Tokuko's 365 Days of Pep Talk for NMT

Tokuko's 365 Days of Pep Talk for NMT

When you have difficult moments, you may wonder why you are forsaken by the world, however, everything that happens in your life has a meaning. Remind you that your goal is not a complete recovery. The real goal is to not be swayed by sickness. Fulfill yourself by yourself always to find as much gratitude as possible and acquire the ability to truly live life so that you will see a path of happiness along the way you have walked when you look back.

【NOTICE TO READERS】***NMT (No Moisturizing Treatment) is scientifically proved with evidence in Japan for TSW (Topical Steroid Withdrawal) in 1994 by the advocate, Dr. Kenji Sato. The information here is provided by his approval. I have been supporting TSW sufferers as an experiencer on a non-profit basis.*** >>It is worth to try NMT for your TSW symptoms. There are already SO many sufferers who got well/improved all over the world to learn the protocol through my blog 'Tokuko's Room to Feel Uplifted' that has readers in more than 150 countries around the world. If you initiate it, please try to learn it VERY seriously with the blog above, 'NMT Education Group' /'The NMT Healed Club' on Facebook and this blog because there's no translated NMT books except in Japanese. You need to get over very tough process on NMT so your correct knowledge will be required to accomplish it. All healed people made efforts to learn it very hard so making a personal notebook to review is essential to acquire accurate knowledge. Also, in any situation, try to find a trustful doctor to avoid other sickness. The infection also should be diagnosed by doctors definitely and you need to take prescribed medicines immediately in case you get it to not prolong your symptoms.

Some sufferers have asked the question subjected above but if you have the same question, you need to revisit 'Tokuko's Room To Feel Uplifted' and read articles more to obtain the accurate knowledge of NMT (No Moisturizing Treatment).

Since NMT looks simple, everyone tends to think that they have a complete understanding of it, but humans tend to overlook something important after just a few readings. In particular, to achieve NMT, learning what to do and what not to do is very important to get the expected results.

Dr. Kenji Sato
has never encouraged scratching.  You don't need to think that you 'have to' scratch for healing.  Scratching is hard to control so we have to accept that 
it is uncontrollable, meaning, sufferers don't need to regret it after scratching or caregivers shouldn't get upset to see the sufferers are scratching.  Such states of mind affects sufferers' symptoms.  This understanding of TSW is VERY important.  Since Dr. Sato fully knows the sickness, he says, "It is OK to scratch but the last scratch should be gently." 
...You can control the last one.  Right?

For faster healing, if you take NMT, please read, read and read.  What should you read?  Go see the guidance below.

Please remind yourself that you are doing NMT without getting NMT doctors' direct assistance.  YOU need to be a master of NMT and your correct knowledge will be the best supporter for you or your loved one.  To not prolong your symptom with incorrect info, please learn it from the source.

Hang in there.
Healing happens to you too!

Per Dr. Kenji Sato, the main reason to take a shower on NMT (No Moisturizing Treatment) is to avoid infectious diseases diminishing bacteria on your skin.
At the same time, if you take a bath/shower very often, it washes away generated antibacterial substances but not only being lost moisture through the skin

215987To avoid infections, NMT recommends taking a shower once 3 or 4 days or when children get dirty. (Kids love to play outside, sandbox, etc...or tend to touch anything that interests you know and it's normal!). If possible, you can make the interval longer.

There are rumors that sufferers 'have to' avoid a bath for a month, etc..but I've never said it in the past.  The frequency depends on the symptoms, I mean, in case the symptom is severe with ooze, erosion, etc...NMT doctors don't recommend to do it because such wet skin can get infections easier, lose protein, etc....  (Protein is VERY important for the skin and faster healing!)

So parents have to make a decision when children need to take a shower considering the reasons above because NMT doctors are not there.  Also, when your child takes a shower, please don’t forget that the water pressure should be very low.  

Infections should be taken care of by doctors immediately because it prolongs the symptoms.  Don't ask non-professionals like, "Does this look like to get infected?"  It's the doctors' portion to diagnose and to take care of it.  Also, don't forget to cut and file nails often

914106Since children (adults also!) repeats to 'scratch and dry' and the appearance of dried skin doesn't look good during the drying phase on NMT, parents tend to be worried too much misunderstanding as if it got aggravated.  So it is tough mentally for parents to see such symptoms but stay strong.  You are a mother or a father of the loved one.  As long as your child doesn't have infections or other sicknesses, keep air-drying.  (This means you need to get a trustful doctors' support.)
Hope this will be a help for you. 

Hang in there!
Healling happens to your child too!

