Less is often more overtreatment, treatment rhythms and therapy breaks

Dr. med. Jurgen Hennecke, Specialist in General Medicine


Medical intervention is largely results-driven, often making us impatient for success. We want to help (“helper syndrome”), but we also want to prove to the patient and to ourselves (“ego”) that we are good therapists.

The tendency is to continue treating the patient for as long as it takes to see an im­provement. And if the symptoms still do not improve, the patient is simply offered a different type of therapy, a further treatment session and another form of medication.

We are sometimes so caught up in our conventional approaches to medicine (cause —effect, treatment — quick results) that we forget that the bioresonance method is a regulation therapy. As is true of other regulative alternative healing processes, such as acupuncture and homeopathy, we are providing a therapeutic stimulus. If this (oscilla­tion) information resonates with the patient this triggers a whole cascade of physical and biochemical processes in the body, which (we believe) activate the body’s self-healing powers and which lead to an improvement in the patient’s symptoms over the medium to long term.

Initial deterioration and overtreatment

The regulation therapy process also includes detoxification of tissue, the elimination of toxins from the mesenchyme (basic regulation system after Pischinger) and from the cells. This is often accompanied by “elimination reactions” such as sweating, diar­rhoea, sensations of thirst, an urge to urinate and so on. It can also cause “initial dete­riorations” such as a temporary amplification of existing symptoms or a recurrence of symptoms that had (seemingly) subsided. An initial deterioration is normally a sign that the stimulus has hit the right spot, but that the intensity of the stimulus was perhaps too strong. For us it is an indication that subsequent treatments should be “atten­uated” and “gentler”. This is where the “less is more” approach comes into play. Even where a cautious approach is adopted, initial deteriorations are particularly common in the case of skin patients (neurodermatitis, eczema). This can be unpleasant for the patient, although not too disconcerting if they have been alerted to the potential for this type of reaction in advance.

In the case of acute overreactions the following procedure has proven effective:

  • Wait (allow the body time to regulate itself again) and only hold the next treatment session once the symptoms have eased or
  • “Harmonisation program” 127.1 (H 0.1 x) 3 — 5 min, or (possibly) 128.0 (H 0.1 x and Di 0.025 x), DMI attenuating and
  • possibly after testing: support elimination organs, activate or attenuate affected organs or meridians, metabolic program 530.4
  • no further allergy treatment or toxin elimination (risk of overstraining the body)

In the next treatment session:

  • Fewer treatment programs?
  • Test out programs again or individually adapt (reduce amplification and/or treat­ment time)
  • At the end of each treatment session program 127.1 (3 min)

Breaks in therapy

The recommended treatment pattern for chronically ill patients is normally once a week. However, this can mean that no sooner has the initial reaction from a treatment session subsided than the next session takes place and provokes another reaction. It is therefore not unusual if in the first 5 — 6 treatment sessions symptoms fluctuate wildly and the patient is unable to assess whether the previous treatment has been helpful or not.

By this point at the latest the previously treated stresses (allergies, germs, toxins) need to be tested again and, where necessary, treated again with individual programs. A break in therapy of between 4 and 8 weeks is then agreed with the patient. Lo and be­hold, in the majority of cases the symptoms continue to improve or disappear without further treatment interventions. If we allow the body some time to recover, it may be able to “re-regulate” itself, and this then has a very positive effect on the clinical pic­ture.

Case 1: A.W.

The 16-year-old female patient came to us suffering from chronic eczema around her eyelid region, her neck and arms. Following kinesiological testing we treated the Can­dida mycosis in the intestine and, during a corresponding period of abstinence, 3x wheat and spelt and 2x cow’s milk. Despite tests showing that the treatment had been successful, the condition of her skin did not improve. We decided to take a break from therapy, which suited the patient, since she had to travel more than 100 km to our practice each time. It was another 2 years before the patient came to us again for help with another problem and she reported that a few weeks after finishing the previous treatment her skin condition had gradually cleared up completely.

Case 2: N. J.

The 15-year-old boy was experiencing bedwetting at night (nocturnal enuresis). Over a period of 7 weeks we treated the intestinal mycosis, a cow’s milk and sugar allergy and eliminated the 5-way vaccine. During the course of treatment his bedwetting became significantly worse and his parents were at their wits’ end. I explained to them that it could just be an “initial deterioration” and proposed giving his body a break from the therapy for a while so that it had time to process the therapy impulses. Three weeks later the boy was having completely dry nights!

