       Litchi
Litchi chinensis Sonn
 

       Litchi's resemble like testicles and are very good in orchitis or hydrocele problems. We have experience in helping cure hydrocele very effectively without the need for surgery, through the natural Pancha Bhoota healing. We advocate the use of litchi fruits for this disease apart from other dietary suggestions.

Ingested in moderate amounts, the lychee is said to relieve coughing and to have a beneficial effect on gastralgia, tumors and enlargements of the glands. It improves digestion. However excessive consumption of raw lychees causes fever and nosebleed. According to legends, ancient people have consumed from 300 to 1,000 per day.

In China, the seeds are credited with an analgesic action and they are given in neuralgia and orchitis and hydrocele. A tea of the fruit peel is taken to overcome smallpox eruptions and diarrhea. In India, the seeds are powdered and, because of their astringency, administered in intestinal troubles, and they have the reputation there, as in China, of relieving neuralgic pains. Decoctions of the root, bark and flowers are gargled to alleviate ailments of the throat. Lychee roots have shown activity against one type of tumor in experimental animals in the United States Department of Agriculture/National Cancer Institute Cancer Chemotherapy Screening Program.
