Imagine, for a moment, that you have spent more than two decades in
painfully laborious research, that you have discovered an incredibly
simple, electronic approach to curing literally every disease on the
planet caused by viruses and bacteria.
Indeed, it is a discovery
that would end the pain and suffering of countless millions and
change life on Earth forever. Certainly, the medical world would
rush to embrace you with every imaginable accolade and financial
You would think so,
Unfortunately, arguably the greatest medical genius in all recorded
history suffered a fate literally the opposite of the foregoing
logical scenario. In fact, the history of medicine is replete with
stories of genius betrayed by backward thought and jealously, but
most pathetically, by greed and money.
In the nineteenth century, Semmelweiss struggled mightily to
convince surgeons that it was a good idea to sterilize their
instruments and use sterile surgical procedures. Pasteur was
ridiculed for years for his theory that germs could cause disease.
Scores of other medical visionaries went through hell for simply
challenging the medical status quo of day, including such legends
Roentgen and his
promoting the 'absurd' idea of anesthesia
Harvey for his
theory of the circulation of blood
many others in
recent decades including:
medicine resents and seeks to neutralize and/or destroy those who
challenge its beliefs. Often, the visionary who challenges it pays a
heavy price for his 'heresy.'
So, you have just discovered a new therapy which can eradicate any
microbial disease but, so far, you and your amazing cure aren't very
popular. What do you do next?
Well, certainly the
research foundations and teaching institutions would welcome news of
your astounding discovery. Won't they be thrilled to learn you have
a cure for the very same diseases they are receiving hundreds of
millions of dollars per year to investigate? Maybe not, if it means
the end of the gravy train. These people have mortgages to pay and
families to support.
On second thought,
forget the research foundations.
Perhaps you should take your discovery to the pharmaceutical
industry; certainly it would be of great interest to those
protectors of humanity, right? But remember, you have developed a
universal cure which makes drugs obsolete, so the pharmaceutical
industry just might be less than thrilled to hear about your work.
In fact, the big shots might even make it certain that your human
disease-ending technology never sees the light of day, by preventing
it from becoming licensed by the regulatory agencies.
Now, assuming your amazing cure is an electronic instrument, the
only cost of using it is electricity. And it is absolutely harmless
to patients, who can recover without losing their hair, the family
home, and their life savings.
So, with your technology, there is no
longer any reason for people with cancer to pay over $300,000 per
patient - to become deathly ill from chemotherapy, radiation
treatments, and the mutilation of surgery. It sounds like you won't
find many friends and support among practicing oncologists,
radiologists, and surgeons, doesn't it?
You might try the hospitals and big clinics. But how thrilled are
they going to be about a therapy administered in any doctor's
office; which reverses illness before the patient has to be
hospitalized? Thanks to you, the staffs of these institutions will
essentially be out of work.
Well then, how about the insurance companies? Surely, they would be
delighted to save the expense of hospitalization - at least the
companies which haven't invested in hospitals, where the staff is
now sitting around waiting for someone to break a leg or be in a car
accident... and the ones who don't lose policyholders as a result of
your invention...and the companies which aren't trying to divest
their pharmaceutical stock. Oh well, forget the insurance companies,
It looks like you just might have a little problem with the medical
Probably the only friends you'll have will be the patients and those
progressive doctors who see change as an opportunity, rather than a
threat to their established money-making monopoly. Those people will
love you. But they don't call the shots.
What follows, now, is the story of exactly such a sensational
therapy and what happened to it. In one of the blackest episodes in
recorded history, this remarkable electronic therapy was sabotaged
and buried by a ruthless group of men. It has re-emerged in the
underground medical/alternative health world only since the
This is the story of
Royal Raymond Rife and his fabulous discoveries and electronic
If you have never heard of Rife before, prepare to be angered and
incredulous at what this great man achieved for all of us only to
have it practically driven from the face of the planet. But, reserve
your final judgment and decision until after you have read this.
Of course, some may regard this as just an amusing piece of fiction.
However, for those who are willing to do some investigating on their
own, there will be mentioned several highly-respected doctors and
medical authorities who worked with Rife as well as some of the
remarkable technical aspects of his creation.
