We'll, it's been almost 8 years since I purchased my original Galvanic stimulator. It finally died. Apparently there are 2 round things with copper coils around each one. Roughly 3 years ago one broke off inside, yet didn't affect the unit. The other day the other one broke off. I believe I might be able to solder the 2 wire leads that extend from the coil back to the board.
The really good news is that I was smart and purchased a backup unit for the same price as the original a couple of years ago. Now I'm back in business. My 7 year cost is now at $300. If this one lasts at least that long I'll be ok. Considering the fact that I might live another 10 years and that's highly unlikely. I still really think it was worth the investment switching to pulsed current. I've been doing ionto since June of 2005.
I did discover as I suspected that major body stress overrides the ionto. I was able to confirm this by figuring out a dosage of PHENIBUT on a daily basis that would suppress my central nervous system making ionto work efficiently. HH is a sympathetic nervous system disorder. You see, since the age of 6 my body has been in fight and flight. That's 53 years ago. I've reached the point where my body is no longer recovering. It's totally worn out. Each time my body goes into overdrive, which is almost daily, I have extreme pain. It's getting worse week by week. This mean blood pressure continues to rise, along with other damage. Doctors have no clue as to what or how much damage the flight and flight response causes, nor will they listen. It's maddening. Nobody will even make the HH connection to all of this. Standard blood tests say that I'm normal, yet I'm at the point where I can't do anything. I'm mostly laying in bed except when I need to go to doctor appointments, get food etc.
A friend of mine who has a rare autoimmune disorder lent me a copy of this book written by her doctor; Dr. Michael Jacobs MD PHD Internal Medicine. "Demystifying Medicine" 2010.
Bingo! Dr Jacobs described everything so perfectly, and verified that of which I figured out. The catch is, no mention of HH because he probably was not aware of it. He practices here in Las Vegas. I'll need to see if he takes my insurance. The downside of all of this is there really isn't a cure (for HH or anything to do with a defective nervous system not being caused by a particular organ modality) and since my body is so worn out both inside and out... it just doesn't matter anymore. Quality of my life has gone to sh*t. The war on opioids or anything scheduled is basically a war on chronic pain patients. Nobody cares if you suffer, and many will be committing suicide. Statistically, it's very misleading and it's not the pain patients causing the epidemic. Besides, the war on opioids sounds good politically, yet is really not based on facts. If you do your research, you'll understand it all a little better.
My advice is don't get sick, no car wrecks or accidents of any kind. Avoid surgeries etc. I know... useless advice. Hopefully you all live healthfully and shead your anxiety issues. HH is a piece of cake in comparison to major chronic pain says the man who has experienced all of it.
Back to HH. The key is to suppress your central nervous system. The downside with that is well... possible death. Please, don't take anything illegally, that's not the answer. Herbal can possibly help. Everything depends on your particular body. The stress we get from HH can do more damage to our bodies than research dictates. Always consult your doctor even if they are useless. When I first started my hand treatment back in 2005 I was amazed at how my body became calm and how differently my body handled stress. Only to a certain point though. My body only new flight and fight for all the years prior and still relied upon it years after. Now, to no fault of my own I'm paying the price.

Thanks to all of you reading this. I will continue to update as I come across more revelations or personal discoveries.
