Siddha Medicine


Mother of all Medicine

Food is Medicine and Medicine is Food

Siddha Medicine is one of the oldest medical system in the world which is believed to be originated more than 10,000 years ago. Siddha system is the science which takes human and nature as part of closed system.

Mother of all Diseases in Toxic Accumulation- Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Linus Pauling

Nearly all diseases can be traced to a nutritional deficiency.

Generally the basic concepts of the Siddha medicine are similar to Ayurveda. The only difference appears to be that the siddha medicine recognizes predominance of Vaadham, Pitham and Kabam in childhood, adulthood and old age, respectively, whereas in Ayurveda, it is totally reversed: Kabam is dominant in childhood, Vaatham in old age and Pitham in adults.

According to the Siddha medicine, various psychological and physiological functions of the body are attributed to the combination of seven elements: first is ooneer (plasma) responsible for growth, development and nourishment; second is cheneer (blood) responsible for nourishing muscles, imparting colour and improving intellect; the third is oon (muscle) responsible for shape of the body; fourth is koluppu/Kozhuppu (fatty tissue) responsible for oil balance and lubricating joints; fifth is elumbu (bone) responsible for body structure and posture and movement; sixth is elumbu majjai (bone marrow) responsible for formation of blood corpuscles; and the last is sukkilam (semen) responsible for reproduction. Like in Ayurveda, in Siddha medicine also, the physiological components of the human beings are classified as Vaadham (air), Pitham (fire) and Kabam(earth and water).

Concept of disease and cause
It is assumed that when the normal equilibrium of the three humors — Vaadham, Pittham and Kabam — is disturbed, disease is caused. The factors assumed to affect this equilibrium are environment, climatic conditions, diet, physical activities, and stress. Under normal conditions, the ratio between Vaadham, Pittham, and Kabam are 4:2:1, respectively.[13]

According to the Siddha medicine system, diet and lifestyle play a major role in health and in curing diseases. This concept of the Siddha medicine is termed as pathiyam and apathiyam, which is essentially a list of "do's and don'ts".

In diagnosis, examination of eight items is required which is commonly known as "enn vakaith thervu". These are:

Na (tongue): black in Vaatham, yellow or red in pitham, white in kabam, ulcerated in anaemia.

Varnam (colour): dark in Vaatham, yellow or red in pitham, pale in kabam.

Kural (voice): normal in Vaatham, high-pitched in pitham, low-pitched in kabam, slurred in alcoholism.

Kan (eyes): muddy conjunctiva, yellowish or red in pitham, pale in kabam.

Thodal (touch): dry in Vaatham, warm in pitham, chill in kapha, sweating in different parts of the body.

Malam (stool): black stools indicate Vaatham, yellow pitham, pale in kabam, dark red in ulcer and shiny in terminal illness.

Neer (urine): early morning urine is examined; straw color indicates indigestion, reddish-yellow color in excessive heat, rose in blood pressure, saffron color in jaundice, and looks like meat washed water in renal disease.

Naadi (pulse): the confirmatory method recorded on the radial artery.

The drugs used by the Siddhars could be classified into three groups: thavaram (herbal product), thadhu (inorganic substances) and jangamam (animal products). The Thadhu drugs are further classified as: uppu (water-soluble inorganic substances or drugs that give out vapour when put into fire), pashanam (drugs not dissolved in water but emit vapour when fired), uparasam (similar to pashanam but differ in action), loham (not dissolved in water but melt when fired), rasam (drugs which are soft), and ghandhagam (drugs which are insoluble in water, like sulphur).

The drugs used in siddha medicine were classified on the basis of five properties: suvai (taste), gunam (character), veeryam (potency), pirivu (class) and mahimai (action).

According to their mode of application, the siddha medicines could be categorized into two classes:

Internal medicine was used through the oral route and further classified into 32 categories based on their form, methods of preparation, shelf-life, etc.

External medicine includes certain forms of drugs and also certain applications (such as nasal, eye and ear drops), and also certain procedures (such as leech application). It also classified into 32 categories.

The treatment in siddha medicine is aimed at keeping the three humors in equilibrium and maintenance of seven elements. So proper diet, medicine and a disciplined regimen of life are advised for a healthy living and to restore equilibrium of humors in diseased condition. Saint Thiruvalluvar explains four requisites of successful treatment. These are the patient, the attendant, physician and medicine. When the physician is well-qualified and the other agents possess the necessary qualities, even severe diseases can be cured easily, according to these concepts.

The treatment should be commenced as early as possible after assessing the course and cause of the disease. Treatment is classified into three categories: devamaruthuvum (Divine method); manuda maruthuvum (rational method); and asura maruthuvum (surgical method). In Divine method, medicines like parpam, Chendooram, guru, kuligai made of mercury, sulfur and pashanams are used. In the rational method, medicines made of herbs like churanam, kudineer, or vadagam are used. In surgical method, incision, excision, heat application, blood letting, or leech application are used.

According to therapies the treatments of siddha medicines could be further categorized into following categories such as purgative therapy, emetic therapy, fasting therapy, steam therapy, oleation therapy, physical therapy, solar therapy, blood-letting therapy, yoga therapy, etc.

Varmam are vital points in the body that act as energy transformers or batteries. They form centres for boosting the vital life-force Uyir Sakthi flow through the intricate nadi system of the body. Nature, by its design, has protected these vital centres by placing them deep inside the body or by covering them with tissues inaccessible to normal attempts of breach.

Varmam is a holistic therapy on its own and tackles the body, mind and spirit. A varmam expert understands the underlying links between the body, vital life-force and the mind.

Varmams have been classified based on the type of pressure needed to injure: 
(a) Paduvarmam (varmam due to injury), 
(b) Thodu varmam (by touch); Thattu varmam (by blows); 
(c) Thaduvu varmam (by massage); 
(d) Nakku varmam (by licking i.e. tongue massage); and 
(e) Nokku (by staring). 

The widely used and recognised ones are the 12 Paduvarmams and 96 Thoduvarmams; there is less consistency with the other categories simply because of the way of application or the deeper knowledge needed to apply them. In these categories, the Nokku varmam is rarely seen practiced, as those masters who were able to do this are almost extinct. Nokku Varmam exploits the 3-d sense of balance by using subtle movements to induce the eyes of the recipient.

A varmam therapist needs to have a deep knowledge about the body's nerves and physical structure to do an effective treatment. There are only a few therapists existing in this world, and the modern siddha world is trying to preserve this art of healing.

