Instructions for the use of

Rife Pad Machine Rife Ray Tube Machine

Introduction: This article was written by John Marsh back in the 1950's/60's. It has been made avaliable here so people will be able to read it and gain some understanding of how to use Rife type frequency instruments. His article should not be taken as any form of medical advice.


John Marsh's terminology dictionary is given first so that the reader will better understand the various terms used in this article he wrote.

AMPLIFIER: To amplify means to enlarge or to expand with power. A device to magnify waves or sound. The amplifier in the Rife Frequency Instrument expands the wave of electronic emission so they will travel on a radio band (RF carrier frequency) of energy into the area being affected.

ANODE: The positive pole or electrode (metal hand cylinder) of a device. It is the positive electrode toward which the negative ions migrate.

AUDIBLE: That may be heard; perceivable by the ear; loud enough to be heard.

AUDIO FREQUENCY: Any frequency corresponding to a normally audible sound wave.

BLOOD TRANSFUSION: The transference of blood from one person to another.

CALIBRATE: To adjust to scale or standard any graduated instrument. To ascertain, usually by comparison with a standard, the locations at which scale graduations should be placed. To correspond to a series of values of the quantity which an instrument (such as the Rife Frequency Instrument) is to measure.

CARRIER WAVE: A radio frequency used to transmit a lower frequency, generally in the audio range of frequencies, through space.

CATHODE: In an electron tube an electrode through which a primary stream of electrons enters the inner electrode space. In essence, it is generally termed as a negative electrode (metal hand cylinder.

CAUSITIVE AGENT: The chemicals, acids, or micro-organisms (virus, fungi, bacteria) which are the causes of disease.

CONSTITUENT: Constituting or existing as an essential component or ingredient; forming, composing, or making as an essential part; component; elementary; as, oxygen and hydrogen are the "constituent" parts of water.

COORDINATIVE: To coordinate one thing with another. Such as, in the use of the Rife Frequency Instrument, where the frequency wave or resonance emitted, coordinated with the chemical negative power in the organism to destroy it with a coordinative resonation.

CULTURES: The propagation of micro-organisms or living tissue cells in a special media conducive to their growth.

DEVITALIZATION: The act of devitalizing or state of being devitalized.

DEVITALIZE: To deprive of vitality or the power to sustain vitality: to destroy, eliminate.

ELECTRON TRANSMISSION: The process applied in the transmitting of a media of light incident upon a radio wave. The act of transmitting a signal or frequency of an electro-magnetic pressure field. Sound and light are coincidental with an electron as being a motivating force or particle and an intricate segment of the atom nucleus.

ELECTROSTATIC ENERGY: A quantity of static electricity (or electricity at rest as distinguished from an electric current) that exists on an electrified surface of an insulating material or conductor. Better known as arrested electricity, which is controlled differently than regular electricity through currents.

ELECTRON: One of the smallest known particles having an electric charge. Its charge may be either positive or negative, according to its location within the atom. "Negative" electrons are located in the part of the atom outside the nucleus. "Positive" electrons are located within the nucleus. It is the positive" electrons (or "positrons") emitted from the Rife Frequency Instruments which are the devitalizing agent that destroys the micro-organisms (which are the causative agents of disease within the human body.)

FREQUENCY: Time spacing between emissions. An example: the frequency of vibration in a second to produce a given tone.

FREQUENCY COUNTER: An instrument for counting the emissions given out by the instrument to a specific frequency in coordination with the frequency emitted from the chemical constituents of the micro-organism.

FUNGUS: A growth on the body (resembling a fungus - fungus meaning: anyone of a class of vegetable organisms of a low order of development, including mushrooms, toadstools, molds, etc.). A spongy mass of morbid granulation tissue.

HARMONIC MORTAL OSCILLATORY RATE: a band or wave of frequency resonance oscillating (vibrating) at a rate of speed coordinative with, or identical to, the resonance of the life of a specific micro-organism. (The resonance from the Instrument will destroy the micro-organism because this frequency wave (or resonance) emitted from the Instrument is of a "positive" nature and the coordinative resonance of the micro-organism is of a "negative" nature.

