Georges Lakhovsky was a Russian engineer who emigrated to France. In the late 1920's, Lakhovsky published a book in French called The Secret of Life. A few years later it was translated into Spanish, German, and Italian, but it was not until September, 1939 that it finally appeared in English; precisely when Hitler attacked Poland and kicked off World War II. The book received almost no reviews or attention in medical circles.
What Lakhovsky discovered was simply mind boggling: All living cells (plants, people, bacteria, parasites, etc.) possess attributes which normally are associated with electronic or electric circuits. These include resistance, capacitance, and inductance. These 3 electrical attributes, configured properly, will cause the recurrent generation of a sine wave, exhibiting an effect of physics known as resonance. These circuits can be called electromagnetic resonators, but more commonly are referred to as oscillators. Lakhovsky tells us that not only do all living cells produce and radiate oscillations of very high frequencies, but they also receive and respond to oscillations imposed upon them from outside sources.
If these outside oscillations are in sympathy (same frequency) with that of the cell, the strength and vigor of that cell will be reinforced and become stronger. If, on the other hand, these outside frequencies are dis-similar, the oscillations produced by the cell will be weakned and dampened, resulting in a loss of vigor for that cell. The cells of disease-causing organisms produce different frequencies than that of normal, healthy cells in plants, animals, or people. For people or plants suffering from disease conditions, Lakhovsky found that if he increased the amplitude (not the frequency) of the oscillations of healthy cells, this increase would overwhelm and dampened the oscillations produced by the disease-causing cells, thus bringing about the demise of the disease-causing cells. If he pumped up the amplitude of the disease-causing cells, their oscillations would gain the upper hand and cause the person or plant to become more ill.
