Herbal Medicine that has accumulated over many thousands of years by the indigenous population of the
This knowledge is therefore the property of the people abd as Herbalists we stand as guardians and
protectors of the natural healing arts so that they may be passed from generation to generation.
We stand full square behind the movement to protect the National Heritage of Herbal Medicine from the
attempted takeover and control, by either pharmaceutical companies or government. Such an act would only
serve to remove the freedom of choice of healthcare from the people of this country.
The last attempt to curtail the practice of herbal medicine gave rise to a huge public wave of objection which
led to the formation of sections 12.1 and 12.2 of the Medicine Act of 1968 to produce a safe and effective
way of maintainin the availablity of herbal medicine to the public. This lastest move to regulate is an attempt to
remove that hard won victory.

Mohsin Institute - for education and training of future practitioners
Mohsin Institute was established in 1978 in Leicester by Hakim M Salim Khan and is the leading
organisation for practice, education, research and training in the wisdom, science and practice of
Tibb, and
alternative medicine.
Tibb is a living tradition of natural medicine that has been practiced throughout human history in different
cultures. As a dynamic living tradition it developed in the Middle East whilst coming into contact with many
other forms of health and medicine. This inclusive approach enabled this tradition to integrate into it the wide
spectrum of knowledge from various cultures. Because of this diversity and richness,
Tibb is referred to by
many different names: Hippocratic, Eastern, Islamic, Greco-Arabic, sufi Humoral medicine, Unani, Hikmah
and Tibb.
The Mohsin Institute over the last 30 years, has been providing information, education and
training in Tibb and alternative medicine.
The Mohsin Institute believes that herbal medicine and natural traditions of health should remain available
to the people. Our website can be found here
