The theories of this illustrious scientist are those that are closest to modern discoveries about the electrical properties of healthy and suffering cells. Lakhovsky argued that the cell can be compared to an oscillating electrical circuit capable of emitting and receiving electromagnetic radiation, of a specific amplitude and frequency, specific to each type of cell. All the tubular filaments of which a cell is composed (e.g. DNA, cytoskeletal microtubules, etc.) are always in the shape of a spiral, or helix, and therefore constitute microscopic oscillating circuits that can oscillate according to a specific frequency. When the balance of emission and reception of these elements is compromised, one inevitably goes towards a pathological process. For Lakhovsky the struggle between healthy cells and pathogens, such as viruses or bacteria, was a “radiation war”. If the radiations of the microbes were stronger, the cells began to oscillate irregularly and became ill; finally when they ceased to oscillate, they died.
The main effect of the frequencies delivered by the device he invented, the Multi Wave Oscillator (MWO), consists precisely in repolarizing diseased cells, raising their electric potential and improving their enzymatic kinetics in order to accelerate tissue repair times and of bones and produce a beneficial anti-edematous, anti-inflammatory and analgesic action.
George Lakhovsky was born in Russia in 1870. In 1894 he graduated in engineering and had the opportunity to perfect his culture in Paris where in 1905 he married a girl from this city, from which he had three children. In the early 1920s he developed his theories on the electromagnetic properties of cells and built a device called the Radio-cellular oscillator that he experimentally used on geraniums previously inoculated with cancer-generating bacteria. His experiments gave positive results: the cancer was eradicated by increasing the normal oscillations of healthy cells.
Following the positive results of these experiments he thought he could get better results. In 1931 he built an apparatus capable of generating a field, capable of producing a range of frequencies from 3 meters to infrared: the Multi Wave Oscillator. This device was successfully used in French, Swedish and Italian clinics to treat cancerous growths, lesions produced by radio burns, goiters and a range of diseases considered incurable.
In 1941, when France was occupied by the Germans Lakhovsky, a great anti-Nazi, had to leave Paris and thus moved to New York. His Multiple Wave Length Oscillator was used in the physiotherapy department of a large New York hospital, where arthritis, chronic bronchitis, congenital dislocations of the hip and other conditions were successfully treated.
Lakhovsky had laid the foundations of radiobiology, but the medical class did not want to follow up on his discoveries at his death and so today the use of his Oscillator for medical treatments is officially forbidden by the American Ministry of Health. He believed that one of the essential causes of cancer formation was the oscillatory imbalance of the cells. Therefore, to restore the cells in disequilibrium to their normal oscillations it was necessary to provide an oscillatory shock: an instrument capable of providing a multitude of frequencies, would have allowed each cell to vibrate in resonance with its own specific frequency.
From 1926 to 1938, he wrote 21 books, translated into different languages. Until his death in 1942, Lakhovsky treated and cured a large number of cancer patients thanks to his inventions.
