Welcome to Phoenix Rising!
Created in 2008, Phoenix Rising is the largest and oldest forum dedicated to furthering the understanding of and finding treatments for complex chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), long COVID, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and allied diseases.

I am getting no effect from it now at all, brain fog is returning, not getting the headaches or any effect after treatment. Urine dipslides are clean of bacteria at the moment, other urine tests unchanged.
just checking - when you say that brainfog is returning - do you mean exposing the kidney to the device you used actually improved brainfog/ other symptoms for a while - as so far i had understood that you had only experienced some degree of worsening afterward - and while this was decreasing each time - i hadn't realised you had seen improvements also
in that case the compressible medium ( blue tack ) between the primary driven mass - the moving element of the loudspeaker) and a secondary moving element ( the glass jar lid ) will have further affects on the resulting power output of the whole system into the intended medium ( human body)
I am not stopping I'll carry on even if its not doing anything since I don't think its harmful, I feel it may be a bit like antiobiotics and you shouldn't stop just because you feel better that is just the corner being turned and you need to finish the course (in this case I have no idea how long that is!).
makes sense - the driver is better for lower frequencies in any case - so that is most likely the majority of the sound heard through the table - unless the table surface is breaking up and resonating in a non-linear way ( entirely possible ) - and i would expect the larger amplitude of the lower frequencies to be damped less than the higher frequencies. its generally easier to damp higher frequency / shorter wavelength sounds with absorptive materials than larger frequency / longer wavelength ones.For audio frequencies, Blu Tack seems to make little difference. When playing music through surface like a desk, the resonance loudspeaker is almost as loud when there is Blu Tack on it, compared to when it is placed directly on the surface. Although I can only hear up to around 10 kHz.
One thing you can consider, maybe at a later date, is changing the frequency, and also the volume.
The 18 kHz sine wave you are using is near the 20 kHz end of the frequency range of your device, but if you reduce the frequency to say 15 kHz, you may get a more powerful output, since devices tend to produce a stronger output in the middle of their frequency range, compared to at the ends.
It's also possible that different frequencies may work better or worse on biofilms.
i found the idea interesting - as i haven't heard of any other compelling explanations for this feature of our biology
I wonder if the opening of the tight junctions during exercise is to allow more sugar, water and nutrient absorption, which you would need if you are expending energy.
in their experiments with knock out mice etc and diseased humans - the usual outcome from impairing these membrane in ways that increases the permeability - is increased protein in the blood
