Persian Medicine

Medical history indicates that the medicinal benefits of herbs have been known for centuries as records of Native American, Chinese, Egyptian, Persian, and Hebrew practices show that herbs were used extensively to cure practically every known illness. The practice has existed since prehistoric times and is used today by up to 80% of the world's population as the primary form of medicine.


It has been indicated that the world's first scientific encyclopedia covering logic, natural science, psychology, geometry, astronomy, arithmetic, and music was produced by the great scholar of the world, Hakim Ibn Sina, (A.D.980-1037), the father of traditional Persian medicine, also given the Latinized name, Avicenna. As the Encyclopedia Britannica calls him "The Prince of Medicine," Ibn Sina's two most important works are The Book of Healing and The Cannon of Medicine.

The Cannon of Medicine, five long volumes, totaling one million words, still remains the most famous single book in the history of medicine.

Ibn Sinna wrote over 450 manuscripts. Unfortunately, only 240 have survived. From all these manuscripts, 40 are devoted to medicine, 150 are on philosophy, the two fields to which he contributed the most. His passion for medicine resulted in development of the most complete, magnificent and effective treatments for stomach and skin cancer, depression, immune disorders, psychiatric disorders, skeletal disorders. There is documentation that he was also extremely advanced in chiropractics. 

Ibn Sinna developed a system of pharmacological medicine, extraction, aromatherapy and magnetic therapy. He speaks of treatment for depression in conjunction with hydrotherapy. Color therapy was also part of his practice. He was the first physician scholar that used the color green for surgery, as a draping on patients. Interestingly, the first established school of pharmacology was in Jondie Shapoor, in Persia.

For the first time in the world,
Ibn Sina's discovery and creation of the energetics of medicine, referred to as "the pendulum," recognized application, uses, and connections to the human energetic body of the organs, the path of meridian energy, as well as the understanding of connections to our health with the invasion of microorganisms, parasites, funguses and all other foreign invaders.

There is little doubt that Ibn Sina's works still remain as a phenomenal source of information, even today. The application of science related to food therapy (nutrition therapy as we understand it today), herbal medicine, exercise, hydration, proper food combining, and creating his own system of healing was progressive. The understanding of energy, as it relates to the seasons, effects and energetics of metals such as gold and silver crystals, utilizing mental and physical meditation, as well as prayers over each patient is still so advanced.

As a student of Ibn Sina's great works, I have been blessed and privileged to continue the path as far as time allows, to follow his understanding of traditional Persian medicine, to share my knowledge with others, to discover and create new ways to achieve better health and continue to serve humanity for optimal global mental, spiritual, and physical health.

Peace, Love and Blessings,