INTRAVENOUS: Situated within the vein or veins.

MALIGNANT: a tendency to go from bad to worse, virulent, the degree of pathogenicity of a micro-organism as indicated by case fatality rates and/or its ability to invade the tissues of the host or neighboring tissues.

MEDIA: A variety of minerals and combinations of materials used for cultivations of micro-organisms. 

METABOLISM: To turn about, change, alter. The ,sum of all the physical and chemical processes by which living organized substance is produced and maintained, as in catabolism of cells.

NUCLEUS: Central part of any body; or that about which matter is collected.

OSCILLATORY RATE: The speed at which the frequency or resonant waves travel.

PATHOGENIC: Giving origin to disease or to morbid symptoms.

POSITRON: A nuclear particle located in the nucleus of the atom having the same mass as an electron and a positive charge equal in magnitude to the negative charge of an electron. The Rife Frequency Instrument is the only known system of positron emission under controlled measures. "Positron" is a synonym of "positive electron."


PRENATAL: Existing or occurring before birth.

PROBE: A resonant conductor which is placed in a wave-guide or cavity resonator for the purpose of inserting or withdrawing electro-magnetic energy.

RADIO WAVE: An electromagnetic wave used in radio. Specifically such a wave used in radio operations other than in radar or television.

RESONANCE: Vibrations that oscillate with greater amplitude at a frequency causing it to resonate. Example, if you resonate a tuning fork of a "C" pitch at one end of a room, when struck it will cause the resonation of another tuning fork of a "C" pitch at the other end of the room.

SOUND WAVE: An alteration in pressure, stress, particle displacement, particle velocity, which is propagated in an elastic material.

SPACE CHARGE: The net electric charge within a given volume. A negative charge in a vacuum tube resulting from electrons emitted from the cathode but not immediately drawn to the anode, therefore remaining in the space between the anode and cathode.

SUPER SUBSONIC BAND: Super means intense power. Subsonic means below, down, under, Band means wave, speed of travel. Super subsonic band means a speed less than the speed of sound; means "infrasonic" - a frequency lying below the speed of sound. The word infrasonic may be used as a modifier to signify employing or pertaining to infrasonic frequencies. Commonly called subsonic frequency.

TOXIN: In medicine, any poisonous albumin produced by bacterial action. The bacterial proteins resist the high temperature and seem to have the same properties in all bacteria, not, causing specific infection, but all alike causing fever, inflammation and suppuration; tuberculin is an example.

TRANSMISSION: The passage of energy from the transmitter to the receiver.

TUMOR: Swelling, morbid enlargement, a neoplasm, a mass of new tissue which persists and grows independently of its surrounding structures which has no physiological use.


I. Electron Transmission

A. The Rife Frequency Instrument applies electron (frequency) transmission in the form of “positive electrons” (or “positrons”) at variable frequencies "from an "applicator source."

1. There are two types of Rife Frequency Instruments.

a. A large instrument whose "applicator source"' consists of an anode and a cathode concealed in a glass tube [Ray tube, as shown below] surrounded by a helium gas mixture (or an inert gas envelope).

Rife Ray Tube

b. A small instrument whose "applicator source" consists of a bare anode and cathode [Metal disks or metal hand cylinders, as shown below. Metal foot plates are also used] constructed from (a special type) metal for easy transmission flow of positrons.

Metal Hand Held Cylinder Electrodes

B. The electron transmission involved in the Frequency Instruments can be compared to the transmission of radio sound waves from a radio (and or audible).

1. A radio station transmits audible radio sound waves, and a receiver or receiving instrument (a radio) receives these waves and converts them into audible range for human hearing.

a. Those radio waves transmitted by a radio station can be heard in any location where the transmission instrument (the radio) is “plugged in" to an electrical outlet.

2. The Rife Frequency Instrument transmits radio sound waves; but, except for two instances, these sound waves are not audible to the human ear (except with a transducer).  

a. To very sensitive ears, they are audible when the anode is placed in front of one ear and the cathode is placed in front of the other ear.

b. These sound waves can be heard if an amplifier is attached to the Frequency Instrument.