However, in the final analysis, the only real way to determine if
such a revolutionary therapy exists is to experience it yourself.
The medical literature is full of rigged 'double-blind' clinical
research tests, the results of which are often determined in advance
by the vested corporate interests involved.
and other regulatory and licensing procedures and guidelines
are observed, it is your privilege to experiment with this harmless
therapy. So let's now turn to the story of the most amazing medical
pioneer of our century.
Royal Raymond Rife was a brilliant scientist born in 1888 and died
in 1971. After studying at Johns Hopkins, Rife developed technology
which is still commonly used today in the fields of optics,
electronics, radiochemistry, biochemistry, ballistics, and aviation.
It is a fair statement that Rife practically developed bioelectric
He received 14 major awards and honors and was given an honorary
Doctorate by the University of Heidelberg for his work. During the
66 years that Rife spent designing and building medical instruments,
he worked for Zeiss Optics, the U.S. Government, and several private
Most notable was millionaire
Henry Timkin, of
Timkin roller bearing fame.
Because Rife was self-educated in so many different fields, he
intuitively looked for his answers in areas beyond the rigid
scientific structure of his day. He had mastered so many different
disciplines that he literally had, at his intellectual disposal, the
skills and knowledge of an entire team of scientists and technicians
from a number of different scientific fields. So, whenever new
technology was needed to perform a new task, Rife simply invented
and then built it himself.
Rife's inventions include a heterodyning ultraviolet microscope, a
micro-dissector, and a micro-manipulator. When you thoroughly
understand Rife's achievements, you may well decide that he has the
most gifted, versatile, scientific mind in human history.
By 1920, Rife had finished building the world's first virus
By 1933, he had
perfected that technology and had constructed the incredibly complex
Universal Microscope, which had nearly 6,000 different parts and was
capable of magnifying objects 60,000 times their normal size.
this incredible microscope, Rife became the first human being to
actually see a live virus, and until quite recently, the Universal
Microscope was the only one which was able view live viruses.
Modern electron microscopes instantly kill everything beneath them,
viewing only the mummified remains and debris. What the Rife
microscope can see is the bustling activity of living viruses as
they change form to accommodate changes in environment, replicate
rapidly in response to carcinogens, and transform normal cells into
But how was Rife able to accomplish this, in an age when electronics
and medicine were still just evolving? Here are a few technical
details to placate the skeptics...
Rife painstakingly identified the individual spectroscopic signature
of each microbe, using a slit spectroscope attachment. Then, he
slowly rotated block quartz prisms to focus light of a single
wavelength upon the microorganism he was examining. This wavelength
was selected because it resonated with the spectroscopic signature
frequency of the microbe based on the now-established fact that
every molecule oscillates at its own distinct frequency.
The atoms that come together to form a molecule are held together in
that molecular configuration with a covalent energy bond which both
emits and absorbs its own specific electromagnetic frequency. No two
species of molecule have the same electromagnetic oscillations or
energetic signature. Resonance amplifies light in the same way two
ocean waves intensify each other when they merge together.
The result of using a resonant wavelength is that micro-organisms
which are invisible in white light suddenly become visible in a
brilliant flash of light when they are exposed to the color
frequency that resonates with their own distinct spectroscopic
signature. Rife was thus able to see these otherwise invisible
organisms and watch them actively invading tissues cultures.
Rife's discovery enabled
him to view organisms that no one else could see with ordinary
More than 75% of the organisms Rife could see with his Universal
Microscope are only visible with ultra-violet light. But ultraviolet
light is outside the range of human vision, it is 'invisible' to us.
Rife's brilliance allowed him to overcome this limitation by
heterodyning, a technique which became popular in early radio
He illuminated the
microbe (usually a virus or bacteria) with two different wavelengths
of the same ultraviolet light frequency which resonated with the
spectral signature of the microbe. These two wavelengths produced
interference where they merged. This interference was, in effect, a
third, longer wave which fell into the visible portion of the
This was how Rife made
invisible microbes visible without killing them, a feat which
today's electron microscopes cannot duplicate.
