Chronic inflammation and the significance of milieu regulation

Iris Fischer-Rahrs, Veterinary Surgeon, Steyerberg, Germany

A small, but important point to make before we start: Because I am a veterinary surgeon, this presentation comes under the heading of veterinary medicine. However, it relates not only to animals but also to basic research and medicine in general, and applies to both animals and humans alike.

I would like to briefly explain a bit about myself: I established my own practice in 1990 in a small village in Lower Saxony, halfway between Hanover and Bremen.
I predominantly treat dogs, but also horses and cats. I have been working with the BICOM® bioresonance method since 2007 and have acted as an overseas speaker for the company Regumed since 2009.
I now use the bioresonance method for more than 90% of cases in my practice.

I have been heavily involved in this particular field for some three years now as a result of a situation that affected me personally.
I quickly realised that chronic inflammations were not just of personal interest to me, but also of relevance to a number of colleagues too, and so I don’t want to delay any further in telling you what I have discovered about this area so far.

Chronic inflammations

Chronic inflammations are becoming increasingly more important within the field of medicine. It is not only the statistics that prove this: the number of chronic inflammatory disorders has risen sharply in recent decades and is still on the increase. This trend is particularly evident in industrialised countries, with chronic inflammations now recognised as a form of lifestyle disease. This can be explained in part by the way in which modern lifestyles contribute to prolonged stress, which, coupled with unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise, encourage inflammatory processes to take hold in the body. These deprive the body of vital energy in the same way that allergies and food intolerances do; this in turn depriving the body’s regulatory system of vital strength.


The symptoms are often non-specific. A chronic inflammation does not necessarily cause any symptoms, at least not to begin with, and therefore often remains undetected for a long period of time. Many sufferers feel healthy or do not consider certain disorders which point to a chronic inflammation as being of particular importance. Possible signs may range from depressive moods, joint pains, problems with concentration to forgetfulness, food intolerances or allergies, pressure and
ringing in the ears, shoulder-neck-head pain, tiredness in the morning, dizziness, numbness, insomnia, impaired vision or excessive irritability.

We now know that chronic inflammation is partly responsible for disorders such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, heart attacks, cancer, Crohn’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, neurodermatitis, Parkinson’s disease, strokes and psoriasis, i.e. more and more serious lifestyle diseases are being linked with chronic inflammation within the body in its various forms.

This applies to humans, but also of course to our pets.

Multiple causes

1) Exogenous causes
a) Microbes: viruses, bacteria, parasites, moulds
b) Allergens
c) Toxins
d) Heat and cold exposure
e) Mechanical irritation and force f) Radiation
g) Chemical aggressors

2) Endogenous causes:
a) Stress
b) Irritation in connective tissue, muscles, tissue and organs under both physiological and pathological stress
c) Toxic metabolic products
d) Cell debris and detached tissue fragments

Where microbes do not appear to be the cause, we also speak in terms of abacterial or aseptic inflammation.


Five cardinal symptoms of an acute inflammation:

  • Calor — Heat
  • Rubor — Redness
  • Tumor — Swelling
  • Dolor — Pain
  • Functio laesa — Impaired function

Although an inflammation can indeed become a threat to an individual, it will invariably occur as a natural method of limiting damage and restoring individuals to health as quickly as possible.

This applies both to acute and chronic inflammations. Chronic inflammations may develop from an acute inflammation, but may also be primarily chronic in nature.

The main feature of a chronic inflammation and the challenge it presents is that the exudation processes (healing) and proliferation processes (progression of the inflammation) take place simultaneously!
This then leads

to increased tissue swelling and pressure (tumour)

to disturbances in the microcirculation in the tissue, primarily also in the matrix area (contusion, in some cases suppression of nerves, lymph vessels, blood vessels, capillaries, congestion and obstructions in the energy pathways, impaired cell communication)

and ultimately:
to metabolic disorders in the cell.

From among the many possible causes of chronic inflammations, I believe that stress, and more specifically prolonged stress, caused by our unhealthy lifestyles and diet today and the unnatural conditions in which animals are kept as pets and the food that they are given, has the greatest impact, because prolonged stress invariably leads to tensions, not only in the muscular system, but also in the matrix area. If these tensions can no longer be overcome, permanent tensions arise which are not possible to remove at will, because they become habitual and reflexive in nature. This then leads to microcirculatory disturbances.

a) then have an easy way of embedding themselves in damaged tissue, and
b) are also used by the body to ‘digest’ damaged tissue.

Of all the permanent tensions, those in the neck and shoulder area are of greatest relevance, because all nerves and blood vessels go through this (often narrow) area: in short, all information that is sent to the body from the control centre in the head and vice versa. This creates a negative spiral which I have attempted to outline in simplified form in the following diagram. This diagram makes no claims to be scientifically correct!

From my own observations it would appear therefore that prolonged stress and metabolic dysfunction lie at the heart of chronic inflammations.

Luckily the BICOM® gives us a number of starting points and excellent options for intervening in, interrupting and even reversing this complex negative cycle.

