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 day Hitler’s mechanized hordes drove into Prague a book was published in London entitled The Secret Of Life by Georges Lakhovsky, a Russian-born engineer resident of Paris. The book had previously appeared in French, German, Italian and Spanish translations and Lakhovsky’s theories were well known on the Continent long before the English Translation was published.

“The evil designs of the Nazis soon gave rise to depressing repercussions in all spheres of human activity and Lakhovsky’s remarkable work was left virtually unnoticed in this country (England) by the medical profession and the public alike. A few disconcerning critics, however, expressed their views with appreciative understanding. The hospital said “Lakhovsky’s theories are so interesting from the point of view of future developments that it will repay any keen hospital officer to give them his close attention.’ Science Forum said ‘The admirable translation of Lakhovsky’s The Secret of Life will be heartily welcomed in progressive circles. The general theory is one which physicists, biologists and medical men cannot afford to ignore. But these were voices in the wilderness and the field for experimental investigation was left open to a few amateurs devoid of scientific training and lacking the necessary resources.
“The impartial investigation of claims of cure of various diseases by un-orthodox methods demands high qualities of mind and character possessed by very few men indeed. Scientific truth is no respecter of persons or of vested interests, and Lakhovsky’s spectacular results in the treatment of plants and animals and human beings were inevitably bound to antagonize orthodox practitioners and exponents of popular medical cults.
“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.


“Lakhovsky has been criticized by physicists ignorant of biology and by biologists ignorant of physics! These self-appointed censors of knowledge soon found they were confronted with a redoubtable opponent who fully realized the value of experimental evidence. Its publication resulted in causing annoyance to the custodians of infallible doctrines who made up with carping verbiage what they lacked in clarity of vision. But Lakhovsky’s achievements with his oscillating circuits supported by astonishing photographs of regenerated tissues in plants and human beings could not be exploded by mere verbal fireworks, and as evidence accumulated the skepticism of hostile critics relapsed into morose silence.
“The indisputable fact remains that Lakhovsky was the first experimenter to make use of high frequency electro-magnetic waves in the domain of biology. Thus out of the application of radio-electricity to biology his work developed and gradually established the foundations of the new science of Radiobiology. The first international Congress of Radiobiology was held in Venice in 1934. A leading authority on electro-therapy, the late Dr. E.P. Cumberbatch, wrote: ‘Although it has been frequently observed that the short Hert\ian waves could produce heat at a distance from the transmitter the first scientific investigation from a biological point of view was made by Lakhovsky and his colleagues who published a paper in 1924 on the effects of very short waves on cancer in plants….’
“When France was occupied by German troops, Lakhovsky, being a prominent anti-Nazi, decided to leave Paris and made his way to New York where he died in 1942 at the age of 73.
‘In the United States Lakhovsky’s theories were put to the practical test with typical American speed. Noticing that patients treated with Lakhovsky’s Multiple Wave Oscillator showed signs of rejuventating appearance, the possibility of exploiting this side-effect proved irresistible to an enterprising ‘beautician’. A film was made featuring cases after treatment with Lakhovsky’s MWO, which proved to be both interesting and convincing.
“In New York Lakhovsky was approached by several hospitals with a view to testing his apparatus experimentally. The remarkable results obtained… in a large New York City hospital, and also by a prominent Brooklyn urologist are fully set out in the text.
“In this country (England), owing mainly to the inauspicious time at which Lakhovsky’s major work was published, very little interest has been shown on the part of those best qualified to judge its merits. The medical profession, whose conservatism is the most formidable barrier to progress, has been notoriously slack in investigating the new radio-electrical methods of treating disease as originated by Lakhovsky….”
Mark Clement’s observation on the formidable conservatism of the medical profession in 1949 is still true today. Effective electronic diagnosis and treatment of disease is still a closed door here in America as far as the AMA is concerned. Those brave MDs who have tried to keep medical practice abreast of developments in electronic science have been discouraged, if not actually driven out of practice. Dr Abrams is a good example, with his Oscilloclast, developed and proven effective in San Francisco about the time Lakhovsky was developing the MWO in Paris in the 1920’s. Radical innovations in any line of endeavor are usually thought up and proven by rank outsiders. Georges Lakhovsky was no doctor, but an electrical engineer!

