3. What effect
does QRS have on blood pressure?
the Ph and viscosity of the blood and therefore improves blood
circulation. It also regulates the blood pressure. This means
that a high blood pressure will become lower and a low blood
pressure will become higher. This regulation of the blood pressure
takes place during the first two minutes of QRS application.
During the last six minutes, nothing much happens in regards
to blood pressure.
4. If QRS changes
the blood values, what is changed and in how long?
a. It takes about
four weeks for the blood values to change.
b. The partial oxygen pressure normalises after about four weeks
and then increases to above normal
c. The pH normalises after three to six weeks
d. The percentage of cholesterol improves after three to four
months - sometimes it takes longer
e. The calcium and magnesium mirror takes four to six months
to improve significantly
This means that QRS has to be applied for an extended period
of time to obtain positive results. A clinical trial of 122 patients
revealed that after four weeks of application, 67% no longer
had symptoms, 30% had less symptoms and 3% had no change. It
took up to one year to have a universally positive result with
positive influences on even the worst cases.
5. What happens
to plaque build up on the walls of arteries?
With the help
of dark field microscopy, it is possible to demonstrate that
the clotting of blood, the formation of thrombosis, is decreased
using QRS and clots that are present before treatment dissolve.
This reduces the risk of stroke.
6. What is calcium
cascade and why is it an important result of QRS?
of QRS' saw tooth wave signal transports of ions out of the electrolytic
fluids and into cells. This is the only known method of achieving
ion transport. It also enhances the ability to separate ions
and in particular to stream the hydrogen ions. The hydrogen ions
stream through the electrolytic fluids (blood and extra-cellular
fluids) and bump into obstacles in the form of cell membranes.
Calcium is bound to negative charges in the protein layer of
the membrane. The positively charged hydrogen ions combine with
the negative charges bonding to the calcium and release calcium
ions. This causes calcium cascade. The calcium moves into the
intercellular fluids and differentiate into cells requiring calcium
(such as bone and nerve cells) or are removed to waste.
A result of the
calcium cascade in the blood is that calcium deposited on the
walls of the vessels is set free. This in not an immediate occurrence
but one that occurs over a period of six months or more. It means
that arteriosclerosis processes (narrowing of the vessels) can
be stopped and reversed.
When the calcium
arrives in the cell a series of positive effects are generated:
a. The macrophages of the cell are activated. This is an important
component of the immune system. They dispose of cell refuse and
eat pathogens (e.g. bacteria).
b. Enzymes are activated, stimulated and controlled. In short,
the metabolism of the cell is regulated.
c. Nitrogen monoxide (NO) is produced and it vaporises into the
blood. The blood vessels therefore become larger (dilate) and
the blood circulation improves.
d. Cell division or differentiation is stimulated. Differentiation
means that every cell in the human body performs its own special
function. Cancer cells are examples of cells that are not differentiated
properly. This means that correcting the differentiation increases
the number of normal cells.
e. Blood pressure sensors normalise the blood pressure. In the
medulla oblongata, a part of the brain on the extension of the
spinal cord, there are vibration producers for the blood pressure
which react positively to the calcium effect of the magnetic
field and lower or raise blood pressure.
f. Sensitivity to adrenalin and cortisone decreases.
g. The production of insulin is activated (provided that the
cells of the islands of Langerhans which are responsible for
the production of insulin are intact).
h. The channels (gates) in the cells' membranes open which intensifies
i. The sensitivity of nerve ends increase because the calcium,
which is an excellent "prickle guider", attaches itself
to the nerve ends.
j. The fatty acid metabolism is normalised. Although some people
may lose weight through QRS treatment, that does not provide
an excuse for eating more.
7. What happens
if I take blood thinners?
It will take
about four weeks of QRS therapy for blood values to change. It
is necessary for this change to occur before the cause of the
problem can be attacked by QRS. Consult your doctor with a view
to reducing medication as the blood normalises. In practice,
you will feel when it is appropriate to reduce medication and
in consultation with your doctor, this process can be
undertaken safely and gradually. It is emphasised that the time
required may be four weeks but may take several months for some
The same advice
is relevant for medicines in relation to cholesterol, etc.
8. What effect
does QRS have on bone fractures?
The healing process
is accelerated under the influence of the magnetic field. In
addition, in the case of non-healing bone fractures, the callus
forms and the bones set. A woman in Holland with a bone fracture
for seven years that would not mend had the healing process set
in motion after the application of QRS.
