A New Translation of the 11th-Century Canon with Practical Applications for Integrative Health Care.

A millenium after his life, Avicenna remains one of the most highly regarded physicians of all time. His Canon of Medicine, also known as Qanun, is one of the most famous and influential books in the history of medicin, forming the basis for our modern understanding of human health and disease. 

It focused not simply on the treatment of symptoms, but on finding the cause of illness through humoral diagnosis- a method still used on traditional Unani and Ayurvedic medicines in India.

2. Topics of Medicine
