Why Natural Health?

The unhealthy lifestyle that most people lead causes poor health, poverty and frustration. Public healthcare is in crisis. Chronic diseases are causing millions of deaths yearly, as well as sabotaging quality of life for hundreds of millions more. 

A solution to these ongoing crises? A wisdom-based, time-tested and living tradition of healthcare and medicine - Unani Tibb. From this perspective, true health is the result of human beings living in a state of wholeness and balance by returning to the natural order.

Tibb is an Arabic word which literally means “nature”. It is a tradition of healthcare and medicine whose synthesis was in the crucible of the Middle East, and integrates elements from Egypt, India, China and Classical Greece (in Arabic, the word Unani means 'Greek'). 

Some of the most illustrious names such as Hippocrates of Greece, Galen of Rome, Ar-Razi of Persia, Ibn Al-Baytar of Andalusia, Spain, Maimonides of Cairo, Egypt, and Ibn Sina (Avicenna) were practitioners and teachers of Unani Tibb: Whole-Person Healthcare & Medicine.
