What is a "Rife machine"?
A "Rife machine" is
a research instrument invented by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife. A
Rife machine is a electronic device which generates energy in the
form of radio waves. The rate at which these energy pulses are
emitted is called 'frequency', or cycles per second. (measured
in 'Hertz') These frequencies are then applied in some fashion
to an individual with the intent of bettering the individual's
health. They are used by experimenters, practitioners and private
users alike, to try to influence the body in making chemical changes
for better health. Rife proved you could even kill unwanted
organisms that thrive within us by using these frequencies to
devitalize them, without causing harm to healthy cells and tissue.
(Much later, Dr. Hulda Clark used her own equipment to discover
frequencies for 1000's of germs. She mapped them out for us.)
The term “Rife Machine”
has been put on many modern frequency generators sold today, even though
they can NOT produce Dr. Rife's original frequencies. The use of
the words "Rife Machine" is a misleading term used imply that people are
looking at a machine that Rife himself built and used, and to imply it
is capable of producing Dr. Rife's own frequencies, when in fact, most
Rife machine, of course, is one made by Royal Rife himself.
All others must be considered copy cat devices, simply based on his
theories and designs. Today the vernacular is changing, as these
devices are more commonly referred to simply as a "frequency
Many of these
modern frequency generators can only output low audio frequencies from 1
Hertz to 10,000-20,000 Hertz (cycles per second).
Most do not use the RF (radio frequency) method of delivery that Dr.
Rife's machines used. One of Dr. Rife's early machines covered a
large frequency range from the low audio range of 12,000 Hertz to about
2,000,000 Hertz. Later this increased to 20,000,000Hz.
types of modern day frequency generators exist. Some use direct
contact with hand-held cylinders or 'contact pads' connected via
wires to the generator. Others use high voltage and wattage to
energize gas filled plasma/argon lamps to 'broadcast' the signal while
the individual sits nearby, being exposed to the modulated light energy.
Others use magnetic fields to deliver help deliver signal. Still
claim to be able to "run Rife frequencies" through a computer and

confusing to say the least.

Raymond Royal Rife
Royal Rife is considered one of the greatest
scientific minds of the 20th Century. He is credited in the
book, "The Cancer
Cure That Worked", as the man who discovered a cure for
cancer and many other diseases… simply by using
vibrational energy. A "Rife machine" works on the
principle of sympathetic vibration and resonance, which
states that if there are two similar objects and one of them
is vibrating, the other will begin to vibrate as well, even
if they are not touching.
Rife learned that
different species of life have their own electromagnetic 'signature',
or pattern of oscillation
based on its individual genetic chemical blueprint. It's different
for all. Dr. Rife discovered that viruses, bacteria, and parasites
are particularly sensitive to their own specific 'bio frequencies' and
could be destroyed by intensifying those frequencies until chemical
changes occur within the pathogen and it would devitalize and die.
Sometimes they could see them literally explode... like an intense
musical note that can shatter a wine glass.
Christopher Bird reported in the New Age article, regarding
"...many lethal those of tuberculosis, typhoid, leprosy . . . appeared
to disintegrate or 'blow up' in the field of his microscope."
What is Sympathetic Vibration?
Royal Rife's "Universal Prismatic
What Royal Rife built initially was his "Universal Prismatic
Microscope". This incredible microscope amplified his view of LIVE
SPECIMENS by up to 60,000 times! This allowed him to view live
pathogens in controlled environments. Rife was the FIRST PERSON in
the world to actually see (and photograph) live viruses! Rife found a
means to building this microscope with a very long optical path with
specially-ground quartz prisms in the barrel of his microscope. In
addition, he determined that white light, which contains all wavelengths
of visible light, was not suitable for high-magnification optics, and
used a "Risley" prism between his light source and the sample, thus
illuminating the sample with a single frequency of monochromatic light
(very similar to high-definition research microscopes of today which use
Royal Rife's microscope was a stunning advance. Unlike the electron
microscope, Rife's microscope made it possible to study living bacteria,
viruses, fungi, and so forth. An electron microscope kills it's
specimens. Royal Rife's remarkable breakthrough used a new approach to
bend light. As an end result, Rife was able to prove that bacteria could
change their form (or die), because he and others could literally watch
then began beaming different frequencies on these microorganisms to
study the effect. What he found was that bacteria could transform into
cancer causing viruses. Rife implanted his cancer-causing bacteria into
rats. Rife inoculated 411 lab animals with this virus, created 411
tumors, and then eliminated all 411 of them. He did the same with many
other diseases. From here, 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, 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. Rife's work demonstrated that cancer cells might be
transformed to healthy cells again!