Siddha today
Siddha has lost its popularity after modern medicine was introduced, as a scientific medical system, even in Tamil Nadu. Still, there are a few ardent followers of the system who prefer Siddha for only a few diseases like jaundice. After some modern doctors, such as Dr. Ramalingam, IMPCOPS, president, Chennai, C.N. Deivanayagam, tried to popularize the Siddha system,a few modern doctors have started suggesting Siddha. In 2012, VA Shiva Ayyadurai, a Tamilian and MIT systems scientist, launched an educational program for medical doctors through the Chopra Center with Deepak Chopra which integrates concepts from traditional systems medicine such as Siddha, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, with systems science and systems biology.

The Tamil Nadu state runs a 5.5-year course in Siddha medicine (BSMS: Bachelor in Siddha Medicine and Surgery). The Indian Government also gives its focus on Siddha, by starting up medical colleges and research centers like National Institute of Siddha and Central Council for Research in Siddha.

There has been renewed interest in Siddha, as many started feeling modern medicine is not complete and changing its stands/theories frequently. The health minister of Tamil Nadu in 2007 claimed that Siddha medicine is effective for chikungunya.

Commercially, Siddha medicine is practiced by Siddha family doctors (traditional practitioners), often referred in Tamil as vaithiyars, have transferred knowledge to their children, and
medically certified Siddha doctors who have studied in government Siddha medical colleges.


Food is Medicine and Medicine is Food

West is scientific

Mother of all Disease in Toxic Accumulation

You  desire to be healthy, but what is stopping you?


Your behavior is the result of your attitude, in turn is the result of your belief or value system about life, in turn is determined by your mindset, in turn is caused by what you see or think or feel. 

Although there are many people who depend on CHEMICALS there are also many who DO NOT know about CHEMICALS  and are living very Healthy and also live even up to 90 to 100 years, gracefully. Visit Japan's Okinawa Island - The Healthiest Place on Earth Today.

I used to think that there were only a handful of people over the age of 100 in the world. How wrong was I! The Japanese island of Okinawa alone has about 457 of them. It is considered to be the healthiest place in the world, where the average life expectancy of an Okinawan woman is 86, and man’s is 78. Not only do they live long lives, they live very healthy and happy ones too. A fine example is 96-year-old martial artist Seikichi Uehara, who, at his age, defeated a thirty-something ex-boxing champion. And also Nabi Kinjo, the 105-year-old woman who hunted down a poisonous snake and killed it with a fly swatter.

The Okinawans’ secret, I’ve come to understand, lies in two things – their food, and their attitude towards life. As a happy bunch of people, the elders seem to have no worry etched on their faces, stress seems to be a foreign concept to them. An 88-year-old farmer who still works 11-hour days at the field, says, “I hardly ever get angry. I enjoy life because I’m happy at work and I think that’s the medicine for a long life.” I completely agree, and I wish I could look at life the way this brilliant guy does…

Most of the over-85-years-old elderly I’ve ever met seem to be waiting to die, sick of dealing with their physical pains and of struggling to survive on small pensions, but not the Okinawans. They have a child-like zeal towards life, wanting to live more. Even a 100-year-old woman says she would like to live a few more years to spend with her grandchildren. As the old Okinawan saying goes, “At 70 you are still a child, at 80 a young man or woman. And if at 90 someone from Heaven invites you over, tell him: ‘Just go away, and come back when I am 100.’” I think that perfectly illustrates their philosophy on life.

The Okinawan eating habits are certainly worth a mention as well. Their regular diet is not based on red meat, but largely on rice, fish and vegetables. One of their popular dishes, Mimiga, is made from pig ears – low in fat and high in calcium. They also eat plenty of tofu, and vegetables such as bitter gourd (Goiya) and sweet potato are a staple. The Okinawan sweet potato is especially nutritious – one medium sized baked potato is said to contain over 20,000 IU of beta carotene and Vitamin A. Sounds like an incredibly healthy diet but some of them do indulge in a cup full of a locally brewed rice wine called Awamori, each night.

Doing research on Okinawa’s high life expectancy has been very motivating for me; it’s great to know there are people in the world who have figured out the secret to a long and happy life. Unfortunately, the secrets accumulated by the elderly aren’t being imbibed with much enthusiasm by the present generation Okinawans. As in many other countries, Western fast food joints have invaded the island, which the youth prefer over traditional foods. One youngster chomping down on a burger says: “I like thick, greasy food.” “Goya is bitter,” says another, “so I don’t like it much.” The degradation of the healthy eating habits has taken its toll on the island, considerably reducing life expectancy. The rates of obesity and lung cancer are higher in Okinawa than compared to anywhere else in Japan. It appears that when the western world is awakening to the benefits of living life like the Okinawans, their very own youth are leaving it behind. It’s sad really, but the truth is the healthy people of Okinawa are nothing but living relics whose secrets of a truly healthy life will be lost in just a few years time…

Evidence-Based Gerontology
One of the most important things about the Okinawa Centenarian Study is the fact that it is based on solid evidence. The most important evidence needed for any centenarian study is reliable age-verification data. Throughout Japan (including Okinawa prefecture), every city, town, and village records birth, marriage and death data (among other data) in a koseki (family register). This system was instituted throughout Japan in the 1870's. The koseki is supplemented by a regular census undertaken every five years. Life tables calculated from this database show one of the world's longest life expectancies and prevalence data show the world's highest known concentration of centenarians for any country or state.
After examining over 900 Okinawan centenarians and numerous other elderly in their seventies, eighties, and nineties, some fascinating findings have emerged. One, genetic factors appear important to human longevity, including Okinawan longevity. Two, it has also become clear that the Okinawan lifestyle provides many reasons why older Okinawans are so remarkably healthy so far into their senior years. Discovering the reasons for the apparent genetic and environmental advantages could have an important impact on our health and well-being in the West. Below appear some of the key findings and what they mean in terms of healthy aging -- for the Okinawans, and the rest of us.

1. Genetics, Healthy Aging and Longevity
Identifying factors that help us remain healthy, vigorous and disability-free at older ages is one of our major research priorities. Since the completion of the Human Genome Project and the HapMap Project (a project to identify common variations in human genes), a promising novel strategy by some human longevity researchers is to try to identify genes (and variations of those genes) that impact human aging and longevity. If such genes and their genetic pathways can be identified then novel therapies might be created that affect the biology of these pathways. This may help prevent or treat age-associated diseases and perhaps even slow aging itself. Such therapies might include interventions as simple as diet and focused exercise, specific food compounds, neutraceuticals or pharmaceuticals.
How much of human longevity is due to genes? Estimates of the heritability of human lifespan vary from 10-50% with the most common finding being that about a third of human lifespan may be heritable. Phenotypes that suggest slower aging, such as survival to 90+ years, may have an even stronger genetic basis, which explains why centenarians and near-centenarians tend to cluster in families. But until the discovery of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene, there was little evidence for a single gene effect large enough to impact human longevity. This discovery has been replicated in many populations, suggests that associations with some genes are large.

