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The toxicity studies for NKC was carried out (Unpublished article  and Masters thesis) by our Research team which supports the non - toxic nature of the NKC under prescribed dosage.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.

Siddha Herb Tinospora cordifolia protects from Radiation and Chemotherapy side effects

Siddha herbTinospora Cordifolia  Protects from Radiation & Chemotherapy Side Effects

Radiation treatments, combined with chemotherapy, are the standard regimen for the treatments of various cancers. Both of these treatments have very serious side effects, unfortunately, and a lot more people die from the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. If these treatments are needed, there have to be strategy to enhance the effects of chemotherapy and radiation to cancer cells, while at the same time protecting the normal healthy cells and cut down the side effects.

Tinospora cordifolia, commonly known as Guduchi in Ayurvedic Medicine, has been used in many preparations for the treatment of various ailments. It possesses anti-stress, antidiabetic, antiulcer, anti-oxidative, radio-protective, hepato-protective, immuno-modulator, chemo-protective, and learning & memory enhancing properties. A variety of bioactive constituents, with anti-oxidative and free radical scavenging properties, have been isolated from Tinospora cordifolia. One study was carried out to specifically look at the radio-protective potential of the Tinospora cordifolia extract against radiation-induced testicular injury in Swiss albino mice.
One group of male Swiss albino mice was exposed to 7.5 Gy gamma radiation, to serve as the irradiated control, while the other group received Tinospora cordifolia orally for 5 consecutive days half an hour before irradiation to serve as experimental. Exposure of animals to 7.5 Gy gamma radiation resulted in significant decrease in body weight, tissue weight, testes- body weight ratio, and tubular diameter of testes up to 15 days of irradiation. 100% mortality was recorded by day 17 in irradiated control, whereas all animals survived in experimental group. 100% survival of irradiated animal is a miraculous property of Tinospora cordifolia.  Animals treated with Tinospora cordifolia showed significant increase in body weight, tissue weight, testes- body weight ratio and tubular diameter at various intervals as compared to irradiated group. Radiation-induced histological lesions in testicular architecture were observed as more severe in irradiated control than animals pre-treated with Tinospoa cordifolia. Tinospora cordifolia further protected the architect of tests and histopathological changes were minimized.
All the animals who got pre-treatment with Tinospora cordifolia survived the experimental periods of 30 days without any sickness. At the same time, irradiated animals exhibited sickness within 2–4 days with 71.43% mortality during 7 days and the remaining animals died within the next 10 days after exposure. Radiation is a potent toxicant and whole-body exposure of it can alter the general physiology. In other studies Tinospora cordifolia has shown to have radio-sensitizing effects to cancer cells with protective effects on the normal healthy cells. This makes Tinospora cordifolia an excellent choice to be used with radiation treatment. It can potentially cut down the side effects of radiation treatment, make cancerous cells more vulnerable to radiation, while at the same time protecting healthy normal cells.

Tinospora cordifolia has also shown chemo-protective actions. In another study Tinospora extract was as good as doxyrubicin in killing cancer cells. Doxyrubicin is a chemotherapy drugs with lots of side effects. Using herbs like Tinospora cordifolia is a win-win for the patients, as he/she cuts the side effects of the treatment and even enhances the potential toxic effects of these treatments to cancer cells.

All my patients who are undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments, I advise them to be of radio protective and chemo-preventive herbs like Tinospora cordifolia, Holy basil and Amla.
