Product Review: Sota Instruments “Silver Pulser” Colloidal Silver Generator and Electrical Pulse Device

Sota_Silver_PulserProduct Review:  Sota Instruments “Silver Pulsertm” Colloidal Silver Generator and Electrical Pulse Device for use with the “Beck Protocol”  for wellness. 

This unit is a prime part of my personal first aid kit.  I never want to be without one.  I have been using the earlier model of the Sota Instruments Silver Pulsertm since the early 1990s. 

In order to be in full compliance with FDA requirements, I absolutely cannot make any claims about what the device or the protocols can do for you.  However, I can tell you what my own personal experience in using it has been.  By using it I have avoided many colds, flus, and similar pathogenic health problems over the years.  It has helped to keep my family safe and healthy, as well.  On the rare occasions when I have gotten sick, I believe the recovery has been dramatically hastened by using the Silver Pulsertm.  In order to satisfy the FDA requirements and those of related agencies I am reminding you that I am not making any claim whatsoever regarding any benefits or results that you may get from using this or related devices.  I am just reporting what my own experience has been. 

The Silver Pulsertm, based on Dr. Robert Beck’s research, design and protocols, includes both a way to generate your own colloidal silver, and a way to use electrical pulsing also known as “micro-pulsing”.  For those not familiar with the “Beck Protocol” I have included a brief summary of the 2 prime elements of it at the end of this review. 

The new “Silver Pulsertm” by Sota Instruments, has a new case, some new features and refinements, and a new Sota model number: SP5.  Those familiar with the original model will appreciate a number of primarily minor refinements.  (If you already have one of the older models, there may be no reason to replace it.)

However, there is one very significant improvement:  The circuitry that is used to generate the colloidal silver has been improved so that the size of the silver particles is much smaller than that generated by the prior model.  Research has shown that smaller particles are far more effective.  So if you generate your own colloidal silver, then consider getting the newer model.

The published specifications for the new model state that the silver particle size ranges from 0.005 – 0.015 microns, (verified by scanning electron microscope technologies).  The Silver Pulsertm converts 16 ounces of distilled water to a colloidal silver preparation, containing 5-8 ppm, (parts per million), in 2 hours.  Further, the silver electrodes that are furnished with it are .9999 pure fine silver, resulting in a primarily silver ion output, with very little contamination from other elements.  (Such contamination levels are so low as to be not significant.)

Dr. Beck was clearly not in this for the money.  He freely posted his research, including detailed circuit designs for the devices he invented and engineered, in the public domain. In fact, if you are so inclined, you can find the circuit designs for both his colloidal silver generator and his immune system electrifier on-line.  A little searching will find them readily available on many sites. 

Then you can buy the parts at a local Radio Shack for less than 60 bucks.  A number of years ago I actually did this just to see what was involved.  I built a Beck micro-pulsing unit that worked, but concluded that for most people building one of these units is not worth the time and effort.  I am mostly pointing out this option to demonstrate that Dr. Beck truly was not in this for the money, but rather was dedicated to helping people seeking improved wellness.

Beck Protocol Summary:

The Beck protocol for defeating and preventing disease is extensive, and its safety and effectiveness are well supported by a long history of anecdotal as well as more purely scientific research and study.  There are a number of elements to the Beck Protocol, which are available for study. 

In this summary, I am including just the 2 elements to the Beck Protocol that Dr. Robert Beck considered to be the most critical.  They are the ones I have relied on most heavily over the years.

Electrical Stimulation Of The Immune System:  For decades now, many immunologists have known that small electrical charges are critical to the chemical reactions that the cells in our immune systems use to kill pathogens. 

Dr. Beck came up with a practical way to increase the electrical charge of the specific immune system cells that are carried in the blood stream.  His research demonstrated that increasing the electrical charges that these cells carry improves their ability to kill most pathogens. 

This part of the Beck Protocol, using a Silver Pulsertm, or a similar device, (including a home-made one if you are so inclined), calls for wearing the device for 2 hours each day that your immune system is under threat, or that you are working to overcome an existing infection.  (Claims exist that Dr. Beck’s protocol is useful even for helping to eradicate a number of serious health problems.  Evaluating these claims is beyond the scope of this review, but I would not discount them out-of-hand.)

According to the Beck Protocol The Silver Pulsertm, or equivalent micro-pulse generating device, should be strapped to the inner forearm, near the elbow.  The 2 electrodes should be covered with the cotton sleeves that come with the device, which are then moistened with a solution of sea salt and distilled water.  They need to be positioned on the inner wrist area, each positioned over one of the two wrist arteries that are commonly used to feel for a pulse in that area.  (These are the radial and ulnar arteries.  You can find images of them on the Internet to be sure exactly where they are.) 

