Canadians Beware! Biologie Totale: Hamer’s German New Medicine in Canada

Claude Sabbah

The New German Medicine (GNM), Ryke Geerd Hamer’s extremely dangerous quackery, has landed in Canada under a new name: Biologie Totale, led by Claude Sabbah. (Pour lecteurs français, nous avons ajouté un resumé ci-dessous de ce que comprend la Biologie Totale.)

Although both Hamer and Sabbah claim that their theories are very different from each other, in reality they are very alike: both claim that all diseases, without exception, are caused by a sudden psychological trauma and can only be cured with either the GNM (says Hamer) or the Biologie Totale (says Sabbah).

German New Medicine (GNM) and Debunking Hamer on Cancer Metastasis: Slam Dunk

Ryke Geerd HamerRyke Geerd Hamer, inventor of the German New Medicine, claims that there is no such thing as cancer metastasis.

Hamer also claims that cancer does not spread through the bloodstream.

However, these claims can easily be checked out, and that is just what jli, our pathologist, has done in this post.

Psychological Trauma, Stress, Cancer and German New Medicine: Time to Move on, Mr Hamer!

Very special Hamer medical deviceDe-licensed German physician Ryke Geerd Hamer claims he can cure cancer without surgery, radiation or chemotherapy.

He states that cancer is always caused by an (unexpected) emotionally traumatic event – which he calls a “biological conflict” and the only way to cure it is by solving this “conflict” through a special protocol of his own invention.

It isn’t exactly rocket science to establish that he is very wrong, both about the cause of cancer and the best way to treat it.

If  Hamer is right, then cancer and emotional trauma are always causally related. But science shows that this is not the case:

German New Medicine (GNM) and what Hamer Doesn’t Tell You: Six Stupid Questions on Cancer Metastasis

Caroline MerkolinThere is a website called ‘Learning German New Medicine.’ This website was built by Caroline Markolin, a Canadian Hamer proponent and is said to have received the master’s official approval. The website is the GNM’s learning zone, so to speak.

In the navigation on the left there is a tab called ‘Standard Theories’. When you click on that, you’ll see a tab on ‘Metastasis.’  The greater part of this page is filled with long, rambling and incoherent arguments of which I can make neither head nor tail, although I fear that it is exactly this pompous incomprehensibility which will impress a lot of people.

Six Questions

At the bottom of the page, Hamer tells us to ask ourselves six “common-sense questions” on metastasis.

German New Medicine (GNM): Hamer House of Horrors

The notion that our emotional state plays an important role when it comes to developing or curing cancer is widespread, although scientific evidence does not support this.

A very scary perversion of this idea is the German New Medicine of de-licensed German physician Ryke Geerd Hamer. He claims that a sudden psychological conflict is the cause of all cancers, of which we can only be cured by solving the underlying conflict according to the principles of the “German New Medicine”.

Alternative Cancer Treatments: The Deadly Dangers of Magical Thinking

the_lorelei6Magical thinking is the assumption that if I do this, then that will happen. It is an illogical thought pattern that involves linking unrelated actions or events.

Things like emotional stress and events of great personal significance can push us toward magical meaning-making.

Magical thinking is widespread and most of the time it’s harmless, such as the use of mascots in sports. But there is a tipping point, beyond which it can become quite sinister and even deadly.
