The Biological Root Cause of Dermatitis, Eczema, Hives and More

In Germanic Healing Knowledge, an Epidermal program (eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, hives, vitiligo) is caused from a separation conflict experienced as a “loss of physical contact” (biological purpose explained below).

The human body is ancient. While our lifestyles have dramatically changed, aside from some evolution (like the shape of our jaws), the human body is still made the same. We are hard-wired for survival. Every action that our bodies take, is made to keep us alive.

A separation conflict can mean:

  • being separated from someone you don’t want to be separated from (common in babies and kids when mom goes back to work or daycare begins),
  • wanting to separate from someone that you can’t get away from (common in school age years with bullying, or at home/workplace where arguments, scolding or punishment may take place)
  • wanting to separate from a place or something close to the skin (face mask, clothing, shoes, wet diapers), or
  • having to separate from something that one is no longer allowed or able to touch (a toy, musical instrument, steering wheel).

At the moment of separation, the psyche sends a message to your brain that activates a biological program in the epidermis. In this case, we’ll have cell loss in the epidermis. While this cell loss is often not visible at first, symptoms during this stage will cause the skin to become dry, rough, flaky, pale, and cold due to poor blood circulation. Eventually, the skin may crack causing fissures that may bleed. Short-term memory loss may also occur (think ADD and Dementia), so we “forget” the pain of the separation.

On the scalp, the flaky skin shows as dandruff. Deeper ulceration of the epidermal skin will result in hair loss. This can apply to pets as well, as the 5 Biological Laws affects humans and animals alike.

Because of the loss of epidermal cells, the sensitivity of the skin decreases, so that on a biological/physical level, we don’t “feel” the pain of the separation. If the separation conflict is severe, the skin can become completely numb.

Once the conflict is resolved, and the separation conflict is no longer an issue (child is back home with mom, etc), the body send specific microbes to the epidermis in order to Starr replenishing and rebuilding the cells that were lost. Healing occurs in a fluid environment, so edema will be sent to the skin, while your highly intelligent body completes this process. It is at this point that the skin swells up, becomes red, inflamed, irritated, itchy, and sensitive to touch. Small fluid-filled edemas may appear as blisters. After all of the cell loss has been replenished, the blisters dry up and the skin normalizes (provided there are no conflict relapses).

These skin conditions become chronic when we are repeatedly exposed to the same conflict over and over again (child goes to daycare every day and the separation conflict re-activates each time), or when the initial conflict is re-triggered by what we call tracks. Tracks can be places, people, smells, tastes, foods, noises, etc. that your psyche associates with the initial separation conflict and now perceives those things as a threat.
