Neikkuri examination in Thamaraga Noi/ Iruthu Rogam i.e in Iyya ThamaragaNoi – IHD has revealed the involvement of uyirthathu or life force ‘Vatham’ and ‘Pitham’ been altered. This manifestation facilitates the detection of current status of the ailment and to treat it according to the deranged humours. Based on Neikkuri examination in this study, it was observed a pattern of “Pitham” to show up the moment the oil drop is instilled in 59% of samples. So this humour which appeared first is considered to be the predominant one to be manifested in the pattern of Neikkuri. The next pattern developing from the original pattern reveals the secondary humour involved. In that group, the Pitham was followed by Pithavatham and ended in Pithathil pitham. The remaining cases in this study, 39.44% of samples showed Vatham humour at the moment and followed by Pitham. This supports the literary saying “Vaayuvinale Valarumappa Rudrarogam”. But Pitham, Pithavatham and Pithathil Pitham has been observed more than Vatham since it is closely related to the region of Heart (Iruthaya sthaanam) and also due to involvement in hematological system. The deranged humours seems to be dispelled through the urine. And the remaining humour Kabam though naturally feeble was able to be felt through Naadi examination predominantly. Other diagnostic parameters such as Naadi, Sparisam,Naa, Niram, Mozhi, Vizhi and Malam does not show much significance as this study done in very small population. By this study, the author concludes that in the cases of Thamaraga Noi (Iyya Thamaraga Noi – IHD) the humours Vatham and Pitham get affected and therefore get excreted through urine which could be detected through Neikkuri examination. And the remaining humour Kabam is felt predominantly in the Naadi examination. If the study would be conducted with a larger sample size, it will yield more significant results.