Doctors, with their own pharmacies and with massive investments in the drug industry, are not likely to show much interest in radical new ways for treating human ailments, especially if the new way is a treat to profitable practice; and, as long as Americans think they can buy health in a pill or a shot in the fanny, doctors will continue to treat them with poisonous drugs at top prices. This is good business.


But for those of us who would like to keep our bodies as uncontaminated – and as healthy – as possible, Lakhovsky’s theories offer a way out of the clutches of the medical trust. There is little likelihood that the AMA will support research in this area of electronic science for years to come. There is every probability that there will be murderous opposition to any attempt to exploit the MWO on a national scale. This means that you will have to build and test your own equipment, or make friends with some electronic technician – engineer, TV or radio repairman – and prevail upon him or her to build it for you. This is the active kind of borderland research which requires that you get up out of your easy chair and get to work! If you live in an isolated spot, take a mail order course in basic radio construction. If you live near a high school that has an adult education program, sign up for the evening class in radio theory and bench work. I did at Barstow In 1958, so can you. If you want to be a citizen of the New Age you should make some effort to keep up to date, even if the sick industry doesn’t!
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. An important factor in this connection is the nature of the soil. A reinforcement of cosmic rays takes place on soils which are good conductors of electricity such as clay, ferruginous and carboniferous soils.


“To avoid the harmful effects of loss of oscillatory equilibrium it is necessary to ensure the regularization of the cosmic field round the living organism by filtration. Lakhovsky’s own explanation of the problem of filtration is as follows: ‘The terrestrial atmosphere is known to be impregnated by a vast range of electro-magnetic oscillations of all wave lengths and intensities as a result of unceasing electrical discharges (thunder, etc.). Besides that we know that electric motors and other electrical machines create in the atmosphere a field of auxiliary waves. Moreover, during the past 25 years the earth has been flooded with radio-telegraphic, radio-telephonic and other waves. Under such conditions it is easy to understand why any oscillating circuit of any form or dimensions is likely to find in this vast field of waves its own resonance with which it can vibrate harmoniously. It is therefore obvious that to make any oscillating circuit oscillate there is no need to have recourse to a local generator such as the Radio Cellular Oscillator used by Lakhovsky in 1924 when he first treated and cured geraniums inoculated with cancer. The oscillating circuit utilized by Lakhovsky in his second series of experiments – a circuit having no artificial source of excitation – proved equally effective in curing geraniums rendered cancerous by inoculation.”

To get back to Clement’s text: “Through the action of this constant field of radioelectric waves which emantes from the surrounding atmosphere the oscillating circuit is made to resonate like an instrument in tune with certain sounds. Thus the oscillating circuit creates a field which canalizes and filters, so to speak, the cosmic waves necessary for cellular oscillation.


“Furthermore, this filtration is a general phenomenon. It has been discovered, through the investigations of Lakhovsky, that radiations such as those associated with light, ultra-violet rays, X-rays, etc., have the property of making cosmic rays act, as it were, to the advantage or disadvantage of the cells. Now the field created by an oscillating circuit is constant and emits a steady and sustained force. It invariably acts in a favorable manner on the oscillation of the body cells, facilitating by the filtration of cosmic rays, regular cellular division, a fact which explains the immunity imparted to the cells and their consequent capacity of resistance to diseases and microbes.
It is highly significant that about the only rays and ray machines approved for general use by the American Medical Association are the destructive ones of X-rays and atomic radiations for the mis-treatment of cancer.
“Since Lakhovsky’s oscillating circuits were first used for the treatment of canceroius geraniums, an experiment fully described in communications to the French Academy of Science, the same method has been successfully applied in Continental hospitals and nursing homes.”
Photos of the successful treatment of cancerous geranium plants are included in Clement’s book, along with the pictures of the disappearing skin cancers in human beings. So Clement describes the major features of Lakhovsky’s work in this first chapter, the simple, one-coil Oscillating Circuit powered by cosmic rays, and the electric powered Multiple Wave Oscillator. There are photos of the Multiple Wave Oscillator, showing clearly the unique circular atennas. These were made of metal tubing, separated and suspended with silk thread.


