Practised for over 4,000 years, the philosophy of Traditional Persian Medicine (TPM)—Teb-Sonati—is rooted in the strong interconnection between the body, mind and soul. Diseases are known as having physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as environmental elements. If an individual suffers from a particular condition, TPM seeks out the underlying causes rather than simply suppressing the symptoms.
According to TPM, a healthy person can become even healthier. TPM places equal emphasis on the state of an individual’s health and the disease affecting the body. It restores health in the body by treating the illness and subsequently supports the individual in maintaining optimum health.
Practised for over 4,000 years, TPM integrates the theory of the Four Temperaments, Humours and herbalism. It prioritises health management over treatment and relies on the body’s own ability to naturally self-heal. TPM aims to treat illnesses, chronic and acute, through a mixture of diet therapy, lifestyle adjustment, herbalism and natural therapies, all working together to help restore the body, mind, emotions and spirit to its proper balance.
TPM’s philosophy places equal emphasis on the preservation of health and beauty and the treatment of illness conditions. It advocates that a healthy person can become healthier and can delay chronic illnesses linked to lifestyle-related diseases.
TPM principles allow for a better understanding of the causes of disease and the application of a treatment that addresses the symptoms and the underlying causes. TPM encourages a lifestyle that combines the Science of Medicine with the Art of Care.
