India has a wide range of ancient traditional medicine. It is well known that the culture of TAMIL is the ancient of all civilization and hence many historians say Tamil civilization is the CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION. All known cultures and civilizations of the past – Egyptian, Babylonian, Jewish, Greek, Indus -Valley etc – had their own equally glorious and useful systems of medicine and health care.
The Siddha system of medicine has its own philosophy, vast pharmacopoeia, diagnostic methods and med-care concepts. According to Siddha all things in this universe including human body are composed of five basic elements (Pancha bhutam) namely, earth, water, fire, air and vacuum (sky). The creation initiates as a single cell leading to cell division.There is a balanced condensation.
Health depends on the presence of a balanced state of the total body matrix including the balance of doshas, thadhus, malam and atma. Both the intrinsic and extrinsic factors can cause disturbance in the natural equilibrium giving rise to disease. The derangement of vaatam-pittam-kapam can happen by dietary indiscrimination, seasonal abnormalities, undesirable habits.