Studies of long-lived humans, such as American centenarians, have helped identify other promising genetic loci for longevity and healthy aging. However, these studies are often limited in scope due to small sample sizes, genetic admixture, and inappropriate selection of controls. Some success has been achieved through use of genetically homogeneous populations with smaller gene pools.

Our research group was the first to identify so called "human longevity genes" using centenarians as a study model when we published a study showing that Okinawan centenarians have HLA (human leukocyte antigen) genetic polymorphisms that place them at lower risk for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases (see figure below: Takata et al., Lancet 1987).

We also studied the mortality patterns of centenarian siblings. Past family studies in other populations have shown that there are familial (genetic) components to longevity. That is, longevity tends to run in families. In support of this, we found that a mortality advantage exists for centenarian siblings versus their age-matched birth cohorts. This advantage appears sustained over the course of the siblings' lives. At each 5-year age interval until age 90 years, siblings of Okinawan centenarians maintained approximately a 50% lower mortality risk. This resulted in an average of 11.8 years extra lifespan compared to their age-matched birth cohort. The sustained mortality advantage over the life course provides further evidence that human longevity has an important genetic component since most environmental mortality advantages, such as education, diminish or disappear completely in older age groups (see figure below from Willcox BJ et al. Siblings of Okinawan centenarians exhibit lifelong mortality advantages. J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci. 2006;61:345-54).

In order to quantify the genetic contribution to Okinawan longevity, we studied the sibling recurrence risk ratio or "lambda of sib (ls)" in siblings of Okinawan centenarians. This is a calculation that has been shown to give a rough idea of how important genes might be to a given phenotype, such as a disease, or even to something more complex like human longevity.

We analyzed a population-based sample of 348 Okinawan centenarians (born between 1874 and 1902) and 969 of their siblings (507 females and 462 males) to explore the feasibility of a genome-wide study of Okinawan longevity. The ls for Okinawan centenarians was 6.5 (95% confidence interval: 3.9-10.7) for females and 5.1 (95% confidence interval: 1.8-14.2) for males, respectively. The weighted sex-combined ls was 6.3. These estimates in Okinawans appear to be higher than those obtained in past work on U.S. Caucasians. For example, a study of the familial component of longevity in Utah families estimated the ls to be 2.3. This suggests an important genetic component to Okinawan longevity and supports further work on the genetics of healthy aging and longevity in this population (see Willcox BJ et al., Substantial advantage for longevity in siblings of Okinawan centenarians. Genetic Epidemiology). 2005;29:286.

Does this mean that Okinawan longevity is all genetic? Not at all. We believe the Okinawans have both genetic and non-genetic longevity advantages -- the best combination. In fact, we have written extensively that the Okinawan traditional way of life -- the dietary habits, the physical activity, the psychological and social aspects, all play an important role in Okinawan longevity.
While most studies of humans have suggested that about a third of human longevity is due to genetics, this depends on the age, sex, ethnicity and environment of the study population. For example, studies of "model organisms" of aging, such as rodents, who share many of the same genes as humans, have shown that single genes can influence lifespan by 50% or more. On the other hand, studies of lifestyle interventions, such as eating fewer calories (a.k.a. "caloric restriction") have shown that this dietary intervention can also yield increases in lifespan of a similar magnitude (see Willcox DC et al., Caloric restriction and human longevity: what can we learn from the Okinawans? Biogerontology. 2006;7:173-77). The key is to study both genetic and non-genetic (environmental) factors and ultimately "gene-environment" interactions that lead to healthy longevity.

2. Caloric Restriction, Metabolic Damage and Aging

One of the most durable theories of aging is the free radical theory. This theory postulates that damage from free radicals (unstable molecules), generated mainly from metabolizing food into energy, ultimately damages vital body molecules (tissue, DNA, etc.). This damage accumulates with time until, like an old car, we fall apart. In support of this theory, one of the most important findings in free-radical research has been that eating fewer calories increases life span (Sohal RS, et al. Science 1996;273:59-63; Heilbronn LK, et al. Am J Clin Nutr 2003;78:361-9). The initial evidence that this may work in humans has been indirect and based on observation of the low caloric intake of the Okinawans and their long life expectancy (Willcox DC, et al. Biogerontology 2006). More direct evidence suggests that Okinawans following the traditional ways have low blood levels of free radicals. The elders had significantly lower levels of lipid peroxide-compelling evidence that they suffer less free-radical-induced damage. This may indicate healthier lifestyles but may also be due to gene variants that result in lower blood levels of free radicals. This is currently under investigation.

3. Cardiovascular Health and Aging
Elderly Okinawans were found to have impressively young, clean arteries, low cholesterol, and low homocysteine levels when compared to Westerners. These factors help reduce their risk for coronary heart disease by up to 80% and keep stroke levels low.
Their healthy arteries appear to be in large part due to their lifestyle: diet, regular exercise, moderate alcohol use, avoidance of smoking, blood pressure control, and a stress-minimizing psychospiritual outlook. However, there are also potential genetic aspects such as lower fibrinogen levels possibly due to differences in fibrinogen-related genes. A recent autopsy study that we conducted on a centenarian demonstrated that her coronary arteries were virtually free of atherosclerotic plague (Bernstein, Willcox et al. JGMS 2004).

Plasma homocysteine levels The chart to the right indicates that the higher the plasma homocysteine (a new risk factor) level is, the more people suffer from cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine is an amino acid that causes damage to arterial walls. It is higher in people who don't get enough folate (e.g. green leafy vegetables) and vitamins B6, B12 but low in Okinawans.

4. Cancer and Aging

Okinawans are at extremely low risk for hormone-dependent cancers including cancers of the breast, prostate, ovaries, and colon. Compared to North Americans, they have 80% less breast cancer and prostate cancer, and less than half the ovarian and colon cancers. Some of the most important factors that may protect against those cancers include low caloric intake, high vegetables/fruits consumption, higher intake of good fats (omega-3, mono-unsaturated fat), high fiber diet, high flavonoid intake, low body fat level, and high level of physical activity.

