Apart from taking a regular well balanced diet and active participation in sports, you should get 7-8 hours' sleep daily, go to bed early and rise up early, go for morning walk (brisk walking) and take more proteins (especially chicken and fish) in diet.

I can answer questions related to the scientific basis of the use of unani drugs, their pharmacological properties, possible adverse effects and interaction with allopathic drugs. I can also give expert opinion on research methodology for the scientific validation of unani medicines including pharmacological screening and clinical trials. I would not be able to answer questions on compound unani formulations unless I know their ingredients.
