“We believe in an integrative approach and at the end the client has to decide which direction to go.” International Meta-Medicine Association founder Johannes Fisslinger explains his approach to treating clients, plus Meta-Medicine secrets revealed
I recently blogged a series of articles about the International Meta-Medicine Association (IMMA), an LA-based integrative medicine organisation founded in 2004 by Johannes Fisslinger, inventor of the “Aura Video Station.”
For the uninitiated, IMMA – via its online university, Meta-Health University (MHU) – claims to have trained over 1,000 practitioners in the “art and science of self-healing,” an elaborate philosophy of preventive health based on the discredited theories of Ryke Geerd Hamer, a ghoulish German doctor who lost his medical licence in 1986 after a number of patients in his care died.
Despite claims that Meta-Medicine is effective in treating everything from minor allergies and back pain, to serious conditions like diabetes and even cancer, Fisslinger maintains that MHU is “teaching only,” and that Meta-Medicine is “not really a therapy.”
However, per this screenshot from March 2016, MHU recently offered “Analysis and Therapy Sessions” to “resolve your acute or chronic health issues.”
When asked about his medical credentials and if he treats clients at MHU, Fisslinger replied: “I don’t take clients right now… Just don’t have time.”
When asked how MHU helps to “resolve [a client’s] acute or chronic health issues,” if not using therapy, he replied: “As you can see in their profiles everyone is trained in different modalities from medical doctors…to energy psychology therapists.”
He continued: “But they all use the foundational knowledge of Meta-Health for their analysis process and to find out what actually triggers the health issues and to know the organ-mind-brain connection.”
The “organ-mind-brain connection” is Fisslinger’s theory that specific physical symptoms correspond with specific traumatic experiences, claims originating in Hamer’s speculative model of disease, the “German New Medicine” (GNM).
In 2001, a Swiss study found “no evidence” for Hamer’s “dangerous” claims, stating: “in many respects, the theory of the New Medicine contradicts the findings of scientific medicine, not only in terms of the aetiology and diagnosis of cancers but also regarding the course and treatment of illness.”
According to a series of 2009 reports by Norwegian television station TV 2, at least three people died after they were advised by members of IMMA’s Advisory Council, Dagfrid Kolås and Bent Madsen, to abandon conventional cancer treatments.
Despite IMMA’s sordid history, aspiring Meta-Health practitioners are willing to pay up to ten thousand dollars to learn the mysterious secrets of this self-proclaimed “revolutionary new healing paradigm.”
— How Meta-Medicine practitioners treat clients
Practitioners guide clients through the so-called “self-healing process” using techniques derived from other popular complementary and alternative therapies, including: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy (TLT), Matrix Reimprinting (MP), Advanced Clearing Energetics (ACE) and Dianetics (Scientology).
Practitioners take cues from the “Meta-Health Therapy Script,” a lengthy three-part diagnostic and treatment plan.
Prior to meeting, practitioners take a client’s personal details and medical history, including information about “hormonal status,” “allopathic medications” and “toxins.”
For clients with more complex symptoms, practitioners are advised to consult Wikipedia, as Fisslinger explains in this December 2014 “Meta-Health Analysis and Therapy” video.
Before treatment can begin, practitioners are required to inform clients about traditional and alternative methods of treatment. Per this “Legal Education” slide from Fisslinger’s live tutoring sessions, the client is then asked “to decide which way to go.”
Per this slide from another live session, practitioners “create rapport” with a client prior to them signing a release form (in NLP, “rapport” is “the ability to relate to others in a way that creates trust and understanding”).
During treatment, clients are instructed to “feel the organ (tissue) that relates to your symptom” and to “feels [sic], see and hear your organ talk to you.”
After a brief clapping exercise to determine the “dominant” and “non-dominant” sides of a client’s body (this is said to help “find the root cause of the symptom”), clients are asked to visualise where in their organ tissue their symptoms are located.
Clients are then asked to pinpoint the exact moment when their symptoms began. If a practitioner has established a “deep rapport” with a client, they might introduce Hamer’s theory that physical symptoms can be traced to an emotionally traumatic event (referred to here as an UDIN, meaning “unexpected, dramatic, isolating, no strategy”).
Practitioners then confirm which “phase” a client is in (according to Hamer, there are two phases of disease, “stress” and “regeneration”). The idea is that if a client’s symptoms can be triggered by a traumatic experience, then they can be relieved by making the client aware of the root cause.
Clients are again instructed to “breathe deeply into your (organ tissue)” and to “ask your unconscious mind what e-motion is stored/trapped in that organ tissue” (as explained in Fisslinger’s 2013 Meta-Health ebook, “e-motion” is energy “that has been ‘trapped or stored’ inside the organ tissue at the time of the traumatic experience”).
After identifying their “e-motion,” clients are asked whether the “root-cause event” related to their symptoms occurred “before, during, or after” they were born. If the client is unsure, practitioners tell them to “take whatever comes up” from their unconscious mind.
Finally, practitioners apply some NLP memory techniques and the client is said to release their trapped “e-motions…into the matrix/universe/source.” To ensure “lasting well-being,” clients take steps to reframe “negative or limiting beliefs” and “imprint new behavior.”
Before parting ways, practitioners write a “lifestyle prescription” intended to benefit a client’s mental, physical and social well-being. Recommendations range from benign platitudes (“follow your heart”) to advice regarding emergency medical treatment.