9. What is the
situation concerning psychological problems and the QRS?
Under the influence
of QRS, breathing deepens and the patient becomes more relaxed.
In addition, the body secretes its own endorphin during movement
that increases the feeling of pleasure. That has a very positive
influence on patients who suffer from depression. QRS also does
a good job of relaxing the muscles.
10. How does
QRS assist people with osteoporosis?
women, suffer from reducing bone density with increased age.
Whilst there is enough calcium in the food taken, the body is
unable to take it up. Indeed, there is a drain on calcium resources.
QRS creates a separation of ions and the calcium cascade frees
up calcium resources and makes it available to the bone structure.
QRS will increase bone density and remove the pain that is a
symptom of the complaint. The time frame for reduction of symptoms
will depend on each individual's metabolism and will be from
several weeks to many months - but it will occur.
have declined, the treatment should be supported by well-aimed
load bearing exercise.
11. Can I lose
weight using QRS therapy?
Many over weight
users report weight loss during extended QRS therapy. This is
seen as a desirable result of treatment but not a major focus
for QRS. The metabolism is stimulated, the user feels better
and more active, nutrients are taken up and the detoxification
process is promoted. Blood sugar levels are controlled and energy
conversion is enhanced.
12. Can QRS play
a part in the treatment of cancer?
At time of writing,
we have no conclusive scientific proof that QRS will heal or
stop cancer. However, thousands of patients have been treated
with QRS to good effect, generally as an adjunctive treatment.
Some reasons for the good effects of QRS therapy on cancer patients
are as follows:
- The activation of macrophages is a very important part of the
immune system. It removes the toxic products that destroys the
- Enzymes are activated
- There is an improvement in the perfusion of oxygen and partial
oxygen pressure. A cancer cell is anaerobic so the oxygen may
"break" the growth of cancer cells
- The improvement of oxygen is probably one of the most important
factors for the diminished side effects of chemotherapy
- Cells are regenerated and restructured
- General activity and detoxification of the body's metabolism
will facilitate optimum physical and psychological conditions
- The recuperation of a cancer patient after surgery will be
- Side effects of radiation and chemotherapy will disappear more
- QRS supports biological treatment of cancer. The most important
destination of biological treatment of cancer is the immune system,
detoxification, substitution (vitamins, minerals & trace
elements), and the correcting of the energy balance and the regeneration
of cells. This is where QRS can help to support the process.
For common biological treatment, we use enzymes and vitamins
as well as scavengers of free radicals, oxygen, and the mixture
of cellular products (thymus, glands & spleen). For the integration
of all products, the body needs the optimal functioning of the
There is a very interesting theory that explains the often surprising
positive effects of QRS in cancer therapy. A young healthy cell
has a trans membrane potential (TMP) of 90 millivolts. A cancer
cell has a TMP considerably lower (25 millivolts). According
to Dr S. Goyrgu, "a cancer cell is a cell with an electrical
deficiency". At the same time, cells with low TMP are in
the inflammatory state and the sources of pain signals. The TMP
is the measure of the internal energy and the quality function
of the cell. With an abundance of internal energy, the growing
tumour cell must divide itself or perish. But one of the last
memories of a cancer cell at the normal function is to "survive".
So the cancer cell must divide itself more and more. This could
be the reason for an invasive attack and atypical growth of cancer
cells. The QRS can induce the missing ionic charge and the cell
is driven into a more energised state that will slow down or
even stop the growth.
QRS seems to
offer internal energy, thereby lowering the general entropy of
the cancer cell. It acts as a stimulant and bio-energy to the
natural functions of the body, including a boost to the immune
system, creating order out of disorder and helping disorder to
About the QRS
1. What is the
role of QRS in preventative medicine?
is focused on treating those ailments that express symptoms.
In other words, a person needs to be a sufferer before receiving
treatment. QRS provides a simple means of maintaining health
by either reversing developing problems or by stopping them from
commencing. Used once or twice a day for eight minutes, the QRS
will assist the body's natural mechanisms to strengthen the immune
system, make the respiratory system more efficient, dissolve
plaque build up on the walls of blood vessels, reduce stress,
regenerate body cells, increase the partial oxygen pressure to
the vessels, increase oxygen intake by cells, remove impurities
from cells and increase energy and the sense of well-being.
