Hamer states that whether or not the body organ or tissue responds to the related conflict with cell proliferation or with tissue loss is predetermined by a biological pattern that correlates with the evolutionary development of the human brain. This is the core of his third biological law.
This law shows the correlation between the psychological conflict/shock, the brain and the organs or tissues within the context of the embryonic (ontogenetic) and evolutionary (phylogenetic) development of the human organism. This law also shows that the location of the HH in the brain and the cell proliferation or tissue loss following a DHS are not accidental, but are connected to three separate germ layers that follow a genetic plan of human development.
These three germ layers are the endoderm, the mesoderm, and the ectoderm. This is based on the basic biological principle that ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny. Hamer was able to show that some organs, such as the colon, are derived from only one germ layer. Others, such as the heart, liver, pancreas, and the bladder, are derived from multiple germ layers, which are controlled by widely separated parts of the brain. He calls these morsel conflicts. Figuratively they translate into conflicts involving not being able to contact a person; encountering an offending remark that is difficult to digest; encountering things that are not possible to possess, things that were lost or taken away, or things that we cant get rid of.
In addition, this part of the old brain is connected to conflict/shocks such as life-threatening conflicts; those dealing with loud, annoying noise; feeling excluded in some way; having to flee your home; having an unexpected hospitalization; and experiencing ugly conflicts with the opposite gender.
Conflict/shocks linked to endoderm tissues involve the lungs, the organs of the alimentary canal, the prostate, and the uterus. Conflict/shocks linked to the old brain mesoderm include the skin, the breast glands, the lining of the abdominal cavity and abdominal organs, and the skin that covers the heart. In the mesoderm tissues, the issue of laterality has to be taken into account because of the crossover correlation from the brain to the organ. For example, a right-handed woman with a conflict with her child would have her right hemisphere affected and her left breast would show the tissue damage in the conflict active phase.
Conflict/shocks that are derived from the new brain mesoderm involve the bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments, connective tissue, fat tissue, the lymphatic system, blood vessels muscles, the striated heart muscle, the adrenal cortex, the kidneys, the spleen, the ovaries, and the testicles.
Hamer found that conflicts linked to the new brain mesoderm tissues relate predominately to ‘self-devaluation conflicts such as the failure to perform a task, failing an exam, being put down or demeaned by somebody, the profound loss of a loved one (including a pet), a near drowning incident, making a wrong decision, an injury involving heavy bleeding, or feeling completely overwhelmed.
If something blocks the completion of the process in the healing phase, the person might develop symptoms that are mistakenly diagnosed as lymphoma, adrenal cancer, osteosarcoma, ovarian cancer, testicular cancer, or leukemia. If the healing process is interrupted by reenactments of the original conflict/shock, chronic conditions such as varicose veins, arthritis, or spleen enlargement may appear.
The ectoderm or third germ layer, controlled by the cerebral cortex, connects to the second or epithelial skin found in the mouth, the rectum, and the lining of certain organs. The kinds of conflict/shocks that correlate to this germ layer involve:
- sexual rejection or frustration,
- not feeling like you belong, a fright or scare within your home,
- fear of losing your home or actual loss of it,
- a fear of getting angry,
- feeling stuck or not being able to escape something dreaded,
- a fear of heading in a dangerous direction,
- a fear of being threatened from behind,
- and other conflict/shocks involving the sensory
Hamer also recognizes the importance of laterality and gender in the ectoderm or third germ layer in his paradigm. For example, a left-handed man with a separation conflict with his mother will be affected in the left hemisphere and that will manifest as a skin rash on the right side of the body during the healing phase.
During the healing phase certain so-called cancers may appear that involve the breast, bronchial system, larynx, cervix, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Chronic conditions such as skin rashes, hemorrhoids, colds, bronchitis, laryngitis, jaundice, hepatitis, cataracts, goiters, hypoglycemia, diabetes, visual and hearing impairments, and sensory-motor paralysis may occur because reenactments of the original conflict/shock disrupt the healing process.
According to Hamer, all of these conditions will eventually clear when the conflict-healing phase is complete, and any hanging conflicts due to reenactments of the original conflict are healed.
