The Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) is a signal analysis method that separates multi-component signals into single oscillatory modes called intrinsic mode functions (IMFs), each of which can generally be associated to a physical meaning of the process from which the signal is obtained. When the phenomena of mode mixing occur, as a result of the EMD sifting process, the IMFs can lose their physical meaning hindering the interpretation of the results of the analysis. In the paper, "One or Two frequencies? The Empirical Mode Decomposition Answers", Gabriel Rilling and Patrick Flandrin  presented a rigorous mathematical analysis that explains how EMD behaves in the case of a composite two-tones signal and the amplitude and frequency ratios by which EMD will perform a good separation of tones. However, the authors did not propose a solution for separating the neighboring tones that will naturally remain mixed after an EMD. In this paper, based on the findings by Rilling and Flandrin, a method that can separate neighbouring spectral components, that will naturally remain within a single IMF, is presented. This method is based on reversing the conditions by which mode mixing occurs and that were presented in the map by Rilling and Flandrin in the above mentioned paper. Numerical experiments with signals containing closely spaced spectral components shows the effective separation of modes that EMD can perform after this principle is applied. The results verify also the regimes presented in the theoretical analysis by Rilling and Flandrin.
