The information on this site is from one of the most famous books about the New Medicine (GNM / 5BN): "The Psychic Roots of Diseases" by Björn Eybl. It was written in german and was translated into more than 10 languages already. All these translations are available as ebooks / PDFs for free, as a gift of Björn for you, for the New Earth, for a new time.
In cooperation with Björn, it is splitted on "Disease is Different" into the sections by organ systems and combined with the real cases of our international testimonial / report archive of the related organ system.


The eye is probably the most complex organ in the body. Tissue types from all three germ layers lie close together. All of the different structures of the eye serve a single purpose: sight. Dr. Hamer has discovered an unbelievable amount about the eye but much research remains to be done. According to the Berlin ophthalmologist Dr. Kwesi Anan Odum, (contakt: k.odum@gomedus.de) the most intense emotional conflicts are reflected in the innermost regions of the eye, such as the optic nerve and the retina (increasing in intensity from the outer area inwards).

SBS of the Eyelid/Conjunctiva

HFs sensory function – far top of cerebral cortex

Vitreous body

Fear-of-Rear-Attack Conflict

Eyelid, epidermis



Eyelid, dermis

Visual-Disfigurement Conflict








Visual-Separation Conflict

Eyelid, subcutis, fatty tissue

Aesthetic-Self-esteem Conflict


Visual-Separation Conflict


Visual-Chunk Conflict

Iris, ciliary muscle

Chunk (Motor) Conflict




Inflammation of the eyelid (blepharitis), pink eye (conjunctivitis)1

Conflict Visual-separation conflict, losing sight of someone.
Examples While his parents were on vacation, a child was sent to his grandparents = visualseparation conflict. Two days after the parents came back, he contracts conjunctivitis = healing. (Archive B. Eybl)
The patient‘s partner suddenly developed a passion for a certain hobby, which did not please her at all = visualseparation conflict – the partner has distanced himself from her. She has lost sight of him. When the matter became unimportant to her, she contracted conjunctivitis = repair phase. (Archive B. Eybl)
For the last three weeks, the 49-year-old, right-handed patient has been suffering from severe conjunctivitis of both eyes. Conflict history: In the patient‘s family, everyone used to join together on All Souls‘ Day, which the patient found to be very pleasant. Unfortunately, for the last eight years, this meeting has no longer taken place = visualseparation conflict. Three weeks ago, for the first time, the All Souls‘ meeting took place again. The patient was very happy to see everybody again = beginning of the repair phase. His eye doctor had treated him in vain with antivirus medicine; in the hospital, he had been treated with cortisone. He is relieved as he begins to understand the psychic interconnections.
A 55-year-old man has just returned from vacation and has to go on another trip. He would rather stay at home with his wife, who is suffering from headache and dizziness = visualseparation conflict. On the last day of the trip, his eyelids become very swollen, so much so that he has to go to the eye emergency care as soon as he gets home = beginning of the repair phase. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Cell disintegration (ulcer) in the conjunctiva or in the eyelid. Numbness to pain (hypoesthesia), dry eyes, scales.
Bio. function The person, who has been lost from sight, should be forgotten temporarily through numbness and insensitivity.
Repair phase Conjunctivitis, eyelid inflammation, restoration, pain, reddening, itching – actually a squamous cell cancer.
Note The conjunctiva can also become inflamed through mechanical irritation, strong sun radiation or because of dry eyes – adaptation reaction. Consider parent/child, partner side or local conflict.
Allergic conjunctivitis is again “started“ by a trigger. E.g., someone lost sight of his love in spring, at the time of elevated flower pollen levels. > Seasonal pollen allergy.
Questions Do other family members suffer from conjunctivitis? (Indication of family conditioning). Was this the first occurrence? If no: Determine the cause at the time. Which visual separation stress did I have before the inflammation? Who did I lose “out of sight?” Change of location, a move? Conflict with a family member/partner/friend? If recurring: What was stressful before the current episode? What was stressful before the last episode? (Work out similar situations). Why do I deal with these situations so poorly? (Determine conditioning, examine the childhood, infancy, birth and life of the ancestors after the separation situation).
Therapy The conflict is resolved. Accompany the repair phase and avoid relapse. Find out where the love is, you will find the solution there. Cold compresses and possibly eye baths with decoction of eyebright or horsetail. Lymph drainage massage (see p. 68). Schuessler Cell Salts: No. 3, 4, 11. MMS (see p. 68). Colloidal silver instilling internally and externally in the eye. Avoid sun and wind. Ingest Kanne Bread Drink (probiotic beverage). Hildegard of Bingen: Rebtropfen and Franconian Wine special recipe. Apply antibacterial eye drops, if the repair phase becomes too intense (painful).

MC (molluscum contagiosum)

Same SBS as above. MC causes wart-like growths on upper and inner lid of the eye with a central dipping.

Phase Repair phasePersistent repair of the upper lid caused by a visual-separation conflict.
Excessive repair > growth of warts.
Therapy Questions: see above. Determine the conflict and resolve it in real life, if possible, so that no new growths appear. Guiding principle: “I am bound to all of the people that I like. An invisible band binds us, even when we are not together.“
Surgical removal, if the warts are mechanically or aesthetically disturbing.


Same SBS as above (see: p.102). A pterygium is a growth on the conjunctiva that spreads from the edge toward the pupil and can restrict vision.

Phase Persistent repair of the conjunctiva
Therapy Questions: see: p.103. Find conflicts and triggers, OP (outpatient) if the visual field is disturbed. Nevertheless, work on conflict resolution, otherwise it can grow back.


Same SBS as above (see: p.102). Yellowish colored thickening of the conjunctiva on the inner or outer corner of the eye (lid division).

Phase Persistent repair of the conjunctiva
Therapy Questions: see: p.103. Also in CM, OP is seldom considered because patches only interfere mostly aesthetically.

1 See Dr. Hamer, Charts pp. 119, 132

SBS of the Fatty Tissue

Wart-like fatty deposits on the eyelid (xanthelasma)

Conflict Self-esteem conflict regarding the aesthetics of the eye or the face. One doesn’t feel attractive enough. One wrangles with their appearance. See also p. 346.
Example A woman examines her face in the mirror and notices that she has wrinkles around her eyes.
Conflict-active Unnoticed, local degradation (necrosis) of the fatty tissue.
Repair phase Persistent repair: Reconstruction, i.e., building up fatty tissue. As with bones, the same happens with fatty tissue: Repair is generous and additional material is added (luxury group). Development of xanthelasma.
Bio. function Increase in the fat covering. In the eyes of Mother Nature, “being fat is good and attractive.“ An animal that succeeds in adding fat is successful and desirable. An animal gets thin on its own when it becomes old and weak.
Note Consider “handedness“ (right or left) and side (mother/child or partner) or local conflict. Danger of a vicious circle, because the xanthelasma itself is regarded as disturbing and disfiguring.
Questions When did the xanthelasma appear? What was stressing me at the time? Why don’t I like myself? Why is my appearance so important? How do/did my ancestors think about their appearance? Were they also fixated on their external appearance? (Determine conditioning). What remains of life, the inner life or the body? What comes after death? What counts then?
Therapy Determine the conflict or trigger and resolve it in real life, if possible, so that no new growths appear.
Guiding principle: “I am satisfied with my looks and my eyes!“ “The brightness of the soul is more important than my appearance!“
“Milky Way“ therapy.
Bach flowers (see p. 59): larch, crab apple.
Surgical removal as necessary.

Lacrimal glands

Visual-Chunk Conflict

Lacrimal glands – excretory ducts


SBS of the Lacrimal Glands

Watery eyes (epiphora), Lacrimal gland tumor, lacrimal gland inflammation (dacryoadenitis)1

Each eye has one lacrimal gland, about the size of a hazelnut, and 20-30 small (accessory) lacrimal glands. The tear fluids they produce moisten, nourish, and cleanse, the conjunctiva.

Conflict Visual-chunk conflict (see explanations p. 15, 16). To be unable to grasp (right eye) or to get rid of something (left eye).
Simply: You cannot see something you would like to see or seeing something you don‘t want to see.
Examples A single, young woman suffers on the one hand, because she must regularly visit her aging parents, and on the other hand, an old friend at the same time – chunk conflict of wanting to get rid of the old friend (something uncomfortable) > cell division in the left lacrimal gland > weeping left eye. (See Claudio Trupiano, thanks to Dr. Hamer, p. 291)
A woman commutes to work on her bicycle. For the last 10 years her left eye always starts to water for about 10 minutes after she passes a certain location. Cause: 10 years before, her son, who was 7 at the time, had a bad bicycle accident at that very location. As “therapy” the woman assures herself that the situation is over and everything has turned out well. Since then, her eye doesn’t water anymore. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Growth of a cauliflower-like tumor (adeno-ca) of secretory quality on the lacrimal glands.
Bio. function With more tear fluid, the sight impression can be better salivated and better ingested (or gotten rid of).
Repair phase Inflammation of the lacrimal glands, tubercular-necrotic caseation of the tumor, purulent tears, pain, and possibly mild fever, night sweats.
Questions What stressed me before the inflammation appeared? Which conditioning allows me to feel this way?
Therapy By inflammation: the conflict is resolved.
Support the repair phase and avoid relapse.
Apply cold compresses and curd packs.
Lymph drainage massages (see p. 68).
MMS (see p. 68).
Possibly antibiotics or surgical removal as necessary.

