Bleeding tendency_p.[2ph’ylaxis with Konakion®
“We were looking forward to the baby so much and now …”
More and more often we see new parents complaining about problems with their baby soon after birth. Loud wailing from late afternoon until the early hours, thick cradle cap on their heads plus skin rashes which many paediatricians put down to new-born acne which they’ll grow out of. Flatulence and stomach cramps dismissed as 3-month colic, with parents told to just get on with it …
But my experience of daily practice would suggest that the factors involved here are quite different.
Many of these young ones react to the synthetic Vitamin K, Konakion®, which is given in Germany as prophylaxis against blood clotting disorders and is administered during post-natal checks immediately after birth, after one week and then again after
Forms of therapy such as homoeopathy, acupuncture and bioresonance too are based on the knowledge that above the biochemical-structural level every organism has a biophysical/energetic level of function through which the organism regulates itself. All substances are made up of a combination of structure and information. When substances are introduced into the organism, whether in the form of food, toxin or medication, not only the actual biochemical material substance but also the biophysical energetic information is
introduced. This biophysical information
also has an effect on the energetic regulation mechanisms of the organism and can energetically disturb otherwise “soundly” functioning processes. The result may sometimes be biochemical structural changes and adverse reactions from the orgamsm.
So young babies may be reacting to the “Konakion” information. In biochemical terms any possible disturbance in coagulation is combated, but biophysically the information from this medication acts in such a way that bowel function is disturbed. This results in spasms of the intestine and flatulence. With energetic testing we detect an allergy to the information from ‘cow’s milk’ and this allergy then manifests itself as cradle cap, infantile acne and intestinal functional disorders.
In no way can such phenomena be described as “normal development”.
The whole symptom set can often be alleviated if the mother and child both avoid cow’s milk completely. In the past
I have treated such cases of milk allergy using bioresonance therapy. However, it has since been discovered that it is better
to eliminate the Konakion® as if it were a
toxin -either using program 998, 970,
430 or with the two Vitamin K metabolism stages 823 and 549 (test individually, and check necessary therapy time too). Once this is done, the milk allergy usually disappears completely of its own accord.
If bioresonance therapy is given after the last administration of Konakion® (during
the third post-natal check at 4-6 weeks), then normally only a single therapy is needed. Parents often find they can’t sleep the next night because their baby isn’t crying … Flatulence and spasms from colic are gone! Infantile acne too disappears within an amazingly short space of time (1- 2 days).
When, whether and how a baby should be immunised is the subject of ongoing lively discussion among therapists, with some considerable hardening of attitudes as well as changing recommendations in recent years from the German Standing Vaccination Committee (STIKO). I do not wish to get involved here in this debate on health policy. Insofar as clinical circumstances do not preclude a choice, the final responsibility for a decision about vaccination must be left with parents.
According to STIKO’s recommendations standard immunisation against seven diseases should begin at the age of two months with in each case 3 vaccinations up to 4 months of age followed by a fourth and final vaccination at 11 – 14 months. These diseases are tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, haemophilus influenzae B, polio, hepatitis B and pneumococci. Between 11 and 23 months babies are given additional vaccinations against measles, mumps, rubella and varicella.
As vaccines have developed efforts have been made to incorporate as many vaccines as possible into one combined vaccine (six fold immunisation since 2000). This means fewer injections for the child and less exposure to stress from the range of adjuvants and excipients contained in each vaccine. On the other hand, this can give rise to unforeseen interactions between the individual vaccines resulting in unexpected reactions to the vaccine. The formation of antibodies is also often lower with the combined immunisation than with the single vaccines. Nowadays, however, many vaccines are hard to come by as single preparations.
As well as having to cope with the vaccine itself, the body also has to deal with stresses caused by the adjuvants contained in it (Source: Dr. Steffen Robe,Munich: www.impf-info.de: Contributions to an informed decision on vaccination, 2009). Numerous vaccines contain aluminium hydroxide or aluminium phosphate and frequently formaldehyde, neomycin or streptomycin are added. One vaccine against Hepatitis B contains the mercury compound thimerosal. These substances already have a considerably disturbing action in terms of their chemical/structural impact on the child’s organism. When you consider the body’s connective tissue as an homogeneous, information-conducting organ, then it becomes clear that vaccinations and the adjuvants introduced with them can have major harmful effects on the biophysical energy control mechanisms of the organism too.
