Abstract
PARALLELL ANALYSIS OF NADUKKU VATHAM IN SIDDHA LITERATURE WITH THAT OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE

Saraswathi B.*

ABSTRACT

The Siddha system of medicine has its origin in South India and is rooted and grounded in Tamil culture as a combination of ancient medicinal practices and spiritual disciplines. Recently there is an emerging increase in traditional medicine research primarily based on phytochemical and pharmacological aspects. Still there exists a lacuna in the analysis of ancient literature which is the backbone of this system and has its own principles and philosophies. The present review is a literary research on the parallel analysis of Nadukku vatham which is one among the eighty types of Vatha disease with that of Parkinson‟s disease (PD) of conventional medicine. All the signs and symptoms of Nadukku vatham that have been indicated in the selected ancient texts Yugi vaithiya kaviyam, Para rasa sekaram, Agathiyar-2000, Dhanvantri vaithiyam, Therayar vaagadam were analysed, interpreted and compared. Through this review, it has been revealed that though these literature were written by ancient sages of South India thousands of years ago, it is quite interesting to know that these age old poems have revealed its correlation with modern texts and terminologies.

Keywords: Siddha, Tamil culture, Literary research, Medicine, Nadukku vatham, South India.
