The Basics of Bioresonance

It’s been proven to identify disease, help chronic illnesses, ease food intolerances, manage addiction and more; but what exactly is bioresonance? Journalist, qualified psychotherapist and consecutive MIND Media Award-winner, Kate Whitehead investigates.

As an alternative therapy that can heal you from inside out, there is no doubt that bioresonance has been gaining in popularity in the last ten years – prior to that, there were only a couple of clinics in Hong Kong offering this type of treatment versus more than 20, now. But how exactly does this non-invasive therapy work, and more importantly, what can it help with?

The Science

Bioresonance works on the principle that we are energetic beings. All the cells in our body vibrate at a specific frequency, with each emitting its own unique electromagnetic wave, with a healthy body or cell resonating at a regular wavelength. When we are stressed – perhaps due to poor nutrition, toxins from medication, or the physical or psychological stress of negative emotions – those healthy electromagnetic currents are disturbed, and can become irregular.

A bioresonance machine measures the biomagnetic field or frequencies of an individual’s body, thus identifying the sources of any disturbances, before emitting a counter-balancing frequency to restore their energetic equilibrium. You can also consider the body to be like a unique musical instrument; where each cell or organ is an individual string that plays a specific note. When the body is unhealthy, that instrument is out of tune.

“The bioresonance machine works like a tuning fork. By creating a matching note for each of the strings, it retunes the inharmonious frequencies,” says Peter Brodendal, founder of Waveworks in Central.

Brodendal, a Swedish health practitioner who trained in Sweden and Germany, says he sees positive results in clients who come to see him for gut-related issues, allergies, skin problems (such as eczema, sclerosis and hives) and any ailments that are inflammation-related.

“With bioresonance, we are working from the inside out. So much of the immune system is related to the gut and that’s often where we start,” says Brodendal.

The treatment begins with an initial assessment to diagnose the underlying root cause of an issue. The client lays on an electromagnetic mat that covers their spine and the Bicom bioresonance machine is then used to help harmonise the body. Alongside this, Brodendal will give recommendations on diet and lifestyle habits, and may suggest natural supplements.

“The clients who see the fastest results are those who get involved. If you ignore the advice about what to eat and not to eat, the Bicom machine will still work – but it will take longer to see results,” says Brodendal.

Applications of Bioresonance

When Seraphine Iskandar discovered she was gluten intolerant about 10 years ago, she was relieved to have found the cause of her health challenges, and banished gluten from her diet. But while a gluten-free diet was manageable at home, it made socialising difficult. Increasingly, she found it difficult to have meals out without showing symptoms such as stomach cramping, bloating and fatigue.

“I felt my body had become over-sensitive to even a trace amount of gluten, which was limiting,” she says. In 2017, she went to Waveworks, and the initial assessment immediately picked up issues with her digestive system. After six months of almost weekly sessions – “I’d just lie down and take a nap or rest for an hour while I received the treatment” – she began to see improvements. “I was able to eat small amounts of food [containing gluten] without getting symptoms. It was really quite liberating. And three years on, the effect is ongoing,” says Iskandar.

For many smokers, the commitment to finally quit cigarettes often tops their New Year’s resolution list. If you have a friend making that pledge on December 31, you might want to suggest bioresonance.

“Three sessions are usually enough. I’ve had some clients who after just the first session don’t want to touch a cigarette again,” says Brodendal. Before the first session, the smoker will be asked to have their last puff and bring the end of that cigarette and some ash to his or her appointment. That material will then be used in the first bioresonance session.

Pet Therapy

Humans aren’t the only ones to benefit from bioresonance. Animals are also energetic beings and the system works just as well on them.

“The pet is usually a little wary at the first session, but after that they usually love the treatment and will often jump onto the mat themselves because they sense the frequency and feel its healing them,” says Brodendal.

Monica Wong practices at Waveworks and is one of the first therapists in Hong Kong to be certified as a Bioresonance Veterinary Practitioner. She specialises in post-surgical recovery, pain management, arthritic pain and skin allergies for pets.

Disease Prevention

Increasingly, bioresonance is used as a preventative tool to detect potential diseases as soon as they start to develop, and can help avoid the progression of diseases. LifeHub, a medical wellness centre in Central, uses the bioresonance machine as a preliminary scan.

“We combine bioresonance with functional medicine. If it points to a health issue, such as a thyroid or gut issue, we ask about symptoms, and then do a lab test if necessary,” says LifeHub co-founder Candice Chan.

She says the clinic has seen good results using bioresonance on clients with chronic inflammation, eczema, allergies, ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and autism.

“Often, with autism, we also see very high heavy metals or a lack of certain minerals, and then use the machine to [help with] detox,” says Chan.

Lifestyle Planning

The Bicom machine is also effective at detecting which foods you are intolerant of and which ones are beneficial for your body. For example, I am using the therapy to create a healthy diet plan for 2021. After using the Bicom machine to test my body’s reaction to various foods such as my homemade daal, which got the thumbs up, I’ve worked out which to avoid – wheat, gluten, crabs, Brazil nuts – as well as what my personal superfoods are – prunes, ginger, sweet potato. It’s been a fun exercise that has made me rethink my food choices, and to try some incorporating some new foods into my weekly meal plan. If you’re looking for a little punch to kickstart a new year health regime, it could be just the ticket.

But, buyer beware. Bioresonance can’t be expected to be an absolute cure-all. If you are seriously ill – or believe you have a medical condition – then your first port of call must be your GP. But if you are looking for an alternative treatment to do alongside traditional medicine, then bioresonance is an excellent complement. It’s non-invasive, won’t interfere with other treatments and has a great track record of picking up health issues before they become severe.
