Homeopathic approach to catastrophe and radiations problems; Fukushima, Japan

by Torako Yui

The Tohoku earthquake and the subsequent tsunami, which occurred off the Sanriku coast of Japan at 14:46 JST on Friday 11 March 2011, caused enormous devastation, mainly in eastern Japan, earning the name: the Great East Japan Earthquake. I am writing this article, in which I will briefly present the JPHMA’s activities, as well as my view on the meaning of this catastrophe, just one month after it happened.

                                      fukushima

According to the Japan Metropolitan Police Department’s statistics, on 30 April 2011, the figures are as follows:
Deathtoll 14,662; Missing 11,019; Injured 4,373 among 12 districts including Fukushima, Gunma, Igaraki, Tochigi, Miyagi, Yamagata, Niigata, Yamanashi, Nagano, Saitama, Tokyo and Chiba. 2.500 shelters have been built in 18 districts, caring for 127,000 evacuees. 48.564 buildings have completely collapsed, spread over 9 districts.

The shock of this catastrophe is as vivid today as if it had just happened yesterday.

On the day of the earthquake, I wanted to go straight to the affected area, but as I had already been booked for lectures in western Japan and as there was no access to the east nor electricity in the zone, I had to postpone my trip. Initially, I could only offer remote support via text messages to mobile phones. JPHMA members in the affected areas had home kits of 36 homeopathic remedies and contributed outstandingly by distributing homeopathic remedies to their neighbours; many of them are indicated for the kind of physical and mental trauma caused by such a disaster but none of them were appropriate for treating exposure to radiation. The fact that JPHMA had given homoeopathic self-care lectures to the general public on a routine basis became a great advantage.

Another unexpected situation occurred, however, at the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant. In 1971, General Electric Mark I nuclear reactors were introduced and have been working for nearly 40 years. The earthquake and tsunami disabled the reactor cooling systems, leading to nuclear radiation leaks due to a partial melt of fuel rods.

At the time of the earthquake, there were 54 active nuclear power plants in Japan, which would have totalled 77 if inactive and newly planned ones were included. The fact that such a large number of nuclear power plants should be built in Japan, a country of earthquakes, is equal to pouring gasoline on a fire!

Luckily there was not a complete meltdown, as in the Chernobyl nuclear accident on 26 April 1986. In Chernobyl, the reactor exploded and melted, sending huge amounts of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. In Fukushima, the leakage is one tenth that of Chernobyl. 

Nevertheless, some international media have reported incorrectly that the whole reactor had exploded, releasing an atomic cloud, making Japan an extremely dangerous place to visit. The press used pictures of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb on 6 August 1945, next to pictures of land destroyed by the 11 March tsunami, implying incorrectly that the land was damaged by the nuclear power plant incident rather than by the tsunami. Products from Japan could not be exported and, even Japanese people started to avoid products from Fukushima. When I visited Fukushima, where vegetables and fruits are produced, people there were deeply depressed. A farmer in Fukushima had committed suicide because he could not sell his produce, which was about to be shipped out.

Let us consider the Arndt-Schulz law, one of the major principles of homoeopathy. According to this law, if we are exposed to a large amount of radiation, a small amount of the radiation could cure the ailments due to the exposure. If it is the exposure is minimal, our own healing power should be able to reverse the damage.

I have created a radiation remedy ‘RA’ to heal the effects of radioactive substances. It is a combination of Cadmium sulphuricum, Sol, Plutonium nitricum, Kalium iodatum, Radium bromide, Uranium nitricum, Caesium hydroxide, Thyreoidinum, and Parathyreoid gland. Caesium 137 was carried to neighbouring European countries after the explosion in Chernobyl, but people who were not exposed to great density of radioactive rain seemed not to be affected.

After all, huge amounts of radioactivity have been spread by more than 2,000 nuclear experiments all over the world. Therefore, we do not have to worry about radiation out of hand. On a daily basis, we should try to avoid any intake of harmful substances and use a treatment like homeopathy to stimulate our own healing powers and push toxins out of our bodies. Radioactivity is not the only dangerous pollutant we encounter: substances in vaccines, drugs, pesticides, and food additives are also harmful. I think this nuclear incident has demonstrated the necessity to replace harmful energy, medicine, and foods with healthy ones, derived from nature.

