The Political Climate of 1936
Sometime in early 1936 William Donner, the President of the International Cancer Research Foundation, visited Rife and Johnson. He was impressed by what he saw and wanted his colleagues in Philadelphia to witness a demonstration. Rife agreed to travel east in the spring and show them how to filter a BX cancer virus. Also in early 1936, Johnson and Henry Timken, Rife''s original sponsor, completed agreements to build the wonderful laboratory Rife had so long envisioned. The ground was broken in April and Rife moved in during the latter part of July. Rife and Philip Hoyland began revising the Royal Rife Machine in the early months of 1936, eliminating parts which had been made obsolete by recent advances in electronics. During that summer they produced an entirely new method of generating the desired frequencies. Among the new test appliances they created was a nine inch Cathode-Ray oscillograph of high sensitivity, built for the purpose of photographing the different frequencies on motion picture film. This enabled them to study and classify the numerous waves in an entirely new way. In April Rife traveled to San Francisco to help Dr. Walker get his test procedures refined. On May 1, he left for Chicago where he attended an electronics convention. From there he traveled to Louisville where an eye doctor examined him and restricted his daily use of the microscope to two hours. On May 9, 1936, he arrived in Philadelphia for the fateful meeting with the International Cancer Research Foundation.
What followed belongs in the category of tragic fiascos. In February of the next year, Johnson wrote to Dr. Edward Archibald, Canada''s most renowned cancer specialist and an associate of Dr. Gruner who had collaborated with Rife in the Spring of 1935. Johnson described to Dr. Archibald what Rife encountered in Philadelphia during his May 1936 demonstration: "Rife reported that they provided him with six or seven tumors without any pathological report .whatsoever on any of them. He examined them microscopically and found that all but three had been heavily rayed with X-ray or had been treated with radium. The three which had not been treated, he planted and irradiated in the argon tube in accordance with our technique. In each case, he obtained the characteristic BX. They insisted upon keeping some of the material so obtained and said they were going to try to produce cancers in animals of their own. We have never been notified whether or not they did so.
The atmosphere in which Mr. Rife found himself was one of extreme skepticism. They were urged not to try to reproduce these experiments without first learning our techniques by actual experience, but were determined to go ahead, and if they did so, they probably failed." On May 22, 1936, William Donner wrote to Johnson and told him no grant would be forthcoming for at least 100 days or so, thereby breaking the promise he had given Johnson and Rife at the beginning of the year. Johnson's reply on May 27 is an anguished plea for the Foundation to finance Dr. Gruner for a period of time at Rife's side in San Diego instead of paying an inexperienced clinician in Philadelphia to try replicating Rife's procedures. The plea fell on deaf ears, but is worth quoting at some length. It exemplifies how one man's clear thinking (in this case Johnson's) may be more important in accomplishing a research goal than all the prestige, careful procedures and credentialed expertise that an important foundation can organize.
Johnson wrote: "Your letter came as a great disappointment to me. I had thought from what you told me in the winter, that we might hope for an immediate grant if Mr. Rife was able to show to your man the BX taken from human carcinoma and the method by which the organism was grown. "I understood you to say that you felt so strongly about it that if Mr. Rife were successful, you yourself would be willing to give Dr. Gruner's services for a year if your Board, which did not believe in the bacterial origin of cancer, was unwilling to make the grant.
"You secured Dr. Dodge who, I agree, is one of the finest mycologists in America. He worked every minute, step by step, with Mr. Rife. Notes were taken of every detail of each day's work, and these notes were signed daily by both Dr. Dodge and Mr. Rife. This shows how entirely frank Mr. Rife was in showing every minute step of the process to Dr. Dodge. "As this same organism has been repeatedly found by us and also by Dr. Arthur I. Kendall in Chicago, and now in Philadelphia, you and your board can surely assume that if not the sole cause of cancer, it is at least constantly present in that disease. So far as we know, no other research group has gone so far. "A delay until October is almost tragic at this stage of the work. Dr. Gruner has had invitations to go elsewhere, but has waited to see if we could secure the grant to carry on the work, as he believes we are further along than any other research group. "In delaying until October, are you not demanding from us more than from a research organization?"
"We cannot prove these points without further research and we have always understood that the organizations to which you have already given grants are merely research organizations. You say that you are selecting a man in Philadelphia to carry on the inoculating and the growing of the organisms from human cancer during Dr. Dodge's absence. Perhaps you do not realize that it is impossible to handle filter-passing forms of bacteria without a-microscope which shows them. Only by this means can the work be properly checked from day to day. As you undoubtedly must pay the man whom you select in Philadelphia to do this work, would you not be willing to employ Dr. Gruner yourself to work out here with Mr. Rife and his microscope? He would have every facility and every probability of success. May I remind you that over three years ago, Dr. Arthur I. Kendall of Northwestern Medical School published his epochal work on filter-passing organisms, and that since that time, many, many scientists have tried in vain to repeat his experiments. Such men as Park of New York, and Zinsser of Harvard, having failed in their attempts, have vociferously denied the existence of these filter-passing organisms. You yourself know how mistaken that is."
