Are the four humors balanced with foods? I'm trying to get Unani some linkies.--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot""We are all born mad. Some remain so." 12:46, 4 March 2009 (EST)

That's one letter away from Onani, which is the Japanese term for masturbation.--67.180.16.83 (talk) 05:35, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Cancer[edit]

OMG... "(Special Note, Coming Soon! A dramatic new research study shows that people of countries using the Unani principles of diet have the lowest cancer rates in the world!!!)"

Yeah, I'll bet. They probably die from getting their veins slashed by bloodletters instead.--Krejtalk 14:59, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Detoxifying[edit]

Herbal treatments are used to assist in restoring the body to its proper balance. This requires first detoxifying the body of the accumulation of superfluous matters, whatever they may be. Naming such things is not so important as removing them.[1]

Germs[edit]

The health industry in all its myriad manifestations has so conditioned people to believe that all diseases are caused by bacteria and other germs that people have a very difficult time accepting that these are not truly the cause of disease after all. Please reread the first section and the discussion of the evolution of the concepts of causative agents of disease, and ponder over the fact that the bacterial theory of disease has come into prominence only in the past fifty years, and may not be the prevailing accepted medical theory even ten years from now.[2]
