[ Editor's note ]

A new colleague has been having itchy scalp, with sporadic dandruff. There are also occasional pustular pimples on the scalp. He has been relying on tar shampoos to control the itching and flaking. The effect of the shampoos have been declining over the months. He tried the Siddha hair oil once and is quite impressed with the result. He mentioned that it immediately calms and cools his head, stops the itching. Over the next few days, nothing else was applied on the scalp except for the daily shampoo. He noticed that the itching has reduced by about 90%, dandruff and scalp pimples significantly reduced.

[ Siddha Medicine ]

Siddha medicinal system is one of the oldest systems of medicine on planet earth. It was developed by the famed Siddhars of South India. These Siddhars were said to be spiritually evolved beings who in their zeal to serve humanity developed this system, and it is a very dynamic one using herbs, minerals etc. The texts and manuscripts of this system is in Tamil, a language of rich literary heritage. Lack of translation into English and other languages resulted in this system being confined to Southern states of India. Efforts of the National Institute of Siddha to create an awareness of this system have started bearing fruit.

The basic philosophy of this system is akin to that of Ayurveda. It aims at re-establishing the lost harmony of vata, pitta and kapha in an individual. Hundreds of locally found herbs are used in making Siddha remedies which have been used to treat all sorts of diseases ranging from common cold to menstrual disorders to cancer.
