DR Gold's Thorough Review of Hydrazine Sulfate - a credible cancer therapy

On February 21, 2008, I placed a blog on MedTruth, "A Dog Has a Better Chance of Recovering from Cancer Than You Do," in which I attempted to show, in dramatic fashion, that the public is being "hoodwinked" from using hydrazine sulfate for human cancer, principally by the U.S. National Cancer Institute... continued at


Mistletoe Cancer Therapy

There are many profound and fascinating theories at the heart of anthroposophy. Anthroposophical medicine is a complex system - an art and a science of living and healing - that includes the integration of spiritual, emotional and physical components. It was founded again in the present day by the anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner (an Austrian Swiss physician, metaphysical pioneer and healer (1861-1925)) in the early 20th century... continues at


Surviving Chemo and Radiation. Now how do I fix myself?

“What is the VERY Least I Can Suggest to a Loved-one After Surviving Chemo?”
Clients will ask “what can I do for my Mom or partner or loved-one who is dead-set on following the ONLY options provided by their doctor(s) and now are suffering the consequences of harsh side-effects. (Chemo, surgery and radiation are still the only 'approved' methods to ‘combat’ cancers.)
There are debilitating side-effects that come with that type of “choice” that we have assumed to be the only possibility. Because I’m used to not guessing, but looking thru my microscope for answers, including to see what’s a clear physical reality, I never really say / give / pass along too much advice about someone else’s state of health and how to help others out who are not present – just isn’t right to do so... BUT, here are some suggestions that are a bare minimum that will be a very welcome respite for a damaged body - at

The clinic count in the Tijuana - Los Playas - Bonita areas have varied from 2 dozen to to a handful over the last 50 plus years. Patients come mainly from the USA and Canada and then also a few people visit from South America and Europa (where there are also alternative clinics). As far as I can tell the first clinics began in the 1950s with Dr Gerson leaving New York and then the Keller and the Hoxsey Clinics later, then the Dr Contreras Clinic (later renamed the Oasis of Hope Hospital by one of the sons). 

All of these original clinics were established by American citizens (all but two) who had to have an ownership agreement with a Mexican national (who would have 50% or more ownership). Occassionally that Mexican owner was a doctor or naturpath or something close to that... no worries - they were largely silent partners. The number of Americans have decreased steadily - for reasons of finance and what is being offered and integrity.

Promising cancer alternative treatments were increasingly regulated and side-lined in response to increased regulations and pressures, particularly after passage of the Kefauver-Harris Amendments to the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act in 1962. So, in the 1970s, the Tijuana clinics proliferated with the upsurge of an interest in the forbidden - including Laetrile (amygdalin). By 1978, 70,000 US cancer patients had taken Laetrile for cancer treatment seriously and many of those people had gone to the Tijuana area clinics to receive it. The clinics' popularity plateau-ed in the mid 1980s after some lawsuits ended poorly for the Laetrile supporters and the American medical authorities were never going to let this kind of glitch happen again and set up the groundwork. 

Although many new clinics opened after that, more than a dozen have also folded in the past 20 years. The turning point for the clinics came with passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which facilitated greater cooperation among the antifraud authorities of Canada, the United States and Mexico. In 1994, the tripartite members of NAFTA formed the Mexico-United States-Canada Health Fraud Work Group, or MUCH, whose brief is to strengthen the 3 countries’ ability to prevent cross-border health fraud. With that came the automatic, undebated assumptions that alternative cancer therapies came under this heading of 'fraund'.

Under the auspices of MUCH and its members, regulatory crackdowns began in earnest early in 2001. Prior to that, the clinics would do what was requested of them by the tight grip of the Mexican authorities who would bear down - it was lucrative - they listened to the highest bidder - quite simple. All clinics had to pay the monthly graft - never an exact amount - never to be skipped. Closing down a clinic for the Americans had to be worth it. 

The clinics were also badly affected by the general downturn in travel in 2001 and 2002. The established cancer authorities north of the Mexican border never let up the pressure of malignment and negative PR, especially after an alternative therapy would be 'proven' to be insufficient or even bogus (always manipulated trials - lots of good information on this re Vitamin C, Laetrile, Burzynski method, Essiac, etc). As these downward trends continued, Tijuana clinics are reduced further in numbers.