If you would like to learn NMT, you need to be determined to learn and master it on your own because you are going to do it without NMT doctors there (except for living in Japana).

All successful sufferers with NMT made efforts to 
read provided information very seriously taking time from the source (my blog, 'Tokuko's Room To Feel Uplifted' and this blog 'Tokuko's 365 days of pep talk for NMT') because there are no translated NMT books in the world and the NMT doctors are only in Japan.

Also, due to COVID 19, a lot of lecture meetings in Japan were canceled so I started YouTube channel.  I highly recommend you watch them to get NMT correct knowledge.  I added both English and Japanese subtitles.

For your further understandings, to learn it in the Facebook closed groups is essential. 
Members have to read the
Announcements tab first in the 
'NMT Education Group'. It shows the guidance.  And you can learn the healing process visually in 'The NMT Healed Club'.

world 589071In Dr. Sato's hospital, everybody gets well from TSW within 3 months but as I keep telling sufferers in the world, it is
kind of difficult to do NMT quite the same with inpatients, so it may take longer than them but there are already tons of sufferers who accomplished it within 3 months among serious readers too.

It is up to you
how strict trying to do it for faster healing though I know it depends on your situation to achieve it, of course.  Try to do it as much closer as possible.
For your faster healing with NMT,
YOU' need to be a master in the current world's situation.

To provide NMT doctors' amazing work for world sufferers, I also keep working very hard every day and will keep making efforts for your healing, meaning, I'll be here with you.  You also need to make efforts for your faster healing.

There are many treatments for eczema/atopic dermatitis in the world but unfortunately, human beings still can’t find out the perfect way to heal them because we found out only one etiology, meaning the filaggrin gene

So, you must be wondering what would happen to your original skin problems even if you got over TSW after achieving 'No Steroidal and No Moisturizing Treatment (NMT)' going through the horrible symptoms.


Well, to go straight to the bottom line, even if you got over TSW, your Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema (Original skin problems) would remain. 

However, you'll see the Big difference before and after No Steroidal and No Moisturizing Treatment (NMT).

You might have been diagnosed that you had Atopic Dermatitis or Eczema or something and applied Topical Steroids first, but remember their side effects below;


  • Topical Steroids are highly addictive.
  • Topical Steroids induce various kinds of skin problems.
  • Topical Steroids make your dermatopathy intractable.


So, your original skin problems might not have been such bad without Topical Steroids and the medication might have developed them or induced a myriad of symptoms. 


The thing is, many parts of your eczema that were diagnosed as eczema or atopic dermatitis might not have been them but were side-effects of Topical Steroids.

I mean, you'll see some symptoms were side-effects of Topical Steroids but not your original skin problems after you accomplished 'No Moisturizing Treatment'.

As I mentioned, I have had atopic dermatitis since I was 6 months old but after I recovered from TSW, I realized that atopic dermatitis was not such a horrible skin problem to use immunosuppressants= Steroids/Protopic/Neoral.

And as long as I know, all of us who accomplished 'NMT' were convinced that our skin condition became very well or much better than before.

So, I'd like to say to you guys who are worrying about your original skin problems that everything is going to be much better than when you were applying TS and what is more, your skin is going to be stronger like healthy skin even if you still have original dermatopathy or some skin problems partially. 


Per Dr. Kenji Sato who is the leader against Topical Steroids in Japan, Steroids are exhausted from your body approximately 1 month after you stopped using Topical Steroids in theory

So if you have skin problems like TSW over and over after you exhausted Steroids, I guess the symptom might not be your original skin problems but the remaining side-effect of Topical Steroids.  Your skin itself remembers that you used to use steroids.  This is going to be proof of their inducement and refractory nature.

Hang in there!
Healing happens to you!

Here's one of the great caregivers' reports.



Some thoughts on babies, about solid food, breastmilk, formula.

And some healing photos

It’s created a little bit controversial tonight, since I’m a mum who is breastfeeding my 16 months son and receives a great result from NMT within half year, I’d like to share some of my thoughts and experiences on this. Please do correct me if anything wrong.  And please follow NMT doctor's instructions as strictly as you can, you will have great result!



Firstly, I think breastmilk is still good during NMT, like people mentioned here, for immunity.  Good immune system accelerate healing and reduce the risk of infection.  Also, breastfeeding is a great comfort tool during NMT.  Happier baby, happier mum, faster healing.  Breastmilk has too many other benefits compare to formula, like long chain fatty acids to support brain development, etc.  I believe NMT doctors fully understand and have more knowledges than us, as Tokuko mentioned this.



