1. What tips will help me get the most benefit from my Silver Pulser?

Create a Routine

Daily, consistent use is critical to getting the benefits of Micropulsing. To ensure consistent use, integrate Micropulsing into your existing daily routines. A daily walk, a long commute, while working, reading or watching TV in the evening—all are great opportunities to add Micropulsing to your day. Choose a time and place that fits your lifestyle to make it a regular part of your day.

Here's how one person maintains consistent use: "I use it in the morning every day. I keep it on my kitchen counter where I can see it. I put it on before I start making breakfast."

Even when your routine is interrupted by travel or something unexpected, doing what you can to continue your Micropulsing program will help to ensure you continue to get the most benefit from Micropulsing. The Silver Pulser is completely portable, making it easier to take it with you.

Keep it Handy

Once you've determined when to incorporate the Silver Pulser into your daily routine, keep your unit and accessories in an easily accessible spot—a place where you will see it and be reminded to Micropulse. For example, if you plan to Micropulse in the evening, keep the unit where your evening routine happens—if you read, keep the unit with your book or if you watch TV, keep it where you sit.

One frequent user says: "I keep it at my desk at work because that's where I'm seated for a long period of time. I use the Silver Pulser right after lunch."

Be Prepared

Being prepared means you minimize any disruptions to your Micropulsing routine ... by ensuring you are well–stocked with needed accessories: dropper bottle with water to wet the Cotton Sleeves, extra batteries, extra Cotton Sleeves and extra Rubber Probes. With the necessary accessories conveniently at hand, your Micropulsing routine can continue without interruption.

Self–Care

During the early days of use, if you feel you've "overdone" it, simply reduce the amount of time you Micropulse each day. Even if you need to take a couple days off – that is okay. When ready, once again start slowly, building up the time gradually to eventually Micropulse for at least two hours or more daily. Drinking plenty of water—especially both before and after each Micropulsing session is important. Drinking some freshly ozonated water gives added benefit.

A helpful part of the process of a wellness journey is acknowledging the triumphs as well as the bumps in the road. Keeping a journal of your experiences is a great way to track the overall benefits on your wellness journey. Looking back can be a great motivator when you see the changes that have come over time.

2. What can be done to reduce skin irritation on the wrist?

When using the Micropulsing on the wrists, the skin may become irritated. Over time, the irritation usually decreases. With longer periods of continuous use, skin irritation is more likely.

Alternate wrists each day. One day use the right wrist and the next day use the left wrist in order to allow the skin to heal.

If the pulse is feeling a bit "prickly", verify the Rubber Probes are fully conductive. Turn the intensity dial up to full. Hold the Rubber Probes so they are touching lengthwise. Hold one probe and rotate the second probe around it, making sure the two probes are always touching. Does the YELLOW Light flash brightly?

If the YELLOW Light comes on brightly, the Rubber Probes are fully conductive. If the YELLOW Light is not consistent or goes out or dims, the Rubber Probes need to be replaced. Rubber Probes that are not fully conductive may deliver a prickly feeling contributing to irritation.

Here are a few additional suggestions:

Wash wrists before applying the probes. Our skin has natural oils that can interact with the electricity which may result in a "stinging" sensation.
Wet the sleeves using purified water or with Ionic~Colloidal Silver.
If unable to feel the pulsing using only water, try a commercial saline solution for the eyes. This will be gentler on the skin than adding salt to the water.
A conductive gel can be added to the wet sleeves to reduce irritation.
Another option is to wrap a small square of paper towel around the probes instead of using the Cotton Sleeves. Keep the paper wet. We find it works well and a small square of paper may last for several applications.

Wash wrists well after each session and apply a healing gel or lotion such as aloe vera, vitamin E oil or MSM cream.
Drink enough water to keep the body well-hydrated. Your degree of hydration may affect your sensitivity.
Micropulse for shorter periods of time until the irritation disappears.
Turn down the intensity.

3. Why can't I feel the pulsing on my wrists?

Sometimes even experienced Micropulsers have days when they don't feel the pulsing – or it seems weaker than usual.

Each individual is unique, and there are a lot of variables in how each of us sets up the Silver Pulser for Micropulsing. There isn't one single reason why the strength of the pulse might feel weak.

