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 - Tibb. From the Tibb 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. 

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 Tibb: Whole-Person Healthcare & Medicine.

40 Years of Dedicated Service

The College of Medicine and Healing Arts offers the Foundation in Natural Health programme internationally in an effort to make the tradition of Tibb accessible to as many people as possible around the world. This authentic knowledge and training that we provide is desperately needed in our times.

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

Foundation in Natural Health Sydney is a unique opportunity for those in the the Oceania and South East Asia regions to benefit in-person, directly from Hakim M Salim Khan and his rich legacy of work in practice and teaching.
