What health and Rife professionals say about the Rife Handbook:

There is a complete paucity of well written material on Dr. Royal Rife. Resonant Frequency Therapies are essentially unknown to the populace as a whole. Yet hundreds of thousands of people, from the skilled professional to the layperson, are using such devices with phenomenal success in the treatment of disease. Dr. Rife’s innovative technological discoveries involve many different scientific disciplines, and groundbreaking research in optical physics, electronics and the electronic treatment of disease. His legacy upsets the present scientific paradigm, but will eventually reshape our world. Dr. Silver’s book should do much to dispel the clouds of ignorance of the genius of Dr. Rife, and help open the minds of people to what is now a worldwide technological shift. This Handbook is long overdue.

This meticulously researched book examining the discoveries and inventions of Royal Raymond Rife provides new and ample documentation to lend credence to his theories. In addition, Dr. Silver’s supporting information on a variety of wellness issues is fascinating. The chapters 'Suggestions to Strengthen and Support Your System' and 'The Politics of Illness and the Nature of Health' are a compilation of cutting edge data, brilliantly interpreted. It is rewarding to see a new generation of health professionals postulating what I have been saying for 30 years. If you are interested in exploring Rife frequencies as an alternative source, or in acquiring new information to help with decisions about your health, this book will be a valuable addition to your library.

It is an honor to endorse The Handbook of Rife Frequency Healing. It is a book that is intelligent, well-researched, and politically courageous in a corrupt time. Tomorrow will bring sweeping changes and justice to those who committed some of the medical crimes described in these pages. Bravo for this work—another sign that a great cleansing of terrible abuses of power is underway. This is a very valuable resource book before the energy medicine hits its full, scientifically-validated stride in the years ahead.

(on book cover)


This is a well-written book, packed with practical information that even the neophyte user of Rife technology can apply easily. Dr. Silver’s book is a valuable contribution to the growing collection of Rife literature and will be a most beneficial addition to anyone’s holistic health library.

Jason Ringas, Rife Research Group of Canada

If anyone of you is considering an involvement with a Rife inspired or derived device, the purchase of Dr. Silver’s book will give you a knowledge boost that is virtually unbeatable from any other source!

Rarely have I been so pleased by a work of this magnitude...it has information of value to beginners as well as old hands at Rife technology. Not only is it extremely well written, bravo Nina!, but my own studies have certainly have been augmented!

Dr. Siver’s Handbook is 448 pages (8.5"X11") of prefect bound excellence in soft cover. The Handbook contains six chapters from "The Politics of Illness and the Nature of Health" (Chapter 1) through "Living and Dying: Transforming into Wholeness" (Chapter 6) and in between is every imaginable help and explanation concerning Rife devices and the phenomena he observed.

The Handbook has appendices that suggest resources, legal implications of Rife sessions, and a last minute addition concerning Biological Warfare frequencies, then there a a compete set of notes and references. I found the sparse list of Rife related web sites to be less than I expected, but still, considering the size of this work, adequate.

Frankly, this is the most complete treatment of Rife’s phenomena and subsequent developments and much more than I had ever imagined to appear in print!

Reviewed by Chet Day (July 2002)

It doesn't happen very often, but occasionally I read a massive book on natural health and healing that just plain blows me away.

The most recent find in his rare category is Dr. Nina Silver's huge and impressive "The Handbook of Rife Frequency Healing: Holistic Technology for Cancer and Other Diseases."

Silver, a Ph.D. and practicing psychotherapist in New York, spent eight years researching, refining, and writing this 448-page book.

Although the book focuses on the Rife Frequency Technology that was successfully used in the 1930s to cure cancer, typhoid, leprosy, polio, and other diseases, this handbook is much, much more than merely the best and most complete compendium on Rife frequency healing that I've ever seen.

In addition to a 200-page, cross-referenced Rife Frequency directory for most human ailments, this wonderful book also features ground-breaking information you can use to strengthen and support the body's immune system. You'll find detailed and helpful discussions on topics such as:

Nutritional supplements
Water and dehydration
Sleep, meditation, and rest
Various bodywork modalities
Diet and detox
And much, much more.

Subject: A brief report about some of my observations...........
March 15-17, 2002.

...Representatives from some companies present spoke at the conference and were complemented by several distinguished guest speakers. Among an array of very valuable data and supporting information from the wide field of frequency therapy many success stories of mostly nameless clients were presented. Some were attributed to the sole use of tube devices, others to the sole use of pad devices. Questions from the audience were answered openly and admissions of failure to positively affect the situation of some clients supported the credibility of the speaker.

It is my layman’s opinion that a marriage of both type devices could, if made available, perhaps be even more beneficial to clients than either one by itself. I hope that the capable people who developed the hardware available today share my opinion and provide a neat product along these lines speedily.

Here is the contribution which impressed me most during the conference.

