Organ Walls – Submucosa Layer

Organ Walls – Submucosa Layer


The submucosa is the layer of dense irregular connective tissue or loose connective tissue that supports the mucosa, as well as joins the mucosa to the bulk of overlying smooth muscle (fibers running circularly within layer of longitudinal muscle) in hollow inner organs. Blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and nerves (all supplying the mucosa) will run through here. The tissue of endodermal origin that Dr Hamer calls submucosa is part of the mucosa with the functions and reaction pattern of brain-stem-related tissue.

“Functional self-worth” regarding supporting and protecting the function of the organ

Emotions and Thoughts

Unrest, Uncertainty, Frustration related to locality and organ function:

  • I can’t manage that.
  • Nobody ever helps me!
  • What if I don’t get this done?
  • I don’t meet expectations.
  • My self-defence doesn’t work!
  • Why am I treated so badly?


Naturally, my body and the universe work things out for me. I love and accept myself as I am.


Stress Phase Symptoms

The submucosa tissue will normally react together or following the conflict reaction of the mucosa or the muscular layer in organ walls. In the stress phase, the structure gets weakened and the lymphatic or blood vessels decrease function. This is usually painless and hardl detected. Especially in chronic stress-activity of the mucosa, the submucosa gets damaged. Possible Diagnosis: Leaky Gut Syndrome

Restoration Phase A

Inflammatory and edematous processes. Diagnoses may be intestinal inflammation, gastroenteritis, lymphoma.

Restoration Phase B

Filling up and strengthening the lesion. Diagnoses may be perineurioma and leiomyoma. Recurring processes can result in submucous fibrosis, an aggregation of collagen fibres leading to rigidity. Possible diagnoses: systemic sclerosis, visceral scleroderma, M. Whipple, malabsorption syndrome, M. Crohn.

Biological Meaning:

The biological meaning lies at the end of the restoration phase, ideally resulting in strengthened structures supporting the organ wall better but not lessening functions of motility and drainage.


In double organs or organs with a large surface, handedness is relevant and the affected side refers to mother/child or partner theme.


  • The client has indigestion with constipation and diarrhoea for 20 years. She can’t let go of the anger towards her mother who did not allow her to study and forced her to earn money to feed the family instead. When she processes and finds forgivenes, her stomach gurgles and a warm feeling floods her body. After this, her energy is transformed and digestion gradually improves. (Killoran, MHU archive).
  • The client has watery diarrhoea, fatigue and the gut is gurgly. Since childhood when she was mistreated by her mother, she has the belief that she can never do anything right, and that nobody supports her. There is unreleased anger. After recognizing the pattern, she creates a therapy plan with a focus on wellbeing, mindfulness and fun with the family. (Hansen, MHU archive)
  • The client was diagnosed with leaky gut and Hashimoto. She can’t digest gluten and has reflux and burning stomach ache. In her life is a pattern of high expectations and ambivalence because of suppressed aggression. As a child, she was a target of her father’s rage, which he never could clear. She learned to mistrust her body. After renegotiation and release of the emotions, and reevaluation of her symptoms, she finds new confidence in her body.

Additional Information

Differential Diagnosis

Endodermal Mucosa (Brain stem, +/-) Stress (indigestion/survival theme): functional gain in secretion or absorption, painless polyps or adenoma growth; Restoration phase: inflammatory infection with nightly sweating and low fever.

Ectodermal Mucosa (Cerebral Cortex -/+) Stress (social anger): reduced functionality, ulceration of the tissue (in the digestive tract with hyperesthesia), Restoration phase: inflammatory infection, high fever, possibly proliferation.

Smooth Organ Muscle (Midbrain +/-) often reacts together with mucosa creating hypertension in the stress phase, spasms during the healing peak, and hyperperistalsis in the restoration phase.

Mucosa-Associated Lymphatic Tissue (Cerebral Medulla -/+) Stress (integrity and clearing capability): intoxication, immune suppression; Restoration phase: inflammation, lymphoma; Chronic: excessive immune reaction, “autoimmune disease”
