Isekai Yakkyoku Summary

After losing his little sister to a terminal illness, world-renowned medical researcher Kanji Yakutani gave his all to cure patients by dedicating his life to inventing new medicines. After working himself to death at the age of 31, the former pharmacist wakes up as a 10-year-old boy whose body has been struck by lightning. He discovers that he has been reincarnated in a medieval world as Falma, a son of the prestigious De' Medici family.

In a world where divine arts exist, magic bestowed through the blessings of tutelary deities, Falma realizes that her body harbors the tutelary deity of medicine. The boy was given the mythical divine arts of creation and reduction, as well as the ability to instantly diagnose diseases in people's bodies.

He soon discovers the dire state of medicine in this world: only nobles can afford medical care, which is at best ineffective and at worst harmful. Using modern knowledge and her divine powers, Falma, despite her young age, gradually makes a name for herself as an apothecary and even gains recognition at the imperial court. When he finally acquires his own pharmacy, he sets about pursuing his goal of improving healthcare in the Empire of Saint Fleuve and making it accessible to all.
