitochondria and reduce oxidative stress. Search PubMed.gov or Google scholar for “mitochondrial dysfunction” (in quotes) adding any disease to that search and in 9 out of 10 (or more) disease states you will find relatively convincing evidence of coexisting mitochondrial dysfunction. Take a moment and try it with some diseases that touch your life and see that I am correct. What I hope you will recognize in the short pages below that there is a very simple method to support mitochondrial integrity and increase the amount of energy they produce.
MoreATP is based upon the preposition that if one were able to sustain the body longer on a fixed amount of oxygen (oxygen in a single deep-breath of air); then that body HAS GOT TO BE EXTRACTING MORE USABLE ENERGY (ATP) OUT OF THAT BREATH OF AIR. MoreATP proposes an upregulation (in efficiency) of the oxidative phosphorylation process; and this is the ONLY plausible explanation.
According to Wikipedia air inhaled into the lungs is approximately 20% O2 and just .04% CO2; while breath exhaled is approximately 15% oxygen and 4-5% CO2. For MoreATP to be correct these ratio’s would have to change with less O2 being exhaled. I have said many times that during these tests as they get longer and longer, the breath exhaled becomes smaller and smaller. Hmmmmm. To draw an analogy between mechanical engines and the engines of our cells (hundreds to thousands of trillions of mitochondria), if mileage goes up, emissions MUST go down. Reducing the amount of free-radical creation and increased (rather than decreasing) ATP production is the Mitochondrial Theory of Aging in REVERSE!
I believe based upon the feedback from hundreds of clients; that pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) between 5 Hz and 15 Hz (Hz= beats per second) are this aforementioned Holy Grail.
This will be explained with citations below.
Here I provide the first cohesive theory providing a method to radically extend healthy human lifespan (and your pets’) while simultaneously explaining precisely how pulsed electromagnetic fields utilizing frequencies between 5 Hz and 15 Hz have proven such well established healing and regenerative effects, as those represented in 4 decades of literature with absolutely no side effects beside transient headache with rTMS.
Within the the range between 5 Hz to 15 Hz, dozens and dozens of studies NEVER failed to show beneficial effects in excess of 80% of test subjects regardless if subject species were two or 4 legged. These effects have been repeatedly well documented over the course of 4+ decades and through volumes of peer reviewed literature.
This range of frequencies provide roughly the same effect regardless of whether the stimulation is magnetic or electric in nature. However this paper will deal with pulsed electromagnetics as they are easier to control and since electric currents limit effectiveness by following the path of least resistance, such that homogeneous and systemic electrical stimulation is nearly impossible.
The moreATP proposition remains cohesive at frequencies as low as 2 Hz and as high as 20 Hz, regardless of tissue type (even plants), and particularly where tissue is damaged or debilitated and suffering underlying mitochondrial dysfunction; which is the rule rather than exception.
By default, this paper also provides a simple explanation for much of the documented effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as it is generally applied at under 20 Hz. It also provides a very simple explanation why stimulation at these frequencies provide such stunning effects overall regardless of the tissue type.

The FDA has refused approvals for novel uses of pulsed electromagnetic fields hiding behind the heretofore vague explanations given for their efficacy. For instance “raising cell membrane potential”. This paper rectifies the dilemma of not being able to explain to the FDA in the smallest detail (at the mitochondrial level) how PEMF stimulation between 1 Hz and 20 Hz affect the cell and raises this membrane potential. This should open the door to many new approvals by FDA and similar agencies worldwide.
I’ve chosen the name moreATP because the effects of PEMF at this frequency range are simply due to excess production of organic ATP; synthesized naturally in the cell mitochondria via the cell respiration process albeit at more efficient levels.
This is not theory at all, but applied or evidence based science as data has been collected on hundreds of clients showing vast improvements in oxygen metabolism within 7 days. We test oxygen metabolism through a very low-tech, yet accurate and objective means called the resting-breath-hold (RBH) test. Free divers call it the static breath hold. Very simply, it is how long you can hold your breath at rest;….providing a very reliable objective method to measure oxygen consumption rates. Draw oxygen from the blood slower, saturated blood oxygen goes up. We’ve seen it change 3% over 3 days in a 68 year old woman and 5% in a 55 year old distance runner living at 6000 feet altitude. To hold your breath longer at rest, means your mitochondria are burning the O2 contained in that breath more efficiently than it had previously. As the breath hold goes up, cellular energy is going up in (at least) linear fashion. One could arguably attain the same through meditation or yoga; albeit with infinitely more effort as this takes none.
