Abstract
Theoretical and practical knowledge of Unani System of Medicine is based on Umoor-e-Tabiyah (Seven Principles), whereas temperament and humor has great worth. Throughout the Canon of Medicine, Avicenna invokes the humors as real entities responsible for health and sickness. The Canon is not merely a medical history of its time, but rather a basis for understanding human health and disease in an integral, panoramic approach. There is no absolute temperament, that is, there is not one universal temperament to which we compare the health of an individual. Also, there is not one temperament that is the best or the optimum for all types of geographical locations. Life is sustained by heat, and grows by moisture.” Rutubat (Moisture) attributes health preservation to the maintenance of the normal level of Hararat-e-Ghareeziya (innate heat), senescence to its weakness, and death to its extinction. Innate heat of the body and its organs is also described as a temperament on a scale between hot and cold in comparison with the individual’s population of origin. When peoples reach older age than Rutubat (moisture) and Hararat-e-Ghareeziya (innate heat) decreased.
