Siddha, homeopathy

  1. 1. BY:- FIROZQURESHI DEPT. PSYCHAITRIC NURSING
  2. 2. Siddha system of medicine is an ancient science, which belongs to Dravidian culture. Siddha system insists the scientific mode of life. Its preliminary aim is prevention and preservation of health. It is very useful in maintenance and restoration of good health. The foremost Siddhar Lord Siva, preached Siddha medicine to his followers. They are called as Siddhars. Then Siddhars developed the system further and called as Siddha system of medicine. They were advised to maintain the body health as well as mental health.
  3. 3. Its origin is also traced to mythological sources belonging to the Shaiva tradition. According to the tradition, Lord Shiva conveyed the knowledge of medicine to his wife Parvati. The knowledge was passed from her to Nandi and finally it was given to the Siddhas. The word Siddha denotes one who has achieved some extraordinary powers (siddhi). This achievement was related to the discipline of mind and its superiority over body, and was accomplished through both yoga and medicine. Thus siddhars (practitioners of Siddha) became the symbols of psychosomatic perfection and so the Siddha medicine became a combination of medicine and yoga
  4. 4. Generally the basic concepts of the Siddha medicine are almost similar to Ayurveda. The only difference appears to be that the Siddha medicine recognizes predominance of CONCEPTS SIDDHA AYURVEDA 1.Childhood vatham Kapam 2.Adulthood Pitham Pitham 3.Old age kapam vatham
  5. 5. According to the Siddha medicine various psychological and physiological functions of the body are attributed to the combination of seven elements Saram (plasma) responsible for growth, development and nourishment. cheneer (blood) responsible for nourishing muscles, imparting colour and improving intellect. ooun (muscle) responsible for shape of the body. .
  6. 6. kollzuppu (fatty tissue) responsible for oil balance and lubricating joints. enbu (bone) responsible for body structure and posture and movement. moolai (nerve) responsible for strength. sukila (semen) responsible for reproduction
  7. 7. NAAL OZHUKKAM (DAILY REGIMEN) Naal ozhukkam, the name itself denotes the daily regular activities that every person needs to carry out in a systemic manner to maintain the good and healthy body. The Siddha is the science of life not only for body but also for mind and soul. Thus Naal ozhukkam , gives the idea of daily activities, which are including the care of all the components.
  8. 8.  Kaalai Ezhuthal (Waking up) According to Siddha principle the exact time to wake up is 4-5 a.m. in the morning. After taking a good sleep, our brain and other vital organs get refreshed by good circulation and also that is the correct time to do the worship. As soon as we wake up from the bed, we have to see certain positive things like light, our right palm etc, which gives fulfillment and happiness throughout the day.
  9. 9.  Mala salam kazhithal(Excretion stools and urine) Always in our body there are plenty of interactions. Excretion of the waste product is an essential. We have to excrete our wastes like urine and faeces by the natural way. It implies the accuracy in digestion and excretion. Elimination of urine and faeces are the activities of Vaatham which are predominant in the morning. So it is the right time to excrete the both.
  10. 10.  Cleaning: Siddhars had mentioned the importance of cleaning after defecation. One must clean with clean water that need is to of clean the hands, eyes, ears, teeth after waking.  Pal thulakkal (cleaning of teeth):  Naakku suddhi (Tongue cleaning):  Eye care ( Kan ):  Nose care (Mookku):
  11. 11.  Thokkanam(Massage):  Ear care (Kaadhu):  Udal payirchi (Physical exercise)
  12. 12. Homeopathy (also spelled homoeopathy ) is a form of alternative medicine in which practitioners treat patients using highly diluted preparations that are believed to cause healthy people to exhibit symptoms that are similar to those exhibited by the patient.
  13. 13. The basic principle known as the law of similars is "let like be cured by like". It was first stated by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796. Principles of homeopathy are taken on his word and are not based on the scientific method. Homeopathic “remedies” are prepared by serial dilution with shaking by forceful striking on an elastic body, which homeopaths term succussion
  14. 14. Homeopathy is highly scientific, logical, safe, quick and extremely effective method of healing. It offers long lasting to permanent cure, treating the disease from its roots, for most of the ailments. Homeopathy is the most rational science with respect to its concepts of health, disease and cure. Homeopathy does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals the patient from within.
  15. 15. Homoeopathy is the system of treatment based on demonstrable laws and principles, which are - a) The Law of Similars - It is also called the Law of Cure. This law demonstrates that the selected remedy is able to produce a range of symptoms in a healthy person similar to that observed in the patient, thus leading to the principle of Similia Similibus Curentur i.e. let likes be treated by likes.
  16. 16.  b) The Law of Single Remedy - This law directs to choose and administer such a single remedy, which is most similar to the symptom complex of the sick person at a time. c) The Law of Minimum Dose - The similar remedy selected for a sick should be prescribed in minimum dose, so that when administered there is no toxic effects on the body. It just acts as a triggering and catalytic agent to stimulate and strengthen the existing defense mechanism of the body. It does not need to be repeated frequently.
  17. 17. Remedies are prepared from plant, animal, metal, and mineral substances. A mother tincture is made by macerating (soaking) the substance with alcohol and water; one drop of this product is combined with 99 drops of water and then "potentized" (energized) by succussion, or shaking.
  18. 18. The homeopathic medicines are prepared from a wide range of natural sources. Over 75% of the medicines originate from the vegetable kingdom, i.e. flowers, roots, leaves and the juice etc. Certain chemicals and minerals are also used to prepare certain medicines. For ex: Sulphuric acid, nitric acid. Most of the minerals and metals are used as a source of medicine, such as gold, silver, zinc, tin, iron and so on
  19. 19. This is a question that can't really be answered. It probably can be said that with a well-chosen remedy, tendencies can be diminished, a new permanent perspective may be gained, and choices that were invisible may now become prominent; in essence a remedy can increase our experience of freedom.
  20. 20.  Homeopathy may have the potential to change the expression of our DNA; to change the very cellular mechanisms of the nervous system. This can have a particularly significant impact on children and on adults who plan to have children in terms of preventing the genetic expression of undesirable behaviors and pathology.
