御教え『腎臓病と其他の病』

「文明の創造、科学篇」昭和27(1952)年

腎臓は体内機能中、三大機能に次いでの重要なる役目をしているもので、これは医学でも唱えるごとく、一旦腎臓へ集溜されたる液中から、貴重なるホルモンを抽出すると共に、廃物液体である尿は膀胱へ送られるのである。ところが厄介な事には、腎臓が完全に活動されるとしたら右の通りであるが、実際上幼児から少年、青年、壮年と年を重ねるに従って、漸次働きが鈍るのが通例でその原因は腎臓が萎縮するからである。ではなぜ萎縮するかというと、腎臓が前述のごとく、必要なものと不必要なものとが分けられる場合、右の二者以外の異物が混じる場合がある。この異物こそ言うまでもなく薬毒であって、これがどう処理されるかというと、ホルモンにも尿にもならないので、腎臓の表皮を滲透して、背部腎臓面に浸出し僅かずつ溜るのである。それが固結し腎臓を圧迫するから、腎臓は漸次萎縮し、ホルモン産出は減少する(不感症はこの原因が多い)と共に尿の処理も鈍化し、その幾分はこれも外部へ浸出するから、薬毒に追加され、両毒合併して毒結はいよいよ増大する以上、脊柱の両側に溜り上向延長しつつ、ついに肩や頸の辺にまで及ぶのである。肩や首が凝るのはこれであって、面白い事にはこの両毒結を判別する事が出来る。すなわち患部を押せば薬毒の方は固くて痛み、頑固性であるが、尿毒の方はやや柔軟でほとんど痛みがない。そうして毒素はついに頭脳内にまで進入するので、その結果浄化が起るそれが頭重、頭痛はもちろん、脳膜炎、日本脳炎、脳脊髄膜炎、脳溢血等、すべての脳疾患である。この頭脳内の毒素の有無を知るのははなはだ簡単で、頭脳に手を触れてみれば直ぐ判る。すなわち少しでも温味があれば毒素のある証拠で、温い程毒素が多い訳だが、現代人で無熱の人は恐らく一人もあるまい。

そして前頭部に固結した毒素の、急激強烈な浄化が脳膜炎であり、この病気が児童に多いのは、浄化力が旺盛であるからである。すなわちこの病気は高熱と共に、前頭部の激痛と目が開けられないのが特異性で、これは眩しいのと眩暈(めまい)とのためである。しかしこれも放置しておけば、毒結は溶解し涙、鼻汁等になって排泄され、完全に治るのである。しかも予後病気以前よりも頭脳明晰となり、児童などは学業の成績も優良となるので、これは医師も一般人も意外に思うのである。ところが医療は、氷冷等で固めるため、一旦無熱となり、治ったようでもその固結が機能の活動を阻害し、痴呆症や、その他種々の不具的症状を表わすのである。

その他として、彼の日本脳炎であるが、これは統計によるも五歳から十歳くらいまでが、最も多いとされている。これによっても判るごとく、夏日炎天下に帽子も被らないで遊ぶ場合、脳は強烈な日光の直射を受けるから、その刺戟によって背部、肩等にある毒素が頭脳に向かって集中を開始する。その際一旦延髄付近に集溜するので、その部に手を触るれば棒状の固結を見るが、それが高熱によって溶解、後頭内に侵入するや、非常に睡くなるのである。ところが医療は氷冷で固めるから、予後脳膜炎と等しく、種々な不具的症状を残すのである。しかしこの病気も放置しておけば、後脳内に入った毒素は、頭脳を通過して目及び鼻口から、血膿となってさかんに排泄され、出るだけ出ればそれで完全に治ってしまうのである。まず全治まで一週間とみればいい。しかも予後脳膜炎と同様、児童などは非常に学校の成績が良くなるのみならず、初めから生命の危険などは絶対にないにかかわらず、死ぬというのは全く氷冷等の、誤れる逆療法を行うからである。そうして日本脳炎は夏期羅病するに対し、冬期に起るのが脳脊髄膜炎である。これは日本脳炎と同様、延髄付近に毒素が棒状に固結するが、これは夏と異い日光に晒されていないから、中途で止まるという訳である。この病気の特異性は右のごとき棒状のため、首は前後に動かず、ちょうど丸太棒のような形で良く判るのであるが、この経過も日本脳炎と同様であるから略す事とする。

