The Rebuilder: Neuropathy Treatment That Works!
Lyrica / Pregabalin
Elavil / Tryptizol / Laroxyl / Sarotex / Lentizol / Amitriptyline
Zanax /Xanax/ Alprazolam
Hydrocodone / Dihydrocodeinone
Most people are offered prescription drugs such as those listed as a first line of treatment. But these drugs can have side effects, and rarely, if ever, improve how the victim feels in the long term. Unfortunately these drugs are primarily designed to reduce pain by reducing sensation. This loss of sensation can be perceived as numbness, loss of balance, etc.. If a healthy person were to take these drugs there is a high probability that they would eventually develop the numbness and tingling symptoms associated with neuropathy.
If you are taking any of these drugs have your physician monitor closely any of the non-pain symptoms of neuropathy and perhaps make the appropriate adjustments in dosage.
There are many and all kinds of nerve stimulators on the market, but the Rebuilder is the only device that duplicates the exact waveform and frequency of a healthy peripheral nerve signal. Our success rate in reducing the symptoms of neuropathy by at least 50% or more during the first 2 months of treatments, is over 90%.
environmental toxins in the work place or home
too much aspartame (neurotoxin) as in diet colas
too much blood pressure medication reducing the blood flow to the extremities
statin drugs you took for cholesterol control
poor blood flow to your extremities
poor back surgery
Think of it like this. When you were young you probably sat with your leg under your buttocks and your leg "fell asleep". How did that feel? You experienced the same symptoms that you now have with neuropathy. Your leg tingled and then you began to feel numbness.
So what did Mother Nature have you do to correct this? You simply moved your leg (stopped the cause) and then stomped your foot on the ground and the feeling returned. Why did this stomping work? It was because you sent a much larger, but normal nerve impulse up your leg to the nerve roots of your lower back. That is exactly how the ReBuilder works.
The ReBuilder sends a much larger corrective signal to your feet, hands, and legs that travel up and down 7.83 times per second.
What is the ReBuilder?
The ReBuilder is a very specialized form of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator) that can produce dramatic improvement in the reduction of painful symptoms.
The ReBuilder is an electronic device used in the privacy of your own home.
The ReBuilder is fully registered by the FDA as a TENS and EMS class II medical device.
The ReBuilder is FDA cleared for: Relaxation of muscle spasms, prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy, increasing local circulation, muscle re-education, immediate post surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, maintaining or increasing range of motion, symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain, post traumatic and post surgical pain.
The ReBuilder is a small, hand-held, battery powered nerve stimulator that sends a comfortable electronic impulse to your feet and legs.
The ReBuilder is effective for hands, knees, elbows, back, feet, and legs.
The ReBuilder is effective for any type of pain:
neuropathy, carpel tunnel syndrome, sciatica, low back pain,
CIDP, post polio syndrome, PAD, PVD, MS, MD, arthritis, etc.
It then waits for an echo-like response from this initial signal. This phenomenon is similar to the patella reflex when your doctor hits just below your kneecap with a little rubber hammer and your leg kicks out.
When this initial signal reaches the other foot, an automatic response sends a signal back to the ReBuilder. (See the illustration of these signals going back and forth above.)
The ReBuilder analyzes this returned signal in a split second and analyzes for returning waveform for aberrations. (Diagram #2)
Just as a cardiologist can take one look at the shape of the signal displayed on the EKG monitor above the patient's bed in the hospital and diagnose what is wrong with the heart, we have been able to identify that the peripheral nerves have a very particular shape to its waveform. Therefore we can diagnose the nature of the problem from analyzing that waveform. This feature is built into the ReBuilder and processed by its internal microprocessor.
Abnormalities in the shape of the waveform on the way up indicate issues with numbness; the shape of the top of the waveform indicates the ability of the nerve to deliver the signal long enough for the brain to receive it all; abnormalities in the downward slope of the waveform indicates pain, and the shape of the refractory period below the baseline (as the nerve cell repolarize's itself) indicates the ability of the nerve pathway to prepare for the next signal.
The ReBuilder then creates a compensating waveform (similar to the Bose headphones that cancel out the background noise on airplanes). Where there is too much energy displayed, the ReBuilder adapts the treating waveform to reduce that energy. Where the waveform indicates too little energy, it increases the energy in that area. This process goes on 7.83 times every second, sending a signal, analyzing the returning signal, creating a compensating signal, and sending this new signal.
