Homoeoprophylaxis with ZEN Homoeopathy

ZEN homeopathy

Homeopath TorakoYui discusses her approach to homeopathy, disease and prophylaxis. This is not classical homeopathy. She talks about healing ones Inner Child,studying spirituality and enhancing faith. She views disease as a lesson for the soul.

*This article is quoted and edited from ‘Homoeoprophylaxis with ZEN Homoeopathy, by TorakoYui and guest speakers Trevor Gunn and Cilla Whatcott + UK premier screening ‘The Quest for Real Immunity’ at the School of Pharmacy in London on Sat 21st July 2018.

I have been practising ZEN Homoeopathy, based on Hahnemann’s idea that a practitioner should be a ‘Heilkunst’, since I returned to Japan. In the course of treating intractable diseases in Japan, I realised that diseases are not only present in the body, but in the mind and soul. If we do not treat diseases of the mind and soul as well as diseases of the body, the physical disease will recur. Furthermore, the physical disease will also recur if we do not change our diet and environment.As the situation that Japanese people were facing was really dreadful, I had no choice but to develop ZEN Homoeopathy.

Many Japanese people have lost faith, have been caught up in morals,suppressed their emotions and have a strong sense of self-denial, and so they unquestioningly believe what people in authority say.They believe it without question and this even results in them eating toxins, such as vegetables covered in agricultural chemicals, petroleum-derived food additives, artificial sweeteners, conventional drugs, vaccines and so on.

Hahnemann said that not only homoeopathy, but a combination of approaches was needed to treat disease:to bring about change in patients’ way of living and thinking, their lifestyle, their diet, etc. needed to become natural. He said that we should be real practitioners, or ‘Heilkunst’, who could see these different aspects in an integrated manner.In hiswritings, ‘Chronic Diseases’, he also said that homoeopathy could do nothing for patients who were stuck in their agony and anger.

Human beings consist of soul, mind and body. A disease also exists in each aspect: soul, mind and body.Soul means the object of existence, the purpose of living, values and beliefs.At the core of the human soul, I believe that there is a quality of ‘Loving’, (= forgiving and accepting), where‘everything is virtue’. If a child is blamed for ‘not being a good child’ ‘not being beautiful’ or ‘not being excellent’ by their parents, they believe their parents’ values and begin not to love themselves, based on these values (i.e. think that they are not good, beautiful or excellent). In this way, loving ourselves and others starts to become conditional, and this taint sour souls. Negative values like this could be seen as the result of vice (denial), and are referred to as worldly values. Our souls develop disease by believing these worldly values. Values without denial, however, that have only virtue,are called spiritual values. The key spiritual value is ‘Loving everything is virtue’.

If our souls develop a disease (by believing these worldly values) and encounter obstacles (vice = denial), our response is an emotion. For example, if a child is called ‘a bad child’ ‘ugly’ or ‘stupid’, they respond with emotions of sadness, fear or anger. These emotions are acute diseases of the mind. When the acute emotion is felt, the body is in a state of stress (because we cannot have our own way). If we try to have our own way, the body will develop a sympathetic dominance, as adrenaline is released and the muscles become tense and harden, this obstructs and slows down the circulation and elimination of body wastes stagnates.

However, if a parent forbids a child to express their emotions, and says, ‘Don’t cry!’, ‘Don’t avoid things!’ or ‘Don’t get angry!’, the child suppresses their emotions and the emotions are transferred to the subconscious level as unresolved emotions. These unresolved emotions are called the Inner Child, a chronic disease of the mind. If an acute emotion is suppressed, the stress becomes chronic in the body. They start to develop chronically stiff muscles, stagnation of the circulation and accumulate body waste. If the body waste accumulates above a certain level, this triggers the body’s self-purification mechanisms and causes an acute disease in the form of fever, eruptions, diarrhoea, vomiting or a cough. This is a physical acute disease. This acute disease sometimes happens with the help of a pathogen and that is called an infectious disease. In fact, infectious diseases are a homoeopathic process in nature.

In this way there is a pattern; if our souls are infected by worldly values and develop a disease, a disease of the mind called an ‘emotion’ emerges, but if we suppress the emotion, a disease of the body will occur.Therefore, if you treat only the body, because a patient is presenting a physical symptom, it is nothing more than symptomatic treatment. Of course, homoeopathy is a treatment to heal not only the body but also the mind at the same time: however, homoeopathy has a limit in treating the mind. Inner Child healing that treats the mind and soul is important. We need to feel our emotions intentionally and ask ourselves why we have this emotion.

