Supporters of the “Germanic New Medicine” have planned a “Suisse Tour 2022”. According to experts, the movement is considered “highly problematic and dangerous”.
A supporter of the “Germanic New Medicine” treatment method from the Canton of Aargau is planning the “Swiss Tour 2022”. He has posted a lot of videos on this topic on YouTube.
In 2017, oncologist Franco Cavalli called for more severe action and the publication of a criminal article against the self-proclaimed miracle healers in Rundschau. He reacted to the case of a young cancer patient from Italy.

The “Germanic New Medicine” (GNM) treatment method is considered controversial and dangerous. It was invented in 1981 by the German physician Ryke Geerd Hamer. One of the main statements: There are no diseases, only mental conflicts that surprise a person. Accordingly, diseases such as cancer simply have to be “overcome”. Pain has a healing effect.
The self-proclaimed miracle healer also took anti-Semitic positions, which he expressed in the context of conspiracy theories. According to Hamer, conventional cancer therapy is considered mass murder. Accordingly, Jewish cancer specialists would use chemotherapy to decimate humanity. According to the research portal “FarbundBeton 2.0” on Twitter, this theory is especially popular among Reich citizens and supporters of Anastasia.
According to the Psiram wiki, the method of treatment has already cost 140 lives. Hamer’s license to practice was revoked in 1986. He died in 2017. His supporters continue to spread the controversial theory – also in Switzerland. The representative of the Canton of Aargau has planned the “Swiss Tour 2022”. To this end, lectures on “How the disease develops” have been scheduled at various locations in Switzerland. The party lasts approximately 1.5 hours and is free of charge. The dates are listed on the website. In order to receive information about the exact place and time, you must register by e-mail.
“This is a very problematic move”
According to religion and sect expert Georg Otto Schmid, this is a “highly problematic movement”. “The dangers are clear: anyone who is under the influence of GNM who refuses to treat cancer with science-based medicine risks dying in unimaginable pain,” says Schmid. According to Schmid, not seeking treatment falls within the sphere of personal freedom. “On the other hand, false promises of healing are an area where government action is possible,” says Schmid.
In 2017, oncologist Franco Cavalli called for more severe action and the publication of a criminal article against the self-proclaimed miracle healers in Rundschau. He reacted to the case of a young cancer patient from Italy, according to the “SRF” report. Despite good chances of recovery, the 17-year-old refused chemotherapy at Bellinzona Hospital. She and her parents are said to have trusted Hamer’s theory. Soon after, she was dead.
Cavalli finds it problematic that fans are now “touring” Switzerland. “These theories contain anti-Semitic and racist elements and are completely absurd. Such lectures are dangerous. ” Up to 20 minutes, Cavalli says, nothing has happened with the crime story so far. “I still find it necessary,” says Cavalli.
“The authorities have little scope for action against him”
According to Thomas Gächter, professor of law at the University of Zurich, licensed doctors and
Doctors do not promise to “cure” alternatives unless they are as agreed
in accordance with accepted science. “You want to prevent people from being misled.” Violations may be fined up to CHF 50,000.
However, in the Canton of Zurich, people without a medical license may benefit from such alternative healing practices
offer without fear of criminal consequences. “The authorities have little scope for action against the self-proclaimed miracle workers. However, you can perform work that does not require a permit
prohibited if they pose a health risk, ”says Gaechter.
The organizer of “Suisse-Tour 2022” did not want to comment on the allegations for 20 minutes.
