Hey rife users, someone is loaning me a rife machine, which I'll get Friday. Dont' know the model yet so it's a borrow with possibility of buying. =)

Can I use this while I'm still under antibiotic treatment, which currently is doxy and augmentin... or do I need to wait until I'm done with treatment?

Thanks for all your help guys.

Hey Melody, from what I understand, you can still do it, but it isn't as effective as if you are off antibiotics.

This is according to BR's book and other people who rife.

Take care,
Ocean

I use rife with abx. My LLMD says that anything that threatens borrelia will drive it into cyst form.

Some people think that rife does not drive it into cyst form. That is a guess and does not make sense to me. Just my opinion.

Rife can be used for many things besides borrelia so if you are worried about that, you can use it for other things and just use the abx for lyme and rife for other things.

I use muscle testing and only need rife rarely for lyme. I often need treatment for viruses, rickettsia, lymph drainage, dental, parasites, fungus, mycotoxins etc. etc..

Frequencies will not kill as many spirochetes since the antibiotic is already doing most of that part.

That means that the frequency treatment is not going to work as well as it would if you were not on antibiotics, but it does not mean that you should stop antibiotics to make frequency treatments more effective.

The object of the overall treatment is to kill as much Lyme as possible, not to trade effectiveness of one or the other treatment.

I look at it this way. If the antibiotics miss anything, the frequencies may kill any leftovers. The frequency treatment may also weaken Lyme allowing the antibiotics to kill more than it would otherwise.

On thing that anyone who is taking antibiotics should do is drink Green Tea. At least one study indicated that the addition of Green Tea increases the effectiveness of antibiotics three times. That is no small amount.

Thanks for the info on this subject.

And about the green tea/// thats amazing!!

Wow.

I just bought some too!..yeah.!

I Noticed what Terry does.. I have rarely used it as it does not seem to affect the Lyme while in am on ABX.. But use it for detox and Lymph and Liver support and Viruses too.

So .. yeah you can use it for those supports and you do not have to just hit lyme. I am still learning all this.

But.. finding it has helepd with my detox and liver support during treatment. That is a good thing.

When I am off abx I will try more of the Lyme protocols.

So what does get those Cysts ?????

I'm not even considering stopping the abx to do rife, I was just wondering if doing the rife now would create a problem for me.

So y'all don't know of any reason why I can't do rife with the abx, right?

The only reason would be the fact that being on abx makes the spirochetes go into hiding.

So it makes sense that if you are not on abx, the keets are caught off-guard by the Rife treatment.... and more will be killed.

Lymetoo,

That's what Bryan Rosner believes too.

Lymetoo,

What's your opinion on Benicar?

I rifed while I was on an oral regimen post IV. I kept rifing for a year and then dropped the orals.

I found rifing for lyme and co-inf still made me herx even on abx.

I know of no reason you cannot do both. Since it is unlikely to cause any problems, it should only be able to make your treatment more effective than it would be without frequency treatments.

You can also use it for any co-infections you may suspect you have. These co-infections are usually not pleomorphic pathogens, so the presence of antibiotics should not interfere with any other treatment.
