Happy Diabetic day -Nov 14 Siddha Thoughts

On Diabetes day let all of us understand that we have empirical evidence that Siddha answers for treating diabetes. Let us move to the next level that we have very good formulations to combat the complications of Diabetes too. Unlike other medical systems Siddha formulations complements antioxidant activity as many of the formulation has a load of phenolic components. We can combat perarthritis with oil and Thokkanam.Balanitis could be managed with good wound healing oils and counselling to prevent. Neuritis with little Yoga and Neurostimulants in Siddha. But all the above could be maintained by Theran life style advocacy. This is shared in the capacity of a treating physician and not a researcher friends.As an administrator I have been insisting this to my fellow officer's group. Soon we may start Diabetic complication clinic in which every complication will be treated with empathy and data will be generated to prove us before all pathy

Svientific validation of siddha medicine Nilavembu kudineer

Scientific Validation of  Siddha Medicine Nilavembu Kudineer:
Nilavembu Kudineer is a combination of  9 plants. Andrographis paniculata (seemai Nilavembu) , Vetiveria zizanoides (Vettiver) Andropogon muricatus (Vilamicchaver), Santalum album (sandhanam), Trichosanthes cucumerina (Peipudal), Cyperus rotundus (Korai kizahngu), Zingiber officialis (Chukku), Piper longum (Milagu), and Mollugo cerviana (parapadkam). Each one ingredient has its marker compounds which determines bioactivity of each chemical molecules.  Based on this NKC was formulated and gifted by the Siddhars. Here, the major ingredient Andrographis paniculata, contains Andrographolide, an antiviral agent (published in peer reviewed journals) which mainly acts on the different types of structural proteins / membrane proteins of different strains of Dengue (Type I,II,III,IV) and  deactivates the viral replication  (bioinformatics docking study Nithya et al., 2014 - our Research Team, https://www.idosi.org/wjam/1(2)14/2.pdf). The rest of the ingredients act as a calayst, immunomodulatory and the complications of Dengue (needs to be proved by invitro and invivo studies). The whole hypothesis is called “Synergism”/ Synergistic activity” (Modern Scientific concept). This concept has been accepted by Universal Scientific community. NKC was also formulated based on the above mentioned concept. 
The toxicity studies for NKC was carried out (Unpublished article  and Masters thesis) by our Research team which supports the non - toxic nature of the NKC under prescribed dosage. 
Our ISM Research Team (Anna University - KBC Research Centre) has been working on Siddha Medicines   such as Adhathoda Manapagu/ kudineer churnam, Gandhaga Mezhugu, Annabedi Chenduram, Bavana panchakula Thailam, Kattu, in collaboration with NIS, CTMR, Govt. Siddha Medical college for the past 5 years. From the Scientific data (includes published & unpublished)  which we have collected from our biochemical, invitro, invivo experiments showed the efficacy and potential of our own (Tamil) Traditional Siddha Medicines.
The preliminary results about NKC were already discussed with Our Health secretary and State Licensing authority (Indian Medicine) and we requested for funding for further research on NKC.
As a Scientist working on Scientific validation of Siddha Medicine I strongly support the NKC scientifically (Preliminary data).
NKC is one and only antiviral drug, gift of Siddhars and prescribed by representatives of Siddhars (Siddha Practitioners).
If anybody wants, we can show, share and explain the scientific data about the Nilavembu kudineer anytime with anybody.
Thanks & Regards,
