Siddha Vaidyam & the Kitchen Medicines

Siddha Vaidyam is not just the oldest and the first medical system that ever existed since the prehistoric period but its a science and proof of intense spirituality and Siddhars show the immense possibility of a human beings.

This medicine was developed by the scientists of ancient days named Siddhars who gained their knowledge through deep meditation and thus arousing the serpent power that is hidden within every human. These are humans who have reached the blissful state of human life and achieved the state of ultimate knowledge.

The natural ingredients of the Siddha health system herbs are much better and free of side effects than the factory made chemical stuffed products. Simple Siddha remedies can be very effective in relieving symptoms, and preventing further development of a disorder. Anything that is easily available in your kitchen or around your home, and has a medicinal use, may be used as a kitchen and home remedy. When used for medical purposes, herbs, vegetables, fruits, spices, grains and oils are understood to be home remedies.

May Lord Vaitheesvarar bless you with greater health and wealth

Science & Art of Drinking Water

How to drink water

Drinking water every hour once in a tumbler - South Indian cup measurement (1/4 of our stomach) for 
heaty (pittham) type body and half tumbler for watery (kapham) type body during day time 
especially during summer seasons and at tropical climate countries will balancing your chakra's heat and protect your 
organs. Most of the time the root cause of physical malfunction happened because of the excess of 
radiated from the chakras (chakras are energy 
vortexes center located along spinal column which will 
radiate heat for life existence). In some cases a 
particular chakra can spin faster and radiate excess of heat. 

 So the proper way to drink water is not 7 to 8 glasses of water p/day, since the glass sizes are many but 1/4 stomach at a time and to drink every hour once (We should be aware that, there are many 
people died because of water retention in
 lungs). I hope Siddha tradition followers will start to share this important message around that one should take only 
1/4 stomach of water at a time at the 
interval of every 1 hour.            
In most cases of throat infections, your tonsils get swollen up. At this point, most doctors suggest that you get them removed as they cause unnecessary pain and discomfort. They consider it another "useless" organ like the Appendix, and thus want to get it out of the way.

Rather than being a cause for concern, the tonsils actually act as a barrier. They prevent whatever infection you have incurred from entering your digestive system, thus keeping any serious problems at bay. But they get swollen up in return.

Now, you must have noticed that in India, it is considered bad manners to sip the glass/tumbler. Such a glass would be become invalid for further use unless it is properly washed. The basic reason that will come to your mind is that why should someone drink from a used glass? But there is a deeper significance...
Though, the primary reason is to avoid any infections to be communicated from one person to the other, another factor that must be considered is the regular cleansing of your tonsils. When you drink water bending your neck and let it flow from top, it obviously flows over your tonsils and cleans them. Thus, it will wash away unnecessary food particles and maintain your throat in order.

Importance of Water Storage

Drink water from Earthen pots during day time 

 If water is being violently pumped and is travelling to your house through many turns in pipes, with all these pressures bends and turns, much negativity happens to the water. But while water has memory, it also has a way of unfolding itself back into its original state. If you just leave this tap water undisturbed for an hour, the negativity will undo itself. After much experimentation has been done on water the researchers have found that water has memory where it remembers everything that it touches. 

That is why our forefathers of South India are very concerned with how we store the water. When it comes to storing water, the earthen pots occupy the primary position. 
Storing water in an earthen 
pot is the best method. Earthen pot not only makes the water chilled during summer but also provides healing elements of Earth. More importantly the earthen pot transfers the coolness to the water according to the 
climatic conditions; which is the special quality of earthen pot that no other container has. The chilled water 
of earthen pots during summer has no other replacement in quenching the thirst and satisfaction of drinking 

Drink water from copper Vessel at Night time

 If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for three to four hours, the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general. Drinking water stored in copper vessel have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties and kills micro organisms. The water becomes a valuable electrolyte to maintain balance in our electrical body, and gets energized making it more bio-available and tastier.

Miracles of Copper Metal

Siddha Masters acclaimed copper as one of the most valuable elements in earth. They referred copper as Lord Shiva’s energy transmission element. In many siddha books we can notice, they have mentioned copper been vastly used in various spiritual rituals compared to silver and gold. Siddha Master Korakar states if Gold and Silver considered as body then copper will be the soul. There is a rule written in scriptures, those who crafting metallic statues of gods, must include certain percentage of copper in it. Otherwise the sculpture will not have the ability to transform divine energy.