Drying up of the tear fluid (“cystic fibrosis” of the lacrimal glands, xerophthalmia, Sjögren syndrome, dry eye syndrome (DES))

Same SBS as above. For other causes of dry eyes, see: p.107.

Phase Recurring-conflict – persistent repair. More and more glandular tissue breaks down and is replaced by inferior scar tissue > a drying up of the tear (lacrimal) fluids > dry eyes.
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life so that the remaining glandular function is preserved or the lacrimal glands can regenerate.
Eye baths with eyebright, black cohosh (Actaea racemosa) and horsetail.
Lymph drainage massage (see p. 68) to stimulate fluid production.

1 See Dr. Hamer, Charts, pp. 18, 33

SBS of the Dermis

HFs in the cerebellum – topography still unknown

Sebaceous & sweat glands

VisualDisfigurement Conflict,
Conflict: Fear that the Eye Will Dry Out

Styes (hordeolum) and chalazion

In the upper and lower eyelids, next to the eyelashes, lie the sebaceous glands: the so-called glands of Moll (which service the eyelids), the glands of Zeis (which are sweat glands), and the Meibomian glands (which prevent tears from drying up). An oily film prevents tear fluids from passing the edge of the lid. (The oil repels the watery tear fluid.)

Conflict Visual-disfigurement conflict. Damaged integrity of the eye or conflict that the eye is drying out.
Examples A child sees the constant quarrelling of his parents – visualdisfigurement.
A construction worker is hit in the eye by a metal splinter.
Verbal attack with regard to appearance or the eye.
A city girl sees a mouse torn to pieces by a cat – visualdisfigurement. During the repair phase, the girl suffers from a stye. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Thickening of the outer layer of the eyelid and enlargement of the Moll, Zeis or Meibomian glands (sebaceous gland cancer). Increased production of sebum.
Bio. function Thickening of the corium/dermis of the eyelid leads to better protection of the eye. With more sebum, the eye can be better oiled.
Repair phase Inflamed-tubercular-caseating degradation via fungi and bacteria, pain = stye. Recurring-conflict: Inflammation with inclusions of connective tissue (granulating inflammation) – chalazion.
Note Consider “handedness” (right or left) and side (mother/child or partner).
Questions Which sight was intolerable to me? (Determine the situation). Why can’t I deal with it? Which event from my childhood does the situation remind me of? What brought me into the repair phase?
Therapy The conflict is resolved. Accompany the repair phase and avoid relapse.
If it is recurring, resolve the conflict and conditioning.
Cold compresses.
If acute: MMS (see p. 68), colloidal silver internally and instill in the eye externally.
Bach flowers (see p. 59): if chronic, crab apple.
Cayce: if chronic, hot castor oil packs.
Compresses and possibly eye baths with eyebright, chamomile, and horsetail.
Smear with honey.
Lymph drainage massages (see p. 68).
Schuessler Cell Salts: No. 3, 9, 11.

Dry eyes

Most often caused by a “modern“ lifestyle, sometimes by conflicts:

The paper-thin film of tear fluid consists of three components: A layer of mucus at the bottom, an aqueous layer in the middle and a layer of oil at the top.

Meibomian glands: They produce the oil layer and play the leading role when it comes to dry eyes. The oil prevents the evaporation of the water layer and forms a perfectly smooth surface for the refraction of light. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the most common cause of dry eyes. The decline in glandular function is likely a part of the normal aging process. It is also possible that a persistent conflict is involved (see: p.105) > thickening of the oil or blockage of the glandular ducts > loss of glandular tissue. Therapy: Warming the eyelids (warm water) to liquefy the thickened oil again – followed by careful glandular squeezing with the fingers – then cleaning of the eyelid edges with cosmetic tissue/cotton swabs to remove any greasy crust. > dry eyes (p. 106).

Side effects of medication: In particular, blood pressure medications, “the pill“ (birth control), diuretics, anti-depressants, vasoconstrictive eye drops, etc.

Age-related estrogen deficiency: One of the signs of aging is increased dehydration of the body due to a drop in hormone levels (especially estrogen). The mucous membranes are affected.

Working on the computer and watching television cause a decreased rate of blinking > dry eyes for lack of moistening.

General sympathicotonia or deprivation of sleep, see: p.13 > dry eyes (moist eyes in vagotonia).

Not enough of the “charms of nature: light, water, wind, etc.

Lack of physical movement: reducing the general metabolic rate, including the tear apparatus.

Conjunctiva in conflict-active phase: feeling of dry eyes (p. 102).

Lacrimal glands in persistent repair (p. 105).

Tear sacs, swollen eyelids, dark circles

Possible causes:

Unhealthy, stressful lifestyle: Lack of sleep, alcohol and nicotine abuse, lack of vital substances (nutrition).

Under (hypo) or over (hyper) functioning of the thyroid gland: SBS of the basic tissue (p. 145) or of the excretory ducts (p. 147): Doughy skin especially on eyelids, hands and feet = myxoedema. > On the basis of the symptoms, blood values, ultrasound, clarify whether an SBS of the thyroid gland is running. > Conflict resolution, thyroid measures.

Active kidney collecting tubules: Water retention tendency (p. 277).

Circles under the eyes can indicate liver (lack of detoxification), prostate, bladder or anemia.

SBS of the Tear Gland Ducts

HFs sensory function – top of cerebral cortex

Inflammation of the lacrimal gland excretory ducts1

The main lacrimal gland‘s 10 -12 excretory ducts lead into the eyes from the upper sides.

Conflict According to Dr. Hamer: Wanting to be seen or to not be seen.
According to Roberto Barnai: Separation conflict, not wanting to see someone or something anymore.
Example A woman suffers under her intrusive mother-in-law. She is constantly interfering in her life. = conflict, she doesn’t want to see her mother-in-law anymore. When she gets the matter off her chest, by speaking to her husband about it, she experiences inflammation of the lacrimal glands (tear ducts). (Archive Roberto Barnai).
Conflict-active Cell disintegration (ulcer), painful tension in the tear ducts > channel widening.
Bio. function Better through flow of the tear fluid due to larger diameter > better sight.
Repair phase Restoration of cell loss. Inflammation, possibly swelling of the ducts, with accompanying blockage of tear fluid > can give the impression of a lacrimal gland infection.
Note Consider “handedness“ (right or left) and side (mother/child or partner) or local conflict.
Therapy The conflict is resolved. Accompany the repair phase and avoid relapse. MMS (see p. 68). Cold compresses, curd and flaxseed packs, lymph drainage massages (see p. 68).

SBS of the Eyelid Muscles

HFs in the midbrain – topography still unknown

Eyelid-opening m.

Not being allowed to, not being able to, or not wanting to, hold the eyes open

Eyelid-closing m.

Not being allowed to, not being able to, or not wanting to close the eyes

Because of their vulnerability and importance, the eye is protected with two shielding systems: the inner shield is the iris musculature and the outer shield is composed of the upper and lower eyelids.

According to CM, the voluntary (striated) eye-closing muscle (orbicularis oculi) is responsible for closing the eyes. Unconscious closing of the eyes (blinking) functions through a special nerve connection to the brainstem.

Two muscles are responsible for opening the eyes. According to CM, the superior and inferior tarsal muscles are involuntary muscles, which unconsciously open the eye when we blink. The voluntary muscles, levator palpebrae superior and inferior, allow us to deliberately or consciously open our eyes or hold them open.

Inverted eyelid (entropion, trichiasis)

The task of the eye closing muscle (orbicularis oculi) is to close the eyelids. When this muscle is under increased tension, the eyelashes can turn inward and rub painfully against the connective tissue (entropion).