It always amazes me how smart the Mexican clinics' PR is and how they never mention Laetrile or ozone/oxygen anymore as that somehow seems to be 'uncool' and not representing what these clinics feel the American and Canadian cancer patients are looking for. Persoanally, the standard alternative cancer treatments should not be mixed up with all of these interesting sounding "immune augmenting, detoxing, rejuvenating, etc" methods added-on.  

The odd clinic is resort-like while some of these clinics are tawdry. And if you have stage 4 cancer and have been told to go home to die by your mainstream doctors and clinics, you really don't care about whether there's a beach or park-like setting or not. Some of the worst looking clinics would be my first choice and some of the best looking ones are all about your wallet and 'feel good' BS with a lot of smiling faces gathered for the big happy group photo-op!
One such slick place is founded by a family that did/does really well with a (not worthwhile imho) multi-level vitamin company and used this overblown importance to 'treat patients' with same and a few add-ons. Nice for a detox and rejuvination holiday of sorts. Certainly not an untense cancer clinic.
For example, from time to time, the Gerson clinics have been in really crappy buildings in poor neighborhoods and yet the care was all that mattered. Some clinics have no language barriers and some do. Most of the staff in most clinics are Mexican and speak a modicum of English and don't earn a lot... it's not as if they'll pop over the border and take some continuing education classes in San Diego. Sometimes the doctors do not speak English, yet somehow everyone makes do just fine.

Some of these clinics are in-patient in nature (eg Sanoviv, Issels Immuno-Oncology, Baja Body-Mind, Gerson) and in others you are expected just for the daytime and you'll be returning state-side in San Ysidro for overnighting (eg International BioCare, Immunity Therapy Center, Hoxsey / BioMed). In some patients are given both options and are flexible - in-patient and out-patient (eg International BioCare, Oasis of Hope). This makes a huge difference in rates between these two categories.
Two motels close to the San Ysidro border crossing were amazing at how they catered to their guests who came back each night after therapy. The Best Western and the Knights Inn in San Ysidero - the latter is very inexpensive and very close to border-crossing activities - and don't know for sure if they are still available.
The first night I arrived at the Knights motel, it was very late and dark and as soon as I put my head down it sounded like WWIII had erupted outside with endless copters, loudhalers, and sirens and search lights - very near the infamous border crossing! In the morning all was peace and joy - so to speak.
Patients staying in the motels are destined for the Mexican clinics and quietly gather each 8am for their morning ride - the very inexpensive bus trips that have their own particular routes, cover all the clinics and also make return patient arrangements.
Occassionally a driver will see an old face after years and hugs all round and tears of joy... the person is still alive and coming back for a boost! These Mexcian cancer bus drivers were amazingly big-hearted men. 

People occassionally exchange advice, ancedotes, supplements and support. Even once a woman from New Zealand passed a plastic baggy around with 2/3 of her breast tumour that had been removed with the Hoxsey method - such JOY! 
But not a classy health conscious restaurant in sight!


the late Harold W. Manner, Ph.D., and G Edward Griffin on metabolic therapy and Laetrile

The late Harold W. Manner, Ph.D., coined the term "mbolic therapy" and is famous for his research of Laetrile. Abnormalities at the cellular level are diagnosed and then corrected by normalizing the patient's metabolism (including the removal of build-up of "toxiceta substances" in the body and strengthening the immune system, so the body can heal itself)... and this could include laetrile. He was interviewed in 1978 by Acres USA: more at

Cancer: The Forbidden Cures 2010 Documentary

a revelatory 2010 documentary by Massimo Mazzucco, an Italian film maker, that describes alternative cancer therapies that have been suppressed over the last hundred years. Treatments such as Essiac and Laetrile, the Hoxsey and Gerson therapies, and Dr. Tullio Simoncini studies (whether one agrees with his 'science' or not - and personally I certainly don't)


Straight up questions we should ask our doctors about a metastesis diagnosis:

