What benefits does Unani medicine have over Allopathic and Ayurveda drugs?
Every system of medicine is based on specific principles and they have been evolved in different era.Each system be it Allopathic,Unani,Ayurveda or Homeopathy have their own merits and demerits,so I can not opine that Unani System of Medicine have benefits over other system of medicine.Unani Physicians or Hakeems have an holistic approach towards the disease.Unani Medicines are effective,safe with minimal or no side effects if prescribed correctly after correct diagnosis of the disease.Musculoskeletal disorders like knee pain,frozen shoulder,back ache and cervical pain can be successfully treated with massage therapy and dry,fire or wet cupping without prescribing the medicine.
What is Islamic perspective in Unnani medicine?Any quranic or sunnah evidences about Hijamah and other sunnah medicine you follow?
There is no seprate section as islamic medicine in the syllabus of BUMS.Unani Sytem of medicine is based on Hippocrates Theory of humors.They are Dum(Blood),Balgham(Phlegm),Safra(yellow bile) and Sauda(black bile).which are formed in the body after digestion of food.Certain Medicine advised by the Prophet (PBUH) is used by Unani Physicians e.g.Qust Sheeri,Olive oil,Pomogrante and kalonji etc.Several Hadees are mentioned in Bukhari Shreef,Mishkat Shareef and sinin Ibn Maja regarding Hijamah which has been advices by the Prophet(PBUH).

Hijamah is a procedure of relieving local congestion or used for systemic diseases.At our center Herbs and Hakim we provide massage therapy,steam bath,leech therapy and Dry cupping,fire cupping and wet cupping with unani medicine.
What are benefits of Hijamah? Which diseases are covered?What is success rate?
Prophet (PBUH) said Hijamah cures all diseases.I have quoted 17 hadees about the site,days and date of hijamah advice by the Prophet(PBUH).We have treated Migraine,Cervical spondylosis,frozen shoulder,palmar and Planter fascitis,back ach,sciatica,male and female sexual disorders,skin disease mental disorders and many more.The sucess rate is quite high.
Are there any side effects of Hijamah. Also what should a person keep in mind whie choosing a Hijamah practitioner?
There is no side effects if Hijamah is done correctly under hygienic condition.Some people may feel giddiness or nausea.but it is a temporary.Hijamah therapist must be a qualified person.He or she must be an experienced person.
Which countries or destinations do you plan to cover?
Hijamah should be practiced in every country.
What advise would you give to medical students who doubt efficacy of hijamah and unnani medicine or have serious concerns of how lucrative this field is?
Hijamah is very effective if done correctly. Unani Medicine are also effective ,safe and pocket friendly and easily avaliable.People are coming back towards unani System of medicine.So I see grate future of Unani System of Medicine.
