The Nishi System is a methodology for the maintenance and recovery of good health that was first introduced in 1927 by Katsuzo Nishi, who at the time was the chief technical engineer for Japan's first subway project, the Tokyo subway.

How to fight diseases

How to fight diseases with success: this is a question more complex and ramifying than e worlds generally suggest. The solution of the vital problem is to be sought not only in the correction of fatal defects present in the modern clinical treatment, but also in the rectification of false views about human life which constitute the theoretical side, or substantial foundation of medical science.
The fundamental problem of medical cure is based on the relation of “ individual and environment”, as is held by the pioneers of the modern medical science. Viewed in this light, it is to be admitted as a fact that each of the patients suffering from one and the same disease requires a different treatment according to disparity of individual constitution and environment. And to such requirement apparently conforms the modern medical tendency for the minutest possible specialization. But in reality the case is entirely reverse
The reason is obvious. Specialization of the modern medical science denotes, by no means the advance into study of the actual relationship between individual and environment, but rather the confinement in the laboratory and theoretical speculation. Awakening to this fundamental fallacy to begin with is quite essential to mastering a secret of disease fighting.
There is still another side of the proposition for practical consideration. If the central idea of disease fighting is eventually to be reduced to be the ever-changing relationship existent between individual and environment, multifarious must be the factors, which, in their aspects incessantly changing in accordance with individuality and environment, demand prescriptions inconceivably multilateral. Thus the question is whether it would ever be possible to meet all such demands, and in the present article the reader may find a most practical key to this question.
A most commonplace but nevertheless significant fact to be remembered is that Nature is as much conspicuous for similarity as for variety. While no disease suffered by each individual is exactly the same, there is always something in common with the rest in every disease. And to discover such points of similarity in diseases is after all to secure a most important lever for working out simplification of medical science.
The author of the present work has for years past been devoting himself to a theory and practice conducive towards such simplification and the conclusion reached by him in consequence is that the most vital part of the physiological function subject to disorder lies in a system comprising the skin, liver, bowels, brain, limbs, lungs, heart, blood vessels and kidneys.
Each of the organs composing the system is interdependent upon the others and in function so centers on the brain and intestines that such system might be reduced into these tow organs, and even into the intestinal duct only.
This fact has long been recognized by Dr.Sansom and many other medical scientists who have all gone on record declaring that with intestines regularly and properly cleaned, man will seldom be attacked by any sort of disease. For such cleansing purpose they recommend 30 to 50 grams of Milk of Magnesia to be taken down once a week in fresh water.
The author has carefully studied the result of such practice as made by no less than scores of thousands cases and is convinced of the truth of those specialists theory as the simplest and most practical secret of disease fighting.
The idea of “individual and environment” which involves so complicate and multilateral problems has thus been condensed into the simple question of the brain and intestines. By thus getting in touch with the nucleus of the whole problem, can a real and effective method of disease fighting be established? The variety and multiplicity of human diseases is by no means of order less mysteries, but it is a mere change of form taking place around the definitely know n center.
The last problem thus left with us is how to solve the central question and how to make the most of the essence of the modern medical science for that purpose.
Such an idea, if introduced into our daily life for its practical ends, may fairly be regarded as having more than half solved the problem under consideration. As for the remaining phase of the problem namely timeserving treatment, skill and experience will give and desired solution.
Lavoisier, father of chemistry, says that life is a chemical function. Sure enough the premise of physiology is chemistry. But chemistry rests on the premise of physics and physics on the premise of dynamics, which in turn is based on astronomy, and o on ands on until it is to be admitted that there is nothing absolutely independent, but that everything is interdependent upon everything else.
This is particularly the case with human beings forming so complicate a social life quite unlike any other creatures. Thus to the physiological factors must be added the social factors in studying a best means of fighting diseases. In other words, the universe, ray, sunlight, air, water, climate, weather, social environments and all other factors must be taken into consideration, so as to harmonize their effects with physiological and biological functions, and herein after all lies a ultimate secret of conquering diseases.
Diseases, excepting congenital complaints, might be classified into four major groups according to their causes, namely: 1.Mechanical 2.Biological 3.Toxicological 4. Deficiency.
For ensuring the constitutions and organs a power strong enough to resist all kinds of bacilli and protect itself from diseases, maladies should be treated from each and all of the following four standpoints: 1.Anatomical 2.Physiological 3.Bacteriological 4. Psychological
In other words, an attempt is to be made to seek regulation of the general body organs in the first place from the physical, next from the chemical, then from the bacteriological, and lastly from the mental points of view. This means as much as to assert that whoever would keep his health strong must be advised to stand on guard always against overwork, overeating, excess of bacilli and overworry.
Few men are ever in and ideally healthy condition. They have in the majority of cases one or more complaints falling under the above given categories. All such complaints generally come from the following four kinds of ptosis.
1.Ptosis of the skeleton
2. Ptosis of the internal organs
3 Ptosis of the body fluids
4.Ptosis of the spirit
Such ptosis arises as follows; debility of skin function weakens the activity of the liver, and thereby reduces the peristaltic movements of the intestines. The inevitable consequence of this is constipation, which lead to distension, rupture or hemorrhage of the cerebral blood vessels
Even if the worst be confined to a mere distension of the cerebral blood-vessels, there will gradually be developed such subjective symptoms as cold limbs or paralysis of limbs, the affected part being mostly the motor nervous system. Cold limbs gradually restrain the proper functions of the lungs, heart, blood-vessels and kidneys each of which organs is interdependent on the other forming as they do, a great organic system in the body. This fact is what medical science affirms most positively.
