Eight family care providers with various disorders showed improvement of their symptoms when treated with yokukansan-based prescriptions. Case1complained of hot flushes, burning sensation and difficulty in concentration; Case 2 of insomnia and back pain; Case 3 of insomnia; Case 4 of irritation and palpitation; Case 5 of anxiety and insomnia; Case 6 of palm eruptions; Case 7 of a painful sensation in the eyes and headache; and Case 8 of neck pain, stiff shoulders, diarrhea, palpitation, insomnia, general fatigue, etc. These diverse symptoms were all considered to be related to “liver” dysfunction of emotions, muscles and eyes, caused by chronic and continuous stress due to their care burden. In Cases 5, 6, 7and 8 the persons whom the care providers were caring for also took the Yokukansan-based prescriptions at the same time as these said care providers did. Instructions for the traditional medicine Yokukansan indicate that “mother and child should take this medicine at the same time”. And since the relationship between a patient and a care provider in the family might be similar to that between child and mother, we applied yokukansan-based prescriptions to these care providers based on traditional instruction.
