Surgery and chemotherapy are among the most common treatments for cancers around the world. In the UK, for instance, 28.4% of all cancer patients receive chemotherapy treatment, while 45% of patients receive surgery (alone or in conjunction with other treatment).1 But these procedures are extremely invasive and come with a long list of side effects.

Thankfully, they’re not the only methods of treatment.

Alternative therapies veer from the traditional treatment path and aim to bolster the immune system, enabling it to fight against cancer effectively. One promising method of treatment is rife machine therapy, which uses electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) to detect and eradicate cancer cells.

What is a Rife Machine?

The rife machine was created by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife in the 1920s and ‘30s, building off of Dr. Albert Abrams’s theory of radionics. The central idea of radionics is that all things in the universe have electromagnetic frequencies and, within the field of medicine, those EMFs can be used to balance the body and mind.

Dr. Rife built upon this point by narrowing the scope of focus to bacteria, viruses, and cancer. He invented a powerful microscope to view these organisms and observed that they responded to specific EMFs: the cells would undergo apoptosis (cell death).

How Does the Rife Machine Work?

What does a rife machine do? To understand how the rife machine works, picture an opera singer holding a wine glass. When she sings the correct note and holds it, the vibrations from her voice interact with the glass, and it shatters. That’s because she hit and maintained a specific frequency that caused the glass to break.

According to Dr. Rife, this is exactly what happens to cancerous cells when the rife machine is used on a cancer patient. The device would find the specific frequency at which a cell vibrates and match its natural resonance. When the cell is exposed to specific, repeated low-energy EMFs, the cell vibrates enough to cause it to undergo apoptosis. 

Dr. Rife experimented with his machine and created a list of unique destructive frequencies for all kinds of cancers, bacteria, and viruses. Modern users have developed an even longer list with over 250 frequencies for different ailments.

Types of Rife Machines

While there are different types of rife machines, no modern iteration uses the type of rife frequency Dr. Rife originally used in his device. When he first created the rife machine (also referred to today as a “frequency generator”), he used radio frequency (RF) carrier waves. 

Because RFs were more powerful, they interfered with radio towers and could be detected up to a mile away. The FCC has since put a halt to the use of certain radio frequencies such as the ones emitted by a rife machine. Nowadays, rife machines employ digital technology to deliver frequencies via different wave types.

Since most rife machines come with multiple wave types built-in, the larger difference is that there are two ways to use the device:

#1 With Pads

Pads used for rife machine cancer therapy are the same ones used with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machines for physical therapy. These pads are square electrodes (electrical conductors), and they have a sticky, gel-like coating on the side that adheres to your skin. Once the rife machine is on, the pads transfer electromagnetic frequencies to your body via electrical currents. The sensation can feel like tingling, or you may hear the frequency from the device.

#2 With Plasma Tubes

Dr. Rife used plasma tubes in his original rife machine. Plasma tubes are considered better electromagnetic frequency conductors than pad devices because plasma uses photons (light) as a carrier as opposed to electrons (current). There are plasma tubes that transfer frequencies from across the room with no contact. However, the majority of patients prefer hand-held tubes for their warm glow, soft light, and the relaxing feeling they produce.

Immunity Therapy Center: Your Partner in the Fight Against Cancer

Rife frequency machine therapy is a holistic treatment aimed to help cancer patients overcome their battle. While more research needs to be done, many patients have seen positive results after undergoing rife machine therapy. As always, consult a professional before undergoing any new treatments or rife therapy.

Immunity Therapy Center offers a wide variety of specialized alternative cancer treatment and therapy options for everything from cancers to autoimmune, chronic, and infectious diseases. We curate every treatment based on the specific needs of an individual—because your cancer is as unique as you are.

Some treatment options to take advantage of in conjunction with rife machine therapy includes:

  • Laetrile therapy – Vitamin B17 breaks down into glucose, benzaldehyde, and hydrogen cyanide in the body. The latter of which—benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide—are theorized to have anticancer properties. Laetrile therapy offers vitamin B17 in specific doses to shrink tumor sizes and combat cancerous cells.
  • Cryoablation therapy – Cryoablation refers to using extremely cold temperatures to destroy cancerous tissues. This is done by injecting a cold gas, usually argon, into the cancerous tissue, then allowing it to thaw and die.

There are over 30 alternative therapies to help create your perfect plan. Talk to the experts today and take control of your future with Immunity Therapy Center.