By this time, Rife was so far ahead of his colleagues of the
1930's(!), that they could not comprehend what he was doing without
actually traveling to San Diego to Rife's laboratory to look through
his Virus Microscope for themselves. And many did exactly that.
One was Virginia Livingston. She eventually moved from New
Jersey to Rife's Point Loma (San Diego) neighborhood and became a
frequent visitor to his lab. Virginia Livingston is now often given
the credit for identifying the organism which causes human cancer,
beginning with research papers she began publishing in 1948.
In reality, Royal Rife had identified the human cancer virus
first... in 1920!
Rife then made over 20,000 unsuccessful attempts to
transform normal cells into tumor cells. He finally succeeded when
he irradiated the cancer virus, passed it through a cell-catching
ultra-fine porcelain filter, and injected it into lab animals. Not
content to prove this virus would cause one tumor, Rife then created
400 tumors in succession from the same culture.
He documented everything
with film, photographs, and meticulous records. He named the cancer
virus 'Cryptocides primordiales.'
Virginia Livingston, in her papers, renamed it Progenitor
Cryptocides. Royal Rife was never even mentioned in her papers.
In fact, Rife seldom got credit for his monumental discoveries. He
was a quiet, unassuming scientist, dedicated to expanding his
discoveries rather than to ambition, fame, and glory. His distaste
for medical politics (which he could afford to ignore thanks to
generous trusts set up by private benefactors) left him at a
disadvantage later, when powerful forces attacked him. Coupled with
the influence of the pharmaceutical industry in purging his papers
from medical journals, it is hardly surprising that few heave heard
of Rife today.
Meanwhile, debate raged between those who had seen viruses changing
into different forms beneath Rife's microscopes, and those who had
not. Those who condemned without investigation, such as the
influential Dr. Thomas Rivers, claimed these forms didn't exist.
Because his microscope did not reveal them, Rivers argued that there
was "no logical basis for belief in this theory."
The same argument is
used today in evaluating many other 'alternative' medical
treatments; if there is no precedent, then it must not be valid.
Nothing can convince a closed mind. Most had never actually looked
though the San Diego microscopes... air travel in the 1930's was
uncomfortable, primitive, and rather risky.
So, the debate about the
life cycle of viruses was resolved in favor of those who never saw
it (even modern electron microscopes show frozen images, not the
life cycle of viruses in process).
Nevertheless, many scientists and doctors have since confirmed
Rife's discovery of the cancer virus and its pleomorphic nature,
using dark field techniques, the Naessens microscope, and
Rife also worked with the top scientists and doctors of
his day who also confirmed or endorsed various areas of his work.

Rife ignored the debate,
preferring to concentrate on refining his method of destroying these
tiny killer viruses. He used the same principle to kill them, which
made them visible: resonance.
By increasing the intensity of a frequency which resonated naturally
with these microbes, Rife increased their natural oscillations until
they distorted and disintegrated from structural stresses. Rife
called this frequency 'the mortal oscillatory rate,' or 'MOR',
and it did no harm whatsoever to the surrounding tissues.
Today's Rife instruments use harmonics of the frequencies shown on
the display screen. The wavelength of the actual frequency shown
(770hz, 880hz, etc.) is too long to do the job.
This principle can be illustrated by using an intense musical note
to shatter a wine glass: the molecules of the glass are already
oscillating at some harmonic (multiple) of that musical note; they
are in resonance with it. Because everything else has a different
resonant frequency, nothing but the glass is destroyed. There are
literally hundreds of trillions of different resonant frequencies,
and every species and molecule has its very own.
It took Rife many years, working 48 hours at a time, until he
discovered the frequencies which specifically destroyed herpes,
polio, spinal meningitis, tetanus, influenza, and an immense number
of other dangerous disease organisms.
In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a Special
Medical Research Committee to bring terminal cancer patients from
Pasadena County Hospital to Rife's San Diego Laboratory and clinic
for treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned
to examine the patients - if still alive - in 90 days.
