Category — 08 - German New Medicine
I’m presenting this series of articles as a simple introduction to the extraordinary medical research of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer.
Dr. Hamer’s important and vast body of work is no less than a new discovery of natural science as it applies to human health and illness, based on five empirically discovered and documented laws.
His work tackles the problem of cancer and other chronic diseases, and gives us a new basis for understanding how and why disease arises, and where the real solutions lie. His book “Summary of the New Medicine” explains in detail the complete process.
The research shows exactly how emotional conflicts end up manifesting as physical disease, how the whole disease process can be understood as an adaptive mechanism, and how we can heal. For bringing that mind/body perspective into the realm of modern medicine, it’s an eminently valuable contribution.
German New Medicine, as it is called, is a new methodology so clear and logical that we would wonder how we could have accepted the old assumptions. Even in this short gist you may find all of your assumptions about disease and healing challenged. So be prepared for an interesting look at the old beliefs in light of this new research.. and in the spirit of the New Medicine, let’s see how those old beliefs might be reevaluated.

Part 1: Overview of Dr. Hamer’s German New Medicine
If we stood up to declare that the emperor of modern medicine has no clothes, we might be asking some of these questions:
What are the natural laws that govern disease, health and healing?
What is the real cause and process of disease, and why is modern treatment so hit-or-miss?
Why have we still failed to understand the basic principles of illness and healing, and have no real unified system of healing?
What is the big picture that we’re missing?
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, a German-born medical doctor, has some of those answers. In 1981, after twenty years of research with thousands of patients, he summarized his research with the statement, “I searched for cancer in the cell and I have found it in the form of a wrong coding in the brain.”
German New Medicine firmly, logically and empirically establishes that all diseases are initiated by a physical event that creates a biological conflict-shock. That trauma affects a corresponding area of the brain, which sends a signal to the corresponding tissue or organ. That area then develops either cancerous growth, tissue loss as in necrosis or ulceration, or loss of function as in paralysis or diabetes.
This means that the cause of cancer and many other diseases is an event that a person experiences as traumatic and isolating, involving either perceived or actual danger. Dr. Hamer discovered that if this “biological conflict” is resolved, the disease goes through a healing stage and it too is resolved. And this in turn means that medical treatment is often not necessary even for the diseases we have deemed most serious!
The type of disease that will develop depends on the type of conflict the person experiences, which corresponds with a particular part of the brain, which in turn controls the organ/system involved and determines whether canceration, ulceration or hypofunction will manifest. [Read more →]

Part 2: How and why disease develops: The conflict phase of disease
The way each person experiences the conflict-shock (DHS) determines where disease will develop.
Dr. Hamer found that the subjective nature of the DHS, the way the particular person experiences it, determines which organ or system will be affected. This means that a particular type of traumatic event could trigger different diseases in different people or at different times.
For example, a woman has a critical argument with her spouse, which she experiences as a conflict. Because the content of the conflict and its meaning is so subjective, she might interpret that event as a threat to her “nest”, symbolically. If so, she will express this conflict as a HH that affects the cerebellum. Then nerve signals from there are sent to her breast, which begins cancerating. But if the same event is interpreted as a sexual frustration, a different part of the brain would be affected, which corresponds to the cervix, and then pathological tissue changes will begin to occur in the cervix.
The Ontogenetic System of Diseases
After observing about 10,000 patients, and after comparing all their brain CT scans with histological data, Dr. Hamer made an astounding discovery - a pattern appeared that showed that in the CA phase, tissue begins either cancerating, ulcerating or hypofunctioning depending on the layer of the brain that was affected.

Part 3: The Healing phase and the role of microbes
The healing phase (PCL)
When the conflict is resolved and the CA phase is completed, as we’ve seen, the initial canceration, ulceration or hypofunction stops. Then, the reverse process takes over.
If in the CA phase we had a canceration, now the brain directs the body to manifest ulceration.
If in the CA phase we had ulceration, now that ulceration is filled in by means of canceration.
If in the CA phase we had hypofunction, now we have restored function.
According to Dr. Hamer these conditions are generally self-limiting and only get out of control when additional conflict shocks occur or the body is too old or weak or through the methods of conventional medicine. By contrast, natural healing methods aim to support body and mind during this trying time. Most healing proceeds without major problems, but about 10% need the full support of an experienced therapist, especially at the time of the healing crisis.
In the healing phase, not only are organs restored, but the HH itself is restored. With the help of microbes, as we’ll talk about next, the HH expands and swells, and this is the edema that is often mistaken for a brain tumor. Certain glia cells are produced to create this healing edema.
The Healing phase uses microbes as helpers.
We’ve heard speculations that the old germ theory is flawed, and that microbes such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi may play a vital role in detoxification and tissue regeneration.
Well, the New Medicine confirms these suspicions that most microbes are not just opportunistic bad guys that cause disease. The research has clarified exactly how these microbes work for us.
Most microbes are not the cause of disease, but actually helpful “seasonal workers” and our real allies. They are the optimizers of the healing phase. They help break down and eliminate the tumor cells that are no longer needed when the canceration CA phase has completed. And by the same token, they help build new fresh tissue when an ulceration CA phase has completed.
