Unani in India
Originating as a Persia-Arabic traditional medicine, Unani has developed over most of the eastern world and is making rapid inroads into the more progressive areas of western alternative healthcare practices. First originating in Mughal, India, and later developing in South-Asian muslim cultures, Unani takes a different approach to wellbeing to almost all other medical disciplines. The best Unani doctors in India are specially trained physicians who understand the human physiological and psychological anatomy in terms of 'akhlat', or humours that make up human anatomy. These humours consist of 'phlegm', 'blood', 'yellow bile', and 'black bile', and Unani physicians understand how the equilibrium and balance of these humours is the key factor in either health and wellbeing or, conversely, pain, suffering and disease. Understanding these humours involves years of study. The subject contains hundreds of books of literature, some dating back hundreds of years. During the diagnostic process and evaluation, the best Unani doctors in India will use clinical features, such as signs, symptoms, laboratory features, and mizaj as important guidelines as to what the best course of action is, in order to restore equilibrium to the humours. Through correct consultation and treatment procedures, the natural equilibrium of the akhlat which make up the tissues and organs of the human anatomy can be achieved.
