Johrei Saves America, written by Mokichi Okada, 1953
When the purification occurs, toxic medicine, which solidifies around the outer part of the lung, tries to infiltrate into the lung. However, it is not easy to do so because the distance between the hardening part and the lung is not close enough, the phlegm is thick, and the lung membrane is also thick. Therefore, the lung itself breathes deeply to inflate the toxin. This symptom is called asthma. This condition causes a patient to have an attack and a terrible cough. Therefore, when the phlegm comes out, the patient is relieved for a while. When a patient recovers from pneumonia, the symptoms of asthma they have are also relieved. It is because a lot of phlegm was discharged. This is one of the characteristics of pneumonia. Since the attack of asthma is very painful and a patient is almost out of breath, they want to be relieved even temporarily. They consequently have an injection, which becomes addictive. As a result, the attack, which occurred once a week in the beginning, more often occurs. Some patients finally have the attack a few or even dozens of times in a day. In this case, they are almost dead and the medical treatment cannot help them. On the other hand, they are completely and easily cured by Johrei.
