His newest book published in 2021, Inochi Energy Medicine, chronicles Thomas Duckworth’s journey in his studies of Kototama Life Medicine with Masahilo M. Nakazono Osensei, including the years of the Kototama Institute (1977-1986). An introduction to the studies of the Kototama Principle, its expression in Five Element Meridian Therapy and its reflection in the wrist pulses. Includes diagrams, charts and photos guiding diagnostics and therapeutics.
There are many folk medicine recipes in all cultures. I was introduced to Japanese healing in 1973 with recipes that dramatically altered the lives of my family. So much so that I spent the next 15 years studying Far Eastern medicine, especially Japanese acupuncture, with one individual, Masahilo M. Nakazono. My practice began in 1979 and as I relied more and more on my Sensei's folk medicine, I wrote and distributed key recipes for my patients. Finally, I needed to compile this important information into a book for my patients. Writing this book was like going back to class, conjuring memories of presentation and usage of incredibly healing foods; reinforcing the idea that this is information well-worth preserving and sharing.
“Inochi Energy Medicine clarified questions I had about Meridian Therapy and presented me with new questions to consider….The subject is expounded with humor and respect.”
“The book and its teachings bring to light “the radical way” of pulse diagnosis enveloped in a coherent therapy system, deepening the journey into Kototama Life Medicine, and also opening doors to any serious student and practitioner of Eastern medicine regardless of their background.”
“There is magic in these pages, tales of love for humanity, and how we can reach into our own depths to produce the medicine needed now. This is the medicine of our ancestors, alive in all of us.”
