What is Cancer?

There are many theories out there which attempt to make sense of why a cancer is produced in the body.  Here are just a few examples:

  • Tissue acidity
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Immune deficiency
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Malnutrition
  • Toxic accumulations
  • Stress of the body and/or psyche
  • Infectious microbes

No doubt that any of these can contribute to what can be called the "allostatic load".  A human being is a biological system which is subject to carrying various physiological burdens which create a weakened state and thus increased tendency toward imbalance.

The most impressive model of understanding about cancer and most other disease that we have discovered is that of Geerd Hamer (MD) of Germany.  His ideas are absolutely revolutionary regarding the nature of cancer and provide an opportunity for each of those afflicted to recontextualize their cancer experience and optimize their recovery.

In the Spring of 2006 we set out to prove that Dr. Hamer’s assertions regarding cancer (and most other disease) were incorrect.  After having received some initial training and applying these concepts to our patients for several months we were confronted with an abundant amount of empirical evidence supporting Hamer’s ideas.  Our most basic assumptions regarding cancer had been incorrect!  This paradigm turns conventional medicine and even much of alternative medicine on its head, but once an understanding of the process is grasped, it points the way in terms of choosing various diagnostic or therapeutic interventions.

In order to maximize one’s success in navigating a given “dis-ease” process, it can be of tremendous benefit to familiarize with the basic principles of what is now called “German New Medicine” or GNM.  Refer to the links below for an introduction.