“In the light of Lakhovsky’s theories the fight between the living organism and microbes is fundamentally a ‘war of radiations’. If the radiations of the microbe win the cell ceases to oscillate and ill health is the ultimate result. If one on the other hand, radiations of the cell gain the ascendant the microbe is killed and health is preserved.


“Broadly speaking, health is equivalent to oscillatory equilibrium of living cells whereas disease is characterized by oscillatory dis-equilibrium. This general principle has given rise to a vast number of experiments covering the whole field of biology. Plants, animals and human beings have been successfully treated by the application of Lakhovsky’s oscillating circuits and the reader is referred to his major work The Secret of Life for a full discussion of this important subject.
Those of you who have been studying the Kabala with Mrs. Crabb and me must have been struck immediately by the physical soundness of Lakhovsky’s basic theory expressed above. One wonders if this Russian escapee from Communism, and from Naziism, wasn’t indeed a student of the Western Mystery Tradition, perhaps even an Initiate! The Tree of Life is the ground plan of our Tradition. On the Tree we show the descent and the ascent of power, oscillating back and forth from left to right and right to left across the Middle Pillar, or balance point.
Now for the final paragraph of Chapter One. “During recent years observations on the part of several investigators have established the fact that most animals, including insects and birds, emit radiations while they are also sensitive to the influence of external electromagnetic waves. These radiations emitted by all living beings cover an indefinite range (infinite range?) and are characterized by a multitude of different wave lengths. In the immense range of existing radiations we can only perceive the luminous octave (visable light) but we know that whole gamuts of radiations exist beyond the narrow limits of the visible spectrum. The limitations of our senses prevent us from perceiving radiations of living beings and this sensory incapacity also excludes from the field of direct awarness the vast gamut of electromagnetic waves traversing our atmosphere. Yet all these radiations and waves exist and affect all forms of organic life in various ways.”


In Chapter Two Mark Clement gives “Medical Reports on Lakhovsky’s Oscillating Circuits.” We’ll give only one, by Dr. Araujo, Physician at the Prophylactic Institute, Montevideo Uraguay. “In 1929, Dr. Araujo was suffering from a long-standing infection of the larynx which his eminent colleagues had failed to cure. While in Paris he met Lakhovsky who advised him to wear one of his oscillating circuits in the form of a collar. Although feeling rather skeptical about this unorthodox method of treatment Dr. Araujo wore the oscillatin circuit for several months with the result that he fully recovered and has had no relapse since. This personal experience led him to treat his own patients with Lakhovsky’s oscillating circuits. Having treated over 300 patients suffering from a wide variety of diseases Dr. Araujo succeeded in curing or greatly improving cases of rheumatism, asthma, anemia, neutralgia, gastric ulcer, colitis, glandular disturbances, sterlity, genitor-urinary affections, general weakness and even cancer. Dr. Araujo observed that in cases in which Lakhovsky’s oscillating circuits appeared to give no definite results there was invariably a latent infection which required specal treatment such as syphilis, cholecystitus, sinusitis, pyelitis, dental sepsis, etc… A full account of Dr. Araujo’s Report appeared in a monograph entitled ‘Cosmic Rays and Oscillating Circuits’ by Dr. P. Rigaux, Paris, 1932.”


