What is Bioresonance therapy?
Every second of every day, we are faced with an increasing amount of environmental stressors and pathogens, some of which have become resistant to antibiotics. Parasites are one example – they have been known to cause many of the conditions that people suffer with in modern society. Energy medicine machines such as the Bicom have been used for over 35 years to try and eliminate these invaders without the use of drugs. In addition, bioresonance has supported many cancer patients, along with conventional treatment, with ground breaking results. Bio energetic medicine has even been effective in challenging cases such as those suffering from depression and addiction.
Biophysicists in the 1920’s discovered that cells emit energy and this energy can be measured and recorded as a frequency. These frequencies could be used to detect problems in a body and be used to treat a sick person.Many thousands of evidence based studies have been conducted since and many people testify to the benefits they have had with the treatment. Some might say it’s a Placebo effect but this cannot be the case on the many animals that have been effectively treated.
How was Bioresonance therapy developed?
Bioresonance therapy has its roots in the 1970s with Dr Franz Morell, a German medical doctor who used homeopathy in his practice. Homeopathy is believed to be an ‘information therapy’ as it is based on the fundamental concept that water has a memory. As such, homeopathic remedies use information from substances diluted many, many times in water, with the memory of the original substance being retained in that water. Morell wondered if it might be possible to develop a kind of ‘electronic homeopathy’ by using electromagnetic signals taken from a patient’s body. After all, our bodies are 70% water and so ‘information’ should be stored there if the water memory theory was correct. Morell began working with his electronics engineer son-in-law, Erich Rasche on developing such a therapy device. Together with bio-physicist Dr Ludger Mersmann, in 1977 they developed a filter to separate ‘unhealthy’ and ‘healthy’ electromagnetic signals coming from the body. This led to a biofeedback therapy device called the MORA using electrodes on the skin. These picked up energetic information, modified it and fed it back to the patient to strengthen the ‘healthy’ energies in the body and help weaken and eliminate the ‘unhealthy’ or ‘disease’ energies.
This early bioresonance device required tedious, manual setting up and Hans Brügemann, a colleague of Morell, saw the advantage of using a built-in computer to automate operation and make it easier to use. In 1987 he set up his own company (now Regumed GmbH) to make such a device. He called his device the BICOM and coined the term “bioresonance therapy” for the technique. Since then, Regumed has made continuous technical improvements to the BICOM, some of which have involved collaborating with biophysics researchers including Prof Cyril Smith (UK) and Prof Fritz Albert Popp (Germany). Current Bicom device models are shown on the “Products” page.
Today, there are over 8000 BICOM devices in Germany, (17,000 worldwide in 80 countries) used by both medical practitioners in private practice and by complementary therapists. Bioresonance therapy is widely used in other German-speaking countries such as Austria and Switzerland and also in the Netherlands and the UK. It is starting to become more well-known outside Europe, especially in China, where BICOM devices are used in government hospitals*, primarily children’s hospitals. In other countries, including Australia, bioresonance is seen as a complementary therapy.
* Note: this should not be interpreted as “endorsement” by the Chinese government.
How well tolerated is Bioresonance therapy?
Fewer and fewer patients are prepared to simply pop a pill when they feel unwell. People who are careful of their health and want to act responsibly in health matters are looking for alternatives. This is evident from the press portal run by DAK, one of Germany’s leading health funds. There is plenty of evidence to show that despite great advances in medicine, chronic disease is on the increase. How many children do you know with Food Intolerances, Asthma, Skin problems and other conditions? A holistic approach can produce results not experienced when just treating the actual symptom.
An increasing number of patients want to be involved in decisions about their fate rather than passively accepting prescriptions and medication. In the survey “The Germans and their Attitude to Illness and Health” conducted by the Allensbach Demoscopic Institute in 2000, around 70% of respondents complained that too few mainstream medical practitioners take an interest in naturopathy and alternative medicine.
The Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMW) discovered back in 2001 in its “New trends in medicine” project that increasingly people were turning away from scientifically based medicine and seeking help from complementary medicine.
The TNS Emnid Study “On the Future of Health” also shows that 2/3 of the population often find unconventional methods of healing better than orthodox medicine although they do not regard these methods as scientifically proven unlike orthodox medicine.