The reason for the 7.83 Hz frequency is that it takes time for the nerve cell to re-polarize (or reset) itself between its transmission of nerve signals. Minerals have to squeeze through little holes in the cell wall, and then return. This takes time. We have found that if we slow down the treatment to 7.83 times per second, it gives the nerves time to re-polarize and get ready for the next signal.
A common TENS signal uses an unnatural, uncontrolled, simple signal 90 to 100 times per second precisely to stop the nerve from operating. This may temporarily give some pain relief, but can cause more numbness, and can permanently damage the nerve cell possibly resulting in permanent paralysis.
In effect, the ReBuilder acts like a pacemaker works for your heart's electrical signals. If the pacemaker does not send exactly the right signal, then the four chambers of the heart may not pump in the right order and if the signal is too fast or too slow, the heart stops. So, the ReBuilder's precisely controlled waveform coaxes your nerves to transmit their signals in the proper order.
Although essentially similar to TENS relative to the FDA'a regulations, the ReBuilder's signals are vastly more controlled and precise. Basically a TENS device only blocks pain signals from getting to the brain, while the ReBuilder opens the nerve pathways. The ReBuilder sooths irritated nerves, and wakes up numb nerves.
You can think of the ReBuilder as a pacemaker for your nerves. A heart pacemaker reads your heart's electrical signals and then makes adjustments on the fly to increase a too slow a heart beat or slow down a too fast heart beat. The ReBuilder reads your peripheral nerve's signals, analyzes them, and then sends out a compensating signal.
The ReBuilder is like a TENS on STEROIDS!
How do I use the ReBuilder for neuropathy pain?
Simply sit in your easy chair and turn on the ReBuilder for a soothing 30 minute treatment. Your ReBuilder automatically shuts itself off at the end of the treatment session. The ReBuilder automatically adjusts itself 7.83 times each second to send the exact signal that works best for your particular and unique biology.
Most people use the ReBuilder twice a day for their neuropathy symptoms for the first month or two, then once a day for another month or two, and then once or twice a week thereafter as long as symptoms continue to subside. Then as needed, whenever they feel the symptoms returning or aggravated.
The ReBuilder was originally cleared by the FDA in 1988 and has been undergoing constant improvements ever since then. One such improvement was the addition of special circuitry to enable the ReBuilder to administer its healing signals via special, silver laced electrically conductive socks and gloves. These gloves are manufactured by us specifically to match the impedance and other electrical parameters of the ReBuilder to provide a safe, effective treatment system for the pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, sciatica, peripheral vascular disease and peripheral artery disease.
The ReBuilder is EASY to use. Each kit comes with easy instructions.
There are 3 Basic ways to apply the Rebuilder signal.
There is only one true ReBuilder, and you should be careful not to accept any substitute.
A standard, off the shelf TENS is designed to be used with the electrodes placed about 4 to 6 inches apart. When the electrodes are placed one on each foot or hand, the amount of tissue between the electrodes is about 300 times greater, which means that the electrical resistance is 300 times greater. A regular TENS has to overcome this higher resistance, and can overload itself. Regular TENS do not have circuits to "blow a safety fuse" so they keep right on pumping out more and more current, and this can cause permanent, even fatal damage to your nerves. Regular TENS devices can be very dangerous if you try to use them like a Rebuilder. Always demand "Brand Specific: ReBuilder Model 300 or Model 2407."
Note: Make certain that any garments you use with the Rebuilder have a permanent, sewn-in label indicating that it is the authentic ReBuilder Brand Specific Conductive Garment. Cheap imitations are likely manufactured in China, and besides having a lesser manufacturing quality relative to the sewing, we have found many samples to be contaminated with chemicals just like the contamination found in Chinese drywall and Chinese toys such as lead, arsenic, and mercury. When contaminated, the electrical impulses can cause a transdermal (across the skin) migration of lead, asbestos, cadmium, etc. into the skin of your feet and can cause permanent damage such as paralysis that cannot be reversed. You can cause permanent damage to the nerves in your feet or hands if you allow the use cheap imitation gloves or socks that do not display the sewn in ReBuilder label.
