The Third Biological Natural Law
The so-called Compass of Germanische Heilkunde

Germanic Heilkunde - Introduction 1 

From the point of view of academic medicine, any cell proliferation is a case of a so-called „tumour“. This interpretation was and is wrong. Based on the First and Second Biological Natural Law (bi-phaseness), as well as with the help of embryology, I was able to discover the Third Biological natural Law of Germanische Heilkunde.
This law makes understandable why there are two different types of cell proliferation:
we differentiate between initial cell proliferation, i.e. tissue-plus (=tumour) of the original, archaic brainstem-guided tissue in the conflict-active phase, and the cell proliferation in the replenishment of previous necrosis or ulceration in the conflict-resolved phase. The latter cannot be named a “tumour”, but rather, cell replenishment.

I also succeeded in discovering that each of these tissue types is guided from a particular area of the brain and reacts to very specific conflicts either with cell growth, cell diminution or functional changes.

Here is a rough summary of the connections I discovered between the embryonic germ layers and the three levels (psyche, brain, organ):

Inner Embryonic Germ Layer (Endoderm)

The brainstem is the oldest part of our head brain, analogous to the organ brain. The brainstem essentially controls the entire gastrointestinal tract (with the exception of the later immigrated ectodermal parts) and its attached organs such as alveoli, liver, pancreas, uterus, prostate, kidney collecting tubules and salivary glands in the mouth.

Conflict: morsel conflicts

The smooth musculature has an exceptional placement because it is guided by a special part of the brainstem, the so-called midbrain (=transitional area between the brainstem and the cerebrum). As in the other organs guided by the brainstem, there is cell proliferation in the conflict-active phase, but in the pcl-phase the musculature is not broken down, but remains (e.g. the myoma on the uterus with stronger working muscles that assist during labour).
The archaic, oldest conflicts of our organism always concern a morsel, that is, of finding a morsel, swallowing a morsel, moving a morsel along, digesting and finally being able to excrete the faeces, respectively: e.g. the hearing-morsel (information morsel), the air-morsel (breathing-morsel), the food-morsel, the digestion of the morsel, the excretion of the faeces morsel or holding onto a water-morsel with a refugee or existence conflict, when the fish has been thrown on dry land.

Bi-phaseness at the organic level (with synchronous processes at the psychical and brain levels):

conflict-active phase (ca-phase): Tumour (tissue-plus)
conflict-resolved phase (pcl-phase): TB (Tumour breakdown)

Middle Embryonic Germ Layer (Mesoderm)

Organs which count as belonging to the mesoderm – please note that everything is precisely documented in terms of developmental history (ontogenesis) – we need to divide into two large groups: old mesoderm (guided by the cerebellum) and young mesoderm (guided by the cerebral medulla).

1st Old mesoderm (guided by the cerebellum): Corium skin, a part of which are breast glands, pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, nerve sheaths:

Conflict: Attack-conflict (integrity)
Bi-phaseness at the organic level (with synchronous processes at the psychical and brain levels):

conflict-active phase (ca-phase): Tumour (tissue-plus)

conflict-resolved phase (pcl-phase): TB (tumour breakdown)

2nd Young mesoderm (guided by the cerebral medulla): Glia, connective tissue, skeleton, triated muscles, lymph nodes, blood and lymphatic vessels, kidney parenchyma, ovarial parenchyma, testicular parenchyma, the vitreous body of the eye (partially ectodermal):

Conflict: Self-devaluation conflict

Bi-phaseness at the organic level (with synchronous processes at the psychical and brain levels):

conflict-active phase (ca-phase): Necrosis (tissue-minus)
conflict-resolved phase (pcl-phase): tissue restoration (tissue-plus: at the end more mass than before).

Outer Embryonic Germ Layer (Ectoderm)

We have to divide the parts of our organism belonging to the ectoderm into two large groups (guided by the cerebral cortex):

1st SBS with ulcers: Ectodermal pavement epithelium (sensitivity-course either according to AS-pattern or SS-pattern), which makes epithelial ulcers (tissue-minus) in the conflict-active phase (ca-phase) and repairs with restitution of the ulcers in the conflict-resolved phase (pcl-phase).

Here, it is a question of territorial or separation conflicts. For example: outer skin, milk ducts of the breast, cervix uteri and portio, seminal versicle, renal pelvis plus ureters, bladder, urethra, rectum and vagina, intima of coronary arteries and veins, intrahepatic and extrahepatic liver-bile ducts and gall bladder, intrapancreatic and extrapancreatic ducts, etc.

2nd SBS without ulcers, i.e. a meaningful functional impairment, changes without cell-loss or cell-augmentation, respectively. We observe functional impairment in the conflict-active phase (ca-phase), functional renormalization in the conflict-resolved phase (pcl-phase).

For example: hypoglycaemia, functional impairment of the alpha-islet cells of the pancreas and the liver (fear-disgust conflict), or of the beta-islet cells of the pancreas (diabetes, change or rather decrease of insulin, hyperglycaemia, resistance conflict), retina.

Some organs have constituent parts made up of different embryonic germ layers, making the subject somewhat more complicated.

Besides understanding the system and many important details, it is especially important to study the patient cases in Dr. Hamer's books in order to understand what the GERMANISCHE (GERMANIC) is and how to live in harmony with this knowledge (= the system discovered by Dr. Hamer).
