Reviews & Comments

“This well written and easy to read book provides a concise and clear overview of a holistic medical understanding from an Islamic perspective. A very insightful read which has lead me to look further into this particular field.” 

“A must read. This book is an excellent introduction and very easy to understand. It gives a clear picture of how this medicine works in very accessible terms.” 

“There are a dearth of books on Eastern medicine including on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, but almost none in English on Unani-Tibb/Greco-Arabic Medicine. This short book covers the history of Tibb 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 medicine. Invaluable to all those interested in taking responsibility for their own health, happiness and wellbeing!“
