Microcurrents are very weak current intensities in the microampere range, i.e. below one milliampere. When zapping, this corresponds to voltages below one volt, according to Ohm's law "voltage = resistance x current" (the resistance is the skin).

Alan Baklayan noticed during his tests that low voltages were tested positively under one volt in the supporting programs, i.e. the so-called "feel-good programs of the harmonic vibrations". He was completely surprised that the effects were sometimes stronger than with the 1.2 to 15 volts used so far. He then used the low voltages systematically and found that other researchers confirmed his tests:

The Arndt-Schultz law states: "weak stimulation increases physiological activity, and very strong stimulation suppresses or destroys activity".

In his scientific work entitled "The effect of electric current on STP generation, protein synthesis and membrane transport in rat skin", Dr. Cheng Ngok finds that ATP production increases by 500 percent at currents between 50 and 1000 microAmpere (ATP is the energy supplier for our cells). With over 1000 microamps the production remains the same, and at more than 5000 microamps it goes down. At currents above 5000 microAmpere the current is destructive.

This corresponds to the observations of Alan Baklayan who always tested the maximum voltage in the fight against parasites, viruses, mycoses and bacteria, but a better effect of the microcurrents for regulation, healing and detoxification frequencies.

Therefore the Diamond Shield Rife machines are designed to be adjustable down to 0.1 Volt. On the other hand, the maximum voltage is increased to 16 volts.