From the time of the earthquake to my visit to the affected area

Immediately after the earthquake, on 11 March, I contacted the Institute of Homoeopathy in Japan and started to distribute the remedies I had created: ‘RA’, as mentioned above, and ‘AAA’ (Aconite, Arnica, and Arsenicum), free of charge. I also offered information to the public through our website and by email.

On 18 March, a JPHMA rescue team, in conjunction with Homoeopathy Japan Co, set off for Fukushima and Miyagi with these remedies and relief supplies. As the motorway was closed, it took 12 hours to get there and 9 hours to come back, which is about three times longer than it would usually take.

I had already planned to give a lecture in Sendai city, in Miyagi, on 2 April before the disaster occurred, so I added visits to Fukushima on 1 April and Iwate on 3 April, where I provided RA and AAA remedies to about 400 of our members and to the general public. I gave free lectures to explain to people how to use homeopathic remedies in time of disasters.

To read the full details of the reports, please visit the JPHMA website: www.jphma.org/en/index.html

These reports are the result of my own experience in the affected areas and are quite different from the reports that can be seen in newspapers and other media.

The effect of the RA remedies and AAA remedies

We are currently analyzing responses to questionnaires after using these remedies.

The below chart is the result so far, as of 30 April 2011.

Summary

1. I sent ‘remedies’ of encouragement through text messages: “We are supporting you.” “You are not alone.”

2. We took action: JPHMA provided homoeopathic remedies free of charge with the cooperation of Homeopathy Japan Co. The College of Holistic Homoeopathy provided free advice by telephone.

3. JPHMA organised a rescue team, which immediately delivered homoeopathic remedies and relief supplies.

4. JPHMA held free seminars on how to deal with disasters and provide emotional care, with cooperation from local JPHMA members.

5.  After the seminars, local JPHMA members provided free homoeopathic consultations.

6.  JPMHA collected approximately 4,500.000 Japanese yen, which were donated to affected prefectures and areas in need.

We helped and encouraged each other, which created a strong bond between us and a feeling of unity. JPHMA members seemed to be getting over this disaster more quickly than the general public, probably because they had been taking homoeopathic remedies on a daily basis.

The real meaning of the earthquake and of the radiation leak this time

Samuel Hahnemann said:

"Nations like the Germans, who have for centuries been gradually sinking deeper and deeper in soulless apathy and degrading serfdom, must first be trodden still deeper in the dust by the Western Conqueror, Napoleon, until their situation became intolerable; their mean opinion of themselves was thereby over-strained and removed; they again became alive to their dignity as men, and then, for the first time, they raised their heads as Germans." (Quoted from Organon 6)

Japan is reaching a turning point. Japanese people have been deprived of patriotic spirit and pride in their own heritage, from the fear of atomic bombs and a sense of guilt after the war. Ancient Japanese spirituality and wisdom, which live in harmony with nature, have been forgotten. Japanese people now deny nature’s healing power and dependency on unnatural energy, medicines, vaccines, and agro-chemicals has been encouraged. The lives of humans, animals, plants, and insects are suffering, as are the land, water, and air; Japan is now facing the risk of national ruin.

It could be said that the reality of this catastrophe is that it is a mirror of Japanese people’s mind. We hope that this devastating experience will become an opportunity for change, so that this suffering would not have been in vain. The real recovery for Japanese people would be to overcome their fear of radiation, to regain their natural healing power and their ancient wisdom of living in harmony with nature. Japan, as the site of a previous disaster with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, can be a beacon of hope for the world by showing that it is possible for a country facing the most extreme circumstances to recover and thrive once again. Homeopathy lies at the heart of this recovery and we, at JPHMA, will all do as much as we can to bring it into reality.

