Biochemical Analysis of Siddha Drug “Uppu Parpam”
In the Siddha system, various effective Siddha drugs are mentioned in classical Siddha texts and manuscripts written by ancient Siddhar scientists who introduced it in India.Therefore identification and scientific validation of an effective Siddha drug to prevent and control the Paarisa vaayu (stroke or hemiplegia) is very essential in this current world.The symptoms of ‘paarisa vayu’ may be correlated with the symptoms of Hemiplegia in the modern medicine. Hemiplegia means paralysis one half of the body including lower half of the face, upper and lower extremities due to opposite side pyramidal lesion. The most common cause of Hemiplegia is Stroke, which damages the corticospinal tracts in one of the hemisphere of the brain. Other causes of hemiplegia include trauma, spinal cord injury, brain tumors and brain infections.So, I have selected a “UPPU PARPAM” is a poly mineral formulation which is exclusively indicated for Paarisa Vayu (hemiplegia) which is mentioned in Siddha literature of Kannusamy Parambarai Vaithiyam Pg.No.353. It was determined that Uppu parpam contains calcium, sulphate, chloride, carbonates, and ferrous iron, which improved therapeutic action based on biochemical analysis.
