Table of Contents

In the 1930s, Royal Raymond Rife and his medical colleagues cured cancer, typhoid, leprosy, streptococcus, typhus, polio and other diseases. Rife's methods were reported in the Smithsonian and Franklin Institute journals, the Mayo clinic minutes, and worldwide media. If Rife’s technology was safe, non-invasive, drug-free, painless and inexpensive, then why hasn't everybody heard about it? How did this frequency technology work? And how can we use it today?

Now you can find out! In this new book, a packed 750 pages of information include...

What is inside the book?

The Rife Handbook of Frequency Therapy, with a Holistic Health Primer, is a 760 page book which takes a very detailed and well referenced look at the background of both allopathic (conventional) and holistic (complimentary) medicine, before introducing the reader to Rife resonance therapy, based on the work of Dr. Royal Raymond Rife. 

Just about every aspect of Rife Therapy is covered in detail in a well structured and understandable way, which is suitable for beginners and experts alike. It is the result of more than 12 years of intensive research in collaboration with just about every expert in this field.

In simple terms, Rife therapy uses the resonance effect to treat disease in a similar way to how a wine glass is destroyed when an opera singer sings at the correct note. Rife therapy was originally developed to treat cancer and is now also widely used to treat Lyme disease, arthritis and many other diseases using specific electrically generated frequencies.

In the USA, Rife therapy is used by many thousands of people as an experimental complimentary therapy with a number of very positive reports. In Europe, Rife therapy is often used by natural health practitioners, and related methods are also used in some European hospitals and clinics. Anyone interested in learning about new therapy options will find this subject and in particular this book both logical and fascinating.

Author's Introduction to the 2011 Edition

The first edition of The Rife Handbook was released in March 2002, where it debuted at the Rife Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the United States. Despite my having steadily researched this technology for eight years, I could not have anticipated how many people were hungry for information about this unique healing modality. Nor could I have grasped the diverse knowledge and sophistication of the many researchers in this field.

Attending the Rife Conference, as a speaker, author and student, changed my life. Health professionals, device manufacturers and engineers were at the conference. But others attended, too—people who were ill or knew someone with a serious disease. Tired of the same old drug and-surgery routine dispensed by doctors who knew nothing else to suggest, they wanted to try something new. Several were already using the technology and recounted successful interventions against cancer and Lyme disease. The courage with which these folks were taking charge of their own lives was immeasurable and moving. 

I was also impressed by the dedication and talents of the researchers. While it was true that they could sometimes be quarrelsome and cantankerous—driven by their own preferences and pet theories about how things worked and how to best accomplish their goals—this was because they cared. They not only cared about whether others lived or died, they cared about how people lived and about improving the quality of other’s lives. Most significantly, as I later discovered, many of the researchers (like me) had at some point struggled with ill health. And some of them became Rife researchers after the death of a close friend or family member.

It was hard not old to feel overwhelmed by what the seasoned rifers knew, as I began to see how much there was yet to learn. The field of rife therapy is so vast, it requires the knowledge and expertise of people with many and diverse disciplines: the healing arts (chiropractor, medical doctor, homeopath, naturopath, veterinarian); medical and scientific research (laboratory technician, microbiologist, microscopist); historical research (archivist, filmmaker, writer); physics, and of course the nuts and bolts skills of electronics engineers. Every rifer has something to contribute. This technology could not have come this far without input from everyone. 

In the years that the first edition of this Handbook was in print, I had the almost daily privilege of connecting with customers from all over the world: laypersons and health care practitioners from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, England, France, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Wales and Zimbabwe, as well as my native United States. Words cannot adequately describe my appreciation of these rich multicultural exchanges. The health professionals wanted to know more, do more. And the laypeople, many of them quite ill, made a point of telling me how rigorously they had been seeking alternatives to the unhelpful medical treatments they had already tried. We may not yet be regularly hearing about Rife and his inventions in the mainstream media, but that has not stopped the word about rife therapy from spreading. Many people know, or intuitively sense, that frequency healing is a viable option, despite often discouraging comments from mainstream sources. These seekers won’t stop searching until they find something that works.

