heartbeat therapy

An approach to the possibility of prenatal treatment: Heartbeat therapy

What is heartbeat therapy?

First, the mother’s heartbeat is recorded for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The recorded heartbeat is then played to the baby twice for a total of five minutes (2x2.5 minutes) via two pads which are placed in two spots on the baby.

What are some of the effects of heartbeat therapy?

While the effects of heartbeat therapy are variable, it has significant effects on children under ten years old. One effect is that the baby begins to fawn on the mother, stimulating the mother’s maternal instincts. Consequently, the mother finds the baby to be cute and therefore becomes more receptive towards the baby. After this, the bond between the baby and the mother becomes stronger and they are able to communicate better. Therefore, the mother enjoys raising the baby more.

Additionally, problems that babies may face, such as crying and eczema, are relieved.

In order to demonstrate the effects of heartbeat therapy, some examples have been provided.

Example 1:

A six month-old boy with a fever (38.9°C), runny nose and cough. After heartbeat therapy, the boy defecated and returned to his normal temperature.

Example 2:
A one year, three month-old boy with a fever one day after being vaccinated. The fever persisted for several days. He had a fever of 38.8°C, suppressed appetite and was crying when he was first examined.
One day after having heartbeat therapy, the boy’s temperature lowered to 37.0°C and after another day, he returned to his usual temperature.

Example 3:
A one year, seven month-old boy with chronic bronchial asthma. After five sessions of heartbeat therapy, the boy’s coughing stopped.

Example 4:
A five year-old girl with severe symptoms of chronic bronchial asthma. As her symptoms were severe, her mother rented the machine to perform the therapy at home each day. Every 2 weeks, they would come to the clinic and the mother would have her heartbeat recorded. After three weeks of therapy, the symptoms disappeared. Six months have passed and this girl's asthma attacks have not yet recurred.

Example 5:

A five year-old girl with autism. When she was first examined, she was screaming, couldn’t defecate or urinate by herself and she possessed the IQ of a one and a half year-old child. The mother rented the machine to perform the therapy at home each day.

A month later, the girl’s screaming became less loud.

Two months later the girl started having conversations while sitting on the mother’s lap.

After three months, the girl began showing signs of curiosity and concentration as well as being able to demonstrate understanding of what others are saying to her.

After half a year, she possessed knowledge of more vocabulary and started to use her initiative to play. She also became clearer while speaking.

After ten months, she stopped screaming and started to become calmer. She also started to become interested in music.

After one year, she possessed stronger self-assertiveness. She is still undergoing heartbeat therapy.

The importance of being alert to the changes in children


During heartbeat therapy, it is extremely important that the mother is alert to the changes in her child--for instance in facial expression. If the mother is not alert to these changes, therapy will take longer to affect the child.

Below are some scenarios which demonstrate the importance of a mother’s alertness to her child while undergoing heartbeat therapy.

Example 1:
An eight-month-old boy with atopic dermatitis. When he was first examined, his face was red and sore, his skin was dry and his kneecaps and elbows had exudates from excessive scratching.

He had heartbeat therapy once or twice a week. After three months his skin became very smooth, as though his atopy had disappeared.

This child’s mother introduced another family to heartbeat therapy. This child was an eight-month-old girl who would cry excessively at night. She had heartbeat therapy three times for the first week. Soon, the girl’s facial expression was generally more positive, but her mother didn’t notice this change. The following week, the child had three rounds of therapy, but the mother said that the baby had not yet stopped crying at night. She didn’t notice the change in the girl’s facial expression. As the mother did not notice the change, she stopped coming to the clinic.

Thirteen months old: The most important period in developing the foundations of the baby’s life

The most important period in raising children is the first thirteen months and fifteen months for boys after giving birth. Growing up safely without getting ill during this period is ideal. It’s the most important time to develop the foundations of the baby’s life and, therefore, the mother has to protect and nurture the baby during this period.  If the baby feels unsafe or uncomfortable, the baby would still be affected by this later. Therefore, ensuring that the baby feels safe and comfortable is crucial. Babies grow when they are protected, so paying attention to the baby is required.

After feeding the baby, he or she should be held on the mother’s left side so as to allow the baby to hear the mother’s heartbeat so that he or she can feel safe and protected.

