Exploring Traditional Medicine: Towards a Personalized Approach to Healthcare

The concept of Temperament is a common underlying principle of traditional medicines across the globe, which explains the body's equilibrium state between hot and cold and how any deviation from this balance can lead to illnesses. This approach enables practitioners to provide personalized treatments based on the patient's condition rather than the disease itself.

Dr. Maryam Yavari has recently accomplished her international project on this theory with the collaboration of a group of scientists. The project compiles native interpretations of the Hot and Cold theory in different traditional medicines and reviews scientific research on the subject.

Dr. Maryam Yavari, MD (IMG), Ph.D., ND is a healthcare practitioner with a background in Traditional Humoral Medicine and extensive involvement in clinical research. She obtained her medical degree from Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, a Ph.D. from Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, and a naturopathic medicine doctorate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). She has also completed a 2-year clinical residency in naturopathic medicine. She is an academic faculty member of CCNM and has lectured at the University of Toronto. Maryam has a passion for integrating complementary medicine and her past clinical experience to provide evidence-based, personalized, holistic, patient-centered care.
