Firstly, the author prepared a protocol for this study work. Then the study was undertaken in 30 selected cases of both male and female in the OPD / IPD of Ayothi Doss Pandithar Hospital of the National Institute of Siddha, Chennai- 47, With the clinical symptoms of flatulence with diarrhea, Hat’red, excited with over anger, external mass in the anus, cramping pain in the posterior aspect of the thigh pallorness, edema, drowsiness, sluggishness and burning sensation in the eyes. It is one of the study work based on “Moola Pitham” disease explained by yugi vaithiya chinthamani to reveal, the etiology, Envagaithervu, Nilam, Kaalam, Sothidam and Manikkadai nool. By the out come of the result of this study work “Moolapitham” is a disease caused by predominantly vitiated pitha humour. From this it is clear, to prevent the ‘Moola pitham’, one should avoid the causes mentioned in the pitha noigal. Neithal nilam is more prone to produce Moola Pitham disease. So, people who are living in neithal nilam should keep the preventing aspects mentioned in this study. The viruchigam rasi persons were more prone to affect by this disease. So, this rasi persons should take care for their well being. The Pitha kaalam i.e. age group between 34 to 66 yrs are mostly affected. Ilavenir and Mudhuvenir kaalam are more prone to produce this disease. So, people should alert to prevent the disease during this period. The people who suffer from Pitha diseases use the herbs which are grown in their living areas which have got plenty of medicinal values. By using these herbs, the intensity of the diseases is getting reduced and hence they get the best remedies from the medicinal herbs. Though, there are many medicines in our siddha literature for moola noigal, the internal medicine for MoolaPitham is mentioned only in Thanvandhiri vaithiyam. The author, in her study has “Moolapugai” as a external medicine as per vaithiya chinthamani, shows tremendous results in reducing the pile mass.
