Are Rife Machines Illegal?

In some countries, any apparatus or device bearing the name Rife Machine would be stopped at the border. In other countries, they are warmly welcomed. Today the name may still be a problem, even though most devices that bear the name are Rife in name only.

There are not prohibitions regarding owning or using or manufacturing Rife machines. There are legal concerns, however, pertaining to claims or promises of results. If you are sharing your machine or information with someone, it is imperative that you emphasize that these devices are for experimental use only. They are not approved medical devices.

I must be very careful about what I say about it. Is that true?

It is terribly important that users not give people false hope. Honesty is always the best policy, and this especially applies to issues of great importance.

Most Rife machines are intended for home remedy, and are not approved for medical use. Doctors are not allowed to use them in their practice. These regulations do not apply to private users. Obviously, users must not do anything with the machine that might be construed as practicing medicine.

From a technical point of view, the device is merely delivering audio frequency to the body, which is in principal, indistinguishable from any other audio equipment, like a TV, or a stereo. In the privacy of their own homes, devices of this kind, used according to their intent, we are lead to believe, is perfectly safe and legal. If at any time a user realizes a change that is attributed to one of these devices, it is reasonable and expected that a user may report that effect. If it is a significant change to their well being, it may be important that they do so, and the amount of hazard, or risk involved, should not escalate because of it.

These reports are always considered to be anecdotal evidence, and not of any scientific value. Therefore they are also of no particular interest in medicine, or to medical authority for the purposes of enforcement, lawful or otherwise. Nevertheless, it is routine that two users with the same problem will get the same results. A percentage of users with the same problem will respond differently. Because not all people are the same, it is necessary to always state that results vary from user to user.

Is Rife Technology Quackery?

Absolutely not. Medical practitioners must operate their business according to their licenses and certifications. They are presumably allowed to use any device that is approved. Rife devices of various types, (not bearing the name Rife) were approved for use in conventional medicine before 1972.

A quack is a doctor who practices medicine after his license has been revoked. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Rife technology.

I’ve heard I can use the machine on my pets. Is that true?

As a matter of fact, Rife technology has been approved for veterinary use for some time now. Many of JWLABS customers are using Model A with their pets, sometimes with remarkable results.