The application of QRS therapy does not provide an excuse for
maintaining poor life style habits. QRS will complement a balanced
diet and frequent exercise to provide optimum health.
2. Where and
when was QRS developed?
It took 20 years
of research at leading universities in Germany and Austria to
develop QRS. In addition, it has been tested at six different
European university hospitals. The key patent was approved in
3. Who invented
20 years of pure
and applied research by several European doctors created a special
controlled type of pulsating electromagnetic field. The Quantron
Salut was developed by Dr. E. G. Fischer with the co-operation
of international scientists. Dr Fischer has written several books
and has focused on the psyche of human beings. He has written
an extensive book about magnetic field therapy. Several patents
have been granted to the company Dr. Fischer AG.
4. What is new
electromagnetic field is characterised by the following three
a. Wave form
c. Field strength
QRS significantly improves all three compared with traditional
Wave form. Electromagnetic
forces are generated in the body by the wave and these are responsible
for the transport of ions. Traditional electromagnetic field
apparatus work with sine or rectangular shaped waves. QRS uses
saw tooth shaped waves. This shape of wave seems to create an
optimum level of ion transport. Dr Fischer AG, the company that
owns QRS, has patented this saw tooth wave shape.
that exists has a vibration, including every atom, molecule and
thus the human cell. We call these vibrations frequency (= the
number of vibrations per second). Most cells have a frequency
of 0.3 to about 1,000 Hz. This means one vibration each three
seconds to 1,000 vibrations each second.
All the traditional
apparatus work with simple frequencies. The QRS uses the frequencies
of the body itself which are generated through movement. The
potential of nerve and muscle action are important in this case
because these electric currents bring the potential of the membrane
of the cell to 70-90 mV. The concept on which the QRS was based
was that humans carry a symphony of frequencies in the total
body. By treating the person through electromagnetic fields,
it is necessary to offer the full package of personal frequencies
that support the body to perform its own functions.
Because the apparatus is using the body's own frequencies, only
a small field strength has to be used. Existing electromagnetic
field apparatus worked with field strengths of 2 to 80 milli
Telsa (Equivalent to 200 to 800 gauss). Therapeutics agree that
the lower the field strength the better the result is. The QRS
works with average field strengths between 1.5 and 15 micro Telsa.
This means that it uses field strengths which are up to 1,000
times lower than those of the existing magnetic field apparatus.
Even the field strength of the earth is greater (50 micro Tesla).
This is why there are no side effects whatever from using the
That there are
only positive side effects in spite of the low field strengths
is due to the resonance. In a similar way that a troop of soldiers
is commanded to break step when crossing a bridge to avoid setting
up a resonance that can lead to the bridge's destruction, or
the potential of a singer to break a glass with a high pitched
sound, magnetic field resonance is a system of energy transfer.
It is QRS' creation of a range of frequencies which appeal to
the body's own frequencies combined with the energy transfer
mechanism of field resonance that produces the effect.
5. Is QRS the
magic formula for good health?
No. QRS is only
a tool that, when used properly, will assist in achieving good
health and maintaining good health. It is not an alternative
to good nutrition, physical exercise and other good lifestyle
habits. Combined with good habits, QRS will add to your quality
of life. It is ideal to use in association with other modalities
because there are no side effects and there tends to be a value
About QRS Equipment
1. What does
the QRS consist of?
There is a control
unit, mat applicator and pillow applicator. The mat applicator
is used with the control unit for normal application. The pillow
applicator is suitable for the application of therapy to arms,
legs, back, etc, and it is also suitable for application for
the whole body during travel.
has a master switch on the rear of the panel and ten pressure
sensitive settings on the front panel. When the chosen setting
is pressed, an automatic therapy application is started. After
eight minutes the therapy is automatically stopped and a series
of three "beeps" is heard.
2. What do the
lights on the control unit indicate during QRS application?
The lights will
flicker for a burst of nine seconds and then turn off for three
seconds. This stops the body's natural frequencies becoming accustomed
to the external stimulation and turning off the effect.
Every two minutes
the direction of the saw tooth magnetic field changes and that
is indicated by the left and right arrow lights. This change
of direction further stops the body's natural frequencies becoming
accustomed to the external stimulation and enhances the level
of stimulation compared with the low level of field strength.