Up until the early 1950s, Rife spent his life perfecting this method.
After nearly 20,000 unsuccessful attempts, Rife finally isolated and
identified the human cancer virus, and named it Cryptocides Primordiales.
The discoveries of Royal Rife were presented to the Smithsonian
Institute in Washington and the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia along
with the frequency generators used.
A report from the Smithsonian Institution in 1944
validates Rife's work. Titled "The New Microscope" by Dr. R.E.
Seidel (report #3781) it states "Under the Universal Microscope
disease organisms such as those of cancer ... and other disease may be
observed to succumb when exposed to certain lethal frequencies..." In
layman's terms, that means they used the Universal Microscope to watch
as they used a frequency generator to kill certain virus cells, such as
cancer. This report confirms... Rife's frequency therapy did work!
This virus death ray was applied to cancers in rats and it worked. The
next step was humans. The results were astounding. "14 out of 16
terminal patients cured!"
Here is Royal Rife's report summary: "The first clinical work
on cancer was completed under the supervision of Milbank
Johnson, M.D., which was setup under a special medical research
committee of the University of Southern California. Sixteen
cases were treated at the clinic for many types of malignancy.
After just 3 months, 14 of these so-called hopeless cases were
signed off as clinically cured by a staff of medical doctors and
Alvin G. Ford, M. D., pathologist for the group."
(Note: At the time of the study's conclusion, the remaining 2
people were not cancer free; however, it is known that both
patients did eventually recover under Rife's supervision.)
Throughout the 1930's, 40's and 50's, Royal Rife and his associates
continued their work. In 1940, Arthur W. Yale, M.D. reported that Rife's
discoveries were an entirely new theory of the origin and cause of
cancer, and the treatment and results have been so unique and
unbelievable "...that we may be able to eliminate the second largest
cause of deaths in the United States".
In a New Age Journal March 1976 article, the story of Rife's cancer cure
was detailed. Since then, Rife has been nominated for the "Alternative
Nobel Prize" which is annually awarded in Europe as a protest to the
more established, less risk taking Swedish honor. Yet, little notice of
Rife and his miraculous discovery has infiltrated the establishment's
main stream awareness.
In a brief history of Rife written in 1954 by John Crane, he states that
Royal Rife received an honorary Doctor of Parasitology (Science) degree
from the University of Heidelberg in 1914. In 1936, Rife received an
honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of Southern
California. Dr. Rife won 14 government awards for scientific
discoveries. Where technology didn't exist, Rife invented it. Examples
include the first micro-dissectors, micro-manipulators, and heterodyning
Perhaps his most special legacy is the incredible growing field of
science he left behind for us. Today's "rife machines" (inaccurately
named) are finding their way into more and more homes everyday.
A Brief History of the
Development of Rife's Frequency Generator
a Complete History, read "The Rife Machine Report"
Dr. Rife passed away in
1971. The last machine built under his direction was built in the
1950’s. Dr. Rife used the available equipment of the day in his
instruments. The instrument Dr. Rife used in the 1934 clinic was
assembled from standard off-the-shelf frequency generating equipment.
By 'off-the-shelf', we mean that anyone could purchase this equipment
because it was standard electronic equipment.
In 1923 Dr. Rife purchased
the Colin B. Kennedy Company equipment. Dr. Rife used the Kennedy
Model 110, 220 and 281 in his work on micro-organisms. The Model
110 had the broadest frequency range of these three models. It went from
12,000 Hertz to about 2 million Hertz. The frequencies that Dr. Rife
used with the Kennedy equipment ranged from 139,200 Hertz for Anthrax to
1,604,000 (adjusted to 1,607,450 Hertz in 1936) for the BX cancer virus.
frequencies that were used by Dr. Rife’s machines from 1936 through the
1950's were never intended to treat disease directly. The audio
frequencies were used to create RF (radio frequency) sideband
frequencies which would hit the correct higher harmonic RF
frequencies that would actually kill or devitalize the organisms.
