The Revitive Medical device is an excellent product, and it’s capable of affecting change throughout the entire body.
One reason the device is effective is that it’s powerful.

And, with any powerful device, it’s important to use it wisely — to both achieve maximum results and avoid setbacks. How to use the Revitive depends, mostly, on you — and your body.
Generally speaking, you’re probably one of two types of people:
Do you know which type of person you are? If so, great! This will help you know what to expect from the Revitive.
Let’s explore how you should get started using the Revitive?
The Revitive user manual recommends 1-2 sessions per day, with an upper limit of “up to six (30-minute) sessions per day.”
The manual recommends an intensity setting of 40 and above — but this is likely optimized for typical, not-sensitive people.
It also recommends that you drink water before and/or after each session.
Remember, the Revitive is really, really powerful — and these recommendations will almost certainly be too intense for many, if not most people.
If you’ve been dealing with any long-term chronic health issues, especially ones that interfere with your body’s homeostasis, it’s almost certain that you will need to start more gently.
So how do we begin using the Revitive more gently?
If you’re sensitive, it’s likely you’ll notice some unwanted effects from the Revitive, at least at first.
The most common might be sleep disturbance, related to dehydration, falling blood sugar, or simple energizing of the body.
Second, you might notice that the sensations are overwhelming — even on tiny settings.
There, if you might be sensitive, only do one or two sessions per day, to begin.
Then find the intensity setting that feels comfortable. For some that might be 50 and above. For others, that might be closer to 7-20. For a few, it might be all the way down below 4.
There is no wrong setting to use the Revitive! Even at the lowest settings, the device delivers powerful free electrons to the body. It delivers quite a bit more electricity than grounding on the Earth, even below a 4.
There’s also no wrong duration to use the Revitive. Of course, more could be better because more electricity is delivered to the body, which results in more benefits.
But if your body is overwhelmed by the sudden influx of energy, the only thing that matters is that you reduce the duration to the point that you can tolerate it.
When reducing the duration of your sessions, reduce significantly if needed. The goal is to feel good afterward. A pleasant sense of energy and calm is the goal. Find the duration (and intensity) that meets this goal — even if that’s only 5 minutes on setting 2.
You may find that you can use the Revitive for longer sessions if you lower the intensity. This is highly recommended — to choose a longer session at lower intensity than the other way around.
Thus, if you can only tolerate the Revitive on level 2 — for five minutes at a time — that’s okay! I suggest doing exactly that (level 2 / five minutes) each day.
Once you’ve found your comfort zone, over a few days or weeks, see if you can raise the duration by a few minutes — before increasing the intensity.
Over time, you’ll probably find your tolerance improves, as well as the benefits as you increase usage of the device.
A few obstacles can make you less likely to tolerate the Revitive’s energy. Sick buildings may be the biggest obstacle to using the Revitive. If you’re in a sick building, you may need to use the Revitive on the lowest settings, and for short durations.
Most people will tolerate the Revitive with zero problems. These people can use the Revitive 4-6 sessions per day with no issues.
So, if you tolerate Revitive’s electrical current, I recommend 4-6 sessions per day for optimal effect.
This is the sweet spot where you will see the most benefits.
Not matter how you tolerate the intensity, it’s a good idea to work up to four (or more) 30-minute sessions per day.
Next, find the instensity level that works for you! Many folks tolerate somewhere between 40 and 60. If you’re higher or lower than that, that’s great. All that matters is that you’re getting as many free electrons as you can each day!
The Revitive is incredibly gentle in its effects — but some with chronic health conditions may notice a few interesting phenomena after use.
Keep in mind, the effects from this device on the body are due to the introduction of new electricity into the biological system — and much change happens when new energy enters tissues.
This has a great effect on the body! Both the metabolism and immunity will likely be boosted.
With these changes — especially in a state of chronic health struggles — we see the body’s homeostasis shift, sometimes rapidly. Homeostasis just means balance; the body’s balance is shifted — especially its fluid balance.
The Revitive’s “boosting” effect will cause both immediate and long-term effects on the body.
In the immediate, the metabolic and immune boost will use up nutrients and water — leading to symptoms of dehydration.
But over time, if we supplement those nutrients (especially minerals) and drink more water, the heightened metabolism and immunity will work together so that the body is healthier — resulting in better nutrient stores and hydration of cells.
In other words, the root causes of chronic dehydration (as a result of illness/aging) are being addressed by the free electrons.
It’s important to consider that the chronically ill/aging body is depleted of most nutrients, not just water and minerals. When the Revitive boosts metabolism, there may not be many nutrients available to use. This is a temporary depletion of nutrients as they are used up.
