Waram-i-Halaq is synonymously known as Pharyngitis. It is defined as the inflammation of Ghisha-e- mukhati (mucous membrain) of halaq (Pharynx). According to the 2000 National Ambulatory Medical Care survey, the pharyngitis accounts for 1.1 percent of visits to the primary care settings and ranked in the top 20 reported primary diagnoses. There is a general perception that Unani treatment provides relief only in chronic diseases and has nothing to offer relief in acute diseases as compared to allopathic treatment. However, this is absolutely incorrect and there are certain Unani formulations which can provide instant symptomatic relief in acute diseases. Keeping this in view, the drug “laiq sapistan khayashambari” was selected for its clinical validation in Waram-i-Halaq.