I have devised and perfected the methods of ZEN Homoeopathy,based on Hahnemann’s teaching, that gives a three-dimensional homoeopathic prescription that treats soul, mind and body as a trinity. It also introduces healing of the Inner Child to relieve mental emotional suffering, guide the person to strengthen their faith and develop positive thinking, to make their original way of thinking more natural (heal their souls).This includes advice on diet and the environment and avoiding taking unnatural substances into the body in order to further develop Hahnemann’s teachings in a way that applies to modern life.

In brief, ZEN Homoeopathy is a way of treating people as a trinity of soul, mind and body.

Homoeopathic three-dimensional prescription

  1. Nosode remedies are used for treating the soul.
  2. As a treatment for the mind, the main remedy that covers the totality is prescribed. The main remedy is normally of plant or animal origin.
  3. Organ support,(that is a combination of mother tinctures, tissue salt remedies and organ remedies),is prescribed for treating the body. Detox remedies are also used to eliminate the harmful effects ofconventional medicines and environmental toxins.

The ZEN Homoeopathy approach is very important for patients who suffer from chronic or intractable diseases.

Other three-dimensional treatment in addition to homoeopathy

  1. As a treatment of the soul, I advise patients to release worldly values by healing their Inner Child,study spirituality and enhance their faith.
  2. For treating the mind, release suppressed emotions.This can be done by healing the Inner Child. For example, if a person feels anger towards their current male boss, I advise them to recognise that the emotion might be a suppressed anger they felt towards their father when they were a child, (Inner Child). They can resonate with the Inner Child by talking to their Inner Child, saying, ‘You wanted to get angry. You can get angry’ and release the emotion by showing their anger to a mental image of their father. Unless the suppressed anger is released, the acute anger will continue to be felt, whenever there is a similar incident.

Valuing yourself means remembering suppressed emotions in the past and listening to and fulfilling whatever you wished for at that time. There is fear or sadness behind anger. The worldly value can be released by forgiving yourself, when your faults are pointed out with the result that your weaknesses are shown.

Please refer to my most recent book ‘The theory and healing practice of the Inner Child’, or the DVD, for the details of healing the Inner Child.

  1. In order to treat physical problems, I give advice on lifestyle that involves having a good, healthy diet, not taking in unnatural substances.

So this is a brief explanation of ZEN Homoeopathy.

With this in mind, I would like to talk about prophylaxis.

As you know, attenuated pathogens are contained in vaccines. They are injected directly into the body.Under normal circumstances, pathogens will be eliminated by white blood cells such as macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer-cells. However, the hypodermic injection of vaccines invades the deep parts of the body without taking the normal route and immunity does not function properly.

To deal with this sudden invasion, antibodies are attached to the pathogen temporarily, as if putting flags onto them,to inactivate the pathogens. This antibody is IgG.Having many IgG in the blood means that the person is more likely to have autoimmune diseases.

Trevor Gunn taughtus this in Japan about fifteen years ago.I am going to tell you the theories I have developed after seeing a number of patients with autism.

If the body is healthy, the pathogen that is combined with IgG will be digested by macrophages at a later stage.However, due to the already lowered and confused immunity because of the unnatural invasion, (by the vaccine), the above process will not be completed.The pathogen with IgG will, therefore,remain in the body.

If the measles virus, for example, invades this body as the virus spreads, what will happen?

As IgG has already combined with the measles virus in the body, IgG will immediately combine with the pathogen to inactivate it and the person will not develop any symptoms.As the body is in a chronic state of the infectious disease, even if a pathogen enters the body at a later date, it cannot develop the acute symptoms of the infectious disease. This is the preventive mechanism of vaccines.

I would like to summarise the principle of prophylaxis by vaccination.

Attenuated pathogens are directly injected into the body.Immunity is lowered and the system cannot eliminate the pathogen.So the IgG antibody is produced and the pathogen is inactivated for the time being: however, immunocompromisation is too extensive for the pathogen to be eliminated.As IgG antibodies are still present, even if the person is infected naturally by a pathogen, the pathogen is inactivated and the person does not develop an illness due to the IgG bond. As it is in a state of chronic disease, the body cannot develop an acute disease.Can you call this prophylaxis? Can it really be called prophylaxis when the body gets into a chronic state of an infectious disease as a result of a vaccine?Vaccinations are not prophylaxis for infection, but merely produce an immediate, chronic state of an infectious disease. Even if the person has an acute symptom, they lose the power to produce the acute symptoms.