In the vast majority of cases Bioresonance therapy (BRT) is very well tolerated. It has been applied to a wide range of people, from babies to mature adults, for over 25 years. Regumed has risk management procedures in place to ensure patient safety and no serious side-effects have been reported. For those who require detoxification, treatment can sometimes lead to reactions for a short period of time, such as headache, slight nausea or tiredness. Some people feel tired for 24 hours after the treatment. These effects can be reduced by drinking plenty of clean, preferably filtered, or low mineral content water to help flush out the toxins.
Any of the above after effects are actually seen as good signs in naturopathy, even if they are a little uncomfortable, as it is evidence of a healing process. Although it may feel like nothing is happening during a treatment things are happening on the inside and these signs are an indicator that the body is using the information received from the BICOM.
Why doesn’t conventional medicine currently recognise Bioresonance?
Let us take the example of allergies. They represent a challenge and the opportunities for treating them with conventional medicine are often highly unsatisfactory. If there was just the slightest suspicion that new therapeutic approaches could bring relief, ethically oriented research should jump upon them with scientific enthusiasm. It would take very little time to determine whether the new method was a waste of time or whether something genuinely valuable lay behind it. For, ultimately, allergies are a condition which affects millions of people and responsibility for the nation’s health is at stake.
And why isn’t this the case?
Who are the authorities in the UK that determine what is scientifically recognized or not? They’re universities and the courts! Universities are traditionally the centres of modern scientific research. Research is costly and becoming ever more so. The funding universities receive from the state for research work has been inadequate for some time. Consequently sponsors are needed. Research work is commissioned and paid for by the pharmaceutical industry and other sectors of industry. University professors responsible for the research can also boost their salaries by this means. It is quite natural to wonder how objective and neutral research actually is today. You would also expect that careful study design would always produce the same or similar results. Far from the truth. How often do we read studies of the same topic with totally different, even contradictory results! There is little interest in alternative methods which are not backed by big investors. Professors who tackle these subjects have to fear of their jobs in certain circumstances.
As experts in their field, university professors are the highest authority for legal opinions. In case of doubt the judges decide, based on these opinions, what is the scientifically excepted standard (and what is accepted by conventional medicine) and what isn’t.
The pressure for new developments now no longer comes from above (science and politics) but from below (general public). The studies to recognise acupuncture were not proposed by the universities. The pressure from patients and therapists became so great that it was no longer possible to avoid tackling the subject. But it took nearly 40 years.
So it is not surprising if a relatively new method (although it has already been in existence over 35 years) is not exactly welcomed with open arms, especially if it means the scientific world view will have to be corrected (once more).
Traditionally people initially fight against every new idea since they don’t want to move away from the long-standing structures. If that no longer works they simply ignore the method including all the success stories and studies associated with it. Sometimes it is the opponents who involuntary help a method gain recognition. An ‘admonition association instituted legal proceedings so that, like it or not, the courts had to tackle the subject of bioresonance.
Following a five year legal battle and based on the situation as regards clinical trials, the Munich higher regional court has now officially allowed to claim “the bioresonance method can diagnose and effectively treat allergies” to be used in advertising.
What are the side effects observed with Bioresonance therapy?
Bioresonance is a regulatory method of treatment, similar to homoeopathy, acupuncture and physiotherapy. Medication triggers biochemical processes in the body at the material level. The effects on the various organs are mostly well-known and reproducible biochemically. It is possible to clearly distinguish between the desired therapeutic effects and the adverse side-effects.
With methods of regulatory therapy such as a bioresonance, the body is given an impulse to which it should react. The right impulse triggers a chain of biochemical reactions in the body which activate the organisms powers of self healing to take countermeasures against the cause of the disorder. An incorrect impulse has no or minimal effect. Consequently, if using the bioresonance method properly, it is difficult to do something completely wrong.
Side effects in the conversational medical sense have not so far being observed by bioresonance therapists. Adverse reactions following therapy may be initial exacerbation of primary immune responses. They are encountered in all methods of regulatory therapy.
