Plants are an integral part of nature. Nature reflects the creative powers of a living God. They are designed with a specific purpose. The physical beauty and its chemistry are of immense importance to mankind. They are the life-sustaining forces on earth. There is a wonderful science in nature, in trees, herbs, shrubs, roots and flowers which man has never fathomed. If true remedies are found in nature then poisonous drugs and chemicals would be eliminated, and sickness would be rare.


A retrospection of the healing power of plants and a return to natural remedies are absolute need of the hour. Herbal medicine is based upon the premise that plants contain natural substances that can promote health and alleviate illness.


The W.H.O has estimated that perhaps 70% of earth’s populations rely upon traditional medicine for their primary health care needs and a major part of this therapy involves use of plant extracts or their active principle. Scientists in many parts of the world have carried extensive research and have proved to humanity the effective use of herbal medicine. Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani, the traditional medical practices of India have been recognized to have convincing and credible healing powers.


To promote, propagate and revive the ancient Indian system of Siddha Medicine, we at Agasthya’s are striving hard to make the ancient knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors, available globally to those who are interested, through our expert correspondence course.