Conflict Not being allowed to, not being able to or not wanting to close the eyes.
Examples A nearly 80-year-old, former entrepreneur, must earn extra money by working as a night watchman despite his age. His duty usually lasts the entire night – conflict of not being able to close one‘s eyes. When he comes home in the morning, his eyes drop closed from tiredness and he sleeps for a few hours. In the last 5 years of his career as a night watchman, an entropion has developed. The lower lids of both eyes have inverted, so that the eyelashes rub painfully on the connective tissue, which then becomes inflamed. When he reaches the age of 80, the patient really retires and can sleep every morning as long as he wants. The tension of the lids relaxes and the entropion retreats without a trace. (Archive B. Eybl)
A long-distance driver must drive every night.
A welder is distracted and looks into the glaring light.
Tissue/Phase Eyelid-closing muscle (orbicularis oculi) – voluntary (striated) muscle – following completed repair or during persistent repair > increase of tension > eyelashes invert.
Questions When did the symptoms arise? (Conflict must have happened before this). Worsening or getting better? (Getting better > conflict situation is getting better; getting worse > conflict situation is getting worse). Better or worse sleep in general? Sufficient sleep? Which situations cause stress? Is it better on vacation? (If yes, the conflict lies somewhere in daily life). Which conditioning pushes me to it?
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life. Find out where the love is – there you’ll find the solution. Guiding principles: “There‘s no harm in a little nap.“ “When I‘m tired, I just lie down and close my eyes.“ According to Richard Wilford: Dissolve saffron in milk and make an eye compress. Compress of tea made from horsetail, comfrey, chicory, or pot marigold (calendula). CM – OP if the conflict resolution fails and gentle measures do not help.

Outward-turned eyelid (ectropium)

Diminished tension in the eye-closing muscle leads to a limp, outward hanging lid (ectropium). This leads to weeping eyes because the tear fluids can no longer drain.

Conflict Not being allowed to, not being able to, or not wanting to close the eyes. (For examples, see above).
Phase Conflict-active phase: Muscle degeneration and paralysis > the eyelid falls limp toward the outside.
Possibly incomplete closure (lagophthalmus) of the eye due to paralysis of the orbicularis muscle.
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life. Guiding principles: see above. Hildegard of Bingen: Lay fresh-from-the-morning-dew rose petals on the closed eye. Compresses or eye-baths of tea made from horsetail, eyebright, comfrey, or chicory. CM – OP, if the conflict resolution fails and gentle measures do not help.

Drooping eyelids (Ptosis)

Affected is the voluntary muscle, levator palpebrae.

Conflict Self-esteem conflict of not being able to, not being allowed to, or not wanting to, keep the eye open. To have overlooked something. Not having been wide awake.
Example A mother tells her child, “Keep your eyes open! Next time, you‘re going to get hit by a car!“
Somebody has to work at night and they are so tired that they cannot keep their eyes open.
Tissue Eyelid lifting muscle, levator palpebrae – voluntary (striated) muscle – cerebral cortex – ectoderm (nerve supply = innervation) and cerebral white matter (nutrition).
Conflict-active Drooping eyelid caused by paralysis or deterioration of the levator palpebrae muscle.
Repair phase Restoration, eyelid tremor in the repair phase crisis. In persistent repair possibly incomplete eye closure.
Bio. function Strengthening the muscles, so that the eye can be held open at decisive moments in the future (luxury group).
Note Consider “handedness“ (right or left) and side (mother/child or partner) or local conflict.
The drooping of both eyelids can sometimes be caused by a general reduction in the sympathetic nervous system. In this case, it may not be an eyelid conflict, but, for example, a thyroid hyperfunction (see: p.145).
Questions When did the symptoms begin? (Conflict occurred shortly before this). What have I overlooked or carelessly ignored during this time? Was I reprimanded or can I not forgive myself for something. What has occupied my mind since then? Why do I react sensitively to this kind of stress? Conditioning from the family? Who acts in the same way?
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life.
Guiding principles: I forgive myself for having overlooked something.“ “I only have two eyes.“ “I go to sleep and wake up when it suits me.“ For further measures, see below.

Jittering eyelid (eyelid tremor)

Possible causes

1. Repair phase crisis of the orbicularis oculi muscle (see inward and outward-turned lids).

2. Repair phase crisis of the levator palpebrae muscle and/or the musculus tarsalis (see above).

Example A 49-year-old, right-handed patient works for a gynecologist. Her working day starts at 7 a.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. Sometimes she has no lunch break because there is so much to do in the office. The patient is suffering from an extreme deficiency of rest and sleep – conflict of not being able to close one‘s eyes. During this period, the eyelid tremor starts up: during quiet moments, the lashes of the right upper lid (partner side) pull together trembling = repair phase crisis. It is the right eye, because her boss is responsible for the shortage of sleep and rest. Since then, this symptom appears again every time the patient gets too little sleep and rest. (Archive B. Eybl)
Therapy If the symptoms return, determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life so that the persistent repair comes to an end.

SBS of the Iris Musculature

HFs in the midbrain – topography still unknown

Pupillary Constrictor Muscle

Chunk conflict

Too much light

Pupillary Dilator Muscle

Chunk conflict

Too little light

The involuntary muscles of the iris (= “old intestinal muscles”) form the eye‘s inner aperture system.

They regulate the amount of light that reaches the retina. There are two opposing players here: the pupil closing muscle (sphincter pupillae) and the pupil dilating muscle (dilatator pupillae).

The iris sphincter muscle is parasympathically innervated. It becomes tense during rest, thereby narrowing the sight opening. Tired and relaxed people have small pupils. The task of this muscle is to choke off the incoming light when it is too bright.

The iris dilating muscle is sympathetically innervated. It becomes tense when the individual is active. People, who are fully awake, under stress, and/or under the influence of drugs have large pupils. The task of this muscle is to widen the sight opening so that more light falls on the retina when it is dark.

From their tasks we can draw conclusions about their conflict content.

Night blindness, excessive pupil constriction (miosis)

Conflict Chunk conflict (see explanations p. 15, 16). Right eye: Too much light. Not getting the chunk because it is too bright.
Left eye: Too much light. Not being able to get rid of something one does not want because it is too bright. Not being able to avoid something unpleasant or dangerous because it is too bright.

In a figurative sense: You want to hide something from the eyes of others (under the cover of darkness). For some reason you dread the public eye. Not wanting to see the dark side. Fear of dark side in oneself or in other people.
Examples Too much light due to an actual brightness-shock, such as being blinded by the sun or a welding machine.
A simple laborer falls in love with a rich industrialist‘s daughter but she rejects him because he has too little to offer > not being able to have one‘s dream woman. The right eye is affected.
A man hides that he has served jail time for theft from his employer. He is afraid that he wouldn‘t have a chance with the company otherwise. The matter comes to light nevertheless > too much light on the past. The left eye is affected.
Conflict-active Constriction of the pupil (myosis) due to constant tension in the iris sphincter muscle, possibly night blindness.
Bio. function Narrowing of the pupil, so that less light comes in. Reducing the brightness so that the “chunk“ can be taken better or what one rejects can be better eliminated.
Repair phase Normalization of the pupil size.
Repair crisis Convulsive pupil behavior.
Questions When did the symptoms begin? What do I want to hide/keep secret in my life? Which “dark side(s)” am I not ready to face? Does this tendency lie in the family? Determine the exact conditioning.
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life.

Over-sensitivity to light, daytime blindness (hemeralopia), excessive widening of the pupils (mydriasis), unevenly shaped pupils

Conflict Chunk conflict (see explanations p. 15, 16). Right eye: too little light. Not getting what one covets or wants because of the darkness. Left eye: too little light. Not being able to get rid of what one does not want because it is too dark, or not being able to prevent something unpleasant or dangerous because it is too dark.
Frequently figuratively: Cannot put himself in the right light. One gets too little attention. Cannot see or find the spiritual, brightness and luminosity.
Example At the job center, a hard-working, highly-skilled worker with years of experience must compete for a job with an unskilled worker – conflict that too little light will be shed on his good qualifications.
Conflict-active Constant tension of the pupil-widening muscle > pupil widening (mydriasis). Over-sensitivity to light > light shyness, daytime blindness, the pupils possibly become unevenly shaped.
Bio. function Widening of the pupil, so that more light comes in. Therefore the “chunk“ can be better received or what one rejects can be better eliminated.
Repair phase Normalization of the pupil size.
Repair crisis Convulsive pupil behavior.
Questions When did the symptoms begin? Were did I not get enough attention? Where did I feel like I was standing on the sidelines? Was I given enough attention as a child? Further conditioning (similar parents, events, etc.)?
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life.

Weeping eyes (epiphora)

Possible causes

  • General vagotonia > increased flow of tears.
  • Mechanical irritation, wind, foreign bodies > the body tries to “rinse away“ the foreign body.
  • Conjunctiva or cornea in the repair phase (see pp. 102, 114).
  • Lacrimal glands in the active-phase due to increased production of tear fluid = dacryorrhea (see: p.105).
  • Meibomian glands: After too many conflicts, the sebum remain limited > too thin layer of fat> “overflowing“ of the tear fluid (see: p.106).
  • Obicularis oculi – Striated portions in an active-phase: the tears cannot be transported (see above).
  • Lacrimal gland excretory ducts in the active-phase. (see: p.107).


Depending on the cause: Compresses or eye-baths of tea made from eyebright and yarrow.

