TORCH Infection and Ayurveda Treatment: A Blessing to Infertility
Keywords:TORCH infection, BOH, Herbal management, Pregnancy, Garbha, Ayurveda
Pregnancy and childbirth are the most important phases of a woman's life. In India, approximately 15% of couples are affected by infertility. There are many reasons contributing to infertility and bad obstetric history (BOH), among which TORCH infection is most common. The overall TORCH infection rate was 61.1%, while 32% of neonatal mortality was associated with multiple TORCH infections. Women who have the ability to get pregnant but are unable to continue their pregnancy may also be considered infertile. According to Ayurveda, at the time of the formation of the foetus (Garbha), due to vitiated blood (Shonita), the product of conception expels repeatedly before attaining viability, which is known as Putraghni Yonivyapad. So it is important to achieve a full-term pregnancy with healthy progeny. It is evident that maternal infections play a vital role in the loss of pregnancy. In this article, a 28-year-old patient with two abortions earlier and a TORCH IgG positive was treated with pure herbal medicine for 4 months. The patient conceived after that and attended a full-term pregnancy. During the whole duration of pregnancy, Ayurveda medication for healthy growth and full-term delivery was also continued. Thus, this article represents an example of successful management of TORCH infection through Ayurveda and also emphasises the potential of herbal management in TORCH infection with medicines like dalachini churna, kuberaksha vati, sariva-manjistha phant, and Shatavari churna.
