The Rise and Fall of a Scientific Genius (2008)

Only available in Canada, United States

By all accounts, those that knew Royal Raymond Rife considered him to be a scientific genius. He is reported to have invented super-microscopes which allowed him to see live microbes as small as a virus. Using direct observation he was able to determine the presence of a microorganism in cancerous tumors. This discovery led to the development of a cure for cancer and most infectious diseases with a device that could destroy any viral or bacterial microorganism with electrical pulses tuned to a specific frequency.

This is where Royal Rife’s story takes a tragic turn. A drugless cure for such devastating diseases was an anathema for the monopolistic nature of the medical establishment in America during that time. The FDA considered experiments with his frequency device to be a crime and in 1946 Rife was forced to close his lab. Over 70 years later, people are attempting to recreate Rife's lost discoveries and piece together the technology that promised miraculous cures.

Very informative documentary, marred by the nonstop amateurish "Creepy Halloween" style music. A few seconds of that here and there to highlight the mood of the scene would have been fine, but a whole movie with that background music seriously distracts from the presentation. I understand that a lot of the people and events in his life were creepy and weird, and that the final three decades of his life were about his personal deterioration as a response to those events, but the main theme of his life-work was a positive message of healing created by use of his remarkable abilities, and the music could have conveyed that truth instead of spending the whole movie trying to hammer home the negative aspects of his life.

We are the ones that continue to allow this broken record. We ultimately are the ones that allow them to get away with these travesties. It is not right, but until we stand up, it will be the same ol' same ol'. It is very clear. In the early 1900's the United States was very progressive, and blended nicely between "eastern" and "western" medicine. Then in 1913 or so, the Rockefeller group funded "grades" for all the universities. Any university that did not tow the "big pharma" line received a failing grade, and did not get a cut of the 500 million. At that time, that was an insane amount of money. Ever since then, any work that will potentially disturb the "money machine" (think of w hat they do for oil, and now remember that big pharma makes 10x+++ more than oil) well, they kill it. From Rife to Benveniste and even today Montagnier . If we had listened to Benveniste in the early 80's, we would now be using nothing but frequency and vibration to heal. The writing is on the wall. The answer is here. We just need to convince the money grubbers that we have had enough, and this is not ok! The world of science IS NOT FLAT. It's fine time to accept this. My promise is this. If I ever have enough money, you will see billboards. You will see adverts, you will see me pushing the truth forward. Because I for one am sick and tired of them dictating what is and is not medical science. We are making progress, as Montagnier just presented to UNESCO last September. So it is a start, but 70 years too late.
If you have influence, do the research on these people, and get the word out. The more who know, the sooner it will become mainstream like it should have been half a century ago.

I have paused and stopped and started this movie and the sound does not match the words coming out of the people's mouths.
Please reply GaiamTV. Thank you.

I second Tonyam's comment. It's so off that I don't know if I can watch this.

Terry Mack...I'm with you...if I had the money to fund it I would do the same. Set up research and development out of the reach of the greedy men in America that squash the progress toward a cure!

compelling and riveting I am sitting here stunned

I am horrified that such accomplishments could be so discarded by industry and those that were looking to make a buck. He believed in the science and the science was a cure. He was sold out repeatedly by those that desired money and they continually screwed his research and inventions for the sake of compensation for something that wasn't even theirs.

Hoxsey also was healing cancer but was run out of business by the same thugs. Read "When Healing Becomes a Crime".

As far as I know, alcoholism is not caused by a bacteria or a virus

I am not surprised, however I wonder why he didn't use the devise on himself for the Alcohol issue.
Or can we be honest to and realize that it is a repetitive action that creates limitation in a productive life.
No matter what, still a kick ass video of truth and human nature.
We do have individual power that can achieve amazing outcome.

If I won a huge lottery I would immediately contact specific guests to Gaiam TV and supply them with seed money to make their projects a reality (without any interference)!!!!!!!!!!!! There have been far too many discoveries that have come along that were stopped by the corrupt powers that be. Burzynski, Rife and Tesla, and on and on have contributed sooooooo much to the world only to be forgotten largely because their discoveries and genius would interrupt the money flow! What is wrong with this world? This infuriates me. We get what we deserve when we allow this to continue!
There are those who are courageous, moral, with plenty of integrity (and happen to have wealth). Those people need to step up to the plate and move us forward.
This movie/documentary shows the corruption to maintain the status quo while millions of us die needlessly.
The staff at Gaiam TV have contact with the brightest innovators with actual concrete ways to save humanity from itself. These innovators have the methods to transform this world to a veritable Garden of Eden. With my winnings I would buy an island, become a sovereign nation, and invite the best and the brightest to 'let loose' and be free from corrupted politicians and those that would like to keep us enslaved.

If only I could ...
(I know I am far from being the only one thinking this...)

Raymond Rife was a brilliant man, Thank you so much for bring this to our attention. This is yet another story of the many that were ahead of their time in medicine, science, farming, or any field. The story of Rife reminded me of another man who tried to bring a non destructive procedure for treating Cancer. His name was Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski's. Finally after a 15 year crusade to revoke his medical license, The Texas Medical Board ended their pursuit. They could not make a single case stick against him. His procedure is still the best against what modern medicine offers for cancer. Not only does his procedure give way better results, there are no harmful side effects. In his pursuit he has save lives over the years, many still alive 20 years later. His many patients came to protest in his defense when the Medical board and high courts came against him. Thank God it is a sign of changing times. In my opinion I am sure there is and have been much advancement for many diseases suppressed, all in the name of money. Leaving you as a patient, expendable. Thanks to the internet the truth is leaking out. In the last few years it has been proven top companies are putting poisonous chemicals in our water, food, pharmaceuticals, air, etc. Yet many people refuse to believe this? Your families are in harm’s way. This isn’t Disney World my friends; wake up its for real. The 99% are being lead down a road to a time that will make The Hunger Games look like a fairytale happy ending. Most of the middle class has already been eliminated and things and not looking to get better. There are many ways to get involved, Do it! Now is the time America, to open your windows and yell, “I’M AS MAD AS HELL AND I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE”.

I am still in amazement. The truth of it all is a bit much but ultimately knowledge is power. Love...............