However, breastmilk has less protein compared to formula.  And we all know protein loss is a problem during TSW for many people, we need to increase protein and fat intake (although breastmilk has higher fat compared to formula).  We also know too much water intake delays recovery.  So, this is the downside of breastmilk, since we can’t reduce water in breastmilk.  If we try to increase protein intake from breastmilk, we increase large amount of water too.  It’s a dilemma here.  On the other hand, it’s easier to control the water volume and plus it has higher protein in formula.  So, for the babies who need to boost their protein level and who hasn’t on solid, switching to formula is a choice.



But it doesn’t mean every NMT baby needs to stop breastfeeding.  That’s why Tokuko mentioned babies can have solid food earlier.  Someone may argue baby under 6 months shouldn’t have solid.  But the reality to this really depends on each baby, someone just can if they are ready.  Tokuko mentioned.  My son started solid on 4 months even we didn't have TSW.
Breastfeeding or not, or when should baby start on solid is really depending on each one’s real situation.



Here are some experiences and thoughts from me and some other breastfeeding mums who are doing NMT currently:
To mums who don’t want to switch to formula, and determined to get benefits from breastmilk for long run and do NMT at the same time:
I would firstly eat more protein and fat and a bunch of nutritional dense vegetables (not too much fruits) myself.



1.  Baby Within 6-month-old or hasn’t on solid: I could switch to a mixed feeding strategy, but maybe majority is formula for a while if the baby lost too much protein (usually sever oozing stage).  I could feed formula first and maybe some bites of breastmilk for comfort and immunity.  I could at the same time pump breastmilk out to maintain milk supply.  I may increase breastmilk and reduce formula when skin is getting better, and maybe baby starts solid already.  Also, I believe sever TSW for such young baby is not too common.
In addtion, 4 months old can start solid if they are ready, first food can be high protein food like meat.  Diet is probably another controversial topic nowadays.  



2.  6-month-old to 1 year old:  Apart from same strategy above, I could feed him only high protein and fat solid food at this stage, which means no carbs from solid, especially during sever oozing stage. If baby have lots of high protein solid and skin is getting better, I may increase breastmilk or switch back to breastmilk.


3.  1 year above:  It’s easy to control protein intake now, and baby needs much less milk.  High protein and fat solid plus breastmilk only or mixed feeding, moderate protein and fat solid plus more formula or normal milk plus some breastmilk or no breastmilk.  There are too many combinations according to skin’s progress.  Just remember dry is better, protein and fat are essential during NMT. If you have time, do a record or digitalise eventing, you can figure out how much water and nutrition your child needs according to different circumstances.



To mums who stop breastfeeding because of NMT or other reasons:
• Although there are so many benefits with breastmilk, but babies can do also well without breastmilk.  Formula gives lots of mums relieves, it’s also easier to count water intake and increase protein level for many babies.

• We always want to give our kids everything, but sometimes we should consider the most important things for different circumstances.  We still can boost baby’s immunity in other ways, like giving them lots of love, letting them play around as excise, a balanced diet, etc.


Last, don’t be too stressful for what we haven’t done enough.  If you have time and energy, you can choose to continue breastfeeding and NMT.  If you don’t, you can try to find helper.  If you don’t have time and helper and want to stop for healing purpose, just stop.  If you have confusion, we have so many people here to help.  If you feel depressed, you can vent into NMT support group or other TSW group, or messaging lots of people here. LOL


Thank Tokuko Kameda again and all the NMT/TSW doctors.


I will add some improvement photos to reassure NMT.  My son is breastfeeding and doing great with NMT.  I probably ask my friend to add her son’s photo later, her son takes formula and heals with NMT too.  We both almost finish this hell within half year!
Wish everyone has a quick and happy healing!


Written by Ms. Joyce Fang



Well, this report above is written by a 'mother' who mastered NMT with my blog Tokuko's Room To Feel Uplifted (English Version) and NMT (No Moisturizing Treatment) Education Group on Facebook.  To experience her child's healing, she wrote and posted this report in the group spontaneously to pay it forward.  I was moved so much by her love to other TSW sufferers/caregivers because this is just what I really wanted 


NMT doctors are limited but there are many more numbers of sufferers than them all over the world...I thought "We must be able to utilize sheer force of numbers...!" 

Even if you have zero NMT doctors in your country, if we assemble our knowledge, the power is going to be bigger than several doctors' one.  Once we put learned knowledge together in the group, a lot of sufferers can trust the information and can help each other...I believed that it would be the only solution without having NMT doctors except Japan.  That is one of the reasons why I established NMT (No Moisturizing Treatment) Education Group.  

Please join the group above answering 3 questions. (Need your agreement definitely to protect group members.)
