Addressing psychological health challenges

Andrew Craft, Non‐medical practitioner, Kempsey, Australia
Introduction
Hello, my name is Andrew Craft, and I am a Non‐Medical practitioner working in Kempsey, Australia. Thank you to Regumed for inviting me to present at this year’s international congress, and thank you for taking the time to listen to my presentation today.

According to WHO statistics approximately 1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental health condition at some point in their life.

With mental health becoming such a significant part of clinical work I’m sure many of you have also asked yourselves how can we, as BICOM® method practitioners, offer help and support to clients who are facing these challenges?

This can be quite a complicated task. Particularly while also being careful not to overstep the bounds of our therapy. What I would like to share with you all today is the technique I use in my clinic. I’ve found this technique to be an effective way of supporting clients who are dealing with psychological h...

Application of meridian therapy in practice

Jana Maškova (Ing. Bc.), BICOM Therapist, Czech Republic
Acupuncture pathways, or meridians, are the connections of acupuncture points in the body. They originate in Chinese medicine. Despite their existence, they have not been recognised by conventional medicine. Although it is evident that these energy pathways work, science has not gone so far as to prove it.
These biologically active points exhibit different properties than the rest of the surface of the skin, which is why they can be proven by electro‐detection devices as well as through thermovision (see figure).

Figure 1
The basis of Chinese medicine is called the pentagram. You can read a lot in it (see figure 2).

Mother/son rule
The son is the element that follows clockwise after his mother. The mother always supports her son (tonifying). This means if any element shows imbalance, you also have to look at the mother to check if she is all right. If not, then the mother also needs to be treated. The reverse directio...

The impact of heavy metals – aluminium on the blood test

Zdravka Svetličić, dr. med. vet., Homeopath, Bioresonance therapist, Zagreb, Croatia
Introduction:

We are surrounded by aluminium and the increasing number of experts believe that too much of it enters and stays in our bodies. The consequences are by no means harmless.

The fact is that we ingest it in excessive amounts, most often unknowingly, partly through food, partly through the skin or by inhaling it. The health hazard was confirmed by the report submitted by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) to the European Commission.

The book "When Aluminium poisons us", by Virginie Belle, talks about the problem of excessive intake of aluminium. This book caused the commotion a few years ago in France, but also in other EU countries. It is a book that deals with the toxicity and harmfulness of Aluminium, a most abundant metal on our planet.

Where can you find aluminium?

While fifty years ago we ingested minimal amounts of aluminium from vegetables and maybe some f...

Practical approach to handling infections

Cassandra Mougiakou, MD, specialist in Internal Medicine, Athens, Greece

Infection is the state when germs like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites invade and grow by multiplying in the body.

Infections by prions (e.g. Creutzfeldt‐Jakob disease), which are a type of protein that can trigger normal proteins in the brain to fold abnormally, will not be discussed here.

An infection can begin anywhere in the body and may spread through it. Disease can develop when the cells in the body get damaged as a result of the infection, leading to the appearance of symptoms of an illness.

It’s also possible to have an asymptomatic infection. Some examples of infections that don’t always cause symptoms include HPV, gonorrhea, and Chlamydia.
Types of infection acc. to their duration
Acute infections are the ones that, after their onset, they progress quite rapidly and are over after days or within 4 weeks.

Subacute infections last between 1 to 3 months.
Chronic infections can last for week...

Enhanced diagnostic possibilities and causal therapy approaches on the way to psycho‐energetic balance

Silvie Kimmerle, Naturopath, Germany
Influences from many approaches to treatment were taken into account in the development of these two test sets, so that not only pure BICOM® therapeutics can be found here. This was particularly important to us during the development, especially in view of the new foundation of the AKI (Akademie für Komplementär‐ und Informationsmedizin – Academy for Complementary and Informational Medicine).
The following influences were integrated into the development of the test sets:

Chinese energetics
Psychological kinesiology
Systemic treatment approaches
Bach flower therapy
Gemstone therapy
Homeopathy
Chakra therapy, amongst others

This was necessary in order to achieve the most holistic approach possible and to be able to really diagnose and treat the causes.
It is certainly undisputed that emotions have a strong influence on our organism.
We see patients who have fabulous lab results, no imaging abnormalities, and yet report feeling ill. They complai...