5. Osteoporosis and Aging
NK, a typical healthy centenarian was reported to be in particularly good health, completely independent, and still farming. He is shown here getting his bone density tested by heel bone ultrasound.
Okinawans have about 20% fewer hip fractures than do mainland Japanese, and Japanese have about 40% fewer hip fractures than Americans (Ross PD, et al. Am J Epidemiol 1991;133:801-9). Our research on Okinawan elders showed that their bone density, when adjusted for body size, is similar to Americans, and like the rest of us they continue to lose bone mass as they get older, but possibly at a slower rate. We compared bone mineral density in a group of Okinawans to two groups from mainland Japan and found that by age forty for women and age fifty for men the groups began to diverge. The Japanese began to lose significantly more calcium from their bones than the Okinawans, suggesting the Okinawans preserve their bone density at healthy levels for longer periods of time than other Japanese (Suzuki M, et al. Japanese J Bone Res 1995;63:166-72). Protective lifestyle factors that may play a role here include high calcium intake by Okinawans in both food and their natural drinking water, high vitamin D levels from exposure to sunlight, increased physical activity, especially at older ages, and high intake of dietary flavonoids (estrogenic compounds from plant foods).

6. Healthy Cognitive Aging and Dementia.
Prevalence of dimensia is significantly lower in Okinawa than USAPrevalence surveys suggest that the dementia rate is fairly low among the Okinawan elderly, compared to other elderly populations. Even into their late 90s Okinawans suffered lower dementia rates than reported for comparable populations in the United States and elsewhere.

7. The Role of Physical Activity in Healthy Aging.

Okinawan centenarians have been lean throughout their extraordinarily long lives, with an average body mass index (BMI) that ranged from 18 to 22 (lean is less than 23). The Okinawans have traditionally kept eating a low-calorie, low glycemic load diet, practicing calorie control in a cultural habit known as hara hachi bu (only eating until they are 80% full), and keeping physically active the natural way. Particular exercise interventions are under study for their role in healthy aging.

8. Women's Health and Aging
Women's health and aging is one of our research interests. For example, women in Okinawa tend to experience menopause naturally and non-pharmacologically with fewer complications such as hot flashes, hip fractures, or coronary heart disease. Lifestyle determinants include diet, avoidance of smoking and exercise in the form of dance, soft martial arts, walking and gardening. Okinawan women also have a very high intake of natural estrogens through their diet, mainly from the large quantities of soy they consume. Soy contains phytoestrogens, or plant estrogens called flavonoids. The other important major phytoestrogens are lignans, which are derived from flax and other grains. All plants, especially legumes (beans, peas), onions, and broccoli, contain these natural estrogens, but not nearly in the same quantity as soy and flax. Recent double-blind placebo controlled studies support the ability of soy isoflavones to slow the bone loss (Alekel D, et al. Am J Clin Nutr 2001;72:844-52) and hot flashes (Albertazzi P, et al. Obstet Gynecol 1998;91:6-11) that occur with menopause.

9. The Endocrine System, Hormones and Aging

Okinawan elders may have higher levels of sex hormones, including natural DHEA, estrogen, and testosterone than similarly aged Americans, suggesting that the Okinawans are physiologically younger. DHEA is a steroid produced in the human adrenal gland, and some studies suggest that it may help ameliorate the ravages of aging. However, taking DHEA supplements could increase risk for breast and other cancers so we do not recommend taking DHEA supplements. More supported by the scientific literature is that DHEA levels decline in direct ratio with age, so it may be a good marker of biological age. Okinawans appear to have higher DHEA levels than similarly aged Americans suggesting that Okinawans may age slower than Americans. As Okinawans age, both sexes maintain remarkably higher levels of estrogen which may help protect against heart disease and osteoporosis. Testosterone is the male equivalent of estrogen. Higher endogenous levels increase our muscle mass and our body hair, deepen our voices, and control our libidos, among other functions. This hormone also appears higher in older Okinawan men. Cross-national population studies are needed to confirm these differences and their biological significance. (Source: )

Okinawa in Japan is one of the healthiest places on earth to grow old.

In Japan, there are 42,000 centenarians in 2010 (90% of which are female). It is projected that in 2030, there will be 239,000 centenarians in Japan (85% of them will be female). (Data: World Population Prospects, The 2012 Revision) 

Within Japan, the islands of Okinawa are known to have a high concentration of centenarians and known for good health among older persons.

2ND TRUTH You HEAL Yourself

The most AMAZING FACTS about The Human BRAIN


Our brains are comprised of 60% fat (making it the fattest organ in our body) and weighs about 3 pounds.

Speaking of neurons, the brain has over 100 billion neurons that can send information/move at a speed up to 270 miles per hour, all dedicated to sending information throughout our body. Quicker than the Hennessey Venom GT, the world's fastest street car. Any movement that you make with your body, the words you speak, and what you’re thinking, was all information sent through your neurons. This means that your brain is working as we speak.

PAIN: THE HUMAN BRAIN ITSELF DOESN'T HAVE PAIN RECEPTORS AND THEREFORE CANNOT FEEL ANY PAIN. Since our brain is like a “central control” for our bodies, it doesn’t have any pain receptors. This means that the brain can’t feel pain. You may have seen news reports of neurosurgeons who have performed brain surgery while their patient is still alive. Making it possible for doctors to perform brain surgery on patients who are awake. It is a common practice, especially if the doctor is trying to fix a motor skill or basic function of the body and they need their patient awake through the process to test and check for success.

THOUGHTS: THE AVERAGE PERSON IS BELIEVED TO HAVE AROUND 70 THOUSAND THOUGHTS A DAY. You’ve probably daydreamed or have gotten lost in your thoughts a few times in your life. It has been shown that the brain has over 70,000 thoughts per day. MEANWHILE EXCESSIVE THINKING HAS BEEN LINKED TO STRESS, DEPRESSION, AND PARANOID. Some people can experience lack of sleep, depression, paranoia, and other types of stress. This is why the practice of meditation has become such a popular trend, as it can help calm the mind down and change.

DMT: THE PINEAL GLAND IS ALSO THOUGHT TO PRODUCE A CHEMICAL KNOWN AS DMT N, N-dimethyltryptamine NICKNAMED "THE SPIRIT MOLECULE" OR "THE SEAT OF THE SOUL." DMT IS BELIEVED TO BE RELEASED DURING DREAMING, DURING SPIRITUAL AND MYSTICAL EXPERIENCES AND DURING BIRTH AND DEATH. KNOWN AS THE MOST POWERFUL HALLUCINOGENIC DRUG THAT CAN DRAMATICALLY AFFECT HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS.  The brain naturally produces something called DMT,{CLICK TO WATCH VIDEOS} or “the spirit molecule” which causes the body to experience hallucinations and spiritual awakenings. DMT is usually released at birth, while sleeping (for our dreams), and death.
These are yet just a few of the amazing things that our brains can do. Which is essential that taking care of your brain is crucial for good mental health and physical health. 


