Book Description


Unani system of medicine is being practised as a beneficial system in almost all parts of the country. Unani medicines are easily available, easy to administer, safe and inexpensive.

The remedies and the types of diseases included in this handbook cover a wide range of day-to-day illnesses which one comes across everywhere. These have been carefully gone into by a team of experienced Hakims who were associated with this work. Every care has been taken to ensure that full and detailed instructions are given in the handbook.

For a single disease more than one formulation is prescribed in this compilation so that the patient could make use of one which is available in his surroundings. For the same reason, compound drugs have also been included and the patients can use whichever are available near their normal place of residence.

Treatment of serious and complicated diseases has not been included in this book for negligence in such cases may endanger the life of the patient. Only simple remedies for common ailments have been prescribed and are not to be used in the initial stages of the diseases. If the patient dose not show improvement, a physician may immediately be consulted or the patient should be referred to the nearby hospital.

Instructions regarding preparation of medicines, their usage and preservation have also been appended. Details of child doses etc, have also been given in a separate chart.

I am thankful to all those Unani physicians who have been associated with this work and have rendered valuable suggestions to make this volume a useful compendium. My thanks are also due to my colleagues in the Council and in the Ministry of Health for their help in the compilation of this handbook.


In the field of medical relief the crying need is the dissemination of information relating to prevention and safe cure of diseases. In every village, however remote or inaccessible it may be, one can always find few practitioners of Indian systems of medicine. The literate people, endowed with qualities of leadership, may not also be lacking in the villages. Efforts may be made to use them as a vehicle for dissemination of medical information to every household. The present volume is an attempt in this direction.

This handbook incorporates herbal, mineral and animal drugs which are readily available, therapeutically effective and safe enough and are inexpensive. Information on hygiene and diet also finds a place in this volume.

The book has received wide acclaim from practitioners of Unani Medicine as well as common people. It's first English edition has already exhausted, and the Council is now bringing out its second edition. The book has already been published in Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu, and is to be brought out in other Indian languages. Its Arabic version is in print.

Our efforts will not go in vain if this publication gradually helps the common man in preserving health and preventing disease. Thus it will also contribute to the achievement of the goal of Health for All by the year 2000. Readers are welcome to give constructive suggestions for the book. It will help us improve this publication in its forthcoming editions.