If the person regains health and the pathogens with IgG are eliminated, the effect of the vaccine will be lost.This means that, ‘How to create a long term chronic state of an infection.’ becomes important for vaccine development. This means,‘How can IgG antibodies be present for a long time? How can an immunocompromised state be made to last?’ How to cause immunity to be confused for a long time.These points are important for them.In order to confuse and lower immunity in the long term, there are adjuvants in vaccines. A substance to lower immunity (aluminium hydroxide), and mercury as a preservative, are added.

It cannot be called real prophylaxis if it is achieved by sacrificing health. Real prophylaxis can be achieved by making white-blood-cell-driven immunity function properly. This can be achieved by enhancing immunity, i.e. having a healthy soul, mind and body. It is also advisable to allow the body to experience the elimination of foreign bodies and body wastes:in other words, allowing the disease to run its course by producing symptoms is important.

In conventional medicine, it is understood that the higher the antibody titer is, the greater the body’s immunity. However, this is not correct. I have been treating children who suffer from autism, are hyperactive and have ADHD.These are considered to be iatrogenic disease conditions caused by vaccines. I was asked how I could state with certainty that they were caused by vaccines.The answer should be obvious: because there is a principal in homoeopathy where a substance that induces a symptom can remove the symptom. Let’s look at some cases where I prescribed remedies made from vaccines for children who were suffering from autism and epilepsy.

Case study 1

First consultation

26th July 2007

7-year-old boy: Autism & ADHD (He is always singing)

Case taking dialogue

*TY (TorakoYui), M (Patient’s mother), P (Patient)

TY:What did you want to eat during pregnancy? Did you want to eat burgers and things like that?

M:Actually, I had an eating disorder and could not eat well.

TY: So you didn’t want these things, did you?

M: I still wanted to eat burgers and diet coke.

TY: Did you drink coke often?

M: Yeah…Instead of water.

TY: How much a day?

M: More than one litre a day.

The boy developed ADHD and had delayed language development.

He cannot stay still or speak clearly (due to a tongue-tie). He sings songs and is always beating time.


After the prescription on 9 April 2009

*TY (Torako Yui), M (Patient’s mother), P (Patient)

TY: How much paper do you want for drawing?

P: One piece.

TY: Just one?

P: Yes.

TY: Okay, here you are.

M: He has just started horse riding and now people say that he is a different person.

His communication and speech have improved. His comprehension has also improved.

P: Excuse me, can I have some Sellotape?

TY: Sellotape? Yes. Here you are.

P: Thank you.

TY: You are welcome.

M: He now thinks for himself.He also played the piano in a concert.

< Case study 2 >

2-year-old boy

Intractable epilepsy

Cortical dysplasia (Intracranial calcification)

First consultation

24th June 2010

Epileptic fit

During the consultation, he collapsed three times, due to absence seizures with ictal smiles,when he was playing. He could not speak at all. Paralysis in the right leg.



After the prescription on 12 August 2010

*TY (TorakoYui), M (Patient’s mother)

M: He used to have more than a hundred attacks a day, but now less than twenty, on average.

He can show his intention more clearly than before. His medical doctor says that he has improved a great deal.

When he saw a car, he said ‘Buh, Buh’. Perhaps he wanted to say the word ‘car’.

TY: That’s very good. He should develop the ability to do more, from now on.

His expression improved. He became able to communicate with his mother.

* End of Case *

These are only parts of the cases. After I prescribed the combination remedy, made from nine kinds of vaccine remedies, to ninety-nine patients, 91% of them improved. I have seen over a hundred and sixty cases of developmental disorders. I assume that they were damaged by vaccines.

Having said that, I do not completely disapprove of vaccines.

The necessity for vaccines is to cause an immediate chronic state of infectious disease. Some people need them. For example, people in developing countries are undernourished and may die if they develop an acute disease, as they are generally frail. In this case, it is better for them to survive by having a chronic disease through vaccines.

