Dr. Ryke Hamer founded German New Medicine after extensive research and a therapeutic practice as an oncologist dating back to 1979.
His paradigm contains Five Biological Laws that he claims totally invalidate the concept of diseases. The First Biological Law: A Redefinition of Disease.
In his first law, Hamer redefines diseases as Significant Biological Special Programs of Nature (SBS) created specifically by the body to assist an individual who has experienced an unexpected, highly acute conflict/shock or DHS. That shock is registered immediately in the psyche, the brain, and the corresponding organ connected to that part of the brain.
Through CT scans Hamer determined that the impact of the unexpected conflict/shock immediately creates sharp concentric rings in a very specific and predetermined area of the brain he calls the Hamer Focus or HH. The exact location and the size of the HH in the brain are determined by the nature and intensity of the conflict.
The exact location of the HH in the brain is determined by a person’s perceptions and feelings that are related to the unexpected conflict/shock. The moment the conflict/shock happens, a signal is sent to the organ or tissue that is connected to that part of the brain and an SBS is created to protect this organ or tissue from the possible effects of the conflict/shock.
Hamer also discovered that a single biological conflict/shock can have multiple elements that impact more than one brain area and consequently different organs or tissues. Western or allopathic medicine mistakenly refers to this multiple impact phenomenon as metastasis.