The missing link: Osteopathy and BICOM in treating chronic lower back pain

Jorge Costa, Osteopath, Aerospace Physiologist

Dear colleagues,

in today’s speech, I would like to give a new and complementary perspective on how to approach those extremely difficult cases regarding CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN (CLBP)
Epidemiology
Lower back pain is known worldwide as a public health problem, and is one of the main reasons patients resort to primary health care. Either for the therapeutic and diagnostic resources spent, or the high rate of disability it causes to patients, lower back pain is a real challenge for family physicians, making the thorough characterization of the multidisciplinary team associated with this condition a matter of the upmost importance.

The spectrum of disease and morbidity associated with LBP is broad. For many patients, LBP episodes are self‐limited and resolved without specific treatment. For others, however, back pain is recurrent or chronic, causing significant pain that interferes with employment and quality of life. Muscle‐ligamentar...

Fears, worries, panic attacks – possibilities for effective testing and successful treatment

Torsten Hartmeier, Naturopath, Lübbecke, Germany
All of us are afraid sometimes. Fear can actually help protect us by alerting us to potentially dangerous situations. There are times, however, when fear runs amok and permanently disrupts our daily lives long term.
Take a moment and imagine what life would be like for anxiety sufferers if they were no longer anxious. It is not difficult for us as therapists to imagine that overcoming anxiety would significantly change the lives of anxiety patients for the better.

All of us have to face our fears at some point. How we deal with our fears determines whether we experience our lives as an exciting adventure or whether we are trapped in our fears.

The question is: Where do fears come from in the first place?
Neuroscientists claim that we humans are the most anxious creatures on the planet. This is because we can learn with our mind, think with it, and also create fear with it (in the amygdala).
Furthermore, these experts say that the an...

Vitamin D – central pillar for the immune system – latest research findings

Dr. Jörg Schweikart, Economist, Nutritionist, Alternative Practitioner, Berlin, Germany
Introduction
Vitamin D deficiency is perhaps the most widespread vitamin deficiency in the world. Leading researchers in the field refer to this as a hidden epidemic that may lead to hundreds of thousands of premature deaths worldwide each year. A study conducted in Germany came to the conclusion that about 18,000 lives could be saved in Germany alone if the official bodies could decide to recommend vitamin D supplements generally. [1, 2]
The importance of vitamin D has come into sharper focus in the wake of the COVID‐19 pandemic, when numerous studies from around the world have consistently shown that the risk of contracting COVID‐19 and the risk of a severe progression correlate directly with vitamin D levels. [3, 4] Again, it is believed that widespread supplementation in the population could have saved tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of lives. At‐risk groups in particular can...

Cystitis – successful combination of bioresonance therapy, naturopathic ready‐to‐use drugs and micronutrients

Marcel Riffel, Naturopath, Ostifldern, Germany
Dear Colleagues,
Acute or chronic cystitis is a frequently encountered clinical picture in the practice of complementary medicine.
Patients can virtually always look back on a long history of antibiotics and come to our practice in a state of deep despair.
Today I would like to give you a few suggestions on how you can successfully treat this clinical picture in your BICOM® practice and which off‐the‐shelf medicines / micronutrients you can use for supporting treatment.
In the script, I would like to briefly discuss the epidemiology / causes / favouring factors / symptoms / diagnostics / therapy and complications from a conventional medical point of view, without explaining this in detail in the presentation. This is solely for you to be able to read it in your RTI booklet.
Epidemiology:
It mainly affects children, sexually active women and also men at an advanced age, often in connection with BPH.
In most cases, it is an ascending infe...

Possibilities in prevention and therapy of acute viral diseases

Sabine Rauch, MD, Deggendorf, Germany
General information about viruses

Viruses are the smallest known "living beings" with a diameter of between 15 and 300 nm.
Great adaptability: heat stable, cold stable and even survive drying processes.
They have no metabolism of their own; their reproduction can only take place in living cells.
They contain only DNA or RNA as genetic material; no cell division takes place, they reproduce only through their nucleic acid, or require the help of host cell ribosomes for replication.
In the extracellular resting phase, no cell growth takes place; in this phase, the virus binds to the receptor of the host cell.
Viruses can "disguise" themselves by taking a part of the cell wall with them and are therefore more difficult to detect.
They can replicate in one of two ways:

Incorporation into the genome of the host cell. The genetic code of the cell is thus altered and no more of its own cells are produced. Virus replication is assumed...