Natural View of BODY 
1. New Cells every day.
2. Tooth after 12 to 18th months.
3. Semen after 10 years to 15 years.
4. Embryo after 9 years to 15 years.


But why so many people are sick?

Fear created by people around us without proper findings.  Example, when a doctor gives a prognosis that if you don't do surgery you have no chance to survive, if you don't take the drugs you cannot heal the body, and such like, inducing FEAR into the subconscious mind. 

No pain tolerance since young and many people are too pampered.

Easy way out ( means don't trust your body to heal itself)

Chemicals which are unwanted intake via food stuffs, water, and air.

Breathing Techniques

Pursed-Lips Breathing

Before starting these techniques, ask your Health Care Provider if they are right for you.

Having COPD makes it harder to breathe. And when it’s hard to breathe, it’s normal to get anxious, making you feel even more short of breath. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis.


There are two breathing techniques that can help you get the air you need without working so hard to breathe: Pursed-lips Breathing and Diaphragmatic (also called Belly or Abdominal) Breathing.

Better Breathing Tip: It’s normal to hold your shoulders tense and high. Before starting any breathing technique, take a minute to drop your shoulders down, close your eyes, and relax.

Pursed-Lips Breathing

  • Slows your breathing down
  • Keeps airways open longer so your lungs can get rid of more stale, trapped air
  • Reduces the work of breathing
  • Increases the amount of time you can exercise or perform an activity
  • Improves the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide
To do purse-lips breathing:
  1. Breathe in through your nose (as if you are smelling something) for about 2 seconds.
  2. Pucker your lips like you’re getting ready to blow out candles on a birthday cake.
  3. Breathe out very slowly through pursed-lips, two to three times as long as you breathed in.
  4. Repeat.
Pursed-Lips Breathing

Diaphragmatic (Abdominal/Belly) Breathing

The diaphragm is the main muscle of breathing. It’s supposed to do most of the work. When you have COPD, the diaphragm doesn’t work as well and muscles in the neck, shoulders and back are used. These muscles don’t do much to move your air. Training your diaphragm to take over more “work of breathing” can help.
Diaphragmatic breathing is not as easy to do as pursed-lips breathing. It is recommended that you get instruction from a respiratory health care professional or physical therapist experienced in teaching it.
This technique is best used when you’re feeling rested and relaxed, and while sitting back or lying down.
  1. Relax your shoulders.
  2. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your belly.
  3. Inhale through your nose for about two seconds.
  4. As you breathe in, your belly should move outward. Your belly should move more than your chest.
  5. As you breathe out slowly through pursed-lips, gently press on your belly. This will push up on your diaphragm to help get your air out.
  6. Repeat.

Better Breathing Tip: Stop, Reset, Continue

When you are feeling short of breath during exercise or regular activities, use these 3 steps:
  1. Stop your activity.
  2. Reset by sitting down, relax your shoulders, and do pursed-lips breathing until you catch your breath.
  3. Continue activity, doing pursed-lips breathing as you go. Go at a slower pace if you need to.

Staying Healthy and Avoiding Pneumonia

What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection of one or both lungs. Organisms settle in the air sacs where they grow rapidly. These air sacs become filled with pus and fluid as the body attempts to fight infection. Young children, cigarette smokers, adults over 65 and people with certain medical problems including COPD are at greater risk for developing pneumonia. COPD is the third leading cause of death, while pneumonia and flu contribute to the eighth leading cause of death in the United States.

What causes pneumonia?

Pneumonia is most commonly caused by bacteria, viruses and less commonly fungi which are more common in patients with suppressed immune systems. Contact with the organisms occurs either through directly touching objects with your hands (which then transmit the organism to your mouth, nose or eyes), or through inhalation of droplets containing the organisms. The causes of pneumonia for which vaccines (shots) are available include:
  • Influenza (Flu)
  • Pneumococcus
  • Measles
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)

Symptoms of pneumonia:

There are several symptoms of pneumonia that are similar to those of a COPD flare-up, which are often caused by infection. It is important to recognize these pneumonia symptoms and to call your doctor if you experience one or more of the following:
  • Fever over 100.5 degrees or shaking chills
  • Shortness of breath or more rapid breathing
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Cough with increased amount of mucus
  • Cough with a change in mucus color
  • More rapid heart rate
  • Pain in one area of the chest with deep breaths

How can I avoid pneumonia?

  • See your health care professional at your regularly scheduled appointment even if you feel fine
  • Get your flu shot every year. Local pharmacies and grocery stores offer these shots at the start of flu season
  • Check if you are due for a pneumonia shot which can greatly reduce your risk of developing pneumonia
  • Wash your hands often and carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer for when you cannot wash your hands
  • Avoid touching your mouth, eyes, and nose in public to help prevent germs from entering your body
  • Stay away from crowds, especially during cold and flu season
  • Use your own pen, especially when signing in at your doctor’s office or other health care appointments
  • Don’t smoke as it makes it harder for the lungs to fight off an infection
  • Get plenty of sleep. When your body is tired, you're more likely to get sick
It is possible to stay healthy, even if you have COPD, at any stage. Watch for early warning signs of COPD flare-ups which may include pneumonia and report them right away. Work with your health care team to avoid pneumonia!

tone up your torso

Torso toner: leg curl

No need to pump iron in a gym to firm up your torso. Try these simple exercises at home instead.

Start with simple leg curls.

1.Leg curls

The lower abdominals are one of the toughest areas to target, but vital to a toned torso. "This exercise pushes the lower abdominals really hard, an area that's often weak and overlooked," says the personal trainer Matt Roberts.

Lie on your back, with your arms behind your head and your legs in the air at a right angle to your body. Make sure you draw your belly button in, so that your lower back touches the floor.

Lower your right leg to the floor, but don't let your heel touch the ground. Raise it back up and repeat with the left leg. Keep your abs tight throughout. Aim for 10-20 repetitions on each leg.

Torso toner: leg curl

2.Waist honer

Torso toners: waist honer

A fit, firm torso isn't all about a six-pack. "The oblique muscles down your side are an important area to focus on if you want to hone your waist and banish love handles," says the personal trainer Charlotte Ord. "This is a very simple move that specifically targets your obliques."
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a small bottle of water or can in each hand (optional). With your arms by your sides, slowly slide one arm down towards your knee – make sure that your body goes directly sideways, and isn't rotating forwards or backwards.

3.Knee tucks

Torso toners: knee tucks

Another brilliant exercise for toning and strengthening the lower abs, and Matt says: "The press-up position will also do wonders for your core-stability."

