Preface

Arthur
Kestler in his book entitled The Intrinsic nature of Change offers this
conclusion. It is futile to try to arrive at an understanding or solution of the
“intrinsic nature of chance” by conventional scientific common sense. The thing
to do is to postulate that chance, which is
of a higher dimension than the four dimensional world exists
and
to think that the postulate is an
actuality
. In short, chance
is beyond understanding by conventional scientific common sense

but it really does exist. Inevitability of
chance may be an apt description.

With
regard to procreation and genesis of living things, particularly of human
beings, for instance, the probability of the births of males and females should
mathematically be 100 to 100. Actually, however, the ratio is 106 males to 100
females. Therein lies the inevitability
arising from the mysterious rationality of nature
.

My
connection with germanium started by chance, certainly, but I cannot help perceiving there’s a working of some
supernormal inevitability.
If I may be permitted to express
unhesitatingly my sensibility and fidelity to my thinking,

I believe
that my life is inextricably linked with germanium and that my germanium compound was divinely conferred on mankind
through an actual being;
that being happened to be I. It may
have been presumptuous of me, but I have endeavoured, from beginning to end,
ultimately to suggest some unknown laws
existing in the universe
by interweaving emotional expressions
among the intellectual contents presented as the main body of this book. When I
review the seventy odd years of my life, I seem to find a consistent thread or a command from some outside source
that transcends my own will
which has determined my continued
research of this amazing compound. Though I have not received a formal education
in the field of modern medicine, I believe I have ample reverence for human life.

The very
essence of the healing arts must find its basis in the great
premise of life itself. In other words, its substance must be religious like
concept of saving the sick. Through germanium I have come to know the thrill of
living. I want to experience that by forgetting myself and saving other.

My
encounter with germanium was indeed by chance but it is a substance
understandable only through high level
meditative deliberations with a highly sharpened mind.

All my
years of study with germanium have led me to know the wonderful action the
germanium compound can have among all people. To disseminate this precious knowledge, without hesitation
or timidity I raise my voice in praise of
germanium.

I hope
that this small voice can reach the hearts of
all my fellowmen.
I have written in narrative style of my experience with germanium, and in
order to penetrate the hearts and minds of
men I have made use of some fables and parables,
but all is
genuine and based solely on fact.

When I
gaze upon the single crystal of germanium
with its silver gray sheen,
I have the illusion of seeing my whole life crystallized in this
substance;
I also feel, on the palm of my hand the touch of
a substance I am tempted to describe as the
fountain of life that fills the universe.

Asai, Ph.D.

A
Biographical Sketch of Kazuhiko Asia

Dr.
Kazuhiko Asai was born on the 30th of March, 1908 as the eldest son of Masajiro
Asai who was working at that time as an educator of Chinese pupils in Dairen,
Manchuria, the north eastern province of China. He stayed there until he was 10
years old; after that the family moved to Tokyo, where he graduated from the
Imperial University of Tokyo, Faculty Jurisprudence, in 1932. In the spring of
1934 he was sent to Berlin as the representative of Okura trading Co., Ltd. He
matriculated at the polytechnium in Charlottenburg, Berlin, in 1940, where he
studied mining and metallurgy, for four yeas. He stayed
in Berlin till its fall to the Russian army in 1945. He returned to Japan in
July 1945 and established the Coal Research Institute,
where he studied with several assistants the nature of coal in Japan. The institute has been
instrumental in introducing steel beams and columns to replace wooden beams and
columns in coal mines in this country. His research at the institute led to the
discovery of germanium in coal
and the extraction of germanium from coal gas waste
liquid
.
In 1953 he represented Japan at the
International Congress on the Study of Coal Structure. The same year he was
appointed to teach the subject of coal petrology at the Second Engineering
Department at Tokyo University and at the Science Faculty of Kyushu
University. In 1957, he was awarded the Purple Order of Merit
for his various achievements in the field of technical development. In 1962 a
doctorate for technology by the University of Kyoto was conferred on him. In
1967 he received an award by the fuel Association. In 1969 the Asai
Germanium Research Institute
was established. In January
1975 he was elected a member of the New York Academy of Science.
At present he continues his research and directs the
Organic Germanium Clinic.
Dr. Asai is married to Erika (nee
Hoelterhof) and has a son and three daughters.

Introduction

The
tradition of Western medicine is now strong in Japan, and because I promulgate
the theory of a common cause for all disease, I have incurred much opposition.
Some doctors have even gone so far as to call for the eradication of this
“amateur with no medical training who puts forth such irregular ideas.”So, while
hoping that germanium will bring about a radical change in the fundamental
philosophy of life in the medical world, I am also aware that I am likely to be
exposed to violent denunciations. In the
Germanium Clinic which I supervise, no pharmaceuticals are
used,
only my organic germanium.
Therefore, when a
“patient comes to the Clinic he receives a medical
examination and the appropriate prescription of germanium is given”.
In
spite of the fact that no additional medicine is given, people come daily from
all over Japan, and close to twenty per cent of them become so-called “germanium believers,” continuing to take the
compound over a long period. Of course, the
purpose of the treatment has already been achieved, but repeated
use has not once caused any side effects
or any other complaint up to the
present time,
nor do I expect any in the
future.
On the other hand, requests from practicing physicians have
greatly increased.

Some of
these doctors say that thanks to germanium, their patients are
extremely grateful,
and now without germanium they would be unable to
continue their practice. The effect of the compound is so unlike that of any
medicine heretofore discovered that I hesitate to call germanium a
medicine.

I would rather call it a health-giving
substance – i.e., a substance which restores a condition of health to those
afflicted with disease, and which sustains a condition of health in those who
are healthy.

The basis
for this, first, is its seemingly universal
applicability and beneficial effect in the treatment of apparently any disease
in adults and children.

Secondly, it is without the adverse effects associated with
medicines as we know them. To my way of thinking there are three conditions for
the treatment of disease which greatly affect recovery
. These factors are
supported by the latest advances in medical theory and endorsed by doctors
working with the organic germanium compound.

The ***principles of natural law
form the basis for my thoughts and medical techniques, such as biorhythm, as well as acupuncture and natural herb therapy may be
used in conjunction with them.

1) The first condition for insuring the
recovery of a person afflicted with disease is that he must
have a firm conviction that he will recover.

The
expression “Heaven helps those who
help themselves
,”
should not be taken lightly. To a certain extent,
the patient must become his own doctor in order to give full
play to the healing powers of the body by personal involvement in
the treatment.

Underscoring this idea is the theory
of electric potentials
of as diseased organ as it related to
stress as a cause of disease. Just as stress can be said to cause cancer,
ulcers, and other diseases, the stress or strain developed in these
particles cannot be reversed if the strain is not
eliminated by restoring harmony of the mind.
Biorhythm healing methods rely on just this sort of
harmony.

2)The second condition is
the maintenance of proper diet.
As mentioned previously,
maximum effort should be made to maintain a balanced
diet ***to prevent the blood from
acidity
***,
which happens if there is
an ***excessive intake of hydrogen
ions
which consume
the body oxygen and literally pollute the blood.

The only
way we can keep our blood clean and guarantee
good health is by maintaining a proper acid-base balance.

3)The third condition, a synthesis of the above two, is not a continuous
combustion process to develop an oxygen deficiency. We remain alive because there is a continuous
combustion process
within the body to supply life sustaining energy, a
process in which ***oxygen plays the main role.

If no
effort is made to maintain a ***healthy mind and body by avoiding stress and an
imbalance diet,
an oxygen deficiency will
result
.

The main
factor involved in the curative effect of germanium is the life style of the
individual. Thus, on an individual basis success of treatment can be interpreted
to be anywhere from 100% to 0, depending on how well the patient follows the
conditions of treatment.

Usually, disease is the result of an
unbalanced diet or ***excessive mental stress,
which may result from
***excessive worrying, ***lack of spiritual direction, among other
factors.

For
successful treatment such adverse conditions must be eliminated. After all, what
is the use of giving a person medicine if he insists on poisoning his system? If
these conditions are met, I have no doubt that the germanium compound will cure
the majority of cases of diseases which heretofore have been classified as
showing poor response to medical treatment. Considering the ***nature of the substance – one
which heals by instituting a condition of health throughout the whole
body,
(as opposed to substances which are used in specific treatments)
every effort must be made to give full play to the body’s own healing powers.

Jules Henri Poincare has said that ***truth was no more than a hypothesis by which the greatest ***number of
facts were explained under the ***simplest principles and without
contradictions.

My organic
germanium compound has proved effective against all
sorts of diseases, including cancers of the lung, bladder, larynx and breast,
neurosis, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, cardiac insufficiency, inflammation of
maxillary sinus, neuralgia, leukaemia, softening of the brain, myoma of the
uterus and hepatic cirrhosis
.

If a line
that runs through the many cases of cure taken as isolated points should be
found and an hypothesis known to be true should be set up, I should say that
***all diseases are attributable to
***deficiency of oxygen.

The
dangers of an oxygen deficiency in the human body cannot be over-emphasized. I
am not particularly trying to take a leaf out of a wise man’s book by saying
that “a balanced diet is an iron rule for staying healthy.” This has been the
cardinal principle of Oriental medicine and has been well recognized by modern
Western medicine. Germanium greatly enriches oxygen in the living body. Everyone
knows that oxygen is absolutely essential for sustaining life.

Biological Significance of Germanium

1. The
Element Germanium: Historical

Background

Since its
discovery, the history of germanium (atomic number 32, atomic weight 72.60, and
density 5.36) has been full of interesting epodes. The existence of the
germanium element was foreseen about 100 years ago by the Russian
chemist, Omitri Mendeleev. Mendeleev, the proponent of the periodic
law
(A ***chemical law which states
that the ***properties of the elements are ***periodic functions of
their atomic weights
) not only listed the properties of
the then known elements but also theorized the existence of several undiscovered
elements.

In his
periodic table, which he used to illustrate the law, he left certain gaps for
the yet to be discovered elements the 32nd column
was for an element whose properties he predicted referred to as
“ekasilicon.”
Mendeleev’s theory of new elements proved correct.
They began to appear with qualities remarkable similar to those which he
predicted: Two appeared soon after he announced the law gallium in 1875 and
scandium in 1879.

In
1886, a German chemist, Clemens
Winkler
, while making a chemical analysis of the ore
argyrodite,
noticed on completion of his analysis that the
sum of all the ingredients did not add up to the original quantity
.
At first he ***attributed this to some substance that escaped in the
vapor
produced with the ore which was being heated with chlorine ions in an acid solution.
In efforts to locate the missing substance, he developed and
experimented with several assays
until he eventually succeeded in
isolating it. In subsequent analyses he discovered that it fitted the
description of the element Mendeleev had earlier called
“ekasilicon.”
Winkler decided to name the new element
germanium
, in tribute to his fatherland.

2.
Germanium: A Semiconductor

For the
next 60 years germanium received little attention remaining a subject of
scientific study merely as a rare element. In 1948, however, it came to be
utilized for its semi conducting characteristics by Brattain. Bardeen, and
Shockley of the U.S. Bell Telephone Laboratories in the development of transistors and diodes, both of
which came to play a leading role in modern electronics transistors by replacing
vacuum tubes as amplifiers, and diodes by becoming excellent rectifiers. With
the advent of these solid-state devices, germanium came to play a major role in
the development of modern civilization from within the field of electronics.
With worldwide attention centered on the
characteristics of germanium as a semiconductor,
its potential role in the field of biochemistry went virtually
unnoticed.
Research conducted on its possible applications in
other fields brought few results and gained little momentum.

In
appearance germanium is a metal, but it is
completely without metallic properties.
Many scientists in various countries refer to it as a
non-metal, while in Japan we tend to classify it as a semi
metal.
Usually, it is referred to merely as a semi
conducting substance.

In the
classical school of physics, the characteristics of
semiconductors
were not clearly defined, and an adequate explanation for them was not given until the advent of quantum
physics
which is centered on the ***phenomena of effects ***produced by
atomic and molecular electrons
.

Electronics engineers have since come to marvel at the
***whimsical and ***magic like behavior of semiconductor
electrons,
and the quantum
revolution
soon spread to other fields
. In the field of ***biochemistry, ***quantum biology and
***electrobiology emerged
.

Whilst
reading about these new fields of science, the thought of
the characteristics of germanium, always in the back of my mind, flashed before
me. Germanium electrons had been known to exhibit an uncommon behavior and I
started thinking.

Germanium, atomic number 32, has 32
electrons,
four (4) of which are constantly moving
unsteadily along the outermost shell
of the atom
. These four electrons are negative (-) electrical
charge carriers
and if approached by a foreign substance one will be ejected out of its
orbit
.

This
famous phenomenon is known in
electronics as the ***positive hole
effect***
which is so ingeniously utilized in forming
transistors and diodes. When one of these
four electrons is ejected, a positive (+) charge hole is created

and

the remaining three (3) , seize electrons from other
atoms in order to maintain balance.

The
thought came to me almost intuitively, but one day when I was dwelling on the
fact that living organisms also come under
the physical laws of matter,
I was led to make a hypothetical supposition as to the effects that the
***semiconductor phenomenon*** would have on a living body
.

Since
there exists in ***physiology*** a phenomenon
known as the ***dehydrogenating***
effect
by which the
negative (-) ion of hydrogen (which may be
viewed as an electron) is discharged from the body,

I was led
to the assumption that germanium might have interesting biological applications
as well (Dr. Asai discusses the relationship of living
organisms and physics
in a subsequent section,

“Man-An Aggregate of Ultra Microscopic
Electricity.”
The concept
of dehydrogenation
will also become apparent in subsequent
sections. Briefly stated. It refers to
the action of organic germanium in ***seizing and combining with hydrogen
ions
which have accumulated in the body ***to remove them)

3. The
Existence of Germanium in Coal

My
discovery of the biochemical
significance of germanium
occurred as follows. Towards
the end of 1945 I was granted a permit to establish the Coal Research Center Foundation. My young
researchers and I were motivated by the belief that the rebuilding of Japan’s
industries after the war depended on coal. Since we were working in the public interest  naturally we felt that we should
operate as a non-profit foundation.
This research center provided the womb that gave birth to my organic
germanium.
Conditions at the time were very confused, and even
if there had been money there could be no research. Not only then but over many
years there were periods of great hardship and it
was only through great self sacrifice on the part of myself, my family and loyal
colleagues
that the organic germanium compound came into
existence.

I
had gained the knowledge that coal contains
germanium from Russian literature on the subject.
Furthermore,
when I was called to serve as an interpreter in the
Scientific Resources Bureau set up by the American occupation forces I chanced
to hear an American officer tell how there was a report on the rare element germanium
in a document confiscated in Germany (the PB report) and how ***it declared this
element would rule the future.

There is
still some doubt as to whether this was contained in the P B report, but it did
serve to create an interest in the subject. An opportunity had opened up, and
the fact that such an interest developed leads one to wonder whether or not it
was after all an inevitability rather than mere chance. Or, may not the fact
that this led to an unusual interest in
the element germanium be the action of a dimension far above the
ordinary?
At once, I had the staff investigate the amount
of germanium to be found in coal. The microanalysis of a rare element demands superior knowledge and
precision instruments.

The staff
and I worked unsparingly for nearly a year to establish a quantitative analysis
of germanium. As we did not have funds to acquire
the necessary instruments, we utilized those of other research
centers
. Right after the war, about the only amusement was the
movies and at that time the film “Madam Curie” was being shown, and I took the
time to see it. Even today I cannot forget the excitement I felt at the end of
that film. It was the impressive story of how Madam
Curie with a crude store room for a laboratory, and with kettles, buckets, tubs,
and the like, had succeeded in separating radium from
pitchblende,
and with the radium she had
extracted, produced a strange light on a fluorescent
screen.

The film
was pure inspiration. My staff also saw it and I pointed out to them
that research involved more than
material things; it demands much in the spiritual realm.

Coal is formed from the remains of ancient
vegetation carbonized in an air-tight state
as a result
of complete immersion in sea water when swamp lands
subsided millions of years ago.

In coal petrography, a black lump of
coal is classified and measured in three sections for the purposes of
quantitative analyses:

(1) Vitrit
the basically woody tissue.

(2)
Clarit: a hardened mixture of bark, leaves and twigs and

(3) Durit:
a hardened mass of seeds and spores. It became clear that germanium was to be
found in Japanese coal, about 5 to 10 parts per million (ppm).

I learned
that germanium is especially abundant in the vitrit or woody section. It occurs
in comparatively small quantities in the older coals of the Coal Age mainly the
European and American varieties, of which the original plants were of the fern family while coals of the younger
Tertiary Period, such as those formed principally of the Sequois-dendron
giganteum (a tree of the redwood family)
commonly found in Japan
and East Asia, contain a considerable amount of germanium.

4.
Germanium and Plants

During the
course of my analysis. I became curious as to why the wood section of the coal
contained such particularly large quantities of germanium. On further
examination of various coals, I detected the existence of medullary tubes, which are the vessels that plants use to draw nutrients from the
soil.

In short,
I reasoned, the germanium in coal was first
of all in the plants which were the source of the coal
.

In other words, it was primarily in living
matter,
and in my judgment, did not enter the coal later from
the surrounding soil or mud. New discoveries engender doubts and opposing views.
As might be expected, the
scholarly
experts violently ridiculed my theory.

For my
part, however, the connection between germanium and plant life was too clear to be
doubted
.

I saw a
definite need to further clarify the relationship between plants and germanium.
I turned to an acquaintance of mine in the Ministry of Agriculture and
Forestry
who assisted me in obtaining nearly 40 varieties of different species of bamboo
from various parts of the country.

I
conducted a microanalysis of each of the samples and, as such advanced analytical equipment as an atomic
absorption photometer
was not available in those days,
the time involved in this work was incredibly long. My efforts were fruitful,
however.

Analysis showed that several varieties of bamboo grass contained 15 to 20 ppm of
germanium.
This is a significant amount in the
light of the critical amounts of such pollutants as small as one ppm of organic
mercury in foodstuff or one ppm of sulfurous acid in the atmosphere

considered fatal to living things.

Viewed
from this perspective I could not help thinking that the particularly
large amounts of germanium in the bamboo
grass must be of importance to its existence.

Continuing
my analysis with other plants, I detected considerable amounts of germanium in tea leaves, oak leaves, chlorella,
and so forth.
I soon began to suspect that the existence of
germanium in these plants has some connection
with chlorophyll,
with germanium perhaps acting as a catalyst with
chlorophyll
.

Again, to
consider the semiconductor characteristics of germanium, there is also the
recently discovered Honda-Fujishima effect
whereby a semiconductor placed in water and exposed to sunlight acts as a photo electrochemical cell electrolyzing water into
oxygen and hydrogen.

(“Electrochemical
photolysis of Water at a Semiconductor Electrode” Nature. Vol. 238, July 7,
1972, 37. ) In terms of plant biology, when
water is broken down into oxygen and hydrogen by this method, oxygen is
discharged from the plant and hydrogen combines with the carbon of carbon
dioxide absorbed by the plant to form carbohydrate.

In effect,
this means that in the process of
assimilation plants produce starch sugar electrochemically
from water only,
a fact which seems to verify that germanium or some other semi conducting substance
is essential to the growth of plants.

In fact,
although in quantities which vary a great deal from plant to plant, all plants seem to contain
germanium.

Observing
such phenomena, I was astonished at how the
laws of nature seemed to support the hypothesis that germanium plays a very
important role in relation to biochemical life.

Discoveries lending verification, however, followed in rapid succession.
I was further surprised to find that the plants containing unusually large quantities of germanium were
without exception those valued as Chinese medicinal herbs.

This
discovery renewed my admiration for the accumulated wisdom and experience of
Oriental medicine with its 2,OOO-year history, and added to my incentive to
uncover the biochemical effects of
germanium.

My first
steps were to measure the germanium content of those plants reputed to have
beneficial effects in the treatment of malignant tumors. I obtained the
following results.

  • Shelf fungus (Trametes cinnabarina Fr.) 800-2000 ppm
  • Ginseng (from Shimane Prefecture, Japan) 250 ppm
  • Ginseng (from Shinano district, Japan) 320 ppm
  • Sanzukon (Codonopsis Tangshen) 257 ppm
  • Sushi (Angelica pubescens Maxim.) 262 ppm
  • Baternut{Trapajaponica Flerov) 239 ppm
  • Boxthorn seed (Lycium Chinese mill) 124 ppm
  • Wisteria knob (gall) ( Wisteria ftoribunda ) I 08 ppm
  • Pearl barley ( Coicis Semen) 50 ppm
  • Gromwell (Lithosemi Radix) (Lithospermum officinale) 88 ppm

Shelf
fungus
,
heading the list above, for centuries has been reputed to
be effective in the treatment of cancer, and Nobel Prize
winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn has even referred to this remarkable herb in his
book, Cancer Ward.

Another plant reported to be effective in the treatment of cancer is a moss found in a
small area of the Japanese countryside. I obtained some and was moved rather
strangely to find that it also contained a rather large amount (250 ppm) of
germanium. It should be pointed out, however, as later research revealed,
250 ppm is far from being an effective dosage against
cancer.
Next, I analyzed those plants which are generally
regarded as conducive to good health and found that they also contain fairly
large quantities of germanium:

  • Aloe 77 ppm
  • Comfrey (Symphytum Peregimum) 152 ppm
  • ChIorella 76 ppm
  • Garlic 754 ppm
  • Bandai udo (Aralia cordata) 72 ppm
  • Bandai moss 255 ppm

Note: The
germanium content of the plants analyzed in both of the above lists is not
distributed evenly throughout the plant body.

With
ginseng, for example, even ginseng grown in Chinshan, Korea, where the world’s
most fertile crops of ginseng are produced, germanium is concentrated in the area extending from the center
of the roots to the stems of the leaves;

while the
heavily concentrated area registers as much as 4,000 ppm, the peripheral root hairs contain no germanium at
all.
Results of the above analyses and subsequent experiments
eventually enabled me to give a plausible
explanation for the presence of germanium in plants.

Ginseng,
for example, will not grow freely but requires soil of a particular consistency.
Even then, from ancient times it has been known that after one good crop it
takes up to 30 years to produce another crop of harvestable quality in the same
soil. I conducted an experiment by obtaining ginseng sprouts approximately 8 cm
in length and planted them in separate boxes. One box was sprinkled with a
solution of germanium acetate and the other was left untreated. Six months
later, the sprouts to which the germanium acetate
was given had grown to a height of 30 cm and gave off the distinct aroma of
ginseng.

In
contrast, the sprouts in the second box had grown to about 10 cm and gave off
only a faint scent of ginseng. Obviously, germanium played an important role in
the growth of this plant.

*Ginseng is the common term for either of two herbs from
the family Araliaceas, Panax quinquefolium and Panax
schinseng
The former is the North American ginseng while the latter is
common to Northeast Asia.
Noted for its soothing properties,
from time immemorial the Chinese have
considered ginseng a cure for most illnesses,
and the generic term “Panax” itself originates
from a Greek word meaning “Panacea.”)

5. A
Weapon for Self-defense

For a more
exact clue to the role germanium plays in plant life, it is interesting to note
the wisteria plant. When attacked by germs and
viruses, wisteria forms a knob (mentioned in the first list as containing a high
concentration of germanium) in self-defense. This is a strong indication that
the plant is using germanium to fight off the invading viruses. Further evidence
that germanium serves to combat viruses in
plants
is a species of bamboo grass common to Yakushima (An
island located in the southern part of Kyushu, Japan) which received wide notice
a number of years ago for its effectiveness in treating cancer. I obtained some
and confirmed the presence of germanium in this plant.

After a
number of people had plucked the leaves, however, the roots began to weaken.
What became apparent, in line with my theories was that the plant’s ability to resist bacteria was lowered due to a
disruption of the germanium cycle.

The
germanium existing in the soil, which is normally absorbed by the roots and
returned to the soil when the leaves die and fall, was no longer present in
adequate supply. Consequently, the plant became defenseless against bacteria and
decayed.

The same theory holds for ginseng also, which
would be just as susceptible to the thousands of viruses and bacteria existing
in the soil and would soon rot if it were not for its extremely high germanium
content.
One reason why, until recently, it has taken so long to
cultivate regular crops of ginseng is that when one crop is harvested the
germanium content is removed from the soil. A recent report
says that success has been attained in harvesting an annual crop of ginseng by
thoroughly disinfecting the soil.
Although the beneficial effects of
ginseng grown without germanium may be rather dubious, I believe the report
re-emphasizes the role of germanium.

In
addition to the plants mentioned above, germanium is also present in the
structure of various mushrooms such as Cortinellus shiitake, champignon, and
kawaradake. All these mushrooms are susceptible to various diseases and could
not exist without sufficient resistance to
bacteria.
Interested in finding out more about the antibiotic properties of germanium,
I conducted the following two experiments.

Experiment
I. A gelatin commonly used for the cultivation of bacteria was stained with
methylene blue and put into five test tubes. Ten varieties of bacteria were then
introduced into the gelatine at random and a solution of germanium complex salt
was poured into two of the five tubes. Since various bacteria require oxygen
from the methyene blue to propagate themselves, the methylene blue takes on a
transparent gray after the oxygen has been
used.
In the tubes containing germanium, however, the methylene
blue maintained its original color, indicating that the bacteria died, being
unable to utilize the oxygen.

Experiment
2. Using another method for cultivating bacteria, gelatin was put on two test
plates, one containing germanium and one without it. Various microorganisms were
introduced and molds of various colors began to grow on the surface of the
gelatin without germanium. No change occurred, however, on the plate containing
germanium. However, about a week later, dark spots
appeared on the surface of the test plates of gelatin containing
germanium
used in Experiment 2. In no time the spots, appearing
to be miniature aegagropilas in form and color, developed into well rounded
spheres about 7mm in diameter. Nonetheless, when viewed from a different angle,
the above phenomenon, rather than indicating failure, merely re-emphasized the
effectiveness of the germanium solution. The bacteria used
in the first experiment died because their molecular structure was destroyed by
the dehydrogenating effect, or oxidizing action of germanium.
The mold
which grew on the test plate containing germanium used in Experiment 2, however,
grew principally due to the presence of germanium –
a large mold resembling aegagropilas
could not have grown
without germanium because the microorganisms present would have destroyed it
before it was established. The mold made use
of the germanium to fight harmful bacteria as well as to facilitate its own
growth.

In an
experiment with rice plants
I discovered another

effect of germanium: it increases their resistance to cold.

In a
greenhouse, rice was grown at a temperature of about 20°C having first been
immersed in a germanium solution for two days. When the rice grew to a height of
about 30cm, the temperature of the greenhouse was lowered to 5°C. As a result,
the rice plants grown from the unhulled rice which had not been immersed in the
germanium solution soon withered and rotted from the cold. The plants grown from
the unhulled rice treated with germanium, however, were unharmed by the cold and
steadily continued their healthy growth.

