According to Ayurveda, Orchitis can be correlated to Kuranda Roga and is usually known as Vridhi Roga. Basically phala kosh vridhi (testicular enlargement) is the main characteristic feature of Orchitis as per Ayurveda. Due to jeevanu (bacterias, viruses, etc) there is aggravation of tridosha, kapha aggravation leads to swelling, vata aggravation cause vridhi (increase in swelling) and shoola (pain) and pitta dosha vitiation cause bleeding from the penis after vitiating rakta dosha. So there is a need to boost up the immune system to eliminate jeevanu (infection) that is the main cause of vridhi. For this purpose Planet Ayurveda provides various herbal remedies that we will discuss in the upcoming study below.
