Today's post-modern lifestyle is poisonous and unsuitable not only for our own body, mind and spirit, but is also destructive to the planet which we have been trusted to care for.
• Chronic diseases (heart disease, diabetes, etc.) are increasing, killing tens of millions every year and harming hundreds of millions more.
• Disconnect from wisdom-based tradition is causing psychological and spiritual crises, leading to a purposeless and destructive way of life.
• Health and social care institutions are breaking down, crumbling under pressure, unable to solve the increasing burden of illnesses.
It is in this crisis that the wisdom and knowledge of Ṭibb (Whole-Person Healthcare and Medicine) allows us to return to wholeness, health, and balance. This wisdom-based tradition of healthcare and medicine is our human heritage, a timeless tradition of naturopathy and herbal medicine.
Ṭibb is the body of knowledge and practices that deals with the state of human beings in health and disease. Its primary purpose is to maintain health and endeavour to restore it when lost.
This naturopathic and herbal tradition, which became lost to most of humanity, is now being revived because of people like yourself seeking out this wisdom-based, connected approach to health.
As a herbalist, naturopath, iridologist, and counsellor, practising and teaching Ṭibb has been my life's work over the last 40+ years and during this time I am privileged to have worked with 1000s of patients and 100s of students worldwide.
I run herbal medicine courses as well as naturopathy courses for both personal benefit and professional practitioner training. The Tibb Transformation is our most comprehensive foundational naturopathy course for personal benefit.
The Ṭibb Transformation is a foundational naturopathic course (which is expanded to include elements from our herbal medicine course) run by trained Ṭibb Healthy Living Coaches under my supervision. Please keep reading for more details, and we look forward to you joining us.

You might have heard about traditional forms of healthcare and medicine before. There are naturopathy and herbal traditions such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tibb-un-Nabawi, and Unani Tibb. If you're like most people, you might be hopeful but also a little sceptical about whether or not these actually work.
Before we get into the truth of the matter, and how we can re-define health in the modern world based on a profound naturopathic healthcare tradition, first take a moment to reflect on this question...
If you've experienced any of these, and want to learn tried and true principles towards overcoming these challenges and building and maintaining good health and wellbeing, here are the 4 most important keys that you need to understand.
These days, they are known as 'complementary' and 'alternative' therapies, however, for 1000s of years, traditions of natural and herbal healthcare were the main forms of healthcare for all of humanity.
Ṭibb (also referred to in its various aspects as Arabic, Greco-Arab, Hikmah, Unani, Islamic, Sufi, and Prophetic medicine) is a naturopathic tradition of healthcare and medicine developed over 1000s of years. The wisdom and knowledge of Ṭibb has 4 key areas of focus.
[Key #1] Hikmah: Wisdom-based philosophy that naturopathic and herbal medicine are based on. Understanding ourselves as whole and holy, honouring our spiritual, psychological, and physical aspects, and learning the human constitution.
[Key #2] Fitrah: Universal naturopathic principles of healthy living, known as "The Six Causes Of Health Or Disease". Learning how to manage these Six Lifestyle Factors for total health and wellbeing.
[Key #3] Mizaj: Principles of individuality in the application of naturopathic lifestyle and herbal remedies. Recognising the uniqueness of each of us by discovering our individual strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, particular needs, and valuable gifts.
[Key #4] Miftah-al-Khizanah: Benefitting from nature's infinite treasury of healing foods (personal nutrition) and medicinal plants (herbal medicines which are safe and effective) to remedy diseases and enrich our human capabilities.
In just a moment, we'll go into more details about The 4 Keys to Health and Wellbeing, and exactly what you'll learn on Ṭibb Transformation. But first, this revealing story will give you an idea of the benefits of the wise naturopathic and herbal path to health and wellbeing.
" I found myself feeling tired, worn-out, and stressed. Looking back, the scary thing is that I was just 18 years old, and facing these problems. Specifically, some of the things I was struggling with were: low energy, social anxiety, low moods, insomnia, junk-food addictions, sugar cravings, stomach aches and constipation.
I didn't realise how much of this was actually being caused by my own unhealthy lifestyle and lack of knowledge about taking care of my health and wellbeing. I just took these problems as 'part of life' and 'lived with them' without thinking much about why or how these things were happening.
