Oh, cool! I wasn't sure if anyone would respond to me. Thank you!
I'll take a look at the thread, and I was definitely planning on getting the book, as everyone says it is an essential.
Yeah, it'd probably be a better idea to get it beforehand, but I kind of wanted to just jump right in. Bad habit of mine.
As for the EMEM5A, the price, what I should get, new or used, I don't know. I came across a site that's selling (building) them for $550 shipped.
But, I've been in contact with the seller, gathering a little information, and, apparently, the unit was purchased in 2004, and was made by a Mr. Dan Tracy. I believe that's the inventor, right? I like that.
Plus, this unit appears to have two coils, whereas the one from the site only has one. I'll have to look into how much of a difference that makes, but it definitely seems like it could be significant.
It is more appealing in those rights, but my biggest concern with the used unit is whether or not time has taken its toll on it. I'm wondering how long these are designed to last, all the components (bulb especially). 2004 was quite awhile ago now.
Though, there's the 30 day refund window the builders offer, which I would not get if I purchased it used.
But, yeah.. I'll do some more looking at the information, ask a couple questions in the Rife discussion thread, etc.
I appreciate you guys.

I would advise getting the book first. Also, new would be better. You don't say which kind the one you're considering is.
Even more important, from my perspective, and many others, too, I would strongly suggest getting a Lyme Literate Doctor (Finding a Doctor forum here) and doing antibiotics.
I didn't do that when I was first diagnosed, and spent 3- 3-1/2 years doing rifing (several kinds of machines), herbs, etc. I had horrific die-off reactions, did a lot of detox, etc. BUT I only got horribly worse with a lot of permanent damage.
When I finally did antibiotics, I finally started to get better. Plus, it was easier to handle than everything I had done prior! Not always easy, of course.
You can always do rifing, etc. later on, when you've gotten better.
These infections are serious business, and trying to do it without the help of an LLMD is really tough, and not necessarily the best course of action IMO.
Also, really do your research well on which LLMD you chose, both here and with local Lyme Support Groups. There is a button on the left that takes you to your local groups that are online, and
also in-person. It's also worth traveling to go to the best LLMD you can afford, all depending on your finances, how sick you are, etc.