  • If cancer cells actually travel through our blood circulatory system, then why is donor blood not screened for cancer cells?
  • If cancer cells are to be in our blood, then why are we not warned by authorities, to stay clear of a cancer person's blood - ie have no contact... like we are told with HIV/aids?
  • If cancer cells 'metastasize' into the brain, why are they able to pass through the blood-brain barrier that functions as a vital filter to prevent harmful substances from entering the brain including blood itself?
  • If brain tumor cancer cells arrive in the brain without the blood they were travelling in, how is it that they cannot wriggle loose and travel in the opposite direction, ie, back out through the blood brain barrier and back into the blood stream and head to another organ, or back out through the cranio-sacral fluid (proven to exist since 1950's)?
  • If cancer cells also travel via the lymphatic system to organs, how then does cancer 'metastisize' to bone where there is no lymphatic fluid?
  • If cancer cells travel via the bloodstream, why are there virtually NO cancers of the blood vessels or the heart given the exposure to all that surface?
  • If secondary tumors are due to cancer cells travelling through the blood or lymph system, then why do they rarely travel to adjacent tissues that would be easiest to get into, for example, from the uterus to the ovary or from a cervix to a neighboring muscle or vagina - rather than a further away lympn node; or from a prostate to the bladder floor rather than a further away hip bone?
  • The medical theory of the travelling cancer cell holds that the travelling cells are the same kind as those at the original site i.e., if a cancer arises in the breast and “metastasizes” to the bones, the cancer cells in the bone are believed to be breast cancer cells. But this is not so and has been proven... some head scrathching... ?

Metastasis Theory Scrutiny
Pathologists claim that they are able to detect the origin of a secondary cancer with biopsies, tissue sample stains and tests for antibodies - “immuno-histochemical techniques”. But tracking live cancer cells is not the same as tracking proteins. Proteins may or may not be released from a tumor's surface and depends on a number of factors - the most important but not the only one being whether the tumour is in an active or healing phase; whether certain important bacteria are available to help break down the tumor and whether there are specific enzymes and other co-factors available through the blood supply or at the tumour site. If it were that straight forward, biopsies would be accurate (and they certainly aren't).

"Best yet unsatisfactory explanations of the Mechanisms of Metastasis:
"Metastasis is an enormously complex process that remains to be a major problem in the management of cancer. The fact that cancer patients might develop metastasis after years or even decades from diagnosis of the primary tumor makes the metastatic process even more complex. Over the years many hypotheses were developed to try to explain the inefficiency of the metastatic process, but none of these theories completely explains the current biological and clinical observations. In this review we summarize some of the proposed models that were developed in attempt to understand the mechanisms of tumor dissemination and colonization as well as metastatic progression.”

As long it is assumed (by the public and inside health research circles) that cancer cells, bacteria, microbes and viruses act against our mamalian organisms - that it's 'good guys versus bad guys in our inner terrain - 'games' and 'fighting' some evil forces that harming and destroying us - then we remain rooted in dark-ages fear and superstition and missing the obvious.

If we cut our finger, nature immediately mediates with a number of slick, appropriate, complex reactions that cannot be made to be evil and 'against us' no matter what we may try. If we have an acute inflammation, our bodies react so very smartly - assuming we do not mess with it with counter-measure interventions. In fact the Cancer Agencies count on Nautre to bail them out - when chmo has been administered to the point of wrecking the bone marrow such that NO more white cells can come out to combat the effects of the highly threatening poisons, THEN the patient is told to go home and recoup - in other words, let Mother Nature attempt to give you some life back in your bone marrow and throughout. 
If we choose to remain ignorant and cannot accept the incredible creative almost indomitable healing intelligence that pervades in Nature and in our human bodies.

Charlotte Gerson passed away in 2019. There are several Gerson Clinics in Mexico and one is the original clinic (using only the Max Gerson methods) that focusses mainly on very specific and strict nutrition and detoxing with a tad of enzymes' therapy (added in 1999).


Hulda Clark’s “Cure for All Cancers”

Dr Hulda Clark (the Dr is a PhD) is famous for her best selling books including The Cure For All Cancers - found in every health food store in North America. Clark also had a Mexican clinic in Tijuana that was very taudry, on a good day. The American authorities 'persuaded' the Mexican authorities to shut her cllinic down in 1998. She then stayed under the radar as there was a warrant for her arrest in the US (practicing medicine without a licence and a few other items) and continued working and selling supplements (awesome quality), sessions and books state-side till she was caught in 1999. 

Clark believed that cancer is caused by parasitic infections and specific toxins and people bought in to this (evidence of a low level of critical thinking). She tests for “Ortho-Phospho-Tyrosine”, and a hormone called HCG (YES!). She was certainly very apt at sussing out which parasites one might have with her basic electro-dermal-screening equipment -  called a “syncrometer” and finding parasites was blatantly lacking by most regular North American clinics. Her case studies in her books were not successes but merely descriptions of sessions she had treated without knowing if any were succesful or whether they had died or whatever other therapies were of benefit.

