Description

<p>In a modern society with many elderly people, dementia patients are increasing dramatically. There are no effective medical treatments yet, and in terms of nursing care, facilities and human resources are in short supply. For that reason, the elderly themselves are increasingly taking care of other elderly people. Kampo medicine has a point of view of mind and body oneness and individualized medicine. This time, kamikihito was effective for dementia with advanced anxiety, insomnia (positive BPSD) and anorexia (negative BPSD). Kamikihito is rooted in improving vigor and digestive function. Therefore, the mental stabilization effect seems to have worked properly. Furthermore, the anti–dementia action of polygala root contained in it restrained the progress of core symptoms such as disorientation and performance dysfunction, and the burden of the family drastically decreased. It is expected that kamikihito will be useful for such dementia in future.</p>
