Written by Mokichi Okada in 1952


Needless to say, pneumonia and tuberculosis would be the most closely related diseases to cold. They are the most serious problems especially in Japan now, so I need to fully explain them. First of all, the original cause of pneumonia and tuberculosis is, of course, a cold. As I explained it in the previous chapter, even though purification action called a cold occurs, medical treatment tries to stop it as much as possible in various ways. As I have also already described, the worst ways in them are medicine and cooling a fever. What is medicine originally? It is all the toxic substances. Despite this fact, why did toxic substances come into use as medicine? It is because, as I have described, they are most effective to stop purification action.

Here, I explain what the nature of purification action is. As I previously described, it is an excellent natural ability that is inherited to eliminate toxic substances from the body. Therefore, the potential of purification action depends on whether this ability is strong or not. More than anybody, young people commonly suffer from tuberculosis as they have strong purification ability. It is also the same reason that tuberculosis patients decrease as they become mature to old. Young people and children commonly suffer from various infectious diseases for the same reason. When people suffer from a disease, in other words, when purification action occurs, medical science tries to stop it as much as possible. Weakening their physical strength is more than anything to stop the action and putting poison into a human body was regarded as the only way of it. By using this method, a patient’s strength is weakened, his purification action becomes weak and the symptoms of the disease are relieved.

Then, why is cooling a fever wrong? It is because it cools the fever which should dissolve toxic substances. Therefore, purification action becomes weak, toxic substances are hardened as it used to and the pain is reduced. Putting a compress is, of course, almost the same but slightly different. Since a human body constantly breathes even through skin capillaries, the parts of putting a compress are suffocated. As a result, purification action stops and the symptoms become milder. An injection is recently quite popular. It is because the medicine containing strong toxic substances has the risk of addiction so that it injects through the skin.

As I described above, when a person has a cold, as long as purification action is stopped by toxic substances or by using other ways, possessing toxins are a little reduced but most of them are remained and hardened again in the body. Along with this, new toxins are added. Therefore, toxins are accumulated every time to have a cold. When they reach a certain level, purification action occurs at a time. This condition is pneumonia as I previously explained it as the reason for a debt.

The most peculiar symptom of pneumonia is lots of sputum accumulating in the lungs, so that wheezing sound is extreme. Wheezing is the sound of sputum every time alveoli move when breathing. Then, dyspnoea is the condition that the volume of lungs is reduced by lots of sputum and frequent breathing is needed to inhale the required amount of air. For this reason, when a person suffers from pneumonia, provide none of the medical treatment and leave it as it is. If doing so, phlegm will be coughed up as much as possible and pneumonia will be steadily cured.

However, medical treatment tries to stop this purification action in every possible way. It uses strong medicine especially for pneumonia because it is very poisonous and strongly effective to stop purification action. For such reason, extreme friction occurs between the strong purification and the strong suspension of purification, which involves severe suffering. Therefore, together with losing appetite, consuming energy due to high fever and so on, a patient is lead to debilitation and death. I have no words for such fallacy of medical science.

As I described above, pneumonia is the condition of intense purification. It happens to a person who has strong physical strength, whereas mild purification action happens to a weak person. This condition is tuberculosis. When a doctor examines a patient for the first time, the most decisive way of all should be x-ray photography today. It is photographed clouds or vomicae in the lungs. A patient is identified as tuberculosis from this photo. However, medical science has not known the cause of these clouds. Then, I describe the cause of this. As I explained in the previous chapter ‘a cold’, in the beginning when liquefied toxic substances once enter the lungs and stay there, medical science tries to stop purification action as much as possible. As a result, sputum is not excreted, remained in the lungs and becomes hardened as days go by. They are clouds. If so, it would say that is absolutely a man-made product. Therefore, when the liquid enters the lungs in the beginning, there is no abnormality at all. Then, the condition that hardened sputum is in relatively upper parts of the lungs is called catarrhal pneumonia or anal lymph gland. There is a similar disease called pulmonary infiltration to them. It is minor pleurisy or the condition that toxic substances staying near ribs are liquefied by purification action and try to infiltrate and be discharging sputum in the lungs. In this case, medical science also tries to harden them, so that the condition doesn’t improve. Those diseases will be steadily cured if they are left as they are.

Once a patient is diagnosed with tuberculosis, like a cold, medical treatment tries to stop purification action as much as possible. The best way of stopping this action would be a so-called rest method, which is eagerly recommended these days. However, this method is suspicious. If a healthy person had a rest for a month, he would decrease appetite through lack of exercise, decline physical strength, become looking pale as staying at home, apparently grow weak and get out of breath when moving even a little. The same applies to a sick person. Worse still, toxic substances are put more and lots of animal protein called nutrition are taken. Since they are all the way to have a patient weak, a person must grow weak even if he is not a tuberculosis patient.