Most of this has been well explained by Bob Beck in his article in the November Journal, though we might quote again in Clement’s own words: “After many experiments Lakhovsky succeeded in constructing an apparatus generating an electrostatic field in which all frequencies from 3 meters to the infra-red region could be produced. Hence in this field every cell could find its own frequency in resonance. Thus a type of oscillator was obtained giving all fundamental wave lengths from 10 cms. To 400 meters, corresponding to frequencies of 750,000 to 3 milliards per second.
“Since 1931 the Multiple Wave Oscillator has been used in most European countries and in America for the treatment of many diseases including cancer. No contraindications for the use of the apparatus nor any harmful effects on patient have ever been reported. This is in striking contrast with short-wave therapy in general, X-rays and radium whose application in the hands of experts has not infrequently been followed by the most serious consequences…”
Then follow several pages of photos of before-and-after cancer cures and medical reports from doctors. This one is typical, from Dr. Nicholas Gentile, Chief Radiologist of the Clinic for Incurables of the Apostolic Ladies of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Rome, published in the medical review Medicina Nuova XXVI. N.5., 1935, Rome: “Effects On The Nervous System. Generally speaking I have observed a marked analgesic action following the application of the Multiple Wave Oscillator in all affections associated with pain, particularly in the classical cases ty0pical of such affections. For example, a patient suffering from cephalagia, resulting form violent cranial trauma, for a duration of 10 years, was subjected to a great variety of treatments, but all in vain. The patient was definitely cured after 2 months’ treatment with the MWO. Improvement was manifest after only 3 applications.”
Dr. Gentile also reported the effects of the MWO on the Central Nervous System, on Chronic Inflammations, on Metabolism, on Disorders of the Cardio-Vascular System, and on miscellaneous cases. He says he adopted the “technique of localized irradiation. Generally speaking, treatment is given every 4 days for a duration of 5-15 minutes per session. This is the technique which has given me the best results after having experimented with many forms of application. For children, old people and debilitated women, a relatively weaker application is indicated. If results are not apparent after 7 or 8 applications, I continue until 15-30 applications are given at the rate of a single treatment once a week. I have never observed any ill-effects from the MWO treatment, whatever the number of applications was in any given case. Moreover, the general condition of patients is always improved, even if only temporarily, so much so that the patients themselves sometimes insist on having further treatments…”
This chapter on the MWO concludes with four pages of reports of notable improvement or cure by American doctors. Chapter Five is concerned with the remarkable results obtained by using the Multiple Wave Oscillator on animals. Chapter Six contains Lakhovsky’s prophecy that some time in the future diagnosis of disease would be obtained by television! This is something which Dr. Ruth Drown’s Radio-Vision and Homo-Vibra Ray instruments have already accomplished.


There were two Multiple Wave Oscillators available. These were generously furnished by Bob Beck and Ed Skilling, and were set up in the shielded séance room. Only short exposures of from 2 to 5 minutes were given, during the lunch and dinner hours on Saturday and Sunday. In that time perhaps 100 people volunteered for tests. Until a follow up inquiry is made, no statistical conclusion can be made, or even begun!
A few individual cases reported to your Director are worthy of note, including my own. By mid-morning on Saturday a spinal injury from my old, hockey-playing days was acting up. Doctors have called it a spasm in the sacro-iliac area. Ed Skilling invited me to sit in the rays from the MWO for a couple of minutes while the séance room was being readied for testing. Within a minute the spasm relaxed completely and the pain was gone. This was not a permanent change, of course, but the analgesic effect was certainly noticeable.
Mrs. Fred Rannenberg, financial secretary of Harmony Grove and a BSR Associate, told me she had had a sharp pain in the area of he left hip for over two weeks at the time of the convention. One 3-minute exposure to the rays of the MWO removed this completely. When I attended the Grove Board meeting a week later she said the pain had still not returned.
One Associate did report a negative reaction to the MWO. She attributed it to arsenic poisoning. She had a severe case of this earlier in the year. When the machine was turned on she felt a severe pain through her right side, as though someone had jabbed a knife into her. It could be that some of the lead poison was still in her system and the lead poison was still in her system and the stirring of the cells in the mid-section produced this reaction. It was endurable, however, and she sat out the exposure without a murmur. The pain persisted that night and she had to put cold compresses on her side to get to sleep. The next morning she felt fine and was eager to take another exposure to the multiple waves. This time there was no negative reaction.
The most startling subject of all was the woman who had been awake all Saturday night with a migraine headache, an old and recurring ailment. By Sunday morning, Nov, 10th, she was sick and nauseated. It was suggested that before taking her to a doctor or hospital she be given a short exposure to MWO rays. Within minutes all pain was gone and she returned to her cottage to lay down and sleep like a baby.


Ed Skilling is the only 1 I know has stayed in the MWO field or rays for longer than 15 minutes. While testing and adjusting his equipment at his microphone factory several weeks ago he deliberately stayed between the antennas for an hour. At the end of that time he was beginning to feel lightheaded and dreamy he thought it a good idea to get out before losing consciousness altogether.
An even more spectacular possibility is the Time-Machine effect in connection with rejuvenation. If, as Bob Beck suggested in his article, the MWO tends to take the body cell back down the time-track to a more youthful, more vital period.