Lie face down on the floor, with your palms of your hands underneath your shoulders and legs extended out behind you, with the balls of your feet on the floor. Raise yourself up with your arms, maintaining a stable, straight torso. Get someone to check that you're not sticking your bottom up in the air.

Holding this position, slowly lift one foot off the floor and bring your knee in towards your upper body. Stop raising the leg at the point you feel your lower back bending, and slowly return to starting position. Repeat on the other side. Aim for 15-25 on each leg.


Torso toners: v-crunches

This takes the traditional stomach crunch up a notch. "It makes you contract your abs throughout, while forcing you to bring in the obliques [the abdominal muscles that run down your side] to control the movement," says Matt. "Focus on getting the position absolutely right and using your stomach muscles rather than letting your back to bow."

Lie on your back, with your hands by your ears and legs extended out. Raise your upper and lower body at the same time to meet in the middle to form a V. Control your upper and lower body to lower back down slowly. The move is much more effective if performed slowly and precisely. Aim for 10-20 repetitions.

5.Core toner

Torso toners: core toner

Charlotte says "adding a hip extension to the standard plank position brings in your gluteal muscles [buttock muscles], which contribute to a strong core."

Lie on your front, with hands under your shoulders. Lift up so that you're resting on your forearms. Ensure your body is in a straight line and your bottom is not sticking up. Slowly raise one leg, keeping your core tight to make sure your body doesn't rotate. Lower the leg and repeat on other side. Aim for 10-15 raises on each side.

Slowly come back up to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Aim for 15-20 repetitions on each side. To make it slightly harder, bend your elbows and put your hands up by your temples.

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is one of those things that you do not consciously know that you are missing. It can take you as far as you want to go, in so many ways. It can show you how to take the pain out of a skinned knee or a burn. Pranic Healing can teach you to accelerate the healing of a broken bone, or help you to find peace, forgiveness and give you the tools that you need to live a fruitful, loving and productive life. Its Founder has thought of a remedy for whatever ails you, on whatever level.

Learning Pranic Healing is like learning to read, or add, at first it seems foreign, then it is second nature, and you wonder how you could ever get along without it; After some time, one begins to realize what a precious gift Pranic Healing is. Like a fine wine, or a friendship it unfolds, revealing ever more subtle expressions of its unique genius.

So what is Pranic Healing

It is a Simple yet extremely powerful recipe driven, no touch system of healing. The foundational techniques can be learned by anyone able to follow simple instructions, in just one weekend course.
The Founder of Modern Pranic Healing is Chinese Energy Master, Master Choa Kok Sui is known for his exceptional ability to distill complex topics down to their essence, making them easy to understand and practical to apply.

Pranic Healing is complimentary in nature. It is not meant to replace Allopathic Medicine, or any other healing method. It is easily adapted into a practice, or may be used alone. Pranic Healing uses the forces present in nature, along with the body's innate abilities, as the foundation on which Pranic Healing is built.

The two principles in Pranic Healing

The body has the innate ability to heal its self.
In order to do so life force, or life energy must be present.
I will elaborate a little on these principles. The body does the healing always, period. We may encourage the body's immune system with drugs, sew it together or put a limb in a cast, but it is the body that does the healing.

The body has intelligence of its own. If it did not we would spend all our time telling it what to do. No time to do anything else. The body has the ability to control and energize its own system if it is condition to do so. In order for the body to heal it requires life force or life energy. Simple, no life force or life energy, no healing can occur, the body is dead.
There are several sources of this life force or "Prana". These include the environment i.e. the sun, the air, the earth. We get some prana from the food that we eat, from animals, and from other people, and spiritual sources.
I feel fairly confident when I say that all of us, at one time or other has been a source of life force or energy for other people. Remember that time that you were feeling great? A friend called, or came by, who was depressed or needed your help. They left feeling better, however, you were exhausted. You were happy that you could help, and relieved that they were gone. You felt drained, the question is why?
The answer is that energy and water operate in a similar fashion. They will both seek their own level. If there is a passage between two containers, fill one, and both will become half full. Unless the passage is plugged or filled, the liquid will seek its own level, always flowing from high to low. When you were in that GREAT mood and your friend was in that bad place, guess who was in the high position? YOU!!! That's right.

The question you should be asking is how can I still help without becoming drained myself? Another good question is where is this energy stored and how do I get more? The First healing technique learned in Pranic Healing is how to stem the flow, how to remove attachments and energetic links to negative people and situations.

Energetic Anatomy

We know right now through our exposure to technology, that there are many frequencies, around us that most of us cannot see. We have created many instruments to both sense and utilize these various frequencies. Everything from microwaves to x-rays, television and radio signals, all these are invisible to the untrained, naked eye. Yet we use them and interact with them and accept them without any hesitation.

This is a great time in history for us to speak about Energy and Pranic Healing because we are all so familiar with energy terms and concepts.

We understand that everything is Energy, regardless of how dense that energy is. E=Mc squared.
 In Electrical Engineering there is something called the right hand rule. Simply put, it states that if you have a copper wire and run electrical current through that wire, it will form an electromagnetic field around that wire, and it will rotate in a right hand direction.
We have created instruments that can detect the resistance and impurities in wire by measuring the regularity in the electromagnetic field outside the wire.
We also know that the physical body has bio-plasmic impulses flowing through it. The body acts as the copper wire for the bio-plasmic impulses to flow through. This current flowing through the body forms a bio-electro-magnetic field around the body. This is commonly known as the Bio-plasmic field, or the Etheric Field or the Auric Field.
This Auric field is the container that holds Prana or life force. It is made up of several layers.

The outermost of these layers is termed the Outer Aura. Again, it's function it to contain or hold in the energy that the body acquires from those various sources. If there is a hole, crack or tear in this field, the prana, or life force will steadily leak out.
If you have ever met someone who is frail, always getting sick, or when they recover they often have relapses, this condition may be caused by a leak in this Outer Aura.

Another symptom of a leak may occur when a person receives a treatment of some kind. The person feels good for a couple of days, and then recidivates to the previous condition.
The next layer of the Aura is called the Health rays. These health rays are like the energetic pores. They push used up energy outside of our system. They are actually our first layer of defense. When you feel someone "bristle" you are feeling the Health Rays stand up on end, kind of like a porcupine, or the hair standing up when a cat has been spooked.
If the health rays become damaged, tangled or droopy this will be reflected in the physical body as weakness, illness or injury.

