It’s all in Your Psyche
Part One: Allergies
It often comes as a shock to those encountering the Germanic Healing Framework (developed by the late Dr. Geert Hamer) for the first time, to hear that, according to the GHF system (also known as Germanic Healing Knowledge—GHK, and German New Medicine—GNM), there are no “allergies” as we have been given to understand them.
According to this framework, there are no sensitivities to specific foods or types of food, or to mold or pollen; there are no intolerances to grasses, or milk, or gluten, or to specific kinds of animal fur.
What most of us understand as “allergies” or “intolerances” instead constitute a physiological response triggered by an energetic, vibrational expectation of reactivity to which the psyche becomes entrained, establishing a directive that the body obeys to maintain what has become its patterned homeostasis.
The “allergy” experience, is the result of an initial conflict that has arisen in response to a sudden shock that threatens our perceived survival. The initial “conflict shock” is internalized, and associated with certain conditions or situations or substances related to that inciting incident. When those conditions, situations, or substances appear within our field of consciousness, the body replicates and repeats the healing process—known as a “track.”
There is nothing in any of the substances to which most people are purportedly allergic (including mold) that is actually toxic, or incompatible with the human body.
These biological inputs are ever-present in the world, and there is nothing about any one individual’s physical makeup that is constitutionally “special” in its incapacity to handle certain forms of biological material consistent with life on our planet.
We belong here.
There is also nothing unique in the way that our bodies experience dis-ease programs. Whether it’s inflammation, swelling, bleeding, or cell-loss, the names that dis-eases have been given within the allopathic model are a form of commissioned spell-casting, designed to infuse a set of symptoms with specific meanings and emotions—like fear, which is often itself the basis for biological shocks.
And yet what triggers the biological conflict that will lead to healing in one person, will be entirely different in another.
No one is special.
But we are all unique in the configuration of our experiences, our beliefs, our fears, and our self-concepts.
We are exquisitely complex in the ways our perfect ordinariness is composed, and the infinitude of our life experiences gives each of us a singular psychic landscape from which our symptoms arise.
This is why some people appear to be “allergic” to cat hair, and others are not; or why in one family, only three out of five members will “catch” a cold—it is the internal landscape that gives rise to the expression of whatever program it is that we’re running.
One of the ideas I’ve been playing with in my work in birth and self-healing for the past twenty-years, is the notion that the body never lies, and it never betrays.
The body can only lovingly and patiently (albeit sometimes brutally) reveal to us the truth about our choices, our psyches, and our environment—both internal and external.
One of the reasons I find Hamer’s Germanic Healing Framework so useful, prescient, and consistent, is its primary assumption of the body’s perpetual wisdom, embedded within the philosophy’s five biological laws, the most life-changing and brilliant of which is, in my view (and one that is almost painfully obvious once we become attuned to it), that the symptom is the evidence of the healing having already taken place.
For anyone who can grasp the fundamentally simple, underlying principles of the Germanic Healing Framework, and who is willing to apply its concepts to their lives by shifting their beliefs and embedded stories about who and what they are, the experience of “having allergies”, or experiencing any symptom associated with certain triggers, is easily resolved.
Allergies are, in a way, quite optional.
It’s all in your psyche.
And yet I’ve noticed that when I share this assertion with my clients, with the women in my private community, or with those who come into my field with questions about the Germanic Healing Framework and philosophy, the result is often that people feel quite intensely confronted, affronted, and even offended—sometimes enraged.
I find these responses quite baffling on a personal level—my life has only ever been enriched by enshrining within my own consciousness and identity (or continuing to attempt to do so) the idea that literally every state of health or dis-ease is the result of my own choice to willingly contract into that state of being, even if subconsciously.
It’s immensely humbling to choose to face all the ways that I choose and create and love and nurture my states of dis-ease (and goodness, I have).
It’s also, ultimately, wildly exciting and freeing.
What’s especially fascinating though, is that the degree to which we believe and imagine that we have power (or that we lack power) over our states health or dis-ease, along with the stories and the significance of those stories to which we attribute that state of being, ultimately determines how and when our symptoms resolve.
I have noticed that the “allergy” construct can only move through its perpetual cycle if supported by an underlying scaffolding of assumption, value, and identity that reanimates the belief that then triggers the body’s program (or “track”).
For many people, I suspect the outrage that bubbles up at the prospect that they in fact possess the agency to clear their so-called “allergic response” without external potions, lotions, medications, or antihistamines, is a foil for the grief and even deprivation they may anticipate at the prospect of losing whatever benefits they have come to (covertly, unconsciously) associate with their symptoms, or their dis-ease, or their ‘allergy”.
Whether it’s a forfeiture of who they thought they were, or the release of certain responses that others have to one’s symptoms, or the larger societal codes provoked by the symptoms, there are a multitude of ways that healing can be felt as loss.
How are you committed to maintaining the familiarity of the version of you that “has allergies”?

I came to this conclusion a couple months ago and although I think I can muddle through figuring out how to change my own beliefs around this whole allergy thing, I've run up against a wall when trying to help my sons who seem to have reactions to foods. I don't know how to go about helping them (especially the 4 year old). Any advice is very welcome.
I do need to do more reading about the Germanic Healing approach, because I think I mistakenly assumed it was mostly about the idea that viruses and bacteria were not contagious/harmful and I just assumed we all had too much stress or toxic elements in our lives that were causing the problem with foods.
You know what? I just had a massive dose of mdma yesterday in search of healing for some childhood trauma, and after 9 hours yesterday and 8 hours today (totally sober!) letting my body show me everything I needed to relive in order to release, and gaining so much knowledge about myself, I have a wayyy better understanding of how our bodies may be speaking to us and we attribute those "symptoms" to food sensitivities. So feel free to ignore my question above, because our family is going on a radical journey to food freedom lol. Or respond. Whichever feels right.
