A Sound Strategy: How One Doctor Used Frequencies to Fight Cancer

In the 1950s, Dr. Adolfo Torres Lara, a cancer specialist in Mexico, gained notoriety for his using a frequency therapy device, known today as the Rife Machine, as a therapeutic treatment for cancer patients. According to a story published in the Mexican newspaper "El Heraldo" on January 5, 1958, Dr. Torres Lara claimed to have treated many cancer cases using the Rife Machine.

The Rife Machine was developed by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, an American inventor, and scientist who claimed to have discovered a method to treat cancer using electromagnetic frequencies. Rife's theories were based on the idea that every living organism has a resonant frequency (a unique biosignature), and that by identifying and using the correct frequency, it was possible to destroy cancer cells.

While Rife's theories were controversial, his work gained a following in the 1930s and 1940s, with some claiming to have successfully treated cancer using Rife's technology. However, Rife's work was largely discredited by the medical establishment, and his devices were never approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Despite this, Dr. Torres Lara continued to use the Rife Machine in his cancer treatments. According to the "El Heraldo" article, Dr. Torres Lara claimed that the Rife Machine had a success rate of over 80% in treating cancer patients. He also claimed that the treatment had no side effects and was painless.

It is important to note that the Rife Machine as a cancer treatment is not widely supported by the western medical community, and it is considered to be a form of alternative medicine. However, there are still those who continue to promote the Rife Machine as a therapeutic treatment for cancer. One such individual is Matthew Rife, a relative of Dr. Rife. Matthew has dedicated much of his life to continuing the research started by Royal, and he continues to promote the use of the Rife Machine.
