Subject: ReBuilder help for BPH
I would like to give a brief testimony about my
experience with ReBuilder to help relieve problems due
I am now 75 years old, and have experienced BPH problems
with urination for at least 5 years. A urologist
prescribed 0.4 mg Flomax per day to help, and I have
continued on this prescription for five years. Because I
also suffer from cirrhosis of liver, I have a
considerable accumulation of fluid in my abdomen, and I
must relieve myself 3 to 6 times per night. Night time
is the most difficult time because when I am awakened
with the need to urinate, my muscles have closed on the
urethra and it is hard to get them to relax. I keep a
urinal by the bed and kneel at my bed with the urinal
until I can relieve myself - this sometimes takes 5 to
10 minutes. However, when I have had a urinary infection
it has become near impossible to eliminate. Recently I
had such an infection and I tried placing the electrodes
of the ReBuilder at the inside of the hip joints so that
the pulses could cross through my bladder and prostate
as I tried to relax enough to eliminate. This seemed to
help considerably. I was able to get through several
nights while a Cipro antibiotic medication was working
to heal the infection. Since that time I have been using
the ReBuilder when trying to urinate, and I think it is
a big help. It still takes time to relax, and I usually
do this at my bed with a urinal, but at least it does
work with patience. I am very grateful for the help that
it gives me.
When I received my ReBuilder
I was ecstatic. I tried it for the first three days and
I started to feel a difference. After the past few weeks
the bottom of my feet almost feel like normal. They used
to feel like thick leather with hardly any feeling. They
were numb and felt dead. My hands: I had pain in my
hands. My finger tips were so painful I could not button
my buttons on my uniform shirt. I had to ask my husband
to do it. The rest of my hands had pain and were stiff.
I could not type like normal it was too painful. I had
to use one finger at a time for a very short period.
I am amazed that in this short time it has done so much
for me. Please tell the manufacturers THANK YOU THANK
YOU THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. The device
has saved my sanity, my job, and is making me feel
almost normal again.

Whenever I read these articles that deal with
incontinence, I am frustrated that they don't seem to
make the connection between diabetes / neuropathy / loss
of muscle strength, which I've learned are very much
connected. As I treated my feet with the ReBuilder pads
and the gel tonight, I reread the little page that came
with my 2401 unit several years ago, and am reminded
that I could also use this on my back muscles with the
TENS setting, for the pain I get from food
sensitivities. Please use my testimonial for anyone you
need to convince about the effectiveness of this
ReBuilder Medical unit. I would not want to be without
it. My feet would certainly be in lots worse condition;
as it is my podiatrist tells me my feet look very well.
My husband and I were given the ReBuilder by a friend
who used it for her husband and they no longer needed
John contracted lyme's disease which
caused neuropathy in his left leg and also atrophy in
his left thigh and calf. John started using the
ReBuilder twice a day in September of 2007 and just last
week, Feb. 2008 his measurements in his left leg
equalled his measurements of his right leg. Another
thing that he has noticed is that he is not
falling/tripping over little rocks, walking from tile to
carpet and one of the biggest changes is that he can now
walk with care backwards. Before he would have fallen if
he even tried.
Besides using the ReBuilder, John does
excercise in a pool two to three times per week.
I used the ReBuilder on myself and I
was amazed at how my legs felt the next day. I tend to
have tired legs by being on them so much and it suprised
me how well they felt the next day.
Thanks for all the help the staff has
given to us on this interesting journey.
I am a relatively active and healthy
79 year old male and have been suffering with Peripheral
Neuropathy pain for the last 15 years or so -- I have a
pacemaker and upon receiving my ReBuilder Model 2407,
scheduled a visit with my cardiologist’s office to have
it checked out by the pacemaker technician. NO PROBLEM!
I have been using the ReBuilder twice a day for two
months and have noticed the following: Improved balance;
able to, without pain, put on all my shoes other then a
loose pair of old broken down Rockports; I am now
walking ¼ - ¾ mile without rest or pain; also put on my
ballroom dance shoes – first time in 5 years - did a
small amount of dancing; over all less NEUROPATHY
numbness and pain; feeling much better about myself; it
has changed my overall depression moods to a more
positive outlook and I look forward to continuing my
improvements using my ReBuilder.
Many thanks for your invention……it
will help many suffering with Neuropathic Pain.
My husband's neuropathy is MUCH
improved since he began using the ReBuilder 2 1/2 months
ago. He uses it faithfully twice a day and is thrilled
with the difference it has made!