Copies of our November 1963 Journal have gone all over the world. Each days mail rings new orders. We are confident that Lakhovsky’s invention, far ahead of its time in the 1920’s and 30’s, has been given a new lease on life and will be pushed to its ultimate development on every continent. There will be vigorous opposition from the right-wing conservatives and reactionaries. Their resistance will furnish the platform from which electronic “medicine” will eventually sweep the world.
I see the day when a device, similar to the MWO, will be a standard part of every home bathroom or cleansing centre. You will consider it as necessary and as routine to take an electronic showerbath, as to take a water bath. Home from work, tired, dirty and discouraged, you strip, flip on the MWO switch, and while shaving, doing your hair or whatever, re-balance your whole system with a two or three minutes exposure to the pulsing waves from the oscillator as they flood the whole room. For the sale of the house of the future it will be as important for the ad to say “shielded bath with MWO” as it will to say “tile bath with radiant heat.”
Mr Skilling told me he was tired and “dragged out” after processing dozens of volunteer “guinea pigs” late Saturday afternoon. Before shutting down the equipment he sat in the nail-less wooden chair between the antennas and gave himself a three minute shot of pulsed waves. Refreshed and revived he looked forward to a good dinner and the full evening program.
I don’t know of a better Christmas gift we could have given the associates that the idea and the plans for the Lakhovsky MWO, researched and so generaously offered us by Bob Beck in the true borderland Science tradition. Now it is up to you to carry it forward in your own individual way. We welcome your comments, observations and research data as you develop equipment and a testing program.

“I had been fighting a virus for several days and the day after the first exposure I felt a great deal better, but the second day I was right back where I had been. But that was the pattern the virus had been taking. One day id feel fairly normal, the next miserable again. So it is difficult to know if the Lakhovsky machine could be credited with the temporary improvement.”

That’s right, ma’am, some people show little or no reaction to the mytogenic waves put out by the Lakhovsky instrument. The results are unpredictable. Perhaps that’s why the research was pushed no further in the 1930’s by authorities here in the United States. You, like most people, think that health can be bought in a package. Lakhovsky didn’t agree with this erroneous conclusion. His theory was that health is a condition of imbalance caused by your misbehaviour. If you continue to misbehave, any force applied from the outside, whether it be mytogenic waves, manipulation, drugs, medicine or surgery, will only bring temporary relief. Pain is an insistent teacher, urging you to change your mind; but if you cant change your mind, how can you change your body?
“One possible reaction to the exposure I can report is that I took the first one just before going to bed at night. It took me three hours to get to sleep. Several things puzzle me about the machine we have constructed. First of all, although we have experimented with a Tesla Coil of the size your diagram calls for, as well as one almost twice the size and strength, we cannot get a two-inch spark from the antenna or resonator, ½ or ¾ of an inch is the absolute maximum.”
The mention of the two-inch spark was Mr. Beck’s error. ½ to ¾ inch arcing is all this circuitry will produce and that is adequate to affect notable changes in many forms of cell life. More power might produce faster changers, and much harm! Be reasonable, a living cell is so small as to be invisible without a microscope. Only minute amounts of energy are necessary to affect a cell, to stimulate it or to kill it.

But power is not the answer to balanced cell life! Dr. Abrams discovered this with his early electroic experiemtns in San Francisco in the 1920’s. It is the quality and the variety of the pulsed waves that counts! In any event weaker equipment can be compensated by longer exposure, and this may be more beneficial to living matter.

Let me assure you, there is no single cure-all for man’s ills. The clue to better health is in the profound statement of the Savior of our race: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Pain is still the great teacher in the world and will be for a long, long time to come. I don’t know what your physical condition is and it’s none of my business; that’s between you and your doctor. If you have a long history of frustration and thwarted ambition, going bck to childhood and even into past lives, this mass of energy of crystallized thought-forms, is not going to be broken up and dissipated overnight. If you have consciously and willfully flouted Cosmic Laws, or have turned them to your own selfish ends, the consequences of this misbehavior will have to be worked out at this level. The occult scientist calls this Fixed Karma. In this conncection, one of my favourite teachers, Dion Fortune, reminds us: “What cannot be cured must be endured.”
If the Lakhovsky oscillator does have an analgesic affect – as it appears to have had in some cases – it has this advantage over pain relieving drugs’ it does not leave a residue of poison I our already over-loaded liver and kidneys!