Various
other experiments led to the observation of
other interesting phenomena.
When only a small quantity of the
germanium solution was used, the growth of various plants was greatly
accelerated and their flowering period was advanced. Germanium was also found to
have positive effects on plant cuttings. Improved
assimilation was noted when water drawn by the plants
was electrolyzed by sunlight with germanium acting as a
catalyst
.
All these experiments pointed to a very
interesting relationship existing between
living substances and metals
.

In nature there is a transmigrational phenomenon whereby metallic elements existing in the soil play an important part in
plant growth when absorbed by plants.

Animals absorb these elements after
feeding on the plants and return them to the soil through evacuation or upon
death.

Naturally, the metallic elements
involved in this cycle move in organic form

from the plant to animal bodies,
and I
became extremely interested in determining what form of organic compound is present in living
organisms.

If this organic compound could
be found and synthesized.

a substance could be created which would surely have
beneficial effects on all forms of life.
The physicist
Schrodinger
said,

“Life is a supreme work of art created by the
hands of God through quantum mechanics.”

Since
I was setting out to create a substance of vital importance to life which this great scientist referred
to as God’s work of art,
I had to adopt the proper
frame of mind. The physical laws of nature are complicated so that the creation
of a new substance is the most difficult of problems. To this end, in a spirit
of prayer to God, I have undergone extreme hardship and devoted thirty years of
my life.

6. Synthesis of Organic Germanium Compound

To invent is not the conquest of
nature.

-Man creates nothing, he merely
uncovers things which were heretofore
unknown-.

The synthesis of
organic germanium has fulfilled a vision I have had since youth of doing
something good for mankind. However, it was not an easy task. Research on the
organic germanium compound progressed smoothly at first. Working with germanium
in organic form was not entirely new to me for I had previously met with
considerable Success by extracting germanium from coal in the early 1950’s. I
had also succeeded in obtaining large quantities from liquefied coal gas.
Previous research activities had been directed primarily at obtaining an
inorganic ~ germanium of a high purity for use by the electronics industry.

To extract germanium from coal, I
developed a process whereby the organic germanium in coal is removed at high
temperature in a carbonization furnace.

It is then liquefied by adjusting the pH
and burned to eliminate miscellaneous organics. Afterwards,
it is chlorinated and this chlorinated organic germanium is converted by
***hydrolysis
into ***germanium
oxide***,
a white powder, further reduced by hydrogen. Increased purity
is achieved by ***zone melting, and finally a
lump of cylindrical shaped silver-gray single crystals is produced.

The
principal object of my research with germanium until that point had been to
convert the organic germanium obtained from coal into an
inorganic substance for the electronics industry
I was now faced
with doing the reverse in converting
inorganic germanium into an organic substance if it was to be of use in the
field of biochemistry.

I first
thought that in order to obtain a germanium
compound which is biochemically active,
the synthetic germanium must be made with an affinity to living
cells.

My
research staff and I studied the possibility of compounding germanium with
either amino acid or nucleic acid. We attacked these and other possibilities
from every angle, but our attempts failed. At the time, publications on
germanium in Japanese or any other language were virtually nonexistent and ten
years went by almost completely unnoticed while we were groping in the dark. In
the meantime, the once flourishing coal industry had reached its zenith and
began to decline from around 1959. With the decline, the royalties and research
grants which I had been receiving from coal mining companies for my discoveries
decreased sharply. My personal finances were also nearly exhausted, and it
became increasingly difficult to run a research laboratory I often say, “Poverty
and affliction are the mother of invention.” Once I discussed this matter with
Dr. Reppe, a German scientist who had been awarded the Nobel prize for his work
in the chemistry of acetylene.

He said, ” Invention is made up of 90 %
perspiration and 10 % gray matter.

Whilst
trying to combat and resolve these difficulties I realized the danger of losing
my creative spirit. I began to read fervently From Religion to Science by
Bertrand Russell ; Einstein and the Order of Space; Zen and the Art of Archery
by Eugen Herrigel; Dogen (about a Zen work), and several other books by Japanese
authors. I made notes of the thoughts of great men and these supplied the thread
that kept me from succumbing completely. The saying which sticks uppermost in
mind, however, is “God may give you a chestnut but won’t crack it and take it
out of the shell for you.”

In
November, 1967, a member of my research staff who stayed on, walked into the
room holding a test tube of white powder.
Raising it slowly, and with an expression on his face which radiated the whole
room
, he uttered the words I had been waiting ten years to hear.
“Dr. Asai, the water-soluble organic
germanium compound has at last been synthesized.”

For the
first time in my life I shed tears of joy in deep silence as a man in ecstasy.
They were tears of almost religious
exaltation.
The event proved to me that all of man’s struggles
are not in vain. The organic germanium compound synthesized on that day has
changed my life, and as I hope you shall see, has done something good for
everyone who has come in contact with it.

7. Myself as the Living Body Test

The newly
synthesized water-soluble germanium compound has been a blessing in every sense of the word.

Technically termed car boxy ethyl
sesquioxide
of germanium (GeCH2CH- “C00H)202 (Refer to Appendix 1 The
Organo Germanium Sesqujoxide) it features three oxygen atoms affixed to each
germanium atom as indicated in the figure below.

Germanium
has four electrons available for sharing: one
is a free radical
(not shown in the figure ). while the other three are affixed alternately to an oxygen
atom.

The oxygen
atoms, in turn, a bed combine with germanium atoms in a manner resembling of
flowers or a regularly expanding gymnastic formation. Each time I view this substance which so magnificently illustrates the laws of nature and contains the potential to alter the
course of life
,

Einstein’s
words “The perception of mystery is the: source of
every learning and discovery,” come to mind. Till the discovery of the compound,
I had managed to keep myself in fairly good spirits by reading,

but my physical condition had deteriorated, and I was in a state of virtual
disability. Doctors had diagnosed my illness as a severe case of polvrheumatism
complicated by arthritis and had given little hope of . Improvement. True, the
organic germanium compound had just been
synthesized, but it was still in the experimental stage.

Usually
with a new medicine, extensive toxicity tests
are made
before it is used on
people.

I decided
that my own illness would be its first real test. My decision was not entirely
based on blind faith, however. Prior to the discovery, my years of research with
plants and animals had indicated that its overall effect would be beneficial, or
harmless at least. Furthermore, some scientific data from the Soviet Union indicated that germanium was
non-toxic
.

I took
some of the white, powdery organic germanium with water. Improvement was slow at
first, but I continued to take the solution in large dosages for several days.
Gradually, I began to feel better and in ten days I was up and walking around
the house-at times feeling robustly healthy.

Since the
rheumatic affliction I was suffering from is
generally regarded as incurable by modern medicine,
I had been
visiting an acupuncturist in the neighbourhood in an attempt to relieve my
pains. Upon examination after only a few visits, the acupuncturist was astounded
to find that my body had already healed to an unbelievable extent. Moreover, on
a subsequent visit he requested some of the compound for his other patients,
convinced that it would help them. After taking it for several more weeks until
1 was assured that it was completely non-toxic, and that there was no sign of
its accumulation in my body, however, I gave him some. Again, he was astounded
as patients who had been suffering from a
variety of diseases, heretofore regarded as virtually incurable-

Cancer, epilepsy, cirrhosis of the liver and a list
of others
– all showed marked
improvement
when administered
the compound
.

Developments were indeed encouraging. Unfortunately, however, the
acupuncturist was forced to discontinue treatment with germanium because it was
pointed out to him that the use of germanium at this stage constituted an act
against laws governing the use of medicine in Japan.

8. Effects on Animals

Before
describing its effects in the human body I will mention a few examples of my
germanium compound used in animals. It seems to have an almost miraculous
efficacy in these cases. A Siamese cat at Our home had been in the fangs of a
dog during a wild fight. The wounds were so
serious
, we began fearing for its life. We started applying
dressings to the wounds with a water solution
of the organic germanium,
at the same time forcing him to drink this solution.

This was
done in the presence of the veterinarian we had called. On calling again a
few days later, he was almost dumbfounded at the
rapid recovery of the cat,
saying that he could now believe in miracles.

The large
Japanese carp specially bred for
decorative purposes, being artificially raised, are liable to contract diseases
easily. An acquaintance who was keeping such carp reported to me that several
had contracted a disease. Some of their scales were
peeling off.
Lying on their sides,
they were gasping for air
apparently
on the verge of death.

On my
advice he put a pinch of the organic germanium
compound
into the water in which they were swimming, and to his utmost delight the fish soon began swimming
vigorously,
biting greedily at the feed in which they had showed
no interest only a short while previously. The owner of the carp now claims that
the organic germanium compound is indispensable for breeding carp. Germanium
showed the same curative effects on cats, dogs and
horses where diseases withstood treatment in the conventional
manner
, so that many veterinarians have strongly requested that
the organic germanium compound be made available for general use as soon as
possible. Bird lovers who used germanium on their ailing birds have also
expressed their delight at its efficacy. A female Dobermann imported from
England was mated seven times within 5 years but did not conceive once. The
Owner became worried that the dog would age without giving him a litter. As a
last resort he turned to intravenous and
subcutaneous injections of organic germanium one month before the dog came into
heat.

These
injections were continued all through the mating season. This time the
dog conceived, delivering a litter of five males and
six females, and children doing well
to the utmost delight of
their Owner. No matter how much is given to animals, there is no lethal level to
report. The more they get, the more active they become. In the Drugs, Cosmetics,
and Medical instruments Act, the lethal amount is reached if half the animals
die. With germanium there is no lethal amount. Therefore, it is not a medicine.

9. Germanium as an Experimental Medicine

Having
virtually recovered from my own disease. and witnessed the mysterious healing
action of the organic germanium compound, I became anxious to see it put to use
for medical treatment. I wasted no time in
initiating toxicity tests
with animals at an authoritative
research institute. The tests they ran included those for acute, subacute, and chronic toxicity, as well as deformity –
producing effects.

The
results of all the tests showed the compound to be
completely non-toxic and harmless.
(Refer to Appendix 2-1, 2-2,
Toxicity of Organo Germanium.) With thorough assurance that the compound was
non-toxic, I was able to obtain financial backing and opened a clinic on the
outskirts of Tokyo. My doctor friends agreed to rely on germanium as much as
possible in their treatment, and together we witnessed the remarkable recovery
of patients with diseases that had hardly responded to medical treatment.
Thorough records of the patients’ reactions to treatment and course of recovery
were maintained to develop an adequate explanation of the mechanism by which the
compound heals. People taking my organic germanium continued to do so in
increasing numbers when they saw its remarkable results. I gave it to them at
cost, just enough for research expense, and laid down the following two
provisions:

First of
all, my organic germanium should never be considered a medicine.

It enriches the body’s oxygen supply, and one is
cured from disease by his own powers.
One must put great trust
in germanium, and pay close attention to his diet in order to avoid
constitutional acidity. Secondly , I have labored earnestly for more than 20
years, motivated always by a vision that the
organic germanium I was producing was a godsend from heaven to alleviate human
suffering

and to save humanity from disease.

That means that the sick must take only germanium, add
prayer to it and use no medicine in addition.

If used in conjunction with other medicines its effectiveness is
diminished.

The great
surgeon and scientist, Alexis Carrell, has said: “Although man has been
fascinated by the remarkable progress that science has made in dealing with
unliving things and inanimate objects, he has as yet failed to realize that the
flesh and minds of human beings are also governed by laws which are as precise
as the world of stars and many times as mysterious. Moreover, he is ignorant of
the danger inherent in the violation of such laws.” (Alexis Carell: Man, the
Unknown)

Watching
the effect of the compound on the patients at our clinic, these words came to
mind. It seemed as if germanium were a
substance springing from a yet unknown dimension with a direct link to the vital
forces of life.

I am a
scientist, however, and well aware of the dangers of non empirical thinking and
soon set about to define the mechanism of the
compound in scientific terms.

By watching all the changes that took place with
patients following the administration of the compound,
I was
able to conclude that its healing powers m ay
be attributed to the fact that it brings about a sharp increase in the body’s
supply of oxygen:

A patient will feel a certain warmth
surging throughout his body within 10 minutes of so after taking the compound
some people actually feel
as if they have been given a mixture that included alcohol. yawning soon ceases,
blood becomes less viscous and complexions take on a healthy glow.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is quickly cured, and
people feel cheerful, sleep soundly and wake in good humor.

They also
show evidence of increased mental powers,
along with numerous other overall positive effects
which will be
described in more detail in later sections.

10. Mechanism of Action

Morbid tissues are generally
characterized by oxygen deficiency.

Accumulation of H- radicals tends to destroy cells and tissues which
gradually accumulate to cause disorders which in turn deteriorate in a morbid
condition generated for various reasons. If oxygen could be selectively and
locally, fed to this lesion, oxygen would combine with the accumulated H+
radicals to restore the deteriorated tissues, thereby cutting the vicious circle
of accumulation of deteriorated tissues and disorders, restoring the normal
functions of the tissues. The basis of the theory of
the mechanism of the compound is that germanium takes the form of a ***sesquioxide
.

Oxygen readily
combines with hydrogen,
so it becomes apparent that
hydrogen will strongly bind with the oxygen atoms of the compound, consequently
bringing about a dehydrogenating reaction which is the mechanism by which
germanium eliminates harmful substances
causing disease
in the body.

Consider for a moment the basic fact of
the life process whereby food is burned by the body to give energy, while carbon
dioxide (C02) and hydrogen (H2) are created.

CO2 is discharged from the lungs when
we exhale,
and

H2 combines with oxygen to form water
which is discharged in the urine and sweat
.

As
mentioned previously, hydrogen
(+)
may be referred to as a positive ion, which is as useless to the body
as dust clogging the workings of a machine.
To insure that
the body functions normally, hydrogen must be removed, but for complete
removal a large quantity of oxygen is needed.

The
germanium compound with its strong
dehydrogenating effect takes the place of oxygen in combining with hydrogen to
eliminate the latter from the body.

In fact, all traces of germanium are
discharged from the body through the digestive tract within 20 to 30 hours.

As part of
another experiment, tests were conducted on the effect of the germanium compound
on the respiratory tissues of a group of mice using the Warburg method. Results
obtained showed a remarkable decrease of oxygen consumption in the diaphragm and
liver clear indication that the compound acted as a substitute for oxygen in
combining with hydrogen. By the dehydrogenating
or oxidizing action of the compound, not only hydrogen ions are removed from the
blood, but abnormal proteins and other foreign matter
are also removed.
The oxidizing
effect of the compound thus serves to purify the blood.

11. A
Substitute for Oxygen

The
organic germanium compound increases the oxygen supply in a living body. The
compound leads to the cure of various diseases and produces health sustaining
effects by serving as a substitute for oxygen in combining with hydrogen ions
and other waste substances in the body. In the following experiment, for
example, the germanium compound was given orally to a rat in amounts calculated
at 30 mg per kilogram of its body weight. When the rat was examined 1 1;2 hrs
later, the distribution of germanium in its body was found to be as follows:

Distribution of Organic Germanium in Parts
Per Million –
(Male Wistar Rat 180g receiving 30mg/kg body weight)
lung 22.5 ppm, heart 2.5 ppm,
stomach 188.0 ppm, liver 12.0 ppm,
kidney 15.0 ppm, spleen 27.5 ppm,
testicles 8.0 ppm, urine 90.0 ppm,
small intestine 522.0 ppm, mucous membrane of small
intestine
788.0 ppm, contents of small intestine 507.6 ppm,
caecum and large intestine mucous membrane of caecum and large
intestine 15.5 ppm, contents of caecum and large intestine 21.5 ppm,
cerebral bone 21.5 ppm, blood 43.2 ppm

As is
shown in the table. only 1 1/2 hrs after administration, a large amount of the
compound still remains in the stomach as it has not yet been absorbed. It is
also evident, however, that the germanium content in the blood is still
relatively high.

In the blood, it is believed that
germanium combines mostly with red blood cells a theory which can be deduced
from the fact that red blood cells (-), which are negative
charge carriers
and have properties permitting penetration by negative
ions. have an electrochemical structure closely akin to the germanium
compound.

Thus, it
appears that germanium combines with the red blood cells
together with haemoglobin.
In the ensuing pages of this book I propose
to develop the concept of my organic
germanium compound as a health giving substance rather than a medicine
and through the weight of personal evidence provide a more
complete way of life.

II. Germanium and Health

1. Well
Balanced Diet, Prerequisite to Good Health

As will be seen later. the organic germanium compound can be
regarded without exaggeration as an effective means of combating almost any
disease.

Nonetheless, for assuring its efficacy
and the health of the body,
the following two conditions have to
be met.

One is to keep a well balanced diet in order to maintain the acid
alkali equilibrium of the body fluids.

The other is to relieve stress to keep a stable mental state for
maintaining the equilibrium of the autonomic nervous system.

If any one of these equilibrium is
broken, a morbid change is likely to occur
somewhere in the
body.

The oxygen
needed for the human body is supplied through respiration, and observing the
necessities for the maintenance of human life, the first thought is the need for
oxygen supplied to the body through respiration, while the need for nourishment
in the form of water and food and sleep follow a close second. If oxygen supply to the brain is suspended for more than
three minutes, the brain fails to recover consciousness.

If water intake is suspended for about a week,
dehydration causes death.

If no sleep is obtained for a week, mental disorder
caused by lack of sleep results in complete mental derangement.

Only if
the three foregoing conditions are met, can a healthy person go without food for
one month. With these conditions in mind, it is up to man to choose the proper
type of food. For this reason, it is important to keep a well balanced diet. For
maintaining health or curing a disease, it is of utmost importance to adhere to
a diet that includes food which will keep the pH of the body fluids slightly
alkaline at 7.2 to 7 4. To facilitate a judicious selection, the following
classification points out types of food
that are termed either as acid or alkali forming:

HIGHLY ACID FOODS: egg yolk, cheese, sweets in which white sugar
is used. dried bonito, oyster, and herring roe.

MODERATELY ACID FOODS: ham, bacon, horse meat, chicken, tuna,
pork, white bread, beef, wheat, butter, and eel.

SLIGHTLY ACID FOODS: rice, peanuts, octopus, clams, liver, fried
bean curd, and beer.

SLIGHTLY ALKALINE FOODS: red beans, onions, cabbage, Japanese
radishes, apples, a kind of Chinese cabbage, and bean curd.

MODERATELY ALKALINE FOODS: raisins, soybeans, cucumbers, carrots,
tomatoes, spinach, banana, tangerines, pumpkins, strawberries, honeywort, white
of egg, pickled plums, and lemon.

HIGHLY ALKALINE FOODS: seaweed, grapes, tea;

Acid foods
when absorbed into the body tend to acidify the blood, while alkaline foods reverse this tendency toward
acidosis
. Lemon juice will turn the blue litmus paper red as
a test for it acidity reaction will show, but once it is absorbed into the body,
acts to turn the blood alkaline. Thus, lemon is classified as an alkaline food.
Aside from those who are still growing, people should avoid excessive intake of
animal protein and fats. They would do better to take soybeans and processed
foods thereof, as well as vegetables. Vegetable fats are also better than animal
fats. If people maintain a well balanced diet centered on natural vegetable
foods, they will be able to sustain good health since these increase resistance
against diseases and reinforce natural curing ability should they fall victim to
some ailment. Any diet partial to acid foods like meat and fatty fish meat,
especially to anima] foods, is tantamount to shortening one’s life.

2. Pregnancy

The food
‘fads’ of pregnant women are of interest. My daughter began no longer to care
for fatty foodstuffs or meats, while definitely preferring vegetables, fruit and
picked ume (a Japanese fruit similar to apricot and plum). All these foods are
in the alkali group of foods. In traditional Chinese medicine, acid and salt are
described as the negative and the positive, respectively. The Chinese principle
calls for maintaining equilibrium of the positive and the negative in diet.
Chinese medicine classifies umeboshi in the negative, that is, the alkali group
of foods. As I mentioned earlier, I was struck by the Chinese wisdom that listed
pickled plums as a negative food despite its acidity which tends to mislead
people to think of them as an acid forming food. This change of pattern in diet
during pregnancy conforms to the need of the foetus in the womb of the mother.
Oxygen is the most important substance for the growth of the foetus. If the
mother has acidosis, there is sure to be oxygen deficiency which will adversely
affect the foetus. I find a special providence in the natural] change in the
pattern of likes and dislikes in the diet of women in pregnancy. The oriental
antenatal training of expectant mothers in this connection should be interpreted
in the light of the need for stabilizing their mental state, which keeps a well
balanced physical condition. My daughters took organic germanium daily during
their pregnancy to maintain abundant oxygen supply to the body. Consequently,
they experienced only very slight morning sickness during the first few months
of pregnancy and gave birth to strong, healthy babies in easy deliveries. Thus,
I am endowed with six healthy grandchildren. Many similar cases are found in
letters of appreciation I have received. In one case, an expectant mother was
diagnosed as having leukaemia and had been advised by her doctor to arrange for
an abortion. As she turned to germanium therapy which had an excellent effect on
her leukaemia, she was able to give birth to a fine boy. This is only one of
many examples of the beneficial effect of germanium therapy in pregnancy.
Invariably they have an easy delivery and their babies are healthy and vigorous.
I am sure the tragedy of giving birth to defective infants could be a voided if
all pregnant women would take organic germanium.

3. Birth of Healthy Life

Here is a
case reported in the newspapers. Parents of a premature baby, who lost its
eyesight because of a retinal disorder whilst in an incubator. brought a lawsuit
against the hospital for the damage caused to the child, only to lose the case.
Prevention of retinal disorders in premature babies appears to be possible by
applying the latest technology, but it seems that cases of this nature are not
yet recognized as being attributable to hospital error. Medical journals report
an increasing number of premature births. That the health of prospective mothers
is markedly deteriorating is undeniable when aggravation of environmental
conditions due to food and pollution is taken into account. Imperfect physical conditions of prospective mothers are probably
leading to an increased number of premature births.
In
support of this statement, I would like to point out that pregnant women taking organic germanium all have smooth
deliveries and that not one premature or physically handicapped baby has been
born to such a mother. The reason is very simple. Germanium enriches the body
with oxygen, and as the mother’s womb remains in a wonderfully healthy
condition, the fetus grows unimpeded.
While more about this
matter is presented in another chapter, I would like to introduce the summary of
a report submitted by Dr.Mieko Okazawa who is a member of the Infant Protection
Association.

Report submitted October 15, 1977 Eight
examples of perfectly healthy babies born to women taking organic germanium
during pregnancy Note: Ge stands for organic Germanium.

Case I. As both the eldest and the second daughter were
sickly and the mother herself of weak constitution and as her urine was showing
sugar (+ +) at the beginning of pregnancy, she began to take germanium (Ge) from
the second month of pregnancy. She gave birth to a healthy boy. (She took 500cc
Ge a month.)

Case 2. The woman began
an intake of 200mg/day Ge because of a threatened
abortion at 7 months.
After her condition stabilized, the daily
amount was reduced to 80mg.

Case 3. As all three of her children
contracted German measles early in her fourth pregnancy, the mother began to
take Ge. The intake was 80mg a day. In the eighth month of pregnancy she
contracted influenza accompanied by coughing fits. She therefore was advised to
increase the intake to 400mg to 500mg per day, later returning to 80mg a day
till delivery.

Case 4. The woman suffered from toxaemia
of pregnancy and albumen in her urine while pregnant with her first child. When
the second child was on the way, from the fifth month she began Ge intake until
delivery which was smooth and she gave birth to a healthy baby.

Case 5. The woman was allergic to
medication. She contracted influenza in the fourth month of pregnancy,
accompanied by coughing fits. She began to take Ge only. As she suffered from
coughing fits during the ninth month of pregnancy too, she was administered Ge
injections in addition to oral Ge doses till delivery. She gave birth to a
healthy baby.

Case 6. As the mother was in
her mid thirties by the time she conceived her third child, she began to take
100 mg of Ge per day from the initial period of pregnancy.

Case 7. The woman began to
take 400 mg/day Ge from the ninth month of pregnancy because of albumen (o) in
her urine, and dropsical swelling. While pregnant with her first child, she had
fallen into pregnancy phobia. She received a blood transfusion for profuse
bleeding and experienced a difficult delivery. but this time she had an easy
delivery probably as a result of taking Ge.

Case 8. The woman took Ge
before her pregnancy on account of delicate health and autonomic ataxia. Serious
vomiting, anaemia during the latter part of pregnancy and a rise in blood
pressure prompted her to have additional Ge injections while also orally taking
Ge till delivery which went smoothly.

I cannot
help thinking that premature births and births of physically handicapped
children result from some violation of the workings of nature. Nature fills the
universe with rational equations and steadily flows with time. It should,
therefore, be natural that perfectly normal babies be born. Yet, that this is
not the case probably stems from the existence of something which is not in
accord with the principles of nature. That a life comes into this world is a
profound mystery, originating from the time of conception and developing through
the growth of the fetus over a ] period. What is most needed during this period
is oxygen obtained through the mother’s respiration. If the mother’s blood is
acid, the oxygen carrying capacity of haemoglobin in the red blood cells
markedly declines and this may lead to a failure to supply the interior of the
womb with an adequate amount of oxygen. This creates a dangerous situation.
There are two causes of acidic blood. One is mental instability. The importance
attached to the prospective mother’s mental state since early days in the name
of antenatal education is perfectly correct. The other cause is diet.
Preferences for food change when a woman becomes pregnant, and dislike of acid
forming foods such as meat and fatty foods often develops. This is an admirable
and marvellous example of the working of nature. Nature thus is doing her utmost
to prevent a shortage of oxygen in the mother’s womb, but if the womb becomes
acidic through stress and polluted food- stuffs caused by the unhealthy habits
of modern life, the child is liable to abort, be born prematurely or with
physical defects. It is, therefore, by no means an exaggeration to say that the
use of germanium is absolutely necessary for a pregnant woman to assure the
birth of a healthy child.

4. Reasons for Oxygen Deficit in the Body

Although I
shall refer to the reason for ill health together with the conditions for
treatment of disease on many occasions. perhaps it would be useful to summarize
the causes for an oxygen deficiency in the body at this point since this seems
to be the root of all body disorders.

(i) Though
acidity has long been recognized as a problem, perhaps one reason why ill health
is so rampant is that most people do not bother to find an adequate explanation
as to why this condition is detrimental to health. Although it may sound complicated, the scientific answer is rather
simple. An acid constitution means that the blood contains an excess of positive
hydrogen ions (H + ) which use up the oxygen in a living body by combining with
it to form an hydroxyl group. When an excess of (H + ) accumulates in the body,
there is insufficient oxygen to consume them.
As a
consequence the blood will acidify and an oxygen deficiency will be created. The
problem of oxygen deficiency has also become a controversy in recent years. An
acid constitution should be averted by all means. An acid constitution leads to
an oxygen deficiency which results in various diseases, including cancer.

