Unique place of Kampo (Japanese traditional medicine) in complementary and alternative medicine: a survey of doctors belonging to the regional medical association in Japan



Unique place of Kampo (Japanese traditional medicine) in complementary and alternative medicine: a survey of doctors belonging to the regional medical association in Japan



Tohoku Journal of Experimental Medicine 194(1): 55-63

Therefore, to investigate the relationship among Kampo (Japanese traditional medicine) and other CAM, a survey using a structured, self-administered questionnaire was performed between February and April 1999 for 540 randomly selected doctors of the Kyoto Medical Association (KMA).
