Sunplaza Nakano-kun (1/3)

I'm getting healthier year after year. I'm certain that every method I'm doing now is good.

Sun-plaza Nakano-kun debuted in 1984 as the singer of rock band "Bakufu Slump" in Japan. With their several hit songs such as "Runner" and "Okina Tamanegi-no Shita-de ~Haruka-naru Omoi~", he became a dominant singer in his time. He is actively performing as a solo artist now.

As a matter of fact, he is known as a health expert among the world of entertainment for writing many books and giving speeches around the country on the subject. For his vast activity and insight on health, he even earned the nickname "health and happiness hermit of the rockers".

This time, Naoko Mitsuda who respects Sun-plaza Nakano-kun as her master, interviewed him on the subject of the health. Apparently he was once unhealthy for his extreme diet, then he told us about how he became health conscious, his current health methods, and what he is aiming for, etc.

Debuted in 1984 as a singer of the rock band "Bakufu Slump".
The band released many hit songs such as "Runner" ('88), "Resort Lovers" ('89), "Okina Tamanegi-no Shita-de ~Haruka-naru Omoi~" ('89), Tabibito-yo ~The Longest Journey~" ('96).

The band stopped its activity in April 1999. After that, he started to write books and give speeches using his diverse knowledge on health and stock marketing.
His books on health are;

"Yasekata Jozu - Easy Health and Happiness Maunal by Sun-plaza Nakano" (Sun-plaza Nakano, Kodan-sha, '03)
"Heiwa-na Karada" (Sun-plaza Homeopath Nakano, Yubikita Studio, '07)
"Tabe-kata Mondo - Recommendation of Eating Less - Asked my mentor for the the essence of the health!" (Mitsuo Koda and Sun-plaza Nakano, Makino publishing '08) etc.

Also, he has written scripts, produced, voice acted and wrote and sang the theme song to animation "Honmaguro Torotaro" which has been shown since July '07 as a part of a TV program called "Fightention School" (TX group).

Web site of Sun-plaza Nakano-kun:


Temple Beautiful: You are now famous as the most health conscious person in the world of Japanese Rock, but is it true that you had a completely different life-style before?

Sun-plaza Nakano-kun: Yes, I did. Especially my diet, which was extremely unbalanced. That was the time when the song "Runner" was in the charts, I used to eat Korean BBQ and sweets as much as I wanted every evening. And for some reason, I was into muscle building so I was taking large amounts of protein. I used to drink a lot, too.

TB:When you gave us a speech at our 15th anniversary event, you said that you were eating Oshiruko (Japanese sweet azuki bean soup) every night before going to bed.

SN: That's right. I was drinking, and I loved eating sweets.

TB:It's hard to imagine from what you are now.

SN: Yes (laugh). Gradually my condition became worse, and when I started to think "There's something wrong with me", it was scary. I found out that my father had a cancer. He passed after about a year of fighting the disease. As I observed the process, I started to think that the disease will not always be cured by just going to hospitals, and sometimes it can't be cured. That's how I made a firm resolution to study about health. When I look back, I feel like my father showed me an example of someone who had a bad physical condition. It was when I was about 35 years old.

TB: I see… It must have been very hard. But because of your father's disease and death you became the way you are. It can be said that your father's will lives on in you since we are learning about health from your attitude on it.
By the way, what was your physical condition like in those days?

SN: Dizziness, hot flushes, palpitations, mood swings, etc… I was troubled by symptoms similar to what women experience at menopause. At the time, I had an opportunity to talk about my condition to a medical doctor so I asked for their opinion. I was told that it could be a male menopausal disorder. I thought it could be so but as I researched, I found out that men don't have menopausal disorders. So I reached a conclusion that my condition was not a menopausal disorder. So what did I have? Actually, I found out that it was 'hypoglycemia'.

TB: You mean the hypoglycemia which people get from eating too much sweets?

SN: Well, if it's explained simply, that's how we get it. The human body has a mechanism of always keeping the right balance. After we eat food, our pancreas secretes insulin to lower the blood sugar level. But when the pancreas is too tired to do this, our blood sugar level can't be controlled. And this causes the blood sugar level to go up and down abruptly. Repeating this causes hormones such as adrenaline and noradrenaline to be secreted which starts to affect the body and mind. This is called hypoglycemia. And its symptoms are just like menopausal disorder's.

As you said, this is caused by eating too much food that raises the blood sugar level suddenly, such as refined grains or sugar, including white sugar. It is a sickness of 'sweets'. I suppose many people have this in our modern society.

Mariya Clinic in Inage, Chiba is famous for accepting outpatients specifically in hypoglycemia in the Kanto area, and their website has a detailed explanation about the disease, so you can look at it. By the way, I have interviewed the director of this clinic. The doctor said that "The people who have schizophrenia and come here for a hypoglycemia test, almost always have a positive result. But it can't be said the other way around (Hypoglycemia patients have schizophrenia)."

Incidentally, many people mix up the words "Tei Ketto Sho (hypoglycemia)" and "Tei Ketto (low blood sugar)", but "Tei Ketto Sho (hypoglycemia)" is the name of the disease and "Tei Ketto (low blood sugar)" means the condition of the blood sugar level is low. As I mentioned earlier, the problem of having hypoglycemia is not for the blood sugar level to go lower, the problem is when it becomes impossible to control the blood sugar level.

TB: It feels like talking to a doctor at a hospital (laugh). I used to eat sweets ordinarily, since my childhood hobby was 'making sweets'. But I've been having a sugar-free life style for almost 20 years. Because I haven't eaten sugar for a long time, when I eat something containing a lot of sugar, I immediately have a headache, fever, and a runny nose. So I can't eat sugar any more. But sometimes, I receive some sweets with a reputation. Then I eat with determination despite catching a cold. In fact, I caught a cold many times because of sweets… It's a 'sweets cold' (laugh).

I was just thinking that I am at the age of menopause. But I don't have any symptoms like what you had. Maybe I'm benefitting from my diet of low sugar… My 40-some-year-old friend who loves sweets is suffering from symptoms like menopausal disorder. Perhaps she has 'hypoglycemia'.

Sunplaza Nakano-kun (2/3)


SN: Especially among ladies, there are many people who eat sweets as a daily habit as if it's a virtue. People who have a bad condition chronically can suspect that they have hypoglycemia. Of course the influence of the sweets may or may not be obvious depending on the individual. But when one drinks too much, eventually the liver gets damaged. I think the same thing can be said about eating sweets.

TB: It's an ear-aching story for women. So, as you said that you made a firm resolution to study about health, how did you start specifically?

SN: At first I started to learn about 'taking' the nutrition I was lacking after reading "Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible". I read it literally as a bible, and memorized the whole book. After a while, I became aware of "Nishi Shiki Koda Ryoho" by Dr. Mitsuo Koda.

Then my view on health shifted from 'taking' nutrition to 'not taking' nutrition which is the method of the Nishi Health System. I presently practice this method.

TB: "Nishi Shiki Koda Ryoho" is the method known for fasting and eating small amounts. I'm really into trying diets, but as soon as I read the book about Nishi Shiki Koda Ryoho, I immediately thought "I can't do this!" and gave up on trying. I think Nishi Shiki Koda Ryoho is a very challenging diet for ordinary people. What made you think to try it?

SN: At the time, I was reading several books on health including Yuriko Tojo. Among all the books I read, I was most inspired by Dr. Koda's "Shoshoku-ga Kenko-no Genten (The Starting Point of Health is The Light Eating)". Until then, I had this fixed idea that the cause of a disease is the lack of nutritions. But in his book, he argues that overeating causes problems. The scales had fallen from my eyes and I was convinced by almost everything he said in the book, so I decided to try it.

TB: With the diet of Nishi Shiki Koda Ryoho, especially the old method, you eat a thick green juice made with only leafy green vegetables using a pestle and mortar. Just imagining it makes me lose my appetite. Wasn't it hard for you to change your diet from Korean BBQs to thick green juice with brown rice and vegetables, and even fasting and light eating?

SN: No, it wasn't so hard. In fact, I was already a vegetarian since I was 33 years old. I became vegetarian because I started to get diarrhea when I ate meat. I guess I ate enough for one life-time's worth (laugh). Regarding fasting, I started from 'half-day fasting' with which you just skip breakfasts.

TB: I see. By the way, I heard that you had a period of time when you were only eating brown rice flour!

SN: Yes. Now I'm mainly eating Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai, so I don't eat rice flour any more. But certainly I used to make rice flour with a German millstone which I purchased from Catalog House, and I was eating that home made flour.

