Data Sources: Urdu and English version of Unani literary books were utilized. Original e-research papers were used as databases.
Limitation: The present paper only ascribed therapeutic principles of liver disease mainly. Although hepatoprotective drugs have also been mentioned in this paper.
Result & Conclusion: According to the Unani Medicine, the pathological changes in the liver are caused mainly by derangement in the temperament of humours and accumulation of mawad-e-fasida (morbid material). So therapeutic measures aims at, restoring the equilibrium of various elements by counteracting the effect of pathological temperament existing at the time of disease with medicines and diet, supported with Ilaj bit-tadbeer (regimenal therapy) and then expulsion of raddi akhlat (morbid humours) by istafraag (evacuation) from the body. Kasni (Cichorium intybus), Ward (Rosa damascene), Zafran (Crocus sativus) & others, have been proven for their hepatoprotective activity in animal models.

Key words: Abnormal temperament Liver, Complementary medicine, Graecoarab medicine, Hepatoprotective drugs, Sue Mizaj, Unani: hepatoprotective, Unani medicine,
