Markus Grunefeld, Naturopath, Monheim, Germany
I too would like to warmly welcome you to the 49th International BICOM® Congress in Fulda and share with you a few of my own experiences.
My presentation deals with BICOM® therapy in paediatric practice. Treatment success rates, indications and particular features of therapy as well as some instructions for administering therapy to young and older children is explained here in more detail. These observations are based on 7 years of experience and general use of bioresonance therapy in my practice. The naturopathic practice for children in Monheim am Rhein is one of the few services provided in Germany offering complementary naturopathy carried out by naturopaths in the area of paediatric medicine.
I will briefly give you some data and facts on bioresonance therapy from my daily practice.
From a core patient base of around 1,100 children at present, some 79% are treated with bioresonance therapy in my practice. I would describe 94% as therapeutic successes, of which 83% no longer display symptoms and a further 12% have experienced a significant improvement in their symptoms. In 4.5% of cases there was a slight improvement and 0.5% experienced no change in their condition.
The most common indications found here are allergies and intolerances. Allergies to pollen from flowers, grass and foliage are particularly prevalent, closely followed by food intolerances to cow’s milk, lactose and wheat as well as associated gluten/gliadin intolerances.
A further, very interesting field of application is BICOM® technology used on cry-babies and colicky babies. In this particular instance breastfeeding babies often cannot “tolerate” the mother’s milk, which means that, for example, there is an existing dairy or lactose intolerance in the mother, which has also been passed on to the child. Treating the mother is extremely effective in this case and it is then possible to continue breastfeeding.
A further trigger mechanism is the KISS syndrome (KISS = kinematic imbalances due to suboccipital strain).
This disorder can be cleared up effectively with chiropractic measures. BICOM® therapy is, however, also effective as a concomitant therapy to treat pain and to manipulate the muscles.
In terms of problems falling asleep and sleeping through it is also shown that there are stresses and intolerances present in those babies affected.
BICOM® therapy can also be used for children with ADS and ADHS or simply a hyperkinetic disorder, who I often describe as “children with ants in their pants and a head full of fluff.” Many of these children have deficiency symptoms, intolerances and additional stresses which may influence the proper functioning of the immune system. BICOM® therapy on its own can often reduce a child’s symptoms to a minimum. Lack of concentration, hyperactive behaviour or daydreaming are reduced or cease altogether, the patients can be reintegrated into a mainstream school and no longer display symptoms of the socially maladjusted behaviour so often present in the past.
Bacterial and viral stresses can also be appropriately tested and treated.
It is easy to test for deficiency symptoms, particularly those involving vitamins, minerals or trace elements, but also hormones and amino acids too. Treatment involves administering individual and combined preparations based on orthomolecular food supplements.
BICOM® therapy as a treatment for chronic and acute painful conditions is also a very rewarding part of my work. Children suffering from acute pain, for example following an accident or due to blockages in the spinal column, can be treated quickly to relieve the pain or make it more tolerable.
The most commonly occurring stresses in my practice include otitis, with and without inflammation of the middle ear, as well as
the phenomenon of warts, both molluscum lesions (molluscum contagiosum) and, less commonly, verrucas. Warts can be successfully treated with the “warts” program stored in the device and also with programs to strengthen resistance. Otitides are treated with the finger applicator in the affected ear and the associated programs. I have not made any change to the programs apart from possibly reducing the duration.
In order to clarify exactly what is different in “my” BICOM® therapy, I would like to explain a few terms to you.
For children it is not important what type of therapy is carried out, how it works or if it is scientifically proven. What is important for them is whether it hurts and often they ask how long it will take. Because imagination plays such a big part in children’s lives, I incorporate the correct way to behave during and after therapy into a kind of fairytale, where the BICOM® is known simply as the “magic machine.”
For my patients it is important to observe exactly what is happening around them. This is why “treatment predominantly when sitting” is necessary, since a lying position for children and babies is always seen and internalised as a predominantly negative position in the sense of “being at someone’s mercy.” My patients sit, as is proper, on their throne (in a large, comfy, blue leather chair.)
I talk about the “antenna” and the “golden” balls, for the tensor and applicators also have a role to play in my “fairytale.”
In order to make therapy more comfortable and to get the children to keep their hands free e.g. from cuddling their favourite soft toy, playing or reading, I use “sock applicators.” This simply involves placing the ball or stylus applicators, depending on the age and size of the child, in socks, in order to create the necessary skin contact. I first start EAV testing on children from the age of 5-6 in order to ensure pinpoint accuracy and to have results that can be reproduced.
For babies that have only been breastfed from day 1 and, for example, where there is an established dairy and/or lactose intolerance in the mother too, the “child through mother therapy” is carried out, meaning that I treat the mother with the child in her arms and instruct the mother how to eat to overcome the intolerance. This has proven to be a great success. “Chip instead of minerals or oil” means that chips are almost always used on their own to support BICOM® therapy, for kids see this special “belly button” as something cool, and as a rule I use globules concomitantly, as opposed to liquid medicines. I don’t use drops that often, if at all, when treating children and I only use oil in very rare cases to treat particular skin conditions.
“Modified” BICOM® therapy.
“Children are not small adults”
Shorter therapy times for children and often individual program combinations mostly result in “quick” successes. This fascinates children, amazes and eventually convinces parents and grandparents and thus creates a worthwhile multiplication effect, which through word of mouth can lead to high numbers of patients entering the practice. As a result, the practice does not need to spend a great deal of time and effort on costly advertising.