Longer breath hold times (with no physical conditioning) very simply requires oxygen to be burned more efficiently, thus sustaining the body for longer periods of time on the same volume of air. More efficient oxygen consumption subsequently requires the respiration process to produce less reactive oxygen species. Much like tuning an automobile, mileage and horsepower go up – emissions go down; the usable lifetime of the engine extended.
Very simply, exposure to 10 Hz (or close enough; between 5 and 15 Hz) has an immediate and direct effect on the mitochondria as demonstrated in the following studies. While 5 Hz and 15 Hz have been found to produce DOUBLE the rates of tissue regeneration, 10 Hz produces tissue regeneration at FOUR times baseline. Particularly due to the turbocharging of the energy production system which appears to peak precisely at 10 Hz in a bell shaped curve. At power frequency (50-60 Hz) and higher, you are crippling your mitochondria, below 1 Hz and you do the same. At 20 Hz or more, stress hormones are produced so its good not to use higher frequency therapy for prolonged periods. Our device operates at 14.1 Hz and below but our key frequency has always been 9.6 Hz for reason’s explained below.
In 1989 David Hood found chronic (30+ days) 10 Hz stimulation TRIPLED two CRITICAL enzymes used during final stages of cell respiration. Citrate-synthase the regulator of the Krebs cycle and cytochrome-c-oxidase. which is critical in the electron transport chain. Hood concluded this was due to similarly increased mitochondrial ribonucleic acid (mtRNA). Hood’s finding is perfectly consistent with our finding of improved oxygen use in every one of our satisfied clients. Testing systemic oxygen consumption via RBH test since 2005 we have found routine improvements 94% of our clients and in some in as little as 2-3 days.
As cell’s metabolize oxygen more efficiently, they draw oxygen from blood slower, producing more energy and less waste from every breath; thus you are able to hold your breath up to 2 x longer after several years of use. 20-30% in a few short weeks. Finely tuned athletes at peak performance and 100% blood oxygen levels already, increase RBH routinely by 20% within a month or two. These percentage effects are amplified under load. For instance while two US swimmers were able to increase their RBH by 20% they increased the distance they could swim underwater by 50%! We’re talking about world class, genetically superior athletes. One of our clients currently holds one of two world records he set within the last year. Two years ago went undefeated at 3 distances in 9 cities. 27 Gold medals out of 27 races; and he’s retirement age. He almost retired due to lost performance after the season that preceded his use of EP.
In 2003 NASA-Goodwin found 10 Hz square wave stimulation caused neural tissue regeneration @ 4x baseline, w/ better 3-D orientation; cell DNA signature turned – OFF – 120+ sets of maturation genes and turned – ON – 120+ sets of developmental genes. Over 100 sets of nucleic DNA reverted from maturation to developmental. NASA didn’t dig deep enough to explain why cell regeneration QUADRUPLED under 10 Hz pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) or why the genetic effects occurred ONLY at 10 Hz pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF). However moreATP explains very well based upon the work of David Hood and the efficient demonstration by James Tong below.
NASA-Goodwin also found something completely unexpected. 10 Hz and 10 Hz only turned 120+ maturation genes -OFF- and switched 120+ developmental genes -ON- ! This effect can only be due to such immense amounts of energy being generated by the cell. Very plainly the cell is detoxified with all this extra energy and literally “tricked” into believing it is young again. It is not outside the realm of possibility that it will be found genetic and chromosomal repair, and lengthening of telomere is accomplished also. The longevity effect on the human organism is staggering.
MoreATP would predict that the NASA study above showed a majority of their findings due to mitochondrial robustness that 10 Hz stimulation provided. Energy output at levels able to support regeneration at 4 times baseline. Simultaneously, cells that were mature were literally “tricked” into believing they are younger because the power being generated within; and subsequently upregulation of ion transport and cell detoxification, and downregulation of ROS production. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) may have been repaired through some unidentified mechanism or due to extraordinary levels of energy in the cell, or detoxification of the cell protoplasm, or due plainly to the mitochochondrion itself being detoxified, or due to ROS production being near NULL, or more than likely a combination of all.