(In radio communications, a sideband is a band
frequencies higher than or lower than the carrier frequency,
containing power as a result of the modulation
process. The sidebands consist of all the
Fourier components of the modulated signal except the carrier.
engineer, Philip Hoyland, built all of Dr. Rife’s instruments from 1935
to 1938. He built the instruments that used the audio frequencies and
never told Dr. Rife or any of their business partners in the Beam Ray
Corporation how the instrument worked. Philip Hoyland was trying to
protect his interest, and the Company's interests from those who might
try to steal their technology.
This was necessary because
they were not able to patent the frequencies or the Rife Ray equipment.
This was because all this technology was in public domain. Philip
Hoyland ended up taking the Beam Ray Corporation to court in a legal
dispute, which he lost. Though Dr. Rife and the Beam Ray Corporation won
the legal battle against Philip Hoyland, they still did not find out how
Philip Hoyland designed these audio frequency instruments to work on
harmonics. The Beam Ray Company came to its end in 1939 because the
legal battle bankrupted the Company. The secret of Philip Hoyland’s
audio frequency instrument remained hidden until 2010, when an
original instrument was analyzed.
Royal rife and Phillip Hoyland, seen here with the Beam Ray #5
The instrument used a ray tube
and had one variable Audio oscillator and one Fixed RF oscillator set at
3.30 or 3.80 MHz. Power usage was about 450 to 600 watts. Output to the
ray tube about 75 RF watts.
For the past 60+
years no one knew exactly how the Rife Ray #5 or Beam Ray Clinical
instrument audio frequencies worked with the high RF carrier frequency.
Due to this lack of knowledge many people have been wrongly using the
audio frequencies for the 'treatment' of disease. What even made things
worse is in the 1950’s two of Dr. Rife's business partners, John Crane
and John Marsh, lowered the audio frequencies by a factor of ten times.
(This decision was made because they did not understand how the
instrument really worked.)
- Beam Ray Clinical
The changes that were made
at this time compromised the instrument's effectiveness. Because of
these mistakes, the wrong frequencies have been used for almost 60 years
and people have built instruments that can only output low audio
frequencies. This means that almost all the frequency generators that
people call "Rife machines" which are sold on the market today are
limited to just low audio frequencies and cannot output Dr. Rife's
original high RF frequencies. "The Rife Machine Report" gives in
great detail the workings of Dr. Rife’s instruments and the 2010
discovery of how Philip Hoyland’s audio frequency instrument worked.
Click here to read "The Rife
Many people ask, why would anyone want to be limited to the low
audio frequencies, which were wrongly used for the treatment of disease,
when Dr. Rife’s correct frequencies were all in the higher RF
range? (Why indeed.) It was Dr. Rife’s high RF frequencies that
Dr. Milbank Johnson used in the 1934 cancer and tuberculosis clinic, not
the low audio frequencies.
After the 1934 clinic, Dr. Milbank
Johnson wanted an instrument built that would be put into the comforts
of a single cabinet. Dr. Rife’s original equipment consisted of
several pieces of equipment and was difficult to move around. In 1935
Philip Hoyland was hired by Dr. Johnson and Dr. Rife to move the
frequency generating equipment forward from the 1920's technology to the
newer technology available in the 1930's. This new instrument was called
the Rife Ray #4. But even this new instrument was nothing
revolutionary, because it was a standard design used during that time
One year later in 1936 Philip Hoyland built the
Rife Ray #5 or the Beam Ray Clinical machine, and it used
a standard M.O.P.A. transmitter design. M.O.P.A stands for “Master
Oscillator Power Amplifier.” This design had been used for several years
and all Hoyland did was attach the ray tube where the metal antenna was
connected. A ray tube was just an X-ray tube re-gassed with noble gases
such as neon, argon or helium. These gases do not put off any harmful
X-rays and were safe to use. The safety of these gases have been proven
over the many years by the fact that light bulb companies use these
types of gases in the light bulbs that they sell for public use.
The Rife Ray #4 built in 1935 used Dr. Rife’s original high RF
frequencies that ranged from 139,200 Hertz to 1,607,450 Hertz.
Dr. Rife’s #4 instruments used these frequencies directly output through
the ray tube. It did not used Philip Hoyland’s Beam Rays M.O.P.A. design
which hid the frequencies in order protected their technology.
