Kampo: Ancient Holistic Remedies for the Modern World

Talk
Wednesday, October 25, 6:30 PM

Kampo, or Japanese herbal medicine, has its roots in the traditional Chinese concepts of yin and yang, chi and the five elements. Imported to Japan in the fifth century, the medicinal art of kampothen developed independently, incorporating new methods and making use of indigenous plants. Today, there are over 200 kampo recipes, which are used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Kampo practitioner Dr. Yuko Nozaki, founder of Ido Holistic Center, joins us to reveal the history, practice and uses of these herbal formulas in Japan and the world today. Moderated by herbalist Karen Rose, founder of Sacred Vibes Apothecary. Followed by a reception.
