Siddha Healers

They are practitioners who follow the traditional healing system known as Siddha medicine. Siddha medicine is an ancient system of medicine that originated in South India. It is over 2,000 years old. Considered one of the oldest healing systems in the world, it is still practiced and respected in certain regions of India and beyond.

How Do Siddha Healers Heal?

Siddha healers are also known as Siddha Vaidyas. They use a holistic approach to healing that incorporates herbal medicine, diet, lifestyle changes, yoga and meditation. The foundation of Siddha medicine is based on the concept of balancing the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and restoring harmony within the body, mind and spirit.

Key Practices of Siddha Healers

1. Herbal Medicine

Siddha healers use a vast array of medicinal herbs, minerals and natural products to prepare medicines that are specific to each individual’s constitution and health condition.

2. Dietary Recommendations

Diet plays a crucial role in Siddha medicine. Siddha healers may advise specific dietary guidelines based on the individual’s dosha imbalance and health needs.

3. Yoga and Meditation

Siddha healing emphasises the practice of yoga and meditation to promote well-being and balance.

4. Marma Therapy

Marma points are vital energy points in the body. Siddha healers use marma therapy to release blockages and restore the flow of energy.

5. Siddha Diagnosis

Siddha practitioners use various methods for diagnosis, including pulse reading, tongue examination and physical observation. They are able to perceive the energy flow in a persons body and can determine where blocks, loss of energy or stagnation is arising.

6. Detoxification

Panchakarma is a form of detoxification therapy. Siddha healers use this practice to remove toxins from the body.

7. Spiritual Healing

Siddha healing acknowledges the interconnectedness of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of an individual. Spiritual healing and inner transformation are integral to the healing process.
