In this era of standardization of Traditional system of medicines, the standardization of the Raw materials lead the show. As noted in our Siddha literature, the elements present in the macrocosm is said to be present in the microcosm as well. The whole universe is composed of the elements present in the periodic table and the ones yet to be identified, so as the human body. When these elements are deficient , the noble siddhars had finally opted for the Natural Bio-Ores as raw materials. Our siddha system of medicine had deviated a lot from the right path till the beginning of the eighteenth century when the synthetic chemical products and metals obtained from various metallurgical processes came into use as raw materials. But it’s awesome responsibility to eliminate the taints that are sticking to our Traditional systems of medicine.
