Shahid Bukhari ND, Homeopath, Master Iridologist, Naturopath, Unani-TIBB, Acupuncturist
Shahid Bukhari is a traditional Unani Tibb Herbal Practitioner (‘a Tabeeb’/’a Hakim’)
From an early age Shahid was interested in healing and helping others. Growing up, he noticed people in traditional countries particularly the elder members of the community consulted practitioners of natural medicine, preferring them over modern health care treatments as they felt that pharmacological medicines, in the long term, left them feeling weaker and worse off. This left a lasting impression on Shahid and shaped his understanding of different schools of medicine.
Before pursuing a career in Traditional Medicine, Shahid graduated in Computer Science and successfully ran a IT company and carried out various work related to this field. Nevertheless his real source of pleasure and fulfilment came to flourish when he finally took the step to follow his inner passion and pursue a career in Unani Tibb Herbal medicine.
Over the years Shahid has received one-to-one apprenticeship in traditional Unani-Tibb Medicine and Herbal Medicine. Furthermore, he has studied Hijama, Iridology, Nutrition, Homeopathy and Tung Acupuncture.