1. Each frequency, when audible, has a different tone, note or sound.

2. With the amplifier the sound can become loud enough that the force and power of the sound can break objects such as glass, etc., when coordinated with the constituents of the materials affected.

C. The large Rife frequency instrument contains a variable “RF” (Radio Frequency) and a audio frequency generator attached by wires to an applicator tube. The small instrument used audio frequencies only.

1. When either the transmission tube antenna for the (large instrument) or the bare anode and cathode (small instrument) are used the harmonic mortal oscillatory rate of each electro-magnetic energy (or the coordinative resonance with the chemical constituents of the micro-living organism) is tuned in by turning the dial of the instrument to the proper setting and the “causative agent” (micro-living organisms) are thereby devitalize.

a. The pre-natal cell of bacteria and the pre-natal cell of the virus are destroyed with an excessive "space charge" of positive electrons (or positrons). This is a function of time with energy (frequencies), bombarding the microorganism to be devitalized.

1. When using the transmission tube [Ray tube], the space charge concentration is approximately 10 inches. In other words, the distance between the tube and the area of the body to which the tube is directed should be a distance of 10 inches or less.

2. When the bare anode and cathode are used this space charge concentration will be between anode and the cathode - whatever distance exists between them in contact with the body. The energy is controlled for the comfort of the patient.

11. Calibration of Frequencies

A. Dr. Royal Raymond Rife originally calibrated the frequencies in the Rife frequency instrument with the use of pure cultures of pathogenic diseases on slides under the Rife Virus Microscope. (Read "The Rife Microscope or facts and Their Fate" Reprint No. 47. Lee foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee, Wisconsin).

1. The Rife Virus Microscope Institute presently calibrates these instruments with the aid of a special frequency counter. This process is now possible because Dr. Rife spent many years in the laboratory establishing the mortal oscillatory rate of vibration of many pathogenic diseases, in some cases working with his colleagues and in other cases by himself. Now with the aid of modern equipment, RVMI can maintain accuracy of calibration of the instruments.

III. Process of elimination of devitalized "causative agents"

A. After the micro-living organisms are devitalized, the lymph system of the body, working like a vacuum sweeper, draws the destroyed particles from the areas in which they are devitalized and transports them through the bloodstream to the urinal and /or rectal elimination canals and out of the body.

1. The body then being free of the causative agent of a specific disease is given the opportunity to rebuild the destroyed or damaged cells in accordance with the damage brought about by the causative agent and other factors which may be involved.

IV. Necessary care during and/following a devitalization process

A. In cases of illness of a pathogenic nature of long-standing, the metabolism of the body being low and the body being in a very low physical condition, it is necessary at times to use medication in the form of drugs, blood plasma, added vitamins by way of intravenous injections and blood transfusions.

1. These more serious measures are needed when the physical condition of the patient has been seriously impair.

2. In any event, proper rest and a balanced diet are extremely necessary to aid the worthy body cells to overcome a weakened condition brought on by the destruction of the virus, fungi or bacteria.

a. It should be remembered at all times that nature cannot erase a condition of long-standing "overnight."

b. When a disease has been of long-standing (for a period of, for instance, eight months or more) a person must bear in mind two important factors.

1. The disease has been damaging and destroying cells, not only for the length of time since the disease was detected and diagnosed, but for a period of time prior to detection. In the case of cancer, for example, the pre-detection period may be as long as five years.

2. In many cases, disease remedies of various types have been used prior to the use of the Rife Frequency Instrument. These remedies may have been detrimental instead of helpful to the body.

c. It should not be assumed that with the use of the Rife Frequency Instrument these diseases will be removed immediately. Time must be allowed for the body to rebuild itself, and proper care of the body is essential to the return of good health.

V. Toxins and their effect

A. After one or more sets of frequencies have been transmitted into the affected areas, toxins often result from the devitalization process.

