Abstract

Unani Medical Non Pharmacological Regimens Display Hormesis-A Review ________________________________________ Abstract: A number of Unani Medical non-pharmacological regimens namely Ghiza-i-Tadaabeer (dietary regimens), Hammam (turkish bath) and Riyazat (exercise), etc., have been used since ancient times in the treatment of numerous human pathologies. Their purpose is to maintain cellular homeostasis by regulating various metabolic pathways. These regimens are very useful in promoting immune homeostasis and longevity, and alleviating aging, age-related disorders, and autoimmune disorders. Biological mechanisms, by which these regimens effective in several diseases, are still not completely understood, but it is known that neuro-endocrine and immunological responses are involved, leading to anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant effects in different pathological conditions. Hormetic behaviour of these regimens can be related to non specific factor such as stress, which induces the production of heat shock proteins, resulting in the enhancement of istifaragh (detoxification) by a process referred to as chaperone mediated autophagy (CMA). Hormesis is a process in which exposure to a low dose of a physical, chemical, thermal or physiological agent that damaging in higher doses induces an adaptive beneficial effect on the cell or organism. A little bid of bad can be a good thing. This is the science of hormesis. Hormesis have bio protective functions including antioxidant activity, DNA repair, apoptosis, detoxification and immune homeostasis. In this article, I have described the hormesis hypothesis of the effectiveness of Ghiza-i-Tadaabeer (dietary regimens), Hammam (turkish bath) and Riyazat (exercise) in various pathological conditions.
