  1. In fact what we call Unani medicines , are all based on formula transported to Western world by visiting Bodhi and Jain monks to those Countries as pre Christ era Indian Knowledge of medicines was vast from the vegetation in Indian soil at that time. Old Indian scriptures , Vedas which were in Sanskrit were taught to Western world by these monks and the rule of Muslims and Britishers rewrote Indian History and distorted the facts about ancient India and got Western medicines and all such medicines in their discoveries and Ayurveda got lost in history. Now the practitioners of Indian Medicine , pass out from Ayurveda colleges but prefer to practice allopathy. How will we be able to revive Ayurveda and Unani medical systems.