Chronic inflammation and the significance of milieu regulation


I would now like to present to you the programs which I successfully use in my practice.

As a priority and in almost all cases I use one of my newly tested programs, which I have named ’tissue relaxation’. Since ca. 75% of cases in my practice test positive for this,
I now use it as standard for every chronic disorder and also for all allergy treatments.
I have observed that treatments, particularly in difficult cases, have a much quicker success rate.

‘Tissue relaxation’ program:
7.8 Hz, H+Di, wobble, H = 4.1 + Di = 2.0, symmetrical amplification sweep, 120 sec, 8 min
Input: Thymus and/or head
Output: Modulation mat in neck/shoulder region,
The roller applicator is also very good
IC: Blood and saliva
OC: Chip
Channel 2:Substance complex ‘overacidification’,
CU ampoules: connective tissue, muscles, intercellular tissue, 5-E element ampoule

7.83 Hz is the frequency for the hippocampus, which is part of the limbic system, for humans and mammals. It is also what is known as the Schumann frequency, a frequency upon which the well-being and life of humans and animals here on Earth depends. In the case of chronic inflammations this crucial frequency seems to be impaired. Interestingly, not only this frequency tests, but also the neighbouring frequencies (wobble) too at
ca. 6.9-8.8 Hz. If you refer to the therapy handbook, you will find the following:

6.9 Hz 3112.0 Problems in lower abdomen
7.4 Hz 3046.0 Problems in back of the head
7.4 Hz 3101.0 Heartburn
7.4 Hz 3107.0 Metabolic disorder
7.4 Hz 3109.0 Overacidification
7.6 Hz 3031.0 Circulatory regulation
7.8 Hz 3093.0 Shock treatment, acute
8.3 Hz 3016.0 Connective tissue impairment
8.4 Hz 3028.0 Problems with large intestine (metabolism)
8.4 Hz 3032.0 Circulatory disorders
8.5 Hz 3045.0 Cardiac pain, pulling
8.6 Hz 3057.0 Bone pain after accident
8.6 Hz 3079.0 Renal function impairment
8.7 Hz 3127.0 Duodenal problems

There is a relative abundance of programs in these frequency ranges, which certainly play a part in chronic inflammations.

Other programs I use for treating chronic inflammation:

1) ‘Stress’ after Dr S. Rauch:
H+Di, 4.3 Hz, wobble, symmetrical amplification sweep, H = 5.3 + Di = 1.1, Time 10 sec, 7 min
Channel 2: ‘stress’, ‘adrenal exhaustion’, ‘adrenal gland auto-immune’ from neurology, CTT ampoules ‘stress’, Bach flower remedies etc., 5-E element ampoule
2) Lymph programs: 930, 610, 3066
Channel 2: CTT ampoules lymph, activate lymph
3) Muscle program: 630
Channel 2: CU ampoules muscles, ligaments, tendons
5) Metabolic programs (after S. Karz, Fulda 2010)
a) Protein metabolism control (program series): 3107, 910, 518, 530, 3106
b) Phosphorus metabolism: 830
c) Nitrogen balance: H+Di, 89 Hz, H=4.7 + Di = 7.0, no wobble, interva1,12 min
d) Lipometabolism control (program series): 3084, 460, 520, 361, 3064 or
3038, 460, 520, 361, 250, 3064
e) Carbohydrate metabolism control (program series): 3107, 819, 992, 3064
f) Pancreatic juices control (program series): 852, 829, 3081, 935
g) General metabolism therapy: 10159 (3106, 3107, 530)
6) Microorganism control
a) 3013, 978, virus programs I and II after Dr Hennecke (25 kHz + 5.2 Hz)
b) CTT ampoules
Channel 2:CTT ampoule ‘strengthen immune system’ and CU elimination ampoules from the appropriate test sets
7) Toxin elimination: 3036, 970
Channel 2: CTT ampoule ‘impaired elimination’
8) Allergy treatment
9) Specific treatment of symptoms

Treatments: normally lx weekly, but you must definitely test!

A very good combination is often:
A) ‘Stress reduction’ after Dr S. Rauch (see above)
B) ‘Tissue relaxation’ (see above)
C) 1-2 lymph programs 3066, 930, 610
D)Muscle program 630 and/or overacidification 3009
E) General metabolism therapy 10159 (3106, 3107, 530)
and subsequently:
F) Microorganism control
a) Candida
b) Other relevant microorganisms

Milieu regulation

Just as important as treatment with the aforementioned programs, and what is effectively considered the second treatment pillar, is milieu regulation. The milieu surrounding the cells is of crucial importance for their ‘healthy’ metabolism. This milieu is always impaired where chronic inflammation is present.

