Medical Bio-Electronics Pioneer. Inventor. (In Russian: Георгий Лаховский) Born in Minsk, Imperial Russia. Studied in Odessa. Lived in Paris.

Georges Lakhovsky was an independent research scientist. This independence gave him the freedom to experiment with new and fresh ideas without being held to the dogma of the day. In the book "The secret of Life" he chronicles the portion of his work done in the early 1920's. The book was published in French in 1925. The driving force behind his research was his overwhelming desire to find the cause and cure of Cancer. Therefore, his theories and experiments revolved around that solution. A portion of this website has been dedicated to the presentation and perpetuation of his work.

Lakhovsky was knowledgeable in both engineering and biology. It was the meshing of these two sciences that helped him prove his theories. It had already been established by the 1920's that invisible radiations were constantly bombarding the earth. Lakhovsky believed that these ultra short waves (sometimes called penetrating waves, at the time) were what gave us life.

Lakhovsky believed that each of our cells was a minute resonate circuit and when these circuits were oscillating correctly we or any living thing were healthy. When an outside source caused our cells to oscillate at a different rate then disease set in. In his book "The Secret of Life" Lakhovsky wrote, "What is life? It is the dynamic equilibrium of all cells, the harmony of multiple radiations which react upon one another. What is disease? It is the oscillatory disequilibrium of cells, originating from eternal causes. It is, more especially, the struggle between microbic radiation and cellular radiation." He believed it was these radiations that kept our bodies oscillating correctly but too much or a distorted radiation would cause them to oscillate incorrectly.

Setting out to prove his theories, Lakhovsky felt that he could generate a practical application to enable the adversely effected cells to regain their full vitality by reinstating their proper oscillatory rate. Thus he invented the Multiple Wave Oscillator (originally called Radio-cellulo-oscillator). He felt that by giving the cells a large range of oscillating waves that the cells would find their proper frequency and therefore become strong enough to fight off the improper oscillations of microbes or be strong enough to fight back from such damage as that caused by smoking.

The universal nature of Lakhovsky's theories is extremely compelling. So, weather you believe in Royal Rife's microbe theory, (He claimed he "saw" the microbes that caused cancer with his Light Microscope) or in the "accepted" cause of cancer as being simply a weakened or suppressed immune system due to outside forces, Lakhovsky's theories are applicable.

To learn about Lakhovsky's many experiments you should read his book "The Secret of Life" which shows his many papers written and presented. Also included are the many scientist of his day that he worked with including the well known Professor D'Arsonval who wrote the preface to Lakhovsky's book. Right now I want to talk about his experiment with the Geraniums treated with the open metallic circuit which is what most of this web site is based on.

After evolving his Radio-cellulo-oscillator, Lakhovsky tried it out on bacteria cultures and found that it had no effect on them showing him that his machine was safe. He then inoculated plants with something that could produce tumors comparable to cancer in animals. He then periodically exposed the plant to radiation from his Radio-cellulo-oscillator. The tumor separated from the plant and fell off with a touch. He tried this 3 different times and all three experiments produced the same results.

Since Lakhovsky's belief was that living cells were tiny oscillators that were given life from penetrating radiation and the oscillation of these cells put off their own radiation he proceeded with an experiment to find out if indeed the penetrating radiation was what caused the cells to oscillate or if some other stimuli such as chemical energy was responsible for sustaining this oscillation.

Inoculating a number of plants the same way as was previously done, Lakhovsky placed a circular spiral of copper around one of the plants. After two weeks he discovered that all the tumorous plants or stalks without the protection of the copper spiral were dead. The plant with the copper wire was healthy. Lakhovsky believed that the copper wire had reacted to external atmospheric radiations creating an electromagnetic field which shielded the plant from any excess of cosmic waves.

Owing to the fact that we are not only constantly being bombarded with background radiation from space but are also living in a world of electric motors and wireless waves, our bodies are constantly taking a beating from all of these radiations. Lakhovsky also believed that any oscillating circuit regardless of size or shape would react to any external frequency to which it was resonant. This reaction would help the circuit maintain proper oscillation.

Having discovered how good a copper wire could be for the body he developed belts, bracelets and collars, with tremendous success from trying them first on animals and then on people. It was likely it was Lakhovsky's work that was responsible for the trend in the 1950's of wearing a copper bracelet to help prevent arthritis. Today you can buy all kinds of bracelets for that purpose. Multiple Wave Oscillators and Rife Machines are available on the internet and there is a whole new wave of bioelectrical machines being developed.

During his lifetime, Lakhovsky was granted numerous
patents involving waveform conversions (2267353), oscillator tubes for multiple wavelengths (2351055), improving microphones (2263408,1640330), and railway construction (909619, 786037, 1054570, 1028743, 1136427)

At age 72, in 1942, Lakhovsky was struck by a limousine. Three days later Lakhovsky died in the hospital of his injuries.
