Electromedicine, was first documented in 1890 at the American Electro-Therapeutic Associations annual conferences on the therapeutic use of electricity and electrical devices by physicians on ailing patients.
Since 1890, electromedicine has evolved significantly:
Nikola Tesla – in 1895 discovered alternating current and invented the AC generator, published many papers, and invented numerous electrical devices including Tesla coil therapy instruments Alexander Gurvich ñ in 1922 discovered “biophotons” and Mitogenic” “mitotic” waves. His work is the first documented evidence of “biophotons,” and became the basis for the design of later bioelectromagnetic therapy devices.
Georges Lakhovsky – in 1925 invented the multi-wave oscillator which produced a spectrum of electrical frequencies that restored cell equilibrium in the body, and published a paper in Radio News magazine titled “Curing Cancer with Ultra Radio Frequencies.”
Royal Raymond Rife – in the 1930’s demonstrated how his frequency research and mitogenic impulse-wave technology (specifications in public domain) could cure cancer.
Ed Skilling – 1950’s break through discoveries with space-age electronics, transmission and communication with the cells and the body’s immune system, results supercede all prior electromedicine technologies.
Electromedicine & Nikola Tesla
In 1895, the Niagara Falls Power Company opened for the first time and within a year, sent alternating current (AC) to Buffalo, NY, twenty-five miles away, thanks to Nikola Tesla AC generator. Cities throughout the world followed suit and made commercial AC power available to the general public, even miles from the power generating station. As a result, Tesla’s high voltage coil devices, which were powered by AC, started to become widely known and applied. In 1898, Tesla published a paper that he read at the eighth annual meeting of the American Electro-Therapeutic Association in Buffalo, NY entitled, “High Frequency Oscillators for Electro-Therapeutic and Other Purposes. “He states that “One of the early observed and remarkable features of the high frequency currents and one which was chiefly of interest to the physician, was their apparent harmlessness which made it possible to pass relatively great amounts of electrical energy through the body of a person without causing pain or serious discomfort.” Coils up the three feet in diameter were used for magnetically treating the body without contact, though ten to a hundred thousand volts were present “between the first and last turn.” Preferably, Tesla describes using spheres of brass covered with two inches of insulating wax for contacting the patient, while unpleasant shocks were prevented. Tesla concludes correctly that bodily “tissues are condensers” in the 1898 paper, which is the basic component (dielectric) for an equivalent circuit only recently developed for the human body. In fact, the relative permittivity for tissue at any frequency from ELF (10Hz-100 Hz) through RF (10kHz100 MHz) exceeds most commercially available dielectrics on the market. This unique property of the human body indicated an inherent adaptation and perhaps innate compatibility toward the presence of high voltage electric fields, probably due to the high transmembrane potential already present in cellular tissue. Tesla also indicates that the after-effect from his coil treatment “was certainly beneficial” but that an hour exposure was too strong to used frequently. This has been found to be still true today with the Tesla coil therapy devices. On September 6, 1932, at a seminar presented by the American Congress of Physical Therapy, held in New York, Dr. Gustave Kolischer announced: “Tesla’s high-frequency electrical currents are bringing about highly beneficial results in dealing with cancer, surpassing anything that could be accomplished with ordinary surgery.”
Electromedicine & Alexander Gurvich In 1922, the Russian doctor and histologist Alexander (Gurwitsch) Gurvich (1874-1954) and his wife discovered that living cells separated by quartz glass were able to communicate vital-cell information. Numerous experiments suggested that this information was transmitted by invisible light waves in a UV frequency spectrum passed by quartz and stopped by window glass. Dr. Gurvich coined the phrase “mitogenic” “mitotic” wave since it was observed during enzymatic reactions and mitosis. “Gurvich determined that muscle tissue, cornea, blood and nerves are all transmitters of this special energy.”4 His work is the first documented evidence of “biophotons,” coherent light emitted by animal and plant cells, and became the basis for the design of later bioelectromagnetic therapy devices. It was not until the early 1960’s that Leningrad State University succeeded in capturing the mitogenic rays with sensitive photomultipliers.