At eleven to thirteen months, particular attention should be paid to the child’s mental development, as this is the first peak in the development of the child as they start to speak and learn words. Therefore, during this period, meningitis is exceedingly worrying, due to the rapid development of the child’s brain.

It is also an important period to nurture babies. Even though they are unable to understand why what they did is bad, they are able to understand what they are not allowed to do. At the age of three or four, children can understand what is good and what is bad.

Independent period of four to five years old

The age of four to five years old is an independent period. When children show an independent attitude, treating them as individuals is important. Children gain confidence in this period, so it is important that a parent does not complete the work for their child, but rather let him or her complete it him/herself.

Getting children to behave themselves is also important because without this type of upbringing, they cannot express the inner-beauty they have.

Children should be brought up slowly

It’s very natural for parents to hope their children will grow quickly. However, starting to walk and teething at an early age are caused by insufficient nutrition. When the child has adequate nutrition, the ability to walk, and teething develop more slowly.

The later the child starts to talk and to express emotions such as shyness, the more flexibly and more obediently he or she will grow. Children who appear as adults acting childish (e.g. being impulsive or being extremely aggressive when angry) may have become this way by maturing too early, without the chance to develop mentally to match their physical development. Unlike animals, human beings have a variety of emotions such as compassion, calmness and shyness. Therefore, raising children in a healthy manner isn’t about encouraging them to grow quickly or become mature at an early age, but about bringing them up in a fulfilling environment.

Abnormality caused by insufficient nutrition

Insufficient nutrition in children of thirteen months can cause abnormality in the development of the hip joints and the ankles. On the other hand, children with sufficient nutrition will possess thin and fit ankles.

Children should ideally start walking in later stages of development. If the child is forced to walk, the development of the hip joints may be suppressed, which could lead to serious disabilities including those of the brain. While disabilities of the brain may not develop, the baby may still develop displacement of the hip joints which can cause menstrual pain, menstrual irregularities and even infertility later in life. Babies must undertake a series of steps in order to effectively learn how to walk.

The first step is being able to hold their neck straight.

The second step in learning how to walk is being able to roll over.

Crawling is the third step.

When the baby is able to crawl with competence, he or she will begin to attempt standing by holding on to something.

After all of these steps, babies will be able to walk by themselves. Even if the parents want their child to develop rapidly, they must not expedite this natural process artificially.

Advice to raise children

1. Speak to the child and have a conversation.

Some mothers think that there is no point talking to children because they cannot understand what the mother is saying. However, children learn to speak because they understand their parents. Therefore speaking to the child is important.

2. Weighing the child.

Abnormality in children can be determined by weighing the child. Even if the child has a fever, if he or she weighs his or her usual weight, there’s no reason for concern. However if the child appears to weigh less than his or her usual weight, this could indicate a problem. This could be caused by the child hitting his or her head, or feeling insecure or sick. You should not weigh the child on a scale. People’s bodies weigh different when they are nervous or relaxed. Therefore, this weight must be determined by holding the baby.

3. Judge the baby’s health condition by the elasticity of his or her inner thighs.

When the baby has good nutrition, his or her inner thighs become flexible. When the inner thighs are loose when pinched, this indicates a lack of nutrition.

When the baby’s face becomes enlarged, and her or his inner thighs are loose, she or he is taking in too much grain.

When the baby’s inner thighs are hard and his or her face becomes small, he or she is taking in too much meat.

When children take in too much grain during babyhood, they will have little resistance to the outside world. When children take in too much meat, they will become oversensitive.

4. How to distinguish a baby’s crying pattern.

As babies are not able to speak, they cry to express their desires. The three primary cries babies make are:

1        when they are hungry or thirsty

2        when they are want to defecate or urinate

3        when their bodies are placed in uncomfortable positions.

In addition to breastfeeding, babies have to drink water, especially after taking a bath. When the baby is placed in a position which is close to the interior of the womb, he or she may sleep more comfortably.

5. Children’s diseases in the process of development

It’s a regular part of healthy development that children sometimes catch a cold or have diarrhoea. By recovering from the illness on their own, children will become tolerant of these illnesses as adults.

Children who are not exposed to these illnesses do not develop this tolerance, and will find the illnesses more unbearable.

