WHAT IS ENERGY THERAPY?
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 in a holistic way, to allow the body to be supported through healing.
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.
HOW WAS ENERGY THERAPY DEVELOPED?
Energy 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.
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.
HOW WELL TOLERATED IS ENERGY THERAPY?
Fewer and fewer patients are prepared to just take a pill when they feel unwell, and People who are careful about 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. A holistic approach can produce results not experienced when just treating symptoms.
In the vast majority of cases Energy Therapy is very well tolerated. It has been applied to a wide range of people, from babies to mature adults, for over 25 years.
WHY DOESN’T CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE CURRENTLY RECOGNISE ENERGY THERAPY?
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.
So 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 and 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.
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.
