Psyche Brain Organ

When we suffer unexpected emotional distress, like an unexpected separation, a loss of a loved one, or sudden worries or anger, the brain organ triggers a biological emergency program to respond to the exact conflict shock being experienced.

German New Medicine (GNM) is based on the findings of Dr. med. Ryke Geerd Hamer. Dr. Hamer received his medical degree in 1961 from the University of Tuebingen, Germany. He was specialized in internal medicine and practiced at different University clinics in Germany. Dr. Hamer also shared a medical practice with his wife, Sigrid. Together, they raised four children.

The 18th of August 1978 was, in Dr. Hamer’s own words, the darkest day of his life. On that day, Dr. Hamer received the shocking news that his oldest son Dirk had been accidentally shot. Dirk died 4 months later in his father’s arms.

Shortly after Dirk’s death, Dr. Hamer was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Since he had never been seriously ill, he immediately assumed that the development of his cancer could be directly related to the tragic loss of his son.

Dirk’s death and his own experience with cancer set Dr. Hamer on an extraordinary scientific journey. At the time head internist of a German cancer clinic, Dr. Hamer began to investigate his patients’ histories and soon learned that, like him, they all had suffered unexpected emotional distress prior to their cancer development. But he took his research even further. On the basis that all bodily processes are controlled from the brain, he analyzed his patients’ brain scans and compared them with their medical records. This was an entirely new approach. Until then, no studies had examined the origin of disease in the brain and the role of the brain as the mediator between our emotions and a diseased organ.

What Dr. Hamer discovered was startling. He found that when we suffer unexpected emotional distress, like worries or anger, the brain triggers a biological emergency program to respond to the exact conflict shock being experienced. He established that the very moment the conflict occurs, the shock impacts a specific area in the brain causing a lesion that is visible on a brain scan as a set of sharp concentric rings. With the impact, the shock is communicated to the corresponding organ. Whether the organ responds to the conflict with the development of a tumor (cancer), a heart condition, or tissue loss as we see in osteoporosis or stomach ulcers, is determined by the exact type of emotional distress.

Let’s take, for example, colon cancer: The biological conflict linked to the intestine is, as Dr. Hamer calls it, an “indigestible morsel conflict.” Animals experience these morsel conflicts in real terms, when, for example, a chunk of food is stuck in the intestinal canal. In response to this potentially life-threatening situation, the intestinal cells immediately start to multiply. The biological purpose of the cell augmentation is to produce more digestive juices so that the food morsel can be broken down and can pass through. We humans inherited this biological response program. For us, an “indigestible morsel” can translate into an insult, a difficult divorce, a fight over money or property, or a court case that we cannot “digest.” Dr. Hamer found that when we experience such an “indigestible morsel” conflict, the same process of cell proliferation is initiated, controlled from the part of the brain that controls the colon. As long as a person is distressed about the “indigestible issue,” the cells keep multiplying, forming what is called a colon tumor. Conventional medicine interprets these additional cells as “malignant.” Based on thousands of case studies, Dr. Hamer shows that these additional cells (the tumor) are, in reality, “disposable cells” that are only useful for the time being. The moment the “indigestible morsel” can be digested, the superfluous cells are no longer needed and are removed with the help of bacteria or fungi.

Dr. Hamer also discovered that every “disease” runs in two phases. During the first, conflict-active phase, we feel mentally and emotionally stressed. Typically, we are totally preoccupied with what happened, we have cold extremities, little appetite, suffer sleep disturbances, and lose weight. If we resolve the conflict, we enter the healing phase, during which the psyche, the brain, and the affected organ undergo the phase of recovery. Since conventional medicine fails to recognize the two-phase pattern of every disease, many symptoms of the repair phase such as inflammations, fever, painful swelling, pus, discharge, blood in the stool, in the urine or in the sputum (particularly when a cancerous growth is broken down), or infections, are labeled as diseases although they are, in fact, manifestations of a natural healing process.

The therapeutic aspects of GNM are manifold. The first step is to determine whether the person is still conflict-active or already healing. If still in the active phase, the focus is to identify the original conflict, develop a strategy to resolve the conflict, and prepare the patient for the healing symptoms. During the healing phase, it is important to support the patient psychologically and, if necessary, medically. But above all, it is essential to understand the nature of the symptoms. Because understanding each symptom in its biological and biographical context allows us to free ourselves from the panic and fear that is often triggered with the onset of a disease.

Dr. Hamer’s research radically upsets the central doctrine of standard medicine, namely that diseases are a result of a malfunctioning organism. By providing clear scientific evidence that diseases such as cancer do not occur by chance but as a result of survival programs that have been successfully practiced for millions of years, Dr. Hamer shatters conventional medicine (including the medical industry) at its core. With GNM, questions like “why me?” or “why cancer?” are no longer a mystery.

Understanding Allergies

As summer is here, so is for many “allergy season.” I often asked myself: Why do some people get hay fever and others don’t? What factors determine whether we are allergic to certain pollen or to other agents such as animal hair, certain food substances, metals, feather pillows, mold, or cigarette smoke?

