Hamer’s 5th biological law merely restates his premise that every degenerative condition is part of an SBS created to assist the organism in resolving or healing a conflict/shock at the biological level. He summarizes this law as follows:
Blinded, we brought upon ourselves this senseless, soulless and brutal medicine. Full of wonder, we can now understand for the first time that Nature is orderly, and every occurrence in nature is meaningful, even in the framework of the whole, and that the events we call diseases are not senseless disturbances to be repaired by sorcerer’s apprentices. We can see that nothing is meaningless, malignant or diseased. (Markolin, 2010, p. 37)
This statement is completely aligned with the principles and philosophy of our Developmental Process Work and Developmental Systems Theory (Weinhold & Weinhold, 2010). We believe, like Hamer, that the Mindbody has a tremendous capacity for self-healing if provided with the support and tools to do so. Our DPW professional trainings advocate giving this kind of support to clients who are interested in healing developmental shocks, traumas and stresses.
