Waves That Heal
By Mark Clement edited with commentary by Riley
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.
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![radio-transmitting] 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!
|One scientist explains it this way: A normal
cell has an electrical potential of vibrating 70 mill
volts per second (mV), an aged cell has 50 mV, the cancer
or ill cell has 15 mV. When the cell is in electrical
difficulty, the mV and sodium-potassium balances are
out. The high potential brings the cells to an equal
level, basically resetting them to their normal state.
This allows healing to occur at a higher pace without
stressing the cell.
Over the past 50 years people all over the world
have experimented with this device on all kinds of
diseases where the healing was slow due to the lack
of energy available in the cells. Many times the body
is just too tired to activate it's own healing programs.
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
disequilibrium due to either a deficiency or an excess of cellular
The Russian Lakhovsky
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!
|Our bodies are composed of cells that resonate at the
same general speed. The rate that a person's cells resonate
is determined by that persons genetic code
When the cells are resonated, all the healthy cells develop a equal
charge, Any cell that is damaged or in distress will resonate at
a different speed. Thus producing a different charge making it easier
for the body to recognize the cells that have the lower energy charge
(cells in distress) so it can then correct it.
When a cell is in difficulty or damaged, the mV
(vibrations per second) level as well as the chemical
balance of sodium-potassium are out of balance.
The high energy resonance produced by the activity of the MWO basically
revitalizes the charge of the cells to their normal state that
is determined by the person's own genetic code. Then as a result
the energized cells in the body become capable of performing their
correct function and are able to start correcting the problems
in the body at a faster pace.
Hence my body really cured itself, it was not the
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.

vibration to an optimal state.
|Rife machines and Multiwave oscillators are claimed to
complement each other based on the principle that life forms
absorb energy. A multiwave Oscillator uses this principle
to strengthen cells within the body to resist disease while
a Rife machine uses this principle to destroy microorganisms
with an overdose of frequency energy.
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!
THEORY OF OPERATION
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 1930s, can still be found in "modern" doctor's
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.
A WAVE FOR EVERY BODY CELL
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 many miracles in these last few years of
tests that the MWO might well be the most promising device to
come to light in many years.
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
MWO in Operation
The MWO works by producing a broad range of high frequency pulsed
signals that radiate energy into the patient via two round resonators:
one resonator acting as a transmitter and the other as a receiver.
The resonator is constructed from a series of open ended circular
copper tubes terminated with ball shaped knobs. The copper tube
rings nest one inside the other, but none touch each other. The
ring assembly is held in place with silk thread in Lakhovsky's
original design. Each ring has its open ended termination placed
180 degrees opposite from its adjacent ring. The machine generates
a very wide spectrum of high frequencies coupled with static
high voltage charges applied to the resonators using spark gaps..
These high voltages cause a corona discharge around the perimeter
of the outside resonator ring that Nikola Tesla referred to as
an "electric brush", but Lakhovsky used the French
word, "effluvia" or "effluve". The patient
sat on a wooden stool in between the two resonators and was exposed
to these energies for about 15 minutes. These amplified, artificially
produced multiple frequency waves sped up the recovery process
by stimulating the resonance of healthy cells in the patient
and in doing so, increased the immune response to the disease
organisms. Lakhovsky early experiments with radio frequency generators
used a device he called the Radio Cellular Oscillator, but later
switched to an older 19th century design static generator called
a Rhumkorff Coil which was able to sufficiently excite the resonator
coils while avoiding the potential for thermal damage to the
patient, which greatly concerned Lakhovsky. The MWO produced
fundamental waves from 750,000 cycles per second up to 3 billion
cycles per second with the harmonics of these fundamental frequencies
extending the covered range much higher yet.
|Cells of disease-causing organisms in a sick person produce
different frequencies than those of normal, healthy cells.
For people or plants suffering from disease Lakhovsky found
that if he could increase the amplitude, but not the frequency,
of the oscillations of healthy cells, this increase would
damp the oscillations produced by the disease-causing cells
thus kill the disease-causing cells trying to set up house-keeping
in the body. By increasing the amplitude of the natural frequenciesof
disease-causing cells, their oscillations would gain strength
and cause the person or plant to become weaker and more ill.
