Pick up some good vibrations. Bioresonance therapy is a holistic treatment that tries to tackle the hidden causes of disease and illness by assessing and correcting energy imbalances within the body. The concept is based on the idea that all matter (whether living or not) electromagnetically resonates (or vibrates) at a specific frequency. Toxins and infections are said to disrupt the body’s normal resonation, causing it to adopt a different vibration pattern and altering the person’s behaviour and ability to interact with the world (possibly even leading to addiction and chronic illness). Yikes!
Most commonly used to help battle allergies and addictions (particularly nicotine), bioresonance therapy involves a process known as “phase cancellation” where special equipment is used to send electromagnetic vibrations through the patient’s body. The wave pattern of these vibrations is matched to the mirror image of the toxin present and so is said to reduce and eventually its electromagnetic charge. The immune system is then better able to deal with and eliminate the toxins from the body. The ‘memory’ and any residue of the substance are also removed and so smokers experience substantially reducing cravings.
If all that is still sounding a bit mind boggling, then think of the way that noise cancellation headphones work: when you slip on the headphones, the clever technology blocks out the electromagnetic frequencies of the external “noise”, allowing you to focus on the sound vibrations (dulcet tones, wild guitar or boy band, we won’t judge) pumping out of the cans into each ear.
The bioresonance machine itself is connected to the body using cables and large electrodes (that are usually held in the hands). After taking a reading of the body’s energy patterns at the start of the session, the toxic substances present can be identified by looking at the wave frequencies. The mirror pattern required to cancel out the toxins is then determined, the energy patterns are modified and sent back through the electrodes and into the body. This effectively jump-starts the body’s healing processes, allowing it to get on with fighting the offending substance itself.
Bioresonance therapy is painless and apparently the body only absorbs frequency patterns that it requires to restore its natural equilibrium (so there’s no chance you’ll be thrown off track by an unruly bioresonance buzz). The most people have reported feeling during treatment is a pleasant tingling sensation or a gentle pulse.
Those looking to give up smoking or free themselves from the bane of allergies may want to look into bioresonance therapy.
The success rate of the stop smoking therapy is 70% after the first treatment and 90% after the second treatment, but you are required to avoid alcohol, over the counter painkillers and caffeine in the days before your session so that your body is prepared for the stimulation of nicotine detoxification (and not preoccupied removing other toxins).
The only potential side effects of the treatment are those associated with any detoxification process: headaches, fatigue, a feeling of sluggishness, an upset stomach and a metallic taste in the mouth. Not everyone will experience them and they are unlikely to be severe. All in all, they are nothing to worry about and usually subside within a few days.
Bioresonance is not recommended for women who are in the first trimester of pregnancy and patients with a pacemaker should inform the treatment centre when booking an appointment and remind them on the treatment day that they are fitted with the device. The treatment can then be adapted without the use of a magnetic electrode, making it safe for people with a pacemaker.
Bioresonance therapy was originally developed the 1920s, but was officially launched as a treatment in 1977 by German physician Dr Franz Morell.
