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

One possible cause of cancer

Edited by copyright Healing Cancer Naturally

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 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 which control our entire organism were of no interest.

From his personal experience--he himself had 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 origin of cancer, and not just any kind of stress. It requires a strong stimulus, a brutal psychological trauma, which hits the patient as a major event in his life, an acute dramatic conflict, lived in complete emotional isolation.

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

Diagnosing and treating thousands of individual cases over the last years allowed Dr Hamer to identify constants and formulate a law, always precisely verified, the Iron Law of Cancer, which has never been contradicted. This law of which the Dirk Hamer Syndrome constitutes the center piece, the keystone, reads 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 psychological 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 an 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 a cancer diagnosis 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 foci in the brain, occurring under the influence of new emotional 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 edema, 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.

Due to the reversal in the nervous system and the shift to vagotonia[1], 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 vagotonia may mislead an inexperienced doctor into diagnosing it as a worsening of the patient's health.

This regrowth is often accompanied by pain[2] and by these peritumoral edemas, for instance ascites (an accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity), wet pleura, periostal oedema, etc.

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, and circulation.

The swelling can be controlled by complete suppression of alcohol, cortisone, diuretics, coffee, and anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as ice supplied on the neck or the top of the head in some cases; this helps to hold in check the untimely results of a sudden overworking 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 obeyed the unwritten law that the patient should not suffer. Considered as the worst and most terrible symptoms immediately preceding death, the pain[2] suffered during the healing process seem intolerable for only a four to six week period, stopping spontaneously after two or three months.

It's important to realize that the patient's sensitivity to pain is very different if he knows it to be 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 lies in the fact that during a checkup, these encysted cancers may be misinterpreted.

A misdiagnosis 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 give 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 the swelling caused by the overworking of the parasympathetic nervous system via a sudden increased activity of the sympathetic nervous system.

Note: To gain a deeper understanding of the concepts hinted at above read on under The 5 Biological Laws of Nature in Dr. Hamer's New Medicine.


1 Vagotonia is the state of the autonomic nervous system in which the equilibrium between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system is biased towards the parasympathetic, the opposite phenomenon being sympatheticotonia. There is an associated clinical syndrome with low blood pressure, low heart rate, miosis, often cold hands and feet, a cold and clammy diaphoresis, severe fatigue, and sometimes vasovagal syncope.
