Pathogens and poisons – a dangerous interrelationship. Testing and treating combinations of stresses

Dr. med.Jürgen Hennecke, Specialist in General Medicine, Simone Maquinay-Hennecke, BICOM® Therapist, Aachen, Germany


Bioresonance therapists have been searching for the root cause of chronic conditions for decades. According to our observations, the focus has changed in recent years in much the same vein as in other areas of art and science.

For many years, amalgam poisoning appeared to be responsible for virtually all chronic disorders. More recently, vaccinations have stepped into the limelight and have been eliminated on a massive scale.

Then Candida came to be seen as the villain. “I’m ill and I don’t know why” became a bestseller and patients were tortured with sugar-free diets for months.

All of a sudden, parasites were the root of all evil and were tracked down and hunted in all organs and meridians for months and years.

Viruses and bacteria were not spared either and became prime suspects from time to time.

Unfortunately, increasing numbers of therapists engaged in therapeutic dogmatism and believed they had a monopoly on the truth.

After 26 years of bioresonance therapy, we take the view that “Many roads lead to Rome” and the cause of illness in an individual is often a combination of a number of different stress factors. In recent years we have increasingly witnessed the dangerous cocktail of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites combined with environmental toxins such as heavy metals and chemicals.

The barrel

A good many years ago we developed the concept of the barrel that fills up with chronic stress during a person’s lifetime. For a long time the body is able to offset these stresses up until the last few (stress-related) drops cause the barrel to overflow, culminating in chronic illness seemingly appearing out of the blue (Figure, overleaf).

The (oscillating) combination of a few pathogens and certain toxic substances produces an explosive mix. One trigger factor (often emotional stress) can cause the barrel to overflow even before it is completely full (Figure, page after next).

Frequent combinations

The most common relevant pathogens detected in our practice are:

Viruses: Epstein Barr, Herpes zoster, Herpes simplex, Coxsackie, Cytomegaly

Bacteria: Borrelia, Staphylococci, Streptococci, Salmonella, Chlamydia, Mycoplasms

Fungi: Candida species, Aspergillus, Aflatoxin (fungal toxin)

Parasites: Oxyuris, Ascaris, Schistosoma

The most common toxins we encounter are:

Heavy metals: Mercury, aluminium, lead, chromium and titanium

Chemicals: Wood preservatives (Xyladecor), formaldehyde, pyrmethrine, chlorinated hydrocarbons mix, solvents.

Possible reaction patterns

1. After the acute infection appears to have been cured, certain viruses, bacteria and parasites often remain in various body tissues (frequently the nervous or lymph system) for very long periods, sometimes for life. For therapists, it is irrelevant whether the pathogen is actually present itself, or through its toxins or metabolic products, or merely in the form of immaterial, subtle oscillation information. A healthy immune system and a properly functioning metabolism and detoxification system can generally compensate for this stress without any symptoms of disease actually appearing.

However, add to this acute or subacute poisoning with environmental toxins or heavy metals, and a new pathological oscillating pattern emerges that swiftly overpowers any compensatory mechanisms. Even chronic, slowly increasing intoxication can, at some point, exceed critical levels. Sometimes, an “ignition flame”, e.g. in the form of emotional stress is all that it takes to light the explosive mixture.

2. Conversely, chronic stress due to environmental toxins and heavy metals may be symptom-free for a long time provided that the eliminating organs are functioning efficiently and continuously detoxifying mechanisms are also at work. Combine this with an acute or subacute infection caused by one or more pathogens accompanied by a new pathological oscillating pattern, and the symptoms of illness will emerge (apparently “out of the blue” or “for no apparent reason”).

These combinations are often evident with chronic neurological disorders (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s syndrome, polyneuropathy, chronic fatigue syndrome, psychoses and depression). The lymphatic and immunocompetent tissue is also often affected (weaker defences, lymphadenitis, autoimmune diseases and cancer).

Testing and Therapy

Ampoule pathogens:
Dr. Schumacher: Bacteria, parasites (identification test set), fungi (inhalation test set)
CTT: Bacteria, virus and fungi, parasite test sets.

Environmental toxin ampoules:
Dr. Schumacher: Identification test set
CTT: Environmental toxin test set
or Multisoft
Substances brought in to the practice by patients (e.g. from the workplace)

→ With nosodes, use the lowest possible potentiation (D6 maximum).