1. The presence of these toxins often causes pain in the body for a short time, usually in the area in which the devitalization process has taken place. However, the presence of these toxins does not ALWAYS result in pain.

a. The reason for the difference in the reaction of (1) separate individuals and (2) the same individual during separate periods of time is as follows:

1. When the body IS functioning normally in its elimination process, the toxins will not result in pain.

2. When the body IS NOT functioning normally in its elimination process, the toxins will result in a brief period of pain, comparatively speaking. For example, in the actual case of an injury to the left knee of a woman: the results of the injury were evident in a pain which she suffered daily and continually for four years. Following use of the Rife Frequency Instrument for the third time, she suffered a period of pain. This reaction was more severe than any pain she suffered due to the injury itself during the previous four year period. However, take note of its brief duration. This case is comparable to almost all others on record.

b. Even though it is generally brief, a person should be aware of the possibility of the above-described reaction so that its actual occurrence will not be misinterpreted as increased pain caused by the disease itself.

c. Originally, the pain caused by the disease itself will be considerably lessened immediately following this brief period of intensified pain caused by the toxins, and continues to taper off until it is completely eliminated.

d. This entire process varies, of course, in accordance with the age, general health, proper or improper circulation; normal or poor bowel and urine elimination, normal or poor function of the lymph system.

e. When these conditions are favorable, the toxins and the devitalize particles of the causative agent are eliminated without a noticeable sensation of pain in relation to this elimination process. In other words, the intensity or the lack of pain in this regard is dependent on the conditions stated above in “d.”

VI. Extra precautions following an illness of long-standing

A. It is necessary to be sure that a person, whose body has been weakened due to one or more diseases of a serious nature, take extra precautions concerning his health, even after the causative agents of that disease, or those diseases have been devitalize.

1. When a person’s body has been weakened by a disease of a serious nature, many body cells have been destroyed or damaged.

a. Therefore, the body must have TIME to rebuild its strength and resistance through proper rest, a balanced diet, etc. These factors cannot be over emphasized because they are ESSENTIAL for the rebuilding of the body to a state of good health.

b. Until TIME and NATURE have had this opportunity, the body would be susceptible to other serious diseases more readily than under ordinary circumstances.

1. For example, if a person should contract a cold in this weakened condition; pneumonia could develop much more easily than ordinarily. Therefore, a person should use the instrument, following a serious illness, for a cold, even if he might not "take time" if the body was and had been healthy prior to the cold.

In other words, the Instrument can and should be used EVERY time a person contracts a cold, but it is EXTREMELY important to use it if the body is still recuperating from the effects of serious illness.

This example would hold true with other situations of like nature. TAKE DOUBLE PRECAUTIONS UNTIL THE BODY HAS REGAINED STRENGTH AND RESISTANCE.

General procedure for all diseases and abnormal conditions

I. General information concerning the anode and cathode

A. The term "anode" in these INSTRUCTIONS refers to an insulated wire and a probe [Metal hand cylinder] attached to one end of it. The term "cathode" applies to another such wire and probe [Metal hand cylinder].

1. The definition for "anode" is: the positive pole or electrode of a device. It is the positive electrode toward which the negative ions migrate.

2. The definition for "cathode" is: in an electron tube, it is an electrode through which a primary stream of electrons enters the inner electrode space. In essence, it is generally termed as a negative electrode.

3. In the case of the Rife Frequency Instrument [The type which does not use a Ray Tube], one wire and probe [Metal hand cylinder or foot plate] become the "anode" when plugged into the opening of the output.

4. The other wire and probe [Metal hand cylinder or foot plate] becomes the "cathode" when plugged into the opening of the output.

5. In other words, the mechanism within the Instrument itself is responsible for one wire responding as a positive pole (anode) and the other as a negative pole (cathode).

B. When applying the anode and cathode to the body, the distance between them will be determined by the nature of the diseased area. The distance between the anode and the cathode will vary according to the size, depth, and the location of each specific disease.

