Historical documents demonstrate that Iran has a long-standing history of almost 3000 years, in which medicine was highly respected. The history of medicine in Iran is also as old as its civilization and is traced back to pre-Islamic times. As evidence reveals, prior to the foundation of the two famous medical schools of ancient Greece during the sixth century BC, at Cnidos in Asia Minor and on the nearby Aegean island of Cos, the practice of medicine was common in Mesopotamia, India, and Iran.
The Persian Medicine (PM), which is called Unani Medicine in some countries, is a school that views the world as a good and seeking discipline created by the wise and omniscient Almighty. PM consists of the sum total of all the knowledge and practices used in diagnosis, prevention and elimination in Persia from ancient times to present. It is based entirely on practical experience and observations passed down from generation to generation.
