“A must read book. An excellent introduction, very easy to understand. It gives a clear picture of how this medicine works and explains in very accessible terms. Of course its an introduction, if you want to dig deeper I would highly recommand that you study with Hakim Salim, the author of the book. Being his student, this book gives us a good backgroud on the history and the principles of this very ancient tradition of health”

"There are a dearth of books on Eastern medicine including on TCM and Ayurveda but almost none, in English, on Unani-Tibb/Greco-Arabic Medicine. This is a short book that covers the history of this form of Medicine, its incorporation of earlier traditions (Egyptian, Babylonian, Greek, etc) and introduces the topics of humours, temperaments and elements."
“The perfect introduction, and a comprehensive resource for continued study, of this ancient yet wholly relevant field of herbal medicine.
Invaluable to all those interested in taking responsibility for their own health, happiness and well being!"
