Teeth as overriding interference fields in musculoskeletal disorders

Marcel Riffel, naturopath, Ostfildern,  Germany


Dear colleagues,
Dear friends of bioresonance therapy,

I am now in my seventh year as a naturopath working with BICOM® bioresonance therapy. Prior to this I worked for six years exclusively as a physiotherapist
– predominantly focusing on trauma/

I still remember one female patient who had persistent shoulder pain and who must have come to me some 30 – 40 times for treatment. Mrs K. had abnormal pain, could not raise her arm or splay out her fingers – everyday work of any kind caused her extreme pain or proved completely impossible. She categorically refused surgery because the results of x-rays and MRT scans, sonography, blood count, etc. all came back showing no problem. Nothing seemed to help, be it cortisone, ibuprofen, Voltaren or manual therapy, massages, electrotherapy, osteopathy or thermotherapy.

After a number of unsuccessful treatments I finally admitted defeat and told the patient that I had tried everything I could and could do nothing more for her. Mrs K. thanked me for my efforts and had already resigned herself to having to live with the pain.

Some 2 to 3 years later I met the patient again. She said hello, as she now lived in the same neighbourhood as me. She then said: “Mr Riffel, I got to the bottom of the problem with my arm! And do you know what was causing the problem? – A tooth!”

She explained to me that she had visited the dentist because of a raging toothache and severe swelling. The dentist spotted a tooth abscess, which he extracted straightaway. Following the extraction the patient jumped for joy. The dentist naturally assumed that Mrs K. no longer had toothache. – Actually it was due to the fact that directly after the extraction the patient was able to move her arm in all directions for the first time without it causing her pain.

After we had chatted like neighbours do for a while, and I had explained to her that I was now working as a naturopath using “oscillation techniques” she said to me
“Mr Riffel – never forget your patients’

I’ve heeded that advice ever since and I’m delighted to be able to report today on the important role teeth play in musculoskeletal disorders using a number of case studies.

The importance of teeth within holistic diagnosis

We all know that PISCHINGER’s basic regulation system forms the anatomical and physiological basis of holistic medicine. This, the oldest complete regulation system can be restricted in its ability to regulate by harmful pathogens (endogeneous and exogeneous noxae such as medication residues, heavy metals, allergens …), which may result in interference within the five elements.

My presentation focuses on teeth as the overriding therapy blocks which serve to block the organism’s ability to regulate itself. The teeth respond in energy terms within the segment-related reaction zone.

For example, tissue trauma causes a local cellular reaction in neighbouring cells. In other words, a reaction in the basic regulation system after PISCHINGER.

The body experiences pain since tissue hormones are secreted. This results in a humoral reaction via the blood, whereby the surrounding nerve endings, the immune system and the meridian react.

If the meridian’s ability to regulate is depleted or insufficient, it receives assistance from parallel back-up systems. The meridian’s yin-yang partners, paranasal sinuses, tonsils, the skin’s reflex zones and associated tooth sockets (odontoma) react at the same time. This causes a reaction within the segment-related reaction

If the compensatory mechanisms are also depleted, the entire element may then be decompensated (element reaction), which in turn may additionally lead to a 5- element reaction.

Based on the empirical values taken from Dr. VOLL and Dr. KRAMER, different meridian structures are assigned to the teeth than is the case in kinesiology. Since these are empirical values, both approaches take the view that a tooth may in principle be connected to any other meridian structure.

Furthermore, kinesiologists have assigned several segment indicating muscles to each meridian and therefore to each tooth.

We BICOM® therapists can now identify energetically weakened teeth using different diagnostic measures such as EAV, kinesiology and the biotensor. Whether we do this using the CTT and the dental test set or directly via the patient or via nosodes, it is entirely up to the therapist to test based on their own personal preference.

We can also test via the CTT whether we are dealing with a meridian-tooth connection
or a tooth-meridian connection and thus determine relatively quickly how high the energetic interference potential of the individual tooth is and whether we might also need to consult a holistic biological dentist.