"We have found no way to grow these organisms except in the Kendall medium, and even when Kendall medium has been supplied to these other scientists, they have not been able to sterilize the medium without mining it. "It would seem to me, in view of these facts and the peculiar situation in which this matter seems to be involved, that it would be wise to select someone in whom you have every confidence and send him to the Rife Laboratory to work this problem out. Do you not feel that it should be someone who has actually grown filter-passing organisms and can see and recognize them? If you are unwilling to give us Dr. Gruner, will you not send a man whom you have selected here to us? I cannot believe that any man lacking experience in handling filter-passing organisms and without a Rife microscope can succeed in many times the 100 days which you cite as a minimum."
"You and we are seeking to conquer this horrible human curse. I realize that the general acceptance of our views will completely revolutionize present concepts concerning the causes of many diseases besides cancer. Therefore, the greatest care must be taken in each step if we are to avoid at least some of the tremendous antagonisms which always greet new ideas. For that reason, we are willing to go to extremes in checking our findings and having them checked, but we do not want to be checked by inexperienced men in a matter involving so highly technical and so specialized a knowledge. Hoping you will bear with me and will consider patiently each point which this letter has tried to bring before you, I am Very seriously yours, Milbank Johnson"
On June 2, 1936, William Donner turned down Milbank Johnson's plea. The International Cancer Research Institute would do their own tests. At the end of December, Mildred Schram wrote to Rife, asking for his advice as they completed their experiments. In October, Donner wrote to Rife. Rife refused to answer them. In November, Donner telegraphed Johnson. Then wrote him again. But Rife had wasted enough time with them. He was curing cancer while the foundation broke their agreements, insisted on procedures with inexperienced people which were doomed from the outset, and ignored the larger goal which Rife was achieving-the cure of cancer in human beings. Sometime in the spring of 1936, Johnson closed his clinic at the Santa Fe Hospital. The results had been impressive, but he wanted to pause because of the improvements being made in the Royal Rife Machine and then open the third clinic in the fall of 1936.
On April 28, 1936, Dr. Harry Goodman, an eye specialist, wrote to Johnson describing the effect of the Royal Rife Machine on Mrs. Julia M. Gowdy . She had been examined previously on March 23. A little more than a month later, her vision had improved 29% in one eye and 10% in the other. "It had been difficult for her to read the telephone book but now she gets the numbers rather quickly," Goodman reported. In December, Dr. James Couche of San Diego, who had witnessed the first cancer clinic at the Scripps Ranch in 1934, began conducting a clinic with the help of Jack Free, Rife's assistant. They treated cancer and senile cataracts. While the records are incomplete, the first three were cancer patients and according to Couche's notes, all completely recovered. Also in December, Dr. Milbank Johnson opened his third clinic in the Pasadena Home for the Aged. The clinic lasted until May 1937. Johnson's description of his success and the incredible medical events he was witnessing were preserved in copies of letters he sent to Dr. Gruner in Canada and to Dr. Meyer in San Francisco just before the year ended.
To Gruner, Johnson wrote, "The clinic is held three mornings a week, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Yesterday I had eighteen patients. Among them were two cases of pulmonary tuberculosis, three cases of carcinoma, two cases of chronic varicose ulcers of the leg, and sundry other cases of more or less definite infection origin. . . . I certainly wish you were here to work with me because I am afraid that even you, who know what we are trying to do, will not believe some of the yarns that I would have to tell you as to what is occurring in that clinic without actually seeing them yourself."
To Dr. Meyer, Johnson reported: "At times the results of the Royal Rife Machine are absolutely astounding, causing an instantaneous sterilization of the wounds, whether interior or exterior." The Special Medical Research Committee was still in charge however and they were keeping a tight clamp on any announcement until the procedures were certain. In April 1936, prior to Rife's Philadelphia visit, Johnson had specifically instructed Donner that everything the foundation witnessed was to be held in strict confidence. Johnson insisted that "there should be no publication nor any kind of publicity attending this demonstration without the consent of the Special Medical Research Committee of the University of Southern California. We are doing this to prevent any premature publication and the raising of false hopes before things have been thoroughly proven."
In early December, Johnson wrote to Meyers asking when he could be in Los Angeles in order that Johnson could schedule a meeting of the Committee. There was much to report. And then, ten days before Christmas, Johnson and Rife got a Christmas present from San Francisco. Dr. E. L. Walker, Meyer's coworker at the Hooper Foundation, had (on his own, independent of Rife) isolated in June 1936 the fungus form of cancer - crytomyces pleomorphia. In December, he announced he had isolated from a cancer breast the virus form - "motile colored bodies under the Rife microscope, presumably your BX."

