It was 1931 and America was struggling to recover from a severe economic depression. Millions of unemployed took to the streets and charities and other social systems were overwhelmed. Certainly not the best time to find support for new and unusual inventions, especially in the medical and scientific fields, where ambitious men maneuvered to strengthen their power and influence. The still young pharmaceutical industry expanded and people were looking for a way to make money. The Americans were tired of poverty and were all looking forward to a better future.
Royal Raymond Rife, Jr. was born on May 16, 1888 in Elkhorn, Nebraska. His father was a mechanical engineer by profession and originally came from Ohio. His mother was Ida May Chaney Rife and came from Dryden, Iowa. As the child eight months alt his mother died, so his father brought the child to his sister, Nina Colber Rife Dryden, who had spoiled him. In 1905, at the age of 17, he graduated from high school and went to John Hopkins University to study medicine. His interest in bacteriology took him out of his studies, which would have given him an MD after his name, but in addition to his studies with John Hopkins, he later also attended Heidelberg University in Germany, where he developed all micrographs for the Atlas of Parasites which he developed for the university. The university praised the quality of his work so much that in 1914 she was awarded an honorary doctorate in parasitology.
His first job during his studies was at the Carl Zeiss company, in the offices in New York City and later in the offices in Germany, where he worked directly with Carl Zeiss, Hans Luckel and other scientists in research, construction and during 1912 Rife to San Diego, California, where he founded his first research laboratory. In the same year he married Mamie Quill. It is reported that Rife worked with the United States Navy before and during World War I and was hired as Lieutenant Commander USNR. It is also reported that Rife and his wife traveled extensively to and from Europe shortly before the war through his connections with the Zeiss company. During these years of study, work and travel are said to Rife have acquired a collection of fine hunting rifles. Production of fine microscopes collaborated. Apparently he worked with this group for five years while studying at Heidelberg University.
During 1912 moved Rife to San Diego, California, where he founded his first research laboratory. In the same year he married Mamie Quill. It is reported that Rife worked with the United States Navy before and during World War I and was hired as Lieutenant Commander USNR. It is also reported that Rife and his wife traveled extensively to and from Europe shortly before the war through his connections with the Zeiss company. During these years of study, work and travel are said to Rife have acquired a collection of fine hunting rifles.
Rife began his career as a research pathologist. He was a medical researcher of the very highest qualifications. Dr. Rife recognized that successful pathology relies on vision. What we cannot see, we cannot identify in order to cure. He built his first microscope in 1920 that was powerful enough to see a virus.
In the years shortly before the Great Depression, Dr. Rife apparently for both the United States government and Carl Zeiss Optics. It has been reported that he has also received a research grant in biochemistry from the Andean Anthropological Expedition Institute, so that he is obviously doing private research on his own. Some of his technological inventions are still used today in the fields of optics, electronics, radiochemistry, biochemistry, ballistics and aviation. At some point his financial base dissolved and he took a job as a chauffeur for multimillionaire Henry Timkin. Rife and his wife moved into an apartment above Timkin's garage.
As Timkin of some of Dr. Rife learned, he left Rife build a motor for a speedboat called Kitty Hawk, which belonged to Timkin. This engine developed 2700 horsepower and pushed the boat to a record breaking 87 miles at an average speed of XNUMX miles per hour. It is said that Dr. Rife held a speed record on motor boats so there is a possibility that Rife the boat was driving and building the engine.
Dr. Rife's contact with Henry Timkin worked well for both. Timkin made roller bearings. The plain bearings collapsed in its end products due to irregularities in the steel used to manufacture the plain bearings. Rife designed and built an X-ray machine that checked every bearing coming from the factory and sorted out every defective bearing before it could be shipped as an end product. This saved the company millions of dollars. Timkin was so pleased that he was Rife set up a monthly lifetime payment for the manufacture of the specialized X-ray machine for its production environment.
Mrs. Timkin was sick. The disease got worse and her doctors couldn't find the cause of her problem. Dr. Rife guessed that it might be something she ate. He did a research in her kitchen and was able to do that with his microscope bacteria find in their spice cupboard that made them sick. With the relief from the source, her illness disappeared. Amelia C. Bridges, the wife of Henry Timkin's sister and business partner, also suffered from a persistent physical problem. Dr. Rife was able to work with her and discovered the cause of her illness.
