More than 50 years ago The Beach Boys crooned “pickin’ up good vibrations.” And now, electromedicine is being embraced because its “good vibrations” are becoming more prominent in cancer research.

Did you know, electronic frequencies have long been considered a viable option for treating disease? Although electromedicine is widely used in Europe, it is less known in the United States. Fortunately, electromedicine is becoming more widely accepted. Health professionals are expanding their practice (and their success rate) with safe, holistic technologies.

In 1987, Barry Lynes wrote The Cancer Cure That Worked, a biographical account of microbiologist Dr. Royal Rife’s life and work, including detailed, dated records of the events which occurred, and in-depth accounts from the people involved.

Rife’s World of Electromedicine, a sequel to The Cancer Cure That Worked, was published in 2009. It is a bird’s-eye view summary of the same time period and events.

Rife’s World is an expository piece that includes brief, targeted chapters addressing each aspect of Rife’s era, utilizing piercing, specific, and direct quotes and excerpts from historical documents including magazine and newspaper articles, court transcripts, Rife’s own statements, and the eye-witness accounts of those who were present during Rife’s lifelong achievements.

The Flexner Report
Abraham Flexner was not a doctor, but this school teacher and educational theorist from Louisville, Kentucky, has had a more significant impact on modern medicine than just about anyone else. Though institutions such as Johns Hopkins were already implementing “modern principles” into their work, most medical schools had yet to subscribe to the paradigms put forth in the Flexner Report. So what Flexner did was to attempt to align medical education under a set of norms that emphasized laboratory research and the patenting of medicine — both of which would serve to further enrich the estates of the entrepreneurs who funded Flexner’s 1910 report: John Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and others.
Birth of Big Pharma

Additionally, the book explains what more than 20 years’ additional research and document retrieval by a dedicated grassroots group have unearthed. Some of the previously missing, key factors in the suppressed and censored cure for cancer were lost or even locked away in physicians’ closets for decades in order to prevent censors from destroying overwhelming evidence.

Educational theorist Abraham Flexner in 1910 published what’s known as the Flexner Report, a book-length summary titled Medical Education in the United States and Canada. This report changed the face of medicine. It was the birth of Big Pharma.

Two decades later, in the early 1930s, the cause of cancer was discovered. Rife named the cancer microbe “BX.” Laboratory verification of the cause of cancer was done hundreds of times with mice in order to be absolutely certain.

In 1934, the scientist who made the historic discovery then worked with five of America’s most prominent physicians in order to test the cure for cancer in a well-organized cancer clinical trial managed by a special medical research committee of the University of Southern California.

Sixteen cancer patients competently diagnosed as hopelessly terminal were brought to La Jolla, California. There they were treated with a revolutionary electro-medicine that painlessly, non-invasively destroyed only the cancer-causing microbe.

After three months of this science-based therapy, all the cancer patients were diagnosed as clinically cured. Sufficient eye-witness statements in writing and documents by prominent scientists who measured the tumor shrinkage exist. During the next 4-5 years, the original electronic technology was improved, tested, and used in continuing clinics in three locations – Los Angeles, Pasadena, and San Diego. A steadily growing case history record of cancer cures resulted.

So … what happened to the research? Lynes’ book delves into the sinister doings of the American Medical Association, which was in cahoots with the Flexner Report financial backers. In a big-picture sense, Rife’s work being quelled was the first notable example of Big Pharma manipulating the medicine field.

As health journalist, S.D. Wells notes in the eBook 25 Amazing (and Disturbing) Facts About the Hidden History of Medicine, “The Flexner Report was conveniently titled Medical Education in the United States and Canada and the 22-page control ‘mechanism' was more or less a Teamsters union, and medical schools in the U.S. were cut in half by the Flexner Report in less than 15 years, from 160 to 80, and then down below 70 by World War II. This concentrated control is the direct cause of the majority of problems with healthcare today.”

At the time, Rife created an entirely new science using color as the means of identifying the unique microbe responsible for a specific disease, and the frequency device that would kill only the specific targeted pathogen (germ or microbe). However, neither Rife nor his supporters had the awareness of the obstacles or the greedy opposition determined to prevent Rife’s new science from being developed and publicly accepted.

