Introduction to the Kuriki method
Heal Tourette's syndrome (tic disorder) and obsessive-compulsive disorder with the Kuriki method.
· Disagreeable local bodily sensations; for example, the chair is too hard, the legs are tired, etc.
· Disagreeable general bodily sensations; for example, the cold winter wind, etc.
· Bodily sensations in the genital area.
When there is one of these disagreeable bodily sensations, another disagreeable bodily sensation appears. The intentionality of the Conscious is diverted to the second sensation, and the compulsion of an absurd movement or act amplifies itself in the foreground of the Conscious. When the patient figured out this pathological mechanism of KV, a long-term treatment begins with a psychoanalyst.
The Kuriki method to
cure Tourette's syndrome (tic disorder)
and obsessive-compulsive disorder
Theory of KV; bodily repression in neurosis
Necessity of abreaction with emotional catharsis
Many people believe that chronic tic, i. e., Tourette syndrome is a mysterious disease that cannot be cured. As having been aware of the therapeutic theory that shows a way to cure tic disorder since a long time ago, the author needed 50 sections to fully describe it with descriptions that would be intelligible for general readers. As writing the texts in seven languages, sentence by sentence, the clarity of sentences led the theory progressively to the clarity of its structure. Although the author cannot describe it more clearly, still there may be parts that would be difficult to understand for some readers. The Kuriki method has two characteristics that make reading difficult. First, as «the structure of this theory» is nothing but «the structure of a disease», which is neurosis, the understanding must be done in the morbid structure of hysteria, incorrect structure. It is a paradox that the correct description of an incorrect structure looks like an incorrect description. Some people who do not recognize that they are trying to understand a morbid structure only in the healthy structure consider the structure of the theory as incorrect. Secondly, the descriptions of the structure of sick mind cannot be understood logically. There is no proof of the theory. The descriptions of the Kuriki method will be read only in the imagination of the readers about unknowable things, without scientific intelligibility.
Diagnosis of tic disorder.
When a small child has started to do a tic movement, the parents should read all 50 sections of the Kuriki method before seeing the doctor, even if they do not agree with the view of this theory. (Of course, the readers have the right not to agree with the Kuriki method without reading it. Tic disorder is a disease that the Unconscious of the parents "needs" as well as the Unconscious of the child, and the Unconscious will be trying to resist the attempt at cure. The cause of the disease is there, behind this resistance. The resistance of tic disorder will prevent unconsciously the reading of the Kuriki method.
There are two reasons why the parents should read this method before seeing the doctor. First, as the act of indicating the tic movement of the child can worsen it, the parents should know that the act of seeing the doctor can cause a worsening, i. e., a possibility of making a transient tic
chronic. Second, while a voluntary movement of tic is very easy to recognize, a diagnosis of tic disorder means a very important diagnosis of the presence or absence of dystonia, epilepsy, autism spectrum disorder (syndrome Asperger) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and, of course, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
The purpose of this method is to cure safely tic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder in a healthy way without medication. Once understood, the theory is very clear and the author tried to describe it in the most simple possible way. The description of a mental structure is not the description of a real thing. Each one of the psychic functions is an expression that the author used in order to describe the idea of the cure, which could have been described in other ways. The author has used some psychoanalytic words that have allowed him to describe the state of neurotic mind. Just as electric circuit is often described with water circuit analogy, psychoanalytic words are used so that the author can easily describe the treatment of pathological mind, and the readers can easily understand it : psychoanalytic words do not reveal the indefinite structure of the human mind.
Tourette's syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder are almost the same disease with almost the same symptoms, which are the appearance of a disagreeable bodily sensation and the absolute necessity to do a precisely predetermined bodily action. The disagreeable bodily sensation, which forces an act, is not unbearably "aching". While it is a compulsion to do a bodily act, this act is not forced by intense pain. The disagreeable mental feeling of compulsion is not something like an unbearable "nausea". A patient has to consciously do a voluntary movement of tic or an act of obsessive-compulsive disorder unwillingly: the acts of neurosis are extremely conscious. In the Kuriki method, the necessity to do a tic movement or an act of obsessive-compulsive disorder is named Absolute-Compulsion. Absolute-Compulsion is a tunnel which has only one exit, which is the execution of a bodily act of which the manner has been precisely predetermined. For a tic movement, the patient is aware of the physical manifestation of the Absolute-Compulsion only, which is colored with disagreeable physical sensation, and he does not see the presence of the transparent framework of the Absolute-Compulsion. For an act of obsessive-compulsive disorder, the patient is conscious of the mental force of the framework of Absolute-Compulsion only, and he does not know the physical sensation of compulsion. That is the reason why tic disorder and OCD look as though having quite different symptoms. The Kuriki method is a way to eliminate the morbid framework of the Absolute-Compulsion.
