Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Miss Y.Y. Japanese woman (Twenties) Systemic Lupus Erythematosus  (illness 10 years) In January 1998, all of a sudden I became very sick. I had a very high fever and a severe headache that I had never felt before. This lasted for many days. Actually, I don’t remember those days so much because my symptoms were just very bad.

When I went to the hospital, I was told to be admitted to the hospital immediately. I was inserted an intravenous line and was medicated so much that I didn’t know what they were for.
At first, I was told my disease was cerebral meningitis. Not to mention walking, I could not even stand up nor could move my fingers. I also had difficulty speaking. Then later, my disease was identified. My doctor-in-charge told me it was Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

As I had never heard of such disease, I was very much shocked. But controlling predonine (adrenal cortical hormone) and immune suppressing-drugs should keep me alive. Therefore, I told myself “Can’t be helped.” and kept taking medicine. Predonine, however, had terrible side-effects. My face became like the moon, I lost so much hair, and put on fat around the waistline. I had to wrestle with side-effects all the time, which made me feel depressed.
Then I met Dr. Yoza in September, 2007 for the first time.

When I was treated by him, I felt my whole body get hot, which made me comfortable. Since then I have been treated by Dr. Yoza several times a year.
Whenever I get a treatment from him, my examination result shows better figures. My doctor keeps saying, “Let’s reduce medicine.” At first I took 25mg of predonine and one tablet of an immune suppressing drug a day, but now I take only 7.5mg of predonine and one table of the other medicine once every three days.

Here is great news for me, thanks to Dr. Yoza. After I became ill, I missed my periods (menstrual) for a long time. But my periods came back again. I was really happy.

My doctor-in-charge noticed the change on me and my records, so he asked me what I have been doing. I don’t have to worry about any side-effects of the treatment Dr. Yoza does. Because there is none. His treatment is so gentle and warm to the body as well as to the mind.

I will keep taking his treatment and must get rid of the disease.

Thank you, Doctor Yoza.

【From Dr. Yoza】
Ms YY is said to have developed this disease in her late teens.

She is said to have experienced devastating illness for the past 10 years. Her physical condition, however, has improved so much since I started treating her.

Her regular examination result shows so much improvement every time, that her doctor wonders why.

I am so pleased to find that she now does not have to take so much medicine.

She has also found a new job. She could hardly work before, but now she is going to work as a member of the society.

They say she is living a happy life.

In December, 2008, she came to our office in Hawaii by herself to get treated, which surprised her family and herself.

I am happy to say she is now very fine and contented both physically and mentally.
