Gunapaadam (Siddha Pharmacology)

Gunapaadam (குணபாடம்) refers to a thorough examination of medications. Siddhars (சித்தர்கள்), the finest scientists of ancient times in both material and spiritual dimensions, devised Siddha medicine.

Gunapaadam (குணபாடம், Siddha pharmacology) deals with the ancient chemico-philosophical system’s full topic. Nilam (நிலம், earth), Neer (நீர், water), Thee (தீ, fire), Vali (காற்று, air), and Visumbu (ஆகாயம், space) are the fundamental components of panchabhudham (பஞ்சபூதம்), which make up the cosmos and human beings. As a result, Gunapaadam (Siddha pharmacology) is based mostly on panchabhudham (பஞ்சபூதம்) and Suvai (சுவை, taste).

Moolapporutkkal (மூலப்பொருட்கள் , crude medications) are classified into five categories according to the panchabhudham concept.

  • Nila Kooru நிலம் (Earth)
  • Neer Kooru நீர் (Water)
  • Thee Kooru தீ (Fire)
  • Vali Kooru காற்று (Air)
  • Agaayam Kooru ஆகாயம் (Space)
