In mid-December, 2007, I suddenly felt a shooting pain in the left molar. The root of my ear and the entire left temporal region were painful, and I had a fever of forty. The next day I could receive Johrei from the teacher of the branch, and my children, elder sister, nephew and niece also gave Johrei to me thoroughly. Then the pain was relieved a little, and my face became swollen like mumps. My fever went down on the fourth day, and I was able to go to work though my face was still swollen.
The swelling of my face subsided, but then the gums began to swell and emit a purulent discharge. The throbbing pain in my left temporal region was also gone in about ten days. The pain of the gums was relieved and I was able to chew normally, so I left it untended.
The molar got chipped early in the new year and my tongue hurt when touched by it, so I went to the dentist. The dentist took an X-ray and said, "This is terrible. I'm going to write a letter of referral. You should go to the Red Cross hospital immediately." I was surprised, but it had no obvious symptoms and I did not think it was a serious matter. I saw an oral surgeon in the Red Cross hospital a week later.
I had another X-ray, and the doctor in charge said, "You got a disease called osteomyelitis. Bacteria got in bone marrow between the tooth and the jawbone, so the bone marrow decayed and melted. You will have an operation which pulls two or three teeth and takes decaying part and a little extra bone. You will be in the hospital a little less than one week." Everything went black. No matter how many times I asked, the doctor's answer was the same that there was no other treatment other than a surgical operation. Just imagining that I would lose two or three teeth and the bone would be resected depending on the state, I got so scared that I couldn't stop the tears.
I was given words by the teacher of the branch, "You receive Johrei thoroughly. Let's rely entirely on God." I told the circumstances to my family and elder sister and asked for their support in the case of being hospitalized.When depressed at the situation, "how could such a thing happen?" I heard from the teacher of the branch that Mr. Yamamoto talked about his own experience of osteomyelitis and that you would get better after letting out all the pus. I decided that I left it all up to Meishu-sama without having an operation. Then I felt good and relieved very much. My father was surprised, but he did Johrei to me every day asking if I was really all right.
As I told the doctor that I would not have an operation, he went so far as to say, "You will not recover without an operation and be able to keep your present state either. You will get worse but never get better. The decayed part of the bone will spread, and the jawbone will also break at the end." However, I persisted in saying no to an operation. For the time being I had the doctor understand it on the condition that I undergo a periodic medical examination.
I tried to go and worship in order to receive the Divine Light as much as possible. And I noticed that the swelling of the gums went down on the second day of the training session at the sacred ground (the headquarters of Kyusei Shinkyo) in May. Something like a tooth peeked out from the part where the pus was oozing out about one week before. After the swelling went down, the thing like a tooth appeared little by little, and one morning it came out like plopping down. It was about the size of 1 cm in a distorted shape like a pumice stone. The swelling subsided after it was removed, and the hole in the gums was gradually filled.
On June 17, I went to the Red Cross hospital for a medical examination after a lapse of three months. I told the doctor that a bone came out. He was surprised and said, "It is the bone, called a sequestrum, which was supposed to remove with surgery. You are like a dog. Awesome healing power!" After taking an X-ray, the doctor said again comparing the last X-ray and this one that the decayed part of the bone was gone as I thought. You kept on refusing an operation and let the sequestrum really detach by yourself, and it was eliminated naturally. It was amazing, but this tooth must be extracted and we must take the remaining pustule, but you might cure it by yourself again. The first doctor in charge was surprised to look at those X-rays with disbelief, "It is incredible!"
Three months later, looking at the X-rays of mine in the medical examination, the doctor said, "You've completely recovered. The black part in the previous photo turned white. Your disease is completely cured if all the part turns white." When I asked him that he meant the pustule was eliminated, he, who looked unconvinced, told me that your body overcame the disease.I experienced really wonderful miracle and thank Meishu-sama very much.
