For the Sufis, the healing of the sick is considered to be the most important of all services to humanity. For the first time in the West, the author presents the secret principles and practices of this divine science, based on the 800-year tradition of the Chishti Order. Among the many topics covered are dietary recommendations of the Prophet, the preparation of herbal formulas, healing with essential oils, illnesses arising at various stages of the soul's evolution, fasting and prayer, talismans, and the "infallible remedy."
A Fulbright Research Scholar, Hakim G.M. Chishti, N.D. studied traditional healing in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India, and has twenty years of practical experience in Unani natural medicine. He is the author of The Book of Sufi Healing (Healing Arts Press, 1991).
