 The Unani medicine is based upon the concept of Mizaj (Temperament). The temperament (mizaj) of an individual being a dynamic state varies under different physiological conditions such as age, sex, environment, etc. The entire span of life is divided into four phases; sin-al-namu (the period of growth and development extends from birth of the child up to the age of thirty years), sin-al-shububiyah or sin-al-waquf (manhood extends from thirty to forty years), sin-al-kuhulah (Aetus verelis extends from forty to sixty years) and sin-al-shaykhukhah (old age or Aetus cripita). The mizaj of sin-al-namu is hot and moist, sin-al-waquf is hot and dry, sin-al-kuhulah is cold and dry and of sin-al-shaykhukhah is also cold and dry. It has been also mentioned that during sine kuhulat production of sauda increases and its mizaj is cold and dry. According to the classification of age in Unani medicine, the menopausal age group comes under sine kuhulat so menopausal women are more prone to develop saudavi diseases like carcinoma, melancholia, depression, insanity which are common in this age. So all those methods which has been mentioned in Unani literature to correct the mizaj and prevent the ghalbae (excess) sauda will be beneficial in postmenopausal symptoms as well as in preventing the development of carcinoma.