Once the device and the electrodes are in place, (the Silver Pulsertm comes with elastic straps with Velcro fasteners to make this easy), turn up the voltage until you feel a slightly uncomfortable, throbbing pulse.  Immediately turn it down to a level that you can still feel, but which is comfortable.  The pulse should be noticeable, but in no way uncomfortable.  Wear the device for 2 hours at least once a day.  For more serious or persistent problems, consider a session in the morning and one in the evening.

It is estimated that it takes approximately 2 hours for the entire blood supply to pass any given point in the body.  That is why Dr. Beck recommended a 2 hours session for blood electrification – so that all of the appropriate immune system cells could be charged.

Several Cautions With Blood Electrification:  If you build your own device, make sure you test it carefully to make sure that the electrical output is within spec.  (You don’t want to shock yourself.)  The Sota models are safe in this respect.  The Sota Instruments Silver Pulser, or any such Beck micro-pulsing device if properly built, delivers voltages that are lower than those found in approved “Tens” units that are commonly prescribed for pain management. 

If you have a pacemaker, it would be prudent to check with your cardiac health care provider before following the blood electrification protocol.  I have never heard of a problem in this regard, but because of the potentially serious consequences it pays to be more cautious.

Another serious caution in using any form of blood electrification is a phenomenon called: “cell electroporation”.  This is simply the tendency of cell membranes to become more permeable when exposed to small electrical currents.  In practical terms this means that pharmaceuticals may be more effective as higher quantities and concentrations of them may penetrate your cell membranes.  So if you are taking any strong pharmaceuticals you may need to pay more attention to doses for the 24 hours before you use the device and the 24 hours following its use.   Failure to heed this cuation could lead to accidental overdoses of the pharmaceuticals.

By the same token, be careful about exposure to toxins, such as nicotine from the use of tobacco products, using solvents, etc. for the 24 hours before and after using the device.

A minor caution is that wearing the device repeatedly may cause some skin irritation just wear the electrodes make contact.  This is easily overcome by alternating arms between sessions, and by applying a safe, non-toxic skin treatment such as pure lanolin or pure aloe vera gel to the irritated area.

Generating And Using Colloidal Silver:  A second primary element of the Beck Protocol is the use of colloidal silver.  Here’s how I do it:  I use a good quality, very clean drinking glass, filled with distilled water.  I clean the silver wires with the cleaning pad included in the kit.  I connect the silver rods to the device, insert them into the holder and then into the water.  I turn on the device and set my timer for 2 hours.  At the end of 2 hours, I remove the rods, turn off the device and my colloidal silver is ready to use.

If you are new to the use of colloidal silver, it is recommended that you obtain advice from an experienced and knowledgeable health care provider.  I know of no problems with the use of colloidal silver, as long as it is properly prepared, but lots of people seem to have concerns about its use.  To alleviate these concerns and to be sure you are using it safely and appropriately, I recommend obtaining guidance from a qualified source to get started.

Such advice is beyond the scope of this review.

By the way, the electrification protocol that the Silver Pulsertm uses, and that is recommended in Robert Beck’s protocols is very different from that promoted by Dr. Hulda Clark.  It also is different from the protocols and effects of Rife Machines.  In some circumstances it may be desirable to combine the Beck protocols with the Rife and Clark protocols.  This may be helpful in dealing with more challenging situations.

    Thank you for the info. Although, I’m a bit confused though about the zappers out there….I red, that Rife Machines are using – charges, that is actually keeping parasites allive!!!!
    And there is the, the croft zapper, sota than the….hmmm…..what to buy? I’d like to get rid of (imagined?) parasites and all kind of pathogens in my family.
    In your oppinion, whitch one is the best one to get?

    The more i read, the less I’m sure of.

    I’m also wondering, how come that both inventor (dr Bec and dr Clark) dd not live for a very long time since they were using this instruments?

    Thanking you in advance for your help!

      It is an admittedly confusing field. There is a lot of mis-information out there, and maybe even a bit of disinformation, (that which is deliberately misleading), as well. So any confusion is understandable. There are whole books on the subjects of “electrical medicine” and “vibrational or energy medicine”, which is really two separate subjects, but which are often lumped together. the fact that one of my research colleagues has a Ph.D. in electrical medicine indicates just how involved the subject is.

      So I will not be able to clear up everything in this response. Furthermore, I certainly do not know everything about the subject. I don’t think anyone does.

      That said, I can clarify that the Sota Silver Pulser does 2 things: It allows you to make your own colloidal silver, which can be very useful for getting rid of pathogens or many different types, as well as for wound healing. I think it belongs in all 21st century first aid kits. Secondly, the Sota can be worn to “electrify” the immune cells in the blood, which empowers them to much more effectively eliminate pathogens.

