Bioresonance: a new (and most underwhelming) study

Posted 27 March 2022

From the blog of Prof Edzard Ernst, MD, PhD, FMedSci, FRSB, FRCP, FRCPEd, and a previous Professor of Complementary Medicine.

Bioresonance is an alternative therapeutic and diagnostic method employing a device developed in Germany by Scientology member Franz Morell in 1977. The bioresonance machine was further developed and marketed by Morell’s son-in-law Erich Rasche and is also known as ‘MORA’ therapy (MOrell + RAsche). Bioresonance is based on the notion that one can diagnose and treat illness with electromagnetic waves and that, via resonance, such waves can influence disease on a cellular level.

On this blog, we have discussed the idiocy bioresonance several times (for instance, here and here). My favorite study of bioresonance is the one where German investigators showed that the device cannot even differentiate between living and non-living materials. Despite the lack of plausibility and proof

In May 2019, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA – Australia) commenced work on a sector-wide compliance activity relating to the advertising of ‘bioresonance’ devices, which are sometimes mistakenly promoted as ‘biofeedback’ devices. This sector has been identified as having a high rate of advertising non-compliance, with widespread advertising. The advertising of bioresonance has been the subject of previous regulatory compliance actions.

(Editor: Beamer, Scio and Quantum SCIO-EPFX devices are included in this category)

Bioresonance is based on the belief that human beings emit electromagnetic waves, which can only be measured by bioresonance devices. Advertisers claim these devices can measure these waves to detect illness in the human body as well as sending ‘rehabilitated bad’ waves to the patient to alleviate illness.

The TGA is currently investigating the scientific credibility relating to the diagnostic and therapeutic use of these devices. The TGA is also working Read the rest

thorntonStreeter “Dr” Thornton Streeter is in South Africa giving workshops on the Biofield Viewer. I heard him promoting this product on SAFM on Saturday morning 30 November 2013. Streeter sounds very convincing and if one did not know that he was mixing pseudoscience and actual science to support the claims for the Biofield Viewer, it could convince individuals to believe this nonsense.ThorntonStreeterOlder

The Biofield Viewer claims to “. .  allow[s] the holistic practitioner to view the human aura (scientifically known as the biofield), the Chakras and energetic issues live. It is a state of the art software system based on the principle that photons of light interact with energy fields“. This is fruitloopery, or shall we say, baloney! In fact, the existence of such fields has not yet been scientifically proven.

However, here we focus on whether “Dr” Thornton Streeter simply a fraud? We think Read the rest