The oxidization of brown rice begins as soon as it gets milled, so I thought fresher flour is better. I ate brown rice flour according to the Nishi Shiki diet. In those days, I was having no breakfast, only brown rice flour for lunch, and brown rice and vegetables at night.

TB: Wow! How stoic could you be? It sounds like a monk on austerities (laugh).

SN: You're right. People around me said that I wouldn't have the pleasure of eating. But then, I was having the pleasure of feeling like "How cool am I to keep on doing this? I'm amazing!" (laugh). It's a little weird (laugh).

TB: Are you still drinking the thick green juice?

SN: I'm drinking green juice made with a juicer, not pestle and mortar. Of course I'm using the slow speed juicer (laugh). I've been sleeping on the wood board bed with wooden pillow, and having the hot and cold baths as recommended by Nishi Shiki.

TB: I followed your example and started to sleep on a wood board bed. But I can't use the wooden pillow, because it hurts (laugh). And the hot and cold baths are so challenging since the dipping in hot bath and cold bath has to be repeated seven times, and it is too cold in winter.

SN: Everyone says that. But it is worth the effort. In my case, after doing the hot and cold baths for 3 months, I recovered from poor blood circulation. After eating the Nishi Shiki diet for 4 months, I lost 20 kilograms and my condition became much better. If you bare using the the wooden pillow for a month, you'll get used to it and start to feel good (laugh).

TB: I see. If my master says so, I should try again… (laugh). By the way, you just mentioned Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai(Fermented brown rice. Koso=Enzyme, Genmai=Brown rice). This is also a famous method among health conscious people. How did you start it?

SN: Some time ago, I went to hear Minori Okamoto*'s speech. She was over 90 years old but she was so vigorous. I was shocked by her appearance and every audience felt the same way. So at the Q&A time at the end, we all asked her "How are you looking so well!?" (laugh). And her secret of health was the Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai. She told us that she was so weak that she couldn't walk by herself. But she found out about such brown rice in her 80s and now she's in her 90s and becoming healthier.

Her words and appearance persuaded me to think "I must try this", since I knew its reputation. I went to "Taiyo-no Kai" and attended a lecture on how to make Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai. Then I purchased the special cooking utensil and started to eat it. I've been doing this for five to six years now. It's tasty, and it's satisfying mentally.

TB: I see. I've attended the lecture once. It is tasty and its texture is like the sticky rice, and I was told how it improves the condition by some people who were eating it for a long time. So I wanted to try as well, but I was hesitating because the color and the largeness of the thermal jar was far from good looking. Then I missed the timing. Also I thought that I'm too hasty to follow such a procedure of cooking which is like a ritual.

SN: However, if you cook once, you don't have to do it for another 10 days or so. This could be helping rather than being a hustle for housewives (laugh). About Nishi Shiki diet, the number of meals become twice or one and a half. This would help financially, and save time for thinking what to cook. It's the most appropriate diet for busy housewives (laugh). Moreover, it's good for your health. It is a wonder to me why nobody's doing it.

TB: Well, that makes sense (laugh). Perhaps it's worth keeping that enormous jar, even in a small kitchen.

SN: I'd like to add an explanation about Koso Genmai(Fermented brown rice). It's said that you can eat as much as you want, so you can get satisfaction. Even when you eat a lot, it has Koso (enzymes) to help digestion so it will not be a burden on the digestive system. Therefore, it's said that it is ok to be eaten by old people with no teeth, or small children. Actually, there are different Koso Genmai to Nagaoka-shiki and they are becoming popular.

TB: You mean the one made with a certain rice cooker. I am doing Caye's diet so I don't eat rice mainly. But we have a rice cooker called "Amaterasu" which makes Koso Genmai, so I sometimes eat that with some staffs. Though it only cooks four cups of rice, so we eat up before it ferments (laugh).

*"Amaterasu" is currently not sold, but similar products are available. They can be found on the internet.

SN: I heard that with "Amaterasu", you have a setting for sprouted rice. Nagaoka-shiki doesn't sprout rice. They make the same Koso Genmai but their methods are different whether sprouting rice or not. Some people say sprouting rice increases GABA, so it's better for health. The others say it's not good to sprout because sprouting reduces the energy of grains. I'm still researching this subject.

TB: It's like a march between me who's an easy "rice-cooker" user and you who's a proper "Nagaoka-shiki" user (laugh). After eating for five to six years, how do you feel physically?

SN: I feel really good. I'm getting healthier year after year and not only from eating "Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai". I'm certain that every method I'm doing now is good.

*Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai: Cook brown rice with some azuki (red bean) and salt with a Nagaoka-shiki pressure cooker, then place the cooked rice in the 3.6 liter thermal jar to ferment it. They say it's better to eat the rice which was stored for longer than 3 days than the freshly cooked rice. Eating this fermented rice supplies the lacking enzymes to our body and it is supposed to improve our physical condition.

Unlike normal brown rice, it is highly digestible so you don't have to worry about chewing so much. Yet you can intake the good nutrition of brown rice, so it is a very popular method among health conscious people. In order to cook this "Nagaoka-shiki Koso Genmai" properly, it is necessary to attend lectures by its organization "Taiyo-no Kai" (lectures are for free of charge). http://www.n-kousogenmai.co.jp/

*Minori Okamoto: The wife of Tenmei Okamoto who psychically received "Hitsuki Shinji" (spiritual messages).

TB: Yes, I can see that (laugh). By the way, you have studied homeopathy thoroughly and received a diploma.

SN: Yes, I studied with Greek homeopath Mr. George Vithoulkas* who is one of the best two homeopaths in classical homeopathy at the present age. But I didn't study directly with him in Greece, I studied with his close German apprentice who was visiting Japan. I studied with him for four years and passed the test for an approval by Mr. George Vothoulkas.

*George Vithoulkas: He is one of the most well known homeopaths. He lives in Alonisos, Greece. He runs the International Academy of Classical Homeophathy. More than a hundred homeopaths from over ten countries attend his lecture which is held annually in June. (Reference from Japan Homeopathy Foundation website, http://nihon-homeopathy.net/index.html )

TB: For four years! That must have been so hard to manage, making time between your busy schedule. How come you wanted to study homeopathy so much?

Sunplaza Nakano-kun (3/3)


SN: When my physical condition was not so good, one of my music related friends told me about homeopathy. He was like an early adopter of the spiritual movement.

He also gave me Shirley MacLaine's book "Out on a Limb", soon after it was published in Japan. I had his recommendation so I went to the Japanese Homeopathy Medical Association which is organized by Ms.Torako Yui to try the remedies.

Then I was prescribed some remedies, and one of them seemed to miraculously work on me. Have you ever seen the opening to the TV program "Ultra Q"? It was not as extreme as that, but soon after I licked the remedy I felt like my field of vision turned a half way or one way around. I thought to myself "Oh, I'm healed." I had this dramatic experience and just as I became more interested in homeopathy, another friend told me that they're helping this homeopathy school and asked me if I wanted to study there. So I decided go along.

TB: I see. Well, you accepted the invitation casually, but wasn't the study hard?

SN: Yes, it was. First of all, I couldn't remember the name of the remedies (laugh). And then I had many occasions when I couldn't comprehend, even when the tutors gave us as much explanations as they could. I became so upset that I shouted "I really can't understand!" (laugh). But overall, it was fun.

TB: Do you still use the remedies to adjust your condition? And do you give advice or recommendations for certain remedies to the people around you?

SN: Of course, I'm using it for myself. My household medicines are the remedies, not the antibiotics. And about giving advice… I would give to a very limited amount of people. I do have a diploma, but it only means that I was approved by Mr. Vothoulkas, not by the Japanese Ministry of Welfare nor the medical world. Someone ike myself, who is not a medical doctor should never prescribe anything to others carelessly.

TB: I see, certainly you're right. Well, we've been asking you about various health methods, but we must ask you about Edgar Cayce (laugh). Apparently you are using the distilled water maker "Didimi"(Distilled water purifier) and the Castor oil pack. Firstly, can you tell us how you found out about Cayce?

SN: I found out about Cayce as the greatest prophet of the 20th century, not as a psychic who gave health readings, since I was interested in the spiritual world. This might change the subject, but there used to be a TV program called "Time Traveler" on NHK's Boys' Drama Series.

TB: I know, it's with Ken Sogol (the character's name), right? That's nostalgic! It's a drama based on Yasutaka Tsutsui's novel "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". I have a DVD which contains the last episode of the series (laugh).

SN: Wow! I'd like to see it! I haven't seen it since I saw it at my relative's house when I was in primary school (laugh). When I look back, that drama opened the door to my spiritual interest. That's how I became interested in Cayce, and gradually I became interested in health methods. I learned a lot of information from your website, rather than reading books about him.

