Kampo Medicine is the traditional herbal medicine of Japan with a history of more than 1500 years. Originating in China, Japanese Kampo Medicine developed unique features in Japan, characterized by a refinement and pragmatic reduction of the appication of herbal formulae and the number of herbs.
Clinical indications are a variety of chronic and functional diseased, such as gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, autoimmune diseases, deficiency syndromes, menopausal disorders, and varied problems in oncology and geriatrics.
Today, Kampo Medicine is well integrated into modern health care in Japan. Extensive research has been conducted in basic and clinical research fields, and a standard regarding the quality of herbal medicines has been developed.
