Previously we were familiar with various methods of medicinal based on religious literature which are now widely applied in the concept of modern medicine. Such as Ayurvedic based on Hindu religious literature, Buddhist therapy based on Buddhist literature, the concept of treatment of ancient Greek, etc. All have the similar purposes, to create a balance of health between physical and spiritual. Fully established belief that physical health starts with psychological health first.

Thibbun Nabawi is one of the concepts of medicine based on religious literature, Islam. The belief is written in the book that "every disease came from God must be accompanied by a cure". The term Thibbun Nabawi itself is not yet known in the era of the emergence of Islam. Thibbun Nabawi was popularized in the 13th century AD by a Muslim scholar Ibnul Qoyim Al Juziyyah in his book Zaadul Ma'ad. Thibb Al Nabawi literally means the treatment of the Prophet. In Arabic the word "Thibb" comes from the word "thabba - yathubbu - thabban" which means skill - repair - cure. The term "Thabbib" means the treating agent or doctor.

In this book, Thibbun Nabawi (Prophetic Medicinal) is meant as a science to determine the condition of the human body in terms of health aspects, both in terms of maintenance and treatment. The concept of the treatment of the Tibb Nabawi is different from the treatment of doctors in general, because it comes from revelation, prophetic instructions that are balanced with the perfection of reason and have a degree of certainty. While other alternative treatments are based on conjecture, estimation and trial.

Mental-Spiritual-Emotion-Physical, Important Concept of Thibbun Nabawi

The concept of the nature of Thibbun Nabawi treatment is a comprehensive treatment (Total health management) not only on the physical aspects but on the spiritual, mental and emotional, all four are basic things that work together to perfect the healing process. Restoring the strength of the body through the concept of self healing "so that the body is able to treat itself" through complex chemical processes.

:: Spiritual, relating to the heart, soul, feeling. Strong belief that a cure for the disease that suffered. Keeping the heart to always have a positive prejudice, the level of immunity will increase and healing is easy to obtain.

:: Mental, closely related to the mind and how to respond to an illness. Positive thoughts need to be instilled to stimulate the body's immunity as a form of resistance to an illness.

:: Emotions, aspects that are closely related to feelings and control of lust. In connection with Islamic beliefs this can do through the media like fasting, dhikr (synergizing words and hearts to chant and remember the name of God). Emotional imbalance will cause hormones in the body also out of balance and this can be a trigger for susceptibility to disease.

:: Physically, in this era the use of synthetic chemicals is difficult to avoid and will cause excessive accumulation of toxins in the body. Resulting in damage to body organs, tissues, also weakens the body's immunity. The solution is to return to nature (herbs, natural) and in accordance with the physiology of the human body.

The concept of Thibbun Nabawi treatment is divided into 3 parts:

1 / Treatment using natural ingredients (natural). Using all the natural resources that are on this earth such as plants (selected herbs).

2 / Treatment using divine belief (divine guidance). Instill confidence that a disease that comes must have a cure.

3 / Scientific, as an absolute requirement in the concept of Thibbun Nabawi, the treatment makes sense, is scientific and can be digested in accordance with today's modern medical science. Not a frank practice of medicine.

The concept of Thibbun Nabawi treatment will be more beneficial if balanced with a great belief that healing is fact, for a good soul with a living heart. The basic of a cure in the concept of Thibbun Nabawi is not due to the lack of efficacy of a drug but rather due to poor character, and lack of acceptance of the disease he suffers.
