Abstract

Siddha medicine receives greater attention nowadays because of the immediate and permanent cure without any side effects. So, one such siddha medicine namely "Sirungi Parpam" has been selected for the present study to analyse it from the physicist point of view. The medicine Sirungi Parpam is mainly prepared from deer’s horn and is used for curing rickets, coughs, tuberculosis, small pox and measles. An attempt has been made to analyse the siddha medicine "Sirungi Parpam" by using UV spectroscopy and constant deviation spectrograph. The present study reveals that this medicine "Sirungi Parpam" contains calcium and iron as major components and traces of silicon and sodium. The calcium strengthens the bone and the iron improves the Haemoglobin percentage in blood. The Silicon also helps to improve the health. These favours the Sirungi Purpam to cure the diseases like tuberculosis and Rickets permanently.
