The RIFE Machine?? Does It Help Lupus??

The RIFE Machine?? Does It Help Lupus??

Someone told me about the RIFE machine and how it is good for treatment of lupus. It is a micro pulse generator. Has anybody else ever heard of it? Or tried it? Any information is welcome!

Hi @A MyLupusTeam Member
The Rife machine was introduced in the 1930s by Dr. Rife as a cure for cancer. It has never proved to be useful in the treatment of any disease through scientific testing.

There are so many promising research efforts under way to treat, and yes, cure lupus. I fully expect a cure in less than 10 years. I post information on lupus research, and I'm happy to share them with you.

Be well, live long, and prosper.

I have never heard of this before reading your question. So, I went off and did a little research. There were no autoimmunity or lupus testimonials on the RIFE website. I found that interesting. I could not find a single scholarly article or study. I can't find a clear explanation of the "science" behind the RIFE machine. If it was an effective tool against lupus, I think there would be more quality information out there. Linda

Hi @A MyLupusTeam Member,

That's a very low dose for Lyrica. The usual recommended dose is 75-600 mg/day. You may be especially sensitive to it. That's not uncommon.

Yes, Lyrica can cause headaches. You also get headaches when you stop it, but you're not taking very much. Be sure to let your doctor know about it, as it also can cause head pain (not your usual headache) and neuralgia.

Here's a reference for you on the adverse side effects of Lyrica:

Be well,

I would try things like to tumeric first. It's a great, natural anti-inflammatory. Drugs like Lyrica and Cymbalta also reduce inflammation. I'd recommend prednisone, the first "go to drug" recommended by allopaths, but I hate it.

If it was a proven good treatment for lupus, doctors would be using it.
