Genes Don’t Have the Last Word, Afterall

“A checkup two years ago revealed, to the astonishment of everyone involved, that Anna still has the complete Free Trisomy 21.”

In 1998, Anna, born with Down syndrome, overcame this “genetic disorder” through the application of German New Medicine (GNM).

Prior to her GNM Therapy, Anna was considered broadly incapacitated, both physically as well as mentally. Doctors had diagnosed her to be as much as 60 percent physically defective. This included partial paralysis of her legs. At the age of 4 and a half, her mental development and verbal skills were at the 1-year-old level. Anna’s parents had embraced all officially recognized treatments for special-needs children, but these had failed to produce results.

In 1998, Anna’s mother, a physician herself, contacted Dr. Hamer for advice.

Dr. Hamer: “It behooves a researcher to be modest. We must, therefore, guard ourselves against claiming that we could cure Down’s, even more so as only the patients themselves, supported by their family, would be able to do that. What we can say, however, is that we recognize in all the symptoms of Down’s natural Biological Special Programs we know how to work with. That is to say, if we get the Biological Programs into the healing phase, this would result in every single case in a normalization and thus in a healing of Down’s” (Vermächtnis einer Neuen Medizin [Legacy of a New Medicine], 1987, Vol. 2, p. 457).

The first step was to analyze Anna’s brain scan in order to identify what type of conflicts were involved. Among several others, the brain CT revealed two “hearing conflicts” (“I don’t want to hear this!”), visible as Hamer Foci in the areas of the cerebral cortex that control the right and left inner ear.

(Note: The two hearing conflicts had put Anna into a “schizophrenic constellation.” In GNM terms, a “schizophrenic constellation” refers to conflict activity involving both the right and the left side of the brain.

Whether a conflict impacts on the right or left side of the cerebral cortex is determined by the person’s biological handedness and whether the conflict is mother/child or partner-related. There is also a cross-over correlation from the brain to the organ.)

Anna’s first hearing conflict was caused by the constant “ear-shattering” noise of jackhammers in the building where her mother was working throughout her pregnancy. Since Anna is left-handed, her first mother-related conflict impacted on the left brain hemisphere, involving her right ear.

Her second hearing conflict was triggered by the screeching noise of circular saws from tree-cutting around the house. These noises persisted through the pregnancy and for some months beyond. In addition, Anna’s father, a church-organ builder, often used a circular saw in his workshop adjoining the house. This father-related hearing conflict impacted on the hearing relay on the right side of the brain, involving the left ear.

If the conflicts are intense, the Hearing Constellation causes extreme noise sensitivity and almost unbearable “hearing pain,” particularly when the individual is repetitively exposed to the sound wave frequencies of the conflict-related noise. For example, when Anna heard any loud noises, she would clap her hands to her ears. She reacted even more intensely to the noise of circular saws.

In GNM we also know that, if a child is “in constellation” while still developing, the maturity of the child typically stops at the age when the second conflict impacts in the other cortical hemisphere. However, the maturation is only put on hold. Once one of the two brain hemispheres is conflict-free, so to speak, the child is able to catch up in their development very quickly. This was the case with Anna.

Intra-Uterine Conflicts

Based on his comprehensive research, Dr. Hamer has established that the symptoms of Down syndrome result from biological conflict shocks suffered by the fetus in the course of the embryonic development, specifically during the first trimester of pregnancy.

In the human psyche, “hearing conflicts” correlate to age-old biological codes signaling potential dangers or threats. During pregnancy, a fetus can suffer biological conflicts just as much as any newborn, infant, child, or adult. Intra-uterine “hearing conflicts” can be caused by ear-piercing music, lawn mowers, noisy machines such as drilling tools held close to the belly, constant loud street noise particularly from trucks, motorcycles and car racing, or noise from saws or jackhammers, as in Anna’s case. Yelling and screaming in the immediate environment can also provoke the conflict. In the womb, any such noises are perceived particularly loudly because the fluid in the amniotic sac is a much stronger sound conductor than air is.

Naturally, every child is different, which is why loud noises do not automatically cause “hearing conflicts” or any other conflicts per se in every unborn child. Some are more sensitive than others. If conflicts should, however, occur, then it is the subjective experience that determines what symptoms manifest as a result of the particular shock. This explains why each child with Down syndrome has their own set of symptoms.

Research into fetal development leaves little doubt that during gestation a fetus feels and behaves no differently from a newborn. This includes the response of the fetus to noise. Pregnant women often feel a jerk or sudden kick from the fetus following a sudden loud noise, like a door slam, for example. Thus, the sound the fetus hears in the uterus during ultrasound procedures might well be far more harmful than we think. Dr. Fatemi of the Mayo Foundation’s Ultrasound Research Laboratory in Rochester, Minnesota, discovered that during ultrasound exams, the “fetuses are actually in an agitated state due to the loud noises they are hearing,” and that “ultrasound vibrations sound like the high tones of a piano, at about the same volume as an approaching subway train.” (Ultra Hearing Fetus ACF NEWSOURCE)

Since it is conventionally assumed that a woman’s risk of having a child with Down syndrome rises sharply after age 35, older mothers tend to undergo more ultrasound exams than women who are younger. Repetitive ultrasound procedures might, therefore, be the real reason why women of this age group are more likely to give birth to a Down syndrome child.

Together with hearing conflicts, a fetus can suffer one or several additional biological conflicts.

