Why haven't I heard of bioresonance before?
Since its inception in the 1970’s and 1980’s, bioresonance has been used widely in Europe by medical practitioners, vets, dentists and naturopaths. It has been recently introduced into Russia and Chinese hospitals. Elsewhere, it is used mainly by naturopaths and alternative practitioners.
Despites its longevity, part of the reason that bioresonance is not better known is that most medical research is commissioned by drug companies. Because bioresonance does not involve drugs, it is less researched.
Does bioresonance work for every condition?
Bioresonance can assist with the function of any organ or system. This includes metabolism, the digestive, immune, endocrine (hormone), nervous, respiratory, musculoskeletal, circulatory (and cardiovascular) and urologoical systems.
So to summarise, bioresonance gives strength and support to all organs and systems of the body, so yes bioresonance may assist many conditions.
Can bioresonance reverse disease?
You may have noticed through the content of this website that the word ‘cure’ is never used. Bioresonance may relieve the symptoms of many conditions and promote balance and self-healing.
While assisting the function of any cells or tissues in the body, bioresonance cannot rejuvinate tissue that has died. This means, for example, that once the islet cells of the pancreas have died, the resulting diabetes cannot be reversed. Similarly, with conditions where nervous tissue has been destroyed (as see in multiple sclerosis), the disease process can be slowed or perhaps even halted, but previous damage will remain.
With any condition, it is not possible to know ahead of time how much of the symptoms are due to malfunction and how much to damage. Therefore, no one can know in advance how much improvement is possible.
Are there any side effects?
Studies of the efficacy of bioresonance have found no side effects. This is because before delivering a therapy program, practitioners assess if the program will benefit your body. Rarely (and almost exclusively in the case of auto-immune conditions), there may be a ‘crisis of healing’ in which the symptoms may worsen temporarily following a therapy session (with no lasting negative effects). This indicates that the therapy, while correct, may have been too intense. Even this is unlikely, however, with an experienced practitioner.
Lastly, following a detoxification programme, if the patient is dehydrated and does not drink the recommended amount following theray, a temporary headache may occasionally result.
How many therapy sessions will I need?
A course of therapy sessions varies from person to person depending on the underlying health of a person and takes into account such factors as the stage of the pathological process, the severity/complexity of your condition, your age, how close together your therapy sessions occur, what other strategies you use to support yourself (e.g. diet, exercise, nutritional supplements and herbs) and what other stressors may be affecting your body (e.g. emotional stress).
The higher the toxicity and lower the energy in the body, the more sessions may be required to properly support the body’s recovery processes. An important concept to consider in chronic illness is that of an accumulated total body load of metabolic wastes, bio-toxins, pathogen and environmental loading.
A lifetime of exposure to the toxins from modern society can cause a great deal of debilitation and can impact the body’s defenses, resiliency and regenerative capacity.
Three to eight therapy sessions are recommended, initially, depending on the individual’s needs.
How often will I need therapy?
For any fresh injury or acute symptoms, the therapy may be recommended at regular intervals, ideally on a daily basis, or every couple of days. For chronic conditions, therapy is given once a week to fortnightly initially.
So, generally, therapy sessions are recommended every 2-3 days or weekly for chronic issues, until change is experienced.
What does it feel like?
Usually no sensations are experienced during therapy. However, some clients may be aware of a slight warm or tingly feeling.
How is Bioresonance applied?
Therapy is applied through the use of therapy mats applied to different locations on the body, and may involve the placement of hands or feet onto brass plates. Application of the mats vary with the programs are being run, and what is being dealt with.
- Throughout the course of therapy, drink plenty of water (1.5 to 2 litres per day – preferably purified, alkaline/low mineral water, or at least filtered water.) Don’t drink with food, drink ½-1 hour before meals, and 1-1 ½ hours after.
- Avoid coffee and alcohol for at least six hours before treatment, and after. These are highly acidic and can obstruct the healing process, so the less you have the better
- Minimise sugar – this damages the intestinal bacteria and creates favourable conditions for many intestinal diseases. Cut down or eliminate grains, especially wheat, increasing your intake of vegetables at each meal.
- After therapy the body will be adjusting to a new state. Fatigue after therapy, chills, warmth, aching, or an increase in minor sweating are common responses to the therapy and should pass shortly after treatment. This is significantly minimised by following the above recommendations, specifically drinking water. On the rare occasion, if you feel significant exacerbation of pain or discomfort following therapy, you may need a short top-up therapy session to move through an incomplete process.
- Rest if you are tired and avoid over-exertion. We want the energy generated through the therapy to be used for detoxification and repair processes, so a strenuous bike ride or shopping for example, would divert energy from this to the fuelling the muscles.
