I looked at the website,
and while they do have some cool pictures of a "tripole,"
I have to be a bit skeptical.
I wonder if there has ever been a study
done that shows people have nicer skin in areas
where their cellphones are stored and used? If the
frequency used happens to be in one of the cell
bands, then there should be a lot of people walking
around with beautiful ears, hips, and thighs.
There is at least one legitimate use for
RF therapy other than x-rays for cancer treatment.
Melanie had been suffering with acid reflux for
many years, and back around 2003, she underwent
a treatment called a Stretta® Procedure. It was
a relatively new treatment at the time.
With it, a probe with retractable RF pin probes
is inserted in the esophagus, into the region of
the lower esophageal sphincter (just above the stomach
opening. RF energy (I asked the doc, and he wasn't
sure of the frequency) is blasted into the muscle
with the result being that over a few months time
the collagen in the area shrinks in reaction to
the local heating.
This website has a animation of the procedure

It worked for a couple years, but a hernia
at the top of the stomach lining was still causing
a problem, and limited the effectiveness of the
Stretta, so she ultimately underwent a procedure
where the surgeon wraps the top of the stomach around
the lower esophageal sphincter to physically reduce
its diameter so that the muscle can close the opening.
Incomplete closure is what allows the acid reflux
So far, so good. I only went into
the gory details in case someone reading suffers
from GERD or LPR (which was Melanie's malady) and
is desperately seeking treatment.