Milieu regulation includes:
1) Removing overacidification of the tissue (always present) I treat this:
a) with program 3009
b) with the substance complex ‘overacidification’ or ‘acid-base balance’
c) with leeches or cupping (human, not carried out in my practice)
d) with medication
2) Stomach/intestinal milieu recovery
3) Extensive detoxication and opening/stabilisation of elimination organs 4) Change in animal feed/diet
4) Change in animal feed/diet
The denatured, processed animal feed invariably used nowadays is a major contributory factor in the rapid rise in chronic disorders and inflammations. Often a variety of animal feed/dietary supplements are also added based on an owner’s own judgement of what is needed. This feed/nourishment has very little to do with the physiology of digestion/metabolism. To simplify this, and leaving aside any consideration of the differences between animal species, when changing diet it is important either to refrain from or to considerably reduce sugar in the feed, including molasses and cereal (wheat). The same principle also applies of course to the human diet.
5) Targeted vitamin/trace element/mineral supplements after testing
6) Looking after different species according to their specific needs, regular exercise

Support for milieu regulation is also provided through medication/supplementary foodstuffs, e.g. R+ lactic acid (Rechtsregulat), sodium bicarbonate, EM (Electrophoretic mobility test)
microorganisms, healing fungi, Sanum preparations and other medication, orally and in channel 2.

Case study

Golden Retriever bitch, born 2003, neutered 2007, regularly inoculated, dewormed and treated for fleas/ticks.The owner came to my practice for the first time in mid-201 1, having spent a considerable amount of time moving from one vet to another. The dog presented increasingly with varying lameness at the front and back. The x-rays were normal, but showed the onset of spondylosis in the lumbar spine. A colleague had treated her in 2009 with gold bead implants, after which time there had been no improvement and instead a further deterioration. The animal was also suffering from recurring otitis (both ears) and occasional diarrhoea. She had therefore been given multiple courses of antibiotics. Ear drops were prescribed effectively as a long-term medication.
As well as that, she was given diet feed (prescribed by the veterinary surgeon) and the owner also fed her various food supplements based on her own internet research, working on the basis of ‘the more the better’. The lameness was treated at intervals; if it became too bad, it was treated with NSAIDs¹. As well as this, she was taken every two weeks to a physiotherapist. She believed this helped more than anything else.

I subsequently found out that the dog was
a) allergic to wheat, lamb, chicken, fleas/ticks, grass pollen, sheep’s wool and gold
b) tested positive for borrelia, staphylococcus and candida, although several laboratory tests had always tested negative for borrelia.

I subsequently treated her with the BICOM® and had some success in that the lameness and diarrhoea completely disappeared, however the dog still experienced occasional recurring mild otitis. The owner had since moved and confirmed that she was happy to leave it at that. I did not hear anything further for around two years.

In late summer 2014 I then received a desperate phone call: the dog had high- grade purulent otitis externa, which appeared to be resistant to treatment by the usual means and her veterinary surgeon had advised an operation.

When she came to me in the practice the general well-being of the dog was also impaired: low-grade lopsidedness on right hand side of the head with continuous head-shaking and chafing, right ear moderately painful, significant loss of appetite. The right external auditory canal displayed high-grade inflammation and swelling, with a large quantity of yellowy- white exudate. The eardrum was not accessible. The left auditory canal displayed high-grade redness with a small quantity of exudate, but wasn’t painful. The owner
reported that everything had escalated since the dog had started regularly bathing in a nearby pond.

I tested again. The borrelia still tested negative, but gold tested positive again, plus e-smog, staphylococcus, pseudomonas.

This time I used my new treatment program:

1st treatment:
a) Basic therapy, 5 min
Channel 2: CTT ampoules water, liver, ear
b) E-smog 701
Channel 2: as before
c) Tissue relaxation
Channel 2: overacidification
d) Lymph activation 3066
Channel 2: C7 ampoule ‘activate lymph’
e) Threefold application:
3013 + 978 (stress from pathogens), 3036 (regulate detoxication)
Channel 2: CTT ampoules ‘strengthen immune system’ + CTT elimination ampoules bacteria (after test)
S: chip
OC: small bottle with ear cleanser (lactic acid, acetylsalicylic acid)
The result was amazing: the owner phoned to report that the general well- being of the dog had already improved vastly as soon as they returned home, that the ear was dry on the outside after two days and the head-shaking/chafing had stopped.

2nd treatment (one week later):
Auditory canal left ok, right still reddened but dry
a) Basic therapy, 5 min
Channel 2: CU ampoules water, liver, ear
b) Tissue relaxation
Channel 2: overacidification
c) Lymph activation 930
Channel 2: CTT ampoule ‘activate lymph’
d) Colon treatment after Dr Rauch

3rd treatment (one week later):
Auditory canal right displayed high-grade redness
a) Basic therapy, 5 min
Channel 2: CTT ampoule ear
b) Tissue relaxation
Channel 2: overacidification
c) Individual frequency testing and therapy gold
d) Toxin elimination 970
Channel 2: CTT ampoules ‘impaired elimination’, ‘intracellular tissue’
e) Detoxication, general 10046 (430, 480, 930)
Channel 2: C7 ampoules liver, kidney, lymph

The dog has had no further problems since then. Check-ups are arranged at regular intervals because there is still gold in the body.

Thank you for your attention and I hope that my presentation has thrown a little more light on the complex area of chronic inflammations and can be of practical assistance to you in your work.
