Ryke Geerd Hamer was born on May 17, 1935, in Mettmann, Germany and died on July 2, 2017.
He was a German physician.
He was the originator of Germanic New Medicine, also formerly known as German New Medicine and New Medicine, a system of pseudo-medicine that purports to be able to cure cancer.
The Swiss Cancer League described Hamer’s approach as “dangerous, mostly as it lulls the patients into a false sense of security, so that they are deprived of other effective treatments.
He held a license to practice medicine from 1963 until 1986, when it was revoked for malpractice.
His system came to public attention in 1995, when the parents of a child suffering from cancer refused medical treatment in favour of Hamer’s methods.
He was charged with malpractice and convicted in several European countries.
He claimed that his method is a “Germanic” alternative to mainstream clinical medicine, which he claimed is part of a Jewish conspiracy to decimate non-Jews.
Ryke Geerd Hamer passed away at 82 years old.