6. Babies’ sleep

Sleep is the most important factor in a baby’s health. Getting babies to sleep deeply is crucial. If the baby doesn’t sleep deeply, no matter how much nutrition he or she is given, he or she will not take in the nutrition.

Also, a room with good sunlight becomes cold at night and the humidity in the room is likely to change. Therefore, the bedroom should be somewhere with no sunlight and a minimal change in temperature throughout the day. Airy rooms and fans are not suitable, either.

7. Drinking water after a bath

Getting children to drink water after taking a bath is important. 

Standing while holding something to walk-kidneys, bones and brain are closely related

A child who stands while balancing themselves on something is less affected by the force of gravity. Children are affected by gravity when they crawl, but, due to developing strength, will be less affected by gravity by standing up. Strengthening the function of the kidneys, the brain and bones will allow them to develop. The kidneys, bones and the brain are closely linked. Standing while holding onto something, therefore, not only allows for the development of muscles but also for the development of the brain and bones. For example:

A healthy girl (she was using the heartbeat of her mother when she was eight months pregnant)who started standing while holding onto something and whose teeth started growing when she was ten months old.

She then changed to the heartbeat of her mother when she was five months pregnant because at around three months of pregnancy, the child’s kidneys start functioning and at around five months of pregnancy the kidneys become complete.

I thought the heartbeat at five months of pregnancy would work very well to strengthen the function of the kidneys as at this stage of pregnancy the kidneys’ functions become complete. The result was excellent. My plan was successful. The girl had changed drastically. Her skin became very smooth as if it had shed. Her face appeared calmer and it looked like she had grown.

Her mother told me that the girl sweat so much the futon got very wet the night after the therapy. The next day she defecated a lot. She became calm. She stopped screaming when she felt uncomfortable. After taking a bath, she stopped crying when her grandmother dried her and she could wait for her mother to get out of the bath. She started wanting to be breastfed more.

This drastic change astonished her husband and mother too.

The mother’s impression when she used her heartbeat from eight months of pregnancy was that the girl became very strong and self-assertive.

After she changed it to her heartbeat from five months of pregnancy, the girl was still self-assertive but calmer.

Something important to note when conducting heartbeat therapy is that the use of the initial heartbeat, recorded during the morning sickness period, makes the child cry even more at night and displeases them.

Dutch famine-the Dutch famine birth cohort study

A few months before WW2 finished, there was a famine in the Netherlands. At the end of November, 1944, in the major western cities of the Netherlands, including Amsterdam, the intake calories for most people was down to around one thousand kilocalories per day.

The next February, in the western part of the Netherlands, this number went down to 580 kilocalories. So severe was the famine that the main food was bread, potato and sugar cubes. Later, it was discovered that this famine had a serious influence on the foetuses of pregnant mothers affected by the famine. A follow-up study is still being conducted, however here are some of the facts of the famine so far.

        Those who were born during the famine were very underweight compared to those who were born before the famine. It was discovered that there is a correlation between being born underweight and weakness in newborn babies.

        Those who experienced the famine from 4 month of foetal development to birth had a significant chance of obesity. This rate is two times high as the rate of those who didn’t experience the famine while in foetal development.

        Those who experienced the famine while in foetal development had a significantly higher risk of developing schizophrenia. The risk of emotional disturbances such as depression increased, too. An increase in antisocial personality disorder in men was also seen.

        The result of the research of the weight of birth targeted only at women showed that those who experienced the famine after seven months in foetal development were born abnormally small. However, those who experienced the famine in the first three months of foetal development were born bigger than average. It is speculated that the reaction which tried to compensate the stress toward the food shortage was happening in the womb.

        After the age of fifty, regardless of gender, those who experienced the famine while in foetal development were more likely to become obese. Hypertension, heart diseases and type 2 diabetes were common too. However, how these people were affected varied based on the period in which they experienced the famine. For example, heart diseases and obesity, as well as an increased incidence of breast cancer, were seen in those who experienced the famine for the first three months of foetal development. Those who experienced the famine at the four to six months of foetal development had a variety of problems in their lungs and kidneys. Impaired glucose tolerance was common in those who experienced the famine three months before being born.

