Questions and Answers


1) What is the success rate you’ve seen from this program in curing Psoriasis?

By ointment, the lesions disappear 90 % or more. However, in spite of this remarkable improvement, this is symptomatic treatment because ointment cannot cure your inside problems. Therefore, If you don't take "Erythrocin + Cepharanthin + recommended supplements", sooner or later the symptom recurs. With them, you can be free from psoriasis for a year or more. After that, we cannot predict how long you can be free from psoriasis, because it depends upon so many factors. Especially mental stress aggravates psoriasis very much. But with proper diets and without stress, the recurrence rate is around less than 30%. If you do periodic fasting, the improvement is even much better.


2) How much does the treatment cost?

PS(1) 50 g: ¥4200
PS(1) 100 g: ¥7140
MAS (1) 50 g: ¥4200
MAS (1) 100 g: ¥7140
MA(1) 50 g: ¥4200
Erythrocin (64 tablets for a month): ¥3520
Cepharanthin (120 tablets for a month): ¥3960
Oil Paper (100 sheets): ¥1600
Bio-Three (60 packs for a month): ¥1380
Minimum Shipping Cost: ¥1400 (to Asia), ¥2000 (North America, Australia, New Zealand), ¥2200 (Europe), ¥2400 (South America, Africa)
Consultation: Free, if on the Internet.

One US dollar ($) is 105 ~115 Japanese yens(¥). It depends on the exchange rate of the day. Therefore, for exmaple, PS(1) 50g costs $36.5 ~$40.


3) Do these pills and supplements have to be taken forever?

You don't need to take them forever!!

Erythromycin: please take at least for 12 weeks (about 3 months) .
Cepharanthine: At least for 6 months. Preferably, for 12 months.

But if recurrence occurs, for example, after one year, you would be recommended to take them again for 3 months.

Biotin: 6 months at least.
Probiotics : 6 months at least.
Zinc, Copper, Selenium : For 3 to 6 months.

Omega 3 Unsaturated Fatty Acid, Inositol, Magnesium, Shell Ginger: At least a half year is recommended. But the longer, the better. And these natural supplements are effective not only for "Maintenance Therapy" of psoriasis but also for prevention of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, cerebovascular diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, etc. Personally I've been taking these supplements more than 10 years just to keep general health.


4) Are there any of the small side effects I should be aware of with the two pills -- Erythromycin and Cepharanthine?

Actually I'v never seen any serious side effects caused by these two medicines. But one patient complained of abdominal bloating feeling after taking Cepharanthine. I let him stop taking it. If something bad against your health happened, please stop taking them.

Erythromycin (Erythrocin®)
If you are taking the following drugs, please don't take Erythromycin.
Ergotamine tartrate / anhydrous caffeine / isopropylantipyrine <Clamine> / dihydroergotamine mesylate <Dihidelgot> / Pimozide <Aurapp> / Asunaprevir <Sunbepura>

If you are on one of the following medicines, please consult your doctor if Erythromycin can be taken together with the medicine.
Antiarrhythmic drug/Warfarin potassium/Theophylline/Aminophylline hydrate/Cyclosporine/Crolimus hydrate/Digoxin (Lanoxin)/Felodipine(Plendil,Renedil)/Valproate (VPA) (to treat epilepsy)/Midazolam/Carbamazepine(Tegretol)/Colchicine/Simvastatin/Atorvastatin(Lipitor)/Pitavastatin/Blonanserin/Ebastine/Edoxaban/Zafirlukast/Ritonavir/Cimetidine(Tagamet)/any anti-cancer drugs.

If you are on CCB (Calcium Channel Blocker) such as Amlodipine to lower your blood pressure, it is safer to refrain from taking Erythromycin, because the combination of Amlodipine and Erythromycin may cause unnecessary hypotension.
But Azithromycin which is also a macrolide antibiotic is safe with Amlodipine, and macrolide antibiotics are very important to treat psoriasis. Therefore, if you are currently taking CCB, Azithromycin is recommended, though its efficacy is slightly less than that of Erythromycin.

Patients often ask, "If for three months I have been taking Erythrocin that is antibiotic, are the side effects dangerous?". The answer is "It's generally not dangerous unless you have a serious illness". Erythrocin is given continuously even for one year, for example, in cases like COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Compared with the side effects of steroid pill/immunosuppressant such as MTX (Methotrexate)/biologics such as ustekinumab (Stelara), the side effects of erythromycin is really minimal. But, of course, when you feel something bad with Erythrocin (or Azithromycin), immediately stop it, and consult your doctor.

Cepharanthine (Cepharanthin®)
No contraindications have been observed with Cepharanthine.


5) How much do I need the ointment?

It depends upon the size and number of the plaques or eczema. So, it is not possible to say how much you need. But for mild cases, usually 50 g/month is enough. After the lesion disappeared, you don't need it till relapse.


6) What dietary recommendations do you have?

Vegetarian. But if this diet is difficult, please avoid at least animal meat, milk, cheese, whey.
Prevalence of psoriasis in Japan is 2 to 3 of 1000 people. The incidence is higher in the US, where it occurs in 2 to 3 of 100 people. 10 times more in the US. This disparity in prevalence between Japan and the United States is not based on genetics, but rather on diet.
Up to 150 years ago, before Western civilization culturally impacted the East, Buddhism prohibited meat eating as well as killing animals. Psoriasis was unknown in Japan at that time. After the Western influence was introduced, gradually psoriasis emerged among them, although it is not nearly as prevalent as in the United States and Europe. Psoriasis is, however, relatively rampant in China, because the Chinese eat a fair amount of pork. Psoriasis rarely occurs in strict vegetarians. The best and definitely most economical treatment of psoriasis is to become a vegetarian. If one refrains from eating animal meat at least for three years, doesn't drink cow's milk or eat cheese, psoriatic symptoms will greatly improve naturally without any treatment in approximately three years.

Some patients try " a low carbohydrate diet". It does help some patients, as far as you can limit too much lipid and protein. But if you are on a low carbohydrate diet, you tend to take too much lipid and protein that may worsen psoriasis. As I write in the next page, lipids are connected with psoriasis very much. And if " a high carbohydrate diet" is bad for psoriasis, why do the Japanese suffer less than the Americans? Rice is the staple of Japan and the rice is typical carbohydrate. Of course, too much carbohydrate is bad, but especially too much lipid is really bad for psoriasis. That's why some hyperlipidemia ( high cholesterol ) patients with psoriasis are cured miraculously by cholesterol lowering drugs (statin drugs). Please read the next page.

* Periodic Fasting --- even once in a half year --- brings about really good improvement. It can give a good rest to your intestine. And good for detoxification. There should be excellent clinics in any countries that offer the course of fasting. Please try to find by the Internet. You need a professional instructor for fasting. Please don't do it alone.
