Abstract
PARALLELL ANALYSIS OF HYPOTHYROIDISM WITH SIDDHA DIAGNOSTIC TERMINOLOGY KANDAKARAPPAAN

Sangeetha S.* and Sundar Ahmed B.

ABSTRACT

Siddha system of medicine is considered to be the traditional system of medicine evolved since ancient time. In Siddha, the diseased state in a human body is classified based on the Tridosha pathology (Vatham, Pitham and Kabham) that seems poles apart from the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Kanda karappaan is a Siddha medical terminology which has been described under diseases pertaining to skin (Karappaan). This study is an attempt to have a parallel correlation of the symptoms of hypothyroidism in modern medicine to the terminologies Kanda karappaan in Siddha text Yugi vaithya Chinthamani. The detailed analysis of the symptoms with the traditional terminologies in the Siddha literature have paved a way to the understanding that though the disease is referred by different name in traditional and modern medicine the symptoms get well correlated and help in the better understating of the mode of diagnosis and treatment.

Keywords: Siddha, Kanda karappaan, Hypothyroidism, Traditional medicine, Ancient Indian literature.