(ii) The
intake of foods which contain an excess of unsaturated chemical compounds can be
noted as another major cause of oxygen deficiency. Unsaturated compounds have a surplus of molecular “hands” which
combine with oxygen in the body to produce oxonium compounds, thereby depleting
the body’s supply of oxygen
. In an experiment we conducted
with dogs, one of the animals died from cancer induced by means of the above
method. The chemical nature of substance is to move from an unsaturated state.
at which they can establish their existence. In this context, it is important
for those who want to stay healthy to note that natural foods contain the fewest
unsaturated compounds, while these compounds are conspicuously abundant in
refined foods. In my mind, carcinogenic or , cancer producing substances and
unsaturated compounds with their excess of molecular “hands” to use up the
available oxygen in the body are one and the same.

(iii) The
other major cause of oxygen deficiency. v in the body, perhaps that to which we
should pay the most attention, is the mind. A theory of Professor Hans Selye of the University of Montreal, Canada,
is that not only humans but
animals develop an unbalanced secretion of hormones, particularly adrenal
hormones, if subjected to prolonged stress
.
An imbalance hormone secretion will
also lead to acidification of the blood and thereby create a condition for
oxygen deficiency which ultimately, v results in disease. In an experiment we
conducted in our laboratory, v, mice were encased and poked with a stick to
irritate and provoke them. Not surprisingly, upon dissection, it was found that
all had developed stomach ulcers, some of which had haemorrhaged. An examination
of their blood revealed the pH value had dropped by 0.2 on average, clearly
indicating that the blood had become highly acidified With the recent
remarkable progress in biochemistry, many warnings have been issued on the
relationship between health and diet.
Moreover. stress is fast becoming recognized as a major cause of
disease
.
Again, I wish to re-emphasize the necessity of
maintaining a constitution that will not produce an oxygen deficiency. This is a
conclusion reached after several years of laboratory work with the organic
germanium compound and, to date, all the facts have supported it without
exception.

5. Stress

In order
adequately to explain the interrelationship of germanium and health,
particularly as regards the mind, it is necessary to draw together several
fields of knowledge. By examination of some theories from the field of physics
we may note that physics is a science dealing basically with the clarification
of various phenomena which constitute the basis of matter. Human beings, by the
very nature of the fact that they are composed of matter, are also governed by
the theories of the properties of matter as expounded by physics. In terms of
physics, as quantum theory has revealed, a human being is an aggregate of ultra
minute electrically charged particles. y may wonder what all this has to do with
disease. This does so precisely because the physical composition and behavior of
matter is known to accord with the laws of nature, Although you may choose to
agree or disagree with the hypothesis, scientific evidence has indicated it is
important to man in terms of mental and ph, health, to have some basic direction
in life. Professor Selye maintains that disease develops from mental stress.
Stress is “strain,” and may be interpreted in terms of minute electrical
particles which constitute the body. In effect, the occurrence of a disease
means that one portion of the universe’s equation has become incompatible with
the rest. The simplest way to detect stress
(strain) is to measure the electrical potential of the various parts of the
body. Each mass of electrical particles naturally, has its own electrical
potential.
Brain troubles are diagnosed
by brain waves.
The principle involved in this type of examination is to
]locate the affected area of the brain by measuring the electrical potentials at
various points. The same principle applies to the internal
organs. There is an appropriate potential for the stomach, liver. heart,
kidneys, pancreas and other organs. Once affected by disease, the potential of
an organ, the source of which are the electrons, will either increase or
fall.
It is important to note that in the living body, the hydrogen ion, which is the source of an
electrical potential, serves as this electron
As an interesting
side note on the relationship of germanium and electrical potentials, we
conducted an experiment whereby a solution containing the organic germanium
compound was poured into the battery of an automobile which had failed to start
due to battery failure. The immediate result was that the car started
without difficulty.
Furthermore, batteries have been recharged without difficulty in a few minutes
by adding a small quantity of the germanium compound. It is difficult to explain
such phenomena scientifically, but it seems obvious that electrical potentials
have been increased.
The state of a human body, in which no
electrical potentials may be detected, is death.

In recent
years much more time has been devoted to the study of stress in connection with
personality and profession. In this connection some interesting facts have come
to light. First of all, the artist, working in an atmosphere of pure art
apparently is not subject to undue stress. Their blood does not become acid,
whereas the broker class seems always to be under irritation, worrying, and
always in an uneasy state which results in blood acidity. an oxygen deficiency,
and which finally ends in stomach ulcers. I have a friend who is head of the
research laboratory in the National Police Agency. Once I inadvertently heard
him say something that made me slap my knee and nod in agreement. “When a
criminal commits murder in connection with a robbery, he knows that if caught he
faces execution, therefore he invariably looks for a chance to run away and
hide. The police send notices to every city, town, and village office, but on
the average. only about 60% of such culprits are caught. However, strangely
enough. after four or five years, those not apprehended develop some incurable
disease, very often cancer, and die. Along with the doctor’s certificate of
death, a report of the person’s personal history is sent to the local office,
and we know he is on the wanted list of criminals.” The criminal in hiding lives
with fear and a guilty conscience day and night, and his body is under fearful
stress. His body state becomes highly acid, an oxygen deficiency brings on an
incurable disease, and he dies. According to a physician connected with a
prison, newly arrived inmates in general show high blood acidity, but
interestingly, in the monthly physical examinations, they find that those who
repent and become model prisoners lose that acidity. When I make a careful
observation of such facts, I begin to wonder just what is sickness?

6. Elixir of Life

In
the book Tales From a Western Castle by Yasushi lnoue, there is a very
interesting conversation between Genghis Khah and an invited Chinese scholar,
regarding long life. Genghis Khan: “You come from
far off, do you have medicine for long life?” Scholar: “There is a way of
healthful living, there is no medicine.” Genghis Khan: “Then there is really no
medicine for long life?” Scholar. “There is a way of healthful living, there is
no medicine.”

Germanium
regulates the amount of cholesterol] in the blood, and by animal
experimentation, it has been proven that it prevents amyloidosis, the ring
leader in causing the phenomenon of aging. At the 64th Conference of the Japan athological Society held in April
1975.
the results of the following experiment were presented
: “In ICR mice two years old, spontaneous development of amyloidosis was widely
observed in various organs of 12/14 cases, including the kidneys, digestive
organs, liver. spleen, heart and adrenal glands. No relationship of myloidosis
with chronic inflammation was established. Mice of the same strain were used as
an experimental group. These animals were fed organic germanium from five weeks
of age for a period of 22 months. In the 30 mglkg  administration groups.
amyloidosis was induced in 3!6 cases. On the other hand, in the 300 mglkg
administration groups, 12/14 cases presented no sign of its development.”
Perusal of this report reveals its amazing significance.

Amyloidosis,
also known as amyloid degeneration. as any medical encyclopaedia will tell you,
is a disease which occurs when amyloid degeneration, appears in the
body.
In plain words, it is the principal cause of aging. Since
organic germanium completely inhibits the
development of amyloidosis, it would be no exaggeration to call organic
germanium an “elixir of life.”

The
impotence of modern medicine against incurable diseases is simply
flagrant. The root of impotence lies in the absence of
philosophical background in modern medicine.
As a result. it
easily falls into an attitude of local or microscopic research; the methods of
treatment become symptomatic. For this reason, when cure of cancer or Behcet’s
disease, for example. by prescription of organic germanium compound is reported.
the doctors laugh me off saying, “Are you a magician?” My reply is, “No, on the contrary. the god cast a spell on me to
synthesize organic germanium compound from elemental germanium and to use it to
treat incurable disease:
the magic is in the hand of
the god.”

III.
Germanium in the Treatment of Disease in General

1. Methods of Treatment at the
Clinic

What
distinguishes the germanium clinic from other
clinics and hospitals is its methods of treatment. our Clinic is located in a
suburb of Tokyo, where a physician and three other internists work for internal
medicine, internal neurology and physiotherapy
.
In addition,
consultations are conducted for geriatrics and general health. Such demarcations
of clinical treatment are not essential, but are of some convenience and thus
are retained even in our clinic. I am convinced that only the patient has the ***power to heal himself through his own
efforts, while the doctor merely passes on to the patient his acquired knowledge
and the technicalities pertaining to the cure.
Therefore, I
took pains to stress this point not only to the doctors, but also to the
pharmacists and nurses. The ***doctors in our
clinic thus take ample time for consultations, ***determining the mental attitude of the patients, talking
with them about ways and means to overcome their disease,

and collaborating with them to find a method of cure. The use of conventional
pharmaceuticals hitherto employed in hospitals has been minimized, while the
mainstay of treatment has been the administration of germanium. In my view,
based on Oriental medicine, any disease is
basically due to the constitutional characteristics of the
patient
. Of the constitutional characteristics, the
blood plays the principal
role
. The cause of disease probably lies in oxygen
deficiency of the body, for the supply of oxygen
throughout the body depends on the haemoglobin in the blood;

besides, antibodies that grapple with the pathogenic bacteria also exist in the
blood. For this reason, we should aim at the blood
as a means to cure or prevent disease.
Now, hydrogen of positive ions may be regarded as dust in the
blood.
This is generated with carbon dioxide after the
combustion of food taken into the body system for energy. Carbon dioxide is
exhaled. The hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to become water excreted in the
form of urine and sweat. An acid blood means an excess of hydrogen ions in the
blood, which deprives the blood of large quantities of oxygen, causing oxygen
deficiency in the body system. For this reason, acidosis or acid blood is considered the very cause of
various diseases.
The two important causes of acidosis are food
and mental stress. No genuine recovery can be obtained unless these important
factors are kept in mind in consultation and treatment. Therefore, the
treatments in our clinic have as their integral parts dietary guidance and
efforts to remove the stress of the patient. However When our clinic was opened,
few patients visited us. However, with the growing achievements through our
constant efforts, which have been conveyed to the public by word of mouth. a
considerable number of visitors now come to our clinic. I am proud that there
has not been a single complaint regarding treatment by germanium alone by those
treated who now total several thousands. All those who have cured themselves of
their disease are grateful for our method of treatment and continue to take
germanium for the maintenance of health.

2. Excerpt
from the Director’s File of the Clinic By Dr. Shigeru
Makiuchi

Many
of the patients visiting the organic germanium clinic have undergone length. v
treatment at university hospitals or national, public or private hospitals,
without experiencing any improvement in their condition. In general. they are
people who have heard of germanium from friends or relatives: who themselves
have experienced cures or remissions, or at least an improvement in their
respective diseases by the intake of organic germanium. Gradually, the effects
of the organic germanium, sometimes almost bordering on the miraculous, are
becoming widely known and recognized, and the number of doctors favoring an
“organic germanium treatment” has increased throughout Japan. Accordingly, the
number of patients calling on the Organic
Germanium Clinic
by recommendation of such doctors
constantly increases. Unfortunately, however, not a few patients have distorted
ideas about this compound. Hence, I wish to clarify
some points as a doctor at the organic germanium clinic. To begin with. organic
germanium is now available in different
preparations
to facilitate its administration in various disorders
: (I ) in capsules,

(2) in granules packed in alluvial,

(3) in injection solution (for
hypodermic, intramuscular and intravenous injection),

(4) in suppositories,

(5) in cream form,

(6) in solution contained in vials as a
drip for eye, ear and nose.

Regarding
the toxicity of organic  germanium, the results of
***tests have shown organic germanium to be non-toxic and completely harmless.
These tests on acute and subacute toxicity, deformity and
accumulation were carried out by a professor and his research staff at the
laboratory of a renowned university and by an authoritative research institute
entrusted to undertake this task. A large number of patients entertain erroneous
ideas with regard to the side effects of organic germanium. While it has been
prescribed by many doctors to a large number of patients during the last eight
years as a test treatment agent, no side effects have been observed either
clinically or biochemical. When viewed from the patients’ viewpoint, however.
symptoms that may be suspected as being side effects, do appear. Such symptoms
are especially liable to appear in patients with liver and kidney disorders, in
allergic people, in those who are susceptible to bronchial asthma and hives and
in patients suffering from stomach and intestinal disorders, constipation,
chronic articular rheumatism and gout.

This is
one of the characteristic actions of organic germanium.

Toxic elements, products of decomposition,
waste matter and, foreign matter generated in the body, which are injurious to
health or which obstruct disease curing processes, are
discharged
with the, urine, faeces and also through the pores of the
skin.

In such
cases, the volume of urine may increase, the faeces
may become softer and even watery and the frequency of discharge may increase to
several times the usual amount.
Unlike the effects generally
known as diarrhoea, however, no abdominal pains accompany this process.
Furthermore, when such matters are discharged through the skin by insensible
perspiration, rash accompanied by itching appears. This symptom differs
according to constitution, age, diet, duration of the disorder, existing
condition of disorder and the dosage of organic germanium. Such phenomena are
observed more frequently in patients with larger amounts of internal toxic
elements. However, since these are the effects of organic germanium, the
symptoms disappear within three days to two weeks when administration is in
progress or when the dosage is controlled under instruction of the, doctor in
charge. Having overcome these effects, the patient will feel fine. For example,
when a patient suffering from gout or chronic arthritis takes organic germanium,
the pain may intensify when the pain causing substance (uric acid in the case of
gout) is removed from the joint, but when administration is continued, the pain
will be reduced within a few days to a few weeks. If treatment is suspended
because of the pain the administration up to this point will become meaningless.
People with all sorts of ailments visit the organic Germanium Clinic.

Thus, data on countless cases accumulate, a few of which, should
be cited:

Atopic dermatitis
(8-year-old boy, weighing 21 kg) : Typical symptoms appeared all
over his body a few months after birth. He was examined by specialists at
different hospitals, underwent many sorts of treatment, including adrenocortical
steroid treatment, without any effect. As later severe itching occurred, he was
continually scratching himself. This had given rise to a complication in the
form of acute inflammation and rash, swellings, local feverishness and pain
became prominent. Organic germanium was prescribed four times a day after each
meal and before going to bed at the rate of
20 mg per 1 kg body weight.
In addition, germanium cream was
rubbed on the affected areas once immediately after rising in the morning and
once before retiring at night. After two months of treatment his condition
improved around the elbows and knees, and he stopped scratching himself.
Administration of germanium is being continued.

Retrobulbar neuritis (state of total
blindness) (32-year-old woman, weighing 50 kg)
: Her eyesight
began to decline about a year ago, and gradually she became almost totally blind
so that she could not distinguish between day and night. She underwent treatment
at well known ophthalmic hospitals without any effect. The patient accompanied
by her father was told at the Organic Germanium Clinic that it was doubtful
whether any effect could be expected, since all the physicians attending her had
given up the idea of Cure. On the insistence of father and daughter, who refused
to give up, treatment was started orally twice a day, once after breakfast and
once after supper, at the rate of 40 mg per I kg
body weight (***Ex: 50kg x 40 = 2,000 mg -2x a day).
In
addition, she was told to use one drop of the eye lotion eight times and more
per day. The result was that the patient became able to distinguish between day
and night within one month. Her visual acuity improved to 0.1. in two months, to
0.4 in three months and after six months to 1.0. Needless to say, the patient
and her family were delighted, saying the improvement was miraculous.

Sub acute myelo-optico-neuropathy
(SMON)
(50-year-old woman, weighing 48 kg): Acute sensory
impediment appeared about 15 years ago, and because of a severe motor impediment
in both lower legs, she began to experience difficulty in standing upright,
walking becoming impossible. Obstruction of visual acuity gradually increased,
her left eye becoming virtually blind. She had to use a wheelchair when she came
for examination.  The sensory impediment in her lower legs was deep, muscular
atrophy and decline of muscular strength became conspicuous and she showed the
syndrome of the pyramidal tract. She also experienced urinary incontinence
occasionally. On instruction, she twice daily took organic germanium capsules,
once after breakfast and once after supper, at the rate of
40 mg per 1 kg body weight.
In addition, she was told to use germanium
eye drops five times or more daily. She started to walk again with the aid of
crutches in about two months. When she visited the clinic three months later,
she was able to walk with only the help of a stick.

Case of Nephrosis Syndrome (80-year-old man, weighing- 9
55 kg):
Edema appeared in the lower legs about a year ago, and
he was treated at a public hospital for several months with adrenocortical
steroid preparation, immunization depressors and others. but the edema grew
worse expanding up to the abdomen and chest. It ultimately became an anasarca.
Lasic and other diuretics were used, but the edema persisted. When he was
brought to the Organic Germanium Clinic he was unable to walk. Examination
showed his total serum protein content to be 5.8 g/dl, serum albumen content 2.7
g/dl, total cholesterol value 310 mg/dl and the urea

nitrogen
content 24 mg/dl (others omitted). As the 24 hour value of urine protein could
not be measured, the first early morning discharge was measured and showed
300-500 mg/dl. Blood pressure was 190- 120. Organic germanium in capsules was prescribed three times daily to
be taken after each meal,
in a dosage of 30 mg per 1 kg body
weight. However, as the decline in edema was too slow even after two weeks, the
dosage was increased to 40 mg per 1 kg body weight, with the same frequency of
administration. As a result, the edema began to disappear first from the chest
and then from the abdomen, and three weeks later it was only apparent in the
lower part of the legs. His weight decreased to 51 kg, and after another two
weeks the edema in both legs disappeared completely, while his weight decreased
to 49 kg. Examination of the patient at this stage showed a total serum protein
content of 6. I g/dl, serum albumen content of 4.2 gg/dl and urea nitrogen
content of 21 mg/dl. The blood pressure was found to be normal. In addition to
administration of germanium, the patient remains under observation as to his
daily habits and diet.

Case of Cerebellar Degeneration
(25-year-old woman, weighing 48 kg):
Difficulty in walking and
speech impediment gradually developed about three years ago until she was no
longer able to walk. Furthermore, she lost the ability to write. She had
nystagmus, tinnitus and trembling limbs. Over a period of eight months she went
from one specialist to another, to be told at last that she suffered from
cerebellar degeneration. However, as the cause for this condition remained
unclear she was told that there was no way to help her. When she at last came to
our clinic, carried by her father and brother, she was a virtual cripple.
Organic germanium was prescribed orally at a dosage of 40 mg per 1 kg body
weight, to be taken twice daily before breakfast and before supper. Within one
month her speech impediment gradually declined and after five months her writing
impediment, nystagmus and trembling of the limbs decreased. After ten months not
only did her speech and writing impediments further decline, but she became
capable of rising on her own and was even able to walk a short distance.
Tinnitus and trembling had completely disappeared. She continues germanium
intake.

Case of Hepatoma (56-year-old man, weighing 66
kg):
Symptoms such as loss of appetite, loss of weight, general
weariness and abdominal inflation began to appear from early June, 1977. He went
for treatment at a hospital, but examination revealed liver cancer which was
certified by liver puncture. liver scientigraphy, etc. He came to the Organic
Germanium Clinic by recommendation of the hospital doctor in charge of his case.
The result of the examination was a clear case of cancer of the liver and
spleen, which could be felt at a distance of about six fingers from the costal
bow. Abdominal dropsy and anaemia were observed, but not jaundice. Organic
germanium, at 35 mg per I kg body weight, was prescribed three times daily
before each meal. On August 3, the patient carried a letter from his attending
physician requesting the doctor at the Organic Germanium Clinic to give the
patient a daily intra-venous drip injection adding 5 % glucose to the germanium
solution. In addition to this daily intravenous injection (10 ml injection
solution containing 200 mg organic germanium), germanium in capsules in a dosage
of 60 mg per I kg body weight was prescribed to be taken three times daily
before each meal. In addition, one suppository a day was used after evacuation.
From September 2, intravenous injection solution was increased to 320 mg per
day. According to a report from the doctor in charge, the patient had been
making good progress, when he caught a cold in mid November accompanied by
fever. In early December an estimated 2,500 ml of abdominal dropsy was observed.
Under these circumstances the daily injections were increased to 600 mg from
December 15, accompanied by an oral intake and the use of suppositories in the
same amount as before. When the patient was again hospitalized on January 13,
1978, abdominal dropsy had disappeared and neither the liver tumor nor the
spleen tumor could be tactically perceived. Examination on March 28 showed his
condition to be almost normal. The doctor in charge conceded “no medicine that
treats cancer so effectively has yet been developed. Moreover, the absence of
side effects is amazing. I am now wondering if it really has been cancer.” The
followings are the results of the biochemical serum tests ( excerpt ):

3. Cases Taken from Clinic Records

The
following examples are selected from the case histories recorded at the Clinic
to illustrate the efficacy of the organic
germanium on diseases generally considered incurable.

Case I (Behcet’s 42 years old, male,
farmer)
: The patient had been suffering for about five months
from failing eyesight and difficulty in walking when he was admitted to a public
hospital, where he was diagnosed as having Behcet’s disease. The treatment at
the hospital did not bring relief, and his condition steadily deteriorated. He
had to be helped by two persons when he was brought to our clinic in a desperate
condition. We had had several previous cases of that disease which could be
healed by the administration of massive doses of germanium. The doctor sent him
home with a 20 day supply, instructing him to take 1.5 g daily. He was also
given careful instructions emphasizing the importance of a correct diet and
mental attitude. Ten days later he telephoned the clinic, reporting that his
eyesight had begun to return and that his general condition has been improving
daily. On the 20th day he came for an additional supply of the germanium
compound. He was a completely different person. There are three other cases of
Behcet’s disease where the compound showed a marked, or at least some efficacy.

Case 2 (Hepatic dysfunction, male, 30
years old)
. The organic germanium has a remarkable efficacy on
liver troubles as shown in the subjoined figure. The patient had been suffering
for more than three years from serum hepatitis caused by blood transfusion. He
was constantly returning to hospitals. The ineffective treatment caused severe
depression. Treatment with the organic germanium has completely cured his
ailment as attested by a doctor recently, although it took 2 years. As shown in
the thin horizontal line in the figure, the normal values of GOT and GPT are
within 30 units (10 to 40 units for GOT). In S’s case, these values rose in May,
1972 despite the treatment with germanium, probably due to the fatigue caused by
the transfer of his place of work. The percentage of recovery among
patients with cirrhosis when treated by
administering germanium is considerable.
This is particularly
noteworthy in view of the fact that this disease is regarded as one of the most
difficult hepatic troubles to cure. Let us note here that more than 10 patients
with cirrhosis have already escaped death through our germanium therapy.

4. Two
Examples Using Organic Germanium

(i) Apoplexy. One day an
elderly man about my age who lived just behind me, was suddenly stricken with
apoplexy and was unconscious. Immediately a physician practicing in the
neighborhood was called but since there was no way for him to administer oxygen,
he could only stand there with his arms folded. The man’s son came running to me
for help, and I gave him a solution of my germanium and showed him how to give
it by mouth or through a tube inserted in the nostril. After a few hours the man
regained consciousness and was able to talk. The next day he could get up and go
to the bathroom by himself. To every one’s amusement, that very day the same
physician saw him and cried out. “It’s a ghost.” In those days I told everyone
that in case a person suffered a stroke of apoplexy or had softening of the
brain, he should be given my germanium within six hours by mouth if possible or
through a tube in the nose. By this means two firemen were saved from carbon
monoxide poisoning just short of death. A construction worker at the point of
asphyxiation was also restored to life. Whenever things like this happen, the
doctors are amazed and wonder if 1 am not using some kind of magic. Because of
all these things, I urge old men with a fear of apoplexy always to carry
germanium on them when they go out.

(ii) Raynaud’s Disease.
One day I had a visit from a lady who once was a popular movie star and is now
active as an instructress of traditional Japanese dance. The lady began telling
me of the severe pains in her fingers and toes she had been experiencing for
quite some time. She had been consulting a number of physicians who invariable
told her that a cure could hardly be achieved. Hearing that her illness was
diagnosed as Raynaud’s Disease, I could understand the physicians’ reactions,
for with this disease limbs get befallen by gangrene and in its advanced stage it requires the
amputation of the affected limb. Fortunately I could tell her that there had
already been 4 patients in our Clinic with this particular disease who could be
cured with germanium in a relatively short time.
I followed up
this information by offering her a water solution of germanium in a whisky glass
while explaining that germanium increases the oxygen supply to the body which
would help to cure the disease. Suddenly I found myself being eyed very angrily
by that lady who insisted that what I had just given her to drink was nothing
but an alcoholic drink. In spite of my refutation and assurance that it was
germanium, she insisted that it must have been alcohol, for she had begun to
feel warm all over just as would be the case when she would have had some
liquor. 1 replied “That is only an evidence that germanium has already started
showing its effect. I am only surprised at the surprisingly quick response.”
Only a few minutes after this incident she suddenly exclaimed “Look at my hands,
Dr. Asai! They have turned pink. While sitting opposite her it was the color of
her hands that first caught my eye which were of wax like paleness. Now the
overall feeling of warmth and well-being seemed to have spilled over into her
hands, for they showed a very intensive pink and one had difficulty thinking of
them as belonging to the same person who just a short time ago had these sickly
pale hands. Another surprise was in store for us. for when she rose to leave she
had no difficulty in walking and she insisted that the pains in her feet were
gone and she actually refused the help of her two attendants who had accompanied
her to my house. Ten days later she related how she had enjoyed a walk with her
husband. That stroll was the first after a long period of invalidity. Her
happiness showed also in her voice which sounded extremely youthful.

5. Efficacy on Eye Diseases

I
sometimes am reminded of the blind patients that often came to my office. There
were diseases of the retinal blood vessels, such as glaucoma, black cataracts,
detached retinas, inflammation of the retina and optic nerves, and without
exaggeration, I can say that it was amazing how effective germanium had been. 1
often witnessed scenes where patients wept as they cried out, “Now I can see .”
Those who could not see would invariably say, ”If 1 could only see again,
Doctor, I would give anything. If it were money I would even go into debt to pay
for it. I cannot understand the psychology of people who know the joy of seeing,
and yet do evil things and are greedy. There can be no greater happiness in the
world than being able to see. . .: During the International Angiological Congress, I met a professor of
ophthalmology at the State Medical College of Rio de Janeiro
. He
wrote that using the germanium compound on a patient virtually blind with
amaurosis yielded amazingly good results, and that the patient was well on the
road to recovery. It had already been verified that germanium rejuvenates
retinal vessels, and is therefore effective in treating glaucoma and amaurosis.
His letter has added new evidence of its efficacy.

