Unani Tibb (‘Unani’ Greek), (Tibb- from the Arab word meaning medicine), Tibb is also known as ‘Western Holistic Medicine’, ‘Greco-Arabic Medicine,’ or ‘Unani Medicine’.
Greek Medicine (Unani-Tibb), originated in Greece almost 2500 years ago, is a traditional system of medicine based on the teachings of Hippocrates (known as the Father of Western medicine), Galen (1st century prominent Greek physician and surgeon) and Ibn Sina (Avicenna – regarded as one of the most significant thinkers and writers in medicine and author of the most comprehensive medical text written – The Canon of Medicine).
From the teachings of Greek Medicine (Unani-Tibb), we learn that as individuals we must look after ourselves according to our temperaments or constitution, aiming to keep our bodies in a state of balance and in doing so we are more able to counter the effects of disease.
Unani Tibb is a total system of healthcare, based on the original principles of medicine practiced by Hippocrates, Galen and Ibn Sina (Avicenna) the founders of present day medicine. It includes the basic principles of modern clinical science, embracing both its theory and practice. Tibb recognizes the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual origins of both health and illness. It promotes the early diagnosis of possible predispositions to diseases, well before physical symptoms appear. This prevents these diseases from appearing in a more severe form. Thereafter, treatment is integrative – combining various therapies in response to specific needs. Tibb embraces a whole new way of looking at the body. It considers our health to be the result of a natural, harmonious balance. It believes that our bodies have a way of finding the path back to health. Healing comes from within. Recognition of this inherent wisdom to self-healing is essential in the treatment of disease and maintenance of health.
It is a comprehensive medical system, which meticulously deals with the various states of health and disease. It provides promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative healthcare. The fundamentals, diagnosis and treatment modalities of the system are based on scientific principles and holistic concepts of health and healing. Accordingly, it considers individual in relation to his environment and stresses on health of body, mind and soul. Temperament of a patient is given great importance in diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Temperament is also taken into consideration for identifying the most suitable diet and lifestyle for promoting the health of a particular individual, in spite of continuous neglect, this healing art is not only surviving but also complimenting other systems of medicine.
What Is the Temperament
Each Individual is made up of a complex and unique balance of humors (blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile). This delicate balance affects the individual on 4 levels: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. It also affects the individual’s predisposition to a particular dis-ease. It follows that, when thrown out of balance due to our lifestyles, our bodies will be in pain and/or develop a variety of ailments/diseases. Since every person reacts differently and has a unique temperament, an individual’s health must be assessed and addressed by the Practitioner, holistic, in terms of the six lifestyle factors.
Unani Tibb is presently practiced in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri lanka, Nepal, China, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, Indonesia, Central Asian and Middle Eastern Countries. In India the system has been developed scientifically, nurtured and systematically integrated into healthcare delivery system over the years. Unani system of medicine also benefited from the native medical systems in vogue at the time in various parts of Central Asia. That is why this system is known, in different parts of the world, with different names such as Greco-Arab Medicine, Ionian Medicine, Arab Medicine, Islamic Medicine, Traditional Medicine, Oriental Medicine etc.
Six Lifestyle Factors
Food & Drink - Greek Medicine considers food to be the best medicine. Hippocrates is known to have said, ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food’.
Digestion & Elimination - Poor digestion and elimination puts strain on the body and causes an accumulation of toxins. Alternatively, excessive elimination will drain the body.
Environment Air & Breathing - The air we breathe affects us daily and so the purer the air the better. In addition to this, whether we are breathing correctly will also affect us.
Movement & Rest - Controlled, regular and suitable physical exercise is vital in maintaining good health. Exercise should be chosen based on the suitability for the individual’s body type and needs.
Sleep & Wakefulness - Our bodies recover from daily stresses during sleep. It is a time for repairing, strengthening, rejuvenating, and healing. As with all things, balance is important. Individual’s needs vary, too much sleep can also be harmful.
Emotions - Studies have shown that our emotional state impacts directly on our health. Unani Tabb helps us understand how to recognize and moderate the impact of emotional imbalance.