I have suffered from neuropathy of my
feet and lower legs for ten years, starting with mild
burning, then leading to tingling, and progressing to
biting electric shock (drive you crazy) type pain in my
right toe which occurs at night during my attempts to
As I am not a diabetic (my brother and
mother are) the only diagnosis I've been given is that I
suffer from Idiopathic Neuropathy, with no cure or
treatment, except drug therapy, available. I'm not
completely satisfied with this and believe that exposure
to extreme cold temperatures during my 26 years in the
Army, resulting in very numb feet on many occasions may
be the cause. I also suffer from Reynauds Syndrome in my
hands and this seems to me (but not the doctors) to be
linked to Neuropathy.
As I refused to just sit back and let
the disease take its course, I have fought back and have
found the following measures help me overcome and
control the pain:
a. Mild compression support hose helps
reduce the tingling and burning and I wear them every
b. Exercise. I try to walk, rain, snow
or shine at least 4 times/week a distance of between 2-4
miles. I also participate in a weight lifting program
offered by our Senior Center.
c. I eat very healthy and limit the
carbs to 2 slices for breakfast of my homemade bread and
occasional brown Basmati rice or brown pasta. Plenty of
veggies, raw or just barely cooked to include a green
salad every supper, and lean meat and poached wild
salmon fill my menu.
d. MY SECRET WEAPON WHICH HAS MADE THE
LARGEST IMPACT is an Electronic device called "The
ReBuilder System", model 2404, offered by ReBuilder
Medical , Inc, 636 Treeline Drive, Charles Town, WV
25414. Toll Free: 866-725-2202. www:
ReBuildermedical.com. I discovered this device on the
www and was naturally at first very skeptical of their
claims as it looked like snake oil to me. I called them
and voiced my concerns and was referred to the
inventor/owner who sent me a listing of physical
therapists and podiatrists using and having success with
the ReBuilder. After many calls and speaking to at least
10 health professionals, all of whom highly indorsed the
device, I purchased one. I have been using it now for
over three years. I also employ the foot bath method,
using a plastic foot bath tub which they sell, as was
told this gives by far the best results. At first, I
used the device at least five times/week while watching
TV. After 2-3 months of this routine, I could feel a
marked reduction of the annoying and painful symptoms.
My toe pain was now just occasional and could be
controlled by 1- 10mg capsule of Nortriptyline. Since
the initial intensive treatment cycle, I now use the
device only when I feel the need, and this is just 2-3
times a month. Without this device I would be a slave to
the drug industry.
e. When I suffer toe pain, I take 10MG
of Nortriptyline just before bed and this reduces the
toe pain to a level where sleep is possible. (see d.
I hope these measures help someone as
much as they have helped me.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances I
wasn’t able to start using my ReBuilder™ until this
week. I didn’t notice a tremendous difference the first
few days other than it felt better while in the bath,
and I pictured that it was healing my nerves. Each day I
felt a little more comfortable. Last night was the
'clicker.' I was fine, working on the computer. At 10:30
pm I was uncomfortable. It was time to get up, I can
tell by the feel of the foot pain. Before I had a chance
to get up, I had a foot spasm (foot pain, knots, toes
curling under). I was sure I was going to have to have
my husband take me to the emergency room to get an
injection for the pain along with more pain meds. I have
and the muscle relaxers I use (and they are strong!!).
Under normal circumstances, with the pain that bad, I
would wimp out and just get there rather than trying any
of my biofeedback. Usually, it’s just toooooooooo late.
I thought this time I could take it just a little bit
longer to see if I could get some relief from the
ReBuilder™. After only one week of use, and a half hour
before waking my husband to take me to the hospital, the
'ReBuilder™' came to my rescue. It had to be the
ReBuilder™ since I had already taken my medications long
before. I keep praying that whatever is in this
ReBuilder™ continues to work for me. It’s nothing short
of a miracle. I’m going to keep this short. I don’t want
to push my luck. I will keep in touch. I am using the
ReBuilder™ daily and take it to 5 where it is
comfortable (for me) per the instructions. I just
finished my session for tonight, and my feet feel so
good I can hardly wait to climb into bed. Thank you so
much for your support and help during my transition

Endocrinologist, who checks my feet with a vibrator.
When she touched the vibrator to my anklebones, I could

looks like the ReBuilder™ may be successful." W.B. in MA 10/06/05

son has RSD. His feet were not only swollen but
purple in color. I had to put patches on his
spine because of the pain. The spine area was
also discolored. It was unbelievable. He
couldn't even walk right. Now his feet are
almost normal in color. Before he couldn't even
put slippers on, now he can walk and put shoes
on. It's almost a miracle the way it works. I

drugs down considerably." J.M. in PA,
