……Islamic Medicine is basically Natural or Fitrah Medicine (al-Tibb al-Fitri) centred on a sophisticated philosophical, spiritual and empirical psychology of the self-body dual nature of the human being, in which the body serves the self, while drawing its medical content critically from the ancient medical traditions of diverse cultures, Greek, Egyptian, Indian, Persian, Arabian and Chinese, as well as adding on these accumulated medical wisdom from the medical traditions of the Prophet himself (al-Tibb al-Nawawi), sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, all within an overarching integrative conceptual framework.

As Dr. Rehan Zaidi of Sunnipath Academy puts it;

“One commonality between the Eastern medical traditions and Prophetic medicine is their concept of holism, a view documented well over 1,000 years ago explaining the value of the mind-body-spirit connection—discussions modern science seriously begun to explore only in the past 20 years. Taking Chinese medicine as an example, other shared practices also demonstrate the similarities. Both these systems place emphasis on procedures such as cupping, herbal therapy, and dietary modification, with fundamental reliance on prevention, balance, and non-physical forces such as energy and prayer.”
