Neikkuri examination in kalleeral noi (Liver disorders) has revealed the involvement of uyir thathu or life force ‘Pitham’ and ‘Pithakabam’, which have 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 that a pattern of ‘Pitham’ has shown up at 5 seconds in 81.66% of samples. So, this humour which appeared first is considered as 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 Pithakabam and ended in Pithathil pitham. The remaining cases in this study, 45% of samples showed Pithakabam humour at 8 minutes and followed by Pithathil pitham at 20 minutes. This supports the literary saying ‘Panbaana pithathil sethuma naadi parisithal…………. Kanavayiru porumal manjal noi’. and the remaining humour Kabam and vatham were not shown much in Neikkuri examination. Other diagnostic parameters such as Naadi, Sparisam, Naa, Niram, Mozhi, Vizhi and Malam do not show much significance as this study done in very small population. By this study, the author concludes that in the cases of kalleeral Noi (liver disorder) the humours Pithakabam and Pitham get affected and therefore get excreted through urine which has been detected through Neikkuri examination. And the remaining humour vatha pitham is felt predominantly in the Naadi examination. If the study would be conducted with a larger sample size, it will yield more significant results.