When she died in 1940, she left Dr. Rife $ 50.000 to continue his work. Henry Timkin and his partner Bridges were from Dr. Rife and so impressed with his work that they set up a fund to fund a fully equipped laboratory in Point Loma, California and to pay for a research program in the resulting laboratory. This was the platform that Rife was able to use the talents and knowledge that he had cultivated and developed over the years of his training and experience. Here he worked and made his discoveries. It is said that Rife at that time up to twelve laboratory assistants worked for him.
1916 was a historic time in which the most powerful microscopes in the world were able to magnify 2500 diameters. With this instrument, a scientist could see a mold, lots of parasites, and lots of bacteria, but no one had seen a virus. Rife visualized, designed and built a magnification instrument that worked on a different principle than the microscopes that existed at the time. His first microscope, which allowed him to see a virus, was built in 1920. Royal Rife built four more models of optical microscopes that were far more powerful than any others that existed during his time or to this day. The microscopes he built allowed him to observe a living virus and observe it in its changing life forms, proving that microbes and virus are able to switch from one form to another depending on the medium in which they are located. Several famous doctors of his day from Northwestern University, Mayo's Clinic, and others worked with him and his microscopes and validated his work. He would sometimes work up to twenty hours to keep a virus in focus. The microscope focus problem prompted some doctors, who were invited to observe what was possible with his microscopes, so as never to see a virus.
Royal Raymond Rife was the inventor of the universal microscope, which he presented to the world in 1933. It was not only the most powerful optical microscope ever built, but also the most versatile. The Universal used all types of lighting: polarized, monochromatic or white light, dark field, slit ultra and infrared. It can be used for all types of microscopic work, including petrological work, or for crystallography and microscopy. According to a report submitted to the Journal of the Franklin Institute, it had an enlargement of 60.000x and a resolution of 31.000x. The eyepiece of this instrument was binocular, but also had a removable segment deeper in the body for monocular observation at 1800x (x = power) magnification.
One of the most attractive features of this microscope is that, unlike the electron microscope, the universal microscope does not kill the samples to be observed and observes the natural living samples under all circumstances, ie it does not rely on fixation or staining to ensure visibility or definition.
Rife achieved this by using different types of lighting to make the virus visible in its natural colors. He first turned to this technique, which used light to stain the test subjects, because he realized that the molecules of the chemical stains were far too large to penetrate the structures he was trying to visualize. In addition, the typical stains used in microscopy are sometimes fatal to the samples and he wanted to see them in their living state.
One factor that made these lifelike images possible was the use of a Risley counter-rotating prism Rife, This consists of two circular, wedge-shaped prisms that are mounted face to face and inserted into a gear lock and aligned so that they rotate each prism in opposite directions with an extended handle by 360 degrees. Rife built a special mount under the stage to hold these instruments and through which he directed a powerful monochromatic beam of his patented lamp. With different declinations of the refracted and polarized beam, normally invisible bodies would become visible in a color that is peculiar to their structure or chemical structure. All optical elements in this microscope are made of block quartz, which allows the passage of ultraviolet rays.
That way showed Rifethat viruses and bacteria have a natural range of refraction in different lighting conditions. This indicated that, unless otherwise stated, organisms could be classified with their refractive index in the Risley prism under a universal microscope.
Started around 1920 Rife with research into tuberculosis. In a short time it became clear that it was for Rife there was something else about this disease that was below that of the bacterium was. This promoted his work in the development of his "virus" microscope, two of which preceded the Universal, sometimes called Number 3 Rife Microscope is called. Rife was the first researcher known to have isolated and photographed the tuberculosis virus and many others. Finally it succeeded Rife also to isolate a cancer-specific virus and determine that it radiated a distinctive purple-red glow. He called this virus the BX virus: Bacillus X, found in every case of carcinoma that he examined.
With the help of Dr. Arthur I. Kendall managed to cultivate the BX virus using a special nutrient medium that Kendall had developed for virus breeding. They initially had little success until Rife accidentally left a tube in the glow of an ionizing lamp. He noticed that the tube was cloudy, indicating activity. Then they performed the culture in a partial vacuum or an anaerobic environment and stimulated it with the ionizing light. Her work was the first successful cultivation of viruses outside of a living host.
