Tesla ImmunoModulatory EMF Resonance (TIME) System

Pilot Study to assess potential relief of symptoms associated with compromised immune system conditions (for example/ Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome) through application of modified waveforms at Tesla coil radio frequencies.

We will be gradually updating this this website as we dedicate it to the continuation of a line of research
initiated by our friend, Mark Bean, an expert in Tesla coils and high energy / frequency devices.

My name is Andrew Bolland, and my education is in Geology (M.S.), with minor concentrations in Physics and Engineering Technology (on the right in the above photo). My wife, Linda (Pharm.D.), and I formed Qualight LLC (a sole proprietorship) approximately 10 years ago as a vehicle to support pure research into room temperature superconductive materials (ongoing research). I operated a small environmental company, Qualight Environmental for several years in southern California to support the research arm of Qualight LLC. When the residential sector our company serviced was affected by the economic downturn, we relocated to the Northeast.

We have a desire to perform a pilot study to assess potential relief of symptoms associated with compromised immune system conditions (for example/ Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome).


In the mid-2000s, our close friend and colleague, Mark Bean (on the left in the above photo), of Las Vegas Nevada (www.ReallyCoolScience.com), was diagnosed with Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. Mark had been hurt in 1995 in a car accident, permanently damaging his spinal column. After a decade of not being able to hold a permanent job, he found himself without health insurance or steady income. He was able to obtain an oral biologic therapy called Imatinib (Gleevec®), and after several months of therapy, his cancer went into remission. However, his cancer eventually developed a resistance to the drug, and the relapse was worse than his initial condition.

Mark and I would often talk about resonant frequencies and how every molecule and physical structure has a natural resonance frequency (like tuning forks). Mark was an expert in high voltage / high frequency systems (mentored by Bill Wysock, of the Model 13M Tesla Magnifier fame, and my education in geology included crystallography (a field of geology studying the characteristics and arrangement of atoms in crystalline solids).

Mark felt he might find some relief from his cancer through the penetrating, non-contact high frequency fields produced by a Tesla coil, if they were tuned to a resonance frequency, near, or at, that of a healthy body cell, if such a frequency existed. The challenge to that hypothesis was that human cells generally range in size from approximately 10 to 100 micrometers, and have different natural resonance frequencies.

Mark eventually designed a modified Tesla coil, which we built and he tested. Over a period of three months, we observed through his oncologist’s notes tumor shrinkage, and an elevation and stabilization of his immune response to within what was considered normal for him.

This device we built had additional success in a small sample population of people with compromised immune system conditions. The results were anecdotal, since we did not use a strict controlled study environment required for a rigorous pilot study. We want to stress that while we found that subjects with late stage cancer benefitted from this device, this sample population had a variety of solid tumors and experienced a variety of standard of care therapy: some were on chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, and all modified their diet or lifestyle to varying degrees. The device did not provide a cure, but rather appeared to strengthen the subject’s immune systems, and in conjunction with prescribed therapy and/or lifestyle modifications, produced a higher level of therapeutic response.

The device Mark and I built is a modified Tesla coil, targeting a specific range of penetrating radio frequency (rf) electromagnetic energy. Tesla coils have no known adverse health effects, except for creating minor amounts of ozone and nitrogen oxides, typical for high energy devices. One potential barrier of this device for use in some situations is that the rf energy can interfere and disable pacemakers, and other sensitive electronic devices.

Nearly ten years later, his legacy is now our hope for a bright future in the realm of building a better understanding of how our immune system functions. Though our friend passed away November of 2013, his death was not from cancer, but rather an unfortunate drug interaction from pain medications prescribed for his damaged spinal column.

Proposal for Campaign:

The goal of this campaign is to build a prototype, scalable device and test it in a controlled environment in order to show proof of concept. We have engaged a leading high voltage / high frequency engineer to build the first of three sequential devices:

The first device, the focus of this campaign, will be a more robust duplicate of the original, which has deteriorated over the years, and can no longer satisfactorily maintain a stable frequency. As with most high voltage devices, the electrodes (spark gaps), high voltage components, and wiring break down over time. This first device will be used to implement an initial pilot study to demonstrate proof of concept.

The initial pilot study will include a cross-section of volunteer subjects with immuno-compromised conditions including (but not limited to) Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune illnesses. We anticipate the initial pilot study to run approximately nine months total - three months for device construction and six months for testing. The initial pilot study will consist of two arms – a short study period lasting three weeks, and an extended study period lasting six weeks. Both arms will involve three sessions per week on alternate days lasting approximately 15 minutes each session. For this initial study we will examine approximately 120 subjects, 60 in each arm.

The first device will cost us $24,000. If we do not raise the full $24,000 in this campaign, the money raised will be applied towards construction of the device, and the device will be completed over a longer period of time as funds become available. The $24,000 includes only construction and shipping costs for the device, and does not include any compensation for our time, cost for testing space, power costs, or other overhead expenditures. Those additional costs will be shouldered by us.


We are calling this our TIME (Tesla IMmunomodulatory EMF Resonance) System. Our hope is that this research will someday be able to give back time for millions of people. For some, it may give time with loved ones. For others, it may buy a life.

We have the potential of helping thousands of people suffering from immune compromised illnesses. As one example, according to the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR1) (2013; 62(44) 869-873), an estimated 52.5 million adults in the United States are reported being told by a doctor that they have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia.

One in five (22.7%) adults in the United States report having doctor diagnosed arthritis (MMWR 2013; 62 (44) 869- 873). An estimated 294,000 children under age 18 have some form of arthritis or rheumatic condition; this represents approximately 1 in every 250 children in the U.S. (Arthritis Care Res 2007; 57: 1439-1445). By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis. (Arthritis & Rheumatism 2006;54(1):226-229).

We are envisioning an opportunity to blaze a new path, exploring our initial findings in high frequency fields in medicine, and transforming lives. In the words of Robert Frost,

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Future Campaigns:

Campaign Two (Digital-based Device) -

Based on a successful initial pilot study, a second device will be a digital-based model that will more closely resemble a medical-grade device. By moving to a digital system, the “scary effect” (noise and sparks) associated with Tesla coils can be minimized without affecting the waveform or energy penetration of the system; also various nuisance effects, such as ozone and nitrogen oxides production, can be mitigated. This device will also have some variability in frequency range based on the results of the initial pilot study, and the second study will include a larger test group.

We are currently considering a secondary pilot study involving companion animals (cats, dogs) with compromised immune system conditions, including cancer and feline leukemia. This secondary study is being considered in partnership with regional veterinarian oncology facilities, and only with the second device, once the noise and ozone / nitrogen oxides production issues have been mitigated. However, the specifics of this study have not been established at this time.

The second device will cost us $35,000, and will require a second campaign.

Campaign Three (Market Device) -

Based on a successful (larger and more comprehensive) second pilot study, a third device will require the benefit of large scale investors to design, build, and test a medical grade device, which we envision being used in acute care facilities, medical and veterinarian offices, and field hospitals.
