The Global Center for Siddha Medicine and Research (GCSMR) aims to promote ancient Siddha medicine, food, and rejuvenation practices worldwide.
Our organization, operating in the United States and India, is dedicated to spreading knowledge for a healthy life. As an initial step, we are establishing the "Center for Advanced Research in Siddha, Varmam, and Integrative Medicine (CARSIVAM)" at Manipal Academy of Higher Education in Karnataka.
This center will facilitate collaboration between Allopathy and Siddha doctors, working together to explore the benefits of both medical approaches in managing chronic health conditions. Through rigorous clinical trials, we will generate valuable data to be published in respected peer-reviewed journals. Join us in this groundbreaking research to advance healthcare for all.

In 2020, the Global Center for Siddha Medicine and Research (GCSMR) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Manipal University in Karnataka, India. As part of this agreement, GCSMR has committed to providing funding of 2.5 Crores Indian Rupees (approximately $345K US$) for the center. Additionally, Manipal Academy has agreed to match this funding. The objective is for the center to eventually become self-sufficient by generating its own revenue, ensuring its sustainability beyond the initial funding phase. This partnership sets the stage for a collaborative effort in advancing Siddha medicine research and promoting its integration with modern medical practices.
