Gold is a rare and precious metal and is highly valued in most people’s estimation. A gold crown is worn by royalty, and a gold medal is the highest award one can receive in a competition. In the East or the West, past or present, human beings have always desired to have gold. For this reason, gold is considered to be the finest material for metal arts and the value of gold is also used as the monetary standard in many countries around the world.
As far as healthcare is concerned, gold is also said to be beneficial. There is an old saying that a gold tooth is better than a tonic. It is probable that this saying was made up by someone who felt healthier after getting a gold tooth put in. Gold also does not change or rust. Therefore, it is only natural for gold to always be considered as beneficial.
If it were said that gold can be poisonous, or that one can contract a disease from touching gold, such statements would not gain agreement. Nevertheless, it is certain that gold can be poisonous to some people.
The theory of eight constitutions states that gold can be a fearful poison to the pulmotonia constitution. This theory was presented in 1965 when the Eight Constitutional Medicine was presented for the first time at an international conference. Since that time, I have informed pulmotonia individuals of this fact. As a result, many pulmotonia individuals who had diseases with an unknown cause were healed after they got their gold teeth removed. This caused people to realize more and more how poisonous gold could actually be.

About 15 years ago, a woman brought her daughter, a junior high student, to my clinic. The girl’s left cheekbone was bulging out, but it did not seem to be swollen, and the color was the same as the right cheekbone. The woman said that all of a sudden her daughter’s left cheekbone started to look different. It was growing bigger and bigger, but the daughter did not complain about any pain. The woman took her daughter to a few doctors, but they could not identify the cause of the problem. They merely told her to wait and see. I would have had to say the same thing to her, but the girl was found to be an individual with the pulmotonia constitution. When I took a look inside her mouth, I found three gold teeth. Her mother also recalled that her daughter's cheekbone began to bulge out after she got her gold teeth. I told the mother to take her daughter to a dentist and have him take out the gold teeth. But their dentist would not do it, so I had to take her to a dentist I was acquainted with. After the surgery, I brought her to my office and performed a simple detoxifying treatment. Two days later her cheekbone was fully recovered to a normal condition.
Another illustration involves a Japanese couple who visited me from Tokyo seven years ago. Although the woman looked healthy and had no particular medical history, she felt that her mouth had become increasingly dry. She felt as if the inside of her mouth and her throat were drying up. She visited all the well-known hospitals and still could not find the cause of her condition. This symptom was spreading throughout her body and she was complaining that she felt like she might die. After I found out that she was an individual with the pulmotonia constitution, I asked her about the condition of her teeth; all her upper and lower teeth were capped with gold. I explained to her how gold teeth could negatively affect pulmotonia individuals, and she went back to Tokyo to get her gold teeth removed. But no dentist in Tokyo would remove her gold caps, so she had to go back to her hometown and ask one of her old friends who was a dentist to do it. Later on, she came all the way from Japan to visit me again to inform me that she was healed by the time she had two thirds of her gold teeth removed.
The third story is about a famous table tennis player during the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. She visited me a month before the Games started and said that she would faint every time she went to the training room to practice. Her doctor diagnosed her with a weak liver and told her to rest and take medications, but even after she tried to follow the doctor’s instructions, she still experienced dizziness and could not practice well. I was worried that there would not be enough time to help her before the Games began. When I examined her, I found that she was an individual with the pulmotonia constitution. I asked her whether she had any gold teeth, and she said that she had three. She seemed to have a hunch that her dizziness had something to do with her gold teeth. Luckily, her dentist took out all her gold teeth at her request, and she could resume her training. Eventually she won a gold medal at the Games.
These cases prove that gold has a poisonous effect on pulmotonia individuals. However, it is well-known that gold can help some individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, even though it can have bad side effects on others. Then why is gold poisonous to pulmotonia individuals and medicinal to others?
The reason is that gold causes an imbalance among the organs of pulmotonia individuals, who have naturally strong lungs, by causing their lungs to be even stronger. Gold also helps to reduce the imbalance among the organs of other constitutions that are characterized by weak lungs, and gold helps to cure diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Hepatonia individuals, who have weak lungs by birth, have a strong liver. This constitution shows a different reaction to gold.

One day, a lawyer’s young wife, who had been suffering from severe rheumatoid arthritis, came to see me after having visited various clinics. Since she was an individual with the hepatonia constitution, I recommended that she receive injections of gold. Fortunately, she found a doctor who gave people gold injections, and she was able to be treated by him. After half a year she came to visit me and told me that she was completely healed through receiving the gold injections. There are also more cases of other hepatonia patients who went to the same doctor to get gold injections. The injections had a favorable effect on them. But I heard that the doctor discontinued the injections after his supply of gold ran out, probably thinking that to use gold injections was too dangerous.
Gold is definitely a precious metal to the hepatonia constitution, but it is poisonous to the pulmotonia constitution. Cholecystonia and pancreotonia fall into the same category as hepatonia, although individuals with these constitutions would not receive as much benefit from gold. Colonotonia, gastrotonia, and vesicotonia are in the same category as pulmotonia, even though individuals with these constitutions may not have such a strong negative reaction to gold.
