Interview with Dr. Hamer on The Germanic/German New Medicine

The following has been translated from a tape recording produced in German by "Amici di Dirk" Verlag, Koln, Germany in 1992.

It is meant as an introduction to Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer's "NEW MEDICINE" and his books "CANCER, DISEASE OF THE PSYCHE" and "LEGACY OF A NEW MEDICINE, Volume 1, The Ontogenetic System of Tumors including Cancer, Leukemia, Psychosis and Epilepsy".

This information will familiarise you with the subject of these books

It is also necessary in order to understand the tape recording in which specific diseases are discussed; for example, different kinds of cancers and cancer­-equivalent diseases.

Question 1 - Dr. Hamer, what prompted your research into cancer and making a connection between the psyche and disease?

I didn't really occupy myself with this until 1978. I was a doctor of internal medicine and had worked in university clinics for fifteen years, five of them as a professor. I also had my own private practice for a few years until 1978. Then a terrible thing happened: while asleep on a boat, my son Dirk was shot, for no reason, by a madman, an Italian prince. This was a terrible shock for me, sudden and unexpected, and I was powerless to react.

Everyday events or conflicts don't usually catch us so "off guard". We generally have a chance to anticipate the normal conflicts that we face in life, but the conflicts we are unable to prepare for and which cause this helplessness and inability to react, create, in essence, a. panic shock. We call these biological conflicts.

In 1978 1 developed testicular cancer from such a biological conflict, a so-called "loss conflict". Since I had never been seriously ill, I wondered if my condition had anything to do with the death of my son. Three years later, as chief of internal medicine in a gynecology-oncology clinic at Munich University, I had the opportunity to study female patients with cancer and to compare my findings to see if their mechanism was the same as mine; if they too had experienced such a terrible shock.

I found that all of them, without exception, had experienced the same type of biological conflict as I had. They were able to recollect the shock, the resulting sleeplessness, weightloss, cold hands and the beginning of tumor growth. At the time, my point of view was very different from all the current medical concepts, and when I presented these discoveries to my colleagues, they gave me an ultimatum: either to deny my findings or leave the clinic immediately.

Question 2 - It sounds like the Middle Ages! How did you react?

I couldn't deny what I believed to be the truth, so of course I left. This unjust dismissal caused me another biological conflict; I lost my self­ confidence. I vividly recall my frustration and disappointment at being expelled from the clinic for presenting well-researched, incontestable and new scientific knowledge. I had not thought such a thing possible. It was very traumatic and I had a difficult time examining the last two hundred patients. I finished my studies, however, and on the last day, the IRC - the IRON RULE OF CANCER - was born.

Question 3 - Perhaps you can explain in simple terms what the essential criteria of the IRC are?

The IRC is a biological law. It has three criteria. The first is that every cancer or cancer-equivalent ailment develops with a DHS. This is a very severe, highly acute, dramatic and isolating conflict-occurrence shock that registers simultaneously on three levels:

a) in the psyche
b) in the brain
c) on the organ
The DHS is the DIRK HAMER SYNDROME. I called it this because the shock of my son's death caused my testicular cancer. This DHS has since become the main focal point of the German New Medicine.

In every individual case of disease, we have to conscientiously find the DHS with all its variables. We have to think back to the specific occurrence to understand why someone has become afflicted with this biological conflict problem; the reason why it was so traumatic; why there was nobody to discuss it with and why it was a problem.
A good doctor has to be able to transpose himself into the soul of an infant, an embryo, an old man, a young girl or even an animal. He must transpose himself into the actual time of the DHS. Only then will he be able to discover the biological conflict and distinguish it from hundreds of other problems.

Question 4 - The IRC has two more criteria?

Yes. The second is that at the time of the DHS it is the conflict-content that determines (a) the HH, which is the specific location in the brain, and (b) the location of the cancer or cancer-equivalent in the body's organs. Each conflict has a very specific content that defines itself at exactly the same moment as the DHS. The product/result of the conflict-content is “associative", which means that it happens unconsciously and will therefore bypass our conscious understanding. For example, a driver involved in an accident whose truck loses all its oil, or a milkman whose truck loses all its milk, are examples of typical “water-related” or “liquid-related” conflicts. The association of the shock from the accident with the liquid causes a water­-related biological conflict that registers as a specific ailment - cancer of the kidney.

Question 5 - That means then that every conflict-content or event relates to a well-defined kind of cancer and is registered in a specific area of the brain?

Yes, a very specific relay in the brain. In the case of the kidney cancer caused by a water or liquid related occurrence, a short circuit occurs at the moment of the DHS in a pre-determined place in the brain, causing a problem in the right or left kidney, as the case may be.

This short-circuit, which shows up as a lesion on the brain, can be photographed with a computed-tomography (CT) and looks like the concentric rings on a target, or like a picture of a surface of water into which a stone has been dropped. Radiologists mistake these rings as a defect in the equipment. This relay in the brain is called the HH. This name, by the way, comes from my opponents who mockingly called these areas the 'Hamersche Herd' - Hamer's comical seats.

