Any living thing that lives in or on you, that consumes your energy or resources, and that confers no benefit upon you in exchange, is a parasite. This includes insects, fungi, bacteria, and viruses.
It may surprise you to learn that, with the possible exception of viruses, all parasites themselves have parasites. Viruses and spirochetes can parasitize bacteria. Fungi can parasitize larger fungi, bacteria, and insects. Insects can harbour many different types of parasites internally and on the surface of their bodies.
Understandably, insect infestation sufferers wish to be rid of their pests the moment they get their hands on a Rife system, but care must be taken.
When you kill hundreds of thousands of large parasites like mites (“large” by comparison with bacteria), you’re leaving all their internal and external parasites alive. When the insect bodies break down, all those living fungi, bacteria, and viruses are released into your bloodstream.
And now you’re in big trouble. Since you’ve just killed their hosts of choice, you will have to take their place. You’ve just given your already-overburdened immune system a few million extra headaches to deal with. So the rule when rifing is this: Work from smallest to largest.
When you finally get to kill your biggest parasites, you will already have killed everything they might have otherwise unleashed.