3. What happens
if the patient is longer than the mat?
electromagnetic field extends for a distance of about one metre
in all directions from the mat so the whole body is easily covered.
in the vicinity of the applicator should remain at least one
metre from the mat if they wish to avoid receiving therapy.
4. What are the
frequency components of the QRS pulsating electromagnetic field?
The pulse cycle
is based on three main components:
a. 200Hz which improves blood flow and metabolism
b. 23Hz neutralises the body from the 50Hz frequency generated
by electromagnetic smog (most electronic devices are creating
50Hz waves e.g. TV, computer, microwave and cellular phones)
c. 3Hz (delta wave) is the wave for rehabilitation of the body
and the brain and it improves the deep sleep process.
In addition to
these frequencies there are many other frequencies encapsulated
within the Quantronic signal that cover the spectrum of cell
5. When shouldn't
you use QRS?
a. With epilepsy,
application should be under the guidance of a doctor
b. Fever above 38°C
c. With pregnancy. This is purely a legal restriction because
it is difficult for a manufacturer to prove that a termination
of pregnancy was not caused by application of QRS.
6. What warranty
is provided for the QRS equipment?
a. Five years
parts and labour
b. A further five years parts and labour warranty can be obtained
at time of purchase at a nominal cost.
7. Why don't
the lights flicker when I press the setting switch?
There are three
a. The lights do not flicker on Setting One because there is
only one LCD light illuminated.
b. The plug at the rear of the controller that links the mat
or pillow applicator is not correctly fitted.
c. If b. is found not to be loose, there is a possibility that
there is a fault in the control unit. Refer to warranty.
8. Can the QRS
affect or be affected by other electromagnetic fields?
The QRS field
strength is very low at a maximum of 15 micro Tesla. It will
therefore not have an effect on other technologies placed close
to the applicator. The QRS has a patented mechanism that neutralises
any electromagnetic interference close to the applicator. This
is designed to ensure that the electromagnetic field generated
by the QRS is not degraded by external influences. A positive
effect is that each time a person uses the QRS it neutralises
any electromagnetic smog (50 to 60 Hz) build up within the human
body (from mobile phones, high tension power lines,
9. Can the control
unit be positioned close to the head?
units contain an AC transformer. For this reason the recommendation
is to place the control unit more than 500 mm from the head area.
This is more important when on a bedside
table where the user is sleeping next to it for an extended period.
Where the transformer is external (in the power lead), the control
unit can be placed closer to the head area.
1. What is metabolism?
the sum of the processes or chemical changes in the organism
of a single cell by which food is built up into living protoplasm
and by which protoplasm is broken down into simpler compounds
with the exchange of energy.
2. How long can
a human live?
that an animal can live about five to seven times the time it
takes for the full growth of the skeleton. A human skeleton matures
in 21 to 28 years so the practical potential life span is between
126 and 160 years.
3. How many cells
are there in the human body?
There are 70-100
billion cells (British billion or American trillion). Ten million
cells die each second and are replaced by identical cells.
4. What constitutes
Each cell comprises
a membrane, nucleus and mitochondria, the electricity plant of
the cell. The cell produces its own energy (ATP).
5. What is ADP?
ADP is Adenosine
Di Phosphate. This is the chemical that is converted by the body
into ATP so the body can use it for energy. In addition, a further
90 chemicals are required. Apart from ATP, carbon dioxide, water
and waste products are produced.
6. What is ATP?
ATP is Adenosine
Tri Phosphate. This is the energy the body's cells use.
7. What is the
Trans Membrane Potential (TMP)?
TMP is the difference
in voltage between each side of the membrane of a cell, measured
in millivolts (mV). A young healthy person has a TMP of around
90 mV whereas a sick person can have a TMP of as little as 40
mV. When a person dies, the TMP reduces to 0 mV. The importance
of the TMP can be seen by the energy distribution of the cell.
From the energy produced by the cell, 50% is being used for the
shifting of ADP to ATP and 50% for the maintenance of the potential
of the membrane.
8. What happens
to cell membrane potential during the ageing process?
The answer depends
on the level of health, fitness and activity and varies widely.
A 70 year old may have a potential of 50mV and be considered
normal whereas it is possible for another person to have a potential
in the 70 to 90 mV range. Much depends on the individual's life
style. As the membrane potential diminishes, chronic disease
rises. It is the role of QRS to increase
the membrane potential to its optimum.
