Sprawling -- any update over the last 9 months? Still using the Galvanic Stimulator and has it continued to be effective? Thanks!

I've been using it for years now and my Fischer device has been mothballed. I still get wonderful results. About a year ago I purchased a backup of the same device for $140. That's just in case it breaks. All I can say it's great doing ionto treatments without pain.

Thanks! I've been doing the 12V lantern battery thing but am seriously considering purchasing the device you've been recommending after reading through all this thread. Glad to hear the results are still wonderful and thanks also for sticking around here for so long so that we can hear about the results over time!

Sprawling, in earlier posts you mentioned:

"2- set the dial wheel between 3.5-4 or whatever feels comfortable. "

Any idea what voltage and mA this results in? Just curious for comparison.

I have no idea. I'm sure it can be measured using a voltmeter. I basically set the dial by feel. If the current is to strong I dial it back, not strong enough I move it up. Some days I use more voltage than others. The key is to be as comfortable as possible. I just like to feel a slight tingle so I know that it's working. I also do both hands and both feet at the same time. This saves me time. The actual treatment time is 1/2 hour. with setting up, putting stuff away, getting everything situated it's about an hour process.

I tried this machine and unfortunately it did not do the job for me. For my hands I have found DC current at 12-18 volts to be the most effective. I will be experimenting with this:

I'm sorry that the galvanic didn't work for you. I hope what you found on Amazon works. Hopefully you'll build a box for it.

Keep us posted on how it works for you. The price surely is right.

I posted several years ago when I started trying this out, nice to see the thread is still going.

It worked well for a couple of years for me until the galvanic simulator stopped working, at which point I started to question the effect of it as my hands and feet were no longer keeping dry. I then came into possession of a German made iontophoresis machine and after using it for around a year now, and it would appear that iontophoresis no longer works for me regardless if it's a specifically made ionto machine or a home made one.

I'd say that the galvanic simulator is every bit as good as a proper machine once it's set up and you've gotten used to it, and the effect is comparable. Certainly saves a lot of money compared to buying an ionto machine.

Thanks for the follow up dezza. It's a shame that ionto stopped working for you. My ionto issue stem from my body that is battling Chronic fatigue/ME type condition along with the location where I live. I go through days and /or weeks with soaked hands and feet and then magically days where they are pretty much bone dry.

I'm still using my galvanic religiously since I purchased it at the beginning of this thread. Many people on here contacted me over the years who purchased the same unit I have. Some were successful with treatment, some weren't. I do my best to help others by answering questions when I can. Ionto success has no magic formula, only statistical data of things to try and luck that it works.

One thing I can say with certainty is that just because a machine is expensive and comes with a named brand doesn't mean it's going to work any better than an AC to DC converter or batteries, or a laptop power supply. Sometimes ionto just doesn't work for people... unless it does.

Hi Sprawling, great to see you're still active on here.

Iontophoresis is highly variable from person to person and even over time - it's not a cure and can't be guaranteed as a long term relief treatment either - I intend to start over again in a few weeks and see if that helps. The only thing that did help when I had it done at the hospital was the glyco solution in ionto, but unfortunately still can't be prescribed for home use.

The galvanic simulator idea certainly works as well as the dedicated machines, and would much rather have shorter-term success from it and the low cost of getting one than paying 5x+ the price for a branded machine with the same results.
