without comments

About

Siddha Applied Science Institute (SASI) was founded by Sri. Pranaji of Pranashakty International to promote the ancient science of Siddha (Siddha Vaidyam). Sri. Pranaji, comes from a spiritual lineage that has deep roots in Siddha sciences. It is his aim to promote the ancient science of the Siddha’s in a way that’s applicable to the present day world. Science has changed drastically over the years, with many alternative medicines being rediscovered as highly beneficial to people. There has been little efforts to convert Siddha medicine, the oldest of all medical systems into applications that are useful for the present generation. Siddha medicine is considered one of the most practical approaches in treatment. Ayurveda is considered to be an offshoot of this amazing filed of applied medicine. SASI is focused on converging Siddha system of medicine, alchemy and spiritual sciences into a common platform to provide highly effective wellness solutions. In this view SASI has entered into applied research that will lead to development of new herbal drug formulations based on ancient Siddha texts many of them which are still unknown to mankind.

About the ASP

“Pharmacognosy” derives from two Greek words, “pharmakon” or drug, and “gnosis” or knowledge. Like many contemporary fields of science, Pharmacognosy has undergone significant change in recent years and today represents a highly interdisciplinary science that is one of five major areas of pharmaceutical education.

The American Society of Pharmacognosy was founded in 1959 as an outgrowth of the Plant Science Seminar, which itself was established in 1923. The Society is international in scope and brings together men and women dedicated to the promotion, growth, and development not only of pharmacognosy but all aspects of those sciences related to and dealing in natural products. The Society currently has over 1,100 active and associate members. Approximately 40 percent of the active members of the Society reside outside of the U.S. and Canada, and represent more than 60 countries throughout the world. Read the rest of this entry »