TB: We're honored! Yes, the Didimi water distiller was your purchase with us, by mail order.

SN: Yes, that's right. One of my friends was praising the Didimi so much. He said that the energy of distilled water is very high. So he purchased five of them to fill the bath with distilled water. He was proudly telling me that he was feeling its energy on his entire body (laugh). He may sound strange, but he's an excellent person and graduated Tokyo University. Also his senses are very sharp, so I decided to give a try (laugh).

TB: That's an interesting detail. Five of them… I'd like to try bathing, but getting five Didimies is too challenging. And, you're also using the Castor oil pack, aren't you?

SN: I couldn't start using the Castor oil pack, because of the stickiness of the oil. But last year, I felt like trying so I started doing it. Sure enough, it feels good. I was healthy before I started, so I can't tell if anything has changed. But because of the sensation, I felt like using it more and more. So I'm using it once a week, continuously. In my case, I use it as soon as I wake up in the morning.

TB: I heard that you're doing colonics too.

SN: Yes, I am. I tried it for the first time about 15 years ago. I was using an enema pump which I found on the internet, but it broke early on. I couldn't be bothered to buy it again, then I thought "Maybe I could use the shower hose.", so I tried it. I unscrewed the shower head and laid on the bathroom floor. I pushed the hose to my anus and it worked. Since then, I was doing in that way.

TB: Really!? With a shower hose… Could it really be possible?

SN: Of course, it is. When you use a 'Washlet' (a Japanese toilet with water sprey), some water goes up in your anus. This is like its expanded version (laugh).

TB: That's so bold. But inserting tap water to the intestine, I don't want any good kids to imitate (laugh). But you're a using Colon Kit (enema bag) now, aren't you? How is it?

SN: The difficulty of using the shower hose was that I couldn't tell how much water I was inserting. But with an enema bag, I can measure the correct amount so it's safer. This gives me a clean sensation, a different feel-good to the Castor oil pack. I knew about the coffee enema, but I never imagined I would be doing it. It was my first time to drink coffee from my bottom (laugh).

TB: (Laugh out loud) The solution for enemas which Cayce recommended is with salt and bicarbonate of soda. This way is a little deep. But among all the enema solutions, coffee is the easiest. People who are allergic to caffeine use herbal tea, camomile tea is commonly used. Although using coffee is better because its caffeine which is absorbed from the intestinal mucosa, stimulates the liver and the gall bladder to increase their ability of detoxification.

SN: Oh, really? That's interesting. It reaches the liver. Speaking of the liver, I have done a "Liver Flush" (liver cleansing) as well. It's a method of drinking some Epsom salts, olive oil and grapefruit juice for some days. It's true that some green pellets come out with our stool.

TB: You've done Liver Flush as well?! I've done it once some years ago. Surely we'd never normally see the green pellets in our daily stool come out. It is said that they are gallstones, but I couldn't believe I had them in me. I was shocked. It is very mysterious for gallstones to come out from the liver or the bile duct by such an easy method.

SN: It's like "Who the hell has found this method!?" (laugh) It is very mysterious. Well, I'm thinking of continuing it once every year.

TB: You're such an expert of health methods, and you're aiming to live till 125 years old.

SN: Yes, I am. Marquess Shigenobu Okuma who was the founder of Waseda University (his old school) clearly said that "Human lifespan is to 125 years old", so I'd like to live till 125. Recently, there are some scientists who have theories of the human lifespan to be to 130 years old. By the way, Waseda University values this number "125". For instance, they made the hight of the clock tower of Okuma Kodo (hall) to be 125 shaku (old Japanese unit, equivalent of 37.9 meters), and they cerebrate the 125th anniversary grander than the 100th anniversary.

TB: If you keep on like this, you might live till 125 years old (laugh). Well, lastly, we'd like to ask you about your activity as a musician which is your main career. You have been performing around the disaster-stricken area since March 11, 2011. What made you to do such activities?

SN: When I watched what happened in those area on TV right after the earthquake and tsunami, I thought that "This is terrible, I want to do something." Actually, I thought the same way when the Hanshin Earthquake struck (1995), but I was not physically well so I couldn't go to the damaged area. I've been regretting that ever since. So I really had to go this time. Also, the generation of Bakufu-Slump fans are around their 30s to 40s, and these people will be leading the restoration of the area. And I thought people wouldn't mind hearing our songs which are lively.

For example, "Runner" can sound strong if I sang it with one guitar on my back. It's been played at sports festivals of schools, so children know it too. I felt that "I have this great song, so if I didn't go, who could?" Then I made some connections with people to be invited to the area. I am a completely different person from who I was 17 years ago when the Hanshin Earthquake struck. But sometimes I think to myself that I became healthier for this purpose of encouraging those people.

TB: What do you feel after actually going to those places?

SN: Well, this time I was in a good condition physically and mentally, so it helped me to stay calm even when I saw things which were as bad as I expected. So I feel that I could reach the victims through singing because I was relaxed. Even though, when I sang at the stage of some school gyms which were actually shelters, I may have forced some people who didn't want to, to hear my songs. I really don't know how my music was received, but I hope that they enjoyed it.

The most impressive thing was that I could feel the spirited energy which was like "It will be hard, but we're going to rebuild from zero." among people in Iwate. I was glad to feel that. I will keep on doing this activity.

TB: What message do you want to spread through your songs?

SN: It has to be the energy of well-being and healing. I produced the album which was released in last March called "Utau (singing) Power Spots ~in Sedona and Hawaii~", with such intention. On one of the songs of the album called "Shiawase ~for TERRA~", we used the "field recording" technique on the beach of Maui to capture the natural sound.

I really want people to listen to this song. My recording staff was amazed and he said, "This is unbelievable that the sounds of the waves were captured at perfect timings!" It ended up sounding as if the nature supported us. In fact, the day before of the recording, I went to pray at the Haleakala mountain where the God of Maui is believed to live. I said in my prayer, "I'm going to sing tomorrow, so please support us." So we believe that the God of Haleakala really supported us (laugh).

TB: You recorded all the songs at power-spots (vortex points) like Maui and Sedona. Also you have written a guide book called "Seichi Sedona-no Arukikata" (How to walk through Sedona, the sacred place).

SN: Yes. In that book I introduced the vortex (a location thought to be emitting energy) of Sedona, shops, restaurants, and spiritual people. A native american shaman, Yukuara whom I interviewed for the book also sang a song on the album "Utau Power Spots ~in Sedona and Hawaii~". He says he wants to go on a pilgrimage to Fukushima this year, so I'm thinking of going with him.

TB: That will be wonderful. We're praying for you to make it. We thank you for telling us your valuable stories.

Carbon steal

I bought this carbon steel for myself, but my father has some throat problem, he usually has a lot of phlegm in his mouth. He tried the carbon steel and noticed a reduction in his phlegm production. He used the carbon steel as a necklace, wearing it around his throat.

And when he felt some pain in his leg muscle, he placed the carbon steel directly on the painful part of his leg. He said that soon the pain was gone.

Also, my mother tried using it in a similar way. She used to have stiff neck and shoulders, but after starting to use the carbon steel, she said the stiffness was gone.
We were all amazed by this. Edgar Cayce said we should use carbon steel to protect us from colds, but it is also good for pain relief. So amazing!
Thank you very much for such a good product.

Carbon Steal

I used to suffer from headaches, especially after spending time in crowded places. After giving massages to other, I often take on their symptoms. If they have a headache, I got one after massaging them.

So I started to use carbon steel, and after I did, I no longer suffered from headaches after being in crowded places. And if I touched or massaged someone, I didn’t suffer from the symptoms they had.
Sometimes I also feel a heaviness when I meet some people, but I no longer feel this heaviness since using carbon steel.

Also, I feel like I have better immunity towards colds, and I don’t catch them often. If I do catch a cold, it is gone very quickly.

Carbon steel is such a tiny thing, but it is very powerful!

Ryusei Saegusa (Interview Part 3)

Interview Part 1
Interview Part 2

M: You must be farsighted to have a sense of the crisis of earth's future and to have studied the earth's environment and gene manipulation over 40 years ago. On the other hand, you were experiencing wearing napkins and diapers. You were not an ordinary high school student.

I'd like to move on to another subject. In the previous book you introduced a story of the person who became less fortunate when they stopped going to the usual barber and went to more expensive barber. I couldn't understand why they became misfortunate for changing from cheap barber to expensive barber. Can you explain why?

