People are shocked by the rising costs of medical treatment, by the depersonalization of hospital care, and by headlines reporting the tragic side effects of so-called wonder drugs. (Remember thalidomide ?) The result is a revival of interest in simple, old-fashioned herbal remedies. They are less expensive, easier to use, and far safer than the artificial synthesized chemicals doctors now prescribe. Led by Japan, there is a growing trend toward a "New Medicine", a blend of traditional herbal remedies and modern science. Already, many medical breakthroughs have been achieved, and even more promising ones are making headlines daily. At least a dozen herbs being rigorously tested in modern laboratories are showing promise of conquering cancer.
Everywhere, the World Health Organization is encouraging a wider use of herbs, the oldest and still most promising source of medicine, as the logical answer to the growing health needs of the world's population. In these pages, a leading supplier of herbal remedies tested safely over the centuries introduces the reader to the Japanese art of Kampo, to the basic pharmacopoeia used by its practitioners, and gives actual case histories of surprising cures worked by Kampo doctors consulted by Westerners in Tokyo. Japanese herbal medicine is a subject sorely neglected in current literature.
At last, these pages present the philosophy, art, history, and practice of this highly successful discipline in an easy-to-read style.
