Testicular atrophy is known as the shrinking of testes (male reproductive units) located in the scrotum. Some researchers made it clear that the reason for testicular atrophy is old age, underlying medical condition, scrotal trauma, and trauma during hernia repair or even hormonal imbalance is a cause. Although it is tough to cure this disease as it will lead to permanent damage on waiting even more than a few hours. Ayurveda is considered as a miraculous system to cure this disease with its natural herbs. Let us take a look at all the mentioned facts in this study.


Testicular atrophy takes place when the testes shrink. The testes are male reproductive organs located in the scrotum. These are responsible for making sperm and producing testosterone hormone. In case of testicular atrophy, testes get smaller and shrink due to loss of leydig cells (produce hormones-androgen and testosterone) and germ cells (helps passing down information from one generation to another. Beside this when the testes shrink the hormone levels get decreased along with that of sperm count.

As per ayurveda atrophy occurs by sroto dushti (vitiation of channels). According to acharya charaka (ch.vi. 5/23) there are several causes of sroto dushti – the diet and lifestyle that are similar to the properties of dosha means which will aggravate dosha and the diet and lifestyle which are opposite to the properties of dhatus means which will cause depletion of dhatus, all these diet and regimen are the cause of vitiation of strotas.
