How to Buy a Rife Machine

Are you looking how to buy a Rife Machine? Does anyone even manufacture a Rife machine that is like Royal Rife used in his lab?[1]


  1. 1

    Keep in mind that no one today makes a Rife Frequency Machine like Royal Rife's machine.
    His unit would flash for milliseconds to ½ minute and kill whatever specimen he had in the field. His machine could be detected miles away due to the radio waves. The FCC would not allow a machine like this in our modern day world.
    • Another reason modern day Rife machines are different from the original Rife is due to the evolution of modern day technology there have been many advancements made to the technology. If Royal Rife was alive today we believe his Rife devices would not look like 1950′s technology but would have advanced along with newer technologies.
    • A perfect example is with digital technology we are now able to use different wave types to deliver frequencies. Even his assistant changed Rife’s original machine.[2]

    Look for the important features in a frequency unit before you purchase one
    • The most important feature to look for is a Rife unit using an RF carrier (Radio Frequency) and a Plasma Tube (also known as a Ray Tube). Royal Rife and Hoyland used RF which was a big part of their success. The reason is very simple: the audio frequency range is carried further with a high frequency range generally in the meg (million) range. Certainly, any frequency over 1 meg is in the range that can be used as a carrier wave. Most units on the market today don’t use RF.
    • It is very important that the unit you choose has ray tubes.Royal R. Rife used ray tubes and so did Hoyland.
    • The ray tubes use a higher voltage than electrical conductive devices (ie metal accessories) to push the frequencies deeper into the body using photons (light) as a carrier vs electrons. There is also the magnetic effect produced by gas filled tubes (that can be tested) especially when combined with Radio Carrier wave penetrating deep into the body.
    • Note that Plasma Tubes (Ray Tubes) emit a strong e-field (electric field), but not much Gauss. To achieve Gauss, one should use a device with electromagnetic coils - a completely different machine.
    • Majority of the people like the “soft, warm energetic” feeling of the hand held ray tubes vs the electrical tingling felt from metal electrodes. People say while using the hand held ray tubes they enjoy watching the glow & feeling of the glass tubes, finding it has a calming & relaxing effect on their body.
    • Another option is the stand alone ray tubes which can go higher in power however you have the distance factor and typically outputs in a 360 degree radius. Even though the stand alone ray tubes are higher in power than a hand held it is suggested you be near the tubes to get better results.
    • A unit that comes with light emitting diodes (LEDs) is a great feature. Great health benefits can be attained by using LEDs, such as better eyesight and clearing up many skin condition. Faster healing from the LED’s and the healing effects from the Rife frequencies combine as a powerful, effective tool.
    • There can certainly be an advantage to a unit that can be applied to the feet and hands at the same time. Many units will come only with hand cylinders, which are good for dealing with an upper body cold. However, someone with circulation problems in the feet and legs would greatly benefit from using a unit with both hand and foot electrodes.

    Consider the cost. Units can range from $500 for a simple frequency generator with electrode pads. For a unit with plasma tubes, prices generally run $5000-$10,000 and higher.
    • Years ago units sold used modified function generators off the shelf. Some units today are manufactured from the ground-up specifically to be a "Rife Machine".
    • Rife machine manufacturers generally build a relatively small number of machines, so the cost can be high. A function generator is low powered. It is more expensive to build a circuit that has the power required in a Rife machine.
    • Another added cost is crystal control. Crystal control greatly adds to the accuracy of a frequency that is needed in a Rife unit. An example would be 9.7 Hz for tendons. You do not want 9.6 or 9.8 because your results will be diminished.
    • Another example, 1444Hz is to normalize testosterone in men and 1445 is to normalize testosterone in women. You certainly wouldn’t want a male using the machine and have the frequency drift up towards 1445.
    • By the time you add foot plates, hand cylinders, reusable electrodes (sticky patches), and LEDs, you certainly add to the cost of an off the shelf function generator

    Make sure you purchase a machine that actually reads out in Hz. As new frequencies come out you also want to have the capability to add & store these new frequencies to your Rife machine.
  5. 5
    Make sure to purchase a unit with a gating/pulsing function. *Why Gating and Entrainment? Rife and Hoyland used gating/pulsing because it made their units more effective. Abrams who worked with Rife used 3.5-4 Hz for gating. Dr. James Bare, a leader in the field of frequency technology, recommends the 20-30-40 Hz range for gating.
    • It is generally believed that the higher the frequency the higher the gating. Rife’s 1939 instrument, which ran in the MHz range, had a 60 cycle gating. What is gating? Gating is another form of modulation.
    • Entertainment is defined as: “the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. It is also defined as a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles.” This principle of entertainment is universal in nature.

