Medical Herbalism  from  Imam Reza

Imam Reza (AS) was the first person who likened the body to a complete small country and it says: The body structure is similar to a kingdom. The king of the body is heart, blood vessels and nerves in the central nervous system and the brain are all the governors. King's house is his heart and his realm is the body, his hands, feet, eyes, ears and his tongue are his companions and army. Stomach is the treasury and his chest is the unveiling. Then Imam used some analogies for every part of the body among which we can mention the eyes. Imam Reza (AS) likened the eyes to lights, the ears to sources of accepting data from outside world and the tongue as well as two lips and teeth to expresser of words and will. He likened the beauty of man and what he has inside from the stomach, chest, and abdomen to the selector treasury. Next, he speaks of the effect of joy and sorrow in the face and endogenous factors and center of each one. In a part of his letter he gave guidelines about the quality and quantity of desire for food and beverage which are all in consistent with the protection of the health of the body. Imam starts his recommendations with eating food and explains each one based on his ability and temper considering the timetable and location to be best choice.


Imam (AS) has reminded the harmful effect of excessive heat for food materials that destructs its useful nutrients like vitamins and loss of elements in food that quickly evaporates like liquid food and in this field he has surpassed the nutritionists. 


Imam (AS) recommended not to indulge in drinking water after meals because this wrong way will damage the stomach and other organs. 


Imam(AS) also pointed to the effects of indulge in using some of the foods and their disadvantage and says: " Indulgence in eating egg as a regular habit causes stomach pain and will damage the spleen, indulgence in eating eggs causes breathlessness and small brown spots.

" Imam (AS): "Eating raw meat will let parasites in the stomach and intestine. Indulgence in eating wild animals and cattle meat causes dementia, mental retardation, decreases understanding and increases forgetfulness. 


Imam has divided bathing to four parts and described it the best way: the first part is cold and dry, second is cold and wet, third is wet and warm and fourth is wet and dry. He has then pointed to the anatomical and physiological advantages of bathing. Unction and use of oil and herbs have also been highly recommended by him to loosen and soften the skin; because skin has a significant role in removal of toxic substances from the body. Thus washing and cleaning skin pores and soften the skin is one of the most important things for human health. In a part of health messages, he has explained the quality of sleeping on back and observing the health of both digesting and nervous system and given recommendations; he stated: Anyone who wants a powerful memory should eat currant and fig (food that contains phosphor). Imam (AS), in excerpts of his teachings, has mentioned the health of the teeth, and has explained necessary recommendations to protect them against external factors, observe the hygiene of teeth using useful and whitening materials. 


Imam (AS) in the end, reminded the possibility of some chemicals no to be dissolved in the body, accumulation of these substances in the digestive system which can be hazardous and harmful and sometimes may lead to death of the person. In some of the clauses of this section, the cause of some illnesses have been pointed out one of which is contradictory caused by mixture of different foods entering the stomach and intestines and can cause infections in intestines. The last point (Al-Dhahabiah treatise) is the usual emphasis and stress of Imam (AS) to follow the teachings and guidelines and avoid the negligence.