Here are the most common causes:

Hydration
Make sure you are well–hydrated (this is probably the most common issue). We’ve found that customers who are dehydrated often have trouble feeling or detecting the pulse. Good hydration is essential to good health
Wrist Strap and Cotton Sleeves Positioning
Ensure the Cotton Sleeves are over the pulse points and that the Wrist Strap is holding the sleeves firmly against your skin. This will ensure good contact between the Cotton Sleeves and your wrist.
Salt
Although many people use plain old tap water, you can add several grains of salt to some water and dampen the sleeves with that. This will increase the conductivity.

Conductive Gel
Another alternative is to add Conductive Gel to the wet sleeves. This will also increase the conductivity and can be gentler than salt.
Cotton Sleeves
How wet are the Cotton Sleeves? If too wet, the moisture can pass between the two Cotton Sleeves diverting the current away from the pulse points, so you won't feel the microcurrents. Your wrist and Wrist Strap should be as dry as possible in–between the Cotton Sleeves. On the other hand if the Cotton Sleeves aren't wet enough, that's a problem too, as you won’t feel the microcurrents. Aim for a "happy medium".
Also, remember to periodically clean your Cotton Sleeves with a mild soap solution and rinse well with water. Over time, residue may build up on the cotton which may prevent you from feeling the pulse.
Rubber Probes
Remember to periodically clean your Rubber Probes inside and out, with a mild soap solution, followed by a good rinse of water. Over time, residue may build up on the Rubber Probes preventing you from feeling the pulse.
If you've been using the same pair of Rubber Probes for quite a while, it might be time to replace the Rubber Probes. Over time, the Rubber Probes will lose conductivity. You can test them by turning the intensity dial up to full. Hold the Rubber Probes so they are touching lengthwise. Hold one probe still and rotate the second probe around it, making sure the two probes are always touching. Does the YELLOW Light consistently flash brightly?
If the YELLOW Light comes on brightly, the Rubber Probes are fully conductive. If the YELLOW Light is not consistent or goes out or dims, the Rubber Probes need to be replaced.
Cotton Sleeves Alternatives
For some people, the thickness of the Cotton Sleeves can interfere with feeling the current. As an alternative, you can try one of the following:
Unbleached Paper Towel: Cut a small square of paper towel large enough to wrap around the Rubber Probe 2 or 3 times. Moisten prior to use.
Make your own Cotton Sleeve: Cut a small square of cotton material and wrap around the Rubber Probe with thread. Moisten prior to use.

Keep in mind - as long as the YELLOW Micropulsing Light is flashing and you feel the pulsing, everything should be working just fine.

How the pulse is felt is unique to each individual. And remember, the intensity dial does not need to be turned up all the way, nor does your hand need to twitch. You want to turn the intensity up to a level you can tolerate.


4. Can the Silver Pulser be used for more than 2 hours per day?

Yes. While typical use is 2 hours per day for at least 6–8 weeks, many choose to use the unit for longer periods each day. It can be used for more than 2 hours a day and many continue to use the unit for several months and even years.

When using the unit, whether for 2 hours or longer, it is important to increase the time gradually.

When discontinuing use of the unit, it is also advisable to gradually decrease the time as well.

5. Why were the silver and copper electrodes replaced with conductive rubber?

With the rising cost of silver, we knew we needed to find a more affordable solution for our Micropulsing Cords. The successful use of conductive rubber for the Bio Tuner Ear Clips encouraged us to try the same for Micropulsing. We found that conductive rubber works well, even with individuals who have sensitive skin. We are also discontinuing the copper electrodes as they sometimes create irritation. We have previously rejected using both stainless steel and conductive disposable pads, as they caused considerable irritation.


6. Are there any food or supplement restrictions while Micropulsing?

There are no food, vitamin, mineral or herbal supplement restrictions when Micropulsing. As a Wellness Tool, Micropulsing works best with a healthier lifestyle. For example, choosing to eat healthy, organic foods and minimizing or eliminating processed foods helps build health. Caution is advised if using potentially harmful substances such as recreational and prescription drugs, as it is not known if they will interact or if individual reactions may occur.


