According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi cause more than 2.8 million infections and 35,000 deaths in the United States each year. That means, on average, someone in the United States gets an antibiotic-resistant infection every 11 seconds, and every 15 minutes someone dies. (1)
As reported by “Science Daily” on May 17th 2019 researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have found a way to fight bacterial infections using electricity. Their findings were published in the journal “Annals of Surgery.” (2) The discovery has the potential to significantly change the way physicians treat patients with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
This discovery is considered a novel approach but this is not the first time that electricity has been used to combat bacterial infections. Long ago back in 1910, Samuel Howard Monell MD author of “High-Frequency Electric Currents in Medicine and Dentistry” used high-frequency electric currents to treat infections. As stated by Dr. Monell “Among the germ factions in which it has been tested and shown excellent results as a curative agent are; syphilis, tetanus, tuberculosis, infections by staphylococcus, streptococcus, typhoid bacillus, pneumococcus, and gonococcus.” (3)
High frequency also known as the Violet Ray is an electrotherapy medical appliance that emits high-frequency electricity and light. The basic construction of the Violet Ray was invented by Nikola Tesla in the late 1800s.
According to William McGarry MD, the Violet Ray was very common in the early 1900s -and easily obtained from electrical and drug supply houses Nationwide–but today, since the rise in pharmaceutical medicine, it is far less common. Dr. McGarry said, “It [The Violet Ray] was once a favorite among Osteopathic physicians to control infection without the use of antibiotics.” (4)
With antibiotic-resistant bacteria on the rise, researchers should consider revisiting the use of the Violet Ray for treating infections. If proven to be effective, the Violet Ray has the potential to be a simple, effective, and inexpensive way to treat infections without side effects. Who knows, researchers may find that the Violet Ray works better and is more cost-effective than the newer methods of using electricity to fight infections.
Sometimes we have to look back to the past in order to look forward to the future.
This article is not endorsing any treatment with the Violet Ray or any other electrical appliance.
There are contraindications for using the Violet Ray such as:
1. The Violet Ray should not be used if you have a pacemaker, electronic hearing implant, insulin pump, or any other metal implants.
2. The Violet Ray should not be used with jewelry or metal pins.
3. The Violet Ray should not be used over the heart and if you have heart disease or other heart disorders the Violet Ray should only be used on the back.
4. The Violet Ray should not be used if you have consumed alcohol.
5. The Violet Ray should not be used if you are pregnant.
If you are planning to use any electrical device you should consult with a qualified medical professional.

Natural medicine is a topic that Dr. Herbert is very interested in. Including acupuncture, chiropractic, nutritional supplements, do-in, medical Qigong, reiki, and more. Additionally, he is interested in bioenergy or chi simulation appliances like the Cayce wet cell, the TDP infrared lamp, and the Qigong infrasound machine.
