German New Medicine

I was recently reminded that none of my research for the third edition of UnBreak Your Health has ever seen the light of day since we never published it.  One of the most interesting new additions was going to be on German New Medicine.  Here's what I'd written:

In 1978 Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, M.D. was head internist in the oncology clinic at the University of Munich, Germany when his son was shot and killed.  Months later he developed cancer and he thought that the shock he’d received might be the cause of the cancer.  His research showed that all of his cancer patients had also experienced some type of major upset prior to their cancers.  He also learned that “conflict shock” could be traced to a particular part of the brain and a correlation with the organs of the entire body.  Dr. Hamer called his findings “The Five Biological Laws of the New Medicine” which offer a new understanding of the natural healing process of diseases.
          To honor his son, Dr. Hamer called such an unanticipated stressful event a Dirk Hamer Syndrome or DHS.  But a DHS isn’t just a psychological event, it’s really a biological conflict that needs to be understood on the basis of evolution.  It’s an experience which we were not prepared.  This is the First Biological Law.
          The Second Biological Law says that the resolution of the conflict progresses in two stages.  The first or conflict-active stage says that the entire organism is dealing with the conflict.  This features sleep disturbances and reduction of appetite which are necessary to process and handle the unexpected situation.  The second stage has the organism shifting to a healing mode with renewed appetite.
           The Third Biological Law states that the cell loss or proliferation in the brain following a DHS are a meaningful part of the biological system.  The Fourth Biological Law says that microbes don’t cause diseases but instead play a critical role during the healing phase.  The Fifth Biological Law says that Nature is orderly and that nothing is meaningless or malignant.  Every so-called disease is a part of a Significant Biological Special Program of Nature.
