Ayurvedic v/s Siddha Medicines; How are they different? 

ayurveda and siddha

Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani are the three different medicinal systems developed in India, alternative to the Western medicinal system. If your medicinal needs are urgent, allopathy is the best for fastest cure.

But they only help you to manage the disease according to the symptoms displayed. They will not help you to get rid of the disease completely.

If your ailments are chronic, you better consult Ayurvedic or Siddha practitioners to know the root and cause of the diseases by going within, beyond the symptoms to the inner self.

You can even buy Ayurvedic medicines and Siddha medicines online for a magical cure of your diseases.

Both Aruyvedic and Siddha treatments consider imbalance of the three humours (vata, pitta and kapha) to be the root cause of all the body and health issues. Siddha Vaidya is believed to be the oldest medicinal system in India, with a Dravidian origin.

Siddha is unique to South India, specifically to Tamil Nadu. All the literature and scripts of Siddha Vaidya were written in Tamil Language. Mythologies state that Siddha Vaidya belonged to the Shaiva tradition.

Lord Shiva had the knowledge of medicine which he conveyed to his wife, Parvathi, who passed it onto Nandi and finally to the Siddhas. As per the tradition there were 18 Siddhas and among them Agasthiyar or Agasthya Yogi came to be known as the “father of Siddha medicinal system”.

Siddhas believed that a healthy body only comes from a healthy soul. Thus, as different from the Ayurvedic medicines that aim as diseases, Siddha aims at the health of a person.

They are most connected to the energy systems of the body, they try to strengthen the inner sources of the body to cure the disease. To develop a healthy soul they practise yogic exercises, meditations, fasting etc to attain power to cure the ailments.

Siddha is evolved from the concepts of Yogic science, that puts cleansing of one’s elements as its prior fundamentals.

Santhigiri Siddha Medical College (SSMC) situated in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, was the first Siddha institute established outside Tamil Nadu. Santhigiri college has thousands of Siddha medicines produced by the professional Siddha practitioners.

Ayurvedic Medicines have their origin in the Vedic era with its medicinal secrets formulated from Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita.

Ayurvedic practitioners believe that prevention of diseases can be done with proper alignment of one’s lifestyles. The word Ayurveda means “knowledge of life”.

Ayurveda is the understanding of our lives, the understanding of our bodies as an accumulation of elements gathered from the planet. Thus, the nature of the planet and pancha boothas or five elements (fire, water, air, earth and space) of the planet are manifested in each of our physical bodies.

So to cure the ailments Ayurveda moves deep within the body to make the lifestyles of the individual in perfect harmony with the whole system.

Ayurveda does not treat the body but the life as a whole, what we eat, what we breathe, what we drink etc are all organised in this holistic approach.

There are many Ayurvedic hospitals, clinics and medical institutions situated in different parts of Kerala state. 

If you have enough time to cure your chronic disease by diagnosing the root cause and ripping it out of your body, buy Siddha medicines online as they are unique and less available in local stores.

There are many e-commerce websites that sell Siddha medicines and Ayurvedic medicines online, search for them and rejuvenate your body and soul with natural and ancient medical care.