6. Efficacy on Hypertension

Extensive
experiments on animals and clinical tests have demonstrated repeatedly that
organic germanium has excellent efficacy on hypertension and cardiac disorders.
Organic germanium compound was administered to a rat with induced hypertension
and its blood pressure dropped to normal level. Moreover, when administration
was continued, this did not cause a further drop in the blood pressure as would
be the case with depressants. On dissection a marked difference was observed
between the heart of the rat to which the compound was administered and that of
the control rat. The heart of the rat to which germanium was administered
revealed no morbid distention, while its surface was red, glossy and live in
appearance. The heart of the control rat was generally blisterous and a dirty
gray color. Hypertension is one of the most common and troublesome diseases that
beset us today. Organic germanium may be regarded as an excellent agent for
treating this disease because of its efficacy on the disease and lack of such
side effects as those found using existing depressants. In July 1972, I
participated in the International Angiological Congress held in Rio de Janeiro
and read a short paper reporting the remarkable efficacy of the organic
germanium compound on hypertension. During the meeting I was appalled to learn
that no remedy without any side effect had been found for hypertension. One
German doctor explained to me, “Hypertensive patients are likely to die at any
moment, it is as if they were carrying a live bomb in their body. Therefore,
they use depressants despite their harmful side effects because they think liver
or heart troubles caused by the side effects are still preferable to succumbing
completely.” This really shocks me. Nevertheless, such a logic is accepted in
modern medicine because modern medicine primarily attempts to make symptomatic
treatments. ”I have heard,” I told my audience, .’that if one takes a
depressant too often, this will do more harm than good because depressants lower
the blood pressure excessively, aside from their other ill effects. In striking
contrast, an overdose of the germanium compound will produce no such harmful
effect. It will lower the blood pressure to the normal level, but never below
that level. On the other hand, when it is used on a case of hypotonia, it will
raise the blood pressure to the normal level.” The reaction of my audience was
that of disbelief. but it only strengthened my conviction that at present the
germanium compound is the only remedy for hypertension.

7. Effect of Germanium on Glands

Germanium
has a beneficial effect on glands in general; a pathologist friend reported that
all mice to which the germanium compound was administered had an increased
weight of their secretory glands, (endocrine organs), especially the adrenal and
thyroid glands. They became a reddish color. indicating blood viscosity had
decreased, thus facilitating blood flow. As for rejuvenation of secretory glands
in humans, there are a number of cases on record of 50 and 60-year-old women
long into their menopause, resuming menstruation. Several others spoke of relief
from pains and anxieties normally accompanying climacteric disorders. Numerous
cases of marked improvement or recovery from uterine cancer are on record at the
clinic, including uterine myoma, breast cancer, and bladder cancer among others.
Cancers in the reproductive organs have been medically determined to be due to
disorders of the adrenal hormones. and the most widely practiced method of
treating cancer of the prostate gland is the administration of female sex
hormones. while adrenal glands are removed in treating breast cancer. One day I
went to the clinic and found the whole staff holding their sides in fits of
laughter. This began after a woman past 50 had come in and told them the
following story. “My abdomen ached so I went to the hospital for an examination.
and was told that I had a myoma as big as a fist in my uterus and would have to
have surgery. I had to wait ten days for a bed, and thinking to increase my body
strength, I began taking copious amounts of germanium. After ten days I went
back to the hospital where surgery was scheduled for the next day. The following
day I was prepared for surgery and taken to the operation room. There the doctor
made a final examination but the tumor he had declared to be as big as a fist
could not be found. The doctor was sure that they had brought in the wrong
patient, but his check-up proved that I was the one all right. So I just got
down off the surgical table, leaving the doctor with a very puzzled face.”
Administration of the germanium compound in advance will restore these organs to
a state of health. preventing the occurrence of such disorders.

An old man
of 75 years was suffering from an enlarged prostate gland. The doctors at a
university hospital repeatedly urged him to have surgery, but he continued to
refuse since his health in general had been fundamentally sound. His condition
worsened until finally surgery could not be delayed. The old man recalled that
two years before he had visited me, and remembered my germanium. He wrote from
Kyoto and asked if germanium might be effective with his prostate problem. I
wrote that if he would take 800 milligrams of germanium every day he would not
have to have surgery, and sent him a supply by special delivery. With a cheerful
voice he told me that it was no longer necessary for him to have a tube inserted
in order to pass urine. Being able to urinate freely as of old was to him the
best thing ever. “Thank you,” “thank you.” he cried, and I could imagine him
bowing repeatedly before the phone, as he expressed his great joy. A week later
the doctor said he was completely healed and needed no operation. Germanium
seems to rejuvenate the adrenal glands of the internal secretion organs.

8. Experience with Organic Germanium: Dr. Takahiro Tanaka

Dr.
Takahiro Tanaka (Chofu Hospital) who has been using the organic germanium
compound for treating his patients reports: “Before attempting to use a new
substance for therapeutic purposes, r always try it myself first to determine
its efficacy and side effects. For testing the organic germanium compound, I
took from a 500 ml water solution containing one gram of organic germanium a
daily dose of 20 ml (equivalent to 80 mg of organic germanium), divided in two
portions, one in the morning and the other in the evening, avoiding simultaneous
intake of any other drug. I was then nearly 60 years old, and had complaints of
general languor, enervation, a heavy feeling in the head, and a pain in the
prostate gland. The intake of the germanium compound had the
following results:

(1) Within
one or two days after beginning the intake of organic germanium, languor and the
heaviness in the head disappeared and I began to feel full of vigor.

(2) I
began to have an erection on waking in the morning and my sexual appetite
returned.

(3) The
pain in the prostate gland was alleviated and eventually disappeared.

(4) I
began to have regular stools in heavy quantity every morning and lost nearly 10
kg of weight over two months to a standard weight level.

(5) I
slept soundly and required less sleep.

(6)
Complexion improved and the chilly sensation in the limbs disappeared.

(7) Small,
red itching eruptions appeared dispersed on the skin of the head and the back. A
marked rejuvenating effect was observed. The itching eruptions described in (7)
were the only side effect, which subsequently was noticed in 2 to 3 per cent of
study cases, but was invariably transient.

On the
strength or these findings, I used organic germanium for treating cases of
cancer, including post-operative patients, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy
(brain haemorrhage, thrombosis, softening of the brain), sequela of cerebral
apoplexy, climacteric disorders, heart troubles (angina pectoris), stomach
ulcer, depression. epilepsy, senile mental diseases, chronic rheumatism and
Raynaud’s disease. Except for stomach ulcer, organic germanium showed a marked
or some degree of efficacy in almost all cases.

NOTABLE CASES TREATED WITH GERMANIUM

Forpost-operative treatment of cancer (female. 6l years old): A thumb
sized malignant tumor was discovered in the right cervical region 15 years ago,
and was removed subsequently. Three years after this excision, the patient
underwent an operation for removing a gland cancer on her left breast, followed
a month later by a similar operation on the right breast. Another malignant
tumor was found again on the right cervical section. which was removed. Soft
tissues and lymphatic glands around the cervical tumor could not be removed.
Radiation treatment and anticancer agents were not used. A daily dose of 800 mg
of organic germanium was administered. Over three years since then there has
been no sign of recurrence. The cervical tumor was histologically diagnosed as a
gland cancer which appeared to be a Lymphatic metastasis, but no primary lesion
was observed. Although the case history had an excision of cancerous tissues in
the same cervical area 13 years ago, which leads me to I suspect a latent slow
developing malignant tumor, no recurrence has actually developed subsequently.
Arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy and sequela to apoplexy: I am convinced of
the efficacy of the organic germanium compound in these diseases in shortening
the time required for recovery. In some cases, however, concurrent
administration of cytochrome and other agents proven to be effective made it
impossible to attribute the efficacy solely to organic germanium. Heart diseases
including myocardial infarction: The time needed for recovery was shortened
through treatment with organic germanium. Case C (66 years old) suffered from
sclerotic heart disease for which there is no effective medication, symptoms
being pain in the chest, bradycardia, and slow pulse. On administration of the
organic germanium compound the patient soon felt relief from the chest pains,
and although he had difficulty- in walking. he recovered enough to be able to
ascend a slope without frequent rests. Organic germanium proved effective also
on angina pectoris. Its administration to a case where corneal dilators showed
little efficacy brought relief within a couple of days, reducing the frequency
of attacks which were two or three times a day to almost nil. In another case of
angina pectoris, attacks recurred upon ceasing the administration of the organic
germanium compound. A case of Raynaud’s disease (male, 45 years old). The
patient had his fourth toe amputated at a hospital. A black gangrene developed
at the amputated part, while the third and fifth toe were pale due to poor blood
circulation. The black gangrene increased despite the administration of 400 mg
of methyl carbamate and peripheral blood vessel dilators. Therefore, 80 mg of
organic germanium compound was given. Three days later, the gangrene was
markedly reduced in size and the pale toes had turned rosy with good blood
circulation, showing signs of gradual recovery. After a month, the patient began
drinking and smoking again. The dosage was not increased. Probably this
negligence caused aggravation of the gangrene and the lower leg was amputated.
It is to be noted, however, that before the gangrene became worse, the
administration of organic germanium showed a remarkable efficacy in improving
the symptoms. A case of hypertension, stomach ulcer and arteriosclerosis (male,
72 years old): The patient was admitted to the hospital with many diseases. A
thumb size niche was found in the angular part of the stomach, from which
copious bleeding occurred. A severe case of anaemia ensued, which at one time
was measured to be 3 per cent in haemoglobin concentration by Shal’s method,
while the red blood cell count showed 1, 700,000. Transfusion of blood and other
fluids, and administration of various hemostatics performed daily failed to
bring about any relief. If more than 50 ml of blood was transfused, the excess
blood would be discharged with urine. Therefore, blood transfusion was limited
to 30 mi, which left the patient in the worst possible condition. In addition to
blood transfusion, 40 mg of royal jelly was injected every other day. This
treatment resulted gradually in a slight improvement. The patient unfortunately
suffered a great mental shock by a conflict in his family, causing a senile
mental disorder in the patient who in the height of confusion went so far as to
throw his faeces around. Then, 80 mg of organic germanium compound was given to
him. When examined by X-ray fluoroscopy, the large niche had disappeared and the
stomach ulcer had nearly healed leaving a scar.. On the 10th day of
administration of the organic germanium compound, the patient suddenly recovered
from his state of confusion.

9. Experience with Organic Germanium. Dr. Okazawa

By Dr.
Mieko Okazawa, Ooka Clinic of the infant Protection Association, Social Welfare
Corporation. When we see people with bodies no different from ours fall ill time
and again, we cannot help uttering words like “you are so frail”. We utter “so
frail” with a deep sigh, yet we are not sure on what basis we distinguish
between “frailty” and “robustness.” Such is the discordant mental state with
which we challenge diseases. As a paediatrician, one often feels like
criticizing obstetricians and gynaecologists, the doctors who handle the cases
prior to the paediatrician, for not doing this or that. The body that develops,
for instance, cholecystitis is more easily susceptible to cystitis, pyelitis and
chalazion of the eyelid. Such a person is subject to constitutional diseases of
one type or another without any conscious action. A person with such a “body” is
at a disadvantage throughout his life. A person with a constitution subjected to
repeated illnesses, a person handicapped by such a poor body or a person with a
so called “allergic constitution ” ultimately falls victim to some obstinate
disease of unknown cause. When one comes face to face with such a person, one
feels the urge to help him, but the greater the urge the more one feels the
importance of keeping the body of the mother in the best possible condition
prior to the birth of that person. This is a very natural hope requiring no
urging by a woman doctor like myself, and it was organic germanium and its
properties that have fulfilled this hope. In the world of nature where
amphoteric ions are at work, the action of germanium borders on the
miraculous.

Anyone who hears of organic germanium for the first
time associates it with its inorganic form, a nonmetal, thus causing needless
concern.
lt is not enough that it does not accumulate in the
body; if coming into contact with the dreaded “cation ” of heavy metal
accumulated in the body, its “anions” are said to combine easily with the former
and discharge will take place in the form of urine and faeces. In this respect,
the research work of Dr. Asai leaves no doubt as to its authenticity. As to the
strong action of organic germanium, some specialists suggest the presence of
some invigorating element other than oxygen, but the fact that it does
invigorate, may mean that anion oxygen indispensable to internal organs in
itself is more than sufficient for human vitality. When I personally came across
organic germanium, I felt that this was what I had been looking for in my work
as a physician whose aim it is to help people overcome the afflictions with
which they are cursed. I still remember vividly the emotional impact this
realization had on me; successive experiences were proof that my initial
impression had been right. People who have resorted to the intake of large doses
of organic germanium or who made long-range use of small amounts in order to
improve the condition of their internal organs, find their formerly pasty
colored skin turn to a healthy complexion. Expressions of agony on their faces
disappear. In children, their faces brighten and their eyes regain their
sparkle; the faces of adults become serene, their hope for recovery returning.
As to aged persons. the odor peculiar to the aged, stemming from poor
metabolism, disappears. People will tell me with wonder among other experiences
the disappearance of warts, the outgrowing of corns and splinters embedded in
the skin, healing of eczema’s and healing of burns without scars with little of
the accompanying pains resulting from those burns, or of early subsiding of
herpes. While this shows the effectiveness of organic germanium in minor
ailments, later descriptions will deal with its effectiveness in much more
severe and obstinate diseases. If people experience only small effects, if any,
this only goes to show that their condition is worse than thought, thus an
increase of the prescribed dosage is required. Where the body’ cells lack
oxygen, so indispensable to life, a gradual decline in bodily functions is
inevitable and lastly the fire of life will be extinguished. This is my personal
opinion, but it seems that forces working towards the improvement of health and
forces working towards an aggravation of physical conditions are in constant
struggle within our bodies, and the condition improves or worsens depending on
which of the forces gains the upper hand. What is commonly applicable to all
cases is that prescription of large doses of organic germanium immediately after
a definite diagnosis brings wonderful results.

Nothing,
no miracle drug nor mysterious recipe, prescribed in haste after the condition
deteriorates will bring the expected results, if the envigorating capacity of
oxygen within the body is lost. Being cured of a severe disease should not lead
the patient to overestimate his regained strength. the convalescence period
might range up to a year or more. Contraction of a disease difficult to cure
means that forces that work towards an aggravation of that condition are much
stronger than those working towards recovery. To prevent worsening of the
condition, or rather to prevent a return of the disease, care should be taken to
continue the prescription although at a reduced dosage, while efforts should not
be overlooked to maintain the normal potential within the body. A phenomenon
that occasionally bothers patients who are prescribed organic germanium could
best be explained as a cure reaction (deceptive phenomenon in Chinese medical
herb therapy) which causes a certain condition to become worse. This, however,
should not cause additional anxiety but rather be judged as a sign that the
treatment is beginning to have an effect. In such cases it is necessary to
increase the dosage for a certain period (between 7 to 14 days) in order to
overcome this phenomenon. The larger the dosage, the quicker will be the
breakthrough. For instance, in the case of articular rheumatism, the hips and
the knee joints become so painful about the 7th day after beginning the
administration of large doses that the patient will be unable to leave his bed.
The phenomenon will be the more severe, the worse the condition of the patient.
However, when the dosage is increased when the phenomenon occurs, the patient
will be free of acute pain within about three days, and it will not be long
until he can walk again. After passing through this period, the continued intake
of a reduced dosage will lead to gradual improvement, with an occasional return
of the cure reaction in a lighter from, a process which I like to call “shedding
of the disease.” In the case of stomach ulcer, hematemesis or melena may take
place at some stage after beginning administration, but as this is a cure
reaction, a breakthrough can be made by increasing the dosage; this also applies
to cases of piles.

This phenomenon of cure reaction, therefore, should be
taken as a sign of efficacy.
This is the beginning of a chance
for cure, and it is most inadvisable to suspend administration by mistaking the
condition for a sign of aggravation. This is the most important junction, and
good mutual understanding between the doctor trying to cure and the patient
wanting to be cured is essential. In conclusion, I shall cite various examples
of clinical treatment I have given. Case of Cerebral Thrombosis (female, 78
years old) : She had been suffering from headaches and a sensation that her
shoulders and neck were in a vice, a condition in cerebral thrombosis. A month
after prescription of organic germanium both the oppressive feeling around the
neck, and the headache disappeared completely. The dosage was reduced
subsequently, and she now, after nine months, leads a normal life. Cases of
Hardness of Hearing (females, 85 years old and 70 years old) : The first case
had had trouble in hearing for twenty years, but six months after prescription
of germanium, she was able to hear the ticking of a wrist watch. Now she can
lead a normal life without the use of a hearing aid. The other woman has
improved now to the extent that she can hear children’s shouts which was not
possible before treatment. Case of Cardiac Infarction (male, 45 years old). One
morning he had an attack of sharp pain in the chest. As his electrocardiogram
was known to be abnormal, a large dose of organic germanium reserved in advance
for emergency use was administered. The agony subsided in a few minutes and he
fell asleep (about three minutes after the onset of pain). The electrocardiogram
taken after he had had a nap showed extremely high St. Administration of large
doses continued and the ECG showed an astonishing improvement by the third day,
as shown by the following figures: GOT (149 at the time of attack) -+ GOT ( I 1)
after 3 days, GPT (60 at the time of attack) -+ (18) after 3 days, MG (8 at the
time of attack) -+ (4) after 3 days, ALP (7  at the time of attack) -+ (5.9)
after 3 days. Now, he is able to work quite normally. However, he constantly
carries organic germanium in his pocket for emergency use.

Cases of Mental Disorder: As
it is not always possible to expect a patient’s voluntarily expressed wish for
treatment, it is for those around him to urge him to take the drug under a
Long-range program. An example is the case of a patient with mental disorder, a
condition generally accompanied by an unfavorable constitutional make up, in
this instance obstacles affecting internal secretions. By stabilizing this
condition the patient cheered up and was capable of returning to normal social
life. With self-confidence restored he appeared to be an entirely different
person. In the case of a 15 year old girl she was diagnosed as being in the
early stage of schizophrenia. She became autistic, began to distrust everything
and to absent herself from school. One month after prescription of organic
germanium, her menstrual pains disappeared, her facial expression brightened and
her personality became very cheerful. She returned to school after one year’s
absence. As mental cases are usually allergic to various things, they are highly
sensitive to the effect of germanium. The sensitivity, however, is not in an
undesirable direction; they feel the effect even of small dosages pleasantly.
For this reason, it is as well to prescribe small doses first and then to
increase them gradually in accordance with their initial reaction to germanium.
Case of Autonomic Alaxia (female, 35 years old): Such afflictions Occur
surprisingly often in people of this age. Symptoms include heavy apprehension,
cold extremities, physical instability (giddiness), feeling in the head,
insomnia, palpitation of the heart and depression of unknown causes. Patients in
a serious condition are hospitalized, while those in a worse condition are
referred to a mental hospital. When organic germanium was prescribed for a
patient who claimed that the medicine prescribed at the psychiatry department
made him feel worse, the feeling of heaviness in the head disappeared, physical
instability was gone and mental orientation returned in ten days. She also began
to sleep better, and when administration was continued at a reduced dosage for
the following year, she recovered enough to forget the various symptoms that had
caused her suffering. Case of Whiplash Syndrome (male, 48 years old) : He
complained of headache, stiff shoulders and pain In the arm as a result of a
traffic accident that took place ten years previously. However, 18 days after
organic germanium was administered three times a day, he was free of pain. He
continued to take it for six months thereafter. Case of Articular Rheumatism:
Many people complain of pain in the joints. Such cases are found in particularly
large numbers among women past middle age. Cases concerning elbow joints.
shoulder joints and finger joints are imperatively easy to treat, but cases
involving knee joints have a much more difficult time because of the walking
movements. A feeling of pressure and acute pain develop around the knee joints
and hips for some time prior to manifestation of the signs of improvement after
prescribing organic germanium. The patient at this stage is temporarily confused
thinking that his condition has worsened. However if the dose is increased at
that time, the pain disappears, RAT that has been plus turns to minus in about
three days, and the patient will be freed from pains suffered for many years. In
the case of articular rheumatism. an especially large dosage is desirable in
order to shorten the period of suffering. The prescription can be continued in
reduced dosage after relieving the acute pain. If a large dosage is not possible
in the treatment of articular rheumatism, exercise, such as walking up and down
stairs many times a day, speeds up germanium’s effect, leading to earlier
liberation from the pain that sets in at the turning point towards improvement,
and to lightening of the load felt on the lower limbs. Case of Pneumonia
(female, 86 years old) : Large doses of organic germanium were administered
because of severe coughing and high remittant fever. This was continued for
seven days, but in consideration of her age and need for reinforcement of
vitality the dosage was reduced to half and continued. Full recovery has been
achieved. Cases of pneumonia increase in winter, but in the four years since the
use of organic germanium began, no cyanosis has been experienced and no
hospitalization for pneumonia has been necessary. This state is entirely due to
the efficacy of germanium.

Case of Asthma: Asthma
attacks all age groups. Intake or organic germanium when the fit occurs
inevitably relieves breathing difficulty, and the larger the dosage the quicker
the relief. Although there are differences depending on the seriousness of
asthma and individual physical make-up, about six months is enough to see the
patient’s complexion improve, a disappearance of the suffering from his face and
of the dropsical swelling. A Case of Asthma (female, 41 years old): The patient
was constitutionally weak with such complaints as asthma, hypertension,
headaches. constipation, pains from abdominal adhesion, hypersensitivity to
pharmaceuticals, general itches as well as liver and kidney disorders. She had
been taking Chinese herb medicines for two years but little improvement had been
obtained. On April 15, 1974, the patient was persuaded to undergo administration
of organic germanium at least for six months regularly. Initially a dose of 20
ml was given twice a day, and the dosage was gradually increased to 40 ml taken
once a day, although divided into three to four times a day when the patient
suffered pain. Within a month of administration the patient took a total of
6,000 mg (500 ml x 3 bottles) and began to feel better, relieved from headaches
and enjoying good general physical condition. In May of previous years, she used
to complain of physical disorders, but this year she felt so well that she
declared she was no longer ailing. Although she suffered from headaches before
rainy days, pain from abdominal adhesion and itches had all disappeared. In the
sixth month, relief was obtained from pains of asthma, headaches, insomnia,
lumbago and constipation that had persisted for many years. After a year of
continued administration, the remaining complaint of hypertension was also
stabilized to a level between 140 and 90. The patient now enjoys good appetite
and is in good spirits.

Cases of liver cirrhosis, esophageal varices,
abdominal dropsy (Ascites)
– (In many of these cases diabetes
mellitus complication is found. As these are very obstinate diseases,
administration of large doses from the beginning is desirable.) Esophageal
varices gradually collapse and become scars (when esophageal varices break,
bloody faeces are discharged). This may be noted from around the tenth day Of
administration, but need not be of concern as this is the turning point towards
improvement. Abdominal dropsy also subsides and assumes the (-) state. In this
case, a large dosage hastens recovery. If the patient responds speedily, the
abdominal dropsy (ascites) disappears in one month, and a stabilized condition
is reached in about six months. Even when all is well after a year, prescription
of organic germanium should be continued as long as possible because of the
nature of disease. If the patient should catch cold, contract some new disease
or develop fever, a larger dosage should be given, otherwise, complications may
develop or the disease under treatment may become aggravated. A case of
diabetes, liver cirrhosis and esopllageal varices (male, 63 years old): The
patient had been suffering from diabetes for 25 years. In March, 1973, he
vomited blood caused by liver cirrhosis and esophageal varices. Admitted to
hospital, he awaited surgical intervention on the esophageal varices. On May 21,
the patient began taking 40 ml of water solution of the organic germanium
compound three times a day. On the 8th day of administration, the abdominal
dropsy began to disappear. On the 19th day, the liver function also began to be
restored, and the patient was discharged from the hospital at his own request.
(The dosage was increased to 80 ml three times daily.) On the 30th day, some
blood was found in excreta due to contraction of the varices. The dosage was
reduced to the original amount, but the patient was in good physical condition
with a good complexion and able to walk about. In the fourth month of
administration, most of the varices examined by esophagoscopy at the hospital
presented a whitish surface, and no longer was rupture feared, with only one
varix near the stomach remaining greenish. The dosage was increased again to 80
ml. which after three days resulted anew in blood in excreta. After sixth
months, upon examination at the hospital, the varices were diagnosed as healed,
and the patient was allowed to take any food and to lead a normal life.

Cases of gastric ulcer,
gastritis.
These cases also occur in large numbers. In these
cases, too, the stomach begins to feel heavier at the turning point towards
improvement under administration of organic germanium. When the dosage is
increased at this time, the feeling of oppression disappears in three to seven
days. Subsequently, administration is continued in reduced dosages, and the
treatment may be stopped when the patient recovers to the point where he does
not even notice that he has a stomach. If he takes germanium as Soon as he feels
something wrong with his stomach at any later date, his stomach will become
normal at once. In the case of gastric ulcer, it is important to increase the
dosage at the turning point instead of suspending administration thinking that
the condition has become aggravated. If the disorder is serious, it will take
longer to reach the turning point. In addition to these cases that have been
successfully treated with organic germanium, there are numerous notable cases in
which the efficacy of organic germanium has been demonstrated. These include: a
case of general stiffness (causes unknown) that was cured in six months; two
cases of hyperthyroidism that showed an improvement in the Course of treatment;
cases of pneumonia in infants or influenza with such complications as pneumonia,
bronchitis, diarrhoea, etc., recovery from which was early.