9. What happens
when a cell doesn't get enough oxygen?
There is less
ATP synthesis and there is also less energy available to maintain
the potential of the membrane that is needed for the exchange
of building and waste products. The cell is no longer capable
of functioning optimally and will go into a downward spiral and
will die prematurely. A person in a situation of stress may use
up to 70% of the available oxygen to handle the
stress. This will create an oxygen deficit available for cell
regeneration and maintenance.
10. What is meant
by Partial Oxygen Pressure and how does it affect humans?
It is a measure
of the amount of oxygen in the blood measured in mm mercury pressure.
A high level of partial oxygen is important for the micro-circulation
because it determines how much oxygen is available to tissue.
The norm for a healthy 20 year old is about 96 mm mercury whereas
someone of 75 years is about 70 mm. A lower value provides an
indication for a chronic disease. Partial oxygen Pressure increase
significantly (a 15% to 20% improvement is provable) after using
the QRS. The viscosity of the blood changes when the partial
oxygen pressure rises. The blood becomes thinner and blood circulation
improves with the result that the blood delivers more oxygen
to the cells than before application. A consequent result is
reduced heart frequency and deeper and slower respiration. This
deepening leads to an ever greater increase in the partial oxygen
The lungs are
responsible for the oxygen supply of the blood. Another effect
of deeper respiration is that when a person breathes more slowly,
the nervus vagis (para-sympaticus) is being activated and this
results in reduced stress (breathing and heart rate normally
increase during periods of stress). QRS has a calming effect
(stress reduction) on the body. Stress reduction is an
important precursor to the healing process.
11. Why has there
been an increase in chronic diseases in the late 20th Century?
Until early this
century people had to expend significant physical energy during
their daily lives. As a result, chronic diseases were not as
common as today because the body was kept fit by the daily exercise.
Infectious diseases inflicted a heavy toll. Since the end of
the Second World War, mainstream medicine has reduced the number
of infectious diseases but physical exertion has reduced markedly
due to the advent of the car, television and changed work habits.
People are less active and this leads to increased chronic disease.
Environmental pollution is also a major factor.
12. What causes
Disease can be
traced back to a disturbance in the metabolism of cells. This
is called cell dysfunction.
1. What is the
significance of electromagnetic fields?
occur naturally and living cells depend upon them to assist in
the maintenance of membrane potential. The earth and sun create
magnetic fields. When a cell is at rest it does not create a
magnetic field. Human movement creates a magnetic field that
stimulates the cell. Hence the importance of exercise in the
maintenance of health. Without the bio-magnetic fields from the
earth and sunlight, life would not be possible. But what is most
important is that when a human moves it generates a magnetic
field that it uses for cell regeneration. This maintains the
membrane potential at the ideal 70 to 90 mV level.
It is ideal for
a human to optimise the potential of its cell membrane with the
bio-magnetic field of the earth, the magnetic field of the sun
or with the magnetic fields that are generated by human movement
in order to create the optimum cell regeneration environment.
2. What are pulsing
electromagnetic magnetic fields?
field always involves currents of energy flows. A pulsing magnetic
field is not a constant energy flow. It constantly varies from
strong to weak. Pulsing magnetic fields occur naturally in nature.
The bio-magnetic field of the earth, the magnetic field of the
sun and a human's own magnetic field are all pulsing magnetic
The body's cells
quickly become used to a magnetic field and a constant field
will quickly cease to have any effect on the cell membrane potential.
By pulsing the wave it is possible to stop the cell from becoming
accustomed to the field such that positive stimulation and energy
transfer is achieved. This partly explains the effectiveness
3. Why do they
say that the movement of the human body is so important?
the human body generates a packet of frequencies. This results
in improved blood circulation and therefore better oxygen supply,
as well as increased food supply and waste removal.
QRS has the same
effect as movement on the human body but it is more efficient
because it is designed to resonate the body cells' frequencies.
Blood circulation increases measurable within the first few minutes
of application and this extends to the body's extremities. Using
a CMMD diagnostic device applied to the tip of a finger (to measure
the capillary vessels), an increased temperature of 2 to 3.5°C
is normal, thus demonstrating the transfer of blood to the tissues.
QRS is an important aid for people with arteriosclerosis, whose
vessels are narrowed.