Using this knowledge and the opportunity to test these relationships using bioenergetic means, we establish the basis for joined-up thinking and thus for another way of looking at the patient’s symptoms. I am primarily interested not in localising the patient’s pain, but rather in the cause of the patient’s symptoms and how I can energetically stabilise the overriding regulation blocks, such as the teeth, to allow local measures such as cupping, manual techniques, thermotherapy or massage to be used effectively once again.

Here are a few examples of patients for whom bioenergetic treatment of a tooth has played a significant role in their recovery from a musculoskeletal condition.


Case 1
R.S., female, aged 42
Clinical features

Unspectacular fall on the left hip (Trochanter major) while skiing. Since then, pain on the side of the hip and restricted hip flexion when standing up.
The patient likened it to a block in the groin region. She came to us for physiotherapy with a prescription for 6 x KG / fango → no improvement. She then came for BRT.

Test findings

  • Tooth 28 → assigned to the small intestine/heart according to VOLL/ KRAMER
  • Small intestine meridian-tooth 28

Case 4
R., female, aged 57

Chronic polyarthritis since 2006 (clinically shown with rheumatoid factors and through MRT).
Secondary diagnoses: slight NPP L4/L5 / CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) / pollinosis.
Medication: Methotrexate and 2 ½ mg cortisone each day.

Clinical features

At the start of illness had pain in wrists and elbows, big toe metacarpophalangeal joints and in the right hip.
All symptoms improved with medication within a period of 3 years, except for the pain experienced in the right hip which caused restricted movement when flexing the hips and with internal rotation. Based on MRT and clinical results it was found to be synoviitis (inflammation of the joint membrane).
Operation: synovectomy in Spring 2009 with no improvement in symptoms; an RSO (radiosynoviorthesis) was carried out beforehand.

Test findings

  • A full bioenergetic report was carried out, whereby the direction of spin of the blood, urine and stools was checked.
  • The 5 elements were also checked using
    the CTT and likewise scar interference fields, eliminating organs and teeth as well as all the pathogens.
  • The patient made it clear she would only
    come for treatment for her hip problem and did not wish to address her underlying illness because she was managing it with the aid of medication.

After the bioenergetic results were recorded it was quickly discovered using the CROSS test which energetic structures were responsible for the hip problems.

Hip test findings

  • Tooth 34 → assigned to the large intestine in kinesiology
  • Segment indicating muscles: tensor
    fascie latae / quadratus lumborum /
    ischiocrural muscles
  • Pathogenic stress: radioactivity
  • Miasma stress: Tuberculinum D200
  • Cupping applied around the patient’s
  • Clinical check showed that with tooth 34
    and a cupping glass the painful restricted movements in the right hip could be corrected.1st treatmenta. Basic therapy
    Program 104 (individualised: frequency
    sweep speed 22 sec. / Di = 23) Input: right foot
    Output: large modulation mat
    Input cup: blood Storage device: 1 chip Duration: 11 minb. Extended overall treatment via the jaw
    Input: Goldfinger tooth 34
    Output: segment indicating muscles (quadratus lumborum and tensor fascie latae) + additional magnetic articulated probe on hip
    Input cup: blood
    Storage device: 1 chip
    Program 1: individually tested sweep program: interval mode / Ai = 18 (constant) / duration: 9 min
    Program 2: individual frequency: 123 kHz / wobble YES / interval mode / Ai
    = 23 (constant amplification) /
    duration: 10 min


Directly after treatment significantly improved freedom of movement in the hip flexion when standing up. Pain subjectively less acute.
Chip placed sideways on right hip /
next treatment in 14 days.