10. Guarding against the Effects of Pollution

It is an
understatement that much has been said and written on the subject of world
pollution. Particularly relevant here is pollution of the air and of foodstuffs.
This contamination gradually builds up in the body and can lead to very serious
diseases. For instance, there has been a long continued use of mercury and
cadmium in fertilizers etc, that in sufficient amounts can lead to metal
poisoning. To study the efficacy of organic germanium on mercury poisoning, I
asked a pathologist to use it on animals. At the time, the shocking symptoms of
mercury poisoning cases of people who had eaten mercury contaminated fish in a
particular area of Japan were widely reported, and there was a real sense of
urgency to relieve the plight of the victims. The experimental results obtained
by the pathologist were as I had expected: “An intravenous injection of 0.6 mg
of mercury chloride to a rat weighing 200 gm induced a calcareous deposit in the
cortex of the kidney 20 hours after the injection. A high degree of calcareous
deposit was also observed in the medulla. The rat was then treated with the
organic germanium compound, and after 10 days, most of the calcareous deposits
disappeared, and after another 20 days, no trace of calcium was observed. The
dead cells were found dispersed, some of them in the interstices of the tissues.
After 30 days of germanium therapy, these were replaced by healthy cells, thus
showing the efficacy of the treatment. Moreover, another experiment in which
mercury was given to a rat along with germanium compound revealed no toxic
symptoms in the rat. Thus, germanium administration appears to have an adequate
effect in preventing mercury poisoning.” Once I had samples of my hair analyzed
to determine the mercury content. The average mercury content was 0.98 ppm which
showed that methyl mercury harmful to the living body was virtually nil. The
available data on the mercury content in the hair of inhabitants in Tokyo on the
other hand gives the following figures : Average inhabitants: 6.9 ppm (17.7 ppm
max.. 2.6 ppm min.) Those having a heavy intake of fish: 12.0 ppm (19.3 ppm
max., 4.7 ppm ml ‘n.) It is generally agreed among investigators that the
mercury content in the hair of Japanese ranges from 5 ppm to 10 ppm. Since
harmful organic mercury accounts for 70 % to 80 % of the total mercury content,
these high figures for the Japanese are alarming. If the methyl mercury content
in the hair exceeds 20 ppm, danger signals show in such symptoms as abnormal
perception, difficulty in walking, and loss of normal visual ability, and if it
exceeds the 30 ppm mark, the mercury poisoning may be fatal. The mechanism of
poisoning by methyl mercury has not yet been fully clarified, although one
hypothesis is that the properties of mercury atoms and the free organic radicals
that combine with them cause an electrodynamic disturbance in the living body.
Upon request similar experiments on animals were conducted using cadmium instead
of mercury to determine the effects of germanium on cadmium poisoning. The data
obtained clearly indicated the efficacy of the germanium compound. The best
method of solving mercury or cadmium poisoning is simply the prevention of
accumulation of mercury or cadmium in the body through constant discharge or a
therapy which captures and discharges any amount if accumulated. The structure
of my germanium ideally suits it for this task. The organic germanium compound
has a cubic structure with three negative oxygen ions around germanium as shown
in the subjoined diagram. The negative oxygen ions are at the base of the cubic
triangle. Two cubic triangles whose bases face each other make a molecule. Any
heavy metal accumulated in a living body is in a state of positive ions which
would jump into and be trapped in the mesh structure of the negatively charged
oxygen ions of the organic germanium compound taken into the body. The germanium
compound with its semi conducting properties is discharged completely from the
body. about 20 hours after its intake. On its way it not only captures any heavy
metal accumulated in the body but discharges itself with it from the body. So
long as we live in this polluted environment called Earth, we are bound to
succumb in the end to pathological changes in our body and mind caused by
contaminated food and air. If pollution and invasion of contaminated substances
into the body are unavoidable, the only escape seems to me the cleansing of
these substances from our body, or making our body resistant to contamination. I
am convinced that the organic germanium compound will play a role in achieving
this solution.

I touched
upon the efficacy of organic germanium in removing contaminated food from the
body when describing its efficacy in metal poisoning. In this respect poly
biphenyl chloride PCB has to be mentioned. the toxicity of poly biphenyl
chloride appearing when its chlorine combines with the biphenyl radical to
become organic chlorine. If this chlorine is separated from the biphenyl radical
to make it inorganic chlorine, it will lose its toxicity and be discharged from
the body. Various means of detaching the chlorine from the biphenyl radical are
conceivable in modern molecular chemistry. for instance, radiation may be
utilized. The organic germanium compound appears to have a special
electrochemical action. In a chemical experiment. a phenomenon which can be
regarded as evidence of its action to separate the chlorine has been confirmed.
The fact that organic germanium compound orally administered is absorbed by way
of the intestines into the blood where it combines with blood cells to circulate
through the body has been pathologically confirmed. Consequently, its remarkable
efficacy has shown itself in the liver, lungs and brain cells where the blood
influx is heavy.

11. Efficacy in Children

One of the
striking features of the organic germanium compound is its invariable efficacy
on children.

For
example, a three year old boy suffering from a brain
disease called “ligated circle of WiIlis” considered by modern medicine to be
extremely difficult to treat was cured completely,
after only a
comparatively short period of administration of germanium, so that he could go
to a kindergarten. My two year old granddaughter contracted acute otitis media
and kept crying with pain. We could relieve the pain by giving her 40 ml of
water solution of germanium compound and the effect was obtained in about I 0
minutes. Twice more she was given the same dose and the following morning, a
copious discharge of pus from the ear occurred, the swelling subsided and she
recovered quickly. In addition, the quick efficacy of organic germanium has been
demonstrated in such cases as toothache, empyema, alveolar pyorrhea, infantile
asthma, and infantile nephritis. Progressive muscular atrophy and mongolism are
among the most horrible of diseases that affect children. Organic germanium has
shown at least an inhibitory effect on their progress. Further study is required
on the massive dosage required. No less horrible are extensive burns in
children. In such cases, cure can be obtained in an unbelievably short period by
applying an ointment containing organic germanium to the affected area along
with oral administration of the germanium solution; to be noted is that the burn
heals with hardly any scar. The efficacy is similarly great on chilblains. We
have found another remarkable effect of organic germanium on children. My
grandchildren taking it regularly proved to be nearly immune to influenza. In
addition, when German measles played havoc in their kindergarten, my
grandchildren were not affected. The teacher in charge telephoned their mother,
warning her to take special care of her children, because the teacher thought
their immunity was due to an abnormality in their constitution. The following
two examples are taken from the Clinic records:

Patient
after operation for congenitally blocked bile duct (6 month old boy, weighing 7
kg) : After birth his condition was thought to be the usual jaundice, but as the
condition became aggravated, he was examined by a paediatrician who then advised
an operation because of the probability of a congenital disorder. It appeared
the child had an advanced case of cirrhosis. As Soon as he was discharged from
hospital, the parents on advice of the doctor brought the child to the Organic
Germanium Clinic. Examination showed severe jaundice, over swelling of the
abdominal, wall veins, liver tumor, spleen tumor and abdominal dropsy. At first,
organic germanium in granular form was prescribed four times a day morning,
noon, evening, and at bedtime at the rate of 60 mg per I kg body weight . The
granules were either dissolved in water or milk for administration. As no change
was observed after two weeks of administration, the dosage was increased to 100
mg per 1 kg body weight and given six to seven times a day. During the three
weeks since then abdominal swelling, over swelling of abdominal wall veins and
jaundice have improved, though slightly, and the patient has regained vitality.
The treatment is being continued.

Guillain Barre Syndrome (3 year old
boy):
In June, 1977, the boy abruptly complained of stomach ache
and pain in the lower legs. At the hospital to which he was taken his case was
diagnosed as probable acute cerebellar ataxia. Repeated examinations, however,
showed, it to be a case of Guillain Barre Syndrome, and since it was in a
progressive state, there was no special treatment. He could stand when holding
onto the bed, but walking was difficult since his knees gave way so that he
easily lost his balance. He also began to experience urinary incontinence. When
he was brought to the Organic Germanium Clinic in early. July, he was unable to
walk and complained of pain in his abdomen and lower legs. When granular organic
germanium was administered three times a day at the rate of 600 mg per day, the
boy became capable or walking within a week. In addition, in a report received
from the parents in early September, it was stated that the boy was walking
normally and was playing in the neighborhood, although his tendon reflexes were
still a little weak. In November, four months after the first visit to the
clinic, he was found to be no different from any normal boy, though he was
easily prone to loss of balance. Still, it was thought safe to reduce the intake
to a daily 300 mg which he will continue to take for some time. As a result of
published work, I have had mail from many people. Their words and enthusiasm
have encouraged me. It is not an exaggeration to say that these letters pile up
like a mountain, and each line in them. whether telling of suffering or
overflowing with joy, touches my heart. I will select one about a child, written
by his mother. she writes, “There are no doubt others having the same trouble,
so for their sake. . . .” With her permission I am passing it on, not in the
original with its many pages, but only the most important portions. My son is in
the sixth grade of primary school. Last year he had pneumonia which left his
body weakened, and now when catching cold, it would continue for a long time.
When his temperature would not drop I gave him antibiotics to reduce the fever.
He often stayed away from school, and when he did go, there was so much homework
assigned that his health broke as a result and he had to continue resting. In
the early part of March he had a fit which came upon him about an hour after he
had gone to bed. He talked deliriously, his body shook, and his mind seemed to
be confused. There was some difference in severity, and in duration, but
generally, after that, about an hour after going to bed, he was sure to cry out
and his body shake. I was alarmed and took him to the doctor I had gone to when
he had the cold. I explained the situation, and he took an EKG, and sure enough
there was an abnormality. He told me to keep a diary, and every two weeks come
for medicine which he prescribed. The fits continued unchanged, so he prescribed
a stronger medicine and in larger doses. My son took the medicine morning and
evening, but seemed to become drowsy, and yawned during the day. He became
languid, and always took a nap as soon as he came home from school. The doctor
himself was not sure what was wrong but wondered if it could be epilepsy, night
terror, or loss of coordination in the artonomic nerves. The child’s progress
was failing before our very eyes. Then, one day at a Chinese herbalist’s, I
happened on a pamphlet from the Organic Germanium Clinic. I did not understand
all the theories, but almost like a flash there came the feeling, “This is it!”
I went to the Organic Germanium Clinic, and under the doctor’s instructions
began administering germanium. I had him take the germanium in the morning and
that day there was no seizure. Day after day I sighed with relief, ‘ Ha, another
day and nothing happened. As you advised me, I did not worry unduly, and was
very careful of the diet. I stopped using the medicine from the hospital. Over a
week passed with no seizures, and the boy declared, ‘I feel, like doing
something, I feel good,’ and his expression was one of vigor. His recovery was
so fast that I grew careless, and forgot got to give him his germanium. In the
morning he took his sun bath. did his school assignments, and read his books,
but apparently he overworked his eyes and brain, and in the afternoon went to
bed. We were all worried, but when I gave him his germanium. his pain seemed to
leave him immediately. By such neglect, was it possible that the blood vessels
in the brain became constricted. and an oxygen deficiency or anaemic condition
resulted? There is one other thing I want to tell you. From the time his fits
began, he either was tired or lacked strength due to the cold and always had to
rest during the school’s physical exercise period. After starting to take
germanium, of his own accord he began taking part with energy and will. When the
school had gone on excursions, . I kept the boy out lest he be a bother to the
teachers or the other students, but with this change I felt it would be all
right, and sent him along without any worry. What words can I find to express my
appreciation. . . . A most, hearty thank you !”

All the foregoing examples show that organic germanium has a far
more remarkable and quicker effect on children than on adults. In my view, its
efficacy on adults is inferior to that on children because of the following
three factors:

1)
Deterioration of the constitution due to the strain and stress of modern living
and environment

2)
Deterioration of the constitution b. v intake of contaminated food,

3)
Morbidity of the constitution of Japanese exposed to excessive and
indiscriminate use of pharmaceuticals.

My view is
supported by the fact that organic germanium has shown a remarkable efficacy on
adults who could avoid the above three factors. These factors lead to
acidification of the body fluids, and thus to oxygen deficiency. Clinical
examples of the amazing effects of germanium on children have been successively
reported to me. I am overcome with joy at the prospect that children could be
freed from the agony of disease. The following two clinical examples have been
reported by Dr Mieko Okazawa of the clinic attached to the Infant Protection
Association mentioned earlier.

A case of
difficulty in walking due to nervous overstrain (girl, five years old) : The
patient was forced to study very hard to pass the entrance examination for a
prestigious private primary school. The overstrain incapacitated her from
walking and she was admitted to Hospital K. A dose of 60 ml containing 240 mg of
the organic germanium compound in water solution was orally administered,
divided into 20 ml portions to be given three times a day. In the second week,
the patient recovered enough to be able to walk again. She was completely cured
one month after the beginning of germanium administration, and full of regained
vigor, she successfully passed the entrance examination of the private school.
She continues to take the germanium compound daily, morning and evening.

A case of influenza complicated by pneumonia (male, I .5 month
old)
: The baby contracted influenza infected by members of the family
all of whom had come down with this epidemic. It ran a fever of 38.2°C and its
cough showed the symptoms of pneumonia. Initially the germanium compound
solution was administered two or three times a day, 10 ml each time; with
increasingly frequent coughs 10 ml of the solution was orally given 10 times a
day and 20 ml was injected five times a day. In addition, fomentation with
mustard was repeatedly applied. On the seventh day of administration, rales were
marked in the chest and the cough continued. On the eighth day, however, the
course suddenly turned for the better with hardly any rales or coughs. , I and
on the 10th day, the baby was well again. Weighing only 2,730 g at birth, the
infant did not seem to have sufficient resistance, but thanks to the massive
administration of the germanium compound the cure could be accomplished. Dr.
Okazawa spoke of the efficacy of germanium in children as follows: “We treat
many infants and children. Every year when influenza is rampant, some infants
are bound to contract pneumonia. Then we face an acute shortage of oxygen tents.
Nonetheless, with the advent of organic germanium, its administration to infants
has enabled us to cure them without needing to send a single infant to an oxygen
tent.”

Similar
reports on the remarkable efficacy of germanium have been received by me from
various sources. I can therefore claim with conviction that the organic
germanium compound is indispensable for treating infants and children.

12. Germanium and the Mind

If you
consult a medical encyclopaedia regarding mental disease, you will find a large
number of terms describing particular types of disease, which may be largely
classified into the congenital types and the acquired types. Their causes are
usually not clearly indicated. What is certain is that these diseases are
related to the brain. Among the various organs of the human body the highest
level of oxygen consumption occurs in the brain. The brain consumes 20 % to 30%
of the total oxygen supply to the body. According to the medical encyclopaedia
oxygen consumption by the brain is often governed by its supply to the brain and
is closely related to the blood flow to the brain. Assuming that the thinking
faculty hinges on the oxygen consumption of the brain, a better oxygen supply
would improve this faculty. It is known through measurement of brain waves that
the consumption of oxygen by the brain increases during higher mental activities
such as thinking and working on mathematical problems.

The
organic germanium compound in the bloodstream plays the same role as oxygen, and
therefore increases the total amount of oxygen in the body. This is attested by
the following report made by the biochemical laboratory of Tohoku University,
Japan : “An experiment was conducted on the effect of the organic germanium
compound on oxygen consumption in the liver and diaphragm of a mouse. The result
indicates that the germanium compound inhibited the consumption of oxygen.” The
amount of oxygen supplied is closely related to the blood flow, which in turn is
related to its viscosity which decreases with the increase in the amount of
oxygen available. As the viscosity declines, the blood flow eases.
Administration of the organic  germanium compound decreases the viscosity of
blood considerably. Consequently, organs such as the liver and adrenal glands
where the blood influx is high, increase in weight, a fact confirmed in animal
experiments. From this it can be deduced that taking the compound will increase
the blood flow to the brain, thereby increasing the oxygen supply to that organ.

I am
inclined to believe that various types of mental disorders are caused by an
oxygen deficiency due to a disorder in the blood circulation in the brain. This
view is based on the fact that relief can be obtained to an almost dramatic
extent just by supplying sufficient oxygen through administration of the organic
germanium compound. Thus, I have succeeded in relieving many from the complaints
accompanying softening of the brain, manic depressive psychosis, hysteria and
even the after-effects of whiplash injury. Among those helped are promising
young men who are now pursuing their respective paths full of vigor, which fills
me with indescribable joy and happiness.

Softening of the brain (female, 70 years
old):
She was confined to bed. On the seventh day of
administration of a daily dose of 3,000 mg of the organic germanium compound in
water solution, she recovered enough to take meals. Two months later, she could
walk about the house. The efficacy of the organic germanium is pronounced in
this particular disease. Its effect is remarkably rapid when administered at the
onset of symptoms. This disease is caused by defective blood vessels which
prevent oxygen supply to the brain. The efficacy of the organic germanium which
accelerates the oxygen supply is therefore naturally to be expected. The same
applies to cerebral thrombosis. It is to be noted in passing that mere
inhalation of oxygen or injection of ozone cannot bring about the effect
mentioned above. Such inactive oxygen must have its ions activated by enzymes in
the body to have any effect. The organic germanium compound, on the other hand,
plays the same role as oxygen in the body, so that its oxygen supply can be
retained without being completely consumed, which indeed is the essence of life.

13. Treatment of Depressive Psychosis By Takahiro Tanaka, M.D.,
Head Physician, Chofu Hospital, Chofu City

I.
INTRODUCTION

In 1973, I
had the chance to report on organic germanium, the carboxyethyl sesquioxide of
germanium developed by Dr. Kazuhiko Asai, used in the treatment of diseases in
general. Since then, I have observed many cases which has enabled me to verify
the efficacy of organic germanium in a variety of diseases, of which I refer in
this report in particular to cases of depressive psychosis. On occasions, I am
afraid, some statements may not convey the full meaning since I am an internist
and thus less knowledgeable about psychopath. The number of patients suffering
from depressive psychosis, including those with manic depressive psychosis, whom
I had the chance to attend during the eight years since 1970 and who are covered
in this report, amounts to only seven or eight. Furthermore, only five of these
were treated with organic germanium for periods long enough to justify
reporting. Under these circumstances, it may be presumptuous of me to make this
report, but, being an internist who has only very few antidepressants at his
disposal, and thus having no alternative but to use organic germanium for
treatment, has allowed me to evaluate objectively the efficacy of the compound
in specific diseases.

II. CASES

Case I (reported previously, female, 27 years
old):
In 1971, when still a university coed, she suffered from
depressive psychosis following
appendectomy.
It was four days after the occurrence of the
symptoms that I saw her. The patient’s eyes appeared vacant and were full of
tears, typical symptoms of depressive psychosis. Administration of 80 mg organic
germanium per day was advised. Within two days, the patient’s eyes became alert,
the appearance of vacancy and misery being dispelled. Another two days later,
her complexion had returned to normal and hardly any speech impediment remained.
Ten days later the patient accompanied by her mother went for a three hours
train ride to attend the annual examination at her university. In this case, the
total dosage of organic germanium taken during the days of treatment was 2 g,
i.e., 80 mg per day, after which administration was discontinued. Two to three
times during the said period Diazepam was also given. A dose of 5 mg of this was
given before bedtime because she complained of difficulty in going to sleep.
Seven years have now passed without a recurrence of the observed symptoms.

Case 2 (male, 38 years old): On January 16,
1975 the patient experienced a second seizure of depressive
psychosis
. It was one week later that a member of his family
came to consult me; at that time he was an outpatient at a psychiatrist’s
office. At the next visit I noticed his vacant eyes and his Jack of speech: he
was under the influence of Tofranil. According to the psychiatrist it would take
about two months for him to recover from this bout. I prescribed organic
germanium, 100 mg twice a day, to be taken in the morning and in the evening. A
week later, although he still complained of intense languor, his eyes appeared
much brighter. He was instructed to reduce the Tofranil dosage to half the
present amount. Two weeks later, his eyes had returned almost to normal, and
after another month he returned to work. He continued the intake of organic
germanium for nearly one year. Although three years since the onset of the
second seizure have elapsed, no sign of a recurrence has been observed.

Case 3 (reported previously, female, 58 years
old): Since 1968, she has had repeated periods of depressive
psychosis
at intervals of six months. While in the beginning
these lasted for up to three month, each recurrence worsened her condition,
until it reached the point of attempted suicide in 1970. At that time she began
organic germanium treatment. She had been suffering from persistent insomnia and
had been taking 10 mg doses of Diazepam when unable to sleep. Being pampered and
stubborn, she very often spurned her family’s advice of taking the drug, thus
being awake all night. germanium. Since no data were available as to the use of
organic in the treatment of depressive psychosis, I was not sure whether giving
it in this particular case would produce any results. Within two to three days
after beginning the intake of 10 mg twice a day, mornings and evenings, the
persistent insomnia had lifted, while the symptoms of depressive psychosis had
almost vanished. The intake was continued for another three years. It is now
almost eight years since the last bout. No problems have been observed since
then.

Case 4 (female, 69 years old). She has a
history of 30. Years’ depressive psychosis.
The bouts would
occur in a set pattern, the symptoms appearing with the advent of the cold
season, lasting through May and gradually disappearing towards the summer. She
would continue to feel well till the onset of the next cold season. Starting in
November, 1973, she began taking organic germanium in a water solution (2 g
dissolved in 500 ml water) that would last one month. The daily dose would
consist of 70 mg in a divided dose, taken before meals in the morning and in the
evening. The administration continued until the summer of 1976, during which
period no further attack occurred. In July 1976, probably because of a sense of
relief of being freed from all the trouble, the patient discontinued the intake
of the compound and continued to feel well all through the rest of that year.
Then, in January, 1977, she had to undergo an operation on a cataract in her
right eye, the consequence of which was a relapse into the former symptoms. In
August, 1977, the patient resumed the intake of organic germanium, 100 mg per
day. Soon signs of improvement came visible and the patient was again able to
sleep through the night. She is in good health today.

Case 5 (female, 70 years old) . More than 30
years ago the patient began to suffer from depressive psychosis
,
said to have started when she had to evacuate to the country. In this case, a
bout of the depressive state would last for three months, followed by’ one month
of well being before her condition would turn to a manic state for two months.
This pattern would be followed by’ quite normal behavior. When I saw her,
however, symptoms had become quite unsteady a depressive state today would be
followed by a manic state tomorrow. Usually, the depressive state was dominant
in January and February. It was on January 14, 1977 that she began a daily dose
of 100 mg organic germanium. During January all went perfectly well. In
February, mild symptoms were noted but subsided within about 10 days. All
through March, April and May her well being continued, a state not felt for
years. Confirmedly, she became less carrel with the prescribed intake,
particularly since April, often skipping the intake for a day or two and, when
going on a trip in May she forgot to take the powders with her. After her return
the symptoms reappeared. Being stubborn, she refused to accept the advice of her
family and her doctor. At last the administration was suspended.

14. Attendance at the World Congress of Natural Medicine

The World
Congress of Natural Medicine is an organization of scientists who will not
conform to modern medical practice, and their first meeting was held in
Aix-en-Provence, an ancient capital north of Marseilles, France. Specialists in
harmony with the principles of the organization gathered from all over the
Western World. Similar meetings have been held since in Biel, Switzerland and in
1977 in Florence, Italy. Since I had repeatedly insisted that my organic
germanium did not belong to modern medicine but was nearer Chinese herbs, I too
was invited to the meeting. The first meeting of the congress, made up of some
200 kindred spirits, opened in Aix-en-Provence. The lectures were translated
simultaneously into English, German, and French so their content could easily be
understood by all. There was excellent rapport between the lecturers and the
audience throughout the three hour sessions.

As already
noted, the congress was made up of scientists who had misgivings about modern
(Western)medicine and therefore many of the presentations dealt energetically
with Eastern or Oriental therapies such as acupuncture, massage, iridology, ion
therapy, homeopathy, and vitamin therapy.

In
addition. a number of lectures dealt with the treatment of cancer by means other
than those used in modern medicine. As one contributor said, “Fed-up with
poisons and the ineffectiveness of modern medicine, scientists are promoting
herbs, or acupuncture, or diet, or electrotherapy, but there are limits to their
properties.

Especially, there is a feeling of helplessness In the case
of the incurable diseases.
But organic germanium has broken down
the wall wonderfully. Men have toiled long years to
develop natural therapies, but this marvelous product seems to crown them all.”
Another said, “When used along with Chinese herbs a double effectiveness will
show up, and with acupuncture, or electric therapy, germanium will provide
marvelous healing powers.
It is the same with iridology, looking
at the iris may help discover the malady, but after that dieting may be the only
treatment. With the coming of germanium, we have something of great concern to
iridology.”

15. In Conclusion

Letters of
gratitude from people who have been suffering from Behcet’s syndrome, SMON
disease, aplastic anaemia, sarcoidosis and incurable hepatitis, which Japan’s
Ministry of Welfare designates as incurable diseases, fill the files in my
study. Here is one short note of gratitude from an 86 year old woman living in y
okohama, Japan, who had chronic asthma, white cataracts, was hard of hearing and
passed her days in darkness. “Since I have learned about germanium, I have had
no more pneumonia, I can hear, and now I am able to read my favorite books
again.” She enclosed this verse: My umbrella grows heavy day by day But
germanium helps me carry on. Each letter is an indictment against modern
medicine and a record of people who have found new light in life amidst intense
suffering. Just as a small candlelight can be seen from afar in the dark, the
fame of my work on the organic germanium compound appears to have reached far
corners of the world. Thus numerous letters imploring to obtain the compound are
pouring in from such countries as Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Romania,
Canada, and the U.S.A. Whatever the outward signs and symptoms there is a cause
for every sickness a deficiency of oxygen in the human body. After a dose of
organic germanium, within a short time the amount of oxygen in the body is not
only greatly increased, but dehydrogenation takes place, and poisonous matter is
rendered non poisonous, and in about 20 hours is thrown out of the body. Since
germanium does not remain in the body, there is absolutely no toxicity, and no
harmful side effects that occur with all medicines. When I say that germanium is
effective against all sickness, I can imagine not only doctors but people in
general laughing and saying I must be joking. In fact, it is proving effective
against all diseases, and I believe the doctors are going to have to reverse
their ideas of medical practice, and treat sickness on a holistic basis, since
it deals with the whole nature of man and his life environment. I am convinced
that this organic germanium compound promises to be more important than any
other drug, and its study requires a long period: in spite of the cost research
should be continued for the benefit of humanity.

IV. Germanium in the Treatment of Cancer

A Chinese
proverb says. “Better to light a candle than lament the darkness.” Darkness
still prevails in the world regarding cancer and other obstinate diseases. I am
attempting to keep a candle alight with the organic germanium compound.

1. A Challenge to Cancer Cells

I have
dwelled on aspects of the treatment of diseases of the body and mind in general
in the previous section and now I intend to concentrate on that disorder that
may affect all parts of the human form, cancer. Once again, bearing in mind for
a moment the fact that oxygen is the source of life for all living things, it is
all the more understandable how harmful an oxygen deficiency can be. The
internationally famous German scientist, Dr. Otto Warburg, clearly states in his
thesis on cancer that the growth of cancer cells is due primarily to cellular
oxygen deficiency. Since the normal, healthy cells in our bodies are aerobic, an
insufficient supply of oxygen alters the structure of these cells which develop
a series of abnormal reactions in order to survive under such conditions. The
cells begin glycolysis and turn anaerobic. The nuclei of cells which have
undergone such changes are exact replicas of the nuclei of malignant cancer
cells. An article taken from the Nov. 8, 1973 issue of the Medical Tribune,
seems to support the Warburg theory on the ulceration of cancer. It continues to
the effect that the theory has met with objections from various quarters, but a
number of prominent researchers do support it saying that cancer can be
controlled by preventing oxygen starvation from occurring in the cells.
Waltenburg, of the University of Minnesota, also agrees with the theory by
saying that anti oxidation drugs can inhibit the formation of lung cancer.
Indeed, using our organic germanium compound in 20 patients with lung cancer
there has been almost 100% recovery. Related also to the above theory is a
recent discovery made by Professor Hans Selye of the Faculty of Medicine at the
University of Montreal. Prof. Selye revealed that if the amount of blood flowing
into a living organ is reduced slightly by lightly binding one of its blood
vessels, the organ will develop a state oforbidity. Reduction of the blood flow
reduces the supply of haemoglobin by which oxygen is supplied, thereby producing
an oxygen deficiency with morbidity as a consequence. Another clue to
understanding the nature of cancer as a particular disease is to think of
disease as a certain state of the human being who is nothing more than an
organic mass. Understanding of the nature of man, therefore is essential to
treating any disease. Having tackled the question “what is matter’).” within the
range of limited human knowledge, modern physics has confirmed that man is an :
aggregate of minute electrically charged particles. In terms of modern quantum
physics, therefore, a disease is interpreted as a “distortion ” developing in
the aggregate of electrically- -charged particles that are close to electrons.
That is why electron dynamic action is needed for correcting the “distortion.”