What the Revitive does, though, is address the root cause of nutrient depletion — which is inflammation. Over time, the body will be in a better place to be able to absorb those nutrients, and hydrate more properly.
Therefore, as long as you hydrate (drink water + minerals) after using the Revitive, the body should become healthier and healthier, more nutritionally sound, and better hydrated.
Think of it this way: In chronic illness/aging, water “goes right through us,” but when we are healing, the opposite happens. We stop wasting nutrients, and begin absorbing them, deeply into cells.
Free electrons — whether from the Earth, a pool, or the Revitive — calm the inflammation that blunts nutrient absorption, allowing for true hydration of cells.
Signs of being over-stimulated by the Revitive will nearly always present as symptoms of dehydration or low blood sugar.
These symptoms are very similar to the effects of a sauna, or any other energy-boosting hack (such as light therapy, sunbathing, or even taking thyroid hormone).
These symptoms are usually very easy to balance out yourself, simply by drinking water, taking needed minerals, or eating some food.
Concerning hydration, you could be amazed how much water you’ll need after a more intense session (or multiple sessions in a row) with the Revitive. This is a good thing. In my experience, the body will now better utilize the water you drink.
Keep in mind that a healthy body requires lots of water. As you heal, you might begin needing more water, too. This is also a very good sign. You’ll know your water is hydrating you if you feel hydrated after drinking — if your thirst is “never ending,” this is a sign of high inflammation that needs to be corrected. Free electrons can counteract the inflammation that causes endless thirst.
We’ve mentioned how powerful the Revitive is, yet this methodology — receiving free electrons from the Earth or a device — is still one of the most gentle and holistic approaches we have.
Only those who are quite sensitive to environmental and dietary variables will experience much sensitivity to the Revitive. The first symptom they may notice is usually sleep disruption — in which case they should back off intensity/duration of sessions.
But for those of us who are sensitive, drinking more water and replenishing electrolytes is the way to both enjoy the myriad benefits of the Revitive, and mitigate any minor discomfort along the way to better health.
Personally, I require about 3-4 sessions per day to notice the majority of Revitive’s benefits.
This is easy to achieve, as I can generally find an hour or two to sit down and enjoy the Revitive each day. My favorite time to use the device is while I work, but also when I wake up and before bed.
I feel improved mental clarity, reduced inflammation, and more energy.
This reduced inflammation seems to help digestion and produce deeper sleep at night.
With the increased mental clarity seems to come more creativity and sharper analysis in my day to day work.
I also noticed two lingering sports injuries that I’ve been neglecting for months, one in my wrist and another in my ankle, seemed spontaneously heal up. The ankle was 100% better with days (truly astounding), while the wrist improved each week until better. It also seems like my teeth feel more strong and smooth than before. This is something I will continue to monitor.
I also seem to function much better on inadequate sleep than I formerly did. I’ve been unofficially testing this out lately — sleeping less — and I’m shocked how good I’ll feel on 6 hours of sleep. That would have severely impacted me before the Revitive. Make no mistake, 7-8 hours is still much better than 6, Revitive or not. And why not stack multiple variables in our favor?
In the first few months of use, multiple clients have described positive benefits from the Revitive, including better sleep and better skin. One client mentioned it is better than their grounding mat. Another client said they recommend it highly. Another client reported better digestion, and better tolerance of various gut supplements while using the Revitive.
The Revitive can also power TENS pads, to be used around the body.
My favorite way to use them is on the palms of my hands — one on each palm.
I only use this method on an intensity setting of just 1, or 2.
This allows for a bit more electrical flow to the upper body, especially the hands and arms, but also, potentially the brain.
The Revitive’s benefits are derived from its supply of free electrons.
This is the energy that powers the entire body and all of its biological functions, the same energy the body extracts from food.
Therefore, it is entirely reasonable that we find benefits virtually everywhere, all over and throughout the body, as the result of the electrical flow from the device.
As we discuss in The Body Electric article, there are numerous published studies on PubMed showing dramatic improvements in many basic biomarkers of health — simply from standing on the Earth with bare feet. The Revitive takes that concept and amps it up several notches — significantly providing new free electrons to your entire body.
How well you take advantage of these free electrons is up to you! Any signs of dehydration are the result of something good: more energy in the body. You’ll just need to know what to do in response to the increased energy. The answer is usually more water, more minerals, and possibly more food (if you’ve been undereating).
As with all our endeavors, a strong, balanced foundation will enable you to make more dramatic (and lasting) changes in your health — so don’t forget the pillars of health such as: nutrition, sleep, food, & gut health.