次に脳疾患の外の種々の症状を詳しく書いてみよう。

前述のごとく萎縮腎のため、頭部に向かって進行する毒素は、延髄付近にも固結するので、眼球に送血する血管が圧迫され、眼は貧血を発す事になる。つまり眼の栄養不足で、そのため視力が弱り、遠方まで見得る力が足りない。これが近視眼の原因である。何よりも右の固結を溶解するに従って、近視眼は全治するに見て明らかである。乱視も同様の原因であるが、ただ乱視の方は、浄化のため人により固結状態が絶えず動揺し、血管を不規則に圧迫するため、視力も動揺するからである。また底翳(そこひ)は眼底に毒素が溜結し、視神経を遮断するから見えないのである。白内障、緑内障は、眼球そのものに毒素が固結するので、これも放置しておけば自然に溶解し全治するが、医療は点眼薬や眼球注射等を行うから、この薬毒のため毒素は固まってしまい、治るべき眼病も治らない結果になるのである。そうしてすべての眼病は、頭脳に集溜した毒素が、出口を求めて眼球から排泄されようとし、一旦眼球に集中し、再び溶けて膿、目脂(めやに)、涙等となって出るのであるから、放任しておけば長くは掛るが、必ず治るものである。またトラホームは頭脳の毒素が眼瞼(まぶた)の裏の粘膜から排泄されようとし、発疹となって排膿されるので、これも自然に簡単に治るものである。

次に鼻に関する病であるが、鼻茸(はなたけ)、肥厚性鼻炎、鼻加答児(カタル)等は、いずれも頭脳の毒素が一旦鼻の両側、鼻の奥、鼻口等に集溜し、排泄されるのであるから、これも自然に治癒すべきを、医学は種々の逆方を施す結果、治らない事になるのである。また中耳炎は耳下腺及び淋巴腺の毒結が高熱により溶解穿骨(せんこつ)し、一旦中耳に入り、鼓膜を破って排泄されるそれらの痛みであるから、これらも二、三日そのままにしておけば、順調に治癒されるのである。

次に扁桃腺炎であるが、これも淋巴腺付近の毒素が、日を重ねるに従い、扁桃腺に固結し高熱によって溶解、粘膜を破って排泄されるという極く簡単な浄化作用で結構なるものであるが、医学はルゴール等の塗布薬を用い、浄化を妨害するので拗(こじ)れると共に、ついに膨大し手術の止むなきに至るのである。ゆえに読者諸君は試みに、今度扁桃腺の発った場合、何もせずに放っておいてみられたい。すると短時日で順調によく治ってしまうばかりか、起る毎に段々軽くなり、ついに全治するのである。これは私が慢性扁桃腺炎を治した経験と、多数の人に教えた結果、例外なく根治したに見ても確実である。

ここで面白い事がある。それは多い病気とは言えないが、割合厄介なものに歯槽膿漏があるが、これも淋巴腺付近の毒素が、歯茎(はぐき)を目掛けて集溜し、血膿となって排泄されようとする一種の浄化であるから、私はこんな汚いものはないというのである。それは元々尿の古くなったものが、口中から出る訳だからである。これを治すのは訳はない、歯茎を固いブラシで摩擦すれば、血膿が出るだけ出てそれで治ってしまうものである。

右によっても分るごとく、最初に述べた寒〔感〕冒の原因である肩から上に固結する毒素は、すべて腎臓が元である事は明らかである。としたら寒冒も結核も肺炎もほとんどの病気は腎臓萎縮が原因である事が判ったであろう。ところがそればかりではない。肋膜炎も、腹膜炎も関節リュウマチも神経痛も婦人病ももちろんそうであり、カリエスも、肝臓病も、黄疸も、糖尿病も、胆嚢、腎臓、膀胱内の結石も、喘息も、中風も、小児麻痺も、精神病もそうである。としたら実に腎臓萎縮を起さないようにする事こそ、健康の第一条件である。以上の病気は順次説く事にするからそれを読めばなおよく判るであろう。

この理によって、腎臓を完全に働かせる事が肝腎で、それには腎臓萎縮の原因である固結を、溶解除去すると共に、作らないようにする事である。ところが現在のいかなる療法によっても不可能であるが、独り本教浄霊によれば可能であるから、この一事によっても病なき世界は期待して誤りないのである。

 


Kidney Disease and Other Diseases

Creation of Civilization, written by Mokichi Okada in 1952

 

I have roughly described the three most important human functions. From now on, I will explain the main diseases.

