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.

40 Years of Dedicated Service

The College of Medicine and Healing Arts offers the Diploma in Herbal and Naturopathic Medicine programme in the UK and internationally for those who wish to practice Unani Tibb as a professional. The training provided by the College is the most authentic training of Unani Tibb, provided in traditional practices incorporating appropriate modern knowledge and skills.

The College's Principal Hakim M Salim Khan has spent 40 years of dedicated service learning, practicing, teaching, and sharing the tradition of Unani Tibb: Whole-Person Healthcare & Medicine.

The Diploma in Herbal and Naturopathic Medicine is a unique opportunity to benefit in-person, directly from Hakim M Salim Khan and his rich legacy of work in practice and teaching.