“With the mention of two successive exposures in two days I get to what is the most important question in the use of the MWO. No one has explained why exposures are suggested at four-day intervals. Is it harmful or useless to take them more frequently? When one is uncomfortable or in pain, one is anxious to rid oneself of the discomfort as quickly as possible. And to have to wait four more days for additional improvement seems unnecessary if there is no harm in the exposures. I have exposed myself at more frequent intervals and still have observed no reactions?”

The suggested exposure rate of fifteen minutes every four days came from Dr. Gentile’s extensive researchers with Lakhovsky equipment in Rome in the 1930’s. This is a typical professional approach to treatment of disease by doctors. From long experience with drugs and other proven forms of therapy, they know that it takes time for the human organism to adjust itself to radical changes – without harming the organism.
Whether or not this holds true for the operation and effect of the Lakhovsky machine remains to be proven and you’ll have to be your own guinea pig. It’s your machine; it’s your body; it’s your life. You can take an exposure every hour on the hour if you like; stay in all day. Who’s going to stop you? This is borderland research and you are a borderland scientist, looking for new knowledge which may be of benefit to yourself and the human race, judging from the last lines of your letter.
“I am so excited and hopeful of the efficacy of this MWO machine that I do not want to leave any avenue unexplored that may possibly help in understanding its use and making it freely available to anybody I can possibly help. May I take this opportunity to tell you how tremendously enthusiastic and interested I am in BSRA, not only what you are trying to do but what you are accomplishing, too. From what you imply of the financial situation, it seems to be largely a labor of love and service on your part, for which you deserve great praise and the heartfelt thanks of every BSRA member and others whose lives they touch. Please accept this very, very small donation of the enclosed check, as a symbol of my appreciation.”
The donation is most welcome and will be put toward the expenses of carrying on this work, also the words of appreciation. The lady was also most curious about the Lakhovsky circuits, those single bands of wire which are placed around the waist, or knees, or ankles, wrist or neck, and seem to have a subtle but very real affect on the wearers. We have some information on the Lakhovsky Circuits or Belts form Associate A.E. Powell, a retired lieutenant colonel of the British Indian Army:


“The recent article in the BSRA Journal pertaining to the Lakhovsky Oscillator is of special interest to me. First, I am an engineer, Physician and Surgeon, and a Scientific Consultant for the U.S. Government. (Technical Intelligence). I am not in any manner snooping for the government. This is completely personal. We built several oscillators in 1944. These were used in my sanatorium in Dallas where we had some startling results. As we did not have the proper facilities to research the instruments adequately, we became more and more conservative. Many patients would show reactions, resembling the old fashioned flu, after a few days following exposure to the oscillator. I realized we were using too much power, so cut the level several times with good results; but we did not completely eliminate the side affects. In 1946 I was sent to Germany for the Government to explore Electro-biology and Bio-physics in its application to elctro-medical equipment. I felt it wise to destroy the machines so injudicious use would not be indulged. The possibilities have intrigued me ever since. It looks as though you have solved most if not all of the problems involved. Hence my renewed interest. The excess power upset the enzyme complex of the body, or as some felt, distorted the double electric layers of charge carried on the cells, hence allowing for the penetration of virii directly into the cells (virli operate within the cells – bacteria operate between the cells). Cells as well as organs function in a force field so mild oscillating currents not only work through resonance but seem to regenerate these force fields. Here is where application to cancer can be optimistically explored.”
Speak for your own state, Doc! Here in California the medical association has decreed that only four forms of treatment for cancer are legal; drugs, surgery, burning rays and death.
“Proof of energy flow from the fingers and thumb is here and must be recognized. We have demonstrated it by its effect on Yeast cells, viewed under the microscope (Girwich research). Whether it comes from the conscious rather than the subconscious rather than the subconscious mind is harder to prove, but I am impelled to believe it does. This may interest you. Years ago we experimented with crystallization. Precipitated water vapor to snowflakes in a chamber with electrodes planted in two sides. When we threw a current into the chamber at a given frequency the flakes were all the same. Changing the wave length changed the crystallization pattern. Each frequency had its own pattern. Here is the explanation of energy absorption by the chemical used, and the control of the crystalline patterns by the nature of the energy flowing.”
If I understand the theory correctly, according the natural view of colds, flu, virus, infections, etc., these are attempts by the human organism to throw off mucous, to eliminate intolerable accumulations of poison from the system. Exposure to the field created by the MWO tends to raise the general tone of the whole system by stimulation. The raised vibrations release an unusual amount of mucous and other junk into the elimination channels, and until this is eliminated one would have a cold or flu and the usual aches and pains which generally go with such a condition.
Another doctor stopped by here not long ago to tell of his sad experience in trying to use spark-gap electronic equipment in his medical practice “for those suffering patients not helped by drugs.” This powerful, high-frequency machine produced a two inch spark! Every time he turned It on, everyone in town seemed to know it and the phone would ring. Even a Faraday cage didn’t shield the output of this monster. Finally he was called before the county medical board to explain what he was doing. The board presented a staggering combination of fatuous conceit and stubborn ignorance. “They didn’t want to know anything about the affects of radio waves on the body and didn’t care!”