Our socks are manufactured here in the US by us, in ReBuilder's own manufacturing facility. The material first undergoes a rigorous QC process, then washed, then special conductive minerals are infused into the material to standardize the conductivity and make the garments sustain repeated washings and to properly and safely carry the unique ReBuilder impulse to your nerves.
Always demand the original, Brand Specific, ReBuilder products.
Are there any other uses for my ReBuilder®?
Yes, your ReBuilder can be used to soothe aching muscles in your shoulders, sciatic nerve area of the buttocks, and upper back. Wherever you have discomfort, simply place the signal pads near the site. You you can even wear the ReBuilder 300 on your belt and continue your daily activities!
Books featuring the ReBuilderThe Encyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs & Forbidden Treatments
"ReBuilder Medical, Inc, of Charles Town, WV offers a small, battery operated electrical device that promises to reduce or eliminate the pain. The ReBuilder sends healing, non-painful electrical signals to the extremities. Patients begin by using the device once per day for about 30 minutes. As symptoms subside, frequency of use can be decreased to two or three treatments per week.
Patients average a 96% reduction in pain. Even those who have been told 'nothing else can be done, the nerves are dead' may find relief using this device. David B. Phillips, Ph.D., inventor of the ReBuilder, is also the inventor of the GST Breast Cancer Detection system, and was given the Inventor of the Year Award in 1987 for his development of the infrared ear thermometer, a well-known household item."
Beating Neuropathy Pain
Managing pain from peripheral neuropathy in private practice can be one of the most frustrating clinical experiences for Primary Care Physicians and Neurologists alike. Until now, most treatments have focused only on symptom control, largely by way of drugs, and blood sugar control in diabetic patients. Physical Therapy alone often provides little if any lasting relief. As you know, drug costs and patient compliance, as well as medication side effects have left us all wishing there were more as doctors that we could do for our patients. Well, now there is!
"These cases using the ReBuilder are nothing short of miraculous. Previously, treating patients with peripheral neuropathy pain hasn't been really successful. Often, it's been hit or miss. We've had some pretty good results in the past with nutrition therapy, but I've never seen the resolutions like we're seeing in these cases… Dr John Hayes Jr, Author Beating Neuropathy Pain-Taking Misery to Miracles in Just 5 Weeks!
Treasury of Home Remedies & Natural Cures
"Thanks to the inventor Dr. David Phillips for the ReBuilder 300 Neuropathy Treatment System, a treatment that can help relieve pain, numbness and discoloration, and may actually restore the feeling in feet and hands, restore balance and mobility and reduce or eliminate the need for pain medication."
"The ReBuilder is based on the fact that nerves are electrical in nature and respond to specific electrical stimulation that duplicates a healthy nerve signal."
"The ReBuilder can be used in the comfort of your home. Each treatment takes a half hour, during which you can just sit back and relax. Throughout the session gentle massaging pulses work to totally eliminate or ease symptoms, and symptoms are reduced for hours afterward. Permanent benefits accumulate with continued use."

"Pain levels were reduced in all 6 patients. Original pain levels ranged form 5 to 10. The average reduction on the pain scale was three levels after a two-weeks and five levels by the end of the study. Four of the patients had trouble falling to sleep before the study and all noted improvement within two days of starting the neuromuscular stimulator."
"No adverse reactions or allergies were reported."
"The ReBuilder TENS unit provides acceptable pain and neuropathy symptom relief for patients with VD, DM, Alcoholism and Chemotherapy agents and is very easy for patients to self-administer."
Letter from Physicians
We have used the ReBuilder for the past 6 months on cases of peripheral neuropathy where symptoms of numbness and/or burning pain were reported. Over 80% of these patients reported significant reduction of these symptoms after just 3 weeks, or 9 sessions, and currently 5 patients have obtained or in the process of obtaining their own home units. I suggest it be considered for treatment of balance-challenged patients when proprioceptive deficits may be attributed to loss of foot sensation. In these cases, we have found improved gait and performance on the CTSIB tests suggesting improved somatosensory function.