S: It means that the high priced or high quality barbers will not raise your luck. What matters is the chemistry. If the chemistry is right, even a cheap barber can give you luck. Same thing can be said about marriage. It is better to marry someone with chemistry than having a lot of money when you consider you have to spend time alone in later years… The influence of relationships is like multiplication and it's not addition nor subtraction. If you make one mistake, it becomes more and more complicated.

Whether it's a hair salon or a barber, where you "cut your hair" is very important. When the hair-stylists move to a new salon, women often follow them. If they move to Nagoya, they'd even go there from Tokyo… Having our hair touched means a lot to us.

M: Actually, I think I heard that a psychic person had their long hair shortened and their power became less.

S: When you have short hair, you make decisions quicker. That's why soldiers have their hair short. On the battle field, there's no time to consider "whether to shoot or not". On the other hand, at the English court, they wear long haired wigs. It's representative of their careful consideration.

Our hair has a purpose like the antenna. However, tips of hair store negative energy so I recommend women to trim frequently.

M: Are there any other place where the chemistry is important?

S: Places where your body is being touched. Seitai is included. But the influence of hair remains longer because it's visible. The word "hair (kami in Japanese)" is the same as "God (kami in Japanese)" for a reason.

M: What about Sun-plaza Nakano-kun (musician) who shaves his head?

S: He shaves his head but wears sunglasses. He's pressuring himself by wearing sunglasses. The rock musicians including Eikichi Yazawa and Ryudo Uzaki, they're often extremely shy. Having such personalities, they have to force themselves to be in the public as rock musicians. So they all need a script of how to pressure themselves, cloths and hair styles or sunglasses as props.

M: Women also wear make-up to create faces for the public.
By the way, the concept of "External Meridian*" in your book was very interesting. Can you tell us how you discovered this concept?

*External Meridian: Saegusa Seitai recognizes that humans have individual energy networks outside of our physical bodies (i.e. clothing, diet, living environment, family and friends, pets, including time of past and future).

S: By writing my diary for 3 years. I started to write a diary when I was 28 years old and 3 years later I read the whole thing. I could see the law of patterns. Like certain things happen at a certain time of the year or after meeting certain people, certain things happened. I have been writing for 30 years so I have statistics to a certain extent.

Humans repeat similar things daily. We may not have done what we've been meaning to do for 10 years. We tend to do unimportant things but not the important things which nobody orders us to do. This becomes clear when you write a diary.

M: How does this relate to the External Meridian?

S: You can see certain patterns. Like when you wear these clothes, weird things happen. External Meridian influences our Internal Meridian. Which means we are connected to the external world. Humans and time and space.

M: For men, it's common to go to a bar after work, like going to Shinbashi with colleagues…

S: But if they didn't go to those places to dust off what they didn't enjoy during the day, everything will go wrong. They're acting at work, acting at home so they tend to be most neutral at bars. Some English person was writing that there aren't many psychoanalysts in Japan, but mistresses of the bars are taking their places. Izakaya bars are our precious culture. I don't think in other countries, mistresses wouldn't say "Enough drinking, you should go home" to a customer. We have less of such mistresses lately...

M: I'd like to ask about Aikido next.

S: Aikido is very interesting. You know, only humans can operate things from one-sided positions, like cars with handles on left or right. Animals can't operate things unless the handle is in the middle, like those miniature trains monkeys ride. It is remarkable to be able to drive from the car's center, instead of your center.

It's like this (demonstration: he asks to hold his arm and try to keep standing firmly).

When I try to move you from my center, you don't move.
But when I move from the "center" point between us like a dance, you can't resist.
(Here, he easily moves even though I am resisting)
When one moves like dancing with the opponent, it relaxes their guard like breaking their security codes.

M: Does this mean placing my consciousness in the middle?

S: It means you take part in the movement with the opponent. It's not that you try to move the opponent from your center. Next, you can try to move from the opponent's center instead of your center. Then it becomes even more easier to move the opponent. It's almost as choreographed, but it's natural and the opponent can't help it.

Aikido makes the opponent settled. When the opponent stops to judge, they settle. Humans settle when we can't understand. It is just like ourselves in Japan now, that we're settled because we can't understand. We're holding our judgements. It's easy to resist when the enemies move the same way as before, but when they move from our center and we don't feel hostility towards them, we don't know what to do and we do as they like.

Self-centered people can't do Aikido. Even if they say "This is for the opponent", they try to move from their center so the opponents don't move. I mentioned earlier about Seitai that "I cure them" nor "I cure myself". Aikido does not "push down" the opponent, it only leads the opponent to "fall by themselves".

M: Is there an age limit to start practicing Aikido?

S: Not at all. I'd like to invite people to practice even if it was 2 days before their death. Do you know what we mainly use our motor nerves for? It's for standing. Aikido begins with standing straight. Same as ballet.

When we talk about standing, Edgar Cayce has a beautiful posture. When I look at various pictures of him, the center line runs through him like heaven and earth. I suppose it's impossible to receive intuitions otherwise. It's inspiring to see his pictures. Mr. Cayce has the heaven and earth connection. In other words, people are "how they look". Exactly the same as we see them.

M: You can tell without seeing the entire body.

S: Yes, I can. I like to watch bicycle races and horse races. I used to go to bicycle racetracks without knowing the rules. When I get there, I just look at the backs of tipsters. If someone seems good, I'd buy betting tickets on his tips. After that, without looking at the races I'd leave to a cafe and read books. When all the races finish, I go back to cash the tickets.

M: How about stocks?

S: During the bubble economy, some people entrusted me with some money to invest in stocks, so I made it double and gave it back. Then I sold all the stocks in 1989. From the beginning of the following year, the economic bubble started to burst.

Mr. Noguchi had a period of making a living from investing in stocks. I assume everyone feels when is the right time. Humans have senses so we know whether to go to the right or to the left. But we use our head and think what to do. What we think in our heads is just data from the past. Forecasting of stocks works the same way as the External Meridian. Stocks are very interesting.

M: Next time please tell me the best stock I can be a rich person by your external Meridian.... By the way what do you think humans are?

S: I see the External Meridian between human relationships. "Humans (in Japanese kanji characters)" are spelled "in between peoples". It means also the relationships between people and nature. These relationships determine the life's turning point of its worst to its best. They're determined by whom you chose to relate to, and how you treat the relationships. The same things can be said about the connections. Some people take good care of connections which are hardly existing, and some people take apart without doing anything even when there were strong connections.

Our bodies are full of potentials. We can stand up, walk, crawl, we can even crawl inside out. There's no other animal that can do such things. We have so much potential that if we chose to mistakingly, we could create some awful results. In order to find the right choices, we should to listen to our bodies. And meditation is the way to listen to ourselves.

M: If you could recommend one tip to stay healthy, what would you recommend?

S: I can say that "Be careful of a chill". Get rid of chill from your body by wearing socks (toes separated) and having foot baths or sitz baths. One more thing is the relationships. The wrong human relationship can be a cancer-causing agent. It's a cancer-causing relationship.

M: Besides meditation, do you practice anything to raise your spirituality?

S: If I were to say it simply, I don't do anything I don't want to do. When I need to do something, I don't do it for an obligation. I make myself "want to do it", then do it. When I see efforts in my apprentices' work, I get angry at them. I can't bare the smell of efforts. I don't have the idea that when one works hard, they can be tolerated. Moreover, if the person was making an effort to be seen, they are sinners. In my company, we have the "prohibition against efforts". Mr. Shigeo Nagashima (ex. baseball player) made an effort where nobody saw. We humans should be light and fun.

M: Lastly, how do you wish to live from now on?

S: I've searched for "invisible things" such as energy until now. From now on, I think the invisible things will become more important than visible things. About the radiation issue, most of the people are "not moving until I hear the result because it's invisible".

For example, if you found out that you only had 2 months to live, you'd think "I'd like to see all the people I want to see while I can". We have to wonder which is better to see all the people in the last 2 months, or do nothing until your death. It's been over a year since the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. We gave ourselves some time to figure out. If I express myself in Cayce's way, I'd like to use this opportunity to raise my spirituality.

On March 11th, I was helping my friends and acquaintances to go home between my jobs, and I was moving around for 3 days without sleeping. I went to Fukushima immediately, and I drove there every week for a while. I get motivated by missions. I've been living for 58 years and I feel like the time has finally come to serve my purpose. Fortunately I have connections with some politicians so I'm working on them, and disclosing whatever information I know to people around me. I'd like to do my best to help as many people as possible to survive.

Ryusei Saegusa (Interview Part 2)

Interview Part 1


M: In places I'm mixing up the Noguchi Seitai (Noguchi-style manipulative body work) and Noguchi Taiso (Noguchi-style exercise). Could you tell us the difference between them?