The important thing to remember is the audio frequencies used in the
instrument were not used for the treatment of disease (directly). This
is where the big mistake has been made for the last 60 years. The audio
frequencies were used to create harmonic high frequency sideband
frequencies. It was one of these harmonic sideband frequencies that
would hit a higher harmonic of Dr. Rife's original frequency and treat
the disease. This sounds somewhat complex and this is why Philip Hoyland
was able to hide the method he used in the Rife Ray #5 instrument.
This same basic M.O.P.A design was updated and used in the 1953 AZ-58
style Beam Ray Clinical replica audio instrument. The major
difference that was made to the 1953 AZ-58 instrument was the audio
frequency range. Due to the lack of understanding how the instrument
really worked, the audio frequencies were lowered by a factor of ten
times. This made it so the sideband method used by Philip Hoyland to
produce the proper high RF sideband frequencies no longer worked.
Another big mistake was made when they changed the high RF carrier
frequency. If the RF carrier frequency was changed then the audio
frequencies would not work because they were calculated to match the
carrier frequency to produce the proper sideband frequencies which
treated the disease. These two mistakes compromised the 1953 AZ-58
instrument and made it so it no longer worked on Dr. Rife’s high RF
By the late 1950's Dr. Rife’s business partners,
John Crane and John Marsh, decided to take an off-the-shelf frequency
generator and try using in it with the same low audio frequencies used
by the 1953 AZ-58 Beam Ray replica ray tube instrument.
Instead of using the ray
tube instrument they plugged some metal disks with handles into the
off-the-shelf frequency generator and used them to make contact with the
Today most people use
metal hand cylinders and foot plates. They easier to use and more
affordable than the light beam method. Some companies put down
this method of using metal hand cylinders and claim that only a ray tube
will work due to their incorrect understanding of the "Skin Effect."
The first link below will take you to a page on this site that will show
that metal hand cylinders work better than ray tubes within certain
power ranges. The second link gives the complete scientific report which
proves that frequencies will enter the body using metal hand cylinders.
This information is well worth reading.
Metal Hand Cylinders or Hand Held Ray Tubes
RF Frequencies and the "Skin Effect"
This simple change of
using metal hand cylinders worked better than they ever thought it
would. This also made it possible for anyone to take a standard
off-the-shelf frequency generator and use it with any of the frequencies
found by Dr. Rife, as long as the frequency generator had the correct
frequency range and power output. Unfortunately the off-the-shelf
generator that they used did not have a high enough frequency range to
output Dr. Rife true high RF frequencies. It was only capable of
outputting low audio frequencies.
Thus was born many of the low audio
frequency instruments which are used today and are called "Rife
The idea to use a standard off-the-shelf frequency generator was a
good idea. But using one with a low audio frequency range only was not.
This common sense decision to use standard off-the-shelf frequency
generating equipment, of the correct frequency range, means that anyone
can use standard off-the-shelf frequency generating test equipment the
way that Dr. Rife did, as long as it has sufficient power output. There
are companies that sell many so called "Rife Machines." Most
of these so called Rife machines are nothing but low audio frequency
generators. They call them "Rife Machines" in order to get people to
believe that their generator is somehow different than a standard
off-the-shelf frequency generator.
As explained, Dr. Rife used
frequencies that ranged from the audio range to the high RF range. To
cover this range requires a frequency generator that has a range from 1
Hertz to about 18 million Hertz. (Rife's highest known frequency was
over 17,000,000Hz) Most people want to use ALL the frequencies
that Dr. Rife found, not just a few of them. This is where these so
called "Rife Machines" fall short. They only output frequencies in the
low audio range and have no capability of putting out frequencies in the
range that Dr. Rife used in his 1920's, 1930's, 1953 equipment, nor do
they use the carrier wave method of delivery. Because of the initial
mistake of using the audio frequencies, many people started to use other
audio frequencies to see if they could possibly help with additional
health problems. Because of this decision there are many hundreds of
audio frequencies which have been found that have helped with hundreds
of other health conditions. Somehow, out of this mistake of using the
wrong frequencies, a positive thing happened!
Because of what has been explained here, when people are shopping
for a true Rife style frequency generator, they should make sure that
they purchase one that... 1) covers the full range of frequencies
that Dr. Rife and Hoyland used, 2) uses an optional carrier wave for
more power, penetration and better harmonics ,
and 3) it has enough power to properly delivery these

frequency devices are medically licensed in Germany