Lakhovsky saw disease as
In 1928, Professor Sordello Attilj, Director of the Radiological
Service at the San Spirito Hospital in Sassia, Rome, Italy, reported
to the Congress of Radiologists in Florence four cases, two sarcomas,
one circulation problem in the hands and feet, and one severe
back pain that made walking difficult. All four were quickly
remedied with the Lakhovsky oscillating circuit.
The same year, Dr. Marcus in Paris reported that one of his
patients, an insomniac, was given a Lakhovsky oscillation circuit
and had slept soundly for the first time in a very long time.
When the patient’s wife asked to try the device, she slept
well but the patient relapsed into insomnia. When he retrieved
the collar, he once again slept well.
Also in 1928, Dr. F. Barinque reported that after wearing a
Lakhovsky device, a mastectomy patient whose progress was unsatisfactory,
quickly improved and healed.
Dr. Barthe de Sandfort of Cannes reported he no longer suffered
from arteritis obliterans, but what impressed him most was that
nocturnal cramps no longer tortured him. So he tried the device
on a relative who suffered from gastric problems. She wore it
for one month and was relieved of pain.
Dr. C. Perineau of Paris reported that a patient with phlebitis
of the legs and varicose ulcers improved after several months
of wearing the Lakhovsky oscillating circuit. He also regained
his appetite and sleep. When the device broke after a few months
the disease recurred. A month later he got a new device and within
a month the phlebitis disappeared. Lumbago in another of Dr.
Perineau’s patients was relieved by a Lakhovsky oscillating
Sister Marie de L’Annonciation, a Franciscan nun and dispensary
nurse at St. Joseph’s Orphanage, Deauville, France reported
that “the greater number of my patients experience an unusual
feeling of well-being as the result of wearing Lakhovsky’s
oscillating circuit. One woman, aged 76, who for years had suffered
from rheumatic pains, necessitating frequent injections, has
had no further need of my care since she egan wearing a Lakhovsky’s
oscillating circuit a month ago She tells me that she feels 20
Sister Marie then used the device on herself and her other patients.
Madame T. had suffered from pains of the back and varicose veins
for thirty years which made housekeeping painful. “Since
wearing a Lakhovsky oscillating circuit all her symptoms have
vanished and she looks much younger.”
Madame L. “suffered from rheumatism since the age of 40.
For years she had difficulty in walking…” She put
on a Lakhovsky oscillating device and has not taken it off since.
All other forms of treatment have been abandoned.” “She
can now go for short walks and sleeps well at night. She says
that she feels 20 years younger.”
Monsieur PL age 41 suffered from gouty rheumatism for some years
until he tried a Lakhovsky device and his condition is steadily
improving. Madame L recovering from a uterine hemorrhage and
subsequently suffered pelvic pains, poor circulation, edema,
fainting, lassitude, and sleeplessness. Wearing the device she
improved rapidly and all her symptoms disappeared. Miss S. experienced
dull pains following an appendectomy. These symptoms disappeared
after a few days with the collar device. Madame H. had phlebitis.
After only a few days wearing a Lakhovsky oscillating circuit,
her leg was normal. When the device broke, the leg swelled again
until the device was fixed.
Dr. Raul Araujo, a physician at the Prophylactic Institute in
Montevideo, Uruguay was suffering from a longstanding infection
of the larynx which medical doctors had not been able to cure.
While in Paris in 1929, Dr. Araujo met Lakhovsky who advised
him to try wearing a copper collar to set up a frequency of oscillation
to resonate with his laryngeal tissues. He wore this collar for
several months after which the infection disappeared and never
recurred. Dr. Araujo determined to try this amazing, simple technology
with his own patients. After treating more than 300 patients,
he reported successfully mitigating and curing cases of rheumatism,
asthma, anemia, neuralgia, gastric ulcer, colitis, glandular
disturbances, sterility, genito-urinary afflictions, general
weakness and even cancer. He found that circulation improved,
blood count be came normal in a short time, sleep was improved
and capacity for work increased. Eyes became brighter: face and
lips acquired a healthy color. Falling out and graying of the
hair was stopped. Cancer patients life was lengthened with a
much improved general condition. Neurasthenia, insomnia, and
incoherence disappeared and patients regained their mental equilibrium.
