Georges Lakhovsky, Bioelectric Pioneer
This page is dedicated to Antoine PRIORE, to his fantastic experiences he led during 25 years (1950-1975).
The appliances, that he conceived and used, emit a powerful electromagnetic field to irradiate the sick organism. The characteristics of this field, its modulations (the main element) are known only by him.
In this way he achieved the total curing which is also definitive and systematic for all tumours of animals.
In collaboration with several physicians and scientist of very high level, he established that his results are in proportion of the power of the field: systematically good for rats and mice, worse for bigger animals (rabbit, cat, dog), which requires a longer irradiation to sterilise the tumour.
Human beings : numerous attempts were carried out, often on patients considered as incurables by classical treatments.
These « attempts of compassion », were realized after the request of the patients, of the physicians in attendance, of the professors of the Faculty of Medicine. They all showed a spectacular improvement of the condemned patients, as well as a systematic regression of their tumour and sometimes the disappearance of it! (These observations were dealt with in medical reports).
The inconsistency of the results on human beings is due to the insufficient power of appliances because the organism must be totally immersed in the radiation and we can understand that what is enough to cure a rat is not to treat a man.
In fact, several experiences with a perfectly correct procedure, conducted mainly by Pr Pautrizel (Faculty of Bordeaux) and his collaborators, showed irrefutably that the action is indirect, acts partly on the tumour (apoptosis) but especially by an extraordinary stimulation of the immune system that is spread in the whole body.
(We have to mention that it is possible to collapse the immune system with an equal power by changing certain characteristics of the radiation).
Priore showed this duality of the effects in a set of experiments (see chapter moreover).
The immense problem of Priore (who established the basis of his discoveries from 1950) was the construction of appliances with releasing a considerable power, capable of treating human beings while preserving the control.
This struggle to reveal nothing, the wish to manage this enormous technical challenge -for his time- alone was the main cause of the failure in the recognition and the diffusion of his fantastic discovery.
After his death in 1983, several laboratories-including some prestigious one as the School of Physics-Chemistry of the Faculty of Science in Bordeaux actively sustained by the Regional Council of Aquitaine, EDF, Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique, national research department... etc- tried to find the results of Priore...Without any success.
Hope came from somewhere else...
The laboratory ARTEC group together academics and physicians in an independent association.
There, we have applied a different methodology since 1985 :
Investigating of witnesses, close friends, patients, physicians, gathering together the majority of the experimental data, dr Murzeau and collaborators made a huge and well documented file, specially of the first successful results -which require a more rudimentary material. This work lead on to the realization of appliances and the aim is the demonstration and understanding of the "Priore double effect".
Applying the principles of Priore, such as he formulated them, even though their scientific basis is very debatable, we obtained excellent results on the lymphomas of mice (cancer of the immune system).
We are in a position to propose a set of experiences using a simplified material of our conception, in order to validate this "double effect". This material is conceived by following the hidden principles of Priore, common to all his appliances.
These principles-simple in their terms but very delicate in putting them into practice- are developed in this site.
Between 1950 and 1975, thousands of animals were treated and cured of their incurables cancer. Here were managed these extraordinary expériments in direct collaboration with some of the best professors of the anticancerous center, the Faculty of Medecine of Bordeaux, and many members of the French Académy of Sciences. Several NOBEL PRICES have managed splendid experiments.
What Lakhovsky discovered was simply mind boggling: He postulated that all living cells (plants, people, bacteria, parasites, etc.) possess attributes which normally are associated with electronic circuits. These cellular attributes include resistance , capacitance, and inductance. These 3 electrical properties, when properly configured, will cause the recurrent generation or oscillation of high frequency sine waves when sustained by a small, steady supply of outside energy of the right frequency. This effect is known as resonance. It's easiest to compare it with a child swinging on a playground swing. As long as the parent pushes the swing a little at the right moment (the correct 'frequency'), the child will continue to swing high and continuously. In electronics, circuits which generate these recurrent sine waves can be called electromagnetic resonators, but more commonly they are referred to as oscillators. Lakhovsky tells us that not only do all living cells produce and radiate oscillations of very high frequencies, but they also receive and respond to oscillations imposed upon them from outside sources. This outside source of radiation or oscillations are due to cosmic rays which bombard the earth continuously. This stupendous realization, achieved during the golden years of radio, not only led to a new method of healing by the application of high frequency waves, but broadened appreciation for the newly emerging field of hidden science known as Radionics or Radiathesia.
