Dennis found a century-old solution that finally solved his problems.
After a week of use, Dennis almost cried. His back pain and acne breakouts had subsided so much that he almost forgot there had been anything wrong. He wanted to purchase more patches to bring back home, but he was told that they were a local ailment that would not be given up to the wider world. But Dennis now knew how to fix his problems, and he vowed to recreate the patches, and even improve on them!
Dennis was introduced to a japanese farmer that comes from a family of generations of doctors.
Once he left the retreat, Dennis came back to the same town where he had met the farmer in a local market and told him the patches' story and how they helped solve Dennis’s problems. The farmer nodded his head and said that a friend of his had made something similar to what Dennis had described.
He then went on to introduce Dennis to Kai Akira, a childhood friend of his.
Kai Akira was an aging Japanese doctor. He possessed wisdom passed through generations, care, patience and love. He knew that for the body to be healed the mind and soul should be taken care of as well.
Kai spent his time carefully picking herbs in the forest and later mixing them like his grandfather and father did before. As Dennis and the local farmer came to visit Kai Akira, there was a peaceful rustling of the leaves in the forest close to his home, a pond with koi fish near his little house, surrounded in serenity and silence. Here, the old man Kai Akira explained to Dennis the idea of a ‘healing’.
The “healing” is a process, a meditation. The herbs get mixed into a powder, powder is added into a bandage for the feet. That bandage is later perfected into a patch by his own children - the patch he calls Nuubu. A simple, natural solution to reduce the effects of stress and toxicity that are associated with fast-paced modern life.
And so, Dennis tried the Nuubu patch, and he discovered that it worked even better than the one that he had tried at the retreat. Together with Kai’s children, Dennis made dozens of prototypes and tested every version. They gave samples to young and older adults who suffered stress and anxiety, and had visible symptoms of a stressful life on their bodies.
