Five-Element, Five-Color, Ying & Yang

Organic Vegetable Broth & Brown Rice Tea
Natural Remedy by Dr. Kazu Tateishi (Japan)

Dr. Tateishi's father and brother both died of cancer. And he found himself suffering from cancer of stomach and duodenum. His stomach and duodenum were removed, but the cancer cells had spread to his lungs. He resolved to fight for his life.

He researched, studied and tested over 1,500 kinds of herbs/plants. Eventually he discovered the right combination of ingredients to formulate a unique healing vegetable broth and brown rice tea with its own molecular powder. The vegetables are rich in chlorophyll, amino acids, iron, phosphorous, and calcium, all in a natural form.

He based his broth on the principles of Five-Element theory, the harmonizing balance of the forces of yin and yang, acid and alkaline that engenders health as opposed to the imbalance, which leads to disease.

Five-Element Vegetable Broth

The five elements are wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Because of the balance of the five elements, Heaven and Earth are able to provide life. Each element possesses its own color: green, red, yellow, white and black. These relate to the corresponding internal organs: liver, heart, spleen, lung and kidney. Dr. Tateishi used the essence of the five elements to formulate his vegetable broth. He used the concept of the five different colors as matched to specific vegetables:

Green: Daikon Radish leaves

Red: Carrot

Yellow: Burdock Root

White: Daikon Radish

Black: Shitake Mushroom

Green: Daikon Radish Leaves - Extremely Nutritious

Not only are there countless uses for the daikon radish root, but the nutrient properties of daikon radish leaves are truly amazing. Large amounts of beta-carotene are found in daikon radish leaves. Every 100 gm of daikon radish leaves contains 1400 IU of vitamin A. This is three times more than the 400 IU of vitamin A found in an equivalent amount of broccoli. Daikon radish leaves have 210 mg of Calcium per 100 gm, which are almost 4 times the 55mg of calcium contained in an equivalent amount of spinach. Daikon radish leaves contain ten times more Vitamin C than lemon; three times more iron than liver and eels; 60 % more Vitamin B1 than pickled black beans; and twice as much Vitamin B2 as found in beef. Clearly daikon radish leaves are an amazing source of nutrients. It is a shame that most people don't use them, but, contrary to the will of our creator, regard them as kitchen waste.

Red: Carrots -- Nature's Red Treasure
  1. Carrots are rich in Vitamin C, B1, B2, iron, calcium, magnesium and other trace elements.
  2. The 13,000 IU of Vitamin A found in carrots makes them the richest source of any food for this vitamin
  3. Carrots are beneficial to the well being of eyes and skin and also help strengthen the immune system. In addition, they contain an element that works synergistically with Vitamin C to improve capillary function. This results in an increased flow of blood through the arteries and a reduction in the level of cholesterol in the blood.
  4. Carrots can relieve the symptoms of hypertension and improve heart condition.
  5. Carrots contain an element, which lowers blood sugar levels, thereby making it beneficial to patients suffering from diabetes.
  6. If a certain amount of carrots are consumed everyday, the chances of getting cancer will be reduced.
  7. Carrots can block or slow down the growth of cancer cells, as well as transform them back into healthy cells.
  8. Carrots are one of the best sources for calcium. They are good for healthy teeth and bones.
  9. The Folic acid in carrots helps fight against cancer.
  10. Many people have found that carrot juice increases the flow of milk in lactating mothers. In addition, if carrot juice is consumed during the later period of pregnancy, it will help prevent any postpartum ailments.

Yellow: Burdock Root -- Prevention against cancer and constipation

Burdock is a highly regarded root plant and is very popular in Japan. Here are some facts about burdock:

  1. Prevention against cancer and hardening of the arteries.
  2. Helpful for those afflicted with constipation. Among all root vegetables, burdock has the highest fiber content. The fiber content stimulates acidophilus, which makes it very effective in combating constipation. One of the dietary fibers found in burdock is very effective against fungus.
  3. In recent years, and after considerable research, Japanese researchers have found that burdock is amazingly effective for skin care.

White: Daikon Radish -- Superior Detoxification

Daikon radishes have many digestive enzymes that help prevent excessive stomach acid, gastritis and ulcers. They are especially good for repairing the mucous membrane and enhancing digestion. Each 100 gm of daikon radishes contains 70 mg of Vitamin C, which is twice the amount found in lemon juice. Daikon radishes serve as antioxidants and as such help slow down cellular aging. They ease symptoms of restlessness and help prevent osteoporosis. Calcium serves to maintain the balance between acid and alkaline in the human body. Every 100 gm of daikon radishes contains 140 mg of calcium, or twice the amount of calcium found in spinach. The digestive enzymes present in daikon radish root have powerful detoxifying properties.

Black: Mushrooms -- Nutritious and Health-Preserving

Mushrooms are very nutritious and, most importantly, are useful for health maintenance. Their functions are as follows:

  1. They fortify the immune system by increasing T-cell functions. They assist in the production of antibodies and rejuvenate phagocytes.
  2. The trace elements, such as zinc, found in mushrooms can help rejuvenate thymus gland. The thymus gland multiplies T Cells, which then attack and destroy any invading virus.
  3. The polysaccharides found in mushrooms can promote the production of interferon in the human body to reduce the growth of virus.
  4. Mushrooms protect against 11 different kinds of fungus and regulate the lack of enzymes in human body. Mushrooms contain over 40 different enzymes.
  5. Mushrooms prevent childhood rickets and adult osteoporosis.
  6. Because mushrooms are rich in Vitamin D1, they play a role in increasing the body's absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
  7. Mushrooms contain various vitamins. If consumed regularly, they will prevent any condition which might result from a deficiency in these vitamins.
