The purpose of this clinical study was done to report the improvement of hepatic encephalopathy after oriental medical treatment (herb-med, acupuncture, moxibustion). We applied Ukieum-ja and Sopungsungi-won to patient who had liver cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy. We examined the Change of CBC, LFT and Clinical Manifestation to evaluate the effectiveness of oriental medical treatment.
