The combination of these two approaches to medicine opens up an infinite range of possibilities in the application of body physiology on an articular, visceral, emotional, energetic and spiritual level. Listening to tissue opens the doors of trust, allowing us to find the cause of illness. Once the cause is discovered, the terms chronic and incurable lose significance. Welcome to therapeutic pleasure.
Hello, how are you? We welcome you once again to join us for this extraordinary proposal for combining Craniosacral Therapy and New Medicine in order to facilitate the recovery of those who need it on a physical, mental, energetic and spiritual level.
Firstly, I will provide a brief description of Craniosacral Therapy followed by an introduction to New Medicine. Lastly, we will discuss the combination of these two disciplines.
Craniosacral Therapy was brought to light during the first half of the 20th century by Dr. William Garner Sutherland as a result of his fascination with the architecture of the bones that form the cranial structure. He was able to prove his suspicion that the connective sutures in the skull were designed to permit small movement. Though subtle, this movement was very important because it corresponded to a magical rhythmic impulse that originated in the sacro-cranial system, a semi-closed hydraulic system in which CSF (Cerebrospinal Fluid) circulates. As a result of a filling and contraction/emptying mechanism, CSF causes flexion and extension in the entire body that can be detected using manual palpation.
The design of this system guarantees the integrity of the central nervous system, which depends on communication with the rest of the organs in the body to function correctly. In the areas in which this system does not function correctly, we tend to find imbalances, disorder and dysfunction. This is why a correct evaluation of this rhythmic impulse guides us with extraordinary precision towards the cause of the problem, making it a diagnostic tool of incalculable value.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
This gentle manual palpation technique can be used to detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system by assessing the quality of its rhythm. This rhythm can be felt the way we feel the heart rate or breathing. However, what makes craniosacral rhythm unique is that it allows us to both assess as well as correct using palpation.
Sutherland laid the foundation for this technique, which was then taken to the next level at the end of the 20th century by specialists such as Dr. John Upldeger.
CST earned its reputation as a prestigious therapy due to its effectiveness in the use of gentle techniques applied using a complete and respectful approach.
Tissue behavior determines the hierarchy of the injuries. The correct interpretation of tissue behavior will provide the sequence of recovery and multiply the possibilities of the tissue to connect, allowing us to move through the body as if moving on highways. This is the reason why I believe this therapy is the most adequate therapy to be combined with the teachings of Dr. Ryke Greerd Hamer’s German New Medicine.
New Medicine has been able to detect with astonishing precision the entire map of human biological conflicts and their territorial distribution in the brain. The vehicle that we are going to use to move through this map is Craniosacral Therapy.
An event that takes place in the form of a conflictive shock with a certain degree of intensity that happens unexpectedly and is experienced in solitude can leave a mark on our brain in the form of a Hamer Focus or, as referred to in Craniosacral Therapy, an Energy Cyst. Once the mark has been left on our brain, CST is able to either dissolve it or change from a sympathetic phase to a parasympathetic one (the two phases of the vegetative or autonomic central nervous system).
Below, we will review the significance of the Triangle of Disease proposed by Dr. Hamer in order to have a better understanding of what CST can do in combination with New Medicine.
The Triangle of Disease
In the majority of cases, an ill person manifests organic disorder through signals or symptoms. In almost all therapies, and in particular traditional medicine, it is these signals or symptoms that are treated. Generally speaking, illness is treated using protocols that do not take into account the individual characteristics of a person in terms of age, gender, physical structure, work, occupation, personal circumstances or emotional states. These characteristics are what should actually be treated and not the disorder itself.
Disease is expressed by the ill person through a triangle. The superior angle of this triangle is located in the psyche and the angles of the base are located in the brain and the corresponding affected organ.
In the majority of cases the psyche acts as a receptive station of biological conflicts, leaving a mark (in the form of a Hamer Focus or Energy Cyst) on the corresponding area of the brain. This receptor experiences a type of short-circuit that alters communication with the organ that it governs and changes the supply of nerve energy flow, resulting in the appearance of organic disorder.
By keeping the presence of this triangle in mind, the results of therapy can be more satisfactory and less invasive. This triangle can also be referred to as the Triangle of Health from the moment in which we decide to work on it for the purpose of healing.
On a hierarchical level, the psyche dominates as it is the first to react to a biological conflict. When the psyche reacts, the brain integrates the energy of the biological conflict that the individual is experiencing in the area that corresponds to the conflict (Hamer was able to define this area with extraordinary precision), leaving a mark in the shape of circular rings like those on a dartboard (Hamer Focus). These marks on the brain can be observed through a CAT scan and an NMR of the brain. Lastly, the organs and tissue are receptors of all previous imbalances and are responsible for revealing illness.