If an individual suspect substance does not give a clear result on pathological testing, try looking for a possible “combination partner”. The new oscillation pattern will often show a clear-cut result.

Example: Mercury in the input cup, “add” viruses and bacteria using the pick-up applicator. Test (Ai) with program 170 or 191.


Always treat therapy blocks (radiation exposure, scars), eliminating organs and chronic allergies (milk, wheat) first of all.

Stresses can be eliminated individually one after the other following priority testing (2-4x, sometimes more frequently) or also in combination (pathogen and toxin).

Sometimes, in the first sessions, only one toxin or pathogen can be treated and then both in succession in the following sessions. Thereafter, these combinations can also often be treated very effectively.

Therapy programs
The relevant programs for the respective sessions should be tested. In the case of sensitive patients, all program parameters, especially amplification and treatment time, should be carefully checked. It has proved beneficial to start with low amplifications and short treatment times and to gradually increase the settings as the sessions continue. Programs with an amplification sweep (increasing, decreasing or symmetrical) are often well tolerated.

Type of therapy
– “Ai” in the case of toxins, bacteria, fungi and parasites
– “Ai” or “Di” for viruses

Band setting:
“Without band setting”, e.g. 999, 998, 944, etc.

“Individual frequency” e.g.
25 kHz and 5.2 Hz for viruses, 17.8 Hz and 3.3 Hz for fungi

Tried and tested programs:

Virus 1
Di, 25 kHz, decreasing amplification sweep (64x) 24 sec, 8 min

Virus 2
Di, 5.2 Hz, decreasing amplification sweep (64x) 24 sec, 8 min

Candida 1
Di, all frequencies, decreasing amplification sweep (64x) 12 sec, 6 min

Candida 2
Ai, 17.8 Hz, sym. amplification sweep (15x) 50 sec, 12 min (Dr. Rauch)

Candida 3
Ai, 17.8 Hz, sym. amplification sweep (10x) 50 sec, 12 min (Dr. Rauch)

Candida 4
Ai, 3.3 Hz, sym. amplification sweep (64x) 24 sec, 10 min (also for moulds)

Radiation exposure and pathogens

There is increasing evidence to suggest that the aggression and virulence of some pathogens (e.g. Borrelia and Epstein-Barr virus) are also exacerbated by electric, magnetic or electromagnetic fields (electrosmog). Affected patients should therefore always be tested following radiation exposure and treated/ “decontaminated” where appropriate.

Case studies

Case 1  N. C., female, 59 years old, Herpes zoster and solvent

The patient had used a solvent (caustic soda) to remove old staining from wooden floorboards. A few days later, she experienced a severe bout of shingles on her face, neck and scalp (accompanied by alopecia and severe pain). Her General Practitioner prescribed Aciclovir tablets (virostatic agent) and told her that this severe episode would probably last for several months.

Three BICOM® therapies were initially administered at weekly intervals:

1. 428, 911, Herpes zoster (978), solvent supplied by patient (Ai with staged decrease)
2. 922, 911, solvent (Ai 32x, decreasing amplification sweep 14 sec), Herpes zoster 978
3. 910, 911, 922, solvent (Ai 64x, decreasing amplification sweep 17 sec), Herpes zoster 978, followed by
127 (3 min)
4. 710, 910, 922, 911, Herpes zoster
(Ai 64x, decreasing amplification sweep 12 sec), solvent 944 (Ai, staged increase)

Following treatment, the skin rashes and pain improved considerably and the General Practitioner was very surprised.

One month later, the patient came for follow-up treatment due to slight persistent discomfort. In the next two treatment sessions, Herpes zoster and the solvent could be treated together.

1. 301, 330, 911; Herpes zoster and solvent 978 (increasing amplification sweep, 9 min)
2. 911, 570; Herpes zoster and solvent 978 (decreasing amplification sweep, 10 min)

Interpretation: Herpes zoster, which had probably been lying dormant for years, was reactivated by acute solvent intoxication.

