Running some risks is unavoidable in this kind of work of collecting mineral on the fields and mountains. Of course, there is a risk of stone's falling suddenly. In Japan, two people who were collecting ore died with it at least . Besides, there are the animal and the plant which cause various harm. There are many risks such as the fierce animal, the poisonous snake, the poisonous insect, the poison plant there. In Japan, recently, a lot of the tick and the bloodsucker has come to increase. Specifically, sometimes the ticks have the germ which causes Lyme disease. If human beings will be bitten by this, they may develop into Lyme disease. Actually, I had developed into Lyme disease, because of having been bitten by the tick while collecting ore. I became a state of being bedridden temporarily but with the herb medicine, I became able to go collecting ore again.
I will write the record of the disease processes.
The bankhead and muck.
Yane mine. Tancho town, Toyooka city, Hyogo plef., Kinki region, Honsyu Island, Japan.
I was bitten by the tick on Yane mine in June, 2008.
The tick of the size which exceeds 1 centimeter which does bloodsucking.
Then, my weight began to decrease. My weight which had been 70㎏ decreased to less than 50㎏ when 2 years have passed since I developed into Lyme disease. Then, as for me, it had weakened the power of my limb. At last, because a left hand and a right leg weren't moved, I went to the hospital. The result of the MRI inspection was cerebral infarction. However, because the cerebral infarction was strange in this symptom, I was hospitalized to the other hospital. At this hospital, my disease was diagnosed as not being cerebral infarction in the MRI inspection of course. However, the doctor said that there was not a disease of such a symptom and I didn't have a treatment even for 1 month. Because, the doctor diagnosed as if I had made a pretense that I had been sick. I could walk with my leg when hospitalized to this hospital but when leaving hospital, I came to need a wheelchair. Reluctantly, I was hospitalized to another hospital.
The young doctor at this hospital said " the disease of this symptom isn't thought of except the lyme disease in Japan " and began a treatment. The treatment was the intravenous drip of the ceftriaxone of the 1st candidacy medicine. For 1 month later leaving hospital, 10 kg of my weight were increasing. However the sick progress was stopped but didn't improve a symptom. After that, the result of my antibody test was positive. However, this treatment wasn't perfect.
This doctor gave me IV drip of ceftriaxone in my vein only for one month. And he asserted ,"You recovered completely!!". And he broke off treatment.
However, because this treatment wasn't perfect, after a while, my disease progressed a little. Therefore, because the young doctor provided a method for the right diagnosis or treatment of diseases, I decided to receive medical treatment at the nearby hospital. However, I did a big mistake. Though I explained a lyme disease, the doctor at this hospital knew nothing, being in the lyme disease,and he didn't understand even how to use of antibiotic. This doctor gave me IV drip of ceftriaxone in my vein only for one week. And he asserted ,"You recovered completely!!". And he broke off treatment.
Of course, after a while, I was carried to the hospital nearby by the ambulance. Both of this hospital and also the doctor did the worst treatment. The physician in charge at this hospital said " it isn't possible to treat the patient until the result would be proved, doing an antibody test ". Then, this doctor didn't give me any medical treatment at all for about 1 month until the test result was proved, although I requires medical care. The result of the antibody test 3 months before could not change. At the very time, I was approximately in a bedridden condition. The application of the penicillin and the tetracycline started but never already improved my symptoms of the disease. Therefore, I consulted a director. He said " I want to make sure of any methods of medical treatment that you like because there are not means to improve your symptoms of the disease any more ". Because I had the knowledge of the Chinese medicine, I hoped for the herb medicine.
As for the clinical trial example, I quoted from "南山堂発行（published by Nanzando） 大塚敬節著(Written by Keisetsu Otsuka) 漢方治療の実際(The actual Chinese medicine treatment)" and I summarized it and I translated it into English,as follows.
The clinical trial example of the Chinese medicine 1.
The patient is the farmer who is well built with dark expression. He said that it wasn't possible to walk because he was with both legs being paralytic since 1 years ago. The doctor diagnosed that he was a spinal cord disease and then he injected him with the penicillin but didn't become good.
