Thanks for writing in.
Its unlikely that the TORCH infection is related to your miscarriages. Torchnil is an Ayurvedic supplement and there are no large, randomized trials which support its use. Tuberculosis as such if present will not cause miscarriages. It will prevent conception.
I think we need to find another cause for your miscarriage. Was a karyotyping done for the fetus? Which trimester was the abortion? Has cervical incompetence been ruled out?
Please get another opinion. I dont think you're on the right track,