“An electronic frequency to devitalize the organism, the successful treatment of cancer. No tissue is destroyed. No pain is felt. No sensation is noticed,” Rife noted in his speech on the History of the Development of a Successful Treatment for Cancer in 1953. “A tube lights up and 3 minutes later the treatment is completed. … The body then recovers itself naturally from the toxic effect. … Several disease forms may be treated simultaneously.”

Instead, because bureaucrats kowtowed to greed, the cost was suffering and death for countless American cancer patients. How could a responsible society have permitted the two primary health agencies – the Food and Drug Administration and the National Cancer Institute — to remain on such a wrong course for so many decades? Honest testing of Rife’s new science was never done by FDA or NCI officials.

But what if Rife's machine actually … worked? The efficacy of Rife's work has been debated for decades. Those with a financial stake in orthodox medicine say electromedicine is wishful thinking. Others, including scientists currently working with electromedicine, believe Rife was on target. The answer may be closer than we think …

Before exploring electromedicine, let's start with cancer — what causes it, the various types of electromedicine devices, and protocols that employ electromedicine.

What causes cancer?

Think about cancer on two levels:

  • Systemic level — what conditions in the body allowed cancer to grow out of control and how do we deal with this issue?
  • Cellular level — why does a healthy cell become cancerous?

In many cases, the immune system can get rid of these microbes, but some types of tapeworms, flukes, and fungus, etc., cannot be killed by the immune system because the microbes are not accessible by the immune system.

The approach of orthodox medicine, however, is to severely damage the immune system with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. This makes the imbalance even worse because these things damage the immune system and do a very poor job of targeting the cancer cells and do an even worse job of killing the microbes in the organs.

Is it any wonder that alternative cancer treatments, when administered by experts, have a higher cure rate than orthodox medicine? Most natural cancer treatments include immune builders to kill cancer cells. Some protocols also include things to clean the blood of microbes, which also will supercharge the immune system.

Because the root cause of cancer is a weak immune system, you cannot cut cancer out. You have to deal with the root cause of cancer.

Electromedicine devices fall into one of three categories:

  • Designed to kill microbes in the bloodstream, lymph system, etc.
  • Designed to kill microbes which are inside the cancer cell.
  • Designed to kill microbes and parasites in the organs to energize organs and the immune system to deal with the root cause of cancer.

Electromedicine devices cannot kill cancer cells directly; the devices generally cannot differentiate between a cancer cell and a normal cell. However, newer protocols are being researched which use minerals to allow an electromedicine device to target cancer cells (e.g. Kanzius).

Rife designed his device to kill microbes which were inside of the cancer cells. That is why his device had a “carrier frequency.” If you can kill all of the microbes inside the cancer cells, the cancer cells will be able to restore their metabolism and revert to normal cells.

In the February/March 2008 edition of the Townsend Letter, Nenah Sylver, P.hD., said the electromedicine modalities that have emerged:

  • are effective;
  • are non-invasive;
  • support the body's innate ability to heal (instead of substituting for its natural functions);
  • are fairly easy to use, by laypeople as well as professionals;
  • can be utilized during the course of a lifetime (since they address many conditions);
  • can be used with more than one person; and
  • are relatively inexpensive, considering their range and scope.

The FDA has got a bee in its bonnet about Rife machines, and it's rather unjust actually because the original Rife machine was OK.

Prof. Keith Scott-Mumby

‘Rife has gone mainstream'

Prof. Keith Scott-Mumby, who earned a Bachelor of Medicine in the United Kingdom, which is the equivalent medical degree in the United States, promotes nutrition as a building block in the fight against cancer. However, everyone has an opinion on what “healthy” means. Nonetheless, a balanced diet provides your body with the vital nutrients it needs to build and maintain healthy cells, tissues, and organs, which are crucial for proper growth and development.

“[With cancer] there are three main issues. As you know, diet and nutrition — if you're eating crap you're not gonna survive long anyway, whether it's cancer that gets you, or heart disease, or whatever,” Mumby said. “[The second issue is] you've got to do a chemical cleanup. The third and most important one that often is forgotten is the emotional toxicity.”

As the patient is addressing diet, nutrition, and environmental and emotional toxicity, the cancer protocol is important. Today, electromedicine is being researched, studies are being published — and insurance covers some forms of electromedicine.

