Johrei Cures Chronic Otitis, Hypertrophy of the Tonsils and Empyema

M.N., Tokyo Japan

In July 1950, when I was fifth grade, I was diagnosed as having chronic otitis, hypertrophy of the tonsils and empyema. My mother was shocked at my medical report. It was like a bad dream for her because I had already been going to see a doctor and taken medical treatment for a long time. After considering the optimal way, she decided to try Johrei to cure my diseases. About three weeks after I started to receive the healing everyday, I began to get visibly better so that I was allowed to go swimming. And by the end of the summer vacation, my ears were clear with no discharge and my tonsils were no longer swollen. At the medical check-up in September, I was diagnosed as having nothing wrong. We were overjoyed at the results that I no longer needed surgery.

Like a Bad Dream

The summer of 1950, when I was in fifth grade, I was diagnosed by the school doctor as having chronic otitis, hypertrophy of the tonsils, and empyema. My mother was told I had to be treated and cured, with surgery, before the end of summer vacation. She was shocked at my medical report. It was like a bad dream---several difficult diseases all at once, and then the ultimatum from the school: "Cure her now, before school starts againc" She couldn't fully accept the verdict that I needed another medical treatment, after years of treatments under various specialists in medical field.

My mother's Old Friend

As she struggled with the bad news and tried to envision what alternatives we had, she thought of her old friend Shima Yamamoto and her recent talk of "medical toxins," "purification," "divine light," "miracles." Whenever She saw my mother, she went on and on about such things, but my mother had never done more than listen politely and put the religious tracts she loaned her away on a drawer, unread. My problems made her think again. "Maybe there's something to it," she thought, and contacted Yamamoto-san. My mother asked if she would take us to the Johrei center.

I Received Johrei for the First Time

We entered the building of the Johrei Center and found ourselves in a huge but solemnly quiet hall at the second floor, at the far end of which was an altar. Right there in front of the altar, I received Johrei for the first time, from a minister. He extended his hand to about a foot away from me, not even touching, but I said to my mother that I could feel something like heat penetrating my body. Afterward my mother asked the minister more about the healing method, the causes of diseases in general, and my ailments. He said that a lot of impure matter---"toxins"--- had accumulated and hardened in several places, bringing on my symptoms. My condition was serious, he admitted, but he assured her that I would get well in time if the toxins were excreted from my body. On listening to him, my mother was wondering if she should take the man seriously. He seemed very sincere and confident, and what he talked to her was somehow understandable.

Favorable Changes

From that day on I went to the center every single day by myself to receive Jorei. I'd felt heavy and my movement had been very slow until about a week later when my tonsil became less swollen. Then I began to get visibly better in three weeks. My mother even allowed me to go swimming in early August. My elder sister with whom I shared a room, mentioned to my mother that my whole attitude changed after I began receiving Johrei. I grew less dependent, getting dressed, making my bed, and doing everything myself like any child my age.

Overjoyed at the Results

By the end of the summer vacation, my ears were clear with no discharge and my tonsils were no longer swollen. At my medical check-up at the beginning of the fall semester, I was diagnosed as having nasal inflammation and nothing else. How overjoyed my mother and I were when we heard the word of school doctor that I no longer needed surgery.
