Ayurveda is the original system of the Indian subcontinent including Tamil Nadu. Siddha is a linguistically and politically developed medical system around the 1920s. Before 1920 there was no Siddha, it was all Ayurveda, precisely Tamil Ayurveda. As most of the Siddha words are nothing but Sanskrit terminologies.Jul 6, 2020
Siddha was popular in ancient India and is believed to be the oldest medicinal system in the world. The system was developed by ‘Siddhars’ who were supposed to be saints with spiritual powers in ancient India. Both Siddha and Ayurveda recognize that disease is caused by the imbalance of the three humors.
Comparing Siddha and Ayurveda, both are best. It depends upon the nature of disease. For the disease like nerve problems, muscle problems etc you could use ayurvedic treatment. Whereas for diseases in respiratory, digestion related etc you could use Siddha types of medicine.Dec 15, 2012