Her persecution by the American authorities inspired very healthy financial campaigns by the alternative healing world of the 1990s (substantial) to donate to her. Her zappers are still used - yet in Live Blood Analysis I can see destruction, not healing. 


About the GREAT ROYAL RAYMOND RIFE - his successes, his microscopes, his anihilation. 

Rife discovered that a simple electromagnetic wave wasn’t enough to destroy a microorganism. Instead he found a radio frequency wave was readily accepted by the body if it was emitted by a gas within a glass tube.

by Bob Wallace

Anyone who has studied the history of cancer therapies quickly becomes entangled in the history of cancer therapy supressions. Sadly this is a huge topic with many twists and turns - and some have been forgotten.
Some of these therapies have been stymied, stealthfully marginalized and some still exist in remote locations. The cancer therapy that was highly effective, cured the most improbable cases and caused the most government-sanctioned deceit was the work of Royal Raymond Rife. To some he's a slightly familiar name and to some of us he's a hero!
To understand how this scientist, his brilliance and why his precious work was destroyed, one would first want to take a walk down memory lane and appreciate the conivings of the times.
Bob Wallace, an investigative journalist, was very kind and offered his article on the health world's menace to give us som ebackground back in The Healing Journal days (my hard-copy health magazine 2003 - 2009): Dr Fishbein,

Dr. Morris Fishbein (1889-1976) originally studied to be a clown. Realizing he could make more money as a doctor, he entered medical school (where he failed anatomy), then barely graduated. He never treated a patient in his life.

Why is he so important? Because he became head of the AMA, a position that he used to enrich himself and crush legitimate therapies out of existence. He appeared to be motivated solely by money and power.

As head of the AMA (and editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association from 1924-1949), he decided which drugs could be sold to the public based only how much advertising money he could extort from drug manufacturers, whom he required to place expensive ads in the JAMA. There were no drug-testing agencies, only Fishbein. It was irrelevant if the drugs worked. 

Fishbein was a shakedown artist. Yet, today, there is a Morris Fishbein Center for the History of Science and Medicine at the University of Chicago. 

The AMA, a State-backed guild which today has a near-stranglehold on the medical profession, was founded in 1847 merely as a social and scientific organization. Its original purpose was totally appropriate. It was in their private (and the public’s) interest for practitioners to get together to trade knowledge, and, for all the outward seriousness of the organization, to have some fun. The original purpose always seems to get lost, though. Some members always want to use the State to reduce the supply of practitioners (which increases income) and eliminate competition (which also increases income, and, much more seriously, reduces innovation). This happened with the AMA, which is why it is now a danger to the health of the American people.

In 1900, while attending the annual AMA convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, three doctors came up with the always-destructive but all-too-human idea of using the AMA as a front, in order to form a closed corporation for their financial benefit. A constitution, bylaws and a charter were created which appeared to give the members of the AMA a say in the activities of the corporation, whereas in reality the three directors had complete control. These three formed smaller political machines in every state, which they controlled through the main corporation.

In 1924, not surprisingly (perhaps inevitably) one of the directors became involved in a scandal and had to resign. He appointed Fishbein to take his place. Fishbein ultimately took control of the AMA, and by 1934 owned all of the stock. In his new position he was able to assume dictatorial control of the state licensing boards and made it as difficult as he could for any doctor who did not join. He, and the three doctors who formed the corporation, were little more than extortionists, ones who made millions by using the power of the State. The AMA, which started out as a legitimate organization, rapidly became crooked. And Fishbein was the main cause. The worst of Fishbein’s sins was his destruction of Royal Raymond Rife.

Royal Raymond Rife

I don’t know if Royal Raymond Rife was legitimate or not. I believe the evidence leans towards his being a once-in-a-century genius. 
He was born in 1888 in Elkhorn, Nebraska, and died in 1971, at age 83. He grew up with a passion for microscopes, microbiology, and electronics. 

He was brilliant. There can be no doubt about that. He invented technology still used today in optics, electronics, radiochemistry, biochemistry, ballistics, and aviation. Some of his many inventions included a heterodyning ultraviolet microscope, a microdissector, and a micromanipulator. He studied at John Hopkins, received 14 major awards, and was honored with an honorary doctorate from the University of Heidelberg. He worked for Zeiss Optics, the US government, and several private employers, the most notable of them being Henry Timkin, who made millions manufacturing roller bearings.