The innermost layer is called the Inner Aura. This is the layer that is generally measured to gauge irregularities in Bio-Energetic Anatomy.
Just as we have physical power plants, transformers and wires, we have energetic power plants, transformers and wires as well.

The energetic power plants are called Chakras. They gather energy and change it into something digestible to the subtle and physical bodies.
The Chakras, (chakra means wheel in Sanskrit), spin two directions, they inhale fresh clean Prana, and expel used up or diseased energy. They also supply Prana, (life force), to our internal organs using our version of wiring, the Meridian System.

The Meridians are those lines on an Acupuncture Chart.
The energy generated at the physical power plant is too great to use directly, it must be made "compatible" with our appliances. This is done through a series of transformers. Something similar also happens within chakra system.

Many people are somewhat familiar with the seven Chakra system. There are many, many Chakras in our system. There are major chakras, such as those that are located down the front of the body, there are minor chakras such as those on the hands feet and spleen.

There are mini chakras like the ones on the tips of the fingers, and micro chakras such as those dots on the acupuncture charts.
The Major Chakras supply etheric energy, Prana or life force to the various systems and organs within our bodies. (See Miracles Through Pranic Healing for a complete description)
 So,  just to quickly recap, our energetic anatomy is made up of our chakras, (power plants), the meridians (the wiring) and the Auric Field (the emanation of the current running through the system).
The Auric Field is the energetic blueprint that the physical body follows.

The body is the last thing that appears in the physical world, not the first. Just as the blueprint for the oak tree is already contained in the acorn, so the blueprint for the body is present before the body is created.
Everything that happens in the manifest world happens in the energy world first. Allow me to explain.

Let us say that you want to build a house. The first thing that one does is to think of building the house. That is in the mental realm or mental world. Then one has an emotional reaction, excitement, or interest or happiness. This is the Emotional realm. Then the idea gets put down on paper, it starts to come into the physical world, goes to the Architect, and then to the carpenters, who, when provided with enough building materials will make it a reality, bringing the idea into physical manifestation.

Now say the blueprint becomes damaged or unreadable in some way. If the carpenters do not get the blueprint redrawn, they may put a window where a door is suppose to go. Or they may use the wrong grade of materials.
If the project runs out of funding it may take a long time to complete.
 So when the body is ill or injured, all of its resources are directed to that problem. All of its carpenters are focused on that project, if the blueprint is unreadable or not enough material is furnished, the body may not heal properly, or rapidly.

Pranic Healing Techniques

Cleansing and Energizing are two techniques used in Pranic Healing.

 Before any energy is given, negative, dirty, diseased, or contaminated energy is first removed and disposed of properly. This is called cleansing. 
Did I say PROPERLY?..  So many times I have walked through a health fair, or a psychic fair, where massage therapists or "energetic practitioners" have been doing healings and I have watched them shake their hands out away from their bodies and into the space around them. Have you seen that?, 
What are they doing?

If you ask, they will tell you (sometimes) that they are shaking off the dirty or diseased or "bad energy". That is ok, but where is it going?. When asked this question, you will be met with anything from a puzzled look to a reply, "it is going into the earth,"  or into a flame, or a vague statement that the Universe will take care of it.

So, if someone throws garbage into the street, will the Universe take care of it? The answer is of course, YES! The question is, however, how long will it take? Will we have to see it? Smell it? Perhaps step in it? Drag it into our houses on the bottom of our shoes?

If I have mud on my hands and shake my hands do my hands become clean? No! Just slightly less covered in mud. 
If something is true on one level it is true on another level.
 If it is true in the physical world it is true in the energetic world as well. Have you heard "AS ABOVE, SO BELOW " ?
 Remember that it was said that the chakras spin in both directions, they inhale and they exhale.

What do you think happens to the dirty energy remaining on the hands of a person, even those who are handling energetically unclean things, let alone persons with disease? Could some of the dirty energy be inhaled through the chakras in the hands?
 Here is a list of pitfalls that may befall the therapist who uses these approaches, as well as dangers to their clients

. The Practitioner may become quite contaminated. Symptoms of contamination include: 
Arthritic conditions, 
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
, Heaviness in the legs,
, Fatigue


The next Client may pick up the dirty energy from the past clients on their way out.
But in Pranic Healing , we are taught how to clean ourselves, our environment and how to dispose of the negative, dirty, diseased or contaminated energy, simply, effectively and with minimal effort.

We learn how to help others while avoiding burnout and other hazards.

 Remember the idea that water and energy operate in much the same manner? Yes? You remember also that the body will regulate its own energetic system if allowed to do so? Good. If the energy system is clean and the chakras are also cleaned, then they will pull in fresh clean prana on their own. So, as a Healer, I may not need to energize at all.

This has been demonstrated on many occasions when I have simply cleaned the spine, head and back chakras of a person with a migraine headache and the headache has disappeared, with no energizing. This is because there is already too much energy in the head causing the head to pound. If the blockages and excess energy is removed, the headache is relieved in just a few minutes.
 However, a healing process may be greatly sped up if the body has unlimited or at least extra resources at its disposal.
 I have seen this happen on many occasions from broken bones to burns.

The time that it would take to heal is extremely reduced, sometimes from a few months to a few weeks.

There is lots of good news, for everyone. I believe, no, I know that absolutely everyone can benefit from Pranic Healing in one way or another. Whether it is from learning how to help without being drained, or to keep your body healthy, or to help your family, and even your pets, Pranic Healing has something to offer.

Varma Kalai

Varma Kalai

(Tamil: வ􁾽􁾽􁾽􁾽ம􁾰􁾰􁾰􁾰கைல) is a martial art and esoteric healing art originating from ancient Tamil Naidu in South India. The name literally translate as "The Art of Vital Points". It is an element of the Tamil martial art Kuttu varisai.

Special Varamakalai.

1. Narambadi

2. Varma adi

3. Varma Koothiram

4. Kurunthadi Varmam

Legend has it that Lord Siva taught this art form to his
son Lord Murugan and Lord Murugan taught this art to
the sage Agastya, foremost of the Siddhar's, during the
times of Sangam Literature.
He transferred the knowledge of this art to other

Siddhar's and he also wrote treatises on this art in Tamil.
The presence of shrines to Agathiar in Courtallam
suggests that he researched the art there.

Though Varma Kalai has its own form of katas and procedures, it was closely assorted with Silambam's component Kuttu varisai and Kalaripayattu. Knowledge of Varma Kalai was considered vital in both arts to become a Grand Master. The teachers were called as Aasan (Tamil: ஆசா􁾹) and the grand masters were called as Periyaasan (Tamil: ெபாியாச􁾹) or Iyan (Tamil: ஐய􁾹).