He found that in cases in which the Lakhovsky oscillating circuit
seemed to give no results invariably involved latent infection
which required special treatment such as syphilis, cholecystitis,
sinusitis, pyelitis, and dental sepsis.
In 1931 Dr. P. Rigaux published Dr. Araujo’s findings
in a monograph entitled, “Cosmic Rays and Oscillating Circuits”
The 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 moved to New York, escaping the
Nazi occupation of France.
Dr. N. Vaccaro reported that a surgical patient was not recovering
well until he fitted her with a Lakhovsky collar. A few months
later she returned to get another collar, the first having broken. “She
stated that her weakness, dyspepsia, and insomnia had vanished
about a week after putting on the collar.” After less than
9 months she had recovered fully and was going back to work. “She
now never leaves her ‘talisman’, as she calls her
collar, and has a reserve supply of three other collars in case
of an accident
Dr. E.Cincin of Seine-et-Oise reported that, following surgery
for sarcoma of the ovary, a patient complained of edema, abdominal
pains and general fatigue. After wearing the Lakhovsky’s
oscillating circuit constantly her symptoms disappeared and her
health has never been better.
In 1931, Lakhovsky introduced the Multiple Wave Oscillator at
the Hospital St. Louis, Paris and Hospital Clinic at Goeteborg,
Sweden, and later at the Institut de Physique Biologique in Paris.
Among the medical conditions remediated are various cancers,
exophthalmic goiter, enlarged prostate, gastrointestinal ulcer
and other afflictions. Dr. Henry of Brussels and Professor de
Cigna of Genoa successfully treated patients with the Multi-Wave
Dr Nicholas Gentile of Rome published an extract from the medical
review, Medicina Nuova in 1935 in which he described successful
treatment with the Multi-Wave Oscillator for cephalalgia from
violent trauma in 3 sessions, encephalitis in 3 months, alcoholic
paraplegia after 8 sessions, nocturnal enuresis after “a
few” sessions, ovaritis and salpingitis after 2 months
of sessions, enlarged prostate after 4 sessions, two cases of
rapidly progressive baldness after 8 sessions. Dr. Gentile also
successfully treated patients for arthritis, menstrual disorders,
perivisceritis, diminution of glycemia and glycosuria in diabetic
patients, hepatic colic, renal colic, chronic atonic or spastic
constipation, asthma (but not cardiac asthma), reducing systolic
blood pressure while increasing diastolic blood pressure, and
chronic phlebitis (although not for acute phlebitis).
In 1940, Dr. Alexander Francis at Frinton-on-Sea reported,
“I have discovered that the Multi-Wave Oscillator improves
hearing, and for the last 3 months the chief part of my work
with the apparatus has been in deaf cases.”
I have been doing ear work for over 40 years and am very pleased
to find at last something which is a real help in chronic deafness.
I have obtained many striking results.
My best results are in nerve cases. A patient of mine who fell
on his back seven years ago and has been completely paralyzed
from the waist ever since is distinctly better. He had depended
entirely on a catheter but for the past few months h3e has been
able to pass water naturally. Sensation is returning to his legs
and he feels very much better generally.
Mark Clement, in The Waves that Heal, describes how Lakhovsky
was approached by many people and organizations hoping to capitalize
on his Multi-wave Oscillator therapy. Lakhovsky was also approached
by several hospitals in New York hoping to test his apparatus..
Remarkable results were obtained from a seven-week clinical trial
at a major New York City hospital and by a prominent Brooklyn
urologist in the summer of 1941. Later editions of The Secret
of Life detailed many of these cases.
What seemed to be a promising development in the use of the
Multi-Wave Oscillator 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 was quickly shelved. Hidden hands were obliterating
the memory of Lakhovsky's Multi-Wave Oscillator in America.
