now prevails worldwide as a major trend in health care, partly as a
remedy for saving government medical costs. On the other hand,
self-medication is also a counteraction to side effects sometimes caused
by the treatments of “traditional” Western medicine. While modern
medical technology is important and crucial to save lives from serious
illnesses or injuries, it is essential to prevent diseases as much as
possible. Under the current environment, where self-medication is
promoted and “alternative” medicine is well accepted, medicinal
herbs can be widely used to enhance the immune system and support the
body’s natural self-healing power to maintain good health.
Wakunaga Pharmaceutical Company, the headquarters in Japan, and Wakunaga
of America Company, the subsidiary in the United States, keenly
recognize the social responsibility of companies engaged in
manufacturing pharmaceuticals and nutritional and herbal supplements.
This responsibility permeates every aspect of Wakunaga’s operations.
