Measuring frequency

  1. Feb 12, 2009 #1
    I am newbie in this forum as well as in this field.

    Recently, I learned human body has certain frequency.
    I want to experiment measuring the frequency, volt, current
    upon the human body.

    any recommended equipment and the best way to measure all three?
    1. frequency
    2. volt
    3. currency

    Thanks -

    May I ask as to what sources you are basing your question.
    This would greatly help in responsible comments from us.

    My body has a frequency. The doctor measures it every time I go.

    I am just reading a book. It has a human body has a very minute frequency, voltage, etc. I just want to measure myself. That's all.

    If I want to measure the voltage of my body, how should I locate the voltmeter?
    If I want to measure the voltage different over time, I heard I could use oscilloscope.
    But, then, how should I locate the probe? Hummm.

    Still puzzling -

    Skeptic2, you kidding - Your doctor is physicist? Heart rate? You are talking about? Ho-Ho-Ho.

    You need to supply us an exact references. This will not do.

    Please write the author, title, book publisher, and year it was published. This is the type of citation that we require on here.

    It is so strange. I can find this information in wiki.
    I have already found. Why they need for reference? The question you asked is more skeptic. Rather pushing me out from this forum, I presume.

    The two links given seem to be about completely different subjects. The Wikipedia page is about infrasound (produced by external sources) and the human body's reaction to it. The blog post is about electrical frequencies of some kind that are supposedly associated with the human body, foods, etc.

    I haven't found any references to this in legitimate-looking medical sources, so I strongly suspect that this is just another example of medical crackpottery.