The possibility of prenatal treatment by heartbeat therapy

What I noted about this study is that how the child became affected at birth depends on which period they experienced the famine. For example, heart disease and obesity were related to experiencing the famine in the first three months of foetal development. In addition, those women who experienced the famine during this period were more likely to get breast cancer. Those who experienced the famine from four months to six months had numerous problems in their lungs and kidneys. Impaired glucose tolerance was most prominent in those who experienced the famine for the last three months until they were born. The heart primordium is formed nineteen days after fertilization and the primitive heart is formed after 28 days of fertilization. Therefore, the relation between the first three months of foetal development and heart disease is very convincing. The connection between the fourth to sixth month of foetal development and the kidneys is clear, considering the fact that kidneys start developing from three months of foetal development and the development is completed at around five months. During the eighth month of pregnancy, the subcutaneous fat increases and the foetus become more rounded and by the tenth month the foetus develops white fat and become heavier. Therefore, it makes sense that impaired glucose tolerance was commonly seen in those who experienced the famine around this time. Through the Dutch famine birth cohort study, the evidence heavily suggests that the utero environment has an effect on our health on a long term basis. This is applicable in the type of heartbeat therapy I have developed. Although I haven’t verified yet, I believe heartbeat therapy can be applied not only for children, but also as a treatment for disorders in adults. For instance, using an expectant mother’s heartbeat at eight, nine or ten months pregnancy for a diabetic adult, an expectant mother’s heartbeat at four, five or six months pregnancy for an adult with kidney disease and an expectant mother’s heartbeat in her first trimester of pregnancy for an adult with heart disease. The most important thing in heartbeat therapy is using the mother’s heartbeat at five months before and after foetal development. During this time, the kidneys, which have important roles in oriental medicine, complete development.  In particular, by using it on a child who has yet to begin to stand, using something to balance him or herself, the changes will be so dramatic they will even surprise others. His/her skin will become smooth, he or she will sleep better and will become more energetic. His/her facial expression will become calmer and his/her emotions will become more stable.

More examples of heartbeat therapy

A ten-month-old boy with atopic dermatitis. He had eczema all over his body and some of the parts had leachate. He was quiet, unenergetic and was not self-asserting. Heartbeat therapy was conducted once a week. After the third treatment, he became energetic, laughing a lot, fawning on his mother and became heavier when held. The eczema became better too. Above all, his mother noticed his smile, and she started cradling her son even more. So the child fawned on his mother even more. What I always feel when I conduct heartbeat therapy is that the communication between the mother and the child becomes very strong.

A ten-month-old boy crying excessively at night. He’d been crying at night for three weeks. He would cry every hour causing his mother to become stressed from lack of sleep. Therefore, he started undertaking heartbeat therapy. After the first treatment, the mother realised that the baby started fawning on her more than he used to before. At night, he had a fever (37.7°C) and cried even harder. The next morning, he defecated a large amount. On that day, they came to the clinic. During the therapy, the baby fawned on his mother very much compared to the day before. It was obvious that he became much more energetic than the day before. When being held, he appeared much heavier. The next morning, he defecated a lot again. Heartbeat therapy was conducted the next day again. After the third treatment, he stopped crying at night and slept very well. The cause of the baby’s cry was constipation. After defecating a lot, his cry disappeared. If his mother had used antipyretics to reduce his fever, the result may have been negative. The cause of his fever was constipation, and in these instances it is not advisable to use antipyretics.

A four year, seven-month old boy with pneumonia and a fever of 40°C (both had been present for about two weeks). Heartbeat therapy was conducted five times on him. In two weeks, his temperature went down and he recovered. After around a month, he gained weight and he obviously became healthier. His constitution has changed drastically. He became calmer and more compassionate.

This example shows us that fevers should not be reduced by medicine but being allowed to run their course. It is very important for children’s health. At four to five years old, children are more likely to have a fever and their internal reform is dependent on how they deal with the fever. The ages of four and five are a good chance for internal reform.

A three-month-old boy. His mother said that the shape of her breasts made it impossible for the baby to place his mouth around her nipple to suck milk. Heartbeat therapy was conducted to him on the first visit. When they came back after a week, his mother said that after a few days of heartbeat therapy, he started drinking her breast milk and he started laughing more often than before. However, as his thighs were inflexible, I recommended further treatments with heartbeat therapy.

