If you purchase a rife machine do you need a doctor to help you or can you learn to do it yourself?

It would be best to have guidance with a LL doctor.

Unfortunately, by law, MDs are not allowed to do that. They cannot even bring up the subject. If YOU ASK, they can share just a few basic thoughts they may have or their collective inpression of other patients' experiences but that is it.

LL NDs, however, CAN guide you. But, of course, not all LL NDs KNOW about rife but some do.

Be sure to first get Rosner's book. Details and a "walking tour" of sorts here:;f=1;t=117755;p=0

LL Naturopathic links here, too.

I don't think that doctor's are allowed to endorse or teach people about rife machines due to some law suits they could face because these machines are not endorsed by FDA or proven safe.

But there are some books on them (Bryan Rosner has written a good one) and there is a thread here with all kinds of information.

I am hoping to see the use of one demonstrated at a lyme support group - which had been offered by a leader that I spoke to last year. The group is not very close to where I live, but I would be willing to travel to see how it is done.

Perhaps you could contact a support group leader in your area to see if he/she could organize this...

Looks like Keebler and I wrote at the same time! [lol]

Rife machines are not FDA approved so I know of no doctor that can tell you how to use it because of those guidelines.

Try Bryan Rosner's Rife book for guidance. It has a lot of good information about types of machines to use and how to use them.

Usually when you purchase a machine, you get a book that shows how to start with frequencies.

Definitely get Bryan's book. or go to Amazon to buy it. You may even be able to find a used copy on ebay.

It's VERY easy. They do come with instructions.

I thought that rife machines have been FDA approved for pain mgmt in the last couple years. I'm pretty sure a ND told me that last year????

There is a machine on the market that is not a bonifide rife, has other functions that is appproved for pain. Some report very good success regarding help for certain pain patterns.

But that machine is not suggested as a "true" rife, it's not really called a rife. It seems to work with SOME of the rife frequencies, though it cannot be called a rife.

I recall details about that and, when all is said and done, it's not the best move as there are some limitations to that and it's far more expensive than a "true" rife would be.

Now, that may be a good machine for some folks, for some purposes, of course.

But if a "true" rife is desired, it's best to stick with that for the full range of rife frequencies.

A "true" rife is deemed an "experimental medical device" by the FDA and has certain restrictions.

"True" is just my use of the word but a rife should be a rife, in synch with the frequencies as outlined by Royal Rife, the inventor. Much more is explained in the rife links set.

However limited the other machine may be (compared to a rife), though, KUDOS to them for getting it FDA approved. Sadly, that likely cost a great deal of money that will need to be recouped.

Too bad the FDA would not approve a full range rife (and they have severely punished those who have tried) but this seems a step in the right direction (based on the little that I recall about it).

We have to think differenlty about all kinds of ways to releive pain, even if they just think it's just some sort of a frequency "massager" and not even aware that it may also target some bacteria that cause the pain in the first place.

Thanks everyone. You answered my question. I am ordering the book. Hopefully I can get enough money saved for a Rife machine soon.