Rife extracted the cancer virus from an "unrefreshed human breast mass". He filtered, cultivated and recultivated them over 10 times over a period of two hundred and forty hours. They injected the last generation culture into the breast region of a living rat. The rat would inevitably develop a tumor. Rife would then remove the tumor, extract the virus and repeat the process. He did this more than four hundred times from the original sample, thereby categorically proving that the BX virus definitely induced carcinogenic tumors.
Dr. Royal Rife conducted more than 400 experiments in which he implanted a cancer virus into a mouse and when a tumor grew in the mouse, he carefully removed the tumor and found the same cancer virus in the tumor. He never experimented with people. After Dr. Rife Having learned to see a virus, the next obvious goal was to develop a method to destroy the virus or microbe without harming the host.
Since the days of Dr. Nikola Tesla scientists knew of the connection of electrical, magnetic and radio frequencies with the operation of the human body, so turned Rife electromagnetic frequencies because he could expose the bacteria and the virus to such frequencies and observe the effects. He discovered that every microbe and virus had a specific frequency to which it was susceptible. Rife called this the "lethal vibration rate", a term that is still used today. He kept watching and seeing how the virus was destroyed when a certain frequency was applied. He set up tables showing which frequency settings would destroy which microbes or viruses. Experimenters still use these frequencies today, but few have the means today to see how the frequencies affect the virus or microbe they are trying to destroy. The microscopes Rife were fundamental to his success, and without his microscope there would have been no treatment.
Dr. Rife began extracting a variety of malignant tissues in 1931. Dr. Rife got more and more different tumors from more clinical sources. 20.000 of these tissue samples were taken and cultured. By studying these cultures, he found a uniform virus in every cancer tissue. He called it the BX virus. Both Dr. Rife as well as Dr. Kendall has successfully demonstrated the isolation of the BX virus from over fifty research pathologists working with well-known institutions across the country.
In the course of his experiments, Dr. Rifethat the successful use of ultraspectroscopes depends on the use of ultraviolet light. He also discovered that the ulromicroscope did not require fixation (staining or special preparation) of the sample before viewing. Dr. AL Kendall, a renowned pathologist at Northwestern University Medical School, contributed a material he developed that allowed both scientists to observe, demonstrate and photograph filterable viruses in 1931. It was also through the use of this material that both scientists were able to observe and prove the characteristics of the pleomorphism of viruses that change from one form to another by changing the medium they occupy. Without the ultramicroscope it would not have been possible to demonstrate that such a change was possible and that such an action took place and has taken place over the centuries. This phenomenon had given the medical profession a secret that had not been understood in medicine or healthcare until now and that is still not widely accepted or even considered by US medicine.
On November 3, 1929, the San Diego Union reported the progress of the work of Rife, In June 1931, Popular Science magazine reported to Americans nationwide about Royal Rife and its treatments. During this period, many articles and news about these remarkable achievements appeared. Doctors in southern California started from Rife and hear his work. They came from all over the United States to see what he was doing and to check his results.
In November 1931, Dr. Milbank Johnson forty-four doctors from Los Angeles to his home in Pasadena, California Rife to honor for his work. Dr. Royal Rife was honored as the man who at this meeting found a way to end all diseases. The banquet was called The End Of All Disease "and the attending doctors were Dr. Arthur I. Kendall, Dr. George Dock, Dr. S. Fosdick Jones, Dr. OO Witherbee, Dr. CM Hyland, Dr. Harold Witherbee, Dr. George Dock.Alvin G. Foord, Dr. BO Raulston, Dr. VL Andrews, Dr. Linford Lee, Dr. Milbank Johnson, Dr. George Kress, Dr. Rufus B. Von klein Scmidt, Dr. Albert Ruddack, Dr. Wayland Morrison, Dr. Richard Winter, Dr. FCE Mattison, Dr. M. Aubrey Davidson, Dr. Joseph Heitger, Dr. WH Sooins, Dr. EMHal I, Dr. Walter V. Breem, Dr. CW Bonynge, and were also invited Dr. EW Butt, Dr. CE Zobell, Dr. AS Heyt, Dr. B. Winter Gonin, Dr. CE Zobell, EW Lanson, Dr. 0.C. Grunner, Dr. AH Zeiler, Dr. James B. Couche, Dr. RW Hammack, Dr. KF Meyer, Dr. CD Maner, Dr. Arthur W. Yale, Dr. Ellis Jones, Dr. EL Walker, Royal R. Rife, Dr. EC Rosenow, Senior ..., Dr. Allen B. Kanaval, Dr. EFF Copp, Dr. Sanwel J. Tattison, Dr. Royal Lee, Dr. J. BrandonBruner and Dr. Lee DeForest.