Herein is found the area where germanium. a
typical semiconductor element,
plays a vital part. The electrons
of the germanium atom have unique properties that are not found in other atoms.
Of its 32 electrons, any one of the four in the outer shell will tend to leap
out of its orbit when approached by atoms of other substances it is by taking
advantage of this feature that the electronics industry has been able to use
germanium for amplification in transistors, and for rectification in diodes. The
living body is a mass of minute electrical particles and each organ of the body
functions as its own concentration of mass of these particles. Accordingly each
has a predetermined electrical potential of its own.

Since
disease results if this potential is disturbed the potential of a diseased organ
being different from that of a healthy organ the potential of the afflicted
organ must be restored to its normal level to effectively cure the disease. It
is by employing an effect in the body similar to its semi conducting effect used
in electronics, that the germanium compound serves to return this potential to
normal and hence cure a disease.

In cancer,
for example, it is known that the potential of a cancer cell is markedly
different from that of a healthy cell. The potential at a cancer cell wall is
high and varies greatly, a factor which may be attributed to the fact that
cancer cells multiply at such a rapid speed.

The
germanium compound, whether administered orally or injected, deprives cancer
cells of electrons, and thereby reduces their electrical potential.

In biochemical terms, this means that the germanium
compound brings about a dehydrogenation reaction, ultimately suspending the
activities of cancer cells.

It is also
by this mechanism that it acts to prevent metastasis. Other data have
established that when the germanium compound is taken in sufficient amounts,
radiation sickness as a result of irradiation treatment can be prevented.
Radioactive rays, which are gamma rays, emit electrons which destroy cancer
cells and tissues. Unfortunately, at the same time, these rays destroy red and
white blood cells as well, and have been known to cause the death of patients
undergoing prolonged exposure. Recent data have indicated, however, that the
atoms of the germanium compound securely fasten to red blood cells and shelter
the cells from oncoming electrons by diverting them around the atom.

Another
effect the germanium compound has exhibited in relation to cancer and other
diseases, and which may be attributed to its semi conducting characteristic, is
that it completely kills pain. pains after
operations, toothaches, headaches, etc.
Pain acts as a sort of a
warning given to the brain. Electrons are relayed via nerve cells from the
origin of the pain and are conveyed to the brain where they are sensed as pain.

Conventional anaesthesia serves
temporally to inhibit the movement of electrons so that we do not feel pain, and
the germanium compound, given in sufficient quantities, also does so,
as its semi conducting action stops the movement of electrons
through nerve cells. Unlike anaesthesia; however, continuous, prolonged
administration is possible due to the absence of side effects. Speaking of the
absence of adverse side effects for a moment, it may be said that this feature
adds one more note of praise which can be heaped on the use of semiconductors in
medical treatment.

Physiologically, it is very convenient that
germanium is a semiconductor and not a metal, a feature which eliminates the
danger of its accumulating in the body.
The blood and various
cells, having semi conducting properties of their own, repel germanium because
of their inherent electrical properties. In fact, one of the major problems now
facing our laboratory is that the present compound is discharged so quickly from
the body that extensive efforts are being made to produce a compound which will
remain in the body for a longer period. At this point it is difficult to explain
scientifically all the medical properties of germanium. Today, there are tens of
thousands of medicines in use and not one of them utilizes semiconductor
properties. I believe they will come to play a major part, and in fact bring
about a revolution in medical treatment in the future.

2. Prevention of Metastasis

It has
long been held by cancer researchers that cancer can be cured if the primary
lesion is eliminated. This is not as simple as it sounds, however, as cancer
cells mix in the bloodstream and metastasize or migrate throughout the body.
Doctors working with the germanium compound have repeatedly confirmed, however,
that patients receiving the compound have shown virtually no metastasis. This
alone is tremendous news in cancer treatment since, if metastasis can be
prevented, cancer can be stopped with a massive attack on the primary lesion.
Although it is known that the dehydrogenating action of the compound has an
inhibitory effect on the growth of cancer cells and plays an important role in
halting metastasis, precise details of its mechanism are not yet known. One
important clue, however, is provided by Dr. Haruo Sato of Tohoku University
(Japan), an authority on the metastasis of cancer. In a paper which he presented
to the Japan Society for Cancer Therapy, he relates that cancer cells that have
entered the bloodstream continue to move with the blood flow. If a pathological
condition should develop in a blood vessel, they will adhere to the wall of the
vessel, eventually infiltrating and destroying it to proliferate outside.
Secondary tumors can be prevented if action is taken to prevent the cells from
adhering to the vessel. Based on Dr. Haruo Sato’s theory. a plausible
explanation of how the organic germanium compound functions to prevent
metastasis is that the increase in the body’s supply of oxygen brought about by
the compound sharply reduces blood viscosity, thereby improving the blood flow.
From a hydrodynamic point of view, cancer cells as an alien substance will
continue to flow with the blood without being pushed aside until they reach the
capillaries, where they are oxidized and destroyed by the dehydrogenating action
of the compound. This explanation is hypothetical and is still being tested, but
is not improbable in the light of the activity of the germanium compound.
Information gleaned from our laboratory experiments and clinical observations
lend heavy support to the theory that cancer develops due to cellular oxygen
deficiencies. Indication is that the high efficacy of the compound in treating
lung cancer and liver cancer may be attributed to the activity of the germanium
compound in the entire bloodstream flowing through these areas. In one
experiment, a group of five mice were given a hypodermic injection of cancer
cells after administering a water solution of the organic germanium compound.
Another group of five mice were given a hypodermic injection of cancer cells
without administering the solution as a control. The hypodermic injection of
cancer cells is a method of inducing cancer in mice generally practiced in the
Cancer Research Institute. The mice injected invariably developed cancer, except
those five mice to which the germanium compound was also administered who failed
to develop cancer. This experiment was repeated twice, with the same result.

3. Experiences with Lung and Prostate Gland Cancers

A 54 year
old company employee was diagnosed as having cancer of the lungs. X-rays showed
a large bean size cancerous growth in two places on the right Jung. Although he
had been injected with anti cancer drugs, he had lost his appetite and his
strength was deteriorating steadily. It was at this stage that he visited the
germanium clinic. After ascertaining the details of his case, doctors prescribed
a 500 mg daily dosage of the germanium compound. An Ray photograph taken five
weeks later showed absolutely no trace of cancer. In addition, the dry cough
peculiar to lung cancer was gone, his overall condition improved rapidly and he
soon recovered his former state of good health. There are at least 20 cases of
lung cancer at this point which have followed a similar course to complete
recovery. It is difficult at this stage to make an objective assessment of the
overall effect or the potential future effect of germanium in the treatment of
cancer. Its efficacy is not confined to lung cancer; Numerous cases of recovery
from various other cancers are on record at the clinic today and results
achieved thus far are enormously encouraging. Aside from the fact that the
germanium compound stops the activity of cancer cells and halts the growth of
tumors, its most promising characteristic is the capability of halting
metastasis, or the spread of cancer cells. For other types of cancers results
have also been encouraging. A 62 year old man complaining of difficulties in
urinating was diagnosed as having an enlarged prostate gland, cancer was
suspected, and an immediate operation was proposed. The man, shocked at the
suggestion of having to undergo an operation came to our clinic and asked if
something could be done to spare him an operation. Our doctors prescribed a 0.5%
concentration of germanium compound solution in a daily dosage of 100 ml, or a
total 200 mg daily dosage. of treatment and he had a healthy appetite.

4. In Praise of Germanium in Lung Cancer

This
report of the efficacy of germanium in lung cancer is part of a letter to me:
“The germanium you sent me was used on a 12 year old girl who had two spreading
cancers in her lungs. At the present time the girl’s condition is good and the
symptoms of the cancer are gradually disappearing. The little girl’s father
fought like a tiger for the life of his daughter. For instance, he took her for
an examination to the most famous specialist in Romania. The girl’s mother is
also a physician, and I could appreciate the effectiveness of the germanium. You
will be interested, I am sure, in the results of the treatment since November of
last year a. Germanium was given for 3 to 4 days. b. Then it was discontinued
for 9 days. c. Then one gram was given daily for 14-15 days. After that the same
cycle was continued. Up to March 1st. the little girl took 70 grams of
germanium. This was ought by Mr. Popa, who, I think, has already sent you a
report of this little girl whose name is Alina. The girl’s father would like to
learn from you whether he should give a large amount of germanium till she is
healed, or should continue till a certain amount has been given, or whether he
should continue giving it at all. If you can give us any kind of a detailed
report, I am sure it will mean the sustaining of the little girl’s health. We
will be most happy for all the advice you can give us.” In a drawer of the desk
in my study, in a beautiful envelope is a last will and testament. Nine years
ago (197I), a couple came to my home. He was a young man 35 or 36 years of age.
His head was thickly bandaged, his face was blistered as if by fire, and
swollen, his skin was very rough, and his color quite dark. He was a pathetic
spectacle, unable to look straight ahead, and his wife had to help him to a
chair. The following ensued: “Dr. Asai, my name is Sato. Last year in the
spring, I developed a severe hacking cough, and occasionally spat bloody sputum,
so I went to the Tokyo University hospital for an examination. The diagnosis was
lung cancer in an advanced stage, and I had an operation that removed my left
lung. The cancer spread to my right lung, and since I could not have further
surgery- , I was given injections of a recently developed anticancer medicine,
very soon all the hair of my head had fallen out. the skin on my face and limbs
had swollen up, I felt all the time like vomiting, lost my appetite completely,
and felt it would be much better to die than to suffer so much. I thought the
doctor could not help me and went home. While I was in the hospital, a man in
the next bed asked me to try Dr. Asai’s germanium. ‘I have come for help.” I
then told the young man to listen carefully to my instructions, which were as
follows, First of all, he must have absolute faith in germanium, with firm
conviction that with it he was going to cure his own disease. Then it was most
important that stop all other medicines. Next, he must regulate his diet
strictly. When one starts taking germanium, a good appetite is regained and
overeating often occurs. For a time he must avoid meat, especially pork, and
animal fats. Animal organs such as liver are taboo. He must change from poised
to unpolished rice, avoid white sugar, except, perhaps, just enough for cooking,
He must think of a lot of sugar in his coffee or tea as a poison. Fish foods in
general are not bad, but he must stop eating eels, and oily tuna. Here are the
things he can eat in quantity. The representative protein foods such as tofu
(bean curd), natto (fermented soy beans), and other bean varieties. vinegar,
umeboshi (dried and pickled plums), raw vegetables, and sardines. He need not
become overly strict, and may eat lean beef occasionally. The main thing is to
avoid that which makes the blood acid. If the blood is acid, germanium’s action
becomes sluggish. Finally, he must keep in mind that it is he himself who
effects the cure, and no one else. His most effective instrument in curing his
disease is germanium. With it, the greatly enriched supply of oxygen in his body
would do wonderful work.

Ten days
later the wife came for more germanium. and on inquiry I learned that the
husband who had been unable to sleep, now slept soundly, his appetite had
returned, and he felt fine. He had gone to the hospital for an X-ray
examination. and found that the shadow of the malignant tumor had grown smaller.
They were most happy. From the wife who came regularly every 25th day for
germanium, we had this report. He was making good progress, and the next X-ray
examination after three months showed absolutely no trace of cancer. The doctor
who did a biopsy said that while it must be recognized that the cancer had
healed. they could not say the healing was complete until after five years. Just
a year later in the spring of the year, I received a fat letter from Sato. In it
was a will and two pictures along with a letter. The pictures were of a man
rowing a boat at the seashore, with a child of about five riding with him. The
figure in the boat had a full head of hair, and face full of vigor. He seemed
like an entirely different person. In the letter that accompanied the will were
these words : ”I feel that I am a very lucky man. If it had not been for
germanium, I would not be in this world today. Certainly, just as you said,
germanium is different from other medicines. After taking germanium I felt life
beginning to stir in my body. Living joy like a spring seemed to gush forth in
me. Every time I went for my regular check-up, it was amusing to see the doctor
who did the fluoroscope examination shake his head in bewilderment. Truly I am a
man who had crossed the line of death. I am as one who has been in Hades and
returned. More than anything else, I have an appreciation for what it means to
be alive. My thinking may be immature, but I cannot help feeling that man’s life
in addition to being controlled by material things, is under the direction of a
higher destiny.” What is the value of a man’s life? Said simply, is not man’s
true life value found in saving other men, and living a life of gratitude? When
I received that sentence of death from my doctor I wrote out my will. Since I
will not need a will for some time to come, I am sending it to you for a
keepsake,” The reason that organic germanium is so effective in lung cancer is
that when it enters the body, i t unites with the red corpuscles in the blood,
and is thus carried to the whole body, and with all the blood passing through
the lungs, the effectiveness there is particularly high, The same is true with
the liver, kidneys, and the brain where the flow of blood is especially great.
This accounts for the complete healing of Mr. Sato’s lung cancer previously
described, which after eight years with no recurrence, even the doctors have to
acknowledge.

5. A Patient’s Struggle with Cartilage Malignancy

It is hard
to describe the personal struggle as well as the joy on recovery of the many who
have been treated with the germanium compound just by recording sheets of
clinical data. For this reason, I have included the following story of a cancer
patient suffering from cartilage malignancies (chondrosarcoma) which he has
recounted from his personal records. NOVEMBER 1960 I received diagnosis from a
major private hospital in Tokyo of having developed a cartilage tumor in the
left heel. shortly after, I was admitted for amputation of my lower left leg.
OCTOBER 1970 Although several years had elapsed since the initial occurrence of
the disease, I received further diagnosis at this time of having developed a
cartilage tumor in the right lung. The doctor said it was a metastasis of the
one removed10 years ago. A lobotomy of the middle and lower lobes of the lung
was performed. MAY 1971 I decided to begin treatment with natural medicines to
ward off any further occurrence of the disease. Shortly after beginning
treatment with natural medicines, however, a further report from the hospital
showed that a thumb size tumor had already developed in the remaining portion of
the same lung. To reduce the swelling, I began treatment by taking a mixture
compounded of various herbal medicines (Houttuynia cordata, plantago asiatica,
glechoma heder acea subsp. gradis. artemisia, capillaris, licorice and
lithospermi Radix). Supplementing this treatment I also took separately,
molidine, vitacargen. essence of corbicula and ginseng. Two months later,
however. this treatment still had not brought an- v results. From July to
September . I tried cold and hot stimulation therapy. but also to no avail. Home
treatment with a Demiger therapy apparatus also brought no results. NOVEMBER
1971 On the advice of a doctor at the Clinic, I began fasting treatment at a
center in the mountains of Central Japan. In conjunction with fasting, I
underwent photo therapy and finger pressure therapy. I also tried treatment with
an electric vibrator during the second week of fasting. After four days the
tumor seemed to have grown rather than to have diminished in size. JANUARY 6,
1972 Met with the Chairman of the Human Medical Association. He advised:
“Disease is not the cause of a man’s death. It is his persistence in living a
life in disaccord with the laws of nature. Illness develops as a warning that
one’s life-style has gone astray offering him a chance to change course.” I
began to live on a gruel made of pearl barley, fresh vegetables, soybeans and
seaweed. In addition, I took a mixture of five major herbal medicines (enzyme.
sasa albomarginata, chestnut, pearl barley, sanzukon) and underwent finger
pressure therapy , vacuum blood purification therapy and others. JANUARY 15,
1972 Visited an association for treatment with natural medicines. Tried ozone
therapy and acupuncture in addition to vacuum blood purification therapy again
for about one month. Not wanting to die, I had tried everything that might offer
the slightest possibility of stopping the growth of the tumor. Yet, I did not
seem to have the slightest hope of recovering. My body was being eaten away inch
by inch by a hideous growth and I had reached the stage where I thought that
suicide might be a wiser choice. FEBRUARY 3, 1972 I visited the Organic
Germanium Clinic. Upon obtaining my case history in detail. they began
administering a daily dose of 120 ml of water solution of organic germanium and
of 100 mg of organic germanium powder.

MARCH 4, 1972 Dr. Asai of the Organic Germanium Clinic stressed
the importance of the patient’s own will to cure himself and suggested that I
might seek a source of strong will power in religion.
Thus, I joined
the adherents of Temple Shinnyoen of the Shingon Esoteric School of Buddhism.
APRIL 20, 1972 The priest at Temple Shinnyoen predicted that 1 would have to
remove the tumor. MAY 1, 1972 The doctors at the Germanium Clinic diagnosed that
Jack of growth of the tumor indicated the arresting of activities of malignant
cells. Destruction of the malignant cells by radiation was attempted. For
reducing the harmful effect of radiation. a large dose of 1,000 mg of the
germanium compound was administered. JUNE 1, 1972 I began undergoing cobalt
radiation treatment at Hospital K. JULY 24, 1972 After a total of 47
administrations of cobalt radiation continuously, except for four days in
between, I sustained no weakening in physical strength and my growing appetite
surprised the doctor in charge. The cobalt radiation treatment hardly caused
changes in the blood data as shown in the subjoined table, except for the white
blood cells and platelet counts that were at a near critical level. (These
returned to normal 10 days after the radiation treatment was completed). Blood
Data Before and After Cobalt Radiation July 17 July 24 White blood cells (After
47th radiation) 3.100 3,000 Red blood cells 507 513 Blood platelets 10.2 9.6
T.P. 7.4 7.4 A/G 1.5 1.55 GOT 37 35 GPT 28 30 AUGUST 8, 1972 Angiograms were
taken. The angiographic examination began by local anaesthesia at I o ‘clock in
the afternoon. I underwent a similar examination two years ago, and it was an
agonizing experience. I prayed, and I felt as though I were walking towards a
path that led towards what seemed like a rising sun. but its rays were not
glaring. While I continued, I did not feel the slightest pain and I was filled
with the satisfaction of having had a sound sleep in the morning. I heard only
the whispering of the doctors and the mechanical sound of the apparatus. Upon
hearing the noises of photographing, I was told that the examination was over.
During these two hours I felt no pain. SEPTEMBER 3, 1972 Before undergoing the
excision operation of the tumor. I went to the Temple Shinnyoen where I received
the last message: “Buddha will provide protection only to those who leave their
fate entirely to him.” SEPTEMBER 4, 1972 The operation was performed as
scheduled. The four members of my family and the mother of Priest Fukuda of the
Temple Shinnyoen and I prayed for the success of the operation before entering,
the operating room at 09 :00 a.m. The operation lasted for 5 hours and 30
minutes to remove the cartilage tumor which weighed about two kilograms,
requiring blood transfusion of 3,000 ml. I was returned to the ward at 14 :00
p.m. My father and my wife who were with me when I was operated on two years ago
were surprised to see the marked difference between the color of my face after
this operation and that after the previous operation. I looked so much better
this time. When I came to, I did not feel the pain expected after a major
operation of this sort. The surgeon who performed the operation also told me
that the operation could be carried out far more smoothly than the previous one.
On the third day I could eat ordinary food, and on the fourth day after
operation I began to get up and walk about. On the 10th day the stitches were
removed. The feared festering did not occur, nor was serum hepatitis caused
despite the huge blood transfusion. My recovery was very quick. SEPTEMBER 22,
1972 On the 18th day I was allowed to leave the hospital with the surgeon’s
assurance that I was on the road toward recovery. Three years ago when I was
able to work in the field as a farmer, I used to complain of anything in the
way. When it rained. I grumbled about the delay in my work because of the rain.
When it shone, I complained about the heat, and when it was windy, I grumbled it
was too cold. If the day’s turnover was small, I scolded the members of my
family that they ought to work harder. Now I live every day filled with joy and
gratitude though I have no income. This life of gratitude I owe to Dr. Asai and
all those who have guided and helped me, and I wish to thank each one of them.

6. My Struggle with Cancer of the Larynx

Dawn
approaches. The clock hands point to four. I am not sleepy but I try my best to
go to sleep. The cigarette stubs piled high in the ashtray as I persisted and
did 20 pages of manuscript for the day. Then, indulging in self satisfaction. I
rinsed out my mouth at the sink, and gargled with sodium bicarbonate in hot
water. When I write. I smoke. Then. before going to bed, I must wash out my
throat with a soda solution. Finally, I take a good drink of germanium dissolved
in water, and freed from the fear of cancer, I crawl into bed. However. this
night when I gargled, it seemed as if something was stuck in my throat. and I
discovered that it was difficult to raise my voice. Since I was feeling very
drowsy I went to bed. In the morning when I awoke. I tried my voice and found
that I was quite hoarse. I thought 1 had probably caught cold. but the
hoarseness did not improve. I tried to sing a familiar song but the higher notes
were no good and I did not feel like singing. I was not conscious of anything
wrong with my body, but for the, last eight months I had been writing on my
manuscript late every night, and became weary for I was not used to such
activity. I was most anxious to finish so I could leave Tokyo during the hot.
muggy, rainy season. I felt sure that I would be my old self again, and be over
my hoarseness. I gave my manuscript to the publisher, and flew to my mountain
retreat shortly after the middle of July. In early September I was scheduled to
attend a World Congress on Natural Medicine in the city of Aix-en-Provence in
France, and give a lecture under the title “The Efficacy of Treatment with
Germanium. particularly as it relates to Cancer.” However, before that I would
have to do something about my voice, so I sent to a local druggists, and bought
every kind of throat medicine he had. Of course, I continued taking germanium as
well, but there was no sign of improvement. Then, there was a vast amount of ear
wax in both ears and it became difficult to hear, but my appetite was good, I
slept well. and during the day walked in my garden in good spirits, feeling sure
that I would soon be well. On September 8th we flew to France. The content of
the meeting and my impression of it, though of importance do not need to be
detailed at this juncture. Suffice it to say that I was pleased to be able to
continue my talk for more than twenty minutes even though my throat was so bad,
and I was amazed by the rapidity with which those in attendance comprehended the
presentation on germanium. After the conference we went to Germany where two of
our children live. When my son heard my voice he said, with eyebrows raised,
“Early tomorrow morning you are to go to the hospital with me.” I answered him
light-heartedly. “Don’t worry about me, but I’ll go with you as I’d like to see
your hospital.” Through my son’s introduction. it was arranged for me to be
examined by Prof. Ronninghof, chief of the ear, nose, and throat department. He
took my tongue between his fingers, pulled it out and looked into my throat, let
out a shocked gasp, and turning to my son exclaimed, “How is this man still
alive today? He has a polyp as big as my thumb in
his windpipe,
and could have died from asphyxiation.” My son was
more excited than I. I had understood the Professor’s German all right, but I
could recall no difficulty in breathing, I felt very good physically so I was
not greatly disturbed. With the doctor’s diagnosis. and my son’s insistence, the
next day I went into surgery, and had the polyp removed. Even when travelling I
had not neglected to take my germanium, and especially in view of such an
operation, I took an extra large dose. When I came to after surgery, I felt no
pain at all, but rather as got though 1 had awakened from a deep sleep, fully
refreshed. I got up, dressed myself, and took a taxi to my son’s home. In the
evening, later, my son, with a very grave face said, “As a result of three days
the cellular examination of that polyp. they want to operate again just to make
sure.” He spoke as though he were hiding something. I replied, “If cancer is
confirmed, then I’ll have surgery- . but if not, then I prefer to return to
Japan and be treated there.” My son, with his mind seemingly made up, explained
” As a result of the cellular examination. it has been determined that a
squamous cell carcinoma with high metastasizing tendency surrounds the vocal
cords with cancerous cells. When the polyp was removed. some parts remained
after surgery, and these must not be left. They will have to open up from the
outside. and thoroughly cut away what surrounded the polyp that was removed. If
the cancer spreads, they say you have not over two years to live.” My son knew
that this would be a mental shock to me. but he did not beat around the bush.
But instead of being shocked. I felt rather that
this would be a good opportunity to prove germanium, and in high spirits 1
assured him. “Don’t worry. I’ll use germanium and cure myself.”
The next morning I reluctantly entered the hospital for a second
operation. Just as the previous time, 1 awoke as from a good sleep, and wondered
if after all I had really been operated on for throat cancer. But I felt the
gauze around my neck and accepted the fact of the operation. At this time I
recalled that a physician in Japan had told me of giving organic germanium to
his patients a week before surgery who would then experience little discomfort
and an early recovery. There on my hospital bed I did some thinking. Unlike the
temporary hocus-pocus of traditional allopathic medicine. the effectiveness of
germanium shows up in healing through the operation of elemental processes
within man himself. In the different diseases, even cancer, there is no need to
fear, and I developed the three conditions for the healing of cancer which have
since brought hope for healing to those afflicted. Indeed, these conditions
apply to all those under going organic germanium treatment for any disease.
Briefly, there must be a deep conviction that one can surely heal himself with
power he possesses. Secondly, diet is of the utmost importance one’s food must
be planned so as to keep the blood from becoming acid. When the acid base
balance in the blood breaks down, the blood becomes acidic. and the oxygen in
the haemoglobin of the red corpuscles loses its power. The capacity of the
haemoglobin in the red blood cells to carry oxygen is diminished, and this
brings about an oxygen deficiency in the body. Thirdly, oxygen efficiency in the
body must be prevented. These conditions were set forth in greater detail in the
introduction.