SBS of the Outer Eye Muscles

HFs in the midbrain – topography still unknown

Crossed eyes (strabismus)

Strabismus comes in varying forms: inwardly crossed eyes (esotropia), wall-eye

(exotropia) and vertical deviation (hypertropia). One or more of the six extraocular muscles are affected:

The upper straight muscle (superior rectus) pulls the eye upwards.

The lower straight muscle (inferior rectus) pulls the eye downwards.

The inner straight muscle (medial rectus) pulls the eye inwards.

The outer straight muscle (lateral rectus) pulls the eye outwards.

The upper diagonal muscle (superior oblique) rolls the eye inwards and lowers it.

The lower diagonal muscle (inferior oblique) rolls the eye outwards and lifts it.

Extraocular Muscles

Not wanting to see an unbearable situation anymore or not being able to escape someone/thing > Esotropia

Missing someone/thing and “searching” for them/it with the eyes > Exotropia

Examples Parents take their 4-year-old son to the zoo and they come to the tiger cage. The path leads through a kind of cave in which the animals are behind bars. At the entrance, the little child suddenly becomes frightened. Thus, the mother takes him in her arms and carries him in – motor-eye muscle-conflict of not wanting to see the tiger. He clutches onto his mother and turns his eyes to the side, so he does not to have to look at the tiger.
After the visit to the zoo, the boy is suddenly afraid of the dark. When he watches television, he avoids animal programs. A few days after the zoo visit, the parents notice that the boy often rolls his eyes uncontrollably and has developed a nervous tick (= repair phase – repair phase crisis): he throws his head back and to the left. At the same time, he turns his eyes away. The boy himself finds the tick disturbing, especially when watching television. The parents contact an eye clinic but the symptoms disappear on their own after three weeks. (Archive B. Eybl)
A child‘s parents get a divorce. The baby vainly searches for his mom or dad > outward strabismus or wall-eyes.
A child is taken from his little spot right next to his mother and put to bed in the nursery too soon. He is afraid and searches with his eyes for his mother > strabismus.
A baby has to watch, as he is crying and screaming, while the doctor gives him a shot.
An infant lies in an incubator and must suffer from the glare of an incandescent light.

Inwardly crossed-eye(s) (esotropia)

Conflict Not wanting to see somebody or an unbearable situation. Not being able to escape a hopeless situation – the escape inwards! Those who are oriented inwards are usually affected here (receptive or introverted types).
Example A child‘s parents separate. The mother/child eye is fixated for example on the mother – she is still there. The partner eye turns inward “to take the father into himself.“
Phase Persistent-active conflict of the inner straight or outer straight muscle.

Outwardly crossed eye(s)/Wall-eye (exotropia)

Conflict One misses someone or something and looks for him or it with the affected eye. “The outward search!“ Not being able or wanting to see someone or something.
Example A child‘s parents argue constantly – “First the parents diverge and then the eyes.“ (Dr. Kwesi Odum). The wandering eye looks for the father in the distance, for example.
Note The affected are usually outward-oriented (leader or extroverted) types.
Phase Persistent-active conflict of the inner straight or outer straight muscles.
Note The outer upright muscle is linked to the SBS of the kidney collecting tubules. (p. 226) > active kidney collecting tubules, for example, of the left kidney > pulling of the left eye outwards = diagnostic clue! The eye can be brought into the correct alignment consciously. (In this case, there is usually not a sight conflict but rather a refugee and existence conflict).

Vertical deviation (hypertropia), rolling of the eye(s) (zyklotropia)

Conflict Not being able, allowed or wanting to see upwards or downwards. Not being able, allowed or wanting to see inwardly down or outwardly up or rolling the eye.
In practice: Not being able or wanting to see someone or something located above or below.
Fear that something dangerous will come from above or below (hypertropia).
Example Hypertropia can mean that the child misses it’s mother or father (looking up from below).
While playing, a boy is hit on the head by a tree branch (danger from above) > hypertropia.
A child sees some lying injured on the ground (fear from below) > hypertropia.
Phase Persistent-active conflict of the upper/lower straight muscle or upper/lower diagonal muscle.

Questions on crossed eyes

As always with children, we have to consider the family system. Children often carry symptoms for their parents. Were there symptoms at the same time that the eyes crossed? (Indication of the conflict’s cause). In what direction does the eye cross? On the mother/child side or the partner side? (Indication of the person involved). When did the crossing happen for the first time? (The conflict must have happened before this). What happened at this time? (You may want to work with your calendar, diary). What affected the child? (E.g., parental quarrelling/divorce, stress with their teacher or in preschool). What was affecting the parents? (Relationship, quarrelling in the family, stress at work). Does the crossing get better during school breaks/vacation? (Then the problem lies in daily life, e.g., school). Is it worse during the day or in the evening? (During the day is an indication that preschool, school is stressful). Evenings is an indication that family, being at home is stressful). Recurring dreams? (Indication of conflict). Ask the child: What would you like the most? (Possible indication of the issue). Who would you like to have here/go away? (Indication of the issue).

Therapy for strabismus

Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life. Very important: eye training (Books by Leo Angart, Mirsakarim Norbekov. See bibliography.). Spending time in nature instead of in front of the television or cell phone (in nature, the eye follows natural impulses > the eye muscles will be put to use in a healing way). Eye patches or bandages over the eyes only make sense for children and then, only where there is weakness in vision (amblyopia). Patches carry with them the danger of follow-up conflicts due to disfigurement and sight hindrance (it is better if they are only worn at home). An OP should be evaluated very critically, for instance, in order to prevent amblyopia.

Nystagmus (dancing eyes)

With nystagmus, the eyeball twitches involuntarily outwardly or inwardly (most common), away from its correct position. Sometimes upward or downward twitching is possible as well. Sometimes the nystagmus happens in combination with eye crossing – not surprisingly, since both symptoms represent different phases of the extraocular muscles’ SBS.

Conflict For a nystagmus on a horizontal plane: Unable to see a danger from the side. Something from the side causing fear – I have to at least control it out of the corner of my eye. See also the conflict descriptions for crossed eyes.
Phase Repair phase, persistent repair of the/an outer eye muscle(s).
Bio. function Whatever is scaring someone should always be kept in sight.
Note When someone has crossed eyes, after the conflict is resolved, nystagmus may appear – a good sign. However, when nystagmus lasts longer than three months, this means that the conflict is persistent > find and resolve the conflict.
Therapy Determine the conflict, conditioning and belief systems to bring the persistent repair to an end. (See above for questions and therapy advice).

SBS of the Cornea

HFs sensory function – top of cerebral cortex

Thinning of the cornea (keratoconus), inflammation of the cornea (keratitis), corneal clouding1

Conflict Strong visual-separation conflict. To lose sight of someone.
Example A single woman‘s son moves away from home.
A schoolgirl‘s favorite teacher is transferred.
A man has a major fight with his brother. He knows that their good relationship has now come to an end. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Cell disintegration (ulcer) of the cornea. No pain. In persistent conflict activity, this can lead to a keratoconus = central curving forward and thinning of the cornea. Usually both eyes are affected, and it is almost always associated with myopia, because the light is refracted in excess.
Bio. function The one who is out of sight should be forgotten temporarily.
Repair phase Inflammation of the cornea, clouding of the cornea. Restoration of the tissue, pain, swelling, reddening. CM: “mycotic, bacterial or viral keratitis.“ In persistent repair: Arcus senilis/arcus lipoides, cornea band degeneration, iron deposits (hematocornea), copper deposits (Wilson’s disease), clouding caused by the connective tissue (corneal pannus).
Note Consider “handedness“ (right or left) and side (mother/child or partner) or local conflict.
Questions For keratoconus: Diagnosed when? (Conflict must have happened relatively long ago and still be active). Who did I lose out of sight? (Separation/going away/death of family member, partner, friend)? Why did that affect me so badly? (Conditioning: childhood, birth, pregnancy) Which family member is similar to me in this regard? (Examine for conditioning). For inflammation of the cornea: What happened that was good, shortly before the eye became inflamed? (E.g., reunion with someone I missed, good news, a good conversation) What separation was I suffering from before and since when? (To estimate the length of the repair phase, date precisely). Was this the first corneal inflammation of my life? (If no, also determine the conflict at that time – important for a permanent solution). Separation conditioning? (Infancy, birth)? With regard to the separations, which conditioning is there in the family?
Therapy In cases of inflammation of the cornea and corneal clouding, the conflict is resolved. Support the healing process. In case of recurrences, determine the conflict and conditioning.
Guiding principles: “I am bound to all the people I like.“ “An invisible band binds us.“ “In my heart, I am together with all those who are dear to me, whether they are present or not.“
Saying goodbye ritual, lymph drainage massage (see p. 68), MMS (see p. 68).
Hildegard of Bingen: spring apple-tree leaves and onyx wine special recipes.
Eye baths and tea: plantain and eyebright. Taking colloidal silver internally and externally instillation in the eye. Enzyme preparations. Eye bath tea: plantain and eyebright.
In extreme repair phases: possibly antibiotic eye ointment.

