Tamil Paarambariya Maruthuvam at Nattumarunthu Kadai
In current generation, 9 out of 10 kids around the age of 10 years know what is the use of Calpol , Dolo & Paracetamol etc. Unfortunately not even single child knows about Thoothuvalai, Sitharathai or Karpooravalli. All the said plants were part of our gardens and We used to chew few Thuthuvalai leaf when we had cold and never admitted in Hospitals with nebulizer mask on face. Our Ancestors believed that all that man needs for Health and Healing has been provided by God in nature and challenge of the people is just to find it. Our forefathers took that challenge and found 1000s of herbs.
All those necessary Herbs and Greens were added as a part of our regular food cycle and proclaimed the term as "Unave Marunthu" ( Food is medicine ) . When we forget the precious teaching of our Ancestors and started consuming junk foods, ironically medicines have become our regular diets now a days !!! Let's also remember no English medicines are made with complete natural substances, It is only Tamil Paarambariya Maruthuvam which suggest medicines only from nature bestowed by God.