Most people have never heard of Rife. 

Royal Raymond Rife

By 1920, Rife had built the world’s first microscope that was strong enough for the him to see a virus (he sometimes had to painfully adjust his microscope for up to 24 hours to get the specimen into focus). By 1932, after 12 years and five microscopes, he perfected his technology and had constructed the largest and most powerful of them, which he called his "Universal Microscope." It had almost 6,000 different parts and could magnify objects 61,000 times their normal size. With this two-foot-tall, 200-pound microscope, Rife became the first to see a live virus, and until recently, his microscope was the only one which could do this.

Modern electron microscopes, although more powerful than Rife’s invention, instantly kill the viruses they are focused upon. Rife’s microscope left the viruses alive, so they could be studied.

Rife’s genius was first introduced to the public in the San Diego Union newspaper in 1929, and was followed by an article in Popular Science in 1931. Articles describing his great scientific breakthroughs appeared in the established scientific press in for the first time in late 1931 in Science magazine, as well as California and Western Medicine.

In 1944, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, published a detailed article about Rife in their national journal, with his microscope the focus of it. But what was revealed to their readers was not only Rife’s microscope, but how he was able to destroy disease-causing pathogens.

As far back as 1920, Rife had identified a virus that he believed caused cancer. He called it the "BX virus." He made over 20,000 unsuccessful attempts to transform normal cells into tumor cells. He failed until he irradiated the virus, caught it in a porcelain filter, and injected in into lab animals. Using this technique, he created 400 tumors in a row.

He began subjecting this virus to different radio frequencies to see if it was affected by them. He discovered what he called the "Mortal Oscillatory Rate" (MOR) of the virus. He successfully cured cancer in his 400 experimental animals before he decided to run tests on humans.

What Rife was doing was using resonance to kill the virus. Everything vibrates at different frequencies. If the resonance is correct, it can be used to shatter, just as a singer can use it to break a wineglass. By finding the proper resonance, Rife was able to shatter the virus. This is why he called it the Mortal Oscillatory Rate.

Rife claims he also discovered the frequencies which destroyed herpes, polio, spinal meningitis, tetanus, influenza, and many other dangerous, disease-causing organisms. All told, there were over 50 infectious diseases that he apparently discovered cures for.

How did Rife do this? He painstakingly obtained the MORs by tuning the dial of the frequency generator while observing the sample pathogen under his microscope. When a frequency was discovered that destroyed a particular microorganism, its dial position was marked. The actual frequencies were determined later after his experiments. What he did, he apparently did intuitively and unwittingly, and it is doubtful he completely understood the theoretical method he utilized. For one thing, there was at that time no theory to explain what he was doing. (In doing research for this article, I have come to the conclusion that Rife was so far advanced over currently available theories that he could not explain what he was doing.)

In the summer of 1934, one of Rife’s close friends, Dr. Milbank Johnson, along with the University of Southern California, appointed a Special Medical Research Committee to bring 16 terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife’s San Diego Laboratory and clinic for treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients – if they were still alive – after 90 days.

Some of the other scientists and doctors Rife worked with were: E.C. Rosenow, Sr. (longtime Chief of Bacteriology, Mayo Clinic); Arthur Kendall (Director, Northwestern Medical School); Dr. George Dock; Alvin Foord (pathologist); Rufus Klein-Schmidt (President of USC); R.T. Hamer (Superintendent, Paradise Valley Sanitarium); Whalen Morrison (Chief Surgeon, Santa Fe Railway); George Fischer (Childrens Hospital, N.Y.); Edward Kopps (Metabolic Clinic, La Jolla); Karl Meyer (Hooper Foundation, S.F.); and M. Zite (Chicago University).

At first, the patients were given three minutes of the appropriate frequency every day. The treatment consisted of the patients standing next to one of Rife’s generators, which irradiated them. It was much the same as standing in front of a large fluorescent light. The researchers soon learned this was too much of the treatment. Suspecting the human body needed more time to dispose of the dead toxins, they reduced the time to three minutes every third day.

After the 90 days of treatment, the committee concluded that 14 of the patients had been completely cured. After the treatment was adjusted, the remaining two of the patients responded within the next four weeks. The total recovery rate using Rife’s technology was 100%. The treatment was painless, and the side effects, minimal, if any. Except for building the generators, the total cost was a little electricity (today, the cost of treating a cancer patient averages $300,000 were person. That’s a lot of money, and the cancer industry is big business.)