1. The following are general instructions concerning the placement of the anode and cathode:

a. When possible, the anode and cathode should be placed so that the edge of the "anode" is within 1 inch of one side of the diseased area and the edge of the "cathode" is within 1 inch of the other side of the diseased area. This is possible in most cases with boils, warts, fungi, impetigo, athlete’s foot, "wens" (lymph nodes), etc.

b. If the disease or condition is more of an internal nature, place the anode and cathode [Foot plates] in a position whereby the transmission of the frequency emitted by them will make a "complete circuit" in the infected area, and not merely the "surface area." For example, if the patient's physician diagnosed the ailment as a tumor on the colon near the left side, do not place the anode and cathode an inch on either side of the diseased area. Instead, place one on each side of the body, centrally located between the front and back of the body, in direct line with the tumor or directly over the tumor on the front of the body and in a position on the back which corresponds with the location of the tumor. In this way the transmission of the frequency is not merely affecting the surface portion of the tumor, but is penetrating the tumor in its entirety.

c. The anode and cathode must always come in direct contact with the bare flesh. If either or both are touching hair or clothing the circuit will be broken. [If terry cloth covers are use with the hand cylinders or foot plates then they must be wet in order to make them conductive so the frequencies will enter the body].

Preliminary Instructions Concerning "Chart for Diseases and Abnormal Conditions”

A. A single asterisk (*) to the' left of each specific disease or abnormal condition listed on the Chart (shown below) indicates that the disease or condition will respond favorably if the instrument is used as often as every day. If the disease or condition shows one asterisk and is also underlined, it indicates that the instrument can be used three times daily or twice if more convenient for the user).

Three asterisks (***) indicates that the disease or condition will respond favorably if the instrument is used every three days or twice a week, such as: Monday, Thursday, Sunday etc.

B. The difference in time element is based on the following factors:

1. The "three asterisk" types usually cover a greater area of the body and affect the blood stream more seriously. The "load" placed on the lymph system in these types is much greater, as a rule, due to (a) a greater quantity of devitalized micro-organisms and (b) a greater quantity of toxins.

2. Because the lymph system must carry off the devitalized micro-organisms and toxins, it must be given a three-day period instead of just one day before the instrument is used again for the same disease or abnormal condition.

a. If this devitalization process was employed more often than every three days, the lymph system could become "over loaded" with devitalized micro-organisms and toxins and the result would be an undue amount of pain; therefore, sufficient time must be allowed to "clear" the lymph system between these devitalization processes. [Many people are able to treat these conditions every two days (instead of every three days) if they do not have any adverse "overload" reactions. So each person will have to evaluate their own situation].

b. It is important to realize that once a series of treatments has been started it should be continued with faithful regularity. This is essential due to the fact that the frequencies emitted from the Instrument are trained on the cell of the micro-organism and can devitalize these destructive agents when they have reached that particular stage, BUT these frequencies are not trained on the chemical stage of development which takes place within the body that brings into being these premodal cells. Therefore, because "the causative agents of disease" are continually going from one stage of development to another and only the one stage is affected by the Instrument, the Instrument must be used regularly until all chemical imbalance (pertaining to the specific condition you are attempting to correct) is normalized. [Those with cancer need to understand that even if they eventually get a clean bill of health they will always be susceptible to this disease and should always do a maintenance treatment at least once a week for the rest of their lives or the disease may return].

c. It is significant also that the blood stream, as well as the cells, of the body have been contaminated with the "causative agents of disease," therefore, the use of the Instrument on schedule is essential to (a) help to build the cells and (b) to clean the blood stream.

d. It is obvious, then, that the regularity of the treatment is a very important determining factor in the length of time required to completely devitalize the "current" cause of a specific disease or condition.

3. Even though the "three asterisk" system is in effect, the "one asterisk” system can be used elsewhere, other than the area awaiting the three-day period to elapse.

EXAMPLE: If the instrument is applied to remove carcinoma: of the lungs (which is a "three asterisk" type), the instrument could be used for a boil on the face (which is a "one asterisk" type) daily.