So, some people develop a severe illness due to side effects of vaccines and others remain healthy. What does it mean that people react differently to the same vaccine? It is understandable that the cause of vaccinosis is not only due to the vaccine but also due to the person who develops symptoms. The causes are the Inner Child,which is a disease involving the soul and mind, karma, lack of faith, food issues and conventional drugs.I think that developing vaccinosis is a message from a god to inform the patient that they have reached a point where they can correct their way of living and thinking. It is a chance for them to focus on the cause.If they cannot believe in their self-healing ability, fear of symptoms and childhood diseases may make them hate the diseases and continue to have an unnatural way of thinking, I sometimes think, there is nothing for it but for them to develop vaccinosis. They have no choice but to recognize the wrong idea by developing vaccinosis. That is why unnatural things such as vaccines are necessary in this world, to play the role of a mirror. I think that vaccines exist as a symbol of human thoughtlessness, ignorance, arrogance, dependence, victim mentality, etc.

Since I started to think like this, I stopped opposing vaccines, as, even though they cause serious side effects and suffering, I believe that we learn a lot through the experience of this.

From my clinical experience, the mothers of the hundred and sixty patients who suffered from developmental disorders must have been distressed by caring for their children, but many of them increased their affection for their children every time they overcame a problem and lowered the stakes for happiness.

From a spiritual point of view, I think vaccinosisis often related to karma (patients’ own karma or their parent’s or ancestor’s karma). This means that they develop vaccinosis to clear their karma. I have, therefore,added remedies made from sutras. I would like patients to be supported as much as possible by the spiritual approach.

Some people develop an infectious disease. Others do not. This means that infectious diseases are also not due to pathogens but also due to the people who are infected. As with vaccinosis, developing an infectious disease means a message to review their way of living and thinking and is a chance to focus on the cause. It is a chance to take a fresh approach to their lives.

It is also the same message that they have 1. The Inner Child (a disease of soul and mind), 2. iatrogenic diseases, food-related diseases, environmental diseases and 3. Karma.

I would like to share my hypothesis regarding the origin of pathogens.

I developed a hypothesis that pathogens are organism-ification (becoming a life form) of the Inner Child. As it is an organism, I think it is natural that it should have emotions.

A pathogen has ‘species specificity’. It was originally the case that a pathogen that infected humans would not infect other animals. A pathogen that infects birds should not infect humans.If immunity is extremely diminished, the species border may be crossed and other species may become infected, but this is an exception. It is, therefore, appropriate to think that the pathogen arises from the organism. The Inner Child is an existence that is cut off from the self who has soul, (worldly values), and mind, (emotions). I am assuming pathogens are that Inner Child substantiated as bowel flora.

  • Why did the Inner Child have to become an organism?

In order to recognise yourself as a person who has denied their emotions (Inner Child), you will need a mirror to reflect yourself. A pathogen is a substantiated version of the Inner Child and provides a mirror to reflect you.The Inner Child will be released by overcoming an infectious disease. Pathogens exist for us to release worldly values and suppressed emotions. In other words, infectious diseases are homoeopathy created by nature.

In my experience, the Inner Child will be healed by recovering from infectious diseases, but this works at a rate of about 50 – 70%. The rest of the Inner Child needs to be actively recognised and healed.

This means that if a person does not have an Inner Child that resonates with a pathogen, they should not be infected. Of course, if their immunity is very low, this would not apply.Causes of very low immunity can be iatrogenic diseases including vaccines and food-related diseases.

Having said that, it is difficult for a 5-year-old child to remember the origins of their Inner Child at the age of two years old. I think this is why children develop childhood diseases such as measles, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough, etc, to release not only their own Inner Child but also their parents’ or ancestors’ Inner Child by overcoming the diseases.I think they will be released from the mental emotional yoke that they inherited from their parents and ancestors by developing fevers, eruptions and discharges through childhood diseases. Even a 5-year-old child forms an Inner Child. The Inner Child who is suffering from being judged by worldly values – being sad about not being a good child, as they cannot help their parents,(or for other reasons) – will be released by developing childhood diseases so that they become able to live as their true self for the first time.

Children, especially, show a marked mental development after they develop eruptions and fevers.My son is half Japanese and half English. As I got divorced, he had to leave England to go to Japan with me when he was nine years old. He was always crying, as he could not adapt to life in Japan and missed his father in England. He could not concentrate on studying and did not go to school. He was weak and always prone to illness. I could not show him affection in that state and was always telling him off.One day, he developed a measles-like eruptions and a high fever. His body temperature was nearly 40centigrade for three days. I nursed him desperately when this happened. I gave him Capsicum for nostalgia and the Morbillinum nosode remedy.

When his fever went down, he said ‘Mummy, I will stay with my younger sister until I finish junior high school in Japan, but would like to go back to England when I enrol in high school. I will study hard so that I can go to a British university.’ He is now working as a BBC journalist after he became familiar with both the culture of the U.K. and of Japan.