7. Are there any prescription drug restrictions while Micropulsing?

While no interactions have been reported to date, caution is advised if using prescription drugs, as it is not known if they will interact or if individual reactions may occur.

If you choose to try Micropulsing while using a prescription, consider pulsing prior to taking any prescriptions for the day. Start very slowly—10 minutes per day—to see if you have a reaction. From there, slowly work your way up. Please use common sense and if you are feeling hesitant at all, do not use the Micropulsing feature of the Silver Pulser.

8. What is the best way to use the Silver Pulser with the other SOTA units?

If looking to use the SOTA units together, begin with a single unit, gradually increasing the amount of time you use the unit day by day. All the while, you’re listening to your body, paying attention to how you’re feeling. If you are experiencing sluggishness, flu-like symptoms or other minor symptoms showing the body is moving itself towards wellness, reduce the time you are using the unit or depending on the experience, take a break for a few days before resuming. The keys are tuning in to your body and consistency of effort. Listen to your body, respect what it’s telling you, and use the feedback. Make adjustments if you need to. The point is not to rush.

When's the best time to add in an additional SOTA unit(s)? Planning for "start dates" at least one day apart or more is a good idea. That said, many people can start all the units the same day, while others find it works best for them to begin with one unit, and gradually add in the additional units over time. Again, create a schedule that works for you and your lifestyle.

Each individual is unique. Some may be able to start them all immediately – and others may need to take a more gentle approach. Either way, it’s okay. This isn’t a "one-size fits all" situation. A Wellness Lifestyle is not a race – it's a journey we choose for ourselves each day.


9. Is it okay to apply Micropulsing to animals?

Yes. While Micropulsing was designed for humans, it has been used with pets. The owners of SOTA, for example, have used Micropulsing on their dogs. The Microcurrents were applied for up to 30 minutes, and at a low setting. The probes were placed on the inside of each leg, where it was easiest to feel the pulse.

If you want to use the Micropulsing feature with your pet, we suggest doing a web search to find the pulse points for your furry friend. Please keep in mind, pets are much smaller than humans. They are known to respond more quickly and may be quite sensitive to the feeling of even gentle microcurrents, so best to proceed carefully. Do not use if it is obvious your pet is uncomfortable or distressed.


10. I've heard electricity can be harmful. Why is the Silver Pulser beneficial?

There is a difference between harmful and beneficial electric current. Microcurrent, pulsed magnetic field and frequency units are designed to use safe levels of electricity. The SOTA units are all designed to work with the body's natural electricity.

On the other hand, high voltage transformers and power lines delivering electricity to our homes to run our household appliances and the wireless technology used by cell phones can have harmful effects.

The SOTA units have all passed testing to gain CE certification. This is a European standard that indicates an electronic unit conforms to essential safety requirements to operate as a household consumer product.


11. How long should the battery last?

The SOTA Silver Pulser has been designed to ensure the maximum life of a battery. Battery life depends on how high you need the output and the type of battery used. We recommend a 9–Volt Alkaline battery as they usually last between 10–15 hours. Due to the advanced circuitry of the model SP7, battery life for this model is typically between 12–18 hours.

It is important to use 9–Volt Alkaline batteries. Batteries that are marked "Heavy Duty" or "Extra Duty" are designed for slow drain items and will not work as efficiently with the Silver Pulser.

Rechargeable 9–Volt batteries are also an option for powering both features of the Silver Pulser. Be careful though, not all rechargeable batteries are the same size. The only way to be certain the battery will fit in the enclosure properly is to try it with your Silver Pulser.

When making Ionic~Colloidal Silver it is not necessary to use a battery. Instead, the Wall Adaptor that comes with other SOTA units, or a purchased wall adaptor, can be used to make Ionic~Colloidal Silver. The wall adaptor should have the following specifications: an output from 6 to 12 Volts DC with a tip or center positive pin that supplies at least 500 mA (milliamperes) of current.


12. Where is the Silver Pulser manufactured?

The manufacturing of the SOTA Products is a global collaboration. The following countries participate in the making of the Silver Pulser (listed in alphabetical order): Canada, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan and the USA. Our units say Made in China because China is the last step in the assembly of the units.

We are grateful that the people in all of these countries help us to produce quality products at reasonable prices for our customers.
