Understanding Electromagnetic Fields and Rife Technology
It should be noted that all Rife devices produce EMF to varying degrees. The earth itself produces a constant EMF field, which we are constantly exposed to. Many EMF researchers believe that the earth’s polarized EM field has potential health benefits. EMF can create or destroy, protect or restore. Yes EMF can do damage, but it can be directed as any form of energy to accomplish positive things as well. Electrical current and voltage can both destroy or construct depending on the application. The same holds true with EMF.
When an electrical current flows an electromagnetic field forms around the conductor. The voltage and current flowing and the type of current flow (Ac, Dc, pulsating Dc, etc) determine the size and strength of the EM field. As well as the conductor through which the current is flowing. The size, shape and type of conductor make a big difference in the EM Field.
- Ultraviolet (UV) light
- Visible light, infrared light (IR),
- Microwaves (MW)
- Radio-frequency radiation (RF)
- Magnetic fields from electric power systems are all parts of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum
The parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are characterized by their frequency or wavelength. The frequency and wavelength are related, and as the frequency rises the wavelength gets shorter. The frequency is the rate at which the electromagnetic field goes through one complete oscillation (cycle) and is usually given in Hertz (Hz), where one Hz is one cycle per second.
Electromagnetic fields are what are said to hold the atoms of matter together (in atomic theory). It is the force holding electrons in orbit around the nucleus of atoms. It is possible to make an atom of something resonate with an EM field, or current. If you increase the power of the resonance enough, heat will be generated, and if the power is increased enough, atomic structure will break down.
The interaction of biological material with an electromagnetic source depends on the frequency of the source. We usually talk about the electromagnetic spectrum as though it produced waves of energy. However, sometimes electromagnetic energy acts like particles rather than waves, particularly at high frequencies. The particle nature of electromagnetic energy is important because it is the energy per particle (or photons, as these particles are called) that determines what biological effects electromagnetic energy will have.
At the very high frequencies characteristic of UV and X-rays (less than 100 nanometers), electromagnetic particles (photons) have sufficient energy to break chemical bonds. This breaking of bonds is termed ionization, and this part of the electromagnetic spectrum is termed ionizing. The well-known biological effects of X-rays are associated with the ionization of molecules. At lower frequencies, such as those characteristic of visible light, radio-frequency radiation, and microwaves, the energy of a photon is very much below those needed to disrupt chemical bonds. This part of the electromagnetic spectrum is termed non-ionizing. Because non-ionizing electromagnetic energy cannot break chemical bonds there is no analogy between the biological effects of ionizing and non-ionizing electromagnetic energy.
Non-ionizing electromagnetic sources can produce biological effects. Many of the biological effects of ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared (IR) frequencies depend on the photon energy, but they involve electronic excitation rather than ionization, and do not occur at frequencies below that of infrared (IR) light (below 3 x 10^11 Hz). Radio-frequency and microwaves sources can cause effects by inducing electric currents in tissues, which cause heating.
The efficiency with which a non-ionizing electromagnetic source can induce electric currents, and thus produce heating, depends on the frequency of the source, and the size and orientation of the object being heated.
At frequencies below that used for broadcast AM radio (about 10^6 Hz), electromagnetic sources couple poorly with the bodies of humans and animals, and thus are very inefficient at inducing electric currents and causing heating.
Thus in terms of potential biological effects the electromagnetic spectrum can be divided into four portions:
- The ionizing radiation portion, where direct chemical damage can occur (X-rays, “vacuum” ultraviolet light). The non-ionizing portion of the spectrum:
- The optical radiation portion, were electron excitation can occur (ultraviolet light, visible light, infrared light).
- The portion where the wavelength is smaller than the body, and heating via induced currents can occur (microwaves and higher-frequency radio-frequency radiation).
- The portion where the wavelength is much larger than the body, and heating via induced currents seldom occurs (lower-frequency radio-frequency radiation, power frequencies fields and static fields).
Most Rife transmissions fall within a safe EMF level, are non-ionizing in nature, and are limited in both power as well as frequency output ranges so as not to produce destructive heat (as for example one would see with microwaves operating at 3.3ghz, the frequency to boil water).
It can also be seen that much higher powered Rife EMF output could pose potential health risk. Those constantly seeking “more power,” may actually be moving in the wrong direction.
A clear understanding of EMF can give one the proper balance of both the possible dangers as well as potential benefits.
In Rife equipment, the frequencies and electro-magnetic field is what does the work of killing, or altering living things, as well as altering none organic (none living) things. EM fields can change the way living things function, or stop their function altogether.
