About Unani Medicine
Unani medicine is a traditional system of healing and health maintenance observed in South Asia. The origins of Unani medicine are found in the doctrines of the ancient Greek physicians. As a field, it was later developed and refined through systematic experiments by the Arabs.
The Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM), a government-sponsored initiative, aided in the translation of classical heritage, the organisation of clinical trials, the improvement of drug standardisation, and the investigation of toxicological and phytopharmacological properties of natural products long used by Unani doctors.
