Japanese Herbal Science

Kanpo is the traditional system of herbal health formulas in Japan, an integral part of the Japanese way of health. Over the centuries a unique approach to the use of these herb formulas developed in Japan, an approach found nowhere else in the world—until now.

What is Kanpo?

Kanpo is the modern system of herbal practice in Japan. For over 50 years Japanese scientists and MDs have been applying modern testing methods to validate the use of key traditional herbal formulas, and it is these formulas that comprise the Kanpo system. Many Kanpo formulas date back to 220 AD. This gives a new depth to the phrase “time-tested formulas.” What is unique to Kanpo is the total marriage of science and tradition, and it is this fusion that makes Kanpo the ideal herbal system to address the health challenges of our time.
