Colic in horses: Part 1 (energetic diagnosis)

Colic is a collective term for diseases in the horse’s gastrointestinal tract. There are different forms, with different symptoms and causes. It usually involves flatulence, cramps, constipation and even intestinal blockages or intestinal obstruction. Colic can become a life-threatening emergency and requires immediate veterinary attention.

A distinction is made between different types of colic:

  • Spastic colic: caused by stress, feeding errors, poorly chewed food or worm infestation. These colics can resolve spontaneously or with medication, but can also turn into constipation (see below).
  • Gas colic: caused by flatulent feedstuffs such as clover, grass cuttings, beetroot, soft bread, maize, potatoes or by feedstuffs that are infested with fungi and/or bacteria. These colics can also lead to constipation (see below).
  • Sand colic: caused by sand deposits in the large intestine due to increased ingestion of sand in heavily grazed pastures or sand This can also lead to blockages.
  • Large intestine blockages: often caused by housing or feeding errors (too much straw, too little water and exercise, overeating, poor chewing). Constipations in the large intestine are usually milder in symptoms and can last for several days.
  • – Blockages in the small intestine: due to wrong feed (grass clippings) or due to bottlenecks in the intestine, sometimes also due to roundworms. In this case, surgery may be necessary.
  • Stomach overload: caused by too much swelling or fermenting food (primary stomach overload) or by a backlog of food residues, saliva and secretions from the small intestine leading to intestinal obstruction (secondary stomach overload). This is a life-threatening emergency with severe pain, respiratory and circulatory
  • Intestinal obstruction: Inactivity of the intestinal muscles leads to spasm or paralysis of the intestine, or obstruction by local obstructions (e.g. tumours) or suspension from the splenic-kidney ligament. Intestinal obstruction may also occur (e.g.: in stallions in the scrotum or other hernial cavities).
  • Intestinal twisting/entanglement: intestinal entanglement can occur due to feeding errors (faulty fermentation, gas or cramp colic),
  • where one part of the intestine rises up and another part sinks down due to overloading. When rolling or running, the intestine can then become

Colic symptoms:

  • Restlessness, pawing, looking at the abdomen or kicking under the
  • Frequent rolling, repeated lying down and standing up, reluctance to walk,
  • frequent bleating, sitting like a
  • Profuse sweating, circulatory and respiratory problems
  • Cramped abdominal muscles, refusal to eat, increased or decreased intestinal sounds or decreased bowel sounds

In the case of colic, the veterinarian must be informed immediately, who, depending on the severity of the illness and the type of colic, will apply appropriate treatment methods of a medicinal nature, partly through a naso-pharyngeal probe or rectally, or, in an emergency, will perform surgery.

In this acute condition, a detailed energetic diagnosis with the BICOM is not indicated. It is a real emergency and rapid action is required.

Until the vet arrives, therapies can still be carried out with the bioresonance method. Also a subsequent follow-up treatment or interval treatments for horses that tend to colic more often can be treated well with the bioresonance method. We will report on these therapeutic possibilities in the next newsletter.

This is followed by the testing of energetic blockages such as

  • Vertebral blockages, jaw joint, scars,
  • blockages caused by geopathic and radiation

and also blockages caused by vaccinations or

  • vaccinations or medication,
  • the metabolism or the acid/base

Testing of the KTT – test set 5 elements:

The large intestine is assigned to the element metal, therefore a resonance is usually found here during testing. But also the element earth can go into resonance, because the stomach, spleen and pancreas are assigned to this element and metabolic problems are often found here.

Testing programme                      ð 192.0 or 198.0. Input cup / tapping applicator                        ð Test ampoule only


Further triggering factors are to be tested with the help of the test sets from KTT and / or ETT:

  • Nutrition: Feed intolerances, (KTT – test kit: “Horses Special ” and “ETT – Basis C & D Veterinary”)
  • Environmental factors/chemical stress: Pseudo-allergy due to E-substances in feed (flavour enhancers, sweeteners, preservatives ), insecticides, pesticides, fungicides etc. in the food or environment.

(KTT – test set: “E – Substances” and “Parasites/Environmental Pollutants”).

  • Stress: due to lack of exercise, improper housing conditions,
  • Pre-existing diseases: Infections or stressful information due to parasites, bacteria, fungi or viruses, worm infestation or worming

(KTT – Test set: “Bacteria”, “Viruses/Fungi” and “Parasites/Environmental Burdens” and / or ETT – Basis D Veterinary”)

  • Hormonal disorders: Disturbances of the hormonal balance, e.g. in the pancreas, thyroid or pituitary/hypothalamus.

(KTT – Test set: “Hormones, organs, neurotransmitters, hereditary toxins” as well as the “ETT – Pancreas Set”)


Then, based on the blockages and stressful information found, a therapeutic regimen is put together and the owner is given appropriate nutritional recommendations for the animal patient. With the tested ampoules sensible combinations for an efficient therapy.

In addition to the energetic testing with the tensor on the animal-patient, BICOM programmes,

e.g. organs of elimination (liver, kidney, lymph, intestine, lung, etc.) can also be tested for an approval / resonance in order to treat them afterwards.

Through the Academy for Complementary and Informational Medicine, further training courses are regularly organised, also on these topics:


Seminar “Tensor testing”

Seminar “TCM – Nutrition and 5 Elements for the Bioresonance Method”

Seminar “Combined Test Technique (KTT) in Human and Veterinary Medicine”

Seminar “Treatment of the most common diseases of horses”
