Royal Rife: A History On A Forgotten Genius

The Beginning

Royal Raymond Rife, born in Elkhorn, Nebraska in 1888, was a gifted inventor and scientist. He began his career studying bacteriology at John Hopkins University. He worked in his lab while attending the University of Heidelberg. Through mastering a number of disciplines, and with a drive to understand the functions of how bacteria, fungi, and pathogens functioned, he invented a number of incredible technologies considered to be science fiction.


One of these inventions was a microscope that could magnify 60,000 times, with a magnification that was equal to its resolution. The microorganisms being viewed were so infinitesimally small, that the atoms in the chemical stain typically used to expose microorganisms would have obscured them. Instead, this microscope used monochromatic light that caused the organism to fluoresce. As a result, Rife could identify the virus he was observing by the color it refracted. This invention was eventually described and published by the Journal of the Franklin Institute.

During his time in the university in 1920, Rife also began the development of electronic frequency technologies. The theory of coordinative resonance with frequencies which he proved would kill microorganisms by electron transfer and internal stresses of pathogenic cells owing to electromagnetic and electrostatic forces.

To put it simply, every virus, bacteria, fungi, and known pathogen oscillated at a specific frequency (or resonant frequency). When said pathogens were targeted, it was possible to destroy them by shaking them with intensified frequencies of the original until the pathogen would explode, the same way an opera singer's voice shatters a wine glass that matches the frequency of her voice.

To prove this theory, he studied tetanus, typhoid, gonorrhea, syphilis, pneumonia, streptococci, tuberculosis, sarcoma, carcinoma, leprosy, polio, glanders, bubonic plague, influenza, herpes, cataracts, glaucoma, sinus, ulcers, and many other virus bacteria and fungi in his experiments. The results of his experimentation not only destroyed each targeted microorganism, but left the surrounding tissue unharmed. The methodologies would continue to evolve, eventually utilizing electromagnetism, radio frequencies, and eventually light frequencies within a glass tube he would call "Beam Ray" technology. He considered a disease cured when he could destroy a microorganism ten consecutive times using what he called its Mortal Oscillatory Rate (MOR).


Rife's work certainly wasn't going unnoticed. In November of 1931, The San Diego Evening Trubune reported that Dr. Milbank Johnson, Director of the Southern California American Medical Association, honored Dr. Rife at a banquet held at his own estate in Pasadena, California. Forty-four of the US's most respected doctors from around the country attended. Johnson requested a research committee be assembled to run human experiments. This committee also consisted of Dr. Alvin Ford, President of the American Association of Pathologists (requested by Royal Rife).

The trials began in 1934, which consisted of 16 terminally ill cancer patients. Each patient was brought to Rife's lab in San Diego to undergo treatment within a 90-day period. The result was 86% of the patients being cured of cancer, which the remaining percentage having adjusted treatments made for an addition 30 days, before they too were 100% free of cancer. Rife reported that his technology denatured the known pathogens, which would cause them to shut down.

His technologies would continue to impact the lives of others throughout the world. Some of these reports include Dr. James B. Couche's use of the Rife machine, which assisted in the recovery of his patients from cancer and tuberculosis, and Couche's brother's 30-year sinus condition, along with Dr. Arthur W. Yale's patients who also completely recovered from syphilis, cancer, tuberculosis, and many other infections.

What Happened After?

Sadly, less than 15 years later, Rife's work would come to an end. Those who were a part of the committee denied ever knowing Rife. He was completely isolated from the American Medical Association, and its members went to trial for shady business. A large number of reports were released, some including his technology suddenly started disappearing, his laboratory being ransacked by the police, his research either being stolen or destroyed, and those who defended Rife and his technologies had their careers brought to ruin. The trials would eventually wear Rife down, which led him down the path to alcoholism. In 1957, his wife passed away. And on August 11, 1971, at Grossman Hospital in El Cajon, California, he died of 83 years-old after a heart attack caused by the overdose of the combination of alcohol and Valium.


Although Rife's original work came to an end, there are many who continue to carry on his legacy. The result led to small communities around the world that would carry the torch, revive his work, and continue to create great change in the world of health.