Dr. Nina Silver presented the results of her 8 years of toil, her book titled: THE HANDBOOK OF RIFE FREQUENCY HEALING. I cannot claim to have read it all yet, but I screened through it and found its content to be solidly based on most, if not even all, facts on the subject available today. I deem its title to be most appropriate and this book should be made available to those people around the globe who work in this field.

Rea Centre BOOK REVIEW – May 2002 By Dec Twohig

Isn’t it strange how the gems of life sometimes seem to appear out of nowhere?

Last week, the youngster who helps out with the administrative chores dropped a gigantic envelope on my desk, largely because it was generically addressed to Rea, and partly because it saved her the task of toting it round the building to find a home. Inside, no note, but a massive doorstopper of a book.

Now ask yourself this: If you wandered through a book store and spotted a volume this large, with a pretty display of wave form patterns on the front cover, under the title THE HANDBOOK OF RIFE FREQUENCY HEALING, would you render a loud ‘hurrah’ and rush to the cash desk bearing the prize? No…you’d probably not give the book a second glance, let alone pick it up and skim it.

But you would be making one of the biggest mistakes of your life. You would not only be denying yourself a wealth of knowledge, but also the opportunity to attain optimal wellness. For this book is about health in the most radical way. If you are someone who wants to take power back into your own hands – if you’d prefer not to be at the mercy of ill-informed, patronizing and non-communicative medics who are backed by the sinister might of the pharmaceutical industry in their pursuit of power and wealth – then this book applies to you.

There have been many memorable books in my hands over the years, but few which have gripped me as this one does. The author is known to all of you – Dr Nina Silver, who pops up now and again with information packed posts, often on the subject of colloidal silver. This book is not about these topics. It has several levels, including the story of Royal Raymond Rife, his work, and a monumental section on the practical detail of the frequencies involved in the treatment of an encyclopedia of familiar disease processes.

THE HANDBOOK OF RIFE FREQUENCY HEALING will be a reference work for many years ahead. It will transform your attitudes to health, your own health, and sickness; it will empower you to a level you may not believe possible; and it will shake the blinkers from your eyes. It will teach you how to be healthy; how to eat well for a long, happy and fulfilling life; and it will put the power of knowledge, too often denied the layperson, into your hands and into your mind in a way you can use, day by day, without complexity or expense. This aspect of the book is priceless.

But the book offers far more. You do not need to be an expert to pick this book up and have the content make you breathless and blow your mind. In a sense, there is something for everyone, irrespective of their age, gender, education or culture. Which is why justice cannot be done with a single review post, and why over the next few weeks I would like to come up with a series of posts on the different levels of this wonderful book, with input from other specialized members of the Rea staff.

Moreover, I am going to go a step further – and suggest that this is a book to go out and buy, even if you have to beg, borrow or steal the cost. Almost 20 years ago, Nina Silver heard of Rife’s frequency therapy and gradually accumulated enough fragments to be able to open the box and see what lay inside. This book represents almost a decade of her life and energy.

Now a little about Rife himself and his therapy. Similar to how a television programme over thirty years ago opened my eyes to the realities of what happens to those who have the courage to speak up for the officially denied, ‘out of bounds’ areas of science, Nina’s book tells a towering story of a man whose work would have transformed the world of medicine had the medical and pharmaceutical cartels not destroyed him and erased all records of his work and existence from history.

It is always easier to be wise in hindsight; it is always tempting to postulate what might have happened had the course of events run differently. In the simpler world of the 30’s –a world where many of the diseases that form the scourge of life today were less omnipresent – Rife’s discoveries enabled doctors all over the world to successfully treat patients whose conditions had been pronounced ‘terminal’ or considered impossible to treat by orthodox medicine. Those of you with systemic candidiasis know how difficult and forlorn a journey it is to find effective knowledge and adequate treatment. Those of you suffering from cancer know how protracted, invasive, painful and debilitating orthodox medical treatment can be – and how greatly your integrity and dignity as a human being is compromised by a profession that patronizingly regards the patient almost as a non-being, thus paying only lip service to the concept of a truly therapeutic relationship between physician and patient. Had his discoveries not been ruthlessly buried by the pharmaceutical cartel, Rife’s method might have written a whole new history of success in the treatment of a range of cancers, which, even today, are regarded as a poor prognosis.

And so, encapsulated in this treasure trove, you have a story that will enthral you and enrage you if you have any regard for humanity and seek truths in science and medicine. Rife was a highly educated scientist, one of those geniuses who transcend boundaries and compartmentalisations of how we often limit scientific research to what is considered acceptable or even possible. Unhappy with the technical limitations of the microscopes available in the 1920’s and 30s, Rife designed and built a better microscope that would open up the universe of the microbe to his eyes and mind. He succeeded. His microscope designs were so good that it is fair to say that they have never been duplicated, even in today’s high tech world of electronics and computers. Not only was Rife able to enter the world of the virus particle with astounding clarity and magnification, he could enter the world of the LIVING virus without killing it for examination – something that cannot be done in modern times, since the electron microscope, in order to achieve its high magnification capability, requires the killing of the specimen for examination.

