If you are into holistic and complementary medicine, it is highly likely that you have heard of bioresonance therapy.
But what is bioresonance therapy exactly? In a nutshell, bioresonance therapy is a type of therapy that is used in complementary or holistic medicine. Bioresonance therapy makes use of a machine to measure the frequency of the energy wavelengths generated by the body. The measures are then used to diagnose illnesses.
How Bioresonance Therapy Works
Now that you have an idea what bioresonance therapy is, let us cover how it works. Bioresonance therapy banks on a simple idea: that unhealthy organs or cells end up emitting altered electromagnetic waves because of DNA damage.
Advocates of bioresonance therapy believe that detection of the waves can be used to diagnose disease. Furthermore, proponents of bioresonance believe that changing the waves back to their normal frequency can treat the condition.
During bioresonance therapy, electrodes are placed on the skin. The electrodes are hooked up to a machine that will read the energy wavelengths emitted by the body. This is also the process of diagnosing the condition.
From there, the energy frequencies are manipulated by the machine. This is done to allow the cells in the body to vibrate at their “natural frequency.” This process is believed to treat the condition.
What Bioresonance Therapy is For
Bioresonance therapy is used to diagnose and treat several health conditions, including:
- Stomach pain
- Overtraining syndrome
- Smoking cessation
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Allergies (and other related conditions like asthma and eczema)
Bioresonance Therapy Studies
While research on bioresonance therapy is limited, there are certain studies related to its use that has been conducted. For instance:
A study indicated that bioresonance therapy was beneficial in reducing stomach pain that is not associated with any specific diagnosis.
A 2014 study compared bioresonance therapy for smoking cessation to a placebo. The study indicated that a staggering 77.2% of the individuals in the bioresonance group gave up smoking just a week after therapy versus only 54.8% in the placebo group.
The study also revealed that after a year of treatment, 28.6% of those in the bioresonance group had stopped completely versus only 16.1% in the placebo group.
Some bioresonance therapy users believe the treatment can activate tumor suppressor genes. It is also believed to “kill” cancer by minimizing the effects of overactive cells.
Few studies suggest that bioresonance therapy might be effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis. It is believed that bioresonance therapy treats the condition by normalizing how the antioxidants function within the human body.
The antioxidants fight the free radicals and minimize tissue damage in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis.
A study compared the effectiveness of using manual therapy, point therapy, and bioresonance therapy in the treatment of fibromyalgia versus manual and point therapy without bioresonance therapy.
While both groups saw significant improvements, the study also noticed a 72% improvement in muscular pain for individuals who were given bioresonance therapy versus only 37% improvement for the other group.
Dramatic improvements in sleep issues and sensitivity to weather changes were also found in individuals given bioresonance therapy.
Overtraining syndrome in athletes
Also known as burnout, overtraining syndrome develops when athletes don’t fully recover from training and competition. Overtraining syndrome may also lead to:
- Sleep disturbances
- Frequent injuries
- Mood changes
- Changes in the resting heart rate
Another study focused on how bioresonance therapy can help treat overtraining syndrome. They found out that:
Bioresonance therapy can bring the blood pressure and heart rate back to normal
Bioresonance therapy can calm the sympathetic nervous system (the body’s fight or flight response)
Side Effects and Risks
To date, no studies have indicated that bioresonance therapy has any side effects. Generally, bioresonance therapy is considered a painless procedure.
