What type of Rife Machine do you have?
Also, are there any instructions with it?
First, I am not a doctor, and I am not an expert on Rife machines or zappers. I have built and used my own zapper and have had excellent results. As for Rife machines, I know only what I have researched, but will build and experiment with the Rife or similar design machine.
There are a number of Rife type machines available and considerable body of sometimes conflicting information about them. The origional Rife machines form the 1920's and 1930's (the first Rife designs) achieved some most impressive results, but the later and present machines do not appear quite as effective. I'm not sure that Rife knew exactly what he had and how it worked; an accidential discovery on his part as his field of speciality was optics. As he tried to refine his design in his later machines, they became less effective. Due to a campaign of misinformation, outright supperssion, historical negelct, and personal stubborness his origional prototype has been lost.
As near as I understand the theory (in simple terms), the operation is similar to a zapper; ie using frequency and/or frequency harmonics to destroy bacteria, parasites
etc. The zapper uses minute amounts of DC current with a simple frequency generation circuit to do this; the Rife type machines use a frequency generation and a transistor amplifer circuit coupled with a plasma light to create light wave frequencies and frequency harmonics. You connect your self to a zapper, and bathe in the light of a Rife machine.
Hope this helps