When these outside sources of oscillations are in sympathy, that is they are exactly the same frequency as that produced by the cell, the strength and vigor of that cell will be reinforced and become stronger. If, on the other hand, these outside frequencies are of a slightly different frequency, rather than reinforce the cell's native oscillations, they might dampen or weaken them, resulting in a loss of vigor and vitality for that cell. The cells of disease causing organisms within an infected person, produce different frequencies than that of normal, healthy cells. For people or plants suffering from disease conditions, Lakhovsky found that if he could increase the amplitude (but not the frequency) of the oscillations of healthy cells, this increase would overwhelm and dampen the oscillations produced by the disease causing cells, thus bringing about the demise of the disease causing cells trying to set up shop in the body. If he pumped up the amplitude of the disease causing cells, their oscillations would gain the upper hand and cause the person or plant to become weaker and more ill. Lakhovsky viewed the progression of disease as essentially a battle between the resonant oscillations of host cells versus the oscillations emanating from pathogenic organisms.
He initially proved his theory using plants. In December, 1924, he inoculated 10 germanium plants with a plant cancer that produced tumors. After 30 days, tumors had developed in all of the plants. He took one of the 10 infected plants and simply fashioned a heavy copper wire in a one loop, open-ended coil about 30 cm (12") in diameter around the center of the plant. and held it in place with an ebonite stake . The copper coil acted as an antennae or a tuning coil, collecting and concentrating oscillation energy from extremely high frequency cosmic rays. The diameter of the cooper loop determined which range of frequencies would be captured. He found that the 30 cm loop captured frequencies that fell within the resonant frequency range of the plant's cells. This captured energy reinforced the resonant oscillations naturally produced by the nucleus of the germanium's cells. This allowed the plant to overwhelm the oscillations of the cancer cells and destroy the cancer. The tumors fell off in less than 3 weeks and by 2 months, the plant was thriving. All of the other cancer-inoculated plants-without the antennae coil- died within 30 days. In his book, Lakhovsky shows pictures of the recovered plant after 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year. Three years later, with the original coil left in place, the plant grew into a very robust specimen.
Taking his cue from the germanium
experiments, Lakhovsky then fashioned loops of copper wire that could
be worn around the waist, neck, elbows, wrists, knees, or ankles of people
(or animals) and found that (given enough time) much relief of painful
symptoms were obtained. These simple coils, worn continuously around certain
parts of the body, would invigorate the the strength of the human cells
and increased the immune response which in turn took care of the offending
pathogens. At the time, when news spread of the success achieved with
these "Lakhovsky Coils", many Europeans were clamoring to get
their own and often had to wait for months due to the backlog (If you're
interested, you can make your own Lakhovsky Coils or obtain them ready
made from Educate-Yourself ). One of the main reasons why so many people
find copper wrist bracelets effective and beneficial is because the bracelet
is functioning as a Lakhovsky Coil (it's also providing minute trace amounts
of copper to the body, which helps too). To achieve the Lakhovsky effect,
it's important that the coil (or bracelet) is "open" and made
of copper. Closed rings simply don't work.
Geroges Lakhovsky publication of the English version of The Secret of Life at the very outbreak of World War II went unnoticed and little reviewed, but Lakhovsky's reputation for obtaining dramatic results with his amazing Multi wave oscillator gained world wide attention nevertheless. By 1941, he had made his way to New York, escaping the Nazi occupation of France. Mark Clement, in The Waves that Heal, describes how Lakhovsky was approached by many people and organizations hoping to capitalize on his MWO therapy. A film was made by an " enterprising beautician" which featured several cases following treatment with the MWO that "proved to be both interesting and convincing" . Lakhovsky was also approached by several hospitals in New York hoping to test his apparatus experimentally. Remarkable results were obtained from a seven week clinical trial performed at a major New York City hospital and that of a prominent Brooklyn urologist in the summer of 1941. Later editions of The Secret of Life detailed many of these cases. What seemed like a promising development in the use of the MWO in America quickly faded after Lakhovsky unexpectedly died in New York in 1942 at the age of 73. His equipment was removed from the hospital and patients were told that the therapy was no longer available. Except for this brief trial in New York, Lakhovsky's work remained completely unknown to the American public. Even the spectacular success of the New York cases were quickly forgotten; an unlikely lapse of memory in the natural scheme of things. It seems that hidden hands were at work when it came to obliterating the memory of Lakhovsky's Multi-Wave Oscillator in America.