Some of Rife’s surviving instruments can be seen today, including at the Welcome Museum in Euston Road, London. Had Rife’s passion and ingenuity ended with the design of microscopes, his name and reputation would have been immortal, throughout the world of the 21st century. But Rife had also been experimenting with very high frequency radio signals, and went farther to develop a beam ray machine that would deliver specific frequencies. Having discovered the individual frequency of resonance – or mortal oscillatory rate – of individual pathogenic organisms, he was then able to match these specific frequencies with his ray machine and use it to shatter and destroy pathogens in the body, all without recourse to surgery or drugs, and without harming the human host.

As Rife’s technology came to be used across the USA and in Europe, it must have seemed like the dawning of an age in healing, never seen before, dwarfing any other major discovery of the ages. And there lay the crux of the matter: Rife’s machines were relatively non-costly, non-invasive, highly effective – and they totally cut the ground from under the pharmaceutical industry as well as lowered the height of the marble plinth upon which doctors of that era were inclined to place themselves, as remote and godlike figures.

So here you have a sequence – not unfamiliar in the world of science and medicine – when an outsider encounters establishment cartels and elites. Rife invents a microscope capable of high definition examination of living viruses. He realises that radio frequencies can be used curatively and develops a machine capable of doing this. His invention is acclaimed and widely used, demonstrating that a reliance on drugs and surgery can be lessened. Pharmaceuticals, the American Medical Association and various political bodies join forces to protect their self-interest and destroy Rife, his inventions, and most records of his existence, by any means possible. There is a blank space in history for half a century or more, during which doctors and pharmaceuticals get back to the serious business of power and profit.

(The story of Rife isn’t an isolated one. It’s the sort of event that can be orchestrated and managed so that any memory is quickly quelled, and the public becomes oblivious of what has been done in the shadows of officialdom, unaware of its loss. On a smaller scale, in the UK, there has been mention in the old club of Dr William Kilner of St Thomas’ Hospital. He invented a dye screen that could show the electrical field of the body and be used as a non-invasive diagnostic tool, back in the days when the crude X-ray machines were less effective and far more dangerous than many of the conditions they were used to examine. Kilner’s work was also destroyed and lost until the Dove Project in the late 80’s sought to continue his research. Denied funding and facilities, the project became ineffectual and has been indefinitely postponed. It is too much of a threat to the establishment, and too contrary to accepted theory to be allowed to see the light of day.)

Now I’m going to throw a personal note into what may seem like a paeon of untrammelled praises. There are points in my reading of Nina’s book where I think, in the areas of mainstream medicine and science, she can be a little too rigid to the point of dismissiveness and throw the baby out with the bathwater. As a young student, I acquired a very combative debating style, and have since come to believe that this may not always be an asset – since there is a fine line between passionate exposition of an idea and aggressive demolition of the other party. There have been times within Rea, when I’ve casually suggested ‘bouncing ideas’, and seen faces blanche and fingers scrambling for Kevlar jackets and protective headgear. This conditioning means that I find quite a bit of Nina’s style abrasive to the point of aggressiveness. (She does tell me that no one else has had this reaction.) The point of making what may seem like a derogatory comment about a woman I haven’t met – yet – is that I have learned, maybe better late than never, that sometimes softer words can be more effective and less distracting than an iron bar between the eyes.

Which is not to say that mainstream medicine doesn’t deserve its seedy reputation oftentimes. Many of us who live within the field that’s loosely called alternative medicine (for want of a better blanket term) do feel that medicine and scientific endeavors have lost their way, and become quite deranged. But within this enormous collective of the mad and the bad, those devoted to accumulating unlimited resources, and power freaks who control and manipulate entire governments and industries as well as individual unaware human beings – are dedicated men and women who do not deserve to be painted with the same brush. (Nina also informs me that obviously I have not read Chapter 6 in depth, where she defends some of the very medical professionals she skewers in Chapters 1 and 2.)

This is a personal reaction, and doesn’t detract from the simple fact that Nina Silver has produced a book that has the potential to touch not only every human being in sickness, but also every human being seeking a higher level of health, happiness and fulfillment in their life. There are thousands and thousands of books published every year. This is one that demands to be read. It deserves to be placed in the forefront of accessibility to every non-professional reader as well as every health care professional. In fact, there is no one who would not benefit from reading this book.

Stay tuned for further posts covering the different sections of this massive book in more depth and detail. Meanwhile: irrespective of your gender and background, buy this book, read this book, be stunned by it and glean from it knowledge that you are unlikely to find almost anywhere else. If you cannot afford it, and no one is willing to make you a gift of it, ask your local library to get it for you. In so doing, you will be helping your local community, because this is one book that is unlikely to be given broadcast reviews in the mainstream media – though if is well promoted in mainstream bookselling, it will be a welcome blessing.
