The Waves That Heal

The New Science of Radiobiology

By Mark Clement edited with commentary by Riley Hansard Crabb

Bob Beck has loaned us a copy of the late Mark Clement's brief, illustrated review of Georges Lakhovsky's Multiple Wave Oscillator showing pictures of antennas, before and after skin cancers apparently cured by the Oscillator, and of cancerous plants returned to normal health by two means;1. Radio-Cellular Oscillator, and 2. Single Wire Oscillating Circuits

"On the Continent Lakhovsky's work attracted a great deal of attention in scientific circles, particularly in Germany and Italy. Italian investigators were among the first to study Lakhovsky's theories and put them to the test in laboratories and clinics. It was, of course, to be expected that the new science of Radiobiology should make a special appeal to the intellectual heirs of Galvani, Volta and Marconi. It is somewhat depressing to observe that in England, the country of Faraday and Clerk Maxwell, Lakhovsky's theories have not yet received the attention they deserve.

What are Lakhovsky's general theories? Mark Clement sums them up neatly in Chapter One of The Waves That Heal:
"The fundamental principle of Lakhovsky's scientific system may be summed up in the axiom 'Every living being emits radiation'. Guided by this principle Lakhovsky was able to explain such diverse phenomena as instinct in animals, migration in birds, health, disease, and, in general, all the manifestations of organic life.
"According to Lakhovsky the nucleus of a living cell may be compared to an electrical oscillating circuit. This nucleus consists of tubular filaments and chromosomes made up of insulating material and filled with a conducting fluid containing all the mineral salts found in sea water. These filaments constitute minute oscillating circuits endowed with capacity and inductance and capable of oscillating according to a specific frequency. They are comparable to the circuits, coils and windings of radio receivers."
I believe Clement's comparison of a body cell with a radio receiver is only half-true. The cell can also be compared with a radio transmitter when it is releasing energy. We are both radio-receptive and radio-active! Lakhovsky's theory should be acceptable to any occult scientist. The push-pull idea, the positive and the negative, the Law of Opposites, is basic to all forms and to all life at this level of existence. By inductance Clement means that radio-electricity can be induced or put into every cell of your body. By capacity he means that each body cell can hold a charge of radio-electricity can be induced or put into every cell of your body, the charge is put in through invisible but very real radio waves. These can travel unimpeded through any solid object!
"The living cell can thus play the part of a transmitter or receiver of exceedingly short radio-electric waves which give rise to high frequency currents in the circuits of the cellular nucleus. Now the vibration of an oscillating circuit is maintained by radiated energy. But where does it come from.


"Scientists have established the existence of highly penetrating waves to which, by reason of their universality, they have given the name of cosmic rays. These rays, generated by the interference of astral radiations, are capable of traversing dense metals and soils to a great depth. Lakhovsky has demonstrated the cellular oscillation of living organisms is maintained by cosmic radiation. According to him disease may be said to result from oscillatory dis-equilibrium due to either a deficiency or an excess of cellular radiation.


The Russian Lakhovsky Rejuvenation Machine

By Bob Beck

From the November 1963 journal of Borderland Research

In September 1963, Dr. L.O. Anderson, Anderson Research Center Director and BSR Associate, phoned me about a "marvelous electronic machine" purported to "cure" almost any human ailment. I've looked into dozens of these "modalities" every year; so with extreme skepticism I gathered instruments and took off to check another possible hoax.
I found a heavy spark-gap Tesla Coil inside a four-foot cabinet. This console was rigged to circular "antennas" and was partially shielded inside a home-built faraday cage in the living room of Dr. Anderson's friend. It hadn't functioned in over a decade, and had been given up by some twenty-odd medical instrument repairmen and engineers as unfathomable.