S: There was an article in the Asahi newspaper called "Two Mr. Noguchies", stating that they were both very important. They are not related by marriage but they have the same surname and they worked at the same period by chance.

Mr. Haruchika Noguchi who created Noguchi Seitai, was one of the greatest physical thinkers of Japan. He established a unique Seitai method by combining eastern medicine of all ages with his own Seitai (body-conditioning) for conditioning the flow of energy, in order to awaken human's self-healing power. It is different from ordinary physical therapy such as "Seitai" or "manipulations".

The person who created Noguchi Taiso is called Mr. Michizo Noguchi. He taught physical exercise at Tokyo University of the Arts for a long time and he created "Noguchi Taiso" as a result of his research on physical performance. Apparently Mr. Ryuichi Sakamoto (musician) was taught Noguchi Taiso when he studied at the university. It is difficult to verbalize what Mr. Haruchika Noguchi did, but Noguchi Taiso can be explained to a certain extent and I think that is it's characteristic. I actually used to live near Mr. Michizo Noguchi so I had the honor of studying with him as well.

M: (whilst looking at materials written by Michizo Noguchi) These are very important reference materials.d0255328_1322943.jpg

S: In my life, things are happening the way I wanted them to when I was in junior high school.I have read Karl Marx, Kenji Miyazawa. But among all the books I've read, Mr. Haruchika Noguchi's philosophy was the most moving.

M: Were you asked to do Seitai by your friends when you were in high school?

S: I have been doing it since junior high school. I gave treatments to teachers as well.

M: Then your career as a Seitai practitioner must be for about 45 years.

S: In fact, I don't intend to cure the clients. I say this to my apprentices, that the intention of curing does not cure people. Just like when a person gets pushed they resist, if we try to cure they resist. There's always a cause of illnesses. It's possible for a client to be cured but they could die. Even when an operation is successfully done, the patient can still die.

I'd like to tell you about how I got into Edgar Cayce. When Mr. Haruchika Noguchi passed, I was not sure how to grope for the treatment. Mr. Noguchi also had a psychic ability. Had he not, it wouldn't have been possible to give such treatments. So I was reading about Edgar Cayce in order to understand what Mr. Noguchi did.

When we think of an old lady with a round back, when she dies her back stretches to her actual hight by itself without being pulled by others. If the back can stretch when one dies, it should be able to stretch while one's alive. But it's not so.

Humans die and become peaceful so we say "rest in peace". But when we're alive we cling onto our thoughts including delusions. I think that having a life with a body which is not trapped in any way is an object of practicing Noguchi Seitai.

In addition, "observations" come before "treatments". It can be said that when the observation is successful, the treatment will be successful. These days, people are trying to decompose and analyze genes and DNAs to know the nature of ourselves, but I think it is important to observe humans as a whole. Mr. Haruchika Noguchi was a wonderful observer.

M: You have mentioned about Edgar Cayce, can you tell us about how and when you found out about Cayce?

S: I was reading books about Cayce since I was in Junior high school. His face is like a holy man and when we read his biography, he is a man of pure honesty. I admire him and at the same time, I think it is so great that the U. S. accepted his ability and allowed his foundation to be established.

M: I suppose there weren't many books about Cayce published when you were a junior high school student, were there?

S: I suppose not. But even then, Cayce was mentioned a lot in the conversations between people who were practicing Noguchi Seitai. I still haven't read that many books about Mr. Cayce, but I admired him.

M: It's great to hear that people who were practicing Noguchi Seitai read books about Cayce. By the way, do you apply any of Cayce's remedies?

S: One thing I'm sad about in eastern medicine is that we don't have any means of communication between different methods. Everyone seems to be so proud of their own methods and I don't think there are many people who try to connect to other practitioners or study other methods. For western medicine, they have meetings and exchange each others opinions and informations and study together. I do boxing, karate, judo and aikido, all of them. In all the martial arts I studied, I became a rank title holder. It's great to practice one method, but you can learn many things from practicing others. This is my theory.

I think that treatment methods are the same. One way of treatment and diet can only suit a particular person, so we need to seek and learn many other ways. Mr. Cayce, Mr. Haruchika Noguchi and Mr. Michizo Noguchi are doing different methods but they are all connected underneath as long as they work for humans. I've been thinking that learning other methods help me to understand my method deeper.

Also the method becomes more practical when you find it by your own trial and error rather than being taught to practice when you were told to press certain vertebrae in certain cases.

Let's go back to your question. What I learned from books about Cayce was the meditation. I still meditate every time before I give treatments.

That is because during the Seitai session, sometimes I say crazy things to the client out of the blue. But often these crazy things I say have an important meaning.

Mr. Haruchika Noguchi also said to a client during a session that "It's bad to not give money back to your grand mother. You should pay back what you owe". "You may not be able to see, but your grand mother is standing there". One time he asked another client that "Is your son in America feeling sick? Do you have a picture of him?" When the client passed him a picture, he rubbed over it and said "Call him and see how he's feeling". The client called and found out that their son was recovered…

M: Really? That's more or less a miracle. If that's what Mr. Noguchi was doing, Noguchi Seitai cannot be practiced with manuals or techniques.

S: I feel that Mr. Noguchi didn't need any of that but he left the "form of inducing" to dull apprentices. He was touching clients as a commemoration. As I mentioned earlier that, I am envious of America for being able to research such mysterious parts of Cayce's readings with an intelligence to establish a foundation.

M: It's been 70 yeas since his death and there is still new research on readings going on.

S: That is more interesting to me.

M: Now, in your book "Saigo-ni Nokoruno-wa Karada-dake (only the body remains at last)" you talk about "Curtain and Panty method". This was very interesting to me, can you explain about this?

S: I'll give you an example. One day, I had a client who was a lady in her 30s claiming she had a collagen disease. So I said to her "I assume that you don't have a driving license, do you? If you get it, you'll recover". Of course nobody would believe such a thing. Then I continued "But you have to get it without telling your husband. When you go to driving school, you must try hard to keep it secret from him". Later, she successfully passed the test and got the license. I then told her to go to the hospital for a check-up. She reported that the disease was gone. The point here is to do things without telling one's husband. I've used this kind of method a lot and it always worked.

The Curtain and Panty method is like this. Wearing sexy underwear like g-strings which makes you feel "too sexy", and going for hair-styling to a young male hair-stylist who's your type. You have to hide the sexy underwear from your husband when you go home. That's all you have to do. It's all about waring a little sexy underwear and go to get a hair cut. But only doing this can change your body.

(He continued to explain how this method works and how this makes people healthier, but apparently it will not work if the person knows the mechanism of it, so we keep it secret…)

M: Then what about the curtains?

S: Curtains have various qualities and high end can be very expensive. For example, if someone makes a large amount of money, they can indulge themselves by waring expensive cloths. But it's so obvious to neighbors that they're rich. So instead, they buy some high quality curtains and hang them in the room where they can't be seen from the outside. This changes their consciousness by knowing that something expensive is in the house, but nobody can see it.

M: So the key of this method is for curtains to be very high quality and expensive, and panties to be sexy and expensive.

S: When I was in high school, I was interested in women's physiology. So I asked my friend who was the son of an obstetrician, to take me to the room and let me go up on the childbirth table. I took off my pants, laid on the bed and put my legs on the leg rests, while a curtain covered my belly… I thought to myself "Do women really take this position?"

M: It is shocking, isn't it?

S: Yes, it is. And women wear sanitary napkins. I wondered what that's like. I don't have periods and there's no groove in front of my crotch but there is around the anus, so I wondered what would happen if I placed a sanitary napkin there. I spent a whole day waring a napkin at back of my crotch.

I was a high school student, so I was so embarrassed. I went to a barber because I wanted my hair style to be neat at least, but I was wearing a napkin on my anus. I was so afraid of having a traffic accident. If anyone took my trousers off, they'll find out that I was wearing a napkin. I didn't want anyone to think that I was a pervert. I was in a panic. Thus, it takes more energy to change something which can not be seen than that which can.

M: Did you discover the "Curtain and Panty method" from that experience in your high school period?

S: Yes. It was the Napkin affair.

M: (Laugh out loud) That's amazing that you've done such thing in your susceptible high school period…

S: I wore a disposable diaper to know how babies feel. In those days, there were no diapers for adults, so I cut baby size diapers and made a bigger one and tried it on.

M: That's quite an extreme for a high schooler to do… It's understandable for a grown-up to do it as a part of a profession, but you were just a high school student…

S: I think it was the era. By the way, when I was in high school I got sent references from the United Nations and wrote a report called "The Outlook on the End of the World". I included the CO2 issue, nuclear problem, over-population, and gene manipulation. I expressed that the world will be perilous around 2000. It was the era of the student movement, like the Yasuda Kodo incident. So most of the students were politically aware. We had to study for exams then but I hardly did because I thought it was more important to have research on the future of the earth. To the contrary, the public were on a spree of Expo.