Case 2  I. B., female, Xyladecor and Epstein-Barr virus

Since the death of her sister one year earlier and caring for her husband who was suffering from dementia, the patient had been suffering from depression with crying and panic attacks as well as alopecia. The clinical picture initially seemed to be purely emotional. However, the test showed that, in addition to milk allergy, the patient had chronic Xyladecor contamination and a reactivated Epstein-Barr virus.

Six Bioresonance treatments were administered at weekly intervals:

3x milk, 2x Xyladecor, lx Gamma herpes (Epstein-Barr virus)

The panic attacks and alopecia subsequently improved and the patient felt “more stable in herself”.

Interpretation: Chronic (asymptomatic) Xyladecor contamination and chronic (inactive) mononucleosis over many years. This combination was reactivated by emotional stress. The patient was able to cope more effectively with stress following this process of “physical relief”.

Case 3  S. P., male, 21 years old, Permethrin and Epstein-Barr virus

Glandular fever six years earlier. Working for one year in a carpenter’s workshop — extremely stressful. The patient then experienced Burn-Out syndrome. He was constantly tired and lethargic, and also occasionally experienced numbness in his arms and legs.

Seven Bioresonance therapies:
2x cow’s milk, 2x Gamma herpes, lx sugar , 2x Permethrin

He subsequently felt less tired, fitter and generally much better.

Interpretation: dormant Epstein-Barr virus, subchronic intoxication with the pesticide Permethrin in the carpenter’s workshop (“dangerous cocktail”), accompanied by emotional stress.

Case 4   W. K., male, 64 years old, Epstein-Barr virus, chlorinated hydrocarbons mix, mercury, palladium

The patient was an allergy sufferer and, at the outset, was treated several times for food and pollen allergies. Dental cleansing had already been carried out. Six months earlier he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease accompanied by shaking of the arms and legs (mainly on the left) and impaired cognitive function. The neurologist had already introduced pharmacological therapy which barely alleviated the symptoms.

Testing revealed reactions to the mercury, palladium, chlorinated hydrocarbons mix and Gamma herpes ampoules.

Extensive BRT recovery therapy was administered over several months. The patient was highly motivated as he always felt better after treatment (on occasions he experienced initial deterioration too).

Treatments after priority testing:
12x mercury, 3x chlorinated hydrocarbons mix, 3x palladium, then 10x alternating between mercury and Gamma herpes. As the best outcome was achieved with the last procedure, it was repeated a further ten times. Unfortunately the patient stopped treatment as he wanted to try out something else …

Interpretation: Despite dental cleansing and early elimination, chronic stress persisted through mercury and palladium, dormant Epstein-Barr virus and insecticide contamination probably acquired through inhalation (chlorinated hydrocarbons mix). Eventually, the extent of the stress overstretched the metabolism and the capacity of the nervous system to detoxify itself. A combination of mercury and Epstein-Barr virus proved to be especially dominant.

Case 5  R. Z., male, Candida, moulds, titanium, Xyladecor

After an emotional shock (fear of flying) three years earlier, the patient experienced chronic postural vertigo with imbalance and poor concentration. Also occasional dyspnoea.

Intestinal cleansing and nine bioresonance therapies were carried out:

lx Candida, 3x Xyladecor, 2x titanium, 3x Aspergillus mix.

The vertigo and poor concentration subsequently improved. The patient felt “stronger” with hardly any respiratory problems.

Interpretation: former titanium dental implants, years of Xyladecor-related stress activated by subsequently acquired yeast and mould infections (and their toxins), destabilised by emotional shock.

Case 6    I. P., female, 43 years old, Borrelia and mercury

Alternating joint pain over the previous two years affecting the knees, arms and wrists. Previously, frequent tick bites (antibiotic treatments). Borrelia antibodies in the blood.

Chronic amalgam stress due to her work as a dentist. Thanks to the BRT elimination of Borrelia and mercury, the joint pain initially disappeared completely. As the symptoms reappeared every few months, Borrelia and mercury were increasingly eliminated, mostly alternately and eventually at the same time.

Interpretation: chronically dormant Borrelia (following tick bites), constantly reactivated through subchronic mercury intake (dental treatments).


Many chronic cases of illness are due to an individual combination of various adverse influences which can “goad” each other and develop into a “dangerous cocktail”. A meticulous search for such stress combinations and the introduction of differentiated treatments will often lead to surprising and successful therapeutic outcomes.
