Synopsis: This text presents a modern method of administration of classical Chinese herbal formulas that is known as Kampo,one of the oldest medical traditions of Japan. Having a history of effectiveness when administered for chronic degenerative conditions and aging-related diseases, it is among the most commonly prescribed therapies for menopausal complaints. Properly administered, Kampo medicines cause few adverse reactions and can be confidently prescribed for long-term administration. In the West, Kampo is most often encountered in preparations marketed as powdered or granulated formulas, although tablets and individual herb granulations are becoming increasingly available. Even where highly sophisticated pharmaceuticals are generally available, Kampo's popularity has grown, specifically because of its efficacy.
Part One provides historical and background information and an overview of applications of Kampo within the framework of modern medicine. Part Two sets forth the rudiments of Kampo practice, from diagnosis (including techniques of abdominal palpation and pattern identification) to issues surrounding treatment and evaluation. Part Three presents Kampo treatment for climacteric disorders. Each of the eight chapters in this section focuses on one aspect of common problems affecting perimenopausal women. A special feature is the quick-reference table that accompanies each chapter, designed to facilitate the identification of appropriate remedies. Part Four provides a compendium of formulas with information regarding composition, pattern, signs and symptoms, applications, and further notes on usage or contraindications.
From the Publisher: Kampo is more than a traditional medicine imported from China. It has fully-integrated with the Japanese health-care system and has continually accommodated the needs of the Japanese people. In Japan the scientific revolutions of the 17th and 18th centuries encouraged a flood of Western medicines and information. Thus Japanese traditional medicine consistently adapted to the same trends that molded medicine in the West. Although Japan has a highly sophisticated pharmaceutical industry, and no economic need for traditional medicines, Kampo's role in Japan has nonetheless increased. Since the development extract preparations in the 1950's and insurance payments in the 1970's, popular demand has led Japanese physicians to research effective Kampo treatments for chronic degenerative conditions, as well as the comorbidity that attends an aging population. Japanese experience with the integration of traditional medicine can be eminently instructive for the West and conditions associated with the menopause are among those most commonly treated. Kampo's concern with individual variations is specially pertinent because of the variation of symptoms among patients. Thus, many gynecologists in Japan consider Kampo as either substitute or addition to a conventional treatment. Among the 70% of Japanese gynecologists who utilize Kampo, 90% prescribe it for their climacteric patients. This book was born out of the desire to introduce to the West an effective therapy with few side effects that is suitable for the long term administration often association with menopause-related disorders. Dr. Yoshio Shibata's experience is among the most valuable. His career as a radiologist and Kampo practitioner spans four decades and includes service as a founder of the Japanese Society for Oriental medicine. He is the author of research on the prevention of cancer and prepared the largest compendia of prescriptions to have appeared in the history of Kampo, a concise reference to 1,000 formulas compiled from classical sources. Jean Wu investigated Kampo at the Harvard School of Public Health where she received a S.M. in Health Policy and Management.
