FAQs

Below are a few of the frequently asked questions:

  1. Are these patches safe for children? 
    Yes, these patches are safe to use for anyone of any age.
  2. What about pregnant women? Nursing mothers?
    The only audience that they are not recommended for is pregnant women or nursing mothers as there have been no trials done for this audience. We do know many pregnant women have used them successfully but they are not recommended due to no data on that audience.
  3. Are there any contraindications?
    Yes, there are two – they are not recommended for people with cancer who are on chemotherapy – they should not be used on “chemo days” as they may detox the chemo out of their system. Otherwise they are safe to use on other days. In addition, they are not recommended for people with organ transplants who are on anti-rejection drugs as the drug may be detoxed out of their system as well.
  4. Are they safe for people with serious or chronic health conditions?
    Yes, they are safe for anyone other than what is listed above.
  5. Are they safe to take if I am on medication?
    Yes, they are safe to take if you are on any medication other than chemotherapy (on chemo days only) or on anti-rejection drugs for transplant patients listed above. In fact, many people have been able to get off some of their medications after they were on the patches for a few months or more.
  6. Are they safe to use on pets or other animals?
    Yes. There is one patch called AcuLife that is specifically for horses. None of the other patches have been officially studied for use on animals, but we have successfully used x39 patches on our dogs and cats with incredible results, as many people have. We simply take our discarded x39 patch and put on our dog or cat. You can apply to their skin or even their collar (inside or out if it is made of fabric). The patch will work through a cloth or canvas collar.
  7. Do I have to wear the patches for the rest of my life?
    These patches are restorative, so as your body restores and regenerates, you will feel the benefits. We wear the x39 and x49 patches every day. The others ones we wear only as needed. The founder David Schmidt advises to wear the x39 patch for at least the number of months you have been alive to really notice a difference. For example, if you are 50 years old, wear them for at least 5 months. We say wear the x39 until you want to go back to aging!