The organism can be prepared in advance for a forthcoming immunisation using programs 991.2 or 990.0. As a general therapy for vaccine stress, the thymus activation program (428.1) is suitable. The BICOM® BICOM optima® firmly integrates vaccination support in the substance complexes under “other pathogens” and with serial program
10075 “correcting post-vaccinal complications” supports general immunity and coping with the immunisation experience (by a low deep frequency program for treating shock). But elimination of the specific vaccine can be helpful here too in restoring properly functioning self regulation (used vaccination ampoule to be brought along if possible as a nosode) by applying bioresonance therapy and individually tested detoxification, immunity or metabolism programs (e.g. 998, 970,
430, 480, 930). Bioresonance therapy is effective even in cases where a vaccine stress highlighted by testing is in fact the result of a much earlier immunisation.
The low deep frequency program 3123.0 is available especially as a follow-up treatment for the tick inoculation (TBE vaccination with
possible stress from the adjuvants aluminium hydroxide, formaldehyde, genta and neomycin).
Poisonous substances found in the home and food additives
a) Poisonous substances found in the home
Health problems due to poisonous substances found in the home are wide ranging and vary greatly from one individual substance to another, which often makes it difficult to identify the cause. Acute poisoning is rare and may be identified from blood or urine tests. More often, though, the body suffers from chronic forms of stress (accumulation of harmful substances in fatty tissue, scarcely identifiable in clinical terms) and reads with non-specific symptoms of disease such as irritation of the mucous membrane and eye problems, headaches, nervousness, memory and concentration problems, sleeplessness, dazed state, chronic fatigue, dizziness, tinnitus, chronic sinusitis, allergic hay fever, skin rashes, hair loss, asthmatic symptoms, lowered resistance, liver damage, kidney and gastrointestinal complaints with vomiting.
These harmful substances can often be detected by chemical analysis. Volatile pollutants such as aldehyde, solvents or constituents of vehicle fuels can be measured directly in ambient air (Draeger), suspected exposure to wood protectors, pyrethroids, PCB or softeners can be verified by an analysis of house dust, and mould can now even be traced using specially trained dogs.
Where the concentration of harmful substances remains below chemical
detection limits, energetic testing can help (biotensor, kinesiology). The most significant poisonous substances found in the home (formaldehyde, various wood protectors, PCB mix, pentachlorophenol, moulds) can be tested energetically and then treated with bioresonance therapy using the “Identification test set”. Also milder exposure to unknown substances containing solvents such as paint, dyes and adhesives, fumes from furniture (smell of recently-filled sofas) or building material can be found and tested by, for example, sticking an adhesive tape to the offending material for a few days (sofa, wall, etc) or hanging it in the middle of the room like a flycatcher and then rolling it up for testing like a nosode tube.
If such exposure to poisonous substances found in the home cannot be remedied by finding the cause, therapy with bioresonance can assist here too. The offending substance or the adhesive tape strip that has tested as “contaminated” is used as input information and the organism unburdened with a detoxification program or allergy therapy. In this way harmful influences from substances contained in toys (dyes, softeners) can be treated too.
Within the substance complexes stored in the BICOM® BICOM optima®, digitised information on metal contaminants can be found under “Mineral balance”, while information on pesticides and poisonous substances in the home is saved under “Environmental toxins”.
b) Food additives
A search for the additives found in foodstuffs and food products gives us the following list of functional categories (Source: www.zusatzstoffe-online.de):
Many of these substances are made synthetically and are therefore foreign to our organism. Some of these substances immediately cause allergic reaction -e.g. red dyes – others take effect through an accumulation of intolerance reactions. With the help of program 843.0 compensating an intolerance to a preservative is generally possible.
The most important food additives are available in the CTT test kit food additives and can be used for therapy in each case with individually tested detoxification, elimination or anti allergy programs. Making up your own test sets is often too
laborious and unsatisfactory- after all, who of us has room in their practice for the many different types of confectionery, spices, chocolate and crisps?
It always makes sense however to work directly with “suspect materials”. This goes for uncooked materials (flour, spices, drinks, readymix powders for sauces, …) and ready made food and drink brought in by the patient;testing and tracking down the substances triggering the symptoms often requires real detective work- but bioresonance therapy will prove very effective immediately in combating the stresses found in this way.