In 2007 James Tong DOUBLED mitochondrial density at the nerve synapse but TRIPLED nerve synapse energy utilizing 10 Hz stimulation. These synergistic changes took only 5 minutes to manifest. It is prudent to consider Tong fist stimulated at 1/2 Hz for just two minutes and both mitochondrial density and nerve junction energy parameters fell by 20%. However within 5 minutes at 10 Hz both measurements soared. Compare mitochondrial DENSITY of unstimulated mitochondria (white circles) w/ 10 Hz stimulated mitochondria (black circles); compare TOTAL ENERGY at synapse junction unstimulated (white circles) w/ 10 Hz stimulated (black circles). Mitochondrial density change = 2x+ and Synapse Energy change = 3x+ so each mitochondria increased its energy production by 50% within 5 minutes. Also, keep in mind that Hood’s samples took 30 days stimulation to peak their enzyme production.
We have relied upon 9.6 Hz in our Sleep on Command™ pulsed-magnetic sleep-machine since 2001 because it is naturally occurring and explains very well why 10 Hz stimulation works the way it does. Bob Beck discovered this 9.6 Hz resonation by driving metal stakes deep into the earth way back in the 1970’s. 9.6 Hz resonates from the core of mother Earth and we find it particularly useful to help promote deep sleep through the process known as ENTRAINMENT. It produces remarkable athletic performance enhancement as well. We believe 9.6 is the magic number, not 10.
Quite simply while our neurological system is known to be “paced” by the Schumann waves it is simply clear that the mitochondria are tuned by the Earth’s core resonation at or around 9.6 Hz; particularly while lying horizontal and preferably when sleeping in contact with the ground. This is the primary reason camping is known to produce such remarkable sleep and why earthing technologies are gaining popularity. EarthPulse™ is earthing on steroids!
Gizmo the 15 3/4 year old Yorkie-Maltese is one of my EarthPulse™ longevity experiments. I just posted Gizmo’s Summer 2010 video clip where she’s 110 human years old and moves as fast and quick as a 5 year old dog. Her mind state is definitely puppy-like. She’s now on the device for exactly 1/2 her lifetime. During the day she spends hours in her favorite perch (on the top of the couch arm-rest) where she sleeps for hours (1/2 inch above the 200 G inductor at 9.6 Hz) plus nighttime exposure at under 1 Gauss with the inductor under her master’s mattress. She still stalks her food like a puppy; and if you turn up the volume in the 8 second video #2, you’ll hear her digging her nails into the carpet. No arthritis or joint pain in her whatsoever. Please take the time to check out some of the other life changing videos while at our YouTube channel.
In 2001 at 43 years old I built my first device for a fellow with Parkinson’s disease. I discovered the sleep effect the very first night it was completed. I quickly found that regular nighttime use of the EarthPulse™ DC pulsed electromagnetic fields at 9.6 Hz quickly and reliably enhanced sleep and daytime mental & physical performance. Recovery even from old sports injuries was phenomenal.
Within weeks providing strength and stamina gains rivaling steroids. I found my left rotator cuff (suffered 22 dislocations during 14 years 1986-2001) became completely resolved in 3 months. Previously I all but quit surfing in 1999 as i could barely paddle and residual sharp pain for 3 days was unbearable; by 2002 I was barely able to swing nor grip a golf club due to shoulder, and numbness and weakness in the cooresponding left hand. I stayed in shape with a bowflex and worked the bad shoulder constantly with low resistance and high reps. Lots of joint formula. Within days of my first prototype at 9.6 Hz during the nighttime, the numbness in my fingertips was resolved, ringing dull pain resolved in 3 weeks; and by month 3 for the most part the shoulder was back to normal. No more popping, grinding, snapping sounds. 9 years later, my grip strength is comparable to my right-hand. I can surf 3-5 hours per day for 4-5 days in succession with no pain or sunburn (3 day limit in my 20’s); hit 400 golf balls at the range or walk 36 holes of golf. I smoke a pack of natural tobacco non filtered cigarettes per day (sometimes more), and don’t surf or play golf nearly as much as I’d like to. My SAO2 is 99%, I can hold my breath for 2:30 seconds, swim 50 meters under water (diving off one end) and mostly I’m chained to this desk much of the time. EarthPulse™ makes aging a cake-walk. Wish I felt this good at 26 before I blew my shoulder out. For the record it is advisable to consume a good quality joint supplement during these rehabilitative connective tissue goals as regenerating these tissues need their constituate nutritional / structural for maximum effect (I personally recommend GLC for joints and BoneUp for bone). I took joint formulas since 1991 but still my shoulder eventually failed (continued until May 2003 and now used in small maintenance doses only); my right ankle and knee that where problems almost every morning completely resolved. I used to have to “pop” my right knee several times per day. Strength and stamina gains are easily explained by my moreATP proposition, as are recovery / regeneration effects. So are reported elevation of hormone levels by clients who have checked them (mitochondria reside in your endocrine tissues as well).