After the 90 days of treatment, the Committee concluded that 86.5%
of the patients had been completely cured. The treatment was then
adjusted and the remaining 13.5% of the patients also responded
within the next four weeks.
The total recovery rate using Rife's
technology was 100%.
On November 20, 1931, forty-four of the nation's most respected
medical authorities honored Royal Rife with a banquet billed as The
End To All Diseases at the Pasadena estate of Dr. Milbank Johnson.
But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and
scientists were denying that they had ever met Rife. What happened
to make so many brilliant men have complete memory lapses? It seems
that news of Rife's miracles with terminal patients had reached
other ears. Remember our hypothetical question at the beginning of
this report: What would happen if you discovered a cure for
everything? You are now about to find out....
At first, a token attempt was made to buy out Rife.
who had acquired the entire stock of the American Medical
Association by 1934, sent an attorney to Rife with 'an offer you
can't refuse.' Rife refused. We many never know the exact terms of
this offer. But we do know the terms of the offer Fishbein made to
Harry Hoxsey for control of his herbal cancer remedy.
Fishbein's associates would receive all profits for nine years and
Hoxey would receive nothing.
Then, if they were
satisfied that it worked, Hoxsey would begin to receive 10% of the
profits. Hoxsey decided that he would rather continue to make all
the profits himself. When Hoxsey turned Fishbein down, Fishbein used
his immensely powerful-political connections to have Hoxsey arrested
125 times in a period of 16 months.
The charges (based on practice
without a license) were always thrown out of court, but the
harassment drove Hoxsey insane.
But Fishbein must have realized that this strategy would backfire
with Rife. First, Rife could not be arrested like Hoxsey for
practicing without a license. A trial on trumped-up charges would
mean that testimony supporting Rife would be introduced by prominent
medical authorities working with Rife. And the defense would
undoubtedly take the opportunity to introduce evidence such as the
1934 medical study done with USC.
The last thing in the
world that the pharmaceutical industry wanted was a public trial
about a painless therapy that cured 100% of the terminal cancer
patients and cost nothing to use but a little electricity. It might
give people the idea that they didn't need drugs.
And finally, Rife had spent decades accumulating meticulous evidence
of his work, including film and stop-motion photographs. No,
different tactics were needed...
The first incident was the gradual pilfering of components,
photographs, film, and written records from Rife's lab. The culprit
was never caught.
Then, while Rife struggled to reproduce his missing data (in a day
when photocopies and computers were not available), someone
vandalized his precious virus microscopes. Pieces of the 5,682 piece
Universal microscope were stolen. Earlier, an arson fire had
destroyed the multi-million dollar Burnett Lab in New Jersey, just
as the scientists there were preparing to announce confirmation of
But the final blow came later, when police illegally
confiscated the remainder of Rife's 50 years of research.
Then in 1939, agents of a family which controlled the drug industry
assisted Philip Hoyland in a frivolous lawsuit against his
own partners in the Beam Ray Corporation. This was the only
company manufacturing Rife's frequency instruments (Rife was not a
partner). Hoyland lost, but his assisted legal assault had the
desired effect: the company was bankrupted by legal expenses. And
during the Great Depression, this meant that commercial production
of Rife's frequency instruments ceased completely.
And remember what a universal cure meant to hospitals and research
foundations? Doctors who tried to defend Rife lost their foundations
grants and hospital privileges.
On the other hand, big money was spent ensuring that doctors who had
seen Rife's therapy would forget what they saw. Almost no price was
too much to suppress it. Remember that, today, treatment of a single
cancer patient averages over $300,000. It's BIG business.
Thus, Arthur Kendall, the Director of the Northwestern
School of Medicine who worked with Rife on the cancer virus,
accepted almost a quarter of a million dollars to suddenly 'retire'
in Mexico. That was an exorbitant amount of money in the Depression.
Dr. George Dock, another prominent figure who collaborated
with Rife, was silenced with an enormous grant, along with the
highest honors the American Medical Association could bestow.
