A medicine in loss of identity

Abstract : This short article analyses the changes that affect the practice of sddha medicine, notably in viewpoint of its remedies that avoid the use of metals and metallic salts. If siddha practitioners justify this avoidance for the sake of toxicity related to these ingredients, others denounce this attitude as the evidence of an impoverishment of the siddha knowledge.
