Abstract

In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, Traditional Siddha Medicine has gained wide popularity in Tamilnadu. A 39 year old female Covid positive patient is presented here under who was introduced with the combined therapy of Siddha and biomedicine along with dietary advice and standard quarantine care. The subject had all the peculiar clinical features of Covid 19. Nilavembu kudineer (NVK) was administered twice daily at the dose of 60 ml along with the prescribed biomedicine. Qualitative SARS-COV-2 RT-PCR test was used as the confirmatory test for Covid 19 along with basic haematological and biochemical parameters. After the initiation of integrative medicine, the subject showed improvement symptomatically and gradual disappearance of symptoms without adverse effects. RT-PCR after 14 days of therapy reported negative and the subject was greatly relieved. This case report suggests the importance of safer and effective integrative drug therapy using Traditional Siddha Medicine and biomedicine.