Rife wrote in 1953, "Sixteen cases were treated at the clinic for many types of malignancy. After three months, 14 of these so-called hopeless cases were signed off as clinically cured by the staff of five medical doctors and Dr. Alvin G. Foord, M.D., pathologist for the group."

In 1937 Rife and some colleagues established a company called Beam Ray. They manufactured fourteen of Rife’s "frequency instruments." Dr. James Couche, who was present at the clinic, used one of Rife’s machines with great success for 22 years, long after the AMA had banned it.

Then, to Rife’s, and the nation’s great misfortune, Fishbein heard about Rife’s frequency machine.

Fishbein sent an attorney to make a token attempt to buy out Rife. Rife refused. Although no one knows the exact terms of the offer, it was probably similar to the one Fishbein made to Harry Hoxsey for his herbal cancer remedy (which Fishbein, in court, had to admit worked on skin cancer): 

Fishbein and his associates would receive all profits for nine years and Hoxey would receive nothing. Then, if they were satisfied that it worked, Hoxsey would begin to receive 10% of the profits. When Hoxsey refused, Fishbein used his political connections to have Hoxsey arrested 125 times in a period of 16 months. The charges (based on practicing without a license) were always thrown out of court, but Fishbein harassed Hoxsey for 25 years. The only good thing that came out of it is that the scandal forced Fishbein to resign.

Fishbein then offered Phil Hoyland, an investor in Beam Ray and an electrical engineer who had helped build the frequency instruments, legal assistance in an attempt to steal the company from Rife and the other investors. A lawsuit ensued.

The trial of 1939 put an end to the proper scientific investigation of Rife’s frequency machine. Rife, who was not as resilient as Hoxsey, became unglued. Unable to cope with the savage and unfair attacks in court, he crumbled, turned to alcohol, and became an alcoholic. This, even though he won the case. Unfortunately, the legal bills bankrupted Beam Ray, and it closed down. Fishbein used his power within the AMA to halt any further investigation of Rife’s work. 

In 1950 Rife joined up with John Crane, who was an electrical engineer. They worked together for ten years, building more advanced frequency machines. But in 1960 the AMA closed them down. Crane was imprisoned for three years and one month, even though fourteen patients testified as to the effectiveness of the machine (the forewoman of the jury was an AMA doctor). Rife died in 1971, from a combination of alcohol and Valium. He had spent the last one-third of his life as an alcoholic. 

What happened to all of those who had supported Rife? By the end of 1939 most of them were denying they ever knew him, even though 44 of them had honored Rife on November 20, 1939 with a banquet billed as "The End to All Diseases" at Dr. Milbank’s Pasadena estate.

Arthur Kendall, who worked with Rife on the cancer virus, accepted almost a quarter of a million dollars to suddenly "retire" in Mexico. This was a huge amount of money during the Depression. Dr. George Dock was silenced with an enormous grant, along with the highest honors the AMA could bestow. Everyone except Dr. Couche and Dr. Milbank Johnson gave up Rife’s work and went back to prescribing drugs. Johnson died in 1944.

The medical journals, supported almost entirely by drug company advertising revenues and controlled by the AMA, refused to publish any paper by anyone on Rife’s therapy. Generations of medical students graduated without hearing of Rife’s breakthroughs in medicine.

And what happened to Rife’s decades of meticulous evidence of his work, including film and stop-motion photographs? Parts of his instruments, photographs, film, and written records were stolen from his lab. No one knows who was behind it. No one was ever caught.

Rife’s documentation for the cancer clinic was lost when he lent them to Dr. Arthur Yale a few years later. Barry Lynes, who reintroduced Rife’s work to the public in 1986, in his book The Cancer Cure that Worked, wrote, "Documents show the clinic existed and succeeded in curing cancer. And doctors who continued treating seriously ill people with success because of what the frequency instrument accomplished in 1934 tell the real story, as do signed reports from cured cancer patients in later years."

While Rife attempted to reproduce his missing data, his virus microscopes were vandalized. Pieces of his Universal Microscope were stolen. Earlier, arson had destroyed the multi-million dollar Burnett Lab in New Jersey, just as the scientists there were preparing to announce confirmation of Rife’s work. But the last blow came later, when police illegally confiscated the remainder of Rife’s 50 years of research.