Between the carrots and the sticks, everyone except Dr. Couche
and Dr. Milbank Johnson gave up Rife's work and went back to
To finish the job, the medical journals, support almost entirely by
drug company revenues and controlled by the AMA, refused to publish
any paper by anyone on Rife's therapy. Therefore, an entire
generation of medical students graduated into practice without ever
once hearing of Rife's breakthroughs in medicine.
The magnitude of such an insane crime eclipses every mass murder in
history. Cancer picks us off quietly... but by 1960 the casualties
from this tiny virus exceeded the carnage of all the wars America
ever fought. In 1989, it was estimated that 40% of us will
experience cancer at some time in our lives.
In Rife's lifetime, he had witnessed the progress of civilization
from horse-and-buggy travel to jet planes. In that same time, he saw
the epidemic of cancer increase from 1 in 24 Americans in 1905 to 1
in 3 in 1971 when Rife died.
He also witnessed the phenomenal growth of the American Cancer
Society, the Salk Foundation, and many others collecting hundreds of
millions of dollars for diseases that were cured long before in his
own San Diego laboratories. In one period, 176,500 cancer drugs were
submitted for approval. Any that showed 'favorable' results in only
one-sixth of one percent of the cases being studied could be
Some of these drugs had
a mortality rate of 14-17%. When death came from the drug, not the
cancer, the case was recorded as a 'complete' or 'partial remission'
because the patient didn't actually die from the cancer. In reality,
it was a race to see which would kill the patient first: the drug or
The inevitable conclusion reached by Rife was that his life-long
labor and discoveries had not only been ignored but probably would
be buried with him. At that point, he ceased to produce much of
anything and spent the last third of his life seeking oblivion in
alcohol. It dulled the pain and his acute awareness of half a
century of wasted effort - ignored - while the unnecessary suffering
of millions continued so that a vested few might profit.
they did, and profit they do.
In 1971, Royal Rife died from a combination of valium and
alcohol at the age of 83. Perhaps his continual exposure to his own
Rife frequencies helped his body endure abuse for so many years.
Fortunately, his death was not the end of his electronic therapy.
few humanitarian doctors and engineers reconstructed his frequency
instruments and kept his genius alive. Rife technology became public
knowledge again in 1986 with the publication of
The Cancer Cure That
Worked, by Barry Lynes, and other material about Royal Rife
and his monumental work.
There is wide variation in the cost, design, and quality of the
modern portable Rife frequency research instruments available.
Costs vary from about
$1200 to $3600 with price being no legitimate indicator of the
technical competence in the design of the instrument or performance
of the instrument. Some of the most expensive units have serious
technical limitations and are essentially a waste of money. At the
other extreme, some researchers do get crude results from
inexpensive simple, unmodified frequency generators, but this is
just as misguided as spending too much money.
Without the proper
modifications, the basic frequency generator gives only minimal and
inconsistent results. Please recall that the actual destruction of
the viruses and bacteria, etc. is not accomplished by the frequency
displayed on these cheap generators, but by certain shorter
harmonics of that particular frequency which are often blocked by
the crudity of a cheap and rudimentary instrument itself.
This very problem led Rife to ultimately abandon the 'ray tube'
design in favor of today's version.
The newer technology applies the
frequencies and their harmonics to the body through the use of
hand-held, footplate, or stick-on electrodes. Proper frequency
exposure and flushing of the body with large amounts of clean, pure
water is critical to achieve the kind of results Rife got. These
procedures are fully explained in the manuals of the best units on
So, unless you would be satisfied with sporadic results for minor
conditions, it is suggested you use only the highest quality
equipment and only the proper, proven procedures in your personal
research. If you do, you may discover that nothing can approach what
can be achieved through the application of these safe, time-tested
frequencies (many for over 65 years) - and all without drugs,
surgery, or radiation.
One day, the name of Royal Raymond Rife may ascend to its
rightful place as the giant of modern medical science. Until that
time, his fabulous technology remains available only to the people
who have the interest to seek it out.
While perfectly legal
for veterinarians to use to save the lives of animals, Rife's
brilliant frequency therapy remains taboo to orthodox mainstream
medicine because of the continuing threat it poses to the
international pharmaceutical medical monopoly that controls the
lives - and deaths - of the vast majority of the people on this
