This book takes the reader to the beginnings of medical science in ancient Greece and traces its subsequent journey into the 8th century Arab world and the birth of a new system called `Unani` - based on the balance of the humours in the body. There is also an informative chapter on home remedies, which can be safely tried by readers - as Unani medicine prescribes drugs which originate in nature.
