Before we get into the truth of the matter, and how we can re-define health in the modern world based on a profound whole-person healthcare tradition (Tibb), first take a moment to reflect on this question...
If you've experienced any of these, and want to learn tried and true principles towards overcoming these challenges and building and maintaining good health and wellbeing, here are the 4 most important keys that you need to understand.
These days, they are known as 'complementary' and 'alternative' therapies, however, for 1000s of years, traditional and natural healthcare was the main form of healthcare for all of humanity.
Ṭibb (also referred to in its various aspects as Arabic, Greco-Arab, Hikmah, Unani, Islamic, Sufi, and Prophetic medicine) is a tradition of healthcare and medicine developed over 1000s of years. The wisdom and knowledge of Ṭibb has 4 key areas of focus.
[Key #1] Hikmah: Understanding ourselves as whole and holy, honouring our spiritual, psychological, and physical aspects, and learning how to take care of them.
[Key #2] Fitrah: Harmonising with the natural principles of life on Earth. Learning how to manage The Six Lifestyle Factors for total health and wellbeing.
[Key #3] Mizaj: Recognising the uniqueness of each of us by discovering our individual strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, particular needs, and valuable gifts.
[Key #4] Miftah-al-Khizanah: Benefitting from nature's infinite treasury of healing foods and medicinal plants to remedy diseases and enrich our human capabilities.
In just a moment, we'll go into more details about The 4 Keys. But first, this revealing story will give you an idea of the benefits and the transformation that the wisdom, knowledge and practices of Ṭibb can offer.
" I found myself feeling tired, worn-out, and stressed. Looking back, the scary thing is that I was just 18 years old, and facing these problems. Specifically, some of the things I was struggling with were: low energy, social anxiety, low moods, insomnia, junk-food addictions, sugar cravings, stomach aches and constipation.
I didn't realise how much of this was actually being caused by my own unhealthy lifestyle and lack of knowledge about taking care of my health and wellbeing. I just took these problems as 'part of life' and 'lived with them' without thinking much about why or how these things were happening.
However, my suffering was getting worse and worse, and soon I was struggling with my studies, becoming disconnected from my family, feeling more miserable and empty, and becoming more and more unwell physically and mentally.
Having nowhere else to turn in my constant suffering, I wanted to become more connected with myself and nature. Searching the internet, I discovered that traditional, natural lifestyle and practices could heal my mind and body.
I started to have a hope that natural and wholistic medicine could help to heal my problems on a deep level, but I had no idea where to go to learn more. Fortunately for me, one of my cousins told me about Hakim Salim's College in Leicester, UK. So I checked out their website and saw that they had an in-person course coming up within the next few months (back then, they hadn't yet started online courses).
Since this was the first opportunity I had ever come across to learn about health and wellbeing from a traditional and natural approach, I decided to attend. So I made the commitment, and my cousin also decided to join.
We arrived in Leicester, UK, for the beginning of the course. When I received the course materials, I was uplifted even just by reading the first few sections. The clarity and depth of wisdom really impressed me!
But that wasn't even the most impressive thing about this whole experience. On the first day of class, we met Hakim Salim. He is such a compassionate, inspiring and deeply grounded teacher. Not only that, but his level of knowledge and skills in this field I found very impressive.
I really didn't anticipate having such a special experience. Before this, I had no idea that there was such a profound and rich treasury of knowledge, wisdom and resources. I genuinely had never imagined that anything like this even existed.
We learned a lot during the course and it was such a great and unique experience. But then, Hakim Salim did an assessment of my health, which is when things got a lot more serious.
After Hakim Salim asked me a few questions and took some notes, he assessed me using iridology and pulse analysis. Then, he looked directly at me and said, "your health is very poor, especially for your age". This was not good news. I trusted Hakim Salim because I knew that he had decades of experience and expertise behind him, and this was a gentle-but-firm reality check.
And so, Hakim Salim explained to me very clearly that I had two choices:
After learning what I did on the course, and following the methods and the principles, I went through the biggest transformation of my life.
Over time, it significantly helped my addictions, cravings, unhappiness, burnout, low moods and anxiety, and I started to feel every part of my being healing. This was also a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.
I can say that my life changed dramatically. My food, sleep and energy problems were hugely improved. I felt much more at peace with myself. My parents and family started noticing a more independent, alive, happier and confident person.
Since this journey started, my life is on a path that is much better than the one I used to be on. I am proud to be physically healthy, emotionally well, mentally fit and able, contributing every day in my work and family, and continuing to grow."
The reason why we are suffering more from chronic diseases and ailments is because the wisdom and knowledge of The 4 Keys to Health and Wellbeing have been lost and hidden away, and confusion has replaced it.
We live in the 'information age' where data is readily accessible. Masses of data and information are gathered, but we've lost the understanding we need to make sense of life, health and wellbeing as a whole. The problem is that we have lost these 4 important keys to health and wellbeing.
We've become disconnected from the wisdom, principles, and practices of Ṭibb that have been preserved and refined over 1000s of years. Having lost this, we are left in the dark, unable to understand health and disease meaningfully. However, there is now a revival.
People from all backgrounds, from all around the world are seeking a more enlightened approach. To reconnect with the lost wisdom of humanity - the Ṭibb tradition with its 4 keys - to help them live their lives healthy and well. For example...
- Farhat experienced arthritis pains for years. Then she learned of an 'amazing healing superfood' which she started eating at breakfast regularly. However, little did she know, this so-called 'superfood' was actually making her arthritis pains worse. Farhat only realised this after learning about the 4 keys, and her arthritis pains improved after following this understanding.
- Iman is a creative. She is a pottery artist who is living her passion. However, she suffered from seasonal cold, flu, and pneumonia, every single year. It brought her down and she could no longer be as creative and energetic. This was going on for 20+ years until Iman used the 4 keys to go a whole year pneumonia-free. She also shed excess weight, and feels much more vital and healthy.
Previously, the knowledge of The 4 Keys was only available to our in-person students, most of who travelled across cities, countries, or continents to learn them. However, with our new online programme, you can now get a comprehensive and foundational understanding learning from the comfort of your own home.
This programme is called The Ṭibb Transformation.
The Ṭibb Transformation includes instant access to all of the The 4 Keys. This authentic, comprehensive curriculum is exclusive to our College and only available to our learners. And that's not all...
With the Ṭibb Transformation, we decided to go even further. While the knowledge of The 4 Keys is truly priceless, you can only benefit if you bring this wisdom, knowledge, and practices into your reality. You will have a certified Ṭibb Healthy Living Coach who will walk you through our 5-Part Coaching Plan to help you understand and implement this profound knowledge.
Before we go into the details of the curriculum and coaching plan, here's a visual overview of how your Ṭibb Transformation will happen.
This diagram shows the three essential ingredients in the Ṭibb Transformation that have helped hundreds of our students (just like Hussein, Farhat, and Iman, metioned earlier), to overcome diseases and maintain good health.