 

Kidney takes the second most important role to the three major human functions; heart, lung and stomach. As medical science also explains, a kidney once collects liquid and extracts variable hormones out of it. The remained waste liquid is sent to a bladder as urine. That would be true if the kidney perfectly worked. The truth is kidney function usually deteriorates more and more as a person gets older; from his childhood to the boy, youth and middle age. It is because the kidney shrinks. This is a troublesome problem but why does it do so?

 

It is because foreign substance might be mixed with the liquid which should be divided into only hormones and urine in the kidney as I described above. This substance is, needless to say, toxic medicine. Then how is it processed? Since it is not processed into hormones nor urine, it percolates through the surface of the kidney, leaches and accumulates on its backside little by little. Then it solidifies and presses the kidney. Consequently, the kidney gradually shrinks and produces fewer hormones (which might cause the frigidity). Along with this defect, processing of urine gets slow down and a part of urine percolates out of the kidney. Then the percolated urine becomes toxic which is added to and mixed with toxic medicine, so that solidified toxins becomes bigger and bigger, accumulates in both sides of the spine, goes up, extends and finally reaches to around shoulders and a neck.

 

Shoulder and neck stiffness is caused by both of these toxic substances. Interestingly, we can recognise which of toxins cause stiffness. When pushing the affected part, if it hurts and is firm and stubborn, it is caused by toxic medicine. If it is softer and doesn’t hurt very much, it is caused by a uremic toxin. Then these toxic substances finally enter into the head. As a result, purification action occurs, which means all kinds of brain diseases such as meningitis, Japanese encephalitis, cerebrospinal meningitis, cerebral haemorrhage and so on. Of course, the heaviness of the head and headache are included. When you just touch your head, you can easily find whether having toxic substances or not in the head. If you feel something warm there, you have toxic substances. The warmer you feel, the more you have toxic substance in the head. I think there is probably no modern people who don’t have toxic substances in the head.

 

Let me explain some brain diseases as I mentioned above. Meningitis is the rapid and intense purification caused by solidified toxins in the forehead. Children easily suffer from this disease as they have vigorous purification potential. Then I describe the characteristics of this disease. When a person suffers from meningitis, he has high fever, severe pain in the forehead and cannot open his eyes because he feels dazzling and dizzy. While he leaves as he is, solidified toxins will be dissolved, excreted as tears and runny nose. Then meningitis is completely cured. Furthermore, his brain works more than before. For example, children become doing very well at school, which doctors and general people might not believe. On the contrary, medical treatment such as a cooling method or so solidifies toxic substances. Under this treatment, the fever once lowers and meningitis seems to be cured, but the solidified toxins disturb the activity of brain functions, which causes such defective symptoms as dementia and others.

 

We move on to another disease or Japanese encephalitis. Statistics say the largest number of children from 5 to about ten years old suffer from this disease. It is because, when they play outside without wearing caps under the scorching sun of the midsummer, their heads directly receive strong sunlight which stimulates toxins in the back, shoulders and so on. Then they start to concentrate on their brains. In this process, toxins once concentrate around the medulla oblongata. If you touch there, you will find a stick-shaped substance. When this substance is dissolved by high fever and moves into the back of their head, they feel asleep very much.

 

Under medical treatment, this substance is solidified by using the cooling method. As a result, they have an equally poor prognosis as meningitis. Therefore, what you have to do is just leave it as you do for meningitis. When you do so, the toxins in the hindbrain naturally go through the brain and frequently discharge from eyes and nostrils as bloody pus. When all of them discharge, Japanese encephalitis is completely cured. It takes a week at most. Besides, children and so forth become doing very well at school after they are cured of this disease just like meningitis. Japanese encephalitis is no harmful to life after all. Nevertheless, a patient dies due to wrong treatments such as the cooling method, which are just opposite to our way.

 

As I described, Japanese encephalitis is caused during the summer. Cerebrospinal meningitis is contrarily caused in winter. It causes stick-like toxins to solidify around the medulla oblongata as Japanese encephalitis does, but toxins stay there without reaching to the brain as the sunshine is not enough to expose the head in winter, unlike summer. Because of these stick-like toxins, just like a log, the neck cannot move back and forth. That is a characteristic symptom of this. Since the same process is followed as Japanese encephalitis does, I omit to describe it.

