HOMOEOPATHY AND GERMAN NEW MEDICINE: TWO GERMAN SIBLINGS
Introduction:
Medical science is a perfect example of unity in diversity. Various therapeutic methods in the medical science make it more glorious in its own way. Since many years, its different healing systems provide a great aid to suffering humanity. German New Medicine like Homoeopathy is one of the gentle healing methods. As siblings, they have some common features as well as their own unique features. So, let’s explore a unique relationship between these two siblings.
Keywords: Homoeopathy, German New Medicine (GNM), Healing methods
This relation is explained in the following ways.
1) Holistic aspect:
Both therapeutic methods are believed in holistic concept of body. The disease condition in Homoeopathy and conflict in GNM are very similar in expression as they are reflecting on mental as well as physical level also. In Homoeopathy, Mind, Body and Soul are one of the important trios to understand the Homoeopathic philosophy. While in GNM, Psyche, Brain, Body are important aspect in learning the GNM. Let’s see these trio in their founder’s language,

• Homoeopathy:
Dr. Hahnemann in his oragnon of medicine, 6th edition mentioned about a unity of materialistic body and vital force. Last lines of aphorism 15 are as follows, “…although in thought our mind separates these two unities into distinct conceptions for the sake of easy comprehension.

• German New Medicine:
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, founder of GNM said that, “The differentiation between psyche, brain and the body is purely academic. In reality, they are one.”

2) Disease origin concept:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, disease originates from the dynamic disturbances and followed by functional and pathological changes.

• German New Medicine:
In GNM, morbid condition starts from conflict in the psyche level and later it reflects on body. The common feature is the disturbance is at the all levels of man.

3) Cause of disease:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, among the web of causations, psyche (mind) is also considers as a cause of disease.

• German New Medicine:
So, in GNM, psyche is playing important role in cause of disease. When Conflict starts, its dynamic effect perceived first at mind level.

4) Individuality:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, diathesis is a predisposition for disease condition. i.e. According to the diathesis every individual suffers with their own individual morbid dispositions. Rheumatic diathesis, gouty diathesis, etc. are the examples of diathesis.

• German New Medicine:
In GNM, every individual suffers from the disease condition after the receiving conflict. It is different and depending upon the type of conflict they are receiving. E.g. lung cancer- death fright conflict, cervical cancer –female sexual conflict.

5) Side affinity concept:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, provings and clinical experiences decide the side affinity of remedies for body. It is for general as well as particular symptoms. Side affinity of remedy helps a lot in understanding the remedy profile as well as individualization during prescriptions.

• German New Medicine:
This side affinity is also important in GNM. Clapping and walking like gesture activities are the techniques used by GNM experts to understand side affinity and effect of conflict on body side. Many Homoeopaths are using these techniques in their day to day practice and considers as a good observation skill.

6) Body’s own healing mechanism:

• Homoeopathy:
Dr. Hahnemann in his book “Organon of medicine” had mention about the regulatory and defensive role of vital force towards the morbid process. in aphorism 72, he mentioned about the defensive role of vital force and later on origin of chronic morbid process when vital force exhaust itself in this regulating process. In aphorism 76 again he mentioned that morbid condition arising from over medication (drug disease) could only be corrected by vital force. So, these are the example of understanding of vital force’s works.

• German New Medicine:
In GNM, on studying GNM compass thoroughly we can understand the conflict phase as well as healing phase followed by crisis to regulate the normal Homeostasis.

7) Symptom’s understanding:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, symptoms are the reflection of dynamic disturbances that are thrown by vital force is to defend against the morbid process. Symptoms on the body are secondary to the disturbance and considered under the body’s healing mechanism. Perceiving of symptoms thoroughly result in good understanding of morbid process. After understanding of these morbid phenomena one can manage the case very well.

• German New Medicine:
Dr. Caroline Markolin, mentioned about Dr. Hamer’s view on disease with an article named “what is disease?”. Some lines from that article gives us better understanding of the concept of GNM. These are as follows, “Dr. Hamer also discovered that every “Disease” runs into two phases. During the first, conflict-active phase, we feel mentally and emotionally stressed. Typically, we are totally preoccupied with what happened, we have cold extremities, little appetite, suffer sleep disturbances and lose weight. If we resolve the conflict, we enter the healing phase, during which psyche, the brain and the affected organ undergo the phase of recovery. Since conventional medicine fails to recognize the two phase pattern of every disease, many symptoms of the repair phase such as inflammation, fever, painful smelling, pus, discharge, blood in the stool, in the urine or sputum (particularly when a cancerous growth is broken down), or infections, are labeled as diseases although they are in fact, manifestation of natural healing process. “

8) Laws of healing systems:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, cardinal principles or natural laws are strong pillars on which this healing system is firmly stands in medical field.
These are as follows;
Law similia similibus curentur
Law of minimum dose
Law of single remedy
Law of dynamization
Law of vital force
Law of chronic disease

German New Medicine:
In GNM, 5 biological laws are main stem of GNM.
1) The Iron rule of Cancer.
2) Two phased nature of disease condition in conflict.
3) Deals with embryonic germ layers (ontogenetic system of disease).
4) Deals with microbes (law for infectious diseases).
5) The quintessence

9) Treatment part:

• Homoeopathy:
In Homoeopathy, treatment includes following parts:
 Counseling of the Patient.
 Prescription with dynamically acting similar Medicines/material doses of Mother tinctures.

• German New Medicine:
In GNM, this is regarding awareness. Dr. Hamer: “If the patient has been made aware of all the facts, he will no longer need to get frightened by his symptoms. He can now fully accept these as the healing symptoms they are all of which had until now caused fear and panic. In the greatest number of cases, the whole episode will pass without any serious consequences.”
This gives a better idea about the awareness and earlier healing.
Conclusion:
Some similarities and with some own characteristics, these two healing methods are developing at a good length in medical science. The main aim of these both methods is – “to serve the suffering humanity in gentle way”. This article is intended to present for those students and practitioners who are believing in gentle healing and developing their own unique case management skills with the application of HOMOEOPATHY AND GERMAN NEW MEDICINE in their practice.
