"The Japanese Herbal Tradition (Kampo) developed out of the Traditional Chinese Herbal system. Practitioners use the same classical formulas as laid out in the Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue. Nonetheless the Japanese have added exponentially to certain dimensions of the herbal legacy with their own, often original, additions. Fukushin in this light is largely a Japanese practice which in fact many Chinese Practitioners have sought to emulate since the Edo period, as its use has largely disappeared in Mainland China. It thus represents an impressive example of what might be termed the cultural enhancement of Classical Chinese medicine.
Fukushin is Abdominal Diagnosis. It is the physical and methodical palpation of the patient’s abdomen to derive direct, physical evidence and signs. This evidence in turn points directly to the use of specific formula groups. The Abdomen literally “tells” the practitioner what herbs and formulas need to be prescribed. Put another way, if a finding is not present on the abdomen, the use of the associated formula-family is not indicated. Always used in combination with the Traditional Four Examinations, the practice of Fukushin is practical and immediately applicable to any practitioner of Asian Herbal Medicine. It is easy to learn and gives confidence in diagnosis based on concrete physical findings from the patient’s body. Kampo is not well known here in Canada but in Japan it is regulated by the Ministry of Health and is prescribed by MD’s and Pharmacists."