Ryusei Saegusa (Interview Part 1)

"I was reading about Edgar Cayce in order to understand what Mr. Haruchika Noguchi did."


Profile:Born in Tokyo in 1954. Ryusei Saegusa overcame his physical weakness through practicing Noguchi Seitai (Noguchi-style manipulative bodywork) and a macrobiotic diet in his boyhood. He joined the parachute team of the Self-Defense Forces, then he became an apprentice of Haruchika Noguchi. In 1984, he started to teach independently.After that, he went abroad and taught Seitai as he was grouping for the best method.
In 2009, he established "Tenshin-kai" which teaches a method combining Noguchi Seitai, Aikido, and divination. He recently wrote a book "Saigo-ni Nokoruno-wa Karada-dake (only the body remains at last)" (Kodansha)
Website: www.aikido.co.jp

Naoko Mitsuda: In your book you said that you found out about Noguchi Seitai because of the disease you had when you were in junior high school. Can you tell us about your disease myasthenia, and what was your condition like?

Ryusei Saegusa: I was 13 years old, so the first grade in junior high. Suddenly, I became unable to hold a pencil. When I tried to take note of what was on the blackboard, I couldn't hold a pencil. I could walk, but couldn't hold things. The teachers thought I was just being lazy. I visited several hospitals but they couldn't tell what it was, so it was hard.

I guess I have concealed my memories of that period so I've been trying to remember since you asked me, but it's chaotic and I hardly remember the details. But I remember it was hard.

I was happy when I finally found out the name of the disease at Keio Hospital but shocked when they told me that I won't recover.

Everyone gets upset when we are told that "You have a cancer" at age 60, but when a teenager gets told that "You can live for four years maximum", it is very shocking.

M: It must have been hard for your parents too.

S: They are very interesting people in that they accepted and gave up straight away. I couldn't give up, but they soon did.

M: I suppose you found Noguchi Seitai because of your condition. How did it happen?

S: Actually I found out about Noguchi Seitai before the symptoms of myasthenia appeared. There was an unforgettable math teacher called Mr. Nishi. I used to want to become a scientist, so I was really into maths. And one time in his class, Mr. Nishi talked about the automatic movement exercise of Noguchi Seitai, which is called Katsugen Undo (regenerating movement exercise). He also told us about his experiences: "When my kneecap broke, it couldn't be cured by normal medicine but I went to Mr. Noguchi and he cured it. When I got a cancer I went to him and I recovered."

No one else believed in the class. But I thought this could be true, there could be "an amazing man who could win several Nobel prizes", as Mr. Nishi described.

So after that class, I went to the teachers' office and asked Mr. Nishi if the story was true. And he told me more about Mr. Noguchi and he taught me how to induce Katsugen Undo roughly.

M: So you found about it before you became sick. That was very meaningful when you think of how this information helped you. It seems that you were guided by something great...

S: Yes, that's right. But it was really sad when I became sick. When I was 13, I looked up in the night sky and thought to myself that "I have four more years to live. I'll be 17…". My parents could give up, but I couldn't.

M: But then you knew about Mr. Noguchi who could cure even cancer patients, and that's why you could have hope. It is amazing how things happened at the right timing.

S: That's true that if I didn't have that information the result might have been different. I could believe such unusual phenomena because I always thought that there must be mountain hermits, and there are things that are unimaginable existing in this world since I was little.

M: So were you interested in the invisible world since you were a child?

S: I totally was. I used to foretell earthquakes when I was in junior high school… You know a child who often gets sick has sensitivity. When I was a child, I was very thin and weak. I loved to draw. And my parents argued a lot so I used to wonder why I was born…

M: You mentioned in your book that since you started to practice Noguchi Seitai in your junior high school period, you became "a student who was only interested in people's backs". What were you looking for in backs?

S: Children often think that "We can't trust grown-ups". Often grown-ups pretend to like someone when they're in their presence, but say "I hate that person" when they're not around. So I was wondering what I could believe.

Then one day, Mr. Noguchi talked about our spines. He explained that people who have a misaligned lumber 3rd, which is located right behind our belly buttons tend to have twisted posture and that they can't pee straight. It curves to either side. After hearing this, I was standing in front of the public toilet by Mitaka station all day, with a packed lunch.

When you see a person with a twisted lumber 3rd, you can tell straight away by the way they walk, and the way they shake their shoulders. When I'd see such a person, I'd follow him into the toilet and watch the direction of his pee. In those days there weren't any side screened urinals, so I stood beside them pretending to pee. Like "There, it goes to the right". I realized that whatever people hide can be told by looking at their backs as I watched the direction of pee.

M: Would we be able to analyze others by looking at their backs, not only in toilets but in our ordinary lives to a certain extent?

S: We know, even without looking at our backs. I wrote about this in my book. We can tell if a person wants us to stay or wants us to leave soon by the way they serve a cup of tea. We're only hiding it from each other. With our words we hide our emotions. So I think "American Indians never lie, our back never lies, either", and I've been interested in our backs. It means that our backs tell us more about ourselves.

M: You've mentioned that the singer Taeko Onuki was your class mate in junior high school and you asked to touch her back.

S: Of course it was over the clothes. Public baths were the place to see men's backs. We had a custom of washing each other's backs so I watched as I washed. I was already thinking of making living out of doing Seitai.

M: But you joined the Self-Defense Forces after the high school, didn't you?

S: Well, it happened like this. When I finished high school and I was 18 years old, I became an apprentice of Ms. Hiroko Yamane who was a teacher of Noguchi Seitai. It was too intimidating to me to be a direct apprentice of Mr. Haruchika Noguchi because he was married to the daughter of Fumimaro Konoe (ex. Prime Minister) who was a close relative of the royal family. Also it was difficult financially to become an apprentice of his, so I asked to to be introduced to one of his apprentices, who were excellent. Then I was introduced Ms. Yamane, with whom I studied.

At that time I still had the symptoms of myasthenia, coming and going repeatedly. So I negotiated with Ms. Yamane to become an apprentice if she could treat me completely and as a result, I became an apprentice.

But when I overcome the sickness, it was boring. People who visited there were all sick people and I was still young then… So I asked Ms. Yamane to allow me to go out for a year and I joined the paratroopers which was said to be the hardest of the Self-Defense Forces. It was arranged for a year but I stayed for a year and three months and went back to Ms. Yamane.

However, two days before my return, Ms. Yamane became unconscious after having a subarachnoid hemorrhage. She became conscious after I went back but she was paralyzed on one side so I nursed her more than I studied from her.

Still, there was a huge amount of old materials of Mr. Noguchi's work so I could study the procedure of what he went through in order to reach his final method.

M: Have you ever been taught by Mr. Noguchi directly?

S: I have at seminars and monthly events… But Mr. Noguchi's Seitai technique is so skillful that all the apprentices get disappointed. It is impossible to imitate his moves since he does them so divinely.

M: So do you say that patients were cured by something other than his technique?

S: It was something other than technique. If I exaggerated, it was like the patients were working for Mr. Noguchi.

M: Was it like they were cured just by Mr. Noguchi's presence?

S: Yes, it was.

M: How old was Mr. Noguchi when he passed away?

S: He was 65 years old. Once I wrote on my blog about the cause of his death and critical comments poured in to the page. He died by subarachnoid hemorrhage. People who use finger tips to press hard receive a pressure at the back of their neck. I had similar experiences twice and they were deadly. So Seitai practitioners should protect ourselves by taking calcium and such. Noguchi Seitai uses the thumb to press with strength.

Castor Oil Baby

Online Newsletter No.229
E-mail Newsletter by Temple Beautiful on February 6, 2008

For past few weeks, I have been receiving about 1-2 letters a day inquiring or pertaining to pregnancy. It ranges from news such as “I got pregnant!” to “I’d like to hear some advice about what mothers-to-be should be doing during their pregnancy”. Amidst the social issue of birth rate in Japan, I wonder if such social phenomenon does not quite apply to Temple Beautiful customers because of so many successful and happy accounts about healthy pregnancy.

That said, I would like to focus on the types of treatments for expectant mothers . Some readers who are not pregnant or have no plans to have any children for a while, it would be helpful to know in case someone around you does.

I HIGHLY recommend Castor oil packs during pregnancy for various reasons, which I will speak about along with my sister-in-law’s miraculous experience using it. (Some of you may have heard about this account as my brother have shared this quite often at his lectures.)