“If you go to [PubMed] and type in irreversible electroporation there are lots and lots of papers that will come up, which is very good news, of course,” Mumby noted. “As I said, it's kind of like Rife has gone mainstream.”

Mumby does point out that Rife's clinical — only 16 patients — leaves a lot of science on the table. “That would be considered pathetically inadequate in today's science,” he said. “But all the mystique and magic [about] Rife's name is built up around these 16 patients … it's a bit strange really, but I do accept them.

“I don't think anyone can argue that it did what it said it did,” Mumby added. “The thing is the technology got lost, John Marsh clearly didn't understand it. Philip Highland went and died, so it kinda died with him a little bit. But some modern wizards have managed to take it apart and finally establish what these machines were really about.

“There was no authentic Rife machine for over 40 years, and it's only just been discovered what authentic Rife meant. As I said, there are questions of carrier waves and sideband frequencies. They're simply audio frequencies, like the MOR. Rife MOR was supposed to be 1.6 megahertz, but without using the harmonics of that or using the carrier waves to deliver it, all of that's rather meaningless. Just saying “Well, I did it and it cured me” is not science. It doesn't prove anything.

“I don't want to labor it too much, but just say there has not been for four decades any authentic Rife machines, but they're just coming into view now,” Mumby continued. “What I've found is people that understand this and make these things are running scared. They won't allow their names to be used. … They're terrified of the FDA, quite rightly, because the FDA has got a bee in its bonnet about Rife machines, and it's rather unjust actually because the original Rife machine was OK.”

Despite the potential political fallout from the FDA surrounding “Rife,” Mumby said mainstream medicine has begun to revisit the mechanics of Rife's machine.

“It's known by this posh name of ‘irreversible electroporation',” he said. “Scientists are studying this around the globe and they're discovering what Rife discovered, which is if you zap some cells with certain frequencies it doesn't do them any good at all. ‘Electroporation' means they burst apart by electricity and they die, and it's irreversible. Effectively, that's what Rife was doing, he invented the concept of the irreversible electroporation. Now, none of these scientists would dream of calling it a Rife machine.

“In fact, I would say 99.99 percent of them have never heard of a Rife machine and wouldn't know what one was if it hit them in the face,” Mumby surmised. “They don't know that history, but they are still using Rife technology. That adds to the point I was making earlier on, which is it is very valid technology. It worked, and even mainstream people can do it, they certainly didn't get the spectacular results that Rife got with his very short series.”

Nonetheless, Mumby is adamant that we're all responsible for our health. “We're all battling cancer, so to wait until the crisis hits is probably being a bit silly. I think people should wise up long before cancer comes along to call either on yourself or on your nearest and most beloved. … It's very hard to motivate people to get preventative.”

When we talk about success, it's not a miracle tube that is going to cure everybody of cancer.

Dr. Kevin Conners

‘Energy vibrates at a specific frequency'

“HRF is radio frequency, that's what that stands for,” said Dr. Kevin Conners, who has been studying alternative cancer care for more than 18 years. “However, you can use Rife frequency, using high frequency instead of radio frequency. There are apparatuses, machinery for both. We use radio frequency Rife and we use high frequency Rife. And we use auditory frequency, which technically isn't Rife.”

Conners added: “The premise behind what it does is its using light frequencies. It’s using frequencies through a plasma tube. It will light up so the frequencies are coming through the light spectrum. According to quantum physics, energy vibrates at a specific frequency and it is that frequency that makes it what it is. So, everything at its smallest particle is simply energy that vibrates at a frequency.

“Rife speculated that cancer vibrates at a specific frequency too and a cancer cell is vibrated at a different frequency than a healthy cell.

“Cancer is a normal cell; something got in there whether a toxin or a chemical or a virus or a bacteria or something got in there and is disrupting the replication cycle at the nucleus,” Conners said.

“Cancer is something that is disrupting the cell death cycle, too. So, something is disrupting the cell death, the cell is not going through normal apoptosis and dying. The cell is in rapid replication so it's vibrating at a different frequency.

“If you could hit it at its normal frequency, could you sync it back to normal frequency so it just stops replicating. That was one of Rife's premises. The second premise, if you could hit it at zone frequency — because it's less stable — you cause it to die. That's really the purpose of frequency medicine.”