Trachoma (Egyptian ophthalmia)

Same SBS as above. According to CM, the infection is caused by chlamydia. Chronic inflammation of the conjunctiva and cornea. It is a very common disease in developing countries.

Increased scarring that often leads to blindness (pannus trachomatosus or scar entropion).

Phase Persistent repair or condition after many recurrences.
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life, so that the persistent repair comes to an end. See inflammation of the cornea.
Improvement of living conditions (sanitation, clean water, etc.). See keratitis.

1 See Dr. Hamer, Charts pp. 119, 132

SBS of the Lenses

HFs sensory function – top of cerebral cortex

Clouding of the lenses (cataracts)1

Conflict Very strong visual-separation conflict. Losing sight of someone.
Examples A woman is forced to move to a retirement home. She misses everything: her home, her personal possessions, her cat, her neighbors.
A patient‘s wife dies after 42 years of marriage. (Archive B. Eybl)
The marriage of a right-handed mother of two children ends. During the divorce proceedings, her husband arrogantly tells her that he plans to take the children away from her and that she won‘t be able to prevent it because he has enough money to pay for the best lawyer – visualseparation conflict, fear of losing sight of the children > sclerosis of the left lens. (See Claudio Trupiano, thanks to Dr. Hamer)
A grown man feels like his mother is protecting him like a child. One day he says to her, “Mother, I already have my own family, you don’t have to treat me like this anymore.” Afterwards, his mother develops a cataract. She lost her role. (Archive: Kwesi Odum)
Conflict-active Cell degradation, no pain. Due to the thinning of the crystalline cells of the lens, more light can enter the eye.
Bio. function The one who is moving out of sight can be seen better and for a longer period.
Repair phase Restoration (cell growth) of the lost substance, which has occurred within the lens. Temporary clouding due to this (CM, = “cataracts“) = sign of healing and repair.
Note In persistent repair and because of recurrences, the lens gets cloudier and cloudier because the missing substance is replaced by inferior (scar) tissue.
Consider “handedness“ (right or left) and side (mother-child or partner).
Artificial light plays a possible role in the cloudiness of the lenses (see macular degeneration).
Therapy Questions: see above.
Determine the conflict and conditioning and if there is persistent repair; resolve it in real life.
The lense will only regenerate itself if the conflict is truly addressed and remains resolved. Without profound changes in one’s/the patient’s consciousness and life, an improvement isn’t to be expected.
Guiding principles: “I am bound to all the people I like.“ “An invisible band binds us.“ “In my heart I am together with all those I love whether they are present or not.“
Saying goodbye ritual.
Eye training.
Eye baths with eyebright, also internally as tea.
Acupuncture (see p. 68), acupoint, classical and facial lymph drainage massages (see p. 68).
Unfortunately, an OP us usually unavoidable, but fortunately, eye surgeons do great work here.

1 See Dr. Hamer, Charts pp. 119, 132

SBS of the Choroid

Choroid cancer (uveal melanoma adeno-ca), inflammation of the choroid (choroiditis), inflammation or tumor of the iris or the ciliary body (iritis, uveitis), nodules of the pupillary seam, coloboma, iris nevus, melanoma of the iris1

The choroid, iris, and ciliary body are made up of endodermal tissue = developmentally, the oldest part of the eye (the so-called eyecup originally). The choroid is basically intestinal mucosa tissue. The iris muscles (= old intestinal muscle) is coated with differently pigmented “intestinal mucosa” (different eye colors).

Conflict Chunk conflict (see explanations p. 15, 16). Not being able to sufficiently identify what one wants (right eye), or not being able to get rid of seeing something unpleasant (left eye). Simply stated: one would like to see something but cannot (right eye); or one wants to avoid seeing something undesirable (left eye).
Example A 17-year-old apprentice in the chemical industry goes to get sandwiches for his coworkers. While he is gone, his workplace is blown up by an explosion. When he comes back, he sees body parts lying all around. Two of his coworkers are dead and one is badly injured – conflict of not wanting to see the situation or wanting to see his coworker uninjured. Five months later, as he gets over the incident, both eyes become inflamed – beginning of the repair phase. In the hospital, he is diagnosed with a choroiditis in both eyes. Since the condition does not improve with cortisone, the doctors recommend chemotherapy. At this point, the family becomes familiar with the 5 Biological Laws of Nature. The young man gradually stops using the cortisone. After 8 months in the repair phase, everything returns to normal again. (Archive B. Eybl)
A 6-year-old boy is playing alone in his room as he gets the idea of pulling a plastic box over his head. Unfortunately, the box gets stuck and the child becomes afraid because it is dark in there – conflict of not being able to capture the coveted thing (right eye). He screams but his near-deaf grandmother in the next room cannot hear him because she is watching television. In the repair phase, a choroid inflammation of the right eye is diagnosed. Recurrences occur again and again. For instance, the child always becomes afraid when a sweater is pulled over his head. (See Claudio Trupiano, thanks to Doctor Hamer, p. 171)
Conflict-active Growth of a choroid tumor (adeno-ca), a tumor of the iris covering (CM: iris nevus, iris melanoma), a tumor of the ciliary body or the growth of so-called pupillary seam nodules (sarcoidosis: in principle, little intestinal polyps).
Bio. function To produce more intestinal cells in order to be able to take up or eliminate the wanted or unwanted thing in a better way.
Repair phase Tubercular caseating deterioration of the tumor. This process is called choroid tuberculosis or choroiditis. Tuberculosis lesion = white spots behind the retina which disappear over time. Caverns may remain. Inflammation of the iris, inflammation of the ciliary body, swelling, pain.
Questions When did the symptoms begin? When was the tumor diagnosed? (Estimate the beginning of the growth – possibly a few months before – conflict must have happened at this point > count back the months). At the time, what couldn’t I bear looking at anymore or didn’t get to see anymore? What was going on in my life at the time/what changed? Why did this affect me so much? (Determine conditioning from ancestors).
Therapy In the case of a choroid tumor: Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life. Guiding principles: “There is a reason that it had to be like that.“ “One can only learn from it.“ Attempts by CM to use radiation is risky and so is an operation. Better alternative: laser therapy (with smaller tumors). Tea/compresses: eyebright, dill, hibiscus, plantain, violet. Lymph drainage massages (see p. 68). Schuessler Cell Salt: No. 3, MMS (see p. 68). In extreme repair phases, possibly cortisone and/or antibiotics.

SBS of the Vitreous Body

Vitreous opacity, increased pressure within the eye (glaucoma),
posterior vitreous detachment (
PVD) and bleeding, floaters1

In CM, the common German term “grüner Star“ (“green stare”) is used interchangeably with glaucoma and describe various conditions of the eye, especially the optic nerve – that sometimes, but not necessarily, are accompanied by increased pressure within the eye (“primary open-angle, narrow-angle, angle-closure and normal tension glaucoma”).

In Dr. Hamer‘s opinion, the raised inner pressure comes from an edema in the vitreous body. In accordance with the 5 Biological Laws of Nature, we differentiate between the clouding of the vitreous body (= “green stare“) in the active conflict stage and increased inner pressure (= glaucoma) due to an edema of the vitreous body during the repair phase.