An initial exacerbation is generally a sign that the therapy impulse was definitely the right one but the strength of the impulse was too intense. This leads to a temporary worsening of the symptoms, intensification of the pain or the skin eczema, for example. It can also happen that old symptoms from the past, from which the patient had apparently recovered, reappear. Sometimes teeth, which were chronically inflamed yet previously displayed no symptoms, also make their presence felt. If old foci flare up, this can give therapists important clues about hidden therapy blocks.
Reactions such as this in which the patient’s condition deteriorates usually subside within one or two days yet may last longer in individual cases. At the next treatment session the therapist will adapt the therapy according to the individual patients responsiveness. Constant over treatments can, in the worst case, lead to reaction blocks. But even these can generally be overcome with treatment to restore the energy balance.
It is not unusual therefore for the symptoms of chronic disorders not to improve continuously but rather for the patient’s condition to fluctuate somewhat at the start of the treatment. The therapist and the patient may need to be patient at this stage.
Patients with autoimmune disorders should be treated with care as they often have tendency to hyper intensive reactions. Patients should not be given bioresonance therapy during the first three months of pregnancy for forensic reasons.
If therapy fails to be successful, although not as a side effect, this can be problematical in certain cases. If a patient who is known to have violent reactions, e.g. asthma attacks or shock reactions, is treated for allergy, any exposure test should only be conducted under clinical conditions. No test, neither conventional medical nor energetic allergy test, can predict with a 100% certainty whether exposure to the allergen will cause a reaction in the patient or not. Emergency medication should continue to be carried as a precaution.
Can Bioresonance be used for all ailments and for every one?
There is no medical method in the world which will help everyone. Man is not a machine which runs according to technically reproducible rules. Every person is an individual and disease should be regarded as a largely multifactorial product of physical, psychological and social circumstances. Organs and tissue, which are completely destroyed or missing, cannot be restored by any method, not even bioresonance. Deficient enzymes, vitamins and nutrients must also be physically supplied. Applying a foods biophysical information to a patient will not satisfy their hunger! Provided responsive tissue is still president, an improvement can often be brought about in the patient’s condition through bioresonance. Oscillation patterns, which are superior to matter, will often produce an effect where chemical substances are no longer effective at the physical level.
Severe psychological trauma cannot be treated with bioresonance either. A difficult childhood, abuse, traumatic events and chronic frustration can cause or encourage illness or impede its treatment. The bioresonance device cannot change mother-in-laws or partners! There are also patients who derived benefit from their illness, usually subconsciously. While they are ill, they are guaranteed the affection and care of their partner and family. Or they have a reason not to have to go to work. There are patients who run from one therapist to another and try everything to continually receive confirmation that they are incurably ill.
When they feel that they are getting better, the therapy is discontinued with often-flimsy excuses. Patients who’ve applied for sickness related benefits are often untreatable.
You may have noticed through the content of this website that the word ‘cure’ is never used. Bioresonance can relieve the symptoms of many medical conditions or even make them disappear. Whether the patient is completely cured depends largely upon his mental attitude to the disorder and upon other psychological and social factors. Many therapists combine the bioresonance method with other conventional medical and naturopathic methods of therapy. A sensitive therapeutic discussion can often work wonders!
Experienced bioresonance therapists report an 80 to 90% success rate, depending on the patient group. One patient in nine or ten unfortunately cannot be helped. Every, otherwise good, practice has its share of failures. All therapists must learn to deal with this. For we aren’t ‘gods in white coats’. We should learn to except failure and concentrate on the success stories. The 80:20 rule is well known in economics. We spend 20% of our working time on 80% of our routine patients and 80% of our time on 20% of our difficult patients.
The reason for therapy failing may be an undiscovered or untreated physical or psychological therapy block. Or perhaps the right allergen or toxin that is responsible hasn’t been found? Or it may be that the therapist is not sufficiently experienced. We should not be afraid of referring the patient to another therapist. Patients and therapists not only enter into a treatment contract enshrined in law. The chemistry, or as we would now more accurately say, the vibes must be right.
To sum up, bioresonance is a method of diagnosing and treating patient’s, which provides a relief to very many disorders and can help restore the patient’s health.
