"O mankind: Eat of what is lawful and good on earth" - (Quran 2: 168).
‘Tibb’ comes from the root meaning in medicine from Arabic, and dates from the early Islamic period (750-1000 CE). ‘Unani’ means Greek, and Unani Tibb refers to the tradition in south Asia.
The tradition is based on earlier Greek medicine, and was developed within the Islamic Empire by Muslim, Christian and Jewish scholars. They were supported by Muslim rulers keen to develop medical and scientific knowledge.
This led to a large-scale translation movement converting texts into Arabic. It also generated enormous amounts of new medical knowledge, collected in encyclopedias by scholars such as Ibn Sina. These were translated from Arabic into Latin, and became the basis of European medical teaching for many centuries.
Tibb is based on the Greek concept of humours in which the mixture of humours contributes to an individual’s temperament.
The hakim, or doctor, keeps the individual’s temperament internally balanced and in harmony with the environment. Practitioners use the gentlest treatments possible to restore balance. They often advise changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise.
The progressive Muslim occupation of India from the 11th century brought new medical knowledge. Muslims’ growing influence in South Asia over the centuries saw Tibb expand too. Tibb eventually became Unani Tibb, or Greek medicine, throughout the region. It developed as a tradition, and shared materia medica ideas with Ayurveda.

Biography - Shahid Bukhari B.Sc. (Hons), D.Ir, MGNI, TIBB, CBT, MIANLPC
Shahid enjoyed a successful career in the field of computing, and co-starting and ran an IT company. After studying traditional medicine for some years, Shahid graduated in Tibb Traditional Medicine and Herbalism.
As a child, Hakeem Shahid noticed that some of the older members of the community went to consult practitioners of natural medicine, preferring them over so called modern health care providers as they felt that pharmacological medicines, in the long term, left them feeling weaker and worse off.
This left a lasting impression and shaped Shahid’s understanding of different schools of medicine. Shahid found, in his own experience, that treatment targeting root causes of illness met with better long-term well-being and this persuaded him to follow his instincts into a profound and ancient profession.
Because Shahid initially started a Clinic in London but then moved to Manchester opening his own highly success practice in Northwest England. Shahid is a Master Iridologist, studied Irdiology at the Holistic Health College with Peter and Angela Bradbury. Currently, he is studying for a Post Graduate Licentiate Diploma In Homeopathy.
Shahid is also interested in helping the community and is a trust member of an esteemed educational trust in the North of England.
