Traditional Japanese Medicine and Mesothelioma

Traditional Japanese medicine, also known as Kampo, is based on the traditional medicine of China. Unlike traditional Chinese medicine, Japanese medicine is highly regulated and has extensive government oversight. Patients with mesothelioma and other cancers may find relief from pain and other symptoms with the help of traditional Japanese medicine. If you live in a place where Kampo is available, you can integrate it into a comprehensive cancer treatment plan.

Although students of Chinese medicine are given much of the same education as medical doctors in China, the actual preparations they use do not have the same oversight as Japanese medication. Chinese medical preparations often include body parts of endangered animals, nearly driving certain species of seahorse to extinction. In contrast, Japanese medical preparations are tracked by the Japanese government to ensure they pose no risk to consumers.

The Japanese national healthcare system, in addition to paying for Western medicine for Japan’s citizens, also pays for Kampo. Due to this oversight, every preparation allowed by Japanese law has been tested and shown to be effective. Western doctors may be reluctant to use them, however, because they are unfamiliar to Western medicine and untested in the West.

If there are trained practitioners of traditional Japanese Kampo medicine in your area, you can talk to your doctor about integrating their therapies into your overall cancer treatment. Traditional Japanese medicine may be able to relieve many of the symptoms of your disease and treatment program, including pain, nausea, and other ailments.