      In contrast, the Rife technology uses frequencies to affect the body and to deal with various health issues. Using them can be very effective, however using them properly requires extensive training and lots of background knowledge. I think they are safe and marvelously effective, but need to be used at least under the guidance of a practitioner with the appropriate expertise. Properly used, I have never heard of any negative effects from Rife machines.

      Similarly, the Clark and the family of “zappers” inspired by Clark can be very effective. They use both frequency and electrical pulsing. But again, the more sophisticated of them do require some expertise to be used effectively.

      There is no reason why the Sota cannot help you to get rid of parasites and other pathogens. However, I think to do this in a timely manner you will need a llittle bit of guidance.

      I offer a free 1/2 hour consult for anyone considering using my services. That could be enough to get you started. So I invite you to take advantage of my offer. If you are interested, send my an e-mail: and we can set a time. I work both in person and by phone, so our geography will not be an issue.

      By the way, I did not comment on the relatively short life-spans of both Dr. Clark and Dr. Beck. I can share what I know of that with you when we communicate more directly. I can assure you that this information should not detract from the reputations of the technologies they both developed.

      Hi David, First let me say that I am sorry for your suffering. And I am honored that you ask my opinion regarding such serious matters. Unfortunately, I am not going to give you a deffinitive answer about whether or not a given device or protocol would help or make sense. I really would not be serving you well to try and give you a deffinite answer at this point since I know so little about what is going on with you and with your health.

      The Sota Instruments devices are excellent in my opinion and the protocols for which they are designed are also very good and can be highly beneficial. However, my whole philosphy of health centers around the core principle that we are each highly individual beings and that a careful and complete analysis must be done of any serious health issues before just throwing various measures at them.

      The bottom line is that the Silver Pulser and the measures it is designed to be used for could be very helpful. But that may not be the best approach to resolving your problems and restoring your health. If you want to contact me directly we can have a conversation so that I can learn mnore about what is going on with you and so that you can learn what my approach is. To me that is a direction that is much more likely to help you achieve the results you really want.

      I offer initial consultations at no charge and with no obligation. If this sounds good to you please e-mail me directly at:

      To your best health,

    What’s up mates, how is the whole thing, and what you would like to say concerning this piece of writing, in my view its actually amazing in support of me.

      Thank you for your kind words. I do my best. My mission is to help people to learn as much as they can about really sensible health self-care and when and if they need to work with a doctor or other practitioner how to be sure they are as well informed as possible so that they can ensure they get the best care possible. The priority of “profits over people” that has invaded and corrupted so much of our health care system makes this a real challenge. I am grateful to all of my colleagues and to everyone who is on the right side of this struggle for our essential right to good health. It all starts with good and free information.

      Hi Alex, the sota Silver Pulser can help, and is even an important component in an overall plan, but there is more that is needed if you want to increase your chances of getting rid of persistent, serioius and difficult viral infections, such as hepatitis C. In my experience, the best outcomes are the result of tailoring a comprehensive plan to fit the individual and then monitoring it and sometimes adjusting it along the way. In my many years at this, I have had it thoroughly confirmed that expecitng a single protocol, or falling under the spell of what I call “The Silver Bullet Syndrome” does not lead to good outcomes most of the time. Furthermore, the one-size-fits-all approach does not lead anywhere you want to go, either. Those are the 2 biggest flaws I see in too much of the alternative health arena. You can contact me at: to set up an initial complimentary session so that we can see what is most likely to be right for you. There are still no guarantees about the outcome, but I believe that you will greatly increase your chances of getting the results you want.

      To your great health!

      Hi Eloise, Thanks for your kinds words and comment. I appreciate it. How can I find out what you are presenting? When are you presenting it? Is there a way I can learn more. I am always interested in gathering more information that I may be able to use to help people. I am always looking to share so that as an informal team, we can address the most pressing health needs and help as many people as possible.

      Also, I have some newer information about generating your own colloidal silver. Look for it on this site in the next week or so.

      To your great health!

    can the silver pulser be used in parts of the body other than the wrist and if yes what would be the advantages, disadvantages?

    thank you.

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted May 29, 2013 at 8:00 pm | Permalink


      I suppose you could try to attach the Silver Pulser contacts to other parts of the body. But it likely would be mechanically difficult, and I cannot think of any advantage. The two main arteries that run down the inner forearm and along the inside of the wrist are relatively close to the surface, and they are spaced conveniently in relationship to the rest of the arm for placing the contacts from the Silver Pulser. So it seems to be the logical place to attach the unit. Because doing this for many days in a row can irritate the skin, I recommend alternating arms. And if the skin does become irritated, I recommend rubbing some pure aloe vera gel on the skin.

      If you attach the unit to the inner wrist area as recommended, and then leave it on and running for 2 hours, you will theoretically charge the entire blood supply, which is how the unit is intended to be used for stimulating the immune system.

      I hope that answers your question. Please let me know if I can be of further help in any way.

      To your great health,

      Jeff Bell