Conners, who heads Conners Clinic which focuses on Applied Kinesiologist with an emphasis on Botanical Medicine and Homeopathy, said his experience with electromedicine has been remarkable.

“We've seen miracles with it quite honestly. One could say, ‘Well, how do you know it was the Rife that did it?' The honest answer is, I don't. We don't do Rife exclusively; we change a person's diet, do nutrition. But we do the Rife on every cancer patient that we see.

“When we talk about success, it's not a miracle tube that is going to cure everybody of cancer. That's where I think you get in trouble making a claim like that because it's just not true. We have patients that die. Not every one of our patients gets better. They just don't. Understand 85 percent of people that come here, they're already in Stage IV and they've done everything. We're their last hope.”

Conners is steadfast in his support for electromedicine. “I personally would never treat cancer without using a Rife machine. That's how important I think it is,” he said.

IEP Caution
Dr. Steve Haltiwanger notes that with irreversible electroporation, the patient is under general anesthesia, with total muscle blockade. “That means they have to breathe for you, they have to paralyze your muscles, because the field strength is so strong, it will cause all the muscles in your body to contract in a spasmodic way, and you just can't give them the treatment. So, you have to do it under general anesthesia.”

‘This is not a magic wand'

“While we've seen miracles with the Rife machine and we have seen, I believe, people live months and years longer, using the Rife machine — it's not a cure-all,” said Dr. Steve Haltiwanger, who trained with physician and researcher Dr. Hans Nieper. “I tell people, ‘You gotta understand, this is not a magic wand.' But we've seen miracles with [Rife]. It is something you want to look at.

However, he does caution “Rife is a '30s technology, there have been new developments since the thirties.”

Haltiwanger has been researching electromedicine since the mid-1980s.

“Electroporation is when you're exposing the body to a high intensity electrical field, and there's different degrees of intensity, of course,” he noted. “When you expose the body to an electrical field of high enough intensity, at a short enough duration of pulses, you actually begin to cause pores to form in the cell membrane. And these are small pores, and they have different types of ways of doing it, one's called nanosecond pulse stimulators, and these small pores will actually allow entry of compounds into the cell.

“People have used these in various things from nutritional therapies to even cancer. In cancer, it's called electrochemical therapy, electrochemotherapy — when you combine the use of a cancer drug, that you usually inject into the bloodstream, or you inject it directly into a tumor artery, and then you expose the body to this electrical field. This causes what's called reversible electroporation, where these cells will transiently increase their ability to be permeable to foreign compounds, and so you're able to get the cancer drugs into the tumors and kill them.

“Irreversible electroporation is when you use a very high voltage field, and this actually causes the destruction of the cell membranes,” Haltiwanger said. “Every cell in the body has a small membrane covering that controls the concentration of chemicals and substances on the interior, different from the exterior of the cell. So, it's a really important barrier for the function of the cell, and so when you use irreversible electroporation, you're using an electrical field to destroy the cell membrane, and when that occurs, the cell will actually die. It goes into what's called apoptosis, or programmed cell death, although some degree of necrosis also occurs. Cancer cells seem to be fairly susceptible to this.”

Recent studies of electromedicine

Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a promising new, minimally invasive modality for the ablation (the surgical removal) of solid tumors. Unlike the current leading thermal ablation modalities, such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryoablation, IRE uses nonthermal electric energy to irreversibly destabilize cell membranes, resulting in focused cell death.

During the past decade, IRE has emerged as a novel ablation tool by using the effect of an applied electric field to kill cancer cells, without damaging the surrounding extracellular matrix, vessels, nerves, and neighboring normal tissue. Although IRE has been investigated for a short period of time, its potential use for cancer and tissue ablation has received growing attention. This had led to a considerable number of studies on IRE's validity and safety, including recent in vivo animal and human studies. [1]

IRE could be an alternative therapy when neither surgery nor traditional ablation can be used for tumors of the pancreas. IRE may offer an additional treatment option to patients that otherwise would hold no hope for long-term survival and would be traditionally treated with palliative intent with external radiation or systemic chemotherapy. Until recently, there has been a lack of data on early outcomes (eg, periprocedural morbidity and mortality rates, the effectiveness of ablation) and long-term survival of patients with nonresectable pancreatic cancer treated with IRE. [2]

As for IRE as a stand-alone treatment, for patients who receive irreversible electroporation only, recovery takes less time than a resection or a resection and margin augmentation.

