Back in 2004, I ordered George Lakhovsky’s books in their French original, the early original editions, and began to translate quotes from them. These books are precious stones in a new science library, to be true, and the knowledge they bring is not theoretical, but very practical. More information is contained in my page on Georges Lakhovsky.
Georges Lakhovsky (1869-1942) was not an academic, but a practical man, a Russian engineer who emigrated to France before World War II. He found that all living cells possess attributes that normally are associated with electronic circuits. Observing that the oscillation of high frequency sine waves when sustained by a small, steady supply of energy of the right frequency would bring trigger resonance, Lakhovsky arranged experiments showing that living cells respond to oscillations contained in what he called ‘cosmic rays.’
On the basis of these insights, Lakhovsky construed devices for healing by the application of high frequency waves. Lakhovsky found that when those oscillations are resonating in sync with the energy code of the cell, the cell’s growth increases, while when frequencies differ, it weakens the vitality of cell. He further found that the cells of pathogenic organisms produce markedly different frequencies than healthy cells. He specifically observed that if he could increase the amplitude, but not the frequency, of the oscillations of healthy cells, this increase would dampen the oscillations produced by disease causing cells, thus bringing about their decline.
However, when he rose the amplitude of the disease causing cells, their oscillations would gain the upper hand and cause the person or plant to become weaker, and illness would worsen. As a result of these observations, Lakhovsky viewed the progression of disease as essentially a battle between resonant oscillations of host cells versus oscillations emanating from pathogenic organisms.
Lakhovsky initially proved his theory using plants. In December, 1924, he inoculated a set of ten germanium plants with a plant cancer that produced tumors. After thirty days, tumors had developed in all of the plants, upon which Lakhovsky took one of the ten infected plants and simply construed a heavy copper wire in a one loop, open-ended coil about thirty centimeter (12”) in diameter around the center of the plant and held it in place. The copper coil was found to collect and concentrate energy from extremely high frequency cosmic rays.
The diameter of the copper loop determined which range of frequencies would be captured. Lakhovsky found that the thirty centimeter loop captured frequencies that fell within the resonant frequency range of the plant’s cells. This captured energy thus reinforced the resonant oscillations naturally produced by the nucleus of the germanium’s cells. This allowed the plant to overwhelm the oscillations of the cancer cells and destroy the cancer. The tumors fell off in less than three weeks and by two months, the plant was thriving. All of the other cancer-inoculated plants, those that were not receiving the copper coil, died within thirty days.
Lakhovsky then proceeded to tackle cancerous growth in human beings and fashioned loops of copper wire that could be worn around the waist, neck, elbows, wrists, knees, or ankles of people. He found that over time relief of painful symptoms was obtained. These simple coils, worn continuously around certain parts of the body, would invigorate the vibrational strength of cells and increased the immune response which in turn took care of the offending pathogens. Next, Lakhovsky construed a device that produced a broad range of high frequency pulsed signals that radiate energy to the patient via two round resonators, one resonator acting as a transmitter and the other as a receiver.
The machine generates a very wide spectrum of high frequencies coupled with static high voltage charges applied to the resonators. These high voltages cause a corona discharge around the perimeter of the outside resonator ring that Lakhovsky called effluvia. The patient sat on a wooden stool in between the two resonators and was exposed to these energies for about fifteen minutes. The frequency waves sped up the recovery process by stimulating the resonance of healthy cells in the patient and in doing so, increased the immune response to the disease organisms.
Lakhovsky’s research demonstrates that it is experimentally possible to manipulate the resonance pattern of a cell’s vibrational field in order to actively fight a cancerous tumor, thus gradually eliminating the cancer. The special note of this treatment is that contrary to present-day cancer treatments, it changes the disease by changing the energy pattern of the affected cells, and not by chemically interfering with the cell’s metabolism. He called the cosmic energy field universion, which is the title of one of his lesser known books.