I want to say Thank You for the work you are doing. It means a lot to see you helping, especially in this way. I do have a question and have been asking this question, since the beginning and no one can or has answered it. Has the use of a Homeopathic remedy for the reactor site itself, been considered? I believe Homeopathy and Flower Essences, may bring faster reduction of radiation. I can explain, but not here. Please contact me at: oh_99@live.com

Thank you Torako, A heartening article that has put my mind at rest. I have been so worried about how your nation could recover after such an incredibly, horrendous smite to it's being. But having read your details of how it seems to you and that of course, homoeopathy will indeed assist those that need it most. Blessings on the healing of your country and its people.

Kaki tree

Thank you for the great article. There is so much to learn from Japan's trauma which is really all of our trauma.
I'm wondering if you considered the remedy diospyros kaki? It's made from the only tree that survived radiation fall out from Nagasaki bomb. I have found it useful in radiation toxicity.
Best regards,

"I think this nuclear incident has demonstrated the necessity to replace harmful energy, medicine, and foods with healthy ones, derived from nature."

Let us not forget that it was the power of Nature created this Tsunami. The same power that created homeopathy.
Worth considering for a while, I think.

Lac du Bonnet Water

Dear Torako Yui,
It is very painful to hear about the disaster in Japan and wonderful to hear about all the things you and your team are doing for japanese people, without household and so on. I can see the "homeopathic remedies pack" you made for this time. In my experience, I give to people who had cancer and undergone radiotherapy, Lac du Bonnet Water 200c. They improved just with 5 globules (the very small ones); no more diarreas, stink, itch in head and skin, and no more dismenorreas. The remedy can be found at Helios U.K
I´m sure that homeopathy will connect your people whith the roots of healing

Kinds regards

what the issue of this catastrophe
Reply #2 on : Mon May 30, 2011, 17:17:42
Dear Torako Yui,

It is very touching to read about what you did after the catastrophe in Fukushima. I think that this nuclear disaster is meant to make us change in a deep way; deeper than only on a national scale. At least, I hope so.

The quotation you make of Hahnemann is of a time before many more recent developments, especialy WWII and the Shoah. Pride we may be of other things than of fictions like nation, we may ask how it became possible that those can become mingled with other notions into something like a collective delusion as the one that served the NS regime.
I agree with you in the wondering about Japan's own WWII involvement and the following trauma of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. How could have followed such an unreasonable foolish trust in nuclear technology on a ground prone to earthquake? Very strange indeed, especially for Japan, with a set of very divergent cultural traditions and especialy after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to have gone into this trap.

The Japanese people seem to have believed blindly in its security as in need for quick economic development after WWII( as not having japanese CO2 energy resources). Maybe this was also caused by a (national) pride, beside the effect of a kind of dissociation of the nuclear bombing traumatisation?
I dont know,I think that more natureloving cultural traditions could have shown the way, but those, I guess, where more modest than nationalist
economic recovery propaganda, and as such not heared because of the delusions of pride of those later ones.
In Germany, we were luckier in the way that after having lost the WWII by conventional arms the nuclear arms race has always been something that we lived throught the allied forces that were stationed here. In this way, the nuclear question has since the beginning been an issue of the social mouvements for peace and against rearmament or arms race. Therefore, since decades the antinuclear movement could grow in social awareness to prevent catastrophes. Because it was always other nations' nuclear arms on our territory threatening to explode into disaster and then Tchernobyl,it started to open the wall, and people here never identified with nuclear power.
It is only now with Fukushima that finally those social mouvements become strong enought to make the governement follow the will of the population against nuclear power. Alongside the decades in which people fought against nuclear power plants as basis of the nuclear arms race, they have established the infrastructures which could make realistically possible to function in 10 years time on renewable energies.

I hope for Japanese, that they may find their traditional connections to natural energies and connect this to Japanese technikal know how quick enought to flourish without need to nationalist pride!! Radiation tells us so clearly how vain and ridiculous any man made borders on this planet are. I hope we can turn around the technological madness as humaity before we have destroyed too much of this beautyfull planet.

Sol
Reply #1 on : Mon May 30, 2011, 15:39:16
Donald Foubister who was one of my mentors often prescribed Sol before prescribing Carcinosin. I recall a case where I prescribed Sol 200 for a woman
who had a history of sunburn. A few days later, she expelled a great mass of thread worms.