I gave this patient a Hachimigan"八味地黄丸". When one month have passed since then, the patient could stand by himself. Then, when 5 months have passed since then, it was possible to ride on the bicycle. One day, this patient were found by the previous physician while this patient was moving by the bicycle. The doctor was surprised to see his fine condition. Then, the doctor asked what treatment I have received. Therefore, the farmer told that he became so good if he drank the Chinese medicine by the diagnosis of the doctor. Several years later, the patient came from the neighboring village of this farmer. Then, because he said that he wanted the same medicine because he was a condition as same as the farmer, I gave Hachimigan. Then, the patient became able to walk with the about 2 month application.
The clinical trial example of the Chinese medicine 2.
The patient who was a woman of 18 years old insisted that her nape on the left side had been painful, and then she felt the right hand had numb soon, about 40 days after.
One doctor diagnosed being neuralgia and the other doctor diagnosed being rheumatism.
In the meantime, the patient felt numbness on the right side of the body and then she couldn't move. Therefore, when she appealed to the doctor about her symptom, the doctor diagnosed being the disease of the spinal cord. And then, when she was hospitalized to a certain hospital, the doctor diagnosed being myelitis. Then, she could neither defecate nor urinate.
Therefore, I gave Hachimigan to her. When about 10 days was passed, she became better and it was possible to urinate by herself. Within about 2 months, the urinating became ordinary and also the numbness of the body improved almost and she became able to even walk.
It is Gosya-Jinkigan "午車腎気丸" that strengthened a walking operation, in addition to take the Chinese medicine of Hachimigan. However, as for Hachimigan and Gosya-Jinkigan, we need note these, because Bushi "附子" which has the side effect is contained in these two herb medicines. In my case, to avoid a side effect, I make the Chinese medicine from Gosha-Jinkigan without Bushi.
However, I don't do complete recovery in this. The disease keeps progressing. Because I am a carrier, my disease keeps progressing. The Chinese medicine is only improving my symptom. However, I was released from a state of being bedridden.
I got the exercise capacity in order to get out for the mineral collection after that.
However, the lyme disease is a really fearful disease. That illness relapses time and again whenever also I am bitten by the tick. And my physical strength is weaken in the ratio of once a year.
The erythema migrans.
I think that my own experience will help the patient who is in the depths of despair about lyme disease a little for their desire.
This photograph is me in the mine exploration.
However, I will return to a former state of being bedridden if I don't receive the Chinese medicine treatment.
That was a moving experience for me that I can walk by my own feet. The moving fact to be able to walk is far more wonderful than being abandoned by doctors and spending the days idly in despair on a bed.
I want to explain the effect of the Chinese medicine to the patients of the lyme disease all over the world.
Life is full of vicissitudes. But Life is not an empty dream.Today is the first day of my future.
Fujii, Wakasa Cho, Mikata District, Fukui Prefecture, Hokuriku Region, Honshu Island, Japan. 藤井鉱山, 福井県三方郡若狭町藤井.
Fujii-mine is a small manganese ore mine in Japan. However, it became famous because it produced some uncommon minerals, Sonolite, Momoiite etc.. By the way, Hanasaka jisan appeared on this mine, too, about 40 years before.
He dug one lode at several places but there was ore only a little. Therefore, he saved dug ore beforehand without selling it. Then, he tried to pretend by using this ore as if there were the big lode .
Then, the victim of this fraud will have appeared. When I came about 40 years before, there were coming-out mine facilities which were made with new tree but it was hardly used. Thinking from this thing, the flower seemed to have succeeded in the fraud. Of course, the amateur victim has no choice but to ask a flower to mine. In this, "Hanasaka jisan" is most profitable setting. However, even if it sets about the mining, it doesn't deal with the lode.
The victim may have noticed being immediately deceived. Therefore, the facilities may have been left without being hardly used. There were not many profits of " Hanasaka jisan ".
Then, the victim, too, may not had big damage. Because, the victim noticed being deceived in the early days. However, the scholar was recording even this camouflaged tunnel. I thought that " Hanasaka jisan " succeeded in deceiving even a scholar was excellent. This case was the complete victory of "Hanasaka jisan". Then, another successful man was mineral collectors.
Maizuru-mine "舞鶴鉱山" was an old copper bearing ores small mountain and was mined from the Edo period(1603~1868) to Meiji era(1868~1912).
Uene, Mizuru city, Kyoto pref., Kinki region, Honshu Island, Japan.
