Jim Girard began experimenting with Tesla Coils in the late 1980’s after learning about the inventor Nikola Tesla. Within a couple of years he built many sizes, shapes, and output Tesla Coils, with some discharges over 10 feet long. Later he read the Book “The Secret of Life” by Georges Lakhovsky. Lakhovsky’s theories resonated with Jim and he began using his skills of building Tesla coils to make Lakhovsky’s MWO (Multi Wave Oscillator).
In 1993, the first version was launched called the BELS(Bio Electric Light Stimulator). This first version expanded on Lakhovsky’s principles of multiple wavelengths and added light. Using various spectrum tubes filled with different gases, unique wavelengths in the visible light spectrum were generated. This first version utilized a spark gap Tesla coil. Spark gaps were first used in the 1890’s when Tesla built his first radio transmitters. Later Georges Lakhovsky used them in his multi wave oscillator (MWO). The spark gap Tesla coil generated a wide spectrum of frequencies and harmonics. The problem was it could not be varied. There were other issues with the spark gap, such as ozone which is very corrosive, reliability (the spark gap wears over time and needs adjusted).
The next version used a different coil shape (flat spiral pancake coil) which turned out to be too large. During this time Jim read about Royal Rife and began experimenting with one he made from a short wave radio and a function generator. Rife discovered that variable frequencies can be generated using side band harmonics. Jim saw applications with it, but continued experimenting with the Biocharger.
In 2005, the Biocharger 1988 was created which added a variable voltage controller that changed the pulsing. The Biocharger Professional, a professional enclosed system, was also developed using the variable voltage controller.
In 2011, the Biocharger 2012 was introduced. The Biocharger 2012 still had the original spark gap Tesla coil, but had a circuit to pulse at the Schumann Resonance (8 Hertz), 4 Hertz (frequency of early spark gap PEMF), and 20 Hertz (a known Rife frequency) and finally run like the earlier versions with no pulsing. This was done automatically with an external controller. Jim wanted to try higher frequencies, but the design of the spark gap Tesla coil limited him to 30 Hertz.
In 2012, Jim started to experiment with the vacuum tube Tesla coil. Although this was 1920’s technology, this opened up new areas to research including adding Rife frequencies higher than 30 hertz. Rife pulsed up to 50,000 hertz. Jim added the vacuum tube and controlled it with a function generator to vary the pulsing, generating different sets of frequencies and harmonics, similar to what Rife was doing. Unlike the spark gap Tesla coil higher frequencies were achieved Jim had replaced the shortwave radio that Royal Rife used and replaced it with a vacuum tube Tesla coil. The system was very bulky and cumbersome, and not very easy to operate, but very effective.
In 2013, a new company was formed (Advanced Biotechnologies, LLC!) and Jim decided to completely shift gears and stop working with the 1920’s old technology. He looked forward and asked himself what the original researchers such as Lakhovsky, Tesla, or Rife would be using today. Likely not spark gaps or vacuum tubes, but solid state. They would want state of the art technology such as cloud computing, not analog, and function generators. He’d want the product to be easy and safe to use. And most importantly, they would want the BioCharger to be connected to receive updates in software to improve the overall experience.
With this in mind, the BioCharger NG was conceived! Millions of dollars were invested in the development of the BioCharger NG. All the features were added to push forward the technology into the 21st century. Solid state circuitry, cloud computing, and wireless operations make use of this legacy technology to provide a safe and effective experience.
The BioCharger NG is a culmination of over 30 years experience using the Tesla coil as its engine. The patented technology evolved from one fixed set of frequencies and harmonics generated to variable frequency and harmonics that could be precisely controlled. Cloud computing adds to the user experience to create an effective, powerful and easy to use system that will continue to improve over time.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates and ideas from Jim Girard in the future!