Conventional medicine and most therapies recommend that recovery take place through the organs while Hamer recommends that it take place through the psyche at the point of the biological conflict. Despite frequently astounding results obtained using Hamer’s approach, not all people are open to admitting that their disorder may be due to a biological conflict of the psyche. “I have no problems or conflicts” is frequently heard when a patient comes for a visit.
What happens in the brain? Who is capable of using a respectful and non-invasive approach without the use of medication and with proven results?
The following proposes that work be done directly on the brain’s Hamer Focuses or Energy Cysts in order to change their phase in the vegetative nervous system (from sympathicotonic to vagotonic) so that they can then be dissolved once a solution to the conflict has been reached.
This approach is carried out in the most respectful manner possible through the exclusive use of the hands, which strictly follow the behavior of the tissue. We use our previously trained hands to extract all of the information possible that is transmitted by the body of the patient. The results that are achieved through manual diagnostics of this type have the same precision as X-ray diagnostic machines. However, the advantage of manual diagnostics using Craniosacral is that it is a dynamic evaluation technique that is able to perform a continuous register of an individual’s evolution on a physical, energetic and emotional level.
During the patient’s visit for a therapy session, an evaluation will be done on their general condition. Communication between the organs and the brain will be established through listening techniques (Craniosacral diagnostic techniques) that will detect the starting point in the body.
Once the affected organ is identified, the part of the brain that it corresponds to is identified (and vice versa). Using this information along with the New Medicine tables, the biological conflict can be identified and, if appropriate, this information will be shared with the patient in order to accelerate recovery. Frequently, we find cases in which this information can be distorted (such as conflicts of resentment or sexual frustration) and the patient does not admit that this is the cause of their illness. In these cases CST is of great use as it relies on the Hamer Focus in the brain (changing the phase from sympathetic to parasympathetic in just a few minutes), allowing us to work on the root of the conflict without requiring the patient to give any explanations. In fact, after the second session many patients arrive at their session openly speaking about conflicts that they were previously unaware of, demonstrating that they have moved into the stage of recovery.
As mentioned previously, Craniosacral Therapy provides us with the opportunity to work on both the cerebral relay as well as the organs. This allows us to work on the brain and organs simultaneously, activating the psyche of the patient and leading to the release of their emotional state. Therefore, Craniosacral Therapy is the most effective form of medicine to treat Doctor Hamer’s Triangle of Disease (psyche, brain, organs) using a respectful and complete approach.
A good level of concentration in the working sessions is essential in order to fuse the tissue together so that they can contribute the maximum amount of information.
Therapeutic protocols are not effective. Our work should be as personalized as possible. We are treating people who are ill and not the illness itself.
Hamer Focus – Energy Cyst
The Hamer Focus is the region in the brain where the impact of the biological conflict can be seen. The position of the focus determines the quality of the conflict and the size determines the conflict’s intensity.
In the active phase of the conflict, the focus appears in the form of clearly defined concentric rings which look like a dartboard. In the phase of conflict resolution, the rings are dissolved and the outline of the focus is less clear and appears as a consequence of a local edema.
At the moment in which the Hamer Focus appears on the brain, the illness progresses in the organ, whether it is by increasing its mass through mitotic division or decreasing it through necrotic destruction. This will depend on the embryonic origin of each organ or tissue.
Oncologists interpret the Hamer Focus as cerebral tumors or metastasis. If a clearly defined perifocal edema can be identified through the use of contrast, then the cerebral tumor is identified as a fast growing tumor. If it appears in the cortex it is interpreted as a meningeal tumor.
In reality, the Hamer Focus is not a tumor and is instead the region in which the conflict is registered in its distinct phases of evolution.
The only cerebral tissues that con multiply is the neuroglia, which makes up the support tissue of the nervous system, formed by conjunctive tissue.
When a conflict takes place, a Hamer Focus automatically appears on the brain. This focus can be found in a state of short-circuit in continuous sympathicotonia, which should not last long as it deteriorates cerebral connection circuits, resulting in damage to the dependent organs.
The post-conflict phase leads to the parasympathetic phase, or what is also called recovery. After this moment, damage to the organs is repaired.
The Energy Cyst (term coined by CST) is defined as an area of cellular disorganization that is produced by the entrance into the body of a force vector that is mechanical, chemical or emotional. This vector travels through the organism until it finds tissue that cannot remove it and then installs itself in that location.
Oddly, the Energy Cysts reveal themselves in the form of continuous concentric waves (like those that appear in a calm lake when we throw in a stone), helping us identify their location. Noticeable similarities can be identified between the Hamer Focus and Energy Cyst.
As Craniosacral therapists that are able to find Energy Cysts in the body, why couldn’t we find the Hamer Focus with our hands? After all, they are Energy Cysts in the brain. As the brain is a much smaller territory than the rest of the body, this approach comes with certain initial difficulties such as errors in perception that can lead to false interpretation. However, these errors can be corrected through training and, of course, good anatomic knowledge of the brain.
I encourage you to get to know this approach.