THE MULTI-WAVE OSCILLATOR
The original Multi-Wave Oscillator
was designed and built by French engineer, Georges Lakhovsky from the
1920-s to the 1940-s. Lakhovsky viewed the nucleus of the cell with it's
"filament strands" as being similar to an electronic oscillating
circuit, capable of sending and receiving vibratory information. Lakhovsky
believed that every cell in the body has its own rate of internal vibration.
The MWO is custom made per
order and normally requires two to three weeks for assembly. MWO is an
experimental, historical research instrument and no medical claims are
made. Unit includes the two copper tube antennas.There are also a pair
of stands that hold the antennas.
While developing this theory, I explained how thoroughly I was convinced that science will discover, some day, not only the nature of microbes but the radiation which they produce, but also a method of killing disease bacilli within the human body by means of the proper radiations.
The researches I have made by means of special apparatus have shown such results, that I believe my theory to be correct. This theory is that life is born from radiations, kept going by radiation and suppressed by any accident producing the destruction of the oscillatory equilibrium, especially by the radiations of certain microbes, which suppress those of the weaker cells.
Before going any further in our reasoning, it is necessary, in order to present the facts to the uninitiated reader, to imagine what oscillations really are.
The motion of a pendulum will be used for this explanation. When a pendulum is displaced from the position of equilibrium, it moves back and forth producing what are known as synchronous oscillations, until the energy stored is entirely exhausted. By means of a motor, a spring, or an electro-magnet, it is possible to keep the motion of the pendulum of constant amplitude, producing undamped oscillations.
If, on the contrary, the source of power is removed, the oscillations die down and it is necessary not only to re-apply the power sustaining the oscillations, but also to furnish additional energy to start the pendulum in motion. This oscillation of a pendulum reproduces exactly what happens in the cells of a living being.
Our organs are composed of cells formed of protoplasm containing various mineral matters and acids, such as iron, chloride, phosphorous, etc. It is by the combination of these elements that the cells detect outside waves and vibrate continuously at a very high frequency, probably higher than the period of X-rays or over all other vibrations known and measured today.
The amplitude of cell oscillations must reach a certain value, in order that the organism be strong enough to repulse the destructive vibrations from certain microbes.
The astrophysicians are actually carrying out experiments of great interest on the existence of vibrations, which have been called penetration rays and of which the frequency is higher than that of X-rays and of the alpha, beta and gamma rays of radium.
Such rays, according to the theory, are produced by the earth itself and some others come from outside space.
Accurate measurements have proven the correctness of this theory. Therefore, it is quite permissible to believe that these penetration rays, or at least some of them, produce the vibratory motion of living cells and consequently their life.
For instance, let us suppose a cell vibrates at a certain frequency and a microbe vibrates at a different frequency; the microbe begins to fight the cell through radiation, and sickness is started
If the cell cannot repel the stronger vibrations and if the amplitude of its own vibration is forced to decrease, the microbe gains in amplitude and its vibrations begin to decrease and stop those of the cells, bringing on dangerous sickness or death.
If, on the contrary,the living cell is started vibrating with the proper amplitude by inside or outside causes, the oscillatory attack is repulsed. Such is my theory.
The problem is somewhat similar to the situation in which a rescuer finds himself when, coming to help a friend in a dangerous situation,finds himself fighting hand to hand against strong aggressors. The rescuer does not dare to fire his gun, fearing to harm his friend mixed up with the aggressors in the melee.