4. Any specific disease located in any number of people may be subjected to the devitalization process with the same number of frequencies, the same number of times, the same length of time (in minutes), and with the same degree of regularity and yet each person may respond differently than every other person as to length of time required for recovery, relief of pain, toxin reaction, etc.

a. The reason for this is that the chemical imbalance which causes diseases to occur differs in its degree of abnormality in each individual. There are other factors involved also including the general health of each individual, the amount of rest and proper food he has, the amount of tension and worry - or the lack of it - he is subjected to during this period, the amount of medication he is taking (and the possible weakening or devitalizing effect it may be having on the body), the amount of supplemental vitamins, minerals, and proteins he is taking (if any), and other factors. All these differ with each individual.

b. Therefore, if one should find that the favorable reaction and recuperation or recovery is "slower" in his particular case than in some other similar case with which he is familiar, it should not be a cause for alarm. This is a situation which occurs also in the case of medical treatment, chiropractic, osteopathy, physical therapy, etc.

c. Always keep in mind that numerous factors are involved in each specific case; and therefore, each case will respond differently. These combined factors constitute the very reason that specific results cannot be guaranteed from the use of the Rife Frequency Instrument just as a medical doctor or member of one of the above-mentioned healing arts cannot GUARANTEE specific results from their form of treatment.

The Instrument will devitalize the causative agents of certain diseases and conditions. Time, Nature and the body must do the rest.

C. This Chart is designed to show the individual specific diseases and abnormal conditions. However, the FULL BAND [All of Rife’s frequencies] may be used on any disease or condition, if desired.

1. There is an advantage and a disadvantage in using the FULL BAND of Rife’s frequencies.

a. Advantage: By using the FULL BAND all the frequencies are applied to the body instead of the three to seven individual frequencies called for on the chart, according to which disease or condition you wish to affect.

EXAMPLE: By using the FULL BAND for Sinus Infection, instead of the several frequencies normally used, all frequencies the Instrument is capable of emitting would be in effect.

Therefore, because the anode and cathode are placed in the same location on the face for Sinus Infection, as it is for many other diseases and conditions, which would require more or different frequencies (such as Ear Fungi, Ringing in the Ears, Head Cold, etc.) such conditions, if present, would be affected at the same time as the Sinus Infection when using the FULL BAND of frequencies.

Then, too, there may be conditions present (in early stages) which one may not as yet be aware of because no pain or symptom has occurred. Such conditions would also be affected when using the FULL BAND of frequencies.

b. Disadvantage: When the full band is used, a second person is usually required to turn the FULL BAND dial. It is very easy for one person to use the Instrument by himself when using specific dial settings. But it is more difficult and where certain areas of the body are concerned almost impossible to use the Instrument alone when the FULL BAND is used.[This statement was true when John Marsh wrote this paper but because of today’s modern electronics it is now possible to operate a frequency generator without the need of a second person.]

Another factor to consider when using the FULL BAND of Rife’s frequencies is the specific frequencies suggested for the devitalization processes are transmitted only as often as all the other frequencies in the band. It has proven satisfactory, in view of these facts, to alternate the use of the specific frequencies of the FULL BAND during a series of devitalization processes.

Head Diseases

Introduction: In all cases of head diseases the anode and cathode probes must be placed with one on each side of the head allowing the diseased area to be between the flow of the effective frequencies being transmitted through the anode and cathode through the head. Thus allowing a complete circuit so the transmitted frequencies tuned in on the instrument for the specific disease of the head may be devitalized.

This method will be used throughout the entire body. The spacing of the anode and cathode, distance-wise, can be regulated in cases of growths; for instance, a "wen" (lymph node), boils, cysts, pustular acne, staphylococcus, eruptions or skin abrasions, tuberculosis of the gums, trench mouth, pyorrhea, cystic fibrosis, peptic ulcers, impetigo, ear canker, ear noises, ear fungus, migraine headaches, post-nasal drip, sinus, brain tumors, catarrhal secretions, glaucoma, cataract, moles, butterfly lupus, colds, flu, neoplasm’s, warts, and many other like diseases affecting the head.  
The spacing of the anode and cathode is placed, when convenient, within one inch from the outer circle of the anode and cathode on each side of the diseased area. This, of course, is determined at the area site. In the case of a boil on the nose with the anode and the cathode placed one inch from the outer edge of the boil with the boil directly in between them. In a case of this sort, the anode and cathode can be placed flat against the cheek or the side of the face thus allowing the transmission of the frequency to travel through the infected area causing the disease to diminish in size and leave through the devitalization of the causative agent. Always bear in mind the anode or cathode must always come in contact with the bare flesh and not touching any clothing of any kind, either hair or cloth, because the transmission cannot be made through these materials effectively. These articles would be the cause of breaking the circuit transmitted from the instrument into the cathode which would be the positive charge and out through the anode, the negative charge or visa-versa. [Remember, if terry cloth covers are used with the anode and cathode then they must be wet in order for the frequencies to enter the body]

