Royal Rife  

The purpose of this article is not to show another form of healing device, but to show the discoveries and cures Royal Rife made with his apparatus half a century ago. He was a well known scientist because of his breakthrough invention of an extremely powerful microscope and he was very successful in curing certain diseases. He was highly regarded within the scientific community until the medical establishment came down on him and erased him from history. At present there are several attempts in reconstructing his ray tube healing device, but these remain experimental as the original details of Royal Rife's equipment have been lost. Nevertheless it is a fascinating story that gives us a different perspective on what microbes are, and a way to eradicate them.

Biography of Royal Rife

Born 1888 in Elkhorn, Nebraska, he served in the Navy during World War I and was sent to investigate foreign laboratories. He was a brilliant scientist who invented the equipment he needed, if it did not exist. In 1929 he built a microscope capable of staining living viruses with light to make them visible (bioluminescence). Also the first micromanipulators, micro-dissectors and heterodyning ultraviolet microscopes. In the process he won 14 government awards for scientific discoveries and a honorary medical degree from the University of Heidelberg.

His work was supported by millionaires such as Henry Timken. He invented the Universal Microscope with which he became the first person to see a living virus. Rife then identified the human cancer virus and named it “Cryptocides Primordiales”. He inoculated 400 laboratory animals which created tumors in each one. By using his resonance device he eliminated every cancer tumor.

In 1934 Rife and a team of doctors and scientists from leading medical research facilities cured 16 out of 16 cancer patients using the Frequency Machine. Over the next four years the instruments and methods were refined. Some of North America's most brilliant cancer researchers visited Rife's laboratory and became involved in a research committee at U.S.C.

Clinical proof of successful and painless cures from cancer and other microbe-caused diseases increased as clinics in Los Angeles and San Diego slowly documented cases. Additional laboratory verification came from research institutions in San Francisco, Chicago, New Jersey and Montreal. By the late 1930s, energy medicine doctors, using a variety of different electronic approaches, grew in numbers and had formed national associations.

However, the threat to orthodox medicine was too great. Medical officials and societies mounted a furious counterattack against Rife's monumental discovery before the American public could be informed of it. Doctors who were using Rife's instruments to treat cancer and other diseases were threatened with losing their licenses and being thrown into jail. Most surrendered. An energy medicine laboratory complex, which was in the process of verifying Rife's discoveries, was mysteriously burned down, while the owner was in California visiting Rife !

Rife was hauled into court, prevented from leaving for England where leading scientists were prepared to establish an independent testing facility to substantiate the great discovery, and distribute his unique instruments worldwide. All medical journals were censored and one of the greatest scientific and medical discoveries of the 20th century was ruthlessly shoved into a dungeon of history.

Rife's Revolutionary Microscopes

Royal Rife's microscope

Royal Rife first started with creating microscope that could bring better and more magnification than those in existence. Because normal microscopes have limitations due to their optics, he invented a whole new way of magnification. Thus he invented the so-called Universal Prismatic Microscope. It consisted of 5,682 parts and able to achieve resolutions of up to 100,000 diameters. (Typical magnification of a normal light microscope, assuming visible range light, is up to 1500x, and it has limited depth of field)

By 1920, Royal Rife had finished building the world's first high magnification microscope with which life viruses could be seen. 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! With this incredible microscope, Rife became the first human 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 (which can go up to 1,000,000X) instantly kill everything beneath them, viewing only the mummified remains and debris. What the Dr. 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 tumor cells.

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. 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. This allows frequencies to be directed at just the exact microbe attacking the body, without harming any other tissue or organisms. 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. Dr. Royal Rife was thus able to see these otherwise invisible organisms and watch them actively invading tissue cultures. Dr. Royal Rife's discovery enabled him to view organisms that no one else could see with ordinary microscopes.

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. Dr. Royal Rife's brilliance allowed him to overcome this limitation by heterodyning, a technique which became popular in early radio broadcasting. 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 electromagnetic spectrum. This was how Dr. Rife made invisible microbes visible without killing them, a feat which today's electron microscopes still cannot duplicate.

Rife Discovers the Cancer Virus

While examining the life bacteria and viruses through his microscope, Rife thus noticed that each one gave off a distinct light (or color) pattern. So Rife began to experiment with instruments he invented that oscillated at the frequencies he had determined from the organisms (bacteria and viruses) and he discovered that by playing back their own pattern of oscillation, he could destroy them without affecting the tissues around them. In other words, Rife could kill a particular virus or bacterium using electromagnetic rays alone that were absolutely harmless to the host animal, but deadly to the microbe.
In the laboratory Rife found two viruses which he associated with the presence of cancerous tumors. One of these, which he correlated to carcinoma (Cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover body organs), he called the 'BX virus' The other virus, correlated to sarcoma (cancer of the connective tissue like bone, cartilage, fat), he called the 'BY virus'.


He also found that bacteria could transform into cancer causing viruses. Rife implanted his cancer-causing bacteria into rats. Rife made the startling discovery that the bacteria could change into a completely different form if the "medium on which they were living" was slightly altered. In other words, Dr. Rife's cancer causing substance was, in some forms and in association with some environments within the body, deadly. But in other forms and in other environments, benign. His cancer causing substance could be changed back and forth from one to the other. The implications of this discovery are enormous. He claimed quite simply that in certain conditions the cancer factor was inert or neutral, whilst in others it became active.
Pleomorphism was not a new idea. Already at the time of Pasteur (early 1900's) there was a heavy debate about whether or not micro-organism could change form, for example from a virus into a bacteria, sometimes with intermediate forms. Rife was able to prove that this is indeed the case. Furthermore, the changing of one form into another was caused by the change in its environment. Rife said, "In reality, it is not the bacteria themselves that produce the disease, but the chemical constituents of these micro-organisms enacting upon the unbalanced cell metabolism of the human body that in actuality produce the disease. We also believe if the metabolism of the human body is perfectly balanced or poised, it is susceptible to no disease." Rife basically classified pathogenic bacteria into 10 individual groups. He demonstrated that any organism within its group could be transformed morphologically into any other organism within the 10 groups by carefully altering the media in which it was cultured. Of course, this discovery contradicts modern microbiology which teaches that a bacteria's morphology is fixed and unchangeable.
Rife observed that pleomorphism happens when the pH changes in what is now called the field or terrain in the microorganism's host environment. He considered that the field pH changes influenced the microorganisms morphing, causing them to become more pathogenic or more benign depending on the pH factor. This was the precursor to the field or terrain theory as a source of disease that many holistic healers now embrace over the germ theory.

Royal Rife Frequency Machine

As we mentioned before, Rife discovered that each microbe resonates at a particular frequency of the electromagnetic spectrum. By broadcasting this frequency the micro-organism targeted would start to resonate until it shattered and died. He observed this through his microscope.
A radio frequency generator would generate a carrier frequency on which a modulated square wave signal was imposed. The output from the generator was connected through suitable impedance matching circuitry to a plasma discharge tube with one or more noble gases. When the plasma discharge occurred, the tube glowed purplish blue.
Rife obtained the original Mortal Oscillatory Rates (MOR) through a painstaking method of tuning the dial of the audio frequency generator while observing the sample pathogen under his microscope. When a frequency was discovered that demonstrated the ability to devitalize a particular microorganism, its dial position was duly noted and marked. The actual frequencies were determined later after the experimental trials. By the mid 1950s the verified original MOR frequency list included 15 different bacteria and viruses.
