Where there is existence of life, there is a requirement of healing. Whenever we fall ill or come across any accident we take medicines or apply certain things. These intakes and applications which are made belong to the science of healing.
These remedies are of different form, some are composed of chemicals and some of natural products. Depending on their characteristics there are many forms of medicines. Among them the most common ones are
Allopathic Medicine is currently the most widely used form of healing. For any small or big health issues people run to the chemist to purchase these small packets of drugs. No doubt it is the most effective way of handling infections but then a majority of human ailments are self-generated. They come from within the system. For such chronic ailments, the Allopathic system of medicine has not proven to be good. Allopathy can only manage the disease. It can never really uproot the disease from the root. It is basically an instant treatment with no guarantee for its complete eradication.
You keep on plucking the leaves of a tree and this tree will never end…because growth seems on its leaves and branches but the reason for this growth is only one- the Roots. Same applies on Diseases! Modern day medical sciences never understand this thing and they keep on suppressing the signs and symptoms alone- not concerned with the Root Cause of a disease.
A state of emergency for sure demands the help of allopathic treatments. But, in general if you want to eradicate or throw away some problem or disease then go for other forms of medicines.
Ayurveda is a form of healing which belongs to the Vedic times. It has a strong hold on its properties and also has a influential history.
Ayurvedic medicines deal with permanently healing the person and effectively treating the disease. Moreover, it also suggests a suitable lifestyle for improving our overall health. These medicines are prepared from valuable plants and herbs. They also use extracts of fruits, vegetables, spices, etc, which helps in curing diseases without any side effects. Ayurvedic medicines provide relatively slow but permanent relief, because they focus on the originating cause to cure the affected area and related system of our body.
Whenever you come across any chronic or minor disease and until and unless there is an emergency of instant results, prefer ayurveda. If Ayurveda becomes a living reality in our lives and our societies, people can live like gods.
The form of Siddha medicine is said to originate from Southern India, fundamentally Tamil Nadu. This is one of the unique ways of treating and is said to posses’ miraculous capabilities. It is infact, the most traditional and oldest form of healing. Those who practiced this form of medicine were known as siddhars. Siddhars were spiritual adepts who possessed the ashta siddhis, or the eight supernatural powers. Agastya is considered the first siddha and the guru of all siddhars; the siddha system is believed to have been handed over to him by Murugan, son of Shiva and Parvati.
Siddha is also a natural form of healing but then it is quite different from what Ayurveda is. It is much closer to the body’s energy system than Ayurveda is. Ayurveda is more disease-oriented, whereas Siddha is more health-oriented and simply about rejuvenation. It is mainly about strengthening the inner sources of the body and activating the body in a certain way. The healing energy in this comes from the yogic science which aims at cleansing one’s elements. This form of healing is directly proportional to sadhana.
After all these discussions about the forms of curing, siddha seems to be the most effective, but then is difficult to practice. One can always try to adopt this method of healing. If not successful in Siddha, prefer ayurveda first for any of your health issues, until and unless it is an instant emergency.
LET’S BE NATURAL AND STAY HEALTHY AND HAPPY!
