Title : The integration of the neubie direct current device with traditional and holisticmedicines


The Neubie, or NEUroBIological Electrical stimulation, is an FDA-cleared patented device that safely sends direct current signals to patients experiencing pain, muscle movement limitations and other neurological disorders. It also increases local circulation, prevents atrophy, and reduces spasms. In the 2023 Traditional Medicine meeting in Tokyo we presented on our integration of Tibetan and functional medicines for nervous system disorders, with a brief review of the applications of the Neubie. We shared how the integration of Tibetan and functional medicines and the Neubie provide a synergy that optimizes healing outcomes. In this presentation, we will build on last year’s talk with more details on the Neubie and its benefits for multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and atrial fibrillation (AFib). Two Neubie techniques were used to address these patient populations, Body scanning and the “Master Reset” vagal nerve stimulation protocol. Body scanning is used to determine where the nervous system is imposing limitations of movement in the body to help guide treatments of a few minutes on each site and was used for those with MS and ALS. The Master Reset protocol is used for 20 minutes with electrodes applied to the base of the neck and soles of the feet and is thought to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system via the vagal nerve, bringing calm to an overexcited sympathetic nervous system. Because heart rhythms and arrhythmia are controlled through a fine balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, the Master Reset protocol was used to reset normal heart rhythm to subjects experiencing AFib. For both MS and ALS, applications of the Neubie provided stimulation and activation of nerves to facilitate enhanced movement and decreased spasticity and pain. For AFib, the Neubie provided conversion of AFib into normal sinus rhythm, usually within 3-13 minutes, though occasionally required treatments on two sequential days to create a lasting effect. Given that the incidence of AFib in increasing worldwide and up to 25% of paroxysmal AFib clients can convert to chronic AFib, these results are significant for potential prevention and we are currently exploring preventive applications. Regarding the mechanism of action of the Neubie on the human body and nervous system, the direct current signal mimics action potentials in areas that have dysfunctional or weakened signaling, which can restore function or affect changes on cellular activity, including gene expression, macrophage migration, stem cell migration, morphological changes in brain cells, membrane polarization, increases in nitric oxide, and mitochondrial and long-range cell-cell communication and we hope to stimulate further research into these areas. We experience ongoing in the clinic that the integration of the use of the Neubie with Traditional and Holistic medicines optimizes clinical outcomes.

Audience Take Away Notes:

  • Familiarity with the Neubie direct current device, including scanning and Master Reset protocols.
  • Benefits of the Neubie direct current device for nervous system disorders, including case presentations of multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and atrial fibrillation.
  • A review of potential mechanisms of action of direct current therapies.


Dr. Husted obtained a Ph.D. in physical chemistry with a focus on nuclear magnetism and quantum mechanics as a possible link to the energy concepts of traditional medicines. Her research focus was myelin and multiple sclerosis, including postdoctoral studies at UCSF. She was then Director of the Center for the Study of Neurodegenerative Disorders at UCSB, where she implemented integrative approaches to research of neurodegenerative disorders, including managing a three-acre medicinal plant garden. She is now board certified in functional medicine and conducts integrative research through two nonprofits, the Science and Spirit Institute and the Global Institute for Tibetan Medicine.
