Therapeutic procedure and equipment settings (see below) were standardized. Using the bioresonance device MORA-Super (Med-Tronik GmbH, Friesen- heim, Germany), the standard therapy was carried out as described below: Before starting the treatment, the test subjects were requested to smoke 2 half cigarettes and fill the cigarette ash and the remaining halfs of both cigarettes smoked into 2 glass tubes. The glass tubes containing cigarette butts and ash were then separately placed into the bioresonance device's input electrodes MT1 and MT2. In a second step, the bioreso- nance treatment was carried out (approximately 45 min). The test subjects were connected to the hand and foot electrodes of the bioresonance device. An electrode for the head, providing 2 adapters, was positioned on the subjects' forehead and connected to the additional contacts for the left and right hand electrodes, provided at the rear of the device. A round-shaped magnetic electrode was attached 3 cm below the $QDO VHG Q   $QDO VHG Q   test subjects' navel, and an additional external amplifier (amplification = 1,000) was connected to the output. The respective input of the amplifier was connected to the contact for right foot, provided at the rear of the Fig. 1. CONSORT flow diagram.

performing party recorded which test subject received which treatment, but was unaware of the outcome of the individual program combinations. The performing party had no experience in bioresonance therapy, no training in the operation of the device, and was only able to set the speci- fied programs. He neither knew how to handle the electrode settings nor what they stand for, or what the programming entails. No other party in- volved knew, which programs were being applied in which manner. Nei- ther the performing nor any other involved parties maintained further contact with the test subjects. Test documentation was not revealed until the study has been completed and analyzed. In the process of both the active as well as simulated bioresonance treat- ments, a so-called chip was used as carrier substance. This chip was made of a round-shaped disk of 1 mm thick stainless steel with a diameter of 2.5 cm, and was placed on the bottom of the output electrode twin beaker.
In the course of treatment, a glass bottle containing 92 parts of physi- ologic saline solution and 8 parts of ethanol-water solution were used as  ,I RXKDYHVPRNHG RXUILUVWFLJDUHWWH carrier substance, being administered by drops. While the program was executed, the respective glass bottle with the preparation was placed in the same twin beaker mentioned above. At the end of the bioresonance treatment, the respective chip was fixed to a spot 2 fingers below the test subjects' navel using medical tape (meridian: Ren Mai; acupuncture point: Qi Hai) for 1 month. The test persons were asked to instill 5 of the aforementioned therapeutic drops beneath their tongue, whenever they felt the need to smoke. However, the subjects were also informed not to take more than 30 drops a day; otherwise there would be a risk of exacer- bation of withdrawal symptoms, similar to an excessive dose of remedies in homeopathy.
Programs and Electrode Wiring of MORA-Super Device The programs used in the course of therapy were extended MORA programs as described in the following.