Late in
life Dr. Hideyo Noguchi put forth the theory of one cause for all disease by
declaring that all sickness originates from a single source, and from this
developed the concept of one medicine for all ills. That single source was
declared to be oxygen deficiency, a farsighted view which can only be held in
the highest esteem. The doctor worked on many experiments in an effort to find
substances such as colloidal platinum and others that would produce oxygen in
the body, but he died without seeing success from his efforts. If only he could
have lived to see that the taking of organic germanium supplies the body with a
considerable amount of oxygen through the blood, what joy he would have known. I
have always urged cancer patients to put complete confidence in my germanium,
and with a simple desire on my part to save those suffering from cancer, 1 have
enunciated these conditions. This may sound ideological or like self importance
on my part. Of course, there have been actual cases where cancer has been cured,
and where the suffering from cancer has been alleviated, but these are not
subjective conclusions on my part. I myself have had cancer and since I have
overcome it so beautifully with germanium as my weapon, I can provide genuine
proof, for I have tested it on my own body, and everything I say has a powerful
basis. This is bound to have great influence on all with whom I come in contact.
Such joyous thoughts must have shone on my face although I was not conscious of
it. The surgeon said to my son, ”I have been dealing with cancer patients for a
long time, but your father is the first one I have ever seen to smile on
learning that he had cancer. Perhaps this is the end.” On the fourth day after
my surgery, I left the hospital, and went to my son’s home, and on the fifth
day, my wife and 1 took a plane bound for Tokyo. I rested at home for a couple
of months, but my neighbors who knew of my illness amazed me with all their
concern on my behalf. As far as I was concerned both physically and emotionally,
I firmly believed I had been completely freed from cancer. Intuitively people
seemed to think that once a man developed cancer he was seized by the god of
death. My son in Germany became worried about me and urged me to have an
examination in Japan, and also to take radiation therapy. Added to this was the
concern of all the people around me. So I went to Keio University hospital from
which my son had graduated, and had an examination by Dr. S., ear. nose, and
throat specialist. He made several bioscopic examinations from my throat, and in
the final diagnosis declared that there was no trace of cancer cells and hence
no need for radiation. Two and a half years have passed since my operation in
Germany. I take 3 g of germanium daily, follow a well regulated life regimen, am
careful to avoid overwork, and abstain from tobacco strictly. My body tone is
better than ever before, and I have gained 7 kg in weight. I may have lost my
beautiful voice. but I can savor the joy of telling people that cancer is not
frightful, and of saving people from the suffering of a malignant disease.

7. Germanium and leukaemia

Late one
night I was called on abruptly by a company employee. From his story I learned
that his five year old son was in a government hospital with myelogenous
leukaemia. The doctor had said the case was hopeless, and because of various
injections and medications, the boy’s face was full of blisters, and his whole
body covered with a rash. He had scratched himself till the skin was broken and
bleeding, and there were openings on his sides from which the pus was
discharging. It was such a wretched condition that it made my body shiver just
to hear about it. I told him to come early the next morning bringing the
hospital’s medical certificate with him, and sent him home. I talked with the
doctor at the Organic Germanium Clinic, instructing him to give the boy 2g in
solution each day, and since the man was financially embarrassed, to cut the
cost in half at least, .Five days later the wife came and reported that the
child’s condition had improved astonishingly. The child had hated the quantity
of medicine the doctor had prescribed at the hospital and had refused to take
it. hey had thrown out the medicine but there was nothing they could do about
the injections. The child liked the germanium, however, and called it his “Water
of Life.” According to later reports, the child began feeling very well, and was
permitted to spend three days at home at the New Year. For the first time in
months the family of four were all together and had a very happy New Year’s day.
During that time, he drank his “Water of Life” freely, ate heartily, and no one
would have thought that he had been gravely ill. It is no wonder that he was so
fretful about returning to the hospital. The hospital pressed urgently for his
return. Six days after returning to the hospital, the boy died. The couple came
to my office three days afterward to express their appreciation to me. They wept
as they told me how the child had taken the germanium, saying over and over
“This is the Water of life,” as he did so. When he died, they told me, there was
a smile on his face, and no trace of suffering. His body warmth remained till
the following morning. Mr. F., an employee in the managerial department of a big
company came to me with a letter of introduction. His eldest daughter, 9 years
of age, had been diagnosed at the Tokyo University hospital as having
myelogenous leukaemia, and was waiting for a bed to open in the hospital. I told
the father he must follow my instructions and his daughter would surely survive
her “incurable” leukaemia. “First of all, you parents must show strong
conviction that she will be healed. Number two, you must be careful of her diet
to keep her body from acidity. Finally, you must  give her large doses of
germanium regularly.” Mr. F. listened thoughtfully to what I said, then
straightening up slowly, replied, “Dr, Asai, I can only say yes. by all means!
The doctor says she has only a year to live. Please help us.” I told him to get
the hospital diagnosis and go to my clinic at once, have a consultation with the
doctor, and start treatment with, germanium. I also made contact with the
clinic. Three years have now passed. and the girl is in first year of middle
school, perfectly healthy, and attending school in good spirits. She continues
to take my germanium faithfully. I received a letter from a Mr. O. studying art
in Vienna, who told me that his nine year old daughter had been diagnosed at the
Tokyo University hospital as having a bone tumor in the right arm. He asked that
I contact his wife and advise her. For some unknown reason his nine year old
daughter had suddenly developed severe pain in her right arm. As a result of an
examination she was found to have a virulent bone tumor, and they proposed
cutting out a part of the bone and making a transplant from a portion of bone
from the mother’s hip bone. As I always do, I told her that the healing of her
daughter was in her hands and not that of the doctor’s. First of all she must
stay calm for the child’s sake. She must not be agitated, or be nervous, but
surround the girl with an atmosphere of tranquillity that would give her
confidence. She must be extremely careful of the girl’s diet to keep her body
from becoming acid. She must avoid all medications, and use only an ample amount
of germanium. This was exactly the same method as I gave in the previous
examples, and good results depended entirely on her carrying out all the
instructions to the letter. Mrs. O. accepted all my remarks sincerely, and
returned home. The girl continued having monthly examinations, but there was no
more talk about an operation, and she continued attending school with no
hindrances. She did not take part in the physical exercises or the school
competitions, or other violent activities, but otherwise has continued for three
years living a normal, healthy life.

Case report (Leukaemia, male, 12 years
old)
: Diagnosed as suffering from leukaemia at a hospital. the
patient underwent chemotherapy, but no relief was obtained from such symptoms as
fever, fatigue and bleeding gums. At our clinic, a dose of 500 mg of water
solution of the organic germanium compound was administered, and on the 3rd day
his temperature returned to normal and stayed there all month. The patient
regained enough strength to go to school again. Two months later, the blood
count at the hospital where he received the initial information of his disease
revealed no abnormality. Before we could produce the organic germanium compound,
we prepared a germanium salt solution and injected it into an albino rat whose
hematogenic tissues of the bone marrow had been destroyed by irradiation of
radioactive rays. The hematogenic tissues were found restored in the marrow when
dissected about three weeks later. This experiment was presented at a meeting of
the Radiological Society. Germanium proved to be particularly effective in
treating leukaemia among children, and while in many cases the disease could be
arrested, just as many children entirely recovered.

8. Death of a Widow

With the
witness of people who have been saved by my germanium, and with the letters of
gratitude piling in veritable mountains, if I should try to write them all it
would not only become stale remarks, but would sound like a cheap publication,
and I have no urge for that. Cancer is considered a fatal disease and it has
come to the point where of late the medical world simply throws up its hands
when faced with the incurable. Thus many people, grasping at a straw, come
inquiring at my Organic Germanium Clinic. Sadly enough, most of those who do
come are in the last stages of the illness. Nearly all of those who come have
not been told by their doctors that they have cancer, but the doctor’s “sentence
of death ” has reached their relatives, and with the hope of escaping death,
they come with their earnest appeals. One fine autumn afternoon, three middle
aged women came to visit me. The purpose had to do with the sickness of one of
them, a lady around fifty years of age. The other two were looking after her.
She had been to my Organic Germanium Clinic, and the doctor had prescribed
germanium following his examination, but apparently she wanted to make doubly
sure and had come to see me. I immediately phoned the clinic and inquired as to
the nature of the illness. They informed me that she had cancer of the liver
which had spread to the peritoneum. and there was an accumulation of abdominal
fluid. She had gone to the K hospital but they could do nothing for her. I
always tell the sick that it is they who must do the healing and not the doctors
or medicine. To illustrate. I explained to the woman thus: “Let’s say this
wristwatch has stopped running. I am the one who is inconvenienced and no one
else has any concern. I plead with the watch to start running but it has no
effect. But then if I have a little screw driver, I fix the watch. It is the
same way with sickness. You yourself must do the healing, and for that you need
a tool. That tool is oxygen, occurring and active in your body, and germanium
produces it within you.” I painstakingly explained to her how she must exercise
extreme care with her diet in order to preserve the acid base balance in the
blood, and how she must develop peace of mind, and not worry about anything. My
visitor seemed relieved and returned to the K hospital where she was a patient.
In a previous book, I wrote as follows: “It is considered taboo for an amateur
to say anything about cancer. All I can say then is that cancer differs from
diseases in general, or that it is a fate man is destined to bear, I do not say
that germanium is a symptomatic treatment for cancer. What I do emphasize is
that it frees man from the hands of the devil.” One morning six days later, I
received a phone call from one of the attendants of that lady who told me that
after asking germanium, the abdominal fluid was relieved, her body condition
eased greatly, and her doctor after consultation told her to return home for
recuperation. The lad- v apparently wanted to see me and had expressed her
desire for me to go to her home. I was led into a beautiful, spacious room, and
there on a bed lay the widowed lady. I had no knowledge of her wealth and the
inheritance involved, but I could not help guessing from her statements that her
attachment to that inheritance together with her anxiety over it had contributed
largely to her illness, and had deprived her of an important element in the
healing of her disease. When I learned that the doctor was coming every day to
give her an anticancer injection, I was completely discouraged. During the next
20 days I maintained her supply of germanium. Once more I went to her home in
answer to an urgent telephone call. From her sick bed she greeted me with these
words, “Dr. Asai, my husband is calling me from heaven, saying Come, come soon.
I want to go to him at once. I want you to hear this song. Dr. Asai, you have
been a great help to me, and I can never forget your kindness. In parting., I
want to give you this record I have made. Please listen to it with me now.”
These are the words I listened to from the stereo close by: Rose, Oh beautiful
rose, Pure and fragrant upon the earth. you are the gift I offer, . Reflecting
heaven’s splendor, you are the gift I offer. Her complexion was good, and
instead of showing any suffering, her face wore a smile that gave her a
celestial appearance. As I left I laid my right hand on her brow and said to
myself, “This is best, rest in peace.” From the family I learned that she had
passed away that night as one peacefully dropping off to sleep. They reported that her body had remained warm till the afternoon
of the next day and had not grown rigid. The family had folded her hands over
her bosom and her form was so beautiful and so angel like that they found
themselves pressing their palms together in an attitude of
veneration.
From a later conversation, I learned that following
cremation, when the cremation tray was withdrawn from the furnace, the bones in
it were the color of the sakuragai (the Tellina, or literally cherry shell), and
retained their original shape. The folk had actually felt like preserving them
instead of placing them in the burial urn. When people die of cancer, not only
does the agony of death usually remain on their face, but it is said that even
after cremation, the traces of cancer invasion can be clearly detected in the
bones. One wonders if this is the result of the final struggle with the demon
death that drains all strength when life ebbs out in utter exhaustion. However,
germanium performs the glorious role of knocking out this demon, driving him
away and then peacefully leading the soul to the feet of God.

9. Death of a Maiden

The god of
death if he has an opening, mercilessly attacks even the young, and it is
absolutely futile to try to combat him with ordinary methods. Strangely enough,
a girl of 18 or 19 years with an incurable brain tumor provides such as example.
The January 20, 1968 issue of the Japan Economic newspaper, carried an article
of mine under the title, ” A 20 year obsession with germanium,” in which I wrote
of the therapeutic effectiveness of germanium. The next morning an elderly- v
gentleman I took to be about 60 years of age, called on me. He had come to see
me after learning my address from the newspaper. “Dr. Asai,” he said, “My 19
year old daughter is suffering from a brain tumor, and the doctors have given
up. I want you to help her with germanium.” I questioned him further and learned
that two years earlier, she had suffered from severe headaches, and he had taken
her to the neurosurgical department of the Tokyo University hospital for an
examination. This resulted in a diagnosis of brain tumor, and she had undergone
surgery and returned home. They had told him that she had no more than two years
to live. After two years there was a relapse and she was taken to the hospital
again. The attending doctor declared that there was nothing to do but operate,
but there was no assurance she would live through the operation. Since she was
still alive. the father chose to take her home. The headaches grew increasingly
worse. and he could not stand to see her suffer. As a parent myself, I could
easily understand how this father could not bear the thought of his daughter
dying at the very threshold of adulthood. More than that, the thought of this
innocent, pure maiden being so suddenly attacked by the god of death filled me
with rage, and  was moved with zeal to join battle with him at once. I gave the
father a 0.2 % solution of my synthesized organic germanium and told him she
should drink 40 ml, and thereafter take the same amount before breakfast.
dinner, and supper, three times each day. I told him that for germanium to exert
its force, her food intake should be regulated to avoid blood acidity. Then I
told him to stop using all medicine prescribed by the hospital. I also pointed
out how important it was to believe in the germanium. In the case of a child,
the influence of the parents is extremely great, so they must deal with this
matter in an attitude of prayer. In his book Man. The Unknown, Alexis Carrel
makes a statement with which I whole heartily concur. He writes: “. . .However.
following the great scientific experiments of the 19th Century, this faith man
has completely lost. Not only is the view widely held that there have been no
miracles in the past, but that there is no possibility of any miracles being
performed in the future. Just as the laws of thermodynamics make perpetual
motion an impossibility, the Laws of biological science recognize no miracles.
This is the current attitude of biologists and doctors in general. However, the
facts we have gathered up to now do not support such an attitude. The most
important facts show up in evidence collected in the medical bureau at Lourdes.
Our general concept of the influence of prayer on diseased conditions results
largely from the observation of almost instantaneous healing of such illnesses
as tuberculosis of the bones, tubercular peritonitis, liver abcesses, osteitis,
festering wounds, skin lesions (lupus,) and cancer. The healing process differs
but little with different individuals. Sometimes it is accompanied by intense
suffering, then suddenly there surges a feeling of recovery from the illness.
Then in a few seconds, or a few minutes, or at least in a few hours, the wounds
close, the symptoms disappear, and the appetite returns. It cannot be doubted
that the miraculous recovery is exceedingly more rapid than ordinary recovery
from an illness.

The absolutely essential element in this is
prayer
. While this is true, it does not mean that the sick person
himself does the praying nor that the sick person himself must hold certain
religious convictions. It is enough if there is someone
in an attitude of prayer at the sick person’s side.
Such facts as
these hold an extremely important meaning, and they reveal that in the
relationship between the mind and the bode there is an element we do not know.
They reveal to us objectively the consequence of the actions of the mind,
something the hygiellists, the doctors, the educators, and the sociologists have
shown practically no intention of studying. We are standing at the doorway to a
new world.” It was the evening of the following day when I received a telephone
call from the father who had called on me the previous day and gone home with
some germanium. “Dr. Asai,” he said, “the headaches have left her like a bad
dream, and her appetite has returned. Is it all right to feed her?, “That’s
fine,” I replied, “I’m happy to hear it. A void meat and acid forming foods as
far as possible, and give her tofu (bean curd), vegetables, with some vinegar,
as well as sardines.” Three days later I prepared five 500 ml bottles of germanium solution and took them to
the patient’s home. I have often gone In  condolence to the sick beds of young
people, who were usually suffering from cancer or severe rheumatism, and so
often, when I entered, the atmosphere of the place, the light, the room
arrangement, the odors, and the impressions I got from the people gave me
sensations in my skin that cannot be described. Something like a dark, damp
atmosphere seems to strike my forehead and cheeks, and I find it hard to
breathe. Conditions in this house were the same.

I
wanted to do anything I could save this girl from
an incurable disease. so with a prayer in my heart I took her hand and earnestly
explained the power of germanium. I dreamt of making this girl well, and then
have her come and work for me as a symbol of the power of
germanium
. The young girl took a remarkable turn for the
better. She left her bed to sit in the sun on the veranda, and joined the family
at the table at meal time. Folks around her naturally looked upon the results as
miraculous, for it was something they could not have imagined up to a short time
ago. I never failed to go each month to her home and take her germanium. The
young lass made every- effort, even to the point of tears, to overcome her
malady. Every time 1 looked at her, I grew exasperated as I wondered if there
was not some way to speed up her recovery. Thus that year passed, and the girl
was able to greet New year’s Day of 1969. January 15 was to be Adults’ Day for
her that year. As I saw the other girls of her age in their gay clothes filling
the streets and frolicking with their companions, I impulsively bought a red
sweater and took it to her home. The mother met me at the door and said, “Since
morning my daughter has not felt well, and has remained in bed. I’m glad you
have come. Please try to cheer her up.” I went at once to her bedside, but why
should she seem to be pouting when I came in, turn her face away, pretend to be
sleeping, and not greet me at all ? Perhaps she had a headache. I told the
mother of the Adults’ Day celebrations, and leaving the sweater, I returned
home. Ten days later, I felt somewhat disturbed and went to her home again. That
day she seemed to be in better spirits. She was sitting in a chair beside her
bed, gazing into the corner of the room. She became conscious of my presence,
and reached out and picked up from beside her bed, a package wrapped in paper,
and without a word handed it to me. In it was a little basket daintily woven
from colored straw. I took the basket from her hand and gazed at it for a while.
I could not hold back the tears that filled my eyes. Without doubt she had
worked hard with her crippled hands and woven that basket just to make me happy.
I could stand it no longer, and as I left the house I cried out in my heart,
Mephisto, you demon who torments this sweet little girl take away your hand.
There are many others in the world you might make to suffer. Mephisto, get out
and leave! Although the girl had regained her vitality to that extent, by autumn
of that year she was again confined to her bed. This was due to the sudden
appearance of a lump on the back of her head with a swelling of the scalp. From
the father I learned that at the first operation, they found that the cancer
cells had penetrated quite deeply and could not completely be removed. The
opening in the spinal column for the spinal fluid was also clogged with cancer
cells and a tube had been put in the spinal column so the fluid could flow. Such
a medical procedure was nothing more than a phony makeshift, but present medical
science seems to have no other course outside such a method.

Our
present medical science is impotent against the evil spirit who lurks stealthily
in the great world of nature, waiting for the opportunity to work mischief on
humanity and cause them suffering. Based on my experience, organic germanium in large doses causes the cancer cells to
break down and form into thick, darker pus
. This is due to
the fact that cancer cells are protein and when they are broken down, they decay
and indisputably they produce poisonous substances as a consequence. In some
cases these are expelled from the body naturally, but in many cases they remain
in the body. If such is the case, these putrefied elements must be removed at
once. In this way a patient in the last stages of stomach cancer was saved, and
also a man with a cartilaginous tumor on his side as big as a watermelon was
healed. I was certain beyond the shadow of a doubt that the swelling on the back
of the little girl’s head was just such a thing. I urged the father repeatedly
to take her immediately to the neurosurgical department of the Tokyo University
hospital for a Consultation where she had been previously examined. The father
stubbornly refused. Once a man gives way to unbelief, his whole nervous system
builds up a negative reaction irrespective of logic. Whether the father saw the
surgeon’s scalpel at the Tokyo University hospital as the devil’s claw, or
whether he thought that the doctor’s treatment was not to save his precious
daughter but rather to take her life, in spite of m- v earnest counsel he
refused to the end to say yes. In this instance I discover the fateful cause and
effect of man’s life. I said to that stubborn father that what I urged did not
mean an Impurities from the body. I continued to press the matter but with him
it was only futile. I increased the dosage of germanium to the girl. It had
already been absolutely non-toxic. Moreover, I had tested it in my Own body with up to 5 g in one
day,
and had her take over a period of time, 3g per day, one before each meal. The
girl’s condition while not good, still showed no particularly bad elements. With
no signs of fluctuation, she remained on her sick bed for three years after
beginning germanium treatment. While germanium prevents illness from worsening
into death, some day the Sword many break or the arrows be spent. Still, this is
only an observation on dilly dallying, and on effectiveness in prolonging life,
and has no relation whatsoever to recovery from illness. Again I tried to
convince that father but a~ gain I was unsuccessful. On the contrary he stopped
germanium and began Chinese herbs, to my further consternation. One day late in
June as the end of the humid, rainy season drew near, I suddenly got a phone
call from the girl’s other, telling me that in spite of all her efforts to live,
the girl had died. While no one was watching she had passed away as though
falling asleep. Following the deathwatch I wrote in that day’s journal, the
little girl was by no means taken away by the god of death.

God had called his beloved to his
home to save her from suffering
. As proof did her face not shine vividly, a smile play around her
lips, and did she not look like one of heaven’s maiden’s.
The death
of a loved one is so holy that one can only pray in silence. When she was placed
in the coffin with her face surrounded with flowers, in no way did it appear as
the face of one dead. There was no trace of the suffering
from that fateful disease.
Her form as one unconscious in sleep,
seemed like a princess from fairyland. or a sleeping nymph from the forest. When
placing her into the coffin, according to her mother, there
was no rigidity in her body, and thinking of her again as a child, she had held
her in her bosom. The body was still warm. and the mother said they hesitated to
place the corpse in the coffin.
When they placed their hands in the bed
where the girl had been it was still warm. and they were cheered b- v the
thought that she had not died but had peacefully
gone to heaven led by the hand of God
. After cremation. the
remaining bones were of a dainty cherry shell
color, and the Adam’s apple in particular remained without
crumbling.
Those involved were astonished that the ashes
could not be contained in the burial urn. From inquiry I learned that five days
before her death, the girl had spat out a large amount of foul smelling matter
like thickened blood. This convinced me even more that I had not been wrong in
my judgment.

10. Peaceful Death

A doctor
friend of mine in Yokohama sent me the following report. ”I have been amazed at
the effectiveness of germanium. I was asked to examine an inoperable patient in
whom cancer, beginning in the lungs. had spread to the liver, the pancreas, and
to all his organs. He was a male about 50 years old and was in such pain that
his loud cries disturbed the other patients, and he had to be given large
quantities of morphine to induce sleep. Even this was insufficient, so they put
him in a bed with wheels on it, and had moved him to the front of the morgue. I
had organic germanium with me and gave him successively five hypodermic
injections of 40 mg in 2 ml ampules. I left ten more ampules with the nurses
with instructions to continue giving them till the next morning, and returned
home. The next day I had a phone call from the hospital reporting that after the
injections, the patient became energetic, was hungry, and asked for food. I put
germanium injection solution in my bag and hastened to the hospital. When I
arrived, they were just ready to start administering a glucose solution by
intravenous injection. I added germanium solution to the drip solution, and left
15 ampules for injection every two hours. I did not go to the hospital after
that, but was informed by the hospital that the cyanosis, that is, the dark
purple color of the face so characteristic of cancer patients, had changed to a
living flesh color, his pain was gone, and he was in good spirits. In fact, he
had suddenly wanted to make known his last will, and had asked that his family
be called. His family arrived, and at great length he had given instructions as
to what should be done after his death, two days later, as if dropping off to
sleep, he had died peacefully ”

11. Concluding Remarks

Cancer is an incurable disease.
There are various means of treating it, such as carcillostatic substances and
radiotherapy but it is undeniable that none of these treatments offers
conclusive efficacy. I would like to state that organic germanium is
indispensable in treating cancer. It is needed not only for treating benign
tumors but also for all obstinate diseases arising from ever, if the disorder is
diagnosed as cancer malignant tumors. How the earlier the administration of
germanium the greater the effect. In any case, even a “wonder drug” will
naturally be ineffective if the disease is in the terminal stage or the
“cachexia” due to cancer has progressed too far. What is most distressing in the
case of cancer is the pain attending the terminal stage. Anodyne is usually
injected continuously in an attempt to relieve the pain. Only organic germanium
can relieve this pain resulting from terminal cancer. When organic germanium is
injected into a patient with advanced cancer who can no Longer take the drug
orally, the pain and suffering miraculously subside. To give a final example,
there was a man aged 64 years, whose doctor had given him only six months to
live with lung cancer. When this patient began to take organic germanium. He
lived through the first six months, and though he caught a cold he lasted
through one year. This man ultimately died after a year and seven months from an
asthma spasm caused by an aggravated summer cold, but his death was painless. I
said earlier that it was difficult to make an objective assessment of the
overall effect of germanium in the treatment of cancer. Cancer is a disease causing those afflicted mental and
physical agonies far beyond those imaginable in any other disease. The majority
of the patients who come to the Organic Germanium Clinic are in the last stages
of their disease. They turn to us as a last resort.
Mostly they
are too weak to appear in person and are represented by a relative in a last
desperate effort to help the afflicted escape imminent death. Of the patients
who are now being treated with germanium, most refuse to return to modern
medicine, but remain at home and continue germanium treatment. One youth began
germanium treatment after receiving notice from his hospital that his case was
hopeless, and is now well. Many in worse conditions with only a day or two to
live, have extended their lives three months, a year, two years, and in some
cases even four years with germanium. Most of all, however, these people
appreciated the relief from intense suffering brought by treatment with
germanium. The unfortunate for whom it was too late to extend their lives passed
away peacefully freed from the agonies associated with cancer.

V. From
the Logical World of Science to the Mystic World of God

1. Miracle
Waters

The
writings of Alexis Carrel have had a great
influence on my concept of life. In 1912 he won the Nobel prize for physiology
and medicine for his origination of the Carrel suture
, a
technique for suturing blood vessels, and for his work in transplanting internal organs. He was
a true scientist but he recognized a world that
transcends science.
He believed in that world and that is what
interested me most. His intimate friend, Dr. Lindbergh. an American physician
and doctor of philosophy, wrote this. “Carrel’s spirit as with the speed of
light crosses from the world of logical science to the mystic world of God and
back again.” Carrel says this, “We must be freed from the
universe created by scientists with their marvelous intelligence.
We
stand in awe before the great expanse of the material world, but it is too
narrow for mankind. I cannot believe that we are hedged in by the confines of
this material world. We know that we have a wider expanse that transcends the
physical.” Carrel’s treatment of the phenomenon
of crossing over the boundaries of science began as a result, it is said, of his
visit to Lourdes
. The sick who go to Lourdes
drink the holy water, or those with serious
illness bathe in it, and they declare they are healed.

Carrel made careful observations of the large number of the sick who came every
year and are saved by the “miracle water.” This led him to a new
concept of science and religion and to the
discovery of a great deficiency in modern medicine. As I read in his book of the
healing powers of the miracle water its striking similarity to my organic
germanium.
Why is germanium
so miraculously effective against disease, the puzzle has not yet been solved,
but the secret seems to lie in its molecular system.

