Introduction and Origin

Siddha is one of the oldest medicinal systems originated in Tamil Nadu. The word ‘Siddha’ is derived from a Tamil word ‘Siddhi’ which means ‘achievement’ or ‘perfection’. The Siddha medicinal system not just focuses on treating the disease but it also takes into account the patient behaviour, environmental aspects, age, habits and physical condition. The practice is majorly used in Tamil speaking parts of the world and has been promoted by eighteen siddhars (saintly people who practised Siddha systems).
