Siddha system, branch of Indian medicine is said to be as ancient as the Tamil language itself. Siddhar’s who are the masters of Siddha are full of holiness and divine, that the ordinary man feels very difficult to follow them. Unlike other systems of Indian medicine, Siddha system includes a number of minerals, metals and animal products in the same manner as that of herbs. And also it employs a numerous methods of purification for every single metal or mineral used and thereby ensure the safety of the medicine as well as the Siddha system itself. Unlike the herbs, the minerals are used in the form of Parpam and Chendooram, after grinding the minerals in various herbal juices and putting them in Pudam (i.e., thermal process). The authors of this paper have selected a Traditional Siddha medicine, ‘Rasa Chendooram’ to review it scientifically.
