Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM): Steering a Centuries-old Tradition along Modern Pathways

Part I : The origin and development of Unani system of medicine
Unani, along with Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa and Ayurveda, forms the family of the great Traditional Medicine Systems of India, with their own body of theoretical concepts, long traditions of textual knowledge, well-developed branches of practices, and long lineage of practitioners whose numbers run into thousands. Unani is one of the oldest healthcare systems of the world, and is a comprehensive medical system, based on the principles of harmony and balance of elements and humours in the body.
Interestingly, the name “Unani” has its roots in the word “Unan”, which in many languages of this region, refers to Greece. According to historians of Unani, the system originated from the ancient doctrines of Greek physicians Hippocrates and Galen. It was later refined and developed through systematic experimentation by the Arabs. Hakim Ibn Sina (Avicenna) from Persia collated the knowledge and added to this therapeutic healing system. The Arabs brought Unani Medicine to India. It was in this intellectually fertile land that it took firm roots, developing its own indigenous flavour, and emerging into a multi-faceted medical pursuit. The Mughal Emperors, the Delhi Sultans, the Khiljis and the Tughlaqs provided state patronage to the scholars, enrolling and encouraging them as state employees and court physicians. The Unani physicians or Hakims, added new knowledge gained from other traditions of Indian healthcare and thus, the Unani healing system practiced in the sub-continent is a little different from the original Greek system. Today, the Unani system of medicine is practiced widely in Persia, Pakistan, South Africa, England and India.
Though the traditional healing systems suffered under the British rule, the Unani system survived due to the patronage of people in large numbers. It also found support from the Nizam of Hyderabad and a few influential Indian families. The scientific research in Unani Medicine received a boost in India from the towering personality Masih al-Mulk Hakim Ajmal Khan, in the 1920s. He pioneered research in Unani Medicine by establishing a college for its scientific study and is credited with many important discoveries. His protégé, Dr. Salim al-Zaman Siddiqi, undertook seminal research on important medicinal plants used in the Unani System of Medicine. In 1931, Dr. Siddiqi discovered the medicinal properties of the plant known as Asravl (Rauwolfia serpentine Linn.) and successfully isolated an agent from this plant, which he named as Ajmaline after his mentor Hakim Ajmal Khan. This significant discovery paved the way to sustained research in Unani Medicine on scientific parameters. Thus, by the first half of the 20th century, Unani gained aceeptance as a comprehensive system of medicine founded on a sound theoretical base and capable of providing preventive, curative and rehabilitative healthcare.

    1. What a great testimony I would like everyone to read and follow the instructions to get cured from HSV1&2. I got a diagnosis of HSV1&2 March this year and I have been taking pills to prevent an outbreak. I never stop searching for a cure because I strongly believe that there is something somewhere that can get rid of it completely and in August this year, I ran through some comments on Youtube about Dr Osato herbal cure and a lot of people commented about him having the herbs that can get rid of herpes completely. I was excited and I contacted Dr Osato and ordered the cure for myself and he sent it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to take it which I rightly followed and behold I went for checkup after two weeks of taking the herbs and my result shows NEGATIVE. My doctor confirmed with me that I am totally clear from HSV1&2. You can as well contact Dr Osato to get the herbal cure from him. His email is osatoherbalcure@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +2347051705853. Dr Osato also has the cure for the following virus/diseases HIV, HPV, HSV1&2, DIABETES, CANCER of any kind, GENITAL HERPES, COLD SORE, VAGINAL INFECTION, ECT…. His website is osatoherbalcure.wordpress.com

  2. General examination not only helps to accurately assess the current health status but also detects dangerous diseases at the earliest. Thereby, develop a suitable treatment regimen or take measures to prevent risk factors for the disease in time. Actively getting regular check-ups, keeping your weight at a reasonable level, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are all important factors in helping you live as healthy and as long as possible.

  5. I am amazed by Dr Maggi’s remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes I average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Dr Maggi here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Dr Maggi remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too. Email: drmaggiherbalhome@gmail.com WhatsApp +19179796387

  6. Sin embargo, el hecho en sí de mandar un burofax tiene
    un precio que ronda los 7 euros. Sin embargo, otro servicio de los telegráficos, como es
    el burofax, está experimentando incluso algún crecimiento, tratándose de un servicio estable en volumen y facturación”, señala.
    Si quiere darse de baja de un servicio y no le hacen caso, enviar un burofax le ayudará a
    comunicarlo. En este caso, están enfocados al éxito.
    Por desgracia para ellos, muchos de lo que
    hacen comúnmente desde su parte neurótica, es lo que se entiende en muchos sectores de
    la población como una persona de éxito. Valora su físico y/o su estatus por encima de
    lo que, realmente, es la otra persona. Cada persona tiene una forma distinta de pensar,
    de comprender y de interpretar la vida; para conocerse a uno mismo es
    importante descubrir e interiorizar qué factores condicionan nuestras conductas.
    Esto es importante pues mucha gente que no se plantea identificarse con el tres, si conociera bien todos los subtipos,
    se podría llevar más de una sorpresa. Todo esto tiene mucho que ver con la cultura patriarcal que nos toca vivir.
