A man loses his son then develops testicular “cancer”. The symptoms are swelling and pain, which takes him to his doctor. After running several tests, the doctor diagnosis cancer. This poor guy is already running a self-devaluation/loss conflict program and now the doctor has just given him a diagnosis shock too! And now instead of getting the rest, a good healthy diet, and the time to process his loss that he needs, he is bombarded by chemotherapy and radiation treatments (poison!). Additionally because he is now in a state of panic because first his son died, and now he fears he’s going to die, the second program that is running is in his kidneys, causing him to retain water which can make it seem like his tumour is growing at an “aggressive” rate. Then if he gets any more shocks or traumas, another program may start running which will cause his doctor to say that his cancer has spread! Then more chemo and radiation, etc. Get the picture?
The big irony here is that by the time this fellow developed symptoms, he was already healing. That’s right. Doctor Hamer found that the initial shock triggers the program to start running and this is called the conflict active phase. If there is a “dangerous” time, this is it. Typically during this phase we don’t eat, can’t sleep, are deeply depressed... this is what we’re like after a shock, and this is when the program starts running. But it is only when we move into the conflict resolution phase... when the original shock begins to heal, that we get symptoms. The symptoms are often uncomfortable, but it is the time when the body is in the healing phase of the program (also see “what is a healing reaction?
”. Think about it... if a tumour is being broken down (and many of them do get broken down by bacteria during this phase, depending on which part of the brain they originated in) there is going to be inflammation, swelling, discharge, etc. But because it is uncomfortable we go to our doctor, and cancer is diagnosed, which starts another program running, and so on, and so on.