Conflict Fearofrear-attacks from “bad guys” (robbers, rapists, tax authorities, teachers, classmates, boss).
Examples A patient divorces his wife. The wife is given custody and he may see the child only one day at a time – fear-of-rear-attack conflict. He feels that his ex-wife is robbing him of his child. (B. Eybl)
A 5-year-old boy suffers a fear-of-rear-attack conflict affecting both eyeballs because suddenly the lights go out in the apartment. Over the years, his fear becomes so intense, that when the lights are off, he suspects robbers and murderers are everywhere. He is diagnosed with reduced ranges of vision in both eyes – conflict-active phase. The boy does not come into healing until eight years later, when he has to ride his bike alone to his mother‘s friend’s one evening. He realizes that it is not bad to ride in the dark. A few days later, he has an acute attack of glaucoma (edema in the vitreous humor). Three days later, the worst is over. Therapy: belladonna C 30. (Personal archive Antje Scherret)
The supermarket cashier is attacked from behind by a robber – fear-of-rear-attack conflict. Shortly afterwards, she notices that her range of vision has been reduced = active-phase – “wearing blinders“ phenomenon. (Archive B. Eybl)
Ocular Pressure According to Dr. Odum, the inner eye pressure should be measured several times (as much as twice a day before and after stress) before being treated, except in the case where it rises to an extreme value of over 40. The thickness of the cornea should also be measured as this can affect the eye pressure measurement).
Conflict-active Necrosis of tissue in the vitreous body and very rapid clouding (green stare). Limitation or elimination of the range of view (scotoma).
Bio. function The opacity causes a “wearing-blinders phenomenon.“ The vision to the side, to the back and upwards is clouded. The pursued individual can fully concentrate on the flight forward (like a rabbit, which just runs instinctively without looking back).
Repair phase Restoration of the vitreous body, rise of the inner eye pressure (glaucoma) due to edema. The pressure rises through constant production of fluid in the vitreous body and is naturally desirable, so that the eyeball stays full during the healing and does not “shrink up.“ The collagen in the vitreous body can condense > so-called floaters, possible lifting or bleeding of the vitreous body. Clouding of the vitreous body through persistent conflict.
Note If the left halves of the vitreous body of a right-handed person are affected, it is about the partner. After many recurrences, one sometimes finds streaks of cholesterol or calcium phosphate in the vitreous body > seeing sparks (spintheropy). An SBS of the kidney collecting tubules (= syndrome) usually plays “background music“ to a diagnosis of glaucoma
Retinal tear: In the active-phase of this SBS, traction in the vitreous body can cause a tear in the retina (retinal detachment). Conflict aspect: something is pulling at a person.
Questions With chronic, increased pressure within the eye: When did the symptoms begin? (Conflict previous). What am I chronically afraid of? Is it better when on vacation? (If yes > conflict from daily life). What stresses me in daily life? What worries/frightens me? What would I like to change? (Indication of the conflict) Which conditioning has sensitized me? (Pregnancy, childhood, ancestors)? In what condition is my trust?
Therapy In case of opacity of the vitreous body: determine the conflict and conditioning and resolve. Glaucoma: the fear-of-rear-attack conflict is resolved; support the repair phase: wear sunglasses, keep the head cool, darken the room, etc. See also: repair phase at the brain level, p. 67. Resolve refugee conflict if necessary. Guiding principle: “I am safe and taken care of.“
Neck and face lymph drainages (see p. 68), acupuncture, acupoint massage (see p. 68). MMS (see p. 68). Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Eye baths and tea: eyebright. Take colloidal silver internally and instill in eye externally. Combination remedy Lymphomyosot to improve lymph circulation. Enzyme preparation. If all else fails, CM medications (Prostaglandin analogues, carbohydrase inhibitor).

SBS of the Optical Nerve

Normal pressure glaucoma, damage to or “stroke“ of the optical nerve

It is not certain if increased pressure within the eye poses a problem for the optical nerve. The fact of the matter is that the optical nerve is damaged just as often under normal pressure. According to CM, because of thromboses in the optical nerve’s blood vessels, which in my opinion which is incorrect, the blood vessels are arranged as a network. If this were the case, blockages could always detoured collaterally (see: p.153).

Conflict One does not want to integrate the information seen. One is annoyed. Self-esteem and self-respect component. = Intense eye(s) conflict. According to my experience, the person affected is usually hit by more than one thing at a time, pushing them over the limit they can handle.
Examples “This is really getting on my nerves!“
A male nurse is unable to work anymore and goes to the job center. He is annoyed by all the paperwork and correspondence with the social security agency and the job center. He is diagnosed with a normal pressure glaucoma with damage to the optical nerve. (Dr. Odum)
The wife of the 68-year-old patient contracts Parkinson‘s disease. At the same time, his mother-in-law, who lives in the same house, becomes unable to care for herself due to dementia. Half a year later, the patient loses half of the sight of his right (partner) eye. Diagnosis: damage to the optical nerve due to stroke of the optical nerve. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Cell reduction, decrease in function of the optical nerve, possibly also due to limited blood supply > disturbances in the field of view or loss of sight.
Bio. function Blocking out the unbearable for the protection of the individual. „Better to be half blind than to have to see that.”
Repair phase Recovery depends on the conflict mass. Regeneration is usually incomplete.
Questions When did the symptoms begin? (Conflict must have taken place some weeks before and have continued more or less until the present). What annoys/burdens me so much? Are there multiple, simultaneous unresolved problems? Which conditioning has led me into the dilemma? (E.g., perfectionism, wanting to do everything immediately, sloppiness)? Are there similar patterns among ancestors? (Indication of conditioning) Why am I doing it the same? Which new attitude was helpful? Which new internal and external changes?
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and resolve them in real life. Find out where the love is – there you’ll find the solution. See also therapy for macular degeneration p. 121.
Guiding principle: “I couple myself with God‘s power and serenity. From now on, life will be easy.“

Closed-angle glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma

The most difficult chapter of eye medicine – also for us:

  • Closed-angle glaucoma = narrowing of the space between the iris and the cornea > disrupted drainage > increased pressure in the inner eye. The cause is an SBS of the iris in the active-phase (see: p. 94) > swelling > narrowing of the angle.
  • Open-angle glaucoma: First possibility: SBS of the vitreous body in the repair phase > increased intraocular pressure (p. 117). Second possibility: resistance to drainage in the scleral venous sinus canal due to cell growth or muscle contraction: visual-chunk conflict (see explanations p. 15, 16) that one cannot let go of/release something that has happened (e.g., a fight between grown children, daughter’s unhappy marriage).
  • Another cause of increased inner pressure: SBS of the ciliary body: Visual-chunk conflict (see: p.116) > cell division in the activephase > increased fluid production. Bio. function: Better vision through increased vitreous fluid. Example: A man desires a woman, but she does not reciprocate. He produces more vitreous fluid for the “magnifying effect“: In this way, he is subjectively closer to the one he adores. Diagnosis: glaucoma. (Archive Dr. Odum)

SBS of the Retina

Reduced functioning of the retina, retinal edema, retinal detachment1

Conflict Fear-of rear-attack conflict. Fear of a thing or a danger from behind that cannot be shaken off. “Makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.“ According to Dr. Odum, also a guilt-shame theme.
Example A patient lends an acquaintance a large sum of money. Suddenly, he is seized with the fear that he has fallen into the hands of a swindler – fear-of rear-attack conflict. (Archive B. Eybl)
An owner of a small construction company lets the firm deliberately go bankrupt in order to get a tax advantage. However, the tax authorities are onto his scheme. He is afraid of a financial audit nearly every day. (Archive B. Eybl)
A retired, 67-year-old woman suffers a fear-of rear-attack conflict when her doctor tells her the following: “You were a smoker in the past. Your breathing difficulties are dragging out so long that we need to find out whether something malignant has formed.“ The woman sees this as a cancer diagnosis. Later, when her fears are allayed, she comes into healing. Now a retinal detachment is diagnosed. (See Johannes F. Mandt…Was Gesund Macht, p. 67).
Someone finds out that his job at the company is “shaky.“ (Archive B. Eybl)
A patient has a car accident. He is afraid that he will lose his driver‘s license = fear-of rear-attack conflict. (Archive B. Eybl)
Conflict-active Clouding of the retina, partial occlusion of the range of vision (scotoma), reduced sight.
Bio. function What one is afraid of should be made “invisible“ by means of a temporary interruption in the functioning of the retina.
Repair phase Edema between the sensory cell layer and the pigmented epithelium. It only rarely comes to a detachment of the pigmented epithelium from the choroid.
Even rarer is a splitting of the retina (retinoschisis).
There is usually a loss of sight in part of the field of vision (“blind spot,“ scotoma, flashes of light).
The worsening of vision is dramatic if the retinal detachment is near the macula where vision is sharpest.
Relapses cause callosity, that is, scar tissue is formed. Usually, a recurrent conflict.
Note By all means, flashes of light should be looked into by an ophthalmologist.
Syndrome (see p. 277ff) aggravates the situation as it causes even more fluid to be stored!
With the left half of the retina, the right-handed person looks to the right to the partner and with the right half of the retina, to the left to mother/child. If the left side of the retina of a right-handed person is affected, it is about the partner. If the right side of the retina is affected, it is about the mother/child.
In contrast to the opinion of Dr. Hamer, I believe that diabetes really does aggravate diseases of the retina (diabetic retinopathy) as is maintained by CM.
Questions Which stress was released before the retinal edema appeared? Fear lingers behind you? (E.g., mother-in-law, credit, tax authorities)? Which conditioning lies behind it? (E.g., insecurity, perfectionism)?
Therapy The conflict is resolved. Support the healing. If it recurs, determine the conflict and conditioning.
Conventional laser therapy: Here, the still intact edges of a detached retina are attached by pinpoint burning. This prevents an enlargement of the detached area. The price for this “safeguarding” is irreparable scarring (caused by the laser burns) > limited vision. Laser treatment is therefore not a curative, but a preventive measure. Retinal edemas don’t need to be burned with lasers; you can wait until the edema subsides. The two retinal layers reattach themselves to each other when the conflict is resolved and remains resolved for good. > The use of lasers is justified for major retinal detachments.
If recurring, guiding principles: “I am safe and taken care of.“
Alkaline diet (see p. 65) rich in vital elements.
MMS (see p. 68).
Enzyme preparations.
Garlic and lemon drink cure.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) 3% internally.
Bach flowers (see p. 59): aspen, mimulus, star of Bethlehem.
Neck/face lymph drainages (see p. 68), acupuncture, acupoint massage (see p. 68).