Organic germanium has a strong hydrogen
combining binding force due to the many unstable oxygen atoms in it. When there
is an oxygen deficiency in the human system, the blood becomes acid and sickness
results. However, organic germanium, because of its special tendency, of
hydrogen attachment,
unites with
the hydrogen which is then thrown off from the body, and the oxygen that remains
does its effective work in the cells.
This may clarify
somewhat the puzzle of the water of Lourdes and
the holy water of Yamabuki which have engendered faith in so many people.
Indeed, it seems that those who are spiritually motivated
are those that have benefited the most from organic germanium compound.

2. Water
of Lourdes

In the
Pyrenees on the French Spanish border, there is a small village named Lourdes
with a population of about 10,000. Numerous hotels boarding houses and inns are
clustered all over town and around its famous cathedral and its even more famous
vicinity, accommodating guests from all over the world. By far the largest
contingent of these people are comprised by the ailing who seek a cure with the
help of the healing waters gushing out of the rock on which the cathedral is
built. The August 9, 1971. issue
of the Newsweek carried the following story. “A three
year old girl contracted kidney cancer. One of the kidneys was excised, but the
cancer spread to the cranial bone. She became emaciated her hair had fallen out
and her skin had turned yellow. Her whole system was affected by cancer and the
doctors had given up her case as hopeless. As a last resort, the parents sat her
in a wheelchair and went to Lourdes, where the cancer stricken girl was dipped
in the sacred water or which she also drank. No sign of improvement appeared,
and the discouraged parents brought their daughter back to Glasgow, Scotland, to
let her die at home. On the morning of the third day
after their return, the girl suddenly sat up in bed and asking for an orange she
began eating it
.
From then on her condition began to improve
and several days later, the tumor disappeared and
she was once a gain a healthy girl.” This story was accompanied by a photograph
showing the girl in good spirits.
This even created a major
sensation in the medical circles of Scotland, and the fame of the miraculous
water of Lourdes spread widely. I have analyzed
some of the “miracle water” and found that it contains a relatively high amount
of germanium.
It must be said that I have no information as
to what other compounds are contained in the Lourdes water but in comparison
with other waters the amount of germanium was far greater. In Man, the Unknown,
Dr. Alexis Carrel writes : “Man enchanted by the remarkable progress in the sciences of
lifeless matter (such as physics and chemistry)
has not
realized that the body and mind of man are governed by laws as precise as those
governing the stars, and yet they are far more mysterious; moreover, man does
not know that he is on the verge of danger as soon as he violates these laws.”
In the same book he says, ”I have attempted to make clear the fact that things
still unknown remain to be solved, but that there are things that are entirely
beyond the range of human knowledge.” Organic germanium is a substance directly
bound up in some way with life, and this discovery has impelled me into the
mysterious world within nature that is beyond the
wisdom of man.

3.
Yamabuki no Omizu (Mountain Rose Spring)

I have
dwelled upon the water of Lourdes since it has shown miraculous efficacy on
cancer and other severe diseases and in this respect bears a strong resemblance
to the action of germanium compound that I developed. Guided by the distinct
germanium line traced on the chart recorded by the atomic absorption meter when analyzing the
Lourdes water, and assuming that there is also a spring in Japan which is
similar to the spring of Lourdes, I began investigating wonder working waters
such as hot spring waters popularly believed to be a Cure for diseases. I
finally came across a spring called yamabuki-no-Omizu (Mountain Rose Spring) which
particularly attracted my attention. It is located on a mountain on the
northern Island of Honshu.
The spring belongs to a Shintoist sect, its followers having been reported cured
of obstinate diseases by drinking the water from this spring. Unlike the tourist
atmosphere in Lourdes, there was a up the wooden
chapel and prayer hall
. About five kilometers further
mountain, stood a small shrine surrounded by large trees. Aside the shrine
gushed out “Yamabuki-no-Omizu” which was led through a bamboo pipe to facilitate
drinking. I picked up a wooden ladle lying nearby and scooped up a mouthful of
water, which I kept in my mouth and swallowed in sips. It was cold and had a
pure fresh taste. I brought a bottle of this water back to Tokyo for Lourdes,
the water from analysis. As with the water taken from this spring indicated a
clear line of germanium. In the area covering the three northernmost prefectures
of Honshu, mineral veins of metamorphic rock
(this is a high pressure, thermal water type ore, distributed. In addition to
commonly called black ore, are widely high iron content, the ore contains gold,
silver, copper and zinc
. Germanium has been extracted mainly from slag obtained by smelting
copper or zinc ore
. On analyzing the black ore, my
expectation that it surely Contained germanium was confirmed. Various questions
arose concerning the water called in the ore get into Yamabuki-no-Omizu: How did
the germanium the underground stream, and how
could the inorganic germanium in the ore change into organic germanium content
in the water?
During the course of my research in the past,
I once took up the problem as to why organic
sulphur is contained in coal. Sulphur in coal presents problems when it comes to
the stage of steel manufacture as it causes the quality of the steel to
deteriorate, in addition it produces toxic sulfurous acid gas when
burned.
ln-organic sulphur
can be removed from coal through coal dressing, but there are no ways of
removing organic sulphur in coal
.

During my
search for an explanation of the cause that
changes inorganic sulphur into its organic form,
I conducted
a series of experiments, through which at last I found the answer that this
metamorphosis is the work of certain bacteria.
Using a highly magnifying microscope on samples taken from sulphur springs the
existence of sulphur eating bacteria could be confirmed.
In
Kagaku (Chemistry) Vol. 28 No. 3, a scientific magazine published by lwanami
Publishers, r read a report that Prof. Voronkov who heads a chemical laboratory
in Soviet Russia, maintained at the Third
International Conference on Organic Silicon Chemistry that silicon bacteria
exist
and the Si-N-C combinations but microbes synthesize
not only Si-O-C or Both also Si-C combination in the body. Both silicon and germanium are typical semiconductors and widely
distributed on the earth, and are considered to have played an important role in
the origin of life.
Thus the existence of ***germanium bacteria*** is naturally conceivable,
and it stands to reason that as with silicon bacteria, these bacteria have the
ability of turning the inorganic into the organic form,
thus
relating it with the life cycle. With all the aforementioned as a base r have
come to the conclusion that it is germanium that is the Source of the miracle
brought by the Water of Lourdes and the yamabuki-no-Omizu.

4. Germanium Bathing

Whilst
discussing the “miracle” waters perhaps it would not be inappropriate at this
point to mention the germanium bath. This is the latest development in the
administration of germanium which, as I have mentioned previously, is given
orally, by injection, and may be applied directly to the affected area. It goes
without saying that nothing is more important to body improvement than a good
metabolism, yet, strangely enough, after much
sweating from a germanium bath, people come out with no feeling of exhaustion at
all.
Artist Eisetsu Shiratori, who made use of the bath,
reported his experience as follows: ”I was very tired when I arrived yesterday,
and even though I stayed up late visiting, I slept soundly last night, and
not only had my weariness disappeared, but I felt
invigorated. This is the first time I have had such an
experience,
This morning I felt a strong urge to get back to
work. Thank you for the wonderful bath.” It was amazing to see how pleased he
was. There are many examples like this. One old man who had suffered from
neuralgia for many years found relief, and came back every third day. A middle
aged woman who had had stubborn constipation it had been a of eight years
rejoiced when the trouble left her as if it had been a bad dream. Mr.
Yanagizawa’s

report included the following:

l. After two or three minutes in the bath, the body became
covered with large drops of perspiration.

2. After the bath, the whole body continued to glow with warmth.

3. After two or three times in the bath, leg and hip pains all
but disappeared and the persons could walk with ease.

4. People with persistent constipation completely recovered, and
were able to have regular and normal bowel movements.

5. People developed good appetites and could hardly wait for
mealtime, and then they ate heartily.

6. Individuals with low blood pressure or poor circulation, once
their bodies had been wanned, had no trouble with insomnia or with body
chilling, and they had no distress when they got up in the morning.

7. A fat woman, from Aichi Prefecture, whose feet had turned
purple in the forepart, found them light again after two or three times in the
bath and was able to walk without trouble.

8. A woman secretary from Tokyo, after treatment at Kurbad
returned home with a happy face free from her nervous condition and from the
weariness of travel.

5.
Religion, Divination and Germanium

I often
find myself thinking about the wisdom of the people of ancient times. The
Eki, or the Chinese art of
divination
, is said to have been developed through 5,000
years. It is an immense collection of acquired
wisdom by the ancient people
. As one master of this art of
divination said, divination was originally meant
to clarify the movements of the stars, the sun and the moon, the formation of
heaven and earth. and the development process of human intellect, thereby
explaining in great detail the creation and evolution of life including human
beings.
In short, it is a
condensed form of description of nature.

This art
defines everything related to the creation and
evolution of the human world in a theory of dividing everything into the
positive and the negative.
Based on this
theory, it divines the progress of the heaven, earth and man which comprise the
universe.
Since food for survival of man is related to the creation and
evolution of human beings, food is an important field of the art of divination,
on which the traditional Chinese medicine is based and the Oriental medicine has
been developed. A certain cycle of phenomena in
nature that is widely known may be considered to be a kind of
transmigration.
Metallic elements in the soil are absorbed
by plants, thereby contributing to the growth of these plants, while animals
take metallic elements into their bodies by eating these plants.

Within the body, inorganic metallic
elements are turned organic. These elements are eventually returned to the soil
through discharge or death.

It is conceivable that certain elements
including germanium contribute to the growth of life following the orbit of
transmigration in nature. If we introduce this orbit of transmigration of
germanium into Our living system,
We can avoid the contraction
of even such diseases as cancer and maintain health in conformity with the law
of nature. This has been my train of thought.

Germanium
is indispensable to transistors. If this useful element in the forefront of the
electronics industry plays an important role in the maintenance of health, it is
clearly to be considered providential. I once published these thoughts in a
newspaper article, and obtained surprising repercussions from readers. My
telephone rang from early morning till late at night, and Scores of visitors
came to see me. Letters I received from all over the country were too numerous
to answer.

Most of
those who contacted me wished to consult me about their ailments and obstinate
diseases.

What impressed me most then was lack of confidence among so many
people in modern medicine and their ignorance regarding the close relationship
between food and health.
Another surprise was the number of
prominent persons from religious and divination circles who called me on account
of that article. These people showed an inordinate interest in germanium. Those
in the religious circles appeared mostly to be of the opinion that germanium
will serve greatly as an aid in curing spiritual and physical troubles through
faith in God or Buddha.

Most of those engaged in divination welcomed the
news of germanium, saying that they had long expected the emergence of germanium
as the substance for saving mankind.

I asked
several of them to divine the number 32 which is the atomic number of germanium.
All agreed that “the substance is the origin of all creatures and substances and
forms the center of all things in the universe and performs miracles.” The fact
that all the diviners told me the same with only a slight difference in wording
gave me quite a thrill. I talked with these people about the fortunes of
germanium. In short, they expounded the law of a world that is impossible for
men to know. I surmised that they meant to say man must not disregard or defy
this law.

From this,
I concluded with conviction that germanium is
a four dimensional substance directly connected with life and is essentially
different from conventional pharmaceuticals.

I have
received countless letters of appreciation from people cured of their diseases
through germanium therapy. These letters represent case histories of various
obstinate diseases. Invariably the writers of these letters urged me to relieve
others who are suffering from similar diseases by making this organic germanium
compound available for them as soon as possible. These words moved me deeply and
made me realize that man is good at heart after all in spite of this callous
world. There is always something special in the happiness one feels upon
recovery from disease, which makes it essentially different from other
pleasures. The voices of these people strike a particularly responsive cord in
our hearts.

Nevertheless, countless people
suffering from obstinate diseases still do not have access to the organic
germanium compound I have discovered. Men do not even know of its
existence.

Some fail
to understand who have its amazing efficacy. All those been Cured with germanium
express their for their encounter with the organic germanium which makes me all
the more eager that everyone should utilize this therapy in the future.

As I have
repeatedly stressed, the germanium therapy is essentially different from mere
symptomatic treatments; it is closely related to the essential characteristics
of man. The difference between a brass band playing a march and an orchestra
playing a symphony. In other Words, germanium therapy not only depends on the
increased oxygen supply to the body cells but on something that cannot be fully
explained merely in the usual scientific terms. The sick visiting the spring of
Lourdes always attend mass and offer their fervent prayers before drinking the
miracle water. Those who drink yamabuki-no-Omizu are pious believers with an
ardent faith in Shintoism. I do believe that something unknown and impossible to
know exists to give the miracle water the healing power. When the 67 elements
indispensable for living things are arranged in a single ‘ horizontal row in the
order beginning with hydrogen, germanium of the atomic numbers, is located at
the 32nd position or just in the middle of the row. This atom concurrently has
the properties of positive and negative ions.

In the Chinese art of divination, everything in the
universe is considered to be governed by ki made up by the positive and the
negative. I am inclined to think that germanium is precisely something that
corresponds to this “ki” (prana).

Chinese
medicine is said to be established on the concept of ki, and Chinese physiology
maintains that there are two circulation systems circulate the human body, and
there are two substances that circulate in these systems: “intangible ki” and
“tangible blood.” The blood circulates in blood vessels and the ki circulates in
channels of ki though out the body. A considerable number of phenomena confirmed
through the long process of history by the Oriental medicine remain inexplicable
in terms of the present level of development in science.

VI. Future Trend in Medical Treatment – Inducement of the Body’s Natural
Healing Power

The other
day I had an interesting conversation with a friend now living comfortably in
retirement. This friend had earlier been successfully treated with my organic
germanium compound and had become a firm believer in its efficacy. For many
years he had been from had been ringing in the ears, and although various
medical cures had been attempted, he had gained little relief. Treatment with
organic germanium, however, completely healed his ailment, and furthermore, his
general health showed a most remarkable improvement. In fact, one would hardly
suspect that this healthy gentleman had already lived over 70 years, Borne out
of a philanthropic spirit and on the basis of his own experience, he decided to
use my organic germanium Compound (without infringing on any pharmaceutical
regulations) to help other people suffering from incurable diseases. Not
surprisingly he has been a very successful in his efforts, much to the gratitude
of’ large number of people. My friend had this to say. “Rather than being
similar to modern is more pharmaceutical medicines. this organic germanium
compound like one of the traditional Chinese medicinal herbs. I have used it to
treat a number of different illnesses, and have found its healing effect to be
more constitutional than allopathic that is, it acts on the body as a whole
rather than on any specific symptom. “To put it more simply, your organic
germanium cures diseases by inducing the body’s own natural healing powers. I am
convinced that by increasing the flow of oxygen, organic germanium stimulates
latent natural healing powers existing in the human body, thereby resulting in a
very effective cure of any illness.” From the way in which various diseases had
been cured by organic germanium treatment, I too, had become aware of a rather
close link between the action of organic germanium and natural healing processes
in the body. However, at that time, I had very little idea of just what these
healing powers were, or how they were to be described in scientific terms.
Another interesting visitor came to me some time afterwards, this time an
elderly medical practitioner who had become familiar with acupuncture. He told
me that the scientific principles behind acupuncture anaesthesia had recently
been brought to light, and that more conventional pain suppression anaesthetics,
such as morphine etc. will no longer be needed in surgical operations.
Furthermore, he continued, patients can be relieved of pain for up to 27 hours
and suffer no side effects. Postoperative progress of the patient also seems far
better than after the use of conventional anaesthetics. In brief, recent
research has shown that when acupuncture needles are applied to what are known
as tsubo in Oriental medicine, the pituitary gland secretes a peptide hormone
called beta-endorphin (which consists of 91 amino acids in a 61 to 91 amino acid
sequence) resulting in a strong pain suppressing effect. The tsubo vary
according to where the operation is to be performed. Three acupuncture needles
are inserted precisely at the required positions, and after 15 to 20 minutes the
desired anaesthetic effect is achieved. Since the anaesthetic agent is an
autogenic anaesthetic produced in the body, there are no undesirable side
effects, and postoperative recovery is rapid. However, the doctor continued to
say that since these tsubo and other facets of acupuncture are not acknowledged
in Western medicine and are not included in university medical courses, this
excellent anaesthetic practice is not generally employed. It dawned on me as I
listened that this anaesthetic action is very similar to the action of my
organic germanium compound. On being given 3 to 4 grams of organic germanium
cancer patients literally writhing in pain have found relief in 15 to 20
minutes. Time and time again, I have witnessed terminal stage cancer patients
find release from their torment as if by magic, and be allowed to finally pass
from this world in peace. Pain is a form of warning passed from the troubled
area to the brain by means of an electric charge relay mechanism along nerve
cells. It is only “signal” reaches the brain that we actually feel pain.
Anesthetics. such as morphine, prevent us from feeling pain by interrupting this
electric charge relay temporarily by chemical action.

Germanium.
on the other hand was initially thought to interfere with the electric charge
relay process due to its semiconductor properties. and this action quite
possibly takes place. However , it also seems reasonable that the introduction
of a pseudo morphine anaesthetic agent called “endorphin is stimulated in the
body by germanium in much the same way as by acupuncture needles. This
proposition is certainly supported by the results of experiments on laboratory
animals using organic germanium. The color and luster of hormone secreting the
thyroid and adrenal glands are considerably improved, while the animals’ hair
becomes glossier, giving the animals a rejuvenated appearance. In clinical
cases, too, germanium has been very effective in the treatment of a number of
diseases caused by adrenaline inadequacies, including enlargement of the
prostate gland, cancer of the breast and uterine cancer, goiter and uterine
mvoma, etc. It would thus appear germanium compound has a kind of
electro-biochemical action quite unlike the effect of conventional
pharmaceuticals. For example, germanium increases the amount of oxygen
transported by haemoglobin in the red blood cells. The supply of oxygen to
tissue cells is thereby increased. resulting in greater cellular activity. This
in turn can be assumed to be responsible for various other biochemical processes
in relation to cell membrane potential. The pseudo morphine agent “endorphin”
referred to earlier is a peptide hormone secreted from the hypothalamus in the
brain, and is thought to be stimulated by the germanium compound. To think that
Oriental medicine that has its origins some 3,000 years ago discovered
anesthetic procedure, which has now been substantiated by modern science, is
exhilarating to say the least! I can only marvel at the wisdom of the ancient
Chinese and the systematic development of their knowledge of medicine.

At present, however, the focus of world attention
has been turned to the “wonder medication ” interferon.
The
existence of this substance was first brought to light more than 20 years ago,
and is considered one of the most significant medical discoveries since
penicillin, particularly where cancer treatment is concerned. However, just what kind of substance interferon
is,
and how it works, remain very difficult questions to answer.

To put it as briefly as possible, when
an infectious virus enters the human body, tissue cells commence to secrete
interferon (a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of about 40,000) to protect
the cells from the viral infection.

In addition, there is also an increase
in the number of macrophages
(one of the leucocytes involved in the
removal of cells) for greater effectiveness against cancer
cells.

Clinical
test with interferon have produced excellent results. So much that
pharmaceutical manufacturers have started to worry that that their more
conventional products will become obsolete. It should be noted here, however,
that interferon is not a new drug – it is a
substance produced in the human body, whose natural healing powers have been
harnessed scientifically.

That
famous doctor Robert Koch is quoted as saying, “The best substances formed
naturally by the human medicines are those body.” It seems he was forecasting
the discovery of interferon, Although was discovered, and its significance
understood, more than 20 years ago, there are several reasons why it has not
been used greatly.

First,
large scale cell cultures are required which are very difficult to grow.
Secondly, since the amount of interferon obtained is very small, little has been
learned about its chemical structure. Although it has been found to be a
glycoprotein, its molecular sequence and its biochemical action in the human
body have still not been studied sufficiently,

Thirdly, nothing is known about how interferon is
produced in the cells, and fourthly, interferon is unbelievably one gram costing
more than $100,000.

At present, this wonder working
substance, interferon, has still not been synthesized in the test
tube.

Only live
cells are capable of its production, and furthermore, the only interferon which
is effective in the human body is that which is produced by human cells.

As the synthesis of interferon is
practically impossible, and there seems little likelihood of any suitable method
for production being developed in the near future, it has been proposed that the
same result might be obtained by somehow inducing the production of interferon
from living cells in the human body.

Consequently, a number of researches have attempted to force the
secretion of interferon by stimulating the cells with various toxic substances.
However, although this method does in fact stimulate the cells to secrete
interferon, the stimulating reagents are invariable toxic, and cannot be used
for medical purposes.

During my
own research, I have often paid attention to matters relating to the electric
charge on cell membranes. Apparently the very nature of cancer cells, for
example, is changed by alterations in the cellular membrane potential. Nobel
Prize winner Prof. Albert SzentGyorgyi has put forward similar ideas based on
electro-biochemical concepts.

My germanium compound is an organic compound
containing atoms of the semiconductor element germanium. The semiconductor
property of the germanium atoms enables this compound to bring about changes in
electric charge (as can be seen in the dehydrogenation and super oxidation
effects.)

From the above suppositions it is postulated that
it is this change in membrane potential of the cancer cells that results in the
stimulation of interferon production.

Supporting
evidence for this postulation is presented in the accompanying diagram.
Throughout this book I have explained the basis of an organic germanium compound
exhibit solely on the basis of an increase in the amount of circulating oxygen
in the body. This explanation, however, is inadequate. To be sure, the
dehydrogenation effect in the body is certainly an advantage in various medical
treatments.

However, with the discovery of the
induced production of such a powerful weapon as interferon in the suppression of
diseases and particularly the elimination of cancer cells.
I
felt an overwhelming sense of conviction that I was moving closer to the
truth.

Modern Western medicine is based on an allopathic
approach (i.e. treating symptoms as each call for attention.)

Cancer resistant agents are typical examples, but these agents involve
undesirable side effects resulting in the considerable recent controversy about
iatrogenic diseases (diseases caused by medical treatment.) I think it would be
quite proper to call interferon a “natural healing substance,” In contrast to
anticancer agents, interferon is produced within the body in order to protect
the body from disease, and it is designed to support life, and does not,
therefore, result in any undesirable side effects in other parts of the body.

Furthermore, my organic germanium
compound, which induces the production of interferon, is
also completely non-toxic and free of side effects. In this sense, it is very
similar to traditional Chinese medicines.

Another
interesting fact which should be considered here is that just as acupuncture
fails to affect some people (i.e., no anaesthetic action) germanium, too, on
rare occasions fails to induce the secretion of any quantity of interferon.
Although the reason is not easy to explain, my observations of clinical cases
where organic germanium has been employed tends to make me believe that this phenomenon is due to acidosis of the blood which
is a result of loss of a proper acid/alkaline balance.

I would
like to state my belief that the induced production and secretion of interferon
by organic germanium, and of endorphin by acupuncture, establishes a scientific
basis for Oriental medicine. Chinese medicinal herbs invariably contain high
levels of germanium. And furthermore, it is also possible that these herbs also
contain other compounds that induce the production of other interferon like
substances in the body.

In acupuncture, stimulation via the
tsubo results in the increased production and secretion of endorphin which in
turn results in a healing effect.

In moxa
cautery treatment, the toxic components resulting from the thermal decomposition
of protein under the scorched portion of skin are passed into the bloodstream,
and subsequently induce the production of interferon in the tissue cells.

Both endorphin and interferon
are types of hormone, each closely related to the other
.
Living beings have been
endowed with these natural healing substancesforself preservation
purposes.

I believe
future medical treatment will be centered around the use of these and similar
substances.

The basic concept is expressed as “Sho” in Oriental
medicine, “Gesamtheit” in German, and “holistic” in English.

On this
basis, the amount of circulating oxygen which is so essential to life is
increased to strengthen the body’s defense against the cause of a disease, and
the production of the powerful weapon interferon is also increased to join in
the fight against the pathogen.

VII. A
Prayer for Germanium

“Friends,
those who touch this touch humanity” Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass. I have
already written thousands of words to describe the efficacy of the germanium
compound and its background, but feel I have not done it full justice. I have
whole-heartedly devoted myself to the study of germanium for close to 30 years.
The historical background I have given with many observations I connected and
various ideas and thoughts that have occurred to me based on these observations.
I am perhaps too eager and too hasty to make public what I have learned about
germanium which I am convinced everyone on would welcome. In my eagerness
perhaps I have written without restraining my own idiosyncrasy before attempting
to undertake out the necessary steps for the legal and social decorum that are
required in publishing novel ideas and unconventional therapeutical means. In
this connection, I recall a story about a chemist who was asked to analyze a
transparent liquid in a test tube to identify it. He immediately made its
analysis and reported that the liquid in question consisted of a large quantity
of water and a tiny quantity of calcium, sodium and potassium salt. He could not
find out that the liquid was actually tears shed by a mother in sorrow. At the
outset, I intended to describe the therapeutical efficacy of germanium.
Gradually, however, I have been led to believe the existence of something in
germanium that cannot be fully explained in terms of science in its present
stage of development, when I see that obstinate diseases for which modern
medicine is powerless are successfully cured by our germanium therapy. Now I
consider that the answer lies in the realm unknowable by science referred to by
Alexis Carrel. I would like to stress the need for scientists, particularly
medical scientists, to free themselves from the shackles of straitjacketed
thought patterns that compel them to be “one dimensional human beings.” and to
enter into meditative thinking of higher dimensions. Physicians tend to depend
on medical treatises that only represent the surface of a mirror, and fail to
see anything through it. All they do is follow what appears on the surface. Such
a mono dimensional conduct will hardly succeed in saving lives. Webster’s
Dictionary defines the word “vision” as “power of perceiving mental images by
sharp prophetic sight or rigorous spirit.” Vision should be applied to the study
of germanium which must be conducted in a more rigorous manner with thinking on
a higher dimensional level than that in other types of research. Only a man who
has been captured by the mysterious charm of germanium can succeed in this
research. The effort involved is precisely the one needed for realizing a
vision. Moreover, there must be careful observation not to overlook any
phenomenon that is encountered by filling the mind with the laws of the great
universe. Over the months and years, I have tested organic germanium compound
conscientiously, and put it out only with absolute proof based on strict
objectivity. In the words of Zen is the expression saitaku doki, which means
that when an egg is at the point of hatching, the mother bird and the chick in
the egg both peck simultaneously to break the shell, a timing and interaction
which demonstrates a marvellous providence in nature. In the same way there is a
mysterious saitaku doki between the sickness and germanium. When we recognize
this wonderful truth and mysterious law in the universe, I believe we can then,
for the first time, really understand germanium. I can only long, night and day,
for germanium therapy to become universally available. I deem it advisable to
treat organic germanium not as a pharmaceutical but as a means of a
therapeutical system which we should build for saving mankind. Germanium has
much in common with Chinese medicine, as I have pointed out earlier, and is in
harmony with the Oriental medicine, which means that “Natural Therapy Will be Perfected With Germanium:

In
closing, I borrow the words of FriedrichSchiller, “The future wavers, but
wavering draws on, the present passes swift as an arrow, and the past sinks into
the silence of eternity.”
