Abstract
Integrative medicine is an approach to integrated health care that focuses mainly on the patient with the range of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health of the person, which can help people with cancer, persistent pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and many other conditions better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain, and anxiety. It is also a personal strategy that adheres to the uniqueness of the person, their need and their circumstances. Siddha medicine is claimed to revitalize and rejuvenate dysfunctional organs that cause the disease. Kayakarpam, a special combination of medicine and lifestyle, Varmam therapy, Vaasi (Pranayamam), and Muppu the universal salt are the specialties of Siddha system of medicine. Thus, this system connects both spiritual and physical and treats the person, i.e., it concentrates the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being of an individual, also reveals the same hypothesis to the medical systems. Implementation of the integration of both Western and AYUSH can probably be a comprehensive treatment for the global challengeable diseases. The integrative medicine (IM) approach recently reemerged with the hope of providing an affordable and practical solution to the global healthcare crisis. To propagate integration in treatment strategies, a workshop was organized by Siddha Clinical Research Unit, Tirupati, and the events and the feedback are narrated briefly in this article.

Key words: Integrative Medicine; Siddha Clinical Research Unit; Siddha Medicine; AYUSH