Electromedicine & Georges Lakhovsky
In 1925, Georges Lakhovsky published a paper with the explicit title of “Curing Cancer with Ultra Radio Frequencies” in Radio News. His expressed philosophy was that “the amplitude of the cell oscillations must reach a certain value, in order that the organism be strong enough to repulse the destructive vibrations from certain microbes.” He goes on to say, “The remedy in my opinion, is not to kill the microbes inContact with he healthy cells but to reinforce the oscillations of the cell either directly by reinforcing the radio activity of the blood or in producing on the cells a direct action by means of the proper rays.” Lakhovsky’s Radio-Cellulo-Oscillator (RCO) produced low frequency ELF all the way through gigiahertz radiowaves with lots of “extremely short harmonics. “ He favored such a wide bandwidth device so that, “The cells with very weak vibrations, when placed in the field of multiple vibrations, finds its own frequency and starts again to oscillate normally through the phenomenon of resonance.” As a result, Lakhovsky’s RCO is now more often called MWO (multiple wave oscillator) for these reasons. The MWO uses a Tesla coil and special antenna with concentric rings that induce multiple sparks between them. Details can be found in his US paten #1,962,565 and compact, portable screw-in-lightbulb-style-vacuum-tube upgrades seen in his US patent #2,351,055. Lakhovsky’s article and patents can be found on line at: http;//www.resresearch.com/lakhusps.htm. His book, The Secret of Life was first published in English in 1939. In 1949, a review of Lakhovsky’s work was published a Waves That Heal by Mark Clement. Besides this technical information, the life of Lakhovsky is a study in suppression and summarized in a paper by Chris Bird: [read more]
Electromedicine & Royal Raymond Rife In 1934, the University fo Southern California appointed a Special Medical Research Committee to study 16 terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital that would be treated with mitogenic impulse-wave technology, developed by Royal Raymond Rife. After four months the Medical Research Committee reported that all 16 of the formerly-terminal patients appeared cured. Rife’s high voltage gas tube device was designed, with the aid of his unique microscope, by experimentally witnessing the effects on microbes and bacteria, finding what he believed were the particular frequencies that resonated with their destruction. “In 1938, Rife made his most public announcement. In a two-part article written by Newall Jones of the San Diego Evening Tribune (May 6 & 11), Rife said “We do not wish at this time to claim that we have “cured cancer, or any other disease, for that matter. Bet we can say that these waves, or this ray, as the frequencies might be called, have been shown to possess the power of devitalizing disease organisms, of “killing” them, when tuned to an exact wave length, or frequency, for each organism. This applies to the organisms both in their free state and, with certain exceptions, when they are in living tissues.” “He had the backing in his day – this was in the 1930’s – of such eminent people as Kendall, a professor of pathology at Northwestern University and Millbank Johnson, M.D., who was on his board, along with many other medical men, when he began to treat people with this new ‘ray emitter.’ There were articles written on the Rife technique. In the Journal for the Medical Society of California and other medical journals. Suddenly, Rife came under the glassy eye of Morris Fishbein of the AMA and things began to happen very quickly. Rife was put on trial for having invented a ‘phony’ medical cure. The trial lasted a long time. “In 1953, Rife published his cancer report in book form, History of the Development of a Successful Treatment for Cancer and Other Virus, Bacteria and Fungi. A turning point occurred in 1958, when the State of California Public Health Department conducted a hearing which ordered the testing of Rife’s Frequency Instrument. The Palo Alto Detection Lab, the Kalbfeld Lab, the UCLA Medical Lab, and the San Diego Testing Lab all participated in the evaluation procedure. “All reported that it was safe to use. Nevertheless, the AMA Board, under Dr. Malcolm Merrill, the Director of Public Health, declared it unsafe and banned it from the market.” All these distinguished scientist, back in 1958, had been carrying on significant research in the biological and immunological treatment of cancer for years. It is still only now that the United States orthodoxy is beginning to catch up. Because of the suppressive actions of the American Cancer Society, the American Medical Association, and the Food and Drug Administration, our people have not had the advantage of the European research. This work has been ignored because certain powerful individuals backed by large monetary grants can become the dictators of research and suppress all work that does not promote their interests or that may present a threat to their prestige.