 

Then I explain various symptoms in detail other than ones of brain diseases. As I previously explained, nephrosclerosis causes toxins to move towards the head and some of them stay and harden around the medulla oblongata. They oppress blood vessels, disturb to send blood to eyeballs, which causes anaemia. In a word, eyes have poor nutrition so that person’s eyesight becomes poor and he cannot see far. That is the cause of short-sighted. The following fact proves this well; as that hardened toxins are dissolved, the short-sighted is completely cured.

 

Astigmatism is also caused in a similar process but the differences are how purification effects on the person. As for astigmatism, hardened toxins always move, irregularly oppress blood vessels, which causes a person’s eyesight to fluctuate. When toxins accumulate and harden in the eyeground, they block the optic nerves which causes a person to lose his sight. This is an internal hindrance. Cataract and glaucoma are caused when toxins harden in the eyeball itself. They are also dissolved naturally and then completely cured when you leave them as they are. Nevertheless, under the medical treatment, eye drops, an eyeball injection or so are undergone. Therefore, the toxins are solidified by those toxic medicines and as a result, even curable eye disease is not cured.

 

The toxins concentrating in the brain try to excrete from eyeballs in search of an exit. In this process, toxins once concentrate in eyeballs, dissolve again and come out as pus, eye mucus, tears or so. In this way, all eye diseases must be cured when you leave them, even if it might take time. As for trachoma, the toxins in the brain try to excrete through the mucous membrane behind the eyelid. In this process, toxins become rush and discharge as pus. Therefore, it will be naturally and easily cured when you leave it.

 

Let us move on to nose diseases. As for nasal polyps, hypertrophic rhinitis, nasal catarrh and so on, they are caused when toxins in the brain once concentrate in both sides of the nose, the back of the nose, nostrils and so on and then excrete. All of them should be naturally cured. On the contrary, various treatments are given in medical science which causes those diseases to become incurable. Then I describe middle ear infection. It is caused when solidified toxins near the parotid gland and lymph gland are dissolved by high fever, make a hole in the bone, enter the middle ear once and come out by breaking through the eardrum. In this process, a patient has pain but he will be steadily cured when leaving them for a few days.

 

The next disease is tonsillitis. It is caused when toxins near lymph gland solidify in tonsils day by day, which are dissolved by high fever and excreted by breaking through the mucous membrane. This is a very simple purification action and fine. In medical science, however, liniments such as Lugol’s iodine solution are used. They obstruct the purification and the disease grows worse. Worse still, tonsils finally become swollen very much and a patient is forced to undergo an operation. When you suffer from tonsillitis, therefore, please try to leave it without doing anything. If you do so, you will be steadily cured in a short period. Furthermore, every time you suffer from tonsillitis, the symptom becomes milder than before and you will be completely cured at last. I am so convinced by my experience to cure chronic tonsillitis many times without exceptions. The same result is also given by my apprentices who are taught how to cure it.

 

Here I give you an interesting topic. It is about pyorrhea, which might not be common but is relatively troublesome. It is a kind of purification, too. In this process, toxins near lymph gland concentrate into the gum and try to discharge from there as bloody pus. I think there is nothing dirtier than this. It is because toxins are originally made by old urine and they come out from the mouth. It is easy to cure this disease. Only you have to do is rub the gum with a hard toothbrush. When all of the bloody pus comes out, pyorrhea will be cured. That is all.

 

Please remember what I described in the chapter of “Cold”. I explained that a cold is caused by toxins solidified in the parts of the body above shoulders. Then it is clear that those toxins originally come from kidneys as I described above. If that is the case, you would comprehend that a cold, tuberculosis, pneumonia and most of the other diseases are caused by nephrosclerosis. Besides, pleurisy, peritonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuralgia and women’s diseases are, of course, caused by this defect. Caries, liver disease, jaundice, diabetes, calculus in the gall bladder, kidney and urinary bladder, asthma, paralysis, infantile paralysis and mental disorder are all the same. Therefore, the first condition of health is truly not to cause kidneys to shrink. I will take turns in explaining these diseases in detail and you will understand when you read what I describe.

 

For this reason, it is essential to have kidneys work perfectly. To do so, the solidified toxins, which causes kidneys to shrink, must be dissolved and discharged. Along with this, we must not create toxins. That is impossible if using any kind of medical treatment. The only way is to apply our Johrei, by which the world without disease would be realised.