Question 6 - And what is the third criterion of the IRC?

The third criterion is that the conflict course corresponds with a specific course of the HH in the brain and a very specific course of cancer or cancer ­ equivalent disease in the organ.

In other words, this biological conflict strikes on three levels simultaneously: the psyche, the brain and the organ. It is now obvious and proven that the course of the conflict is synchronized on all three levels.
The point is that it is a pre-determined system in the strongest scientific sense because, if you know the exact location of any one of the levels, the other two can be found and unlocked. This means we have an organism that we can think of in three levels, but it is actually one unit.

The following story will illustrate this point: after a lecture I gave in Vienna in May 1991, a doctor handed me a brain computed-tomogram of a patient and asked me to disclose the person's organic state and to which conflict it belonged. There were twenty colleagues present, including some radiologists and CT specialists. Of the three levels, I had only the brain level in front of me. From these brain CT scans I was able to diagnose a fresh bleeding bladder carcinoma in the healing phase, an old prostate carcinoma, diabetes, an old lung carcinoma and a sensoric paralysis of a specific area in the body and, of course, the corresponding conflicts. The doctor stood up and congratulated me. “Five diagnoses and five hits. That's exactly what the patient has, and you were even able to differentiate what he has now and what he had before. Fantastic!" One of the radiologists told me " I'm convinced of your method. How could you have guessed the fresh bleeding bladder carcinoma? I could find nothing in the CT scan but now that you have shown us the relay, I can follow the findings."

Question 7 - Perhaps we could talk for a moment about the psychic level. How would I know that I have had a shock from which a cancer might result? How would I recognize it?

There are very specific signs which clearly distinguish the ordinary conflicts and problems in our daily lives. From the very first moment of a DHS, you would experience continuous stress on the sympathetic nervous system. The symptoms would include cold hands and/or feet, loss of appetite, weight loss, sleeplessness and dwelling day and night on the conflict content. This situation will only change when the conflict has been resolved. In contrast to normal everyday problems, we see the patient falling into a lasting stress phase that will cause specific symptoms and a growing cancer. The HH in the brain, which is immediately visible, shows that the patient's psyche has very precise, defined symptoms that cannot be overlooked.

Question 8 - What happens then, when such a biological conflict has been solved?

When a biological conflict has been solved we can see very clear symptoms, on the psychic level, the brain level and on the organ level. On the psychic and vegetative level, we see that the patient is no longer dwelling on the conflict content. Hands suddenly get warm again, appetite improves, weight normalizes and the patient sleeps better. There may also be fatigue and weakness and a need to rest. This is in no way the beginning of the end, but it's a very positive sign. This healing phase varies in duration, depending on the duration of the prior conflict. At the height of the healing phase, when the body retains a lot of water, we see the epileptic or epileptoid crisis, which shows a different symptom for every disease.

After the epileptic-epileptoid crisis, the body expels water from the edema (infiltration of tissues with water) and slowly returns to normality and the patient feels his strength returning. On the brain level we see the parallel development - where the HH in the conflict active phase showed a target ring configuration, during the healing phase it shows an edema. We can see on the CT scan how the rings of the HH darken and blur as the whole relay swells at this point in time. This epileptic or epileptoid crisis, triggered by the brain, marks the high point of the edema and, respectively, the turning point to normality. In the second half of the healing phase, the brain's harmless connective tissue, the glia, fills the HH to repair it. This really harmless connective tissue, which we can colour white on the CT scan with an iodine contrast substance, was previously mistaken as a brain tumor and operated on. Since the brain cells themselves CANNOT multiply after birth, REAL brain tumors cannot exist.
On the organ level we see that the cancer growth stops. This means that the biological conflict has been solved - we call this "conflictolysis". This is a very important perception that charts the therapy ahead. On the organ level we see very distinct healing improvements which we will discuss later. Even the epileptic crisis appears on the corresponding two levels as well as on the organ level (psyche, brain and organ).

Question 9 - Can you describe such an epileptic crisis?

The epileptic crisis is something Mother Nature devised a billion years ago. It runs on all three levels at the same time. It happens at the height of the healing phase, its purpose being to normalize again. What we usually call an epileptic cramp-spasm with muscle cramps is only one form of the epileptic crisis, namely, after resolving a motoric conflict.

Epileptoid crises occur in every disease but with some variations in each. Mother Nature created quite a trick for this meaningful event. In the middle of the healing phase, the patient experiences a recurrence of the physiological conflict, which means the patient experiences his/her conflict for a short time (stress phase) all over again including cold hands, centralized cold sweat and all the symptoms of the conflict active phase. This happens so that the brain edema gets suppressed and the fluid eliminated from it and the patient can return to normal.
After the epileptic crisis, the patient will warm up and then experience t