Similarly, microbes and healthy cells are all exposed to electric or radio-active action, which could be used to destroy the unwanted rays and it is difficult to suppress them without harming or killing at the same time the cells which are to be treated. In fact, since Pasteur, scientists have been constantly searching for a means of destroying microbes. The great difficulty with all methods found was that in destroying, the bacillae cell was attacked too. The experience gained in cancer and tuberculosis treated with radium, X-rays, or ultra-violet rays, shows how difficult is the world of the investigators.
A NEW METHOD
The remedy in my opinion, is not to kill the microbes in contact with the 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.
During January, 1924, I began to build, according to this theory, and with the purpose of therapeutic applications, an apparatus, which I have called the Radio-Cellulo-Oscillator, with the firm belief that the cells vibrating at extremely short wave- lengths would find their own in the Hertzian waves, which have the properties of producing extremely short harmonics.
The cell with very weak vibrations, when placed in the field of multiple radiations, finds its own frequency and starts again to oscillate normally through the phenomenon of resonance.
This type of vibration are produced by the radio waves which I propose to use, is harmless, unlike those of x-rays and radium. Their application, therefore, does not present any danger for the operator.
I exposed in front of my apparatus, during long periods, a certain number of microbes in culture, which developed themselves normally. I, myself, have never felt the effect of these ultra
radio frequencies, although I remained for a great many days near the apparatus, during the treatment applied to the living cells.
It is only when two living beings such as a cell and a microbe, are in contact, that the rays produced by the Radio- Cellulo-Oscillator have any direct effect upon cellular structure.
The experiments which I carried out at the Salpetriere Hospital in Paris, in the service and with the collaboration of Prof. Gosset, were made with plants inoculated with cancer, and the results were described in a paper presented on July 26, last year, before the Biological Society. The text of this paper follows.
"One knows that it is possible to produce by inoculation of Bacterium tumefaciens in plants, tumors similar to those of cancer in animals. One of us obtained experimentally by this method, a great number of tumors. These had various degrees of development. Some of them dry up partially, but do not die entirely until the entire plant or at least the limb bearing the tumor dies.
Even removed by surgical methods, these tumors grew again on the sick limb."
THE RADIO CELLULO-OSCILLATOR
"We propose to describe in this paper, the action of electromagnetic waves of very high frequency obtained by means of the Radio Cellulo-Oscillator of George Lakhovsky.
This apparatus produces wave-lengths of the order of two meters and less, corresponding to 150 million cycles per second.
A first plant was submitted to the effect of the radiation one month after being inoculated with cancer; at this time small tumors of the size of a cherry stone were visible upon it. This plant was submitted to the rays twice, for three hours each time.
During the following days, the tumors continued to grow rapidly in the same ways as those on plants, which had not been submitted to the effect of radiations. However, 16 days after the first treatment, the tumors began to shrink and dry up.
A few days later the tumors were entirely dried up and could be very easily detached from the limb of the plant by merely touching them.
The drying action of the radio frequency radiations is selective and affects only the sick part of the plant.
Even the inside sick tissues were destroyed, although they were next to healthy cells in the center of the limb, showing that the radiations had not affected the healthy parts."
THE LENGTH OF TREATMENT
"Another plant was treated
in the same way, except that it was exposed 11 times, for three hours
each time, to the radiations of the oscillator.
These experiments show conclusively that plants innoculated with cancer an be treated and cured by means of the ultra radio frequency vibrations, whereas surgical treatment fails.
"In conclusion I wish to call the attention of the reader to the fact that I have obtained very conclusive results not only with a wavelength of two meters, but with longer and shorter wave-lengths. The main thing is to produce the greatest number of harmonics possible."
Such are the results of my researches with plants. At the present time, similar experiments are being carried out with animals and it seems that the effect on cancerous animals is the same as on cancerous plants.
I am highly pleased to present
my theory and the results of my work in a scientific review of the United
States, this great country, which has always been in the lead in the fight
against this terrible sickness, cancer, and whose sympathy and help I
would greatly appreciate.
Lakhovsky believed that living cells are batteries; the nucleus holds the positive charge and the cytoplasm carries the negative. If cells were irradiated with a range of electromagnetic oscillations, they could be "recharged" and thus rejuvenated. A range of frequencies is necessary because the cell and its parts respond to different frequencies
