Who is Dr. Royal Rife?

Royal Rife is considered one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th Century. He is credited in the book, “The Cancer Cure That Worked “, as the man who discovered a cure for cancer and many other diseases… simply by using vibrational energy.

Rife learned that different species of life have their own electromagnetic “signature” – a pattern of oscillation based on its individual genetic chemical blueprint. It’s different for all. Dr. Rife discovered that viruses, bacteria, and parasites are particularly sensitive to their own specific “bio frequencies” and could be destroyed by intensifying those frequencies until it literally explodes… like an intense musical note that can shatter a wine glass! In order to “explode” the microbes, Rife invented a “frequency beam ray” machine.

As Christopher Bird reported in the New Age article, regarding bacterium/viruses, “…many lethal those of tuberculosis, typhoid, leprosy . . . appeared to disintegrate or ‘bIow up’ in the field of his microscope.”

What Royal Rife actually built initially was his ” Universal Prismatic Microscope “. This incredible microscope amplified his view by up to 60,000 times! This allowed him to view live viruses in controlled environments. Rife was the FIRST PERSON in the world to actually see (and photograph) live viruses! Rife found a means to building this microscope with a very long optical path with specially-ground quartz prisms in the barrel of his microscope. In addition, he determined that white light, which contains all wavelengths of visible light, was not suitable for high-magnification optics, and used a “Risley” prism between his light source and the sample, thus illuminating the sample with a single frequency of monochromatic light (very similar to high-definition research microscopes of today which use lasers).

Royal Rife’s microscope was a stunning advance. Unlike the electron microscope, Rife’s microscope made it possible to study living bacteria, viruses, fungi, and so forth. An electron microscope kills it’s specimens. Royal Rife’s remarkable breakthrough used a new approach to bend light. As an end result, Rife was able to prove that bacteria could change their form (or die), because he and others could literally watch it happen!

Rife then began beaming different resonance frequencies on these microorganisms to study the effect. In effect, what he found was that bacteria could transform into cancer causing viruses. Rife implanted his cancer-causing bacteria into rats. Rife inoculated 411 lab animals with this virus, created 411 tumors, and then eliminated all 411 of them. He did the same with many other diseases. From here, Rife made the startling discovery that the bacteria could change into a completely different form if the “medium on which they were living” was slightly altered. In other words, Rife’s cancer causing substance was, in some forms and in association with some environments within the body, deadly. But in other forms and in other environments, benign. His cancer causing substance could be changed back and forth from one to the other. The implications of this discovery are enormous. Rife’s work demonstrated that cancer cells might be transformed to healthy cells again!

Up until the early 1950s, Rife spent his life perfecting this method. After nearly 20,000 unsuccessful attempts, Rife finally isolated and identified the human cancer virus, and named it Cryptocides Primordiales.

The discoveries of Royal Rife were presented to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington and the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia along with the frequency generators used.

A report from the Smithsonian Institution in 1944 validates Rife’s work. Titled “The New Microscope” by Dr. R.E. Seidel (report #3781) it states “Under the Universal Microscope disease organisms such as those of cancer … and other disease may be observed to succumb when exposed to certain lethal frequencies…” In layman’s terms, that means they used the Universal Microscope to watch as they used a frequency generator to kill certain virus cells, such as cancer. This report confirms… Rife’s frequency therapy did work!


This virus death ray was applied to cancers in rats and it worked. The next step was humans. The results were astounding. “14 out of 16 terminal patients cured!”

Here is Royal Rife’s report summary: “The first clinical work on cancer was completed under the supervision of Milbank Johnson, M.D., which was setup under a special medical research committee of the University of Southern California. Sixteen cases were treated at the clinic for many types of malignancy. After just 3 months, 14 of these so-called hopeless cases were signed off as clinically cured by a staff of medical doctors and Alvin G. Ford, M. D., pathologist for the group.” (Note: At the time of the study’s conclusion, the remaining 2 people were not cancer free; however, it is known that the other patients did eventually recover under Rife’s supervision.


Throughout the 1930’s, Royal Rife and associates continued their work. In 1940, Arthur W. Yale, M.D. reported that Rife’s discoveries were an entirely new theory of the origin and cause of cancer, and the treatment and results have been so unique and unbelievable “…that we may be able to eliminate the second largest cause of deaths in the United States.”

In a New Age Journal March 1976 article, the story of Rife’s cancer cure was detailed. Since then, Rife has been nominated for the “Alternative Nobel Prize” which is annually awarded in Europe as a protest to the more established, less risk taking Swedish honor. Yet, little notice of Rife and his miraculous discovery has infiltrated the establishment’s main stream awareness.

In a brief history of Rife written in 1954 by John Crane, he states that Royal Rife received an honorary Doctor of Parasitology (Science) degree from the University of Heidelberg in 1914. Crane further says that Rife received an honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of Southern California in 1936. “Dr. Rife” won 14 government awards for scientific discoveries. Where technology didn’t exist, Rife invented it. Examples include the first micro-dissectors, micro-manipulators, and heterodyning ultraviolet microscopes.

Perhaps his most special legacy is the incredible growing field of science he left behind for us. Today’s “rife machines” (inaccurately named) are finding their way into more and more homes everyday.
