Munafe Ul Aza


Munafe Ul Aza deals with the study of normal functioning of the body. The study of physiology traces its roots back to ancient India and Egypt. As a medical discipline, it goes back at least as far as the time of Hippocrates, the famous “father of medicine” – around 420 BC. Hippocrates coined the theory of the four humors, stating that the body contains four distinct bodily fluids: black bile, phlegm, blood, and yellow bile. Any disturbance in their ratios, as the theory goes, causes ill health. Claudius Galenus (c.130-200 AD), also known as Galen, modified Hippocrates’ theory and was the first to use experimentation to derive information about the systems of the body. He is widely referred to as the founder of experimental physiology. It was Jean Fernel (1497-1558), a French physician, who first introduced the term “physiology,” from Ancient Greek. It is the study of how organisms perform their vital functions.
