In the centre of naturopathic and herbal medicine is a living healthcare tradition called Tibb. Prophetic medicine provided the foundation, and over time integrated elements from Egypt, India, China and classical Greece. Tibb is an Arabic word, which in difference placed has been referred to as Arabic, Greco-Arab, Hikmah, Unani, Islamic and Sufi medicine.

This is the first systematic study of Tibb - Islamic Medicine - as a living tradition, by a practising Hakim, to be published in the English language. Originally published in 1986, this is the 6th edition expanded with practical resources.

This book introduces the reader to Tibb as a holistic paradigm of health. It explains the history and philosophy of Islamic Medicine, as well as its psychological and physiological concepts. The book discusses Tibb's theory of causes, diagnostic methods and offerings for preventative healthcare.