Fortunately, his death was not the end of his electronic therapy. A few humanitarian doctors and engineers attempted to reconstruct his frequency machines and keep his work alive.

But do these modern machines work? I don’t know. Modern reseachers are trying to replicate the life’s work of what may been one of the greatest geniuses in history.

If you’ll look at the reviews of Lynes’ book at, there are people who swear by Rife’s machines. A doctor I know (who lives outside the US and wishes to remain anonymous) told me, "I have a feeling the Rife machines that are now available to us do not have the correct frequencies...the machines I’ve experienced have limited settings and transmit a general range of frequencies." But she uses something similar, specifically the LISTEN and the much more advanced BEST machines, invented by James Clark.

She told me several of her case histories, one of which I will reproduce here: "[I was treating] a nine-weeks-old baby that was blue and dying...doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with her. I found Ross River fever (mosquito transmitted) and the baby began to respond within two hours of giving her the frequencies, and went on to make a full recovery, just after one treatment. The parents did demand a blood test for the baby to confirm the Ross River virus – which it was! There was nothing the doctors could have done about it. I used to think that somehow the electromagnetic frequency gave the body the right information to deal with the virus. We now know how this works – due to Sharry Edwards, (another practitioner in the States I’ve studied with, who uses low-frequency sound for healing). She has access to great lab equipment, and last year applied the frequencies representing various parasite, bacteria and viruses to blood containing these pathogens. Under a special high-powered microscope, she observed that the frequency shattered the "mask" – the protein DNA that the pathogen would cloak itself with – and expose the invader to the immune system, would immediately attack and destroy."

This is essentially what Rife discovered over 80 years ago. We are 80 years behind where we should be, because of one despicable man, Morris Fishbein, who used the State to halt the advance of medicine, and to line his own pockets.

The LISTEN and BEST machines are legal in the US...but not totally. Said this doctor: "Practitioners in the States do not use the ‘imprinting’ facility of the machines – that is, broadcasting the frequency. Since this broadcasting is not permitted by your laws, the device is added to the machine when we buy them."

In other words, it is illegal in the US to use the machines to attempt to cure disease. The proper parts aren’t even on the machine. It’s illegal for a doctor to even suggest such a cure is possible.

There are other instruments (and other inventors) who, past and present, have discovered the same thing Rife did. Gaston Naessons, Hulda Clark and Antoine Priore have invented similar instruments. All suffered persecution at the hands of the State. Are they legitimate? All I can say is that they had an enormous amount of support from their patients.

What would have happened if Rife had suceeded, and Fishbein had failed? If what Rife was doing actually worked, there would be a lot of people who would have not died of cancer. A lot of the medical profession would have ceased to exist. It certainly didn’t take a doctor to operate Rife’s machines.

Scientists and researches could have devoted more time and money to things we are far behind on, like growing organs and limbs. The hundreds of billions of dollars that has flowed to the unholy alliance of the AMA, FDA, drug industry and the State, would have never been.

The cure for these problems? Remove the State backing from the AMA and FDA, and unleash the power and creativity of the free market. Many people have been brainwashed into thinking the State protects them. The truth is the exact opposite.

Here's an inside look: a grainy video that shows how they worked in the lab:

The above article by Bob Wallace was proudly re-printed in The Healing Journal - an alternative health magazine distributed in BC, Canada - 2003-2009. This publication was distributed in about 400plus locations and never encountered any problems and then one day, the publisher had an un-easy feeling and went to various small-town locations and found all of the magazines had disappeared - but only from the librairies! That many eager readers at Xmas time?
Hmmm... so it turned out that the BC Fraser Valley Library system (about two dozen librairies) had an eager, religious employee who had sounded an alarm at this blasphemous article demeaning mainstream wondrous cancer therapies!
Apparently a lawyer was called in by that libary system and sure enough, all the publications in the system were recalled. It took weeks of pillar-to-post phone calls to find the reason (poor head-honcho librarian...) as apparently it was none of the publisher's business why the magazines had been taken away.
There turned out to be a minute chance that the heirs of Morris Fishbein's estate might sue this small conservative library system(apparently not me, the author or many other who had already publishe dit over the decades)! When hit with this, the publisher (me) was speechless and could only stammer that any self-respecting relation of Fishbein would be too embarrassed to be identified as a relation and come forward, especially as the iarticle was rather kind and the information could have been more acridand hard hitting. All copies had been destroyed by the librairians... just to be sure!