The last several years have yielded valuable new information on Rife and his inventions. For a long time, old 1936 movie footage showing Rife working in his lab provided some of the best (and only) visual clues about the equipment, aside from equally old photographs. Then reel-to-reel tapes, featuring Rife discussing the technology with many important colleagues, were discovered in an old trunk, cleaned of major hisses and pops, and transferred onto CDs. A Rife Ray, built in the 1940s, was found in a museum and restored by a team of resourceful engineers from the UK Rife Research Group. Shortly after that, a Rife researcher and machine designer in the United States was given a box of priceless documents by an elderly nurse who had once worked with John Marsh, a colleague of Royal Rife’s. This contemporary rifer was then given access to an old schematic of Royal Rife’s best unit, built in the 1930s. 

With help from other researchers—including an engineer familiar with the tube technology of Rife’s era—he deciphered the almost illegible drawing. And after thousands of hours of labor, he reconstructed Rife’s original 1930s device. We now had an almost total understanding of how Rife’s technology actually worked. Manufacturers were even closer to producing more efficient, optimally effective, and easier-to-use machines.

Synchronously, just after the year 2000, a German microscope manufacturer launched an instrument that not only can view minuscule pathogens in their living state, but exceeds Rife’s invention in magnification power and breathtaking depth of field. This new microscope has already begun to assist countless pathologists and other scientists in their work to detect frequencies for diseases caused by new virulent pathogens.

A number of modern researchers have connected microbes to conditions that one normally might not associate with pathogens. One medical doctor found a corkscrew-shaped, bacterial spirochete in the spinal fluid of over ninety percent of his clients with multiple sclerosis. Two scientists—who for years had formerly been dismissed by their colleagues for stating that stomach ulcers are caused by a bacterium—unearthed Helicobacter pylori in the stomach lining of people with ulcers, and won a Nobel Prize. Actinomycetes is now being linked to Parkinson’s disease. And there is irrefutable evidence that a strain of Adenovirus is implicated in obesity.

Despite, however, improved methods of identifying microbes with their associated diseases, this doesn’t mean that we should focus on the so-called germ theory as the foundation for getting well. It’s true that Rife
did focus on killing and disabling microbes. 

But it would be a mistake to utilize rife technology solely (or even primarily) from an allopathic perspective. Holistic medicine is founded on the need to correct the bodily terrain; even Rife knew this. Also, we are now realizing that Rife’s frequencies didn’t just kill microbes. The field created by his ray machine also helped normalize tissue function. We are at the beginning of a new era filled with discovery, enlightenment, growth, and healing. I feel incredibly blessed to be part of this worldwide movement.

You are riding the wave, too. Anyone who seriously investigates rife technology is making a statement. More and more people are saying that they don’t want to be bought and sold like commodities at the market. They don’t want to be toyed with, experimented on, or lied to. They don’t want their treatment options limited by what their doctors were allowed to learn in medical school. And they don’t want their doctors prevented from helping them by a licensing board that prohibits health practitioners from suggesting alternatives to the prevailing standard of care. People do want to have a say in matters that affect them, including the health care they use. Most important, they want their health care providers to honor their need for compassion and hope as much as they honor their need for physical care.

In essence, people want to have their humanity acknowledged, to be respected, free to make their own choices. No wonder polls show consistently that three-quarters of the United States population have sought complementary therapies in addition to Western medicine! 

As the number of infectious and degenerative maladies multiply, we need rife technology more than ever. Yet despite an obvious worldwide interest in frequency therapies of all kinds, information about rife therapy is available only to the minority who know where to look for it. The majority of people remain ignorant of this radical technology that can substantially reduce suffering and even save lives. It is my sincere hope that this Rife Handbook will make significant inroads into changing people’s lives for the better.

It takes strength and vision to see through, and beyond, the dominant paradigm. More than ever, the powers that be are invested in maintaining the status quo at the expense of health, happiness, and lives. It takes courage to challenge such engrained supremacy.

Vilified and discredited by the ignorant, his technology misunderstood and underutilized, Royal Raymond Rife died in 1971. Today, more than 35 years later, rife frequency healing—while not yet a household word—is nonetheless becoming more solidified in people’s consciousness. In some circles, the technology is being used so regularly that the word “rifing” has become a verb. I think that Royal Rife would have been pleased and gratified that his modality is finally being given the respect it deserves.

I trust that by the time you finish this book, you, too, will be using the word “rifing” as a verb.