Macular degeneration

In the center part of the retina – “yellow spots” in Latin: stains (macula lutea) – the vision cells lie extremely close together. This is where vision is the sharpest.

Most vision takes place in the macula.

In the case of macular degeneration, the cells in this area begin to die off.

The patient can no longer see the object, the eye is fixed on sharply, although he can see the peripheral area well.

Other symptoms: reduced strength of vision, sensitivity to being blinded by light, disturbances in seeing colors and contrast.

CM differentiates between “wet“ and “dry“ forms of the disease. According to CM, the cause of macular degeneration is unknown.

Dry macular degeneration

An SBS of the retina (see: p.119). Dry MD is diagnosed in more than 80% of those affected.

Sometimes the dry MD turns into wet MD. During ophthalmoscopy, so-called drusen = dead sensory cells, can be seen in dry macular degeneration. Conventional medicine essentially has no therapy for this.

Conflict Something that is centrally important is not discovered/not seen/stubbornly ignored. According to Dr. Odum: A special form of a fear-in-the-neck conflict: Negative expectations, guilt, shame and disgrace.
Phase Persistent active conflict. Decline of sensory cells (“geographic atrophy”) as long as the conflict remains unresolved.
Bio. function Blocking out the ugly/threatening/shameful reality.
Note In my experience, serious illnesses like this are usually caused by a large unresolved family/ancestor issue. Therefore, don’t get hung up on the trigger, look deeper instead.
Questions What fear is breathing down my neck? (Job, retirement, family, worry about children, grandchildren) family: Was an ancestor affected? If so, which themes accompanying the life of the family have been ignored? (Taboos, blind spots) What aren’t we supposed to see? Where are we afraid to look? What should remain hidden? What do I desire most in life? (Note on conflict and resolution) What meaning could the disease have for me?

Wet macular degeneration

Wet MD is often a transition from dry MD. It is more problematic – here, choroidal vessels migrate into the degenerated retina. According to Dr. Odum, wet macular degeneration is an eyesight survival program. The choroid (see: p.116) fills the gap left by the dying retina with new cell growth.

Conflict/quest. See dry MD, additional fear, feeling undersupplied in the ideal sense (starved like the retina).

Phase Persistent active conflict. Choroidal vessels sprouting into the macula.
Note Also, “radiation” from fluorescent tubes, energy-saving lamps, televisions and computers probably play a role in macular degeneration: The unnatural, disharmonious flickering light with its high blue components might damage the retina. Alternatives: Incandescent lamps, as much natural light as possible, use sunglasses only when really necessary (e.g. in high mountains).
Therapy The conventional medical standard is the injection of so-called VEGF inhibitors (chemo) into the vitreous body – i.e. right into the middle of the eye. > Not recommended in my opinion.
Therapy for macular degeneration
Determine the conflict and conditioning and resolve them in real life.
Vital, alkaline foods, especially green vegetables, etc.
Garlic and lemon drink cure, blueberries.
Vitamins, minerals, trace elements (orthomolecular therapy)
MMS (see p. 68).
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) 3% internally.
Eye exercises (see bibliography), gymnastics.
Acupuncture, acupoint massage (see p. 68), lymph drainages (see p. 68).
• Natural borax internally.
• Breathing exercises.
• Amino acids, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene.

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)

In this condition, the retinal sensory cells increasingly disappear from the periphery – effectively the counterpart to macular degeneration (where the center is affected). With RP, the field of vision is restricted from the outside.

Conflict Someone is fanatically fixated on their own things, only sees their own goal and loses any sense of anything else. To avoid their own downfall, they don’t look to the left or right. Issues: stubbornness, ignorance, fanaticism. According to Dr. Odum: Blocking out the horrible visions through hyperpigmentation.
Phrase There is a German phrase that roughly translates to: “Tunnel vision always has a blind spot behind it.”
Phase Persistent conflict. Restriction of the field of vision (tunnel vision) from the outside, impaired vision at twilight and distinguishing contrasts. More rarely, however, the restriction of the visual field can also start on the inside (= inverse RP).
Therapy There is no standard therapy for RP. See therapy for macular degeneration p. 121.

1 See Dr. Hamer, Charts, pp. 141,146

SBS of the Retina

Red-green color blindness (color vision deficiency)

This is an “hereditary disease” and this is why we must place our focus on the ancestors. Those affected (10% of men, but only 0.5% of women) have difficulties distinguishing the colors red and green from one another.

Conflict According to Frauenkron-Hoffmann: Not wanting to see something green or red. Ancestral conflict in connection with these colors. Stress during an ancestor’s experience with these colors.
Example An 8-year-old boy can’t distinguish between red, green and violet. Mrs. Frauenkron-Hoffmann identified the following conflict for the color red: His parents decide to have the child when the mother is already 30. Unfortunately, they aren’t successful for two years. Every time when the mother saw that she had her period (blood – red), she experienced stress – her time was running out. The other colors that he can’t see also have something to do with his ancestors. As soon as the boy recognized the connection and understood that the stress is now over and didn’t actually have anything to do with him, he could see all colors. (www.biologisches-dekodieren.de)
Conflict-active Impairment of the ability to see specific colors, usually from birth onward.
Wether the problem lies with the retina (perception) or with the visual cortex (processing), doesn’t play a main role for us.
Bio. function Blocking out the color to protect the individual from the stress associated with it.
Repair phase Restoration of color vision.
Note Mrs. Frauenkon-Hoffmann explains why 20 times more men are effected by red-green color blindness in this way: Many of our male ancestors died on the battlefield (blood – red, field – green).
Questions Which color(s) does it involve exactly? Is this vision deficiency also present in ancestors? (Indication that the conflict is to be sought there). Which stress ancestor(s) have with that color? Was there stress with blood at the time? Did someone die tragically on a battlefield (green). What do I think about with this color? Which role does this color/this associated something play with an ancestor(s)?

Total color blindness (achromatopsia), day blindness (hemeralopia)

We categorize those people as color blind who can only see white-gray and no colors. Because color blindness is hereditary, we have to look for the conflict among ancestors.

Conflict Light or daylight is dangerous, because one can be discovered. In the figurative sense: The light of recognition hurts. One doesn’t want to see the skeletons in the closet – a test of honesty shouldn’t be ruled out. Also: One’s sight/judgement is limited to black or white. One has forgotten how diverse, colorful and many-facetted life is. One shuts out the light.
Examples The soldier can only advance at night. He would be shot at the break of day.
On the run: The hiding place is only safe at night. They’ll be discovered during the day.
Bio. function Blocking out of all colors so that the individual believes they are safe. In white-gray, one feels better.
Conflict-active Limitation of the ability to see colors, usually from birth onward.
Repair phase A complete restoration is probably not so easy here. It depends on whether color receptors in the retina are present and functional.
Questions Did ancestors also have this vision deficiency? Which stress did an ancestor(s) have once in the daylight? Did someone need the protection of the night? Dramatic war, criminal or refugee experiences? Have I or did my ancestor(s) suppress something monstrous? (E.g. murder, incest)? Has someone completely shut out the Light (of God) and sought their salvation in darkness?
Therapy Determine the conflict, triggers and original conditioning and resolve them. See also treatment p. 121.

Nearsightedness (shortsightedness, myopia)

In CM, one differentiates between two types of nearsightedness:

  • By so-called axial nearsightedness, the eyeball, instead of being perfectly spherical, is slightly elongated. This results in the focus lying in front of the retina instead of on it > seeing in the distance is out of focus and blurred > nearsightedness. (An elongation of the eyeball by 1 millimeter results in a nearsightedness of about 3 diopters.)
  • The second, rarer kind of nearsightedness is refractive nearsightedness. Cornea and lens refract the light too strongly. Here too, the focal point lies in front of the retina > nearsightedness. In the following, I describe three possible biological changes that occur with nearsightedness. After that, I present some conflict causes and case studies.

Eyeball too long

Focal point in front of the retina

SBS of the Ciliary Muscle

HFs in the midbrain – topography still unknown

Ciliary Muscle

Nearsightedness caused by the ciliary muscle

According to CM, the ciliary muscle is an involuntary muscle. According to Dr. Hamer, it has involuntary and voluntary (striated) parts, which seems perfectly logical to me. In the following, I take both possibilities into consideration.

The ciliary muscle plays the main role in refractive nearsightedness. The interplay between this parasympathetic innervated ring muscle, the zonula fibers (suspension apparatus), and the lens is not easy to understand. In a tension-free state, the lens is a roundish, thick disk, which is connected with the ciliary muscle over the zonula fibers.

