I am a single Mother determined to use my knowledge & passion of science to make a difference to people lives within the field of Herbal Medicine. After facing many obstacles (including all those late nights crushing herbs!) My light bulb moment was when I found some herbs in the Tibb ecyclopedias that had either become extinct or had negative side effects previously unknown. I had at that precise moment discovered that herbal medicine as taught by Ibn Sinna had become outdated and is in dire need of modernisation.
Having studied islamic herbal medicine for 4 years under the guidance of a Hakim connected with (Isnad) a chain of transmission back to Ibn Sinna (Avicenna) and treating a number of patients successfully;I have felt the need to further my research. Utilising modern scientifict methodolgies coupled with the latest advancements in plant phyto chemistry; I intend to reform and develop Islamic herbal medicine in light of new knowledge; as Ibn sinna did, when he took the knowledge of herbal medicine from the Greeks and transformed it over 1000 years ago to the Tibb that we practise it today.
I would like to ask my friends and family or anyone who is willing to donate and help a fellow practitioner to develop within the field to complete a MSc in Medicinal Natural Products and Phytochemistry. Tuition fees are something most people in todays society struggle with however I believe if the right amount of people came together to aide a cause which would benefit the health of our future generations, I could achieve my target.This is a taught masters and I would have to finance my study I am currently working in Bradford as a Science Supply Teacher to support myself and my two daughters; Zahabia (aged 13) and Zunairah (aged 10) and would need financial help to live and study in London UCL.
If this is something you feel you can support and believe in, like me; that big pharmaceutical companies havent got all the answers and that more investments need to be made into the study of natural plant medicines; I would greatly appreciate your contribution as will my furture patients.