A one year and three month old boy who is restless. He would always move around and make people around him uncomfortable. His nutritional status was good and but he was a little bit overfed and therefore slightly overweight. He was still being breastfed. He had heartbeat therapy done once a week. After three and a half months the relationship in his family became better. The trigger was in his mother’s change. She used to get her child to take heartbeat therapy at her convenience. However, when she began to feel that she was doing it for her son, she could stop breastfeeding him. As the result, he changed and his grandparents who wouldn’t get close to him started to adore and take care of him. His father also started coming home earlier which made the husband and the wife’s relationships harmonious. The other day, I got a souvenir from the mother. She said “Finally, we could go travelling all together. My son didn’t rage or cry in the plane but sat down quietly and behaved well. We had a very nice time over there. Thank you very much.”

A one year and two month old boy with eczema. He had red, sore eczema on his face, back and belly. He started taking heartbeat therapy, though he barely recovered from the problem. The biggest cause was his mother’s anxiety. Mothers have to have the strength to believe in their children’s power for living and power to grow. By experiencing the process of pregnancy, birth and raising children, women become strong and gentle. I advised her “As long as you are anxious and insecure, your son’s eczema is not going to get better. You have to be the cornerstone of your child’s security, because your son cannot live without you.” “I can understand you. It’s no wonder for mothers to become anxious if your son’s eczema will be better or worse. However that insecurity is making his eczema worse. Children can pick up their mothers’ anxious. As long as you keep raising him with this anxious, he will not get better. Skin is strongly influenced by mental state. Believe in your son. Believe in your son’s strength to grow. Without this strength to believe, bringing up children doesn’t work well.” After around one month since they started heartbeat therapy, she changed drastically. She made up her mind that she is going to protect her son. Then her son changed too. He used to scratch his body, because of his eczema, without any facial expression or vocalisations while waiting for his turn at the waiting room. However, after his mother made up her mind to protect him, he giggled loudly and showed his smile to people around him. Her mother in law would criticize her saying “I healed my son’s eczema with steroid ointment but you are not using it” but he still has eczema on his body which gave her distrust toward using steroids. Even her husband told off her for not using steroid ointment and the house was filled with an uncomfortable atmosphere. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the mother was very anxious and insecure, as she didn’t know what to trust and what to do. However, when she made up her mind, things started going well. The bond in the family became strong and everyone was happy.

妊娠中の心音

妊娠期間は、十月十日と昔からよく言われる。具体的には、およそ270日間であろう。この期間に、母親のお腹の中ではおよそ38億年の生物進化を遡ると言われる。受胎から30日を過ぎてから僅か1週間で、あの1億年を費やした脊椎動物の上陸史を再現する。

270日と38億年、お腹の内と外では時間の流れがまったく違う。妊娠中の子宮空間は我々が存在する三次元空間(実空間)とはまったく違う異空間である。昔ながらの言葉で表現するなら現世(うつしよ)に対して幽世(かくりよ)となる。

何が言いたいかというと、

胎児は、肉体に対して幽体と言える存在ではないだろうか。

そして、生後13ヶ月は胎生期とも見做される。と言うことは、生後13ヶ月までの子供は肉体でもあり幽体でもある摩訶不思議な存在となりはしないだろうか。赤ちゃんと言う所以ではないのか?

このような考えのもと、妊娠中の母親の心音を使って生後13ヶ月の子供に心音治療をおこなってみた。その結果は凄いの一言であった。母親は皆一様に言う。

「子育てがこんなに楽なら、もう一度産んでみたい」

よく笑い、よく寝る。表情がたいへん豊かで、なかには哲学者のような風貌の子までも・・・。

妊娠中の母親の心音は肉体と幽体を繋ぐカギを握っている、これが今の私の実感である。

子供が変われば家庭の中は幸せに

1歳3ヶ月の男児。落ち着きがなくいつも動き回っている。その存在は周囲に不快感を与える。栄養状態はよく、栄養過多で肥り気味。授乳は未だ続けている。心音治療は週1回のペースで3ヶ月2週経過した頃、急に子供はもちろんのこと家庭の中の父親や祖父、祖母の関係が良くなる。家庭の中に幸せのオーラが漂ってきた。