The machine, which had no nameplate or other identification, turned out to be a Lakhovsky "Multiple Wave Oscillator", or MWO. Fortunately the present owner had found patents and two books describing its operation. We were able to reconstruct the circuits and after several hours had it operating perfectly. The machine was not a hoax.
Lakhovsky did his research prior to world Ward II and died in 1942. No infringement can be involved in duplicating Lakhovsky's work, since his U.S. Patent #1,962,565 expired in 1951 and is in public domain. I have found from the book The Waves that Heal by Mark Clements that MWO's are extensively used in hospitals in France, Germany and Italy, and although tested in a New York hospital with fantastic success, MWO's remain practically unknown in the United States.
MD's testing Multiple Wave Oscillators reported up to 98% cures of terminal cancer, arthritis and other "hopeless" conditions. Case histories were complete with before-and-after photos. Often rejuvenation was demonstrated, not only in human beings but in plants and animals as well!
So, on Sept 18, 1963, I designed and built a modern MWO based on Nikola Tesla and Lakhovsky's original work and patents. Experiments with the MWO on some eighteen volunteers have demonstrated almost unbelievable results. At this writing, Oct 20th, every single subject, including myself, reports fantastic gains.
My mother, age 72, who has suffered from hypertension and glaucoma for many years, measured absolutely normal blood pressure the morning after her first treatment. And the eye tension, tested by her MD the week following, had dropped to a lower point than in the previous two years. Another woman with a long-standing back condition says she was permanently relieved in one 15 minute exposure. An asthmatic with chronic bronchial complications claims he is now symptom-free after two exposures and her husband with a bad dermatological condition of seven years history appears to be very definitely improved. Perhaps the most dramatic is Mr. N.V.C. who had broken his leg skiing last December. Because of an old polio complication the broken leg had never healed and flesh surrounding the fracture was in a very poor, waxy condition. After one exposure he phoned to say he had regained feeling in the area. The next day we made an "after" photo slide of nearly normal tissue.
A friend suffering allergies of long standing says she can now eat anything and her MD admits he is startled by her youthful appearance and new vitality. The Lakhovsky literature illustrated many such rejuvenations as an unexpected side effect of cancer cases. Subject's wrinkles disappeared along with the tumors!


Lakhovsky pointed out that all cells capable of reproduction contain in their nuclei "filaments" of highly conductive material surrounded by insulating media. This filament, which may be the RNA-DNA complex, is always in the form of a spiral or helix - in other words, a coil. Therefore, each will react as a tuned circuit if its resonant frequency can be approximated by an external oscillating coil.
Lakhovsky didn't carry this to its conclusion; however, I postulate that by exciting the nuclei with electromagnetic energy a "charge" can be induced by the long established principle of electromagnetic induction. This demonstratively raises the energy level and perhaps the vitality of every cell in the field simultaneously. Since each cell is an individual, and of slightly different physical dimensions, the exciting wavelengths must be multiple, and must span a broad frequency spectrum. Diathermy machines, limited to crystal-controlled single frequencies in the 27.255 MC region, can do nothing but heat the tissue; and yet this approach, abandoned by Lakhovsky in the 1930, can still be found in "modern" doctor's offices!
The Electromotive Force (EMF) produced by the MWO and induced in the cell nucleus, can raise the cell's metabolic rate by Electrolysis, and perhaps jog the RNA-DNA "memory" and reproductive capabilities to their level at an earlier, younger age, thus the rejuvenation. Even more subtle changes might be postulated, such as magnetic "progression" effects as evidenced by heavy water in magnetic fields.
By contrast, any chemical taken into one's system by mouth or by injection - such as vitamins, food or medicine - must first be absorbed in proper solution and ratio with unknown tract elements, then be transported by the blood to affected tissue only to be possibly rejected by the target areas.
Perhaps in cancer the EMF induced by the MWO raises the vitality and memory of marginal cells to normal reproduction levels. In the case of other disease, perhaps a cell's given higher energy levels can more readily throw off affliction.


The Multiple Wave Oscillator described here radiates a bandwidth of radio frequency (RF) energy from the audio frequencies up beyond microwave frequencies. By actual measurements with standard field strength meters, this vast bandwidth of frequencies and harmonics can be shown. In fact, a bluish glow of "brush discharge" surrounds the antenna when operating. A fluorescent lamp held anywhere within several feet of the subject glows brilliantly. Within this multiple-wave range of frequencies, every cell in the body can find its ONE resonant frequency and absorb energy at its own natural wave length.
Obviously the Electrostatic energy can not penetrate the body. This is known as the "skin effect". However, the Electromagnetic component of the energy can and does permeate and will induce an EMF in each cell. It is precisely this energy to which Lakhovsky attributes his almost miraculous "cures".

At one stage we had planned constructing a much higher-powered unit but the results with the "portable" are so gratifying that Model Two was shelved. Extensive tests are scheduled with plants and animals, and every effort is being made to remove any element of "suggestion" from results. A physician friend is cooperating with the project by sending a few "problem" patients for test. It is much too soon, however, to make a finished statement concerning the MWO's potential. No cures can be claimed even if obviously demonstrated, since our laws are controlled by medical unions forbidding the use of the word except by MDs. But I have satisfied myself with nearly twenty miracles in these few weeks of tests that the MWO might well be the most promising device to come to light in many years.