By Georges Lakhovsky from Radio News February 1925

“The new application of short wavelength oscillations described in the following article” wrote the Editor or Radio News, “is one of the most important ever found, and we are pleased to present to our readers this article by Mr. Georges Lakhovsky, the well known French scientist. The experiments described were carried out in collaboration with several doctors and scientists of high standing and it seems from results obtained, that the very high frequency treatments will play an important role in the future. We shall publish in a later issue another article on this new system together with the effects of ultra radio frequencies in the treatment of diseases in human beings.”
Since November 1923 I have published in various technical and radio publications, several papers in which I explained my theory that the instinct or special feeling, which permits birds to direct themselves in space, is only the results of the emission and reception of rays by living beings. While developing this theory, I explained how thoroughly I was convinced that science will discover, some day, not only the nature of microbes by the radiation which they produce, but also a method of killing disease bacilli within the human body by means of the proper radiations.
The researchers I have made by means of special apparatus have shown such results, that I believe my theory is 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 ochrone 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 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 (1925). 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 outer space. Some accurate measurements have proved 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, and sickness is started. If the cell cannot repel the stronger vibrations and if the amplitude of its own vibration decreases, the microbe gains and its vibrations in decreasing and stopping those of the cells, bring 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. Suck 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. The rescuer does not dare to fire his gun; fearing to harm his friend mixed up with the aggressors in the meelee. Similarly, microbes and healthy cells are 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 means of destroying the bacillae, the cell was attacked too. The experience gained in cancer and tuberculosis treated with radium, X-ray, or ultra-violet rays, shows how difficult is the work of the investigators.


The remedy in my opnion 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, and apparatus which I have called Radio-Cellular-Oscillator, with the firm belief that the cells vibrating at extremely short wave-lenghs 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 which I propose to use, is harmless, unlike those of X-rays and radium. Their application, therefore, does not present any danger to 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 a and a microbe, are in contact, that the rays produced by the Radio-Cellular-Oscillator have any direct effect upon cellar 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 grew again on a sick limb.
“We propose to describe in this paper, the action of electromagnetic waves of very high frequency obtained by means of the Radio-Cellular-Oscillator of Georges Lakhovsky. This apparatus produces wavelengths of the order of two meters and less, corresponding to 150 million cycles per second. A first plant was submitted to the effect of 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 tumor continued to grow rapidly in the same way 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.
“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. Sixteen days after the first exposure the tumors, which were rather large as shown in one of the photographs, began to shrink and dry up and were easily detached from the limb exactly as in the first case. Again in this case, the healthy parts of the plant were not affected in the least. A third plant exposed to the radiations for nine hours, that is, three treatments of three hours each, was cured in the same manner as the two others. Sixteen plants also inoculated with cancer, were left without treatment. They have tumors in full activity, several of which are very large. These experiments show conclusively that plants inoculated with cancer can be treated and cured by means of the ultra radio frequency vibrations, whereas surgical treatment fails.
“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 horrible sickness, cancer, and whose sympathy and help I would greatly appreciate.
“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 wave length of two meters, but with longer and shorter wave-lengths. The main thing is to produce the greatest number of harmonics possible.”