As a result of using such a debility method, purification ability is extremely weakened as expected. The symptoms become subsided and at last, there is no fever, cough, and discharging sputum, so to be pleased as it seems to be recovered. However, it returns to the condition before purification occurred. Worse still, it contrarily gains toxic substances, weakens physical strength. It merely becomes passive lull and is not truly cured. Therefore, a patient might suddenly get worse at every opportunity, fall into critical condition and finally result in death. It often happens and doctors would have experienced such a course a lot. From this point of view, it is obvious that medical science never says to be cured but to be hardened. When a patient also exercises even for a bit by chance while he is in progress, he immediately has a fever. Then a doctor admonishes him in a hurry. It is because the purification ability under sedation raises its head by exercise. That is actually a good condition. It often happens that a patient is relieved and goes back to his normal life when he is said to be cured at last after taking a long time but his illness comes back soon and he goes right back at the starting point. It is because that the toxic substances, which are finally hardened in many years, suddenly start to dissolve. As I described above, it is obvious how wrong present medical treatment is. Speaking frankly, it is not too much to say that medical science does increase tuberculosis.

Here, I would like you to beware of something about mycobacterium tuberculosis very much. Medical science is afraid of it as it is epidemical. I don’t say it is not but most of it is naturally developed. As I previously described, in the beginning when sputum enters into the lungs, medical treatment hardens and don’t put it out of them. As time passed by, it decays and microorganisms are generated. This is mycobacterium tuberculosis. Such sputum has bad smell and is sticky. You can imagine that all things decay when they become old and microorganisms are generated when rotting. This is a principle of substances. Moreover, the favourable condition of body temperature helps this process.

From this point of view, at the beginning of having a cold, if sputum staying in the lungs were excreted as much as possible, that would be all finished. Nevertheless, medical science tries not to put it out, let it decay, generate even bacterium, and finally make vomicae by the encroachment of bacterium. To come to the point, it would say this is a goodwill act of misconduct. Unless being aware of this, we would never know there would become innumerable victims in the future.


Lung diseases and Toxic Substances


When I describe a present treatment of tuberculosis, there is a point to note. That is about pneumothorax treatment, which is regarded as the most effective method now. This method is to restrain the lung activity by atrophying and shrinking alveoli as much as possible when there are vomicae in lungs. In a word, this is the rest method of lungs. If using this method, thick sputum which causes vomicae is hardened and the vomicae themselves are also shrunk. As a result, the symptom once becomes lull. However, when a patient goes back to his normal life, purification action recurs and he goes right back at the starting point. Most cases are like this. If so, it is certainly not to be a fundamental treatment.

Other than tuberculosis, I also briefly explain lung diseases. Pulmonary gangrene is the disease that a tumour forms between the lung and the lung membrane. When you leave the tumour as it is, it swells as much as possible and naturally makes a hole. Then a large amount of bloody pus comes out as phlegm so that pulmonary gangrene is completely cured. It is a kind of purification. Since medical science stops this purification, it is hardly cured and ends up with a bad result. Then, miliary tuberculosis is the disease that alveoli have a rush. It is like eczema on the skin and also a kind of purification. When you leave them naturally, the pus comes out of them and miliary tuberculosis is completely cured. The next disease is lung cancer which is caused because a person has lots of meat. Meat contains a kind of poison which makes blood cloudy, and then it stays in the lung and once becomes a hard swelling. It comes out as sputum one after other by purification action. However, this disease has obstinate characteristic and it is obvious to take time to be cured. It is caused by the lack of a vegetarian meal. Therefore, it is completely cured by only having more vegetable. You would agree with this since lung cancer is more common for western people who have lots of meat. The next is pneumonia. It often co-occurs when a person has measles but is nothing. You might be surprised at frequent breathing but it is caused as measles form on alveoli and the volume of the lung is decreased. If you leave it as it is, it will be surely cured in a few days.

Then, laryngeal tuberculosis is a disease related to tuberculosis. It occurs at the last stage of tuberculosis. Its characteristic symptoms include patient’s voice becoming hoarse and the difficulty in swallowing as he has a sore throat when eating. Since the patient’s phlegm is highly poisonous, it simulates the mucous membrane of trachea and throat, which causes catarrh when it goes down through his throat. This phlegm is the oldest and highly decayed. Therefore, it is hardly cured while the phlegm is coming out, so there’s no hope. Furthermore, the patient becomes severely weak at that time. For these reasons, a doctor gives him up as hopeless, when he is diagnosed as laryngeal tuberculosis. The next disease related to tuberculosis is intestinal tuberculosis. When a patient suffers from this disease, they have countless consolidated materials forming around the whole abdominal region with a focused on the navel. It is, of course, easily found as it hurts when you press it. It also has a little fever. These consolidated materials are excreted as diarrhoea almost every day. Since these materials are hardened toxic substances, it cannot be cured unless a patient stops having medicine. Because of diarrhoea, it debilitates a patient more, so even a doctor is afraid of this disease.

At the end of this chapter, I describe why tuberculosis is especially persistent and hardly cured with comparison to other diseases. Once a person is suffered from tuberculosis, various medicines are put in the body from the beginning as medicine is mainly used for the treatment after all. It causes the patient to prevent recovery, so he becomes impatient and wants for all kinds of medicine. It is such a cat-and-mouse game. The toxic substances are gradually accumulated in the body and nothing becomes possible. Since such toxic substances poison the body, the disease finally cannot become cured. At this stage, even phlegm smells like medicine. What a terrifying fault it could be! Therefore, the third stage of tuberculosis would be said ‘a toxic substance disease’. I often treated such patients and the purpose of treatment is only to eliminate toxic substances. As toxic substances decrease in the body, the patient is gradually recovered. It clearly shows that my treatment does work. Note, however, that this way of eliminating toxic substances is Johrei method which I found.
