Dr. Hamer’s Revolutionary Brain-Emotion-Disease Studies

One Possible Cause

Discovered...by the German doctor Ryke Geerd HAMER, confirmed on December 9, 1988, at Vienna University

In the habilitation script he presented at [Germany’s] Tübingen University in October 1981, Dr. HAMER summarized his research with this statement: "I searched for cancer in the cell and I have found it in the form of a wrong coding in the brain."

Until now, cancers were illnesses of the organs and as such, purely organically-symptomatically treated. The psyche and the brain from which everything in our organism is steered, were quite uninteresting.

From his personal experience--he himself has had a cancer-and from those patients he took care of in many university clinics, Dr. HAMER established over the years that there is always a definite syndrome at the source of cancer, and not just a kind of stress. It requires a strong stimulus, a brutal psychic trauma, which hits the patient as a major event in his life, an acute dramatic conflict, lived in a complete psychic isolation.

This initial syndrome, which he discovered and carefully verified in each of the c. 15,000 cases he has examined until now, he called DIRK HAMER SYNDROME (DHS), from his son's name, Dirk, whose tragic death in 1978 originated his own cancer.

The experience of those thousands of individual cases diagnosed and treated in the last years, allowed him to bring out constants and formulate a law, always checked precisely, the Iron Law of Cancer, which has never been contradicted. This law, whose Dirk Hamer Syndrome is the main piece, the keystone, states as follows:

1. Any cancer starts with a DHS, that is to say, an extremely brutal shock, a dramatic and acute conflict, experienced in loneliness and sensed by the patient as the most serious he has ever known.

2. It is the subjective meaning of the conflict, the way the patient experienced it at the moment of the DHS, its colouring, which determines:

a) the Hamer focus, that is, the specific area of the brain, which, under the influence of the psychic trauma, suffers a breakdown and thus induces an ill-proliferation of cells (cancer) in the organ dependent on this short circuited cerebral area;

b) the location of the cancer in the organism.

3. There is exact correlation between the evolution of the conflict and the evolution of the cancer on a double level: cerebral and organic.

A second or third conflict with DHS may follow in the wake of the first DHS. For instance the diagnostic of cancer can create a sudden fear of death, with round spots in the lungs, or a conflict of self-devaluation, with cancer of the bones: these are not "metastases" but new tumors caused by new Hamer's foci in the brain, occurring under the influence of new psychic trauma.

As soon as the conflict is resolved, there is an inversion of polarity, the breakdown in the brain (Hamer focus) is repaired by forming an oedema, whereas the cells whose anarchic proliferation was due to a coding error of the brain's computer, are no longer innervated by wrong codes and the tumor stops spreading (carcinostasis) and heals (peritumoral oedema), is encysted, transformed or ejected.

This regrowth is often accompanied by pain[1] and by these peritumoral oedemas, for instance ascites (an accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity), wet pleura, periostal oedema, etc.

Due to the nerve reversal and the shift to a vagotony the whole organism begins a long phase of regrowth with an oedematous swelling throughout the body (as with a pregnant woman), a return to normal sleep patterns, restored appetite and weight gain, a feeling of well-being experienced by the patient, although tiredness, and a weariness typical of vagotony may mislead an inexperienced doctor into diagnosing it as a worsening of the patient's health.

During the healing process, all kinds of cerebral complications may occur, according to the conflict's duration and location in the Hamer focus. The most difficult areas to deal with are those next to the vital vegetative centres responsible for the temperature, respiration, heart circulation.

The swelling can be controlled by complete suppression of alcohol, cortizone, diuretics, coffee, anti-inflammation medicine and ice supplied on the neck or the top of the head in some cases, helps to hold in check the untimely results of a sudden over-working of the parasympathetic nervous system. If several sites appear at the same time, with multiple swellings occurring, liquids must be strictly restricted.

Until now, doctors conformed to the unwritten law that the patient would not suffer. Considered as the worst and most terrible symptoms immediately preceding death, the pains[1] suffered in the healing process seem intolerable for only a four to six week phase, stopping spontaneously after two or three months.

It is important to realize that the patient's sensitivity to pain is very different if he knows it is a transitory phase of his illness, and some patients keep to the minimum amount of drugs if they can see hope at the end of the tunnel.

Probably three-quarters of the cancers caused by a DHS stop their evolution before they can be suspected, the conflict being prematurely resolved. The only danger is that, in a checkup, these encysted cancers may be misinterpreted.

A wrong diagnosis can then cause a panic reaction, a fear of death, that is a DHS producing round spots in the lungs. So the patient who has just escaped by chance, is thrown back into the therapy cycle.

The empirical method, and years of work leading to the iron law of cancer gives us several precious keys. Indeed, Dr. Hamer noticed that acute leukemia is exactly in accord with this iron law. It starts with a DHS and a severe conflict of self-devaluation ....

The epileptic outburst, provided there is no cerebral trauma, or congenital malformation, is a reaction of the organism trying to stop swelling caused by the over-working of the parasympathetic nervous system, by a sudden increased activity of the sympathetic nervous system.