When Yumiko, my sister-in-law, married my older brother she had numbers of large Uterine fibroid and over the years of routine check-ups doctors told her that it would prevent her from getting pregnant. She did start using castor oil packs ever since she met my brother, but didn’t quite expect the Uterine fibroid to completely disappear but simply reduce in size. So it took everyone, including Yumiko, when she found out about her pregnancy.

However, when Yumiko went with my brother to obstetrician, they were told that her uterus lacked sufficient space for the baby to grow and that she will have a miscarriage upon two to three months into her pregnancy. Even if she didn’t have any, the doctors warned that she will probabilistically deliver the baby premature or require a c-section operation upon deliverance. The danger in premature babies is that they may end up with having some form of physical disorder.

It must have been a devastating news to the newly weds, but my brother, who has been a devoted Cayce follower, searched for similar cases. He finally came across one in which an expectant mother had Uterine fibroid like Yumiko. The cure, obviously, was castor oil packs. Since their discovery, Yumiko used the pack everyday, placing it right on top of her uterus. (For women with steady pregnancy cycle, three to four treatments are sufficient.) In addition to the castor pack, my brother gave 10 to 30 minutes massage every night using castor oil.

Fortunately, the most precarious stage in which the dangers of miscarriage passed, and the baby settled in the uterus without further issue. Eventually, Yumiko delivered a healthy baby. A miracle baby, her doctors said. My niece is 10 years old now(2008). She is growing up to be an intelligent and caring young girl, surrounded much by love and care.

In addition to this fortunate event, after delivering her baby, Yumiko’s Uterine fibroid shrunk in size. It is so small today now that she doesn’t feel anything at all today.

Let us go over a few points:

Medical data dictated that Yumiko’s Uterine fibroid were too large for any normal pregnancy to take place. However the routine castor oil packs created a condition for pregnancy.

In spite of warnings about miscarriage, she passed the first stage of pregnancy.
In spite of warnings that the fetus will not be able to develop in the uterus due to lack of sufficient space, the fetus was able to locate a space in which to grow.

The pregnancy led smoothly to delivery, regardless of clinical data that predicted her miscarriage. Not only did she have a wholesome pregnancy but the Uterine fibroid became smaller as well.

For this miracle to take place, various factors counted— parental love, baby’s strength, hope-- but I think the effectivity of castor oil packs deserve some serious attention as well. There are accounts about difficult medical cases pertaining to pregnancy that were resolved by castor oil packs.

In the “Castor Oil Booklet” our company made, I mentioned about a woman who had eight miscarriages previously gave birth to a healthy baby after trying castor oil packs and another account about a pregnant woman whose conglutinated fallopian tubes. Dr. Gladys McGarey, an American obstetrician has mentioned about “Castor Oil babies”, babies who were born under almost impossible medical circumstances.

If you know of anyone with issues such as what we discussed here, please let them know about the benefits of castor oil packs. You might possibly witness a birth of a miracle baby.

Allow me to note that Temple Beautiful’s castor oil is organic so it is a safe product for expectant mothers and babies alike!

Interview with Dr.Keiji Morii (Part3)

Interview Part1
Interview Part2


T: When did you start practicing meditation?

M: It was a long time ago when I started to meditate… It was after I came back from Australia, so in my late 20s. I actually have an interesting episode about starting meditation. It goes many years back, I think it was when I was 8 years old. A master visited me who was the teacher of the teacher of Yogananda.

T: What do you mean by that???

M: I met this "master" who came down in the light, with a few attendants. It was a brief but strong experience. It happened when I was awake, not asleep. When I look back, I wish I'd started to meditate then (laugh).

I had this memory when I grew up, and started to wish to see that master again. I can't remember his face nor his name, but I could remember that he was like a yogi of India. So I thought if I started an Indian meditation, it might give me some clue. So when I became twenty, I started to practice Transcendental Meditation.

After some time, someone great who wasn't the same master of my childhood, appeared again during the meditation. This master guided me to an ancient planet without man, and gave me many experiences.

The most shocking experience was the "clairvoyance" which allowed me to see a river located 2km away. My vision zoomed into a rock lying in the bottom of the river and I saw an insect sitting behind it clearly.

Until I met this master I had always had an image of these higher beings to have stunning appearances like Greek statues. This master was surrounded with light, but was a normal looking, short chubby bold headed old man (laugh). I was shocked when I realized that he was the master of Maharishi who spread the teaching of TMmeditation.

T: How did you find out? Did you realize by seeing his photograph or something?

M: Yes. I saw his photograph and thought "Ah, this old man!" (laugh). However, this master of Maharishi and my childhood master of Yogananda did not say who they were and now they're both dead (laugh), so there is no way to prove if I really saw them.

But I'm certain that I met them, not only because of the sensation I had when I saw their photos, but also from the way I have been guided later in my life.
I had such an interesting experience through TM meditation but I wanted to try another way of meditation. And eventually I reached Yogananda's SRF.

T: I see. I'd love to meet these beings surrounded with light!

M: You can of coarse. What you have to do is meditate through Christmas eve to Christmas day every year. For some reason it's possible to have a deeper meditation on Christmas day and it's safe because it builds this protecting magnetic field against lower beings.

If you continue this every year, someone will come down to you.

Additionally there is a 'field' which makes it easier for us to meditate than it usually is, so I suggest anyone to try casually. After learning the actual technique of meditation, you can do it in your own style. However, it is the most effective to practice at the same time in the same place.

T: I don't think it's that easy to meet the light being (laugh), but I'd like to do the Christmas meditation.
By the way, you've just told us about your mysterious experience at 8 years old. Did you actually have some kind of mystery power? Do you think you read "The World Within" when you were in university because it had some connections with your experiences?

M: Actually, I was very intuitive since I was very small and had such experiences which were written in "The World Within". The book reminded me of how I felt. For example, I remember feeling "I entered into a limited body" as soon as I was born. I also have memories of past lives and the time between the last life and this life. I refused to eat baby food for feeling unreasonable for the state of having to eat and excrete which I didn't have before I was born.

T: Really!? (laugh) Did you feel such way when you just were a baby?

M: Yes, I think I was about 2 - 3 years old. I had clearer past life memories when I was smaller, but I still remember some. The past life which is influencing my current life strongly is the one when I was a native American. I also had a memory of doing something bad in India, so I'm trying to do good actively in this life (laugh).

T: Well, it seems that you are doing more than enough (laugh). Have you had any mysterious experiences recently?

M: This isn't anything exciting, but I was once lead by my spirit guide to a place in the future in my meditation. I couldn't figure out where the place was for some time. Then recently someone asked me if I was interested to buy a piece of land, so I went to look at this place… and mysteriously, it was the place I visited in my meditation.

I had another experience of visiting the earth 360 years later. I was impressed that it was covered in plants and very beautiful.

T: It's great to hear that the earth is going to be a beautiful place in 360 years.
Dr. Morii, what are you planning to do in the future?

M: In near future, I'd like to work on creating a structure of a medical team. It'd be ideal if not only vets but various specialists of herbs, flower essences, etc. could collaborate and work together. And I'd like to publish some books on homeopathy which are already written. I know that decisions are made in Heaven, so if they're meant to be published I'll just leave it with them. It wouldn't happen if it's not necessary.

T: No, it would be a shame to not have them be published. I'd like to make an announcement to anyone who works for a publishing company, could you please publish these books (laugh).
Lastly, do you have some advise to give to pet owners about living with animals.

M: Children who live with animals tend to become gentle evidently. In our area, we had cases of abused animals, and some people reported who did it. We found that children who abused animals had never had pets. On the other hand, all of the children who reported to us, had pets.

It can be said that having a pet or not having a pet can influence children in their treatment animals. So I'd like to suggest to keep an animal in the household, especially one with small children. To the children who don't have opportunities to play in nature, relating to animals would teach them about nature and life. Also children who are not good at making friends might open themselves up to animals. Of course keeping pets can be hard work, but there is so much to gain from it.

And when children learn that humans and animals are equally precious, they become capable in taking care of smaller lives. This leads them to take care of other people.
In the greater picture, loving animals, humans, or nature leads them to contribute to the world, the planet, and the universe.

I wish not only children, but everyone to live their lives in a way in which one can feel closer to animals.

T: It is a wonderful concept that looking after a small life can lead us to contribute to the universe. I'll give my love properly to my two cats.

Thank you so much for your time today.

