Lakhovsky first experimented with plants and later confirmed his theory with animals and finally people. In 1924, he intentionally inoculated ten potted geranium plants with a tumor-causing disease. (Bacterium tumefaciens, a plant cancer). To one of the potted plants, he attached a single coil of heavy copper wire (ends not connected), holding it in place with a wooden stake stuck into the pot. The coil was about 30 cm in diameter and was fashioned around the center of the plant, about 8” up from the soil. All of the plants had identical care and were exposed to the same lighting conditions. Over the next 60 days, the nine (9) inoculated geranium plants without the coil withered and died from their tumors. The single plant with the attached coil threw off its tumors in about 30 days and continued to thrive and grow healthy. Why?

According to Lakhovsky, the coil acted as an antenna and was able to capture a portion of the frequency spectrum of cosmic waves that continually bombard the earth. These captured cosmic radiations (of the correct frequency range) were able to induce or reinforce favorable oscillations in plant cells. All living cells (plants or animals) in a healthy state oscillate at a characteristic frequency and maintain a condition that Lakhovsky referred to as equilibrium. Pathogenic organisms (disease-causing bacteria, virus, etc.) oscillate at a different frequency, and if brought into close proximity to those healthy cells, will adversely affect the frequency of the oscillations of those cells and introduce a state of disequilibrium. Lakhovsky essentially viewed it as a war taking place between the oscillatory energies of the pathogenic microbes and the host cells. If the host cells were sufficiently “swamped” by the invading organisms’ oscillations, then the host cell would succumb to the mounting disequilibrium and die off.

If the resonant oscillations (the characteristic, healthy frequency) of the host cell could be stimulated or reinforced, then the host cell would overcome the disequilibrium and overpower the oscillations of the pathogenic organisms, thus defeating them. In Lakhovsky’s plant experiment, the coil was able to capture cosmic radiations of a specific band of frequencies, which was able to reinforce the healthy, characteristic resonant frequency of that geranium plant cell. Lakhovsky later constructed a generator that could produce a wide spectrum of high frequency waves that could simulate the effects of captured cosmic radiations, but at much higher power levels. With his multi-wave oscillator Lakhovsky was able to stimulate diseased cells back into a healthy state much more quickly than depending on cosmic radiation alone. However, (and this is important) if coil antennas of the correct size are employed, cosmic radiation alone will stimulate the diseased cells back into a healthy state (in people or plants); it just takes longer.


Following the end of WWI and throughout the 1920’s, a Russian engineer living in France, named Georges Lakhovsky, developed an unusual theory about the nature of cellular level organization and biological activity. He theorized that various structures within a cell’s nucleus, such as the genetic strands of DNA, with its attendant protein sheath (along with cellular fluid), possessed electrical/magnetic attributes that are normally associated with electronic circuits: specifically radio circuits.

He proposed that the nuclear strands of DNA functioned exactly as the coils of a radio oscillator circuit and possessed the electrical characteristics of self-inductance. He further argued that since the DNA strands were physically separated from its surrounding protective sheath, that these two elements acted like the two plates of a capacitor and possessed the electrical characteristics of capacitance (the intracellular fluid possibly playing the role of the electrolytic capacitor). He proposed the revolutionary idea (at the time) that organic, biological substances possessed electromagnetic characteristics that could conduct electrons (current) and exhibit the property of conductance. Finally, he reasoned that any organic substrata, not being a perfect conductor, is going to exhibit some resistance to the flow of electrons, and therefore, the electrical characteristic of resistance is also present within this structure.

These three characteristics, inductance, capacitance, and resistance (or inversely, conductance), combined in a favorable configuration, can exhibit a phenomenon of physics known as resonance and create a type of radio circuit called an oscillator. Assuming that the values of inductance, capacitance, and resistance are fixed, an oscillator will continually produce a sine wave of a specific frequency. All oscillators have a feedback loop in which a portion of the “output” energy is returned to the “input” side of the circuit. This feedback of energy allows the oscillator to reinforce the resonance of the circuit and continually produce sine waves at its specific resonant frequency. If you change one of the parameters that affect the oscillation rate (e.g. the inductance, capacitance or the resistance), then the frequency of the oscillation will change.
