Welcome to the new episode of our German New Medicine 101 series! In today's post, we'll talk about intestinal diseases and the emotional conflicts causing them based on GNM principles.

For newcomers, GNM is a holistic approach that views diseases as meaningful responses to emotional and psychological conflicts, not just random body malfunctions. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer founded GNM after his own illness following a personal tragedy. He discovered that our bodies and minds are deeply connected, and emotional stress can lead to physical symptoms. By understanding this connection, we can better care for our health by addressing both our emotions and our physical well-being.

Understanding The Functions Of Intestines

German New Medicine 101: Intestines - SageSistas

The intestines are a crucial part of the digestive system, playing a vital role in processing the food we eat and maintaining overall health. They are divided into two main sections: the small intestine and the large intestine, each with distinct functions.

Digestion: In the small intestine, digestive enzymes break down food into smaller molecules, such as amino acids, fatty acids, and simple sugars, making it easier for the body to absorb these nutrients.

Absorption: The nutrients from digested food are absorbed through the walls of the small intestine into the bloodstream, which then transport them to various parts of the body where they are needed.

Waste Elimination: The large intestine is responsible for absorbing water and electrolytes from the indigestible food residue, transforming it into solid waste (feces). The solid waste is then moved to the rectum and eventually expelled from the body through the anus during defecation.

The Connection Between the Psyche and the Intestines

In German New Medicine (GNM), the health of the intestines is closely linked to our emotional and psychological state. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, the founder of GNM, proposed that specific emotional conflicts directly impact the intestines, leading to various physical conditions. This connection is rooted in the belief that our body and mind are intrinsically linked, and emotional disturbances manifest as physical symptoms.

How Emotional Conflicts Affect Intestinal Health In GNM

According to GNM, different types of emotional conflicts can affect the intestines. Two common types are:

Indigestible Anger: This type of conflict is related to situations or experiences that are hard to "digest" emotionally, such as intense anger or frustration. When we are unable to resolve or process these feelings, they can manifest in the intestines, leading to symptoms like inflammation, ulcers, or spasms.

Fear of Abandonment: Feelings of being abandoned or isolated can also impact intestinal health. This emotional conflict often leads to issues in the large intestine, manifesting as problems like constipation or diarrhea.

What Is The Conflict-Active Phase In GNM?

When an individual experiences a significant emotional conflict, the body enters the conflict-active phase. During this phase, the specific organ or tissue associated with the conflict undergoes changes. In the case of the intestines, this might include increased cell growth (for better digestion of the "indigestible" situation) or ulcers (to help "digest" the issue).

Common Intestinal Diseases and Their Emotional Conflicts In GNM

In German New Medicine (GNM), various intestinal diseases are believed to be linked to specific emotional conflicts. Here are some common intestinal conditions and the emotional conflicts that may trigger them:

1. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Emotional Conflict: Often related to unresolved issues and "territorial anger" or a feeling of being overwhelmed by a situation that one cannot digest or resolve.

The intestines react to this conflict by causing symptoms like alternating diarrhea and constipation, abdominal pain, and bloating as the body attempts to process the unresolved emotional turmoil.

2. Crohn's Disease

Emotional Conflict: Typically associated with an "indigestible morsel" conflict, where something in life is hard to accept or digest emotionally. This can also relate to boundary issues and conflicts regarding personal territory.

The inflammation and ulceration seen in Crohn's Disease are viewed as the body’s attempt to handle the difficult-to-digest emotional situation.

3. Ulcerative Colitis

Emotional Conflict: Related to feelings of abandonment, isolation, or being left alone to deal with difficult situations. It can also involve conflicts related to feeling dirty or unclean.

The ulceration and inflammation in the colon are seen as the body’s response to these emotional conflicts, attempting to heal the perceived wounds.

4. Constipation

Emotional Conflict: Often linked to holding onto old beliefs, fears, or unresolved emotions. It can also be related to feelings of being stuck in a situation or unable to let go of the past.

The body’s inability to eliminate waste mirrors the emotional state of holding onto something that needs to be released.

5. Diarrhea

Emotional Conflict: It can be associated with a desire to quickly get rid of something unpleasant, whether it’s an emotional issue, a situation, or a relationship.

The rapid elimination of waste from the body reflects the urgent need to purge or cleanse oneself of the emotional conflict.

6. Colorectal Cancer

Emotional Conflict: Typically involves deep-seated feelings of "indigestible anger" or issues related to one's "territory" or personal space being violated. It can also be related to survival conflicts and fear of not being able to hold onto resources or loved ones.

The growth of cancerous cells is seen as the body’s biological response to an intense, unresolved conflict, attempting to deal with the "indigestible" emotional issue.

7. Diverticulitis

Emotional Conflict: Associated with feelings of being ignored or sidelined, or having aspects of one's life compartmentalized and neglected.

The formation of diverticula and subsequent inflammation is viewed as the body’s way of dealing with the emotional conflict of feeling overlooked or neglected.

8. Appendicitis

Emotional Conflict: Typically related to a "fear of being attacked" or feeling threatened in one's territory. It can also involve unresolved fear or anger.

The inflammation of the appendix is seen as the body's response to this intense fear or anger, aiming to address the emotional conflict.

9. Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolarance

Emotional Conflict: Linked to feelings of being powerless or unable to digest a particular situation or event in one's life. This can include conflicts related to food or nourishment on an emotional level.

The body's immune reaction to gluten is interpreted as a response to the emotional conflict, manifesting as an inability to digest certain proteins.

10. Peritonitis

Emotional Conflict: Often associated with a "fear of attack" on the abdominal area or conflicts involving fear for one's life. This can also include severe shock or trauma.

The inflammation of the peritoneum is viewed as the body's acute response to these intense emotional conflicts, attempting to protect the abdominal area.

The Healing Phase In GNM

Once the conflict is resolved, the body moves into the healing phase. During this phase, the affected organ or tissue starts to repair itself. In the intestines, this might involve inflammation, swelling, and other symptoms that indicate the body is working to restore normal function. This phase can be uncomfortable, but it is a natural part of the healing process.

Tips For Managing Emotional Conflicts

It's important to pay attention to your feelings and acknowledge them without judgment because understanding your emotions is the first step toward resolving conflicts in German New Medicine.