However, my suffering was getting worse and worse, and soon I was struggling with my studies, becoming disconnected from my family, feeling more miserable and empty, and becoming more and more unwell physically and mentally.
Having nowhere else to turn in my constant suffering, I wanted to become more connected with myself and nature. Searching the internet, I discovered that traditional, natural lifestyle and practices could heal my mind and body.
I started to have a hope that natural and wholistic medicine could help to heal my problems on a deep level, but I had no idea where to go to learn more. Fortunately for me, one of my cousins told me about Hakim Salim's College in Leicester, UK. So I checked out their website and saw that they had an in-person course coming up within the next few months (back then, they hadn't yet started online courses).
Since this was the first opportunity I had ever come across to learn about health and wellbeing from a traditional and natural approach, I decided to attend. So I made the commitment, and my cousin also decided to join.
We arrived in Leicester, UK, for the beginning of the course. When I received the course materials, I was uplifted even just by reading the first few sections. The clarity and depth of wisdom really impressed me!
But that wasn't even the most impressive thing about this whole experience. On the first day of class, we met Hakim Salim. He is such a compassionate, inspiring and deeply grounded teacher. Not only that, but his level of knowledge and skills in this field I found very impressive.
I really didn't anticipate having such a special experience. Before this, I had no idea that there was such a profound and rich treasury of knowledge, wisdom and resources. I genuinely had never imagined that anything like this even existed.
We learned a lot during the course and it was such a great and unique experience. But then, Hakim Salim did an assessment of my health, which is when things got a lot more serious.
After Hakim Salim asked me a few questions and took some notes, he assessed me using iridology and pulse analysis. Then, he looked directly at me and said, "your health is very poor, especially for your age". This was not good news. I trusted Hakim Salim because I knew that he had decades of experience and expertise behind him, and this was a reality check.
And so, Hakim Salim explained to me very clearly that I had two choices:
After learning what I did on the course, and following the methods and the principles, I went through the biggest transformation of my life.
Over time, it significantly helped my addictions, cravings, unhappiness, burnout, low moods and anxiety, and I started to feel every part of my being healing. This was also a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.
I can say that my life changed dramatically. My food, sleep and energy problems were hugely improved. I felt much more at peace with myself. My parents and family started noticing a more independent, alive, happier and confident person.
Since this journey started, my life is on a path that is much better than the one I used to be on. I am proud to be physically healthy, emotionally well, mentally fit and able, contributing every day in my work and family, and continuing to grow."
The reason why we are suffering more from chronic diseases and ailments is because the wisdom and knowledge of The 4 Keys to Health and Wellbeing have been lost and hidden away, and confusion has replaced it. Naturopathy and herbal medicine have been made 'fringe' for so long and only now is there significant public awakening and advancement in recognising the harms of harsh industrial medicines.
We live in the 'information age' where data is readily accessible. Masses of data and information are gathered, but we've lost the understanding we need to make sense of life, health and wellbeing as a whole i.e. wisdom-based naturopathic philosophy. The problem is that we have lost these 4 important keys to health and wellbeing.
We've become disconnected from our rich heritage of naturopathy and herbal medicine traditions that have been preserved and refined over 1000s of years. Having lost this, we are left in the dark, unable to understand health and disease meaningfully. However, there is now a revival.
People from all backgrounds, from all around the world are seeking a more enlightened approach. To reconnect with the lost wisdom of humanity - the Ṭibb tradition with its 4 keys - to help them live their lives healthy and well. Here are a couple more examples...
- Farhat experienced arthritis pains for years. Then she learned of an 'amazing healing superfood' which she started eating at breakfast regularly. However, little did she know, this so-called 'superfood' was actually making her arthritis pains worse. Farhat only realised this after learning about the 4 keys, and her arthritis pains improved after following this understanding.
- Iman is a creative. She is a pottery artist who is living her passion. However, she suffered from seasonal cold, flu, and pneumonia, every single year. It brought her down and she could no longer be as creative and energetic. This was going on for 20+ years until Iman used the 4 keys to go a whole year pneumonia-free. She also shed excess weight, and feels much more vital and healthy.
Previously, the knowledge of The 4 Keys was only available to our in-person students, most of who travelled across cities, countries, or continents to learn them. However, with our new online programme, you can study this foundational curriculum from the comfort of your own home.