    "AN RF Carrier wave is necessary" in order to piggyback the frequency wave deeper in to the body. Keep in mind Rife’s original machines were high-frequency devices. He found that the organisms' MORs were mostly in the radio frequency (RF) range, very high. However Hoyland (Rife's assistant) changed all of that by converting Rife’s discovered MOR frequencies and translating them down to a lower frequency.
    • The result was a whole new set of set of frequencies, MORs, waveform, etc producing a whole new machine.
    • Keep in mind that Rife and Hoyland discovered only a few frequencies. For example: Actinomycosis or Strep-tothrix, Anthrax, B or E Coli Rod, B or E Coli Virus, BX Virus Carcinoma, BY Sarcoma, Gonorrhea, Pneumonia or Spinal Meningitis, Staphylococcus Pyo-genes Aureus, Streptococcus Pyo-genes, Syphilis Tetanus, Tuberculosis Rod, Tuberculosis Virus, Typhoid Rod, Typhoid Virus, Worms From Aubrey Scoon.
    • Today there are thousands of frequencies used for many different ailments or healing. If you are wanting to run Rife's original frequencies then you have to have a unit that has an RF carrier and that can run up to at least ~4 MHz (4 million hertz). Some units may run high enough in megahertz however they do not have an RF Carrier wave.

    Does the Wave Type Impact the Killing Off of Organisms?' With modern day Rife machines that use digital technology we are now able to use different wave types to deliver frequencies. Square waves, commonly used in today's modern rife machines, couldn't be produced by the Royal Rife's older equipment.
    • Square wave has been found to increase the die off of pathogens. However the Pulsating Square Wave, Triangle, and Sawtooth waves have shown to have even better results than the Square wave.[3]

    What is the difference between Hand-Held Metal Wands vs. Hand-Held Ray Tubes? (Rife Machine Apparatuses)
    • Rife devices that directly generate the highest Rife frequencies electrically through conduction (ie metal apparatuses) rather than by means of a ray tube can generate the frequencies conductivity, however their systems do not deliver the same types of energies.
    • Hand-held ray tubes and ray beam tubes deliver a broad spectrum of energies, ranging from infrared, to electromagnetic fields, to electrostatic fields, to conductive electron flow (electricity), to light in the visible spectrum and beyond thru what is called "induction".
    • Both methods (induction and conduction) were developed by Dr. Rife and his two business partners, John Crane and John Marsh.
      • One method is induction used in Ray beam tubes & the hand-held Ray tubes. This method of induction was used by Dr. Rife delivering a broad spectrum of energies. This method delivers rife frequencies into the body using the “Induction” none-contact method. Testing, called “Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis”, have been done showing the frequencies penetrate the body demonstrating the method that Dr. Rife used.
      • The 'other method' is conduction with metal electrodes. This method uses “Conduction”, delivering rife frequencies through a direct-contact method of electrical positive & a negative polarity. This method was used by John Crane and John Marsh, not Royal Rife. The “Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis” scientific tests show that frequencies delivered by this method pass through the skin and penetrate into the body.
        • There is a drawback to using this method but it is overcome by using an RF radio carrier wave. If there is no RF radio carrier wave used then the low audio frequencies will only travel through the body's connective tissues. However if an RF carrier wave is used to piggyback the lower audio frequencies then the rife frequencies will also penetrate the cells.

    Do you want to run Multiple Frequencies? Those desiring to running multiple frequencies simultaneously during a session are seeking the benefits of saving time.
    • However what is not realized is that running multiple rife frequencies simultaneous with "one" radio carrier wave reduces the power "per" frequency. Each frequency wave is divided up by the total wattage/power output thereby decreasing the power delivered per frequency. In turn then the user has to repeat the frequencies to get the needed dose or even worse not enough power to be even effective.[4]
  10. 10
    A quality rife machine emits frequencies with a plasma tube that uses RF (radio carrier wave) within the assigned ISM range (Industrial, Scientific and Medical bandwidth) ISM Bandwith. It will offer gating/pulsing, duty cycle, a frequency range up to at least 40,000Hz and a crystal timer for accurate frequency emissions Crystal Oscillator.
  11. 11
    A low quality rife machine will only be able to run for a few hours before overheating, it may be limited in its frequency emission range, support for the device will be limited and they may not even offer a Plasma Emissions (like Rife used). Note that some sellers provide a function generator with contacts and mislabel it as a Rife machine.