I've been using the Rife Digital Professional V2, I bought through you for 7 1/2 weeks now. I am using it on my dog Carlos who has a Malignant Tumor the size of a golf ball growing on the outside of his nose. The first few weeks we saw no effect, then after about a month we noticed the tumor reduced about 50% in size. The ball shaped tumor was curving in to become concave. This was a great sign of progress. Carlos is often exhausted from the Cancer or the Rife healing treatment. His lymph node under his neck are hard and swollen. About a few weeks ago we gave him a few days off the machine to let his body recover. His body did recharge and the lymph nodes did get smaller. I will buy the Mat now for the Bed Lining, and hook this up for the overnight treatments.
I'm the one who worked with Dr. Loftin in Salt Lake nearly 20 years ago and operated his Rife machines on his patients in exchange for treatment on my daughter who was born with almost no immune system...after were were told take her home and enjoy her for what ever time she has left...so, we ordered the Rife Digital Professional and I have used it to treat severe T-2,3,4,5 and 6 spondylitis....additional damage from polio at age of nine....so much swelling and pain and even felt the pressure up into my head..I was most days unable to function. I started the Rife Digital Professional treatments and in less than 3 months I'm walking up and down 100 ft high hill to feed the animals on our mountain 31 acre farm, chopping and spitting fire wood..teaching 4 hrs per day home school to Grandchild and able to sit at computer for hours and feel no pain... none... not being a medical person I don't know if the bone it's self is being repaired or just the swelling and inflammation are under control...I'm 66... and feel a bunch like 50....
Dr. Williams, my family and I deeply thank God for you and your apparent genuine concern for those of us who were diagnosed with cancer. My mother was recently treated for gastric cancer and the chemotherapy seems to be causing her more pain and suffering than the cancer itself. When I researched alternative treatments, I found a Rife Treatment Clinic and we went to New York for treatments. We wanted to purchase the Rife Professional machine so that treatment for her and our loving pet (dog) who has cancer, could be done in the comfort of our home, but everywhere we looked to purchase the machine, the cost was too much out of our financial ability (thousands of dollars). It wasn't until I saw your site and the sale that I JUMPED for joy and told my family I had found a Rife machine and other very valuable cancer treatment information we could afford and could use. Dr. Peter Williams, you and your company are our angels. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for not being greedy and for being truly concerned about helping people heal. Even if your price goes up after the sale, at least the sale allowed those of us with little to no money purchase this very valuable piece of healing equipment. I wish you and your company, your family, and friends well; and, again please know you are our Angel! Bernard
I received the Rife Digital Professional V2 machine thank you, the larger menu screen is so much easier to use now. I found COPD on the menu immediately. I mean I just basically plugged it in, found my frequency in under 30 seconds and started Pulse Sweep overnight. I have already noticed my lungs have cleared and the infection is gone after 3 weeks of using the overnight 8 hour treatment time while sleeping. I ordered one for my wife for the treatment of the tumor under her armpit. I just couldn't lend her my machine, my treatments are full time. Thanks
I have the new series Rife Digital Professional V2. Very useful. I have had great success with the Bacterial Infections and Mycoses setting for infections. And the Parasite, General and Comprehensive frequencies. I have seen excellent results over the 3 week period of using the machine with overnight treatments. The built in programs are great. My father borrowed my machine, So I need to buy another one now. Thank You Vikki Young
Many thanks for the Rife Digital Machine, bought as the second Machine with Yury Erman''s, who you have advised further regarding treating his Adult Onset Diabetes. The post-sales Support is really appreciated. I have just had a bad re-occurrence of Asthma not experienced since childhood. I was diagnosed 35 years ago as being allergic to dust and feathers. I had been sanding the wings of a sailplane for refurbishment, and have inhaled polyester gel coat particles. After just two full cycle treatments for asthma, I am breathing normally again! I am continuing further with the sessions to make sure the Asthma cause (probably a virus to which I am sensitive) has been killed.
Learning about the Rife technology, I know that it is not really the result of a miracle – it is simply the application of a scientifically sound technology which was discovered, developed, and proven by Dr. Rife. What is shocking is that this technology has been so effectively suppressed by the conventional medical establishment, and even when the appearance of a new disease like Morgellons appears which can be effectively treated by the technology, they not only continue to reject the technology, but they also refuse to acknowledge the existence of Morgellons itself as a physical reality. I hope that Dr. Rife is able to witness the miracle of his discovery in the healing of my daughter from his place of honor in the world above. I am extremely grateful for your assistance, and that Rife Digital has made the effort to sustain the Rife technology in order to make these machines available.