To determine the effectiveness of the procedure, Chris Wolfgang and Matthew Weiss are following their patients for two to three years. “The big hope is that we are going to find it is very effective in killing tumors for good,” Weiss said. In the meantime, “Patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer now have another option for treatment.” [3]

Another study notes that minimally invasive image-guided, energy-based tumor ablation is now in widespread clinical use to treat a wide range of small focal primary and metastatic tumors in the liver, kidney, lung, and other organs. Traditionally, radiofrequency (RF) energy has been used as a standard ablation treatment that relies on thermal damage to eliminate a tumor.

In an attempt to improve ablation performance, newer platforms that include faster and hotter thermal applications based on microwave energy have been gaining increased utility and acceptance. More recently, irreversible electroporation ablation, a technique that uses high-density electrical fields to induce cell membrane damage and cellular apoptosis, has been introduced into clinical practice with the aim of abolishing tumor through largely nonthermal methods. Thus, clinicians are now being provided with multiple ablation tools that ostensibly can achieve tumoricidal effects with different mechanistic approaches. [4]

Electromedicine Protocols

Complementary Treatments

Electromedicine or frequency-centric treatments are called many things — Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), Oscillator Cell Regeneration Therapy, Bioresonance Therapy, Chakra / Energy Therapy, just to name a few. It is recommended that you discuss these protocols with your doctor.

Frequency Generators

Frequency generators come in two different versions or system configurations:

A frequency generator with a 15-watt linear amplifier which can be used with the contact or electrode method of delivering the frequencies. Basically, the generator creates specific resonant frequencies (including the 3.1 MHz carrier frequency) and the amplifier amplifies these frequencies up to 15 watts of power output.

The more powerful device is a frequency generator with a 207-watt peak amplifier which uses a plasma gas ray tube for broadcasting the specific frequencies, including sidebands, called a plasma tube amplifier.

Microorganisms — pathogens and microbes, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi — have a specific vibration or signature to which they can be exposed, resulting in their ultimate death or deactivation.

The HRF Protocol utilizes a uniquely designed, wide-range 20 MHz frequency generator to deliver these specific resonant frequencies (the mortal oscillatory rate or MOR) to the body (human or animal).

When an unwanted microorganism is exposed to its MOR, it oscillates to the point of being damaged or killed. The best image to describe this resonating effect is that it is similar to how an opera singer (or a talented vocalist) can shatter a wine glass with the right pitched note carried by audio waves.

Bob Beck Protocol

Another form of electromedicine is the Bob Beck Protocol. The Bob Beck machines were designed to kill the microbes in the bloodstream, lymph system and elsewhere in the body — but not inside cancer cells. By doing this the immune system is supercharged and the immune system is able to safely kill the cancer cells.

Beck, a Ph.D. in physics, sought to recreate a totally suppressed cure for AIDS which had been accidentally discovered by two medical doctors, Dr. Steven Kaali and Dr. William Lyman, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Beck was able to create a new cure for AIDS using their discovery.

However, possibly by accident, he found out that when you totally eliminate all microbes from the body that the immune system is supercharged enough to cure cancer. This is the Bob Beck Protocol.

The Bob Beck Protocol is an excellent cancer treatment but may take two or three months to become highly effective because it takes time to safely and completely rid the body of microbes and then it takes more time for the immune system to supercharge itself sans microbes.

In 2006, the New York Times broke the story that many oncologists were taking payoffs from drug companies to push chemotherapy that didn’t work on unsuspecting cancer patients. However, broadcast and cable news networks continued to avoid telling the audience about the betrayal of the medical doctors’ oaths.

As Barry Lynes noted in Rife’s World of Electromedicine, journalist Ralph Moss bluntly claimed, “Cancer patients will have no way to know whether a particular drug is being prescribed because it is the right and proper treatment, or because it lines the pockets of the doctor who gives it.”

The FY 2017 Consolidated Appropriations Act included $5.389 billion for the National Cancer Institute — a $174.6 million increase over FY 2016. NCI also received $300 million in FY 2017 for the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot through the 21st Century Cures Act. This is money the U.S. Congress appropriates for cancer research. More than a billion dollars for cancer research comes from charitable donations to various organizations such as the America Cancer Society and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