2nd treatment

After 14 days the patient reported she was able to do light jogging again, that her hip mobility was better and that she rode 25 km on her bike. Now she only has slightly stiff muscles. Tooth 34 also stable after provocation test.
1. Following kinesiological test the patient does not need basic therapy.
2. Treatment of pathogens (radioactivity) via CTT and simultaneous use of a hot roll sideways along the hip. The patient lay on her left side on the modulation mat.
3. Individual frequency testing for radioactivity stress (individual frequency: 82 kHz / A = 44 (constant) / continuous mode / wobble YES)
4. Massage cupping to the right-hand trochanter major
5. Dry cupping program 200 / 6 glasses around right trochanter
6. Blood cupping program 970 / 6 glasses around right trochanter

3rd treatment

After another 14 days the patient reported that sitting in the office was uncomfortable again and she has the feeling that the existing internal symptoms are radiating out below the groin region. Tooth 34
stable, radioactivity tests negative.

1. Following kinesiological test the patient does not need basic therapy.
2. Treatment of miasma stress Tuberculinum
D200 via self-potentiation program (11 min)
3. Hot roll on groin region
4. Dry and blood cupping with only one glass in the inguinal region via a program tested by me, which I called “detoxification of the mucous membranes”.

Detoxification of the mucous membranes as part of cytostatic therapy (114 kHz / Ai = 53 / const. amplification / wobble YES / interval mode)

4th treatment

The hip was not painful and hip flexion and hip inner rotation functioned well during examination. Patient had lumbar spine/ sacroiliac joint pain.

1. Following kinesiological test the patient did not need basic therapy
2. Hot roll and massage cupping in lumbar spine/sacroiliac joint region
3. Dry and blood cupping using 4 glasses each (both sacroiliac joint and both L3/L4) with program 581
4. Chiropractic technique for the blocked right sacroiliac joint


4 treatments with BICOM® bioresonance therapy achieved the same result as that expected from a hip operation!

Case 5
L., male, aged 14


Osgood-Schlatter disease right knee (x-ray confirmation)

Clinical features

January 2011. Pain for 14 days in the tuberositas tibiae after physical stress. The tuberosity is extremely prominent and tender, but not particularly warm. He is unable to do any form of sport. Patient is an avid tennis player (4 – 5 training sessions per week). Has extremely short ischium (posterior thigh muscle).

Case history

One year ago (January 2010) the patient had the same symptoms. He had fallen on his knee at that time. Diagnosis was Osgood-Schlatter disease. From January to March 2010 he took a break from tennis. Treatment with physiotherapy / electrotherapy / shock wave therapy without success.

Test findings

  • Crouching is painful. Terminal knee joint flexion is painful. Pelvic displacement with functional variable difference in length of legs of 2 cm.
  • Tooth 13 → assigned to the liver
    according to VOLL/KRAMER
  • Liver-tooth 13 connection (chemical
    stress / improve tolerance / mumps vaccination)
  • Milk tooth had to be removed at this point. Patient had been wearing brace for six months; tooth 13 was very slowly appearing.
  • Positive CROSS test tooth 13 and right knee joint.
  • This means that tooth 13, as the overriding regulation block, is likely responsible for treatment of the knee joint having had no effect a year earlier. The post-vaccine liver stress is responsible for the fact that tooth 13 energetically supports the liver meridian in terms of the segment-related reaction.
  • Honeysuckle Bach flower remedy

1st treatment

a. Basic therapy with program 10135
Input: adhesive applicator on right tuberosity and Goldfinger tooth 13
Output: large modulation mat
(DMI building up)
Input cup: blood / output cup: drops / storage device: 1 chip / duration: 12 min Channel 2: liver / tooth 13 in honeycomb / A = 23

b. Program 3036.0 according to the indication = detoxification regulation /
8 min / applicator positioning + everything as above
Channel 2: A = 12

c. Dry and blood cupping with program 581 both sacroiliac joints

d. Chiropractic technique to rectify pelvic displacement and sacroiliac joint block

e. Treatment of painful tuberosity with ultrasound combined with electrotherapy.


Following treatment the patient is better able to crouch and above all stand up again more easily from a crouching position.
3 x 5 drops / chip on tuberosity until the following week.