- Keep a record of how you feel between sessions and bring it with you to your next visit
Integrative Lag Time
After therapy, the body moves into a state of transition, where the input energies are being integrated and change is being initiated. While many people feel immediate results after a session, noting more energy, improved sleep, clearer thinking and a lessening of symptoms such as pain, other people need more time for their ‘tipping point’ to be achieved.
More chronic conditions tend to need longer for change to be noticeable. This depends on the chronicity of the condition, and how far away from optimal your body has moved. Consider the 3-5 days after a session to be your post-therapy bubble/high. Record what you notice, go slow and be gentle with yourself.
If there is a greater buildup of wastes to eliminate, your body will need more energy to clear them. If your energy is engaged in physiological processes, you may feel more tired or sleepy initially, before your energy can rise as energy accumulates. Be mindful to care for your body – rest more, stress less, exercise gently, eat well and be kind to yourself. Any detox symptoms will soon pass.
If you feel you are experiencing an aggravation, come back and have another session, we may need to move you further along, passed the remaining blocks to move you through to the ‘other side’ sooner.
What about my conventional medical treatment?
Bioresonance therapy does not require you to stop your conventional medical treatment or any medication you are taking. It is important that all changes in medication are undertaken with the supervision of your doctor or naturopath.
Do I have to abstain from certain foods?
During Bioresonance therapy, you may be advised to abstain from certain foods to allow your body to heal. These may include the major allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs and soy; as well as caffeine and alcohol. The length of time that you will have to abstain will depend on the damage already done to your body and its rate of healing. For example, cells that line the small intestine can take six months to repair.
After a therapy session, intolerances are likely to be eliminated. However, your readiness to develop an intolerance suggests that you should be careful in future not to overload your system with daily intake. Allergies (that is, when you produce antibodies towards a particular food) can be calmed, but elimination is unlikely. It would be wise to avoid your allergens in the main. Nevertheless, your reactions will be reduced which means that you will be able to tolerate occasional exposure. In the case of anaphylaxis, however, you should be cleared by medical testing if you plan to expose yourself to your trigger.
Is bioresonance of benefit to children?
The therapy time children is usually quicker than for adults because in their shorter lifetime they have been exposed to fewer noxious influences. However, as for adults, if their nervous system or skin is involved, treatment can be prolonged.
BICOM® Bioresonance Therapy (BRT) is a non-invasive, gentle therapy suitable for children, babies and even the most sensitive patients.
Can I have bioresonance therapy if I have a pacemaker?
Yes you can. The practitioner must not place any electrodes near the pacemaker, and electrode placement is to be a slight distance from the implant.
Can I have bioresonance therapy if I have metal implants?
Yes you can. The practitioner must not place any electrodes near the implant, and electrode placement is to be a slight distance from the implant.
Can I have bioresonance therapy if I am pregnant?
It is not recommended to be treated in the first three months of pregnancy – this is a precaution only.
Why do standard and bioresonance test results differ?
Bioresonance testing is far more sensitive than conventional tests. As a result, it can show (for example) that the signals from your liver are weak. This does mean that you have a liver disease, because disrupted signals precede any changes in the chemistry of tissues. Therefore, conventional testing might report that your liver is in good health because no disease process is present, yet, whereas bioresonance will indicate a problem. But this is ‘sub-clinical’.
With scratch testing for allergies, when the body is systemically inflamed, it will react to many of the tested substances. As a result, compared with bioresonance testing, scratch tests can over-state the number of allergens that a problem for you.
As for blood tests for allergies, these detect only the presence of antibodies when the majority of reactions to foods are due either to maldigestion or intolerance, which involve histamine rather than antibodies. This will not show up in a blood test.
When doctors order blood test for viruses, they have to specific which virus the laboratory must scan for. In contrast, bioresonance will test for multiple viruses (limited only by the extensiveness of the practitioner’s test kit). Therefore it might identify the negative influence of many more pathogens than standard testing would discover.
Moreover, most blood tests for hormones measure free circulating hormones, which might represent only 1 percent of the forms within the body. Timing of tests is also important, because many hormones such as cortisol are supposed to fluctuate throughout the day and is responsive to your daily activities.
Finally in blood tests, most hormones have such a wide range that is considered to be normal, that your own levels could have halved (which for you is a problem) but still within the normal range. In that event, your medical practitioner will tell you that you are fine, whereas bioresonance testing will confirm your own sense of malaise.
How successful is this therapy?
Experienced bioresonance therapists report an 80 to 90% improvement in symptoms, depending on the patient group. One patient in nine or ten unfortunately cannot be helped. The reason for therapy failing may be an undiscovered or untreated physical or psychological therapy block (which is why I also integrate other tools and therapies: nutrition, herbal medicine and detoxification methods to help release and clear such blocks).
