“Disharmony is the cause of disease and therefore re-establishment of harmony is the cure” which is the proverb of our ancient system of siddha medicine. Siddha treatises describe disease in man do not originate in himself alone, but also from the environmental influences which act upon him. Our literature supports the fact that suram is established when we go wrong with the nature, in food, Lifestyle, behavior,emotions, etc., internally along with the external environment. Hence siddha text suggests suram under noinilai, and not merely a symptom. so suram may be comparable with fever and its symptoms. Fever in children is one of the most common manifestations of an illness which makes the parents seek medical attention early. Fever can be defined as a regulated elevation in body temperature above the customary set point of the hypothalamic thermostat. Siddha system of medicine which has an indigenous effect in clearing the root cause of the disease will be unique in clearing suram. Hence I hope the trial drug “vettumarankuligai” will be effective in curing suram. Suram may be due to body immune response (or) it can be the presenting feature of serious (or) life threatening disease, hence it develops an importance in clinical approach to the patients in order to distinguish the mild benign illness from those potentially more serious. AIM OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of the drug “vettumaran kuligai” to reduce increased temperature,and its presentations like heat, head ache,chills,muscle pain,malaise etc. OBJECTIVES: 1.
