therapy review META-Medicine: An interview with Richard Flook R THE ORIGINS


ichard Flook has been a practitioner for 20-yrs and has been involved in the develop- ment of META-Medicine since it started in 2004, he’s one of a handful of MM Mas- ter Trainers as well as an NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner. He has a long his- tory of training others worldwide and he trained to Practitioner Level in EFT. He is one of 8-board members for the IMMA (International META-Medicine Association) which comprises doctors, PhD scientists, alternative and complementary practi-


Dr Ryke Geerd Hamer developed the foundations of META-Medicine (MM) back in the 1970’s, building on a model started by Penfield in the 1950-60’s where a link between the brain and organs was established. And a student of Hamers, Johannes Fisslinger expanded his work to add energ to the model and was the first to coined the phrase ‘META-Medicine’.


Richard Flook, came across Hamer’s work in the early 1990’s while in search of his own answers as to why his mother died of Breast Cancer when Richard was only 11, as his mother had left the family home to move hundreds of miles away 5-yrs earlier. And Hamer’s work started to pro-


vide some clarity.


THE BLUEPRINT At that stage Hamer had mapped the brain based on the Embryology model that Western Medicine teaches to all doctors but is mainly used by those specialising in prema- ture births.


Hamer’s model shows that every organ, muscle, bone and tissue has a specific embryonic-layer and location in the brain that provides the specific information needed when it comes to unravelling causation.

tioners. In 2009 he wrote the book ‘Why Am I Sick’ and founded his company of the same name. Richard’s application of META-Medicine is strongly influenced by his NLP back- ground. In this regard he’s made a unique contribution to the META-Medicine model by including the emotional, social and environmental aspects of disease. His work demonstrates the disease process in some of the following examples:


- Demonstrating how pain comes and goes


- How itching can be increased or decreased in a condition like eczema - Showing how depression and mania fire off in two different brain hemispheres


It’s remarkable in its application and clients are astounded when you hit the mark, which is a joy to see. In the book Richard walks through the effects that impact dis- ease on a number of levels. By explaining the behavioural changes a person goes through and how these affect our environment (which often changes as the result of disease) goes a long way to illustrating a range of factors that are vital to aid lasting recovery. Richard’s contribution to the MM model allows the practitioner a really in- telligent diagnostic tool providing a strong pre-empt to any therapeutic intervention.


The 2-Phases of Disease


META-Medicine recognises that there are two phases to disease and this is broken up into 9-stages:


1. The ‘norm’ 2. A conflict shock occurs (UDIN)


3. The body goes into stress which can be identified by cold extremities, inter- rupted sleep patterns, an issue plays round in the head. Mostly we feel okay but there are some diseases such as panic attacks and depression that show up at this stage.

4. The Reversal Point is when some- thing occurs to alleviate the original shock and the mind/body system feels relief


5. Most physical symptoms arrive, such as pain, feeling tired, fever, infection and this is when we go to see the doctor


6. The symptoms reach a height of intensity called the Healing Crisis (HC). This can be quite scary depending on the presenting symptoms but can range anywhere from a headache to a full- blown heart attack (as an example)
