What is Health?

Even if it is not as serious to go see a doctor, there may be a sign coming from your mind and body when you feel somewhat unusual. In such case, although you have yet to be diagnosed, your health might be just one step away from a fall. In Kampo, we treat any symptoms, including so-called "not yet diseased" conditions, and pursuit true health.

The knowledge for a healthy life for both mental and physical state = the Natural Medical Science.

As our society has developed and became more complex, our lifestyle also change its form sometimes in an unusual way without noticing. As a result, imbalance between mind and body occurs, and this manifests as a lifestyle related diseases.

Self-Care = caring for one’s life

In the Natural Medical Science, the concept of self-care literally means to care for one’s life. In other words, this is a theory to make effort into our own body. Self-care focuses on enhancing the natural healing ability of our body to live in a healthier state. There are few important key points when we mention about self-care since there are numerous ways of being healthy for each individual. There is none of us that has the exact same personality, or the same body type. Health status varies from person to person, as well as its causes and feelings. Therefore, in order to maintain your health, weak areas of the body needs improvement, and strong areas of the body stronger, to improve the balance of the body as a whole. Thus, the effective approach varies based on which part of the body, or function, needs to be improved. This may take few approaches; therefore, it is very important to know how to combine them together and to come up with the best solution for each individual.