2nd treatment

Played tennis 4 times the following week with no pain. Feels that there is something there on his knee, but with no pain. Was also able to take part in sport at school without any problems.
After one week tooth 13 tests stable and the tenderness of the tuberosity has improved. The pelvic displacement has been corrected. Conventional treatment then took place using a hot roll, stretching of the posterior and anterior thigh muscle and ultrasound combined with electrotherapy.
Cupping therapy close to the patella (2 large glasses) and left and right of the patellar tendon (with small cupping glasses) also carried out. Program 951 used for this.


After treatment the patient is able to crouch again with greater ease.
Chip again placed on the tuberosity until the following week.

I would now like to report on a patient who with his diagnosis of atopic dermatitis has nothing to do with the topic of my paper. However, the case has made a lasting impression on me because this skin inflammation was cured as a result of treatment to a tooth.

The patient had a bioenergetic test, which showed up abnormalities in the earth and wood elements. I discovered a viral stress (paramyxovirus), a heavy metal stress with mercury and a chemical stress from Pattex adhesive.

Before treatment began the patient underwent liver cleansing after Dr. Clark. Based on a structured procedure the eliminating organs were stabilised first of all (with BICOM® and via eliminating drops). Deficits in the orthomolecular region were balanced using oral food supplements from the company GREENLEAVES and Chlorella algae were prescribed. After the eliminating organs were stabilised the aforementioned pathogen substances (viruses, Pattex and mercury) were eliminated. This elimination was supported again with a BICOM® cupping therapy.

Following the kinesiology test a body fluids treatment was also carried out, first with urine and then with blood.

During this time the patient abstained from eating pork, drinking alcohol and coffee and drank plenty of pure low-mineral water.

I prescribed ozonised olive oil to treat the skin. Bach flower remedies were used and a cerebral imprint (HAMER focus) was treated using the BICOM®.

But nothing, absolutely nothing helped.

After eight failed sessions I was at my wit’s end. The dermatitis was getting worse and worse. Of course I questioned my methods and in the ninth session I carried out a completely new bioenergetic examination and ignored everything that I had tested before. I didn’t test using the CTT and instead used the spin tester.

Case 6
K. H., male, aged 73

Atopic dermatitis on the face, the arms and the legs.

Test findings

  • Elimination organs: lymph, liver, kidneys ↓
    Direction of spin of urine: right-spin
    (needs to be left-spin)
  • Right-spin on tooth 24 / on crown chakra
    and on metal element (skin)
  • → Metal element (impaired elimination
    and stress)
  • Bach flower remedies: beech + impatiens


1. Input: Goldfinger tooth 24
Output: crown chakra (applicator on crown of head) + 2 applicators on eczema on both underarms + 2 ball applicators
Input cup: urine
Output cup: 30 ml drops GRANDER H2O Program: individually tested basic therapy: frequency sweep speed:
14 sec. / continuous mode / H = 3.30 (constant) / duration: 13 min

2. Individual frequency: 35 kHz / wobble YES / interval mode / H = 4.40 (constant amplification) / duration:
15 min

3. CTT
Patient only at output / program 192 / A = 13 / 7 min
The input cup contains the following ampoules: metal / skin / tooth 24 / stress / impaired elimination / and the
2 Bach flower remedies of beech and impatiens.


Immediately after therapy there was an improvement in the swelling and reddening of the skin.
3 x 5 drops / next treatment in 7 days.
When patient came to me one week later
I could not believe my eyes. The rash had gone and his skin was almost normal. The patient had stabilised once again and was given a check-up appointment in 4 weeks. After 4 weeks the skin condition had not worsened.

I found this absolutely incredible!

Concluding remarks
Now I hope that by listing my case studies I have been able to motivate you to place greater importance on teeth in your bioenergetic testing and treatment.

If as a result of my presentation you would like to learn more about treatment for spinal column and joint conditions using bioenergetic dental treatment, then please come to one of my seminars. I look forward to seeing you!

And I’ll end now with the words of wisdom given to me by Mrs K. : “Dear friends of bioresonance therapy – never forget your patients’ teeth!”

I hope that you will consider using this well- meaning advice in your bioenergetic work in future.

Kindest regards

Marcel Riffel