  • When the ciliary muscle tightens, the inner diameter of the ciliary body diminishes > the zonula fibers, on which the lens hangs, relax > the lens takes on its original form of a roundish thick disk = nearsighted adjustment.
  • When the ciliary muscle relaxes, the inner diameter of the ciliary body increases > the zonula fibers tighten > they pull on the lens > it becomes a flat disk = farsighted adjustment. Thus, the tension of the ciliary muscle behaves inversely to the tension on the lens. Tightened ciliary muscle > relaxed, thick lens. Relaxed ciliary muscle > tightened, flat lens. The “antagonist“ to the ciliary muscle is the inherent tension of the lens.
Progression Involuntary part of the muscle: Increased muscle tension in the active-phase > better seeing up close (= bio. function) > nearsightedness, if the conflict is active for a longer period. Voluntary (striated) part of the muscle: Necrosis or paralysis in the active-phase. Refilling in the repair phase. End of the repair phase or in persistent repair: the ciliary muscle is stronger than before (luxury group) > nearsightedness.
Non-conflictive It is very probable that nearsightedness can also happen with out a conflict with regard to the ciliary muscle and diagonal eye muscles: adjustment to constant near-vision use (school, computer, etc.).

SBS of the Outer Eye Muscles

HFs in the midbrain – topography still unknown

Inferior Oblique Muscle

The role of the outer eye muscles is underestimated in CM: e.g., focusing on an image.

The New York ophthalmologist and founder of eye training, Dr. Bates (1860-1931), researched the cause of nearsightedness for more than 40 years. He observed that the vision among his students varied greatly. He noticed that patients, whose lenses had been removed could see fairly well nevertheless (accommodation). This is something that simply should not occur according to the textbooks.

His credo: “The lens is not the main factor in the accommodation process.“ He discovered that the lens, when focusing, was aided by the upper and lower, oblique eye muscles. These two muscles build a ring around the eyeball. When they tighten simultaneously, the eyeball is squeezed lengthwise > improvement of near sight. Permanent tension of these muscles results in nearsightedness!

Dr. Bates and representatives of modern ophthalmology schools start from the standpoint that near vision under stress leads to lasting tension of these muscles. The body does nothing other than accommodate the (somewhat unnatural) demand for permanent near vision (nearsightedness – an adaptation process).

Eye training is an attempt to release the tension in these muscles.

This adaptation theory of Dr. Bates is confirmed by the fact that the numbers of nearsighted people increase with the level of civilization. In Japan, over 90% of the youth are nearsighted, among indigenous peoples, hardly any.

SBS of the Cornea

HFs sensory function – top of cerebral cortex

Nearsightedness due to cone-shaped thinning of the cornea (keratoconus)

A persistent, active conflict of the cornea causes it to become thinner and thinner. This results in the loss of its regular curvature and it becomes cone-shaped, pointing to the front = keratoconus > usually linked to a distortion of the cornea. This type of myopia can be clearly diagnosed. It cannot be completely compensated with glasses. Due to the increased corneal curvature, the light is increasingly refracted > myopia.

Conflict Strong visual-separation conflict. To lose sight of somebody.
Phase Persistent, active conflict

Nearsightedness: conflict, examples, therapy

Conflict First possibility: A person has the feeling that he does not belong. Someone or something is too far away. He misses somebody. “I would like to have a certain something or someone within sight of me.“
Bio. function A visual clinging to someone or something. The nearsightedness gives the illusion of being in a small, safe, and intact world.
Conflict Second possibility: A person does not want to see something in the distance, because it frightens them.
Bio. function Visually blocking something out. Subconsciously, one only wants to see in the near vicinity to feel safe or secure. “What I cannot see in the distance cannot scare me.“
Type of person Most often, people who tend to be introverted, fearful or hesitant are affected.
Examples While a boy is attending a summer camp, the other boys gang up on him and beat him. After these three weeks, he is nearsighted. A test of his vision shows a diopter of minus 1.5. (Archive Dr. Odum)
A child has to go to kindergarten. He does not like it there and would much prefer to be at home with his mother. (Archive B. Eybl)
Questions When did the nearsightedness begin? (Conflict must be previous). What is frightening “out there?” Why? Why do I want to retreat? Did ancestors have similar tendencies? (Look for conditioning).
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and resolve them in real life.
Avoid looking at things close up at an early age and avoid early learning pressure.
Spend more time in nature rather than with television and books.
Eye training (see bibliography.). Bach flowers (see p. 59): aspen and mimulus among others.
Until 1850, one rightly assumed that eyeglasses made bad eyesight worse and thus, they were not prescribed. In any case, it seems sensible not to fully correct the eyes, so that room for improvement remains.

Farsightedness (hyperopia)

Eyeball too short

Focal point behind the retina

In the case of farsightedness, the eyeball is too short in relation to the refractive power of the seeing apparatus > blurriness when looking at objects up close.

Possible causes

  • Farsightedness as an aging process? Yes, this might be true for those over 45; however, this surely does not apply to young people, because they sometimes become farsighted too. The fact is that the rigid core of the lens becomes enlarged with age, which is a burden on the elastic outer layer. This causes the lenses to lose their overall elasticity > without elasticity, sharp eyesight (accommodation) is not possible!
  • SBS of the outer eye muscles: Tension in the smooth eye muscles causes the eyeball to shorten = distance vision adjustment (see: p.112). In the case of a conflict, the tension can become permanent = farsightedness.
  • SBS of the ciliary muscle: Weakness or paralysis of the ciliary muscle due to a conflict > tension in the zonular fibers > a tug on the lens > it causes it to become a flat disk = farsightedness.
  • Callosity: Dr. Hamer explains farsightedness, as a shortening of the eyeball due to callosities in the rear (dorsal) part of the eyeball (see p 117).


Ciliary muscle

Medial rectus muscles

Conflict Not being able to see someone or something that is far away. Visual wandering and searching. “I want to see whatever is out there carefully since it might be dangerous!“
Example A little boy always wants to carry his favorite toy around with him. Suddenly, his parents take it away from him. Within a short time, he develops farsightedness with a diopter of plus 7. The boy keeps looking and looking. (Archive Dr. Odum)
SBS Medial rectus muscles and/or ciliary muscle.
Bio. function Good, long-distance eyesight in order to recognize someone or something more easily.
Phase Persistent active conflict.
Type of person Outward-oriented (extroverted) and energetic persons (“go getters“) tend to be affected more often.
Questions Farsightedness substantially before the age of 45? (> Look for the conflict’s cause). What is frightening out there? What am I looking for in the distance? Which conditioning is this based on? (Parents, ancestors)?
Therapy Determine the conflict or conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life.
Eye training can decidedly improve or stabilize farsightedness. However, this requires commitment, diligence, and perseverance. (For books, see bibliography). “As long as I live, I will remain curious and flexible.“
“I forgive myself and I forgive you.“


With astigmatism in CM, there is not a single focal point in front of the retina (nearsightedness) or behind the retina (farsightedness), but rather two or more focal points. This phenomenon is aptly called “lack of focal point.“

Deformation of the cornea is the most common cause of astigmatism, but there are others: astigmatism of the lens (rare) and astigmatism of the eye background (retina).

Possible causes

  • SBS of the cornea (thinning of the cornea p. 114).
  • SBS of the outer eye muscles: Varying amounts of tension in the outer eye muscles that brace the whole eyeball, so that symmetry is lost (see strabismus). See: p.112. The asymmetry can affect the cornea or the retina.
  • SBS of the vitreous body: A pulling of the vitreous body on the retina in the active-phase > distorted vision (see: p. 95f).
Conflict A person‘s internal vision – their expectations (of oneself or of others) – do not match reality. The two views cannot be brought into alignment.
Examples A child has a natural inner vision of a strong father. The father, however, is a dialysis patient. Unfortunately, one day his mother takes him to the hospital where he sees his ailing father, who is dependent on dialysis. (Archive Dr. Odum)
The father of a patient – 5 years old at the time – has become an alcoholic. He is drinking with his buddies and starts showing off his son‘s gymnastic stunts: “Hey look, he can do a headstand on a shot glass.“ For the boy, this is terribly embarrassing. He has to perform the stunt dressed only in his nightshirt. The real picture of his father does not match his inner vision. (B. Eybl)
SBS/Phase Cornea and/or external eye muscles. Persistent conflict.
Bio. function The distortion of reality protects the individual from the “hard reality.“
Questions When did the symptoms begin? (First conflict must have been before this. The diagnosis usually takes place after the first symptoms > estimate when the SBS began). Which expectations didn’t match up with reality at the time in question? Is the conflict still ongoing? What could be recurring? Why do I have such high expectations? Which conditioning has made me into who I am today? (Pregnancy, birth, parents)?
Therapy Determine the conflict and conditioning and, if possible, resolve them in real life.
Astigmatism can be improved considerably through eye training.