Over the last few decades, medical science has come up with numerous theories about what causes an allergic reaction. One of the most popular views is that we develop an allergy when our organism is exposed to an offending substance at a time when our immune system is weak. But why does one person react with a runny nose, another with asthma, and yet another with a skin rash?

Dr. med. Ryke Geerd Hamer, internist, medical researcher and originator of German New Medicine (GNM), explains the entire allergic process as a biological interplay between the psyche, the brain, and the corresponding organ. In 1981, Dr. Hamer discovered that every disease starts with a shock experience that catches us completely off guard. He called this unexpected conflict a DHS (Dirk Hamer Syndrome), in honor of his son Dirk whose tragic death initiated Dr. Hamer’s own cancer. Such an unanticipated event doesn’t necessarily have to be spectacular. It can simply be triggered by unanticipated anger or when somebody strikes us with an offending remark. Dr. Hamer found that at the moment we experience a DHS, the conflict shock impacts a specific area in the brain causing a lesion that can be clearly identified on a brain scan as a set of sharp target rings. The exact response on the organ is determined by which part of the brain received the conflict shock.

According to GNM, every disease has two phases. During the first, conflict-active phase, we feel mentally distressed, we have cold extremities, little appetite, and suffer from sleep disturbances. If we resolve the conflict, we enter the resolution or healing phase. This is the period in which the psyche, the brain, and the organ undergo the phase of recovery, an often difficult process with fatigue, fever, inflammations, infections, and pain.

When we experience an unexpected conflict shock, our mind is in an acute awareness situation. Highly alert, our subconscious picks up all components that surround the conflict such as smells, tastes, sounds, objects, or people and stores them until the conflict is completely resolved.

Symptoms that are typical for both the common cold and certain allergic reactions are nasal congestion, a runny nose, and sneezing. The nasal mucous membrane is controlled by a brain relay in the frontal lobe of the cerebrum. By analyzing thousands of brain scans, Dr. Hamer established that it is exactly this particular brain area that is affected when we experience a “This stinks!” conflict, as he likes to call it. His findings confirm that a “stink conflict” can be experienced in real terms, for instance through a sudden offensive smell, or in a figurative sense. At the moment the conflict occurs, the nasal mucosa begins to ulcerate, a process that usually goes unnoticed. What is noticeable, however, are the typical signs of the conflict active phase namely shivers, a loss of appetite, and a certain restlessness. But as soon as we resolve the conflict, often by leaving the environment or situation that “stinks,” the ulceration in the nasal mucous membrane gets replenished. The refilling of the tissue loss causes nasal congestion and often headaches due to the brain edema in the affected brain area that also tries to heal. Sneezing and a runny nose are therefore signs that the organism is finally getting rid of the residue of the repair process and, figuratively speaking, of what caused the “stink” to begin with.

When we experience an unexpected conflict shock, our mind is in an acute awareness situation. Highly alert, our subconscious picks up all components that surround the conflict such as smells, tastes, sounds, objects, or people and stores them until the conflict is completely resolved. In GNM, the imprints that remain in the aftermath of the DHS are called tracks. These tracks are most significant because if a person is already in the healing phase and suddenly sets on a track through association or real contact, the entire conflict relapses and the Biological Special Program with all the symptoms that belong to the particular conflict starts all over again. This is, in biological terms, an allergic reaction. So what is commonly called an allergy is in fact already the healing phase after the conflict relapse. The biological purpose of the allergy is to serve as a warning system that says: “In such a situation, you’ve had a DHS. Watch out!”

If someone is allergic to a certain food like peanuts, eggs, strawberries, or chocolate, the food substance was most likely consumed at the moment of the conflict shock. Now we have to be clear: When we leave the irritating substance out of the diet, it is NOT the avoidance of the food that cures the allergy but rather the avoidance of the tracks! If a person reacts to a certain pollen with a runny nose, we can conclude that the pollen in question was present when a “This stinks!” conflict took place. As long as the conflict is not completely resolved, the specific pollen will serve as a track and the “seasonal allergy” will recur year after year.

Tracks always have to be taken into consideration when we are dealing with “chronic” disorders such as arthritis, angina pectoris, asthma, hemorrhoids, or recurring infections. According to GNM, the term “chronic” indicates that we have fallen back into the same conflict again and again. In order to interrupt the continual relapse cycle and be able to complete the healing phase once and for all, we have to identify the track(s) that were laid together with the original conflict shock. Clues for the cause of the allergy are usually hidden in the “context” of the allergic reaction. All circumstances such as time, place, and the specific symptoms have to be carefully scrutinized. For instance, if a person suffers from migraines only on weekends, the source will most likely be found at the workplace. While there are no symptoms during the week, on the time off, away from the “culprit,” the organism takes the first chance to heal. By integrating GNM into our daily lives, we learn with growing gratitude the language in which Mother Nature speaks to us.