Continually bear in mind the comfort of the person receiving the treatment. This comfort can best be explained in which the person must be placed in a restful position in holding the anode and cathode to their head while using the instrument on themselves, in these positions, that in a period of perhaps 30 minutes or more would not tire themselves. It is sometimes necessary to use either scotch tape, masking tape, adhesive tape to aid in the holding of the anode and cathode into the proper location while the user’s hands may be free to set and turn the necessary dials to tune in the frequencies to devitalize the causative agent of that particular disease. In every case as best explained here, the person will use the instrument on themselves and will be responsible to follow the necessary precautions of not overdoing it. [This above statement about the dial was true when John Marsh wrote this paper but because of today’s modern electronics no dials are needed to tune the frequencies] 

Each user will have a different capacity for the frequencies being transmitted into the body through the anode and cathode. Therefore, the instrument will contain a dial whereby each user will be able to control the quantity of power needed for this transmission as best suited to his taste completely. What is meant by this phrase is the fact that each person’s ability will vary as to the amount of power of frequency which gives off a tingling feeling at times that people mistake for being shocked like in case of electricity transmission. This is a supersonic transmission when electricity is transmitted into the body causing pain but in the case of these frequencies it is a vibration and not electrical power as one thinks of electricity in its use, therefore, these vibrations are mistakenly accepted when the user is not as well versed on this subject as they should be to understand its use. We advise the user to definitely understand how a frequency can be transmitted through the body safely without any detrimental effect to the cells, blood, bones, nerves, muscles, eyesight, sex organs, etc. This understandability will permit the user to direct these frequencies to himself without fear, which is also a causative agent or the symptoms of the disease that he had just cleared himself of as to its cause. This will make him believe that the instrument had not devitalized the causative agent of the disease even though it is gone; the fear that he had caused the chemical balance of his body to become unbalanced and the symptoms still remained as a falsehood to the true cause. [The instrument that John Marsh is talking about in the above statement did not use an RF (Radio Frequency) carrier. When an RF carrier frequency is used then the person holding the anode and cathode (or metal hand cylinders) will feel nothing]
The time needed for each frequency necessary to devitalize the causative agent of a certain disease will always be no less than 3 minutes if the space between the anode and cathode does not exceed 9 inches. However, if the space between the anode and cathode exceeds 9 inches then it will be necessary to transmit these frequencies at 5 minutes each. The time element will be governed according to the distance needed for this devitalization process. This is determined by the user as to the area of the disease being devitalized.

The Neck: most diseases affecting the neck are as follows: tuberculosis, tonsillitis, pustular acne, laryngitis, dermatitis, colds, boils, staphylococcus, cysts, flu, lymph nodes, muscular stiffness, carcinoma, sarcoma, and many others. These diseases are best eliminated by using the same system as stated in head diseases, including the usage or the chart for the specific disease, how affected electronically, the length of each frequency time element, and days in between.

The Chest: The diseases affecting this area are commonly known as: pustular acne, colds, cysts, bronchitis asthma, bronchial pneumonia, pneumonia, double pneumonia" tuberculosis, carcinoma, sarcoma, lymph nodes, dermatitis, staphylococcus, boils, bursitis, arthritis, types of heart ailments, valley fever, typhoid fever, flu, congestive lung ailments, and many others may be eliminated by using the same system as stated above, using the chart for time element.
