Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: eScholarship: Gāruḍa Medicine
Bhelasaṃhitā (भेलसंहिता), an ancient work that has survived in only one manuscript and another ninth century fragment, has few references to Gāruḍa-medicine. It has a chapter on the symptoms of poisoning and how to avoid it in the court setting (1,18), references to using snake venom to treat diseases of the stomach (6,13.34), and an interesting section on employing exorcists devoted to Rudra to counteract fevers (6,1.49–50).
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