Finally, a group of doctors led by Dr. Milbank Johnson of Pasadena, California, in 1934 in an experiment sponsored by the University of California, took sixteen terminally ill patients from a San Diego hospital, and then took them to apartments on the Scripps estate in La Jolla, California, where they were treated by for a period of ninety days that of Dr. Royal Rife recommended frequencies. Fourteen of the patients were declared cancer-free at that time. The other two required an additional month of treatment to be fully cured.
In 1939, Dr. Rife officially invited to speak to the Royal Society of Medicine in London, England, which had recently reviewed its results. He also received invitations to lectures in France and Germany. Dr. R. Seidel reported and announced in February 1944 in the journal of the Franklin Institute Rife Ray tube system therapy for cancer treatment. Dr. RifeTreatments for viral and bacterial infections and his microscopes were described and praised by the Smithsonian Institute in an article published in the institute's publication in 1944.
The doctor who was Dr. Royal Rife helped the most to gain recognition for his work, Dr. Milbank Johnson. Dr. Milbank Johnson was taken to hospital by doctors in 1944, but died there of food poisoning. Historians apparently have been unable to Johnson's files on his treatments with Dr. Rife to find.
The head of the American Medical Association, a man named Morris Fishbein, heard of this discovery and immediately sent his people to try to acquire the exclusive rights to the technology. Rife declined his offer, which was probably as ridiculous as that Fishbein's latter offered Harry M. Hoxsey for his cancer cure (also declined).
Rife and his employees had founded a five-member company called Ray Beam Tube Corporation to support the Rife Machine. He had brought an electrical engineer into the company to take over production. Fishbein is said to have funded the engineer to fight against Rife and finally after a long and expensive lawsuit brought the end of production. Rife won the process, but the cost of the process caused the company's financial destruction.
A New Jersey laboratory that Rife's repeated work in New Jersey burned in March 1939 while the scientist who carried out the program Rife visited in San Diego. Lots of papers in Rife's laboratory in San Diego disappeared, as did parts of his microscope. Rife was emotionally destroyed by his demonstration in court and his entire life program was dissolved. Doctors who attended his treatment program were threatened by the American Medical Association and the state of California with the loss of their licenses if they continued the program. A doctor brought the equipment to Mexico and put it on Rife Treatments continued for many years and another continued to quietly treat over 2000 patients in Southern California, but most gave up their equipment instead of fighting government agencies.
It was written that Rife after losing his laboratory and because of the mental and emotional consequences of the lawsuit, he became an alcoholic and did nothing really important with the rest of his life. Tried during 1950 Rife with John Crane to develop energy instruments. John Crane apparently had the title of the existing microscope, but without knowing that it was operating. During 1960, medical agencies were reportedly infiltrated Crane's laboratory and destroyed its existing instruments and records. John Crane was charged with fraud by the state of California and put in prison. Rife is said to have gone to Mexico at this time. Dr. Royal Rife died on August 11, 1971 of Grossman Hospital in El Cajon, California, from a heart attack after spending the last year of his life in an El Cajon nursing home. He was without contacts and money. It wasn't an appropriate way to reward a true American hero.
Imagine for a moment that you have spent more than two decades of painstaking research - that you have discovered an incredibly simple, electronic approach to cure every disease on the planet caused by viruses and bacteria. In fact, it is a discovery that would end the pain and suffering of countless millions and change life on earth forever. Surely the medical world would be in a hurry to receive you with every conceivable award and financial reward. You would think that, wouldn't you? Unfortunately, the greatest medical genius in recorded history suffered a fate that was literally the opposite of the logical scenario mentioned above.
In the nineteenth century, Semmelweiss fought hard to convince surgeons that it was a good idea to sterilize their instruments and use sterile surgical procedures. Pasteur has been ridiculed for years for his theory that germs can cause disease. Dozens of other medical visionaries went through hell simply questioning the medical status quo of the day, including legends like X-rays and his X-rays, Morton for promoting the "absurd" idea of anesthesia, Harvey for his theory of blood flow, and many others in recent decades: WF Koch, Revici, Burzynski, Naessens, Priore, Livingston-Wheeler and Hoxsey.