そのきっかけは、母親の心境の変化にあった。これまでの心音治療は母親の都合に合わせて通っていたのが子供のためと思うようになった途端に、断乳がスムーズに出来、子供が変化した。そうすると、これまで子供に近づかなかった祖父や祖母が急に子供を可愛がるようになってきた。父親も早く帰宅するようになり夫婦仲も円満になる。

断乳がなかなかうまくいかないので、母親に私は何度となく忠告した。「今のままではお母さんの身体が壊れますよ。乳首だって伸びて見た目が悪くなりますよ。断乳して早く元の身体に戻ることが大事です。」

母親が子供のためと気付くことによって、子供が一気に変化した。そして、断乳もスムーズに出来、何より笑顔が可愛くなってきた。行動も攻撃的でなくなってきた。心音治療において、まず母親の気付きがある。そして子供が変わっていく。子どもが変われば家庭が変わる。家庭の中すべてが良い方向へ動いていく。悪循環の逆の善循環が形成される。

心音治療によって母子の絆が強くなる。→母親の気付きが起こる。→子供が変わる。→家庭の中が変わる。

生後13ヶ月と妊娠中の母親の心音

生後13ヶ月は胎内が裏返った期間である。つまり、まだ胎内期ということだ。人類の祖先が生物進化の過程で未熟児で生まれ出ることを選択したからである。

生後13ヶ月未満の赤ちゃんがいまだ胎内期であるとするならば、心音治療においては妊娠中の母親の心音の方が産後の母親の心音よりは効果があることが推測される。否、未だかってなかった胎内期治療が可能となるのではないだろうか。

生後2ヶ月の女児の症例を紹介してみる。

このケースは、妊娠7ヶ月の安定期に入った母親の心音を使用した。初診時は、夜は意外とおとなしく寝てくれるが昼に泣いてばかりで寝てくれないと言う。赤ちゃんの栄養状態は余りよくない。(栄養が充実してくると内股に弾力がでてくる。内股をつまんで弛いときは栄養が不足していると判断する。)週に1回の心音治療をおこなう。2回の心音治療で泣く回数が半減する。3回で顔つきが変わって、よく笑うようになる。5回で抱いたときにずっしりとした充実感。ギャーと大きな声で泣かなくなる。6回で首がすわり、栄養が充実してきた。内股に弾力がでてきてプリプリになってきた。

わずか1ヶ月ちょっとで、まさに健康優良児そのものになった!

生後13ヶ月までの赤ちゃんに対して妊娠中の母親の心音を使う心音治療は、胎内期治療そのものではないだろうか。生まれる前の胎内にこそ21世紀が目指す、否目指さなければいけない医療があるのではないだろうか。生まれてからではもう遅いということだ。

大人になってからでは遅い

医者になって30余年。最近、つくづく思う。大人になってからではもう遅い、と。子供とき、もっと具体的に言うならば生後13ヶ月とお産である。ともに胎内との繋がりをもつ。

生後13ヶ月は胎内という内部空間が我々の生きている外部空間へ裏返った期間であり、本来なら胎内に相当する期間である。つまり、人間は早産であり、未熟児として生まれる道を進化の過程で選択したのである。早産でなければ安全に母親の産道を通って生まれ出ることが困難になるからである。他の動物のように母体の中である程度成長してから出産すると、頭が大きくなりすぎかつ頭蓋骨の縫合部硬くなってしまうので産道を通るのが余りにリスクが高くなってしまう。それ故、敢えて未熟児で生まれる道を選んだのである。

胎児は母親のお腹の中でおよそ270日間過す。この期間に生物進化38億年を遡る。つまり、お腹の中はまったく異質な時空場なのだ。その内部構造は、羊水に浮かんでいる胎児と臍の緒、それに胎盤である。胎盤は胎児と母体間の物質交換(酸素や栄養さらには老廃物の排泄など)の場となる臓器である。。また、胎児と母親は胎盤を共有しており、胎盤はまったく別の生命体である胎児と母体を結びつける働きをしている。

胎盤は大地である。胎児という大樹が育つためになくてはならない大地である。その大地は母なる地球の一部である。我々の肉体は母なる地球と重力で直接繋がっている。胎内空間では、羊水という水の中で胎児は臍の緒で母体と直接繋がっている。

