Abstract

EFFECT OF NON MEDICINAL THERAPY OF UNANI MEDICINE IN WEIGHT AND DYSLIPIDEMIA MANAGEMENT

Dr. Misbahuddin Azhar*, Sadia Ayub and Mustehasan

ABSTRACT

The Unani System of Medicine (USM) offers treatment of diseases related to all the systems and organs of the human body. It offers four types of treatment modalities e.g. Regimenal Therapy (‘Ilājbi’l- Tadbīr), Dietotherapy (‘Ilājbi’l-Ghidhā’), Pharmacotherapy (‘Ilājbi’l- Dawā’) and Surgery (‘Ilājbi’l-Yad). However, the first preference of treatment is given to regimenal therapy and dietotherapy, pharmacotherapy and surgery are used as per requirement. Regimenal therapy (‘Ilājbi’l-Tadbīr) and Dietoptherapy (‘Ilājbi’l-Ghidhā’) comprises of non-medicinal procedures, along with lifestyles and diet modification for preservation of health and treatment of disease. Unani scholars have advocated for mixed approach of treatment in cases of complex diseases. In this case study, a 23-year-old presented with the complaints of heaviness in chest, palpitation, listlessness, constipation, numbness in hand and legs and severe sweating occasionally, with dyslipidemia was treated with non-medicinal (riyazat and change in diet) procedures of USM for two months. After two months of change in diet pattern in terms of quality and quantity and riyazat his lipid profile comes to normal and he loses 11.5 kg weight and feel healthy. By this observation it may be concluded that the concept of dieto-therapy and riyazat in UMS have strong base to prove safe and effective in the weight and dyslipidemia management.

Keywords: Dyslipidemia, obesity, Regimenal Therapy, ‘Il?jbi’l-Tadb?r, Dietotherapy, ‘Il?jbi’l-Ghidh?’, weight management.