Historically, Varma Kalai has been one of the arts taught
to those of royal blood. However, even royalty were
required to pass the stringent requirements for disciple-
ship. The schools received nivandhanams (donation with
high respect) from the Kings of Tamil Kingdom (Chera,
Chola, Pandya and Pallava. Aasan and Periyaasan of
Varma Kalai were highly respected.
The art was taught only to selected individuals, but due
to the strict requirements for new students it never
gained large numbers of adherents. Due to its secretive
nature, Varma Kalai
remained largely unknown even in India until the release of the movie Indian, in which Kamal Haasan played the role of a Varma Kalai expert. The film's popularity
generated a resurgence of interest in the art.

Currently Varma Kalai is practised in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, usually as part of Kuttuvarisai and Kalari training.
Requirements for Training
Varma Kalai teachers are highly selective in their choice
of students. Disciples must meet a number of criteria;
beyond martial arts competence they are required to have
an understanding of biology, mathematics, political
science, astronomy, physics, chemistry, Saamuthriga Lakshanam,Yoga, military tactics, horsemanship,
elephant riding, charioteering and Hindu philosophy
(Saiva,Vaisnava, Saktha, Koumara, Boutha, Samana)
etc. The Varma Kalai martial artist is not allowed to
teach the art to others until he receives Deeksha from
his Aasan or Periyaasan as in recognition of him as an Aasan.

Hearsays are that the rules were followed sincerely
without exception, everyone who wished to learn the art
were not qualified to learn. It was taught only to selected individuals who qualified but again all who learned does
not qualify to become an Aasan. Also the Aasans and
Periyaasans did not pass on few techniques as they
never met qualified disciple. It is being said that causes
such led to the loss of many great techniques, few
Aasans who spoke to media deny that thought. There is
also a belief that the art was kept hidden for centuries
for various reasons, it seems that Aasans agree to that
but there is no sound record on what facts set the art

Varma Kalai is classified into 4 types:
Thodu Varmam
96 Vital Points triggered by a touch. Not deadly, but will
affect the victim by disabling the body, organ
movements and function.
Padu Varmam
12 Vital Points that are fatal, causing immediate, severe effects upon the victim.
Thattu Varmam
Decisive Vital points that are used by the master. These
are kept confidential until the master pass on the
knowledge to the selected disciple

Nooku Varmam (also known as) Meitheenda Kalai

Triggering vital points by focusing/ concentrating on the
target. It takes several years of practice for one to
become an expert in Nooku Varmam.

In human body there are 108 Varmam's (Vital points) they are:

According to Vaidhiya murai (Healing therapy
under Siddha medicine) the vital points are
explained as:

Pressure points in Varma Kalai
Image result for Pressure points in Varma Kalai

According to Varma Kalai aasans our body has 350
therapeutic Varma points and 108 lethal varma points
which can be attacked. These points are also called
Marma. Application of pressure or insertion of needles
on the Marma points which are on the body surface
will affect the flow of vital energy or Pranam along our
Nadis. An attack on these points can render the receiver
immobile after the attack. Results can vary from person
to person. It can also depend on the force and velocity
used to strike.  Chakras are believed to be part of the
subtle body, not the physical body, and as such, are the
meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy
channels called Nadi. Nadi are believed to be channels
in the subtle body through which the life force (prana)
(non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves.  

Categories of Marma Points
• Maasa Marma

• Asthi Marma

• Snayu Marma

• Dhamani Marma

• Sandhi Marma

• Shira Marma
Maasa Marma deals with the pressure points on the skin , Asthi Marma at the bones , Snayu Marma at the nerves, Dhamani Marma at the arteries, Sandhi Marma at the joints, Shira Marma at the veins.
Number of Marma Points in different parts of our body

• From Top of the Head till Neck which forms the first unit one has 25 Marma or pressure points.

• From Neck till Naval Point which forms the second unit one has 45 Marma or pressure points.

• From Naval Point till Anus which forms the third unit one has 9 Marma or pressure points.

• Both Hands Anus which forms the fourth unit one has 14 Marma or pressure points.

• Both Legs forming the fifth unit has 15 Marma or pressure points.

If we total up all these pressure points(25+45+9+14+15) we will get 108 points.



Varma adi or Marma adi ("hitting vital spots") is a part
of the art of healing and harming Varma Kalai Tamil: வ􁾽ம􁾰கைல, Malayalam: മക്കല) MarmaVidhya, It is
a component of adi murai "law of hitting" which is a
martial art that teaches methods to attack pressure points
of the human body. This system of marmam is part of
Siddha Vaidhyam, attributed to the Tamil sage Agastya
and his disciples.

It is practiced in almost all parts of Tamil Nadu and in the Travancore region of Kerala. It is supposedly derived from traditional Siddha medicine.

Pressure Points  
Varma adi recognizes 108 marmas, 12 Padu marmas (death marmas) and 96 Thodu marmas (touch marmas). There are also counter marmas to heal trauma to the marmas.

Varma Kalai (the art of varmam) is considered to be very sacred. It is believed that Lord Siva taught this art form. It is one of the oldest form of South Indian martial art and healing system.

The aim of Varma Kalai is to produce healthy
individuals. The main purpose of this rare ancient art of
varmam is to save the precious human lives. Varma
Kalai is very popular in southern part of the county,
more particularly in Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu.

The term varmam appears in the Rigveda where Indra hits Vritra in a varmam with his vajra.
This system of varmam is part of Sidha Vaidhyam, whose origin is attributed to mythical sage Agastya and his disciples. 

According to the above verses, Lord Siva taught varmam to his wife Parvathi; later Parvathi taught varmam to their son Lord Murugan. Lord Murugan then taught Siddha Agasthiyar.

Agasthiyar later gave a written form that reached the masses. But the original texts, directly written by siddhas, are not available now. Saints who have grasped the meaning of the siddhas sayings have given a poetic form, which is used in modern day learning. So far, around 50,000 songs are available.

Varmam has grown under three independent schools of thoughts, mainly governed by three ancient siddha’s namely Akasthiyar, Bohar and Rama Devar, The narrated history has been mentioned in the 41st prose of ” Kai Mathirai Thiravukol ” as follows:
One of the current available texts ‘Sarasuthram’ gives the criteria for teaching varmam to eligible students.
It says that a varmam teacher should teach varmam only to a ‘sivayogi’. Sivayogi means devotee of Siva. Knowledge of Varma Kalai is passed through generation after generation.
People who have mastered the art are called asaans (masters). Varma asaans are also known as varmaanis. In order to learn this Art, it is necessary to work with an Asaan for a minimum period
of 12 years.