On the wall of his clinic, there are some paintings by Dr. Morii, and his favorite Cayce readings were displayed:

Think, for a moment, of the music of the waves upon the shore, of the morning as it breaks with the music of nature, of the night as it falls with the hum of the insect, of all the kingdoms as they unite in their song of appreciation to an all-creative influence that gives nature consciousness or awareness of its being itself. And harmonize that in thine own appreciation, as to bring music akin to the song of the spheres.(2581-2)

Through those same channels that the entity gained this understanding that beauty comes from within, rather than as an external condition - for the external fades, but that beauty of life, of individuality shining through that personality of self, gives the beauty that fades not - and as the warning was given respecting the understanding of self, and that to be accomplished through the efforts of self, these must radiate then from within. As to the physical appearance, and the outward show of face and figure, necessary that these be modeled after that of the self's ideal, that these may manifest that the body would radiate through its inner being. Accomplish this through that of self's own application to BECOME that the body would make of self. (2071-2)

Interview with Dr.Keiji Morii (part2)


Interview Part1

T: So homeopathy is effective on animals too. Skeptics usually say that "It is merely the placebo effect", but animals wouldn't be influenced by suggestions like humans (laugh).

M: No. For example, there was an experiment done on mice.
They inserted chemical elements such as arsenic and lead into mice, then one group was given just water and the other group was given homeopathic fluid. Afterwards, they checked the chemical which remained in their bodies, and they found that the homeopathy treated group eliminated chemical elements greatly.

There are several theses on similar experiments on metals. I can say that homeopathy definitely works for the result on these experiments as well as my experiences.

At our clinic, we use homeopathy on various symptoms from scratch to cancer. I know many cases of cancer being healed only with homeopathy and without giving any surgery. I think that it prolongs an animals' life at least (only on clinically tested animals).

T: Can you recognize the disappearance of a tumor visibly with X-rays?

M: Yes. In fact, we have records of not only X-rays, but MRI and ultrasonography.

T: That is amazing.

M: But in the case of cancer, leukemia, and HIV I'd ask for frequent visits so that I could carefully palpate each time. Animals also become ill because of their stresses, but the cause of their stress is not obvious like humans. Thus we need to watch carefully for their changes. It's very mysterious but animals sometimes take on the owners' illnesses.

T: How does it happen?

M: It happens like this, a diabetic person has a pet dog, then the dog becomes diabetic too. I know an interesting case that the owner had an accident and broke a bone in uncommon way. Then after the owner's operation, the pet dog had an accident and had the exact same part broken in the same uncommon way, and had to be operated on. And an even more uncanny thing was, the owner's cast was snapped one day by knocking it on something, then the dog's cast snapped in the same way.

Here's another interesting story. One owner and their pet dog had a cancer on the jaw area. The owner had an operation, but died after 3 weeks. Then the owner's family concerned that if the dog had the same operation, it would die as well. Thus they came to us wanting a homeopathy treatment. We treated as they asked, and the dog was healed. But they stopped giving homeopathy after a year and a half, then the cancer appeared again. The treatment was repeated and dog became better again. Eventually the dog died, but despite the illness it's life was prolonged by two and a half years. If the dog had had an operation like the owner, it might have died earlier. When we think about this, it is mysterious.

T: Why do you think such things happen? Are they attracting similar experiences because they are vibrationally sympathized for living together?

M: Animals are energetically sensitive, and also they are deeply affectionate, so that they share and take on all kinds of vibration from the owners.

T: I see (cry). Dr. Morii, you must have a good understanding of animals' feelings.

M: I cannot hold conversations like animal communicators, but I think I can understand them to a certain extent by looking at their eyes, their movements, and their aura. But I'm not sure if it's really what they want to say or if it's just filtering my thoughts. Well, I spend all day with animals, so I wish to be better at communications than people who have nothing to do with them (laugh).

T: You've told me that animals endure their pain to the maximum, so it is difficult to find their illnesses at an early stage. You must be able to sense their inner voices.

M: I suppose so. When I look at an animal, I can sense what it's suffering. But cats are harder to read, unlike dogs which show their illnesses quite openly. I think because cats' nature is closer to wilderness. That means, all wild animals have the nature of hiding their illnesses because weakness means their death.

Thus it is common to find a major illnesses of animals at vaccinations or check ups. In order to prevent this, touching pets body every day is effective. The sense of our hands is very precise, and we can identify small differences. And most animals apart from some cats love to be touched. Especially dogs love it the best, so I hope all owners will give plenty of touching and hugging to their pets.

People who are able to see chakras claim that dogs don't have a heart chakra. This is because their loving energy is constantly flowing so they don't have to keep energy at heart. I can't prove if this is right, but this makes sense when seeing how loyal they can be to their owners.

T: Do cats and dogs remain as spirit bodies after deaths? I've heard that they reincarnate as well.

M: When I was in Australia, my roommate went to a famous French psychic for a reading. He was told "I can see your Japanese roommate has many dog's and cat's spirits to help him". I have had such feelings always, so when I heard this, I thought to myself "I wasn't just imagining". I can clearly feel that the passed-on animals are around me and helping me, even today.

But these spirits seem to be different than before. I think they stay for a while and move on to the light after a certain period. I'm not sure about their reincarnations, but Cayce and Silverbirch deny animal incarnations. I guess they don't have the necessity to be reborn to do it over, because they don't create bad karmas like humans (laugh).

T: That is so moving when I imagine them helping you after their deaths. By the way, do you apply Cayce remedies to yourself?

M: Yes, of course. I use the castor oil pack the most to this day. I used to do it in the correct cycles as Cayce recommended, but these days I just apply whenever I feel like it. In general, I don't have any physical problems, so I apply when I need to cleanse my body, or after fasting. I used to intake Cayce's herbal tonics and used shampoo and tooth powder from the Heritage Store. I used the radio active appliance as well. I have used almost everything recommended in Cayce's remedies.

T: Have you experienced anything from applying the castor oil pack?

M: I can't say that anything has changed since I am healthy in general, but I feel much clearer and physically lighter after the pack. Actually, I'm the only one who didn't have appendicitis in my family, and I think it's because I applied the pack whenever I felt discomfort in the appendix area.

T: That's great to hear. I don't mean to self-praise, but I think if the castor oil pack was widely accepted in society, it would reduce the national medical cost of Japan and solve the problem.

M: I agree. Western medicine is definitely useful, but treatment using only western medicine would reach it's limit in near future. Though relying only on alternative medicine can be dangerous for acute conditions. Therefore, it is the best to apply both. If a doctor knew western and eastern medicine, traditional and folk medicine, the best treatment suitable for a patient could be given.

T: You are in fact, practicing what you've just said. I was told by another doctor that your knowledge on alternative medicine is extraordinary.

M: In my case, I have just spent too much time studying (laugh). I mean, I have learned 15,000 kinds of Chinese herbs precisely, but what I could use in the actual treatment was only a few. When I wrote the "Materia Medica" of homeopathy, I studied 25,000 kinds of herbs thoroughly. But I can only use 300 to 400 kinds. Thus, it can be said that the rest of the knowledge is not useful.

Although I'm continuing the study to formulate a system because even though the knowledge is not yet applicable, having that knowledge will give the depth to the understanding of a subject.

And also I think it'd be great if my effort made a foundation of easier application to those who choose this path in the future. The world of alternative medicine won't progress, unless someone wastes a lot of time.

T: You are so attracted to homeopathy that it's worthwhile to give so much of your time.

M: That's right. After all, if one ever witnesses the miracle of healing on an animal which is barely surviving, it is unstoppable.

T: You work at the clinic and study in-between work and writing books… I wonder how you spend a day. I suppose you must have an extremely tight schedule.

M: In the past I used to only sleep for 3 hours. I did this until around the age of 45. I had to read 100 to 300 theses every day after working at the clinic to study Chinese herbs. But these days I cherish my sleep and try to spend more time to practicing mediation at night, so I have a more relaxed life style compared to before.

T: By the way, I was told by many people that you are a master of meditation. Do you practice anything special?

M: I practice the technique which I learned with a historical group called the SRF (Self-Realization Fellowship) which was established in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda, who was the pioneer of Yoga in the western world.

After practicing meditation for 2 years following their technique and having to reach a certain level, you have a simple test. And when you pass it you have the permission to learn the higher Yoga technique called Kriya Yoga.

I highly recommend this technique for meditation as you can become aware of peace and existence of god within yourself. SRF does not manipulate you to any biased thought, they genuinely assist with meditation and the technique of moving our energy systematically. Thus you can work safely as a beginner.

*Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
He devoted himself to spread the divine spiritual science of Kriya Yoga, practiced in India for thousands of years. He emphasized the similarities in religion around the world and taught practical methods for individuals to experience god directly.
Author of the best-selling spiritual classic, "Autobiography of a Yogi" which is translated into 18 languages around the world.
