Abundant studies have shown that spending and attending long-hours in health centers is regarded as a stressful experience for patients, visitors, and staffs. Therefore, using traditional Persian medicine’s recommendations in designing of health centers can be an effective approach to decreasing environmental stresses and improving its quality.

Now in the present study, in order to emphasize on the use of the traditional Persian medicine’s recommendations for designing health care facilities, Traditional Medicine’s recommendations related to environmental factors, including materials, lights, colors and images for treating patients was investigated. A descriptive-analytic method which was compiled by libraries procedure was applied and after examining the criteria that influence patients’ health, solutions to create a healing climate have been provided.
Results: According to the research findings, traditional medicine sources have emphasized on the effect of the environment on human’s health. This effect may be due to some reasons such as stimulation of human’s senses by environment and person's temperament.
Conclusion: Temperament based design is an appropriate way to improve public health that is the pillars of sustainable development.
