Abstract

PARALLEL ANALYSIS OF ORUTHALAI VAATHAM IN SIDDHA LITERATURE WITH MIGRAINOUS NEURALGIA

M. Mahendiran* and Gowri V.

ABSTRACT

Siddha system is one of the ancient systems of medicine with enormous historical evidence. Since this system of medicine has been originated in South India, its medical philosophies were written in palm scripts in poetic forms which cannot be easily interpreted by lay man. According to this system, the disease classification is based on the concepts of Tridosha pathology (Vatham, Pitham and Kabham) that seems poles apart from those of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) when viewed afar. This review article is an attempt to correlate clinically, the symptoms of ―Oruthalai vatham”, a disease given in the Siddha text Yugi vaithya chinthaamani with that of the Migrainous neuralgia in contemporary science. Through careful interpretation and comparative analysis of the condition it can be concluded that even the mediocre signs and symptoms of „Oruthalai vatham‟ can be correlated well with that of Migrainous neuralgia. This analysis would further provide better insight towards the diagnosis, management of the disease “Oruthalai vatham‖ as mentioned in Siddha literature.

Keywords: Siddha, Migrainous neuralgia, Oruthalai vatham, Yugi vaithya chinthaamani.
