    The Resonance Effect by Carolyn McMakin
  • Author: Carolyn McMakin
  • Publisher: North Atlantic Books
  • Format: Paperback


In 1946, Australian osteopath Harry Van Gelder bought an osteopathic practice. As part of the equipment that came with it he found an odd machine that was built in 1922.

Gelder tried out the contraption and found that it had the ability to resonate at a number of different set frequencies. These could be applied in healing and so he began to travel around the United States and Canada using the machine to heal the ailments of patients.

In 1981 George Douglas, a doctor of chiropractic, studied under Harry Van Gelder and so he learned at first hand the way in which the two-channel, micro-current machine operated.

After graduating from medical school in 1993 Carolyn McMakin opened her own practice and she was given one of these machines as a present by Douglas.

The result of his generosity led Carolyn to embark upon an adventure in medicine that pushed her life into a completely new and totally unexpected direction.

A Mixed Account

In her book The Resonance Effect Carolyn McMakin describes the circumstances that brought her into contact with the machine. Soon she became convinced that it was a seemingly transformative piece of medical equipment for with it she was able to heal even deeply entrenched medical conditions including those that whose remedy eluded conventional treatment.

With the machine as the focus of her medical practice McMakin soon found that she was highly sought after for her ability to heal a wide range of conditions such as muscle damage, Fibromyalgia, kidney-stones, shingles, diabetic neuropathic, back pain and liver disease.

Soon her practice was full of patients requesting treatment with the machine and her workload increased to highly stressful levels.

Delicate Diagnosis

In her book McMakin explains a little of the technicalities of the machine as well as how it works. She explains how, although it is based upon scientific principles, the application process does initially require a degree of intuitive skill in order to form an accurate diagnosis of the disease or health issue.

This can be a tricky thing to get right but once it is made the machine is made to oscillate currents of electromagnetic energy at a very specific frequency. These frequencies are specific to the ailment and were established by Harry Van Gelder back in the day. Through their resonance they have the ability to soften up tissue or to dissolve historical blockages in both the immune system and the nervous system.

In The Resonance Effect McMakin shares real life accounts of the remarkable effectiveness of a machine that seems to be able to heal with an extraordinarily high success rate. Alongside these recollections she also presents specific technical data to back up her claims that she has in her hands the secret to healing millions of people of all manner of debilitating illnesses.

And all with a strangely simple box of tricks that was invented over one hundred years ago.

Our Review of The Resonance Effect by Carolyn McMakin

It’s not too often that a book is so utterly peppered with as many jaw-dropping moments as this one.

From start to finish the stories that its author tells regarding her ability to heal using this machine are simply astounding. – so much so that you would seriously wonder at their authenticity if it were not for the supporting documentation to verify them.

This apart, and despite the fact that this is somewhat cutting edge technology, the way that the machine works in applying specific frequencies to equally specific medical conditions is wholly in accordance with the ancient spiritual belief that everything is energy. Thus it figures that if you know the vibrational rate of a medical problem it then becomes possible to change its structure by altering its frequency.

As a publication this is a remarkable account but one that has been personalised through the inclusion of the author’s own recollection of the events as they unfolded. In a sense it is a story within a story which makes The Resonance Effect read like a car crash between science and metaphysics. In this case the casualty is the established medical profession which now has some serious questions to answer in light of McMakin’s work and indepth research.

This is an astonishing work, beautifully written and one that I highly recommend to anyone and everyone who is interested in alternative healing methods.
