As the second generation of this faith, I grew up without medication nor serious
purification since childhood.
One day in 2007, I found a small boil on the side of my left eye, but I was not really concerned about it, thinking "Johrei will cure it." Nevertheless, it grew bigger and repeated drying and festering.
In a hospital, my doctor said, "It seems eczema", and prescribed internal medicine and ointment which I would not take.
The eczema appeared on the left side of my jaw and then expanded to the neck and finally to all the left side of my face.
I went to another hospital to examine, yet the result was the same.
My mother prayed and did distant Johrei to me. My husband gave me Johrei every day, and I did all my best. The eczema, however, even expanded to my entire face, neck and all the visible parts of my body.
Gradually I became anxious and took a medical examination at a major hospital. Again, I was diagnosed as eczema with allergi1es to house dust and Japanese cedar. There was no abnormality in my internal organs. My doctor suggested me to use steroid, but I refused it for its toxic elements.
I was relieved, knowing that there was no internal disease. Yet, all my face was covered with scabs, looking like a ghost. I was staying indoors, mentally distressed, and unable to go to work or to my children's school.
I awaited my children's summer vacation and went back to my parents' home in Wakayama prefecture. There, I went to a branch and received Johrei from the branch teacher and his wife several times.
As I also went to the Johrei center to receive Johrei from the master, my eczema went away. In two weeks, almost all the scabs on my face and neck came off.
When my eczema was cured, my menstrual bleeding became irregular and did not stop. In the beginning, I believed that lots of toxic elements in my body were excreted, so there was nothing to worry about. However, when I was back to work in Osaka, I bled more and often suffered from cramps. I was worried if I got cancer.
With my husband's advice I took a medical test, but there was no abnormality neither in my uterus nor ovaries. Though, anemia was terrible, and my blood pressure value was sometimes half the normal value. The doctor said, "If your bleeding continues, what we can do is the following four options: to remove your uterus, to stop bleeding by burning your uterine endometrium, to induce a menopausal disorder by stopping menstruation with medicine, or to use pills." I had to choose one from the four options.
While receiving Johrei and observing my condition for two weeks, I received protections from the god; bleeding stopped and anemic value increased a day before the examination day. Few days later, I stopped daily injections of iron. As I continued prayers and Johrei tightly, the bleeding completely stopped. I used to bleed once a week, but now menstruation comes regularly with a usual cycle.
I could get over the purification with many people's support. My condition has been better than ever. I would like to tell this fantastic faith to as many people as possible.
