Siddha is an ancient system of medicine prevalent in south India. The word ‘Siddha’ comes from the Tamil word that precisely translates to ‘Perfection’. In Siddha, every individual is considered as a microcosm in The Universe. The Siddha system of treatment is not only a system of philosophy and healing but also a way of life in harmony with nature. It is one of the oldest systems of medicine that existed for over 5000 years in Tamil Nadu, India. Unlike allopathy, Siddha treatment focuses on the treatment of diseases as well as prevention of illnesses.
The human body is made up of five natural elements – Earth, Space, Water, Fire, and Air. The humors or doshas namely Vatha, Pitha, and Kapha, that exist in our body are a combination of these five natural elements. Any disease showing symptoms in the physical body is basically due to an imbalance of these natural elements. Siddha treatment is oriented to revitalize and rejuvenate the body organs that cause the disease and maintains the ratio of the three doshas, Vatha, Pitha, and Kapha. The Siddha treatment combines the remedies along with food to alter the diet and altogether, the lifestyle.
Siddha Treatment uses herbs, minerals, and animal products, as its resources and creates various types of external applications. Siddha is a comprehensive system that gives undivided attention to body, mind, & spirit, and strives to restore the inherent balance of the individual. This concept of Siddha medicine and treatment preaches the do’s and don’ts in daily life for a happy and healthy living.