For example:

  • Motor conflicts. The fetus can perceive loud noises, including the ultrasound noise, as a threat, experienced as “not being able to escape” and “feeling stuck,” resulting in muscle atrophy and motor paralysis. Anna, for example, had a clumsy gait and often fell because of the partial paralysis of both legs.
  • Separation conflicts. Since in gestation, an unborn child is unable to differentiate between “harmless” noises, such as chainsaws or jackhammers, and noises which pose potential danger to himself or to his mother, the fetus can suffer an extreme fear of separation from the mother, particularly when the overwhelming noise drowns out the comforting sound of her heartbeat. Separation conflicts involve either the periosteum (skin that covers the bones) causing sensory paralysis (numbness) at the location where the separation was experienced, or the epidermis, resulting in neurodermatitis and other skin disorders.
  • Existence conflicts involving the kidney collecting tubules and the nerves that control the eye muscles. The latter cause the eye(s) to wander laterally. This is why Anna was born with strabismus exotropia, her left eye tending to pull outwards.
  • Fright conflicts affecting the bronchi or the larynx, including the speech center that controls the ability to speak.

If the umbilical cord is wrapped around the neck, the baby can suffer a “fear of suffocation.” This specific type of conflict involves the goblet cells of the bronchi. In embryology, goblet cells are considered residual intestinal cells. During growth and development of the respiratory system, the (endodermal) lung alveoli cells, created to process oxygen, form from the endodermal cells of the intestinal mucosa. The function of the goblet cells is to produce fluid in the bronchi, equivalent to the production of digestive juices in the intestines. Just as the intestinal cells proliferate with a biological conflict related to a “food morsel,” the goblet islet cells immediately increase in number in response to the shock of not getting enough air. The biological purpose of the additional goblet cells is to increase the fluid production in the bronchi so that the “air morsel” can be more quickly “digested.” During the healing phase, the goblet cells are broken down with the help of tuberculosis bacteria (if they exist in the microbiome). However, if the healing process is continuously interrupted by conflict relapses, this causes mucoviscidosis in the bronchi or so-called cystic fibrosis. The same can occur when the umbilical cord is cut too early because the lungs of the newborn need a certain amount of time to get used to independent breathing.

A common conflict triggered during a difficult delivery or by the way the newborn is handled is a territorial anger conflict, involving the bile ducts of the liver with hepatitis in the healing phase.

GNM in Practice

Dr. Hamer: “In German New Medicine, we have a very clear understanding of how to deal with biological conflicts. However, during my 40 years as a physician, I have seen hundreds of children with Down syndrome. I am by no means suggesting that treating a child with Down’s is an easy task. We also need to take into account that the therapy requires, first and foremost, the teamwork of the entire family, particularly of the mother. Also, we don’t know yet which symptoms are reversible and which ones are not. But at least we know now where to start, even if there is still a great deal of work ahead—both for the family and the assisting therapist—in order to get such a little person back on the right course. On the one hand, this seems almost impossible. On the other hand, the well-founded hope that there is now a real therapy available and that Down’s does no longer have to be considered “incurable,” can empower the family immensely” (Vermächtnis einer Neuen Medizin [Legacy of a New Medicine], 1987, Vol. 2, p. 455).

Research into fetal development leaves little doubt that during gestation, a fetus feels and behaves no differently from a newborn.

To help Anna resolve her hearing conflicts, the parents made every effort to remove her from all loud noises in her immediate environment, particularly from the screeching noise of circular saws. This was indeed a big challenge for her father, whose very job as an organ-builder required the use of saws.

The parents were richly rewarded. Within a few months, Anna’s physical and mental development improved tremendously. She grew a full 10 cm, her face lost more and more of the characteristic Down syndrome features, she walked normally, she was able to speak complete sentences, and her fear of loud noises was gone. She started to go to kindergarten, where she was fully integrated as a “normal” child.

Until then, such a remarkable recovery had been considered impossible. For Anna’s parents, it was a 100% validation of the accuracy of Dr. Hamer’s discoveries.

Trisomy 21

As all children with Down syndrome have a third chromosome attached to the 21st gene pair, medical researchers concluded that the additional chromosome 21 was the cause of Down’s and responsible for its distinct symptoms. The most common type is the so-called “Free Trisomy 21” in which every cell in a person with Down’s contains 47 chromosomes instead of 46. Anna was diagnosed with this chromosome type.

In the fall of 2009, the English translation of an article about Anna’s story from the Swiss magazine Zeitenschrift was posted on Shortly afterwards, we contacted Anna’s mother to request an update on Anna’s well-being, inquiring particularly whether any follow-up tests had revealed the status of the Trisomy 21. On October 19, 2009, we received, with much gratitude, a response.

Below is an excerpt from the letter. To protect the family, we will not disclose the name of Anna’s mother.

Dear Dr. Markolin,
I am very happy, indeed, to be able to tell you about our Anna and her most pleasing development. Anna is now 15 years old and is attending regular high school, assisted by a tutor. She can read and write (albeit with mistakes) and is quite good on the computer and calculator. Her social integration in school is going beautifully. Anna is a dear, sweet, open and communicative girl, who is very deft in handling the daily tasks of her life. As far as her appearance is concerned, many people don’t see at all that she has Down syndrome. This brings me to the matter of the genes. A checkup two years ago revealed, to the astonishment of everyone involved, that Anna still has the complete Free Trisomy 21.

This is revolutionary! The fact that Anna has improved so remarkably even though she still has the third 21st chromosome is a strong indication that the actual symptoms of Down syndrome are not caused by Trisomy 21 but by biological conflicts experienced before birth. It shows, above all, that symptoms are reversible if the related hearing conflicts are resolved.