Treatment rhythm

In the case of acute clinical pictures treatment may be administered daily, whereas when dealing with chronic clinical pictures weekly treatments have proven effective. The 7-day week did not come about by chance and has traditionally been replicated widely. Wounds take on average 7 days to heal; larger wounds take 14 days. Is there a biologically defined pattern to this? 4 weeks equals 28 days, which is the average men­strual cycle, possibly triggered in prehistoric times by the lunar orbit. In the practice, adhering to a weekly pattern also has benefits from an organisational point of view: the patient always comes on the same day of the week and generally sees the same therapist.

Once the course of treatment is complete, the patient should only get in touch if the symptoms start to worsen again. In the case of chronic recurring clinical pictures a longer-term course of treatment at greater intervals (every 4 to 8 weeks) may be worthwhile. This also applies where persistent exposure, for example in the workplace, cannot be avoided.

Case 3: Z. B.

The 60-year-old Croat male had been suffering for 2 months from burning eyes and muscular pain. His eye symptoms disappeared quickly after pollen therapy to treat birch and grass allergies. The muscular pain improved during a period of abstinence from wheat and spelt with subsequent treatment and application of detoxification pro­grams. After this he felt so much better that he wanted to come for a further 5 weekly “detoxification treatments.” In order to maintain these positive effects over the long term he now attends monthly sessions involving basic therapy, liver 3063.0, kidneys 3078.0 and the “toxin elimination — general” and “energetic fitmaker” substance com­plexes in channel 2.

Cases 4 and 5: W.S./S. K.

The 64-year-old Dutch male had been suffering for 4 years from chronic borreliosis with muscular pain and chronic fatigue. A course of high-dose antibiotics only resulted in a slight improvement in his symptoms. After several weeks of bioresonance basic treatment he started coming for treatment every 4 weeks, receiving programs 970.5, 900.1 and elimination of the “borrelia, betaherpes and gammaherpes” combination. He now has fewer symptoms and is able to get on with his daily life.

Another female patient with the same diagnosis and similar symptoms has also been able to manage her condition since coming for regular elimination of the “borrelia and mercury” combination every 2 to 4 weeks (since 2010).

Case 6: B. F.

The retired female biologist, now 67, came to us presenting with multiple food aller­gies. From 2013 — 2014 she underwent several months of bioresonance treatment and was subsequently able to eat almost anything again. She feels more confident since she has been coming for monthly relapse prevention treatments using the following: Input: abdomen 3089.0 (mucous membrane treatment),

Input: blood drops 984.0 (“unknown allergen”) and

Input: own sweat 998.

Case 7: S. S.

The 51-year-old female teacher and avid tango dancer would have had an extremely attractive face were it not for the fact that every few weeks she experienced a nasty outbreak of herpes simplex. We treated the Candida mycosis, a wheat and spelt al­lergy, a cat hair allergy and the herpes simplex infection. She was clear of any symp­toms for a number of months. Following an acute flare-up in symptoms she now comes to us almost every month for relapse prevention treatment to eliminate the “alpha- and gammaherpes” combination and only rarely experiences a minor recur­rence of the infection in stressful situations, which quickly disappears again.

Case 8: A. W.

The 56-year-old male farmer constantly picks up infections from his cows and suffers from recurring beef tapeworm infections resulting in severe stomach cramps. Helmex deworming treatments only provide temporary relief and even after an intensive bio­resonance elimination another new infection is never far away. He now comes to us for monthly biophysical deworming prevention treatments and has been symptom-free for a number of years.

Case 9: M. P.

The 48-year-old female patient suffers the same affliction as many in her age group and is plagued with hot flushes, outbreaks of sweating and mood swings. The meno­pausal symptoms quickly improved with bioresonance and without the need for any hormone supplements.

In order to maintain this new improved quality of life she comes for monthly digital hormone treatment:

Input: thyroid gland and lower abdomen 3049, 3088, 980.2, 981.1, 934.1, 900.1 (channel 2: menopausal syndrome)

Case 10: K. N.

The 44-year-old Turkish female teacher was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with hypothyroidism in 2015. After treating cow’s milk and titanium (dental post) and applying a number of hormone programs her general wellbeing improved, she lost 5 kg in weight and we were able to reduce the dose of L-thyroxine from 100 pg to 88 rig. She still comes once a month for liver detoxification 430.2 and for chakra therapy.


Bioresonance therapy is used in chronically ill patients to provide basic energy treat­ment and stabilisation and in some cases to offer (monthly) relapse prevention as well. Every human and every organism has its own internal clock. Treatment patterns need to be adapted to the patient’s own responsiveness and ability to regulate their own body. Where the progress of the disease is drawn out, greater intervals between treat­ments and breaks in therapy have proven effective. This type of cautious approach and sensible therapeutic “inaction” require a good deal of trust on the part of the patient and a certain amount of courage on the part of the therapist.