It took 7 full years for my RBH to double with no effort, practice or aerobic physical conditioning but for sporadic surfing and 2-3 rounds of golf per week. It is my propositon that 9.6 Hz every night could have resulted in taking 7 full years for a complete turnover of cells in the body, that older cells had revived and lingered for years. Based upon that fact I summize a doubling of lifespan with potential to reach 200 years or more. The longevity possibilites are staggering; especially if you combine 9.6 Hz while sleeping with other known therapies and supplement programs.
These pulsed magnetic field therapy bibliographies contain several hundred peer reviewed pulsed electromagnetic therapy study abstracts spanning nearly 6 decades, organized by disorder, most linked directly to the U.S. National Institutes of Health & National Libraries of Medicine. You will notice many, if not most of these pulsed electro-magnetic therapy studies use frequencies under 20 Hz.
Heretofor, evidence offered in support of various biological effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) has differed widely. The theoretical proposition moreATP, cohesively explains -very simply- why pulsed electromagnetic therapy at 10 Hz (+ or – 5 Hz) works as well as it does. 10 Hz incontrovertably “the sweet-spot” producing twice the effect of either 5 or 15 hz. Untll now there has been no cohesive way to explain the effects of PEMF or rTMS. Based on MoreATP, it would be advisable for more rTMS research be conducted at 10 Hz rather than higher, or very low in the 1 Hz range (as seems to be the majority of studies).
Robert O. Becker MD proved optimum cellular repair at stimulation periods 8 hours – ON – / 8 hours – OFF -; using minute, microampere DC electric current. His mouth to my ears… “The cell can only absorb so much energy at a time and create only so much change over 24 hours. Your 8 hours during the nighttime is the next best thing.” This being the classic example of ACE pathway, and one that the FDA finds inadequate enough to HIDE behind, even in the case of fresh fracture healing at 200% – 300% faster rate, spinal cord repair or stroke rehabilitation. Click here to see a synopsis of Robert O. Becker‘s latest work.
At the time I had been unable to discuss mitochondrial effects with Bob as I hadn’t been aware of the Hood or NASA research until late 2005; and although feeling better “winded” I had not noticed my RBH increase as I had not checked it for some years.
Robert Becker was of the DC current mindset so most of our discussions we’re of DC “microcurrents” and the energy transfer to the cells provided, with or without conductive silver nylon fabrics; the electrochemical treatment of cancer tumors using silver electrodes (rather than tungsten as in the Nordenstrom works); and of course EarthPulse™ PEMF entrainment for sleep. We did discuss the incrontravertable 10 Hz pattern in the peer reviewed research, the fact his long time friend (and one time student) Andrew Marino, PhD had done research with 10 Hz and the discovery of the 9.6 Hz “resonation” discovered by Bob C. Beck.
This link to Becker & Marino’s Electromagnetism and Life (it takes a bit of time for the pdf to load so be patient) is probably the most well documented essay in existence on the detrimental effects of power and microwave telecommunications frequencies as well as some of the earlier works using electric and magnetic stimulation techniques. Far, far ahead of their time, but very relevant today.

Check this paper particularly the comment by Aubrie de Grey about reduced ROS production and its affect on cell longevity. See this study by YH Wei et al. and then go back to the 1998 David Hood study where enzyme activity responsible for oxygen molecule metabolism increased 3 fold (by 10 hrs per day for 35 days stimulation).
In summary moreATP equates to increase in organically produced ATP; thereby increased cell membrane potential; increased nerve synapse potential; improved ion transport; reduced ROS production; improved ROS neutralization; improved cell detoxification; reduced cell inflammation; thereby synergistically enhancing cell survival and longevity at the mitochondrial (potentially mtDNA) level.
The Resting-Breath-Hold (RBH) test proves significant increases in 94% of our new clients, though it would probably be higher under controlled and supervised studies; as many of the returns (currently just 4 3/4% since January ’10) may never have taken the opportunity to measure it. These RBH increases and subsequently improved levels of physical and mental performance are indisputable evidence that this theoretical proposition is partially if not completely supported
