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

TGA cracking down on non-compliant advertising of bioresonance and similar devices

Posted 18 August 2019

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

Health Coach Academy – Intolerance testing

Posted 28 August 2018

The Health Coach Academy is advertising “Intolerance, Deficiency and Toxicity Testing” claiming to be effective in solving “undetected food or environmental sensitivity and intolerance, a vitamin or mineral deficiency or metal toxicity”.

The website claims that that identification of these are via “intolerance, deficiency & toxicity tests performed via hair analysis using bio-resonance technology“. 

Only one big problem – there is no evidence that these tests are useful at all. In fact, there is evidence that they are useless.

Beware, avoid.

Mary Comerce is the Founder/Director/Health Coach of the company and I am not able to find evidence of medical related training.

Bioresonance nonsense

Posted 17 November 2014

At the website, Bioresonance Quit Smoking Therapy (www.bioresonance.co.za/), the claim is made that “Bioresonance Quit Smoking Therapy is one of the most advanced bioresonance technologies to help people give up smoking. Usually 3 or 4 sessions with BICOM 2000 is sufficient to make you stop smoking”. Further on the claims are made that “Modern German bioresonance technology has success rate over 90%. The stop smoking therapy helps you quit smoking without the desire for nicotine and without gaining weight”.

Our skeptic radar was triggered. How is it that such a remarkable success rate has not resulted in this product being more widely available and used?

Luckily for us, Dr Dave Gorski’s ‘insolence’ blog has done us a service by eloquently explaining why this is sheer nonsense, or as he describes Read the rest