I became a believer in Dr Rife's discovery not so much after reading "The Cancer Cure that Worked", but after I was in a Rife Digital Professional healing session by a retired nurse. This Nurse had refused going for congenital treatment because Chemo and radiation was her specialty and she saw mostly pain and misery and little improvement with conventional medicine. After so many Rife Digital treatments and mixing it up with Re-connective Healing sessions, I saw her about 3 months later at a club meeting. I asked how she was doing and she said fine. I said, how are you "really" doing? She knew what I was asking and said (with a bright smile), she went for a check up and the docs are confused because they can''t find any cancer (even after subsequent tests). I said did you tell them what you have been doing? She said, "no, they wouldn't understand". Thanks again for the great customer support, Be Well, Steve E.
I Have had my husband on the Rife Digital Professional everyday for three months, alternating from Malaria (for the first 3 weeks) then HIV then HepC and then alternating from HIV to HepC. He also completed the three week - MMS HIV treatment (taking MMS every hour for eight hours a day). On completion of the three months he had his 3 monthly HIV blood test. We also asked for a liver function test as well. His liver function is back to normal and his CD4 count has gone from 207 to 417 this is a great improvement. We will continue with the Rife Digital but would like to know if we just stay now with the HIV or do we continue alternating between HIV and HEPC. We have him taking the Astragalus and Ganoderma (high doses everyday) he also takes several other immune boosters as well. Your advice is always appreciated. Kind regards, Teresa Cumbers
Re: Rife Digital Professional. To: Dr Pete Williams Hi there, I just wanted to give a testimonial on the rife digital machine. I had come back from holidays a few days ago. Upon returning, I noticed a sore throat, with very noticeably swollen tonsils. Using just one session of this (in fact, using a different set of frequency not the one in the book Gram Positive Bacteria), I was able to cure this immediately, no painful swallowing, tonsils shrunken back to normal size within a few hours. I am very impressed with the machine itself! Am glad I bought this!
Regarding The Rife Professional V2 Treatment: My present thought is that I must have been doing something right to stabilize the PSA. As I have reduced the Rife Machine treatment frequency after 3 months treatment [specialist definitively doesn't want to know about it ]I would like to have your valued advice as to when I should continue with the rife machine and what programs would best suit my condition?. I would be looking to have a further PSA reading in about 3 months time. I hope the above will meet with your request for a progress report Dr Peter and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Hi Dr Williams, I never thought this was possible (as I thought that rife was only for bacteria and viruses), but I used the back pain frequency for one whole night (7 hrs) and after only my left lower back had pain. After another night (not running any script), most of the pain was gone! All I can say is wow! Please let others know because back pain is such a serious pain and can be long term. Kind regards Gabe
I received my rife digital professional and am very, very happy with it. Thank you so so much. Having Lyme for six years I feared it progressing to the point of being helpless. I'm now feeling like my 'old' self and stronger than ever. It's been less than a month using the rife. Really a Miracle, Thank you. Sincerely, Susie
I have been using your machine for about 3 months now. Over the last couple of weeks, my ear cancer has been reducing in size, noticeable on a daily basis. My desire is to destroy it completely, At the moment I am not willing to undergo a CT scan and perhaps surgery to remove my lymph gland and the SCC on my ear, unless there is no other option. I will purchase the Rife Healing Belt now off you and put the belt over my ear, I think it would be more viable to have the frequencies at the point of the ear. Many Thanks, Rob Baillie
Recently my Doctor told me I had a Thyroid problem and scheduled me to see a specialist. Before my visit I used the Rife Professional Machine, and when I went in to the specialist their test showed it was normal. The test results showed it is a 4.82 and the Doctor said if it is 5 or lower it is normal. The Specialist showed me that when the other Doctor checked me it was over 8 and she could not explain why it is suddenly normal. My question is how often should I repeat the Rife Thyroid treatment for it to stay at the normal level? Monthly, quarterly, annually? Thanks Nick Promenart
This is just a thank you letter. What a difference it makes to have a real person at Rife Digital - answering questions personally, efficiently, thoroughly and promptly. The machine is working well and we are thrilled with it and will recommend it to others. It is helping me with a tooth that will only be attended to in a month's time as I am in Australia at present. Initially we thought it was going to be complicated and time-consuming because of changing the program for different members of the family. But my 9 year old Grandson got the hang of it very quickly and programmed his own treatment for Dermatitis - Exfoliate. Warm regards Pippa
Hi Dr Peter, This is George from Greece. I have had the machine for about 3 weeks now. A lot of changes - for the good. My mother has taken herself off morphine, given up the wheel chair and most of the coughing. Not out of the woods yet but in a lot better place than she was 6 weeks ago. I have mentioned the machine to several people and I have been pleasantly surprised by a positive response. Especially from a few people who have seen mother through this process and know others with major challenges. I would like to start trying to sell the units at some point soon so will be needing your input on that. Have more questions but get to them later. Look forward to hearing from you.