The patients with PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, who can have Absolute Compulsion, know (too much) obviously the cause of their disease. When a patient with PTSD has an OCD or a tic disorder or both, nobody will wonder why. While the traumatic events are obvious for the patients with PTSD (accident, war, etc.) and these objects of the function of repression surpass the capacity of healthy repression, the objects of repression by a tic disorder or by an OCD of small children are in general daily repeated acts which can be considered as normal ordinary acts. For example, nudity of parents or cutaneous contact could be a very heavy burden for the Unconscious of a little child who might be a little bit Asperger.
The theory of the Kuriki method is the theory of KV. To avoid that a disagreeable bodily thing becomes an object of the Conscious, another disagreeable bodily thing appears and becomes a stronger object of the Conscious; this mechanism is innate. If a child is under the reign of neurosis, in the Unconscious, the libidinal traumatic image is represented by a libidinal body part, such as the genitals, and this body part will be repressed in the mechanism of KV. KV is a coined word in the Kuriki method and stands for «körperliche Verdrängung». The author would have used an English word, but the word existed already in a completely different domain with a completely different meaning. K is the initial of Körperlich, "bodily", and V, Verdrängung, "repression", and it is not Kognitive Verhaltenstherapie at all. This new term was needed to indicate the congenital predisposition that could function as either a tic disorder or an OCD, etc. The treatment of tic disorder and the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder are the treatment of KV, and a tic disorder and an OCD must be able to be treated in the almost same way. If a patient has a tic disorder and an OCD, the symptoms of these two diseases should disappear at the same time. The autistic mechanism of KV can cause also Body-Focused Repetitive Behavior, such as Trichotillomania, Onychophagia, etc. The theory of the Kuriki method is this theory of KV. It is a method to eliminate compulsiveness (absolute necessity) from the KV congenital. After the treatment with emotional catharsis, the KV of the patient will be a KV that has no compulsivity and the Unconscious will no more absolutely need the mechanism of KV.
The Kuriki method considers that neurosis consists of two layers: the upper layer and the lower layer. The lower layer is a hypertrophied mass of disagreeable emotion of Freudian trauma (pathogenic nucleus). The upper layer is the KV (repression of physical disagreeable sensations). In the structure of neurosis, "the existence" of the lower layer is repressed by "the presence" of the top layer. In autism spectrum disorder, the mass of disagreeable libidinal emotion, which has very little spontaneous volatilization, can be in a state of hypertrophy with a mechanical hermeticity.
The patients with tic disorder or OCD must understand that their disagreeable judgment in the Unconscious concerning a repeated event has been made by their own congenital predisposition and not by the behavior itself of a family member. Of course, it would be out of the question, if there were an adult family member who showed his or her genital parts to a small child every day, or who touched directly the body of a small child every day, etc.
Neurosis used to be called «hysteria» at the time of Sigmund Freud, Georges Gille de la Tourette, Jean-Martin Charcot, Eugen Bleuler, Pierre Janet, etc. The symptoms of neurosis are bodily symptoms. Reasoning in the domain of the combination of the Unconscious and the body is required for the understanding of this disease.
Freud could not cure tic disorder.
Freud used the word "repression" as a psychoanalytic term in a very narrow sense. In the theoretical structure of the Unconscious, Freudian repression is a function of the Ego to defend itself against the Id and against the Super-ego. Since the formation of Freudian Super-ego is at the age of five, it cannot be a component of the structure of tic disorder, which starts often at the age of three. There is no opposition between the Super-ego and the Id, and theoretically the Ego is not necessary, so Freudian repression, which is a function of the Ego, is not a component of the structure of tic disorder. For Freud, neurosis is a regression to the fixation in very early childhood, and regression of patients who are currently a very small children of three years old is not theoretical. In Freudian repression, the repressed things are romantic: it is literature.
The Kuriki method
The definition of the word "repression" is very broad in the Kuriki method. Repression is a function not to select objects that should not be selected in the mental activity of the Conscious. Repression is an unconscious function not only to block the Conscience to feel an emotion which the Conscious does not want to feel, but also to block the Conscious to feel a physical sensation which the Conscious does not want to feel. As a first priority, the repression maintains the order in the Unconscious, and the content of the Consciousness will be determined. If a tic disorder of small children is an abnormality of the function of repression, the cause of tic disorder is an abnormality of the mechanism of repression, not due to the
objects of repression, because the autistic predisposition to tic disorder is genetic, therefore congenital. From a pathogenetic point of view, the presence of a mechanism of hysteria is more significant than the content of a trauma. As long as a child has a mechanism of hysteria, especially when there is no disagreeable sentiment, any disagreeable thing can become a trauma for him. The presence of a mechanism of hysteria precedes the content of a trauma. As the hovering of a hummingbird requires continuous beating of the wings, the mechanism of repression must be running constantly. The hysterical symptom of tic disorder is a means of repression. The hysterical symptom is a bodily sensation; i. e., the appearance of abnormal bodily sensation (appearance of tic) and the Absolute Compulsion for the bodily resolution of this bodily sensation (voluntary movement of tic) is a mechanism of repression. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is nothing but a tic disorder, of which the sensation of the appearance of tic is not a muscular sensation, (cutaneous sensation, etc.) [...]
