We have our Rife machine and had our first treatment last week. I'm reading Lyme Disease and Rife Machines and I find it very interesting and informative. We will follow the treatment guidelines from that book and recommended by the place we bought the machine. It's slow and steady type treatment. The treatment plan is a treatment one week and the next week and then every two weeks for the duration which could be 1.5 to ?? years. We start at 2 minutes for each frequency (totaling 10 minutes) and eventually work up to 3 minutes. I find the recommendations conservative which I like. But the treatment really packs a herx!

 

I experience almost immediate roving pain, joint pain, fatigue, a feeling of the flu and difficulty thinking. It does not seem to last more than a day or two so far. dd10 has not shown any changes except that today she suddenly took interest in loading and unloading the dishwasher and brushing her teeth All things she has never done willingly. dd11 has emotional liability, roving pain, and overall inability to function reasonably.

 

The book recommends that you remove all abx from treatment if possible to avoid any cysts and bacterial suppression. It warns that you will feel worse before feeling better. It's hard to go there again after all this time on abx. Between the three of us, only dd11 is still on abx because she can't maintain stability without it. She has herxed badly from today's rife session and I can just see the future with her on rife with no abx and it's a scary place to be. I'm going to have her read the book and see if she can get on board with me to possibly go back to where we were 2-3 years ago with our herxing and symptoms while we go through the treatment. I wish there was a guarantee to help with the decision. I may have to keep her on abx for a while and the book has a recommendation for slowly removing abx.

 

I feel confident that abx will not get us where we need to be and we are not where we need to be yet and this is the path that I'm being drawn to now. I would like to come and update on our progress for anyone in the future who may be trying to decide whether to rife or not.

Thank you so much for posting. Don't know why but I have a good feeling about your treatment with the Rife! Wish you the best!

 

Just test-drove :) the Bemer today and it seems that might be a good complement to the Rife??? It can cause fatigue in the beginning tho.

 

With patient's being prescribed the wrong medication as the 3rd leading cause of the death in the U.S., it makes you want to look at other healing methods that have worked for others in places like Europe. :)

 

Best wishes on healing and look forward to your posts. Take care!

Julia, thank you for your support and I sincerely hope your good feelings are right on target!!

 

Edit - meant to ask, what is the Bemer?

The Bemer is a mat you can lay on or put on different areas of the body that increases the microcirculation in the body. We have a practitioner that does treatments or you can buy your own. They are quite expensive! You can look them up at www.beamingbody.com Apparently, they are being used for healing athletes' injuries quicker, boost immune system, better sleep etc. They have done scientific studies and it is now FDA approved in the U.S. Have been using them in Europe for a long time. ;)

 

Seems like it might be a good complement to a lot of treatment being done on this forum. One woman in the seminar had bought one to use for winter depression and it helped that and got rid of her arthritis in her hands which surprised her!

 

Take care! :)

I'll recommend this to my mom who's having issues with arthritis! The link did not work for me but I'll try to google it to get more information. Sounds very cool and right up my alley.

 

dd11 herxed very badly from last weeks treatment so I will be slowing things down a little to ensure she can handle it. dd10 has had some joint pain and increased impulsiveness but she has also been sick so it's hard to tell what is going on with her. I know this will be a long process though so I will try to be patient.

I had never heard of a rife machine until now. I am reading up on them a bit, and I am curious what swayed you to try this route? So far as I know, we do not have lyme in the picture for any of us (DD was - on a western blot and hubby and I have not been tested). So I am not in the market or anything, but I like to stay up to date on various alternative practices/treatments that are out there.

 

I am sure this is incorrect, but so far they **look** a bit like a tens unit that is connected the hands instead of the back or other injured area. I am sure they work differently.

Hi. After 3 years of lyme treatment and running out of money but still having sick kids and still being sick myself, I had heard good things about the Rife machine on some lyme forums. I decided I needed to try some other things for us to get well and think outside the box!

 

We are new in our Rife journey so I can't recommend it too much but I am extremely hopeful. If you ever feel you may be dealing with lyme, I recommend the book Lyme Disease and Rife Machines.

Susan, can I ask if you tested your kids for methylation issues. Just wondering from those who are on tx 3 yrs and still sick. That is my next move. Had testing done yrs ago but never wanted to add to our already taxing tx. Just wondering, thanks, kathy.

Lismom, what tests do you do for methylation issues? I know that we did the KPU test which came back normal but we treated my dd10 with high zinc anyway due to overwhelming symptoms and she improved very much. I am working on finding a new doctor and we have one doctor we are working well with now but I'm not sure how much blood work he does and of course, money is a factor if insurance won't pay.

 

Thanks!

Update.......The Rife is a powerful tool! For dd10 and I, we can tolorate the herx, we have obvious herxing but it lasts a day or two and it's over until the next treatment every two weeks. I feel confident that this will help get us to another level of healing if we keep it up. I really love this machine.

 

But..,...dd11 herxes so badly with her treatments and for prologned periods of time that I've had to stop until I can get someone who is knowledgable and can help us through it. She must have such high toxic overload or had so much lyme and bartonella bacteria in her that it's too much for her.

 

I am finally able to take her to a lyme specialist in Wash DC which is about a 6 hour drive for us. We go at the end of this month.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences (even if they have not been all roses!).

 

Just read an article in the National News yesterday of testing being done in Russia by scientists where they have figured out that the '90% of unused DNA' in a humans' body actually responds to different frequencies and is able to communicate to the rest of your active DNA. They figure that what DNA is doing can be changed because of this finding. Fascinating stuff and supports using the Rife!

 

Best wishes with the new lyme specialist, so sorry you have to travel so far!! Ours is 20 min. away but I always feel bad for the patients that have to drive/fly to get there!

 

Take care.

Interesting!! I will look for that as I would like to read it. If I can just get her to a place where she can stand the herx, I really believe this will help. I have not tried the strep frequency yet but that will come at some point!

What rife machine did you end up using. I read up on the Rife machine a while back, and it was a swamp of conflicting information. Manufacturers each claimed their machine was effective. Some reported health risks due to RF exposure. The frequency list was said to be suspect.

 

There is also the Hulda Clark zapper. There seemed to be less controversy on this, its ineffective.

 

In the end I could not wade through all of the controversy to make any decision.
