Link Samahan • ලින්ක් සමහන්

The Traditional Medical System of Sri Lanka has evolved throughout the centuries, and benefited by a Royal sponsorship from the time of King Buddadasa, onwards (circa 400 A.D). The King was himself an accomplished physician, and through his active participation developed an organized medical system throughout the island which enjoyed full state recognition. A special feature of the indigenous system of medicine of today as it has evolved from the time of King Buddadasa, is that it is a synthesis of a number of systems that existed in the South Asian region, viz: the dominant Ayurvedic system originating in the Indian sub-continent, the Unani system of Greco-Arabian origin, the Siddha system of Dravidian origin, and the Deshiya Chikitsa system, which prevailed in our little island prior to the progressive introduction and influence of Ayurveda, and the other systems. Thus the Sri Lankan indigenous system, which is a composite blend also bears a uniqueness where some of the constituent plant species utilized in the poly-prescriptions are endemic ones, in addition to the species utilized in the other aforementioned systems.

In the Sri Lankan indigenous system, a class of formulations known as PEYAWA, constituting an infusion in boiling water, is one of the most popular remedies for viral fevers and influenza. Within its herbal mix are plants now proven to have a wide range of biological activity.