If I interpret measles from the Inner Child’s point of view, they think they are not valued and they are always told off,when they want to be praised for their efforts. In this situation, they are susceptible to developing measles.

As I learnt that Hahnemann practised homoeoprophylaxis, I made up the YOBO kit (prophylaxis remedy kit) in 2007. It contains 36 remedies, including nosode remedies made from infectious diseases.Japanese people, particularly, use Influenzinum and the Varicella nosode.Some people develop an infectious disease even if they take the homoeoprophylaxis remedy. It is inevitable if their Inner Child has to be released by developing the disease.

My daughter, Emily, who used to behave like a spoilt child and do only what she wanted to do, had to leave me to go to a nursery school when she was four years old. Every morning when she had to leave home, she cried a lot because she had to leave me. She always made a fuss when I left her at nursery school.One Friday, I was called to pick her up, as she had developed chicken pox,with spots all over her body. As I was a single mother and working as a homoeopath, it was a problem for me to cancel my patientsbecause of that,at short notice. When I arrived at the nursery school, she was crying and clung to me. She did not try to walk by herself, demanding a piggyback or to be carried. I had another consultation appointment on the Monday, so I wanted her chicken pox to clear over the weekend and gave her Rhus-tox, Pulsatilla and Varicella, one after the other.Then her spots started to increase and eliminate pus, all over her body. By the Monday, her spots had dried up and she was fine to go back to nursery school. Surprisingly, she went there, saying ‘Bye-bye, Mummy!’, although she used not to like going there! Since that time, she was happy to go to nursery school and became a girl who was full of energy and had a lot of friends.

Let’s look at the Inner Child of Chicken pox (Varicella) and the Herpes zoster virus.Unwillingness, Inactive, Lazy, Desire for rest, Desire for taking the easy course, Desire for avoiding hardship, High rate in benefiting from having an illness. A person like this will tend to develop Chicken pox and Herpes zoster.

I am going to show one special feature of children who developed chicken pox.

This boy is two years old. As soon as his mother had to go back to her work, he developed this state.I thought he was benefiting from having an illness,I prescribed both Varicella and Variolinum.He was cured as the pictures show and became able to say ‘Bye-bye, Mummy.’


This girl is four years old. She had to start going to nursery school.She is the third child and was nearly aborted because her father and grandfather (i.e. male members of the family) demanded that, when her mother was in her third month pregnancy with her.Another symptom she had was ‘Being afraid of men’.

She developed atopic eczema when she had to go to nursery school.

I prescribed Varicella and Variolinum, then she developed measles for the third time.Once we acquire lifetime immunity, we normally do not get the same infectious disease again.However, if it is suppressed by injections or creams, we will be infected over and over again for the disease to run its course. After this girl had chicken pox for the third time, she stopped being afraid of men and became able to go to nursery school, saying ‘Bye-bye, mummy!’

This boy is six years old, but his mother carried him into their consultation with me. He did not want to separate from his mother. When he was told that he had to go to elementary school soon, he developed atopic eczema.As he had had many vaccines, I prescribed him Varicella and Variolinum and also Thuja mother tincture and nine kinds of vaccine remedies. He developed chicken pox for the third time.He became healthy after that, playing basketball, football and swimming. He was able to go to the elementary school, saying ‘Bye-bye, mummy!’ You see, if we have Inner Child (unresolved emotions), we attract diseases with the same mental picture.

With regard to the Influenza virus, it has a mental picture:Desire to exceed others’ achievements and also their own; Desire to be ‘a good person’ that they idealise, with qualities such as Excellence, High ability, Beauty, Strength, being Capable, etc.People who have these mental attitudes develop Influenza.

The Rubella virus also has a ‘Desire to exceed achievements’. They have a mean state of mind, as they want to beat, conform or be hard with a person whose level of ability is close to theirs and who is likely to attack them. They do not want to be outdone by this person.

I developed Rubella when I was twenty-six years old. I was fighting with a man called Mr. Nishimoto in the television company where I worked. He was aiming to become the director. So was I. I think my ability was superior to his, but he was better than me at flattery. So I lost the competition and started to develop eruptions. They appeared in the shape of my bra and panties. I went to hospital and asked what it was. A doctor said ‘Ah, it is Rubella.’ I asked why they came in the shape of my bra and panties. The doctor said ‘Don’t worry. It will spread throughout the body soon.’ The eruptions developed as the doctor said and I forgave Mr. Nishimoto after that.
