THE SIDDHA MYTH
There is wide spread belief amongst Indians and allopath doctors that the use of siddha medicines are unsafe and cause heavy metal toxicity leads to liver and kidney failures. Medicines prepared in proper and perfect manner are sure to be efficacious and free from side effects. Metals are first purified and blended with herbal juices specified in the texts, they change their nature from metallic to organo-metallic complex which is then subjected to many pudams (intense temperature), which not only removes their metallic nature but will change them to a state which is adaptable to the human body without side effects.
Starting from raw materials (procuring in right season and appropriate place) to the finished product, we strictly adhere to the siddha parameters along with latest laboratory standards. The safety profile starts from standard purification method to nullify the toxic effect and make it in a safer form. Thereafter processing according to the literature, convert them to most absorbable form for internal administration and assimilation without any side effect.
Now a day, all finished siddha medicine were investigated as per W.H.O guidelines in modern laboratories and then only given to patients. Thus this time tested medicines are safe moreover has high efficacy does not produce any complication which could be witnessed in blood investigations after months. However siddha system pays more importance to the beneficial effect on kidney protective, hepato-protective and hepatic cell regenerator.
Note: Please avoid any sort of self-medication and always consult a Siddha Doctor before taking any Siddha medicine.
The analogy: If there are one hundred metallo-minerals combination in Ayurveda to cure a disease, Siddhars just formulated one medicine to elicit 100 diseases. The use of single medicine for 180 different diseases are designed by Siddhars and many formulations have the shell life of more than 500 years. The Tridhosham theory and nomenclature of the diseases in the two systems may seem similar but differs a lot in utility.
