RAN Therapy in siddha for AIDS


RAN this acronym stands for 1Rasagandhi mezhugu-R, 2Amukkara chooranam - A and 3Nellikkai Ilagam - N, now the most popular Siddha combination for HIV in Tamil Nadu having Immunogenic and adaptogenic properties. RAN therapy is given to HIV patients in the Asia's biggest AIDS hospital at TB Sanatorium, Tambaram, Chennai, South India .

Deivanayagam and co-workers in 2001 could establish laboratory evidence supporting the clinical improvement in more than 60 % of the patients who received either RAN alone or in combination with opportunistic infection (OI) controlling drugs. But RAN could not save those with brain infection, or septicaemia.

Since April 2002, the family health clinic of Health India Foundation (HIF), a registered non-governmental charity, has been running an out-patient service for HIV/AIDS at Red Cross Hospital, Chennai. The author, during his tenure as medical officer at HIF for 13 months have himself closely observed and monitored the safety and effect of RAN therapy in patients with mild to moderate HIV disease (Wilson, 2010). Fritts et al., 2008 in his review article from USA have included the pilot trial conducted with RAN therapy.


1Rasagandhi mezhugu (RGM) is polyherbo–mineral formulation in wax form containing 40 herbs.

2 Poly herbal medicated powder prepared using Withania somnifera Dunal (winter cherry) as the chief ingredient.

3Poly herbal electuary prepared using Phyllanthus Emblica, Linn. (Indian gooseberry) as the chief ingredient
