For Dr. George Lakhovsky, a Russian emigrant who lived and worked in Paris in the 1920s–1930s, life consisted of "the dynamic equilibrium of all cells, the harmony of multiple radiations which react one upon another." In other words, living cells and living beings radiate energy (electrical, for example) and are in turn affected by the energy radiations from life forms and other external sources.

Disease, then, for this pioneer in the field of biological resonance, is "the oscillatory disequilibrium of cells, originating from external causes . . . the struggle between microbic radiation and cellular radiation." If microbic radiation is predominant, Lakhovsky argued, disease will result. And when one's resistance is completely overwhelmed, death ensues.

With this radical new theory of the origins of disease, he developed the Lakhovsky Multiple Wave Oscillator (MWO). There is evidence that this device, which Lakhovsky utilized in the treatment and cure of many diseases, including cancer, was in fact the brainchild of Nikola Tesla, whom Lakhovsky turned to for assistance at several critical junctures in his research.

In 1935 Lakhovsky wrote: "My only wish is that my work be understood by all, even by those who are not familiar with scientific literature. I shall be more than gratified if I have succeeded in my attempt." He moved to New York in 1940, where he died suddenly in 1942 at the age of 73.
