Dr. Ruth Drown: Crucified by the FDA & the AMA

by Marguerite dar Boggia

Dr. Ruth Drown was the most unique woman in developing radionics to heal people. She developed and refined a means of diagnosis, treatment, and visual representation on photographic plate of any cross section of disease organisms, tissue or organs of her choosing

She was born on October 21, 1891 at 3:11 AM in Greeley, Colorado. At the age of nineteen she married a farmer and had two children. She had domestic problems with her husband. She was endowed with a strong personality and would not be dominated by anyone. She separated from her husband in 1918.

Ruth’s father was a professional photographer. He taught her everything he knew about photography. This photographic knowledge was important for her future work.

She found work for maintenance, operation and repairs of addressing machines. She had no experience with mechanics, but this was the experience needed for her future work.

At this time building radios was very popular. She was fascinated with this hobby. In 1923, she worked as a part time office assistant for Dr. Frederick F. Strong, who used radio energies for healing of patients. Dr. Strong was using the techniques of Dr. Albert Abrams who discovered that all histological tissue radiates a vital life force. The tissues could be classified numerically. He used a pendulum on the abdomen of the patient for diagnosis and for healing.

When she was offered a full time job by Dr. Thomas McAllister, an osteopath, she accepted. He was delighted by her ambition. He lent her all his books and gave her instruction in the medical arts. Ruth went to a chiropractic school and in 1927 she became a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. While at school she experimented in new ways to use the vital life energy in the practice of radionics. She became convinced that the use of wall outlet AC electricity was a huge mistake and contaminated the patient with a coarse energy that was anathema to the subtler life force emanations. She developed her own technique, using a photographic plate. She was able to diagnose and treat at great distances.

She was an avid student of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and the Kaballa at the age of sixteen. Dr. Strong and Dr. Abrams also were familiar with the teachings of Theosophy.

In 1935, Ruth had perfected her instrument. She devised a way to channel the same vital Life force energy that she was detecting with the diagnosis portion of her instrument through a photographic plate. Utilizing a special reverse method of film development, she produced photographs of tissue anywhere within the body, using only a dried drop of the patient's blood on a piece of blotter paper.

In 1938 She published The Science and Philosophy of the Drown Radio Therapy. She believed that Life is energy; Life is consciousness and Life is substance. She explained the system this way on page 22: “A drop of blood is placed on a blotter. The atoms are crystallized, and remain stationary as far as our five senses can discern, but the energy constantly supplying the activity of the nucleus of the atom is very much active and alive, and goes back to the source, which is the path of the body.”

On Page 34 she writes: “So-called ‘space’ is proving that sound and light are carried instantly to any place in the world, and cannot be insulated. Our own photographs of an object or person in any part of the world, taken with the Drown Radio-Vision Instrument, using energy alone, and no visible light, disprove the idea that there can be just space, and show that space has within it all the qualities of light brought down to substance.”

On Page 59, she says: “When we place the blood of an individual, be he ill or healthy, into our instrument, we tune in on our dials to the rate of vibration of the organ or gland we desire to photograph. We next drop a film of the desired color sensitivity into the container of the hookup and use the same timing and development we would employ in taking a picture by the usual methods. Our photograph is then completed upon the film.

“This procedure is proof of the various states we have previously made concerning light. It is also proof that everything in the Universe has a rate of vibration, and that the emanation from any radio-active substance can produce its own picture. Therefore, if its action is the same as light, it must be a form of light.”

Ruth sought to measure the degree of deviation from perfection, and then to rectify any imbalances or deficiencies. Thus her rate for the liver is 48; this would be set on the instrument and the deviation from 0, tested. Any significant reading would indicate a problem, either in the liver or elsewhere in the body which was affecting the liver. Her principal treatment method was to feed the 'perfect' rate back to the respective diseased location in the patient, either by wires or remotely, the idea being that as new cells were created they would be healthy and would replace the diseased structures.4 She was exceedingly successful. She healed thousands of people.

She was brought to trial by the FDA on trumped up charges. The AMA rejected radionics. This was the beginning of her crucifixion. The FDA used her black box, with its knobs and photographic plate, against her for crossing the State line.

Arthur Young, the inventor of the Bell Helicopter, was tremendously impressed by Ruth Drown. He had a toothache. He asked Ruth to take a photograph of his condition. There was nothing like a camera in any sense of the word. The photographic plate was placed in a lightproof box and Arthur Young was connected up with it. She then withdrew the film and developed it in the light. This would normally have resulted in a light-struck film, but the picture was an 8 x 10 print, with a detailed photo of a tooth. He requested that she do it again. This time he put his hand on his jaw. It showed a TOOTH ENLARGED.

Arthur Young was so impressed with her work that when she was brought to trial, for fraud and medical quackery, he testified in her favor. When one of her patients was cross-examined by the attorney for the prosecution, the attorney vehemently queried: "You don't mean to tell me that she could diagnose at a distance!?" The patient replied. "Yes precisely that. I was in an automobile accident and called her by phone. She told me what bones were broken (from the blood spot) and this was confirmed later when x-rays were taken." Dr. Ruth Drown lost the case and was convicted. Ruth’s appeals dragged on unsuccessfully for years. Her instruments were seized and destroyed. Shortly after her release from a short term prison sentence, she suffered two strokes and died on March 13, 1965.

Many considered her: a medical genius and a brilliant woman.