Paul J. Tryninewski, director of Physical
Medicine and Rehabilitation
"What is unusual about the ReBuilder™ is that a referring physician, a family practice MD in our community, called me to follow up and report the success of a patient we had both seen who had presented with severe neuropathy, primarily pain and tingling in his feet and with concurrent difficulty sleeping. After unsuccessful treatments with Cymbalta, Lyrica and Neurontin, the patient was referred to me. I performed a nerve conduction velocity exam and found that there was a significant delay in the transmission of nerve signals in both of his legs. After exhaustive blood work I could find no reason for his symptoms and since he had already tried drug therapy with no resolution of his symptoms I referred him back to his GP.
My friend reported that our patient had found a new device on the internet, bought it, used it, and now was asymptomatic after two months without drugs. I was cautiously intrigued, and requested that he return for a follow up so I could test him again to see if there was any objective, measurable, improvement. To my surprise and delight, I found that his NCV test was now normal. I requested full documentation from ReBuilder Medical and read with interest their monograph from the inventor, David B. Phillips, and found it to be highly accurate, educational, and taxing to read because of its intensive technical nature. However, it explained a new concept that makes total sense.
I now prescribe the ReBuilder™ routinely. Of the 20 patients in my practice who have used the ReBuilder™, all but one have experienced significant relief. Six patients were diagnosed with idiopathic neuropathy, 7 were diagnosed with impingement syndrome in the lower back or buttocks, and 6 suffered from diabetes. The one who did not respond suffers from long term uncontrolled diabetes and has the "stocking feet" dark discoloration of his ankles and feet and has periodic glucose levels exceeding 500, with an A1c of 13.
I urge all medical professionals who see patients with neuropathic symptoms to prescribe the ReBuilder™ as the preferred treatment before they have to resort to prescription drugs."
From happy ReBuilder users:
"The ReBuilder™ is doing what the doctor said he couldn't. I am walking again and doing other things without medicine. Thank you for your wonderful product." A.K. in AR 01/12/06
"I have type-2 diabetes
and peripheral neuropathy. Have only had ReBuilder™ for a bit
more than a month and already there is a physical improvement,
remarkably less pain, and even a visible improvement. After
using the system for about a week, I noticed the rash-like
patches on my leg seemed to have faded so I took a digital
photo. It is lighter yet and soon I'll take another digital
photo and send them to ReBuilder™. Thanks for the great
product." - C.N. internet 01/04/06
"Dr. Phillips, THANK YOU for allowing me the opportunity to enjoy life without almost constant pain. I have now owned and used the ReBuilder for a little over 4 weeks and the results have been wonderful. After just a few days, I began to notice a big difference in the way my legs felt. I started sleeping better and was able to walk better. I went back to my specialist that treats me for my pain last week. He said that I was walking much better and seemed greatly improved over all in my legs. I plan on telling anyone that I find out has pain about the ReBuilder. Please keep up the wonderful work that you are doing." Dale F
The primary differences are power and portability. If you have moderate to advanced neuropathy, with severe numbness or pain, the 2407 model is your best choice. Or - if you suffer in 2 or more places. (Ex. feet /hands) If you have beginning or moderate neuropathy, or are hypersensitive to touch, then the 300 model is the better choice.
Both units have identical waveforms specifically designed to:
The 2407 model has 33% more power, and is used primarily for those patients who have moderate to advanced pain or numbness, and for those who suffer in multiple areas. (hands/feet)
The 2407 model has 3 frequency settings. One setting is the Patented Rebuilder signal for reading and stimulating and re-educating nerve pathways to eliminate pain and numbness. It has an EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation) setting to increase circulation and strengthen leg muscles that have atrophied due to disuse and non firing. This helps with strength, balance and gait issues. The EMS setting also helps to increase local blood circulation to the legs and feet and can be used to interrupt severe muscle cramps in the back and calves.
The third settings is a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) (Used only for short term localized trauma pain… not for neuropathy.) The 2407 model can be plugged directly into the wall to save on buying batteries and to provide of 33% more power. Large adjusting knobs and printing on the case make it easier to operate for those with vision problems, or who have arthritic hands.
The 300 Personal Model runs just one setting: the Patented Rebuilder signal for reading and stimulating and re-educating nerve pathways to eliminate pain and numbness. It is miniaturized, so that the patient can choose to wear the device on their belt to treat symptoms for longer periods of time, particularly to treat muscle spasms in the lower back. The 300 is battery operated only. The 300 model is designed to be wearable, particularly for those whose neuropathy is caused primarily by lower back and sciatic nerve issues.
