The author from the study on Sendu Moolam, fulfilled the aim of validating the symptomatology and diagnostic methodology for Sendu Moolam. Out of eight major Siddha diagnostic parameters, Veppam (Warmth), Malam (Stool examination) and Naadi (pulse examination) gave significant data in diagnosing Sendu Moolam and also study on etiological factors, Udal thathukkal and Uyir thathukkal were greatly helpful in arriving at the diagnosis of SenduMoolam. In Malam (Stool) examination, almost all the cases (100%) had Vemmai and Sikkal. This clearly highlights the derangement of Vatha and Pitha Humour in this disease. Whereas in Healthy volunteers, Malam was found to be normal. So for disease patients, providing Pitha balancing drugs along with laxatives will reduce the suffering better at the root level rather giving laxatives alone. In Pulse study, nearly 90% of cases had Vathapitha Naadi with abnormal ratios. And in Healthy volunteers also nearly 33% had Vathapitham but with normal ratio with respect to age, time and season. This study also justifies the words of Sage Therayar that derangement in Vatha and Pitha humour forms the root of Moola noigal and is as follows,"அனிலபித்த தொந்தமலாது மூலம் வராது" - தேரையர். Study on the etiological factors causing this disease gave supportive datas. Out of 30 Sendu moolam patients, nearly 93.34% had the history of exposure to excessive heat, 73.33% of them reported to get anger and frustration frequently, 73.33% of them had the habit of increased intake of Pungent foods and 53.33% had the habit of increased intake of salty foods. Thus most of these factors were highly coinciding and justifying the words of Sage Yugi about the etiological factors for Moola noigal.. In Udal thathukkal, Saaram and Seneer were found to be affected in almost all the cases. This data is supported by modern parameters like Haemoglobin, Blood count, etc. Nearly 56.67% of cases were found to be with low haemoglobin levels. In Uyir thathukal, among Vatha component, Abanan and Viyanan were affected in all the cases and among the Pitha component, Ranjagapitham was affected in all the cases. This again confirms the words of Sage Therayar signifying the derangement of Vatha and Pitha humour. In Sendu moolam, Moolaatharam is primarily affected. Hence drugs that reduce Moolaagni should be selected for treatment. As mentioned by Sage Yugi in his text, application of Kaaram will also be a significant treatment in management of Sendu moolam. During the study, it was also found that almost all the symptoms of Sendu Moolam merely coincides with that of Fourth degree Internal haemorrhoids given in modern disease classification. The author hereby concludes that Siddha diagnostic methodology for Sendu Moolam gives highly fruitful datas and this methods can be implemented with confidence in the forthcoming days for diagnosing Sendu Moolam and treatment.
