Have you ever got sick when you go on holidays or take a break? Have you ever had a pain that keeps returning for no reason, or an injury that takes way longer to heal than it should.
I discovered German New Medicine (GNM) in 2014 when I was practicing as a Chiropractor, and it has literally changed the course of my life, and how I view the body, pains, and chronic conditions.
German New Medicine is not only a new paradigm of medicine, it is also a new consciousness. It is the awareness that our organism possesses an inexhaustible creativity and remarkable self-healing capabilities. It is the recognition that each cell of our body is endowed with a biological wisdom we share with all living beings.(1) German New Medicine is the groundbreaking work and years of studies of Dr. med. Ryke Geerd Hamer .
German New Medicine understands that all ‘diseases’ (except trauma, poisoning, malnutrition and parasites) are caused by an unexpected biological/emotional conflict. Something that is emotionally distressing and catches us off guard.
We understand that nature makes no mistakes, these ‘diseases’ are simply meaningful biological programs or adaptations that help the organism (you) cope with changes in the environment. These meaningful adaptations (changes in the body, whether it be pains, expansion in the lungs) occur in 2 phases. The stress phase and the healing phase.
Stress Phase: The stress phase is when your body is creating smart adaptations to the environment. This follows an unexpected biological conflict, you will be obsessing about the conflict that occurred. You will not be sleeping well, your appetite will be decreased, your hands and feet will feel cold.
Healing Phase: The healing phase occurs once/if the unexpected conflict has been resolved. This is when the meaningful changes that occurred during the stress phase (which were here to help you cope with the environment) are repaired or returned to normal.
The healing phase is typically when you get ‘sick’ or experience symptoms - getting a fever, pain, inflammation all occur in the healing phase.
This is the game changer right here.
The symptoms are actually meaningful. Once you can recognise that your body is working for you not against you, the way you think about your symptoms change.
German New Medicine allows you to pinpoint exactly what ‘disease’ correlates to what unexpected emotional conflict.
For example, lower back pain is whats know as a self devaluation conflict experienced as a ‘lack of support”, or the inability to give support to others. This typically shows up as:
“I feel completely unsupported”
“They really pulled the rug out from under me”
“I did not expect to be treated poorly”
“I am always sacrificing myself for others”
“I am bending over backward for this person”
You will notice the pain showing up in the healing phase. Interesting right?
Once you can view your pain as a meaningful adaptation to help you cope with a certain situation, you should start to see shifts in your pain levels.