胎内空間と何らかの繋がりをもつ生後13ヶ月とお産、ここには我々の未だ知らない生命の秘密が隠されているに違いない。その秘密のベールを剥ぐと、どんな宝の山を発掘出来るであろうか・・・。

アトピーの男児(続々)

(「この子は私が守る」と決断する前、心音治療をおこなって1~2週の間)

1歳過ぎても、子供は喋ることなく、表情も乏しい。顔を赤く、全身にも湿疹。何時も無表情にかきむしっている。夫の母親からは、「私は息子のアトピーをステロイド軟膏で治したのに、嫁の貴女はステロイドも使わないで・・・」と非難される。しかし、夫のからだにはアトピーは残っており、ステロイドで治ってはいないと母親は不信感と不安が・・・。夫からもステロイド軟膏を塗るようにと怒られる。家庭の中は不穏な空気と険悪な雰囲気が漂う。皆に笑顔がない。母親は、わが子と夫と姑の小言の間を右往左往するばかり。子供の症状は一進一退。

「お母さんの不安が続く限り、子供のアトピーは治りませんよ。子供が安心できる拠り所にならないと。子供はお母さんなしには生きていけないのだから。」と、私が数度母親にアドバイスする。

「この子は私が守ります」と母親が決断した途端に、

まず子供が元気になった。よく喋るようになり、よく笑うようになった。夫はわが子の急な変貌に驚くと同時に、子供と話したり、接したりすることが楽しくてたまらなくなくなる。子供を中心にして、夫と姑、母親の関係が円滑になり、笑顔が絶えることがなくなった。

母親の強い決断ひとつで家庭がひとつにまとまり、皆が笑顔で、幸福に満たされるようになった。この引き金を引いたのが心音治療である。心音治療には社会を変える力がある、と私が言う所以である。

アトピーの男児(続)

1歳過ぎのアトピーの男児。あまりの変貌ぶりに感動すら覚える。これまでは、待合室で待っているときはまったくの無表情、無言であったのが、今ではキャッキャと大きな声で笑い、周囲にも笑顔を見せるようになった。

母親が変わると子供がこうも変わってしまうのか・・・。

「この子は私が守ります」

母親のわが子への深い愛情の凄さを、私は垣間見た気がする。よくぞ、ここまで変ったものだ。ここまでよくなればもう週1回でもよいのでは、と私が母親に問いかけると、「いいえ、生後15ヶ月までは週3回通います」と母親は即座に力強く答えた。

男児は、女児の生後13ヶ月に比べると2、3ヶ月長い。男の子は、生後15ヶ月間が子育てで最も大事な期間である。ここを無病で過すと、後は何があっても大丈夫だ。

母親が変わると子供が変わる

1歳過ぎのアトピーの男児が変わった。眼が輝き、その眼に力が出てきた。そのキッカケは母親にあった。

「お母さんの気持ちは分かる。

わが子のアトピーが治るのだろうか、悪くなっていくのではないだろうか、と不安になるのは母親なら当然なことと思う。しかし、その不安が子供のアトピーを悪化させているのです。お母さんの不安はすぐ子供に伝わります。不安を抱いて子育てをしている限り、子供のアトピーはなかなか改善してはいきません。皮膚は心理面に強い影響を受けるからです。

わが子を信じることです。わが子の育つ力を信じることです。信じる強さがなくては子育てはうまくいきません。」

私が母親に言った言葉である。母親は大きく頷いた。2日後に来院。子供の眼から不安が消失していた。母親も笑顔で、力強ささえ感じ取れた。母親は吹っ切れたようだ。子供のアトピーの不安もさることながら、周囲の雑音(例えば、姑の小言や夫の無理解など)による不安が大きかったようである。周囲からああでもない、こうでもないと言われ、目の前のわが子を見てまた右往左往していたようだ。

「この子は私が守ります」

母親は私に力強く言い切った。そして、わが子の眼を見て、「子供の不安は私の不安だったのですね」と言った。当初、母親になりきれていない弱い母親と思っていた私であったが、この変貌には少なからず驚いた。わが子の問題になると母親は本当に強くなる。私は本当に心からうれしくなった。また、ひとつ教えられた。教えてもらった・・・・。