This February 1925 article from Radio News magazine shows how long some of Lakhovsky’s theories have been known in America. This article was furnished to BSRA by an Associate who had me the Russian French scientist in New York. He claims also to have visited several times the New York hospital which set up a research program on the Multi-Wave-Oscillator and saw the Lakhovsky-type equipment. No information on the machine or its effects could be elicited from the hospital authorities and in the early 1950’s the shielded room was dismantled and equipment destroyed.
We feel that Lakhovsky’s theories and early researches should be followed up. It should be publicly proven that high-frequency waves, in the proper concentrations, do affect living organisms in a beneficial way, or that Lakhovsky be declared an idle dreamer. Since research of this kind falls within the purposes of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, Inc., members are encouraged to buld their own equipment and, in a suitably shielded or isolated environment, carry on their own research program. If you cannot obtain the necessary materials, BSRF may be able to put you in touch with another borderlander who can be of help. Until the medical authorities come forth with official approval of this radical approach to the state of imbalance or un-health attributed to disease, no one but a fool would go into commercial production of this king of equipment in America today. It is now said to take a minimum of $300,000 in research money and three years of testing to develop medically acceptable data.


In a letter dated Aug. 29, 1967, Dr. Jamison enclosed this news clip from the Modesto Bee: “Turlock – Veterinarian Stanton L. Jamison yesterday was fined $249 in Turlock Judicial District Court after being convicted of three charges stemming from his use of an electronic machine to treat human patients for cancer. A jury of nine women and three men returned a verdict of guilty on one count of practicing medicine without a license and two counts of advertising a device represented to have effect on cancer, stomach ulcers or bone diseases. The decision followed a two day trial in which Jamison defended himself…..
“They (Jamison and his assistant, Martha Ann Davis) were arrested last December following a lengthy investigation by Turlock police officers and agents of the State Bureau of Food and Drug Inspection. The investigation began when Police Chief John Viagengo requested assistance from the bureau after learning ‘the cancer-curing machine’ was being operated here.
“During the investigation, Food and Drug agents Willis Worley and Harvey Lee arranged several meetings with Jamison on the pretense they were interested in purchasing machines similar to his. Jamison reportedly organized a church as a front for his operation. The facility, located at 200 West Main St., was known as the Life Aquarium Center. Worley and Lee became bishops of the church as did deputy District Attorney Frank Damrell, Jr., who prosecuted the case. At the time of the investigation, Damrell was employed in the State Attorney General’s office.
“Worley said Jamison’s intention was to open other treatment centers throughout the state, using his bishops to set up facilities under protection of the church. “This was the most fantastic investigation I’ve ever been involved in,’ said the agent this morning.
(Yes, it is fantastic to think anyone would want to give or donate healing services from when there are billions to be made on the four kinds of cancer treatment authorized by the California Medical Association: Drugs, Surgery, Radiation and Death. RHC.)
“Worley points out the manufacturer of Jamison’s machine were convicted of grand theft two weeks ago in Los Angeles after selling a similar machine to a Food and Drug agent under false pretenses. (This was probably Ralph Bergstresser, Burbank, Calif., who was manufacturing and selling the Bob Beck MWO for $250.)
“After Jamison’s conviction yesterday, Damrell called for imposition of a prison term for the veterinarian. If he had received the maximum penalty, he could have been sentenced to 18 months in jail and fined $1,500.
“We felt very strongly on this,” said Worley, “because Jamison could easily become a menace to many innocent victims throughout the state.”


“An Associate writes’ A very good psychic in Florida gave the following, in a sitting devoted to the MWO. It is not anywhere near developed to its potential. It has unlimited amplifications to be made. The use of the MWO can change the auric field, thus spiritually it can change the individual. This is done with the work of the seven rays of life. The MWO should be used in conjunction with the Radionics instrument.