I think that the result will come out immediately.
Hanasaka jisan is the person who appears on the old tale in Japan and is the person of the legend to have made withered trees blossom with ash.
There was Isanago-mine which produces Pegmatite which is ore at feldspar and silica. However, because it was poor-quality ore, this small mine did bankruptcy immediately. Then, this was repeated several times. And then, the local people calls this mine The mountain which abandons money. Then, for tens of years, no one showed an interest but at last, the victim of the fraud appeared about 40 years before from now. This victim employed an old chairman in the ceramic industry institute at the counsellor and made him investigate this mine. However, this consultant hardly knew mining-engineering.
Then, because it found the outcrop of several small Pegumatite, investigating a tens-of square-kilometer range, it concluded that all of them are the part of the huge ore-body and he said that this was a maximum big mine in the world. That is, Hanasaka jisan to have made withered trees blossom at the dead mine was this consultant. Therefore, the pleased victim requested this old person to do a mining guide but he was the amateur, the mining didn't move ahead easily.
However, I discovered Thortveitite from dug stone. Moreover, it produced some minerals which were uncommon kind. The mineral collectors were glad about this case greatly.
However, because the victim could not sell ore, he didn't have a profit at all. Conversely, he had many development funds demanded from the con man. He was angry at last and searched the better mine consultant.
This consultant said that such a big mine must build mine facilities at first. The victim invested the last remaining fund as told, and thought that he could make a profit if ores came out. Then, they made a lodge and place to pile the ores, and finally began mining more. The matter of course, they had gone bankrupt without being able to sell dug ore, too. As expected, any flowers didn't bloom at the withered trees .
The place to pile the ores. At present, a lodge isn't left at all. Then, they set about the mining.
I call "the mine operator who is a con man" "Hanasaka jisan" in Japan. Hanasaka jisan means the old man who made withered trees blossom. That is, the mine operator camouflages the poor mine as if it were the big lodes.
Fukuchiyama city, Kyoto pref., Kinki region, Honshu Island, Japan.
Here was Houmanji-mine whose name seems to be a big mine really, meaning at the temple which was filled with the treasures and it developed in the middle of Meiji era (1868 ~ 1912). However, contrary to the name, there was only a poor lode of meager resources which were full of bad ores on this mine. Therefore, the mine master thought of the way of selling this mine at the high value. Then, he offered this mine for sale, camouflaging this poor mine by strewing "high quality ores of the other mine" at this tunnel. Then, "the big businesses that was deceived in this method" is the NKK Corp. mining industry .
Then, the mining development started. Here is a mine residential area trace. Then, the small village became the big town in which 500 people live. The electric light burned in the village which doesn't have electricity. Then, the shop which sells liquor and police substation were built. And, they tried to build an elementary school.
Then, it gave the villager damage. The pipe is the one to send the water which contains pollutant produced in the copper mining process. The pipe is the one to send the water which contains pollutant produced in the copper mining process to the treatment plant.
Hanasaka jisan which came out to a Japanese old tale made withered trees blossom and was the good old man who delighted everybody.
When I visited the seashore in Niigata Prefecture Teradomari to examine the origin of Glendonite, I found Glendonite which changed to marcasite.
On the seashore, this is wet with seawater but however, this isn't hydrolyzation. But, when making a specimen, it collapses after a while. I noticed that this was not hydrolyzation and the dryness is cause.
Pyrite which contains marcasite.
Hinominami, Gifu Prefecture Gifu-city, Chubu Region, Honshu Island,Japan.
Nikkoji-pass, Urake, Kumihama, Kyotango-city, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki Region, Honshu Island,Japan.
I keep the good condition of all marcasite with a chemical action called hydration. In this method, at the first time, more than 10 years passed while the condition is unchanged and marcasite isn't still resolving.
Anyway, I think that it must not make marcasite dry up.
I am studying English now.
In Muro,Fukuchiyama City, chalcopyrite seems to produce. Then,I went there to examine selfishly. Actually, I knew that here was Hohfu-mine.
This is a stockyard.
After all, the executive made facilities but I think that ore didn't come out. Then, someone will have suffered a big loss, and oppositely there was a person who made a big profit. I call this " Hanasakajijii ". This is " it makes a flower bloom at the dead tree " to mean.
