Sun 23 April 2017, 11:00 – 17:30 IST
In the spring of 1949 Bruno Groening gained worldwide fame as the "miracle doctor" of Herford. Tens of thousands flocked to see him wherever he spoke. Incredible healings occurred. All the major newspapers and magazines reported on them, and radio, newsreel and film also dealt with the phenomenon. The high point was seen at the Traberhof in Rosenheim, where tens of thousands gathered daily in the autumn of 1949. Incredible scenes took place - the lame could walk again, the blind see again.
Content. The film follows the trail of Bruno Groening, illuminating the individual stations of his life and work openly, objectively and sensitively. In all, Seventy hours of film were shot. It soon became clear that the original concept of producing a film to fill a single evening was untenable. The subject couldn't be covered in only two hours; the life of Bruno Groening couldn't be compressed into a conventional format. It became a three-part film with a running time of five hours.
Effect. Many viewers report how they have suddenly perceived an energy, a tingling, or a streaming in their body when watching the film. For most of them it was a completely new experience. Some even tell of the disappearance of pain, handicaps and other ailments. Here are a few examples: M.B.: "during the film I felt a tingling throughout my body along with a pressure and pain between the eyes." G.F.: "during the second and third parts of the film I was overcome by an energy that filled up my entire body. Before the film I had been in hospital with asthma. Yesterday I saw my family doctor and he informed me that he can't understand why I no longer have chronic sounds in my lungs. If he hadn't known my medical history and hadn't had the medical report he would have said I was completely healthy. The energy is still there." C.E.: "I have been severely handicapped from birth, paralysed and spastic, confined to a wheelchair and able to move my left hand only with difficulty. It is also somewhat shortened. During the film I was able to stretch out my hand and my fingers loosened. That had never before been possible. After the film, I had a feeling of great release. I felt much lighter."
Successes through the documentary film, "The Phenomenon Bruno Groening"
The first Success concerning people who were freed from their complaints while at the cinema watching the film have been verified by MWF doctors and are now available.
Free from hip pain with chronic tendonitis. Silke Maydt, 33, suffered for about a year and a half from severe pain in her left hip that radiated to the knee. An orthopaedic surgeon diagnosed an inflammation of the tendon insertions. On January 11, 2004 she saw the documentary film on Bruno Groening. During the drive home the pain in her hip was more severe than ever. On the next day it was gone, never to return. The doctor's commentary: "Considering its 1½ year progressive (continually worsening) course and the failure of previous attempts at therapy, this healing is inexplicable from a medical point of view."
Spastic bronchitis disappeared after over 39 years. Horst Höck ,68, had suffered for over 30 years from bronchitis followed by asthma attacks. Two or three times a night he would have attacks with feelings of suffocation and constriction. On February 7, 2004 he attended the documentary film. During the second part he had a severe asthma attack that lasted around 15 minutes. Since then the complaints have disappeared. A doctor's commentary: "Experience has shown that healing is not to be expected in a longterm illness of 30 years duration. The sudden disappearance of the chronic complaints is therefore unusual. From a medical point of view there is no doubt a connection between the healing and attendance at the showing of the documentary film."
Healed after 38 years of chronic back pain. Helga Maria Arend, 58, suffered for 38 years from back pain in the lumbar regionlumbar spine syndrome with malposition. She had pain when lying, standing or walking. The area of the lumbar spine became stiff and she had the feeling as if her back were going to break in two. In the autumn of 2003 she went to a showing of the documentary film. She was feeling very bad on that day. She was able to make it through the five hours only with pain. But when the film had ended she was a "new person". From that moment on she has had no more back pain. As a doctor said, "the spontaneous healing of a chronic disease lasting many decades after seeing the documentary film is for me inexplicable from a medical point of view."
